Al Qaeda, the Mafia and the Black Gangster Disciples: Brothers of the Same Cesspool

Playground Bully Nelson from the SimpsonsAl Qaeda shows off its playground bullying attitude, showing kinship with the Mafia and ocal thugs like the Black Gangster Disciples in its tit-for-tat perspective:
"No chief of ours had died of a natural death, nor has our blood been spilled without a response," Zawahri said in the video posted on an Islamist Web site, referring to the killing of Abu Laith al-Libi.
Which president is ready to fight this murderous slug?

I think none, not one, not Hillary, Barack, not John.

Hilarious - Mike Huckabee on Saturday Night Live

Hilarious - Mike Huckabee on Saturday Night Live.

All politics aside, Huckabee is quite funny, with a great sense of self-depreciation, timing and wit.

Always a Bridesmaid: Nader announces new bid for White House

With Ralph Nader's announcement, Ron Paul is sweating it out. So is Michael Bloomberg. Mike Gravel too. John McCain has safely virtually locked up the Republicans, and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are chasing down remnant dibs on the Democrats.

The only loser here is Mike Huckabee. He looks like a contender, but is realistically, at this point, in the Ralph Nader group.

Nader will be blogged about, and so his ideas will be heard. Huckabee has said what he's going to say, so any new speech, barring a miraculous comeback, will go to the wind.

This is Nader's week. Supporters of independents and quasi- independents like Paul may shift and so they too will be debated in blogland, but Huckabee's not talking to independents, and is unelected man walking.


By HOPE YEN, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Ralph Nader said Sunday he will run for president as a third-party candidate, criticizing the top White House contenders as too close to big business and pledging to repeat a bid that will "shift the power from the few to the many."

Nader, 73, said most people are disenchanted with the Democratic and Republican parties due to a prolonged Iraq war and a shaky economy. The consumer advocate also blamed tax and other corporate-friendly policies under the Bush administration that he said have left many lower- and middle-class people in debt.

Violence in Belgrade: Looting on Video: Kosovo za patike

In America, we contend with a lot, but among the things we have is peace. I agree that Serbia is not all like this, and doubt these thieves even realize the political opportunitists they have become. I hope they are arrested, and prosecuted accordingly.

Originally called "Swapping Kosovo for a pair of sneakers" Kosovo za patike.

(Note: original video was taken down by the poster, so I have replaced it with another copy someone else posted)

As posted on YouTube by the video owner: gvantanamo
Dear viewers, seeing how this video has become hugely popular I think that is my duty to explain the whole situation.

The first part of the video is happening in a store at Slavija square in Belgrade, Serbia at the time of the torching of a McDonalds restaurant near by, when I by accident recorded these two girls. Two hours later, at Terazije square, I recorded two other girls ("Jesi li nasla broj?"), and shortly after I ran into the blondes from earlier who were emptying a store in Sremska Street. Astonished by their persistence on getting new clothes on a 100% off sale, I decided to further record them.

I would like to thank everyone for their support, and to Albanians, Croatians, Muslims, Germans... Martians and all others who are gloating after this happened, I would like to say that these are only marginal appearances, and that the huge majority of citizens of Serbia are normal and honest people, and I am proud to be one of them.

Postovani gledaoci, uvidevsi da je ovaj video za kratko vreme postigao ogromnu popularnost smatram da mi je duznost da celu situaciju objasnim.

Prvi deo snimka se desava u prodavnici na Slaviji za vreme paljenja Mc Donalds-a i tada sam sasvim slucajno snimio ove dve devojke. Dva sata kasnije na Terazijama sam snimio druge dve devojke ("jesi li nasla broj?"), a nedugo zatim pononovo srecem plavuse sa pocetka koje pustose lokal u Sremskoj ulici. Zaprepasten njihovom upornoscu da dodju do novih krpica na popustu od 100% resio sam da ih detaljnije snimim. Zahvaljujem svima na podrsci, a Albancima, Hrvatima, Muslimanima, Nemcima, ... Marsovcima i svima ostalim koji likuju nakon ovoga zelim da kazem da su ovo ipak samo marginalne pojave, a da su gradjani Srbije u ogromnoj vecini normalni i posteni ljudi i ponosim se sto sam jedan od njih.

Hillary Clinton Steps Off National Stage?

Hillary Clinton looks to be quitting the race. Like my thoughts for Mitt Romney, I think Hillary has begun the fight for Vice President.

Barack Obama has been clear: he will not serve as Vice President. It is, for him, all or nothing.

Not for Hillary. She wants the White House, and is a fighter. Behind her smiling teeth are gritted teeth, and a snarl. She isn't giving up; she's focusing.

