A Bush impersonator stands by and gives the "what Bush is really thinking" commentary as W speaks. Brilliant!
"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity."

The bill, which was passed by a Senate committee Tuesday, would require schools to buy textbooks ``accurately'' portraying ``the sexual diversity of our society.'' More controversially, it could require that students hear history lessons on ``the contributions of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender to the economic, political, and social development of California and the United States of America.''I mean, imagine that! Government telling people to not work and walk out of school!!! To support the whims of foreigners???
WASHINGTON (AFP) - The US military will take an expanded role in the US global "war on terror" under new plans which have reportedly been approved by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.Note well: "Outside" of the current warzones!
The plans call for a significantly expanded role for Special Operations troops in operations to combat terrorism outside of war zones such as Iraq and Afghanistan, the Washington Post report said quoting unnamed officials.
The plan, developed over three years by the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) in Tampa, Florida, increases military involvement in areas traditionally handled by the Central Intelligence Agency and the State Department, the report said.That is significant. We have seen over these years how both State and the CIA have attempted to undercut the Administration at nearly every turn.
The ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee complained on Sunday that the fired CIA employee who leaked classified information to the Washington Post about top secret interrogations of al Qaeda suspects was being held to a higher standard than President Bush.Look at the laws, you idiot! There isn't some OTHER President with the "real" power to declassify things!
Asked if she saw similarities between Bush’s decision to share declassified intelligence on Iraq with the media - and CIA leaker Mary McCarthy, Rep. Jane Harman told “Fox News Sunday: “You bet I do.”
“While leaks are wrong, I think it is totally wrong for our president, in secret, to selectively declassify certain information and to empower people in his White House to leak it to favored reporters so they can discredit political enemies,” she griped.
SOCOM has dispatched small teams of Army Green Berets and other Special Operations troops to US embassies in about 20 countries in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Latin America, where they do operational planning and intelligence gathering, the paper said.Incredible!
The plan reportedly gives the military leadership leeway to inform -- rather than win the approval of -- the US ambassador in a country before conducting military operations in that country.
A second plan is focused specifically on Al-Qaeda and associated movements, including more than a dozen groups spread across the Middle East, Central Asia, Southeast Asia and Africa, according to the report.The only question becomes, now that we've got a juicy target list, why wait for an attack?
The third plan sets out how the military can both disrupt and respond to another major terrorist strike on the United States, The Post said.
It includes annexes that offer options for the military to retaliate quickly against specific groups, individuals or state sponsors depending on who is believed to be behind an attack.
SOCOM has since 2003 been in charge of military planning for the war on terror, declared after the September 11, 2001 strikes. Its annual budget has grown 60 percent to eight billion dollars.
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - More than 80,000 people marched in silence through Brussels on Sunday in memory of a teenager stabbed to death by two [Muslim] suspects of North African origin in Belgium's biggest protest in 10 years, police said.The story tries hard to sweep the real issues under the rug. This is not some vague protest against "crime" in general, but about crime by islamic invaders.
The daily Le Parisien, in an extensive report on Sunday on Villiers' charges about Islamist radicals at Charles de Gaulle airport, quoted officials saying the problem was minimal and suspicious workers were kept under surveillance.So they actually ADMIT there are islamist radicals working the airport, but it's "only" 122 of them!
Aware of the book's imminent publication, Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy and Justice Minister Dominique Perben toured the airport on Thursday and said only 122 of about 83,000 ground staff were being watched.
"There aren't 122, there are hundreds," said Villiers, quoting what he said were top secret police reports he used as the basis for his book and challenging Sarkozy to publish them.
Villiers said Islam was incompatible with the country's democratic system because he said it demanded loyalty to the ummah (world Muslim community) over any individual state, wanted to impose sharia Islamic law and promoted jihad, or holy war.Sounds good to me.
"I think there are moderate Muslims, they are even the large majority, but I do not believe there is a moderate Islam," he said. "I do not think Islam is compatible with the French republic."
Saying France had to fight what he called its Islamisation, he said Paris should stop all mosque construction, impose a citizen's charter demanding the strict separation of religion and state and freedom to change religions and demand strict respect for the equality of men and women.
It should also ban all Islamist organizations suspected of links to terrorism and expel any persons threatening the security of the French population.
ISLAM: What the West Needs to KnowThe Main Idea of the Film is
An examination of Islam, violence, and the fate of the non-Muslim world.
Virtually every major Western leader has over the past several years expressed the view that Islam is a peaceful religion and that those who commit violence in its name are fanatics who misinterpret its tenets. This claim, while widely circulated, rarely attracts serious public examination. Relying primarily on Islam’s own sources, this documentary demonstrates that Islam is a violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the destruction or subjugation of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government.We are told,
The film premiered at the American Film Renaissance’s Hollywood Film Festival in January.Watch for it!
