The 800 Pound Guerrilla

The AP released a story today about how certain newspapers were up in circulation, and others were down, some quite dramatically. I can't help but notice (where they ignored) that the papers that are down in circulation (again) are considered liberal-leaning, and the the ones that are up are considered centrist or conservative-leaning. This trend not limited to newspapers, mind you, and is the primary reason that Dem's want to bring back the "fairness doctrine." The list:

1. USA Today, 2,278,022, up 0.2 percent
2. The Wall Street Journal, 2,062,312, up 0.6 percent
3. The New York Times, 1,120,420, down 1.9 percent
4. Los Angeles Times, 815,723, down 4.2 percent
5. New York Post, 724,748, up 7.6 percent
6. New York DailyNews, 718,174, up 1.4 percent
7. The Washington Post, 699,130, down 3.5 percent
8. Chicago Tribune, 566,827, down 2.1 percent
9. Houston Chronicle, 503,114, down 2 percent
10. The Arizona Republic, 433,731, down 1.1 percent
11. Dallas Morning News, 411,919, down 14.3 percent
12. Newsday, Long Island, 398,231, down 6.9 percent
13. San Francisco Chronicle, 386,564, down 2.9 percent
14. The Boston Globe, 382,503, down 3.7 percent
15. The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J., 372,629, down 6.1 percent
16. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 357,399, down 2.1 percent
17. The Philadelphia Inquirer, 352,593, up 0.6 percent
18. Star Tribune of Minneapolis-St. Paul, 345,252, down 4.9 percent
19. The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, 344,704, up 0.5 percent
20. Detroit Free Press, 329,989, down 4.7 percent
I keep saying it... the people of America are TIRED of liberalism being shoved down their throats, and this trend WILL continue.

Global Warming- A Convenient Fiction

This guy pretty much sums up my feelings on the issue. My problem is not with the basic science, but how it is distorted and exaggerated by the MSM and politicians on the left to further their political agenda. On a side note, doesn't "carbon offsets" seem a lot like the Indulgences of the Catholic Church? Somebody else may have made that observation, but I have not read it anywhere.

The Islamization Of The U.K. Continues

British courts to allow veils during trials:
The guidance has been drawn up by senior judges on the Judicial Studies Board’s Equal Treatment Advisory Committee. It said: “There is room for diversity and there should be willingness to accommodate different practices and approaches to religious and cultural observance.”

It added: “While there may be a diversity of opinions and debates between Muslims about the nature of dress required, for the judicial system the starting point should be respect for the choice made, and for each woman to decide on the extent and nature of the dress she adopts.”

Forcing a woman to choose between participating in a court case or removing the veil could have a “significant impact on her sense of dignity”, it added, and could serve to “exclude and marginalise” her.
*Tears dripping off my face* But we have to understannnd and be respectful of their cullllture...

The Religion of Peace™ Pittsburgh: Ayaan Hirsi Ali Should Be Murdered

To the people that still think that Islamic violence is not rooted in the Koran, please note this sort of thing is said by Imams and public figures on a daily basis in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Indonesia, The Philippines, Yemen, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Morocco, Tunisia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Malaysia, Taiwan, Iraq, Turkey, the U.A.E., etc. I am not even going to mention the doomed European nations where you can hear something like this on any given Friday in most Mosques.

Furor over author Ayaan Hirsi Ali's visit stirs debate on religious freedom:

Islamic leaders tried to block the lecture, which was sponsored through an endowment from the Frank J. and Sylvia T. Pasquerilla Lecture Series. They argued that Hirsi Ali's attacks against the Muslim faith in her book, "Infidel," and movie, "Submission," are "poisonous and unjustified" and create dissension in their community.

Although university officials listened to Islamic leaders' concerns, the lecture planned last year took place Tuesday evening under tight security, with no incidents.

Imam Fouad ElBayly, president of the Johnstown Islamic Center, was among those who objected to Hirsi Ali's appearance.

"She has been identified as one who has defamed the faith. If you come into the faith, you must abide by the laws, and when you decide to defame it deliberately, the sentence is death," said ElBayly, who came to the U.S. from Egypt in 1976.


If you are not familiar with this women, she is the author of Infidel, and also wrote the script to Submission, a short that was produced and directed by the late Theo Van Gogh, and is a former MP in the Netherlands, whom came to the United States to seek protection from the radical Muslims that were hunting her.

Interview Me

I usually don't participate in these things, but this one is pretty fun. I received these questions from Ordinary Girl. See below if you want in (you probably don't want me to ask you any questions, however.)

What song do you like playing the most on guitar and why?

That would be Over the Hills and Far Away by… Well if you don’t know who wrote that, you’re a moron. Anyway wanting to be able to play that song was the reason I started playing in the first place. Too bad I could never quite get it down.

If you were dictator.. er, president, what would your first action be and why?

