There'll Never Be Another Ewe

According to WorldNetDaily, pedophiles in the Netherlands are registering a pedophile political party, the aim of which is to reduce the the legal age of sexual relations from 16 to 12 and to legalize bestiality.

No word yet if the Mayor of San Francisco has begun performing wedding ceremonies.

Liberalism, or the Concept of Original Guilt

I got this piece off of as a letter to the editor regarding an article about Wall Mart. The writer makes such scintillating observations on the nature and attitude of liberalism that I decided to reprint it.


Libs hate Wal-Mart because it is a success, and they are not successes. Or, if they are successes, they're ashamed of it, because they suffer from Original Guilt (even if they are neither Catholic nor Jewish nor Lutheran). And they feel that they are unworthy to succeed if anybody else anywhere else is failing, or even slightly less successful than themselves, even though it is none of their fault.

The unspoken unconscious psychological drama of the left is: I don't know what I did, exactly, but mea culpa, mea culpa, mea culpa. And so are you!

Naturally, they project their Original Guilt onto everybody else. Anybody who is more successful than anyone else has committed the Liberal Mortal Sin of Unegalitarianism.

How Bad is Iraq?

From Power Line:

How Bad Is Iraq?
The conventional wisdom is that Iraq is a quagmire at best and a disaster at worst. The claim that we have already lost the war is commonly made these days, and I think it's safe to say that most Democrats, and many other Americans, believe that we should get out of Iraq as soon as possible because our effort there has been a failure. Polls show that most Americans now believe that the Iraq war was not worth the cost, largely, no doubt, because of news reports suggesting that both we and the Iraqis are incurring extraordinarily high numbers of casualties.

Gateway Pundit has pulled together data from a number of sources that suggest that the conventional view is far too pessimistic--indeed, that most Americans' view of Iraq is so distorted as to be unrecognizable. Among other things, Jim notes that the violent death rate in Iraq is lower than that in a number of American cities, including Washington, D.C. And, while the terrorists have killed far too many innocent Iraqis, civilian deaths in Iraq from 2003 to the present are only one-sixth the civilian deaths in Iraq during the period from 1988 to 1991. (So much for being "better off under Saddam.")

I would add a few more facts. I think that Americans' weariness with Iraq is driven primarily by near-daily news reports of American soldiers and Marines being killed and wounded there. Of course, we mourn every death of an American serviceman or woman. But those losses need to be put in some kind of context; otherwise, since fighting any war inevitably involves casualties, military action of any kind is impossible.

A total of 2,471 servicemembers have died in Iraq from 2003 to the present, a period of a little over three years. That total is almost exactly one third of the number of military personnel who died on active duty from 1980 to 1982, a comparable time period when no wars were being fought. Until very recently, our armed forces lost servicemen at a greater rate than we have experienced in Iraq, due solely to accidental death.

Do you recall that during the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s there was any suggestion, from anyone, that our military policies were somehow disastrous due to fatalities among our servicemen--fatalities that nearly always exceeded those we are now experiencing in Iraq? No, neither do I.
So, is Iraq a disaster? There is little or no objective evidence to support that claim, but any claim, made often enough, will gain acceptance if the basic data that contradict it are never mentioned.

Remembering my Uncle Theo

Uncle Theo, my father's younger brother, was my favorite uncle growing up. He owned a couple of bars in Dallas where he would give me all the free potato chips I wanted. But more than that, he was just plain interesting. He had been a soldier in the great World War II, which wasn't all that far in the past when I was a child.

Uncle Theo had served with General Patton in North Africa and Sicily as a medic with the Second Armored Division ("Hell on Wheels") and later took part in the invasion of Normandy, France, where he waded ashore on D-Day+1.

Once when my brother and I stayed with him, he showed us the bullet scars in his neck and back and told us stories of skies lit up with tracers, flaming planes falling from the sky, and German soldiers killed or captured. But we were really too young to understand that war wasn't like in the movies. It was nasty business.

There is a famous Life Magazine photograph that shows several dead American soldiers lying on Omaha Beach, with a medic crouched over them. The medic was Uncle Theo.

Uncle Theo won both the Silver Star and the Bronze Star in France, and finally the Purple Heart which sent him home, causing him to miss the Battle of the Bulge. Years later, after Uncle Theo had joined his comrades on the other side, we received some of his belongings. They included a black Nazi helmet, with an emblem of an eagle sitting on a swastika; several German medals and wallets, complete with German family photographs and regiment photographs, and identification papers; three rifle bullets, one of which was loaded with a wooden bullet painted red; and German and French money. I still have most of these artifacts, carefully preserved. But the ones I treasure the most are the typed pages, brown with age, from the U.S. Command that describes my uncle's heroic exploits that earned him his medals. Here is the one for the Silver Star:

Headquarters of the 2nd Armored Division

Office of the Division Commander, 7 September 1944

The Silver Star medal is awared to Private First Class Theo Chomper


At approximately 0800, 29 July, 1944, a huge German armored column engaged Pfc Chomper's company in battle. Courageously disregarding enemy and friendly artillery, mortar and small arms fire, Pfc Chomper gave medical aid to wounded of his platoon and an attached tank platoon. He remained at the task alone until help arrived, then aided with the evacuation of the wounded. Pfc Chomper is credited with saving many lives with his prompt aid during the heat of battle.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers,
Washington, D.C.
The Inscription Reads:
"Here Rests in Honored Glory an American Soldier Known But to God"
A Vietnam Veteran pays his respects to
his fallen comrades in arms at the Vietnam War Memorial Wall, Washington, D.C.