Coming this summer.
The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (And the Crusades)
by Robert Spencer
War-torn Iraq has about 26 million residents, a peaceful California perhaps now 35 million. The former is a violent and impoverished landscape, the latter said to be paradise on Earth. But how you envision either place to some degree depends on the eye of the beholder and is predicated on what the daily media appear to make of each.Many would love to see the Iraq project fail, with the MSM's defeatism never more apparent with headlines along the lines of as "Attacks continue despite selection of Prime Minister", to create feelings of futility, as if magically they would all suddenly stop. That point of view is all the more infantile as the gloominess is largely of their own determined making, as VDH shows above.
As a fifth-generation Californian, I deeply love this state, but still imagine what the reaction would be if the world awoke each morning to be told that once again there were six more murders, 27 rapes, 38 arsons, 180 robberies, and 360 instances of assault in California — yesterday, today, tomorrow, and every day. I wonder if the headlines would scream about “Nearly 200 poor Californians butchered again this month!”
How about a monthly media dose of “600 women raped in February alone!” Or try, “Over 600 violent robberies and assaults in March, with no end in sight!” Those do not even make up all of the state’s yearly 200,000 violent acts that law enforcement knows about.
Much is made of the inability to patrol Iraq’s borders with Iran, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Turkey. But California has only a single border with a foreign nation, not six. Yet over 3 million foreigners who snuck in illegally now live in our state. Worse, there are about 15,000 convicted alien felons incarcerated in our penal system, costing about $500 million a year. Imagine the potential tabloid headlines: “Illegal aliens in state comprise population larger than San Francisco!” or “Drugs, criminals, and smugglers given free pass into California!”
Every year, over 4,000 Californians die in car crashes — nearly twice the number of Americans lost so far in three years of combat operations in Iraq. In some sense, then, our badly maintained roads, and often poorly trained and sometimes intoxicated drivers, are even more lethal than Improvised Explosive Devices. Perhaps tomorrow’s headline might scream out at us: “300 Californians to perish this month on state highways! Hundreds more will be maimed and crippled!”
So is California comparable to Iraq? Hardly. Yet it could easily be sketched by a reporter intent on doing so as a bank rupt, crime-ridden den with murderous highways, tens of thousands of inmates, with wide-open borders.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Violent clashes and mass protests erupted Saturday across the West Bank and Gaza Strip between followers of the militant group Hamas and Fatah rivals, after a Hamas leader accused Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of treachery.Watch for this to escalate.
Whichever one of you has committed no sin may throw the first stone at her. Where are they? Is there no one left to condemn you? Well, then, I do not condemn you either. Go, but do not sin again.Now, this second example, which is six centuries "more advanced"...
Sahi Muslim, Book 017, 4206...Just like they still do today, following the prophet's Holy teachings!
There came to him (the Holy Prophet) a woman from Ghamid and said: Allah's Messenger, I have committed adultery, so purify me. He (the Holy Prophet) turned her away. On the following day she said: Allah's Messenger, Why do you turn me away? Perhaps, you turn me away as you turned away Ma'iz. By Allah, I have become pregnant. He said: Well, if you insist upon it, then go away until you give birth to (the child). When she was delivered she came with the child (wrapped) in a rag and said: Here is the child whom I have given birth to. He said: Go away and suckle him until you wean him. When she had weaned him, she came to him (the Holy Prophet) with the child who was holding a piece of bread in his hand. She said: Allah's Apostle, here is he as I have weaned him and he eats food. He (the Holy Prophet) entrusted the child to one of the Muslims and then pronounced punishment.
And she was put in a ditch up to her chest and he commanded people and they stoned her. Khalid b Walid came forward with a stone which he flung at her head and there spurted blood on the face of Khalid and so he abused her...Then giving command regarding her, he (The Holy Prophet) prayed over her and she was buried.
Ancient Book May Be Covered in Human SkinOr, more likely, the thief was dragged away by a Shoggoth.
LONDON - A 300-year-old book that appears to be bound in human skin has been found in northern England, police said Saturday.
The macabre discovery was made on a central street in Leeds, and officers said the ledger may have been dumped following a burglary.
In a brief statement, West Yorkshire police said the ledger, which contained handwriting in black ink, appears to date back to the 1700s, and they appealed to anyone who may be able to help identify the owners of the item to contact authorities.Can't, or won't?
West Yorkshire Police put two photographs of the book on their Web site, but officers were unable on Saturday to answer any questions about it, including the book's subject matter.
