justice denied as pair of ground apes avoid death penalty after killing/rape spree

If ever there were two filthy no account rotten niggers who earned the ‘N’ word, these two black bastards surely fit the bill.

I can’t understand what’s happened to common sense in the judiciary in America, or at least in this one state.

Where’s the Klan when ya need them?  If ever lynching were justified, this’d be it. And not cos they are black. No. But because they are Niggers!

Wish the judges making this outrageous decision falls victim to a crime as bad. I am way beyond upset having read this article, which I was not looking for and wish I had not seen.  And as for their lawyer .... not enough bad can be said about the filthy slime. Sometimes a line should be drawn and the nature of a crime should rule.  This is not a case of who said what or a case of identification problems. It’s so damn clear cut there should be no room for arguments. In fact, there shouldn’t even be a trial.  The perps should hang and their lawyer hung right alongside.

A decision like this could only have come about through years of left wing thinking and instruction and education.  No doubt the bed wetting bleeding heart hand wringers are pleased they missed the DP.  These two evil ape like creatures deserve to die very slowly.  Fat chance of that however.

Here’s what one person commenting at the source for the story had to say.

I took a death penalty seminar in law school and was quite annoyed at the anti-death penalty slant (more like 90-degree cliff) on the part of the professors, who were members of the liberal brigade referred to in these comments. They never succeeded in convincing me that the death penalty should be abolished, even with all their pronouncements about it being about “revenge"-- wrong, it’s about justice. Big difference. Anyway, they’d show us pictures of death row inmates crying on execution day. Go on and on about the cruelty of the injection drugs taking a bit too long. And very, VERY rarely would they mention the victims or what happened to them. Of course, when they did allow it to slip out, it would be something absolutely, positively horrific. The only thing I took away from that class was a disturbing knowledge of the nearly endless sequence of appeals these monsters get.

Brothers who forced five friends to have sex with each other before shooting them in the head and burying them in shallow snow escape death penalty on ‘trial technicality’

Jonathan and Reginald Carr sentenced to death in 2002 for the ‘Wichita Massacre’
Kidnapped three men and two women in home invasion that included rape and sexual humiliation in 2000
All five were shot in the head but one survived
Death sentences now overturned because the men should have been tried separately, court said
Both will now be re-sentenced

By Associated Press Reporter

The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday overturned the death sentences of two brothers convicted of killing four friends who were robbed and forced to engage in sex acts before being shot to death and left in a snow-covered Wichita field.

The court also struck down three of the four capital murder convictions each against Jonathan and Reginald Carr, citing procedural problems at the brothers’ joint trial for its decisions. It upheld one capital murder conviction for each of them.

Prosecutors said the brothers broke into a Wichita home in December 2000 and forced the five people there to have sex with each other and later to withdraw money from ATMs. Two women were raped repeatedly before all five were taken to a soccer field and shot while they were kneeling. Four of them — 29-year-old Aaron Sander, 27-year-old Brad Heyka, 26-year-old Jason Befort and 25-year-old Heather Muller — died.

One of the women survived a gunshot wound to the head and she ran naked through the snow to seek help. She became a key witness at the brothers’ trial on the capital murder convictions.

The killings ended a series of crimes that authorities alleged the Carr brothers committed over nine days in December 2000.

The Kansas Supreme Court ruled 6-1 in overturning the Carr brothers’ death sentences because the presiding judge did not hold separate sentencing proceedings for each man.

Heyka’s father, Larry Heyka, also expressed disappointment and said he was struggling to make sense of the rulings, which totaled nearly 480 pages.

‘Hopefully going forward, we will all understand what these rulings really mean,’ said Heyka, who is from Council Grove.

Attorneys for the brothers did not return telephone messages seeking comment.

Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett said he’s not sure whether his office will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, but he promised to continue pursuing death sentences.

Jonathan Carr, now 34, and Reginald Carr, 36, were in their early 20s when the crimes occurred.

Together, they were convicted of 93 counts, including rape, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery.

The state Supreme Court upheld a total of 57 convictions against them.

Most of the overturned convictions involved the allegations of forcing their victims to engage in sex acts.

Five other convicted killers remain on death row in Kansas. The state Supreme Court last week overturned the death sentence of Sidney Gleason in the killings of a Great Bend couple in 2004.

Kansas last executed someone in 1965, by hanging. The current capital punishment law was enacted in 1994, but the state’s highest court has yet to approve any death sentences.

my dark thoughts for the day and a must see video

Don’t know what you’ll make of this.  I don’t find him hard to believe, although judging by some of the response, there are those many who are quite happy to keep denying the evidence.

