On an island of unarmed people, the one armed man is king

"On an island of unarmed people, the one armed man is king" -
  • IOW: WHEN ONLY THE SOCIOPATH IS ARMED, THEN THE SOCIOPATH CAN EASILY BECOME A MASS MURDERER ANY TIME HE CHOOSES...
  • THAT'S WHY I WISH THAT THERE HAD BEEN A FEW WELL-ARMED ADULTS ON THE ISLAND TO PROTECT THE KIDS AND TO SLAUGHTER THIS TWISTED MURDERER BEFORE HE KILLED SO MANY...
  • REMEMBER: GUN CONTROL ONLY TAKES GUNS OUT OF THE HANDS OF LAW-ABIDING PEOPLE WHO CAN'T HELP STOP CRIME.
  • LEFTISTS ARE GLEEFUL AFTER A NORWEGIAN NEO-NAZI IS ARRESTED FOR THE MONSTROUS OSLO TERROR ATTACK

    THE LEFT IS SICK - THEY ARE ACTUALLY HAPPY THAT THE TERRORIST IS NOT A JIHADIST.

    BUT, WE ON THE RIGHT - WHO EXPOUNDED ON JIHADO-TERROR AFTER ACCEPTING THAT IT WAS A JIHADIST ATTACK AFTER A JIHADIST GROUP TOOK CREDIT FOR IT (FALSELY, IT TURNS OUT) - WERE NEVER GLEEFUL ABOUT IT. WE WEREN'T HAPPY IT WAS A JIHADIST ATTACK; WE WERE UNHAPPY THERE WAS AN ATTACK AND UNHAPPY WE HAVE SO MANY GOVERNMENTS AROUND THE WORLD DOING TO LITTLE TO PREVENT THEM.

    THAT'S A VERY INTERESTING DIFFERENCE.

    THINK ABOUT IT.

    MORE/UPDATE:

    THEY ARE DEMANDING WE APOLOGIZE AND ACCUSE OF OF "JUMPING THE GUN":
    Ali Gharib / ThinkProgress:
    Right-Wing Pundits Jumped To Blame Muslims And ‘Jihadists’ For Norway Attacks

    BUT MOST OF US WAITED UNTIL A JIHADIST GROUP TOOK CREDIT FOR THE ATTACK (FALSELY) BEFORE WE MADE ANY CONNECTION OURSELVES.

    AND ANOTHER THING:

    "SPLAIN" THIS TO ME:

    • HOW COME WHEN A JIHADIST GROUP TAKES CREDIT FOR A HORRIFYING ATTACK THEY ARE NOT SAYING SOMETHING AWFUL ABOUT THEMSELVES...

    • BUT WHEN ME AND SOME OTHER ANTI-JIHADISTS ATTACK THEM AFTER THEY TOOK CREDIT FOR THE ATTACKS WE ARE SOMEHOW RACISTS WHO ARE SAYING SOMETHING BAD ABOUT THEM!?!?!?!?!?!
    It's insane.

    AGAIN: EVERY TIME THEY STICK A SHOVEL IN THE HOLY LAND THEY PROVE THE BIBLE IS TRUE

    A golden bell ornament that archaeologists believed belonged to a priest or important leader from the Second Temple Period was found in an ancient drainage channel in ruins next to the Western Wall on Thursday, the Israel Antiquities Authority announced.

    The small bell, which has a loop for attaching to clothing or jewelry, was found underneath what is today known as Robinson's arch. The area underneath the arch was the central road of Jerusalem, which lead from the Shiloah Pools in the City of David to the Old City and the Temple Mount.

    The excavations were led by Israel Antiquities Authority and the National Parks Authority and financed by The City of David Foundation, which runs the archeological park across the street.

    “It seems the bell was sewn on the garment worn by a high official in Jerusalem at the end of the Second Temple period (first century CE),” the excavation’s lead archeologists, Eli Shukron and Professor Ronny Reich of Haifa University, said in a statement. “The bell was exposed inside Jerusalem’s main drainage channel at that time, among the layers of earth that had accumulated along the bottom of it.”

    They believed that the bell fell off the official’s clothing while he was walking along the road and rolled into the drainage channel, where it has sat for nearly 2,000 years.

    The archeologists based their findings on the verse in Exodus: “…And upon the skirts of it thou shalt make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the skirts thereof; and bells of gold between them round about” (Ex. 28:34,36)
    EVERY TIME THEY STICK A SHOVEL IN THE HOLY LAND THEY PROVE THE BIBLE IS TRUE - AND THAT THE HOLY LAND BELONGS TO THE JEWS.

    UPDATED: LAME-STREAM MEDIA HAPPILY CONNECTING BREIVIK TO CHRISTIANITY - THOUGH THEY NEVER ATTACH JIHADIST ATTACKS TO ISLAM

    Christian Extremist Is Charged in Norway

    Campers Tricked; Suspect Is Called Anti-Islam

    Rescue workers evacuate young people from the summer school meeting organised by the ruling Labour Party on <span class=Utoeya, an island outside the capital, on Saturday."

    The suspect in Friday’s bomb and shooting attacks was described as a gun-loving, highly religious Norwegian obsessed with what he saw as the threat of multiculturalism and Muslim immigration to the cultural and patriotic values of his country.

    IT'S FASCINATING HOW THE NYTIMES IS RUNNING WITH THE HEADLINE "CHRISTIAN EXTREMIST, BUT THEY'VE NEVER DONE THE SAME THING WITH MUSLIMS TERRORISTS, NOT WITH THE FORT HOOD JIHADIST OR OTHERS.

    WHY THIS DISPARITY IN HOW TERRORISTS ARE TREATED?

    THEY HATE THEY RIGHT-WING AND CHRISTIANITY, BUT NOT ISLAMISM.

    WHY?

    BECAUSE THEY ARE POSTMODERN LEFTIES WHO SHARE A COMMON ENEMY WITH THE JIHADISTS:

    POSTMODERN LEFTISTS AND JIHADISTS BOTH HATE JUDEO-CHRISTIANITY AND WESTERN CIVILIZATION.

    WHICH IS WHY I HAVE LONG ARGUED THAT WE NEED TO ERADICATE LEFTISM IF WE'RE EVER GONNA DEFEAT JIHADISM.

    (AND NO: THIS DOESN'T MEAN KILL ALL LEFTIST OR ALL MUSLIMS!)

    UPDATE #1:

    LOOKIE HERE: 90 MINUTES LATER AND THE NYTIMES HAS CHANGED THEIR ANTI-CHRISTIAN HEADLINE - NOW THEY'RE JUST SMEARING THE RIGHT-WING:

    Norway Charges Right-Wing Extremist

    Campers Tricked; Suspect Is Called Anti-Islam

    THIS MIGHT BE BECAUSE THE FACEBOOK PAGE OF BREIVIK MIGHT HAVE BEEN TAMPERED WITH TO MAKE HIM LOOK MORE LIKE A FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIAN.

