Protecting Children On the Internet
In early 2007 my office did a study that found that over 85% of registered sex offenders in New York City live less than five blocks from schools, and 670 sex offenders live within just two blocks. Some offenders are even closer, permanently residing less than 500 feet away from unwitting parents, educators and children.
Along with several colleagues in Congress, we introduced & passed the KIDS (Keeping the Internet Devoid of Sexual Predators) Act of 2007, a bill to require sex offenders to register their e-mail and instant message addresses with the National Sex Offender Registry. The “Kids Act’ implemented one of my six recommendations to keep a closer eye on sex offenders both near school grounds and online. I also proposed stricter GPS tracking of sex offenders, tougher enforcement of registration laws and more public disclosure of sex offender data.
Sadly, the Internet is the predator's venue of choice today. We need to update our strategies and our laws to stop these offenders who are a mere click away from our children....

BBC: Afghanistan civilian toll jumpsOBAMA ATTACKED BUSH FOR USING TACTICS IN AFGHANISTAN THAT LED TO COLLATERAL CIVILIAN CASUALTIES:
More Afghan civilians were killed in May than any other month since 2007, with 368 "conflict-related deaths", the UN says.
BUT AS THE BBC POINTS OUT - OBAMA IS ACTUALLY KILLING MORE CIVILIANS IN AFGHANISTAN THAN BUSH.
I'M OKAY WITH THAT: WAR IS HELL; WINNING IS MORE IMPORTANT.
WHAT I FIND IRRITATING IS THAT THERE IS NOT ANY OUTCRY FROM THE LEFT.
THIS PROVES ONCE AGAIN HOW HYPOCRITICAL AND UNPRINCIPLED THE LEFT IS: WHEN THEIR TEAM DOES THE SAME STUFF THEY CRITICIZED THE RIGHT FOR IT'S OKAY.
WEINERGATE VERSUS CHRIS LEE IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE.
THE LEFT HAS NO PRINCIPLES EXCEPT SERVING THEIR FACTIONS AND ADVANCING SOCIALISM AND LIBERTINAGE BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
THEY ARE SCUM.
- the New Deal would have ended the depression - IT DID NOT!
- the USSR would be wealthy - but it is defunct, and Russia is doing better than ever
- Red China would be wealthy - but it is defunct, and China is doing better than ever
- Zimbabwe would be wealthier than Rhodesia was - it is not
- Cuba would be wealthier than Puerto Rico - it is not
- North Korea would be a better place to live than South Korea - it is not
THEY NEVER HAVE.
AND THEY NEVER WILL.
BY STIFLING LIBERTY AND THE FREE MARKET, LEFTIST POLICIES ACTUALLY RETARD ECONOMIC GROWTH.
AND WHEN YOU MAKE THE USA MORE LEFTIST - AS OBAMA IS ATTEMPTING TO DO - THEN YOU NOT ONLY MAKE THE USA POORER AND LESS FREE, BUT YOU WEAKEN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY AND WEAKEN THE DEFENSE OF THE FREE WORLD.
BECAUSE THEY THREATEN TO DESTROY AMERICA'S ECONOMY AND THEREBY OUR ABILITY TO DEFEND THE FREE WORLD, OBAMA'S LEFTIST POLICIES ARE A BIGGER THREAT TO THE FREE WORLD THAN GLOBAL JIHAD.
THE WORLD IS A MESS:
- THE MIDDLE EAST TURMOIL SEEMS EVERMORE LIKELY TO LEAD TO GREATER POWER FOR RADICAL MUSLIMS AND ISLAMO-FASCISM;
- THE EUROZONE IS TEETERING TOWARD ECONOMIC DISINTEGRATION;
- IRAN IS GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER TO BECOMING NUCLEAR ARMED.
THAT'S WHY DEFEATING OBAMA IS THE MOST IMPORTANT TASK FOR THE FREE AND WESTERN CIVILIZATION.
Friday, June 10, 2011
THE MFM IS EXPENDING MORE ENERGY SIFTING PALIN'S EMAILS THIS WEEKEND THAN INVESTIGATING WEINER'S OURAGEOUS PERHAPS ILLEGAL AND CERTAINLY LEWD ACTS AND HIS STARTLING MENDACITY OR OBAMA'S HIGHLY SECRETVE AND MYSTERIOUS CV.
PROVING ONCE AGAIN THAT THEY AREN'T IN PURSUIT OF TRUTH; THEY'RE ON THE OTHER SIDE.
- GLOBAL WARMING? TAX CARBON.
- DEFICITS? TAX THE RICH.
- FAILING CAR-COMPANIES? GOVERNMENT TAKEOVERS.
- GREEN ECONOMY FALTERS? GIVE THEM TAX BREAKS.
- TOO MANY UNINSURED? COMPEL THE PURCHASE OF INSURANCE.
- TOO MUCH UNEMPLOYMENT? EXTEND BENEFITS AND INCREASE DEFICITS.
- MSM READERSHIP DOWN? GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES.
AND DESPITE THE FACT THAT SOCIALISM HAS FAILED EVERY TIME AND EVERY WHERE. YEAH, EVERYWHERE:
- RED CHINA VERSUS HONG KONG AND TAIWAN.
- NORTH KOREA VERSUS SOUTH.
- USSR VERSUS RUSSIA.
