Hollywood Propaganda is Still Effective

Remember those heroic WWII action films they used to show on Saturday morning TV, like "Bataan," or "A Walk in the Sun," that helped boost morale and motivate Americans to fight?



Well Hollywood can still produce propaganda films that deliver -- only now they are doing it for the other side:



A Balkan Muslim who killed two U.S. Air Force servicemen in March has told a German judge Wednesday that he was motivated after seeing the movie “Redacted,” which was made as a political statement in 2007 by Hollywood director Brian De Palma, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and several high-profile movie industry producers.



Arid Uka told the judge that that he murdered the two Americans in March after he watched the movie’s graphic depiction of U.S. soldiers raping a girl in Iraq, according to a BBC report. “I thought what I saw in that video, these people would do in Afghanistan,” he said, the BBC reports.



“What I did was wrong, but I cannot undo what I did,” Arid Uka told the court in Frankfurt.



Of course, the big names who produced and directed the film just don't understand how that could have happened:



“I honestly had not heard about it,” said one “Redacted” producer, Jason Kliot. “I’m terribly sorry to hear that, but I don’t understand how my movie would impel anyone to commit murder,” he said.



“The real culprit here is the tragedy of war, it is not Brian De Palma’s brilliant film,” he said.



“I don’t see how people would be made to commit acts of violence [after watching “Redacted”], any more than they would for watching Fox News,” Kriot said.




Of course not, but that must have been the point, because the movie never made a dime, it was a labor of leftist love:



The movie was widely praised in the movie industry and by left-of-center cultural groups. The movie and De Palma won awards at the 2007 Venice Film Festival, and it received a “Youth Jury Award” from the 2008 Amnesty International Film festival.



But the movie made little money when it was released in Spain and in fifteen U.S. theaters.






The producers, including Mark Cuban, and the director, should be prosecuted.



For treason.

IAEA FINALLY GETS IT RIGHT: IRAN IS BUILDING NUKES - BUT IS IT TOO LATE?

EXCERPT:

The U.N. nuclear agency said Friday it is "increasingly concerned" about a stream of intelligence suggesting that Iran continues to work secretly on developing a nuclear payload for a missile and other components of a nuclear weapons program.

In its report, the International Atomic Energy Agency said "many member states" are providing evidence for that assessment, describing the information it is receiving as credible, "extensive and comprehensive."

The restricted 9-page report was made available Friday to The Associated Press, shortly after being shared internally with the 35 IAEA member nations and the U.N. Security Council.

WE SHOULD PRE-EMPTIVELY ATTACK IRAN ASAP.

DESTROY ALL THEIR NUKE ASSETS, ALL AIRSHIPS AND AIRFIELDS, ALL NAVY VESSELS AND NAVAL PORTS AND ALL IRG ASSETS.

WILL OBAMA DO IT?

DUNNO... MAYBE - IF HE THINKS IT WILL GET HIM RE-ELECTED!

HOW DO YOU SPELL "OBAMA DECIDES NOT TO SEEK 2ND TERM"? S-O-L-Y-N-D-R-A

THE SCANDALOUS $600 MILLION FEDERAL LOAN TO SOLYNDRA WILL CONVINCE OBAMA TO RETIRE AFTER ONE TERM (RATHER THAN FACE IMPEACHMENT).



IF THAT WON'T CONVINCE HIM THEN PERHAPS FAST AND FURIOUS WILL.



I AM NOW 80% SURE HE WON'T RUN - AND WILL DECIDE/ANNOUNCE IT WHEN HE AND HIS TEAM ARE CONVINCED THEY WILL LOSE THE SENATE IN 2012 AND THEREFORE MIGHT ACTUALLY BE CONVICTED AND REMOVED FROM OFFICE AFTER THE HOUSE IMPEACHES HIM.





MONTY PYTHON'S JOHN CLEESE: LONDON IS NO LONGER AN ENGLISH CITY

DM:

John Cleese has sparked controversy after claiming London no longer feels like an English city.

The comedian made the comments during an Australian TV interview with ABC's Chris Uhlmann for the 7.30 show.

After discussing his comedy career, Cleese was asked about last month's UK riots.

He replied: "I'm not sure what's going on in Britain. Or, let me say this: I don't know what's going on in London because London is no longer an English city.

"That's how they got the Olympics, they said 'we're the most cosmopolitan city on Earth'. But it doesn't feel English.