    UPDATE #2:

    IT SEEMS BREIVIK WASN'T RIGHT-WING AT ALL -

    BREIVIK WAS A NEO-NAZI,

    AND (CONTRARY TO WHAT WE WERE ALL TUAGHT) NAZISM IS ACTUALLY LEFT-WING; NAZI STANDS FOR "NATIONAL SOCIALIST PARTY" AND SOCIALISM IS LEFT-WING.

    WAS LOU LUMENICK TAKING THINGS OUT OF CONTEXT?

    I read Kyle Smith's review of Captain America in the NY Post, and his review gives a far different take on the movie than Lou Lumenick's does. And Smith disagrees with Lumenick that it goes soft on nazism. So now I'm wondering, did Lumenick take things out of context or lie? Well if he is, then that was a very dumb thing to do, and is symbolic of the paper's sad tendency to making a living on tabloid-ism that dampens the impact of the more serious stuff they publish too (I recall them even running 2 articles that used an anti-French slur "frogs" a few months ago).

    So if the movie does do things right, then I have to feel glad if it's auspicious. I'll try to see it in time, and determine for myself whether Lumenick exaggerated anything for the sake of tabloid stupidity.

    THINKING OF NORWAY TODAY

    Music by Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg:



    RELIAPUNDIT: MINE TOO AOW:

    PEACE TO ALL THE VICTIMS. GREIG: AASE'S DEATH:



    MAY ALL THE WARPED PEOPLE WHO INFLICT TERROR FOR ANY REASON ON ANY PEOPLE ANYWHERE BE STRUCK DOWN.

    WHY ARE LEFTISTS SO RELUCTANT TO CRITICIZE JIHADISTS BUT EAGER TO CRITICIZE RIGHT-WINGERS?

    WHY ARE LEFTISTS SO RELUCTANT TO CRITICIZE JIHADISTS BUT EAGER TO CRITICIZE RIGHT-WINGERS?

    LIKE THE FOLKS AT FIRE DOG LAKE - WHO ARE QUICK TO USE A BROAD BRUSH AND TAR EVERYONE ON THE RIGHT BECAUSE OF THE MONSTER BREIVIK, BUT WHO WOULDN'T DARE EVER SAY A BAD WORD ABOUT JIHADISM.

    I THINK THEY ARE IN DEEP DENIAL.

    THEIR POLICIES HAVE ENABLED JIHADISM AMD ISLAMIZATION TO GROW AND THEY SEEK TO WASH AWAY THEIR GUILT BY ATTACKING US.

    JIHADOST HAVE COMMITTED 17,000+ ATTACKS WORLDWIDE SINCE 9/11/01.

    RIGHT-WINGERS... ER , UM... 2.

    BUT IF YOU READ THE LEFT-WING MOONBATS YOU'D THINK IT WAS THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

    I AM ON RECORD - MANY TIMES, INCLUDING TWO POSTS EARLIER THIS YEAR - OF OPPOSING VIOLENCE AGAINST INNOCENT MUSLIMS. I OPPOSE ALL TERROR.

    RIGHT-WINGERS WHO EMBRACE TERROR ARE EVERY BIT AS BAD AS THE JIHADIST ENEMY.

    I USE THIS BLOG TO ARGUE FOR MORE ACTION BY GOVERNMENT AND THE MILITARY AND THE LEGISLATURES AND THE COURTS. I HAVE NEVER ARGUED FOR MORE EXTRA-JUDICIAL OR EXTRA-MILITARY ACTION.

    LEFTIES LIKE THOSE AT FIREDOGLAKE WHO ACCUSE ME OF SOMEHOW BEING CONNECTED - IN ANY WAY - TO TERROR OR THE INCITEMENT OF TERROR ARE GUILTY OF LIBEL AND SLANDER...

    AND MORONIC SCUM WHO ARE IN DEEP DENIAL ABOUT WW4.

    Jihadism: 17000+ attacks; right-wing extremists - 2

    LET ME MAKE ONE THING PERFECTLY CLEAR:

    I think that jihadism is a real global threat - and one that comes in many forms, not all violent.

    Despite Oklahoma City and Breivik - the only tow right-wing terror attacks I can think of - , right-wing extremism pales in comparison to jihadism and jihadist terror. Jihadists have staged 17,000+ attacks since 9/11 and killed hundreds of thousands of innocents.

    Right-wingers who advocate terror should be shunned and those who plan it should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Those who carry it out - like Breivik, and his accomplices, if he had any (and he likely did!) should be tried and executed - if the laws permits execution.

    Western Civilization from islamization is not served by and cannot be saved by right-wingers who want to kill and/or coerce the enemy outside of jurisprudential or martial settings.

    Outside the theater of war and the courtroom, we can only fight a war of ideas. I condemn all terror and all violence that's extra-judicial and extra-martial.

    ADDENDUM:

    The lame-stream media is almost always super slow to point out when a terrorist is a jihadist; many in the MSM never identify them as such.

    But they are racing to identify the monster who perpetrated the Oslo Attack as a right-winger - even a Christian.

    GEE, I WONDER WHY THERE'S A DISPARITY IN HOW THE PERPS ARE TREATED?

    UK: Scientists Secretly mixing Human and Animal Embryos!

    Scientists have created more than 150 human-animal hybrid embryos in British laboratories.

    The hybrids have been produced secretively over the past three years by researchers looking into possible cures for a wide range of diseases.

    The revelation comes just a day after a committee of scientists warned of a nightmare ‘Planet of the Apes’ scenario in which work on human-animal creations goes too far.

    Figures seen by the Daily Mail show that 155 ‘admixed’ embryos, containing both human and animal genetic material, have been created since the introduction of the 2008 Human Fertilisation Embryology Act.( Tony Blair's government)

    Three labs in the UK – at King’s College London, Newcastle University and Warwick University – were granted licences to carry out the research after the Act came into force.

    All have now stopped creating hybrid embryos due to a lack of funding, but scientists believe that there will be more such work in the future.

    The figure was revealed to crossbench peer Lord Alton following a Parliamentary question.

    Last night he said: ‘I argued in Parliament against the creation of human- animal hybrids as a matter of principle. None of the scientists who appeared before us could give us any justification in terms of treatment.

    ‘Ethically it can never be justifiable – it discredits us as a country. It is dabbling in the grotesque.

    ‘At every stage the justification from scientists has been: if only you allow us to do this, we will find cures for every illness known to mankind. This is emotional blackmail.