- RHODESIA VERSUS ZIMBABWE.
- CUBA VERSUS PUERTO RICO.
PEOPLE WHO CONTINUE TO PROMOTE SOCIALIST POLICIES ARE INSANE.
CAN'T BLAME HIM: IT'S BAD AND GETTING WORSE.
THE ONLY HOPE IS IF OBAMA JUMPS SHIP!
THAT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN. UNTIL
WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO TOSS HIM OFF THE BRIDGE IN 2012!
WHY SHOULD MORE PROTESTERS DIE!?
WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER HE IS OVERTHROWN, BUT ONE THING IS FOR SURE:
WE WILL HAVE MORE INFLUENCE WHEN THE DUST SETTLES IF WE DO MORE TO OVERTHROW ASSAD, THAN IF WE JUST WATCH FROM THE SIDELINES AS OBAMA HAS US DOING NOW.
HE'S NOT A LAWYER.
HE SERVED IN THE MILITARY, RETIRING AS A CAPTAIN IN THE AIR FORCE.
HE RAN A BUREAUCRACY, SERVED EFFECTIVELY IN A LEGISLATURE, AND WAS CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF HIS STATE.
HE IS A CONSISTENT CONSERVATIVE ON ALL ISSUES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC.
RIGHT NOW: HE HAS MY VOTE.
AND AS HIS VEEP???
HMMM... ROMNEY, PAWLENTY, BACHMANN, RUBIO, CHRISTIE... DUNNO. GUESS RUBIO WOULD HELP THE MOST.
HERE'S THE IDEAL NEXT WH & CABINET:
- RICK PERRY - POTUS
- MARK RUBIO - VPOTUS
- SEC DEF - JACK KEANE
- SEC STATE - JOHN NEGROPONTE
- SEC TREAS - WILLARD ROMNEY
- ATTORNEY GENERAL - RUDY GIULIANI
- UN AMBASSADOR - JOHN BOLTON
- SEC COMMERCE - JACK WELCH
- SEC INTERIOR - JOE MANCHIN
- SEC HHS - TOM COBURN
- SEC EDUC - BILL BENNETT
- SEC LABOR - TIM PAWLENTY
John Edwards does not want to be deposed this month in a case involving a purported sex tape. The two-time presidential candidate is asking that his scheduled June 20 deposition wait until after criminal proceedings against him conclude.EDWARDS IS AS INNOCENT AS TEDDY JO AND ANTHONY WEINER.
Edwards says in court papers filed Thursday that he wants the delay to protect his right to a fair trial and against self-incrimination.
Edwards is a witness in a privacy lawsuit that mistress Rielle Hunter filed against former Edwards campaign aide Andrew Young. Hunter contends Young improperly took what is believed to be a sex tape that includes Edwards.
Hmmmm.. now it all begins to make sense - why Edwards didn't take a misdemeanor plea deal and instead chose to go to trial:
If Edwards had taken a plea deal then he would have had to testify.
The sex tape probably makes Weiner look tame.
"Hamas is reporting record turnouts for its summer camps for children in 2011.More here.
The 'summer camps,' combining Islamic indoctrination, paramilitary training, and social activities are set to begin again this year as United Nation’s summer camps, considered competition by Hamas, are being openly denigrated by jihadists.
Children and adolescents are an important target demographic for Hamas, from which its future army of terrorists will be recruited. Summer camps are an important means for indoctrinating Gaza's youth with Hamas' jihadist ideology."
The Americans for Peace Now (APN) organization published Tuesday a letter written by actor Leonard Nimoy, best known for his role as Spock in the original Star Trek series and movies, in which the actor supports the establishment of a two-state solution.Clearly, he has been orbiting for a long time now, is uninformed, and clearly uninterested in the polls showing that %77 oppose withdrawals (Hat tip: One Jerusalem). He may not be lying, but he definitely is an uninformed space-head, and his statement is insulting to Americans too.
The 80-year-old actor called upon the American people to support the peace initiative.
"I reach out to you as someone who is troubled to see the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians continue apparently without an end in sight," Nimoy wrote.
"In fact, there is an end in sight. It's known as the two-state solution - a secure, democratic Israel as the Jewish State alongside an independent Palestinian state. Even Israel's nationalist Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, has come to see this as the shape of the future. The problem is how to reach that end point. It's something we should be concerned about - not only as world citizens, but as Americans."
He went on to write that he supports the division of Jerusalem, mentioning 50 other prominent Israelis, including former heads of the Mossad, the Shin Bet and the military who support a two-state solution.
"There is a sizable number of influential voices in Israel saying the same thing… a call for two states for two nations. Their plan includes a Palestinian state alongside Israel with agreed-upon land swaps. The Palestinian-populated areas of Jerusalem would become the capital of Palestine; the Jewish-populated areas the capital of Israel."
But then, I've long grown weary of Star Trek lore, and I began to notice how there are some awkward leftist notions in its theme - belief in one government, for example. No wonder as time went by, I lost interest in the whole franchise. And no wonder he seems to hold such a galling stance.
Scotty, beam him up to the sickbay, please! Captain, set warp drive for level 10 highest speed to somewhere we won't need to hear his boring blubbering again.