Tell you the truth .... I’ve come to the point where I am not sure it matters much.  I can not see things getting better unless there’s a very violent, bloody revolution in the USA.  And I do not see that happening.  Even if did, both sides would be losers like two countries nuking each other.
I’m just too damn old to see a bright future because for all my years I’ve been hearing the same bs from our so called leaders. Left/right it makes no difference.
It has come to a point where, as I have shared a number of times, the USA even has foreign based left wing rights groups, operating openly in America. And as Drew pointed out to me in a recent mail, even operating from this side of the Atlantic, one woman was able to generate enough following and work the press and govts. here, to foul up American justice (? we still have that?) system with regard to drug used in the death penalty.  Which is now illegal to export to the USA.

Hey ... bad as things are on the borders re. the USA, be a little thankful you aren’t on this side where things can be even worse, with illegals coming from all parts of the world but specifically sandland and afrika and ..... you name the country.  It’s Europe and more specific, Germany and England and France and the Netherlands they infect. Britain is first choice btw.  You can’t have any idea unless you live here or Europe.  And who rules?  Who do ya think?
The left of course.

But there is some good news this week on the migration front.
There will be 140 fewer of them infesting Italian shores, after 140 were killed in a fight on a packed boat where they were being smuggled into Europe.
So far, five men are accused of killing the 140 of 560 life forms aboard the leaky craft.  Damn. Only 140. But hey, it’s a gift to be celebrated.

I ain’t gonna watch

Despite the 24-7 “world cup” soccer motif at Google, despite the internet being overrun with “soccer babes” wearing national colors and little else, despite my XFINITY cable TV going on at me about the games non-stop ... I’m not going to watch a single game. Not even in recap.

You see, 86 gazillion people are watching this shiz. In Denmark, in Norway, in Ireland, in France, in Germany, in Turkey, in Belize, and so forth. In the UK too, guaranteed. In India, no doubt.

I pay - and quite a lot, thank you - for top of the line High Definition cable television.

And I live in the United States of America.

So why the fudge is XFINITY forcing me to watch live game coverage in Spanish?

Do I fucking look like god damn Juan Fucking Valdez to you? Or his donkey?

I am sure that there is a live feed in English. Period.

Don’t give me that habla bullshit.

treating traitors well

Because I exist here and read the papers here and listen to radio news and such, I share the insanity (or what I believe is insanity) with the readers of bmews.

Sometimes, in fact often times, I feel a bit guilty.  That’s because in spite of whatever faults I may perceive, I have always admired this country and the history and have had very close friends here.  Even from my working days in radio and after, I had met some very good people.  At days end I seem to be somewhat more aware of news here than at home in the USA, which I may never see again.  Time will judge that statement.
Anyway ….  Once in awhile I pick up on some bit of total stupidity whose origins are the USA.  If I don’t dwell on those, it’s because I always think that being an American blog site, the readers here already are well aware of USA news, and so I’ll add nothing new.  Of course, I can add my opinion and have done and do so here now.

Judges we consider loopy also have a home in the USA, as you all know.
Now here’s a case in point.

That flaming faggot, Bradley Manning, the queer sob who stole and turned over to another creep bastard who I’d happily kill if given the chance, secret American documents while wearing the uniform of our country. OK you know all about that.

Well, he got 35 years in the slammer, it should have been death but okay. Lets hope the shit serves it ALL! And unhappily as well.

Not long ago, Braddy thweety decided he wanted to be called Chelsea and so libtard papers refer to him that way and that’s their right to do so I suppose.  It would not surprise me at all if some conservative American papers did as well.  But it bothers me that someone who took an oath to our country and betrayed it in they way he did, should have any consideration at all, much less be catered to in the manner he is.

Ok so a judge in April ruled that he could legally be called Chelsea, which I see as providing “aid and comfort” to an enemy. But as they say … what’s in a name?  So I forgot about that for a spell.  Have much else to worry about that’s more important than what some creepy queer traitor calls himself.  Btw ,,, have you seen that photo of the jerk in that blond wig?  What an ass.  He thinks he looks cute.

Well, the US Army in all its glory, is considering moving the shit in the blond wig to a civilian prison.  Why? Why a civilian prison?
Apparently military prisons aren’t geared for medical treatments.
Oh … is the little boy ill? No.

So far the decision hasn’t been made but ….

It’s at a civilian prison where hormone therapy can be carried out.
The final decision will depend on “ a proper balance of the soldier’s medical needs”.
What TF?  They’re even calling him a ‘soldier?’ *&!!$@’@%^

Come on … lets not kid ourselves.  The first step. Right?  Therapy and then?
Why a sex change of course. What else?  Now I really don’t give a damn about that so much as …

Who gets to pay for that?

Yeah. Right.

Why must we treat our enemies so damn well? So forget the firing squad and torture and all that.  Why does our system seem so damn intent on placating and making nice to an enemy, who has done so much against our country? 

And why can’t our side find a way to kill Snowden and Assange?

Have you seen the latest on Snowden?

It’s reported that he has more to share with the press, interesting too that it’s generally left wing press but never mind that part.
He is passing on a code to reporters that (in theory) will he and them to communicate without others (Brits and Americans) knowing what’s said and being passed on.

