What the War on Terror is Really About – GRAPHIC WARNING!

Then, if you can, watch this.

Don’t ever forget.

Jimmy Carter, but with bosoms

Notice they are not “heaving” (like the rest of us).

Honestly, you can’t make stuff like this up. And Sorry, I just can’t help myself on this one! The presumptuousness of this woman is incredible. Evidently there’s this “Presidential Bust” of Hillary that’s been made, because…because…because, of course, it’s a foregone conclusion she will win in 2008. (Ack! Gak! Hairball!!). The Anchoress concurs the opinion that this just is just, …well…, downright icky, and includes links to others who feel the same…

Someone pick me up off the floor. I can’t breathe from the laughing…..

There’s a Freudian slip in there somewhere… More. An uncanny resemblance. And you know, there would have to be a bumpersticker!

We Are All Jews Now

Some day, I would just love to meet Alexandra and take her to lunch. What a fabulous brain to pick over a bottle of wine and a plate of yummy munchies, all full of carbs!

The last few days, she has waxed over Israel – you’ll just have to read it all. The posts are so interlinked in her usual subtle way – the perfect illustrations of just how interrelated and tangled our world is now.

The Saudis begin to realize that a Middle East with no Hezbollah is a Middle East that will continue to drink the gazillions of Western dollars for oil.

Whilst we may be confused about the Democrats, we all know where our Thug-In-Chief stands. His latest broadside on Sunday says it all: “By attacking Lebanon, the Zionist regime triggered its own extinction.” Why are we not surprised? It is of course what he was hoping would happen when he ordered Hezbollah to attack Israel on July 12th. Memri explains the relationship for those who still doubt that such order was given by the Iranian Mullahs.

The ties between Iran and Hizbullah are an open-ended religious and strategic symbiosis.

Hizbullah is not an independent Lebanese organization. It is part and parcel of the Iranian state, and Iran sees in Hizbullah “one of the mainstays of its strategic security.” Hizbullah is “Iran’s first line of defense against Israel” and the West. One of Hizbullah’s founders, Subhi Al-Tufeili, stated in an interview that “Hizbullah’s leadership is Velayat-e-Faqih – that is, Ali Khamenei.”

For these reasons, Iran was even willing to commit itself to a joint military pact with Syria in order to assure the steady flow of weapons to Hizbullah. The agreement was signed one month before the outbreak of the war, and the Iranian and Syrian defense ministers announced on the occasion of the signing that “Iran sees Syria’s security as its own.”

There can be no doubt for any serious observer that this is so.

Russia continues to lie through what teeth they have. Then when they think no one is looking, they smile in the mirror at the marvelous chaos they have aided and abetted.

Mark Steyn says:

A few years back, when folks talked airily about “the Middle East peace process” and “a two-state solution,” I used to say that the trouble was the Palestinians saw a two-state solution as an interim stage en route to a one-state solution. I underestimated Islamist depravity. As we now see in Gaza and southern Lebanon, any two-state solution would be an interim stage en route to a no-state solution.

In one of the most admirably straightforward of Islamist declarations, Hussein Massawi, the Hezbollah leader behind the slaughter of U.S. and French forces 20 years ago, put it this way:

“We are not fighting so that you will offer us something. We are fighting to eliminate you.” […]

But Saudi-Egyptian-Jordanian opportunism on Palestine has caught up with them: It’s finally dawned on them that a strategy of consciously avoiding resolution of the “Palestinian question” has helped deliver Gaza, and Lebanon and Syria, into the hands of a regime that’s a far bigger threat to the Arab world than the Zionist Entity. Cairo and Co. grew so accustomed to whining about the Palestinian pseudo-crisis decade in decade out that it never occurred to them that they might face a real crisis one day: a Middle East dominated by an apocalyptic Iran and its local enforcers, in which Arab self-rule turns out to have been a mere interlude between the Ottoman sultans and the eternal eclipse of a Persian nuclear umbrella.

Alexandra sees the light at the end of the tunnel….

The writing on the wall is clear: Thug-In-Chief Ahmadinejad with his co-conspirators in tow is gearing up to issue tactical nuclear arms to his proxy army Hezbollah to annihilate Israel, thus being able to evade direct responsibility and holding up innocent Lebanese civilians as human shields against any nuclear retaliation.

The lines in the sand have been drawn…We are all Jews now.