'Super Varieties' of Wheat Expected to Boost Yields and Block Deadly Threat to Food Security
ScienceDaily (June 9, 2011) — Five years after the launch of a global effort to protect the world's most important food crop from variants of Ug99, a new and deadly form of wheat rust, scientists say they are close to producing super varieties of wheat that will resist the potent pathogen, while boosting yields by as much as 15 percent.
INNOVATION IS WHY THERE ARE MORE AND A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF HUMANS LIVING LON GER BETTER LIVES TODAY THAN AT ANY TIME IN ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY.
INNOVATION IS INNATE, BUT IT'S ONLY SPURRED WHEN PEOPLE ARE FREE TO INNOVATE - AND ABLE TO BE REWARDED FOR THEIR INNOVATIONS.
IOW: INNOVATION IS A BY-PRODUCT OF LIBERTY AND THE FREE-MARKET.
WHICH IS WHY LEFTIST POLICIES RETARD HUMAN PROSPERITY: LEFTIST POLICIES LIMIT LIBERTY AND THE REWARDS IN THE FREE-MARKET.
WHICH IS WHY I HAVE LONG ARGUED THIS:
IF WE WANT TO MAKE POVERTY HISTORY,
THEN WE HAVE TO MAKE LEFTIST POLICIES HISTORY.
WE NEED TO ERADICATE LEFTISM AND CLIMATE CHANGE HYSTERIA IF WE WANT GLOBAL PROSPERITY.
RUDY DID ALL THE HEAVY LIFTING.
BLOOMBERG HAS COASTED. CRIME IS DOWN ALL OVER THE USA - EXCEPT IN NYC.
BECAUSE RUDY DID SUCH A GOOD JOB, IT WASN'T APPARENT TO EVERYONE, BUT IT WILL BE VERY SOON:
Five people were shot along the boardwalk in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, Thursday afternoon during a mini heat wave that had packed the city’s beaches.
Two of the victims are badly wounded, the authorities said.
The shooting took place around 5:20 p.m. on the boardwalk near Brighton Sixth Street, the Fire Department said.
Saya Suzuki, 30, was just about to sit down inside a boardwalk restaurant with her six-year-old daughter, Sonya, when the shooting began just outside. Ms. Suzuki said she heard about six shots, then grabbed her daughter and saw two teenagers run by her.
“I just picked up my daughter and got away from the bullets,” she said. “It happened so quickly and I had to protect my daughter.”
As the police roped off the scene and combed the boardwalk, Ms. Suzuki, still terrified, stayed in the restaurant for two hours waiting for her husband. She said she had noticed other incidents earlier in the day that worried her.
“I think some gang things were happening because we heard some shots one hour earlier,” she said.
IT TAKES A TOUGH MAYOR TO MAKE A TENDER CITY.
THE TOUGHEST THING BLOOMIE TRIED TO ACCOMPLISH WAS BUILDING A STADIUM ON THE WEST SIDE.
THE SECOND TOUGHEST THING WAS TRYING TO GET THE OLYMPICS.
AND HE APPEASED THE LIKES OF SHARPTON.
AND TOLD US WE CAN'T SMOKE IN PARKS OR EAT TRANS-FATS.
WHILE THE CRIMINALS BEGAN TO MAKE A COMEBACK AND THE FILTH GROWS AND GROWS.
BUT WE GOT BIKEPATHS!!!!
AS THE CRIME EXPLODES THIS SUMMER, MAYBE THEY CAN GIVE NANNY BLOOMBERG A NOBEL PRIZE IN BIKEPATHS.
Sarah Palin is long gone from this capital, what with the new ranch in Arizona and the is-she-running-or-not bus blitz of American heritage landmarks Outside, as Alaskans like to call the other 49 states.ONLY LIB DEMS SEND CROTCH SHOTS - AND LIB DEMS DON'T SEEM TO MIND ONE BIT.
Yet nearly two years after she resigned as governor and nearly three since Senator John McCain chose her as his running mate, Ms. Palin is steering still another wave of national news media attention toward Juneau. On Friday, more than 24,000 pages of e-mails Ms. Palin sent as governor, mostly using private accounts, are to be released in response to public records requests first made in 2008.
OR - TO PUT IT ANOTHER WAY: THEY DON;T SEEM TO MIND SCUM LIKE STUBBS AND CLINTON AND TEDDY JO.
BUT THEY HOLD US CONSERVATIVES TO HIGHER STANDARDS.
THAT'S OKAY: WE HAVE HIGHER STANDARDS FOR OURSELVES THEN THEY DO FOR THEMSELVES.
Via Big Peace. But don't expect Obama to pay any attention.
Exxon Mobil said Wednesday it has discovered an estimated 700 million barrels of oil equivalent at a deepwater well off the Louisiana coast, a major find that a top House Republican argued should push the administration to speed up offshore permitting.
"This is one of the largest discoveries in the Gulf of Mexico in the last decade,” Exxon Mobil Exploration Company President Steve Greenlee said in a statement.
Exxon Mobil made the discovery after the Interior Department’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) approved an application in March allowing the company to resume exploratory drilling. Drilling at the well was halted in the aftermath of last year’s Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
The well is located about 250 miles south of New Orleans in about 7,000 feet of water, Exxon Mobil said.
"Improving understanding of Islam and and encouraging more Muslims to join the force will be top of the agenda for a new Surrey Police association.
Surrey Association of Muslim Police (Samp) also aims to build trust between the Muslim community and police.
