                         Afternoon Posting.

  • MUSLIMS threaten SUICIDE BOMBINGS against ‘Qur’an burning’ church in Florida.Islamic radicals are seizing on protests against a planned Islamic community center near Manhattan's Ground Zero and anti-Muslim rhetoric elsewhere as a propaganda opportunity and are stepping up anti-U.S. chatter and threats on their websites.One jihadist site vowed to conduct suicide bombings in Florida to avenge a threatened Koran burning, while others predicted an increase in terrorist recruits as a result of such actions. "By Allah, the wars are heated and you Americans are the ones who…enflamed it," says one such posting. "By Allah you will be the first to taste its flames."

  • KUHNER: President's socialist takeover must be stopped.President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached.He is slowly - piece by painful piece - erecting a socialist dictatorship. We are not there - yet. But he is putting America on that dangerous path. He is undermining our constitutional system of checks and balances; subverting democratic procedures and the rule of law; presiding over a corrupt, gangster regime; and assaulting the very pillars of traditional capitalism. Like Venezuela's leftist strongman, Hugo Chavez, Mr. Obama is bent on imposing a revolution from above - one that is polarizing America along racial, political and ideological lines. Mr. Obama is the most divisive president since Richard Nixon. His policies are Balkanizing the country. It's time for him to go.

  • Football Coach Fired for Anti-Obama Song?A Tennessee middle school football coach said he got fired after he wrote a song that criticized President Obama.Bryan Glover, an assistant coach at Grassland Middle School near Nashville, co-wrote the country music song, “When You’re Holding a Hammer, Everything Looks Like a Nail.”It was co-written by a parent who has a child on the team. Glover, 26, said he emailed a copy of the song to friends, family members and player’s parents through his personal email account.And that’s when all the trouble started for the self-described independent conservative.Do not question the great leader?

  • Number of People Who Have Signed up For ObamaCare in New Jersey: 2 ,yes it's right TWO!Just two people in New Jersey will begin receiving coverage Monday under new plans created by federal health care reforms.NJ Protect plans are available to those who have been without insurance for at least six months and submit evidence of pre-existing health conditions.The state will receive $141 million in federal subsidies to cover claims that exceed the premiums paid by the beneficiaries.

  • Poll: 48% of American Voters Think Obama’s Political Views are “Extreme”.Forty-eight percent (48%) of U.S. voters now regard President Obama’s political views as extreme. Forty-two percent (42%) place his views in the mainstream, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.By comparison, 51% see the views of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as mainstream. Thirty-five percent (35%) think Clinton’s views are extreme. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.

  • Michelle Obama, Laura Bush plan joint 9/11 event.It’s a first for first ladies: Michelle Obama and Laura Bush will appear together next month on the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks in Shanksville, Pa., where United flight 93 went down after the crew and passengers fought back against terrorists. Administration officials said the event will build on Obama's focus on the heroes of Sept. 11 — celebrating their heroism, honoring their memories and supporting their families.Damage control or sneaking in another Mosque?

  • New York mosque controversy worries Muslims overseas.Some can't understand the fuss over a house of worship and how a democracy promoting religious freedom could even be having such a debate. Others are offended at the conflation of the 9/11 attacks with all Muslims.The United States has historically been distinguished by its tolerance, whereas Europe, France, Belgium and Holland have been among those who have rejected the symbolism of Islam.Hmmmm were they not the main contributors to the Crusades also?Must be something genetic i guess?

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Video: Communist Speaker at Pro-Ground Zero Mosque Rally Rails Against “Zionist Jews”.Note: Remarks about “Zionist Jews” starts at the 3:55 mark.The guy making the racist comments is the man in the blue hat and shirt. According to the press his name is “Comrade Shahid.” They messed up his name, it’s Shahid Comrade, and yes, he’s a commie.

  • Angelina Jolie Plays Humanitarian Role In Bosnia.Angelina Jolie has visited Bosnia in her role as UN Goodwill Ambassador as she prepares to shoot a film in the country.She met with Bosnian leaders in Sarajevo over the weekend to speak on behalf of refugees displaced after the 1992-1995 conflict."I hope that there'll soon be practical steps to improve these people's lives," Jolie said in a statement.

  • White House Visitor Logs Suggest J Street Contributed To U.S.-Israel Diplomatic Crisis.J Street representatives met with the Obama administration frequently during the flare-up resulting from Joe Biden's visit to Israel.Last month the White House pulled out the red carpet to welcome Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, but the charm campaign is a new phenomenon. Less than six months ago, the U.S.-Israel relationship was in deep trouble.

  • Iran To Raise Baby Girls As Basij Members.A female commander of the pro-government Basij militia, Zohreh Abbasi, has said that her unit has introduced a special program that allows baby girls to be registered as members of the force and receive training.Abbasi, who heads the Hossein Haj Mousaee unit, said that in the past six years 23 baby girls had been trained as Basij members through "Koranic, cultural, educational, and military" classes."In this regard Basij mothers register their baby girls 40 days after they were born at the Hossein Haj Mousaee unit by presenting documents and IDs," Abbasi was quoted as saying by Iranian news websites.Ok that's probably something like the Evian baby ,but instead of roller skates machine guns?