The big question for Obama: Will she help or hinder him? Or, would someone like John Edwards, very white and somewhat male bring in the Archier Bunker vote?

"He just lost control and hit the pillar," said Assistant Chief Ron Waldrop, commander of the criminal investigations bureau.

Fidel Castro Joins Quitters Row (And The World Is Happy)

Fidel Castro, that old Cuban dictator, has realized he has become too old and feeble to rule with his famous iron fist over Cuba and has quit.

It is too bad he waited this long, but his ego is such that it took a near-death experience for him to see the light. As a leader, he is now useless, but sadly, Raul Castro will likely step in the role. Raul is equally a dictatorial ass.

Fidel Castro is resigning after nearly a half-century as Cuba's president. The ailing leader says he will not accept a new term when the newly elected Cuban parliament meets on Sunday. (Feb. 19) - AP

Romney Will Be VP? Mitt Romney Supports John McCain

The news that Mitt Romney is endorsing John McCain means one thing to me: Romney is McCain's choice for vice president.

I can see it. McCain asked Romney to step down, and a deal was made.

With this, if true, any Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama arrangement will be very hard to imagine.

If the ticket is McCain/Romney, then the Clinton/Obama folks will have just lost the election in November. McCain will attract the moderate liberals who hate Hillary and are so-so for Obama. Romney will attract conversatives, since no one, deep down, buys into the "McCain is a true conservative" blather. Evangelicals will begrudgingly vote for McCain/Romney over Hillary/Obama. Only evangelicals who accept with Obama's prochoice/progay/anti-Iraq views will support him with another candidate.

Mike Huckabee is still in the race to keep it interesting. He is a just a sparring partner now, a foil to McCain's speech making. Take him out of the game, and the attention swings to the Democrats. He's probably in on the schtick, as he is far more sophisticated than the "He's a Huckster" crowd would naively like to believe.

Patty Solis Doyle Joins the Quitters Band: Hillary Rodham Clinton's Campaign Manager Jumps Ship

Clinton Campaign Manager Calls It Quits
ABC News

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign manager, Patty Solis Doyle, has quit the campaign, ABC News learned Sunday, Feb. 10, 2008.

When news like this comes out, it boils down to the simple question: why?

The answer is simple:

  • If fired, Mrs. Clinton does not believe Doyle, however loyal can bring her victory and dumped her. Hillary stuck with Doyle this long, so it could mean Hillary has become scared.
  • If she resigned, no matter what she is pursuing, Doyle no longer believes in Hillary enough to hold on just a few more months.
  • The only non-suspicious reason is if Doyle has family or health concerns, at which point, no campaign short of Jesus Christ's new kingdom, is as important.
  • In any case, the Barack Obama public relations team is rejoicing.

Rowan Williams, Sharia and the Famous Danish Muslim Cartoons

Rowan Williams, chief honcho of the Anglican Church, or, as he his officially known, Supreme Cheese of the NonEssential Church of England, Cantebury Franchise, has declared that Sharia Law ought to be allowed in England.

Sharia Law, to those unaware of head choppings and related sins of Islam, is based on the Koran. Williams, naturally, as someone claiming to be a Christian, thinks it is fine to support this. Maybe it was the freedom Muslims give Christians in places like Sudan that impressed him?

There's no telling what Willy is up to, but let's remember the view of free speech the Danish Muslim Cartoon fiasco stirred up. A few cartoons that present a view contrary to one Muslims believe caused almost a war in Denmark.

This is what our next president must know what to do about. Whether it is Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, John McCain or Mike Huckabee, or longshot Ron Paul, the world they inherit is by default antiChristian (all but Paul have declared they are Christians), antiAmerican (all seem to prefer American over other countries), and anti-freedom of Women (the National Organization of Women would have a field day in Sudan._

Barack Obama Disses His Own Party's Candidate's Supporters

"I have no doubt that I can get the people who vote for Senator Clinton. ... It's not clear that Senator Clinton can get all the people I'm getting," Barack Obama said.

It comes down for Democrats, according then to Obama whether or not voters are motivated by issues, or by Hillary Clinton. Issue voters, he is implying, with go to him, and not vice versa. She will not get Obama supporters.

That's a bold claim, and it might be true. It likewise suggests against Obama that his supporters are fickle about issues, willing to support him but not her, meaning they prefer Republican stands on issues (Iraq, gun control, prolife and so forth).

In other words, in a strange way, Barack Obama thinks his supporters will be like the way Anne Coulter views Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney supporters. She says she'll back Hillary Clinton rather than John McCain.

