I don't want to hear another damned word from ANYONE about the wonders of British society,

and I sure-hell don't want to hear how wonderful their 'law enforcement' personnel are.
But the small amount of traffic that passes through the Dorset village came to a dramatic standstill - after armed police opened fire on a van in broad daylight.

After secretly pursuing the vehicle, they waited until it came to halt, and then burst out into the road firing rounds into the tyres.

They then smashed a window and dragged the driver out in shocking scenes that followed an investigation into alleged plans to blow up a nearby mosque.
Ah, a planned terrorist attack stopped, right?
Yesterday, as it emerged that none of the men had been charged with any crimes, police insisted the tyre shooting had been safe.
Oh yeah, shooting out tires on a crowded street, whatever could go wrong? Especially since(I guess we know who that moron officer in Maryland has been taking lessons from)
Officers had followed England Defence League member John Broomfield, 27, home from work and waited until he was stuck in traffic in the tourist spot before they pounced.
The level of idiocy involved in this is staggering. HE'S FRIGGIN' STOPPED IN TRAFFIC and they shoot out the tires! And then smash the window and drag him through it?

Wonder if they're going to replace the tires and window they destroyed?

Note the last line of this report:
'At this stage there is no indication whatsoever that any of the mosques in Dorset are under threat of attack.'
More wonderful English policing here.

I just had Hannity on, Updated

having been too lazy to go turn the radio off, and just listened to Weiner and King talking about this demonstration of hysteria.

I've heard arguments between 5-year-olds that were easier to listen to than trying to get Weiner to answer a question. Short version: the bill is primarily health-care stuff for 1st responders with problems caused by/related to 9/11 service. The Democrats decided they wouldn't pass the bill unless a bunch of Republicans voted for it. Republicans refused to play:
He points out that no such fund has been created for Katrina victims, members of the military injured or for the families of those killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, victims of the first World Trade Center bombing, victims of the USS Cole terrorist attack, or victims of the Oklahoma City Bombing. Goodlatte and many Republicans opposed the bill on the principle that the creation of special compensation funds is not the way to help the victims
Weiner had a meltdown accusing them of everything but running puppies through blenders.

Hannity kept trying to get an answer to "If this is so important, just pass it; Democrats have enough votes to do so, so why don't you?" Translation of piles of bullshit: "We want Republicans to vote yes to give us cover." And it took him a lot of yelling and interrupting and talking over others to get that out.

As Insty puts it, the country is in the best of hands...
Update: from what I'm hearing the Democrats had some crap to help illegal aliens or immigration added onto this bill; not only did they not want to pass it by Democrats Only voting for it, some Democrats had said "I'm not voting for this bill with that crap attached to it."

Julian Assange and Bradley Manning: two people who may already

have blood on their hands, the miserable little - there's just not a really good word for these things, is there?
The Taliban has issued a warning to Afghans whose names might appear on the leaked Afghanistan war logs as informers for the Nato-led coalition.

In an interview with Channel 4 News, Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, said they were studying and investigating the report, adding “If they are US spies, then we know how to punish them.”

The warning came as the US military’s top officer, Admiral Mike Mullen said that Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, may already have blood on his hands following the leak of 92,000 classified documents relating to the war in Afghanistan by his website.

“Mr Assange can say whatever he likes about the greater good he thinks he and his source are doing, but the truth is they might already have on their hands the blood of some young soldier or that of an Afghan family,” he said
Manning, you're a traitor. Assange, you're a cowardly little attention-seeker who doesn't care what harm he does, long as he gets attention. Well, you're getting it, you little shit.

And one more: Democrat lies and desperation

“We have no intention of allowing the Republican tax increase — that their policies would lead to — to go into effect for working Americans. Period,” he said. “We’re going to act and make sure that the Republican phase out and increase in taxes does not end as they provided for in the laws they passed.”

