between what you do manage to hear on major media and what you only hear about if you check news on internet sites(due to our major media being so far in the tank for Obama and his progressive friends that air and light have to be piped in). For instance, they don't want to talk about the illegal alien status of murderers, rapists and drunk drivers, oh no; that wouldn't be sensitive to their open-borders cause, would it? They don't like to talk about law enforcement not doing their damned job on the subject, either; again, that wouldn't help push the open-borders bullshit.
We've got Venezuela under Chavez all huggy-cozy with terrorists and supporters, and Obama ignores it.
The State Department currently designates four nations — Syria, Cuba, Sudan, and Iran — as state sponsors of terrorism. These countries provide ideological support and material assistance to terrorist groups. Once you consider the evidence behind Venezuela's substantial ties with U.S.-designated terrorist organizations and state sponsors of terrorism, we would like to know the strategic implications of designating Venezuela a state sponsor of terrorism. We would also like to know the implications for the integrity of this list if Venezuela continues to evade designation. . . .
Given that Chavez is expected to receive a $20 billion loan from the Chinese Government and his government has just signed yet another multi-billion dollar arms deal with Russia for weapons that far exceed any rational analysis of Venezuela's national defense requirements - it is clear that this is the time to revisit our policies within the region...
We've got Obama pushing for idiots like this to be on the federal appeals courts:
You've got to be pretty hard core to fight against the death penalty in the case of an eight-time serial strangler (seven time rapist, too).
Especially when the rapist-murderer himself doesn't want to fight his execution any further.
You've got to be really hardcore to bully the guy's lawyer into signing a motion for a stay of execution that the client didn't want but you wanted to sign.
Admitted. Guilty as sin.
So why this fight for a rapist-murderer's life?
Obama's nominee thought he was the "least culpable" of all death row inmates, because, he feels, a tendency towards sexual sadism as he had should be a mitigating factor, not merely against the death penalty, but conviction, too.
We've got more on who's involved in the denials of the Sestak claims:
My column today focuses on the White House lawyer behind the Sestak stonewall: Bob Bauer — a familiar figure if you’ve been reading this blog closely. He’s the hubby of former White House Fox-basher-in-chief Anita Dunn and a veteran Democrat legal fixer.
Unrelated to current problems but interesting,
A plan to attack Hitler's bunker in 1943 and a 1944 plot involving an assassin who had gained the trust of the Nazi leadership were both cancelled on Stalin's orders, General Anatoly Kulikov told a historical conference in Moscow on Tuesday.
"A plan to assassinate Hitler in his bunker was developed, but Stalin suddenly cancelled it in 1943 over fears that after Hitler's death his associates would conclude a separate peace treaty with Britain and the United States," Russia's RIA news agency quoted Gen Kulikov as saying.
I'll end this with some balancing good news: as Uncle likes to say, I guess he was compensating for something. I'd guess age and the fact that facing an armed intruder with empty hands generally doesn't work too well:
At about 5:20 a.m., the homeowner and his wife, also in her 80s, discovered the intruder entering their home through a back door. The homeowner, who had a gun, confronted and killed the burglar on the doorstep, police said. Cops said the intruder also fired his gun during the struggle.
"It's a good thing they had a gun, or they might be dead," said Curtis Thompson, who lives next door to the couple, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