Hey ... if our side could take out OBL, why can’t we take out Snowden and Assange? Anyway ... who would miss the miserable bastards?
And if it was done, it should be in such a way that it would greatly discourage others from the same path.

state deletes one of two killer vermin as obama opines on Oklahoma death penalty

My screen is sitting on a small box which itself is on a phone book. That’s cos I have to stand.  Hip problem I think but hurts like mad in other places. Ouch.
Saw this item from the USA which as you will imagine is well covered by DP haters on this side of the Atlantic.  Like it’s their business you know.

I know all of you in the US by now are aware and I suppose the left are in tears and wringing hands etc.

White House condemns botched Oklahoma execution saying it was not done in a humane way as the death row inmate died of heart attack after FORTY MINUTES writhing in agony.

And that’s just one.
Oh dear,oh dear.
The humanity.

Yeah well, I think some are ignoring the “agony” his victim suffered. F*** him.
I care more about the loss of a great actor, Bob Hoskins, at the age of 71. His was a worthwhile life and gave pleasure not pain to many.

However ... lets remember what Lockett took part in, and what his victim suffered.

Pay attention reader. Below from the article, comes almost at the very end of a very long piece in one morning paper. I haven’t read the other one yet but my bet would be it’s much the same. Oh, those barbaric Yanks. To which I’d reply, damn right. And happy to be both.

A four-time felon, Lockett was convicted of shooting 19-year-old Stephanie Neiman with a sawed-off shotgun and watching as two accomplices buried her alive in rural Kay County in 1999 after Neiman and a friend arrived at a home the men were robbing.

Warner had been scheduled to be put to death two hours later in the same room and on the same gurney.

The 46-year-old was convicted of raping and killing his roommate’s 11-month-old daughter in 1997.

He has maintained his innocence.

Lockett and Warner had sued the state for refusing to disclose details about the execution drugs, including where Oklahoma obtained them.

So here’s the rest of that headline and a link should you want to read the whole thing, and see photos of the broad nosed, thick lipped brown vermin who are involved in this story.
Now mind you ... I could be mistaken but.  Perhaps if the victim had been a black girl, her murder would have been printed way higher in the article?
Like the first line had her killers been white.


Clayton Lockett execution halted 20 minutes after first drug administered
This cocktail of injections had not been tried in Oklahoma before
Lockett sat up 13 minutes in and said ‘something’s wrong’
President Obama’s spokesman said that the White House does not believe the execution was done in a humane way
Oklahoma governor is calling for an independent review of the execution
Lockett’s victim’s family put out a statement- presumably written before the execution- saying they are ‘thankful this day has arrived’
Inmate finally suffered a massive heart attack and died at 7.06pm

By Helen Pow and Associated Press

read all

White House spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday that President Barack Obama believes evidence shows the death penalty doesn’t effectively deter crime.

Words by Sammy Cahn and Music by Julie Styne

It seems to me I’ve heard that song before
It’s from an old familiar score
I know it well, that melody

I know each word because I’ve heard that song before
The lyrics said “Forever more”
Forever more’s a memory
Please have them play it again
And I’ll remember just when
I heard that lovely song before

A class act gone.  shirley temple rip.

A touch of class .... 

H/T The Telegraph Obit page

Shirley Temple (RIP)

Shirley Temple was film’s most popular child star, with ringlets and dimples that dazzled audiences and studios alike

Shirley Temple, who has died aged 85, was the screen’s most popular child star of the 1930s, receiving at the age of eight 135,000 birthday gifts from fans the world over.

image

Throughout the Depression years, her sunny disposition helped audiences forget their woes and a special Oscar was presented to her for “bringing more happiness to millions of children and millions of grown-ups than any other child of her years in the history of the world”. It might have turned many a tiny tot’s head, but Shirley had her mother constantly at her side to ensure she was kept on an even keel.

Gertrude Temple was the architect of Shirley’s career, masterminding every aspect, every contract, what she ate, when she slept. Before each take, she would coach her, ignoring the director, and give her last-minute instructions. “Sparkle, Shirley,” she would say. A shrewd businesswoman, she knew instinctively how to manipulate the studios and their publicity machines to her daughter’s advantage. For good or ill, she turned little Shirley into a phenomenon. Everything she did was news. In October 1936, the world gasped as a bulletin flashed over the Reuter wires: “Shirley Temple has been sent to bed with a slight fever resulting from a cold.”

She was acting in pictures from the age of four and rapidly captivated filmgoers with her blond ringlets and dimpled charm. Dolls, books and games were named after her in a merchandising campaign matched only by Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse. Yet her talent was modest. She sang off-key and cynics dismissed her dancing as “mere jigging up and down”. She liked to do impersonations but her acting was generally regarded as cute rather than compelling.

She had the child star’s built-in self-destruct mechanism — what had seemed peachy in a moppet became arch in adolescence. Attempts to extend her career into young womanhood were unsuccessful and she made her last film in 1949 — washed up in Hollywood at 21.

