Assassination Fantasies of the Far Left

There's a new UK movie out in which President Bush is assassinated. Oh yez, it's only fiction. Sure. What it is, is the favorite fantasy of the Far Left. Some might even say that by portraying the deed in film, its producers are in fact subtly recommending it. If you want something to happen, it is good to plant the seed in the brains of the Marxist-Muslim radicals who will do the deed.

I must say I often entertain fantasies of my own, and I'm not talking about the young lady in the next cubicle with the big gazongas. I'm talking about assassination-dreaming Leftists and Democrats who plan the impeachment of President Bush. I am not crazy about President Bush -- he's too liberal and too wishy-washy for me -- but I can't tolerate the use of assassination or impeachment as partisan political strategies.

I sometimes fantasize about a new secession of conservative states if and when the Marxist Dems once again gain the reins of government. I wonder if a shooting war, a new Civil War, is possible. I think about my 1911 Colt 45 and the large holes it makes. I wonder how far I would have to be pushed before considering its use outside of target practice. The truth is, pretty far. I'm the kind of guy who kicks spiders out of my house rather than stepping on them. But even I have my limits.

So Lefties, do think twice before you decide to do something that radical, whether it be assassination or impeachment. Actions always have consequences, so make sure your actions are just and honorable.

We Rightwingers also have occasional fantasies, and we're all members of the NRA.

Thought For Today: Defy Islam

Defy Islam. Withhold from it all respect and all fear of its violence and hatred. Islam is the Religion of Hell, the religion of a false prophet, a 7th century band of cutthroats, rapists, liars, murderers and thieves. To follow Islam is to follow the darkest corners of the human soul.

The patience of a long-suffering, decent humanity is wearing dangerously thin and the day is coming when it will demand justice for its grievances. The bearded fools in turbans should tremble and prepare to meet the real God, whose name is not Allah.

Defy and deny the lie. Reject Islam, withhold from it all respect and all tolerance for its evil.

Sixty Years of Prayer at the Western Wall

In Jerusalem, a female journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, everyday, for a long, long time. So she went to check it out. She went to the Western Wall and there he was!

She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, she approached him for an interview.

"I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN. Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?"

For about 60 years."

"60 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?"

"I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims. I pray for all the hatred to stop and I pray for all our children to grow up in safety and friendship."

"How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?"

"Like I'm talking to a f*ckin' wall!

Fox Reporter Has "Highest Respect" for Islam

The two Fox reporters, Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, were released by their Muslim captors yesterday. They had been held as prisoners since their kidnapping at gunpoint on August 14.

The two men were forced at gunpoint to "convert" to Islam and to make anti-American comments for the Muslim cameras. I don't begrudge them that - when in the hands of uncivilized barbarians, you do what you must to survive. However, it is Centanni's asinine comment after release that frosts me. He said, "We were forced to convert to Islam at gunpoint. Don't get me wrong here. I have the highest respect for Islam, and I learned a lot of good things about it, but it was something we felt we had to do because they had the guns, and we didn't know what the hell was going on."

If Centanni has the "highest respect" for such evil, maybe he should keep the Muslim robe they gave him so he can wear it to prayers in the local Mosque. One wonders how indelible the mental brainwashing known as "political correctness" really is, when one who survives murder by barbarians feels compelled to "respect" their primitive beliefs.

Let's interview a Muslim captive now and see what he has to say about it.

Saber Point: Well Mr. Captive, how do you feel about Islam now that your Muslim captors are beheading you?

Captive: Well, I have always had the greatest respect for Islam. I hear it has a lot of good in it. We shouldn't condemn the whole religion just because 98.6% of its adherents are lethally violent. Why, my mama used to say "GURGLE GURGLE GASP."

Saber Point: Your mama said that? Oh, I see, you couldn't speak clearly as the butcher knife was slicing through your esophagus. Hey, watch it, you're bleeding on my shoes.



Saber Point: Well that seems to conclude our interview. We rest our point.

Butt-Ugly SF Chronicle Writer Insults Ann Coulter

Michelle Malkin has a story about how our local Leftist Rag, the San Francisco Chronicle, has an article today that is vicious in its personal insults of Ann Coulter.

The article was written by one Butt-Ugly Frisco Fruit named Peter Hartlaub, the "Culture" Editor of the Frisco Chronicle's online edition, Seems Peter Hardthrob thinks Ann Coulter looks like a horse, but then that may be the usual perspective for a Horse's Ass like Hardthrob.

Do leave this Butt-Ugly moron a response to his article at the link above. Here's what I wrote:

Anyone as Butt-ugly as Peter Hartlaub ought to think twice before insulting a woman as intelligent and beautiful as Ann Coulter. I notice how you Lefties are good at personal insults and character assassination, but truly pathetic in any real debate. Not a one of you has even attempted to refute Coulter on any serious topic. The reason is, you can't. I really enjoy watching Coulter make mincemeat out of her liberal opponents in debate, it is truly wonderful to watch.

Ann Coulter is a beautiful woman, but the truth is, she's still more of a man than Peter Hartlaub.
As for Ann Coulter compared to Mr. Butt-Ugly, I'll let you decide who's better looking.

Was There a Second Plane on the Grassy Knoll?

The degree of delusion and paranoia coming from the Left these days is truly amazing. If the Left fought terrorism and tyranny with the same zeal they fight reality, it would be a peaceful world in no time.