The Bivouac Of The Dead
By Theodore O'Hara
(Written in memory of the Kentucky troops killed in the Mexican War - 1847)
Portions of this haunting poem are inscribed throughout Arlington, and I have found it quoted on the tombstones of Confederate dead in Richmond, Virginia. A bivouac is an encampment.

The muffled drum's sad roll has beat
The soldier's last tattoo;
No more on Life's parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few.
On fame's eternal camping ground
Their silent tents to spread,
And glory guards, with solemn round
The bivouac of the dead.
No rumor of the foe's advance
Now swells upon the wind;
Nor troubled thought at midnight haunts
Of loved ones left behind;
No vision of the morrow's strife
The warrior's dreams alarms;
No braying horn or screaming fife
At dawn shall call to arms.
Their shriveled swords are red with rust,
Their plumed heads are bowed,
Their haughty banner, trailed in dust,
Is now their martial shroud.
And plenteous funeral tears have washed
The red stains from each brow,
And the proud forms, by battle gashed
Are free from anguish now.
The neighing troop, the flashing blade,
The bugle's stirring blast,
The charge, the dreadful cannonade,
The din and shout, are past;
Nor war's wild note, nor glory's peal
Shall thrill with fierce delight
Those breasts that nevermore may feel
The rapture of the fight.
Like the fierce Northern hurricane
That sweeps the great plateau,
Flushed with triumph, yet to gain,
Come down the serried foe,
Who heard the thunder of the fray
Break o'er the field beneath,
Knew the watchword of the day
Was "Victory or death!"
Long had the doubtful conflict raged
O'er all that stricken plain,
For never fiercer fight had waged
The vengeful blood of Spain;
And still the storm of battle blew,
Still swelled the glory tide;
Not long, our stout old Chieftain knew,
Such odds his strength could bide.
Twas in that hour his stern command
Called to a martyr's grave
The flower of his beloved land,
The nation's flag to save.
By rivers of their father's gore
His first-born laurels grew,
And well he deemed the sons would pour
Their lives for glory too.
For many a mother's breath has swept
O'er Angostura's plain --
And long the pitying sky has wept
Above its moldered slain.
The raven's scream, or eagle's flight,
Or shepherd's pensive lay,
Alone awakes each sullen height
That frowned o'er that dread fray.
Sons of the Dark and Bloody Ground
Ye must not slumber there,
Where stranger steps and tongues resound
Along the heedless air.
Your own proud land's heroic soil
Shall be your fitter grave;
She claims from war his richest spoil --
The ashes of her brave.
Thus 'neath their parent turf they rest,
Far from the gory field,
Borne to a Spartan mother's breast
On many a bloody shield;
The sunshine of their native sky
Smiles sadly on them here,
And kindred eyes and hearts watch by
The heroes sepulcher.
Rest on embalmed and sainted dead!
Dear as the blood ye gave;
No impious footstep here shall tread
The herbage of your grave;
Nor shall your glory be forgot
While Fame her record keeps,
For honor points the hallowed spot
Where valor proudly sleeps.
Yon marble minstrel's voiceless stone
In deathless song shall tell,
When many a vanquished ago has flown,
The story how ye fell;
Nor wreck, nor change, nor winter's blight,
Nor time's remorseless doom,
Can dim one ray of glory's light
That gilds your deathless tomb.

John F Kerry Tries to Redeem Himself

The New York Times has run an article in which John F. Kerry, Senator from Massachusetts and failed Democrat presidential nominee, attempts to refute the Swift Boat Vets. The Swift Boat Vets, as you may recall, opposed Kerry's presidential bid and released a book about Kerry's exploits in Vietnam titled "Unfit for Command." Now, almost two years after losing the election, Kerry and his promoters at the New York Times are trying to redeem his military reputation. For what reason isn't clear: are they setting Kerry up for another run at the presidency?

At the time "Unfit for Command" was released, Kerry did not attempt to refute it, but his operatives tried to shut it up, first by ignoring it, then by claiming it had been "discredited" (but they didn't say by whom or to whose satisfaction). Kerry consistently refused to release ALL of his military records, which would have shed a great deal of light on the facts.

Kerry's claims and awards that were discredited by the Swift Boat Vets are these:

1. Kerry's first Purple Heart.
Kerry's wound was self-inflicted when Kerry fired a grenade launcher into some rocks along the river, resulting in a piece of shrapnel lodging itself in his arm -- a situation that would not justify a Purple Heart. The medic who removed the metal said it was tiny and that he covered it with a bandaid. Kerry's commander refused to recommend a Purple Heart for the wound, but Kerry somehow came up with one anyway. The Swift Boat Vets say Kerry wrote his own medal recommendations and simply lied or greatly exaggerated the facts to get medals he didn't deserve.

Kerry's new "evidence" shows a picture of him rough housing with other Swift Boaters while wearing a bandage on his arm, proof of his injury; however, it doesn't show how the injury was sustained or its degree of severity.

2. Kerry's third Purple Heart (no one has challenged his second Purple Heart).
This was another self-inflicted wound. Kerry dropped a grenade into a bin of rice, then turned away from the explosion, which peppered his buttocks with hundreds of bits of burned rice. His self-written medal recommendation told a completely different story.

3. Kerry's Silver Star.
Kerry shot a wounded Viet Cong soldier who the Vets say was running away. Kerry did nothing wrong in shooting the Cong, but his actions clearly do not rise to the level of a Silver Star. Later, Kerry displayed his Silver Star on his website with a "V" for valor. The V is sometimes attached to medals when the recipient was particularly brave while earning the medal. However, the Silver Star is already "for valor" and the V is never given with a Silver Star. Kerry just faked it, proving irrefutably that he is a blowhard and phony attempting to pass himself off as a "war hero."

