At last, a little sanity in the UK.

Want to preach hate and terrorism? Get the hell out.

LONDON — Prime Minister Tony Blair (search) on Friday announced new deportation measures against people who foster hatred and advocate violence following last month's transportation attacks that killed 52 people and four suspected homicide bombers.

Clerics who preach hate and Web sites or book shops that sponsor violence would be targeted. Foreign nationals could be deported under the new measures.

Blair said his government was prepared to amend human rights legislation if necessary if legal challenges arose from the new deportation measures.


I don't know how they're going to crack down on websites, although I'm sure it'll involve horrendous amounts of legislation. Personally, I think they went a little too far when they included the websites, but that's just me. However, I'm perfectly content to watch known terrorist supporters and inciters get a swift boot in the ass right out of whatever country they happen to be in. And I'd like to see something like this happen in the USA.

Now, I know that there might be some people who will start screaming "Freedom of speech!" if we booted some terrorist supporter out of the country. Hell, there are a few retards to scream that when I delete whatever they've vomited in the comments, which only shows how little people know about the rights they have. People who preach terror and hate have two problems when it comes to the US government:

1) If they're not American citizens, then they do not have the rights guaranteed to a citizen of this country. Ergo, they do NOT have the freedom of speech that you or I have. Remember, the rights outlined in the Bill of Rights apply to Americans, not to Canadians or Egyptians, or Lithuanians. So if these people who want to blow up American are citizens of any other country, they do not have the right to come here and talk about how Americans need to get blown up. It's that simple.

2) If they DO happen to be American citizens, there's a name for the act of inciting violence and hatred against your country: treason. And in the past, you were put up against a wall and shot for treason. So getting your citizenship yanked and kicked out of the country is rather minor compared to what would have happened less than one hundred years ago. If the only reason you've come to this country is so that you can tell everyone how horrible America is and how much we all need to be murdered, you don't deserve to be an American.

Now, the websites that preach hate? I don't think that we can really shut them down. I mean, anyone can get online and start up a website for whatever the hell they want, be it instructions on bomb belts or Manchurian Underwater Basket Weaving. Trying to shut down websites is like trying to swat mosquitos. Ever bug you squish is replaced by two or three more. But we can ensure that the people who preach terrorism aren't doing it from America.

Americans have more rights than citizens of any other country. But people in this country have forgotten that with rights come responsibilities. And as far as I can see, nobody has the right to come to America and begin preaching that America needs to be destroyed. You may have the privilege to do so, but priviliges can be revoked. And in the case of terrorist supporters, they should be.

Kick 'em the hell out.

Are you kidding me?

So, a highschool teacher has sex with a sixteen year old boy, and now that she's in trouble for it she tries to play the victim card.

ALBANY, N.Y. — The lawyer for a Catholic-school teacher who allegedly had sex with students said Wednesday it was the teacher who was victimized and "taken advantage of."

"It's possible her contact with the 16-year-old wasn't consensual," lawyer Donald Kinsella told The Post yesterday, noting the teacher's battle with alcoholism.

In his most expansive comments since Sandra "Beth" Geisel surrendered Monday, Kinsella hinted a 16-year-old boy who authorities said slept with her might have forced sex on her or coerced her. "It's possible that the 16-year-old may have some criminal responsibility in connection with this matter," Kinsella told Albany radio station WROW-AM.


I'm stunned. How in the hell can a 16 year old force sex on a teacher? Just how in the hell is that possible? Anyone? Beuller? Beuller? I guess the three seventeen year old students "forced" sex on her as well? This woman was sleeping with quite a few students!

What a steaming crock of excretement. This woman got her jollies, got busted, and now is trying to wiggle out of the punishment.

It's what puts the 'Jizz' in al Jizzeera

I came across this article recently and was a tad disturbed. This is probably every Islamofascist's wet dream.
"It is as if Bin Laden started by scheduling 'American Hiroshima' for 8-6-2005 and then worked backwards to arrive at 9-11-2001 as the precursor," [Matuszak] speculates.
...
According to captured al-Qaida leaders and documents, bin Laden's terrorist network has a plan called "American Hiroshima" involving the multiple detonation of nuclear weapons already smuggled into the U.S. ... Al-Qaida has obtained at least 40 nuclear weapons from the former Soviet Union – including suitcase nukes...
I don't know the veracity of their information, but I've heard similar claims before. It's what al Qaeda members say when they're interrogated.

