Obama HUD nominee Sims in trouble

All of Obama's nominees have.

BBC's Simpson: Britain an US failed in Basra

As soon as I saw this BBC report was by Simpson I knew it would be Simpson's left wing bs.

"The water supply has been cut off for four days, one woman told us.

There are daily power cuts, another said. That means no air conditioning, though Basra is sweltering now, close to 38C (100F).

Six years on, people here still cannot understand how two of the world's richest countries, Britain and America, could invade Iraq and not manage to improve the basic living standards of the population."


Well gee John, let's not forget a small fly in the ointment here, there was a war going on at the same time.

Simpson as usual blames it all on Britain and America. Simpson fails to mention that the Iraqi economy is booming and as a result, sales of air conditioners, tv's and other electrical appliances are booming as well. The result is a higher demand for electricity. In spite of that electricity production has surpassed prewar levels. That's in large part to Britain and America's rebuilding Iraqs infrastructure which was in steep disrepair under Saddam.

Simpson also fails to point out some important facts about Iraq's water problems.

"Baghdad still draws its water from the Tigris, but even that legendary source is problematic. President Jalal Talabani flew to Turkey this week to discuss the diminishing water flow, because Turkey has dammed the river. Syria and Iran have dammed its tributaries."
...

In the absence of adequate sewers, squatters run pipes from their bathrooms into the street, turning it into a standing cesspool. The water lines are poorly sealed, and as the pressure goes down, raw sewage mixes with drinking water, not only for the squatters but also for anyone who relies on that water main.


Some of these problems most surely exist in Basra as well.

Simpson ends with this: "It was a trivial enough incident. But it was also a reminder that peace and prosperity are still some way off in Basra."

That's strange John for this BBC report contradicts that mate. As does this Sky report.

More bad news for Labour.

They sure seem to have a lot of it.

The plot thickens. Remember, Pelosi said she knew of the wiretap. Question is, did she know who was doing the wiretap?

Polish pianist stops show with anti-US tirade

But, but, they told me if Obama was elected the world would love us again.

"Zimerman appears to have been upset by Barack Obama's decision, announced this month, to maintain the Bush-era policy of installing a missile defence shield in Poland and the Czech Republic.

Obama insisted the shield was part of a defensive posture against Iran, not Russia, and that he intended to remove it as soon as the threat from Iran subsided. But many Poles have accused the US of wanting to mount a military occupation of their country, and fear the shield could make them a target of Russian aggression."


So much for change suckers.

Muslim-owned shop bans customers wearing veils

It should be banned altogether. The veil is not a Muslim religious symbol, it is in fact a radical Islamic political statement.

The effects of Muslim immigration

are not good.

Bakri Used British Taxpayers Money To Live In Luxury

It's why they call it Londonistan.

"The Muslim cleric, who lived in the UK for 20 years before being banned for preaching hate, used backdated incapacity benefits to buy his plush flat in Beirut. Speaking to the Daily Star at his latest Lebanon home in Tripoli, Bakri insists that he and fellow radicals including Anjem Choudary were justified in taking their state handouts because Britain has 'plundered' and 'colonised' Muslim countries around the world."

Obama's failed promises

So much for change.

Democratic Scandal Scorecard

Remember, Pelosi was suppose to drain the swamp.

The Media Elite's Secret Dinners

Controlling the news.

"Still, the catered gatherings also sound rather cozy, like some secret-handshake gathering of an entrenched elite. Are the top-level officials, strategists and foreign leaders there for serious questioning or risk-free spin sessions? And what exactly is the journalistic benefit if the visitors are protected by a shield of anonymity?

The guests "have either been frank with us or provided a reasonable facsimile of frankness," says Atlantic writer Jeffrey Goldberg. "Would I like for them to be able to go on the record? Of course. But I do think you lose something because then it becomes just another press conference."

Among those in regular attendance are David Brooks and Maureen Dowd of the New York Times, Gene Robinson and Ruth Marcus of The Washington Post, NBC's David Gregory, ABC's George Stephanopoulos, PBS's Gwen Ifill, the New Yorker's Jane Mayer, Vanity Fair's Todd Purdum, former Time managing editor Walter Isaacson and staffers from Bradley's Atlantic and National Journal, including Ron Brownstein, Andrew Sullivan and Jonathan Rauch.

More Dems call for tough Iran sanctions

Obama diplomacy epic fail.