Bread and Circuses

Cynthia al-McKinney evidently smells the coffee and what is a heavenly aroma to the rest of us, downright reeks to her. What better way to calm the mob in her district than to stage a spectacle? Bread and Circuses for all! Classical appeasement at it’s finest.

“I am pleased that Ms. McKinney won’t be missing in action this time and has finally agreed to discuss her record and her conduct,” [Hank] Johnson said. “Fourth district voters have many questions and deserve a debate.”

Oh, by the way, McKinney did resurface in DC on Monday, making one vote late Monday evening. But where was she Tuesday? Seems to me she’s not too interesting in KEEPING that job.

The Georgia Democrat has missed 28 of the past 29 votes in the House.

When Being UnReal is Fun

There’s a tradition at the North Avenue Trade School (aka Georgia Tech) that begs a parallel with a current news story. Sometimes it’s hard for nerds to have a little fun. George Burdell has been enrolled since the late 1920’s, earned several degrees, owns a on-campus shop, has season tickets, writes articles in the Technique and more. The ultimate Energizer Bunny. He should be what, 100-ish, now? Past the point of the wobbly but distinguished, bow-tied and straw-hatted alumni you see tottering around at football games. But here’s the deal – he’s not real. He started as a campus prank that lives on to today. He’s a connection between the newest freshman and the oldest alumni you can find. And he doesn’t hurt anyone or anything.

Now step over to the darker side of character creation. Who is George Harleigh? According to numerous sources, he is attributed with the following quote:

“The very future of this Republic may well rest on whether or not anyone can, or will, stop George W. Bush.”

But who is he? The Anchoress leads us to the rabbit hole, it’s up to us to plunge down and try to solve this mystery. Classical Values blog is trying to locate the fellow and a few facts about him.

“George Harleigh” is quoted in innumerable web sites, and he’s a retired Political Science professor who worked in both the Nixon and Reagan administrations. I feel like a total idiot, because I’m unable to find out anything about him. His name doesn’t appear in the indexes of any of my books on Nixon or Reagan, I can’t find a Wikipedia entry on him, and I can’t even ascertain the university where he taught.

Read it all. And all the links, too. After a good bit of digging, another name appears, Doug Thompson, …”a self-described journalist [“newspaperman”] who runs the Capitol Hill Blue web site.” Turns out this Thompson fellow been conned yet again, but….what about the damage caused by countless websites linking to his material? I thought one of the cardinal rules of journalism was CHECK OUT YOUR SOURCES.

My….what a tangled web we weave. And all to discredit one man, our President.

But you won’t see anything of this in the MSM, because it might cause their hypnotized readers/watchers/listeners to ask THEM if they check THEIR sources.

Humph.

Ahem, A Major Award

How cool is THIS?

A Major Award

A Rare Opportunity, Indeed

In the beginning, there was God. Later on, there was Israel. And thus commenced the fighting. Everyone wanted their land, their water, their women, their cities, their sheep, their lions and tiger and bears (oh my!), their money, their jewelry, their gold fillings, their bodies for experiments, their blood, their annihilation. And now, Israel is fighting again, against not only a neighbor, but the terrorist culture within that neighbor. Sorry, Lebanon, one bad apple DOES spoil this barrel. And if the complete and utter destruction of Hezbollah includes the complete and utter destruction of you, then so be it. Take one for Team Civilization.

Charles Krauthammer over at Real Clear Politics writes an excellent post on The Only Exit Strategy (read the whole thing).

There is crisis and there is opportunity. Amid the general wringing of hands over the seemingly endless and escalating Israel-Hezbollah fighting, everyone asks: Where will it end?

The answer, blindingly clear, begins with understanding that this crisis represents a rare, perhaps irreproducible, opportunity….

…Lebanon’s independence and security are forfeit so long as Hezbollah — a lawless, terrorist, private militia answering to Syria and Iran — occupies south Lebanon as a rogue mini-state.

Then there are the Arabs, beginning with the Lebanese who want Hezbollah out. The majority of Lebanese — Christian, Druze, Sunni Muslim and secular — bitterly resent their country being hijacked by Hezbollah and turned into a war zone. And in the name of what Lebanese interest? Israel evacuated every square inch of Lebanon six years ago.

The other Arabs have spoken, too. In a stunning development, the 22-member Arab League criticized Hezbollah for provoking the current crisis. It is unprecedented for the Arab League to criticize any Arab party while it is actively engaged in hostilities with Israel. But the Arab states know that Hezbollah, a Shiite militia in the service of Persian Iran, is a threat not just to Lebanon but to them as well. Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan have openly criticized Hezbollah for starting a war on what is essentially Iran’s timetable (to distract attention from Iran’s pending referral to the Security Council for sanctions over its nuclear program). They are far more worried about Iran and its proxies than about Israel.

