Blowback

It’s a tossup as to whether Bubba Clinton is full of himself or simply full of s**t. My guess is both. Sunday’s hissy-fit on FOX did absolutely nothing to raise my opinion of Slick Willie even one iota. If I had been sitting where Chris Wallace was, I would probably be in Secret Service custody right now and Beelzebubba would be missing a few teeth. Stay out of my space, dude!

Regardless, the blowback from this interview is making itself felt across the political spectrum. The Donks are rallying behind their ”Golden Boy Who Can Do No Wrong” and are preparing to wage jihad against the entire world, if need be.

This is a war the Democrats cannot win and Bubba is about to lead them into a quagmire. All I want to know is .... how did Karl Rove manage to convince Bubba to make a complete ass of himself on national TV? It must be that new thought-ray machine that BushCo recently deployed (ya think, Skipper?). Ssshhhh! Don’t tell the Donks though. Let’s just watch the lemmings gallop into the sea behind their Fearless Leader ....

“The notion somehow for eight months the Bush administration sat there and didn’t do that is just flatly false - and I think the 9/11 commission understood that. What we did in the eight months was at least as aggressive as what the Clinton administration did in the preceding years. We were not left a comprehensive strategy to fight al Qaeda.”

-- Secretary Of State Condoleeza Rice

“The only order we got from [Clinton] after the Cole was to put together a target list for air attacks. What I was involved in could in no way be called a full-fledged plan to attack and overthrow the Taliban.”

-- Michael Scheuer, who led the CIA’s hunt for Osama Bin Laden under Clinton

“Yesterday Bill Clinton did exactly what Democrats need to do in this election—to stand up to the right-wing and tell the truth. We will not let the Republicans twist history and distort reality. We’re sick of playing defense against a Republican leadership that uses national security to scare people to win elections. We’re not going to be pushed around, spun, and defamed by right-wing extremists and those whom they use to disseminate their propaganda.”

-- DNC Chairman Howard Dean

“What surprised me most about the Clinton meltdown yesterday was that no one told him to pull up his socks. This is a man who never goes anywhere without staff, lots of staff. Was there no one there to see that his pants were hiked up too high and his socks were pulled down too low and the flesh on his legs was showing?”

Ew!

For once in my life, I agree 100% with the munchkins at PETA. Eating cockroaches is ... like ... GROSS, dude! Everyone knows you are supposed to break out yer roach clip and SMOKE it, not chew on it. Now ... don’t bogart that joint, my friend. Pass it over to me*.

imageimagePETA Slams Cockroach Eating Contest
CHICAGO, Sept. 25 (UPI)

An animal rights organization is asking a suburban Chicago amusement park to cancel plans to hold a live cockroach-eating contest next month.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says it has been flooded with calls and e-mails protesting the upcoming contest at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Ill., the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Last week Six Flags announced that any visitor who ate a live, three-inch Madagascar hissing cockroach at this year’s Halloween Fright Fest would receive a pass allowing them to go to the head of the line for any ride in the amusement park.

In addition to the free pass offer, Six Flags said it planned to host an open-invitation contest for those who wanted to try to break the Guinness world record for the most baked Madagascar cockroaches eaten in a single minute.

The current world record of 36 roaches was set five years ago. “We’re asking them to cancel (this) gratuitously cruel practice, which is really just a tired gag from ‘Fear Factor,’” says Jackie Vergerio, a PETA spokeswoman.

Purple Rage

For the record, I’ve always thought Chris Wallace had a permanent smirk on his face. It has nothing to do with his personality. It’s just the way his face is shaped with a small chin and large mouth that always seems to curve up at the sides. He couldn’t get rid of that look if he tried.

I’m throwing this post wide open for all the animals out there to drop-kick Slick Willie Clinton and his temper tantrum on Fox News yesterday ... or feel free to defend him if you believe he did everything possible to get Osama Bin Laden and fight terrorism.

