August 8, 1942 German saboteurs executed in Washington

Remember when (D)emocrats had a pair?
6 German saboteurs executed in Washington
Shortly after midnight on the morning of June 13, 1942, four men landed on a beach near Amagansett, Long Island, New York, from a German submarine, clad in German uniforms and bringing ashore enough explosives, primers, and incendiaries to support an expected two-year career in the sabotage of American defense-related production. On June 17, 1942, a similar group landed on Ponte Vedra Beach, near Jacksonville, Florida, equipped for a similar career in industrial disruption.

The purpose of the invasions was to strike a major blow for Germany by bringing the violence of war to our home ground through destruction of America's ability to manufacture vital equipment and supplies and transport them to the battlegrounds of Europe; to strike fear into the American civilian population, and diminish the resolve of the United States to overcome our enemies.

By June 27, 1942, all eight saboteurs had been arrested without having accomplished one act of destruction. Tried before a Military Commission, they were found guilty. One was sentenced to life imprisonment, another to thirty years, and six received the death penalty, which was carried out within a few days.
...
The eight were tried before a Military Commission, comprised of seven U.S. Army officers appointed by President Roosevelt, from July 8, to August 4, 1942.

Constrast that to Sweetness & Light's observation:
Bin Laden Driver Gets Slap On The Wrist
Did he also apologize to the 3,000 people murdered on 9/11 for helping Bin Laden to elude capture?

Do you really think the obscene pressure put upon the system by our partisan MainStreamMedia and the Leftist (D)emocrat apologists for terrorism isn't having an impact?

House Hunting Redoux

Grrrrrrr..... just when you think things are settled, reality comes up and bites you square in the ass. But, me and the Mrs. are somewhat resourceful so we're not sitting around crying about it. It looks like we're going to be buying a house despite not wanting to do so. We'll see what happens. In the meantime, internet connectivity is going to continue to be intermittent since without having a permanent house we can't get our household goods. No household goods, no router. We're looking for other internet options. If we manage to get hooked up you'll be the first to know.

Too Much Government

I found this RCOB piece while checking C&S. Good god, if anyone ever needed proof that the government had grown to damn big, this is it. And as S.H. Long says:

"It's a civic responsibility for every U.S. citizen to read this so they can't later claim, "We had no idea the smoke was from those ovens."


Innocent people following the law getting tossed into prison due to some black-robed petty tyrant? Gosh, that couldn't happen in America, could it? IT HAS HAPPENED. IT IS HAPPENING. Out of control government agencies. Judicial activism at it's worst. And a man going to jail because he followed the laws and did what he was told to do by the county he lives in and the US Corps of Engineers. Tell me that it wouldn't be appropriate to bring out the tar and feathers and march on D.C. It's well PAST that point. The parasitic bastards should have been tarred and feathered years ago.

Mike Gravel(D) defends a terrorist with terrorism

A convicted terrorist no less... and Steve Emerson has the audio
...urged people to stalk a federal prosecutor and his family in order to get criminal contempt charges dropped against Sami Al-Arian...
"Find out where he lives. Find out where his office is. If you've got some chutzpah - which is a word that you don't hear often - if you've really got it, find out where he lives, find out where his kids go to school, find out where his office is; picket him all the time. Call him a racist in signs if you see him. Call him an injustice. Call him whatever you want to call him, but in his face all the time. They can't take the heat; deliver it to them. We have to stop laying down to these injustices."
...Al-Arian pled guilty in 2006 to conspiring to provide goods and services to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). His 2005 trial ended with eight acquittals and a deadlocked jury on nine other counts, including racketeering conspiracy. He has argued that his plea agreement ruled out what he considers cooperation with any government investigations. But Kromberg has argued that a grand jury subpoena is not cooperation, but rather it is a compelled statement. When Al-Arian refused to testify despite a grant of immunity, he was subject to civil contempt orders that extended his incarceration for months.

Mike Gravel(D) is not just willing to defend a terrorist but is in fact threatening children of public servants tasked with bringing that terrorist to justice. A vomitous coward demonstrating exactly the tactics we've seen his party adopt repeatedly to veil the threat to innocents.

I hope Mike Gravel(D), gets exactly that which he wishes upon children. Better yet... grant him the fate he would allow Sami Al-Arian's fellow terrorists to visit upon children.

I think we have a house

to rent, anyways. The least gets signed on Monday if all goes well. But DAMN there's a lot of work to do before we can live in it. We managed to negotiate the rent down a considerable amount because of that fact. Of course, that leaves the Ragin' Mrs. and I up to our eyeballs in house repair the moment we sign for it, but it'll be worth it. The house is huge, all wooden floors (a plus for an allergy sufferer like my dear wife) and flat out beautiful. Some of the wood work makes me just drool. The damage done to that wood work makes me cry, but that's why I'm going to be repairing it.

So if all goes well, I should have a house with internet access sometime around the 11th. WOO HOO!

Incommunicado

Well, transient housing said they had wireless internet in their place. Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Ah, well. I'm sitting in La Crosse right now at a coffee shop checking my email. I won't have the 'net for a while longer, so expect intermittent postings until I'm set up in a casa of my own.
