Hate from the Left

We wonder what "Cub Scout Leader" has to do with serial murder until we realize the hatred of the "MSM" for the Boy Scouts' policy of no known homosexuals. Then the connection and bias becomes evident. They are certainly not able to make the connection on the crime of Murder By Judge in the Schiavo case.:

Cub Scout Leader Arrested in BTK Killings
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A 31-year manhunt for a serial killer who taunted police with letters about his crimes ended Saturday when authorities said they finally caught up with the man who called himself BTK and linked him to at least 10 murders.

Definition of Liberals

Mark Alexander has summed up the hypocrisy and essence of the modern liberal so accurately that there is little room for anything but nodding observation(to quote Instapundit, read the whole thing):

Liberals constantly assert their First Amendment rights, except, of course, when it comes to religion. Here, they firmly adhere to the doctrines of secular atheism. They believe that second-hand smoke is more dangerous than marijuana smoke. They believe that one nut accused of bombing an Alabama abortion clinic deserves far more law-enforcement attention than Jihadi cells planning the 9/11 attacks. They call 9/11 victims "Hitlerian" while calling their murderers "oppressed." They hate SUVs, unless imported and driven by soccer moms. They believe trial lawyers save lives and doctors kill people. They believe the solution to racism is to treat people differently on the basis of their skin color. They deride moral clarity because they can't survive its scrutiny. They promote peace but foment division and hate -- ad infinitum.


Murder By Judge

Today we had a three-week stay of execution for Terri Schiavo. There is a remote chance that she'll be allowed to live beyond that. I believe the judge that originally ordered her executed is maybe having second thoughts.

Stupid journalists

How long is it going to take for so-called "credentialled" journalists to get their story correct? It probably will never happen since it interferes with their left-wing bias:

Bush put Senate Republicans and Democrats on a collision course last week when he renominated 20 judicial nominees who failed to win Senate confirmation during his first term. In addition, the president may soon have the opportunity to make his first nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court
This idiot's name is Thomas Ferraro, and the correct number of re-nominations is 12. The total nominations including first time is 20.


Murder by Judge

Clayton Cramer has the perfect solution for the Schiavo family:

How To Save Terry Schiavo's Life

Have the State of Florida convict her of a capital felony ("aggravated vegetativeness"); then the ACLU will file suit to keep her alive.

Murder by Judge

The murder by judge episode is continued until Friday. Another 3 days of life and safety from murder for Terri Schiavo and her parents.

Florida's New Paradigm

With reference to the Terry Schiavo case, we must add the new crime "Murder by Judge" to the more commonly known "Suicide by Cop". I still haven't figured out what crime she committed to receive a Death Sentence affirmed by all the relevant courts.


Atlantic B...S...

Mark Steyn summarizes the meaning of the President's current overseas trip with a discussion of the unpleasant future facing Europe:

But, in the broader sense vis-à-vis Europe, the administration is changing the tone precisely because it understands there can be no substance. And, if there's no substance that can be changed, what's to quarrel about? International relations are like ex-girlfriends: if you're still deluding yourself you can get her back, every encounter will perforce be fraught and turbulent; once you realise that's never gonna happen, you can meet for a quick decaf latte every six – make that 10 – months and do the whole hey-isn't-it-terrific-the-way-we're-able-to-be-such-great-friends routine because you couldn't care less. You can even make a few pleasant noises about her new romance (the so-called European Constitution) secure in the knowledge he's a total loser.

Moyers fisked

CSW provides a letter that he attributes to Michael Curran (American Thinker) which puts the hypocrisy and elitism of Mr Moyers in perspective.......relating him to the infamous Lyndon Johnson commercial of a little girl dying in a nuclear explosion. Maybe political advertising HAS advanced over the years since Moyers was in charge:

Dear Mr. Moyers:

I’ve been meaning to write you for quite some time, in fact, if the truth were known, I originally intended to communicate with you in 1964, when as Special Assistant to Lyndon Johnson, you approved that television ad showing a small girl picking daisy petals as a nuclear blast in the background foreshadows, not only her demise but also, the deaths of thousands. Johnson’s voice then came on to tell us, “…We must love each other or we must die.” [!]

Were you trying to set new standards for your successors in coming elections? At any rate, it worked! Johnson trounced Senator Goldwater in the presidential election of 1964, 61% to 38% and your stylized demonization of Republicans continues to this day.

USS Jimmy Carter

I think it would be almost impossible for me or many other military personnel to serve proudly on the boat which will be known forever as the "USS Killer Rabbit". The shame that man has brought upon history and his country knows no bounds.


