US - Hillary Clinton and the vast left wing conspiracy

This should send a chill down everyone's spine and should have ended any Clinton's political career a long time ago.

Character assassination, left wing enabling press and illegally using FBI files to attack your opponents are just some of the tactics the Democrats use in their lust for power.

As I keep asking, why on earth would anyone vote for a Clinton?

US - Happy Birthday, Monicagate!

Timothy Noah reports.

The name says it all, "Monicagate", as if it was all her fault. Shouldn't it really be called "Clintongate"?

Noah seems to disagree and paints it all as a trap for Clinton, think "vast right wing conspiracy", and tries to downplay the whole affair.

"It was a bummer for all concerned, from its tawdry beginning as an item of Internet gossip to its ambivalent end when Clinton, having become the first president since Andrew Johnson to be impeached by the House, was acquitted by a Senate reluctant to flatter Clinton's infractions by calling them high crimes or misdemeanors."


But of course it wasn't just "internet gossip". Subsequent facts have proven that Bill Clinton did have sex with Lewinsky and lied about it. That's what he was impeached for, lying under oath, that was his high crimes and misdemeanors and not his "infractions" with Monica.

Noah also leaves out Bill Clinton's long list of sex assaults on other women.

Here's another take.

British government clueless about Islamic terrorism

The Daily Mail reports.

These are the same people who claimed terrorism wasn't about one community.

Here's a video that highlights the governments support for extremists.

US - Bill Clinton rages when caught trying to rig vote:video

US - Anti-war groups surrender

Great news for Iraq.

US Judge Dismisses Clinton's attempt at vote rigging

Good for him.

US - "Clinton Treats Blacks Like Monica Lewinsky"

He screwd them too.

US - Hillary Clinton tries to rig Nevada primary

and uses hubby as attack dog.

"Matthews asked politely why the ''at-large'' caucus locations have been challenged by members of the teachers union -- many of them Hillary supporters. (The critics say the Strip location caucuses will give culinary union members an unfair advantage, one other workers don't have, to participate in the Nevada caucuses during their work hours.) Matthews asked Clinton about the perception that the challenges were filed only after the culinary union's recent Obama endorsement. "


There's just one problem with Clinton's argument, the Nevada vote is on Jan 19th - a Saturday. Many people, and most teachers, do no work on Saturday while most casino workers do. So in fact, it was the teachers who had an unfair advantage.

UK - British Muslims forced to marry

Nice to see the BBC shine a light on their favorite religion.

Agencies see good year for Iraq

This from the BBC no less. Don't worry, the BBC do their best to down play the good news.

US - Hillary Clinton election fraud caught on tape



Just one of many crimes the Clinton's have committed.

British honour crime inquiry

This is long over due.

US - "the death of Hillary Clinton's close friend Vince Foster"

As I just said, watch for more of these pigeons to come home to roost.

Here are a couple of snippets but read the whole thing.

"One of his first jobs in the White House was to try to make sense of the Clintons' false tax returns concerning the Whitewater land investment. A note in his hand-writing, found much later, warned that Whitewater was "a can of worms you shouldn't open."


And

"Hillary also insisted she didn't know the "origin of the decision" to remove the employees, and that she "did not direct that any action be taken."

An official report issued seven years later concluded that her statements had been "factually false."


She lied.

And let's not forget that hubby, Bill Clinton was disbarred.

Why does anyone in their right mind want these people back in the White House?

UK - BBC supports terrorists

Just look at these two headlines from the BBC.

When Palestinian terrorists attack, the BBC headline reads Gaza rockets kill two in Israel. No mention in the headline who the attackers are; just "Gaza rockets".

But when Israel defends itself and retaliates, the BBC headline is Israeli Gaza City raid kills 14.

Shouldn't that headline, like the first, then read "Gaza City raid kills 14"?

Why the difference BBC? Because the BBC openly supports terrorists.

After reporting on the "Gaza" rockets attacking Israel, in the second BBC report we are told this:

"It is one of the deadliest days of violence in Gaza in months. Israel launches frequent raids which it says are aimed at preventing rocket fire."