The group, set up by 18 Muslim officers and staff working for Surrey Police, has elected Pc Kamran Yaqub, based in Reigate and Banstead, as its chairman."
"We already have a Christian association, a women's association, a black association and now we have a Muslim association."Deputy Chief Constable Craig Denholm, who was presented with a translation of the Koran, said: "The association will perform a very important role internally and help to increase community cohesion through positive engagement."Good opportunity for some prosetylising:
005.051 YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust. Or how about this:005.059 YUSUFALI: Say: "O people of the Book! Do ye disapprove of us for no other reason than that we believe in Allah, and the revelation that hath come to us and that which came before (us), and (perhaps) that most of you are rebellious and disobedient?" Community cohesion?? Divide and rule, more likely! If the police force is so fragmented, what hope is there for the community?More here.

You really do have to wonder whether a few years from now we’ll look back at the first decade of the 21st century — when food prices spiked, energy prices soared, world population surged, tornados plowed through cities, floods and droughts set records, populations were displaced and governments were threatened by the confluence of it all — and ask ourselves: What were we thinking? How did we not panic when the evidence was so obvious that we’d crossed some growth/climate/natural resource/population redlines all at once?THE LEFT HAS BEEN SAYING THIS SHIT SINCE 1968:
“The only answer can be denial,” argues Paul Gilding, the veteran Australian environmentalist-entrepreneur, who described this moment in a new book called “The Great Disruption: Why the Climate Crisis Will Bring On the End of Shopping and the Birth of a New World.” “When you are surrounded by something so big that requires you to change everything about the way you think and see the world, then denial is the natural response. But the longer we wait, the bigger the response required.”
Gilding cites the work of the Global Footprint Network, an alliance of scientists, which calculates how many “planet Earths” we need to sustain our current growth rates. G.F.N. measures how much land and water area we need to produce the resources we consume and absorb our waste, using prevailing technology. On the whole, says G.F.N., we are currently growing at a rate that is using up the Earth’s resources far faster than they can be sustainably replenished, so we are eating into the future. Right now, global growth is using about 1.5 Earths. “Having only one planet makes this a rather significant problem,” says Gilding.
This is not science fiction. This is what happens when our system of growth and the system of nature hit the wall at once. While in Yemen last year, I saw a tanker truck delivering water in the capital, Sana. Why? Because Sana could be the first big city in the world to run out of water, within a decade. That is what happens when one generation in one country lives at 150 percent of sustainable capacity.
“If you cut down more trees than you grow, you run out of trees,” writes Gilding. “If you put additional nitrogen into a water system, you change the type and quantity of life that water can support. If you thicken the Earth’s CO2 blanket, the Earth gets warmer. If you do all these and many more things at once, you change the way the whole system of planet Earth behaves, with social, economic, and life support impacts. This is not speculation; this is high school science.”
It is also current affairs. “In China’s thousands of years of civilization, the conflict between humankind and nature has never been as serious as it is today,” China’s environment minister, Zhou Shengxian, said recently. “The depletion, deterioration and exhaustion of resources and the worsening ecological environment have become bottlenecks and grave impediments to the nation’s economic and social development.” What China’s minister is telling us, says Gilding, is that “the Earth is full. We are now using so many resources and putting out so much waste into the Earth that we have reached some kind of limit, given current technologies. The economy is going to have to get smaller in terms of physical impact.”
We will not change systems, though, without a crisis. But don’t worry, we’re getting there.
Ehrlich is a biologist whose specialization is butterflies. But for 27 years he has promoted himself an expert on ecology and human population. And what are his feelings about human population? He loathes it. The opening page of The Population Bomb (1968) made that memorably clear:WE HAVE NEVER RUN OUT OF RESOURCES.
"The streets seemed alive with people. People eating, people washing, people sleeping. People visiting, arguing, and screaming. People thrusting their hands through the taxi window, begging. People defecating and urinating. People clinging to buses. People herding animals. People, people, people, people."
All those yucky people, deplored Ehrlich in The Population Bomb, have ruined the world. Result? Apocalypse now:
"The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s, the world will undergo famines -- hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now. At this late date, nothing can prevent a substantial increase in the world death rate."
A year later Ehrlich claimed that "most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born." By 1975, he expected, "food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions." He amended his prediction in 1978, perhaps noticing that he and his neighbors were still alive. Those hundreds of millions of people would be starving to death in the 1980s, not the 1970s, he said. Sorry for the delay.
Meanwhile, as Ehrlich awaited -- awaits -- what he called "the Great Die-Off," people's lives kept improving. The world death rate in 1965, measured in deaths per thousand, was approximately 16.4. By 1990 it had dropped to 10. The steepest declines were in Africa, South America and Asia, the regions Ehrlich had predicted would suffer most.
Worldwide, infant mortality keeps declining. Life expectancy keeps stretching. The average human being is better nourished today than at any time in history. Famine due to natural causes (i.e., not caused by civil war or dictatorships) has almost been eradicated. The number of people affected by starvation has been falling for decades. It is one-10th what it was a century ago, even though the world's population has quadrupled.
To convey the full scope of Ehrlich's false predictions would consume this whole page. But here's a small sample. Ehrlich forecast:
- The "extinction" of Lakes Erie and Michigan. (They thrive.)
