Well, Hello World Conqueror!

Once upon a time ago at the end of the independent comics boom my landlady bought a comic book featuring a bunch of well constructed young ladies with a set of personal firearms that would impress Sergeant Rambo. One of the running gags in the book was that the young ladies would go into the low moan mode whenever someone used the phrase "sociopolitical implications." This small point of plot has since become a running joke between my landlady and myself.

"Yes, Les?"
"Sociopolitical implications."
"Ohhhhhh! Ohhhhhh!"
"Just checking..."

The reason I brought up this bit of personal history is that there are some people -- who are either members of, or closely associated with, the Homintern -- who are apparently whining about the politics of sexual orientation being a factor in the flop of a recently released motion picture:

Alexander has proved to be the Thanksgiving weekend's biggest flop, and while it is a portrait of a legendary leader who ruled far-away lands more than 300 years before the birth of Christ, it has brutally exposed the cultural and moral divide which slices America in two.

The three-hour, big budget epic, starring Colin Farrell, Colin Farrell's shockingly bad blond hair-do and Angelina Jolie has dared to suggest what most historians have long taken for granted - that Alexander was bisexual. And that gets rather different responses in different parts of the US.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation says the $150m (£79m) film breaks new ground for a big budget epic because it shows boyhood friend Hephaestion "as the true love of Alexander's life". A line from the film says: "Alexander was defeated only once - by Hephaestion's thighs."

But conservative Christians have loudly denounced Alexander as "pro-gay" propaganda from Tinseltown, insisting that Alexander was a firmly hetero hero. To add to the film's problems, the public has stayed away from what was to be the big movie of the Thanksgiving weekend.

Big Alex liked guys too? So what?

No serious military historian, or any of us who actually read serious military historians, ever made an issue of Alexander's well documented sexual habits. And if there was anything about Alexander that I was positively impressed with, apart from his use of applied reason to win battles against overwheming odds, it the fact that he suffered a punctured lung in battle and survived in spite of the slightly more advanced than witch-doctory state of medical practice at the time. First aid for the sucking chest wound was a big part of battlefield first aid as taught at the Benning School for Boys when I attended back in the spring of 1982. And it remained a part of the skill qualification testing throughout my time in the army.

But Alexander as the ultimate soldier of his time was apparently not the subject of Oliver Stone's film.

It was apparent in the block of promotional documentaries shown on the History Channel that Alexander was going to be, as my landlady put it, a big-budget soap opera featuring oiled musclemen in leather for the gay guys, large breasted women for the straight guys, and a few straight warriors for the ladies in the audience. In short, as I would put it, this movie was going to be just another Hollywood clusterf**k.

Stone made casting choices that would have been questionable under normal circumstances but are totally senseless in this film. A peroxided Irishman as Alex. Val Kilmer, who was apparently still channeling Jim Morrison, as the not so dear old dad. And that over-tanned Hollywood glamdroid with a bad euro-accent Angelina Jolie as mommy dearest. Really, Jolie comes across as overly artificial in appearance, that is fake, to the point of being ugly. And given the actual ethnic composition of the Macedonian and Greek population at the time I would say that a certain 43-year old Minnesota hausfrau would have been a better casting choice. But then would I have to admit to being a bit biased.

But the real deal-killer with respect to this film was the fact that it was directed by Oliver Stone. The communist-thug hugger who has made a career out of cinematically trashing the values of Western Civilization and trashing America in particular. I personally suspect that this is why a lot people chose to see other movies or stayed home altogether.

As for myself, I won't pay to see Alexander, but I might catch it when its shown on the History Channel.

So Anyway

So anyway I will hit 44 (or to put it more accurately, 44 will hit me) sometime next week.

There will be no celebrations of my birthday.

Does everyone understand?

Pledge This!

Dr. John Ray put the argument over the Pledge of Alliegence in perspective by linking to an interesting piece on the origin and intended purpose of the pledge:

Francis Bellamy and his cousin and cohort, the author Edward Bellamy, wanted government to take over all schools as a socialist monopoly, end all of the better alternatives, and use government schools to produce an "industrial army" (a Bellamy term) explicitly modeled
upon the military in order to nationalize the economy and create a society of totalitarian socialism as described in the book "Looking Backward" by Edward Bellamy. It explains the modern Military-Socialist complex. The Bellamy boys actively promoted what they called "military socialism." Part of the plan was the pledge.

The Bellamys and the pledge influenced the hate-spewing paramilitary societies of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (62 million dead), the People's Republic of China (35 million dead), and the horrid National Socialist German Workers' Party (21 million dead). (Death tolls from Professor R. J. Rummel's book "Death by Government" which is also available).