  • Covert Operations.The billionaire brothers who are waging a war against Obama.On May 17th, a black-tie audience at the Metropolitan Opera House applauded as a tall, jovial-looking billionaire took the stage. It was the seventieth annual spring gala of American Ballet Theatre, and David H. Koch was being celebrated for his generosity as a member of the board of trustees; he had recently donated $2.5 million toward the company’s upcoming season, and had given many millions before that.One dignitary was conspicuously absent from the gala: the event’s third honorary co-chair, Michelle Obama. Her office said that a scheduling conflict had prevented her from attending. Yet had the First Lady shared the stage with Koch it might have created an awkward tableau. In Washington, Koch is best known as part of a family that has repeatedly funded stealth attacks on the federal government, and on the Obama Administration in particular.

  • The Barack Obama Project: An Over-Budget Horror Flick.Sometimes, non-supernatural events can evoke worse fear and dread than any ghosts, gore or monsters.This past week as Americans heard their leader speak at a Ramadan dinner, as they heard Obama bash his own Democrat-ruled Congress in the driveway of the White House before leaving for Blue Heron Farm, and as they witnessed his support of building a mosque near sacred ground in New York, their previous anger may well be turning to terror.James Joyce defined terror as “the feeling which arrests the mind in the presence of whatsoever is grave and constant…and unites it with the cause.”We are there. The threat of sharia, the decimation of capitalism through Marxist policies and the disintegration of social paradigms are indeed “grave and constant.” And polls show that almost 51% of the American people have identified the immediate cause-the policies of Barack Obama.

  • Muslim festival on 9/11 canceled!Muslims fear backlash as festival falls near Sept. 11.Citing a growing atmosphere of distrust, especially since the issue of the Islamic center near Ground Zero erupted, some plan to tone down celebrations of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan."We thought it might be misunderstood and create a wave of attacks on our faith and community," said Imam Seyed Ali Ghazvini, the center's religious leader. "It's really just a community celebration that happened to occur on 9/11. …The way some local media outlets are attacking our faith and community created a serious fear among members of this community."Yeah Christians are renowned for committing attacks with suicide bombers and jihad?

  • Jewish groups slam American woman in charge of Ground Zero mosque for saying treatment of Muslims is 'anti-Semitic'.Miss Khan - the wife of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the driving force behind the mosque project - also claimed she was being subjected to ‘metastasised anti-Semitism’ by those who oppose their plans.Her comments drew fire from the two leading bodies which represent Jewish people in America.The Anti-Defamation League and the American Jewish Committee said she was wrong to make the comparison and accused her of being ‘inappropriate’.But Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League, said: ‘There is no question in my mind that there are some bigots who are using the mosque as an excuse for Islamophobia. But to compare this to anti-Semitism is an inappropriate comparison.

  • ‘Catholics for Choice’ Throws Mother Teresa Under The Bus.Last year the Empire State Building shone in red and yellow lights to honor the 60th anniversary of the Chinese Communist revolution. Yet under its founder, Mao Zedong, the Communists killed 77 million people. In other words, the greatest mass murderer in history merited the same tribute being denied to Mother Teresa.

  • Is President Obama a Christian?Marx, Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right: “Religious distress is at the same time the expression of real distress and the protest against real distress. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions.”Another MUST read.

  • HT:Mitchell Langbert.Obama Lied About His Religious Affiliation.Because of recent poll findings (reported in Newsweek, for example, with factual errors) that as much as 31% of the public believes that Obama is a Muslim, there has been a spate of publicity concerning an issue that surfaced on my blog during the election campaign: whether then-Senator Obama was lying about his religious affiliation. the Trinity United Church of Christ appears to have made doctrinal adjustments to accommodate its constituents. They were African Americans who wanted a veneer of Christianity, which many of them had been raised with, to cover their newly acquired black nationalism and Nation of Islam inspired faith.So a new syncretic religion was born, Muslim Christianity.Read the whole story here! 

  • Hostage situation Latest updated news Video:Seven dead after former policeman hijacks Manila bus.Philippine police have stormed a hijacked bus in Manila, ending a day-long siege in which a group of Chinese tourists was taken hostage.At least seven hostages died and officials said police marksmen shot and killed the gunman.A former policeman armed with an M-16 had seized the bus in an apparent attempt to get his job back.More on this story here,and here.

  • Oriflame workers detained in Iran as operations shut.Iranian authorities have closed the Tehran operations of Oriflame Cosmetics and detained five workers, the Swedish firm has said.The reasons for the move were disputed, with Tehran alleging fraud and Oriflame saying the authorities disliked it employing women in certain roles.Last week, Iran's commerce and culture ministries called the company illegal and blocked its local internet site.Oriflame said the move could be because it employs women as sales consultants.Iran and women rights hmmmm?