No one votes for anyone's issues anymore. They either vote against someone, or for someone's image.

Go figure. I'm lost.

Clinton gets most lobbyist money, McCain most help

Hillary Clinton shows her deft skill at negotiating old money by bringing some of Washington DC's mllions into her hands. In fact, she's strong, able to convince special interests she'll even help them if they give her money.

Dear old Barack Obama had to raise his record funds from ordinary people because, well, it is important he gets their millions so he can give it to the poor (we call them TV stations in Chicago).

Clinton gets most lobbyist money, McCain most help

Jonathan D. Salant
Mon Feb 4, 1:29 PM ET

Feb. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Democrat Hillary Clinton has raised more money from lobbyists than any other presidential candidate while Republican John McCain has more of them assisting his campaign.

Clinton took in $823,087 from registered lobbyists and members of their firms in 2007 and the second-biggest recipient was McCain, who took in $416,321, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a Washington-based group which tracks political giving. Barack Obama, Clinton's rival for the Democratic nomination, doesn't take money from registered lobbyists, although he received $86,282 from employees of firms that lobby, according to the center.

McCain has 26 registered lobbyists as campaign advisers or fundraisers compared with 11 for Clinton and none for Obama, according to review of records compiled by Public Citizen, a Washington-based group that favors stronger disclosure laws for lobbyists.

Even as they pledge to rein in special interests, the leading Democratic and Republican candidates are relying on lobbyists to bring in campaign cash by raising money from other donors, a technique known as bundling.

Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama: She Disses Him and What He Says

Hillary Clinton, having vowed to minimize her trash talking, has released the following from her website, in clear praise of her opponent, Barack Obama. (read: just the opposite).

MEMO: New Information
To: Interested Parties
From: Mark Penn, Chief Strategist
Date: Sunday, February 03, 2008
Re: New Information

Just yesterday I noted that people had very limited information on Sen. Barack Obama as we go into millions of people voting on the two candidates.

And then in the last two days we see three stories that illustrate the point very clearly about what Sen. Obama says about his views and record and what journalists find when they dig into the facts:

1) The New York Times on its front page explains how Sen. Barack Obama told voters he stood up to the nuclear power industry and how he passed a bill to require reports of any radioactive leaks after hearing from his constituents. But The Times discovers, after a lengthy examination, that the bill was watered down after meeting with Exelon, the company whose plants created the issue and whose key executives are big contributors and bundlers to his campaign. Answering written questions for the NY Times, the campaign, in the words of the paper, never "directly" explains why Sen. Obama would tell voters he passed a bill that in fact was not passed and did not become law.

2) The Chicago Tribune features a similar story on a different topic. While Sen. Obama on the stump tells people about the plight of Maytag workers who lost their jobs, ("Obama's fundraising collides with his rhetoric") the Tribune documents that the union covering those workers believes they got no help from the Senator, who was again taking significant contributions and bundling from one of the company's directors and biggest investors.

3) And yesterday there was an AP story where Senator Obama told the voters of Idaho: "And then there are people who say, 'Well, he doesn't believe in the Second Amendment,' even though I come from a state -- we've got a lot of hunters in downstate Illinois. And I have no intention of taking away folks' guns." But he didn't disclose to those voters, as the AP said that "he does support gun control and has a record of voting for it in the Illinois Senate. He backed limiting handgun purchases to one a month, but he made no attempts to ban them." When he originally ran for the state legislature 12 years ago, he filled out a questionnaire saying he "supported banning the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns." He gave the voters of Idaho no indication whatsoever of either his record in the State Senate or his prior views on the questionnaire.

I Don't Care Anymore: Why We Aren't Voting Values and Issues

I don't care that his values are different than mine. He's so refreshing, and he's black. We can make history by voting him in. What America needs today in Washington DC is a man who stands for hope and history, not for what I believe.

I don't care that she's maligned as dishonest and a feminist, as lifetime politician who carpetbagged into New York. She's a woman. What America needs today in Washington DC is a person who is not a man. She'll care more about the issues. I don't have to agree with her views, just that the change happens.

I don't care that his values seem to change. He's so firm and leader-like. What America needs today in Washington DC is a man who leads. What he leads is not relevant to me.

I don't care that he agrees quietly with issues I morally oppose. He's an American hero. What America needs today in Washington DC is a hero, one who will stand brave against our enemies.

I don't care that he seems to be over-the-top in issues I'm mild about. He goes to my church, and that's enough. What America needs today in Washington DC is a believer who believes in his heart what's true. He'll care more about the issues.
