The Finnish elections are over. Perussuomalaiset (now it seems to be translated as 'True Finns', well, whatever, but it does not have quite the same meaning) rose from a marginal small time party into the third largest, which may be the biggest election victory in this country ever. One thing they are highly critical about is taking immigrants - they want people who come here to work, are well educated and actually needed, and willing to become, well, true Finns if they stay permanently (okay, maybe that translation isn't so bad after all).
I haven't had time to read this whole piece, what I've gotten through so far is bloody infuriating:
Last Thursday, I reported here exclusively at PJM on a DOJ memo dated March 31, 2010, from Assistant Attorney General David Kris to Acting Deputy Attorney General Gary Grindler. The memo effectively ended the prosecution of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) co-founder and Chairman Emeritus Omar Ahmad — in addition to the prosecution of other prominent American Muslim leaders — for helping support the Hamas terrorist organization. This decision, according to my source, was not made based on the overwhelming evidence that had been compiled over the past decade by the U.S. attorney’s office in Dallas, but was made due to potential political embarrassment for the Obama administration and out of fear of inflaming the American Muslim community.
In all my years working for the U.S. government I have rarely seen anything as mystifying as our outreach to Muslims. Do we really need it? Sure. We need to be reaching out to the Muslim leaders who are working to prevent radicalization, not the ones who are making it happen. But that isn’t what we’re doing.
Instead we’re having countless meetings from the Cabinet level on down with groups and individuals that we know are bad guys and who we’ve repeatedly said in court are actively working to support terrorist groups overseas. We even had [FBI General Counsel] Valerie Caproni meeting regularly with these Hamas guys to get their guidance. What advice do you think they were giving her?
This is bad. Really bad. And when/if it blows up, as usual, the people actually responsible will be hiding behind 'official actions' crap to prevent being held responsible.
No, no reason to worry about this sharia stuff, not at all, nooooo.....
Women who do not wear headscarves are being threatened with violence and even death by Islamic extremists intent on imposing sharia law on parts of Britain, it was claimed today.
Other targets of the 'Talibanesque thugs', being investigated by police in the Tower Hamlets area of London, include homosexuals.
Stickers have been plastered on public walls stating: 'Gay free zone. Verily Allah is severe in punishment'.
Over the last few years I stopped worrying about what the food police said and started eating what I wanted; I like fruits and veggies, and meat, and butter and cheese. And, according to the doc, my health is fine. Then I ran across some of the stuff linked over at Advice Goddess on the subject of fat. Today there's a report from the UK on the subject that's interesting. This bit caught my eye:
'This may also show that, while it is important to eat right, not all bad foods should be avoided all of the time.
'This could change the way we view nutrition and dietary recommendations.'
Thing is, what if they're NOT 'bad foods'? Talk about 'changing the view'...
Really? This is a good example of law enforcement? Geez.
Things to do, amuse yourselves.