Tomorrow will be Obama's 100 days in office and he's failed miserably on every front. No help from Europe in Afghanistan or on the economy, rebuffed by Russia, N. Korea and Iran, untold number of appointees withdrawn for tax evasion and many important posts unfilled. The list goes on.

On top of that, Obama is playing politics with our security by ordering Gitmo closed but kept Bagram open. Obama criticized Bush over wire taps but expanded the program.

No wonder Obama released the interrogation memos and wants to release photographs, Obama is trying to deflect attention from all his failures.

As flu hits, holes in Obama health team

Another Obama epic fail.

"The Obama administration declared a “public health emergency” Sunday to confront the swine flu — but is heading into its first medical outbreak without a secretary of Health and Human Services or appointees in any of the department’s 19 key posts.

President Barack Obama has not yet chosen a surgeon general or the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His choice to run the Food and Drug Administration awaits confirmation."


Actually, Obama did choose a surgeon general. But, in another epic fail, he had to withdraw the nomination.

Appeasement never works.

This is how the Islamists want the rest of us to live.

"Women in Saudi Arabia are banned from driving, must wear a head-to-toe cloak when out in public and must obtain permission from a male relative to work, travel, study or marry. "


We are constantly told by Islamic apologist and Muslim speakers, that the practice of enforcing strict Islamic law, is practiced by a fringe few. Do these people consider Saudi Arabia a "fringe few".

Let's not forget about the persecution of Christians and gays as well.

BMI told stewardess to wear Muslim robe

And the tribunal backed them up!

N. Korea Says It Has Restarted Nuclear Facilities

Obama fails again.

Cheney did ask for CIA memos

See here. Don't hold your breath for all these leftoids to admit they were wrong. The leftoids went nuts claiming Cheney lied about his request to the CIA. It was pointed out at the time to these dim people, that the request was made to the National Archives and not the CIA, as per normal procedures.

al Qaeda leader arrested in Iraq

Zarqawi's replacement.

"AMMAN, JORDAN – Amid reports of two bombings that killed scores, an Iraqi military spokesman announced Thursday that Iraqi forces had arrested the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Omar al-Baghdadi.

“Abu Omar al-Baghdadi was arrested today in Baghdad,” Baghdad security spokesman Maj. Gen. Qasim Atta told Agence France-Presse. “It was Iraqi forces who arrested him based on an intelligence tipoff from someone.”

The arrest, which is perhaps the greatest blow to AQI since its former leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed in a 2006 US strike, comes amid a recent spike in violence. Some worry that the nation’s security gains may slip as the US scales back its presence."

Obama wants defendants' rights limited

Didn't see that coming, did you?

"WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Obama administration is asking the Supreme Court to overrule long-standing law that stops police from initiating questions unless a defendant's lawyer is present, another stark example of the White House seeking to limit rather than expand rights."

A World Of Trouble For Obama

The blame Bush game is over.

Delegates walk out of UN conference

Good for them.

"Protestors stormed the stage when Ahmadinejad began speaking and several Western delegates walked out of the room after the Iranian president said Israel was created on the "pretext of Jewish suffering" from World War II.

Among the diplomats seen leaving the room were envoys from Britain, France and Canada, who had all previosuly threatened to stand up and leave if the Iranian president made anti-Semitic statements, the Times of London reported."

Egypt opens Gaza border crossing

for two days. What? You didn't know Egypt had closed its border with Gaza at the same time and reasons as Israel?

"The crossing has been closed for much of the time since the Hamas movement took control of Gaza in June 2007. "


Now, why might that be?

Navy Veterans and Asbestos Exposure

Throughout the 20th century, asbestos was used in many industrial applications as a form of insulation, piping, flooring, brake lining and roofing. The United States military implemented asbestos use in Navy vessels because of its heat resistant, durable and versatile qualities. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions of living veterans were exposed to asbestos-containing materials during their service. Asbestos was valued so high that its use was widespread until the 1970’s, when it began to be phased out.

Thousands of tons of asbestos were used as piping and boiler insulation aboard navigation rooms, sleeping quarters and mess halls in ships. It’s qualities as fire resistant, versatile and durable nature paved the way for its uses as insulation in aircraft, vehicles and buildings. Asbestos appeared on most vessels used by the Navy and in shipyards. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs stated that out of the 25 million military veterans living today in the country, hundreds of thousands were exposed to asbestos while on service.
Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of a rare cancer known as mesothelioma. This type of cancer typically affects the lining of the lungs, heart or stomach. Unfortunately, because the symptoms of mesothelioma do not show up until about 15 to 25 years after exposure, the cancer is usually diagnosed in its advanced stages when it is more difficult to treat. A typical mesothelioma survival rate is about 1 year from the time it is diagnosed.