"I had a Californian friend come over two months ago, walk down the King's Road and said to me, 'Well, where are all the English people?'

"I love having different cultures around but when the parent culture kind of dissipates you are left thinking, 'well, what's going on?'"

WHAT'S GOING ON!? WHAT'S GOING ON!? WHAT'S GOING ON!?

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT'S GOING ON:



50 YEARS OF LEFT-WING MULTICULTURALISM THAT VALUES ALL CULTURES EXCEPT ITS OWN!

IS ISLAMIST TURKEY ATTEMPTING TO INSTIGATE A NATO WAR AGAINST ISRAEL?‏

JPOST:

Referring to one of the five measures that Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said at a press conference Friday that Ankara would take against Israel – take measures for freedom of maritime movement in the eastern Mediterranean Sea – the official said that Israel hoped Turkey would "honor international law" in all matters regarding maritime traffic in the Mediterranean.



The other measures he said Israel would take included downgrading diplomatic ties with Israel; freezing all military agreements; no longer recognizing the Gaza blockade and taking the issue to the International Court of Justice; and supporting "flotilla victims" who will take the matter to court.
IMHO:



THERE'S AN ISLAMIST STRATEGY HERE - THAT DATES BACK TO THE INCEPTION OF THE FLOTILLA AND THE MAVI MARMARA'S PARTICIPATION.



NOW, TURKEY WILL ATTEMPT TO BREACH LEGAL BLOCKADE AND INSTIGATE AN IDF ATTACK/BOARDING/SEIZURE OF A TURKISH NAVAL VESSEL AND THEN DEMAND NATO DEFEND TURKEY AND ATTACK ISRAEL.



TURKEY DOESN'T BELONG IN NATO, ANYMORE.



THEY ARE CLOSER TO IRAN.



THEY HATE ISRAEL.

TURKEY EXPELS ISRAELI DIPLOMAT AND DOWNGRADES ALL RELATIONS TO LOWEST LEVEL

NYTIMES:

Turkey said on Friday that it was downgrading its diplomatic and military ties with Israel and expelling its ambassador to register its displeasure at Israel’s refusal to apologize for a commando raid last year on a flotilla bound for Gaza in which nine people died.



Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Turkey would reduce its diplomatic representation in Israel to the level of second secretary — one of the lowest diplomatic ranks — and had ordered Israel’s ambassador, Gaby Levy, to leave Turkey by Wednesday.



Mr. Davutoglu also said that Turkey was suspending all military agreements signed between the former allies, saying “it is time Israel pays a price.” But, he said, relations could return to normal if Israel apologized.



“Our aim here is not to hurt our friendship but to return this friendship to its right track,” Mr. Davutoglu said.
TURKEY SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO ISRAEL FOR SPONSORING WHAT AMOUNTED TO A PARAMILITARY ATTACK ON ISRAEL'S SOVEREIGNTY.



AFTER ALL, THE PALMER REPORT HELD THAT THE SEARCH AND SEIZURES OF SHIPS ATTEMPTING TO ENTER GAZA WAS LEGAL.



AND THE PALMER REPORT SAID THAT THERE WERE PARAMILITARY ABOARD THE TURKISH SPONSORED SHIP AND THAT ISRAEL HAD THE RIGHT TO USE FORCE AGAINST THEM AS THEY RESISTED. THE REPORT MERELY SAID THAT ISRAEL USED TOO MUCH FORCE - A HIGHLY DEBATABLE POINT.



AND ANOTHER THING:



TURKEY SHOULD BE KICKED OUT OF NATO. (SHOULD HAVE BEEN A LONG LONG TIME AGO!)



FOR THIS DIPLOMATIC ATTACK ON ISRAEL AND FOR ATTACKING IRAQ AND FOR SUPPORTING IRAN.



TURKEY UNDER AKP/ISLAMIST RULE CANNOT BE A TRUSTED MEMBER OF NATO.



ISLAMISM AND THE FREE WORLD ARE ENEMIES - ALWAYS HAVE BEEN ANS ALWAYS WILL BE.



WE SHOULD TREAT ALL ISLAMIST COUNTRIES THE WAY THEY DESERVE TO BE TREATED: AS PARIAH STATES INIMICAL TO WESTERN VALUES AND TRADE.

PRO-PALESTINIAN ACTIVISTS DISRUPT ISRAEL PHILHARMONICS IN UK

More on the insanity plaguing Britain:

Protesters with the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) disrupted the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra’s (IPO) BBC Proms concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall Thursday night.