One of the ways the Left dispenses with the nasty obligation to oppose tyranny is to simply deny that it exists. They have no responsibility to respond to Islamic atrocities if the atrocities were all faked by their own government. For that reason, imagining a massive conspiracy by the Bush administration relieves them of a lot of psychic pain and feelings of obligation. Conspiracy theories afford Liberals the ultimate in denial of personal responsibility. How can we ask them to support the President, the military, the war on terror, since support for all of these is unnecessary? The whole thing was faked for political reasons, to fire up support for the Republicans, increase the military budget, and put millions of new dollars into the coffers of Bush McHalliburton while stomping on non-white third-worlders in a capitalistic orgy of militaristic, racist war-mongering. Or something like that.

With the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 atrocity looming, we can expect to hear these paranoid delusions dusted off and given new life; indeed, I would expect even the "mainstream" of Democratic Party leaders to lend some credence to them. (The quotes around mainstream denote my extreme skepticism that, with the demise of Joe Lieberman's candidacy, a Democrat mainstream even exists.)

Lefty Nutcase trolls have been pushing these conspiracy theories at some conservative blogs and websites, Chronwatch in particular. Recently they have been pushing the notion that an airplane did not slam into the Pentagon, that Flight 77 did not even exist. (That must be terribly comforting to the families of those passengers who simply disappeared on that day.)

The Chronwatch Forum provided the links below to prove that Flight 77 did indeed slam into the Pentagon, and rebuttals of some of the conspiracy theorists' key claims. You may find them entertaining as well as informative.

It was a plane that tore into the Pentagon on 9/11. This is from Snopes:

Blogger's Memorial to 9/11 Victims

Michelle Malkin alerted us bloggers to participate in the memorial of the 9/11 tragedy. The blogger's memorial requires each participating blogger to memorialize one of the 9/11 victims on September 11, 2006.

I signed up in time, as the 2,996 victims were assigned on a first come first serve basis. I will be memorializing Robert D. Colin, Age 49, who was killed at the World Trade Center. He was from West Babylon, New York.

There isn't much on him on the internet, so I may try and contact friends and family for more details and pictures of his life.

Robert D. Colin. A working guy who went to work one day and died. There but for the grace of God go all of us.

The Emerging Reality of the Middle East

UPDATE: Lawrence Auster at View From the Right sums it all up quite accurately and succinctly today. He writes:
  1. Islam is the problem.
  2. However, we do not have the ability to destroy Islam.
  3. Nor do we have the ability to democratize Islam.
  4. Nor do we have the ability to assimilate Islam.
  5. Therefore, the only solution is to separate ourselves from Islam.
Diana West at has written a great speech for President Bush, a speech he should give but never will. Through her fictitious Bush speech, West advocates what Serge Trifkovic did in his last book on Jihad: the de-islamization of the West, not the democratization of the Middle East.

Personally, I think Bush is wrong in his belief that all people in all cultures yearn for "freedom," i.e. democratic forms of government, tolerant, liberal and pluralistic societies. Clearly, most Muslims do not yearn for that. They yearn for the restoration of the Caliphate and the institution of sharia throughout the world.

We all see reality through our own cultural lens and it is easy to believe that our own prejudices and preferences are the laws of nature. They aren't. Conservatives make that mistake when they believe all cultures will welcome pluralism and democracy. Liberals make that mistake when they believe hostile cultures can be pacified through sweet talk, trust and understanding.

The current effort to bring democracy to the Middle East will fail as long as Islam is the dominant ideology in that part of the world. Removing this deeply ingrained mindset would be very difficult and take many decades.

West argues that when dedicated Muslims have the vote, they will vote in sharia law under which women have second class status and other religions are suppressed and subject to dhimmitude. That is what is happening in Afghanistan and Iraq right now. Democratization, without first forcibly removing Islam, is a fool's errand.

Do we want to forcibly remove Islam from the world? Would it be worth the cost in blood and money? No, at least not in my book, not at this juncture in history. I would prefer to cut them off and let them die on the vine.

A better strategy is to isolate Islam so it cannot harm us. That means stopping all Muslim immigration into the West, and in the case of Europe, massive deportations of those already there. It means achieving energy independence in practical ways, i.e., by domestic drilling for oil in Alaska and off our coasts, by building many more oil refineries, and by building many more nuclear power plants. Leave the hydrogen cars and switch grass for long-term, future development: radical new energy sources are not a practical solution for the forseeable future.

When the Muslim nations no longer have our oil wealth, they can't buy expensive military hardware and munitions and they can no longer blackmail us economically. Let them eat sand.

Having a forward base in the Middle East to deter Islamic aggression is a good idea, but it doesn't have to be Iraq or any of the Muslim nations. Let's move our military forces out of Korea and Europe and Iraq and base them in Israel.

Reading the Qur'an and Zell Miller

I recently started reading the Qur'an and have read the first four chapters. It isn't an easy task, as the book is repetitive and often shallow. It's also just plain boring. So far I have learned that you must fight in Allah's way against the unbelievers, who you can and can't marry, how to divide up an inheirtance in various scenarios where there are so many man or so many women, and how to cure dhiarrhea in camels. Okay, I just made up that last part.

I have read a lot about the Qur'an, but not the actual Qur'an itself. Some leftist airhead recently suggested I read the Qur'an to learn of the errors of my ways, i.e., believing that Muslims are anything but gentle lambs in headscarves. So I decided he's right, I need to read it so I can say that I've read it, and thus cut off this leftist argument from the start.

So far everything I've read has been accurately cited or described by other writers. In other words, I have not yet encountered any great revelations about the heretofore unrecognized peaceful attributes of Islam. Maybe President Bush read a different translation.

Reading the Qur'an is difficult because the book is not organized logically. Whoever put it together, in the swirling mists of the ancient past (a little color there), organized it by the size of the chapters. The longest chapter is first, then the next longest, and so forth. It wasn't put together in chronological order, in the order of "revelation" or historical sequence. It was put together in order of size. Well Mohammed always did believe that "size counts."