Regarded as one of many cover-ups jointly executed by corporations and government, it appears that the asbestos scandal still has not reached its climax. It appears that until there is a vehement change in policies enforced on a federal level against the use of asbestos, it will continue to inflict damage and harm to yet another generation of innocent by standards.Military veterans and civilians who have developed an asbestos-related disease find themselves in a tough situation when attempting to receive assistance and benefits for their wrongful illness. Currently, mesothelioma is not readily recognized as a service-related medical ailment. However, veterans can apply for Veteran Affairs (VA) benefits for asbestos-related illness and must provide proof that their exposure occurred at the time of their military service.

Germany to boycott UN racism meeting

Good for them.

"Germany joined the United States, Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Israel and Italy in boycotting the conference out of concern that it could be used by Muslim countries to criticise Israel and to limit free speech when it comes to criticising their religion. "

Guardian attacks Fox News

Like a little boy whose had is rattle taken away, Peter Preston attacks Fox News. Lefties sure don't like it now that they're not the only ones with a voice.

Preston uses Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals to attack Fox News. Preston's attack is classic rule 5 and 12.

"RULE 5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.) "

"RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.) "


Preston's picked his target, Fox News, froze it, personalized it, polarized it and then ridiculed it. No facts are needed. Textbook left wing drivel.

Preston notes this about Fox News:

"The most remarkable broadcasting phenomenon today, or for the last 10 years, is Fox News,..." and "Check the latest ratings and you will find Fox News not just back at number one, but walloping its rivals more conclusively than ever. Its American audience now beats the other two combined."

Preston's conclusion as to why Fox News is so popular? "Here's the secret ingredient. It is known as rage."

That's it. No, seriously, that's it, that's Preston's conclusion. Ten years is a long time to be mad Preston old boy.

The Guardian is the same paper that gave us The Aslam Affair.

Update. Now this is rage Preston. Scroll down for the photos.

Update. The angry left.

This is revealing. Milbank is a reporter with the Washington Post and is supposed to be neutral.

"So the angry left should thank me: I'm taking one for the team."

So Milbank admits he's on the left's "team".

Obama unleashes the attack dogs

In the face of massive protests against Obama's massive tax and spend programs, Obama unleashes the attack dogs.

First we had DHS right-wing report issued despite concerns.

Then "US spy agency exceeded powers".

And now Obama releases torture memos.

All designed to deflect attention away from Obama's failings and try and play the blame Bush game. Just shows you how desperate Obama is.

Notre Dame to cover up Christ for Obama?

Georgetown did.

"The White House acknowledges that it asked Georgetown University, a Catholic institution, to cover up prominent Christian symbols for President Obama's economic speech this past Tuesday. The symbols, the letters "IHS" which stands for Jesus Christ, and a cross, are engraved on a pediment that stands behind the stage from which Obama delivered his address. Both the cross and the symbolic representation of Jesus' name were not hidden by the background drapes that the White House wanted for the event, and so the Administration asked the school to cover them."


Over to you Notre Dame

Of course when the left protest it's patriotic. But why is Schakowsky so bent on stopping these tax protesters? Congresswoman's husband pleads guilty to two tax felonies

"CHICAGO (AP) — The husband of an Illinois congresswoman pleaded guilty Wednesday to tax violations and bank fraud for writing rubber checks and failing to collect withholding tax from an employee.

Robert Creamer, a political consultant married to four-term U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky [D], could face four years in prison on the two felony counts when he is sentenced Dec. 21. "

No criticism for Egypt's Gaza blocade

That would spoil the narrative.

Where do the Gaza death numbers come from?

Why, the Palestinians, of course!

"According to a Palestinian rights group, 1,417 Palestinians, including 926 civilians, were killed in the fighting. Israel disputes those figures."


That one must have slipped by the al Reuters censors.

Iraq air raids hit mostly women and children

blares the headline from the Independent.

"Air strikes and artillery barrages have taken a heavy toll among the most vulnerable of the Iraqi people, with children and women forming a disproportionate number of the dead.