Kerry's new "evidence" shows him standing over a man's body who is supposed to be the Cong soldier. The man is laying on his back, indicating that he was killed approaching, not running away. Even if the dead man is the soldier in question, which isn't proven, there is still nothing in Kerry's story that would justify a Silver Star.

4. Kerry's Bronze Star.
Kerry got a Bronze Star for turning his Swift Boat around to pick up a sailor who had fallen off the boat into the water. Kerry claimed this was done while under heavy fire, but the Swift Boat vets claim there was no enemy fire.

5. Kerry's claims of secret missions to Cambodia.
Kerry has made several speeches in the past in which he claimed to have been on secret missions to Cambodia, during a time when Cambodia was officially off limits to the U.S. military. Kerry made these claims to bolster his image of the long-suffering warrior who was made to do illegal things while the U.S. government was pretending innocence. During one of these missions Kerry allegedly received a "lucky hat" that a CIA agent gave him, and which Kerry still carries in his briefcase wherever he goes.

The Swift Boat vets showed Kerry's claims to be bogus, that there were no records showing his boat ever went closer than 50 miles to Cambodia. Kerry's latest "evidence" shows that his boat went much closer than that. However, he still has no evidence to prove his claims of secret missions inside Cambodia.

All of the claims and counter claims can be read at the Democracy Project. The story is further discussed at Power Line.

Freedom Isn't Free: Memorial Day Meditations

Memorial Day is a day for deep reflection on the many men and women who have died to preserve freedom in the world. I have my favorites, generally men who not only faced the horrors of battle but who wrote about it in poetry and prose that, many decades later, continue to inspire and to fill the soul with reverence and respect. Over the next couple of days I will feature some of them here.

The first I will memorialize is Alan Seeger, a young American who served with the French Foreign Legion in World War I. I first learned of Alan Seeger while I was a senior in high school, when I read his most famous poem, "Rendezvous with Death." It made an impression on me that I never forgot.

Seeger graduated from Harvard in 1910, then went to live in Greenwich Village where he wrote poetry for the next two years. He was in France when World War I began and strongly identified with France. Since the United States had not yet joined the war, Seeger joined the French Foreign Legion in order to fight for France.

Two years ago, while working out of a hotel in Bothell, Washington, I looked Seeger up on the internet and found a site that published his diaries and letters of the war. I was immensely impressed by his ability to write, by his intellect, by his prose in describing the war scenes in France and the beauty of the French countryside. After work each night, I came back to the hotel where I found a forlorn spot in a far corner of the hotel parking lot. There, on a concrete barrier, I sat and ate my microwaved burritto, drank my diet coke, smoked my cigar and read Seeger's words. I found it spiritual that this young man, so long dead (he died 90 years ago this summer) could speak to my heart and conscience so poignantly. Seeger, like I (or at least I like to think so) was a searcher for beauty and truth. As I read the last few passages of his diary I felt the magnitude of his loss - he had so much more to give the world than his time here allowed.

Alan Seeger was impressed with the idea of battle, of meeting death face to face. He wrote in a letter about the possibility of his death: "If it must be, let it come in the heat of action. Why flinch? It is by far the noblest form in which death can come. It is in a sense almost a privilege."

Here is his most famous poem.

Rendezvous with Death
by Alan Seeger

I have a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade,
When Spring comes back with rustling shade
And apple-blossoms fill the air--
I have a rendezvous with Death
When Spring brings back blue days and fair.

It may be he shall take my hand
And lead me into his dark land
And close my eyes and quench my breath--
It may be I shall pass him still.
I have a rendezvous with Death
On some scarred slope of battered hill,
When Spring comes round again this year
And the first meadow-flowers appear.

God knows 'twere better to be deep
Pillowed in silk and scented down,
Where love throbs out in blissful sleep,
Pulse nigh to pulse, and breath to breath,
Where hushed awakenings are dear . . .
But I've a rendezvous with Death
At midnight in some flaming town,
When Spring trips north again this year,
And I to my pledged word am true,
I shall not fail that rendezvous.

Indeed, young Seeger did not fail that rendezvous. On July 4, 1916, at Belloy-en-Santerre, he was killed by machine gun fire as his regiment advanced toward the German line.

Leftist Hacker Indicted

  • I received this notice today from ProtestWarrior, a conservative group that stages counter protests against leftwing, communist and pro-jihadi demonstrations.
    Hacker Indicted: In January of last year, the hacker group collectively known as the "Internet Liberation Front" gained illegal access to the ProtestWarrior server, stealing thousands of credit card numbers in order to commit massive credit card fraud. The following month, ProtestWarrior discovered the identity of the perpetrators: Jeremy Hammond and a ring of hackers recruited through his criminal front at ProtestWarrior performed a forensic analysis of the intrusion and contacted the FBI, which immediately launched an investigation. With the collected evidence, the FBI was able to execute a search warrant on Jeremy's residence on March 16, 2005.

    In response, Jeremy launched (since taken offline) where, among other nonsense, he claimed to be a target of political harassment by the FBI. Considering his political motivation for targeting ProtestWarrior, the blatant hypocrisy of his charge resulted in an immediate and sustained public backlash. Within a few months Jeremy took his site down.

    INDICTMENT ISSUED: On May 23, 2006, a grand jury at the U.S. District Court in Illinois handed down an indictment against Jeremy Alexander Hammond for hacking into the ProtestWarrior server. The indictment reads in part, "Between January and February 2005, defendant HAMMOND accessed's server without authority on multiple occasions in an effort to obtain information not otherwise available to him or the general public, specifically credit card numbers, home addresses, and other identifying information of the members and customers of" The specific violation is of Title 18, US Code, Sections 1030 (a)(2)(c) and 2. Per our understanding of the law, Jeremy faces a possible fine and imprisonment for up to 5 years.

