Joystick Jihad

In spite of the fact that the Supreme Ayatollah-You-So in Iran has told Muslim men that it is bad to play with their joysticks during Rama-Lama-Ding-Dong, it appears the little pea-brained buggers still have a need to play with something. They now have their very own video game called ”Night Of Bush Capturing”, released on the web by an organization linked to Al-Qaeda, Global Islamic Media Front ....

(SITE Institute) - September 15, 2006 - A first-person perspective computer game called “Night of Bush Capturing,” was released to jihadist forums today, Friday, September 15, 2006, by the Global Islamic Media Front, a jihadist mouthpiece, and visual and print media organization. The game, which is a modification of an older game, “Quest for Saddam,” features six-levels, culminating in a gun battle with a character representing U.S. President George W. Bush.

Each of these stages, given titles such as: “Jihad beginning,” “American’s Hell,” “Searching for Bush,” and “Bush hunted like a rat,” contain a Mujahid with several weapons traveling around a U.S. forces’ camp, which is covered with pictures of Bush, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, and the leader of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah. War nasheeds, jihadist songs, play in the background of each level. Upon completion of the game, “Takbir Allahu Akbar” is shouted.

The Global Islamic Media Front announced recently the game with a video trailer and images of in-game action. According to the advertisement, the game was distributed for “terrorist children”.

Trivial Pursuit

Nearly two hundred years ago in September-October of 1814, the British sailed away from Baltimore after failing to breach the defenses at Fort McHenry. The British had however, been successful at sacking Washington and burning the capitol to the ground. President James Madison barely escaped capture.

A Washington lawyer, Francis Scott Key, watched the bombardment of the Baltimore fort from aboard a British warship where he had gone to secure the release of a Maryland doctor captured by the British during the raid on Washington. Key was released by the British and hurriedly penned a poem that eventually became “The Star Spangled Banner”, our national anthem.

Today’s History Trivia is in four parts. Answering all four will require a little research. Good luck ....

1- How many stars and how many stripes were on the flag that flew over Fort McHenry and which states had been added to the original thirteen by this point in time?

2- “The rockets red glare” refers to what kind of rocket? Where did the inventor of these rockets get the idea for them?

3- Who commanded the British naval forces and what historic voyage did he make upon returning to England after the war?

4- What family connection is there between the defenders of Fort McHenry and another bloody battle that occured on July 3, 1863?

Why Ask Why?

Why is William “Cold Cash” Jefferson still in Congress? Why isn’t he in jail? Why is he running for re-election if he is “under investigation by the FBI”? Why is Mayor Ray “Chocolate City” Nagin endorsing him? Why is Nagin still mayor after his miserable performance during Hurricane Katrina? Why are Democrats allowed to get away with this crap and everyone else goes to jail or is removed from public office? Is there nothing a Democatic politician can’t get away with? Don’t answer that ...

New Orleans Mayor Endorses Lawmaker Under FBI Probe
NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Sat Oct 7, 2006 11:19pm ET

imageimageimageA U.S. congressman from Louisiana, under investigation by the FBI after they found $90,000 in cash in his freezer, was endorsed by New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin on Saturday and vowed that allegations of bribery would not hurt his re-election campaign.

“I have been effective, and I will continue to be,” Democratic Rep. William Jefferson said as he opened his campaign for re-election in November 7 congressional election. “It’s really based on knowledge of the Congress and relationships with members, and that doesn’t change.”

The eight-term Democratic congressman has denied any wrongdoing and has not been charged with any crimes. But the FBI is investigating him for allegedly taking bribes to help promote business deals in Nigeria. Federal agents have raided Jefferson’s Capitol Hill office and his homes in New Orleans and Washington, carting out boxes of documents and the $90,000 in frozen cash.

Two former associates of Jefferson’s have pleaded guilty to bribery charges and agreed to cooperate with investigators. In June, Jefferson was removed from the powerful House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee. Nagin, who an won an uphill re-election bid in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans last spring, told reporters he was returning a favor by endorsing Jefferson.

“He was one of the few elected officials that supported me during the mayor’s race, and I told him that if he needed my support, I would reciprocate,” Nagin said. “Until he’s indicted, I think we ought to presume he’s innocent until proven guilty.”

Jefferson said he was counting on Nagin to help him mobilize votes from the city’s black population, which is scattered around the country after Hurricane Katrina forced most people to evacuate when it struck on August 29, 2005.

“USS George H.W. Bush” (CVN-77)
(Click image for supersize 2100x1500 in popup window)

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Oct. 7, 2006 – Northrop Grumman today christened the nation’s 10th and final Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, George H. W. Bush (CVN 77). The ship’s namesake and 41st President of the United States, George H. W. Bush, attended the ceremony and became the first president in the shipyard’s 120-year history to participate in the christening of his namesake ship.