Analysis carried out for the research group Iraq Body Count (IBC) found that 39 per cent of those killed in air raids by the US-led coalition were children and 46 per cent were women."


The Independent go on to quote some figures.

"The report, The Weapons That Kill Civilians, Deaths of Children and Noncombatants in Iraq, was compiled from a sample of 60,481 deaths in 14,196 events over a five-year period since the 2003 invasion. Civilian casualties from concentrated bouts of violence, such as the two sieges of Fallujah, were excluded. "


But as is custom for the Independent, they leave out important facts that tell the whole story.

"BAGHDAD (AP) — Execution-style killings, not headline-grabbing bombings, have been the leading cause of death among civilians in the Iraq war, a study released Wednesday shows."


Here are the actual numbers The Independent leave out.

"Only 4 percent of the Iraqi deaths included in the study, or 2,363, were a result of U.S. airstrikes,..."


Terrible numbers to be sure, but you have to wonder why The Independent leave out important information. As for the percentages of women and children, here to the Independent leave out crucial information.

"The authors caution that those percentages may be inflated "because the media may tend to specifically identify female and young victims more readily than male adults among the dead."


Percentages inflated by the media, un huh. Which is why the Independent goes on the cite the much discredited Lancet report.

War is terrible and civilian deaths, especially women and children, are horrible, which is all the more reason the Independent should be condemned for trying to use their deaths to further their anti war agenda.

Tea Party coverage

Just start scrolling down the page.

Hypocrisy of the Left

Happens all the time.

Amnesty International's anti Americanism

is in full view here.

This blogger for AI believes everything Gharani says and repeats his claims of torture without any evidence what soever. Further, they leave out some important information, such as the other sides version.

"A spokesman for the camp, Lt Cmdr Brook DeWalt, told the Miami Herald newspaper there was “no evidence to substantiate these claims and all credible allegations are fully investigated”.


But since it's America AI is talking about, the claims are automatically true. But, on the other hand it's Obama, the left's chosen one, we're talking about so we musn't criticize The One. Hence, AI leave out this bit from Gharani.

"Since then I've been subjected to it almost every day," he said. "Since Obama took charge he has not shown us that anything will change."


So much for Hope and Change then.

Another inmate was recently released to Britain. He too made claims of various forms of serious torture including have his genitals cut. These claims could easily be verivied with a simple medial check; one he refuses to submit to. Now I wonder why?

Muslim MP criticizes killing Muslim terrorists

Whose side is Sadiq Khan on?

"A GOVERNMENT minister has called for Britain to distance itself publicly from the American policy of launching attacks on Al-Qaeda terrorists with pilotless drones to avoid inflaming Pakistani opinion.

Sadiq Khan, the community cohesion minister, said he had listened to the “anger and frustration” of students in Islamabad over US attacks inside Pakistan."


Now you know.

Update. This is the kind of the terrorist Khan seeks to protect.

"Despite this known track record, Rauf’s real importance had been underestimated. About four years ago he became Al-Qaeda’s director of European operations.

Last November Rauf was reportedly killed when three American Hellfire missiles from a CIA predator drone destroyed a mud-built bungalow in a village in North Waziristan, in the lawless tribal lands that span the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. "


Update. Remember those Pakistani students Khan says he listened to? Would that be these students?

"A number of the 11 Pakistanis arrested were from the tribal areas and had been admitted to Britain on student visas. "

Downing Street's 'vile' sex smear emails

Amnesty International aids terrorism

This AI report trumpets a UN investigation into the latest Gaza conflict that calls on both sides to cooperate with the UN. But AI has already convicted Israel before the investigation has even begun.

"During the Israeli military campaign 'Cast Lead', between 27 December 2008 and 18 January 2009, Israeli forces killed more than 1,400 Palestinians, including 300 children and hundreds of other unarmed civilians, and injured some 5,000 Palestinians, many of them maimed for life."


AI states those numbers as fact without reference to where they came from - and for good reason. Here's why.

"Palestinian doctors say 879 Palestinians have been killed since the Israeli offensive - to stamp out rocket fire by Gaza militants - began on 27 December.

Norwegian doctors in Gaza's main hospital said about half the casualties they have seen are civilians. Thirteen Israelis - 10 soldiers and three civilians - have died during the offensive. "


No mention of how you can tell a civilian from a terrorists wearing civilian clothes. So just who are these Norwegian doctors? Mads Gilbert, that's who.