    According to a source close to Jeremy, he now lives in an abandoned building.

    COMING SOON: ProtestWarrior will be releasing more details as they become available, including:
  • chat logs between Jeremy and his cohorts' discussing their grand plans for -the stolen credit cards -the PW server -PW's database -previous attack on PW HQ -other conservative sites they planned to attack
  • video of Jeremy at DEFCON boasting of his plans to commit "electronic disobedience" and credit card fraud
  • details of his violent criminal history including his arrest for assaulting a police officer and an arrest for punching his female roommate in the face
  • information on the upcoming trial.

Google's Attack on Conservative News Sites - Alternatives to Google

Newsbusters today has an article titled "Is Google Purging Conservative News Sites?" (Hat tip to Little Green Footballs).

Apparently conservative sites like Michelle Malkin and Little Green Footballs have had difficulty getting picked up by the Google News crawl. More recently, the New Media Journal has been dropped from the news crawl for publishing anti-Islamic articles and opinions. However, New Media Journal is not the first site to be banned. A couple of other sites that posted articles on Islamic terrorism were also dropped for using "hate speech," Google's asinine liberal term that is more appropriate to moonbat university campuses.

This is blatant censorhip based on political beliefs, not on relevant news criteria. Google is attempting to "manage the news" on the internet the way the main stream media did it for years: by refusing to publish news that supported conservative viewpoints, no matter how pertinent.

Google's liberal bias is well known and documented. They have been described as a major ally to the Democratic Party and are a major funder of, the far left website where the hate-America crowd likes to hang out. Read the Newsbusters article for details. However, there is a way to fight back, and that is to use other search engines. This costs Google money!

"Religion of Pieces" (a reader) says that there is a list of politically incorrect search engines at

You can hurt Google where they live, in the pocketbook, by using other search engines. Try the list above for alternatives to Google.

Alex Pareene is a Pimple-Faced Punk

Alex Pareene is a pimple-faced punk who
writes Leftist crap for an airhead blog called "Wonkette," where you have to be invited to contribute opinions. That's because Lefties know that if they allow conservatives on their blogs the liberals will be sliced and diced into very small pieces.

Yesterday the punk in the pic made racist comments about Michelle Malkin, basically calling her an Asian whore who plays with ping pong balls, a reference (I guess) to some kind of anatomical acrobatics certain Asian porn stars perform in night clubs for the entertainment of guys like Alex. You know, the pimply guys with dirty fingernails and stale cigarette breath who can't get a real girl, so they frequent such displays as stimulus for their later encounter with Mr. Hand, the only lover who can't say "no."

Normally I wouldn't bother with a nothing like Alex Pareene or his asinine blog, but it's a slow night.

Hey Alex, if you ever get around to taking a bath, try following it with a haircut, you disgusting little slob.

Moonbat Conspiracy Theories and 9/11

A couple of years ago I spent three months near Seattle, Washington on a consulting assignment. At breakfast I would read the local newspaper the Seattle Times, which I thought was horribly left wing and biased. However, a few times it was sold out so I had to settle for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The Seattle PI made the Times seem like National Review by comparison. It was the most absurdly left-wing rag I have ever had the displeasure of perusing.

This past week the Post-Intelligencer lived up to its reputation as a Moonbat Rag and published a guest opinion by one Richard Curtis, who removed the tinfoil from his head long enough to claim that the Twin Towers were actually destroyed by controlled demolition explosions, not by the Islamic-hijacked airplanes that slammed into them.

Moonbat Curtis writes, "The [9/11] commission's conclusions and recommendations should be totally rejected. Its story is full of lies, distortions and omissions of fact. Following are two of the more than 40 reasons why the official story about what happened on 9/11 is untrue."

He then explains why it was untrue: "Dozens of firefighters and medics reported hearing, seeing and feeling explosives going off in the buildings that collapsed. Why were there explosives, very powerful explosives by all accounts, going off in the buildings? More disturbing, why was the pattern of those explosives identical in some important ways with the pattern used in a planned implosion (or controlled demolition of a building)?"

Finally, before fluttering back out the window towards the moon, Curtis concludes with this: "In spite of Connelly's faith in what commission members say, the report seems to be an obvious cover-up. The question that we all need to ask is: What is the commission covering up? Was 9/11, in fact, an inside job?"

No, you moron, it wasn't. The much photographed and videotaped planes crashing into the Twin Towers probably had a lot to do with it.

Leftists and liberals are very much into weird fantasy these days, but we should look at them as suffering from a form of insanity. Their delusions are a coping mechanism. If they admitted the obvious truth, that the world is at war with Islam (by Islam's choice, not ours) then liberals would be morally obligated to do something about it, e.g. vote for conservatives, admit that multiculturalism is harmful to Western Civilization, that a strong defense and military are necessary, that drilling ANWR is a good idea, and that unbridled immigration of unassimilable, hostile rag-o-philes into the West is national suicide. In short, all of their liberal pinko illusions would pop like a giant soap bubble. Couldn't have that.

I recently wrote about Flight 93, that when heroes die fighting aggressors, conservatives build memorials to them. Liberals, on the other hand, create fantastic conspiracy theories to explain why the tragedy never really happened in the first place.

Fight Google's Censorship of Anti-Islamic Sites

I found an article at today that tells of Google's latest censorship efforts of sites that expose Islamic evil. Google has now removed New Media Journal from its News search engine because Muslims complained about some anti-Islam articles.

Google is really FULL OF SHIT and it's time we told them so.