Most so-called conservatives are ignorant of the pledge's deplorable past, and to the extent they do know, they cover it up. Republican socialists have been duped into robotically chanting the pledge and there are probably socialists in-the-know who laugh silently at the spectacles.

There's another piece on the pledge featuring an interesting photograph.

When I left the public school system twenty-five years ago I promised myself that I would never subject a child of my own to a public school.

Banning the pledge would be a good start on the long overdue process of de-communizing the schools.

More Narcissistic Whining

The problem with being angry with one's self, as opposed to merely wallowing in self pity, is that one cannot sleep.

The problem is, or now I should say was, that I made a bad snap decision at a social event. It was a high school class reunion. I stepped up to the greeting table and picked up my name tag and then took one look at the gathered crowd. The thought then hit me in the head like a twenty-pound sledge hammer,


I went back out to my truck and whined to myself for about five minutes. If I had simply drove away at this point I could have returned with a minimum of fuss and bother. But what I did was to walk back into the event venue and return my name tag to the nice ladies at the greeting table, apologized, and walked away. Thus I made what is by all appearances an irreversible mistake.

The metaphysical joke here is that I registered for the event so I that wouldn't go into the self-rebuke mode for not showing up at all.

Deep Thought

I can tune out or ignore every voice of criticism except one, my own.

It appears that I may be my own worst critic.

(But Les, isn't this an example of narcissistic whining? Shhhhhhhh!)

So Anyway

Yes, tonight sucked, but it my fault and my fault alone.

When I retorically asked, who in their right mind would want to listen to a load of narcissistic whining, even though the question is applicable to the present day Left, I was really speaking of myself when I wrote the question.

And Then There's This Other Doctor...

John Ray (M.A.; Ph.D.) is having some fun with a Leftist Ninny:

But let's have a look at a bit more weirdness. Take this Orwellian statement: "This tendency has finally metastacized into a genuinely dangerous situation, one in which the GOP has become host to a Stalinist movement that exhibits so many of the traits of fascism that the resemblance is now unmistakable." Quite aside from the fact that this great intellectual cannot even spell "metastasized", he is asking us to believe that the people who opposed Communism for decades and finally destroyed it utterly are themselves communists! I guess it's not impossible but seeing that the GOP and their Christian allies have always advocated the exact opposite of communism, the writer is clearly in cloud-cuckoo land. If you can say that free-enterprise=Stalinism, you might as well say black=white. I guess that a Leftist "postmodernist" would have no problem in doing exactly that, however.

Let's face it, the Left appears to have serious difficulty with certain very basic concepts, such as REALITY.

Deep Thought

Who in their right mind would want to listen to a load of narcissistic whining?

It fits...

I'm Back

I don't really have anything to say at the moment, I'm just back from Mom's house.

It's not like I have anything to say about the relationship between tyrants and the tyrannized or anything like that. Or how someone appointing themselves to be an elite over ordinary humanity is really the first step in the process of self-dehumanization. I mean that would take a great deal of deep thought that I really don't have time for as that I have to deliver pizza today and then show up late for a party to which I was invited tonight.

(My lack of God! Les has a social life again!)

And Now For Something Completely Different

I'm off to Mom's for Thanksgiving.

Another Doctor Is In

Walter Williams has a few things to say about the bashing of our new Secretary of State, such as:

Dr. Condoleezza Rice, President Bush's national security adviser and now his secretary of state nominee, has been the subject of nasty, demeaning and disrespectful cartoons and commentary. Some of the worst has come from people like Julian Bond, chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, who said on TV's "America's Black Forum" that he agreed with "The Boondocks" cartoonist Aaron McGruder's characterization of Dr. Rice as "a murderer." A lead article in Black Commentator said, "Condoleezza Rice is the purest expression of the race traitor. No polite description is possible." Those kinds of attacks by blacks have emboldened guilt-ridden white liberals to join in as seen by the recent cartoons of Pat Oliphant and Garry Trudeau ("Doonesbury").

The term race traitor was used by Neo-Nazi trash like the late and unlamented William Pierce to mean someone who does not unquestionably submit to the will of the self-appointed leaders of the race. The penalty for race treason, if the new National Socialists had the power to carry it out, was death.

If you must know, yes, I have read The Turner Diaries. I would liken the experience of reading it to being the intellectual equivalent of swimming in raw sewage.

If you want a more complete view of the nazification of the Left in America then I recommend that you read The Ominous Parallels by Leonard Peikoff.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.