Yet that was not the end of the Shirley Temple story. Against all sceptics’ expectations, the little girl who had never had a normal childhood matured into a distinguished politician and diplomat. She stood (unsuccessfully) for Congress before representing America at the United Nations and serving as US ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia under her married name of Shirley Temple Black.

image

She was born on April 23 1928 in Santa Monica, California, the daughter of a bank teller. Like many a proud mother, Gertrude Temple enrolled her child in dancing classes at the age of three and promoted her vigorously. A talent scout from Educational Pictures, a small company specialising in shorts, spotted Shirley and invited her for a screen test, which led to her appearance in 1932-33 in a string of film spoofs known as Baby Burlesks. Among them were The Incomparable More Legs Sweetrick (as Marlene Dietrich), The Pie-Covered Wagon and Polly-Tix in Washington.

She alternated these performances with small parts in now forgotten feature movies such as The Red-Haired Alibi (1932) and To the Last Man (1933), opposite Randolph Scott. While filming a second series of shorts for Educational under the title Frolics of Youth, she and her mother were approached by the much bigger Fox Film Corporation (later Twentieth Century-Fox) with a view to Shirley featuring in the film Stand Up and Cheer (1934). She passed the audition and was signed up for $150 a week. When the film opened, she stole the show with the song and dance routine Baby Take a Bow.

Recognising her star potential, Fox swung its publicity department into action. But it did not have her under exclusive contract. Earlier in the year, the astute Mrs Temple had forged a two-picture deal with Paramount and it was that studio that initially reaped the benefit of her sudden fame. It rushed her into two pictures in 1934 to fulfil the contract — Little Miss Marker, based on a Damon Runyan story, and Now and Forever, in which she was the go-between who reunites an estranged couple played by Gary Cooper and Carole Lombard.

On the strength of these pictures, Shirley’s Fox contract was renegotiated to $1,250 a week. She was cast in Bright Eyes, where she sang one of the songs indelibly associated with her, On the Good Ship Lollipop, and from then on vehicles were written especially for her. By the end of 1934, aged six, she was the eighth biggest draw in America.

A year later, she was number one and held that position four years in a row, attracting more fan mail than Greta Garbo and being photographed more often than the President himself. “I class myself with Rin Tin Tin,” she volunteered brightly.

She churned out pictures at a tremendous lick — sometimes five a year through the late-1930s — and the public clamoured for more. Features included, in 1935, The Little Colonel, Curly Top, a remake of Daddy Long Legs, and The Littlest Rebel, in which she told Abraham Lincoln that he was almost nice enough to be a Confederate. The 1936 clutch had Captain January, Dimples and Poor Little Rich Girl, while in 1937, the title role in an adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s Wee Willie Winkie was changed from boy to girl especially to accommodate her.

image

in this film led to a notorious libel suit involving the future novelist Graham Greene, then employed as a film critic by the magazine Night and Day. At a cocktail party, after what he later described as “a dangerous third Martini” Greene dreamt up the idea of deflating the Temple balloon, but he peppered his review of her performance in Wee Willie Winkie with such litigious terms as “bilious coquetry”, “dimpled depravity” and “mature suggestiveness”.

Shirley and Twentieth Century-Fox sued. In court in March, 1938, Sir Patrick Hastings, counsel for the plaintiffs, was too mortified to bring himself to utter Greene’s words. “In my view”, he said, “it is one of the most horrible libels that one can imagine about a child. I shall not read it — it is better I should not — but a glance at the statement of claim ... is sufficient to show the nature of the libel. This beastly publication appeared but it is right to say that every respectable news distributor in London refused to be party to its sale.”

The plaintiffs won; $5,250 punitive damages were awarded to Fox, $7,000 to the actress and Night and Day folded. But as a postscript to the episode, the mature Shirley Temple bore the novelist no grudge. In 1989, she sent him an inscribed copy of her autobiography, Child Star, and invited him to tea.

american military and minority religions

OK bmews .... whatcha think of this?

I’ll have to be honest and confess, I really don’t know what to think.  It’s like, is this going to be one of those slippery slopes we read about so often and hear mentioned in interviews?
If the military must make (reasonable) allowances for minority religions and foreign customs, doesn’t it leave itself open in the future for new religions or old ones it today has not heard of? 

Truth to tell ... I’ve finally come around to the attitude that, heck. Doesn’t affect me and nothin’ I could do about it if it did, so just ignore it. At my age with whatever time is left to me, I have other things to be worried about.  I was never even comfortable with those new style berets I see the military wear btw.
They look too European for my taste, and I think they were originally designed by one or more artsy-fartsy fags.


Pentagon Eases Rules on Turbans, Beards in Military

By Robert Longley

The Department of Defense has issued new regulations allowing members of the military who follow minority religions to outwardly display signs of their beliefs, such as turbans and beards, as long as they do not interfere with military readiness, mission or discipline.

