  • CIA Man Is Key to U.S. Relations With Karzai.The Obama administration has turned to the Central Intelligence Agency's station chief in Afghanistan to troubleshoot Washington's precarious relationship with President Hamid Karzai, propelling the undercover officer into a critical role normally reserved for diplomats and military chiefs.The station chief has become a pivotal behind-the-scenes power broker in Kabul, according to U.S. officials as well as current and former diplomats and military figures. In April, when Mr. Karzai lashed out against his Western partners, it was the station chief who was tapped by the White House to calm the Afghan president.

  • Job fears grip voters as Obama ratings fall.More Americans now disapprove of President Barack Obama than approve of him as high unemployment and government spending scare voters ahead of November's midterm elections, Reuters/Ipsos poll found on Tuesday.In the latest grim news for Obama's Democrats, 72 percent of people said they were very worried about joblessness and 67 percent were very concerned about government spending."The economy is really catching up to Obama and his administration," said Ipsos pollster Cliff Young. "For a time, voters gave him the benefit of the doubt. He inherited a very dicey economic situation and they were willing to give him time," Young said. "Patience has ... basically vanished."

  • Yes Folks, Hindenburg Omen Tripped Again.The Omen, a technical indicator which uses a plethora of data to foreshadow a stock-market crash, was tripped again on Friday, marking the second time since Aug. 12 it has occurred. (It also came close on Thursday, but one of its criteria fell short.)The latest trigger has prompted the Omen’s creator, Jim Miekka, to exit the market. “I’m taking it seriously and I’m fully out of the market now,” Miekka, a blind mathematician, said in a telephone interview from his home in Surry, Maine. “I would’ve probably stayed in until the beginning of September,” depending on how the indicators varied. “That was my basic plan, until the Hindenburg came along.”

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Good Grief: Ground Zero Imam’s Wife Now Being Sent on U.S. Taxpayer Funded Trip to Middle East to Trash America.Yup, the same woman who just said America is “beyond Islamophobic” is being sent by the Obama regime’s State Department to give her views on Muslim life in the U.S. to the United Arab Emirates.Hmmm getting to hot in the USA?

  • Obama Justice Dept. Argued in Favor of Using Race As a Relevant Factor Among Others to Justify Immigration Stops.In at least three court cases, President Obama’s Justice Department has argued in favor of federal law enforcement officers using race as a factor in determining whether to stop someone for a suspected immigration violation.

  • Rangel on the Hot Seat in Debate."Frankly, he has not been around long enough to determine what my dignity is,” Mr. Rangel said of the 49-year-old Mr. Obama." For the next two years, I will be more likely to protect his dignity."

  • The Afghan Taliban on Tuesday rejected comments by the commander of NATO and U.S. forces that their progress had been reversed, saying attacks were increasing around the capital as well as in their heartland in the south.The Taliban have also become increasingly sophisticated in their use of the media and issued a statement on Tuesday to deny Petraeus's comments.A poll released last week by NBC and the Wall Street Journal found that seven in 10 Americans did not believe the war would end successfully.

  • Protests, Rhetoric Feed Jihadists' Fire.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.

  • HT:TheAstuteBloggers.The UN has ratified the theft of Kosovo from Serbia!Remember the Balkan War in the 1990's? Do not think it is over and has been "solved"!Do not praise Lord Paddy "Pantsdown" Ashdown for the invaluable service he has provided for peace in the region!Read more here.

  • Fake Hate Crimes: An Islamist Weapon.Over the recent Fourth of July weekend, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) interviewed attendees of the 47th annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention about their experiences in dealing with "Islamophobia." Shortly afterwards, on July 6, CAIR called on the FBI to investigate an act of arson at a Georgia mosque, saying that hate crimes were increasing because of a "vocal minority in our society promoting anti-Muslim bigotry."

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.Imam Rauf on the State of Israel.In case any of you hadn't figured it out yet.... Imam Rauf has a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian problem. It is not the two-state solution supported by the United States, Israel, and the Quartet. No, he believes that the “one-state solution is a more coherent one than a two-state solution.” In other words, a unitary Arab state in all of the old Palestine Mandate, the end of Israel as a Jewish state, with a Jewish minority living under the control of radical Islamists who will treat them as dhimmi.How much longer can the fiction be maintained that this man and his proposed Ground Zero mosque is a moderate and a man of peace?It has been maintained for too long already.

  • Iran Detains Two Members Of Reformist Student Group.Two members of the alumni association of the country's largest reformist student group have been detained by security forces in Tehran.