The way I read it, Clinton is saying, “Why couldn’t those Eeeeevil Republicans do in eight months what I was unable to do in eight years?”

“That’s the difference in me and some, including all of the right-wingers who are attacking me now. They ridiculed me for trying. They had eight months to try, they did not try.

I want to know how many people in the Bush administration you asked, ‘Why didn’t you do anything about the Cole?’ I want to know how many people you asked, ‘Why did you fire Dick Clarke?’ We contracted with people to kill him. I got closer to killing him than anybody’s gotten since.

And you got that little smirk on your face and you think you’re so clever, but I had responsibility for trying to protect this country. I tried and I failed to get bin Laden. I regret it, but I did try and I did everything I thought I responsibly could.”

Silence Of The Hams

Today the Pope is meeting with Muslim diplomats from Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Turkey and Indonesia to try to soothe the hurt feelings and try to make the poor little Muslim babies stop their temper tantrums ... and plead with them to stop killing nuns, if it’s not too much trouble of course.

I’m not Catholic but I am a Christian and I am offended by Muslims shooting nuns in the back in Somalia and raping and killing little Christian girls in Indonesia. In fact I am so offended I am declaring a “fatwar” against all Muslims overseas. For every Christian who is killed, a Muslim city will be bombed to rubble - starting with Teheran. We must take the battle to the infidels. Kill them all and let I AM THAT I AM sort them out.

Silly thought and impractical to boot ... but it does sound like a great idea on paper. Unfortunately, the idea will get no backing from Christians - especially the leaders of Christian countries. Which brings us to the point of Michael Reagan’s editorial this week. Why is the Pope being left hanging out to dry by the leaders of the so-called “Free World”? Not a one has stood up and defended him.

The leader of the Church Of Christ has been abandoned by all. I can think of no more embaressing and shameful act in response to the Muslim temper tantrums than this. Time is growing short. Pretty soon we are all going to have come down on one side of the fence or the other. The era of the mugwumps* is fast coming to a close ....

* - A politician who either could not or would not make up his mind on some important issue, or who refused to take a stand when expected to do so. Hence the old joke that a mugwump is a person sitting on the fence, with his mug on one side and his wump on the other.

imageimageHow Many Divisions Has the Pope?
by Michael Reagan

Joseph Stalin is alleged to have asked contemptuously just how many divisions the pope had at his disposal. The answer came after the Soviet dictator’s death when the Berlin Wall came crashing down and Eastern Europe came out from behind the Iron Curtain thanks to Pope John Paul II, my father Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher – the phalanx that drove a spike through the heart of Soviet tyranny .

Pope John Paul II had no military divisions, but he had a huge army of people yearning for freedom who responded to his message that united they could prevail over a master who commanded vast military forces. Those forces eventually proved helpless in the face of the people’s determination and will.

Today the question might be, “How many supporters does the pope have among the world’s leaders?” Shamefully, the answer is none. Assailed all across the globe by millions of Muslims for quoting a few passages from a debate featuring the 14th Century Byzantine emperor Manuel Paleologos II – next-to-last emperor of what had been the Eastern Roman empire—Pope Benedict XVI has been left standing alone among the leaders of the Western world despite his warning that they face a foe determined to subjugate them and their citizens.

Writing in the September 20 Front Page Magazine, Robert Spencer reminded the West’s leaders just how much they owe to Pope Benedict XVI, the man they have left hanging in the wind that is blowing like a typhoon from the world of radical Islam

Spencer, director of Jihad Watch and author of “Onward Muslim Soldiers: How Jihad Still Threatens America and the West” wrote: “In choosing Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger to succeed Pope John Paul II as Pope Benedict XVI, the Catholic Church has cast a vote for the survival of Europe and the West. ”

He quotes historian Bernard Lewis as warning “Europe will be Islamic by the end of the century,” and observes that the pope is unlikely to be happy about that eventuality.