Another slight problem is that maybe as much as one-fifth of the Qur'anic verses are nonsense, as in "devoid of all meaning whatsoever." I don't know exactly why this is, but Arabs brag about the great poetic qualities of the Qur'an, how wonderful and musical it sounds when recited in Arabic. I suspect that when Mo and minions needed a rhyming word to finish off a verse, and they couldn't think of a real one, they just made one up. Sort of like this:

All the gold and gorgeous gams of captured women
Belong to Mo so he can go swimmin'
So hand over the loot, oh ye Mujahadeen
Or I'll split your head open with my wackytureen.

This is just an example, not an actual verse from the Qur'an. To further illustrate, if the last word "wackytureen" makes too much sense, substitute a nonsense word of your own that rhymes. Have fun with it, you too can be a Qur'anic scholar.

So I will keep reading the Qur'an, safe in the knowledge that the experience will keep me out of Hell. God no doubt figures that if you've read the Qur'an, you've suffered enough. I will need to lay in a good supply of stogies, however, so I can do something pleasurable to offset the reading experience.

Another book I am reading, one much more profound than the Qur'an, is Zell Miller's book, "A National Party No More," about the downfall of the Democrats. Zell Miller was the US Senator from Georgia, and before that, Governor of Georgia. Reading his book is like sitting around a cast iron stove in an old-fashioned country market, smoking corn cob pipes and shooting the bull about friends, family and places. It is as Southern as cornpone and as warm and pleasurable as a snootful of Southern Comfort.

Zell talks about his mom, an extraordinary woman who built her home from stones she dug out of the creek, a home Zell still lives in today. His stories of people and places are rustic and down-home tales of old fashioned values of hard work, good character and determination. I am enjoying it. There was only one part that disturbed me, slightly, and that's when Zell tries to establish his credentials as an enlightened liberal by quoting (you guessed it) To Kill A Mockingbird.

Zell is referring to the time in his governorship when he got into trouble for trying to take the Confederate battleflag out of the Georgia State flag. We all know how tough Zell was when he debated that lefty commentator Chris Matthews and gave him hell for beating up on Michelle Malkin. However, back in 1994 at the height of the Georgia flag fight, it was a different story: Zell got his butt whipped good in debate.

That beating was supplied by a friend of mine, Charles P. Lunsford of Atlanta, like me a life member of Sons of Confederate Veterans, who debated Zell about the flag on the Larry King Live show and, to our shock and disbelief, whipped Zell's ass. I was mad at Zell for a long time after that and only changed my mind about him when he bawled out Chris Matthews. Okay Zell, I guess we can pass you the moonshine jug once again. But shut up about Atticus Finch. You ain't him and we ain't the lynch mob, even if we do like the Confederate flag.

Here in Podunk County, the weather has been cool lately, redolent of Fall, and it is quite pleasant to sit in my backyard gazebo after work and puff and read, my dog at my feet and God overhead. Now if I just had a jug of corn squeezin's life would be at a peak. Oh, and Aunty Belle, you can come and share it with me, but bring your own corncob pipe.

Hezbollah Celebrates Great Victory

No Peace With Islam

This week I've noticed a hardening of attitude amongs Bay Area talk show hosts. Both Lee Rogers and Brian Sussman of 560 AM radio show progress in their grasp of reality. Rogers remarked that our war with Islam will eventually compel us to nuke the major capitals of the Muslim world, including Saudi Arabia.

I think this hardening of attitude is related to the releaseof the 9/11 tapes this week. There was one disturbing tape of a Melissa Doy who died on the 83rd floor of the North Tower. Her last few minutes of conversation with a 911 operator were played yesterday, ending with the collapse of the tower and her death. The tapes remind us of who the enemy is and how evil he is. Personally, I would like to see Islam wiped from the face of the earth.

Brian Sussman of 560 AM radio has stopped differentiating between "bad Muslims" and "good Muslims." He says if the latter exist, they are strangely silent when the former begin their mass murders and crimes against humanity.

I sense a general awakening among the American population. We are at war with Islam and either Islam or Western democracies can survive, but not both. One of us must go.

All we need now is one more spectacular terrorist attack on the West and a lot of mosques will go up in smoke. Bring it on, terrorists! Your days are numbered.

Gross-Out of the Week: Lew Rockwell & Cindy Sheehan Knock Knees

I've known for some time now that the so-called paleo-conservatives are in bed with the far left. However, I had no idea how extensive the problem has become.

It came out this week that Lew Rockwell, the political schizophrenic who runs, has been knocking knees with peace activist Cindy Sheehan.

Rockwell was once a respected voice in the conservative community, regularly interviewed on conservative talk radio. He also regularly wrote political opinion pieces that were published in the main stream media. Then he went weird on us, just after 9/11 happened. He morphed into a peacenik and buddy of the far left. His political positions slid rapidly leftward. He stopped being interviewed on conservative talk radio and I haven't seen any articles from him in several years.

I actually met Lew Rockwell once, and sat next to him at dinner at a meeting in San Mateo of the John Randolph Society. This was ten years ago or more. I noticed then that he was a vegetarian and I kidded him about whether he actually was a conservative, based on his choice of vittles. I thought I was kidding, but I must have been on to something.

This past week it came out that Lew and Cindy have been doing the horizontal polka. They met in an internet chat room and learned there is no more powerful an aphrodisiac than a shared hatred of America.

Their first meeting and conversation outside of Crawford, Texas was picked up by a concealed microphone worn by an FBI agent posing as a pizza delivery boy. Here is the transcript of that recording. Warning: not for the squeamish.