Later we are told this:

"More than 100 Palestinians, most of them militants, are reported to have been killed by Israeli fire in Gaza since Israel and the Palestinian Authority formally relaunched peace talks in late November."


The BBC fails to mention how many innocent Israeli civilians have been killed by Palestinian terrorists.

Add to this the fact that the BBC is on the Taleban's speed dial.

US - Clinton's race card is nothing new

She's been playing the race card for years.

"WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton drew criticism Tuesday for a Martin Luther King Jr. Day speech in which she told a mostly black audience at a Harlem church that Republican leaders have run the House "like a plantation" and the Bush administration will go down as "one of the worst" in U.S. history."


Two years later, almost to the day, Hillary is now getting booed at a similar speech. Why the difference? One word - Obama.

Blacks have begun to speak out against Hillary.

"I don't feel no ways tired. I come too far from where I started from. Nobody told me that the road would be easy. I don't believe He brought me this far," drawled presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton, mimicking black voice to a black audience, at the First Baptist Church of Selma, Alabama. I'm wondering if Mrs. Clinton visits an Indian reservation she might cozy up to them saying, "How! Me not tired. Me come heap long way. Road mighty rough. Sky Spirit no bring me this far." Or, seeking the Asian vote she might say, "I no wray tired. Come too far I started flum. Road berry clooked. Number one Dragon King take me far."
"

Sure she would if she thought it would get her votes.

UK - MUSLIM M&S WORKER REFUSES TO SELL ‘UNCLEAN’ BIBLE BOOK

The Daily Express reports.

"A MUSLIM store worker refused to serve a customer buying a children’s book on Christianity because she said it was “unclean”."


Now if this happened to a Muslim over such a remark about the Koran, there would be rioting, protests and possibly a few deaths.

UK - BBC on terrorists speed dial

No surprise there.

"Elias Wahdat, a stringer for Reuters and BBC news services in Khost province, said that every time the Taliban launch an attack or American troops call in an air strike, he gets a text message.

The Taliban will give its version of what happened, often claiming that American bombs killed civilians. It may take officials with the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan hours to put together a news release for the press. In the meantime, the Taliban version is already circulating."


Here's proof of that.

Here's what I said about this issue 6 months ago.

"Now the BBC doesn't say how the "local people" told them and it could be they got a call as well. But that raises the question of who is actually calling these media outlets and if the area is so remote, how do they have phones? And if people are merely phoning in, how does Reuters or the BBC know they are local? And does local mean Taliban? The answers really don't matter to the BBC or Reuters because the report fits their left wing agendas."


Now we know how the BBC got the story and we now know for sure that the BBC knew it was the Taleban calling. As I said then, the BBC doesn't care it's terrorists calling because it fits their far left wing agenda.

US - The Case Against Hillary Clinton

Again, I'm amazed anyone would vote for a Clinton.

US - Clinton's race problems only beginning

This is going to make a lot of African Americans very angry.

How do you think Detroit’s largely black population is going to react when they go to the polls tomorrow and learn that

(a) Hillary Clinton is on the ballot

(b) Barack Obama is not on the ballot

(c) Write-in votes are not counted?

If the Clintons think they have a potential race problem brewing in the Democratic Party now, they haven’t seen anything yet.


Many are angry already. "Clinton booed at MLK rally in New York"

And it's not just blacks the Clintons are attacking, brown people are going to be upset by this.

UK - 'White flight' from city centres is getting worse

Says the chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

"The phenomenon has been seen in northern cities with a lot of Muslims, London and towns such as Reading and Bournemouth. "


Here's one of the reasons.

"Mosque's plan to broadcast call to prayer from loudspeaker 'will create Muslim ghetto'"

Multiculturalism hasn't just failed, it's made things far worse.

US - The Monica Lewinsky scandal ten years on

Here's more reasons, as if more were needed, not to vote for Hillary Clinton - especially for women. Why on earth would anyone - anyone - want these lying conniving people in the White House?