Killer Rabbit in the Soviet Union

Thanks to Front Page (HT to Powerline and Betsy) for reminding us that Lurch wasn't the first Presidential candidate to beg for foreign intervention in an election. The first was a sitting President - Carter. I wonder (he said sarcastically) where Lurch got his inflammatory language during the recent war (election):

.........Carter expressed his concern about and opposition to Reagan's defense buildup. He boldly told Dobrynin that Moscow would be better off with someone else in the White House. If Reagan won, he warned, "There would not be a single agreement on arms control, especially on nuclear arms, as long as Reagan remained in power."............

............Carter was not the only Democrat to make clear to the Russians where their loyalty lay. As the election neared in 1984, Dobrynin recalls meetings with Speaker of the House Thomas P. "Tip" O'Neill.

O'Neill told Dobrynin that no effort should be spared to prevent "that demagogue Reagan" from being re-elected.

Soviet documents report that O'Neill told Dobrynin: "If that happens, Reagan will give vent to his primitive instincts and give us a lot of trouble, probably, put us on the verge of a major armed conflict. He is a dangerous man.".........

Lies or lazy mistakes?

"Americans United Blasts Bush's 'Stubbornness' for Re-Submitting Judicial Nominees".... this headline hides the lazy, careless mistake (or is it deliberate lying as proposed by David Brock) of equating all 20 nominations instead of the only 12 that were re-nominations.

These people must be both venal and stupid. It's a shame that they also populate the majority of the lame-stream media as well: - A religious watchdog group is blasting the Bush administration for re-submitting the nominations of judges the group has urged the Senate to defeat. On Monday, Bush re-nominated 20 failed judicial nominees, some of which have been denounced by liberals as "right-wing extremists."

Bushitler, prostitution, and depression

Mark Steyn takes the full measure of postmodern Western culture:

Here are three small news items from around the world you might have missed:

1) An unemployed waitress in Berlin faces the loss of her welfare benefits after refusing a job as a prostitute in a legalized brothel.

2) A British court has ruled that a suspected terrorist from Algeria cannot be detained in custody because jail causes him to suffer a ''depressive illness.''

3) Seventeen-year-old Jeffrey Eden of Charlestown, R.I., has been awarded an A by his teacher and the ''Silver Key'' in the Rhode Island Scholastic Art Awards for a diorama titled ''Bush/Hitler and How History Repeats Itself.''.............

....................It's an open question whether the West will survive this twilight struggle: Europe almost certainly won't, America might; on the other hand, the psychosis to which much of the culture is in thrall may eventually reach a tipping point into mass civilizational suicide. And then the new barbarians will inherit, and young Master Eden will end his days pining for the rosy-hued nostalgia for the Bushitler tyranny.

Alternative means true,mainstream means fabricated

Kudlow speaks accurately so vividly that I must re-publish it ( emphases mine):

The blogosphere has gained near immediate influence and credibility with its ability to widely disseminate alternative media coverage. (These days, “alternative” more often than not means “true.”)


Group vs individual identity

James Lileks discusses at length the essential nature of the Democrats as primarily for "diverse" groups and against individuals. He's right on target. A parallel is seen today in the screams of rage about the US Budget as proposed by the current administration:

.......But for better or worse the Democrats are seen as the party of identity politics. Beinart probably sees that as an opportunity rather than a problem, inasmuch as he believes the Democrat can forge a coalition to enact broad programs that benefit all. Nice in theory, but I'm doubtful about how it works down here. The question isn’t whether like-minded sorts should get together to promote a common agenda - it’s whether the organizations that arise from this arrangement actually promote the welfare of their constituents, or exist to claim constant crisis and keep their own sinecures intact...........

Academic unseriousness

Mark Goldblatt sums up the correct way to handle the tenured professor Churchill - ignore him and his academic fraud perpetuating peers and superiors to allow them to sit in their own offal:

The fact that he has tenure must, I'm afraid, be taken into account. Firing him, or forcing him to resign, might be morally satisfying but would be a tactical error. It would confer martyr status on him, and it would be interpreted by his students, and by Churchill himself, as punishment for speaking the truth to power. Besides, the fault here does not lie with Churchill; he's a symptom, not a disease. The fault lies, generally, with the sick academic culture in which he has thrived, and, specifically, with the administrative weasels at the University of Colorado who have repeatedly rewarded his dubious critical achievements. What should be done with Churchill, therefore, is...nothing. His notoriety should stand as an ongoing monument to the decay of intellectual standards in higher education, and his professorship as an ongoing monument to the intellectual cowardice of the school which hired and tenured him.