According to a Pentagon press release, requests for religious accommodation, while considered on a case-by-case basis, will usually be denied only if officials decide the item being worn or displayed:

Impairs the safe and effective operation of weapons, military equipment or machinery;
Poses a health or safety hazard to the service member wearing the religious apparel;
Interferes with the wear or function of special or protective clothing or equipment such as helmets, flak jackets, flight suits, camouflaged uniforms, protective masks, wet suits and crash and rescue equipment; or
Otherwise impairs the accomplishment of the military mission.

“Each request must be considered based on its unique facts, the nature of the requested religious accommodation, the effect of approval or denial on the service member’s exercise of religion, and the effect of approval or denial on mission accomplishment, including unit cohesion,” stated a Pentagon spokesman quoted in a press release.

According to the new directive, “the importance of uniformity and adhering to standards, of putting unit before self, is more significant and needs to be carefully evaluated when considering each request for accommodation.”

The directive also spells out criteria for evaluating “hair,” “grooming,” and “religious body art,” including tattoos and piercings as valid expressions of “sincerely held beliefs,” that cannot used as a reason for discipline or other “adverse personnel action.”

In addition, the new directive specifies that service members are free to not observe any religion at all.

“The Department of Defense places a high value on the rights of members of the military services to observe the tenets of their respective religions and the rights of others to their own religious beliefs,” said Navy Lt. Cmdr. Nathan J. Christensen in a statement, “including the right to hold no beliefs.”

While members of the U.S. military are not required to declare any specific religious affiliation, Department of Defense statistics show that about 3 service members have self-declared themselves as Sikh Americans, 6,300 as Buddhists, 3,700 as Muslims and 1,500 as Wiccans.

Scrutiny of American military bases in Britain could be increased dramatically.

Posting this because ... I am almost certain it won’t make the news in the USA.

I suppose Brits have some rights on what goes on in their own country.  What really bothers me though is, this whole thing is the work of the left and the useful idiots who enable them.  However, if it’s an American base, aren’t we paying rent for the place?
Just some food for thought with the info for you that, this report comes from a left wing newspaper.  Sometimes they do have opinions from the right, and at least they are not the Guardian.  So I skip the really anti American diatribes from a few of the jerks who will never find anything we do the right thing, unless they approve of it.  Which translated of course means we would have to come around to their way of thinking and seeing things. They’d be happy to approve of us then.
Screw em.  It’s really more than spying on friends although yes, that does bother the heck out of our critics friend and foe alike.
But the real underlying thing that has their collective knickers in a twist, is America’s use of drones.  Especially drones being launched or even controlled from their homeland or possessions.

Peers call for proper scrutiny of American military bases in UK used for drone strikes and mass spying

By Cahal Milmo

Scrutiny of American military bases in Britain could be increased dramatically for the first time in more than 60 years under cross-party proposals provoked by evidence that the installations are being used for drone strikes and mass spying activities.

Draft proposals tabled by peers from all three major parties demand that the Government overhaul the “outdated” rules under which the Pentagon’s network of UK outposts operate following claims of British complicity in US drone missions in the Middle East and eavesdropping on European allies.

The Independent revealed last year that RAF Croughton, the US Air Force base and CIA relay station in Northamptonshire, was used to funnel back to Washington data from the network of diplomatic spy posts implicated in the monitoring of the mobile phone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The same base has a secure data link to a US counter-terrorism facility in Djibouti used for drone strikes in Yemen while questions remain about the use of other US bases in Britain, in particular the National Security Agency eavesdropping facility at RAF Menwith Hill in North Yorkshire.

The revelations have fuelled concern in Parliament that British oversight of the bases, which operate under the 1951 Status of Forces Agreement, is outmoded and in urgent need of drastic revision because the legislation was drawn up long before technology such as drones or mass surveillance.

Three senior peers from the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats - along with a crossbencher - have tabled amendments to defence legislation currently going through the House of Lords demanding that the Government considers the introduction of measures including a new “scrutiny group” for each US base to ensure all activities carried out comply with British law.

Under current arrangements, each US base is nominally under the command of a British officer but critics say meaningful oversight is impossible.

There’s a lot more to read on this topic and some of you will find it of interest.

an update to a story from yesterday … vicious killer dies, family to sue ohio

Yesterday I made mention of a worthless pile of crap who was executed in Ohio.

Originally, the paper said it took him 15 minutes to die.
Another report in another paper today says 25 minutes.  Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.
What I do care about is this.

Oh dear oh dear .... poor daddy was tortured to death. Sob-Sob
We want our lawyers ... sue-sue

‘People should be ashamed’:

Family speaks out on Ohio’s 25-minute ‘experimental’ execution for convicted murderer and rapist

As more ghastly details emerge of the slow death of Dennis McGuire, anger is growing at the inhumanity of the US’s approach to capital punishment – and relatives of the dead man are seeking legal redress.