  • Hikind To Mayor Mike: Denounce Ground Zero Mosque and Imam!Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) is calling on Mayor Bloomberg to withdraw his support of the Ground Zero mosque in the wake of the revelation of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s anti-American and anti-Western rhetoric. Rauf has been quoted as saying, “We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands that al Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non-Muslims. . .the West has not been cognizant and has not addressed the issue of its own contribution to much injustice in the Arab and Muslim world.”Hikind, who has been an outspoken critic of the proposed project, recently demanded that the Mayor apologize to all New Yorkers for his sanctimonious remarks chastising those who oppose the building of the mosque.“The Mayor needs to publicly denounce this contemptuous Imam and withdraw his support for the project,” Hikind said. “It is unconscionable for this plan to move forward.”Hikind also noted, “How can this mosque possibly promote tolerance and understanding when the very foundation will be built with blood money from our enemies in Iran, Saudi Arabia, and other Muslim countries which despise us?

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon delivered a message to the Iranian people on Monday by means of an Israel Radio broadcast in Farsi. "Israel bears no animosity towards the Iranian people. We have deep respect and aspire to cooperate with them to bring about a better reality in the region. The problem is intrinsic to the Iranian regime and its conduct, particularly regarding the nuclear issue. This is a regime that calls for 'Death to the United States, Great Britain and Israel'. The Iranian regime spreads instability, supports terror, and oppresses its own people. It is impossible to accept atomic weapons in the hands of such a regime.

  • Roger Ebert’s Moral and Intellectual Bankruptcy: 10 Ridiculous Statements Supporting Cordoba House.In his most recent post, “Ten things I know about the mosque,” Ebert takes on opponents of the Cordoba House project near ground zero of the 9/11 attacks. In usual Ebert fashion, his post lacks an overall thesis and wanders aimlessly between several barely related thoughts. In light of this stream-of-consciousness writing style, answering Ebert requires point-by-point refutation. Hence, here are ten things I know better than Roger Ebert.

  • Al Sharpton Hypocrisy: Build the Ground Zero Mosque, But Glenn Beck Can’t Pray at Lincoln Memorial.Al Sharpton is a professional bigot. During his long career the Reverend has incited two anti-Semitic pogroms: the Crown Heights riot and the firebombing of the Jewish-owned Freddy’a Fashion Mart in Harlem. Each of the Sharpton-incited pogroms resulted in deaths, but now for some unknown reason Reverend Al believes he is the caretaker of religious tolerance in the country, as well as the protector of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy of peaceful protest.

  • For Obamacare supporters, judgment day approaches.Say you're a Democratic member of Congress. You proudly cast your vote for Obamacare, you cheered when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hailed it as the achievement of a generation and you scoffed at Republicans who vowed to repeal it. Now you're running for re-election, and a voter asks: What is the most important thing you've done in the last two years?

  • Fears of Arctic oil rush as 'oil-bearing sand' discovered off the coast of Greenland.British firm Cairn Energy has sparked fears of an Arctic oil rush today as they confirmed the discovery of 'oil-bearing sand' in the untapped waters off the coast of Greenland.Cairn's discovery could indicate signs of a 'working hydrocarbon system' in the Baffin Bay basin.The group said it had discovered gas in thin sands in the area, which signals potential for oil.

  • Dem Strategist on Obama: “He Is a Walking Radioactive Disaster”.A democratic strategist warned his colleagues today that Barack Obama has become a “walking radioactive disaster.”


  • The Mosque IS At Ground Zero!Despite what the Associated Press and the politically correct say, I agree with Iman Feisal Abdul Rauf in calling the Cordoba House (oh, excuse me, Park51) the Ground Zero Mosque. It is insane to consider the former site of the Burlington Coat Factory anything but Ground Zero.

  • More Muslims Speak Out Against Ground Zero Mosque.Muslims across the U.S. and around the world are speaking out against building an Islamic center and mosque near the mass murder site at Ground Zero in lower Manhattan.Their statements show the emptiness of a handful of Arab and Muslim Republican activists who, in a well-publicized letter defending the Ground Zero mosque, purported to speak for the interests of “the Arab and Muslim community in America.” They also eviscerate claims that critics of the project are motivated by prejudice and hatred toward Muslims.Even before the six GOP Muslim and Arab-American activists signed the August 17 letter, Muslims in the U.S. and abroad were criticizing Imam Feisal Rauf and his $100 million Cordoba Initiative project. Some Muslims called the mosque plan a deliberate provocation, a political gesture to thumb one’s nose at the “infidel,” and equivalent to building a Christian church where Serbian troops slaughtered 6,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica, Kosovo.