Here is a message for all those whiny narcissistic jerks who have taken upon themselves the task of apologizing for the re-election of President Bush:

The Doctor Is In

Michael Hurd on Comrade Hillary and her political ambitions:

You can be sure that Hillary Clinton's concern with Republican rule is not about improper government control over individuals. Her concern is that it's not her power. She views -- to some degree correctly -- the Republicans as the party of less government control over people (e.g. lower taxes) and greater determination to use military force against enemies of our country. She doesn't like this. She wants more power over people; not less. And she wants to be the Power Broker in Chief more than she can begin to express. Her husband's Presidency was a means to this ultimate end. When and if she manages to get the power we all know she wants, you can better believe she will not be afraid to use it.

Were she to win in 2008 we can be sure of two things. First she will be firmly in touch with her inner Stalin. Second, that there will be no presidential election in 2012. People with a bad case of powerlust are fairly predictable that in that way.

President Hillary Rodham Clinton? You heard it here first.

Actually, given her basic beliefs and goals, its been anticipated by us in Pachyderm Party for a rather long time.

So what would be the likely outcome of Hillary being elected? (Or more likely, "elected".) A couple of years ago I wrote a story set in an official wargaming universe. Here is a conversation between a Terran naval officer and an alien non-commissioned officer:

Ian saw that the old bakery building at 22nd Avenue and Washington Street was boarded up again, another attempt to redevelop the property without demolishing the original single storey brick structure had failed.

Plastered all over the structure were posters showing a black and white photograph of a sixty-ish woman, with short fake blonde hair, a standard nine-millimeter service pistol was aimed at her head. The hammer of the pistol in the photograph was blurred as though it were falling on the firing pin.

Over the photograph on the poster in all capital letters was the one word, REMEMBER.

“I’m sorry sir,” said the Chief as he pointed to the posters, “but I’m not fully familiar with that bit of Terran history.”

“Well,” Ian replied, “That’s Saint Hillary, a martyr for the holy cause of Democracy. She was just a stupid old bitch who believed that being democratically elected somehow constituted an excuse for abusive and destructive behavior.”

Actually no, being elected is not an excuse for totalitarian socialist behavior of any degree. If the Left in America can't live with this then I'm afraid that we'll have to see to it that they don't.

In any case we need to start working right [expletive] now to defeat Hillary.

Or else.

That's one big freezer...

Topping Film Threats Frigid 50: The Coldest People in Hollywood 2004 is the massive propagandist Michael Moore.
" Michael’s alleged “limousine liberal” ways are being exposed in a new documentary entitled “Michael Moore Hates America.” The film (hitting theaters in limited release) features regular schlub Mike Wilson who seeks out Moore in an effort to question the controversial filmmaker’s techniques. All Wilson wants is to interview Michael – and ala “Roger and Me,” Moore completely disses the young filmmaker, evading his request for an interview and berating him at a public event. In one particularly damning sequence."

FALLUJAH, Iraq – Marines from the 1st Marine Division shot and killed an insurgent, who while faking dead, opened fire on the Marines that were conducting a security and clearing patrol through the streets here at approximately 3:45 p.m. on 21 November.

For more information, please contact Capt Bradley Gordon, public affairs officer, 1st Marine Division,

I have some advice for those Muslims who, being in touch with their inner Osama, or the Blue Zone Leftists who are getting in touch with their inner Mao or their inner Trotsky (the founder and first commander of the Soviet Army):

Any attempt to overthrow the United States Government will fail.

In the event that you are cut off and surrounded by the regular armed forces (I very seriously doubt that any group of civilian gun owners are going to be taking prisoners) you will have only two options.

One, drop your weapon and walk out with your hands up with the palms facing forward.

The other option is to point your personal weapon so that the path of bullet will pass through your brain, scream, "my [expletive] false-god is great!" And pull the trigger. Lefties may substitute "Heil Hillary" in the place of any Islamic expression of faith.

Any action between these options will earn you a free round of ammunition.

Are there any questions on this block of instruction?

The More Things Change...

I'm presently reading MILITARY INTELLIGENCE BLUNDERS AND COVER-UPS, by Colonel John Hughes-Wilson. At the end of the chapter covering the Falklands War (which occured entirely during the time I was in basic infantry training at Fort Benning) there was this passage about the attitude of the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office:

The final word on the Falklands deserves to be given to the FCO, a much-maligned body of men and women among their euphoric colleagues in the British armed services after the war. As the Royal Marines and the Paras of the victory parade marched through the City of London in October 1982, an aspiring FOC mandarin leaned across to a member of the Defence Intelligence Staff on the balcony overlooking the pageant.

