muzzies usa protest a doll … too close to the truth?

‘She’ll blow your brains out’: Muslim girl greeting card parodies talking Arab doll with terrorist bomb jokes

‘She’ll love you to death’ says birthday card based on headscarf-wearing talking dolls for Muslim girls

By Joshua Gardner

A greeting card company hoping for a laugh used a doll meant for Muslim girls as the basis for a birthday card that depicts a headscarf-wearing little girl as a terrorist.

In a pink hijab, or headscarf, and flowered dress, a doll is depicted on the card saying things like ‘Pull string for message IF YOU DARE!’ and ‘She’ll love you to death!’ insinuating that the innocent-looking Muslim is a suicide bomber.

The card appears to be based on a real doll meant for actual Muslim girls.

The Aamina Muslim Doll, which speaks phrases in Arabic, is the brainchild of a mother who couldn’t find dolls that resembled her daughter.

‘It all started when my daughter was 2 ½ years old,’ writes founder Farzana Rahman on her company website.

‘I was trying to find toys that would help her to speak her mother tongue, Urdu. Failing to find anything, I embarked upon designing a talking Urdu doll myself.’

The doll, which has a male counterpart in the Yousuf doll, was the first of many products created by Rahman to celebrate Muslim and Arab culture with toys.

Aamina wears a pink hijab and a dress with flowers, just like the girl on the card.

That message has now been made into a joke by greeting card company NobleWorks Inc., a joke a Chicago-area Muslim rights group says plays upon hateful stereotypes.

The card was first released in 2011, but was only recently noticed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in a Chicago novelty store.

‘Islamophobic generalizations and negative stereotypes often hit those who are most visibly perceived as Muslim,’ wrote Ahmed Rehab CAIR’s Chicago Monitor, ‘and women wearing the Hijab are often the group hit the hardest.

All in good faith: Justin Bieber stops concert in Turkey twice to honour Muslim call to prayer

Turkish Airlines bans air hostesses from wearing red lipstick and nail polish in new row over ‘creeping’ Islamic influence


‘Many Muslim women around the world, certainly in the US, choose to wear the Hijab as a free-willed expression of modesty and self-respect. For them, it is a message that men should address their minds and not their bodies.’

I wonder what the outcome if some refused to wear the clothing of a med-evil religion. Yeah and medieval too.

NobleWorks, whose motto is ‘Dare to Laugh’ features an extensive line of politically-themed humor cards on its website.

‘I can only imagine folks and friends,’ writes Kanfi, ‘who receive or read our cards, can help but wonder as to whether laughing is the appropriate thing to do. But as our motto goes: “F**k ‘em if they can’t take a joke!"’

But as is usual these days, the bearded muzzies (and even their men) win another round.

CAIR responded in kind:

‘The notion that a doll, that looks like any other doll that any little girl in the world would play with, can be presented as a terrorist doll simply and only because it is a “Muslim” doll or because it has a “Muslim scarf” on its head is not what defines “funny” for a lot of people, but bigoted, ugly, idiotic, moronic, etc.’

The Muslim group said it has written an official letter to NobleWorks sharing its concern over the card they say exposes little girls ‘to messaging that criminalizes their basic identity for profit.’

The card appears to have been removed from the NobleWorks website.

what happens when control of borders is relinquished to foreign courts.

This is what they have come to here in the UK. And this pair are not the only ones.

This is what happens when control of borders is relinquished to foreign courts.
USA , so far, doesn’t answer to the EU or EU courts.  Of course, Obama is doing his honest best to appease and gain favour with euro left by continuing to rant about Guantanamo.  Our borders in the US aren’t any more secure now than they were a few years ago, although I have read otherwise.  But when all is said and done, we (USA) still are fortunate in not having this ongoing problem.  Question is of course, for how much longer?

Two more foreign rioters foil attempts to deport them because of their ‘right to a family life’ under Human Rights Act

· Immigration Minister says he is ‘disappointed’ by the judgment
· New legislation will aim to halt use of Human Rights Act by foreign criminals to avoid deportation
By Damien Gayle

Two foreign rioters jailed for their part in England’s civil unrest two years ago have foiled attempts to deport them by citing their human right to ‘family life’.
The successful appeals by Ubong-Luke Nkanta, of south-east London, and a second man, who has been granted anonymity, defy the Government’s pledge to deport any foreign national convicted over the 2011 disturbances.