  • America's 10 Most Bedbug-Infested Cities.Amid a national outbreak of the parasitic insects, The Daily Beast crunched numbers provided by a national exterminator to rank the 10 cities with the worst bedbug problem.

  • HS test 'slams' Christianity, lauds Islam.State testmakers played favorites when quizzing high-schoolers on world religions -- giving Islam and Buddhism the kid-gloves treatment while socking it to Christianity, critics say.Teachers complain that the reading selections from the Regents exam in global history and geography given last week featured glowing passages pertaining to Muslim society but much more critical essay excerpts on the subject of Christianity.The passage reads: "Wherever they went, the Moslems [sic] brought with them their love of art, beauty and learning. From about the eighth to the eleventh century, their culture was superior in many ways to that of western Christendom."

  • West Java, Christians celebrate in the streets demanding freedom of religion.The Sunday service of Yasmin Church was held in Bogor. Islamic extremists put pressure on the civil authority that closed their place of worship, even if legal. The liturgical services are held in the streets since April 10.

  • Revealed: Dramatic details of secret missions carried out by Lawrence of Arabia's X Flights.An amazing diary of previously unpublished and intimate details of secret missions led almost 100 years ago by Lawrence of Arabia has been uncovered.Retired lecturer James Hynes, 80, had been in contact with his cousin when she told him of a type- written journal of her father’s experiences with hero British army officer Lt Col TE Lawrence during World War One.The diary features stories of espionage and bombing campaigns known as 'X Flights' led by Lawrence across the former Ottoman Empire.

  • Video:Humpback Whale Delivers Spectacular Show.A humpback whale has put on a spectacular show in waters off Australia's north Queensland state coast on Monday.

  • Tech at Night: Net Neutrality, FreedomWorks, Christian Coalition, RIAA, Copyright, Cybersecurity, Intel, McAfee.Way back when I started covering this issue, I said there were three names on the Save the Internet (Free Press front group) list that bugged me: Gun Owners of America, Christian Coalition, and Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds. If we can peel off at least two of three, I’ll be happy.

                          Morning Posting.
  • Audio of Ground Zero Mosque Imam Surfaces: U.S. Worse Than al-Qaeda, Drops the N-Word, Praises Suicide Bomber Condoning Cleric Yusuf al-Qardawi.“We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non-Muslims.

  • Obama Regime Apologizes to the U.N. Human Rights Council for America’s Human Rights Record.Its come to this, we’re now apologizing for America’s supposed sins (as the left perceives them) to the U.N. Human Rights Council, which is rabidly anti-Israel, dominated by the OIC and coddles some of the worst human rights abusing regimes in the World. Hope and change, baby!

  • Odd Connections of Some GOP Backers of Ground Zero Mosque.Looking ahead at the November midterm elections and the Ground Zero mosque controversy, a group of Arab-American and Muslim Republicans wrote in an open letter, “we cannot support victory at the expense of . . . the Arab and Muslim community in America.”Read those words carefully. These self-styled Republicans, who are criticizing those who object to the mosque being built so close to the 9/11 death site in Lower Manhattan, say that it is more important to leave the Islamic center where it is planned than it is to help Republicans win control of Congress and defeat the Obama agenda this fall.Moderate Muslims?Good luck finding one you have better odds finding an Unicorn.

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Muslim Soldier Wants to Leave Army.A U.S. Army soldier wants to leave the military service as a conscientious objector based on his beliefs as a Muslim, but he says he’s concerned he may be deployed to Afghanistan anyway.Pfc. Naser [sic] Abdo, 20, an infantryman assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Ky., said Monday that if the military orders him to deploy, he will refuse to go despite the fact that it may result in a military charge against him.

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.Obama lied. Will Israelis die? On Friday, I reported that Israel would not bomb the Bushehr nuclear reactor or any other Iranian facility - for now - because the Obama administration had 'convinced' Israel that the Iranians will not have nuclear weapons for at least another twelve months. Gary Milhollin, the executive director of the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control, writes that Obama (or his administration) lied. Iran's nuclear clock has not slowed.

  • State Department: We’re Not Hiding Ground Zero Imam.We just don’t want anyone to know what he’s REALLY up to.State Department officials insist they are, “not hiding” Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf during his outreach tour of middle eastern countries in wake of the mosque controversy. However, the U.S. government has also refused to release a detailed itinerary of Rauf’s day-to-day schedule.Another great example of transparancy under the Obama regime.