Several demonstrators in the hall shouted as Zubin Mehta stood to conduct Bruch’s violin concerto, however, the rest of the audience booed in response.



While BBC Radio 3 said it had to interrupt its live broadcast twice “as a result of sustained audience disturbance,” some concert-goers claim the performance was interrupted up to seven different times. [...]



The BBC reports that outside the concert hall, roughly 20 PSC demonstrators waved banners and sang songs in protest against the philharmonic’s appearance. They were met, however, by several pro-Israel groups who staged their own protest in response.



Addressing the disruption, the BBC Proms Team took to Twitter, stating: “We’re sorry that the concert was taken off air following hall disturbance. Glad both pieces were heard by the audience in the RAH.”



It later added: “We regret that as a result of sustained audience disturbance tonight’s concert was taken off BBC Radio 3.”
Too bad the thugs don't feel the same way.

NYC'S EXCLUSION OF RESCUE TEAM OPERATORS FROM 9-11 MEMORIAL IS OBSCENE

Socialist NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg's city hall has gone beyond the pale by excluding firefighters, police, and medical operators from the 9-11 memorial:

In a decision that has rocked the world of emergency services, New York City will not invite police, firefighters and other emergency personnel to ceremonies at Ground Zero marking the tenth anniversary of the terror attack that toppled the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.



A spokesman for Mayor Michael Bloomberg confirmed the news in a statement saying that the September 11th memorial ceremony would be restricted solely to family members of victims who died on the site.



“While we are again focused on accommodating victims' family members, given the space constraints, we're working to find ways to recognize and honor first responders, and other groups, at different places and times,” said spokesman Andrew Brent.



There has been an a flurry of outrage over the news. Thousands of police officers, firefighters, emergency medical personnel and volunteers risked their own lives trying desperately around the clock, for days, to extricate victims trapped beneath the wreckage of the massive Twin Towers.



The families of the first responders who raced to the scene, and whose lives were forfeit as a result, have themselves responded with emotions ranging from shock to rage. “It's a painful insult for many of the approximately 3,000 men and women [who] risked their lives, limbs and lungs on that monumental day, puncturing another hole in a still searing wound,” reported CNN earlier this month.
When the election for new mayor of NYC is held, which I assume is next year, I hope that residents are finally going to elect a better one than the horrific Bloomberg, whose own record is absolutely awful, and this offensive act only adds to his dismal record.

PREDICTION: GOLD WILL HIT $2011 IN 2011

SEEKING ALPHA:

We discussed the reasons last month why gold would go to $2,000 an ounce by the end of August. That did not happen, and it fell well short of that level, closing at roughly $1,830 an ounce. Still, gold had a spectacular month, gaining 12% during August, thanks in part to worries over the S&P downgrade of U.S. debt, Eurozone problems and concerns over slowing growth around the world.

None of those problems have gone away, they have just been pushed out a few weeks...

none of those problems were resolved (S&P did downgrade U.S. debt, so I guess this problem was solved, albeit negatively) and we have more concerns coming in September, the logical move is higher. We are also starting to move into the holiday buying season, which tends to push prices higher. In India, gold is considered a big gift, and gold prices generally rise as we get towards the end of the year.

There is still a crisis of confidence around the world, although it has calmed down somewhat. There is also concern that as the third quarter comes to a close, we will see earnings reports for a lot of companies be revised down, and money has to go somewhere.

We saw what happened during August when there was a crisis of confidence; money all piles into one place-- precious metals, particularly gold. Gold jumped 12% during the month. If the Fed does decide to enact "QE3" in September, we could see $2,000 an ounce by the meeting, or perhaps slightly after. The U.S. dollar will continue to nosedive, and precious metals will be the beneficiaries... the situation does not look any better than it did just a few short weeks ago.

When you have a crisis of confidence, everyone heads for the exit. The only door that is open? Gold. $2,000 an ounce is closer than you think. Wake me up when September ends.

AND THEN THERE'S THIS NEWS:

China central banker warns global economic risks increasing

The global economy faces risks from both slowed growth and persistent inflationary pressure, which is flowing from emerging to advanced economies, Ma Delun, a vice-governor at China's central bank, said in comments reported on Friday.

Ma told a financial forum in far western China on Thursday that slowed growth in the United States, Europe's debt problems, and Japan's poor economic performance were adding to those global risks, the China News Service reported.