Catch that, puddin' slurping rethuglikkkan scum? Your evil plan to increase taxes will not succeed as long as Steny 'Fiscal Hawk' Hoyer is standing in your way.
Yes, they really think you are this stupid.
Yes, the Democrats letting the Bush tax cuts expire is a 'Republican Tax Increase'. Yeah. Sure.

From Ace's comments:
53 I think NOW would be a good time to remind people that the ONLY reason those tax cuts are sunsetting is because Democrats filibustered making them permanent in the first place.

Republicans had to pass the tax cuts through reconciliation as a budget measure which means that they had to sunset per the rules of reconciliation because Democrats refused to even make them IN THE FIRST PLACE.

So yeah, let's TALK about the sunsetting of those tax cuts. I, for one, WELCOME, the discussion

Before my hand gives out, a reminder of just what bastards the Daleys were/are

But Mayor Daley went back to Chicago and pushed through an ordinance individually registering every gun in Cook Country. That ordinance was delayed one day because the U.S. Supreme Court had handed down U.S. vs. Haynes, which held that it was a "justifiable defense" for a criminal, prohibited from possessing a gun, to refuse to register it due to fear of self-incrimination. The Chicago city council found an innovative way to enact their registration ordinance while evading that law: Persons with criminal or mental records which prevented them from legally owning a gun were exempt from registration.

Never mind that criminals were the alleged target of that law, and that they were exempted, the city's new registration law applied only to the law-abiding citizen with a spotless record. And it's still the same way.

Ever wear a sling in hot weather?

It sucks. But if I don't, I tend to use the hand/arm when I shouldn't, so... Look for intermittent/no posting over the next week or so, between the difficulty and general "Crap, I've got a lot to take care of!"

So, to take care of today, some of the current BS on Rep. Rangel(Corrupticrat Deluxe-NY) here, here and here. Personal observations:
I'm sick of hearing people in both parties talk about what a 'sad day' this is because "Ol' Charlie is such a pleasant guy", etc. Bullshit. He's a corrupt politician who's stayed in office this long in part because of idiots making excuses for him.
Second, ever notice this crap: “Sixty years ago I survived a Chinese attack in North Korea and as a result I haven’t had a bad day since,” Rangel told reporters earlier Thursday. Every time that bastard is called on something, sooner or later- usually VERY soon- he brings up "I served in the Army in Korea!", apparently considering that a shield against having to face people calling him on his corruption. Hey, Rangel, I don't give John McCain a break because of his service; so why the hell would I give a slug like you one?

Second, the US Citizenship and Immigration Service is playing games to try to work amnesty for illegals without going through Congress(God forbid the bastards in the House and Senate should actually have to make a vote they'd have to answer for). This kind of garbage is why I've wondered if there are enough lampposts to take care of the politicians AND the bureaucrats doing crap like this.
Basically they claim that the Draft memo is just a way to “internally” discuss Ideas and that they have no intention of doing Deferred Action on the entire Illegal population.

The Key Word there is …..”Entire”

Why I'm very glad the son isn't in Afghanistan right now:
Former presidential adviser Karl Rove has also noticed the fecklessness of Obama’s Afghan war policies. Rove made a particularly pointed comment in a recent Wall Street Journal article about the Afghan war press conference held between Britain’s new Prime Minister David Cameron and the president. Rove noted that, “neither leader uttered the word ‘victory’ or ‘win’ or any other similar phrase.”

As Rove observed, neither the American nor the British people have the slightest idea what the objective is with Obama’s Afghan war policy. Is it to defeat al Qaeda? Is it to defeat the Taliban? Is there any intentions to defeat anything, win the war, or make Afghanistan safe for average Afghanis? What are Obama’s goals in Afghanistan?

I think his goal is "Pretend I actually care long enough so it doesn't look like I wanted to cut and run the whole time."