    ‘Of the 80 treatments and cures which have come about from stem cells, all have come from adult stem cells – not embryonic ones.

    ‘On moral and ethical grounds this fails; and on scientific and medical ones too.’

    Josephine Quintavalle, of pro-life group Comment on Reproductive Ethics, said: ‘I am aghast that this is going on and we didn’t know anything about it.

    ‘Why have they kept this a secret? If they are proud of what they are doing, why do we need to ask Parliamentary questions for this to come to light?

    ‘The problem with many scientists is that they want to do things because they want to experiment. That is not a good enough rationale.’

    BREIVIK A RIGHT-WING PSYCHO WHO DESERVES THE DEATH PENALTY


    Breivik is an evil right-wing sicko; thank G-d he will be convicted and get the death penalty.

    Oops. There's no death penalty in Norway: it was outlawed in 1905.

    Too bad. Prison is too good for evil twisted mass-murdering scum like this.

    Terrorist scum like this deserves the death penalty - (after a trial and only if carried out by the state).

    All terrorists do: jihado-terrorists or right-wing terrorists like Breivik.

    ANYONE WHO TRIES TO TIE THIS BLOG OR MY VIEWS TO THIS HORRIFIC ACT IN OSLO OR THIS PSYCHOTIC MASS MURDERER BREIVIK IS SCUM

    MY RECORD ON VIOLENCE AGAINST INNOCENT MUSLIMS IS CLEAR:

    EXCERPT #1:

    http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2011/03/either-house-of-saud-misunderstands.html
    WE ARE IN A CIVILIZATIONAL STRUGGLE AGAINST ISLAM.

    NOTE:

    THIS DOESN'T MEAN WE ARE IN A WAR WITH EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM ANY MORE THAN WW2 WE WERE AT WAR WITH EVERY SINGLE GERMAN OR EVEN EVERY SINGLE NAZI.

    BUT JUST AS WE WERE AT WAR WITH NAZISM THEN, WE ARE AT WAR WITH ISLAM NOW.

    THE SOONER A MAJORITY OF US ACCEPT THIS THE BETTER. THE FAILURE TO ACCEPT THIS HAS LEAD US TO WASTE TIME AND TREASURE ON TACTICS AND STRATEGIES THAT CANNOT HELP US WIN - LIKE "DEMOCRATIZING" AFGHANISTAN, A GOAL I ONCE SHARED.

    IF WE WANT TO TURN THE MUSLIMS THERE INTO PEOPLE WHO CAN LIVE UNDER DEMOCRACY AND THE RULE OF SECULAR LAW, THEN WE NEED TO TURN THE MUSLIMS THERE AWAY FROM ISLAM.
    EXCERPT #2:
    http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2011/05/ww4-is-really-return-to-real-ww1.html

    NOTE:

    This does NOT mean exterminate Muslims. This means LIBERATE them from islamism. More than 1 billion people are enslaved to this hideous ideology. We must liberate them.

    CRUSHING Nazism didn't mean exterminating all Nazis or Germans; it did mean eradicating Nazism and bringing the worst perpetrators of Nazi atrocities to justice - summary or military.

    So it must be with islamism.

    Or we will lose.
    MY RECORD ON THIS IS CLEAR.

    THERE IS NO PLACE FOR THE KILLING OF INNOCENTS - OR FOR ANY EXTRA-JUDICIAL OR EXTRA-MARTIAL KILLING.
    • OUT SIDE THE THEATER OF WAR AND WITHOUT A JUDICIAL PROCEEDING KILLING IS MURDER AND MURDER IS EVIL.
    • KILLING IS ACCEPTABLE IN THE THEATER OF WAR AND AFTER JUDICIAL PROCEEDINGS (FOR CRIMES WHICH HAVE THE DEATH PENALTY AT THE TIME OF THE CRIME WAS COMMITTED).
    • UPDATE: RIGHT-WING TERRORIST GROUPS SHOULD BE HUNTED DOWN AND ERADICATED JUST LIKE WE ARE DOING WITH JIHADIST GROUPS.
    ANYONE WHO TRIES TO TIE THIS BLOG OR MY VIEWS TO THIS HORRIFIC ACT IN OSLO OR THIS PSYCHOTIC MASS MURDERER BREIVIK IS SCUM.

    HAVING THIS BLOG AND ARGUING THESE POINTS PROVES THAT I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO WAGE A NON-VIOLENT WAR OF IDEAS, AND CONVERT INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO HAVE EVIL CREEDS - NOT USE VIOLENCE AND KILL THEM.

    NOTE:

    Despite the fact that it is reasonable to presume acts of terror are committeds by jihadists - (because jihadists have committed more than 17,000 terrorist acts since 9/11/01) - I did not immediately assume this was an act of islamo-terrorism.

    After the initial reports of an attack, I accepted the first reports that islamists had taken credit for it at face value.

    This blog's first post on the attack posed islamist involvement as a question - with a question mark, and only after an islamist group took credit did we jump on the bandwagon.

    We regret it.

    IS ANDERS BEHRING BREIVIK REALLY ANOTHER MICHAEL ENRIGHT?

    UPDATE: APPARENTLY BREIVIK IS A LONGTIME RIGHT-WINGER.

    THIS WOULD MEAN HE IS PROBABLY NOT ANOTHER ENRIGHT.

    JUST AN EVIL TWISTED DISGUSTING PSYCHOTIC MURDERER WHO DESERVES THE DEATH PENALTY.


    UPDATED BELOW!


    I THINK MAYBE THERE'S A POSSIBILITY THAT THIS ANDERS BREIVIK IS ACTUALLY A PSYCHOTIC LEFTIST WHO DID THIS HORRIFYING ACT TO DISCREDIT THE RIGHT.


    IOW: A ROGUE FALSE FLAG ATTACK.

    DO YOU THINK THIS IS TOO WEIRD TO BE TRUE!?!?

    DO YOU BELIEVE THAT IT COULD NEVER HAPPEN!??

    ER UM...IT DID BEFORE - IN NYC, AND IT ALMOST WORKED BECAUSE AT FIRST THEY TRIED TO BLAME THE RIGHT:
    Authorities say a New York City cab driver is recovering after being brutally stabbed by a passenger who first demanded, "Are you Muslim?"

    The attacks occurred as New York is in the midst of a contentious debate over plans to build an Islamic community center and mosque a few blocks from the site of the former World Trade Center.

    "I think this clearly demonstrates that hate speech often leads to hate crime when you have the constant vilification of Islam and Muslims on talk radio, in newspapers, on cable news and on the Internet," Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told AOL News.

