Euro MPs to vote on anonymous blog ban
Euro MPs are preparing to vote on proposals for European Union regulation of blogs with the aim of countering a “dangerous” and unregulated blogosphere.

By Bruno Waterfield in Brussels
Last Updated: 6:41PM BST 22 Sep 2008

Marianne Mikko, an Estonian centre-left MEP, is concerned that growing numbers of blogs are being used by individuals with “malicious intentions or hidden agendas”.

“The blogosphere has so far been a haven of good intentions and relatively honest dealing. However, with blogs becoming commonplace, less principled people will want to use them,” she said.

Mrs Mikko has proposed that bloggers should be required to identify themselves and that some popular blogs should come with a declaration of interests.

“We do not need to know the exact identity of bloggers. We need some credentials, a quality mark, a certain disclosure of who is writing and why. We need this to be able to trust and rely on the source,” she said.

Chris Heaton Harris, a British Conservative Euro MP, has rejected any moves to “regulate and restrict independent media sources”.

“Mrs Mikko obviously does not understand that blogs have become the life blood of a vibrant democracy,” he said.

(of course she doesn’t. look where the heck she’s from. she is used to having those above tell her how and what to think. comrade.)

“I hope these proposals are kicked out.”

Thursday’s vote in the European Parliament is not legally binding but is an indicator of growing EU concern over the influence of blogs on the internet.

A recent internal European Commission report, leaked three weeks ago, found that the EU was losing the battle for hearts and minds online.

“Blog activity remains overwhelmingly negative,” it said.

(and the commission will damn well NOT tolerate that by gum and by gosh)

“The most impressive statue depends on its ankles to support it.” Blake6 has the last word.

I had intended my first post of the day would be the story of an 11 year old local girl who is trapped in Russia at the moment. An interesting story I will get to.  But having seen Drew’s post on what’s happened back home in the states, my story can wait awhile.  I’m worked up in fact damn angry as I know some of you are.

Saying I’m appalled by what I have seen in Drew’s recent post with regard to the attack on the buses would be an understatement.  Shocked I guess but I shouldn’t be shocked at all, should I?  That’s how our enemies conduct themselves.  It’s never been any different that I’m aware of.  This however might be the first time lives have been put in danger.  Unless I missed something elsewhere.

I’ve always found it interesting that the left will never have an honest debate or even a civilized conversation on our differences of how America ought to be.  No. Instead they shout you down, insult you and never shut up long enough for an opposing thought to share the air.  Then it occurred to me, the left doesn’t want dialog on how America ought to be.  The left wants America dead.

I had read about these attacks in the newspapers of course, but seeing the videos and the comments of American street terrorists in action really brought things home to me.  How has it come to this pass?  How’d we let it get this far without hitting back and hitting hard.  I believe many of you know me well enough by now to understand exactly what I mean when I say hit back.  Why have we allowed traitors to thrive in our midst and melt the glue that has held us together, with all our warts, through thick and thin for so long?

I have long been aware and I dare say you have as well, of the treason of the left.  I think however speaking only for myself, I somehow, somewhere lost the thread to the extent of that treason.

Islam alone is not the enemy. No. It’s us. It’s the enemy within.  It’s the dupes of the left and the subject I’m always always banging on about. Our fifth filth column.  You don’t have to be told who they are.  You know damn well who.  Dupes might possibly be re-educated as there’s hope for some.  But the leadership of the left has, no must be dealt with.  Quietly, ever so silently, but dealt with and eliminated.  It can’t happen overnight but it is doable. 

There are organization both in America and abroad whose aim is the death of our country. Nothing less.
They can hide behind pretty words and the constitution and legalese but, they want America gone as we have known her. 

In the comments section of Drew’s excellent posting on the subject, cmblake6 put it all into fewer and better words.  Where I’m angry and frustrated and tend to get a bit wordy, Blake6 covers it with absolute cold logic.
So he has the final word on my posting.


“Where we have tried to keep ourselves above the sort of depravity/insanity the other side indulges in, they have been gnawing away at our ankles. And the most impressive statue depends on its ankles to support it. We try to show the light on the hill, they put on a blindfold. We’ve got to tear that blindfold off, even if it means going in to their sphere to get to it.”

Such An Accident

Blogger who criticized the Kremlin shot dead while in police custody



I think the bear is getting a mite bit too ferocious, don’t you?


The owner of a news website that criticised the Kremlin was shot dead yesterday.  Magomed Yevloyev, who opposed the Russian-backed administration of Ingushetia, was detained by police when he landed at the region’s airport, according to colleagues.  A report from the Russian news agency Interfax said Mr Yevloyev, whose website has survived repeated official attempts to close it down, was shot by accident.

A source was quoted as saying that while officers were transferring him ‘to an interior ministry office, an incident occurred in which Mr Yevloyev received a gunshot wound to the temple area’.

Ingushetia is in the Russian North Caucasus and borders Chechnya and North Ossetia.

Accidentally got capped upside the head. Accidentally?? Yeah, and all the people opposed to Idi Amin accidentally died in bus crashes.

The authorities in the volatile province in southern Russia said Magomed Yevloyev was shot in the head accidentally while resisting arrest, the Paris-based non-governmental organization reported. 