What kind of idiot thinks it's a good idea to put out idiocy like this?
"Where is Grimm's money coming from," said Jennifer Nelson, McMahon's campaign spokesman. "There is a lot of Jewish money, a lot of money from people in Florida and Manhattan, retirees."
I mean, that's an amazing level of "FAIL!!!" right there. AND stupid. And in New York? Jeez.

Oh, bleep.
The Coast Guard has gathered evidence it failed to follow its own firefighting policy during the Deepwater Horizon disaster and is investigating whether the chaotic spraying of tons of salt water by private boats contributed to sinking the ill-fated oil rig, according to interviews and documents.

Coast Guard officials told the Center for Public Integrity that the service does not have the expertise to fight an oil rig fire and that its response to the April 20 explosion may have broken the service’s own rules by failing to ensure a firefighting expert supervised the half-dozen private boats that answered the Deepwater Horizon’s distress call to fight the blaze.

An official maritime investigation led by Coast Guard Capt. Hung M. Nguyen in New Orleans is examining whether the salt water that was sprayed across the burning platform overran the ballast system that kept the rig upright, changing its weight distribution, and causing it to list
Obama has repeatedly blamed BP for the spill, telling the nation in a televised Oval Office address on June 15: “We will make BP pay for the damage their company has caused.” A day later he pressured BP to set aside $20 billion to pay economic damage to the region.

But in the critical first days after the explosion, the new report reveals the U.S. Coast Guard disregarded its own firefighting policy and might have caused the oil rig to sink -- prompting the leak that resulted in the largest oil spill in U.S. history.

Evidence unearthed by reporters Aaron Mehta and John Solomon shows the cash-strapped Coast Guard broke its own rules and didn't have a firefighting expert on the scene to oversee the private boats battling the blaze. There's an ongoing investigation to determine if the salt water sprayed on the burning oil rig caused it to sink

And on that note, I'm done.

In a very short gunny post,

the other day had a chance to fire one of these: the Bernardelli BabyYeah, it's really that small: not quite 4.2" long, .6" thick and 2.7" tall, tiny little thing. And empty weighs a grand total of just under 9 ounces; very much a pocket pistol.

According to what I could find, they began making these in 1949, on a quick search couldn't find an end date(added: reference just ran across was 1968, after that import banned due to their size). They were chambered in either .22 Short or .22 Long; the one I fired was a Long. The safety is on the left at the front of the grip: up for not reallySafe, down for Fire.

This is one of the smallest, lightest pistols I've ever handled, especially for all steel construction. Only my middle finger wrapped around the grip, but recoil wasn't bad at all. Sights are in a groove machined into the top of the slide: a nice square little post in front and a notch in back. If I have a chance to shoot it again I'll try some more precise aiming, the other day it was a chance to put a few rounds through and that was it. The trigger broke a lot more cleanly than I expected, too.

All in all, a very interesting little piece. I'll close with this I found at Unblinking Eye:
I consider these guns curiosities. They are fun to plink with, but can hardly be considered serious self-defense weapons, although if you could throw one hard enough and with sufficient accuracy it would have much the same effect as a rock. Since the safety only locks the connector, I fear the striker could be released if the gun were dropped, so I would not carry one with a round in the chamber.
Nowadays when you can get a .32 in a slightly larger package, this isn't something I'd want to rely on, true enough; it's way down in the 'Any gun is better than no gun(but some are just barely)' rankings.

But it's so damn cute, I want one.

I wasn't in the best of moods to start with, so moving on to telling Spain

to kiss our collective ass is a small step.
On the morning of July 29, Spain's National Court announced that it has re-issued an international arrest warrant against three U.S. soldiers it implicates in an attack on Baghdad's Hotel Palestine, where Rodriguez and Couso, along with dozens of other journalists, were based during the Iraq war.