  • When It Comes to the Ground Zero Mosque: ‘Truth Is the New Hate Speech’.The left is dismissive of the grief and offense caused by the prospect of a victory mosque at Ground Zero. The left is contemptuous of how 9/11 families and the majority of Americans feel; they’re sick in their fierce rush to erect the mosque. They’re even trying to blame me for America’s natural and logical response to an Islamic supremacist mosque being built on a site that was part of the 9/11 attack. The Geller hit pieces have been coming fast and furious and obvious, as if discrediting me will make the pain and anger over the mosque go away.

  • Video:CBS Anchor Blames Internet for Obama Religion Confusion.CBS News' Bob Schieffer decries the internet as the "only news delivery system that doesn't have an editor" and discusses the "nuts, perverts and those who are simply looking to validate their prejudices" who get their news from the web.CBS continues to prove why they remain the number one voice of this generation.

  • Pope's UK visit to involve strict rules for pilgrims.The Catholic Church of England and Wales has published a guide for those attending events with the Pope during his visit to the UK next month.There will be strict controls over what can and cannot be brought into the three large public gatherings in London, Glasgow and Birmingham.Alcohol, barbecues, gazebos and musical instruments will all be banned as they "could pose a threat to others".However, picnics, banners and flags will all be allowed.The instructions appear on the official papal visit website.

  • Tiger Woods and wife Elin Nordegren are divorced.Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren have divorced, the couple said in a statement posted on the world number one golfer's website."We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future," the couple said.They said the primary focus of their divorce negotiations had been their two children's well-being.Mr Woods, 34, had a five-month lay-off from golf after admitting a number of extra-marital affairs.


  • Beer microbes live 553 days outside ISS.A small English fishing village has produced an out-of-this-world discovery.Bacteria taken from cliffs at Beer on the South Coast have shown themselves to be hardy space travellers.The bugs were put on the exterior of the space station to see how they would cope in the hostile conditions that exist above the Earth's atmosphere.And when scientists inspected the microbes a year and a half later, they found many were still alive.

  • NY mosque imam: US rights in line with true Islam.Feisal Abdul Rauf says freedoms enshrined by Constitution reflect Muslim values; mosque supporters, opponents rally in lower Manhattan. While tempers were heated, there were no signs of violence between the two sides, which were kept several blocks apart by police.Obama has said he supports the right of Muslims to build the center near Ground Zero, while Republicans, including former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, oppose it. Others have suggested it be moved to a less controversial location.

  • HT:LogisticsMonster.Why Does Obama Have Two Companies Incorporated In The UK?I received a very interesting email that showed, among other items, that Barack Obama has two companies incorporated in his name in the UK according to Alfred Adask (his post below). How many Barack Obamas exist in the world? Do any Monster readers in England want to do some digging? Is this how the revenue is redistributed to the Queen and the international banksters?

  • Why Do Feminists Attack Sarah and Not Sharia?Given Islam’s enslavement of women and the Sharia erection of the Cordoba Initiative’s chief con man, Abdul Rauf, you’d think N.O.W. and their ilk would now be raising more Cain about this Ground Zero Mosque than they are about Sarah Palin.

  • Iran begins mass production of 2 assault boats.Inauguration of production lines for missile-launching speedboats comes day after Iranian President Ahmadinejad unveiled country's home-built bomber drone, which he said would deliver 'death' to Islamic Republic's enemies.Iran has threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, choking off some 40% of tanker-shipped oil worldwide, in the event of a military attack.

  • Obama's Royal Retinue.Vacationing Obama can't shed White House entourage ... President Barack Obama had a simple task for his first morning on vacation: shoot over to a Martha's Vineyard bookstore to fill out his daughters' summer reading list and grab himself a novel. Easier said than done. His SUV, part of a 20-vehicle motorcade, passed through a cordon of Massachusetts State Police motorcycle officers, in a protective cocoon of Secret Service agents.Conclusion: Like a titular head-of-state, Obama rushes from vacation to vacation with breathless coverage throughout. And while people may speculate as to why he is taking so many vacations, we think we know: There's just not very much he can do on the job, and his power is actually fairly circumscribed, not by the office but by circumstance and sociopolitical evolution. Picking a vacation destination may be the clearest and most unencumbered decision he gets to make. But then again, perhaps Michelle and the children do the choosing.

  • Why We Fight: The 10 Worst Islamofascist Terrorist Attacks Since 9/11.In 2006, 24 Muslim men were arrested in Britain as they were entering the final stages of a plot to blow up as many as 10 jets headed for the U.S. Their plan was to mix an explosive cocktail, disguised as innocuous beverages, and detonate the mixture using a common electrical device such as a cellphone or mp3 player.

  • Bangladesh bans Islam dress code.A Bangladesh court has ruled that people cannot be forced to wear skull caps, veils or other religious clothing in workplaces, schools and colleges.The ruling came after reports that a college in the north had forced students to wear veils.The high court also ruled that women cannot be prevented from taking part in sports or cultural activities.The court said that wearing any form of religious clothing, for students and employees, should be a personal choice.

Over the last week he has been ubiquitous in the major newspapers and on television as he pursues a publicity tour to pitch the war he’s inherited. But have you heard any buzz about what he had to say? Any debate? Any anything? No one was listening and no one cared.

'They killed me in prison a million times, denied as I was from seeing my children and family. So what more do they want from me?'To finish your sentence perhaps?