    Police said Ahmed Sharif, 43, of the borough of Queens was driving his taxi on Manhattan's East Side Monday night when he was hailed by a pedestrian on the street. Roughly one block from his destination, the passenger, identified as 21-year-old Michael Enright, of Brewster in upstate New York, allegedly asked Sharif, "Are you Muslim?" When Sharif said yes, Enright pulled out a knife and slashed Sharif in the neck, face and shoulders, police said.

    Despite his injuries, Sharif was able to lock the attacker in the back of the cab and call for help. The suspect managed to get out of the vehicle, but police quickly located him and took him into custody.
    ONLY ENRIGHT TURNED OUT TO BE A LEFTIST IN FAVOR OF THE GROUND ZERO MOSQUE.

    MORE FROM POLITICO AT THE TIME:

    The apparent anti-Muslim assault on a New York city cabbie by a man shouting “Assalamu Alaikum. Consider this a checkpoint" produced an immediate round of recriminations over its connection to opposition to a New York Islamic Center and an apparent rising tide of Islamophobia.

    But as often at the intersection of politics and violent crime, the story doesn't appear to fit any easy stereotype: The alleged assailant, Michael Enright, is — according to his Facebook profile and the website of the left-leaning media organization Intersections International — a student at the School of Visual Arts and a volunteer for Intersections, which recently produced a statement of support for the Park51 project and is funded by the mainstream, liberal Collegiate Church of New York.

    I think there's a good chance that Breivik will turn out to be another Enright. Only a much more twisted, insane, evil Enright. One who deserves the death penalty - which is sadly unavailable in the EU.

    Stay tuned.


    LIBERALS: "ALL WE NEED TO DO TO IMPROVE THE ECONOMY IS HAVE CITIZENS SEND MORE MONEY TO WASHINGTON SO POLITICIANS CAN SPEND IT"

    IT AL COMES DOWN TO THIS:
    • Liberals think that the only way to get the economy going is if people spend less of their own hard-earned money (on things they want), and instead send their money to Washington DC so that the politicians there can spend it on things the politicians want.
    • Conservatives think that cutting government spending and cutting taxes -- so people that people can keep more of their own hard-earned money -- is what the economy needs. After all, the politicians in Washington DC ALREADY spend way more more than they take in and it hasn't improved the economy one bit.
    Look at it this way: if Keynesian deficit spending - so-called "stimulus spending" - really could stimulate the economy then why hasn't the $5 TRILLION deficit we've racked up the last three years helped at all!? Golly gee whiz folks: between Bush and Obama we've doubled the size of the annual federal budget and increased the debt by $10 trillion and we're still mired in deep doo-doo!? Deficit spending doesn't work and it isn't good.

    Politicians don't(and can't) spend YOUR money more wisely than you do - they never have and they never will. Government isn't the most efficient provider of any goods or services - it is was then we'd all be speaking Russian and flying Aeroflot. There's nothing that politicians, government bureaucrats or unionized government workers do better than a private company. So, we simply shouldn't be sending them more money and making them a bigger part of our economy.
    • The most effective way to increase revenues and decrease the deficit is to get the economy growing; there would be more taxpayers paying more taxes and revenues would increase at the same tax rates we have now.
    • The most effective way to get the economy growing is to DECREASE taxes and DECREASE regulations and DECREASE government spending.
    It worked for Coolidge. Two-out-of-three worked for Reagan.

    It can work again.

    Muslim fundamentalists took credit for it - and we believed them, but the Norwegian cops say that they've caught the camp shooter and can tie him to the bombing.

    He is reportedly describes himself as a conservative Christian and nationalist.


    Stay tuned...

    UPDATE:

    Breivik had set up his own business, Breivik Geofarm, and a month ago had started to run an organic farm in Hedmark in eastern Norway. There he reportedly produced and stored fertilizers that he was able to use in explosives.

    He was known to be active on the internet, expressing extremist Islamophobic views on forums and criticizing immigration policies.

    He recently claimed that politics today was not about socialism vs. capitalism but nationalism vs. internationalism. He argued on a Swedish news website that the media were not critical enough about Islam and claimed that Geert Wilders' Party for Freedom in the Netherlands was the only "true" party of conservatives.

    He argued that socialism was breaking down traditions, culture, national identity and other societal structures and that this in turn made society weak and confused.

    On July 17 he set up a Facebook and Twitter account, posting a single tweet, "One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100,000 who have only interests."

    He claimed to be well-read and worshiped the Norwegian World War II hero Max Manus. On his Facebook profile he listed his favorite books as "The Trial" by Franz Kafka and "Nineteen Eighty-Four" by George Orwell and his favorite television show as "Dexter," a series about a Miami police forensics expert who moonlights as a serial killer of criminals whom he believes have escaped justice.

    ANYONE WHO TRIES TO TIE THIS BLOG OR MY VIEWS TO THIS HORRIFIC ACT IN OSLO OR THIS PSYCHOTIC MASS MURDERER BREIVIK IS SCUM.

    HAVING THIS BLOG AND ARGUING THESE POINTS PROVES THAT I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO WAGE A NON-VIOLENT WAR OF IDEAS, AND CONVERT INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO HAVE EVIL CREEDS - NOT USE VIOLENCE AND KILL THEM.

    NOTE:

    I did not assume this was an act of islamo-terrorism. I accepted the first reports that islamists had taken credit for it at face value. This blog's first post on it posed it as a question, and only after an islamist group took credit did we jump on the bandwagon. We regret it.


    RUBIN/WASH POST:
    ... there is a specific jihadist connection here:

    “Just nine days ago, Norwegian authorities filed charges against Mullah Krekar, an infamous al Qaeda-affiliated terrorist who, with help from Osama bin Laden, founded Ansar al Islam – a branch of al Qaeda in northern Iraq – in late 2001.”


    This is a sobering reminder for those who think it’s too expensive to wage a war against jihadists.

    I spoke to Gary Schmitt of the American Enterprise Institute, who has been critical of proposed cuts in defense and of President Obama’s Afghanistan withdrawal plan.

    “There has been a lot of talk over the past few months on how we’ve got al-Qaeda on the run and, compared with what it once was, it’s become a rump organization. But as the attack in Oslo reminds us, there are plenty of al-Qaeda allies still operating. No doubt cutting the head off a snake is important; the problem is, we’re dealing with global nest of snakes.”

    REMINDER:

    OBAMA HAS STOPPED UTILIZING GITMO AND NOT SENT ANYONE THERE TO BE QUESTIONED - SO WE ARE GETTING LESS INTEL'.