Critics say the decisions sharply contradict official efforts to take exemplary action against those involved in the outbreaks of violence in London and elsewhere that summer.

Government anger over the use of Article Eight of the Human Rights Act, which enshrines the right to a family life, has prompted Home Secretary Theresa May to draft new laws to stop foreign criminals avoiding deportation.

Ministers believe judges will be unable to ignore the new legislation, as they appear to have ignored rules introduced last July that they should only allow the use of Article Eight in ‘exceptional circumstances’.

In the first case, Nigerian-born Ubong-Luke Nkanta, from Thamesmead, was in November 2011 jailed for 18 months for burglary during the riots in London.
The 25-year-old entered a building which was being looted by rioters but did not steal anything because, he told the court, ‘there was nothing left to take’.
The Home Office began deportation proceedings against him as he approached his release from jail last summer, but he appealed against the move by citing his ‘right to a family life’.

He argued his relationship with his two biological children in the UK as well as his current partner’s children meant his human rights would be breached if he was deported.
The lower immigration tribunal agreed and, following an appeal by the Home Office, the decision was upheld by Upper Immigration Tribunal Judge Isabel Murray.

The second case is of a Zimbabwean who can only be named as ‘TS’ after senior immigration judges granted him anonymity - despite the fact criminal courts had allowed him to be named.

He was convicted of violent disorder and jailed for 15 months after joining a group of 30 to 50 youths who rampaged through two Buckinghamshire towns in copy cat riots three days after the initial outbreak of violence in Tottenham.
The gang, which was later described in court as a ‘mindless mob’, launching attacks on vehicles and shops, including a Chinese takeaway whose owners were robbed of their takings.

TS was identified as one of the main culprits who launched an attack on a bus which left its driver ‘frightened for her life.
More than 200 foreign criminals were convicted for their part in the riots in which shops were plundered, businesses set ablaze and hundreds of millions of pounds of damage done.

In the following months, it emerged that non-UK nationals played a central role in the mayhem.
The largest group was Jamaicans, followed by Somali and Polish offenders. Other rioters came from Colombia, Iraq, the Congo, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.

Of course it doesn’t help any when your own govt. agencies are committed to foreign interests and laws as opposed to your own.  Once upon a time it was called treason.  BTW, I am not posting photos here, see the link for that if you need a reminder of what this “disturbance” looked like.

He argued his relationship with his two biological children in the UK as well as his current partner’s children meant his human rights would be breached if he was deported.

The lower immigration tribunal agreed and, following an appeal by the Home Office, the decision was upheld by Upper Immigration Tribunal Judge Isabel Murray.

This is what losing your sovereignty looks like people. You’ll get lots more names that look like, Ubong-Luke Nkanta. ??!!~@!#!??  And mooohamid and maaaachhhmood.

the problem with the west is, is doesn’t have enough home grown problems

Activists said that more than 100 people, including women and children, were killed in the Sunni village of al-Bayda and the nearby coastal town of Baniyas.

Activists say. Activists say. It always the same damn thing. Activists say this or that and we even hear it on the news on radio.  EVERY DAMN DAY!  Activists say.  Oh yeah?

Why is it we hardly ever hear from the other side? Why is that? The last word in truth is whatever, “activists say.” Well I’m sick of what they say and try and pay as little attention as possible. It’s not always easy. I mean heck, I can’t be reaching for and switching the volume on and off all the time.

I think it is true that there are al Qaeda elements fighting Assad. So if he is overthrown, will there be another civil war between the folks who are and are not terrorists?

Does the west not have enough home grown problems, economy, jobs, crime etc.? Aren’t there enough civilian casualties in our own back yard to be concerned with? Guess not because reports are that Obama might up the stakes and support Syrian rebels with arms, and Britain’s Foreign Secretary, Wm. Hague, has been calling for direct intervention against Assad for some time now. 

Can’t we just buy the oil and otherwise mind our own darn business?

from eye sore to eye candy for $100,000 and counting

I make no judgment and offer no opinion for myself.
I’m interested in what you think of this.
She obviously had the money to achieve her desire.