On April 8, 2003, one day before U.S. troops officially captured Baghdad, a U.S. tank fired a single incendiary shell on the hotel, killing Couso, a cameraman for Spain's Telecinco television station, and Reuters journalist Taras Protsyuk.
As I recall, one of the factors in the investigation was the guy pointing a camera at the troops; which in the fog of battle looked a lot like a rocket launcher. But who cares about inconvenient facts when socialist/progressive assholes have a chance to screw with Americans?
What does Spain have to do with the 2003 incident? Absolutely nothing, but that country has assumed authority to pursue politically-motivated persecutions of anyone, anywhere in the world.
And I(unsurprisingly) have assumed authority to tell the Spanish National Court to go to hell.

Mary Frances Berry is a name you may recall

You may recall that while a former chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights last reappointed by President Bill Clinton she was such a RWPP nutbag she was finally gotten rid of. Where is she now? the Geraldine R. Segal Professor of American Social Thought and History at the University of Pennsylvania(parents who have kids there ought to find out what crap they're being taught)
And what is she saying now?
Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.
Yeah, God forbid you actually talk about problems when you can slander people to try to shut them up, right? Another good progressive slimeball in high position in education.
Project 21 member Bob Parks added: “What’s most disturbing about this very public quote? Not only is Mary Frances Berry making this comment without fear of admonishment, and that progressives have apparently embraced and are employing these very shameful, race-baiting tactics — but Berry is likely teaching this “social thought” hate to children.”

On one of the idiot 'explanations' of the latest pretty Russian spy:

If someone did know a little bit about this kind of technology, and had a grasp of history, they would come to the much more reasonable conclusion that the Russians would be interested in obtaining the latest U.S. technology so that they could reverse engineer it and then build advanced night vision scopes for export sales and/or use this tech to equip their own soldiers.

For the record, Russian soldiers aren't assassins either, and know hell of a lot more about night vision gear than some self-aggrandizing media whore retired New York cop.

Can I suggest that the proper response

is to tell the Equalities Minister to piss off?

A different view of the WikiLeaks bastards

I may be wrong, but IMO the WikiLeaks constitute an attempt by administration-friendly insiders to make it easier for the president to break his campaign promises while blaming his predecessors for it. The idea is to lift a page from history -- The Pentagon Papers -- and lay the blame for Afghanistan at Bush. (And, of course, on an inherently evil militaristic America.) And as president, he's now looking at a war he says he wanted to finish, but no longer does.

But there's a new twist in the historical blame game. Obama does not want to be Nixon. After all, Nixon did everything he could to fight the release of the Pentagon Papers, because even though they largely implicated LBJ, Nixon did not seek a dishonorable exit from Vietnam. He genuinely wanted to prevent a Communist victory in South Vietnam, and had he remained in office, it is very doubtful that the North Vietnamese (who had been basically bombed into submission and knew Nixon would be right back with the B52s) would have crossed him. Obama not only cannot strike such a deal, he couldn't care less about the Afghan people. I suspect he just wants to pull out and blame Bush.

And a very direct view of the consequences of letting the Taliban take over again.
By RICHARD STENGEL, MANAGING EDITOR — Our cover image this week is powerful, shocking and disturbing. It is a portrait of Aisha, a shy 18-year-old Afghan woman who was sentenced by a Taliban commander to have her nose and ears cut off for fleeing her abusive in-laws. Aisha posed for the picture and says she wants the world to see the effect a Taliban resurgence would have on the women of Afghanistan, many of whom have flourished in the past few years. Her picture is accompanied by a powerful story by our own Aryn Baker on how Afghan women have embraced the freedoms that have come from the defeat of the Taliban — and how they fear a Taliban revival.

Green beans, great suffering Shiva...

I'd imagine Breitbart is drooling at the thought (updated)

of putting Sherrod on the stand and under oath. And oh, the discovery process!

And she's still lying about Fox News.

And, under the heading of Awesomeness, I'd forgotten about this clip:

The problem isn't that we can't whip the problem: the problem is RWPP bastards like Jackson and Sharpton and Shabazz and now Sherrod gain too much by making things worse and dragging things out.