- "A genuine age of scarcity" no later than 1985, with "supplies of many key minerals . . . nearing depletion." (They're more abundant than ever.)
- "Los Angeles killer smogs" that would wipe out tens of thousands of Angelenos. (No such luck.)
- Global warming severe enough to melt the "West Antarctic ice sheet . . ., raising the level of the sea by 20 feet." (The ice sheet is expanding.)
- Nuclear winter severe enough to plunge the Northern Hemisphere into subzero temperatures. (Been outside lately?)
The list goes on and on and on, lengthening with each book. Ehrlich rarely admits that his prophecies have failed. He just replaces them with new ones. Ehrlich's 1990 book "The Population Explosion," co-authored with his wife Anne, offers this vision:"One thing seems safe to predict: Starvation and epidemic disease will raise the death rates over most of the planet . . . enormous rise in the death rates . . . deaths of many hundreds of millions of people in famines . . . nuclear terrorism . . . epidemics, water shortages . . . local disasters . . . food riots or epidemics leading to a breakdown of transport systems . . . collapse of civilization."
Imagine being told by a doctor that you had incurable cancer and would be dead in a few months. Imagine being told you would suffer horrible symptoms, which never materialized. Imagine being told this for 27 years, even as your health grew steadily better.
THE HISTORY OF HUMAN ECONOMY IS THIS:
ONE OLD LESS-EFFICIENT RESOURCE IS REPLACED BY A NEW MORE EFFICIENT ONE.
MORE PEOPLE - AND A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE - ARE LIVING LONGER HEALTHIER MORE PROSPEROUS LIVES NOW THAN AT ANYTIME IN ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY.
THIS CARTOON SAYS IT ALL:
THE ONLY FREAKING THING THAT STANDS IN THE WAY OF ENDING POVERTY IS SOCIALISM. (LEFTISM. LEFTIST POLICES.)
CHINA BECAME AN ECONOMIC POWERHOUSE WHEN THEY BECAME A FREER MARKET.
CUBA, NORTH KOREA, ZIMBABWE ARE ALL POOR AS A RESULT OF LEFTISM.
THE USSR - THE UNION OF S-O-C-I-A-L-I-S-T SOVIET REPUBLICS WAS POOR; RUSSIA IS RICH.
DITTO EASTERN EUROPE.
ALL BETTER OFF WITHOUT LEFTIST POLICIES.
WHICH IS WHY IS HAVE LONG SAID:
THEN WE HAVE TO MAKE LEFTISM HISTORY."
AND WE NEED TO CONSIGN AGW AND MAN-MADE CLIMATE CHANGE TO THE SAME DUSTBIN AS MARXISM.
IF WE COULD, THEN ENERGY PRICES WOULD COME DOWN AND SO WOULD THE PRICES OF FOOD AND ALL MANUFACTURED AND SHIPPED PRODUCTS.
THAT WOULD DO MORE FOR POOR PEOPLE THAN ALL THE WELFARE PROGRAMS IN ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY COMBINED.
THE PROBLEM IS THAT THERE ARE TOO MANY LEFTISTS -
MEANING THERE ARE TOO PEOPLE BELIEVE THE LEFTIST CRAP THAT IDIOTS LIKE FRIEDMAN SPOUT.
THEY NEED TO HAVE THEIR EYES OPENED.
IT'S POSSIBLE: I WAS ONCE A LEFTIST.
Only now, more than a year after the violent flotilla incident in which terrorists tried to run Israel's blockade of Gaza, has it been conclusively shown that some of the "humanitarian" flotilla participants were armed with guns.I'm sure there are a lot of valid questions waiting for answers about why important evidence has been withheld for at least a year before finally being published. Was even Yediot trying to aid Israel's enemies by withholding the data?
Photos of passengers on the Marmara ship sporting the guns were published on Tuesday in the Yediot Acharonot daily. It is not clear why the photos were not published until now.
Resolution to condemn Assad's crackdown; Refugees flee northern country as Assad sends tanks to quell Muslim Brotherhood rebellion; Erdogan says door open to Syrians escaping violence.IN A WAR BETWEEN ASSAD AND THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, THE ONLY GOOD RESOLUTION IS OF BOTH SIDES LOSE.
THE WEST SHOULD BE ATTACKING ASSAD WITH ALL NECESSARY FORCE - MORE THAN WE'RE USING AGAINST GHADAFI - SO THAT THE REACTIONARY FORCES LED BY THE EVIL MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD CANNOT CLAIM THEY WON AND DEFEATED A STOOGE OF THE WEST.
TOO BAD FOR THE WEST/THE FREE WORLD THAT OUR CURRENT CROP OF LEADERS - A MIX OF WEAK, APPEASING LEFT-LEANING "CENTRISTS" - ARE AIDING THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IN SYRIA, IN LIBYA, AND BEFORE THIS IN EGYPT.
WITH IRAN ON THE VERGE OF GETTING NUKES AND PAKISTAN CLOSER THAN EVER TO COLLAPSING THIS IS SUICIDAL.
QOTD:I WOULD SAY THAT WHAT THEY HAVE IN COMMON IS NOT JUST THEIR ELITISM, BUT THEIR ADHERENCE TO POSTMODERNIST AMORALITY AND LIBERTINAGE.