“Late in 2003 the semi-official Jesuit magazine La Civiltà Cattolica departed from John Paul II’s policy toward Islam and published a scathing criticism of the mistreatment that Christians suffer in Islamic societies,” wrote Spencer. “It represented the first indication that any Catholic officials recognized the dimensions of the religious conflict that jihadists are waging against Christians and others around the world.”

He adds that “La Civiltà Cattolica pointed out that ‘for almost a thousand years Europe was under constant threat from Islam, which twice put its survival in serious danger.’ Now, through jihad terrorism and demographics Islam is threatening Europe’s survival yet again — and it looks as if now there is a Pope who has noticed. Maybe in Europe the resistance is just beginning.”

You wouldn’t think so from the wall of silence that has surrounded the West’s leaders, including our own President Bush. Not one of them has sprung to the pope’s defense in the face of the violence and threats made against the pope by Muslims all over the world.

The pope was dangling out there all by himself. There is not one leader in any part of the world – left, right, center or anywhere in between—standing up for the pope who, as Spencer noted has “dared to speak more clearly about the threat that Islam poses to Western civilization than his predecessor — for all his many and remarkable gifts — ever quite managed to do.”

All this proves the point I have been making for a long time: the world fears Islam and its adherents. In an attempt to spur a dialogue between Christianity and Islam the pope quotes a Byzantine leader from 1391 to make his point about the futility of violence between religions and what do we get?

We get a dead nun, churches burned, the leader of the world’s billion Catholics burned in effigy, hordes of angry Muslims demonstrating in the streets and demanding that the pope be hunted down and slaughtered, all of which proved the point stressed by Manuel Paleologos II, in the 14th century.

And worst of all, we get silence from the leaders of the besieged West.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T

This Venezuelan “diplomat”, Mr. Maduro, shows up late, without a ticket, scrambles to get one, then starts raising hell at the security checkpoint, so the TSA folks decide he needs a more thorough checkout. Yet our government apologizes for this “regrettable incident.”

You know ... there used to be a time when we didn’t take crap off of slimey lizards from third-world banana republics. Back then other countries treated us with a little respect. Whatever happened to change all that?

I’ll tell you what I think happened and when this current disrespect started. It all started in 1976 when too many of you voted for Jimmy Carter (I didn’t) and we wound up four years later looking like complete jerks with no cojones or brains. The world has laughed at us behind our back ever since. Carter’s legacy is that of a man with no grasp of geopolitics ... a total fool.

Ronald Reagan fixed a lot of that and we were gradually regaining our dignity and respect around the world. Then along came Bill Clinton with his stained blue dresses, interns and cigars. His behavior may not have been all that derelict ... at least until he lied to a grand jury. Clinton’s legacy is merely an extension of Carter’s ineffectiveness in international affairs. Think Somalia or Bosnia.

You may not realize it but the rest of the world sees our President as the symbol of America. He is the icon out front representing all of us and if he is naive, confused and easily manipulated like Carter or distracted, unattentive and uncaring like Clinton what do you expect the world to think of us? Is it any wonder that petty tyrants like Chavez and certifiable lunatics like Ahmadinejad feel free to dance around on the world stage and stick their tongues out at us?

Now, you might think that with a strong-willed President like George W. Bush, we’d be shown a little more respect wouldn’t you? You would be wrong ... and it’s not entirely Bush’s fault, believe it or not. Look at it from an outsider’s viewpoint. They witnessed firsthand the disarray and confusion of Carter and Clinton’s policies overseas and only barely managed to keep their mouths shut during the Reagan-Bush years.

They saw the November, 2000 election with the whining Democrats contesting the results all the way up until September 11, 2001. The Democrats tried their best in those eleven months to castrate President Bush with constant backbiting. Then they had to shut up after 9/11 ... for a little while. Gradually they have returned to the hatred and bitterness over that election showing total disrespect for the office of the President.