But, if having to defend a suit of dubious merit allows Breitbart to put Sherrod's life on trial, to conduct an inquiry into the NAACP and Sherrod's connections in the movement, and to take the depositions of administration officials, that might just be a price Breitbart is happy to pay.

Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, is a scum-sucking

little piece of shit. At best.
Julian Assange, no-balls little son of a distempered whorethe founder of the whistleblowing website, told The Times he would "deeply regret" any harm caused by the disclosures. But in an extensive interview yesterday he defended his actions.
Pay attention to the last half of this:
He claimed many informers in Afghanistan were "acting in a criminal way" by sharing false information with NATO authorities and said the White House knew informants' names could be exposed but did nothing to help WikiLeaks vet the data.
Really. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. "The White House wouldn't help us vet the secret documents we were about to dump, so it's not our fault if some of the people we out are killed in unpleasant ways."

Vile little excuse for a man, isn't he?

Not much in the way of gunny stuff lately;

the messed-up arm makes loading magazines, holding revolvers for loading or whatever not much fun, though there has been dry-fire practice. It is improving(the arm, not the practice), so soon. In the meantime,
Seems the most competent administration ever, let BP set up the compensation fund in a way that they can write about half of it off.

If you've got kids in school, you'd better find out what the teachers are up to besides what they're supposed to be doing; they may be involved in this crap:
Well for most teachers I believe that is the case, but for those in the NEA who are involved in “Grass Roots” organizing, they may have been influenced by a little more than reading, writing and arithmetic.

According to the NEA website, the Radical Communist Saul Alinsky’s Book, “Rules for Radicals” is recommended reading to all of their members :
” of our Association who are involved in grassroots organizing, especially Association Representatives (ARs) — also known as building reps or shop stewards — and leaders at local affiliates”
Here is a screen shot from the NEA website (Click to Enlarge):
Nice to know what the teachers unions are up to, isn't it?

Obama is headlining four Democratic fundraisers in three days and hosting another four events next week. For now he's playing it safe, holding the eight events in noncompetitive states or in a competitive place where he's sure to be embraced: his home state of Illinois.

Wednesday's fundraisers in New York are closed to the media, as was a similar event Tuesday night in Washington.
Wonder if any of our 'The People's Right To Know' major media weenies will be bothered by this? Or say anything if they are?

And finally, another piece of crap from The Obamas and the National Socialist Democrats:
It seems like a sweet sentiment – an e-mail message from a loving wife expressing a charming and fun way to wish her husband a happy 49th birthday by having thousands of people sign an electronic birthday card.
But in Washington, D.C., nothing is that simple. The wife, in this case, is first lady Michelle Obama, and the message is being sent out by the Democratic Party to people on its list nationwide.
Clicking on the link—“Will you wish Barack a happy birthday with me?” – sends you to “,” the Organizing for America Web site, which describes itself as “a project of the Democratic National Committee.”…
...But typing in your name, address and E-mail, and hitting “Sign the Card” takes you directly to another page—a donation page, which states:

“Thank you for standing alongside us, with the President. Now can you make a donation to help us take on the year ahead?”—and a disclaimer that funds would not go to political candidates. .

When I don't get enough sleep I have even less patience

with corrupt, lying politicians like Schumer; let's give him a lead place at the necktie party:
At a Rose Garden press conference on Monday, President Obama decried the influence of “shadow groups” on elections and urged the Senate to pass the “reform” sponsored by N.Y. Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer. But the loophole-ridden package exempts large nonprofits with 500,000 or more members. Behemoth labor unions get preferential treatment. Bradley Smith, former Federal Elections Commission chairman, noted that the law places radical speech-squelching restrictions on companies’ ability to run independent political ads: “(I)f you’re a company with a government contract of over $10 million (like more than half of the top 50 U.S. companies) or if you’re a company with more than 20 percent foreign shareholders, you can’t even mention a candidate in an ad for up to a full year before the election. … There are no similar prohibitions for unions representing government contractors or unions with foreign membership.”
Sorry, corrupt, oathbreaking little bastards.