My email to these airheads follows, and before that, their explanation to New Media for their censorship. You too can write to Google and give them a piece of your mind. Write to

My email to Google:

I have read a growing number of stories about your idiotic P.C. censorship of
any site that tells the truth about Islam, on the moronic assumption that it is
“hate speech.” If an article is written about Islamic violence and the story is
true, there is no “hate speech,” there is only an unpleasant truth that Muslims
will try to censor and suppress.

Islam is “hate speech.” Its holy texts are shot through with commands to commit violence and murder for “Allah.” Its “prophet” was a mass murderer, rapist, pedophile, robber and despot. Today 90% of the violence in the world can be easily connected to Islam. Islam is violence, is tyranny, is oppression, against women and religious minorities.

Just yesterday we heard in the news that Iran has passed a law that will require
Jews living in that country to wear the Yellow Star as in days of Hitler; Christians and other religious minorities will be required to wear other identifying badges.

A couple of months ago three Christian Indonesian schoolgirls had their heads chopped off, because Mohammed commanded in the Quran to “strike off the heads of the infidels wherever you find them.” We had 9/11, then 7/7 in Britain, the bombings in Spain, massive rape of “infidel” women throughout Europe, genital mutilation in young girls living under Islam, and now a madman religious fanatic in Iran who wants to wipe Israel off the map, because of his religion, which is ISLAM.

You are not only censors, you are IGNORAMUSES who don’t have a clue as to what is happening in the world today, or why.

TELLING THE TRUTH is not HATE SPEECH – it is absolutely essential for the survival of Western Civilization.

Now for your homework, kiddies, I want you to visit this site: Islamic Evil, at Try reading some of the categories there: Muslim “Honor” killings, Muslim rape, Muslim slavery, Muslim persecution of Christians. This author, Ken Lydell, had the same site up as a Google blog, but the Muslims tagged it as having “Hateful Content,” when Ken had written nothing controversial at all – he had merely pointed his visitors to other websites that deal with these issues.

I know you like to think of yourselves as enlightened beacons of tolerance and
inclusiveness. To me, however, you look like damned fools who are doing your
best to hasten your own demise, by affording protection to those who would kill
you (i.e. Muslims).

Hi Frank,

Thanks for writing. We received numerous reports about hate content on your site, and after reviewing these reports, decided to remove your site from Google News. We do not allow articles and sources expressly promoting hate speech viewpoints in Google News (although referencing hate speech for commentary and analysis is acceptable).

For example, a number of the complaints we looked at on your site were found to be hate content:

We hope this helps you understand our position.

Google Team

New Media's comments on Google's email:

The fact is, All of the writers mentioned in the complaints are contributors to numerous other websites included in Google Search and Google News. Therefore, the targeting of The New Media is selective and does not constitute a consistent policy applied to all publications by Google.

Further, each of the writers have credentials in the subject area of radical Islam:

Ms. Peck is a television host and columnist from Los Angeles who has spent an extensive amount of time in Israel and the Middle East. Although her viewpoint is entirely her own it is validated by of her first-hand life experience.

Mr. Imani is an Iranian national whose family had to flee after the Shah was toppled. He has first-hand knowledge of the atrocities committed within that country and his viewpoint is validated by his life experiences.

Ms. Stock validates her viewpoint through research of first-source material from think tanks and governmental agencies.

Finally, The New Media Journal is branded on each page with a disclaimer that reads:

"Opinions expressed by contributing writers are expressly their own and may or may not represent the opinions of The New Media, its editorial staff or its publisher."

The editors at The New Media Journal leave it up to you to make the call. If you believe that we have been unfairly targeted by a “special interest group” that attempts to smother all criticism of radical Islam, if you believe that the First Amendment is being trampled, if you believe this is blatant censorship, we urge you to use the e-mail address in the above response from Google News to demand that they cease their censorship of The New Media Journal.

Google "hopes you understand their position."

Oh yeah, we think we do.

The War with Islam: Let it Come

Infidel Bloggers Alliance has a disturbing article today detailing the Muslim atrocities against schoolchildren in Beslan, Russia. Surely, the hottest part of Hell is reserved for Muslims, the world's most hateful, sick and degenerate religion of them all. Now before you dismiss me as a right wing whack job, read the article first. If the truth of Islamic terrorism doesn't cause moral outrage in your soul, then you are spiritually dead and beyond all understanding or redemption.

How completely sick and deranged does a Muslim have to be to not see the evil done in his name?

Muslims are required to give their enemies "a call to Islam" before they attack us, i.e. an invitation to join their religion. Refusal means conquest and death. But there's no reason it shouldn't work both ways. We should issue "a call out of Islam," an invitation to Muslims to shed their religion.

I hereby call on all Muslims to renounce your evil religion, to burn your Qur'ans and Hadiths, and to repeat the following: "Muhammad was a False Prophet and there is No God Named Allah!" This is a "call out of Islam." World events require that we make this call.

Last week the crackpot President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, issued "a call to Islam" in the form of a letter to President Bush, though it was not recognized as such by our ignorant leaders. We received a "call to Islam" from Osama Bin Laden before he attacked the Twin Towers in New York. It would seem obvious that Ahmadinejad is preparing to attack us.

Ahamdinejad is now preparing for nuclear war against Israel and the West. He is developing missiles that can carry nuclear warheads into Europe. He is a religious fanatic who believes that his False God will protect him and bring him victory. Meanwhile, the West is in deep denial of the threat, and in some cases, e.g. the university and Leftist politicians, are openly supportive of the enemy.

To Hell with it. I say, let the war with Islam come. An openly declared war is what we need. It is so much better than an ambiguous opposition to "terror," a slow death of a thousand cuts. No, no more nation building, no more "democratization" of Islamic regimes, no more making nice. No more rationalizing evil, no more what-ifs, no more wishful thinking, no more silly day dreams. An actual declared war will provide the moral clarity and determination that the West needs to survive. Leftist traitors will no longer be tolerated in their treason; the New York Times will no longer print military secrets necessary for our defense, not unless they desire to face a firing squad, that is.