"Nemesis is always hot on the trail of hubris, across time and space, and the goddess has been particularly busy in destroying the carefully crafted images of Bono, John Edwards, Timothy Geithner, Al Gore, Eliot Spitzer, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Anthony Weiner, and a host of others.
What do their tax hypocrisies, sexual indulgences, and aristocratic socialist lifestyles all have in common?
Collectively, they represent a self-appointed or elected global elite that oversees, lectures about — in sanctimonious fashion — the ethical responsibilities of the redistributive state." --Victor Davis Hanson
POSTMODERN LEFTISTS AREN'T LIBERTARIANS; THEY ARE LIBERTINES.
THE DIFFERENCE IS SIMPLE:
- LIBERTARIANS BELIEVE IN NATURAL LAW - AND THAT SOME THINGS THAT HUMANS ARE CAPABLE OF ARE BAD, WRONG, OR EVIL.
- LIBERTINES BELIEVE THAT MORALITY IS SUBJECTIVE, CULTURALLY RELATIVE - OR A FAIRYTALE.
NATURAL LAW IS AT THE VERY HEART AND SOUL OF OUR AMERICAN CIVILIZATION.
THOSE WHO OPPOSE IT ARE FUNDAMENTALLY UN-AMERICAN.
WE SHOULDN'T EVER LET THEM HIDE BENEATH AND SOIL THE SACRED BANNER OF LIBERTY.
The day after the Government’s Prevent policy decisively rejected the notion that “non violent Islamists” should not be promoted and funded, supposedly as a bulwark against Al Qaeda, we discover that the US Government is actively undermining that policy.US sends ‘radical’ Islam activist to meet British Muslim youths(From The Times/Paywall):
The United States Embassy has caused uproar by flying an outspoken American Islamic campaigner to meet young British Muslims as part of a strategy to help them to reject terrorism. Basim Elkarra is a senior figure in an organisation that has been accused on Capitol Hill of radicalising Muslims and obstructing co-operation with the forces of law and order. British anti-extremism experts said they were shocked that the US Government was introducing teenagers to an organisation that promotes Islamic political activism. Mr Elkarra was due to be sent last month into the London borough of Tower Hamlets, which has a worsening reputation for intimidation by Muslim extremists.Read the rest here: http://hurryupharry.org/2011/06/08/the-us-government-sends-an-islamist-extremist-to-tower-hamlets/
"Two of America’s better known UFO-friendly religions, Scientology and the black nationalist Nation of Islam (NOI), now have more in common than unusual theologies involving intergalactic spaceships. For about a year, NOI leader Louis Farrakhan has been telling his followers to embrace Scientology in order to move closer to perfection in preparation for the end times.
According to a May 31 article in Final Call, NOI’s newspaper, nearly 700 NOI members have become Certified Hubbard Dianetics Auditors, and more will soon be trained in Church of Scientology (COS) techniques “to prepare better servants and saviours of the people by helping to clear up their minds and lives.” COS “auditors” supposedly help people ascend to higher levels of consciousness.
Chip Berlet, senior analyst at Political Research Associates and an expert in millenarianism and the radical right, told Hatewatch that Farrakhan may be embracing Scientology because, nearing 80, he has a limited time left to prepare his followers for their journey to the “Mother Wheel,” and is desperate to see them ready before he dies. In NOI theology, the Mother Wheel is an artificial planet, or huge spaceship, where the saved will live while smaller, divinely guided spaceships destroy everything left on Earth — typically described as including all white people, although NOI has sometimes suggested that a few whites might be saved."Read the rest here: Black Supremacist Nation of Islam Pushes White-Dominated Scientology | Hatewatch | Southern Poverty Law Center

FRANCE AGREES WITH SURREAL ARAB DEMAND ON ISRAEL: "WE'LL NEGOTIATE ONLY IF YOU AGREE TO OUR DEMANDS FIRST!"
French Foreign Minister Juppe addresses Clinton criticism, says that France, US both believe an agreement on parameters must be in place before talks can resume; says he expects "positive developments."THIS IS INSANE.
IT REMINDS ME OF THAT LINE FROM ALICE IN WONDERLAND: "VERDICT FIRST, THEN THE TRIAL!"
JUPPE IS A CORRUPT ANTI-SEMITIC PIECE OF CRAP - AND SARKOZY ALMOST AS DISAPPOINTING AS POPE BENEDICT 16.
GEERT WILDERS IS THE ONLY HOPE FOR A EUROPE THAT STILL CALLS WESTERN CIVILIZATION HOME.
On June 6, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy succumbed to gunshot wounds inflicted a day earlier by an Arab terrorist, Sirhan Sirhan. His daughter later said that this was because of his support for the Jewish state.Be sure to check those out. Among the things told, here's what RFK had to say about the British and their hostility to Israel:
Lenny Ben-David, former head of AIPAC, writes in his blog that “Years later his daughter told me, ‘My father was killed by a Palestinian terrorist [Sirhan Sirhan] because of his strong support for Israel.’ He was killed on the first anniversary of the 1967 Six Day War."
Ben-David links to another blog that contains excerpts from a series of articles written by RFK for a now-defunct Boston newspaper, after his visit to “Palestine” in March 1948.
The British government, in its attitude towards the Jewish population in Palestine, has given ample credence to the suspicion that they are firmly against the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine.I'm glad someone from America recognized the British for what they've been, and so far, still are in their approach to Israel, and their congratulation to that horrorist at the border post certainly tells something.