Gaza rockets kill two in Israel

What? A strip of land launched some rockets?

The headline should read "Palestinian rocket kills Israeli child"

Why does being a Leftie in Australia have such a bad name?

Oh, don't worry Jeana, it's not just Australia where the left has a bad name - it's all over the world.

Australia - Tim Blair has cancer

This is terrible news.

Iraq - 60 killed in anti-Qaeda sweep

and tons of weapons sized.

Iraq - More lies from the Clintons

The list is getting longer.

And note this:

"The Clintons have begun to stage an excellent revival of their honesty-challenged politics again for 2008, after almost a decade had begun to drive the memory of their prevarications from public memory. If the Democrats are foolish enough to nominate her, the entire general election will consist of all the Clintonian dishonesty from Hillary with none of the charm that allowed Bill to win two terms as President."

The sad thing is, the left in America don't care about the Clinton's lies; they just want a Democrat in the White House no matter how bad for the country that might be.

Iraq - "The Democrats’ Fairy Tale "

Kristol in the New York Times. This is why the left went nuts when they hired him. Heheheh.

Iraq - Baghdad motorcycle races

are fun!

US - Hillary Clinton caught lying again

Add this to the I was named after Edmund Hillary and her bogus Bosnian trip.

This weekend on Meet the Press, Clinton claimed she hasn't paid much attention to her alleged "vast right wing conspiracy". Here is what she said on page 5 of the transcript.

"MR. RUSSERT: Back in 1998, a very painful period for you, beginning of the Lewinsky scandal, you said, "This may be the result of a vast right-wing conspiracy." Do you believe that the vast right-wing conspiracy still exists?

SEN. CLINTON: Oh, I don't know. I haven't paid much attention to it for about 10 years. I really don't have any idea."


What a liar. She's been using the imaginary conspiracy on the campaign trail. She used it in New York and New Hampshire.

"So if anybody tells you there is no vast right-wing conspiracy, tell them that New Hampshire has proven it in court," she said."


Hillary Clinton is such a prolific liar a book is being written to document them all. Let's hope it comes out before the election.

Hillary Clinton Researcher Uncovers Tall Tales

There are a lot more than just these.

Bill Maher Mercilessly Slams Hillary's Crying Game

Be sure and watch the video.

My favorite lines. Hillary's always reminding us of how she's been in politics for 35 years and yet she's just now finding her voice. And, there may be candidates you want to have a beer with, but a good cry with?

Canada - Muslims using kangaroo court for censorship

Glenn has a roundup with videos. This is happening all over the western world, jihadists using our laws against us. This shouldn't come as such a shock to everyone as it seems to be. I published Islam's war plan 3 years ago.

US - The New York Times attacks our troops

again!

Muslim Britain is becoming one big no-go area

Note he calls it "Muslim Britain".

Glad to see MSM reporting on this, but I've been reporting on the Islamization of Britain for 3 years now.

US - Clinton's sue to disrupt Las Vegas vote

Dirty tricks are the Clinton's hallmark.

Iraq - Anti-war Soros funded Iraq study

The London Times reports.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. The Wall Street Journal has a much more damning report on the Lancet's fabricated anti war "study". Despite the discrediting, debunking and exposing the far left anti war people behind the "study", the left wing media continue to use it. Imagine that!

Iraq - Economic boost gives hope to Iraqis

The BBC notices the elephant in the room.

Tim Blair

Welcome Tim Blair readers! Australia has a gold mine in Tim.

US - Hillary Clinton made a pact with the devil

Does this explain why she gets so much of the women vote? Why does anyone in their right mind want to go back to this mess?

Friday, January 11, 2008

"BBC reporting reflects a clear bias against Israel"

No surprise there.

Iran - Thompson on the naval confrontation

Scroll down to 9:41 for this.

"Mr. Thompson rocks tonight. Asked about the recent confrontation between United States warships and Iranian speedboats, he suggests casually that if Iran’s Revolutionary Guard becomes more hostile, the Iranians will see those virgins they’ve been looking for."