What we need is abject conquest over Islam, a new and final Crusade, the illegalization of Islam throughout the world, with every mosque turned to rubble, every Qur'an piled into bonfires, every burqa anatomically disposed of within the Muslim clergy. Then we can finally, after fourteen centuries of Islamic aggression, get around to the only real solution to this evil: eradicating Islam from the face of the Earth.

Disposal Guide for the Holy Qur'an

Stogie's Guide to Proper Qur'an Disposal

Lately there has been a lot of confusion on the proper way to dispose of a copy of the Holy Qur'an. You may need to dispose of it because it is worn out, because your mom doesn't allow racist hate literature in the house, or because you want to show this holy document the deep respect it so richly deserves. Whatever the reason, you should learn proper disposal techniques.

DO NOT, and we mean don't, dispose of your Qur'an by flushing it down the toilet. A toilet is engineered to flush a normal amount of human waste, but a Qur'an is more shit than it can take. You are liable to damage your plumbing and stop up your toilet. You might also be arrested for polluting the environment.

The preferred way of disposing of a Holy Qur'an is to cram it into a hole, hence the name "Holy" Qur'an. And we do mean "Wholly," as in "wholly shoved up his ass."

First, obtain a Muslim terrorist, preferably one who is considered high profile. If you are on a tight budget and unable to obtain a high profile Muslim terrorist, a member of C.A.I.R. or a liberal college professor will do in a pinch.

Next, bend the terrorist over a desk and pants him. Finally, cram the Holy Qur'an up his ass, preferably sideways. Keep pushing until the Qur'an disappears from view. (If the Qur'an recipient is a member of C.A.I.R., his ass may be too tight and require lubrication. We recommend pork lard for this purpose.)

The end result (and boy, we do mean "end" result) is that you will have disposed of racist hate literature while filling a Muslim holy man with the enlightenment of the Holy Qur'an.

This is a win-win situation which will certainly increase understanding between Muslims and Westerners.

Stay tuned for more helpful multicultural tips from your favorite neighborhood stogiemeister.

The World Without Islam

Atlas Shrugs (one of my favorite blogs) posted a picture of the President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today with a sign in front of him that said "The World Without Zionism." Zionism was in big red letters. The picture was from a conference President Madman had a few months back for his fellow screwballs who want to see the USA and Israel wiped from the Earth.

I slightly edited the photo (see above) so that it is more to my tastes. Hope you like it, especially you Iranian Nationals out there.

You can see the original unedited photo here.

Come to think of it, the World without Islam should be the long-term goal of all who seek lasting peace on Earth. Think about it.

John Quincy Adams on Islam

John Quincy Adams, was the 6th President of the United States. He is not to be confused with his father, John Adams, who was one of the Founding Fathers and the 2nd President of the United States.

I am quite impressed with John Quncy Adam's grasp of the true nature of Islam. Even in the early 19th century John Quincy Adams knew more about Islam's tyranny than most people know in the 21st. Adams wrote a series of essays on government and foreign policy, and one of the subjects he wrote about was Islam. The following was quoted in Robert Spencer's book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades.

“In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he [Muhammad] connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE (Adam's capital letters)….Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant…While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.”

In another essay Adams wrote:

“…he [Muhammad] declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind…The precept of the Koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet of God.” [From Frontpage Magazine]
I like the way John Quincy Adams "tells it like it is": that Muhammad was an audacious imposter, a FALSE PROPHET. The essence of Islam is violence and lust, continuing warfare against all mankind, the exaltation of the brutal part of man's nature over the spiritual.

If ever there were an anti-Christ, it was Muhammad. If Jesus was "God made flesh," clearly Muhammad was Satan made flesh, the embodiment of evil. His religion and his God are nothing more than a disgusting lie.

Why Israel is Right and the Palestinians are Wrong

With all the Leftist crap about Israel and the history of the Middle East, it is no wonder that Israel is so often portrayed as the "occupiers" and oppressors of the poor, pathetic and pitiable Palestinians, who only want to live in peace, have their own homeland, have jobs, and murder as many Jews as possible.

One of the best articles on the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was written by David Horowitz in 2002. It clears up a lot of the absurd fairy tales that pass for truth these days, and if you don't really understand the conflict's history, you owe it to yourself to read it. The article is entitled Why Israel Is The Victim And The Arabs Are The Indefensible Aggressors In the Middle East, by David Horowitz,, January 11, 2002.

I stand with Israel and frankly, don't give a damn about the so-called Palestinians, a violent and depraved culture of of murder and mayhem who have resisted enormous efforts to find a just peace in the area and have continued to murder Israelis instead. It's time we stopped wasting our time on pursuing "peace" when these Muslims are religiously committed to murder.

Al-Qaeda Captured Documents Reveal Desperation and Defeat

Recently captured Al-Qaeda documents in Iraq show the terrorists are desperate and discouraged and admit they are losing the war to Coalition and Iraqi forces.

According to Baghdad State of Affairs website:

BAGHDAD, Iraq – During an Apr. 16 raid in the Yusifiyah area, Coalition Forces discovered a large amount of documents and videos ranging from plans to critiques including al Qaida in Iraq’s strategy in Baghdad, and how the terrorist organization lacks leadership, military capability and Iraqi support.

