So Much For 'Ending The Culture Of Corruption' - Part 2

In our previous post today on the culture of corruption in the now Democratically-controlled Congress, we posted on a CNN investigation into how Congress spends taxpayer money, and noted that it did so, "quickly, secretly and by the truckload. Here, CNN looks at more Congressional Democrats and earmarks, concluding: "The democrats promised reform. It's not happening." And "What does congressman Murtha have to say in defense of the "National Drug Intelligence Center" in Pennsylvania? Surprisingly, nothing at all." Says CNN: [A Murtha] Spokesman told us the requests had all been submitted. They are available for review with the committee. Then... ... more

'The Hills Of Rural Virginia Are Alive With The Sound Of Jihad'

So, why isn't anyone listening??? As we have previously written: Jamaat ul-Fuqra, or "community of the impoverished," was formed by Pakistani cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani in New York in 1980. Gilani, who refers to himself as "the sixth Sultan Ul Faqr," has stated his objective is to "purify" Islam through violence. Though primarily based in Lahore, Pakistan, Jamaat ul-Fuqra has operational headquarters in New York and openly recruits through various social service organizations in the U.S., including the prison system. Members live in hamaats or compounds, such as Islamberg, where they agree to abide by the laws of Jamaat... ... more

The Case for Bombing Iran

In his must-read article at Opinion Journal today, Norman Podhoretz presents his case for military force against Iran, and suggests that the plain and brutal truth is that if Iran is to be prevented from developing a nuclear arsenal, there is no alternative to the actual use of military force--any more than there was an alternative to force if Hitler was to be stopped in 1938. In reminding us of recent Iranian disregard for international law and its tendency to use hostages and blackmail, he notes: If, ... under present circumstances Ahmadinejad could bring about the extraordinary degree of kowtowing... ... more

As Abdul posted on extensively last night (in which one report mentions that police sources in the city of Mahmoudia told of the two bodies being found near one of their orchards in the city showing signs of "severe torture"), Jawa Report points today to The MEMRI blog which is carrying the report of rumors posted on Islamist websites that the American forces have discovered the headless bodies of two of the kidnapped American soldiers. The reports stated that the bodies were found on May 18, after six days of searching, and that the search for the third soldier, whose... ... more

Al-Qaeda cells in Catalonia

The announcement by Rodrigo Gavilán, the representant of the most active policemen union, CEP, of the existence of Al-Qaeda cells in Catalonia, is not suprising. But now, not only Mr. Gavilán has spoken about it, but also some responsibles of foreign secret services who are really worried about this phenomenon. According to them, there are two methods of recruiting. The first one happens in areas of Muslim immigration, where individuals pertaining to radical cells approach teenagers and young people with strong problems of marginalization and uprooting. The second one happens on the Internet, where young that has been radicalized by... ... more

Harsh Words for Iran at Mideast Forum - Evil Jooozzz Less Evil?

Not really, nevertheless there's a couple of recent twists. In what's surely only a temporary diversion, it's good to hear the Arabs direct more of their criticism toward Iran than Israel:Washington's Arab allies harshly criticized Iran's growing influence in the Middle East, telling the country's top diplomat at a high-level conference Saturday that it must stay out of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and be more open about its nuclear ambitions. Dominating many discussions at the World Economic Forum was the deadly violence between the Fatah Palestinian faction and Hamas militants, which has helped stall a Saudi Arabian-sponsored plan for peace between... ... more

The "Mahdi Army" is the group of terrorists and fighters assembled by al-Sadr, who has preached Islam's "Madhi" soon is to return, and American forces invaded Iraq in order to capture and kill him. Al-Sadr has refused to disband the estimated 5,000-8,000 in his group because he claims it... ... more

Sarcozy Increases Lead In French Polls As Royal Runs To Islamofascist Playbook

In what LGF refers to as an "Islamist-Leftist convergence," Socialist Ségolène Royal is borrowing from the playbook of her Islamofascist supporters, and warning that if she doesn't win, there will be violence and brutality unleashed in the country," suggesting that unrest was especially likely in the "volatile suburbs" (MSM-speak for the Muslim communities) that were the site of rioting in 2005: PARIS: The French presidential campaign officially closed Friday with the Gaullist front-runner, Nicolas Sarkozy, looking ever more assured of winning Sunday and his Socialist rival, Ségolène Royal, predicting street violence if he is elected. Her warning came after the... ... more

Masters Of The Universe

Pat Santy points to Victor Davis Hanson's "beautiful post on the crazy Middle East" that summarizes all the hysteria and hype that we have endured over the last four years in what amounts to a synopsis of the ongoing insanity about the war against Islamofascism: Polls show about 20% of Americans favor the Palestinians in their war against Israel, while about half the US population now expresses an unease with Muslims in general. Meanwhile a large minority of Muslims, according to polls, condones terrorist attacks on civilians, while a vast majority is vehemently anti-American. Their prejudice apparently is chalked up... ... more

Tell Nancy Pelosi & Congress: America Won't Surrender!