    OBAMA REDUCED THE AMOUNT OF INTERNATIONAL SURVEILLANCE WE ARE DOING - OF PHONE CALLS AND BANK TRANSACTIONS; WE ARE DOING LESS NOW THAN UNDER BUSH AND GETTING LESS INTEL' NOW THAN DURING THE BUSH YEARS.

    AND DESPITE HIS GLOBAL APOLOGY TOURS AND HIS APPEASING OF FATAH AND ASSAD AND IRAN, THE ARABS AND MUSLIMS HATE US JUST AS MUCH OR MORE THAN EVER.

    WE ARE MORE VULNERABLE THAN EVER.

    BECAUSE APPEASING MAKES US LOOK WEAK AND IT ENCOURAGES THEM TO ATTACK MORE.

    WE WON'T BE GETTING ANY SAFER UNTIL WE ELECT A NEW PRESIDENT WHO PUTS OUR SECURITY - AND THE SECURITY OF OUR ALLIES - AHEAD OF APPEASING THE ENEMY AND THE ACLU.

    UPDATE:

    Oslo: 80 dead - and they say it was done by a blond Norwegian!?

    Oslo: 80 dead - and they say it was done by a blond Norwegian!?

    Muslim fundamentalists took credit for it - and we believed them, but the Norwegian cops say that they've caught the camp shooter and can tie him to the bombing.

    He is reportedly describes himself as a conservative Christian and nationalist.

    UPDATE:

    Breivik had set up his own business, Breivik Geofarm, and a month ago had started to run an organic farm in Hedmark in eastern Norway. There he reportedly produced and stored fertilizers that he was able to use in explosives.

    He was known to be active on the internet, expressing extremist Islamophobic views on forums and criticizing immigration policies.

    He recently claimed that politics today was not about socialism vs. capitalism but nationalism vs. internationalism. He argued on a Swedish news website that the media were not critical enough about Islam and claimed that Geert Wilders' Party for Freedom in the Netherlands was the only "true" party of conservatives.

    He argued that socialism was breaking down traditions, culture, national identity and other societal structures and that this in turn made society weak and confused.

    On July 17 he set up a Facebook and Twitter account, posting a single tweet, "One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100,000 who have only interests."

    He claimed to be well-read and worshiped the Norwegian World War II hero Max Manus. On his Facebook profile he listed his favorite books as "The Trial" by Franz Kafka and "Nineteen Eighty-Four" by George Orwell and his favorite television show as "Dexter," a series about a Miami police forensics expert who moonlights as a serial killer of criminals whom he believes have escaped justice.

    UPDATE: HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM...

    ER UM...IT DID BEFORE - IN NYC: AT FIRST THEY TRIED TO BLAME THE RIGHT:
    Authorities say a New York City cab driver is recovering after being brutally stabbed by a passenger who first demanded, "Are you Muslim?"

    The attacks occurred as New York is in the midst of a contentious debate over plans to build an Islamic community center and mosque a few blocks from the site of the former World Trade Center.

    "I think this clearly demonstrates that hate speech often leads to hate crime when you have the constant vilification of Islam and Muslims on talk radio, in newspapers, on cable news and on the Internet," Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told AOL News.

    Police said Ahmed Sharif, 43, of the borough of Queens was driving his taxi on Manhattan's East Side Monday night when he was hailed by a pedestrian on the street. Roughly one block from his destination, the passenger, identified as 21-year-old Michael Enright, of Brewster in upstate New York, allegedly asked Sharif, "Are you Muslim?" When Sharif said yes, Enright pulled out a knife and slashed Sharif in the neck, face and shoulders, police said.

    Despite his injuries, Sharif was able to lock the attacker in the back of the cab and call for help. The suspect managed to get out of the vehicle, but police quickly located him and took him into custody.
    ONLY ENRIGHT TURNED OUT TO BE A LEFTIST IN FAVOR OF THE GROUND ZERO MOSQUE.

    MORE FROM POLITICO AT THE TIME:

    The apparent anti-Muslim assault on a New York city cabbie by a man shouting “Assalamu Alaikum. Consider this a checkpoint" produced an immediate round of recriminations over its connection to opposition to a New York Islamic Center and an apparent rising tide of Islamophobia.

    But as often at the intersection of politics and violent crime, the story doesn't appear to fit any easy stereotype: The alleged assailant, Michael Enright, is — according to his Facebook profile and the website of the left-leaning media organization Intersections International — a student at the School of Visual Arts and a volunteer for Intersections, which recently produced a statement of support for the Park51 project and is funded by the mainstream, liberal Collegiate Church of New York.

    I think there's a good chance that Breivik will turn out to be another Enright.

    UPDATE#2:

    A terror group, Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or the Helpers of the Global Jihad, issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack, according to Will McCants, a terrorism analyst at C.N.A., a research institute that studies terrorism. The message said the attack was a response to Norwegian forces’ presence in Afghanistan and to unspecified insults to the Prophet Muhammad. “We have warned since the Stockholm raid of more operations,” the group said, according to Mr. McCants’ translation, apparently referring to a bombing in Sweden in December 2010. “What you see is only the beginning, and there is more to come.” The claim could not be confirmed.
    UPDATE: 7 DEAD; BLAST FOLLOWED BY SHOOTING ATTACK NORTH OF OSLO

    Big Blast Hits Government Buildings in Central Oslo

    A large explosion shook central Oslo on Friday and blew out the windows of several government buildings, including one housing the office of the Norwegian prime minister, according to local media reports. There were initial reports of several injuries.

    The sound of the blast echoed across the city just before 3:30 local time, and a giant cloud of white smoke continued to rise hundreds of feet into the air over the city as a fire burned in one of the buildings. Reuters said the fire was in the building housing the country’s oil ministry.
    Initial media reports described a chaotic scene as police cleared the area around the building and were searching for additional explosives, according to the daily Aftenposten. Photos and television footage showed a 17-story building with windows blown out and the surrounding street strewn with glass and debris.

    Norwegian media reported that the prime minister, Jens Stoltenberg, was safe.

    The cause of explosion was not immediately clear, but a Reuters reporter described seeing the mangled wreckage of a car near one of the buildings.

    While Norway has seen little political violence in recent years, the country has a small fighting contingent in Afghanistan and was one of several countries cited by Ayman al-Zawahri, the Al Qaeda leader, as potential targets for attack. In 2006, Norwegian newspapers reprinted Danish cartoons that angered Muslims by lampooning the Prophet Muhammad.

    Three Norwegian men were arrested in July 2010 on suspicion of terrorism and were said to be a terrorist “node” in a larger global network, American counterterrorism officials said at the time.