Even the most arrogrant French uberweenie could see this pattern. And now NutJob has his smokescreen to hide behind while he works his nuclear physicists 24/7. A bomb to end all bombs to kill the infidels – who cares if it takes half of his own countrymen with them?

Michelle’s Shot of the Day is a sad, sad picture that speaks volumes. Not only are these thugs willing to use children to further their sick ambitions, now they are passing out missile launchers to grandmas. Sad, Sad, Sad.

Israel has one of the best air forces on this planet. Go ahead and use it. With impunity.

YES!!

Cynthia al-McKinney is forced into a run-off in her primary. Nationally, people were watching and hoping, as well. While Daddy McKinney and other miscellaneous hangers-ons poohed-poohed the run-off as only a bump in the road, many constituents of her district saw a vote for her opponent more as a vote against her.

Anne Dishman of Decatur, who said she voted for Johnson, reflected voter discontent with McKinney. “I don’t know a lot about him [Johnson],” Dishman said as she left her polling place at Holy Trinity Parish. “It’s most important that Cynthia is not voted back in her office.”

Lance Blair of Decatur also supported Johnson. “I preferred his tone, which would be more advantageous for the district,” Blair said. “Right or wrong, Washington has tuned McKinney out.”

So…..if “Washington has tuned McKinney out”, how can she be an effective representative of her district?? From what I can tell, Hank Johnson seems like a decent enough fellow; standing up for folks who for years have been bamboozled by smoke and mirrors. While I don’t live in the district, I may send him a dollar or two just to help out in the McKinney Final Solution. Like most Georgians, we think she is a disgrace to our great State.

It brings to mind an excellent early-summer post at AmericanDigest – “I Will Vote for Best, Always.” If his Russian house cleaner gets it, what’s up with 47% of the Georgia 4th District turnout?

UPDATE: After dancing the Electric Slide with the twelve supporters I saw televised at her HQ around 10 pm, Georgia’s Biggest disgrace sat down to some pizza with Cindy Sheehan and Medea Benjamin. Cindy looks totally gauntified after 16 days of her hunger strike, don’t you think?

UPDATE II: Neal’s Cynthia Watch today reports that not only has Cynthia dodged debates in her own home town, she’s AWOL from her JOB at Congress as well:

… the latest news on the activities and comments of The Cutest Little Jihadist in Congress as we move toward the primary runoff. Our pal Jamie Dupree tells us that Cynthia has been a no-show this week in Washington. She did have an official leave-of-absence for votes cast on Monday and Tuesday, but she was supposed to be back at work, representing the people of Georgia’s 4th Congressional District, on Wednesday. She wasn’t. She wasn’t there Thursday either. This week she has missed 19 votes on the House floor. One of the votes she missed was the attempt to override Bush’s veto of the stem cell bill. She also missed a vote on a constitutional amendment on gay marriage.There is no word on whether or not Cynthia will return to Washington next week. Who knows? Maybe she sees the handwriting on the wall. Maybe she knows that she has a slim chance of prevailing in the primary runoff and has decided to start her retirement early.

In the meantime, those evil Diebold machines are just waiting for her to pack her bags.

Can a machine be a racist?

The Unseen Hand

I, for one, stand with Israel. It is not illegal to protect your sovereignty; to draw a line in the sand and say ENOUGH.

After all, God gave the land to THEM. And He’s never done it for anyone else.

America would do well to sit up and pay attention.

Dan Blather

More hollow deception from the ol’blowhard.

If he retired quietly to some farm somewhere, he might make a comeback with the next generation who wouldn’t remember a thing about his misadventure with a word processor. “Oh, Look, Honey, it’s Dan Blather. He’s that wizened expert that XYZ News uses for background on the First Terrorist War. Isn’t he cute with his glasses and bow-tie? Well, let’s leave him to his cups and his papers. Looks like he’s busy….” But nooooooo, he’s got to parade his bruised ego out for all to see and beg for a new show (there is a dreadful rumor about) or column or something else. Well, boooohoooo. The DimWitDems just lap it up. Pathetic.

Oh Wait! Dancing with the Stars is calling!