Cindy: I hate America and Bush is Hitler!

Lew: Bush is WAY Hitler! Oh yeah! Cindy, you are SO PROFOUND!

Cindy: Terrorists are freedom fighters! Americans are Nazis!

Lew: Hezbollah good! Israel bad! Weakness is strength! Love is hate!

Cindy: Good is Evil! Evil is Good! Black is white! Up is down!

Lew: Free marijuana for everyone!

Cindy: Free abortions on demand! No, MANDATORY abortions for white people!

Lew: Oh're getting me hot!

Cindy: Oh Lew, you magnificent stud muffin!

Lew & Cindy: Suckface, suckface, frenzied grabbing, pant, pant, unzip, unbutton, moan! Yeah, yeah, obaby obaby! UNNNNGGHH!

If y'all want to talk to Lew and Cindy, you can find them down at the Squeaky Springs Motel, just outside of Crawford, Texas.

Zombie Explains "Faux-tography"

Digitial guru Zombie, who emailed me a few days ago (see my second preceding post below), now has a page of fake photography of the Reuters variety, along with examples and explanations.

Zombie describes four categories of faked "news" photos:

1. Digitally manipulating images after the photographs have been taken.
2. Photographing scenes staged by Hezbollah and presenting the images as if they were of authentic spontaneous news events.
3. Photographers themselves staging scenes or moving objects, and presenting photos of the set-ups as if they were naturally occurring.
4. Giving false or misleading captions to otherwise real photos that were taken at a different time or place.

Powerline blog describes Zombie's analysis as "the most comprehensive so far of Reuters photo fraud."

Profiling Needed Now

Today we learn the "Religion of Peace" had a plot to destroy up to 20 commercial airplanes by smuggling bomb components aboard aircraft and assembling them in the bathroom. The Muslim terrorists who were captured claim that they are just the tip of the iceberg, that there are many more involved in the plot which they say will be "cataclysmic."

The mainstrean news media, of course, don't mention that the plotters were Muslims. This insane censoring of the Islamic-terrorist connection has really got to stop. The public needs to know the truth so they can make informed decisions.

One of those decisions is that airport profiling must begin IMMEDIATELY. Anyone who looks like he or she comes from a terrorist/Muslim nation should be questioned, wanded and their luggage searched. The P.C. idiocy of scrutinizing everyone equally is insanity. Virtually all of the terrorists are Muslims, so being Muslim should be a red flag for special attention. Profiling will save lives even while it offends liberal sensibilities. Israel has used profiling for forty years and have had no successful terrorist attacks against their airlines during the same period.

On almost a daily basis we see continuing evidence that Islam is a dangerous threat to the West, that Muslim nations mean us harm and plot to kill our people in great numbers. Still, we have arrogant blowhards like Percival (read the comments to my last post) who pretend that Islam is not inherently violent or dangerous and that it is "bigoted" to think so.

Call us all the names you like, liberals. We intend to survive and you don't have to like it.

Victor David Hanson points out that Jihad has occurred for centuries and is endemic to Islam:

So much is obvious — facts of the historical record. Yet listen to a respected historian in a conservative magazine: “Muslim holy wars (“jihads”), as taught in the Koran, were first and foremost a personal inner struggle for moral purity” and only secondarily a war against infidels. So all those Muslim armies that conquered the Christian Near East, North Africa, Egypt, Spain, Sicily, the Balkans, all that plunder, slaughter, rape, enslavement, kidnapping, and destruction were only the "secondary” jihad. How could such blindness to the obvious, masquerading as sophisticated “tolerance,” not arouse contempt in the minds of our adversaries? They tell us over and over that they are waging jihad in order to establish the global hegemony of Islam, and we tell ourselves that these Muslims don't understand their own religion. Millions and millions of Muslims all over the world cheer for the jihadists and support them materially and psychologically, millions idolize bin Laden and celebrate the murder of Westerners, but we tell ourselves that they are a minority of confused souls whose minds have been addled by poverty or autocracy or anger over the Palestinians.

Are you listening Percival?

Email from the Great ZOMBIE

I received this email from Zombie, a Bay Area photographer who films protests and rallies in the San Francisco Bay Area. Zombie' s website is an archive of the photographs, and he has been mentioned by both Little Green Footballs and Michelle Malkin.

Also, check out his archive of Mohammed drawings and cartoons!

I consider it an honor that Zombie wrote to me. Here's his email.
Stogie --

Just writing to say that I enjoy your photoshops of the terror-lovers' signs! Also, I see from your profile that you live in the Bay Area, and you like looking at pictures from pro-terror demonstrations; and yet you don't seem to know about my site, which is the most popular site of photos of rallies in the Bay Area:

Worth checking out! An infinite supply of photoshop opportunities.

A Brief History Lesson

I received the following message and brief history from Larry and Shirley Bovshow. They live in Woodland Hills, California
Stogie-Love the blog and your sense of humor!
Larry and Shirley Bovshow

The history of humans began some 12,000 years ago. Humans existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunter/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the winter and would go to the coast to live on fish and lobster in the summer.

The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundations of modern civilization, and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

Liberals & Conservatives.
Once beer was discovered, it required grain, and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early human ancestors were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as ”the Conservative movement."

Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting, learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q's and doing the sewing, fetching and hairdressing. This was the beginning of the liberal movement. Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as 'girleymen.'

Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy and group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that the conservatives provided.

Over the years, conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.

Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish and if they eat meat at all they like it well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men.

Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood, group therapists and people living on their daddy's money are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't "fair" to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives drink domestic beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, soldiers, athletes, and generally, anyone who works productively outside government.

Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.

Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to "govern" the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America. They crept in to America after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get MORE for nothing.

That's enough for today's lesson in world history.

When the Tinfoil Hats Attack

There was a story in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette yesterday that I found disturbing. It was about a group of bloggers who believe the whole 9/11 attack on America was a hoax from top to bottom. Their so-called leader is a guy who calls himself Killtown and has a blog by the same name.

As we have seen from the faked Dan Rather memos and the faked Reuters news photographs, it is smart to be suspicious and on guard against news stories from biased people with an agenda. It is quite another thing, however, to be a paranoid-schizophrenic like "Killtown."

Should I be concerned that this Leftist nutcase believes Bush and company blew up the Twin Towers and blamed it on Islamic extremists? Should I care that he thinks Flight 93 was shot down by airforce jets? Or that Flight 77 that crashed into the Pentagon never really existed (it too was a planned explosion by the Bush conspiracists, in this case a missile)?

No, there have always been multitudes of squirrel-farm refugees. You see them on street corners, giving speeches from soap boxes, warning of impending doom. One faction of these citizens of Kookville believes the earth is flat. Another thinks the moon landings were staged on a Hollywood movie set. Don't get me started on the JFK assassination conspiracists, one of my pet peeves. And, while we're at it, Lincoln's assassination was set up by his own government, RFK's assassination was also done by government conspirators who then shoved a smoking gun into the hands of innocent bystander Sirhan. Who really killed Martin Luther King? The guvmint, of course, just like they did Jimmy Hoffa.

In fact, people like Killtown (whose name should be Kill-Logic) believe that every major event of history, for the past 150 years or more, has been staged. It's all a massive conspiracy by a "high cabal" who are pulling strings, fomenting assassinations, starting wars, stealing elections, manipulating gas prices and staging tragedies like 9/11. These people don't need a blog, they need a rubber room and a prescription for thorazine. But do I care? Not much, usually.

However, the news story above is about a lady in Pennsylvania, Val McClatchey, who photographed the smoke cloud from Flight 93 seconds after it dived into the ground in a field near her home. She was sitting on her front porch and heard the whine of jet engines and then a house-rattling boom. She grabbed her digital camera and snapped the smoke cloud rising from the horizon. The FBI says the picture is the closest thing they've got to a photo of the actual crash.

Enter Killtown and his pack of paranoid losers. Killtown posts on his site that the picture is a "total fraud" and wonders if McClatchey photoshopped it herself. Worse, he admonishes the news media and any other "researcher" to harangue McClatchey to get to "the truth." The truth, of course, is anything that supports Killtown's paranoid delusions and preconceived conspiracy theories.

The FBI inspected the memory card in McClatchey's camera soon after the crash, finding the photo to be genuine. This doesn't stop Killtown. He theorizes:
"If the smoke plume was photo-shopped on there, then that could mean either that the photo was simply a fraud by Val, or it was a fraud by her and the FBI and/or other government agents since she did mention that the FBI did inspect the memory card from her camera."
Of course, there is an alternative explanation, that the photo was genuine. That possibility is not even considered by Killtown, as it doesn't support his parnoid delusions.

Then, after slandering McClatchey as a fraud and a conspiracist, Killtown publishes her address, phone number and email so his "researchers" can track her down (he also provides a convenient map to her place of business). In the Post-Gazette article, McClatchey expresses fear for her safety because of this. Yes, her information is already published on the web, but as a real estate agent for people who want to buy homes; it is not published as a "fraud and a conspiracist" and made generally available to leftwing kooks and paranoid schizos. Killtown's focus on McClatchey this way could be interpreted as a physical threat.

The Post-Gazette quotes McClatchey:
"This Killtown, whoever he may be, I find it very disturbing that this is a 16-page attack on me personally," said Mrs. McClatchey, who opened her real estate company a year and a half ago. "My business is named. That hurts me personally. It's pretty disturbing. My whole life is out there, a map to where I live, a map to my office. It's a safety issue for me. There's some crazy people out there."
I've written to Squirlie Killtown and asked him to take McClatchey's address and phone number off his blog, but he may need a bit more convincing. Do stop in and let this mental case know what you think.

I have been combing the web for clues to Killtown's identity, which I will publish here along with his address, phone number and a map to his house (unless he takes down the McClatchey info first). Killtown is apparently a 31 year old member of Democratic Underground, a group of leftwing extremists on a par with the KOS kids, and apparently lives in Washington D.C.

I haven't ID'd Killtown yet, but anyone who opines as much as he does leaves tracks all over the web, on websites, message boards and newsgroups. Somewhere he said too much and let down his guard, and I will find it eventually. If that doesn't work I can always offer a cash reward to anyone who can ID him for me. Someone will out him, sooner or later.

If anyone out there knows more about this guy, let me know.

Hey Killtown, feel the warmth on the back of your neck? That's my breath.

Take down McClatchey's address and phone number from your site and I will go away.

Two More Staged Photos

This burning Qur'an was supposedly found at the site of an Israeli bombing attack in Lebanon. It was taken by the same Photoshopping faker photographer Adnan Hajj. In this case, it appears Hajj just set fire to a Qur'an he placed at the scene and photographed it. As Ace of Spades blog points out, what incredible luck for a Qur'an to catch fire a couple hours after the airstrike, just when the photographer arrives on the scene. Yeah, right.

Now this one is a real Photoshopped pic. I made it myself several weeks ago in response to the latest Muslim outrage. That was several outrages ago so I don't remember the triggering event.

