Rosie wades in with the 9/11 conspiracy nuts

Here's the latest from that fat cow Rosie O'donnell ("The Queen of Nice" - remember that?) showing how ignorant and misguided she is. Huddled in her insulated Manhattan world, cuddling with her "life partner" and reading the New York Times has certainly warped her.



Popular Mechanics has issued a response to Rosie's tirade. [hat tip: LGF]It is well worth the read. It is appropriately titled "Debunking 9/11 Myths".

Rosie has been good for the show's overall ratings. The show doubled its viewership in a two-year period. But I pray that The Donald is right when he predicted that Rosie will sink the show.

O'donnell has certainly helped boost viewership, but it's due to her vitriol. She says and does things simply for effect. People are tuning in simply to see who she's going to target next. She sparred with Kelly Ripa by calling her a "homophobe" because Kelly didn't like Clay Aiken putting his hand over Kelly's mouth. And we all remember that back in January she got into it with Donald Trump.

She doesn't add substance to the discussions and she can't even be civil about the discourse. When you're a fat lesbian with an emotionally unstable streak of aggression, why let the facts stand in the way of your opinions.

Trump was right - she's a pathetic loser.

Jersey Guys speak the truth

Drudge has a link over to the NYTimes (I won't link to that pathetic liberal rag) on a story about two New Jersey DJ's who came up with an on-air game called "La Cucha Gotcha" in which they incite their listeners to turn in to ICE any one who may be an illegal immigrant.

New Jersey has a hispanic population of about 15%. Of course the latinos aren't very happy about a public figure calling for their friends and nieghbors to go around and help the INS and the ICE round up illegals.

Some unnamed "Hispanic officials" disparaged the DJ's antics as “dehumanizing,” “poisonous” and “idiotic,” - they are threatening boycotts of the show’s advertisers unless the Jersey Guys apologize.

But they're not getting an apology from these two - in fact quite the opposite. They called a press conference and basically told everyone to go fuck themselves.

The two DJ's - Craig Carton and Ray Rossi - called Assemblyman Caraballo a “pathetic liar.” Carton repeated his call to deport every illegal immigrant in the country. “If you’re here illegally, you are breaking the law — no better, no worse than the guy who robs the liquor store or the guy who waits to case your house out and robs you of your belongings,” he said. “You are a criminal.”

He went on to blame illegal immigrants for the state’s high property taxes, problems with uninsured drivers and violent crime. He also hinted that illegal immigrants were more likely to become terrorists. “Our country is at war right now, and it’s very important that we protect our kids, and one of the ways you can protect them is to not let undocumented immigrants into this country,” he said.

No shit. It's amazing that some radio personality has more commonsense, and more backbone than our own elected leaders. The White House should have been taking this line 10 years ago. We shouldn't be bending over backwards to accomodate the illegal contingent - they've showed over and over again that they don't intend to assimilate. They're just here with their collective hands out, filling our schools, shutting down our hospitals and over populating our jails. Our insurance rates are going up because they don't want to spend the money to get it for themselves, and they're pushing our crime rate to new heights.

If you happen to see someone in your neighborhood who looks illegal, please contact ICE and have him checked out. I personally know three instances where people called ICE and within a few months all the houses where the illegals were living were suddenly abandoned. It's your right.

Applause for the Jersey Boyz

No Clinton in 2008

I'm predicting that Hillary Clinton will not receive the Democratic Nomination in 2008. I've given it much thought and, I'm more and more convinced that there is one thing about Hillary that isn't getting looked at.

No it's not "Hillary Care" or WhiteWater, or the Rose Law Firm, or any of the other scandals that are hanging around her neck like a 10 Ton millstone.

geraldine_clinton

I call it the Ferraro Factor.

Years ago, 1984 to be exact, Geraldine Ferraro ran on the Democratic ticket for the vice-presidency. She ran on the Mondale ticket. She was also a New York member of the US House of Representatives (9th district). She had a failed run for the New York senate.

The thing that killed Ferraro was her public speaking voice. It was a screechy, nasal whine that was like nails on a chaulkboard for most listeners. Her voice is practically identical in timbre to Hillary's. While this is a mostly unconscious factor, it clearly will register with most voters. They will be unable to get her message because her voice will be so abrasive that it will preclude any interest in what she has to say.

Don't laugh so soon. Look at previous presidential runs: Nixon in 1960. He was clearly in the lead until that disasterous television appearance where Nixon appeared sweaty and tired, and JFK looked relaxed and confidence. (also until JFK started paying off election officials in the thousands).

Compare the presentations (visual and auditory) of the last elections. In 1992 Ross Perot had a strong message but was short in stature and had a "pippy" voice. He spoke very quickly and it was too easy to get beyond the sound bytes he threw out. Slick Willy scored points on him for slickness and flexibility.

I just don't think Hillary can get around her voice. It is shrill and most people will tune her out.

A reassuring voice from Tennessee

I took the family to California to escape the Chicago winter doldrums and, to sample some delicious Napa and Sonoma wines. The hang-over finally left so now it's back to blogging!

I heard an interview with Fred Thompson, the former senator from Tennessee. He announced on "Fox Sunday" that he'd "leave the door open" on a 2008 Presidential run. The only politician I know from Tennessee is Algore. That is pretty sad. Needless to say my impression of politicians from that state wasn't on par with Hamilton, Franklin or Paine.

But Thompson is different. I'm beginning to think that he'd be a good choice for the GOP presidential primary in '08. An online poll already has him tied with Mitt Romney....that was fast!

Well you only have to spend 10 minutes listening to the man speak to hear the quiet echo of a true conservative ringing through. His views are sensible, honest and a welcome relief from the b.s. that the Bush administration has been throwing at us.

His views on immigration are downright refreshing. He's not demonizing Mexico but writes:

We know that the overwhelming majority of illegals come across the Mexican border. Fortunately, we’ve got someone who is all too willing to tell us what we should do about it — the president of Mexico Philipe Calderon. President Calderon doesn’t think much of our border policies. He criticizes our efforts to secure the border with things such as border fencing. He says that bottle necks at U.S. checkpoints hurt Mexican commerce and force his citizens to migrate illegally in order to make a living (and of course send money back to Mexico). He apparently thinks we should do nothing except make American citizens out of his constituents. Calderon also accused U.S. officials of failing to do enough to stop the flow of drugs in to the United States. Mexican politicians gave President Bush an earful of all of this during his recent trip to Mexico.

So far anyone the Dems have put up would be a disaster, and it isn't much better over on the GOP side. I wish McCain would just go away - he's frankly embarrassing.

So far so good from Fred Thompson. Let's see if he's the real deal.

Maybe Tennessee can produce quality.

...and on the Illegal Immigration front...

Michelle Malkin has a link up to a site that has a startling statistic.

Patterico did some footwork on the rate that incarcerated illegals are checked on their immigration status.

And guess what? We’re still checking only a fraction of the arrestees in L.A. County — just as I said last year. The article states:


The Times reported last month that an increase in screeners allowed authorities to question nearly 10,000 of the 170,000 inmates who went through county jails last year about their immigration status.

10,000 of 170,000. That about 6%, if you’re keeping score. If we checked all of them, we’d get about 17 times as many.


The number red-flagged — those who face possible deportation once they serve their sentences — went from 3,050 in 2005 to 5,829 last year.

If checking 10,000 resulted in 5829 deportable immigrants, then if the numbers remained constant, checking them all would result in about 99,000 illegal criminals that we could deport.

But why would we want to do that? Let’s let them walk our streets instead. That’s a much better solution!


6% - wow. No wonder so many of these illegals feel as if they have nothing to worry about. Their mouthpieces are using the liberal press to paint a rosey picture of what their motivation to come here is. We're bombarded with newstories all the time about how the "hardships" that they have to endure to get here, how they have to pay off their "coyotes" to get them here, then how they have to use stolen documents to get a job, then they get here and "they can't get an opportunity" because no one speaks spanish.



The excuses are legion. And then we start making progress on kicking these criminals out of our country and then the press publishes these pathetic and shallow tear-jerker stories about how deportation is "dividing" families and making the poor illegals suffer. I couldn't even read the whole story because it was so sickening.

Gimme a break. Don't come here, break our laws, then get deported - then that way your family can stay together and you don't have to whine to some AP reporter.

Unbelievable.

D.C. Forced to Lift Gun ban

For as long as I can remember, the poster-child for the idiocy of Gun Control has been Washington, D.C. The pathetic joke is that for 20 years D.C. has had the strictest gun control laws in the nation, with the attendant highest murder rate.

People have common sense. They can figure out that a murder rate is not due to a city's gun laws. They've known that the reason for the high murder rate was due to the city being rife with criminals. And criminals always get their hands on guns - illegally, of course. And we get shunted into the category of being "gun nuts" when we realize that if your door is getting kicked in during a home invasion, or a burglar is crawling in through your bedroom window at 2am - you better have something more than the telephone in your hand. The police will take, on average, almost 5 full minutes to get to your location.

Well finally we, in the pro-Gun lobby, have gotten some relief.

The D.C. gun ban was overturned...

"We live in a society where having a handgun at home can be the difference between life and death," Palmer said.

D.C. officials contend that easing the gun ban will put citizens at an even higher risk of crime and say they will appeal the decision. An appeal would be likely to delay any change to the law. Officials maintain that the gun law is just as important as when it was enacted 31 years ago. Even with a ban, guns are used in more than 80 percent of the city's homicides, and police are struggling to get them out of the hands of criminals: More than 2,600 were seized last year.


One down, 10 more cities to go!

Israel Develops "Hunter-Killer" Robots

Just like something out of the "Terminator" movies, Israel is, or has, developed a robot that is designed to go into combat with a machine pistol and grenades.

Nice.

Deerfield High School: Muscle for the Gay Mafia?

The administration over at Deerfield High School are teaching their freshmen all about being Gay and its attendant lifestyle.

Tribune has the story here.

The Gay Mafia is rubbing their collective, pink-gloved hands together and tittering with glee.

I've said before that I think that anyone, regardless of their orientation, is pathetic for putting their sexuality as their defining characteristic. It is even worse for people to claim that their sexual orientation trumps their ethnicity. Thus we see groups whose highest attribute is their claim that they're "gay".

If you're gay, good for you. Go and follow your instincts, live your life and be happy. The government nor anyone should interfere with your lifestyle BUT, the government, schools or courts should NOT support nor endorse your choices.

Homosexuality used to be considered "deviant" - now it's cheeky and chic.

While we're fighting for the life our nation against a tidal wave of illegal immigration, losing our language and borders, battling 7th Century savages who want to turn this country into a Caliphate: we have to deal with people teaching our kids about the homosexual lifestyle.

Here's a novel idea - why not teach them english, uncensored lessons in US history, mathematics and how to be a good, courageous and considerate citizen?

They won't.

The small but vocal segment is only interested in teaching our kids about Matthew Shepard - because the LibTards who are awash in political correctness and cultural diversity, deem it more important to protect the "feelings" of a tiny segment of our population than to protect the sovereignty of our Nation.

Saying anything negative about homosexuality is now the new taboo. Welcome the new totalitarians: The Gay Mafia.

Police shooting show media bias

Michael Savage is tracking this story, as it appears in the San Francisco Chronicle.

The headline for the story posted as the SFC says,"POLICE SHOOT, KILL MAN WIELDING KNIFE"

Savage changed the title on his website to read, "HOMELESS KILLS AND CARJACKS; POLICE SAVE OTHERS"

The bias is subtle but significant. The story shows just how the press is unwilling to give the police the kudos that they richly deserve. This homocidal maniac, with an apparently long criminal history, had just been paroled and was working at a soup kitchen. Who knows what set him off - but really, who cares?

This guy murdered one person and was well on his way to killing more people when two hero cops, on patrol, killed him when he came after them waving a butcher knife in each hand.

One more reason to hate the homeless, and yet another example of how the media hates the police - for no good reason other than most of them are LibTards with Daddy issues.

The Barbarism that is Islam

Phyllis Chesler writes a scathing indictment of Islam in the TimesOnline. She was married to an Afghani man who she met in college. As soon as they landed in Kabul, they took her US Passport away and it was all down hill from there.


muslim photo op

Far from being a "religion of peace" Phyllis understands on a visceral level just how barbaric Islam is and how women and "infidels" are looked down as barely human.

In our two years together, my future husband had never once mentioned that his father had three wives and 21 children. Nor did he tell me that I would be expected to live as if I had been reared as an Afghan woman. I was supposed
to lead a largely indoor life among women, to go out only with a male escort
and to spend my days waiting for my husband to return or visiting female
relatives, or having new (and very fashionable) clothes made.

In America, my husband was proud that I was a natural-born rebel and free thinker. In Afghanistan, my criticism of the treatment of women and of the poor rendered him suspect, vulnerable. He mocked my horrified reactions. But I knew what my eyes and ears told me. I saw how poor women in chadaris were forced to sit at the back of the bus and had to keep yielding their
place on line in the bazaar to any man.

I saw how polygamous, arranged marriages and child brides led to chronic female suffering and to rivalry between co-wives and half-brothers; how the subordination and sequestration of women led to a profound estrangement between the sexes — one that led to wife-beating, marital rape and to a rampant but hotly denied male “prison”-like homosexuality and pederasty; how frustrated, neglected and uneducated women tormented their daughter-in-laws and female servants; how women were not allowed to pray in mosques or visit male doctors (their husbands described the symptoms in their absence).


She goes on to make the point that it is not a "hatred of the west" or a jewish cabal that is the foundation of Islamci jihad, it is within Islam itself that is the root cause of violence, murder and intolerance.

And where are the Femi-Nazis in all this? Where is Gloria Steinem or Jane Fonda giving press conferences and lectures on the intolerance of Islamic countries?

Nowhere --- their silence is deafening. (see Kate O'Bierne's interview at National Reiew on her book Women Who Make the World Worse)

Instead they'd rather devote their energies to promoting affirmative action initiatives, getting rid of Ivy League presidents who point out the obvious biological differences between the sexes, and fomenting their Marxist propaganda. As the true elitists that they are, they feel "above it all" and don't want to criticize Islamofacism and their totalitarian regimes because that would put them at risk. Since they and their colleagues on the Left are cowards, they choose to criticize people and institutions that won't cut their heads off - George Bush, NeoCons and America.

Our media doesn't help our struggles very much. Instead of devoting time and media coverage to the outrages and crimes committed in the name of Islam, they bury their heads in the sand and push Gay Marriage and Pro-Choice as the two most important challenges that we face.

It's unbeleivable how ridiculous our politically correct, vacuous politicians have stooped.

Everything I need to know about Islam I learned in 9/11/01.

New Gun Law alert

I saw this posted over at Illinois Review {hat tip to Ms. Teri O'brien}

FROM the Illinois State Rifle Association:

The Illinois Senate is about to debate a ban on semi-automatic rifles and shotguns. If passed, you would have 90 days to register your guns with the State Police or face arrest and felony prosecution. If you were caught with an AR-15 and 4 magazines, you’d get life in prison.

THREE THINGS YOU MUST DO TO SAVE YOUR GUN RIGHTS:

1. Beginning on Tuesday, March 6th, call your State Senator and POLITELY tell him or her that you are opposed to Senate Bill 16 – the Daley Assault Weapons Ban – and that you would like them to vote against Senate Bill 16 when it comes to the floor.


If you do not know who your State Senator is, then visit the following web site: www.ilga.gov and then click on the “Legislator Lookup” link in the lower right hand corner of the home page. Follow the instructions at that link.

2. Pass this alert along to all your gun-owning friends; tell them to call their State Senators also.

3. Please post this alert to any and all Internet Bulletin Boards and Internet sites to which you belong.

IF YOU DO NOT ACT NOW, YOU MAY HAVE NO GUNS LEFT BY THE 4TH OF JULY

Prisoner contracts to have Police beheaded

A prisoner in custody at Rikers Island prison for trying to kill his wife and VOOP (violation of an order of protection), is on tape attempting to hire an undercover officer to blowup NYPD HQ and behead Commissioner Kelly.

David Brown was apparently upset about the Sean Bell case and decided that the NYPD and Kelly were to blame for the death of Bell.

The story says that Brown has been convicted previously on 30 charges - 14 of them felonies that included five violent crimes.

The funniest quote in the article:

”He has nothing against the police,” Brown’s sister, Marilyn, told the Daily News in Tuesday’s edition. ”He would never hurt an officer. That’s not him. This is a shock to me,” she added.

I'm surprised she didn't launch into something like this:

"....he was a good boy, never hurt no one, just a misunderstood person who suffers from depression and anxiety, he just snapped ....he was so full of potentials and was a positive person .....with his background no one gaved him a chance....all he wanted was a chance to do something...."


...blah, blah, blah....

Now get back in your hole and do your life sentence without parole, dickhead.

Rap music sales in decline

It's being reported that rap music sales are down 21% from 2005 to 2006. For the first time in 12 years no rap album is amongst the top 10 sellers of the year.

Regular readers know my feelings about rap music. Aside from it being nothing more than digitalized beats with a recurring and, dare I say boring, melody - the lyrics are appalling.

Three-6 Mafia (formerly "666-Mafia"), are the current poster-children for everything that is wrong with the rap world. After having won an Academy award last year (God only knows what the Academy was thinking) for their tour de force song "It's Hard Out Here For a Pimp", one of their founders was curiously absent for awhile. It turned out he'd been arrested, released and put into rehab.



Just to show you how one-dimensional these bozos are, here are the title cuts from their CD "Club Memphis Underground"

Blow A Nigga's Ass Off
Fuck That Nigga
Fuck Dat Shit
Get Buck Muthafucka (Original)
Liquor And Dat Bud
Long And Hard (Original)
Nine To Yo Dome
No I'm Not Dat Nigga
North Memphis Area
Slob On My Knob (Pt. II)

Wow! How original! How edgey! What talent! It seems that they certainly did deserve an Academy award, afterall.

Not!

The nonsense that is rap music gets shielded from criticism by saying it is part of black "culture" and is an avenue where young black men who are "angry" can release their "angst" because their ancestors 400 years ago were slaves.

Happily Thomas Sowell, author of Black Rednecks and White Liberals, has researched this area and found it to have its basis in Celtic culture:

Sowell builds upon McWhiney’s theory about the Celtic origin of southern culture and takes it a step further. He hypothesizes that the southern “crackers,” or as Sowell refers to them, “rednecks” (a term which McWhiney never uses), are the source of urban black culture. He then deems this culture as "chaotic, counterproductive, dangerous and self-destructive" pointing particularly to the "gangsta rap" subculture. In the turn of 20th century, southern blacks, the vast majority of whom were freed slaves or their descendants, moved to the northern urban centers. These “black rednecks” brought their counterproductive culture with them which, Sowell believes, may have suited the Celts back in Scotland and Ireland, but only proved to hold blacks back.


It is heartening to see that people are waking up to the fact that rap music is a breeding ground for hate, crime, illegitimacy, violence, and victimhood.

Instead of holding people like Lloyd Banks, Little Wayne and Fifty Cent up as icons, it is time to show them in their true light: that of pathetic materialists who are driven by their basest drives and who celebrate rape, murder and mayhem.

Good riddance!