So you see, to the typical Frenchman, German, Italian, Venezuelan, Indian, Spaniard or Egyptian the President of the United States is a joke. As if Carter and Clinton weren’t enough to convince them, they see high-profile Hollywood actors and musicians verbally spitting on the President publicly. They see and hear the venom coming from Americans like Cindy Sheehan, Sean Penn, Natalie Maines and yes, even Al Gore visiting overseas and telling them what an idiot the President is.

None of this is George W. Bush’s doing ... all he did was win an election that was closely contested. Since then, he has steadfastly tried to make sure there is not another 9/11. Has he done everything right? Probably not, but neither has he done everything wrong like the naysayers pronounce. Does he deserve all the name-calling and childish criticism he has received over the last five years from these “critics”? Absolutely not.

Nobody’s perfect and Bush would probably be the first one to admit that he has made mistakes. In fact, I think he did just that several months ago. Regardless, we stand to lose a lot more than our dignity as a nation if this continues. We are losing the respect of the world and it is demonstrated quite well by Chavez and friends like the one in the story below.

This is not about George W. Bush. It is about the office of the President of the United States. Our bad choice in two previous Presidents and the current internal disrespect shown by Bush-bashers only serves to chip away at our national identity and reduce the power of the President.

I sincerely hope those who have spent five years hating Bush will remember this when their man or woman gets elected one day and they realize the world is no longer listening to us and the office of President of the United States Of America carries no weight overseas at all.

Leader of the free world? Not a chance. We are fast losing all respect anyone overseas may have had for us and future Presidents will pay the price. Those who are obsessed with a blind hatred of George W. Bush don’t know it yet but in their attempts to bring the man down, they are bringing the office down as well. Goodnight America ... and Good Luck.

Venezuela: U.S. Held Foreign Minister
NEW YORK (AP) - September 24, 2006

imageimageVenezuela’s foreign minister said he was illegally detained for 90 minutes at a New York airport Saturday by U.S. authorities whom he accused of treating him abusively and attempting to frisk him.

U.S. and U.N. officials called the incident regrettable but said Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro had been identified for “secondary screening” — an added security check that can kick in for a variety of reasons.

“We were the object of an illegal detention by the U.S. government,” Maduro told reporters at Venezuela’s mission to the U.N. “We were detained during an hour and a half, threatened by police of being beaten.”

Maduro said the authorities at John F. Kennedy International Airport at one point ordered him and other officials to spread their arms and legs and be frisked, but he said they forcefully refused. He said his passport and ticket were retained for a time, and finally given back to him. But he said the incident prevented him from traveling home Saturday.

Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke denied that Maduro was mistreated. “There’s no evidence to substantiate any sort of abnormality in the screening process.” Knocke said in Washington that Maduro was referred for further screening but never reached that section of the airport. “He began to articulate his frustration with secondary screening right after he went through the magnetometer,” he said, referring to the walk-through metal detector. “Port Authority officials confronted him when the situation became a ruckus.” Knocke did not elaborate.

Airlines check passengers names against watch lists and apply certain criteria — such as paying for a ticket with cash — to direct passengers to a more intensive, or “secondary,” screening process. A U.N. diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly, said that Maduro’s trip was delayed because he had showed up late without a ticket, prompting the screening.

“We can confirm that a regrettable incident occurred at John F. Kennedy airport for which the U.S. government has apologized to Foreign Minister Maduro and the government of Venezuela,” U.S. State Department spokesman Tom Casey said. Maduro told the reporters that his government has been in touch with U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan about the incident and was gathering a team of lawyers to challenge a detention that he said violated international law.

Monday Night Party

As Hank Junior sings, “Are you ready for some football?” Get ready for Super Bowl XLI-½. It’s all happening this Monday Night at 8:30pm ET on ESPN. It will be the first time the Saints have played a regular season game in the dome since the 2004 season. Even better, the Saints are 2-0 this season and Monday night’s game will be against the Atlanta Falcons, also undefeated at 2-0.