The Democrats on the other hand, would apologize and promise to inform Iran when US ships plan to sail in international waters again.

Iraq - Anbar Ready for Handover

If the Democrats had had their way this would not be happening. Instead, al Qaeda would be in charge.

Everest hero Edmund Hillary dies

The BBC reports.

In an interesting side note, this is the man Hillary Clinton lied about and claimed she was named after. Just add that to her fabricated Bosnia trip.

Iraq - New Estimate of Violent Deaths Is Lower

Is how the Washington Post report the latest body count study from Iraq.

Of course the BBC choose this headline: "New study says 151,000 Iraqi dead"

This study totally discredits the infamous Lancet study, but the Lancet study was totally debunked at the time anyway.

What's interesting is what the BBC choose to leave out and the Post slips in on page two.

"Violent death" covered shootings, stabbings, bombings and other intentional injuries, and included civilian, military and police deaths but not suicides and traffic fatalities unrelated to roadside bombs."


So this isn't just a study of "civilian" deaths, it includes Iraqi military and police who died defending their country from al Qaeda and other terrorists - and there have been thousands of them.

Also left out is any mention of how many Iraqis have been killed by Iraqis and other foreign fighters.

The reason for these omissions is to implant the idea that US troops are responsible for all these deaths.

UPDATE

The Wall Street Journal reports on the political motivations of the people behind the discredited Lancet report.

US - Drug can reverse Alzheimer's symptoms in minutes'

Let's hope this pans out.

CIA whistle-blower dies in Cuba

That's what the BBC call him.

"He caused outrage by naming former colleagues in a book called Inside the Company: CIA Diary. "


It's one thing to expose, whistle-blow if you will, things that might be illegal. It's treason when you name your country's undercover agents.

One has to wonder, if you accept some peoples assertion that Plame was "outed", why Richard Armitage, the State Deparment official who "outed" her, was never charged with treason; a fact that the special prosecutor knew before he charged anybody with anything. But I digress.

"Philip Agee did not survive surgery for perforated ulcers, his wife said. "


Oops. So much for the BBC's love of Cuba's vaunted medical care. Michael Moore call your office.

UK - Bodyguard says GCHQ bugged Diana

Really? Wow! Let's hear what his proof is.

"Ken Wharfe, who served Diana for six years, said the "Squidgygate" tapes of Diana speaking intimately to a friend in 1989 were probably made by GCHQ. "


Hmm. Let's hear more.

"Mr Wharfe told the central London hearing he believed the surveillance service GCHQ had broadcast the recording of the phone conversation over the airwaves for radio enthusiasts to pick up.

"It's my belief this internal recording was probably made by GCHQ... they probably had a good reason for doing it," he said. "


And yet he doesn't state why he believes it was GCHQ behind the leak nor does he offer any proof.

Toofers around the world will love this guy.

Philippines to Create Muslim Homeland

Appeasement never works.

Iran - US boat encounter a fake

Says who? Hooman Majd, writing in the left wing Huffington Post.

Majd was Ahmadinejad's interpreter for his visit to the UN.

"I've had the opportunity to attend events with President Ahmadinejad on his three trips to the U.S. (including serving as the interpreter for his U.N. speeches for the last two), and have spent time with his aides and Iranian diplomats during the New York visits."


Do tell.

Listen to Majd's defense of Ahmadinejad.

"His rebuffed request to lay a wreath at ground zero conveyed to his constituents at home and abroad that whenever he tries to extend a hand of friendship, it is the Americans who rudely slap it away. His appearance at Columbia served to illustrate his graciousness in the face of open hostility by the West."


Imagine that! Americans not wanting a representative of a Muslim country that supports terrorists to visit the spot where Muslim terrorists killed thousands on 9/11!!

Majd fails to mention that Ahmadinejad famously claimed that there are no gays in Iran. Since Iran hangs gays, he could be right.