Well that’s a tough one. First I would instruct KBR (Halliburton) to continue building the detention camps they were contracted to construct after 9/11, because after I declare martial law (2nd action), we are going to need some place to put illegal aliens, Muslims, Liberals, Democrats, Liberal Democrats, and anybody else I can think of. Just kidding, I think my first action would be to give my inauguration speech as I believe that is what is traditional after you are sworn in.

What do you think your life will be like in 20 years?
Well since I doubt I will be elected president after what I just wrote, I’m sure I will live in some totalitarian regime, probably in some ultra-PC dystopia such as described in Fahrenheit 451. That or living under shari’a law, having the sword of Mecca hanging over my neck.

Do you have any genuine aversions or phobias?
Oh yeah, I hate crowds. And lines. If a drive-through has more than four cars ahead of me, I will park and go in.

What one person has been the biggest influence in your life and why?

My mother. I’m really glad she decided not to abort me.

If you want to continue, here are the rules:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the
questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else
in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five
questions.

Guns, Guns, Guns!

While the left and right politicize the tragedy at Virginia Tech to advance their respective agendas, there was this little gem: The mayor of Nagasaki, Japan was assassinated by the Yakuza:

OKYO (Reuters) - The mayor of the Japanese city of Nagasaki died early on Wednesday after being shot by a man police said was a member of a criminal syndicate, public broadcaster NHK reported.

Itcho Ito, 61, seeking re-election for a fourth term in Sunday's election, was shot at least twice in the back by the man in front of his campaign office just before 8:00 p.m. (1100 GMT) on Tuesday, officials had said.

Japan has very strict gun control laws and illegal firearms are mostly in the hands of "yakuza" gangsters or registered hunters.
Like the VA Tech campus, the people of Japan are not allowed to carry guns, but that’s not what was interesting about this article from Reuters. Please direct your attention to the last paragraph for your weekly dose of liberal anti-American media bias:

Nagasaki, on the southernmost main island of Kyushu, was the second city to suffer an atomic bombing by the United States on August 9, 1945.
Oh, you mean the atomic bomb that Nagasaki “suffered” because the evil Americans wanted to incinerate brown-people? Or do you mean the atomic bombs that ended the bloodiest war in History and that ultimately saved millions of lives, and would never have been dropped in the first place if the Japanese hadn't Killed 3000 people in Pearl Harbor and instigated the resulting war with the United States that cost over 200,000 American lives. Yes, we dropped the Ultimate Weapon on the suicidal maniacs that had stated they would fight to the last man and never surrender, whom had started a war of conquest in 1937 that resulted in deaths of over 20 million Chinese and several million others in the South Pacific. The Japanese were direct cause of the rise of Mao, whom killed an additional 60 Million, not to mention North Korea and the rise of Kim-Il-sung… wow there’s about 4 million more deaths we can lay directly at the feet of Tojo and the people that “suffered” our nuclear strikes. This could go on for another several paragraphs, but I think you get the idea.

The Religion of Peace™: 80 Lashes For Rape Victims

A PAKISTANI man faces death by stoning in the United Arab Emirates for committing adultery with four of his stepdaughters.

In the first case of its kind in the UAE, the Federal Supreme Court confirmed the death sentence issued by an Islamic sharia court in the emirate of Ajman, the English-language Gulf News reported.

Police arrested the man, identified only as Abdul Aziz, in 2005 after his youngest and fifth stepdaughter reported the case when he refused to let her marry a local man, it said.

The man, who had 11 children from illicit relationships with his four stepdaughters, admitted his guilt but said he was the father of only some of the children, Gulf News said.

The four stepdaughters had been sentenced and received 80 lashes each, it added.

Like most Arab states, the UAE implements Islamic sharia laws, but rarely executes convicted criminals.

Pfft, these nappy headed ho's got off easy. According to the Qur'an 24:2, they should have got 100 lashes. And the right-wing wants to call Muslims intolerant and barbaric.

AQ Calls For The Re-Conquest Of Spain

Madrid-The emergence of a new al-Qaeda-linked organization in Northern Africa is alarming Spain, which is concerned about Islamists' calls for the reconquest of the country they regard as a lost part of the Muslim world.

"We will not be in peace until we set our foot again in our
beloved al-Andalus," al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb said on claiming responsibility or an attack which killed at least 24 people in Algiers on Wednesday.

Al-Andalus is the Moorish name for Spain, parts of which were ruled by Muslims for about eight centuries until the last Moorish bastion, Granada, succumbed to the Christian Reconquest in 1492.

It was called "American Adventure" and the toppings were Peperoni, beef, and corn. This is the American adventure I guess... they had other ones for other places, Tokyo, Itialian etc. but most had corn on them. They put corn on everything...seems like each time I come here, corn is going on more and more things. The other funny one was called like From the Farm, and it had corn, ham and crab sticks.

Pelosi In Syria

There was quite the hubbub this week when pictures were released of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wearing a hijab while visiting the Omayad Mosque in Syria.