When it came to defeating the Soviets, Ronald Reagan made it simple: "We win, they lose." Now more than ever, the defeatists in Congress must hear that same message. America will never surrender (hat tip - Gateway Pundit).To: Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House Harry Reid, U.S. Senate Democrat Leader Congress has passed and President Bush has vetoed H.R. 1591, the Iraq Surrender Act of 2007. This legislation, which you worked to pass, sets a timetable for surrender. It pulls the rug out from under our troops. That is shameful and wrong. Your actions have already emboldened the enemy. Violent... ... more

Bush Administration EEOC Sues Salvation Army

... Over the Salvation Army's "English-only" policy:The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has over the years been broadly hostile to employer policies requiring that employees speak English on the job, viewing such policies as improperly tending to screen out workers of protected national origin. Federal courts haven't always agreed with the agency's views on the question, however; in a 2003 case the Salvation Army, the venerable religious institution, was upheld in its right to fire a worker who'd refused to speak English when asked to do so by her boss. Now the EEOC has taken the Salvation Army back to... ... more

al-Qaeda Senior Member Of Information Killed By U.S. Military

Chalk up one less kidnapper/murderer/Islamothug on the planet, as the U.S. military reports that the first day of May was the last day of life for Muharib Abdul Latif al-Jubouri (confirmed by DNA tests), the "senior minister of information" for al Qaeda in Iraq, and a key figure in the separate abductions of journalist Jill Carroll, Tom Fox, one of four men from the Chicago-based peace group Christian Peacemaker Teams who was found fatally shot in Baghdad in March of last year, and other foreigners. On the down side, still no word no information to support claims by Iraq's Interior... ... more

The Freeway Meltdown - Just In Case You Missed It

Readers will recall that a tanker exploded on a freeway overpass in the Oakland/Emeryville area in CA on Sunday, April 29th around 4am. The deck collapsed and burned. It was a connecting ramp between I-80 and I-580. This is what 8,600 gallons (which weighs 80,000 pounds) of unleaded gasoline does when it burns. Reports state that the fireball started on the lower deck, and the rising heat of the 3000+ degree fire melted parts of the deck above, causing it to collapse.Although I've previously watched the video of John Gibson destroying "Leftist Loon" Rosie O'Donnell's 9/11 Conspiracy theory about fire... ... more

Telemundo And Univision Pseudo-Journalists / Illegal Immigration Activists Finally Get Put In Their Place!

The video speaks for itself. Yesterday, when the Los Angeles Police department was forced to come in with their Riot Police to disperse a crowd of illegal alien protesters that were throwing rocks and bottles and were turning rowdy, the TV crews of Telemundo and Univision defied the police order and stayed behind, no doubt trying to exploit the explosive situation to film footage they could later use to accuse the police of brutality against the demonstrators, and to advance their illegal immigration cause. In doing so they partly achieved what they set out to do, as they had to... ... more

The Next Step (for 'Egyptian Sandmonkey')

Egyptian Sandmonkey's post at Hyscience has been reposted below in its entirety. It has came to my attention that the reasons of my quitting were not clear for some people, which is probably due to the fact that I didn't exactly elaborate on why I did what I did or what it means. This is an effort to remedy that. This is not me coming back to blogging though: this wasn't me crying wolf or a publicity stunt, so fans and haters, don't raise your hopes up or don't get disappointed, respectively. This is a clarification, more than anything. 1)... ... more

Again, More Pro-Illegal Immigration Protests And Marches In Our Streets

Illegal immigration protests and demonstrations are flooding our streets again, on this May 1st celebration. Of communist origin and on the anniversary of the infamous Mexican flag wielding, Ché Guevara sign bearing, insolent "in-our-face," illegal immigration rallies of last year, where millions of arrogant "illegal" aliens flooded our streets "demanding" citizenship with impunity, even as immigration authorities watched-on. On Saturday, a cameraman for the NBC affiliate in Houston, KPRC -TV, flew a Mexican flag from his camera as he covered one of such marches in support of illegal immigration in Houston. Many Americans have been outraged by video clips posted... ... more

NBC Cameraman Flies Mexican Flag At March For Illegal Alien Rights

A cameraman for the NBC affiliate in Houston was captured Saturday on home video sporting a Mexican flag on his camera while covering a rally in the Texas city that supported illegal immigrants, drawing angry shouts from counter-protesters. In the first of two clips a counter-protester with a bull horn can be heard condemning the cameraman's flag, and asks, "Why does Channel 2 News have a Mexican flag on their camera?" :Perhaps the most appalling event of the afternoon was seeing Houston's NBC channel 2 affiliate sporting a Mexican flag on their video camera. Doesn't the news media state that... ... more

Unconfirmed report: Red On Red Action Takes Down Leader Of al-Qaeda In Iraq

If this report turns out to be true, another murderous thug is now looking around down in hell for his non-existent 72 virgins, and more importantly, the manner in which the Islamist leader has been killed is a very promising sign - "red on red" fighting: Al-Qaeda in Iraq leader 'killed': The interior ministry in Iraq says it has received intelligence that the head of al-Qaeda in Iraq has been killed. Abu Ayyub al-Masri, believed to be an Egyptian, has led the group since June 2006 when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed in a US air strike. Al-Qaeda in Iraq... ... more