Photoshopping With Al-Reuters

If you've read Little Green Footballs today, you know Charles over there caught Reuters in a photo fraud. Reuters Photoshopped (badly) a picture of Lebanon so that it showed considerably more smoke than the original. Al-Reuters is now apparently an official propaganda arm of Hezbollah.

Their terrible Photoshopped picture is to the left. People who actually know how to Photoshop are laughing their asses off today.

Charles has tentatively identified this second picture as the likely original, as it was taken from the very same vantage point and can be overlayed the original as proof.

There's a bit of smoke, but not enough to truly demonize the Israelis. So they Photoshopped it to add more smoke (top picture).

Like other Photoshoppers, I just had to try my hand at it. So I added a big column of smoke of my own to the original. I then submitted it to Reuters for their use. They liked it but thought the picture of Godzilla a little too over the top, even for them.

UPDATE: The blogosphere is all over this story. Several bloggers have found obvious Photoshopped fakes of other pictures by this same photographer. Others have found some of his photos that appear obviously staged. Moreover, this is the same photographer who took the Qana pictures of the green helmet guy with the dead children, also obviously staged and caught by the blogosphere. Go Blogs!! It's a feeding frenzy on the MSM, particularly Reuters, a very biased news outlet. We live for days like this. Thanks Reuters!

What the Heck, I'm Gregory Peck

Over at Aunty Belle's Back Porch I encountered a couple of liberal writers who are just appalled at our determined resistance to Islamic evil. Like liberals often do, they see "racism" in every conflict. Whenever some other culture or ideology is criticized, they are programmed to transmogrify into Gregory Peck in "To Kill a Mockingbird" and rain truth, decency and tolerance upon the unenlightened hordes. When a great opportunity comes along to pose and posture as Atticus, one simply can't let it slip by.

As usual, these liberals are full of themselves. Opposition to Islam isn't born of racism. For one thing, Muslims are of many different races and the majority of them aren't even Arabs. It is not their "race" we oppose but their hateful, violent and totalitarian ideology. We oppose it because it threatens us, because it has attacked us and will do so again, given the opportunity. We oppose it because its goal is to substitute barbaric Sharia law in place of our Constitution, Bill of Rights and freedoms.

Percival in Aunty Belle's discussion argues that Muhammad lessened the violence in the Arabic world (he actually increased it) by his coming, and that violent Muslims are a minority who don't speak for the whole religion. But the violent Muslims are the ones who are following what their scriptures and their prophet actually taught: violent jihad, forcible conversion, imposition of Sharia over all mankind. And it is the violent ones who are in power in Iran, the ones who fly planes into skyscrapers and bomb trains and attack Israel.

Percival also claims that Muhammad was a biblical scholar and that his deep understanding of Jewish and Christian scriptures inspired him to write the Qur'an. You have to wonder where people like Percival get such hogwash. Is it just anecdotal nonsense they pick up from their buddies at Starbuck's? Did they read a book by Noam Chomsky? Or did they just make it up themselves?

Muhammad was an illiterate camel driver whose knowledge of the Bible was on a par with Percival's understanding of Islam: in other words, weak, anecdotal and fragmentary. For God's sake, Percival READ A FRIGGING BOOK.

Another liberal at Aunty Belle's site castigated us for giving way to "hate," which she, in her moral superiority, massive cerebellum and profound state of enlightenment, would never give in to. "How can you be so narrow minded," she asks us.

I replied to her, "How can you be such an airhead? And will you still feel morally superior in a burqa after they've cut off your labia and clitoris?"

Liberals. They'd rather pretend to be Gregory Peck than save their own asses (not to mention clitorises) from jihad.

The biggest difference between liberals and conservatives seems to be in the areas of moral clarity and decision making. Liberals overthink threatening situations, overanalyze and second guess themselves to death. They seem to have an internal monlogue that goes something like this: "Why do they hate us? What did we do to make them so angry? If we shoot back, will we just make them angrier? Do we really have the moral authority to oppose them? What about the Crusades? What about the Inquisition? How can we criticize them for doing what we have done ourselves in centuries past? Maybe we should call a meeting of the UN, maybe we should appoint a special envoy? Would they be satisfied if we just apologize for all the evil things we've done and give them some money?"

By this time the Iranian missile has blown them up and it's all moot anyway. The major result of the liberal internal dialogue is INACTION. The liberal internal dialogue is not designed to produce a coherent conclusion, direction or decision, it is designed to AVOID A DECISION.

The conservative inner dialogue, by comparison, goes something like this:

(1) They are trying to kill us
(2) So we must kill them first so they can't.
(3) Bang bang bang bang bang!

There is no bullshit self-doubt or moral ambiguity, no wrestling with weighty philosophical questions, no self-guessing or self-recrimination, just a simple determination to survive.

Embracing Dhimmitude

This sect of Orthodox Jews always shows up at rallies of the extreme Left. You will also see them at any public protest in favor of Islam, Muslims, Palestinians and against Israel.

The picture at the left of these Dhimmi Jews was taken at a recent Leftist/Muslim demonstration in London. I have edited the signs so their intended meaning is clearer. In the words of Dan Rather you could say the signs are "fake but accurate."  Unfortunately, the originals are no longer posted online.  However, I have added some other pictures of this same sect below, to show them for what they are:  cowards and enablers of tyranny and traitors to the cause of Israel.

Several writers have described how dhimmis, in order to secure favor from their Muslim oppressors, have often sought "common ground" with the Muslims so as to be seen as non-threatening and more deserving of mercy. I think this sect of Jews is a good example of that.