  • The left has gone completely insane?Remember also that historically, some of the most shocking brutality in the region was justified by the Bible, not the Koran. Crusaders massacred so many men, women and children in parts of Jerusalem that a Christian chronicler, Fulcher of Chartres, described an area ankle-deep in blood. While burning Jews alive, the crusaders sang, “Christ, We Adore Thee.” My hunch is that the violence in the Islamic world has less to do with the Koran or Islam than with culture.More such idiocies you can read here!

  • Somalia is turning into Afghanistan: Somali rebels increasingly resemble Taliban, with floggings, music bans and possible al-Qaida links.Wherever Islam gets a foothold, after it starts building cross-cultural "bridges", it turns a country into a brutal, medieval shithole and works to exterminate infidels.Men are forced to grow beards.

Now many are choosing investments they deem safer, like bonds.If that pace continues, more money will be pulled out of these mutual funds in 2010 than in any year since the 1980s, with the exception of 2008, when the global financial crisis peaked.Small investors are “losing their appetite for risk,” a Credit Suisse analyst, Doug Cliggott, said in a report to investors on Friday.

To the city of Philadelphia, it's a potential moneymaker, and the city wants its cut.In May, the city sent Bess a letter demanding that she pay $300, the price of a business privilege license.


  • 10 Bigoted Remarks Made by the ‘Tolerant’ Left In Obama’s ‘Post-Racial’ America.During the 2008 Presidential campaign, we heard relentlessly about how Barack Obama would usher in the era of Post-Racial America. Upon his Presidential nomination and subsequent election, it reached a fever pitch, with every speech he made being lauded as the second coming of Martin Luther King, Jr. In reality, not so much. In fact, the reality was almost the antithesis of Martin Luther King, Jr’s dream – instead of being about character, everything became about the color of one’s skin.

  • Only a matter of time--inside the Muslim Brotherhood.As a world network that poses as a 'moderate' fellowship within Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated numerous organizations, campuses, and political groups with an extremist message of world domination.The group is also well-known for its numerous connections with terrorist organizations and state sponsors of terror, although leaders vehemently deny such charges.So thoroughly has the Brotherhood infiltrated vast sectors of American society that many counter-terrorism experts say it is only a matter of time until mayhem breaks forth with fury...against American citizens.

  • Will A Decline In The Credit Rating Of U.S. Government Debt Lead To A Complete Financial Disaster?Most Americans know that individuals have credit ratings, but many of them don't realize that countries have credit ratings too, and that even a small dip in the credit rating of a nation can have a huge economic impact. For decades, U.S. government debt has had a very, very high credit rating. U.S. Treasuries were generally considered among the safest, if not the safest, investments in the world. But that is starting to change. Just this past week, Moody's Investors Service said that the U.S. government has been running up so much debt that there is actually a danger that the credit rating of U.S. government debt could be downgraded at some point in the future. That would make it significantly more expensive for the U.S. government to borrow more money, and it would cause interest on the U.S. national debt to skyrocket even further.So why should we be concerned?

  • 15 Signs That The U.S. Housing Market Is Headed For Complete And Total Collapse.The U.S. housing market is dying. You will only hear hints of this on the mainstream news and from the politicians in Washington D.C., but as statistic after statistic continues to roll in, the reality of what is happening is becoming very difficult to deny. Up until the end of April, the giant tax credit that the U.S. government was bribing home buyers with helped stabilize the real estate market, but now that the tax credit has expired the decline of the U.S. housing market has resumed. Mortgage defaults continue to set new records. Foreclosures continue to set new records. Home repossessions by banks continue to set new records. The number of homes being constructed and the number of Americans applying for home loans is at stunningly low levels. For decades, owning a home has been touted as the very heart of "the American Dream", but today that dream is out of reach for an increasing number of Americans. Why?

  • Muslim center dispute sparks New York rallies.Supporters and opponents of a proposed Muslim cultural center and mosque near the World Trade Center site staged competing rallies in downtown Manhattan on Sunday, kept apart by police and barricades.The emotionally charged debate, which has gained national political significance, centers on plans to build the center two blocks from the site of the September 11, 2001 attacks by al Qaeda, which killed nearly 3,000 people.Hundreds of opponents on Sunday chanted "No Mosque," sang patriotic songs and waved photographs of violent attacks by Islamic extremists.One sign read: "Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all the terrorists were Muslim."Many in the crowd opposing the center were firefighters and construction workers, who carried signs reading: "This is Sacred Ground to New Yorkers."One sign read: "Everything I Ever Needed to Know about Islam I Learned on 9/11."

  • Emanuel Warned Obama: Keep Quiet On Ground Zero Mosque.Barack Obama has been criticized by both Republicans and Democrats over his backing of a plan to build a mosque near ground zero, the site of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on New York’s World Trade Center.Politico quoted several people familiar with the affair as saying that the US president publicly backed the plan despite a warning from Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and White House communications staffers that he would be “handing Republicans a weapon to batter Democrats as weak-kneed on terrorism three months before the midterms.”