In addition to the sellout crowd of 68,000, there will be over 1,100 media representatives from around the world. Yes, even Al-Jazeera is going to be there. The NFL is promising quite a show with a few surprises. Hopefully Janet Jackson will be absent. It’s all hype and hoopla but I intend to watch at least part of the extravaganza just for the pure entertainment. GEAUX SAINTS!

Superdome Ready For Glamorous Return To NFL
NEW ORLEANS (SPORTS ILLUSTRATED) - Saturday September 23, 2006 12:30PM

The Louisiana Superdome is back in business, more than a year after Hurricane Katrina’s devastation. On Monday night, the iconic symbol of New Orleans will put the newsreels of storm-inspired misery behind it and get back to what it was built for—big-time events.

Unlike its relatively low-key dedication ceremony in 1975, Monday’s coming-out party promises to be a star-studded, media-heavy event. On the field, it’s a matchup of unbeaten archrivals, the Saints and the Atlanta Falcons. Off the field, it’s an opportunity to exorcise some of the demons in the soul of a city that suffered through one of the nation’s worst natural disasters.

The glitz began long before the game. Television networks began broadcasting from the city days in advance. The national anthem Monday night will be sung by local favorites Irma Thomas and Allen Toussaint, with Kermit Ruffins on trumpet. The Goo Goo Dolls, Green Day and U2 will perform before the game, and the Southern University marching band will provide the halftime show.

imageimage

The pregame coin toss will be handled by former President George H.W. Bush, who was nominated for the presidency in the building at the 1988 Republican convention. A cadre of 150 Katrina first responders will stand with Bush. Blanco, former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue and his successor, Roger Goodell, and Mayor Ray Nagin—a Saints fan since the team first took the field in 1967 also are expected. “It’s certainly a lot bigger than the normal Week 3 Monday night game,” said NFL director of corporate communications Brian McCarthy. “In terms of production, scope and interest it resembles a Super Bowl production a lot.”

That’s a shocking difference from Aug. 29, 2005, when Katrina’s winds ripped the roof from the stadium. Some 30,000 hurricane refugees eventually were sheltered there. By the time the last of those survivors left the Superdome almost a week later, it was a wreck—and an enduring vision of chaos and depravity. Seventy percent of the roof had failed, and 3.8 million gallons of water had to be pumped out of the Dome and its garages. With no air conditioning, mold and mildew grew quickly.

There were those who felt the Superdome should be demolished after the hurricane. But building a new arena would have cost about $600 million, and in a cash-strapped state that was not likely. The Federal Emergency Management Agency paid for $115 million worth of repairs. The state put up $13 million, as required by FEMA. The Louisiana Stadium & Expedition District refinanced a bond package used for other sports facilities in the area to secure $41 million, and the NFL contributed a $15 million grant. Total: $184 million.

Quote Of The Day

“As Americans we must always remember that we all have a common enemy, an enemy that is dangerous, powerful, and relentless. I refer, of course, to the federal government.”

That quote has generated a firestorm at Marquette University and freedom of speech has been censored and thrown out the window by a certain dipshit philosophy professor there.

Key quote:

Thus ‘60s leftists and their spiritual children (and grandchildren) think themselves free to ban any sort of speech they think “offensive” or “hate speech” or “against human rights.” And of course, they think they are the ones who get to define what is “offensive” or “hate speech” or “against human rights.”

Traditional liberals are people you can talk to and disagree with. ‘60s leftists are people convinced that no discussion is needed, indeed that discussion is dangerous, and that if you disagree with them you should be shut up.

Not to be outdone, the proud American patriot (and Presidential candidate) who spoke those noble words has an army waiting to take on the University and they’re hopping mad and ready to kick some butt .... as soon as possible after lunch, that is.

Key Quote:

Free speech “ZONES”? There are free speech (and, presumably, non-free-speech) ZONES? That must be the in the really small print section of the Bill of Rights. Silly me - I thought the whole US was a free speech zone.

