In other news,
Patterson recalls something Newsbusters readers won't have forgotten: White House Communications Director Anita Dunn attacked the legitimacy of Fox News in October and White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod said of Fox's news programming, "it's really not news." Patterson notes that the White House has shown no similar concern for objectivity at ABC: "ABC appears willing to turn over large chunks of its news programming to a politician, if that politician is backed by companies representing more than half of their advertisements. And for the President, it seems it's OK for a news organization to support a point of view - so long as it's his."
Speaking of corrupt Democrats,
Traficant, whose wild hair contributed to an offbeat reputation, was convicted in a raucous trial in 2002 of bribery and racketeering for accepting bribes from businessmen and taking kickbacks from staff members. He then was expelled from Congress, only the second House member since the Civil War to be ousted for unethical conduct.
He says he's proud of being an ex-con and wants to run for office again. He'll fit right in, won't he?
To borrow a line, Some people just look better dead, and the ones responsible for this crap are among them:
Surgeons in Brazil are attempting to save a two-year-old human "voodoo doll."
Doctors in Barreiras hope to remove 42 metal sewing needles -- some as long as two inches -- that were inserted into the boy's body, possibly as part of a black magic ritual.
An official said Thursday that the boy is being airlifted to a hospital in northeastern Brazil because two of the needles are close to his heart, the Associated Press reports.
Althouse pointed to this documentation of sick and/or evil people, and she trails off imagining someone doing this to a child. Which reminded me of something: remember the talk of Obama's father being tied to the Mau Mau rebellion, and the heavy-handedness of the Brits in dealing with it being why Obama treats the Brits badly? Well, have you ever looked up the Mau Mau rebellion? If you do, find the unexpurgated information on the oathing ceremonies, and read it. Then see if you have any problem understanding the Brits being a bit harsh in dealing with some of those people.
Obama looks down upon the world, and throws the US under his bus;
...In his short speech he said the science on climate change is settled, thereby ignoring all of the recent information that indicates how the data used to arrive at that conclusion is being called into serious doubt.
For somebody who constantly chastises his critics as using the "tactic of fear" to question his policies he was sure using it in his short little speech this morning. He said the time to act is now, with not a moment to spare. Anybody who thinks he will not do an end run around the Congress using his energy and environmental czars, along with the supreme imperial power of the EPA, are deluding themselves.
He may or may not be a AGW True Believer, but he damn well believes in power over others, and sees this as a great way to get it.
This nonsense does not bode well for the future. Catch & Release for pirates = more piracy. And every time it happens it convinces more people over in that region that the west doesn't have the will or balls to actually deal with problems.
Totally unrelated to the news, when hit the range a couple of days ago took the Pocket Hammerless .380 along. The sights still suck; but it points so well it hardly matters for the purpose of its design. If you can't keep your shots in the triangle with this thing at self-defense ranges, you may be hopeless. I've got a target, will try to add a picture later.
Nancy Pelosi speaks crap to watermelons:
Pelosi said women should be particularly concerned about the detrimental effects of climate change.
“Women have the most to gain and the most to lose in the climate crisis,” she said. “The impacts are not gender-neutral; as the primary users, managers, and stewards of natural resources, women feel the consequences first.”
Yeah, us dumbass males don't really notice things like higher energy prices and food prices and our kids and grandkids being placed in debt for life by a bunch of power-hungry dirtbag politicians; that's just a woman thing, y'know. And apparently Speaker Jetliners thinks women will like the government(i.e. her) being in charge of their lives.
More on the Russians accusing the CRU of faking data.
Ah, the palistinians, that we're supposed to support because everything bad is the Evil JOOOOOOS! fault:
There are an unusually high number of male pseudohermaphrodite births in the Gaza neighborhood of Jabalya, where Nadir and Ahmed live.
Dr. Jehad Abudaia, a Canadian-Palestinian pediatrician and urologist practicing in Gaza, says he has diagnosed nearly 80 cases like Nadir’s and Ahmed’s in the last seven years.
“It is astonishing that we have [so] many cases with this defect, which is very rare all over the world,” Abudaia says. He attributes the high frequency of this birth defect to “consanguinity,” or in-breeding.
“If you want to go to the root of the problem, this problem runs in families in the genes.” Abudaia says. “They want to get married to cousins… they don’t go to another family. This is a problem.”
I'm sure they've already been blaming the nasty Israelis for this. Somehow. After all, it can't be their own fault, can it?
What Sacramento City Council really thinks of the Bill of Rights. The non-PC parts at least:
Several cities have voted to join the lawsuit brought against the city of Chicago by a resident there. The cities have joined the suit as 'Amicus Curiae,' basically supporting the city's position that the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms, should not apply to local governments.
I wonder what other basic enumerated rights they'll eventually decide 'should not apply to local governments'? I mean, it'd be SO much easier to seize property if not for that pesky 4th...
Washington lawmakers want to attack the eeevillle 'assault weapons' again. From Joe Huffman:
For the clueless bigots in Seattle what that means is that if you managed to get your proposed law passed the U.S. Supreme Court, if not the Washington State courts will overturn it. You know why? Because Obama was elected.
What? Yeah, you read that right.
When Obama won the election the U.S. population went on a gun buying spree the likes of which has never been seen before. The guns they bought were the very guns that those Seattle bigots want to ban. If they weren't already considered "in common use" before Obama's victory they sure are now.
And because of the delay from when a law is first proposed until the time it can become the law of the land anytime some lawmaker starts having the power to ban a particular type of gun the people will have put that gun into "common use" and thus render the law stillborn.
But if those knuckleheads want to waste their time on harassing activities I suppose that is better than some of the other things they might try.
But they'll get to spend millions of other peoples' money and get to play "I CARE!!" while they're wasting said money and trying to screw the citizens, so they'll consider it good.
When dumbass prosecutors, probably egged on by corrupt cops, act:
Before Westberry could finish dialing 9-1-1 on his cell phone, Cujdik stepped through the doorway and punched him in the throat, Westberry said.
That’s when Westberry pulled out his gun and Cujdik fled, Westberry told the Daily News.
But Westberry was brought up on a host of charges, which were, as the Daily News reports, “felony aggravated assault, possession of an instrument of crime, terroristic threats, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.”
Where do corrupt cops come in?
When Cujdik refused, Westberry threatened to call police.
” ‘Do it. My family are cops,’ ” Cujdik said, according to Westberry.
What Westberry didn’t know at that early-morning hour of Palm Sunday, April 5, was that Cujdik’s father, Louis, is a retired police veteran and that his two brothers, Jeffrey and Richard, are narcotics officers.
And if you don't think this had something to do with the bullshit charges, I have some land in Florida to sell you. You're not supposed to cause trouble for Only Ones and their family members.
Someone just called and told me H&H has a sale on, reloading stuff included. I need groceries(not from there), and do I need primers? Need to check. Back later