  • A Dog Who Found the Master’s Leg: The 10 Most Braindead Statements In Defense of the 9/11 Mosque.As the 9/11 Mosque controversy was beginning to heat up the metaphor I conceived of to describe the Left’s predictable response was that of the teenager too scared to go “all the way.” I argued that the Left was “dry humping” Islam.That comparison seems too charitable. The level of submission now is just too overwhelming. Instead characterizing the Left as a puppy trying to show affection to its master seems more appropriate. The depths of submission to a stronger, more dominant ideology — Islam — presented here is just too stunning.

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Caption This: I Went To The Asia Adult Expo And All I Got Was The Lousy Barack Obama Inflatable Doll.Wonder how much the Dem. Congressional Committee had to pay the caption writer to identify Barack as a (R) instead of a (D)? It really isn’t looking good for them, is it?

  • Video:Woman Suing Disney Over Hijab Didn’t Wear It Until She Became A US Citizen.She Had Been Working For Disney For Two Years Without Wearing It.Hmmm.....perhaps we better stoned Mickey and Donald also?

  • I Don’t Think the President Has Room in His Life for Another God. Jake Tapper can’t say that Barack Obama is a Christian any more than I can because it’s an unprovable statement. The closest he can get to objective truth is to quote what the President says about his own religious beliefs, or list some actions that most of us attribute to fairly devout Christians.If I had to say he worshiped a God, that God’s name is Barack Obama.

  • HT:AmericanThinker.Let Me Translate: We Don't Believe Him - or You.Memo to the ruling class media: We are not ignorant or stupid. We've not forgotten Jeremiah Wright. It's not that we don't "know" what faith Obama subscribes to -- it's more that we don't believe him. Or you. Sorry. Not buying.Besides, sometimes we just like to tweak you with our poll answers -- and use any poll as an excuse to "vote against Obama" in any way, shape or form.Frankly, it has been equal parts comedy and insult to watch the ruling class media haplessly wrestle with the reality that millions of Americans believe Obama to be a Muslim. They are so clueless.

  • All 5 women contacted refuse to join Turkel probe.Justice Minister Yaakov Ne'eman tells cabinet that five top female legalists have decline to sit on panel probing flotilla raid.

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.How to tell a 'moderate Muslim'.All Muslims claim to be 'moderate' and everyone is trying to find 'moderate Muslims.' How do you tell when you have found the real thing? Syrian-born Fahrid Ghadry explains. None of the US Officials have any Islamic experts on their staff (Have to be non-Muslims because extremists will influence these officials) to be able to, reasonably, understand what the aims of the extremists are when they build a Mosque at Ground Zero even though it is offensive to the 9/11 families and many Americans.My guess a moderate Muslim is something like an unicorn you hear a lot about them but you never actually find one?

  • Taliban snipers who killed ten British soldiers die in air strike.Four deadly foreign mercenary snipers hired by the Taliban have been killed after being tracked down by British Special Forces in Afghanistan.They were among at least three pairs of crackshots recruited by the Taliban from Pakistan, Egypt and Chechnya.The mercenaries – who can kill troops at a range of up to 650 yards – are understood to have shot dead up to ten British soldiers in recent weeks.

  • Taliban claim captured U.S. solider has converted to Islam and is teaching its fighters bomb-making skills.A captured American soldier is training Taliban fighters bomb-making and ambush skills, according to one of his captors and Afghan intelligence officials.Private Bowe Bergdahl disappeared in June 2009 while based in eastern Afghanistan and is thought to be the only U.S. serviceman in captivity.The 24-year-old has converted to Islam and now has the Muslim name Abdullah, one of his captors told The Sunday Times.


  • Bedbugs found in small area in basement of Empire State Building. First came King Kong. Now, bedbugs are trying to conquer the Empire State Building.An infestation of the creepy crawlers has hit the city's most iconic building, the Daily News has learned.The little critters invaded an employee changing room in the basement, prompting building officials to call in exterminators."There were guys there last night, spraying down the place," a source told The News yesterday.Now just try to imagine what these little critters could do to a place full of carpets like a Mosque in New york?

  • Internet Freedom Coalition Reply Comments on FCC Title II. The Commission is being asked by Free Press and other organizations to pursue a radical course of action - reclassifying information services as telecommunications services in order to regulate the Internet for the first time. We write to urge the Commission to keep the Internet free of new government regulation and taxation and to refrain from rushing into such a potentially disastrous course of action.Analysts are only beginning to grasp the extent of the disruptive and destructive consequences of regulating the Internet under Title II of the Communications Act, and the Commission is in no position to predict the outcome, much less assure Americans it will be positive. Americans have heard political leaders admit that we will not know the full extent or nature of massive health care and financial services regulations until after the underlying legislation has been passed. Now, Americans are facing the imposition of an even lesser-understood regulatory regime over the Internet without the benefit of any legislative process whatsoever.