I think you might agree I have the correct categories listed.

Take a look at this.


Meet the Japanese model who has spent over $100,000 on plastic surgery to look like a french doll… and is planning even more extreme procedures

Vanilla Chamu has undergone more than 30 procedures in a bid to look like a ‘living French doll’
Her next procedure promises to be her most extreme yet as she plans to undergo height lengthening surgery

By David Mccormack

A Japanese woman has undergone a startling physical transformation that has so far involved more than 30 cosmetic procedures at a cost of 10 million yen or $102,000.

The lady, a model known as Vanilla Chamu, has said she intends to keep having surgeries until she has achieved her lifelong goal – to look like a French doll.

Photos of Vanilla prior to her first procedures reveal a rather mousy Japanese teenager whose facial features are virtually unrecognizable from the bizarre and undoubtedly more ‘western-looking’ appearance that she now possesses.

image

Vanilla underwent her first plastic surgery when she was 19 years old and keeps her current age a well-guarded secret.

She has become something of a cause célèbre in her native land, making countless television appearances and launching a pop career.

Her unusual appearance undoubtedly makes her guaranteed to stand out in any crowd, but she does possess a very unusual view of what a french doll should look like.

LOTS MORE TO SEE HERE

Checkmate!

This from the The Tenth Amendment Center

Who are the Militia?

Many Americans might be surprised to learn that they are, were, or will be a member of the militia under both state and federal law. For purposes of federal law, the composition and classes of the militia are defined in Title 10 of the United States Code, Section 311:

(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.

(b) The classes of the militia are-

(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and

(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

Since the militia could be called upon to provide their own weapons, it behooves you to own firearms, and learn to use them. Sgt. York from WWI is the example.

Rats, The Other Other White Meat

Somebody Smells A Rat In China

I think the Chinese would have been more than happy to have the horse meat scandal Europe recently had. Their latest faux-food fracas is rat meat being sold as lamb. And fox. Golly, this ever-changing modern world! Everyone knows the fake meat from China is supposed to be cat!



Rat Meat Sold as Lamb Highlights Food Fears in China

Even for China’s scandal-numbed diners, news that the lamb simmering in the pot may actually be rat took the country’s endless outrages about food hazards into a new realm of disgust. In an announcement intended to show that the government is serious about improving food safety, the Ministry of Public Security said over the Internet on Thursday that the police had caught traders in eastern China who bought rat, fox and mink flesh and sold it as mutton. But that and other cases of meat smuggling, faking and adulteration that were also featured in Chinese newspapers and Web sites on Friday were unlikely to instill confidence in consumers already queasy over many reports about meat, fruit and vegetables laden with disease, toxins, banned dyes and preservatives.

Sixty-three people were arrested and are accused of “buying fox, mink and rat and other meat products that had not undergone inspection,” which they doused in gelatin, red pigment, and nitrates, and sold as mutton in Shanghai and adjacent Jiangsu Province for about $1.6 million, according to the ministry’s statement. The account did not explain how exactly the traders acquired the rats and other creatures.

“How many rats does it take to put together a sheep?” said one typically baffled and angry user of Sina Weibo, China’s Twitter-like microblog service that often acts as a forum for public venting. “Is it cheaper to raise rats than sheep? Or does it just not feel right unless you’re making fakes?”

Raise them? Who said anything about raising them? Just go out to the cesspits, garbage dumps, mortuaries, and set cages.

The arrests were part of a nationwide operation since late January to “attack food safety crimes and defend the safety of the dining table,” the ministry said. The police arrested 904 people suspected of selling fake, diseased, toxic or adulterated meat, and broke up 1,721 illicit factories, workshops and shops. Yet the ministry acknowledged that diners still had reason to worry.

In food safety campaigns in past years “some serious problems have been dealt with swiftly and vigorously, but for a variety of reasons, food safety crimes remain serious, and are displaying new circumstances and features,” an unnamed senior official said in the statement.

“For example, there is selling of meat injected with water and meat from animals dead from disease, as well as passing off relatively cheap types of meat as relatively expensive beef and mutton.”