"You know, Harry, this all shows the results of letting some desperately unpopular tinpot autocrat use a crazy foreign military adventure to court popularity and get off the hook at home."

The DIS man nodded knowingly, "Charles, you're absolutely right. Yes, Galtieri and the junta really blew it."

The FCO man snorted in disgust. "Galtieri? Harry, I'm talking about Margaret Thatcher!"

I certainly hope that Dr. Rice can make some progress toward cleaning up the mess at the Department of Treason State.

There is a reason that the Greens are commonly called tree huggers, trees can not bite nor can they tell the environmentalists to bugger off.

Two Items

United States Secret Service and Chilean security get into a loud dispute:

Several Chilean and American agents got into a pushing and shoving match outside the cultural center where the dinner was held. The incident happened after Bush and his wife, Laura, had just posed for pictures on a red carpet with the host of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, Chilean President Ricardo Lagos and his wife, Luisa Duran.

As Bush stepped inside, Chilean agents closed ranks at the door, blocking the president's agents from following. Stopping for more pictures, Bush noticed the fracas and turned back. He reached through the dispute and pulled his agent from the scrum and into the building.

Can you imagine Mr. John "appeasement-to-the-point-of-treason" Kerry stepping into the fracas? President Bush is at his best when steps out of the politician mode.

Meanwhile on the Left Coast:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Shoppers in San Francisco may soon be paying for their grocery sacks.

City officials are considering charging grocery stores 17 cents apiece for the bags to discourage use of plastic sacks.

And the [expletive] control freaks of the Left are mystified as to why we won't allow them to exercise power over us.

Another Opinion

Citizen Smash, a Navy Reserve officer, has this to say about the Rules of Engagement:


What are your questions on this block of instruction?

The Doctor Is In

Thomas Sowell, an ex-marine if I recall correctly, has something to say about shooting terrorists in Fallujah:

Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and the United Nations can all talk about "the Geneva Convention." But that agreement on the rules of war has never applied to combatants not wearing the uniform of any country that is a party to the Geneva Convention.

Terrorists wear no uniform and show no mercy, as they have repeatedly demonstrated by beheading innocent civilians, including women.

Why any such terrorists should be captured alive in the first place is a real question. Maybe they have information that could be useful. But every terrorist our troops try to capture alive increases the risk of death for American combat troops.

Their information better be damned important for that.

Mister Terrorist could have stayed home and lived a human life, but instead he chose to exist as an animal and prey upon the innocent and the helpless.

We don't need to make the effort to mentally dehumanize our enemy when he has already chosen to dehumanize himself.

Dealing With The Enemy

Today's Cox and Forkum cartoon:

Check Your Six

The late Mr. Jihadi could have stayed home and lived a normal human life. Instead he chose to be a member of a band of brigands. As we used to say at the Benning School for Boys, "he raised his own hand."

(Les now performs a mock Nazi salute)
(In his pajamas?)
(He's a blogger, of course he is.)

Under normal battlefield conditions anyone who is not absolutely signifying their surrender is properly considered a target. Given the jihadi habits of booby-trapping bodies and attacking while faking a surrender it's a bloody miracle that any of them are being taken alive.

And if the Left want to whine about the American armed forces committing atrocities then they are a bunch of bloody hypocrites. The armed forces of their beloved Soviet Union routinely carried out massacres of POW's and civilians during the Second World War starting with the mass extermination of thousands of Polish Officers and Sergeants in 1939 in their half of Poland. Which the Soviet Socialists then conveniently blamed on their competitors and former allies, the National Socialists of Germany. (If anything, the Nazi-Soviet War of 1941-1945 could be characterized as a drive-by shooting carried out on an industrial scale.)

When I was in the U.S. Army back in the Eighties we had the entirely reasonable expectation of either being summarily killed by regular Soviet troops or the KGB units following them or being shipped off to a slave labor camp in Siberia if any of us surrendered. One of my fellow soldiers, whose grandparents has escaped Russia a half-step ahead of the Red Army by hijacking a ship, actually asked me if he could assume my identity in the event that I was killed.

Islam In Action

An Australian newpaper reports:

THE husband of British-Iraqi aid worker Margaret Hassan said today she may have been killed by hostage takers, citing a video tape that had surfaced.

"I have been told that there is a video of Margaret which appears to show her murder. The video may be genuine but I do not know," Tahsin Hassan said in Baghdad.

Mrs Hassan was the head of CARE in Iraq, employed through CARE Australia.