Thus, inadvertently, Ward Churchill might teach us all a lesson.

Drinking on duty

Did everyone notice the depiction of the cop drinking on duty from a pocket flask in the Ford "Frozen in Fargo" Superbowl ad? You can reprise it here.
Shades of Eason-gate. You would think the sober police would be offended.


Bill Moyers - Lying Arrogance

Excerpt of a letter from James Watt to Bill Moyers (H/T Powerline):

I have never thought, believed or said such words. Nor have I ever said anything similar to that thought which could be interpreted by a reasonable person to mean anything similar to the quote attributed to me.

Because you are at least average in intelligence and have a basic understanding of Christian beliefs, you know that no Christian would believe what you attributed to me.

Because you have had the privilege of serving in the White House under President Johnson, you know that no person believing such a thing would be qualified for a presidential appointment, nor would he be confirmed by the United States Senate, and if confirmed and said such a thing would he be allowed to continue in service.

Since you must have known such a statement would not have been made and you refused or failed to do any primary research on this supposed quote, what was your motive in printing such a damnable lie?

UPDATE: Powerline(H/T Instapundit) says the arrogant leftist SOB apologized to Mr Watt. He claims he'll put it in writing........we shall's not like the hypocritical holy hater.

UPDATE 2: I was right. The hypocrite hedged in his so-called "apology". Hate triumphs on the left as always:

I found your policies abysmally at odds with what I understand as a Christian to be our obligation to be stewards of the earth," Moyers said. "I found it baffling, when in our conversation of today, you were unaware of how some fundamentalist interpretations of the Bible influence political attitudes toward the environment."

Pissing through the Middle East

Mark Steyn ties together the similarities between the thinking of our European "betters" and the recent fable of a man pissing his way out of an avalanche:

Now I take the point that "democracy" - as in elections - isn't every thing. In the development of successful nations, the universal franchise is usually the last piece of the puzzle, as it was in Britain. Anyone can hold an election: Mugabe did; so did Charles Taylor, the recently retired Psycho-for-Life of Liberia. The world's thugocracies have got rather skilled at being just democratic enough to pass muster with Jimmy Carter and the international observers: they kill a ton of people, put it on hold for six weeks and then, when the UN monitors have moved on, pick up their machetes and resume business as usual.

Dynamic Europe?

Mark Steyn turns his attention to Europe and their puppets in the Democratic Party, summing up the contrast between talking and doing:

Anyway, in his second major speech of the week, Reid said we need a ''Marshall Plan for America.'' Apparently, the United States of 2005 is in as dire condition as the Europe of 1945: its great cities reduced to rubble, and its people starving and desperate for work. Maybe it just seems that way from the ruins of Democratic Party headquarters.

In his third major speech of the week, Reid said . . . well, at the time of writing, he hasn't given a third major speech, but I do hope he does. For every year this guy's on TV as the official face of the party, you can kiss three Democratic Senate seats goodbye. Right now, the Dems are all exit and no strategy.

Churchill redux

When will these "academics" admit the truth - they invited him BECAUSE of his offensive viewpoint and language. The problem is that it's not offensive to academia, who ratify his vitriol and hate of America:

President Ronald Crutcher withdrew the invitation amid concerns about public safety, college spokesman Michael Graca said.....

......Rey said faculty members who invited Churchill knew his views about Americans Indians were controversial. They didn't know about his essay on Sept. 11.

"I don't think this is what they expected," Rey said.......

The last above statement is a deliberate lie to cut and run from the heat.


Press targeting"

Wonder if Eason Jordan of CNN has any insight into this kidnapping and "targetting". Maybe he's willing to blame this on the US military, too. Notice the dispatch doesn't mention uniform or not::

Gunmen have kidnapped an Italian journalist in Baghdad, the latest in a series of brazen abductions but the first since Iraq's election.

Giuliana Sgrena, a journalist with communist Rome newspaper Il Manifesto, was snatched from the street as she conducted interviews near Baghdad University.