According to The Associated Press, the site’s deputy editor Ruslan Khautiyev said that Yevloyev arrived in Ingushetia from Moscow on Sunday on the same plane as regional President Murat Zyazikov. He said the police blocked the jet on the runway after it landed in Ingushetia’s provincial capital, Magas, boarded the plane and took Yevloyev off.

Yevloyev was then whisked away in a car and later dumped at the side of a road with a gunshot wound to the head, he said.

Magomed ... Mohammed? Do we have a case of an islamic activist getting offed here? Or are the New Reds equal opportunity thugs?

An impoverished province with a largely Muslim population, Ingushetiya has suffered for almost a decade from unrest spilling over from neighboring Chechnya.

President Zyazikov’s administration is battling a low-level Islamist insurgency, who launch frequent attacks on Russian servicemen and law enforcement officials.  In response, Russia has launched a counterinsurgency campaign that has been criticized by human rights group for abuses such as arbitrary detentions and extra-judicial executions.

Over the years, Yevloyev had fiercely criticized Zyazikov. Last year, he accused Zyazikov on his Web site of hiring hit-men to kill him, Reporters Without Borders said.

I found a link to a page that tells a very, very different story: the arrest of this guy was carried out using a whole squadron of cops, and a street battle ensued between the cops and Yevloyev’s supporters.

“In a few minutes after the departure of president’s motorcade, another cavalcade of armored cars drove up to the plane – two UAZ cars and four Volgas. Armed to-the-teeth policemen poured out of the cars. Interior Minister Musa Medov was among them. Having seen Magomed Evloev, the policemen went for him to drag into the UAZ,” Khazbiev said.

It was the action-thriller then.

Relatives and friends of Evloev rushed to rescue him, breaking glass doors and pushing away airport guards, to no avail though. The police fired down a few bursts and escaped with Evloev by emergency route.

His body was dumped by the side of the road. Some accident.

Go read the rest.

Looks like Denver needs about 6 new cops

And let’s hope they’ve got a few million bucks just sitting around gathering dust ... because they’re going to get their asses sued off, big time. So long cops, you just lost your jobs.

ABC Reporter Arrested in Denver Taking Pictures of Senators, Big Donors

Police in Denver arrested an ABC News producer today as he and a camera crew were attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting at the Brown Palace Hotel. Police on the scene refused to tell ABC lawyers the charges against the producer, Asa Eslocker, who works with the ABC News investigative unit.

(Click here to watch video of the arrest.)

A cigar-smoking Denver police sergeant, accompanied by a team of five other officers, first put his hands on Eslocker’s neck, then twisted the producer’s arm behind him to put on handcuffs.

A police official later told lawyers for ABC News that Eslocker is being charged with trespass, interference, and failure to follow a lawful order. He also said the arrest followed a signed complaint from the Brown Palace Hotel.

Eslocker was put in handcuffs and loaded in the back of a police van which headed for a nearby police station.

Video taken at the scene shows a man, wearing the uniform of a Boulder County sheriff, ordering Eslocker off the sidewalk in front of the hotel, to the side of the entrance.

The sheriff’s officer is seen telling Eslocker the sidewalk is owned by the hotel. Later, he is seen pushing Eslocker off the sidewalk into oncoming traffic, forcing him to the other side of the street.

It was two hours later when Denver police arrived to place Eslocker under arrest, apparently based on a complaint from the Brown Palace Hotel, a central location for Democratic officials.

During the arrest, one of the officers can be heard saying to Eslocker, “You’re lucky I didn’t knock the f..k out of you.”

Eslocker was released late today after posting $500 bond.

A producer for ABC News was arrested today as he and a camera crew set up on the sidewalk outside the Brown Palace Hotel.

Asa Eslocker was arrested for trespass, interference and failure to obey an lawful order.

He was being processed from the Denver City Jail and is expected to be released on $300 bail, said his attorney Tom Kelley.

Eslocker is investigating the role of corporate lobbyists and wealthy donors at the convention for a series of Money Trail reports on ABC World News.

“The Brown’s security guy got all upset and was telling them he owns the sidewalk around the Brown Palace,” Kelley said.

“There’s a vast difference between his story and the story cops are telling,” Kelley said. “He was set up on a public sidewalk. He was doing an investigative piece and was told he could not be on the public sidewalk in front of the Brown Palace Hotel. We don’t think that should have happened.”




Not exactly “recreate ‘68” but you knew there would be some heavy handed goonery going on in Denver. I gather a Code Pink person got knocked down somewhere too, but I saw the video and she was begging for it. This is a different situation altogether.

I usually don’t have the smallest amount of respect for news people. But the thing is, they have the right to do what they do. That whole bothersome 1st Amendment stuff. So when a news crew is out on a public sidewalk taking pictures of things that are going on in public, you leave them alone. You don’t go all bully-boy on them. Especially if you’re a cop moonlighting as a security guard for a hotel while wearing your cop uniform. And especially not if the newsies catch the whole thing on video. But I have even less respect for Idiot Cops. And you know they’re out there. By the hundreds of thousands. Well, 5 or 6 less by Monday is my guess. And that’s the least that should be done. With the post-911 militarism of many police forces, the power trip thing has gotten out of hand for too many of them. This was another example, albeit a small one.