After discovering these documents, the translated versions were sent to Coalition Forces’ leadership for analysis, said a Multi-National Force spokesman. Specifically, the al Qaida author of the “Baghdad Strategy” and the “Baghdad State of Affairs” is unknown, but officials assess he is of significance within the terrorist organization. The latter memorandum outlines that al Qaida in Iraq presently has no strategy, that the ‘…mujahideen are not considered more than a daily annoyance to the Shiite government…’, and that the ‘…mujahideen in Baghdad are generally groups of assassins without any organized military capabilities.’

“The discovery of theses documents is extremely relevant. This information confirms what the Government of Iraq, Coalition Forces and ultimately the people of Iraq already know - that AQIZ’s role only attempts to impede Iraqis in following the road to prosperity, security and national unity,” said MNF-I spokesman, Brig. Gen. Rudy Wright.

According to the translated al-Qaida in Iraq’s documents, the Mujahideen’s only power lies in surprise ‘hit and run’ attacks, or setting up explosive charges and booby traps that predominantly target civilian men, women and children.

According to the author of the Baghdad State of Affairs document (translated), “The actions of the Iraqi Security Forces are having a significant negative impact on the Mujahideen’s ability to operate in Baghdad. Al Qaida in Iraq attacks Mosques and other public places to draw media attention and is having difficulty recruiting members because the people of Iraq do not support its cause.”

Iraqi Security and Coalition Forces continue to conduct operations that provide for the safety and security of all Iraqis. The Government of Iraq is presently working on forming its new National Unity Government according to its constitution voted on by all Iraqi people and is a hindrance to the terrorists who do not support this cause.

The Flight 93 Memorial Controversy & Other Tidbits

In our highly politicized society, almost everything is controversial these days, even the memorial to the heroes of United Flight 93. One wonders if people who create these controversies are just ignorant and insensitive, or whether they are rooting for our enemies.

The memorial to Flight 93 was chosen and announced just last September, to the horror and dismay of thousands of bloggers and others, who saw that it had decidedly Islamic overtones. Was this a memorial to the Flight 93 heroes or to the terrorists who murdered them? See Michelle Maklin's article on the memorial controversy here.

The memorial would be a red crescent, created by red maple trees and the memorial would be called "the Crescent of Embrace." Red crescents are, of course, Islamic symbols that are featured on the flags of many Islamic nations, as Real Clear Politics illustrates here.

A large outpouring of outrage resulted in a redesign of the "Crescent of Embrace," and last November the design was altered from a crescent to a bowl shape. Stanford blogger Alec Rawls at Error Theory is unimpressed and says the shrine is still "Islamofacistic." He may overstate the case, but he makes some interesting arguments. Read his article here.

This controversy is similar to the Ground Zero memorial plaque which was to provide apologetics to the terrorists who razed the Twin Towers, leading to a clear conclusion: Never, never let liberals design national monuments.
Other interesting facts: Whenever a national tragedy happens, conservatives want to create memorials and honor the dead. Liberals, on the other hand, want to create conspiracy theories and wonder what high cabal of capitalist oil-craving warmongers staged the event down to the smallest details. It is not surprising, then, that a number of internet sites claim that Flight 93 was shot down by the US Airforce, and that's all they're interested in. I won't link to any of these sites, but you can easily find them on the internet. Conspiracy theories are a great way to divert the mind from unpleasant facts that liberals want to avoid at all costs.
Why weren't the bodies of Flight 93 buried? The reason is simple: the plane dived into the ground nose-first at 500 miles per hour, instantly cremating all those aboard. I read somewhere that the only human remains that were found consisted of an eight-inch section of a spine. The rest of the remains are ashes, mixed into the earth by the force of the impact. For that reason, the Flight 93 monument is more than a memorial, it is also a grave. It is the final resting place of the passengers and crew...not to mention the four Muslim scumbags who killed them.

The West's Tepid Defense Against Islamic Aggression

Pamela of Atlas Shrugs has an article on two new books, Paul Sperry's Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington and David Selbourne's The Losing Battle with Islam.

She quotes Ilana Mercer of World Net Daily on an infuriating incident of the kind we hear about all too often:"Easily the most scandalous anecdote in the book (Infiltration) is that of FBI agent Sibel Edmonds walking into the Washington field office after 9-11, to find the Middle Eastern linguists making merry – passing around date-stuffed cookies to celebrate the occasion on which America got its just deserts. Were they fired? Stripped of their top-secret security clearances? Au contraire! More of their ilk were hired. Meanwhile, Arabic-speaking Sephardic Jews have been rejected for the job. There were "loyalty concerns," or so the bureau said."

The description of Muslim traitors in the Mercer quote above rings true. Serge Trifkovic, in his new book (see my review of it posted on April 22) Defeating Jihad writes that we should never give security clearances to Muslims because their religion makes them untrustworthy. Pamela feels discouraged by the state of the West's organized resistance to Islamic aggression and subversion. I share that feeling.

The biggest problem is that our leaders are wilfully blind to the true nature of the threat, i.e. that the threat is not "militant Islam" or "terrorism" but Islam itself. Our leaders are wallowing in P.C. induced self-delusion and denial, and so take no effective action to protect us. As Pamela writes, our leaders have "a deeply rooted unwillingness to make hard decisions or face hard facts, [which] has enabled the jihad threat to grow to its present dimensions... democracy, modernization, and hearts-and-minds initiatives are useless in this struggle, and doomed to failure."

I ordered Selbourne's book, pictured above, from Amazon, though I doubt it will tell me anything I don't already know. The burning question is, how do we make our leaders know it, how do we educate them and motivate them before it is too late?

The Romance of Suicide Bombings

My friend Ken at Islamic Evil has a picture of a Palestinian suicide bomber after he pushed the detonation button. It's pretty graphic, so don't look at it if you are about to eat breakfast. The bomber is face down in his own guts, the entire bottom part of his body is gone. His trigger finger appears to have been frozen in place at the moment he pushed the button.