"When asked if he supported a terrorist attack against the US he answered: "Terror is a poor weapon, but my answer is yes, within the context I have mentioned."


So, the numbers come from Palestinian doctors and the civilian numbers come from Gilbert, an admitted hater of Israel and America.

Who runs AI anyway?

"AI is most vocal in its attacks on America over Guantanamo bay. AI’s Secretary General, Irene Khan, referred to Guantanamo prison as the “gulag of our times” and has co-authored a book titled “America's Gulag: Full Spectrum Dominance Versus Universal Human Rights”. In addition, AI produces “education packs” made available to schools to promote their agenda. In one such pack, school children are taught how to dress up in orange jump suits similar to those worn by prisoners held at the prison. This despite the fact that many prisoners at the prison openly admit they carried out acts of terrorism and boast they will do so again if released; some have already done so.

As Ms. Khan is a Muslim, her attacks on Israel come as no surprise."

Instead of drilling for oil, Obama tilts at windmills

I mean, you didn't really think Obama meant it when he said he would make America oil independent, did you?

"Weaning the U.S. off imported oil by drilling for known reserves off our coasts and under federal lands is a no-cost economic stimulus that would create 160,000 high-paying jobs and generate $1.7 trillion in new tax revenue and royalties. Tapping this resource would stop the flow of U.S. dollars to Middle Eastern sheikdoms, Hugo Chavez’s Venezuelan madhouse and other OPEC outposts of petroleum-fueled global lunacy. But even though a large majority of Americans favor expanding domestic oil and gas production, the Obama administration is literally tilting at windmills instead. "

"Similar sentiments echo across the House. Rep. Jim McGovern (D., Mass.) said he fears Afghanistan could become a quagmire. "I just have this sinking feeling that we're getting deeper and deeper into a war that has no end," he said.

Rep. John Conyers (D., Mich.) dismissed Mr. Obama's plans as "embarrassingly naive," and suggested that the president is being led astray by those around him."


Well, he picked them.

Obama to build Bush's missile shield

So much for Obama's reset button for Russia, eh? And how did the crowd of Obamamaniacs (love that word) react?

"This is a hard edged charm offensive. Again in Prague he has addressed a cheerful throng of Obamamaniacs but again he has told them things they received in stony (confused?) silence. This time it was on the missile defence shield that President Bush wanted to build and President Obama will... still build. This is what he said:

"Let me be clear: Iran's nuclear and ballistic missile activity poses a real threat, not just to the United States, but to Iran's neighbors and our allies. The Czech Republic and Poland have been courageous in agreeing to host a defense against these missiles. As long as the threat from Iran persists, we intend to go forward with a missile defense system that is cost-effective and proven."


How long before they start calling Obama Hitler?

Divided America: The Obama factor

To be fair, the BBC headline from 2004 read: "Divided America: The Bush factor".

"George W Bush came into office promising to be "a uniter, not a divider" - but he has gone on to be one of the most divisive presidents in recent memory. "


Now that Obama has surpassed Bush as the great divider, why hasn't the BBC reported that?

Prove your blind or get out of store

Why would anyone say that?

"The shop manager, who only gave his name as Mr Ahmed, at first defended his worker, saying: "How were we to know if she needed a guide dog or not?"

And you thought Al Gore was nuts.

"John Holdren said that the idea of geo-engineering the climate is being discussed. Options include cloud-seeding and shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun's rays."


Is that what Obama had in mind when he said he wanted to restore science to its rightful place?

What has Obama's foreign tour achieved?

Nothing.

Obama - "The great divider"

Blame the left wing media for creating myth Obama.

How long before they call Obama Hitler?

Yesterday it was Electronic Freedom Foundation saying Obama was worse than Bush. Today we have Glenn Greenwald and Olberman saying Obama is worse than Bush.

" As much as anything else, what fueled the extreme hostility towards the Bush/Cheney administration were their imperious and radical efforts to place themselves behind an impenetrable wall of secrecy and above and beyond the rule of law. It would require a virtually pathological level of tribal loyalty and monumental intellectual dishonesty not to object just as vehemently as we watch the Obama DOJ repeatedly invoke these very same theories and, in this instance, actually invent a new one that not even the Bush administration espoused.

To be clear: there are important areas in which Obama has been quite commendable, and I've personally praised him fairly lavishly for those actions (see, for instance, here, here and here), but it is simply unacceptable -- no matter what else is true about him -- for Obama to claim for himself the very legal immunity and secrecy powers which characterized and enabled the worst excesses of Bush lawlessness. Yet in a short period of time, he has taken one step after the next to do exactly that."