Then I turned on the tv today and saw Zawahiri's face. What'd he say? Nothing. Just the usual "We're gonna kill you and it's all your fault" bullshit. (His "blame the victim" attitude sounds so familiar... did Zawahiri go to journalism school?) But why has he chosen now to climb out from under his rock? The timing seems quite convenient to me. I think al Jizzeera held on to this tape until today, the day before a key date to the terrorists: the 60th anniversary of the dropping of "Little Boy" on Hiroshima. (I know, the bomb was dropped on August 6th, but it is already August 5th in Japan, so tomorrow is the anniversary.) The last video from the terrible butt-buddies (Zarwahiri and bin Laden) was last October, just before the presidential elections, remember? Bin Laden told us he would only kill people who voted for Bush (red states). Do I actually believe that al Qaeda bought suitcase nukes from former Soviet special agents and smuggled them across the Mexican border with the help of MS-13 and is right now ready to set them off in dozens of US cities this weekend? Um, no. I think it is more likely that they would try to poison our water supply but what do I know...?

Remember that debate a couple weeks ago about Cogressman Tancredo's response to a question on a radio show:
Campbell: Worst case scenario, if they do have these nukes inside the border, what would our response be?"

Tancredo: "There are things you could threaten to do before something like that happens, and then you have to do afterwards, that are quite draconian."

"Well," Tancredo continued, "what if you said something like, 'If this happens in the United States and we determine that it is the result of extremist, fundamentalist Muslims, you could take out their holy sites.'"

Campbell: "You're talking about bombing Mecca?"

Tancredo: "Yeah. What if you said, we recognize that this is the ultimate threat to the United States, therefore this is the ultimate response."
For his answer, Tancredo was criticized from all sides. But think about it. What would be the response to a bunch of nukes going off in American cities? Just think about that phrase: "holy sites." You know what? New York is every bit as holy as Mecca. Denver is just as holy as Medina. Every city in America is "holy." Podunk, Arkansas is holy. If we're considering worst case scenarios, then would we continue to fight with one arm tied behind our back even if our cities were incinerated and millions of our people murdered? No. I don't think so. How do I put this in human terms: If someone kills my son and is threatening to kill my daughter, and you're standing between me and my enemy, defending him, then you're just as dead as he is.

Bomb Mecca? Medina? "The nature of the terrorist threat is unambiguously Islamic and is not so much a deviation from Muslim tradition as an appeal to it." I don't think the option should be completely off the table, but there may be better options. Tehran? Damascus? They're either allies or enemies. (And they're definately not allies.) One thing is for sure. America will not just roll over and die. If you kill us, we will kill you back.

It's time somebody on our side started thinking about worst case scenarios, because that's what the terrorists are thinking about. A wall across the Mexican and Canadian borders would help, too.

Air America Hires Dan Rather as Scandal Spokesman

Satire from ScrappleFace:
Mr. Rather said he looks forward to "telling the true story" about the Air America executive who borrowed $800,000 from a Bronx, New York, agency which normally helps children and Alzheimer's patients.

"On the surface, I'll grant you, these charges look bad," said Mr. Rather. "But is there really that much difference between helping little children and helping the staff of Air America? And is it really malfeasance to take money intended for people who can't remember anything, and give it to a liberal radio network?"
Funny because it's true.

Maybe instead of stealing money from poor little orphans and sick old people, Air America could try a telethon. Nah. It'd never work.

Hugo Chavez Channels Nancy Pelosi

(Via Daily Thoughts.) Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said U.S. congressmen approved CAFTA only because President Bush bribed and blackmailed them into it, and said "he knows that from reports he’s read, but wouldn’t say where he read them."
I think we know where he's getting his information:
Q You’re saying that — that Republicans were trying to bribe Democrats?

REP. PELOSI: I didn’t use the word bribe.

Q Well, you said it wasn’t legal.

REP. PELOSI: I said that offers were made that were, in my view, questionable. And I know that they would be at a cost to the taxpayers. And I say that without any hesitation.

Q But that’s a very serious charge.

REP. PELOSI: It is.

Q Could you just — could you just give us the specifics of what you’ve heard?

REP. PELOSI: No...
First we had al Jizzeera showcasing U.S. Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D) comparing our military to Nazis, and now we have Castro wannabe Hugo Chavez mimicking U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D) as she accuses our President of bribing and blackmailing congressmen. Way to go, moonbats! Keep it up! Nothing says "Patriot" like stabbing your country in the back. Again. And again. And again.