    THE PROPAGANDA OF GUY DELISLE

    We seem to have yet another cartoonist following in Joe Sacco's footsteps, concocting a graphic novel that's intended to take the Islamic/palestinian side during Operation Cast Lead. His name is Guy Delisle, and he's put together a GN called "Jerusalem: Chronicles From The Holy City":
    Drawn and Quarterly's Editor-In-Chief and Publisher Chris Oliveros announced today that his company has acquired world English rights to Jerusalem: Chronicles From The Holy City, a graphic novel memoir from Guy Delisle. The book details the day to day life in Israel within the context of the conflicts that rock the area, based on the year the acclaimed cartoonist spent with his family in East Jerusalem.
    And in what company? And what accompanying religion? Here's the part signaling where his bias comes in:
    Says Oliveros: "Jerusalem: Chronicles From The Holy City powerfully captures the conflict of the Gaza War, a three-week long military strike that resulted in over 1000 Palestinian deaths, while also showcasing olive gardens, check points and the architecture of the region. There has never been a book like it and it will surely become a handbook on the region much like Guy's Pyongyang is for North Korea."
    And which olive gardens would those be too? More importantly though, we see that there's no mention of Israeli side, whether it be people who suffered traumas from the rocket attacks the Hamas fired then (note that Operation Cast Lead isn't mentioned clearly as the name from the time either), or even any Jewish casualties. And according to Jewish Virtual Library:
    On Saturday, December 27, 2008, the Israel Defense Forces launched an airstrike against Hamas terrorist cells in the Gaza Strip. Since the beginning of the operation, Palestinian sources claim, approximately nine-hundred Gazans were killed - most of whom were Hamas militant forces. Israel military officials state that over 500 Hamas gunmen have been killed in Operation Cast Lead's ground incursion.

    Background

    Israel's Operation Cast Lead comes after three years of suffering thousands of daily Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel's southern cities.

    Since the start of the operation, Hamas has increased their number of attacks and has fired hundreds of rockets into Israel. Hamas is firing an average of 80 rockets into Israel each day. Rockets were fired into Ashdod and Ashkelon and, for the first time, Grad rockets have been hitting Beersheba. It is clear that Hamas widened their rocket range in response to the incursion in Gaza.

    Due to Hamas's endless and widespread barrage of rockets on Israeli towns, the IDF Home Front Command has expanded their security precautions to all towns within a 19- mile radius of Gaza.

    Schools in Ashdod, Ashkelon, Beersheba and other southern cities are closed as Hamas continues purposely firing rockets into civilian centers including multiple kindergartens in all major cities. Since the Israeli airstrike began, four Israelis have been killed and over 176 were wounded while hundreds are being treated for shock. Israel's southern citizens have been forced to move into bomb shelters as their community's schools, buildings and roads are destroyed in front of their eyes.

    In two weeks, Hamas has fired 500 rockets into Israel's southern cities. Many of these have been the more deadly Grad katyusha rockets. On January 6 a three-month old girl was wounded from a Grad rocket that was fired into Gedara. On January 8 four people were wounded as a mortar shells were fired at the Eshkol region.
    Will any of this info turn up in Delisle's graphic novel? I've got a sad feeling it won't. See also this Haaretz article from 2009 telling how Hamas admitted around 700 of its own terrorists were killed, and deservedly. And as Israel Matzav notes, the vast majority were terrorists, NOT civilians.

    This was found through CBR's Robot 6 blog, via a contributor named Sean T. Collins, whom I discovered has done some rather odd things. In this old post on his own site from 2003, he supposedly understood Islamic terror:
    Before 9/11, this cowboy president of ours had made it absolutely clear that he was planning on keeping his hands off of not just Iraq, but really every other country on the planet. Remember the whole “no nation building” thing? Back then, he was criticized as being too isolationist by the same people now convinced he’s out to conquer the world. What, then, prompted Islamist terrorists from atomizing 3,000 people that day? Bush’s interventist approach toward Texas?
    But then:
    And as Christopher Hitchens points out, one of the synagogues devastated last Saturday had already been the site of a terrorist attack, back when Reagan and Thatcher were in charge of the US and UK and Saddam was our friend. Unless those terrorists were time travellers, it’s difficult to understand how their actions were caused by the regime change policy.
    Say what? Since when was that awful monster who's thankfully gone now our "friend"? Not only does that veer towards moral equations, it also reeks of "smear by association".

    He also supports Joe Sacco's propaganda, Footnotes in Gaza, and says:
    The fourth thing Sacco does well is portraiture. This book is just as much a Beard Parade (and Mustache Parade, and Grumpy Little Kid Parade, and Wrinkled Old Lady Parade) as R. Crumb’s Book of Genesis Illustrated, and there’s just as much care and attention put into differentiating each from the other. (The exception are the Israeli soldiers in the flashback sequences; they have a uniform build, the shadow of their pith helmets rendering them eyeless and inscrutable. Only the notably monstrous or humane gain individualization.) But even still there are standouts. Take Sacco’s frequent interview subject and companion Khaled: A Palestinian guerrilla marked for death by the IDF and constantly moving from place to place, he nonetheless has a Cheshire Cat serenity in his heavy-lidded face. We frequently see him in repose, including one sequence where he lies immobile in bed, staring directly at the reader as he speaks of his utter exhaustion with his life on the run.
    So on the one hand, the Israeli soldiers are depicted as villains via shadowy illustration, and on the other, either Sacco or Collins or both are referencing the "palestinian" as a guerrilla instead of terrorist or even enemy soldier, and using a tactic to get the audience's sympathy. What a very bad aftertaste.

    And back on the current track, it's despicable that D&Q is giving a platform to potential anti-Israel propaganda while at the same time don't seem to be publishing anything pro-Israel. Some European-born cartoonists really can be despicable.

    Is there such a thing as good food? Maybe...

    A STUDY FOLLOWED 100,000+ PEOPLE FOR 20 YEARS:
    ...foods that contributed to the greatest weight gain were not surprising. French fries led the list: Increased consumption of this food alone was linked to an average weight gain of 3.4 pounds in each four-year period. Other important contributors were potato chips (1.7 pounds), sugar-sweetened drinks (1 pound), red meats and processed meats (0.95 and 0.93 pound, respectively), other forms of potatoes (0.57 pound), sweets and desserts (0.41 pound), refined grains (0.39 pound), other fried foods (0.32 pound), 100-percent fruit juice (0.31 pound) and butter (0.3 pound).

    Also not too surprising were most of the foods that resulted in weight loss or no gain when consumed in greater amounts during the study: fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Compared with those who gained the most weight, participants in the Nurses’ Health Study who lost weight consumed 3.1 more servings of vegetables each day.