Read the rest for Majd can hardly contain his love of Ahmadinejad. But if that isn't enough of a love fest read this. And note this:

"I had no intention of veering from the text, but it was both tantalizing and terrifying to know that a few extra words here and there would create headlines and headaches across the globe, if not land me either in Gitmo or Evin prison in Tehran."


That fact that Majd was tempted to add "a few extra words here and there" proves he is more radical than Ahmadinejad and one can only wonder at the "headlines and headaches" he wished to create.

Majd's love of Ahmadinejad is deep indeed.

"When he speaks to you (and maybe this is more relevant if you’re a fellow Iranian), Mr. Ahmadinejad is not only charming, but his tone is one of genuine friendliness— a remarkable ability to make you think he relates to you."


And

"...a reflection of who he really is: a regular Muslim guy who happens to be the president of a now-powerful nation."

Do tell. A nation that hangs gays, stones women to death and persecutes all other religions. That's Majd's definition of "a regular Muslim guy" who Majd "relates" with.

Here's something revealing from Majd.

"Anderson Cooper of CNN posed the softest if not most pro-Iran question of the morning when he asked about the country’s rather under-publicized but valiant efforts at fighting the Afghan opium trade. I realized later that the question must have been intended to help land the unscheduled short interview that Mr. Cooper conducted for CNN that night."


Speaking of a dinner held for Ahmadinejad and attended by, as Majd described them "...academics, physicians and businessmen—all successful Iranians (mostly from New York and New Jersey) who were largely observant Muslims as well as supporters of the Islamic Republic", Majd reveals this:

"The Iranians streamed out onto Sixth Avenue after an evening of celebrating Iran, its president and their own Iranian-ness, New Yorkers once again. Until another visit from Mr. Ahmadinejad, that is."


Interesting Majd. So these Iranian "academics, physicians and businessmen" all pretend to be Americans to the public and show their true colors when dear leader comes to town. Thanks for that revelation Majd.

Majd is an Iranian stooge and propagandist for them. The fact that Huff and Puff host such propaganda speaks volumes about them and their left wing supporters.

UPDATE

Iran shows video of navy standoff the BBC reports but note this:

"However, the four-minute clip does not appear to show the whole incident in the Strait of Hormuz on Sunday."


Imagine that.

US - Fox most trusted news organization

I'll get to that part in a minute as there are some other revealing facts in this study.

Let's start with this.

"And, 86.0% agreed (strongly or somewhat) that the news media attempts to influence public policies -- up from 76.7% in 2003."


And in which direction do they attempt to influence public policies.

"By four-to-one margins, Americans surveyed see The New York Times (41.9% to 11.8%) and National Public Radio (40.3% to 11.2%) as mostly or somewhat liberal over mostly or somewhat conservative.

By a three-to-one margin, Americans see news media journalists and broadcasters (45.4% to 15.7%) as mostly or somewhat liberal over mostly or somewhat conservative."


So, how does the American public feel about the media's attempt to push their liberal agenda on them?

"In the current national poll, just 19.6% of those surveyed could say they believe all or most news media reporting."


And how does the American public view Fox News?

"Just Fox News was seen as mostly and somewhat conservative (48.7%) over mostly or somewhat liberal (22.3%)."


Between all of those liberal news organization and Fox News, which is percieved to be conservative, who does the American public trust?

"The most trusted national TV news organizations, for accurate reporting, in declining order included: Fox News (27.0%), CNN (14.6%), and NBC News (10.90%)."


Americans should consider themselves lucky, here in Britain we have to pay for the BBC's left wing agenda.

US - Obama still leads Hillary Clinton

in delegates. Barely.

US - Why is the media ignoring Obama's religion?

Here's why.

UK - teenage bride was beaten to death

while the family turned a blind eye. Islam - the religion of peace and tolerance.

"Is there some lower stupidity threshold for liberals? "

That's the question posed by a commenter at Sydney Alternative Media linked to by Tim Blair.