  • Tale of tween drug queen 'We all thought she was 18, 19 - not a child'.In a Queens housing complex infested with drugs and ravaged by crime, she stood out.Her clothes were expensive and revealing. She rarely socialized outside of her circle. And she walked the halls of her Almeda Ave. apartment building in Far Rockaway with a confidence that some found off-putting."She was real professional, like a little bit stuck up," said a 19-year-old resident who identified herself as Kayla."Not too friendly. ... Just businesslike."It wasn't an act, cops say.The girl, who looked old enough to be in college, was busted last week for selling crack to an undercover cop.

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Comrade Obama Declares: “We Cannot Allow the Corporate Takeover of Our Democracy”.As the political season heats up, Americans are already being inundated with the usual phone calls, mailings, and TV ads from campaigns all across the country. But this summer, they’re also seeing a flood of attack ads run by shadowy groups with harmless-sounding names. We don’t know who’s behind these ads and we don’t know who’s paying for them.Hmmm he must be talking about the boyscouts i guess?

  • Barack Obama and Islam: As the Twig is Bent, So Grows the Tree.As a political scientist, I’ve always thought of Obama as a Muslim if only because I tend to categorize people by the cultural influences which impact them as children. Early influences, for example, help us predict later political party affiliations.

  • Only Cowards Stone People to Death: An Islamic Religious Ritual.What does it mean when a mob of men, numbering anywhere from 50 to 200, stone a female child to death — as happened in October of 2008 in Somalia? That poor soul was not only a 13-year-old child, she had also just been raped. Indeed, that was her sole “crime” and the reason for her torture-execution. She was forced into a hole and buried nearly up to her neck. She took a long time to die and kept crying out for her life. In addition to the 50 active stoners, 1000 more men cheered them on.What does this tell us?

  • The greatest taboo: One woman lifts the lid on on the tragic genetic consequences of when first cousins marry.Sitting in the family living room, I watched tensely as my mother and her older brother signed furiously at each other. Although almost completely without sound, their row was high-octane, even vicious.Three of my uncles were born deaf but they knew how to make themselves heard. Eventually, my uncle caved in and fondly put his arm around his sister.My mum has always had a special place in her family because she was the first girl to live beyond childhood. Five of her sisters died as babies or toddlers. It was not until many years later that anyone worked out why so many children died and three boys were born deaf.Today there is no doubt among us that this tragedy occurred because my grandparents were first cousins.Some told us they face extreme pressure to marry in this way. One young woman, ‘Zara’, said when she was 16 she was emotionally blackmailed by her husband’s family in Pakistan who threatened suicide over loss of honour should she refuse to marry her cousin.She relented and lives in a deeply unhappy marriage. But others told me of the great benefits of first cousin marriage – love, support and understanding. To them, questioning it is an attack on the community or, worse, Islam.

  • Turkey making small but important advances in religious freedom.For anyone who believes in fairy tales!Somehow the distorted mind of the Turks thinks that by allowing to celebrate one mass a year that they allow religious freedom?These people also take away from the St. Gabriel Monastery’s 110 hectares of land originally owned by the monastery for over 1,600 years.So much for religious freedom.Another example of Al-taqiyya and dissimulation.

  • HT:WeaselZippers.MN Gov. Tim Pawlenty Says Obama is “Governing as a Misguided Liberal” – Video.Here is video of GOP Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty on with Sean Hannity where he blasted President Obama for “governing as a misguided liberal.” Pawlenty said Obama sold himself as a pragmatic centrist, but that now, his true self has emerged. Hannity said he would describe Obama as a “radical” rather than a “liberal,” and asked Pawlenty if he would agree with that description. Pawlenty avoided using the term “radical” to describe Obama.

  • Growing problem of abandoned babies in Malaysia.Malaysian authorities are grappling with the mounting problem of abandoned babies.Sixty-five infants have been found so far this year, and many were dead by the time they were discovered.The government fears that number will surpass previous totals - an average of 100 babies are found each year.The issue has touched a raw nerve in the Muslim-majority country.

  • Nearly 50 percent leave Obama mortgage-aid program.Nearly half of the 1.3 million homeowners who enrolled in the Obama administration's flagship mortgage-relief program have fallen out.The program is intended to help those at risk of foreclosure by lowering their monthly mortgage payments.

In the West, death by stoning is so remote from experience that it is best known through Monty Python skits and lurid fiction like Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery.”Yet two recent real world cases have struck a nerve: a young couple were stoned to death last week in northern Afghanistan for trying to elope, in a grim sign of the Taliban’s resurgence. And last month, an international campaign rose up in defense of an Iranian woman, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who had been sentenced to death by stoning on adultery charges.

President Barack Obama's Endgame: A Look At The National Debt !

                         Afternoon Posting.


  • Gov't: 23K workers affected by Gulf oil drill ban.WASHINGTON — The deepwater drilling moratorium in the Gulf of Mexico costs at least 23,000 jobs, according to a federal document that weighed the economic impact and alternatives to the drilling ban.A six-month suspension would directly put 9,450 people out of work and indirectly affect nearly 14,000 other jobs, according to a memo from Michael Bromwich, the nation's top drilling regulator. The July 10 memo to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar outlined several options regarding the suspension of offshore drilling."Were on the road off recovery"?More like off the road?Give back the keys!!!!!