    But contrary to what many people believe, an increased intake of dairy products, whether low-fat (milk) or full-fat (milk and cheese), had a neutral effect on weight.
    I WILL TRY THIS FOR A MONTH OR TWO AND LET YOU KNOW HOW IT WORKS - BUT I AM SKEPTICAL.

    HERE'S WHY:

    CNN: Twinkie diet helps nutrition professor lose 27 pounds

    For 10 weeks, Mark Haub, a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University, ate one of these sugary cakelets every three hours, instead of meals. To add variety in his steady stream of Hostess and Little Debbie snacks, Haub munched on Doritos chips, sugary cereals and Oreos, too.

    His premise: That in weight loss, pure calorie counting is what matters most -- not the nutritional value of the food.

    The premise held up: On his "convenience store diet," he shed 27 pounds in two months.

    For a class project, Haub limited himself to less than 1,800 calories a day. A man of Haub's pre-dieting size usually consumes about 2,600 calories daily. So he followed a basic principle of weight loss: He consumed significantly fewer calories than he burned.

    His body mass index went from 28.8, considered overweight, to 24.9, which is normal. He now weighs 174 pounds.

    But you might expect other indicators of health would have suffered. Not so.

    Haub's "bad" cholesterol, or LDL, dropped 20 percent and his "good" cholesterol, or HDL, increased by 20 percent. He reduced the level of triglycerides, which are a form of fat, by 39 percent.

    "That's where the head scratching comes," Haub said. "What does that mean? Does that mean I'm healthier? Or does it mean how we define health from a biology standpoint, that we're missing something?"

    Despite his temporary success, Haub does not recommend replicating his snack-centric diet.

    Haub's sample day
    Espresso, Double: 6 calories; 0 grams of fat

    Hostess Twinkies Golden Sponge Cake: 150 calories; 5 grams of fat

    OBAMA'S INSANE, RACIST AND ANTISEMITIC ANTI-TERROR POLICIES MAKE US LESS SAFE

    VIA DRUDGE:
    the DHS’ own internal documents list predominantly white conservative groups as the most likely terrorists, such as Ron Paul supporters, gun owners, gold bullion enthusiasts, and a myriad of other comparatively banal political interests that are largely the domain of white middle class Americans.
    THIS INSANITY IS JUST LIKE HOW OBAMA'S STATE DEPARTMENT HAD PUT ISRAEL ON THE TERROR LIST.

    THEY'RE IN SUCH DEEP DENIAL ABOUT REAL TERRORISTS, THAT THEY'LL COMMIT ANY ILLOGICAL AND INSANE ACT TO OBFUSCATE THE TRUTH ABOUT ISLAM.

    EVEN SMEAR WHITES AND JEWS WHO COMMIT NEXT TO NO TERROR.

    THIS ACTUALLY MAKES US LESS SAFE: IT MEANS THEY'RE TAKING THEIR EYES OFF THE BALL.

    WHEN YOU ADD THIS TO THE FACT THAT WE'RE GETTING LESS INTEL' (AS A RESULT OF NOT USING GITMO AS MUCH AND NOT EAVESDROPPING AS MUCH - BOTH AS A RESULT OF OBAMA'S POLICIES), THEN YOU GOTTA BELIEVE WE ARE MORE LIKELY TO GET HIT BY A BIG ATTACK.

    NY POST'S TAKE ON CAPTAIN AMERICA MOVIE MAKES ME UNEASY

    The advertisements for the Captain America movie may be patriotic, but the approach of the movie itself, after reading this item on the NY Post, does not sound promising: according to the writer, the movie goes soft on nazism:
    Though the screenplay is safely set in 1943 -- when the country was united against Hitler's Germany after years of debate, thanks to Pearl Harbor -- the film takes great pains to point out that the villain (played by Hugo Weaving) is a rogue scientist whose methods are considered too extreme even by the man who ordered the execution of eight million people.

    Not only is the Holocaust nowhere hinted at in this comic-book version of history (something the similarly fantastic "Raiders of the Lost Ark,'' set in 1936, managed to do) Stanley Tucci's German refugee scientist is given a speech rationalizing the German people's embrace of Hitler. [...]

    Suspicions that Marvel may be going to ridiculous lengths to avoid offending the German market are sort of confirmed in the press notes.
    What?!? Oh, this is just great. When it comes to a movie like this, I wanted to hope it would be done properly in terms of historical allusions and common sense, if anything. Now they're giving me reason to feel very uncomfy about the screenplay and wonder if this too is another victim of political correctness of the most grimy sort.

    I think I need some aspirin.

    JOHN EDWARDS CAMPAIGN OWES FEDERAL TREASURY $2.3 MILLION

    WASH POST:
    The Federal Election Commission says former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards’ 2008 presidential campaign should repay the treasury $2.3 million.

    The commission on Thursday decided to order the repayment. Federal auditors said all but about $200,000 of the total came from federal matching funds the Edwards campaign received.

    The campaign got nearly $13 million in matching funds. Edwards dropped out of the race Jan. 30, 2008. Federal auditors said the campaign understated its cash and overstated its expenses.

    YES, THERE ARE TWO AMERICAS: AN UNJUST ONE WHERE ASSH*LES LIKE EDWARDS THINK THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING - AND OFTEN DO.

    AND THE JUST ONE WHERE THEY DON'T.

    WELCOME TO THE JUST WORLD, JOHN.

    Obama gives Fiat $1.3 billion of taxpayer money

    THE LONELY CONSERVATIVE:

    CNN reports:

    ... Originally, the government committed a total of $12.5 billion to the struggling automaker, Old Chrysler, and the company’s newly formed Chrysler Group. Of those funds, $11.2 billion have been returned through principal repayments, interest and cancelled commitments, the Treasury said. The new Chrysler Group paid back $5.1 billion in loans in May.

    Even though that means $1.3 billion will not be recovered from the bankrupt Old Chrysler, the Treasury called it a “major accomplishment.” …

    Only in the age of Obama is losing more than a billion bucks considered a “major accomplishment.”

    IF THIS MONEY WAS COMING OUT OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY COFFERS - OR GE'S - THEN ALL HELL WOULD BREAK LOOSE.

    BUT SINCE IT'S ONLY TAXPAYER MONEY, THE LEFT COULDN'T GIVE A CRAP.

    INFANTICIDE A GROWING PROBLEM IN MALI

    MALI:
    Here in one of the poorest countries in the world, abortion is illegal and UNICEF estimates only 8 percent of Malian women use contraception.

    Infanticide or attempted infanticide has become the most common crime after theft and assault among inmates at the prison for women and girls in this West African capital.

    Earlier this month officials said 25 out of the 122 female prisoners were being held for killing or attempting to kill their children.
    THE LACK OF CONTRACEPTION AND WEALTH ISN'T THE PROBLEM: THEY LACK MORALITY.

