Time To Move. Right NOW.

San Fran Cops Honor 10 Year Old Boy

Fairfield police last week recognized a 10-year-old boy and his father for courageous actions they took in September, police said.

Nathaniel Biggs was visiting the Cordelia branch of the Solano County Library on Sept. 15 when he saw a friend put a semi-automatic handgun into a backpack. When Nathaniel’s father Jason picked him up at the library, Nathaniel told his father about what he had seen, and Jason called Fairfield police.

Officers responded and located and detained Nathaniel’s friend without incident. Officers also located the handgun and a fixed blade knife and a Shuriken in the backpack of Nathaniel’s friend.

Police said because of the information provided by Jason and Nathaniel, police were able to recover an illegally possessed and stolen firearm.

On the one hand .... gosh, isn’t this great, kid helps stop the violence, because #kidslivesmatter. And so forth.

On the other hand ... little nanny state do gooder sells out his friend. How old do you think a 10 year old boy’s friends are anyway? 10? Maybe 12? Certainly not 24. Not with a backpack doing homework at the library. The friend was 11. With a gun, and a big knife, and a throwing star. Do you think that kid is still in jail? Hell no. And have you heard the expression “stitches for snitches”? Wasn’t it great of the police to publicly honor the kid and for the press to run the story with his name and photo? Just in case friend 11 didn’t figure out who outed him?
{ psssst, hey dad - what time is it? Time to move son, right the fug now! }

Says the police: Without their involvement, the firearm would not have been recovered and the child would have continued playing with it, possibly with disastrous results. This is a perfect example of what can be accomplished when alert citizens speak up and partner with the police department. Together we can make Fairfield a safer community!

Sorry to rain on your parade, but if the kid also had a big knife and a ninja star, there wasn’t any playing going on. Kid had a 3 layer plan to either fend off or deliver death. There’s a serious, serious problem here of some kind. Gangs, criminals, bullying, abuse, something.

NIMBY, Literally

Hey, how do you make a dead jihadi float? Two scoops of ice cream, a dead jihadi, a tall glass, some root beer ... [rimshot]

Not In My Backyard. Or In My Front Yard. Or Cemetery. Or Country.

Dead ISIS bodies piling up like cord wood, nobody wants them buried in Iraqi soil. Gee, that sucks, huh?

Another opportunity for a social media campaign here! “Fighters of ISIS, look how your leaders have abandoned your brothers in arms! Look how they who claim to be followers of Allah have forsaken the burial rights of the mujadeen, leaving the martyrs to be eaten by dogs and jooooos, and to rot in the sun!”

More than 100 bodies of dead foreign ISIS fighters pile up in Iraqi hospitals as home countries and local cemeteries refuse to take them

The unwanted bodies of dozens of dead foreign ISIS fighters have been left to pile up in Iraqi hospitals.

More than 100 corpses of Islamist combatants from 13 different countries are dispersed among the country’s healthcare units.

That’s according to an unnamed, high-ranking official in the country’s Interior Ministry, who told Arabic-language newspaper Akhbar Al Iraq that the dead jihadist’s home countries refuse to accept them while local cemeteries won’t take them either.

The government is still trying to figure out what to do with the bodies, which are reportedly from European, Asian and Arab nations.

According to the same official their countries of origin have told Iraq to ‘Burn them or drown them, we don’t want them.

‘We took away their citizenship.’

The official added: ‘These nations wanted to send a message first to Iraq; a message of support against terrorism and radicalism, and second to tell the people who want to fight with ISIS that they mean nothing to their countries and people.’

According to the London-based Arabic newspaper Al Quds Alarabi, Iraqi civilians and politicians are refusing to allow the foreign terrorists’ bodies to be buried in cemeteries.

Most of the fallen fighters were killed fighting Kurdish Peshmerga forces or were hit by coalition air strikes.

Vlad Tepes had the answer to this predicament. Vlad the Impaler, aka Dracula. Find a hillside somewhere at the front lines. Get out your video camera and start recording for YouTube.