Still can't type much, so links and cut & paste is still the order of the day

How to write about Africa. I wish I could remember whose link sent me to this.
Always use the word 'Africa' or 'Darkness' or 'Safari' in your title. Subtitles may include the words 'Zanzibar', 'Masai', 'Zulu', 'Zambezi', 'Congo', 'Nile', 'Big', 'Sky', 'Shadow', 'Drum', 'Sun' or 'Bygone'. Also useful are words such as 'Guerrillas', 'Timeless', 'Primordial' and 'Tribal'. Note that 'People' means Africans who are not black, while 'The People' means black Africans.

Never have a picture of a well-adjusted African on the cover of your book, or in it, unless that African has won the Nobel Prize. An AK-47, prominent ribs, naked breasts: use these. If you must include an African, make sure you get one in Masai or Zulu or Dogon dress

Well, this is interesting.

More Transparency! from Friend of Angelo Dodd, Sleeps With Fannie Frank and Pure as Sludge Obama.

More from our Most Bigoted Attorney General and his Corrupted DOJ:
The MOVE Act, enacted last October, ensures that servicemen and women serving overseas have ample time to get in their absentee ballots. The result of the DOJ’s alleged inaction in enforcing the act, say Eric Eversole and J. Christian Adams — both former litigation attorneys for the DOJ’s Voting Section — could be that thousands of soldiers’ ballots will arrive too late to be counted.

“It is an absolute shame that the section appears to be spending more time finding ways to avoid the MOVE Act, rather than finding ways to ensure that military voters will have their votes counted,” said Eversole, director of the Military Voter Protection Project, a new organization devoted to ensuring military voting rights. “The Voting Section seems to have forgotten that it has an obligation to enforce federal law, not to find and raise arguments for states to avoid these laws.”

Jeez, Rangel can't be honorable in ANYTHING, can he?
Rep. Charles Rangel’s chances of cutting an ethics deal are in jeopardy over allegations that he met privately with Ethics Committee Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) Monday night without any Republican members of the bipartisan panel present.

Lofgren says she hasn’t spoken to Rangel since last Thursday, and sources close to Rangel deny that there was an attempt to cut a backroom deal with Lofgren. But Rangel’s attorneys met with Democratic ethics committee staff Monday, according to people close to the investigation.

It’s unclear whether Lofgren and Rangel themselves attended this meeting, but even if Democratic aides and lawyers met without their GOP counterparts present, that could cause problems with Republicans…

At least one Republican on the committee would have to agree to a deal — an outcome that would be next to impossible if Republican lawmakers believe they were cut out of any part of the “bipartisan” ethics process
And Lofgren, you're another corrupt politician who ought to be thrown out of that taxpayer-supplied office.

Another example of "You actually expected US to obey the law?"

And I'll close with more slime dripping from Rangel. With Obama helping spread it.
What is truly disturbing is if you are not eligible for Military Service you will be Drafted into a Civilian Corps for a minimum of 2 years. Your”Job” in this Civil Corp will then be defined by President Obama. The bill even allows the President to decide who will be selected and how it will be done.

On the subject of racist idiocy,

PALM BAY, Fla. — Authorities in coastal Florida say a black teenager is accused of attacking a white man for listening to rap music and could be charged with a hate crime.

Police took the 14-year-old Palm Bay boy into custody late Monday and charged him with battery.
Martinez says the teen told the 22-year-old victim to stop listening to rap music because "white people shouldn't listen to rap music." The teen then struck him in the face

Thanks to Pistolero for the link

(I will ignore that if the kid had said "That crap will rot your brain!" and whacked him, it might've been classed as a clumsy attempt to help)

To that Anonymous jackass whining about how racist

we are, and how glad he/she is not to be one of us nasty rednecks:
Screw you.