The British embassy in Baghdad confirmed today that a video tape had surfaced appearing to show the killing of Mrs Hassan, and said it was probably genuine.

"We can confirm there is a tape that appears to show Margaret's murder," an embassy official said. "We believe it is probably genuine."

So what else is new?

I have to agree with Ann Coulter, converting the whole place to Christianity would be a definite step up.

Still At It

Anti-republican vandalism continues (HT: When Angry Democrats Attack):

A Republican Party committee office on the North Side has been vandalized three times since the Nov. 2 election, police said.

Three incendiary devices were thrown through the front window of the 43rd Ward Republicans headquarters, 2727 N. Halsted, on Monday night, Chicago police said. A wall was scorched, but only minimal damage was reported.

Suzanne Davis, committeewoman for the organization, said the fire was the latest in a series of incidents at the headquarters. Just after midnight Nov. 3, a brick was launched through the front window as people watched the presidential election results, and the next morning another window was discovered broken.

Other area Republican party offices have been the target of vandals, but it's rare for the harassment to continue after an election, officials said. Davis said the committee is considering installing an alarm system and bars for the windows.

Read This!

Mike at Cold Fury has just dropped a thermonuclear rant that utterly beats anything that I could write in my own foulest moods.

Thought for the Day

There's atheism and then there's Atheism.

Mere atheism is simply disbelief in the divine and as such is not a holy cause to which all other actions are subordinated, nor is it a affirmative virtue which cancels out all other personal faults. Whereas Atheism with the big "A" takes what is otherwise a simple philosophical position and blows it up into an illusion of positive virtue.

Atheism with a big "A" allows dull and ordinary people to feel and pose as if they were somehow superior to the mass of humanity. Atheism with a big "A" also provides reactionary garbage such as the Marxists a means to pose as some kind of progressive vanguard when in fact they are simply putting a philosophical polish on the neolithic practice of beating up and killing people and taking their stuff.

As a mere atheist all I have to say to the big "A" professional Athiests is, "go home, grow up, and get a life!"

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

Jacoby on Arafat

Jeff Jacoby, Boston Globe, November 11, 2004:

YASSER ARAFAT died at age 75, lying in bed surrounded by familiar faces. He left this world peacefully, unlike the thousands of victims he sent to early graves.

In a better world, the PLO chief would have met his end on a gallows, hanged for mass murder much as the Nazi chiefs were hanged at Nuremberg. In a better world, the French president would not have paid a visit to the bedside of such a monster. In a better world, George Bush would not have said, on hearing the first reports that Arafat had died, "God bless his soul."

I would have said. "may God have mercy on his soul," but I'm an atheist.

It would take an encyclopedia to catalog all of the evil Arafat committed. But that is no excuse for not trying to recall at least some of it.

Perhaps his signal contribution to the practice of political terror was the introduction of warfare against children. On one black date in May 1974, three PLO terrorists slipped from Lebanon into the northern Israeli town of Ma'alot. They murdered two parents and a child whom they found at home, then seized a local school, taking more than 100 boys and girls hostage and threatening to kill them unless a number of imprisoned terrorists were released. When Israeli troops attempted a rescue, the terrorists exploded hand grenades and opened fire on the students. By the time the horror ended, 25 people were dead; 21 of them were children.

Thirty years later, no one speaks of Ma'alot anymore. The dead children have been forgotten. Everyone knows Arafat's name, but who ever recalls the names of his victims?

So let us recall them: Ilana Turgeman. Rachel Aputa. Yocheved Mazoz. Sarah Ben-Shim'on. Yona Sabag. Yafa Cohen. Shoshana Cohen. Michal Sitrok. Malka Amrosy. Aviva Saada. Yocheved Diyi. Yaakov Levi. Yaakov Kabla. Rina Cohen. Ilana Ne'eman. Sarah Madar. Tamar Dahan. Sarah Soper. Lili Morad. David Madar. Yehudit Madar. The 21 dead children of Ma'alot -- 21 of the thousands of who died at Arafat's command.

Too bad there really isn't such a place as Hell.