“I can’t wait to see this remarkable, state-of-the-art vessel go to sea,” Bush said, “and when it does, I want to get permission from the commander-in-chief to be on board. I hope the American people will accept my deepest gratitude for the chance to serve this nation, an honor that touches deep in my heart.”

Several members of the Bush family were on hand for the special occasion, including the former president’s wife Barbara and their daughter, Doro Bush Koch. Mrs. Koch serves as the ship’s sponsor and performed the traditional honor of breaking a bottle of American sparkling wine across the ship’s bow during the ceremony.

President George W. Bush also attended and honored his father during the ceremony as a special guest speaker. “On this proud day,” President Bush said, “the children of George H.W. Bush bless their father’s name, the United States Navy honors his name, and the ship that bears his name sails into this young century as a symbol of America’s strength and freedom.”

Other officials participating in the ceremony included Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld; Secretary of the Navy Donald Winter; Virginia Sens John Warner and George Allen; Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine; Adm. Michael Mullen, Chief of Naval Operations; Ronald D. Sugar, chairman and chief executive officer of Northrop Grumman Corporation; and Mike Petters, president of Northrop Grumman Newport News.

The Pelosi Plan Debunked

imageimagePelosi Promises To “Drain The Swamp”

As Ronald Reagan stated so eloquently in the 1980 debate with another Democratic loser, “There you go again.” Some things never seem to change and the “message” from Democrats is one of those timeless litanies that never alters itself one iota.

Nancy Pelosi is already dreaming of tossing Dennis Hastert out of his comfy offices and assuming the crown of Speakerette Of The House. She even has a “plan” that she intends to pull off in her ”first hundred days”. She’s going to do something no politician has been able to do in nearly two hundred and fifty years, clean up Washington and bring Paradise to all US citizens.

Nancy is counting on a lot of voter disaffection with Republicans next month to translate into new offices for herself (with lots of chocolate) and plum committee assignments for her legion of arse-lickers on the blue side of the aisle. To achieve those aims, Nancy has come up with “ze plan” to fix everything ... and I do mean everything ...

French Intifada?

As you can see from the story below (and especially the picture of Fwench “gendarmes” under attack by a Muslim of African origin), the Fwench are reaping what they have sown. The radical Muslim youth are engaging in a modern-day European version of the Intifada against Fwench police. Look for the government of Jacques Chirac to cave in to the dipweeds any day now. You know they’re going to do it. The only question is ... when.

imageimageMuslims Are Waging Civil War
Against Us, Claims Police Union

(TELEGRAPH-UK) - October 5, 2006

Radical Muslims in France’s housing estates are waging an undeclared “intifada” against the police, with violent clashes injuring an average of 14 officers each day.

As the interior ministry said that nearly 2,500 officers had been wounded this year, a police union declared that its members were “in a state of civil war” with Muslims in the most depressed “banlieue” estates which are heavily populated by unemployed youths of north African origin.

It said the situation was so grave that it had asked the government to provide police with armoured cars to protect officers in the estates, which are becoming no-go zones. The number of attacks has risen by a third in two years. Police representatives told the newspaper Le Figaro that the “taboo” of attacking officers on patrol has been broken.

Instead, officers – especially those patrolling in pairs or small groups – faced attacks as soon as they tried to arrest locals. Senior officers insisted that the problem was essentially criminal in nature, with crime bosses on the estates fighting back against tough tactics. The interior minister, Nicolas Sarkozy, who is also the leading centre-Right candidate for the presidency, has sent heavily equipped units into areas with orders to regain control from drug smuggling gangs and other organised crime rings. Such aggressive raids were “disrupting the underground economy in the estates”, one senior official told Le Figaro.

However, not all officers on the ground accept that essentially secular interpretation. Michel Thoomis, the secretary general of the hardline Action Police trade union, has written to Mr Sarkozy warning of an “intifada” on the estates and demanding that officers be given armoured cars in the most dangerous areas.

He said yesterday: “We are in a state of civil war, orchestrated by radical Islamists. This is not a question of urban violence any more, it is an intifada, with stones and Molotov cocktails. You no longer see two or three youths confronting police, you see whole tower blocks emptying into the streets to set their ‘comrades’ free when they are arrested.”

He added: “We need armoured vehicles and water cannon. They are the only things that can disperse crowds of hundreds of people who are trying to kill police and burn their vehicles.” However, Gerard Demarcq, of the largest police unions, Alliance, dismissed talk of an “intifada” as representing the views of only a minority. Mr Demarcq said that the increased attacks on officers were proof that the policy of “retaking territory” from criminal gangs was working.

Mayors in the worst affected suburbs, which saw weeks of riots and car-burning a year ago, have expressed fears of a vicious circle, as attacks by locals lead the police to harden their tactics, further increasing resentment.

As if to prove that point, there were angry reactions in the western Paris suburb of Les Mureaux following dawn raids in search of youths who attacked a police unit on Sunday. The raids led to one arrest. They followed clashes on Sunday night when scores of youths attacked seven officers who had tried to arrest a man for not wearing his seat belt while driving.

That driver refused to stop, and later rammed a police car trying to block his path. The mayor of Les Mureaux, Francois Garay, criticised aggressive police tactics that afterwards left “the people on the ground to pick up the pieces”.

Election ‘08

Hold on tight, gang! We are about to go through two years of “musical chairs” in the West’s leadership. Tony Blair is stepping down next year and the America/Britain alliance in the War On Terror may be in jeopardy. Also next year, Fwance will be having its Presidential elections and Jacques Chirac will be gone, to be replaced by ... who knows? Whoever is elected in Fwance promises to continue the proud Gallic tradition of peeing in the world’s wine glass.

Then in 2008, the two major players go through a turmoil of their own. You all know the US will be electing another President and George W. Bush can finally return to his ranch and a little peace and quiet. What you may not know is that the Russians also have their own little succession question to solve as their Presidential elections in 2008 also take place and Vladimir Putin has expressed a desire to step down.

The nice thing about democracies is that eventually our leaders are replaced and we try something new, unlike the thugocracies in the Middle East and the Third World in general where Dictators, Mullahs, El Presidentes and Kings hang on for life and nothing ever changes. It remains to be seen whether Putin actually does refuse to run again. The future looks cloudy from here. We shall see ...

He who rejects change is the architect of decay.  The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery.”Harold Wilson

imageimageNo Third Term For Putin
(PRAVDA) - October 6, 2006

Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation (CEC RF) today refused to discuss the question of the third presidential term at the nation-wide referendum. This was an expected outcome: all the legal grounds for the refusal aside, it is obvious that the Kremlin is in no need of CEC’s permissions.

It is a known fact that the president mentioned several times not being interested in the third term. And besides, should such a necessity arise he will always have plenty of alternative ways to maintain his political power. Even so a prediction can be made that the closer we come to the year 2008 the more active various political groups would become, including those who lobby for the third presidential term and those who view Putin’s leadership as the best means of securing their own positions.

The proposal to hold a referendum was suggested by the CEC of Central Osetia–Alania, and the question of the proposal takes the following form: “Do you agree or disagree with the fact that the same person cannot hold the presidential post for more than two consecutive terms?” As the CEC RF states that the case according to which no person can hold two consecutive terms as a president can be found in Article 3, Constitution 81 of the Russian Federation. “Therefore the positive response to the question posed for the referendum is already assumed since it only cites the actual constitutional norm,” the CEC’s conclusion claimed. According to the Commission’s view constitutional norms don’t require any further confirmation, especially in the form of a referendum question.

In accordance with the mentioned factors the Commission states that the proposed question cannot be discussed at the national referendum. Liudmila Kuliasova, a member of CEC RF, explained during the discussion process that the referendum decision is accepted when more than 50% vote “for” while the decision is considered not made when the absolute majority votes “against.” This way the decision will not lead to the consequences of judicial nature.

On the other hand Valeriy Gizaev, a representative from the CEC of Central Osetia-Alania, stated that the main goal for the referendum question initiators is to provide the president with a chance to stay for another term or more. “Vladimir Putin will be able to continue the reforms he had begun, he has the strength,” Gizaev continued, “We would like for his administration to continue their work.”

Distractions And Hypocrisy
- by David Limbaugh
(TOWNHALL) - Friday, October 6, 2006

Do you remember how many times during the Clinton years Democrats told us everyone lies about sex and that Republicans were shamefully distracting the Clinton administration by harping on White House cover-ups about sex with an intern? Well, we have far worse distractions now being promoted by Democrats about far less important matters and during far more dangerous times.

When Clinton was president he lamented, “I just want to get back to the work of the American people.” That deserves to be echoed by Democrats today, because we need to have a genuine debate on the issues that really matter—the war against the jihadists, the economy, marriage and abortion, and other vital issues—before the November elections.

Will Democrats, if they regain control of either—or both—houses of Congress, use their newfound majority to further stifle the president’s prosecution of the war on terror? Will they de-fund our soldiers in Iraq and demand a timetable for withdrawal? Their incessant criticisms of Iraq being “the wrong war, wrong place, wrong time” imply that they would.

Likewise, would the Democrats undo the partial reform measures aimed at sealing our borders? Would they try to roll back tax cuts? The public is entitled to know what the Republicans stand for and what the Democrats stand for, and the media is supposed to be the vehicle to make sure that we do. But the media seems uninterested in these issues. Their sole focus seems to be to try to embarrass, if not emasculate, President Bush and the Republicans and return the Democrats to power.

Don’t tell me the media and the Democrats are morally outraged about any aspect of the Foley matter, because that dog just won’t hunt. They have absolutely no moral standing to complain about anyone else’s laxity over deviant sexual behavior.

You know the drill. You’ve read and heard the Democrats’ sordid track record on these matters. They not only didn’t condemn Democratic congressman Gerry Studds for his actual sex—not perverted flirting—with a page; they gave him ovations. Congressman Barney Frank remains a respected Democrat even though an aide ran a prostitution ring out of Frank’s apartment. The Democrats told us that Clinton’s defilement of the Oval Office was a private matter. They champion the advancement of the radical homosexual agenda and safeguard partial birth abortion.

“No, no, no,” they cry. This is about Republican hypocrisy. The GOP pretends to be the party of values and yet embroils itself in this salacious scandal. But Republicans are not guilty of hypocrisy here—they immediately purged Foley when they discovered the extent of his disgraceful misconduct. And if Speaker Dennis Hastert had dropped the axe on Foley earlier, based on what he was told about the initial e-mails, you can be sure that the ACLU, the gay lobby, and apparently indignant Democrats would have cried homophobia at the top of their lungs.

It’s the Democrats who are the hypocrites. Here they are castigating Hastert for not taking action that they would otherwise describe as homophobia. This should be a non-scandal because it doesn’t involve the Republican Party, or in fairness, even its House leader. Based on the facts we know now, it involves Foley alone. Let’s put the brakes on this rush to judgment against Hastert until we see what facts the investigation reveals.

The real scandal is the Democratic Party. As I point out in my book “Bankrupt: The Moral and Intellectual Bankruptcy of Today’s Democratic Party”—and document in detail in their own words—the Democrats are unhinged in their Bush hatred, trying to parade under a false banner of being a “values” party themselves, and have no real political platform at all, except for opposing the Republicans on everything, most of all on the war on terror. And the real disaster would be if Nancy Pelosi becomes speaker of the House or Harry Reid becomes the Senate majority leader. Can anyone really see Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid as responsible war leaders in Congress?

Democrats have disingenuously told us they couldn’t wait to make this election a referendum on President Bush’s policies on national security and the war in Iraq. But they have done everything they could to avoid this discussion because they still have no policies of their own to offer on the war—and they have even less to offer on the economy, which is robust and booming. They will ride the Foley incident as long as they can, but eventually—sometime before the election, they’ll have to give us some answers. Too bad for them. They don’t have any.

Weekly Top 10 List

Top 10 Democrat Sex Scandals in Congress
Source: Human Events Online

10. Sen. Daniel Inouye. The 82-year-old Hawaii Democrat was accused in the 1990s by numerous women of sexual harassment. Democrats cast doubt on the allegations and the Senate Ethics Committee dropped its investigation.

9. Former Rep. Gus Savage. The Illinois Democrat was accused of fondling a Peace Corps volunteer in 1989 while on a trip to Africa. The House Ethics Committee decided against disciplinary action in 1990.

8. Rep. Barney Frank. The outspoken Massachusetts Democrat hired a male prostitute who ran a prostitution service from Frank’s residence in the 1980s. Only two Democrats in the House of Representatives voted to censure him in 1990.

7. Former Sen. Brock Adams. The late Washington Democrat was forced to stop campaigning after numerous accusations of drugging, assault and rape, the first surfacing in 1988.

6. Former Rep. Fred Richmond. This New York Democrat was arrested in 1978 for soliciting sex from a 16-year-old. He remained in Congress and won re-election—before eventually resigning in 1982 after pleading guilty to tax evasion and drug possession.

5. Former Rep. John Young. The late Texas Democrat increased the salary of a staffer after she gave in to his sexual advances. The congressman won re-election in 1976 but lost two years later.

4. Former Rep. Wayne Hays. The late Ohio Democrat hired an unqualified secretary reportedly for sexual acts. Although he resigned from Congress, the Democratic House leadership stalled in removing him from the Administration Committee in 1976.

3. Former Rep. Gerry Studds. He was censured for sexual relationship with underage male page in 1983. Massachusetts voters returned him to office for six more terms.

2. Former Rep. Mel Reynolds. The Illinois Democrat was convicted of 12 counts of sexual assault with a 16-year-old. President Bill Clinton pardoned him before leaving office.

1. Sen. Teddy Kennedy. The liberal Massachusetts senator testified in defense of nephew accused of rape, invoking his family history to win over the jury in 1991. Not to mention a certain incident at Chappaquiddick in 1969 which wasn’t so much about sex as it was about swimming (or lack thereof).