When I was in Cairo shortly after the blowing up of the Jewish Agency [March 11, 1948] I talked to a man who held a high position in the Arab League. He had just returned from Palestine where he had, among other things, interviewed and arranged transportation to Trans-Jordan for the Arab responsible for that Jewish disaster. This Arab told him that after the explosion, upon reaching the British post which separated the Jewish section from a small neutral zone set up in the middle of Jerusalem, he was questioned by the British officers in charge. He quite freely admitted what he had done and was given immediate passage with the remark “Nice going.”

AND SPITZER IS EYING THE JOB.
IT WOULD BE TRULY AWESOME TO SEE THEM BATTLE IT OUT IN THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY!
EITHER WAY, THE LIBERALS IN NYC WOULD BE SURE TO GET THE MAYOR THEY SO RICHLY DESERVE!
BTW: THESE TWO IMMORAL SLIMEBALLS ARE TWO OF THE UGLIEST MEN IN NYC. THE ONLY WAY THEY GOT EVER ANY WAS WITH MONEY AND POWER - NEVER WITH THEIR INNATE CHARM OR NATIVE SEX APPEAL.
(AND WEINER WAS ONLY HAVING CHEAP PHONE SEX. MAYBE HIS WIFE REALLY IS A LESBIAN LOVER OF HILLARY - AS IT WAS LONG RUMORED!? AND IF SO, THEN MAYBE PHONE/TWEET SEX WAS ALL HE COULD HAVE AND NOT JEOPARDIZE THEIR CHARADE!?!?)
UNDERSTANDABLE: NO ECONOMIST WANTS HIS FINGERPRINTS ON THE OBAMANOMICS DEBACLE.
WORST ECONOMY SINCE THE DEPRESSION.
(WHY IS TURBOTAX-TIM GEITHNER STAYING? I GUESS HE CAN'T GET A BETTER JOB. PLUS: HE ISN'T AN ECONOMIST.)
COULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED TO A WORSE GUY.
IF HE WAS A REAL MAN, THEN HE'D RESIGN.
BUT THEN REAL MEN DON'T SEND PENIS PIC'S TO STRANGERS.
Average ice extent for May 2011 was 12.79 million square kilometers (4.94 million square miles). This is 210,000 square kilometers (81,000 square miles) above the previous record low for the month, set in May 2004
Of course, those of us informed as to Islam's various methods of Islamic supremacism are not surprised by the above contention.
But there are a few "surprises" in the essay. One of those "surprises," yet another of America's Presidents who understood the threat of jihad:
...[Theodore] Roosevelt offered this historical perspective in 1916 on the consequences for Western civilization of succeeding, or failing to repel jihad conquerors:
How few history textbooks today present this perspective - even though most history texts laud Theodore Roosevelt for his promotion of conservationism with his setting aside land for nature preserves and national parks.The civilization of Europe, America, and Australia exists today at all only because of the victories of civilized man over the enemies of civilization…[including] those of Charles Martel in the 8th century [over Arab jihadists] and those of John Sobieski in the 17th century [over Ottoman Turkish jihadists]. During the thousand years that included the careers of the Frankish soldier [Martel] and the Polish king [Sobieski], the Christians of Asia and Africa proved unable to wage successful war with the Moslem conquerors; and in consequence Christianity practically vanished from the two continents; and today nobody can find in them any ‘social values’ whatever, in the sense in which we use the words, so far as the sphere of Mohammedan influence [is]…concerned.”...
Protestors for hire? Demonstrators along the Syria-Israel border were paid thousands of dollars by President Bashar Assad’s regime to take part in Sunday’s riots, Syrian opposition activists charge.If he really bribed them in dollar currency, then it's your tax money at work, unless he paid them with dinars. This is apparently how he can deflect some of the flak he gets from within - by turning people against Israel with the anti-semitism that unfortunately can affect even the opposition - and divert attention from the violence he's subjecting the public to in Syria.
Israeli officials later reinforced the claims, accusing the Syrian regime of encouraging protests along the northern border.
Sunday’s riots were an attempt “to divert attention away from the massacre in Syria,” one official charged. “The Syrians will be held accountable for these events.”
Late Sunday, Syrian officials claimed that 23 people were killed and 350 were wounded after the IDF fired at protestors aiming to rush the border fence earlier in the day. However, the army dismissed the figures, claiming that they were inflated.
Washington-based members of the Reform Party of Syria said intelligence sources close to the Syrian government in Lebanon informed them that the protesters on the Syrian side of the Druze community of Majdal Shams were in fact poverty-stricken farmers paid by the Assad regime.
According to the sources, the farmers migrated over the last few years from drought-stricken northeast Syria to the south. They reached the Israel-Syria border on Sunday in the aims of reenact “Nakba Day” events, the sources said.
The Syrian opposition group claimed that each farmer was promised $1,000 for showing up at the rally and $10,000 to their families if they are killed by IDF fire.
THE ONLY HING THAT CAN STOP ANOTHER RECESSION IS A DEBT AND B8DGET D EAL ALONG THE GOP LINES.
ANYTHING ELSE AND WE FALL INTO A DEEPER RECESSION.