How long before they start calling Obama Hitler? Oh, don't worry they won't compare Obama to a chimp like they did Bush; that would be racist don't you know.

Update: Cindy Sheehan joins the anti Obama bandwagon.

"On Fox News Sheehan was recently shown describing Barack Obama as a mindless warrior akin to Bush:

"We have to put ourselves in between Barack Obama and our children. Barack Obama cannot have our children," she was videotaped saying."

Obama declares victory in Iraq

His prediction of failure during the campaign is a reminder of how inept he is.

BBC's very best shows in television journalism axed

Here's how the BBC billed its US version of Paxman's Newsnight.

"Grant, who is also Executive Producer of the new show, says...: "Newsnight is one of the very best shows in television journalism - it's fearless. It asks the questions that beg to be asked but rarely are. If you want to get answers, really get answers, to the important questions, understand what happenedthis week and what mattered, Newsnight is for you."


So, how'd that work out? The show was axed.

"Last year, BBC Worldwide launched a much-hyped, Paxman-anchored US version of the popular show and gave it pride of place in their schedule on Friday nights.

But after a series of poor ratings the corporation first downgraded the show to Thursday nights, before axing it altogether following the US elections."


Now, if they would just ax the BBC altogether.

Now that the war is won the left wing media are not interested.

Robot achieves scientific first

Cool.

Fake Charities

Careful who you donate to.

World refuses to cooperate with Obama

NATO countries turned their back on him and so to the North Koreans. All of this comes on the heels of the Russian and Islamic rebuffs to Obama.

Cartoon strip depicts Christian boy as Islamaphobe

Imagine the outrage if this depicted a Muslim boy as a terrorist.

This shows the ignorance of most people over the hijab.

"She replies that the garment is called a hijab and it is part of her religion, ‘like that cross you wear’."


The hijab is not part of Islam, is not in the Koran or the hadiths and is even banned in some Muslim countries.

The question that flummoxed Obama

Even the Guardian is starting to realize that Obama is an empty suit.

It wasn't the question that flummoxed Obama, the problem was Obama didn't have a teleprompter to tell him what to say. Obama's a puppet on a string.

School bans Muslim mother for wearing veil

Fantastic!!

"The mother-of-one from Blackburn said: 'I don't like going to the school anymore because I leave crying. I can understand that people should be identified but I am just a normal person, trying to lead a normal life. Why should how I dress make a difference?'


Well dear, that's because the veil is not a religious symbol and is in fact a radical Islamic political statement banned in many Islamic countries.

Is Britain finally growing a pair?

Foreign detainees 'have US right'

The BBC tries to downplay Obama's role in this. Not till the end are we told:

"The ruling is a rebuff to the Obama administration, says the BBC's Adam Brookes in Washington. "


In other words, Obama was in favor of continuing Bush's policy of their detention without access to the US Justice system. Where's the left wing outrage over that?

Dunkin' Franchise Ended over pork

Britain needs to learn how to stand up to Muslims.

"Westchester, IL. - A Muslim franchisee of a suburban Chicago Dunkin' Donuts store must surrender ownership after losing a legal battle over his religious objections to selling pork. Walid Elkhatib's attorney says the 59-year-old is removing Dunkin' signage from his Westchester store."


If your religion forbids certain things then don't take the job in the first place.

Who's going to pay for Obama's debt? video

Obama buyers remorse

at the New York Times. The left wing media subverted fair elections by failing to investigate Obama and attacking his opponents. So cry me a river.

"Indeed, for all the shifting words, Mr. Obama has left the bulk of Mr. Bush’s national security architecture intact so far. He has made no move to revise the Patriot Act or the eavesdropping program. He has ordered Guantánamo to be closed in a year but has not turned loose all the prisoners. The troop buildup in Afghanistan resembles the one Mr. Bush ordered in Iraq two years ago.

In cautioning against the “surge” label, Mr. Reid clearly wanted to avoid associating the Obama strategy in Afghanistan with the Bush strategy in Iraq, a strategy that both he and the president opposed at the time. The two have never repudiated their opposition to the Iraq buildup, even though many now credit it with helping to stabilize the country. And any language suggesting parallels between the two approaches could aggravate the party’s liberal base, much of which is already suspicious of committing more forces to Afghanistan."