What interests me is how often liberals are exposed this way and how easy it's done. It's almost as if they don't care that they will be exposed. They seem to feel that they can say whatever they want, going so far as to rewrite history or outright lie, knowing full well that with just a few clicks, they will be exposed. I guess you have to wear one of their tin foil hats to understand the mentality. Or, maybe the commenter is right and the stupidy threshold really is lower for liberals.

UK - BBC covers up Muslim racist attack

The BBC as always is keen to cover up racist crimes by Muslims.

Iraq - Police assume command of Anbar city

More good news from Iraq.

UK - 'Hypocrite' Straw on Muslim veil

The Daily Mail reports.

"Jack Straw was accused of hypocrisy yesterday after censuring a magistrate who refused to deal with a case in which a Muslim woman wore a face veil.

The Justice Secretary issued a formal reprimand to Ian Murray even though Mr Straw himself famously asks women to remove their veils in his constituency office. "


Straw is just pandering to his Muslim constituents. He should be standing up to the jihadists. And he needs to be educated to the fact that the veil is not a religious symbol but in fact a radical political statement.

UK - "Man jailed over terrorism charges"

Is the BBC's headline for for this report.

"A man in e-mail contact with so-called "lyrical terrorist" Samina Malik has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years after admitting three terror charges. "


"A man"? Common BBC, he's and admitted Islamic terrorist.

US - Cheap shot from a desperate Clinton

The Clinton's are good at it.

US - Hillary Clinton drops "change" mantra

and goes back to the future.

US - Hillary Clinton refuses to answer reporters question

US - The Clinton's political obituary

A bit early perhaps but let's hope this comes to pass soon. Read the whole thing but here's my favorite part.

"There are many things to say about the deeper meaning of this moment and what its passing will signify. Suffice it to say that it will be good, very good, for us to say farewell to the couple that brought you Carville, Begala, Blumenthal, and Ickes; the “war room,” the use of private investigators, and attacks on women like Dolly Kyle Browning, Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, and Kathleen Willey; impeachment for perjurious, false and misleading testimony to a grand jury; contempt of court findings; the promiscuous smearing of those whom they viewed as threat to their power; the charges of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” and assurances that “I did not have sexual relations with that woman”; and so much more."

US - The Hillary Clinton train wreck

Like the proverbial train wreck, its going to be a horrible crash but you just have to look, the Hillary Clinton train wreck makes you watch.

It was bad enough that she had to plant people with questions at her own appearances, but she went further and planted them at Republican events as well. Now, as people jump from the impending Clinton train wreck, she's busing people from out of state to her apperances in New Hampshire. Clinton decided to bus in supporters after crowds booed her in New Hampshire.

She might want to consider busing in support for husband Bill while she's at it.

No wonder Hillary won't meet the press.

Sunday, January 06, 2008

US - ROOSEVELT LIVES!

So much for MSM's fact checking.

Iraq - Obama: Surge success due to Democrats

That's what he claims.

"I would point out that much of that violence has been reduced because there was an agreement with tribes in Anbar province -- Sunni tribes -- who started to see, after the Democrats were elected in 2006, you know what, the Americans may be leaving soon, and we are going to be left very vulnerable to the Shi'as. We should start negotiating now. That's how you change behavior."


Fortunately, reality begs to differ.

Just add this to John Kerry's CIA Cambodia hat, Hillary's imaginary Bosnia trip and Al Gore's inventing the Internet.

Iraq - Dismantling al Qaeda

continues apace.

Islamic extremists have created "no-go" areas across Britain

Thanks to the left's love of Multiculturalism.

Iraq Suicide Attack Kills 11

There's a bigger story in this Time report.

"Two Iraqi soldiers threw themselves on a suicide bomber who slipped into a crowd celebrating Iraq's Army Day, but the attacker detonated an explosives vest, killing both soldiers and nine other people, the U.S. military and police said. "


Which is why the BBC left that part out of their report.

US - "Bill Clinton boosts wife's bid"

Blares the Guardian.

Oops!

US - Hillary Clinton is in big trouble

Listen to these voters in New Hampshire.