Yes, you Palestinians and other Muslim nutballs ought to have a good look at this glorious fate you aspire to. Do you really want to look like that?

And the most important question is this: without a pecker, what are you going to do with 72 virgins?

Just asking.

Some Good News for a Change

Atlas Shrugs reports this morning that President George Bush declared that America will never abandon Israel. It's about time someone made a clear, unambiguos declaration of that fact, or as I wrote in my blog post of March 15, 2006:'s time for the West stop the bullshit and tell the truth: We will never allow you Muslims to destroy Israel. Thank you, Mr. President, for an all too rare expression of clarity on this issue.

Other good news, per the American Thinker, is that 16,000 African Muslims convert to Christianity every day, or six million per year. Muslim clerics are concerned about the huge numbers, to say the least. This, in spite of continuing genocide against Christians and other non-Muslims in Darfur. Without brute force to hold its members in the flock, Islam would lose millions more who would undoubtedly leave this evil religion as well. Hey Muslims, it's all coming apart isn't it?

Both of the above events are exactly what we need to defeat Islamic aggression: moral clarity and resolve, and millions of former Muslims converting to peaceful religions throughout the world.

Another note of good news, per Real Clear Politics (hat tip to Power Line) is that the coming glorious Democrat victory in the 2006 elections may be a lot of hot air. Bush's falling poll numbers may reflect dissatisfaction with Bush, but not necessarily Republicans in general. Dumping Republicans for Democrats is like firing a bank clerk for stealing petty cash and hiring Al Capone to replace him.

Ha! This good news makes my day.

No Lunatics - New Blog Graphic - Use Freely

I was tempted to call this "No Dick Wads" or "No Assholes" but decided that might be a bit tasteless even for me.

Anyway, here's another graphic. Feel free to use it.

Big Brother and Little Brother

With apologies to Infidel Bloggers Alliance for stealing and further editing their Photoshopped graphic!

No Martyrdom or Virgins for Moussaoui

UPDATE: At his sentencing, the Judge told Moussaoui that instead of dying as a martyr, he would "die with a whimper." She also noted that he would never speak in public again, nor see the sunshine or hear the birds or associate with whom he pleased. Moussaoui's mother is quoted as saying that “Now he is going to die in little doses ... He is going to live like a rat in a hole. What for? They are so cruel.”

What's not to like about this verdict?

Zacarias Moussaoui was given life by a Federal jury today for his role in the 9/11 terrorist attack on America. The AP is making it into some kind of rebuff to the Federal Justice system, saying:

"But even with heart-rending testimony from nearly four dozen victims and their relatives — testimony that forced some jurors to wipe their eyes — the jury was not convinced that Moussaoui, who was in jail on Sept. 11, deserved to die."

The Leftist AP thinks that there is nothing worse than death, but they are wrong. Muslims "love death," as they have repeatedly told us. Moussaoui was looking forward to his martyrdom and the 72 dark-eyed virgins he could expect in Heaven. Rotting in jail for decades is a far worse fate for him, as I argued in my post of April 13 below. No martyrdom, no heroism, no virgins, no praise. Just unending boredom and gripping despair.

The Jury gave this bastard a worse fate than death, and I for one am happy for it.

Finding the Graves of Special People

A very interesting website is Find A Grave, or You can search thousands of cemeteries for the graves of famous people and see photos of their final resting places, as well as facts about their lives. You can find the grave of Abraham Lincoln for instance, or that of your favorite old time actor or actress, or your favorite author, like John Steinbeck (his ashes are interred in Salinas Cemetery in Salinas, California). It sounds morbid, but it isn't. It allows you to know more about the person as well as his final destination.

If you are interested in the 40 souls who perished on United Flight 93, for example, you can go to this findagrave link, which contains 38 obituaries of the passengers and crew. The film depicts them as ordinary people, and they were. Go to the link I just gave you and see what they actually looked like, what they did for work, where they were going that fatal day of September 11, 2001.

An example is lovely Honor Wainio, who was 27 years old. She died on Flight 93 while on a business trip. I went through all 38 obituaries so I could know something about all of them. (The site says there are 39 but there is one duplication.) Knowing what their names were, what they looked like, and what they had accomplished was important to me. I don't want them to be just nameless and faceless statistics. They were people who deserve to be remembered. I wanted to acknowledge their humanity, to look into each of their faces, to pray for each and every one.

Want to know if a certain famous person is still alive or dead? You can find out by going to Dead People Server and searching for their name. You will learn whether they are alive or dead, and if the latter, the date of their death and the cause. Links are provided to their obituary, their film credits if applicable, and to Find A Grave. Whatever happened to John Forsythe, the actor in "Dynasty"? (He's still alive and in his 80's.)

As a member of Sons of Confederate Veterans, I have spent a lot of time in cemeteries looking for graves and tombstones of Civil War veterans. We repair old grave sites, get tombstones for unmarked graves, identify long forgotten brothers who have gone before. In the process, we learn that history is more than dates and facts in sterile text books, but is in fact the lives of many ordinary men and women, some of who did extraordinary things.

My Cartoons

I draw cartoons using a couple of digital art programs, Photo Shop and XaraX. Sometimes, if I take my time and have a really good inspiration, I draw good cartoons. More often than not I do them quickly and they are just so-so. In any case, you are welcome to use them on your blog or website.

Here are a couple of cartoons I did in the past. Click on the pictures to see a larger version.

I used to use the pen name "Camel Ray" to avoid fatwas and jihads. Now I go by the name of Stogie; but we are one and the same.

I drew this one when John Kerry was running for President. I think it was one of my better ones.