Overheard (okay, read) in conversation at Little Green Footballs:

The Dutch Fight Back...Properly

The Government of the Netherlands is now actively cracking down on Islamic terror cells in their homeland (HT: LGF):

If I can believe RTL Nieuws, there's about forty different arrest teams currently active in the Laakkwartier precinct of The Hague in what seems to be a huge anti-terror action. Here's what I know so far:

• Airspace above The Hague has been sealed off until further notice.
• At 3 AM, arrest teams tried to enter a house on the Antheunisstraat in The Hague.
• Three officers were hurt, two of them allegedly quite severely to their stomach and legs, after explosions were heard. RTL Nieuws reports that a hand grenade was thrown at them. Two of the officers are still receiving hospital treatment.
• At 3.30 AM, shots were heard.
• No one is allowed into the area or even go back into their house. People can leave, but can't get in again. This led to strange situations in which a woman who had let out her dog couldn't return home. All those people are brought to a shelter.
• People who try to leave the area and have no identity papers, or turn out not to be registered on any address in the precinct, are brought down for further questioning.
• Around 8 AM, a man wearing only underwear who is reportedly of Asian descent, was apparently arrested. RTL Nieuws reports he's probably someone an illegal alien who had the bad luck of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Nothing is known about further arrests.
• However, a negotiator has been brought in. This suggests that the initial bust went wrong, and the people who this is all about, are still inside.
• The number of officers and soldiers down there must be huge. Some of the units are military anti-terrorist teams, which implies that they expect a huge potential for violence. The military units, the BBE (Bijzondere Bijstands Eenheid or Special Support Unit), were first founded in 1973 after the terrorist actions during the Olympic Games in 1972. They are not the kind of people you bring in for arresting a shoplifter.

Meanwhile, the police refuses to make any statements about the attack on the Pauluskerk (Church of Paul) in Boxmeer yesterday night, only hours after an Islamic school in Uden was completely destroyed.

Here's the main site.

The proper answer to vigilantism (and I admit to having cheered for it) is for government to properly carry out its mission of upholding and defending the rights of the citizens and legal residents of the nation.

Nothing less will do.

More Vandalism

Someone got in touch with their inner Lenin (HT: When Angry Democrats Attack)

Case in point: Once again, a local Republican couple find their SUV vandalized by Kerry brownshirts who, foolishly, left a “Kerry/Edwards” bumper sticker on a side window exposed when the Katherine Harris sign that was there was ripped off and left on the ground. Talk about leaving your DNA on the victim. It says something about a candidate when his supporters are little more than thugs, vandals and theives, doesn't it?

To govern is to restrain, those who cannot or will not restrain themselves have no place in a social institution whose function is to restain others.

So What Else Is New?

Satan's Sidekick on Little Green Footballs has something to say about Comrade Kerry:

A selectman in my town was Kerry's paperboy back in the 70s when Kerry lived in Lowell, MA. Out of his 40 customers only 2 never gave him a tip. Guess who one of them was?

No kidding.

Hardcore socialists, both advocates and beneficiaries, never tip. One of them actually laughed in my face when I told where he could write in a tip on a credit card slip. Another actually took his time to count out the exact amount of the transaction, and not one penny more, while I was standing outside the door in cold pouring rain.

A Question

Now that Bill and Hillary are officially residing in New York, would the convenient death of anyone who gets in their way still be called an arkancide?

The reason that I bring up the question is that the junior senator from Massachussetts is thinking of running for president again in 2008. I can't imagine that Hillary is going to like that.

Will it be a shotgun blast to the back of the head?

Evasive Maneuvers

Fighting Back Against The Jihad

Not all Dutchmen are Dhimmies:

Mon Nov 8, 2:24 AM ET

THE HAGUE (AFP) - An Islamic school in the Dutch city of Eindhoven was hit by an explosion but no one was injured, ANP news agency reported, as police said the blast could be linked to the murder of a controversial filmmaker.

Police said the explosion around 3:30 am (0230 GMT) caused serious damage to the school entrance and could be linked to the brutal murder of Thoe van Gogh by a suspected radical Islamist.

Windows at nearby buildings were blown out.

Eindhoven mayor Alexander Sakkers told public Dutch radio that no one was hurt in the explosion but that people in the neighborhood were in shock.

Muslim houses of worship and Islamic schools have been under surveillance since the murder Tuesday of van Gogh but police patrols would be stepped up, he added.

ANP reported Sunday that three Dutch mosques had been targeted in failed arson attempts at the weekend.

If I may make a suggestion toward a long term solution to the problem:

An oath of allegiance made in the name of a false god is a false oath.

BTW. There seems to be a small movement going where people write “Thou shalt not kill. RIP Theo van Gogh” on their front door or other public places. It started in The Netherlands and has now spread to here in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Comic Relief

This Monday's Freefall:

Learned to play bureaucracy in the army.

Some People!