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Former German Finance Minister Under Investigation for Inciting Racial Hatred After He Warns Muslims Are ‘Making Germany Stupid’.A LEADING German Social Democrat has written a book with an apocalyptic vision of his country sliding into poverty, stupidity and Muslim domination.Thilo Sarrazin, 65, a former Berlin finance minister and current Bundesbank board member, is already under investigation by a public prosecutor for allegedly inciting racial hatred by blaming immigrants for making Germany “dumber” and calling Muslim children “underclass citizens.”Now his book, Germany is destroying itself: How we are gambling with our country, threatens the strained social fabric of the “multi-culti” Fatherland once more at a time of rising racial tensions and the radicalisation of Islamic youth.

  • HT:TheAmericanDream.20 Signs That America Is No Longer The Land Of The Free.The United States was able to defeat Nazi Germany and helped bring down the USSR, but is the U.S. government now quickly becoming just like them? Once upon a time, America was the land of the free and the home of the brave, but today the government has become an oppressive monster that is intrusively embedding itself in our lives in thousands of different ways. Today we are all viewed as potential threats to the "system" that the government has imposed, and therefore everything that we do must be watched, tracked, traced, recorded and controlled.

  • Islamist Aggressors Are Really the Victims.Things are getting ugly and more surreal far more swiftly than anyone thought possible.Just today, roving male vigilante squads are menacing women in Chechnya for not wearing headscarves during Ramadan; they are attacking women verbally, punching them, spraying them with paintballs, and taunting them with automatic rifles.So much for those who insist that wearing a headscarf or a face veil are free “choices” and have no consequences for those who do not exercise the same “choice.”

  • Obama, Pelosi and Reid legislate a 15 year hyper inflationary depression.Obama and his accomplices Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have engineered through their legislation of the last two years a 15 year hyper inflationary depression. The conditions for such an occurrence are inked in stone.China has stopped buying our debt and Bernanke is now buying the debt from himself.How does he do this? He issues bonds and gets the Federal Reserve Board to print the money to buy them. This is like a business owner going to his photocopying machine and printing the cash he needs then buying his products and services from himself and claiming business is booming. That is how bad the country’s finances are.This is the only thing Bernanke can do to accommodate Obama's trillion dollar shopping sprees.

  • Jews are Wising Up: Leaving the Left and Moving Right in Record Numbers.In a recent survey by respected pollster Pew Research Center, the largest religious demographic shift in political party identification came from Jews. About 12% of Jews surveyed said their party affiliation was no longer the Left-leaning Democratic Party and about 13% more now identified as Right-leaning Republicans. About 3 times more Jews recently went to the Right than most other religious denominations. According to Pew: Republicans also have made gains among Jewish voters; 33% now identify or lean Republican, up from 20% in 2008.What, exactly, does that mean? Well, it’s obvious – that Jews aren’t dumb people. We know which way the wind blows and when you have a president and administration that saddles up with terrorist supporting regimes, most smart people would move in the opposite direction. When you have a president who accuses an entire country of mostly Jews of disliking him because of his middle name, we tend to get a little insulted – not to mention question his sanity.

  • Headscarf ban sparks debate over Kosovo's identity.The home of Florinda Zeka in central Kosovo is an idyllic spot, surrounded by undulating hills.The silence of the countryside is broken only by the family chickens wandering idly through the garden.But for the last few months, life for this 17-year-old has been anything but peaceful.She was forced to leave school when she donned the hijab - or Islamic headscarf - in March, after the Kosovan government banned them in state schools.

  • Slideshow: Opponents and supporters protest at the site of the 'Ground Zero mosque'. It was somewhat ironic to see two groups fully expressing their First Amendment rights over a story which essentially involves the freedom of expression and religion.By most accounts the opponents to the Park51 project outnumbered supporters.Police had to keep the two sides separated over fears of violence.Opponents unveiled one banner that displayed a woman being tortured and stoned under Sharia law. Another setup involved an Arab mannequin on top of two mock missiles. The message of the opponents seemed to be that Islam is a religion of violence, an obviously debatable point for supporters.

  • HT:Amnon&Jonathan.Pakistan's ex-spy Chief blames Israeli Mossad &U.S. Air Force for WTC attack.Q: So what makes you think Osama wasn't behind Sept. 11? A: From a cave inside a mountain or a peasant's hovel? Let's be serious. Osama inspires countless millions by standing up for Islam against American and Israeli imperialism. He doesn't have the means for such a sophisticated operation.