I wonder if any of those tens of thousands of dead bloated pigs going down the rivers a few weeks ago ever made it to the sea? And all those ducks and chickens “destroyed” because of avian flu. Makes me wonder if they weren’t, ahem, “recycled” in one way or another. Because ... crivens, one thousand seven hundred and twenty one illicit meat processing FACTORIES. I’d be amazed if they had that many proper meat processing centers.

China. Land of the Big Lie.

Despite an ongoing crackdown, “food safety crimes are still prominent, and new situations are emerging with new characteristics,” the ministry’s statement said. Police seized more than 20,000 tons of fake or mislabeled meat products during the nationwide sweep, the ministry said.

Food safety is a major issue in China, where public anxiety over cases of fake or toxic food can spread quickly. In April, many consumers lost their appetite for poultry as an outbreak of the H7N9 bird flu virus spread in China, Reuters reported. And in March, more than 16,000 rotting pig carcasses were found floating in one of Shanghai’s main sources of water.

More than a billion and a quarter hungry mouths to feed in China. Push comes to shove, they’ll eat anything. Or anyone. So may as well just fess up, and sell the stuff as what it is. It’s not like they haven’t been eating rat all along anyway.

PS - a typical rat weighs about a pound. Take away bones, hide, guts, and blood, and you’ve got about half a pound of meat per adult rat. 20,000 tons is 40,000,000 pounds, equivalent to EIGHTY MILLION RATS. So actually they need 10 times more, every day, just to feed themselves.



How many rats must a man chow down
Before you call him Chinese?
How many times the ingredients faked
Before the world’s fed up and leaves?
Yes, how many imports must be made with poison
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer my friend, is brought here from Shanghai
The answer is brought here from Shanghai.

H/T Doc Jeff

Thanks Doc. Checking my inbox. Can’t believe this.

I wish I could think of clever things to say. Something pithy perhaps.  But really, this speaks for itself.

While it did not surprise me, what did stop me in my tracks was the guy taking a course in Beatles History. That’s a college course? For credit?

America is doomed too it seems.

no good deed goes unpunished … the state of things today …

There’s a story been doing the rounds the last couple of days, and if I had been up to it I should have shared this bit of insanity with you yesterday.  This is an example of what this once great country has come to.  What makes things worse yet, there are young Brits bleeding and dying and not just on the streets of their local communities.  Young fellows in far away places leaving a little bit of England etc.  It bothers me a lot, and does so even more when I read this sort of thing, which convinces me that this place is finished and doomed, because there are far too many people like one of those in the story I should have posted.  And too many like the city council involved.
For all that I post about the crumbling justice system and teen killers, it is a good feeling to hear about one young kid who without thought to reimbursement or even thanks, does something good quietly on his own. At age 15 he actually was able to get a city to commit thousands for the restoration of a neglected war memorial.  A memorial he had been tending in his spare time, from the age of 7.  A memorial he spent spare pennies on buying stuff for it to make it presentable.
Jeesh.  You have to wonder about some people.  And trust me, you won’t figure them out.  They all fit one kind of mold.
I’ll let Richard Littlejohn pick up this story, he tells it better.  And all of the rest of it is, as usual, at the link below. Don’t miss it.

SOME DEEDS
Richard Littlejohn
Daily Mail

Some stories make my blood boil. You won’t always find them on the front pages or leading the television news bulletins. But they tell you more about the condition of modern Britain than most of what passes for ‘news’ these days.

Take the case of 19-year-old Kurtis Green, from Dersingham in Norfolk. For the past 12 years he has been lovingly tending the war memorial opposite his parents’ fish and chip shop.

image

It began when he was just seven. Kurtis saved up his pocket money to buy gardening tools and started clearing litter and planting bulbs.
Over the years he has devoted hundreds of hours of unpaid time to his task. When he was 15, he mounted a successful campaign to persuade councillors to spend £20,000 restoring the memorial with new flowerbeds, railings, seating and block paving.

Kurtis won a Norfolk Young People’s Role Model of the Year award and was congratulated by the Queen.

Thanks to his efforts, the local branch of the British Legion collected a prize for Norfolk’s most improved war memorial.

But Kurtis wasn’t content to rest on his laurels. Deciding the plants and flowers could do with more irrigation, he tapped into a nearby water supply, which had been installed as part of the restoration programme.