  • Obama ‘Texts’ God, And Vice Versa.Holy BlackBerry! Obama Finds Ways to Keep the Faith During First Year in Office.Obama's spiritual advisor ,who is he?First, Jim Wallis has had relationships with the communist Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES).Second, his “Witness for Peace” was an attempt to defend the Nicaraguan [Communist] Sandinistas! Wallis, together with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright (Obama’s former pastor of 20 years) “rallied support for the communist Nicaraguan regime and protested actions by the United States which supported the anti-communist Contra rebels” Hmmm reminds me of Rasputin advising the last Tsar.

  • Video: ‘Iran’s Uranium a Problem for UN, Not the World’.Seyed Mohammad Morandi, a professor of politics at Tehran University, believes that it is only the UN which has issues with Iran -- not the whole international community.

  • The Latest from Iran (21 August): Khamenei v. Ahmadinejad?Family Matters. Zahra Rahnavard has strongly condemned the “Family Protection” bill, urging Parliament to reject it, as she claims that it gives more power to men to be polygamous without the knowledge of a wife and harshly discriminates against women. Rahnavard asserted, “Striking the so-called ‘Family Protection bill from Parliament’s agenda is not a feminist demand but rather is a symbol of national demand for the prosperity of the Iranian nation and the stability of Iranian families.”

  • Barak to U.S., France: Take steps to stop Lebanese flotilla.After announced delay in departure of women's flotilla, Defense Minister speaks with foreign ministers of U.S. and France, stresses that flotilla is an "unnecessary provocation."Defense Minister Ehud Barak spoke on Saturday with U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, U.S. National Security Adviser General Jim Jones, and French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, and asked them to act to prevent the launch of the Lebanese flotilla setting for Gaza.

  • Muslims, not Americans, are religious bigots!As Time puts it, it is wrong to “conflate Islam with terrorism and savagery.” But the world must be dealt with as it is and not as we wish it were. That requires us to accept the reality that Muslim nations are the most religiously intolerant places on Earth, and that a startling number of Islamic clerics worldwide still refuse to condemn violence against nonbelievers. In contrast, Americans who oppose the mosque are not even demanding that its developers be arrested or harmed in any way for their beliefs. They ask only that the mosque developers voluntarily show common sense, decency and sensitivity for America’s loss on 9/11.

  • Letter: Is polygamy next?An Aug. 14 letter concludes banning same-sex marriage violates the First Amendment by imposing Christian ideals. Could as well have said Jewish, Muslim and many more. The issue is “ideals.”Current ideals are “one consenting adult man and woman.” So we change to “two consenting adults.” We have no right to say man and woman. So where is the right to say, “two?” If the key is consenting adults, then an arbitrary limit as to the number and makeup violates First Amendment rights just as a limiting gender makeup does. Polygamy is next.

  • Video:Obama’s End Game. A Look at the National Debt," which takes a look at the debt crisis facing this country. To be clear, this is not a typical web video - this is an in-depth analysis of the impact of the national debt upon our nation's future and the government's actions over the past two years.America is at a critical crossroads, and the path we take will determine the kind of country we want to be. Our country is facing serious challenges; this video is a serious and substantive look at the crisis of generational debt being created by government today.A MUST SEE FOR EVERY AMERICAN!

  • Web Design FAIL: Iran’s New Holocaust Denial Cartoon Site.As a professional artist, writer, and web designer of 15 years and with almost thirty years of online experience (both web-based and BBS based), I very often scour the web for exceptional examples of web design. This week, I hit upon a doozie.Recently, Iran and it’s heavily state-controlled media wing made live a new website – HoloCartoons.com- which is based on a comic book written by Omid Mehdinejad and illustrated by Maziar Bijani. Plain and simple, the site denies the Jewish Holocaust as a fabrication and myth. Complete with swastika emblazoned user interface buttons, the site categorically rejects Jews as true followers of Moses and Abraham and even offers a “dedication” to those who lost their lives in WWII “under the pretext of the Holocaust”.

  • Are they lying to us?The deception behind the Manhattan Mosque.Are they speaking the truth or is this more deception?The Qur’an teaches that a Muslim can deceive the unbeliever when it is to his advantage. We see this in the doctrine referred to as taqiyya that even allows a Muslim to deny his own faith but still receive forgiveness from Allah, when to do so would protect him from harm.

  • Teenager begins world record sailing bid.A Dutch teenager hoping to become the youngest solo around-the-world sailor has begun her voyage from Portugal. Laura Dekker, 14, left Portimao at around 0900 GMT on Saturday aboard her 8m (26ft) boat Guppy, Dutch media said.Her manager said she had left in a very good mood despite calm conditions, but did not want to speak to the media.In April Ms Dekker won a court case against Dutch social services, who had tried argued that the voyage could harm her emotional and social development.The teenager will spend more than two years living alone on the boat.

  • Bears that defended B.C. Grow up face death sentence.B.C. conservation officers are hashing out what could be fatally bad news for bears found apparently guarding a marijuana garden in the province's southeast.A group of up to 15 black bears were discovered nearly three weeks ago near the popular resort area of Christina Lake lounging around a patch of more than 1,000 pot plants.They are being examined for their ability to get their food from the wild.Because they've become dependent on human handouts like dog food, some of the bruins may be unable to return productively to the woods and with winter approaching, that'll soon become apparent, said conservation officer Dave Webster."At that point, they'll be destroyed there's nothing else we can do with them," he said.