On The Savage Nation Monday, Mike shocked many listeners when he came out in support of Pelosi's trip, saying if some good came of this, than she is doing more to better U.S. relations with Muslim countries than the White House, where they unilaterally condemned the mission (which included three Republicans). Savage called her courageous for making the sign of the cross in front of the tomb where the Muslims keep the head of John the Baptist, the most important man in Christianity behind Jesus himself. Several callers expressed their dismay to Mike, one even accusing him of being a Communist for supporting the trip. Mike went on to speculate that the White House probably tacitly if not actively endorsed the trip in private, while condemning it publicly to save face-I will return to this later.

I agree with Savage that if something good can come of this mission, more power to her. However, I felt that he missed on (or ignored) a couple of important points.

First, to call her “courageous” for making the sign of the cross inside a Mosque is disingenuous on his part, because Speaker Pelosi is the third most powerful person in the government of the most powerful nation on the face of the Earth, and an accredited diplomat with immunity. She could have walked in to that Mosque, pulled out a Koran and took a dump on it and all that would have happened was that she would have been declared persona non grata, and kicked out of the country.

Second, she wore a hijab, not a “headscarf”. Granted they probably would not have let her enter the Mosque without one, but she decided to don the Muslim symbol of misogyny and the oppression of women. The great liberal feminist from San Francisco willingly wore the hijab, and therefore tacitly supported the Muslim oppression of women. This would be no different than an American diplomat strapping on a swastika arm-band before attending a rally at the Reichstag in 1939.

A story today from the AP said that Syria was “instrumental” in negotiating the release of the British sailors and Marines. The implication is that Pelosi was in part responsible:
DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) -- Syria played a key role in resolving the standoff over the 15 British sailors and marines held by Iran, two government officials said Wednesday. “Syrian efforts and the Iranian willingness culminated with the release of the British sailors," said Information Minister Mohsen Bilal.

He said Syria had been asked "to help positively in the issue of British" crew members since their March 23 seizure by Iran in the Persian Gulf. He did not elaborate. Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem told reporters that "Syria exercised a sort of quiet diplomacy to solve this problem and encourage dialogue" between Britain and Iran.

Al-Moallem, who also did not give any details on the Syrian mediation, spoke at Damascus international airport before the departure of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for Saudi Arabia.
I think that releasing the hostages is likely a political move on Iran’s part, and a brilliant one at that when you think about it, especially in an Islamic context. While the Syrian officials quoted do not state that Pelosi-a woman-negotiated the release, it is clearly implied. This makes Bush look weak, and it makes the U.K. look even weaker, especially in the eyes of Muslims. This also makes Ahmadinejad look just and compassionate for releasing the Brits, whom "invaded” Iranian waters to “spy”. There seems to be little coverage of Iran's nuclear program or U.N. sanctions this week, because of this story. Mahmoud may be fanatic, but he isn’t stupid.

Earlier I mentioned Savage said that the White House may have supported this mission in private. This story came out yesterday:

While U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's upcoming visit to Syria has caused the White House to bristle, a little-publicized rendezvous took place Sunday between Syria's president and Lancaster County's congressman. And though Bush administration officials have been criticizing Pelosi, it's not clear what role the White House and the U.S. Department of State played when U.S. Rep. Joe Pitts and two other Republican congressmen met with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Pitts is a Chester County Republican who represents Lancaster County. Gabe Neville, Pitts' chief of staff, said Monday the conference between Assad and the three Republicans was intended to be "low profile." "It was done in cooperation with the administration," he said.

However, White House spokesman Alex Conant said Monday the Bush administration — as a blanket policy — "discourages all of (Congress') visits" to Syria, a country believed by the White House to sponsor terrorism.
Huh. I think either way Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his puppet Syria win the gold medal for this round. The next question I have to ask is if Iran knew about Pelosi’s trip before the Brits were captured? If so that would seem to indicate a security leak in the State Department or White House. Just a thought.

Religion of Peace™ Atrocity De Jour

An Iraqi Christian mom’s toddler is kidnapped by Muslim “militants” for ransom, and when the mother can’t pay the money, she receives the kids head back, roasted, on a bed of rice:

Iraq’s Assyrian Christians face extinction four years after the toppling of Saddam, says Ed West

“When they cook a dish in the Middle East, it is traditional to put the meat on top of the rice when they serve it. They kidnapped a woman’s baby in Baghdad, a toddler, and because the mother was unable to pay the ransom, they returned her child – beheaded, roasted and served on a mound of rice.” The infant’s crime was to be an Assyrian, but this story, reported by the Barnabus Fund, went unnoticed in the West, like so many other horrific accounts of Christian persecution in Iraq.

Since the invasion of Iraq, Muslim militants have bombed 28 churches and murdered hundreds of Christians. Last October, Islamists beheaded a priest in Mosul in revenge for the Pope’s remarks about Islam at Regensburg. But never let it be said that jihadis do not have a sense of ironic humour: that same month they crucified a 14-year-old Christian boy in Basra.


The MSM won’t report things like this because they are afraid of Muslims, but more on point, since all religions and cultures are equal in their eyes, they CAN’T report it because it might make Islam “look bad”. Here is something else that makes Muslims look bad:
