Charlene Downes murder - still a deafening silence

Britain's heavy controlled Politically Correct mass media continue to ignore one of the most unpleasant cases of suspected racist murder - which probably involved gang rape as well.

14-year-old Charlene Downes is believed by Blackpool police to have been turned into kebabs and tile grout after her disappearance in November 2003. Two Muslim men - one a former social worker - have been charged with her murder or with assisting in the disposal of her body.

The combination of murder, the appalling likelihood that scores of unwitting customers actually ate Charlene, and the unasked question as to whether this was another case involving the grooming for sex and drugs of a young white girl by a Muslim sex predator gang should have made this killing national front page news.

Will US muslim enclaves appear here? Toss up. Time was, I would have said no way. Now I'm not so sure anymore.

The local planning commission in Little Rock, Arkansas, might proceed with the proposed Muslim enclave, but the Arkansas courts and its legislature should not abdicate its responsibilities to ensure that Western liberal rights and protections remain supreme. The government should monitor both the rhetoric and behavior of these communities. As the Supreme Court stated in Cantwell: the freedom to believe is absolute, but the freedom to act, in the nature of things, cannot be, especially as to the safety and preservation of the American democracy.Collapse )

Perhaps these peaceful muslims can save our planet from global warming by getting rid of everything modern - kind of like getting back to basics. So, invasion by these death-loving islamobot barbarians could be a good thing.


Whether or not any such structure exists or can be forged, the fact is that the fuel of Islamic imperialism remains as volatile as ever, and is very far from having burned itself out. To deny its force is the height of folly, and to imagine that it can be appeased or deflected is to play into its hands. Only when it is defeated, and when the faith of Islam is no longer a tool of Islamic political ambition, will the inhabitants of Muslim lands, and the rest of the world, be able to look forward to a future less burdened by Saladins and their gory dreams.Collapse )

Central Park Coyote Dead

Mar. 31st, 2006 | 10:57 pm

On Fox News, they said that the Central Park coyote had been killed during a "routine tagging accident".


He was captured 3/22 and died on 3/31. What were you guys doing with this coyote for 9 DAYS!??!!!

You had him bagged, why couldn't you take him upstate like you said you were going to do and let him go?

Why did you mess around with him until you killed him?

He made you all look incompetent. You don't look incompetent anymore.

"A coyote that roamed Central Park for several days, delighting New Yorkers and making fools out of New York cops and wildlife officials, has been caught."

"The coyote first appeared on Sunday and has been feasting on ducks and other birds ever since. Local news stations have shown comical footage of police and park rangers running Elmer Fudd-like through Central Park in hot pursuit of the animal."

"Unlike other large cities like Chicago or Los Angeles, New York doesn't have much of a coyote problem. That's because you can only get to Manhattan by bridge, tunnel, or a very expensive cab from La Guardia."

"He's a very adventurous coyote to travel to midtown Manhattan," said Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe.

"The coyote eluded Parks officials and police officers at every turn, jumping fences, swimming across ponds, and scampering around skating rinks to avoid capture. But then its luck ran out."

"It was tranquilized near the 79th Street traverse, and will be shipped to a wildlife preserve upstate."

Iran has developed a new method of delivering their "peaceful nuclear power", the Fajr-3, which is good for 1,250 miles. Not to be outdone, the head of the Arab League called on Arab states to develop nuclear power.

Tuesday, the PA gifted the Israelis with a Katyusha rocket which landed in an open field south of Ashkelon. The PA has many more such presents in store, possibly even better aimed.

France is having oh so peaceful riots again.

Bush is in Cancun with Fox and Harper. Hopefully, Stephen Harper will not be contaminated. Why is Chevron CEO David O'Reilly at these meetings? Who else is there?

I can't wait to find out which right or liberty of ours Bush has given away now.

Hostage Jill Carroll has only glowing things to say about her kidnappers, but with Stockholm Syndrome and threats against her life, her real story may not emerge for quite some time.

It's too bad Afghanistan's Christian, Abdul Rahman was whisked away to freedom in ITALY. It speaks volumes to me that America did not speak out forcefully to save him, rescue him, and bring him to America. At least he is free. Now what about the other Christians imprisioned for their faith in that hellhole of a country that we "rescued" from the Taliban?

herding those horses back to the barn. This is almost amusing.

False radiation alarms are common — sometimes occurring more than 100 times a day — although the GAO said inspectors generally do a good job distinguishing nuisance alarms from actual ones. False alarms can be caused by ceramics, fertilizers, bananas and even patients who have recently undergone some types of medical procedures. At one port — which investigators did not identify — a director frustrated over false alarms was worried that backed-up trains might block the entrance to a nearby military base until an alarm was checked out. The director's solution: simply turn off the radiation detector.Collapse )

Dear Mr. President:

By your inaction on the behalf of the American people, we know which side of your sombrero gets buttered. Thank you so much for leaving us open to invasion.

Most Sincerely,


The globalists have been amazingly efficient. They have even convinced half of our population that we deserve the coming Balkanization. The next step will have to be getting rid of the Second Amendment. This is what I believe the jihadis are waiting for too.

According to Michelle Malkin, the anti-American propagandists (MSM) are being careful to portray the invaders as being peaceful. Read their signs. Listen to their slogans. They may be peaceful, but their threat is real.

...we must recognize that the Mexicans are not coming here merely as individuals seeking economic opportunities, but as a nation, expressing their national identity and collective will. Even more important, we must revive our own largely forgotten and forbidden sense that we ourselves are a nation, not just a bunch of consumers and bearers of individual rights, and have the right to defend our nation as a nation.Collapse )

Where is our OIF war song?

Mar. 28th, 2006 | 12:49 pm

There are Joseph Goebbels everywhere in this conflict, all seemingly on the other side and far too many in this country. Propaganda is a powerful weapon which we must use to our advantage. Unfortunately, this Administration has trouble stringing two sentences together in support of its efforts.

One reason we are losing the propaganda war is that this Administration will do anything to keep the economy going and the numbers up. If this country really thought it was fighting a war it had to win, things on the home front would change.

Wars are bad for business. I expect this Administration to verbally tip-toe around the war at every opportunity, leaving only the Goebbels in the crowd to shriek. Trying to protect the American people in this manner will only ensure draconian measures down the road.

A Steyn day

Mar. 26th, 2006 | 09:13 pm

Mark Steyn discusses the folly of inaction and how stability is overrated.

Hey. There's a lesson here that should be applied to Iran. Nah. Back to sleep, paper tiger.


"Diplomats use "stability" as a fancy term to dignify inertia and complacency as geopolitical sophistication, but the lesson of 9/11 is that "stability" is profoundly unstable. The unreal realpolitik of the previous 40 years had given the region a stability unique in the non-democratic world, and in return they exported their toxins, both as manpower (on 9/11) and as ideology. Instability was as good a strategic objective as any."


Mark Steyn: Will we stick our necks out for his faith?


"Karzai is kept alive by a bodyguard of foreigners. The fragile Afghan state is protected by American, British, Canadian, Australian, Italian and other troops, hundreds of whom have died. You cannot ask Americans or Britons to expend blood and treasure to build a society in which a man can be executed for his choice of religion. You cannot tell a Canadian soldier serving in Kandahar that he, as a Christian, must sacrifice his life to create a Muslim state in which his faith is a capital offense."


I wonder if it wasn't Karzai's bodyguard's disgust that made him start speaking out of the other side of his mouth. Possibly those infidel Christians were just a little less, um, attentive. Jus' sayin'.

Britain's jihadis wanted to go the distance. They were just incompetent. It's soft target time in the UK.

"AN ISLAMIST terrorist sold poisoned burgers from a street-corner van and planned to contaminate beer at a football stadium, the Old Bailey was told yesterday."

"The alleged extremist, one of seven on trial for plotting to blow up British targets, was also said to have suggested poisoning takeaway food and sabotaging BT."

"Mr Mahmood, who worked for Transco National Grid, then allegedly gave examples of possible British targets to his accomplices. Some were intended to cause maximum financial damage by hitting utilities or telecommunication plants."

"The court was told that other suggestions included taking a job as a beer-seller at a football stadium, smuggling in poison in a syringe. Babar said Mr Mahmood claimed that he had already sold toxic burgers from a mobile van."

"Another plan was to distribute leaflets for a fictional take-away restaurant, then deliver poisoned food to houses."


Debbie Schlussel shows what the enterprising jihadi is up to in the US.

Jihadi that killed Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh's missive.

Chapel Hill's jihadi left a letter, too.

Since these incidents are not happening on a daily basis, we shouldn't be worried.

For those who thought the Dubai Port deal was a fluke, this will tickle you silly. Or maybe not.

textCollapse )

The possibility of foreign management of 21 nonmilitary and 2 military ports (the MSM is still hawking 6 even though the facts differ) woke up many people. Bush is still adamant that this will be the case. Not solitary in his decision, he has a few strange bedfellows.

The Dubai Port Deal stunk. Almost everyone could smell it.

Now, there is Hutchison Whampoa Ltd., which the Bush Administration blocked from acquiring part of a US telecommunications company because of security concerns, who is now holder of a no-bid contract to screen for radioactive materials in cargo passing through the Bahamas. Under the contract, no US official would be stationed permanently with the radiation detector. This defies reason and logic.

I especially like the quote, "Money buys a lot of things."

We can only wait to see on which side of the security issue President Bush will fall. Any takers?

Afghanistan redux?

Mar. 24th, 2006 | 08:41 pm

The Asian Times tells of a storm coming in Afghanistan.

textCollapse )

The Taliban have only changed location, nothing more. When the UN, with their dubious will to intervene, takes over responsibilities in Afghanistan, look for the black turbans to reappear en masse. Murders have been on the increase, unabated by Coalition Forces. Schools are being burned down and teachers beheaded in increasing numbers. We may be able to rebuild the structures, but our war for the hearts and minds of the people is lagging. Threats of torture and murder, not just for yourself, but for every member of your family, just does not equate with electricity, clean water, education and inoculations. What good are the benefits brought by the West, if you are dead?

In our game of whack-a-mole, we look every bit the paper tiger. As in Fallujah, we are destined to pay more than once for ground that we take. From our positions in Afghanistan, our troops can view the rolling stormcloud in the mountains as well as any villager. We should ask ourselves: If we lob a few missles into the midst of that thunderhead, will we finally rid ourselves of UBL? When the fighting heats up again, will we (or even should we) put our lives as squarely on the line for a constitutional government that mandates killing Muslims who convert to Christianity?

It has been said that there are many more women's lives at stake which are worth more than one Christian. Who would you defend - half the population who are Muslim and agree that a Muslim convert must be killed, or the Christian?

"Houston, we have a problem..."

Mar. 23rd, 2006 | 12:23 am

EuroPundits describes part of the problem.

Does he name it? No.

Are we finding solutions to it? No.

Are we losing?




Now, the mindset born from that kind of parasitism has basically spread to everything else. Whatever we create they exploit: from cars and planes to democracy and political correctness, from public transportation to explosives and the UN, from open borders to the internet and investment banking. Whatever is good for us can eventually be even better for them and, thus, very bad for us. I cannot think of anything in our civilization right now that is not potentially double-edged.

So, what can we do? If we want to win the war, first we have to disable the enemy’s defenses. Trouble is: they are our own, we created and developed them, though most f the time with very different goals in mind. In a quite perverse way, our worst enemy today is our own creativity and resourcefulness. Should we stop creating or inventing things because they can be used against us? Not at all, because that’s also our main advantage. But, to begin with, we have to keep in mind that whatever we do, think, plan or create may have more functions, can be used to different ends than those for which they were originally intended.

An airliner isn’t anymore a vehicle for taking people from one place to another. In parasitic and/or opportunistic hands it is a weapon for mass murder. It has always been so, though only potentially. That was, however, before we were confronted by a mindset able to systematically benefit from our ideas. The keyword here is “systematically”. Thus, the systematical character of that mindset can only be defeated by a mindset that is even more systematic and comprehensive. Imagine the following: every medicine has its undesired side effects. We take this as something as unfortunate as unavoidable. But there are people out there for whom the true, the real, the main function of any medicine is precisely its evil side effect. They take a look at the instructions that come, say, with an antiviral drug, go directly to the side effects section of it asking themselves how can they make that stuff even more harmful and dangerous.

Let me stress this again: we are not dealing with irrational or dumb but sometimes lucky people. We’re dealing with a very intelligent foe whose mindset we haven’t yet fully began to appreciate. And, besides being at war, we’re also competing with them. They are quick minded and so we have to be even quicker. Unfortunately, they are the ones who are acting, while we are but reacting to them.

1. The True Origin of 'Allah': The Archaeological Record Speaks

Allah - The moongod of the Bible? If so, he's been around a long, long time.


"The archaeological evidence demonstrates that the dominant religion in Arabia was the cult of the moon-god. The Old Testament consistenly rebuked the worship of the moon-god (e.g. Dt.4:19; 17:3; 2 Ki.21:3,5; 23:5; Jer.8:2; 19:13; Zeph.1:5). When Israel fell into idolatry, it was usually to the cult of the moon-god. In Old Testament times, Nabonidus (555-539 BC), the last King of Babylon, built Tayma, Arabia, as a centre od moon-god worship. Segall stated: "South Arabia's stellar religion has always been dominated by the Moon-god in various variations" (Berta Segall, The Iconography of Cosmic Kingship, the Art Bulletin, vol.xxxviii, 1956, p.77). Many scholars have also noticed that the moon-god's name, Sín, is a part of such Arabic words as "Sinai", the "wilderness of Sîn", and so forth."

"When the popularity of the moon-god waned elsewhere, the Arabs remained true to their conviction that the moon-god was the greatest of all gods. While they worshipped 360 gods at the Kabah in Mecca, the moon-god was the chief deity. Mecca was in fact built as a shrine for the moon-god. This is what made it the most sacred site of Arabian paganism."