Together with a fellow villager, 65-year-old John Houston, he went about the work in a professional manner. At the insistence of the council, he took out public liability insurance and coned off the area where the trench was being dug.

Once the work was complete, the trench was filled in and new grass seed planted. ‘It actually looked better than when we started,’ said Kurtis proudly.
But this is where it all began to unravel. No good deed, as they say, ever goes unpunished.

His grandfather served in World War II and Kurtis says he started his clean-up campaign because it ‘was not in a fit state’ to honour those who had fought for their country.

While Kurtis and John were carrying out the work, along came a councillor and started taking photographs on his mobile phone. ‘The next thing we knew we were reported to the police.’

Not so fast folks. There is more right here Oh boy, is there more.

Because the insanity continues with ice cream vans being banned to save on carbon emissions. It’s all at the link. And none of it is funny.

Have To Have Balance And Diversity

FBI Adds Bill Ayers’ Pal Joanne Chesimard To Most Wanted Terrorist List



Yeah, because last week somebody pointed out that the list was solid muslims. So they drag up an old hippie terrorist bomber from the 70s and add her in. They’ve known for 30 years exactly where she is too.

image

Diversity in action. Yeah baby.

Joanne Chesimard was part of the Black Liberation Army. She gunned down a NJ State Trooper in cold blood in 1973. In 1977 she was convicted and sent to prison at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility, then called Clinton Farms. That’s right across the highway from where I live. (I didn’t live here then). In 1979 the Weather Underground, a terrorist group run by Barack Obama’s friend, mentor, and godfather of his children, Bill Ayers, violently broke Chesimard out of that jail. She made her way to Cuba. Two years later Ayers and the Weather Underground pulled off the Brinks Robbery at Nanuet Mall in Nanuet NY (next door to where I then lived), and killed several people including two police officers in the robbery and the ensuing chase and shootout. Ayers escaped prosecution due to a procedural error. In his own words, he is “guilty as hell, free as a bird”. Ayers is currently a college professor, living with his wife Bernadine Dohrn, who was also part of the Weather Underground. Well, the Weatherman, which was a radical group that had grown from the earlier Marxist/Anarchist group Students For A Democratic Society (SDS). After having left the Weatherman, Dohrn worked in the law firm of Sidley Austin with Michelle Obama. What a cute couple of couples they must have made “around the neighborhood” in Chicago, or in Ayers’ living room, where he just admitted again the other day that, yes, this is where Barack Hussein Obama held his political coming out party. At the home of admitted terrorists. Nice, huh? But you knew that part since 2007. But you may have forgotten that those terrorists are murderers, as are all the other terrorists they’ve hung with over the years. Bombers. Killers. Here’s a reminder.



Today the FBI added Chesimard to their Most Wanted List. What, she wasn’t on it before, back in the day??

On the 40th anniversary of the murder of State Trooper Werner Foester, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced today, May 2, a $2 million reward for the capture and return from Cuba of 1960s revolutionary Joanne Chesimard.

Chesimard, who goes by the name Assata Shakur, was a member of the Black Panthers and Black Liberation Army revolutionary movement of the 1960s and 70s. She killed Foerster during a shootout on the New Jersey Turnpike in East Brunswick just after midnight on May 2, 1973. She was convicted of the murder in 1977 and sentenced to life plus 30 years for the crime.

In February 1979, Chesimard was serving the sentence at Clinton Farms (now Edna Mahan Correctional Institution), in Union Township when three armed men posing as visitors held up a corrections officer in the supposedly top-security South Hall, commandeered a prison van at gunpoint and escaped in cars waiting along Route 78.

Friend of Bill Ayers Added to FBI’s Most Wanted List

Nobody in the media will make the connection for you today, so we’ll helpfully oblige. It’s taken decades, but the FBI has finally gotten around to placing this cop-killing scumbag on the Most Wanted List.

Joanne Chesimard, now living in Cuba as a fugitive after murdering a New Jersey state trooper, will be placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist list — with the reward for her capture doubled — on Thursday, exactly 40 years after the death of Trooper Werner Foerster.

Some of New Jersey’s top lawmen will gather at the FBI’s headquarters in Newark to announce that Chesimard is being added to the FBI terrorist list, a law enforcement official said.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Aaron T. Ford, the new head of the FBI’s Newark Division, also is expected to announce that the reward for Chesimard’s capture is being doubled to $2 million, the official said.

Chesimard, a black militant who has been living under the name of Assata Shakur in Cuba for more than 25 years, was convicted in 1977 of killing Foerster during a gun battle on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973. Three gunmen posing as visitors broke her out of the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women in Clinton in 1979. Chesimard eluded capture and resurfaced in the mid-1980s in Cuba, where she has since lived under the protection of the Castro regime.

Nice. And Obama wants to make nice-nice with Castro and his gang down Cuba way. Gee, I’m so thrilled.

Forget Selective, Now We’ve Got Anti-Enforcement

Colorado Voting Bill Would Guarantee Crooked Elections Forever



Colorado’s Democratic-controlled state legislature is ramming through an election bill that critics say will open the door to voter fraud and intimidation.

The “Voter Access and Modernized Elections Act” is expected to pass the legislature this week. Democrats control both chambers of the legislature, as well as the governor’s mansion, meaning the bill could pass without a single Republican vote.

The bill is under consideration amid accusations that Republicans in other states have tried to suppress the vote by passing laws that require some form of identification in order to vote.

The Colorado law would make mail-in ballots mandatory while eliminating local polling places and allowing people to vote on the same day they register.

Critics of the bill say that these changes could lead to fraud and voter intimidation.

“I want our elections to be easy to vote and tough to cheat, and this ruins that balance,” said Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, a Republican who has been an outspoken opponent of the bill.

Gessler said the two main provisions of the bill are “a recipe for fraud” and have both been proven problematic. Wisconsin and Minnesota both have same day registration, and they have both seen large problems with fraud, Gessler said.

Once the voting process has been utterly corrupted, the ruling party will always win. No matter what. And gee whiz, too effin’ bad, voting is more than a right it’s a civic duty. So you’ve got to do a bit of work. You’ve actually got to register in advance and be properly and fully vetted. Then you’ve actually got to show up, prove you’re a legitimate voter, and cast your ballot. With our growing population, maybe Election Day is too constraining. Fine. Make it Vote Counting Day and open the polls for an entire month before that. And absentee ballots only to those truly disabled or hospitalized. If you’re out of the country at the time, get to the US Embassy there and cast your vote, but with the same proof of legitimacy. And the foreign polls close a week before Vote Counting Day. And the overseas military vote gets sent in two weeks before it as well. Hardship? Hardly. But when you make it too easy to vote, you open the door to an avalanche of fraud. And that’s no accident, if it’s the Dems who are behind a bill like this. And they are. Always. And against Voter ID. Always. That’s because they’re corrupt. Always.

The bill also strips voters of “the protection of a private voting booth,” Gessler said, which opens up voters to the possibility of intimidation.

Some Colorado voters have already been subject to voter intimidation using mail-in ballots, said Marilyn Marks, who heads the voter watchdog group Citizen Center and has lobbied against the pending bill.

Citizen Center launched a lawsuit alleging a March recall election in Center, Colo., which partially used mail-in ballots, was rife with corruption and voter intimidation. The suit said individuals pressured voters in low income and Hispanic areas to vote for certain individuals by giving them pre-filled ballots dropping off their ballots at the polling place.

These individuals allegedly used children’s participation in the federal education program Head Start as leverage over parents, Marks said. One individual who initially said he had been intimidated will not testify now out of fear of reprisal, she said.

Marks said the mail-in ballots strongly supported the recall while those who voted in a traditional polling location did not.

Gee, that’s a pretty smelly coincidence, ain’t it?

More Selective Enforcement

That Judge Needs To Make Another Ruling

The judge who gave DHS’s Crappy Nappy a spanking the other day when she said she could selectively enforce the laws needs to make a bigger, more blanket ruling. Or get his bosses in the Supremes to issue a similar edict, ASAP.
Aww heck, just put me in charge for an hour. I’d demand that the voter rolls be purged in every county of the nation, with proof supplied every 60 days hereafter, or else a complete cut off of all federal funding.