A cocktail of lethal drugs began to flow into Dennis McGuire’s bloodstream shortly before 10.30am on Thursday morning. The 53-year-old convicted murderer from Ohio was to be the first prisoner executed with a new method of lethal injection, using an untested mix of the sedative midazolam and the painkiller hydromorphone.

Normally, the victims of lethal injection show movement in the early moments of their execution, and then lie still. McGuire, by contrast, remained motionless for approximately five minutes, before snorting suddenly and gulping for air.

McGuire had been sentenced to death for the brutal 1989 rape and murder of a young, pregnant newlywed, Joy Stewart. His final words were to Stewart’s family, who watched his execution, thanking them for the “kind words” they had offered in a letter to him. He then told his children “I’m going to heaven, I’ll see you there when you come.”

His daughter Amber watched alongside Stewart’s family as he gasped several times, before finally expiring at 10.53pm. Ms McGuire covered her ears to block out the sounds of her father’s last breaths. He had taken some 25 minutes to die.

“It was the most awful moment in my life to witness my dad’s execution,” Ms McGuire said in a statement later. “I can’t think of any other way to describe it than torture.”

At a news conference this morning, Ms McGuire and her brother announced that they would pursue a lawsuit over the manner of her father’s execution. Ohio state is now expected to face a legal challenge to its plans for the February execution of another convicted murderer.

SOURCE and more

Maybe someday if we’re lucky, this shit and her brother will themselves be the victims of violent crime. 
Be interesting to hear what tune they sing then, if they survive.

OK, I found this update in a paper called iNews.  It’s a paper often so left (but not as bad as the Guardian) that Drew once said he was surprised it wasn’t printed on pink paper.  So the slant of course will be anti DP.
Take a look at the comments page following the article. 

Idiots! Plus the usual Americans uncivilized, the DP is not a deterrent, there are more murders in US states that have the Death Penalty, than in states that do not.

Where do they get that from?  Or is it made up?  I’d read or heard it before.
There’s no accounting for what the left accepts as truth.  Among the comments there are some that are not from the left.  Not a lot, but they are there.  Most are not from the USA. Oh, and the other thing left wing nut jobs like to spout.
How America must change our justice system and ban the DP, if we don’t want to be seen in a negative way by the world.

Might that be the part of the world we help support?

Fuckin euro-weenies and their convenient idiot American left winger friends.

angry women can be downright scary people. and mrs o. looks like, if looks could kill

Wow ... who’d a thought?  Ah .. right. You folks probably.

Actually, I am somewhat surprised if it’s all true.  Hey, silly me.  I was shocked at the revelations concerning President Kennedy’s affairs while in the large white bldg in DC.  I think what always catches me off guard, is a bit of naivety on my part for the following reason.

I seem to think (too often it appears) that since the Kennedy stories which continue even in these days, and was brought up in a paper here only this week, I naively think that a serving president would be very much aware of the press. Most especially the more sensational types.  I’d have thought Obama might take a look back at Clinton, who had less to lose in a way.  By which I mean, Michelle hasn’t shown near as I can tell, any desire for high public office, so she could have less to lose than say Mrs. Clinton who was very much a political animal.  So anyway, I foolishly think ppl in those positions are looking over their shoulders all the time and making the cautious decision to behave least they end up exposed and embarrassed.
I am wrong every time and surprised every time because I suppose I have discounted or not counted in any way, for human nature.
Clinton sure didn’t appear to be embarrassed by his exposure. 

It appears that this story is now out in the open true or not, in the USA.  How could it not be?
But I’m curious to know if this angry looking Mrs. O. is making the rounds there as well.

Is the Obama marriage on the rocks? Astonishing claims emerge of ugly fights over that selfie, and even a Presidential affair

Michelle Obama alleged to have discovered her husband has been unfaithful

Reports claim they will separate at the end of his presidency in 2016

Follows claims in two books that couple neared divorce in early 2000’s

With invitations warning guests to ‘EBYC’ — Eat Before You Come — and rumours they’ll be dancing to star turns from Beyonce and her rapper husband Jay Z, it won’t be your usual White House knees-up.

Michelle Obama was 50 yesterday and President Barack Obama will be feting his redoubtable First Lady tonight with a party that will give them the chance to let their hair down and forget their troubles for a few hours.

The email inviting guests to the ‘snacks & sips & dancing & dessert’ advised them to wear comfortable shoes and practise their dance moves.

Purse-lipped Washington etiquette experts have tutted at the informality of it all, but the Obamas have always been keen to appear accessible, even if the stand-offish reality is somewhat different.

The Obamas are the world’s most scrutinised couple at the best of times, but it will be rare to find a guest at the bash who won’t be secretly watching them with particular interest.

After all, the last time they were pictured together — at Nelson Mandela’s memorial — the First Lady was looking none too pleased as the her husband posed for a ‘selfie’ photograph with the leggy blonde Danish Prime Minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

Indeed, if the U.S. tabloids are to be believed, the relationship of Washington’s golden couple is facing problems that go far beyond dirty looks.