  • The Rev. Franklin Graham Says President Obama was 'Born a Muslim'."I think the president's problem is that he was born a Muslim, his father was a Muslim. The seed of Islam is passed through the father like the seed of Judaism is passed through the mother. He was born a Muslim, his father gave him an Islamic name,""Now it's obvious that the president has renounced the prophet Mohammed, and he has renounced Islam, and he has accepted Jesus Christ. That's what he says he has done. I cannot say that he hasn't. So I just have to believe that the president is what he has said," Graham continued, adding that "the Islamic world sees the president as one of theirs."When quoting a sermon from a World War II chaplain, Obama refused to use the exact quote and struck “Christ” from his modified version of the chaplains sermon.

  • Nearly 1/2 of Participants in Obama Mortgage Program Drop Out.WASHINGTON -- Nearly half of the homeowners who enrolled in the Obama administration's flagship mortgage-relief program have fallen out.A new report issued Friday by the Treasury Department said that approximately 630,000 people who had tried to get their monthly mortgage payments lowered through the effort have been cut loose through July. That's about 48 percent of the 1.3 million homeowners who had enrolled since March 2009. That is up from more than 40 percent through June.

  • Jihad's Ugly American Face.The ever-expanding list of U.S.-bred al Qaida operatives shows the terror group is trying to "flood the zone" of U.S. intelligence services to capitalize on what it considers a weakened America in the midst of a recession. This goal involves pushing forward an assortment of attacks and terror plots by lone wolves and poorly trained cells, experts say.

  • Coming to America: Sharia in Britain and its 17,000 ‘Honor’ Attacks on Women A Year.The Left’s new spin on Sharia is that it really isn’t all that bad, and we’ll never have it here anyway. So there is nothing to fear in Ground Zero mosques and pro-Sharia Imams being funded by our government to promote Islam here and abroad. The so-called liberal argument is that Sharia is a red herring of conservative haters and to warn of Sharia makes someone an Isalamaphobe. Guess the Left doesn’t pay attention to Britain.

  • Nobel Peace Laureate Appeals On Behalf Of Iran's Political Prisoners.Iranian Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi has appealed to the international community not to turn a blind eye to human rights violations in Iran.Ebadi said concern over Iran's disputed nuclear program should not eclipse the problem of human rights in that country. She also told the conference that political prisoners in Iran "are treated even worse than drug traffickers."

  • Americans still associate Islam with violence.The furor over plans to build a Muslim cultural center near the World Trade Center site shows nine years of efforts to separate Islam from association with terrorism have largely failed, experts say.Geeh i wonder why????

  • Brutality Against Women Stirs Fear In Afghanistan.The Taliban has denied that its militants tortured, hanged and shot a widow in Afghanistan's western Baghdis province for adultery.It's not the principle the Taliban disagrees with — in a lengthy press release, a Taliban spokesman said that the woman should have been stoned to death instead.Geeh i wonder why Americans associate Islam with violence?

  • My Visit With Teenage Afghan Girls.Katie Couric reports on the stories of teenage girls turned away from their homes as part of her series on Afghanistan—and asks whether the U.S. will stand by them.Geeh i wonder why Americans associate Islam with violence?

  • Lockerbie bomber 'rejected cancer treatment in jail' in desperate bid to secure his release.The Lockerbie bomber refused chemotherapy in a Scottish prison in an attempt to make his condition deteriorate and force his release, it was claimed yesterday.Abdelbaset Al Megrahi was believed to be terminally ill with prostate cancer when he was sent home to Libya on compassionate grounds exactly a year ago.But since his release Megrahi has responded well to a similar treatment – which is available on the NHS – and there claims that he could live another seven years.

  • The Christian Martyrs of C√≥rdoba.New York City imam Feisal Abdul Rauf claims that the proposed mosque at Ground Zero is an attempt by the Muslim community to “build bridges“.It is named after Cordoba in southern Spain, a city where between the eighth and 12th centuries, Muslims, Jews and Christians intermingled freely. In fact, during the 10th century under the Moorish caliphate, Cordoba became a major global city and boasted the world’s biggest library.

  • HT:WeaselZippers.True Face of Imam Rauf to be Revealed by Newly Discovered Audio Tapes.This fraud’s mask must be torn off. The American people must be made aware of the truth about the “moderate” Ground Zero Mosque organizers that Leftists are so vociferously supporting.

  • 'Cloud of suspicion' over Lockerbie bomber release.A group of US senators says a "cloud of suspicion" still hangs over the release a year ago of the man responsible for the 1988 Lockerbie bombing.Senator Robert Menendez called on Britain and Scotland to answer a number of "outstanding questions" over the case of Abdelbasset Ali al-Megrahi.Scottish ministers freed Megrahi, who has cancer, citing medical advice that he would likely die in three months.The Scottish government says the decision was taken in good faith.