Privileged elite

VDH explains the thinking of our "left-wing betters" in ways that they use themselves, debunking several of the obnoxious liberal tropes of the day:

....Thus we now expect that the New York Times, Harper's, Le Monde, U.N. functionaries who call us "stingy," French diplomats, American writers and actors will all (1) live a pretty privileged life; (2) in recompense "feel" pretty worried and guilty about it; (3) somehow connect their unease over their comfort with a pathology of the world's hyperpower, the United States; and (4) thus be willing to risk their elite status, power, or wealth by very brave acts such as writing anguished essays, giving pained interviews, issuing apologetic communiqués, braving the rails to Davos, and barking off-the-cuff furious remarks about their angst over themes (1) through (3) above. What a sad contrast they make with far better Iraqis dancing in the street to celebrate their voting.....
....Why would the world listen to a stumbling George Bush when it could be mesmerized by a poet, biographer, aristocrat, and metrosexual of the caliber of a Monsieur Dominique de Villepin? Why praise brave Iraqis lining up to vote, while at the same hour the defeated John Kerry somberly intones on Tim Russert's show that he really did go into Cambodia to supply arms to the mass-murdering Khmer Rouge — a statement that either cannot be true or is almost an admission of being a party to crimes against humanity if it is.......

Ward Churchill - fake Indian and genuine Nazi

Indian Country Today discusses the fraudulent "Native" identity of "Professor" Ward Churchill and characterizes his hateful speech and writings as no honor to the Native American Movement:

......Being in the crucible of hostility is not new to the chip-on-the-shoulder professor, who has become a celebrity for jumping into the polemic melee over issues big and small, internal and external to the Native world. Even in the question of personal identity, the professor's position is controversial. Churchill's Indian status is not verifiable in the usual ways of checking into tribal membership. We are expansive here from a national position on recognized and non-recognized tribes, southern nations and global indigenous people, but the question of relations and proper belonging in the tribal circles in the United States and Canada is generally verifiable for Indian observers and such appears to be completely lacking in Churchill's case. He has claimed membership in the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee, but reliable representatives from the tribe deny Churchill is or ever was, or has blood relatives on their rolls. He was granted an ''associate certificate'' by a former leader of the tribe (later impeached) for services supposedly rendered, not due to blood relations - but even the tribe declines to exactly identify what that means.

Discerning indigenous identity is not an exact science, but it has its rules. It would not be a primary issue relative to research and writing of producers from any quarter, except Churchill represents himself as a major spokesman for Indian people through his participation in a branch of AIM and his claim to Cherokee origins. So far, nothing whatsoever has surfaced that gives evidence to Churchill's claims to having Cherokee Indian origins. Given the intense antagonism and attention focused on Churchill, his biography in this context is likely to be further scrutinized by the University of Colorado, the media, and others who were led to understand he was an American Indian professional at the time of his hiring........
Now if we could just get a transcript of the treasonous pronouncements of Eason Jordan, we could maybe induce him to resign from public discourse also. His hatred is of the same unthinking ideology found in Mr Churchill's polemics.

UPDATE: Denver Post has further revelations about the "truthfulness " of Mr Churchill.

UPDDATE 2: Rocky Mountain News chimes in. He's a fraud in all things!

Only the Hostile and Hateful Need Apply

From Boston (where else?) comes an analysis of a reporter who doesn't fit their profile of a "journalist" - hateful, hostile, anti-american. How dare the White House allow questions from such a "plant". "Must be on the payroll.":

WASHINGTON -- The Bush administration has provided White House media credentials to a man who has virtually no journalistic background, asks softball questions to the president and his spokesman in the midst of contentious news conferences, and routinely reprints long passages verbatim from official press releases as original news articles on his website.
It's a shame they don't investigate the treasonous acts of their own side - "Xmas in Cambodia with Gun-Running to the Communists", etc.


Plastic Soldiers

Only the Democrat-owned MSM could participate in this (via Instapundit) (posting on Tim Blair):


We were warned that Bush would turn Iraq into a puppet regime, but none of us suspected that he’d use actual puppets.

Just as well the Mujahideen Squadrons (under-11 division) are rounding up these puppet soldiers before they can be bent into combat-ready positions and left lying around a bedroom somewhere. Instapundit has a complete roundup.

  1. This is the sort of thing that I could actually believe was a CIA operation to make the insurgents look desperate and foolish. Or maybe make the AP look desperate and foolish. Hell, both.

    But would the CIA take the risk of letting something so obviously fake get into the media’s hands where it could never be disproved?

    Can you imagine if CBS had come out with that photo? Months later there would still be people saying that no one proved it was a fake.

    Posted by Sortelli on 02/02 at 08:02 AM • #

  2. Update: The terrorists have released their plastic hostage unharmed. President Bush is flying to Iraq to bring him a plastic turkey.