Under the headline Obama Divorce Bombshell!, the National Enquirer claims their 21-year marriage has dissolved in a string of ugly fights that were prompted by the Mandela memorial incident and — far more outrageously — Mrs Obama’s discovery that Secret Service bodyguards had been covering up infidelity on her husband’s part.

It’s an allegation the White House has declined to comment on, though after Bill Clinton’s trouser-dropping scandals, Americans would be rather less sanguine about any extra-marital activity than the French appear to be over President Francois Hollande’s behaviour.

Mrs Obama, the Enquirer claims, intends to stand by her husband until his presidency is over, at which time he will move back to Hawaii, where he grew up, and she will stay in Washington with their children.

For the moment, they are allegedly sleeping in separate bedrooms after Mr Obama’s attempt to ‘mend fences’ backfired so badly on a recent Christmas getaway to Hawaii that he returned to Washington with their two daughters, leaving his wife behind.

The National Enquirer, it must be said, quoted only anonymous insiders in support of these sensational claims, and is hardly the most reliable source of hard news.

Obama advisers are certainly not talking as if there is any scandal in the offing. Washington’s media has ignored the story.

But everyone remembers how the Enquirer famously got it right when it claimed the supposedly squeaky clean Democrat presidential contender John Edwards had fathered a love child by a former campaign worker.

Thin as its story may seem at the moment, might it be on to something again?

‘There was little conversation and even less romance. She was angry at his selfishness and careerism; he thought she was cold and ungrateful’

- Washington reporter Richard Wolffe

14 taken to hospitals after Minneapolis fire

MINNEAPOLIS — A billowing fire engulfed a three-story building with several apartments near downtown Minneapolis early Wednesday, sending more than a dozen people to hospitals with injuries — some critical — ranging from burns to trauma associated with falls.

An explosion was reported about 8:15 a.m., and within minutes a fire raged through the building, said Robert Ball, a spokesman for Hennepin County Emergency Medical Services. Paramedics, amid sub-zero temperatures, responded to find victims on the ground, some with injuries that suggested they may have fallen multiple stories.

A mosque that is next door to the gutted building appeared to escape any obvious structural damage. Abdisalam Adam, the imam at Islamic Civic Society of America & Masjid Dar Al-Hijrah, watched the firefighting efforts and said he was praying for those affected by the fire.

“It’s devastating and very sad,” he said.

The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said it was monitoring the fire in case the mosque was targeted, said MN-CAIR board member Zuhar Ahmed.

In the subzero stillness of New Year’s Day morning, an explosion and fire tore through a century-old building in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, injuring at least 14 people — six critically — and destroying an immigrant-owned grocery store and the 10 apartments above it.

Family members and friends reported that three or four others known to have lived in the apartments have not been located and are feared dead.

...

The building housed the Otonga grocery store. The apartments above it were apparently all occupied by single men, most of them East African immigrants, a resident said.

It may be quite a while before we find out the cause of the fire, if indeed we ever do. Therefore the rest of this post is pure speculation. The entire incident smells fishy…

A big explosion occurs next door to a mosque that has an unabashed affection for the Muslim Brotherhood, in a Somali neighborhood where terrorists are known to hang out — what could possibly be amiss with that?

Nothing, except possibly an Islamophobic hate crime, according to CAIR ...

...

The earliest photos show an intense and rapidly-spreading fire that looks like it originated on the second floor, immediately above the grocery. This would be consistent with the unexpected detonation of an explosive substance — say, ammonium nitrate, just to pick a random example — which then distributed very flammable material within an enclosed space, creating a flash-fire.

Were the three missing occupants would-be mujahideen who experienced a premature… ahem… detonation?

This section of Minneapolis is known as “little Mogadishu” because of the large Somali population.

The building where the explosion took place had a Halal market on the first floor and a mosque that teaches sharia law next-door. According to Star-Tribnue, “the apartments are all occupied by single men.”
...
Tonight, suicide bombers killed at least 11 in the Somali capital of Mogadishu. The group behind the attack is Al-Shabaab, an al Qaeda cell.  They were responsible for last years Westgate mall attack in Kenya.

Because the cause of this morning’s explosion Minneapolis is not yet known so it is pure conjecture to say that there is a connection between the explosion in the terror event half a world away.. However, there is a clear connection between Minnesota and the group behind the Mogadishu car bombings.

Three Minnesota man who went to Somalia to martyr themselves for Al Qaeda were featured in a recruitment film last year.

We’ve seen hundreds of cases of premature detonation (alla ack-oops!) over the past decade. Nearly everywhere the jihadis build their little bombs, some Imadumbjihad manages to set one off by accident. And there is a KNOWN terrorist connection in this neighborhood.