I'll point to two pieces of idiocy in this article

First is the usual 'neo-Nazi groups are right-wing extremists'; ignore the 'National SOCIALIST' stuff, they've GOT to be right wing types, correct?

The stone-throwing incident in Hanover, however, has finally forced the authorities to take a closer look at a group of offenders that, though largely overlooked until now, is no less motivated by anti-Zionist sentiments: adolescents and young adults from an immigrant community who are influenced by Islamist ideas and are prepared to commit acts of violence.

An informal and accidental alliance has been developing for some time between neo-Nazis and some members of a group they would normally despise: Muslim immigrants. The two groups seem to share vaguely similar anti-Semitic ideologies.
The only reason they've been 'largely overlooked' is stupidity. And vaguely similar anti-Semitic ideologies? How the HELL can supposedly intelligent people write something like that?

The level of disgust I feel for these 'law enforcement' personnel

cannot be put into words.
The District police department policy on forcible entry caused a "deadly delay" as officers waited for a supervisor outside an apartment while a mother and her two young sons were being stabbed to death inside, according to a lawsuit filed by the woman's family.
The District legal team has not contested the facts in the case, many of which were pulled from official police documents. But the city has sought to have it thrown out of court on legal grounds.

"In general, officers should seek the approval of an official prior to making any forcible entry," police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump told The Washington Examiner
And what was happening while they sought approval?
"The caller, who was obviously a child, could be heard screaming for several seconds directly into the phone before becoming silent," the lawsuit states. "After which, a man's voice could be heard saying, 'I told y'all to quit [expletive] with me.' " The 911 operator tried to get someone to speak into the phone and can be repeatedly heard saying "Hello," but no one answered, documents said.

When police arrived at the apartment they could hear a voice saying "No, stop," from just beyond the door, police records say. An officer spoke to the 911 dispatcher, who advised that the caller was "a child screaming on the phone, possibly playing."

The first to arrive was a sergeant, who waited 45 minutes for a captain to arrive and approve the forced entry, police records show. It took another five minutes for the fire department to arrive and a few more minutes for firefighters to bust down the apartment's barricaded steel door.

Inside, they found the family already murdered. Mays was in the bathroom with minor self-inflicted wounds
Just go read it. I can't type much, and I don't need to be beating on keys the way I will if I continue.

Just how full of crap is Holder's DOJ on the NBPP case?

It's piled this friggin' high, is how full.

"Who would be a Nazi?"

Interesting reading.

Found at Chicago Boyz

Across the pond, in the holy name of Stopping Globular Warmering,

Householders face a £300-a-year rise in their gas and electricity bills and significant cuts in how much energy they use if Britain is to “keep the lights on” and meet its climate change targets, the Government has said.
However, Mr Huhne’s department admitted that such policies could increase the price of electricity by up to a third and gas by up to a fifth. This would make the average family’s annual energy bill of £1,100, £300 more expensive.
To offset this, the Energy Secretary said people would have to make “ambitious” cuts in their own consumption and improve the energy efficiency of their homes, including installing energy generators such as solar panels.

Effectively it means people will have to pay more for their energy, but use less of it
As the idiots still believing the CRU work to shuffle Britain down the road into 2nd-world status.

According to the kitchen scale, the Kimber Compact Aluminum

with a loaded 7-round mag and one in the chamber weighs right at two pounds.

The kind of people Holder's DOJ is protecting

and RWPP dirtbags like Sharpton like to hang around with.
Perhaps Mr. Shabazz is unfamiliar with his own attempts to ‘stir up racial fears,' but in case he has forgotten we'd like to direct you to a video from C-Span (h/t John Simpson) in which he calls out to the crowd in Washington, D.C., to ‘unite against a common enemy' and to defend themselves against the police by: ‘when we see caskets rolling and funerals in the black community ... we will see caskets and funerals in the community of our enemy.'