  • Study Links Chronic Fatigue to Virus Class.When the journal Science published an attention-grabbing study last fall linking chronic fatigue syndrome to a recently discovered retrovirus, many experts remained skeptical — especially after four other studies found no such association.Now a second research team has reported a link between the fatigue syndrome and the same class of virus, a category known as MRV-related viruses. In a paper published Monday by The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists found gene sequences from several MRV-related viruses in blood cells from 32 out of 37 chronic-fatigue patients but only 3 of 44 healthy ones.The researchers did not find XMRV, the specific retrovirus identified in patients last fall. But by confirming the presence of a cluster of genetically similar viruses, the new study represents a significant advance, experts and advocates say. “I think it settles the issue of whether the initial report was real or not,” said K. Kimberly McCleary, president of the CFIDS Association of America, the leading organization for people with chronic fatigue syndrome.

  • Obama Stem Cell Regulations Temporarily Blocked.A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked Obama administration regulations expanding stem cell research.The nonprofit group Nightlight Christian Adoptions contends that the government's new guidelines will decrease the number of human embryos available for adoption.more here.

  • Miners in Chile could be trapped for months, must overcome severe mental trauma (Video).33 gold miners in Chile could be trapped underground for four months according to engineers. Psychologists believe the miners must overcome major psychological trauma during confinement 2300 feet below the earth's surface.

  • 22-year-old Mexico woman crowned Miss Universe.A 22-year-old Mexico woman won the Miss Universe pageant Monday night after donning a flowing red gown and telling an audience it's important to teach kids family values.Jimena Navarrete of Guadalajara was first contestant to answer an interview question onstage and the last of 83 standing in the headline-grabbing pageant on the Las Vegas Strip."I want to give my parents a big hug," she said at a news conference after the pageant. "There was a lot of effort and a lot of sacrifice."

  • Pont-Saint-Esprit poisoning: Did the CIA spread LSD?Nearly 60 years ago, a French town was hit by a sudden outbreak of hallucinations, which left five people dead and many seriously ill. For years it was blamed on bread contaminated with a psychedelic fungus - but that theory is now being challenged.

  • NY Times scoop: Carteret Islands expected to be under water by 2015.If a Country Sinks Beneath the Sea, Is It Still a Country?Among them: If a country disappears, is it still a country? Does it keep its seat at the United Nations? Who controls its offshore mineral rights? Its shipping lanes? Its fish?And if entire populations are forced to relocate -- as could be the case with citizens of the Maldives, Tuvalu, Kiribati and other small island states facing extinction -- what citizenship, if any, can those displaced people claim?Until recently, such questions of sovereignty and human rights have been the domain of a scattered group of lawyers and academics. But now the Republic of the Marshall Islands -- a Micronesian nation of 29 low-lying coral atolls in the North Pacific -- is campaigning to stockpile a body of knowledge it hopes will turn international attention to vulnerable countries' plights.

                         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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

  • Fidelity sees record number raid their 401(k)s.Hardship withdrawals spike in troubling sign for economy.In the wake of news about a spike in new applications for unemployment benefits comes another potentially troubling sign: A record number of workers made hardship withdrawals from their retirement accounts in the second quarter.What's also eye-opening is that 45 percent of participants who took a hardship withdrawal a year ago took another one this year, McHugh said.

  • 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.

Ultimately, nationalizing healthcare is designed to create a major new government revenue stream by replacing private health insurance with a nationalized, mandatory, government program and their goal is identical with your retirement plan.

  • 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?

Later, I had them burned. They were a curse and business tripled following their removal."He added: "With regard to the Royal Family visiting Harrods again, I doubt they would dare to show their faces."

  • 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."

  • At least seven implemented stonings by the Iranian autorities in the past 4 years ,at least 14 people waiting in the Iranian prisons to be stoned to death.As the stoning sentence of Mrs. Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani has received increasing international attention, Iran Human Rights has published a short report on the sentence of stoning in Iran.Commenting this report, Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, the spokesperson of Iran Human Rights, said: "This report is based on information from reliable human rights sources as well as sources within the Iranian judiciary. Our purpose is to shed light on the facts regarding the incidence of stoning in Iran".

  • 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.

  • Please! Someone call 9-1-1! Eugene Robinson Just O.D.'ed on Stupid Pills!Something is very wrong with the Washington Post's Eugene Robinson. The proof is in the pudding or, in the case, the bowl full of stupid served up by Gene on Friday.

  • 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.

  • Bedbugs found in small area in basement of Empire State Building. First came King Kong.

  • 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.

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.