But don’t expect anything from the feds. Hell, these people here are Somalis ... Africans ... Eric Holder’s “people”. They can’t be terrorists! Not allowed!! There are no terrorists in or from Africa! No jihadis, none!! Never!

Nothing to see here, move along. Because, racist!!!!

deyfon he be trying to get into house thru winow but boom go de home owner bye defon

H/T Raffs for sending this to me. I have just been able to check inbox, which as usual is overloaded.

Well done Eddie and thanks.

So now Texas is short one dark criminal. Lots of others waiting in line.

The guy did the shooting is coming into some heat from the family of course. This is Raff’s take on the story which says it all.

COMMENT FROM THE SIDELINE:

“That’s certainly true, Lakesha. He could also have invited him in and given him a beer, then helped him cart the TV out to the curb.

“Unfortunately for Deyfon, Texas is a Castle Doctrine state, and the homeowner chose to shoot Deyfon, as is right and proper to do in Texas.

“For that matter, Lakesha, you could have warned Deyfon.

Why didn’t YOU tell him: ‘Deyfon, yo’ needs to quit breakin’ into those peoples’ houses and stealin’ they shit. Someone is goins to pop a cap in yo’ ass.’”

God must love stupid people; He made so many.

Raffs

A homeowner fatally shot a man as he climbed through a window and into his home Monday afternoon, Dallas police say.

The shooting took place at a home on the 2200 block of Morrell Avenue at about 4:15 p.m.

Police said the homeowner heard a noise inside his residence and shot a man, later identified as 33-year-old Deyfon Pipkins, aka BJ, as he climbed through the window.

“The homeowner heard a noise. He came around the corner, saw the individual trying to climb into the window and according to the law, the castle doctrine, he used deadly force,” said Sgt. Calvin Johnson, with the Dallas Police Department.

According to police, the homeowner then called 911. When police arrived, officer’s found Pipkins’ body lying lifeless in the window.

Pipkins mother, Catherine, said she had been called to the scene by her daughter-in-law and said the crime sounded like something her son would do.

“Yeah, it’s something he would do ... Somebody called me and said my son got shot that’s the reason I’m standing here,” said Catherine Pipkins. “Somebody called her [her daughter-in-law] and told her he had got shot. She said, ‘Momma you need to sit down, they said BJ just got killed.’ That’s the reason I’m here.”

The woman said her son did not live at the home.

Pipkins had a lengthy criminal history in Dallas that included numerous charges for theft, trespassing and possession of a controlled substance.

Police said the shooting is a Castle Doctrine case and the Dallas County Grand Jury will decide whether or not the homeowner faces any charges.

it’s who ya know

I forgot which source this comes from. And I managed to lose the photo I had.

I’m just posting a story my guess is you already know about.  It just rankles me that my wife was treated so shabbily by the KGB at LAX on two trips home. Well what the heck.  Wrong color (white) and not related to anyone in high office.


President Barack Obama’s uncle allowed to stay in the US

President Barack Obama’s uncle has been granted permission to stay in the US, despite ignoring a deportation order more than two decades ago.
Judge Leonard Shapiro said Onyango Obama, a 69-year-old who has lived in the country for more than 50 years, “appears to me to be a gentleman,” citing a law that entitles immigrants to permanent residency if they arrived before 1972, have lived there since and are of good moral character.

Mr Obama’s immigration status didn’t become public until his 2011 drunk driving arrest in Framingham, 20 miles west of Boston. The charge was dismissed after he completed a year of probation and 14 weeks of alcohol education classes.

The judge said he considered testimony about Obama’s character, including letters from people who praised him for being a “kind and decent person,” and considered the drunk driving charge and allegations of discrepancies in what he told immigration officials 20 to 30 years ago.

Mr Obama, who was born in Kenya, is the half-brother of the President’s late father. He entered the country on a student visa in 1963, and after a series of immigration hearings in the 1980s was ordered to leave the country in 1992 but remained.

Obama told the judge he had led a quiet, simple life, graduating from high school in Cambridge, then attending Boston University, where he received a degree in philosophy. He said he has worked for years as a manager at a family-owned liquor store in Framingham. He also said he has worked for decades to help African immigrants find housing and settle in the US.

He added that he had been a hard worker, paid income tax and been arrested only once.

Asked about his family in the US, he said he has a sister and two nieces, then added, “I do have a nephew.” Asked to name the nephew, he said, “Barack Obama. He’s the president of the United States.”
He described America as “a land of opportunities, a land of chances.”

Onyango Obama’s lawyer, Margaret Wong, called him a “wonderful older gentleman.”

She said: “He has earned his privilege to stay in the United States. He has been here for 50 years.” Mr Obama could get US citizenship after five years, she added.

the danger to america is not obama …. read on before you flame.

Been out of things lately but trying.

The following I believe has been around since 2009, and I have only just seen it thanx to a very dear friend of some 30 years.

Neither of us know the origin and there was no link.  That said ... do we need one?

H/T LynneP

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”