THE BALL IS IN OBAMA'S COURT: IF WE STUMBLE, THEN IT IS HIS FAULT.
US seeks direct talks with Taliban's Mullah OmarI THINK THIS IS AWFUL - AND REVEALING:
American officials have set a goal of direct negotiations with Mullah Omar, the leader of the Taliban, prompting Washington to approach intermediaries to broker meetings within months.
IF OBAMA WOULD CHAT WITH MULLAH OMAR, THEN OF COURSE HE WOULD WANT ISRAEL TO CHAT WITH HAMAS AND WORSE.
NO GOOD CAN COME WITH CHATTING WITH THESE KINDS OF PEOPLE.
THEY NEED TO BE ERADICATED OR HUMBLED TO THE POINT OF UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER.
NOTE: IT IS NO SURPRISE TO ME THAT OBAMA WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A DEAL WITH THE LIKES OF MULLAH OMAR; ANYONE WHO:
- ADMIRED EDWARD SAID,
- LET RASHID KHALID BABYSIT FOR HIM,
- PRAYED FOR 20 YEARS WITH WRIGHT,
- WORKED ALONGSIDE FARRAKHAN AND AYERS,
- HIRED SAMANTHA POWER,
- AND TRIED TO HIRE CHARLES FREEMAN
AND OF COURSE OBAMA HAS ALSO TAKEN THE ARAB SIDE AGAINST ISRAEL
OBAMA IS A BAD PERSON, AN AWFUL PRESIDENT. AND A HORRIBLE LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD.

Portugal's governing Socialist Party has admitted defeat in the general election.
Socialist leader Jose Socrates said he accepted responsibility for the defeat and resigned as head of his party.
The victorious centre-right Social Democrats (PSD) led by Pedro Passos Coelho are expected to form a majority with the conservative CDS.
The new government must implement a demanding austerity programme as a condition for an EU bail-out.
PORTUGAL JOINS BRITAIN, FRANCE, GERMANY, SWEDEN AND HUNGARY.
A defeat for Mr Sócrates after six years in office would mean another election loss for the centre-left in Europe, leaving only Spain, Greece, Austria, Slovenia and Cyprus with socialist-led governments in the EU.PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE FT ARTICLE.
AND SPAIN WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY MOVE RIGHT IN THE NEXT ELECTION!
MR. OBAMA: ARE YOU WATCHING!?!?!?!?
Two teenage Palestinians were indicted in the murder of five members of the Fogel family from the West Bank settlement of Itamar.Let me again add my voice to those who support the death penalty for jihadist monsters like the ones who committed the horrifying murder, no matter their age. In fact, they're both of what's considered adult age when reaching 18. I'd say that's one more reason why the death penalty should be established for them to be subject to, and send them to face God's law.
Amjad Awad, 19, who worked as a laborer in Israel, and Hakim Awad 18, a high school student, were indicted on Sunday in a West Bank Military Court for the murders of Udi Fogel, 36, and Ruth Fogel, 35, and their children Yoav, 11; Elad, 4; and Hadas, 3 months.
The men have reportedly confessed to the March 11 murder and reenacted the crime, and military prosecutors say there is forensic evidence linking them to the scene of the crime, including DNA samples and fingerprints, Haaretz reported.
They were also charged with stealing weapons, breaking and entering, and conspiracy to commit a crime, according reports. They are residents of the West Bank town of Hawarta, located near Itamar, and have been connected to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, as have several members of their families.
"I'm proud of what I did," Ynet quoted Amjad Awad as saying just minutes before the hearing. "I don't regret what I did, even if it means I'm sentenced to death."
Israel does not have the death penalty expect for convictions for genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, crimes against the Jewish people, and treason in wartime, though some officials have called for the men to be sentenced to death if found guilty.
Two sons -- Roi, 8, and Yishai, 2 -- were sleeping in a side bedroom and were spared. A daughter, Tamar, 12, returned home at midnight from a youth group program to discover the massacre.
As you may have heard by now, San Francisco will be voting this November on whether or not to ban circumcision in the city.Those pictures are so repugnant I can't even look at them for long, if at all. And if proponents of the ban are only citing Jews and not Muslims, then I wonder if they'll even remotely frown whenever an Islamist performs the ritual following whatever judgement is made in November. In fact, I wonder if they even care about females, the real victims of circumcision in the Islamic world, whenever it happens to them. Why do I doubt they care about what Ayaan Hirsi Ali went through?
Defenders of the measure say it’s all about “human rights” and “protecting babies” from unnecessary procedures.
But critics suspected there was something vaguely anti-Semitic about the whole proposal, since among Jews (and Muslims, as well) circumcising male babies is a religious duty, not just a mistaken medical procedure.
And aside from that, the comic put out to coincide with what this now poisoned city looks destined to go through with gives the medium a very bad name.
Update: I see that last year, CBR spoke about this trash, and had the gall to ask if the world is ready for it, without even telling whether at that time, there was any anti-semitism or other prejudices early in the publication. Now, in this newer take they make, there's one commentor, if any, who says:
I’m still trying to figure out why [Matthew Hess], a gay author who can’t naturally have any children of his own, is pro-abortion but anti-circumcision. With circumcision – the kid lives. If he needs more pleasure with his partner, there are plenty of drugs out there for that. He cannot blame his parents forever.I guess the author really hates life, doesn't he?