The video is from an event held in the summer of 2000 called the ‘Redeem the Dream' rally. It was hosted by the Reverend Al Sharpton and includes participation by the NAACP, Rep. John Conyers, New York gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo, and former President of the NAACP and former Democratic Congressman, Kweisi Mfume. The C-Span library contains an entire 4 hour and 36 minute version of the video, so as not to confuse the media of the messages intent. A transcript follows below.
"Who is it that caught and killed Nat Turner?"

Audience: "The Jews!"

"Who is it that controls the Federal Reserve?"

Audience: "The Jews!"

"Who is it that has our entertainers . . . and our athletes in a vise grip?"

Audience: "The Jews!"

"We want to bring on a man who makes the Jews pee in their pants at night . . . my big brother, Dr. Khallid Muhammad!"

May have found out why the Johnny Roy campaign

didn't answer my e-mails: got my current Oklahoma Rifle Association mag the other day, with a page of ratings on candidates; he got a 'B', which they rate as 'generally pro-gun'.

Not promising.

The arm still doesn't work right

but things have eased off a bit; the meds appear to be helping. I'm still limited on typing, so:
Oliver Stone attempts to shake off some of the pile of half-rotted marfi that landed on him for his idiot statements; I don't think it'll work. "I didn't say what I said" doesn't work anymore with anyone but his progressive friends.

The New York Effin' Times plays the same game: "The tea party didn' t actually say those things, but we'll keep hinting they're responsible."

Stone and the Journalist weenies. I like this part:
...They’re just all too dumb to realize that, when you get as far Left as Stone, the antisemitism stops being coy little references to capitalism, Israeli imperialism and Palestinian victimhood. Instead, it becomes the active antisemitism that travels from Chavez’s attacks on Jewish businesses, to Stalin’s periodic kangaroo court purges and suppression of religion, to Hitler’s final solution. (And I mention those three Leftist antisemites here because Stone specifically speaks of them as either admirable or misunderstood, or both.)”

Awww, it's 'traumatic' to be a corrupt politician and actually be investigated...

Obama/Holder buttkissers are working to slime Adams:
Then Dionne writes this passage that amounts to one big lie:

Now, Adams is accusing the Obama Justice Department of being “motivated by a lawless hostility toward equal enforcement of the law.” This is racially inflammatory, politically motivated nonsense — and it’s nonsense even if Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh talk about it 1,000 times a day. When an outlandish charge for which there is no evidence is treated as an on-the-one-hand-on-the-other-hand issue, the liars win.

Nonsense? No evidence? There is Adams’ sworn testimony naming names and at times dates; unless he perjured himself, that is evidence. There are the lengthy reports of the going-away speech by Adams’ colleague Chris Coates, a longtime civil rights activist who once was a lead lawyer for the ACLU. (The only reason Coates’ own testimony is not sworn is because DoJ refused to let him testify…

And, just to keep following this crap,
Adams’ latest exposé on the DOJ’s failure to protect military voting rights is here.

Ma'am Boxer really is a piece of work, isn't she?

The .gov wants to protect people from paying too much tuition. No, not at Colleges, you moron, they don't mind it there...

And I have to note, mowing the yard with one arm isn't a lot of fun.

There shall be a shortage of bloggage here for a few days,

due to having effed-up my hand and forearm, which makes typing less than fun. And slow. Just a couple of things I have to pass on:
Oliver Stone is even more of a friggin' idiot than previously thought.

Obama & Co. had a say in the release of the Lockerbie terrorist.

Schieffer is a standard-issue major media jerk.

Charles Sherrod: "We must stop the white man and his Uncle Toms from stealing our elections."

This doesn't seem to fit into the "The Sherrods Are Heroes Of Anti-Racism" crap being thrown around, does it? Riehl took up the challenge and found this.

And that's all from me for now.

Howard Dean is a miserable lying sack of crap

and he proves it once again.

And really doesn't like it when it's pointed out just what a liar he is.