According to Robert Spencer in his book Onward Muslim Soldiers, Christians in Muslim lands often tried to curry favor with their Muslim oppressors. Spencer writes the Christians "tried to integrate themselves into Islamic society by being anti-Zionist." The orthodox Jews in the photograph are applying the same strategy. If they are sufficiently anti-Zionist, maybe the ferocious Muslims won't kill them.

Spencer writes that the dhimmi mindset continues for Christians in many parts of the Middle East. He writes "Christian communities native to the Middle East today exhibit the scars of centuries of inferiorization and marginalization. They constitute living relics of the ravages of a system that, although technically abolished in many modern Arab states, continues on the level of official as well as well as popular attitudes and practices."

This same principle also would apply to Jews living in the Middle East, as Christians and Jews are no different to Islamic governments. They are both "people of the book," subject to the same marginlization under Sharia law.

Dhimmis on Display
Neo-dhimmis or not, the Jewish sect in the picture are morally reprehensible. They are giving moral support to the Islamic fanatics who have killed thousands of Jews in Israel and are continuing to kill them. They may think they are saving their own sorry butts from jihad, but they do so at the expense of innocent Jewish life in Israel. Disgusting!

Note: I tried to find a good definition of dhimmitude on the web, but they seem to be generalities with no specifics or examples.

Dhimmitude is a condition of subservience granted to "people of the book" (POB) (Christians and Jews) who are conquered by Muslim armies. The POB are required to sign a contract by which they may continue to draw breath in their own conquered homeland. If they fail to live up to the contract, jihad may resume and the dhimmis (people living under dhimmitude) may be put to death or sold into slavery.

The dhimmi contract generally included the following:
1. Dhimmis live in a second class condition within the society they inhabit.
2. Dhimmis are not allowed to vote or hold public office.
We Demand Slavery Now!
3. Dhimmis must pay a steep tax, called the Jihza, and do so under humiliating conditions: they must pay the tax in person where they are either spit on or slapped. The tax is a heavy financial burden, but if you can't pay it, you're dead. Some dhimmis who couldn't pay were forced to turn over their children as payment. The children were then raised as Muslims.
4. Dhimmis must dress differently than Muslims, e.g. with broad cloth belts, shoes of different color on opposite feet, or no shoes at all, and must shear their forelocks (the front part of their hair) so their dhimmi status is obvious.
5. Dhimmis must give way to Muslims on the sidewalk or street.
6. Dhimmis must give up their seat in any public place if a Muslim wishes to sit.
7. Dhimmis cannot build a house that is higher than Muslim houses in his neighborhood.
8. Dhimmis can only work in menial jobs like street sweeping or manual labor.
9. Dhimmis cannot renovate their churches or synagogues, so when they fall into disrepair they continue to deteriorate.
10. Dhimmis cannot display any symbol of their religion in public, like a cross, nor ring church bells or sing too loudly in their churches or synagogues lest they offend Muslims.
11. Dhimmis must house and feed any Muslim who passes their door for three days.
12. Dhimmis cannot prevent any of their family members from converting to Islam.
13. Dhimmis cannot attempt to convert any Muslim to their religion.
14. Dhimmi men cannot marry Muslim women, but Muslim men can marry Dhimmi women.
15. Dhimmis cannot be witnesses in court against Muslims.
16. Dhimmis cannot own or carry any weapons.
17. Dhimmis cannot fight with or injure any Muslim, even in self defense, under penalty of death.
18. Dhimmis are subject to execution for apostasy against the Prophet or the Qur'an. (This provision was often abused. When a Muslim wanted a dhimmi's land or house, he simply had to state the dhimmi had insulted the Prophet. Since a Muslim's word was always accepted over that of a dhimmi, the dhimmi's unjust execution or imprisonment was assured.)
19. In many cases, dhimmi children are not allowed to attend state schools or universities.

Once the dhimmi community fails to abide by these rules, they are subject to death, banishment or enslavement. The Armenian genocide in the early 20th century began after Armenians appealed to England to help ease their dhimmi status. The Turkish government considered this a breach of their dhimmi contract and proceeded to slaughter them (about 1.5 million Armenian dhimmis died.)

Through the ages dhimmis have often been murdered in mass by Muslim riots, or had their homes burned. Their existence has been fraught with high anxiety due to their status as social outcasts and their subjection to sudden violence or other oppression.

Is a condition of dhimmitude in your future? Yes, if Iran's leaders have anything to say about it. Muslims can give you three choices, and only three choices, under Islamic law: (1) convert to Islam and become a Muslim, (2) be killed or (3) accept dhimmi status.

We can adopt a fourth choice: determined resistance against this evil. Which will you choose?

Toadies for Terrorists:

One more Photoshopped picture. Why? Because I'm not through picking on suicidal Orthodox Dhimmi Jews who support Hamas and oppose Israel.

The Ahmadinejad Solution

President Ahmadinejad (pronounced akmak...oh, just clear your throat and hock a loogie, it sounds sorta like that) announced today that the solution to the Lebanaon crisis is "the destruction of Israel."

My initial, temperate and considered analysis of this suggestion is simple. Over my dead body, you Iranian fruitcake! Take your stupid religion and your absurd prophet and your evil Qur'an and SHOVE 'EM WHERE THE SUN DON'T SHINE.

But then I thought, hmm, am I really being helpful here? President Fuzzyface has offered a solution and have I really "dialogued" with him in a sincere, team effort to frankly discuss our mutual concerns over the future of Israel, or if you prefer, Palestine? Couldn't we have a civilized discussion over a nice bowl of hummis and come to some mutually agreeable, win-win agreement?

NO, WHAT, ARE YOU NUTS? The man's a LUNATIC. Besides, President Bush hasn't signed the power of attorney I need to speak for him yet. I'm sure it will be coming any day now.