Iraqi Public Opinion

One would think that Iraqi public opinion would be newsworthy in the U.S. particularly since we have invested so much blood and treasure in Iraq. Here we find a comprehensive survey of Iraqi public opinion (in PowerPoint slides). Funny. I must have missed it when all the mainstream news outlets reported this very interesting and relevant information. Hmmm..... Why do you suppose the MSM wouldn't want to talk about this? .... Anyone?

New California

Mean Ol' Meany fisks a moonbat letter writer in "The Country of New California." Go read it - it's hilarious. I would just add that if the country of "New California" consisted of only blue counties, rather than blue states, then New California would have no food. Also, including the state of California as a "blue state" greatly biases thoses economic figures (technology, fruit/produce, wine, etc. - California on its own would be the fifth largest economy in the world), but California itself is just one earthquake away from becoming a red state (i.e., almost all of the counties in California east of the San Andreas fault are red).

From Kim du Toit

We have a "No shit" and an "Oh shit".

First, the "No shit".

I heard on Fox News that the NY Transit Authority is going to be searching the handluggage of one in every five passengers on their subway system.

Please, someone tell me this isn’t true.

On the show, Fox had as a guest a security consultant (ex-Israeli security), and he was almost beside himself with frustration at the NYTA approach. Of course you should target young Mediterranean men, he said emphatically; that’s where the danger lies. And he added: without profiling, the job is imnpossible.


The reason I think that America can and will suffer another terrorist attack is because the fear-everything, PC crowd will not let us defend ourselves. They're afraid of offending anyone. They still haven't figured it out.

We're not under attack by hordes of blue-eyed, blonde haired Norweigiens. We're not in danger of a terrorist attack by Irish lasses with bomb belts. We're under attack by Islamic men, between the ages of 18 and 40, who have recently been to the Middle East.

That narrows the pool down quite a bit, don't you think? And yet we're STILL wasting our fucking time searching Mrs. Brontsky, an 80 year old grandmother from fucking Minnasota. We're STILL wasting our time doing retarded shit like stopping a former vice president and trying to take away a fucking MEDAL OF HONOR from Joe Foss when he was on the way to give a speech.

What kind of crap is that? You're telling me that random searches are supposed to keep us safe? Bullshit.

And for the "Oh shit"? Read this:

A renegade band of Mexican military deserters, offering $50,000 bounties for the assassination of U.S. law-enforcement officers, has expanded its base of operations into the United States to protect loads of cocaine and marijuana being brought into America by Mexican smugglers, authorities said.

The deserters, known as the “Zetas,” trained in the United States as an elite force of anti-drug commandos, but have since signed on as mercenaries for Mexican narcotics traffickers and have recruited an army of followers, many of whom are believed to be operating in Texas, Arizona, California and Florida.


Wake up, President Bush. We have a serious problem on our southern border, and you're still playing nice with MexPres Fox. That cannot work.

If the Minuteman Project people get shot at, and they kill these fucking Mexican terrorists, they should be lauded as heroes. If the government gets involved and starts taking the Minutemen down, I know where my loyalties lie. And it's not with the Government. I know that I'm not alone in this. Perhaps the feds should take note of where the country stands, or more importantly, who we stand with.

If you need punditry re: PlameGate...

...Tom Maguire is the one to give it to you. Sometimes his blog gets a bit long-winded, but that's due to the great amount of disinfo that needs to be fisked as well as the intrigue of the whole thing. This is pretty brief, and does a tidy job of pointing out that the key to this is Judith Miller. Who is she protecting? Is it her own self, or perhaps, the Times?

Juan Cole...

...fisked again. These are the kinds of lunacies that are driving some socially left-leaning folks away from the Dying Democrat Party.

President Appoints John Bolton as Ambassador to the United Nations

A recess appointment due to the continued filibuster by Senate Democrats. Watch it here. (Isn't it great that we don't have to rely on tv for raw news footage anymore?) Clinton made 140 recess appointments but Bush makes one and its "devious" and "shameless" according to people like Senator Edward Kennedy (D). The quote of the day however has to be from Frank Lautenberg, himself the beneficiary of a "recess appointment" when the (un)Democratic Party in New Jersey dumped Torricelli amid accusations of ethical impropriety just weeks prior to the 2002 elections and changed candidates in direct violation of New Jersey State election laws:
"It's sad that even while the president preaches democracy around the world, he bends the rules and circumvents the will of Congress in appointing our representative to the United Nations."
This from Lautenberg. What a hypocrite. And for the record, the will of Congress was circumvented when Lautenberg and his demonrat buddies filibustered Bolton not once but twice. I don't know whether Bolton can fix the UN or if it's even worth fixing, but he's making a lot of leftists mad and that's a good start.