Michael Jericho takes Jane Smiley to task for her deliberate distortions of our history. (HT: Techievampire)

Firstly, the men conducting the raid were Confederate Guerillas. That is to say in simple terms: they were the pro-slavery guys fighting on the side which opposed the Union... which at that time was governed and led by its Republican Commander-in-Chief... Abraham Lincoln. The men doing the slaughtering would have been staunch advocates of an "anybody but Lincoln" platform for the 1860 election, but fortunately, there was no George Soros around at the time to bankroll it.

Given a choice, the Confederate killers would have voted for the Democrats, who compounded their disgusting display of attempted appeasement by offering up failed Union ex-General George McClelland as their 1864 presidential candidate, who was widely known for his desire to reach a peaceful accomodation with the Confederacy. Had he won, there would now be a CSA (Confederate States of America) as well as a USA. Oh, and the slaves would not have been freed.

Has anyone noticed that the Republicans are clearly once again the party of liberation while the Democrats have resumed, through their advocacy and support for the various forms of Socialism, their old role as the party of subjugation?

And They Call Us Paranoid

The folks at Capitalism Magazine have a special message for anyone who believes that President Bush is going to establish a theocracy and send non believers to death camps:

Getting In Touch With Their Inner Che.

Vandals Hit Republican Headquarters in North Carolina (tip: Drudge):

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Vandals spray painted vulgar messages on the walls of the North Carolina Republican Party headquarters and left a burned effigy depicting President Bush and Sen. John Kerry, police said.

Authorities detained several suspects early Saturday, hours after the attacks took place Friday night, but had not filed any charges, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.

A police officer reported Friday that about 100 people wearing masks and gloves were walking down a street near the headquarters, authorities said.

Here's a clue for all you self-styled "progressives."


In spite of the bribes offered, the lies told, the assaults on persons and property, and the other nonsense that your side pulled, you lost the presidential election.

Get over it.

We refuse to be a living prop in your ideological fantasies. We refuse to bind ourselves with the chains that you offer us. And we refuse to embark on the path that ultimately leads to the anonymous ditch outside of town.

This isn't Russia in 1917. We know about the ultimate results of your ideological fantasy and will not go down that path without a fight.

So go home, grow up, and get a life.

And I have special message for all those schissekopfe who feel that its cool to wear a Che Guevara shirt in public: Che was the inhuman piece of excrement that Comrade Castro put in charge of "liquidating enemies of the people", which in reality meant shooting anyone with property to steal or who otherwise had a mind or conscience of their own.

In short, Che Guevara was a bloody communist mass murderer. Wearing a Che shirt in a free nation is as disgusting as wearing a Heinrich Himmler shirt in Tel Aviv.

And wearing a Che shirt says that you are no better than a bloody murderer.

The only reason that you aren't beaten to a bloody pulp and hanged from a convenient tree or lamp post is that we are better than you and the murderer that you call a hero.

Sacred Cow Burger...Yum!

I'm going to relax for a while before I start ranting again.

And before I go I have a special message for all those liberals who are whining about the rise of a Republican theocracy: I'm an atheist and I voted for Bush.

Canada 2.0

From Not A Dollar Short:

And I used to think of my home state of Minnesota as Baja Canada.

First time since 1988!

President Bush achieved a majority in the overall presidential election!
That is something Bill Clinton never did!

He received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history!

Thought for the Day

I have a message for the ubermenschen wanna-be's of the Left:

In the immortal words of Ayn Rand: You need us, we do not need you.

Or to put it in a more common vernacular: Fuck off and die.

President Bush Reelected

Apparently outside the "margin of lawyer" too. Not that this will stop them from trying.

Cox and Forkum's daily mocking of the Junior Comrade from Massachussetts:

Some of the morons moonbats over at the Despocratic Sewer Democratic Underground are muttering to each other about going to Ohio with baseball bats and rioting in order to reverse the outcome.

Um, didn't that whiny moonbat Neil Young write a whiny song about a marxist riot being lethally interrupted by the Ohio National Guard back in 1971?

Election Fraud Update

Election Fraud Incident Reports from the Minnesota-GOP site:

Voter found someone else voted for him.

Kerristas doing mass vouching in Duluth.

MoveOn violation.

Just In Case

In the event the John F**king Kerry seizes power through fraud, I am opening the betting pool on a military coup d'etat.

My ten dollars is going to 0800 (that's 8 AM to you civilians) on January 21st, 2005.

This Is Islam In Action

Critic of Islam assassinated:

AMSTERDAM (AFP) - The Dutch film maker Theo van Gogh, who made films that sparked political controversy in the Netherlands including a recent short film on Islam, was murdered in Amsterdam, a spokesman for his film production company told Dutch public Radio 1.

Van Gogh, 47, had just finished a movie about the assassination in May 2002 of the populist right-wing politician Pim Fortuyn.