“99 dead ISIS fighters tonight
99 fighters that’s right
You bring one round
Spike him into the ground
98 dead ISIS fighters tonight”

And you leave their half naked defiled corpses for the flies.  And then you publish the video, while rigging a press release while giving reporters special “insider access”.  “Look how compassionate we’re being; we let them get fully dead before impaling them like this. Fully dead. For now.” And of course you booby trap some of the bodies and areas with grenades and land mines.

I know I keep coming back to it, but Social Media is the alternate battlefield in this war. You want to defeat terrorism, you have to terrorize the terrorists. Or kill them all. Which is pretty hard when so many want to join their ranks. So you’ve got to let the whole world know what happens, and you’ve got to make it worse that what they’ve already done to your people. Far worse. And that could be the real challenge.

Why Wait? Get The Rope

Terrorizing the terrorists

Jordan to ISIS: Kill our pilot and we will hang all our ISIS prisoners

Jordan has threatened to fast-track the execution of a would-be suicide bomber the Islamic State is trying to free if the terror group kills its captured pilot, it was reported today.

The government has apparently warned that Sajida al-Rishawi and other jailed ISIS commanders would be ‘quickly judged and sentenced’ in revenge for Muath al-Kaseasbeh’s death.

It comes after a deadline for a possible prisoner swap allegedly set by ISIS passed yesterday with no clue over the fate of al-Kaseasbeh or fellow Japanese hostage Kenji Goto.

Intelligence sources said ISIS’s refusal to prove that al-Kaseasbeh was alive meant any deal with the militants was doomed.

Now Jordan has reportedly stepped up its rhetoric by warning of its intent to retaliate if the negotiations end in bloodshed.

Elijah Magnier, chief international correspondent for Kuwait’s Al Rai newspaper, told MailOnline: ‘I have reliable contact in the Jordanian government who says a message has been passed to ISIS.

‘It warns that if they kill the pilot they will implement the death sentences for Sajida and other ISIS prisoners as soon as possible.

Jordan had agreed to an ISIS demand to free al-Rishawi who failed to fulfil her Al Qaeda mission as a suicide bomber.

In return, ISIS said it would not execute the 26-year-old pilot, who was seized in December after crashing near its HQ in the Syrian city of Raqqa.

In its latest audio recording, ISIS threatened to kill al-Kaseasbeh if a deadline was not kept for the release of al-Rishawi by dusk Iraq time yesterday - around 5.30pm (2.30pm GMT).

But it appeared to make no promises to release him, another condition the Jordanian government is demanding.

I think this is the right approach. At first glance I thought Jordan had plenty of ISIS prisoners, so I was going to suggest they just start hanging one every day until they get their guy back. But they might not have so many captives after all. In that case, just chop off a small bit. A foot, a calf, a leg. On YouTube, on social media. With a full spectrum disinformation campaign in Arabic. “This is your fault ISIS! Fighters of the Islamic State, this is how little ISIS cares about you! This prisoner is no martyr, no hero! He goes to meet Allah unclean and blaspheming!” and so forth. And then ... chop. Do it. And if it works, then Jordan has a new sideline industry, because they can do this kind of sick stuff and get away with it, muslim vs. muslim, while the rest of the West can’t. But we can supply all the pork by-products necessary, and I’m sure Israel could ship over a few cases of Official Jooo Cooties ASAP.

And if it doesn’t work? Well, that’s a few less terrorists on hand, right? And when the next captured ISIS fighter goes up the gallows, and just happens to be a UK citizen, or from France, or from Detroit ... and gets to dance the hemp fandango with double bacon ... maybe recruitment from those areas might fall off a bit?

Groundhog Day 2015

No Shadows Here



image




With the end of “snow storm Linus” passing through here, it’s about as overcast a day as can be. No chance of “Clintsutawney Clete” (wth, if NYC gets their own mud weasel, why shouldn’t we?) seeing a shadow of any kind. Especially since we used a real groundhog, completely comatose in deep hibernation as any actual fat covered tomato killer is at this time of the year.

So Spring should be here early, according to the rules of rodential prescience.

On the other hand, showing the little bastard Wardmama’s drowning tub ahead of time could have influenced him just a bit. “Nice burrow you’ve got here. Sure would be a shame if anything happened to it.” This is Jersey after all, capice?