No wonder Obama has a ten point lead there now.

UK - Muslim women to curb terror

Interesting. Remember how the government told us that terrorism had nothing to do with one community? I don't recall them providing this training to Christian women.

Iraq - Intended consequences

for the world.

"In hindsight, U.S. troops will get credit for keeping their own casualties down to historically low levels (compared to any other 20th century conflict). Professional soldiers have already recognized this feat, and are studying American techniques intensively. Less well appreciated are the efforts the Americans made to keep civilian losses down. But foreign military experts are coming to appreciate that this aspect of the war paid long term benefits. Iraqis saw, day by day, the efforts by American troops to avoid hurting civilians. Initially, Iraqis saw that as an American weakness, but in the long run they recognized it as a sensibility rarely seen in the Middle East. This will have long term consequences for relations between the United States and Iraq."


And day by day they, and the world, saw al Qaeda intentionally kill and torture thousands of Iraqis civilians. Witnessing the two side by side made it an easy choice for the Iraqis.

British boy killed skiing in US

Blares the BBC headline.

"An 11-year-old British schoolboy has been killed while skiing in the US state of Colorado. "


Why those evil Americans, killing and innocent boy out skiing. Is that what really happened? Since it's the BBC reporting on America, you have to ask.

"Benjamin Trichler, from Uffington in Oxfordshire, died after crashing into a tree in Breckenridge, near Denver, during a family ski holiday."


So the headline and first paragraph should more honestly say "he died" not that he was killed. To be sure the boy is still dead from this tragic accident and the parents are still grieving none the less, but in this case the BBC's wording implies the boy was killed deliberately.

Here's how the BBC handle other such reports - "Boy, 13, dies on Spanish holiday"

And British toddler drowns in Spain

And Woman falls to death from balcony

And Heart attack mountain walker dies

Do a search of the BBC News using "killed" versus "dies". Those search results indicate to me that the BBC normally use "killed" to show intent while they use "dies" to indicate accident or natural causes.

US - “Miss Bill? Vote Hill!” Clinton that is.

Dowd of the New York Times slimes Hillary - deservedly so.

"“Miss Bill? Vote Hill!” reads one button being sold outside their events. By the time Bill and Hill are finished with you, you could be forgiven for thinking that she had personally forged the peace accord in Northern Ireland while socking away the $127 billion Clinton budget surplus and dodging bullets en route to ending ethnic cleansing in Bosnia."


You can read about Hillary's fantasy trip to Bosnia here. Next thing you know, she'll be wearing a John Kerry Cambodia hat.

Dowd continues.

"Has Hillary truly changed, and grown from her mistakes? Has she learned to be less stubborn and imperious and secretive and vindictive and entitled? Or has she merely learned to mask her off-putting and self-sabotaging qualities better? If elected, would the old Hillary pop up, dragging us back to the dysfunctional Clinton kingdom? She is speaking in a soft, measured voice in these final days, so that, as with Daisy Buchanan, you have to lean in to listen. But is she really different than she was in the years when she was so careless about the people around her getting hurt by the Clinton legal whirlwind that she was dubbed the Daisy Buchanan of the boomer set?"


Ouch.

UK - "The shame of Seumas Milne"

is the shame shared by anti western jihadist supporters in the left wing media like the BBC.

Ten things that will change your future

Interesting.

US - Hillary Clinton's clanger on Pakistan

If a Republican candidate made this gaffe it would be all over the left wing media.

"Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was praised in the wake of the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto for demonstrating her command of the players and the issues at stake in Pakistan, even as another candidate, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, was criticized for stumbling over details.

But in two confident television appearances, on CNN and ABC, Clinton made an elementary error about Pakistani politics: She described President Pervez Musharraf as a "candidate" who would be "on the ballot."

In fact, Musharraf was reelected to the presidency in October. The upcoming elections are for parliament, and while Musharraf's party will be facing off against opposition parties, the president himself is not a candidate."


Add this to Clinton's fantasy trip to Bosnia.