Pim Fortuyn was a homosexual socialist critic of Islam who stood up for the native Dutch culture. The Established Liberal Media never bothers to mention those rather inconvenient details.

After his film on Islam and the submission of women together with controversial liberal politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Van Gogh received police protection much against his will.

He was shot while cycling in Amsterdam, according to eyewitnesses. The police have captured the assailant but have no idea yet why Van Gogh was killed.

This report comes from a French press agency, they're bound to shave the truth a bit in favor of the Islamists.

It's reported elsewhere that the assailant appeared to be of Somali origin.

As I said before, we can't dehumanize the enemies of Liberty, only they can and they have in practice dehumanized themselves.

Here's some suggested reading:

Apostates of Islam

What is Islam?

Truth Alone Triumphs

Update at 0525 CST:

Natchwacht at Little Green Footballs posted:

According to a female English speaking eyewitness the killer was an arabic looking man clad in long islamic dress (jilaba?) with a big black beard.

According to a Dutch male eyewitness two knifes were used, a large one and a small one. The killer stooped over his victim for several minutes (trying to behead his victim as well?) and the letter stuck to his chest was said to contain islamic text.

Update at 0555 CST:

BBC website story:

Police arrested a man in a nearby park after an exchange of gunfire.

Van Gogh, 47, had received death threats after his film Submission, on violence against women in Islamic societies, was shown on Dutch TV.

The film was made with liberal Dutch politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali refugee who fled an arranged marriage.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been under police protection since the film was aired. She has also received death threats and has renounced the Islamic faith.

Criticizing and leaving Islam are acts punishable by death according to the false prophet Mohammed.

Good thing I've always kept an unlisted phone number.

Update at 0830 CST:

Just got back from voting for President Bush.

Robert Spencer has posted the story on his Dhimmi Watch site.

There are comments and witness accounts in the comments section.

Like this from Martin in Amsterdam:

The assasination happened around the corner from where I live in Amsterdam Oost. I arrived on the scene five minutes after they killed Theo, as I was on my way to buy some bread with my two year old. I saw his body, with the knives still in it, covered with white linnen. Like this:

I informed Jihadwatch within the hour.

I knew Theo very well. He was the nicest guy. I worked with him at a radiostation, ten years ago. He lived around the corner, and never wanted to be surrounded by body guards, like Hirsi Ali and Wilders.
The police took his son out of the class room this morning to tell his father is dead. God bless Lieuwe.

Politicians now talk about societal problems, and that society is getting more violent. Off course, they don't talk about a war that is going on for 1400 years.

The guy who did it was wearing a djallaba, and has a long beard. After he shot Theo seven times, Theo was stabbed. On the knive a letter, or holy scriptures.

Take the time to read the whole thing.

Cheating In Minnesota Update

Election Incident Report from the Minnesota GOP:

10/25/2004 - Mass Vouching

Numerous DFL and liberal organization documents showing disregard for the laws involving same day registration and vouching for residency. As you well know, citizens can have their residency in a precinct vouched for by a registered voter in that precinct but only if the individual vouching has personal knowledge of the voters residency. These groups, as well as the DFL, appear to be setting up programs for vouching but never making it clear to the activists or the voters that vouching requires personal knowledge. For example:

* According to an ACT e-mail, ACT is trying to recruit "thousands" of volunteers with name badges for Election Day with ward and precinct on them to make it easier to find a volunteer to vouch for a voter at the polls. With no mention of the essential requirement of personal knowledge of the voucher, this suggests a systematic program to match vouchers to voters contrary to the clear demands of the law.

* The attached get-out-the-vote script from the DFL has a volunteer introduce themselves and then if the person is not registered, arranges to have someone from the neighborhood pick them up and vouch. There is no mention that this someone must be a registered voter from that precinct and have personal knowledge of residency. Both the voter and the voucher doing this would be breaking the law.

* The attached Voters Bill of Rights from the AFL-CIO tells voters  contrary to the law  that, Anyone who is registered to vote in your precinct can vouch for where you live.

Decision 2004

From Cox and Forkum:

This election may very well decide the future of Humanity.

A vote for President Bush means the continuation of the War on Terror. (Which really should be the War on Totalitarianism.) And the possibility that Mankind will move off of the Earth and into the Universe in general.

A vote for the Archtraitor Kerry is a vote for socialism, dhimmitude, and ultimately the exinction of Mankind. (Not that it would bother the tree-hugging filth infesting our college campuses and Established Media in any way.)

Victory or Exinction.

Your choice.