Reality Disconnect

There seems to be an abnormal disjunction of things these days. Brain malfunctions abound…

For example, take the verbal threats (and denial of service attacks) directed toward Jeff Goldstein at Protein Wisdom. Seems a Wacademic dislikes his blog. Lady, get a grip. Holy Fool summarizes my thoughts the best:

Anyone that would implicitly threaten an opponent’s child has forsaken the right to be considered civilized. She flirts with sins that cry out to heaven. May she come to repent of her evil and rejoin the society she has abandoned.

Michelle is even nice enough to give her a reward. The Anchoress weighs in as well.

TIME, the magazine that picks genocidal maniacs for Man of the Year (ad nauseum), has become the must-read glossy Muslim Apologetics text of the fashion season. Diverse fashions, my foot. It’s dhimmitude and oppression in my book.

Shhhh… (delinked) don’t tell the BBC I said dhimmitude. Those Skye news guys with the thick necktie knots will show up in my front yard.

The NYT prints government secrets , even after the government says NO. And now, like a child fresh out of time out, (delinked) they are at it again.

The Washington Post gives (delinked) op-ed space to a known terrorist. Captain’s Quarter’s unravels it for us political retards.

Cindy Sheehan’s idea of a hunger strike includes coffee, ice cream, protein shakes… So hows about some fried chicken and wateeeee-mellll-lon to go with your moonbat casserole?

Fjordman, via Gates of Vienna writes on the New Marie Antoinettes. For those who have attended government schools, Marie was a former Queen of France in the late 1700’s whose reign ended badly. While lauded during her youth for her beauty, she did not seem to have inherited any of her mother’s acumen (she was the Empress Maria Theresa of Austria). When the French peasants were literally starving in the streets, she reported quipped “Let them eat cake.” Her husband’s rule of France (or lack thereof) spiralled down into war, more famine, the fall of the French monarchy – but lots of fabulous French Revolutionary musicals.

And finally (since we’re on the subject of desserts not usually found on the usual hunger strike menu), the Dixie Chicks whine that their comeback album/tour has not be accepted with thunderous applause and skyrocketing sales. Well, DUH. What do you expect when you piss off your base? Do you think C&W fans are flaming liberals like yourself? Natalie, sweetie, get a grip. Lance at The Muslim Question says it best:

Message to Natalie – SHUT YOUR CAKE HOLE!

And I just love the cartoon…. ROFLMAO

Humans 1, Rats 0

In the lives of children, pumpkins can turn into coaches, mice and rats into human beings. When we grow up, we learn that it’s far more common for human beings to turn into rats. (Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire)

Yesterday, in the crumbling gotham that some still call Atlanta, a story came to light that warms the heart. The Coca-Cola secret recipe (kinda like the Colonel’s secret recipe or the gold in Fort Knox) was saved by none other than it’s rival PepsiCo.

In May, a letter appeared at Pepsi’s headquarters, postmarked from the Bronx and signed by “Dirk,” who claimed to be a high-level executive at Coke. The letter offered “very detailed and confidential information.” Pepsi turned the letter over to Coke executives, who then called the FBI.

The real heroes in this story are the people at Pepsi who turned the letter over to Coke & the FBI. They deserve the credit for showing integrity and honesty. In the past, such traits were expected of America’s lions of business and commerce. Fair dealings with all; your word is as good as your handshake. In the current business and global environment, taking such stands are perceived as weakness and an opportune time for your competitor to strike.

Said Pepsi spokesman Dave DeCecco: “We only did what any responsible company would do. Competition can sometimes be fierce, but it also must be fair and legal.”

Fair and legal. How interesting….I wonder if the NYT ever considers that as criteria for publication? I doubt it; rats don’t have alot of brain power for deductive reasoning. As Captain’s Quarters puts it in his excellent post yesterday:

The Times simply cannot be trusted to tell the truth even when our enemies commit such blatant actions against us, and instead continue to use their energy to serve their intensely partisan interests.

Let’s go a small step further – how about Fair and Legal and Good for America? Real heroes aren’t afraid to stand up for Truth, Justice and the American Way. We’ll hear alot about the scoundrels who tried to sell the information in the next few weeks, but the real story of goodness will be buried in section D, if it’s even published at all.

BRAVO PEPSI! Give those guys a cape!

My Independence Day

This says it all:

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on!

I have seen Him in the watchfires of a hundred circling camps;
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence in the dim and flaring lamps,
His day is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on!

In the beauty of the lilies, Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, Let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on!