In any case, do look at the graphic above for Stogie's down-to-earth, practical solution to Iranian supported terrorism in the Middle East. (Do ya think I'll win the Nobel Peace Prize?)

Moonbats in Blackface

Little Green Footballs ran a story yesterday on a Huffington Post article by Jane Hamsher that denigrates Joe Lieberman. Lieberman, a Senator from Connecticut, is one of the last of the sane Democrats. Because of that, he is fighting his own party for his political life. A leftwinger named Ned Lamont has mounted a strong challenge to Lieberman in the Democrat primary election.

Moonbat Hamsher's otherwise forgettable article was accompanied by a Photoshopped picture of Lieberman in blackface. I assume this was an attempt to cast aspersions on Lieberman's qualifications and not an early observance of black history month (especially since the latter occurs in February).

I find this racial reference ironic, since those two authentic negative stereotypes, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, are supporting Lieberman's opponent.

Was Hamsher (in childhood I once raised hamshers as pets) appealing to ugly racial stereotypes in an effort to insult Lieberman? Hamsher denies it. An AP photo of her below illustrates her response to these charges.

Ms. Hamsher then invited the press corps over to her log cabin for pancakes.

Vittles Chomper Adoption Finalized!

This morning Mrs. Chomper and I met our son Cohiba, his wife and children, and our co-grandparents at the Podunk County Courthouse. We were there for a happy reason: to see the judge put the final stamp on Cohiba & Wife's adoption of Vittles Chomper.

Vittles (whose original name was Kimchee Bokchoy) came over from South Korea last September to join the Chompers family. At first I wasn't crazy about the idea of adoption. We Chompers have always opted for home-grown brats rather than the expensive imported variety. However, I soon learned the error of my views. Vittles is now 17 months old, with soft black hair and dark eyes and a mouth full of tiny white teeth. I don't think I have ever loved anyone or anything more than I love her.

Vittles seems quite drawn to Grandma Chomper (my wife). Maybe it's because they're both Asian and the same color. Vittles said to Grandma, "Goo goo gurgle gurple burp!" which is Korean baby talk for "Where'd we get all these honkies? Are they lost?"

We found our son Cohiba waiting outside the courthouse. He said to me, "C'mon Pop, we're gonna get the pink slip on this kid!" (A "pink slip" in California refers to the title document to a car.)

After the Judge stamped the final paper and shouted "Sold American!" we retired to the local Denny's for breakfast.

Vittles, true to her name, put away a short stack in short order. Cohiba said of her masticating proclivities, "She's a chomper!" I replied, "She's a Chomper indeed!"

Vittles' mom, Bonbon Chomper, is studying the Korean language so that when Vittles learns to talk, mom will be able to understand her.

Mom is blonde, but then you knew that.

Rock Song from Israel!

This rock song from Israel will cheer you up and brighten your day! Unless, of course, you are partial to Hezbollah. Big hat tip to my buddy Guido for showing me how to embed a video in my blog.


Considering how good I am at summarizing the news, I thought I'd better add another Photoshopped graphic. FAST.

See the original photo here.

The War Continues

It's obvious that my blog is not one of the many that simply summarize and repeat the news of the day. For one thing, that takes work, and there are many other blogs who do it a lot better, e.g. Little Green Footballs, Michelle Malkin, Infidel Bloggers Alliance, Islamic Evil and (especially) Atlas Shrugs. (Another often overlooked gem is The Squiggler blog. Check it out.)

Nevertheless, here's one of my rare takes on the news of the day:

1. Pat Buchanan, that transparent old Bigot, has written another article criticizing Israel. He sounds just like any Leftist pacifist appeaser when it comes to Israel's efforts at self-defense. His diatribe mentions no atrocity thrown at Israel and one might get the impression that the Israelis are whack jobs who spontaneously attack Arabs and target kids without cause or provocation. Buchanan ought to start writing for the Daily KOS where more people share his views.

2. Fidel Castro appears ready to croak and Cubans in Miami are celebrating in the streets. This is indeed significant news for the West. Do you realize what this means? We may finally be able to get Cuban cigars again!!

3. Bloggers have once again done the work that the mainstream media should be doing but isn't, doing research and uncovering the truth amidst Muslim lies. The Qana controversy, in which a building bombed by Israel collapsed and allegedly killed a number of children, has been shown to be largely fraudulent. A Hezbollah operative uses dead children for props for its willing accomplices in the MSM, who report the Muslim propaganda like the dutiful little lapdogs they are. Greatest domestic media enemy is CNN, who seems to be trying to compete with Al Jazeera for militant Muslim viewers.

4. That old goat Jimmy Carter wrote an article in the Washington Post blaming the Israeli-Muslim conflict on Israel. He and Pat Buchanan ought to run for President and Vice President...of Syria!

In spite of the self-delusion, ignorance, appeasement and antisemitism of the Left, let us hope Israel will ignore their stupidity and continue its war on Hezbollah. In spite of everything, Israel should concentrate on one thing: FINISHING THE JOB.

It's interesting to note that Israel goes out of its way to avoid killing civilians, dropping leaflets for example, warning of coming attacks. Hezbollah goes out of its way to use civilians (including children) as human shields, physically preventing them from leaving the targeted area, knowing full well that Israel is far more decent and humane than they are. Then, once its human shields have been killed by air strikes, Hezbollah further profanes the bodies by using them as propaganda tools.

Good and Evil cannot be more clearly demonstrated in this war. Buchanan and Carter, the mainstream media and the Left have proudly garbed themselves in the robes of the latter, and deserve the contempt of decent people everywhere.