ACRU Sues DOJ: Enforce The Law, Clean Up The Voter Rolls In Mississippi



The American Civil Rights Union wants local election officials to clean up voter rolls in Mississippi. Last Friday, the group filed suit against two counties that have more registered voters than the Census says they have voting-eligible citizens.

The ACRU is stepping into the breach left by the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Justice Department. Under Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez (now nominated to head the U.S. Department of Labor), the division has refused to enforce Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act, also known as the Motor Voter law. Section 8 requires states to remove ineligible voters from their registration lists.

Filing the ACRU lawsuits against Jefferson Davis County and Walthall County were three former Justice Department lawyers: Christopher Coates, Christian Adams (the legal editor of PJ Media), and Henry Ross. As the complaints outline, the U.S. Census says Jefferson Davis County has only 9,536 residents of voting age. Yet the county has 10,078 registered voters, giving it a registration rate of 105 percent. (The national average hovers at about 70 percent.)

Walthall County rolls are even more astonishing. The Census counts only 11,368 voting-age residents there, but the county boasts 14,108 registered voters — a 124 percent registration rate.

County officials don’t seem too concerned about it, though. They refused to respond to the ACRU’s request for information on what Walthall County was doing to comply with the Motor Voter requirements.  Section 8 requires states and local election officials to make “a reasonable effort to remove the names of ineligible voters” when they die or move away.

That may seem to be a commonsense requirement, but the radical wing of the civil rights community loathes the provision.

The Obama administration has not filed a single case to enforce Section 8, even though numerous counties in many states have the same disparities between voter rolls and eligible voters as these two Mississippi counties. Their voter registration lists are out-of-date because local officials are not deleting names of those who have died, moved away, or otherwise become ineligible to vote.

acRu, not acLu. Not the same folks, even if you’re Japanese.

Honest government starts at the very bottom, at the very beginning: the election process. If that continues to be rigged, citizens have no reason to believe any other aspect of the government is legitimate or honest. And this government isn’t doing a darn thing to enforce those laws. Hmmm. Thugopoly much?

Must Blame Bush. Or Global Warming.

Just Another Night In Utopia: 20 Shot In Chicago



At least three people were killed and 17 wounded in shootings across Chicago overnight as the city saw its warmest weather in seven months.

In one of the fatal shootings, three men were shot in a parking lot across the street from the headquarters of the UIC Police Department, police said. The shooting happened around 10:40 p.m. in the 1000 block of West Maxwell Street, Police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

All three men were taken to Stroger Hospital of Cook County. The conditions of two of them, 19 and 21, were stabilized at the hospital, Greer said. The third man, 19-year-old Tytrell Jackson, of the 1300 block of West Hastings Avenue, was pronounced dead at 11:13 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

About 12:10 a.m., a 27-year-old man was shot in the chest in the 6800 block of South Cornell Avenue, in the South Shore neighborhood, police said.

The man was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:53 a.m. The medical examiner’s office identified him as Darrin Rodgers, of the 6800 block of South Cornell.

About 1:20 a.m., gunfire claimed another life, this time in the Lawndale neighborhood.

Police responding to the scene found a 23-year-old man lying in an alley near the 1900 block of South Drake Avenue, bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds, authorities said.


Gosh, maybe if Chicago had some gun control this kind of mindless violence wouldn’t happen all the time. Oh wait, they do! Chicago has some of the toughest gun laws in the country; the odds are overwhelming that every single one of these shootings was done with an illegal firearm, except maybe the shotgun one. Maybe.

Chicago, where even the high school sports games get cancelled out of fear of gang drive-bys. Chicago, where having “only” 94 murders since January, instead of the usual 100 or more (for 50 years!!) is seen as something to brag about.

The spike of violence occurred as temperatures climbed into the 80s and the city basked in the warmest weather yet this year.

It also comes after Chicago police reported that the number of murders in April (24) was the lowest in about 50 years, WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports. During the first four months of the year, Chicago reported a total of 94 murders. It’s the first time since 1963 that the city had fewer than 100 murders between January and April.

“We are looking at progress,” Police Supt. Garry McCarthy told the CBS 2 morning news, but he acknowledged that “we are going to have good days and bad days,” like Tuesday night.

Such progress.

  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

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.