    OH, BTW: MALI... IT'S A MUSLIM NATION.

    AL QAEDA IS DRAWING PRO-TERROR COMICS AND CARTOONS

    Buck Sexton at The Blaze reports that one of the worst terror organizations on the globe is exploiting the medium for promoting jihad:
    With Zawahiri at the helm, Al Qaeda (AQ) continues to churn out propaganda of all kinds, but this most recent addition is unusual in that its main audience appears to be the very young. Get ready for Jihad cartoons.

    These screen capture photos are a first glimpse of an Al Qaeda created comic book that are scheduled for release soon. SITE Intelligence Group reported that on July 17, an AQ member in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) member posted about the upcoming cartoons in a Jihadist forum. [...]

    The posting in the Jihadist forum indicated that the comic will be officially sanctioned by AQAP at the highest level. It appeared that the poster planned to go through the AQ hierarchy before releasing the comic, probably to enhance its credentials among the young Jihadist community and thus appeal more to its intended audience.
    This is truly abominable. Not only is al Qaeda still around, they're exploiting and shaming the medium for indoctrination for jihad.

    OBAMANOMICS IS DESTROYING OUR ECONOMY

    Applications for unemployment benefits rose by 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 418,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, dipped to 421,250

    Applications have topped 400,000 for 15 straight weeks, a sign of sluggish hiring. Applications had fallen in February to 375,000, a level that signals healthy job growth. They stayed below 400,000 for two months. But applications surged to an eight-month high of 478,000 in April and have declined slowly since then.

    PER CAPITA, "PALESTINIAN" ARABS GET MORE AID THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD

    WHY DO THE SO-CALLED "PALESTINIANS" GET THE MOST AID OF ANYONE IN THE ENTIRE IN THE WORLD?

    BECAUSE EXTORTING AID IS THEIR PRIMARY BUSINESS.

    THEY EXTORT FROM THE WORLD BY RUNNING THE BIGGEST PROTECTION RACKET IN THE WORLD.

    IT'S IMPLICIT IN ALL THEY SAY AND DO; IT'S HOW THEY OPERATE, SAYING - FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES: "AS LONG AS ISRAEL DOESN'T DO 'A,B &C', THEN THERE'S GONNA BE HELL TO PAY!"

    AND THE COWARDLY APPEASERS OF THE WORLD PAY UP.

    IT REWARDS TERROR. IT ENCOURAGES MORE TERROR. IT'S IMMORAL. IT'S SICKENING.

    FRANCE AND GERMANY AGREE ON GREEK BAILOUT, BUT CAN THEY CONVINCE THE EU AND THE BANKS AND THE MARKETS?!?

    NYTIMES:
    The agreement will be presented to the other leaders of the 17 member euro zone at the meeting Thursday afternoon, after a week of market turbulence in which borrowing costs spiked in Italy and Spain.

    Many see the meeting as a moment of truth, particularly for Mrs. Merkel, whose caution has been blamed by some for the region’s failure to stem the crisis.

    “Nobody should be under any illusion: the situation is very serious,” JosĂ© Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, said earlier in the day. “It requires a response. Otherwise the negative consequences will be felt in all corners of Europe and beyond.”

    The commission was arguing for a plan that would have private creditors swap Greek bonds that mature before 2019 for new 30-year bonds, thereby prompting a selective default, according to an official briefed on the negotiations who was not authorized to speak publicly.

    The terms of the plan would imply a 20 percent reduction in the value of Greek bonds, the official said, a change that would raise tens of billions of euros to be directed to support the Greek bailout.

    In addition, the other countries in the euro area and the International Monetary Fund would contribute 71 billion euros, or $100 billion, to the rescue plan, up to 2014.

    THE LAST MINUTE MEETING TOOK 7 HOURS!

    THE MARKETS WILL HAVE THE LAST SAY - AND MAY VOTE NO.

    STAY TUNED. WE WILL KNOW IN A FEW HOURS IF WE ARE HEADED FOR ANOTHER GLOBAL RECESSION...

    THE "GIFT" OF OBAMACARE

    IN THE MAIL:
    We've been "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents.

    It was written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke.

    BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING - AND REPORTING YOUR INTERNET ACTIVITY TO HR

    Companies have long used criminal background checks, credit reports and even searches on Google and LinkedIn to probe the previous lives of prospective employees. Now, some companies are requiring job candidates to also pass a social media background check.

    “All we assemble is what is publicly available on the Internet today," said Max Drucker, chief executive of Social Intelligence, which reviews the online activity of companies' job applicants.

    A year-old start-up, Social Intelligence, scrapes the Internet for everything prospective employees may have said or done online in the past seven years.

    Then it assembles a dossier with examples of professional honors and charitable work, along with negative information that meets specific criteria: online evidence of racist remarks; references to drugs; sexually explicit photos, text messages or videos; flagrant displays of weapons or bombs and clearly identifiable violent activity.

    “We are not detectives,” said Max Drucker, chief executive of the company, which is based in Santa Barbara, Calif. “All we assemble is what is publicly available on the Internet today.”

    The Federal Trade Commission, after initially raising concerns last fall about Social Intelligence’s business, determined the company is in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, but the service still alarms privacy advocates who say that it invites employers to look at information that may not be relevant to job performance.
    IF YOUR VIEWS AREN'T PC, THEN YOU WON'T GET A JOB.

    IF THIS DOESN'T CHILL AND KILL FREE SPEECH AND BLOGGING THEN NOTHING WILL.

    Obama and Holder sneak Somali terrorist into NYC for a civilian trial in criminal court

    Did you know that a suspected Somali terrorist was sneaked into a U.S. criminal court in New York City over the July 4th holiday?

    Most people don’t. While we were all distracted by celebrating our Independence Day President Obama was sneaking foreign terrorists into our civil court system instead of taking him to Guantanamo.


    A few weeks ago, Reuters reported that Somali terrorist Ahmed Abdulkadir Warsame was brought to New York City to face criminal charges in our home-based court system on July 4th, yet.

    Warsame was captured in April in the Gulf region and was held aboard a U.S. Naval ship until July being questioned by the military and the FBI.

    The Obama administration did not tell the American people ahead of time that a terrorist was being placed in our civil court system. This is precisely the situation that the Guantanamo facility was created to prevent. Our court system couldn’t put murderers like Casey Anthony and OJ Simpson away but Obama is going to start bringing terrorists into our homeland and into our deeply flawed courts?
    Obama and Holder don't give a crap about our safety, but they care very deeply about mofo jihado-terror scum like this piece of crap Somali getting every possible benefit if our legal system.

    They should both be impeached for this.