Punxsutawney Phil ‘forecasts’ 6 more weeks of winter

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. – The handlers of Pennsylvania’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, said Monday the furry rodent has forecast six more weeks of winter.

Members of the top hat-wearing Inner Circle announced the “prediction” Monday morning.

A German legend has it that if a furry rodent sees his shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last another six weeks. If not, spring comes early.

The forecast was delivered after a steady pre-dawn rain turned to snow as temperatures dropped from the high 30s to around freezing. They were forecast to keep dropping over much of the state, prompting the state Department of Transportation to lower the speed limit to 45 mph for many interstate highways which were already wet and expected to freeze or be covered with snow as the day wore on.
...
Despite the German legend, Phil’s handlers don’t wait to see if he sees his shadow—as he likely would not have on such an overcast day. Instead, the Inner Circle decide on the forecast ahead of time and announce it on Gobbler’s Knob, a tiny hill in the town for which the groundhog is named, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

What? That’s cheating! It’s a rigged game! And the audacity to come right out and tell us ... wow. Government corruption runs from the very top all the way to the very bottom, and you can’t get much lower than a team of jobsworths who work one morning a year lying about the visual acuity of an overinflated squirrel. Son of a gun.

i don’t think i’d be very happy in school in these times. wasn’t thrilled in my time either tho

One of my life complaints, expressed bitterly at times, is the way our language has not so much changed, as how often it’s been raped.  Can I use that term?
Once upon a time, the word colored, or coloured if spelled Brit fashion, was no more a racial slur than the word gay. The ‘G’ word has been stolen and the ‘C’ word has been assassinated.  Colored is a no, no these days.  Not only that, but the word gay which I’ve seen spelled with the ‘g’ in caps, can also mean something trashy, unwanted or dumb.
As in, “oh don’t be so gay”.  Or, “That’s really gay” meaning gross or bad. And that my friends, is an unacceptable use of the word gay these days.

Granted, it’s the very young who have used the ‘g’ word in that manner, and it must be stamped out, according to lefty teachers and OFSTED, (Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills)

I know I am not the Lone Ranger in lamenting the changes in some of our words.  People have complained from one generation to the next for a hundred years about language change.
I’d bet if we could go back to the time of England’s Henry V111, we might not understand the English spoken then. Or even in a much later period. Language evolves. I get that.  Anyway, the court of the king and the aristocrats of that day would most likely have been speaking Norman French, the indigenous Saxons were speaking what would evolve into English, as I understand it.

I hate all these new ‘phobias’ that are so popular too.  I think some things are made up as the politically correct left move along, telling us what is and is not acceptable language and expression. 

Which brings me at long last to the following.


Ofsted guidance at the heart of a major row over ‘inappropriate’ questions fired at primary pupils can be revealed for the first time today.

For years inspectors have been internally briefed that they can quiz pupils aged four to 11 about the word ‘gay’ and same-sex families, it has emerged.

They have been told to ask young children if classmates are ever picked on for not behaving like a ‘typical girl’ or a ‘typical boy’. And since 2013 Ofsted briefings have also urged inspectors to tackle ‘transphobic’ bullying, by asking primary children if they think someone ‘born a girl who would rather be a boy, or born a boy who would like to be a girl’ would feel safe at their school.

Ofsted has repeatedly denied that youngsters have been questioned about ‘inappropriate’ topics since the introduction of new rules last year requiring schools to promote ‘British’ values.

Last week, Sir Michael Wilshaw, the chief inspector of schools, told the Commons’ education select committee that he had conducted a ‘thorough’ investigation into claims children were asked inappropriate questions and found them to be false.

But as early as January 2012, the schools watchdog published a briefing for inspectors, telling them they could quiz primary pupils about aspects of homophobic bullying such as the use of the word ‘gay’ in school.

In September 2013, the watchdog produced a new document, Exploring The School’s Actions to Prevent and Tackle Homophobic and Transphobic Bullying, which endorses asking primary pupils wide-ranging questions about homosexuality and transgender.

It is also alleged a girl of around 12 was asked if she was a virgin.

Good grief!

Now there’s “transphobic?” Transphobic?

Get me outta here.