Wow, any article that can work the word ninny into it is ok in my book. that is a word that is never used enough.

The Shadow Knows

He’s back home in Venezuela ... and he hasn’t stopped babbling yet. I certainly hope Jimmy Carter, Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte and Cindy Sheehan are real proud of their little buddy. It’s funny, but I haven’t heard a word out of any of them in the last few days. Have they finally realized their South American friend is a certified loon? I doubt it - because then they would have to admit that they are just as insane themselves for befriending this crackpot.

Chavez Says President Bush Should Resign
CARACAS, Venezuela - September 23, 2006, 1:45 AM EDT

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez launched yet another verbal assault against President Bush upon returning from a highly charged U.S. visit Friday, calling on the American leader to resign. “He should renounce the presidency if he has any dignity. The president of the United States has failed completely,” Chavez said at the inauguration of a natural gas project in northwestern Venezuela.

It was Chavez’s first appearance since returning from the United States, where he called Bush “the devil” at the United Nations’ General Assembly and later criticized him in a speech to supporters at a church in Harlem. “The imperialist government of the United States says we have failed but they are the ones that have failed in everything you see,” he said Friday.

He accused the Bush administration of fueling terrorism, claimed that both the CIA and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration were “infiltrated” by drug traffickers, and urged people to divest their dollars because new bills were being “fabricated.” In an interview broadcast Friday Chavez kept up his attack.

“I think it was a rather humorous speech,” Chavez told TV and radio host Tavis Smiley in a PBS broadcast. “People were smiling.” But then added, “(Bush) considers himself a god. And that is a terrible manipulation, since this is obeying interests that are against God. And since he considers himself like God, when you call him the devil, it is just to strike a balance.”

Osama Bin Laden Dead?

Is he really dead, at last? Are the French making this up? We’ll probably never know for sure. He may have been dead for years. They’ll never tell us if he were. The only thing that concerns me is if they manage to turn him into some holy martyr or some such. We already have enough problems with Muslims and their bloody “jihad” crap.

When are we going to take the gloves off and teach these idiots a lesson they’ll never forget? Osama Bin Laden is a non-factor and has been for years. This crap we’re getting from the Middle East doesn’t revolve around one man.

It is a culture war and we’re getting our butts whipped because the bleeding heart Liberals are afraid to offend the ragheads. Horse-crap! If they want to come conquer my little part of the world they better bring plenty of ammo. I will be glad to send them to join Osama in a dirt nap. Lock and load ....

France Orders Probe Into Bin Laden Death Report Leak
PARIS (Reuters) - September 23, 2006

imageimageFrance’s Defence Ministry said on Saturday a secret service report saying al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had died could not be confirmed but said it would launch an inquiry into the leak of secret documents.

The Defence Ministry issued the statement after a French regional newspaper, L’Est Republicain, published a report quoting a French secret service report as saying Saudi Arabia is convinced al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden died of typhoid in Pakistan last month.

“The information published this morning in the L’Est Republicain newspaper relating to the supposed death of Osama bin Laden cannot be confirmed,” the Defence Ministry said.

“The Defence Minister (Michele Alliot-Marie) has asked that an inquiry be carried out to determine the origin of the leak that can be punished by criminal charges.” The newspaper printed what it said was a copy of the report dated Sept. 21 and said it was shown to President Jacques Chirac, Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin and France’s interior and defence ministers on the same day.

“According to a usually reliable source, the Saudi services are now convinced that Osama bin Laden is dead,” the document said. “The information gathered by the Saudis indicates that the head of al Qaeda was a victim while he was in Pakistan on Aug. 23, 2006, of a very serious case of typhoid which led to a partial paralysis of his internal organs.”

The report, which was stamped with a “confidential defence” label and the initials of the French secret service, said Saudi Arabia first heard the information on Sept. 4 and that it was waiting for more details before making an official announcement.  A senior official in Pakistan said no foreign government had shared information with Pakistan that would back up the report of bin Laden’s death.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