Gold $2000, and Dow 9000. Sigh.

A REAL GREAT LETTER TO A REAL GREAT TEACHER

HERE'S A LETTER THAT A MIDDLE-AGED WROTE TO THE GRADE SCHOOL TEACHER WHO MOST INFLUENCED HIS LIFE.



AFER READING IT, GUESS WHO WROTE IT. (THE ANSWER IS IN COMMENTS.)

Dear [TEACHER'S NAME],

I let the commotion around me these days subside a bit before speaking to you from the bottom of my heart.

I have just been given far too great an honor, one I neither sought nor solicited. But when I heard the news, my first thought, after my mother, was of you.

Without you, without the affectionate hand you extended to the small poor child that I was, without your teaching, and your example, none of all this would have happened.

I don't make too much of this sort of honor. But at least it gives me an opportunity to tell you what you have been and still are for me, and to assure you that your efforts, your work, and the generous heart you put into it still live in one of your little schoolboys who, despite the years, has never stopped being your grateful pupil. I embrace you with all my heart.

WE SHOULD ALL ENDEAVOR TO HAVE THE EFFECT THIS TEACHER HAD ON HIS PUPIL ON THOSE AROUND US, AND TO EXPRESS OUR GRATITUDE TO THOSE WHO HAVE HELPED US JUST AS FORTHRIGHTLY.

OBAMA'S GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: REVEALING THE FUTILITY OF LEFTIST POLICIES TO A NEW GENERATION OF AMERICANS

DESPITE YEARS OF OBAMA'S LEFTIST POLICIES, THINGS ARE GETTING WORSE AND KIDS ARE HAVING AN AWFUL TIME GETTING JOBS.



THEY WILL REMEMBER THIS IN 2012.

GLOOMY ECONOMIC PREDICTIONS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE BUDGET OFFICE MIGHT LEAD TO A PRIMARY CHALLENGE

New White House budget projections indicate a 9 percent unemployment rate next year as President Barack Obama tries to win a second term.



The figures from the White House budget office predict that the economy will grow by just 1.7 percent this year, a full percentage point less than the administration predicted at the beginning of 2011. The economy grew by just 0.7 percent in the first half of the year, the slowest pace since the
recession ended two years ago.



The White House report also sees the budget deficit topping $1.3 trillion. That would be slightly higher than last year
I THINK THE LEFT WILL BLAME OBAMA'S INCOMPETENCE AND THAT A LEFTIST LIKE HOWARD DEAN OR BERNIE SAUNDERS OR DENNIS KUCINICH WILL MOUNT A PRIMARY CHALLENGE TO DEFEND THEIR LEFTIST POLICIES.



IOW: IT'LL BE A LAST GASP ATTEMPT FOR THE LEFT TO SAY THAT OBAMA WAS BAD BECAUSE HE WASN'T LEFTIST ENOUGH OR EFFECTIVE ENOUGH.



THEY'RE IN DEEP DENIAL.



YES: OBAMA IS INCOMPETENT AND CORRUPT, BUT THE REAL REASON THE NATION IS DOING WORSE THAN EVER IS THE LEFTISM.



IT'S THE LEFTISM, STUPID!



HERE'S ONE LIKELY SCENARIO:



SAUNDERS DECLARES IN NOVEMBER. THEN AS UNEMPLOYMENT GOES UP BETWEEN DECEMBER AND JANUARY, DEAN DECLARES - FOLLOWED BY KUCINICH.



AFTER OBAMA TAKES A SERIOUS HIT FROM DEAN IN THE NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY, HILLARY WILL DECLARE AND OBAMA WILL WITHDRAW.

ANOTHER SIGN THAT THE STUDENT LOAN BUBBLE WILL SOON BURST?

Discounted consolidation in the student loan arena:

Discover Financial Services says it is buying another $2.5 billion in private student loans from Citigroup. The deal, disclosed in a regulatory filing, comes nine months after Discover bought Citi's private student loan business, The Student Loan Corp., and a portfolio of loans and other assets totaling $4.2 billion.



The price for the latest deal is roughly 99 percent of the face value of the loans, which translates to about $2.48 billion. The purchase is expected to close by Sept. 30.



In June, Discover said it held $52.5 billion in student loans, including a 5 percent increase that reflected the Student Loan Corp. buyout, as of May 31, the end of its fiscal second quarter.



Discover shares fell 15 cents to $25.01 in morning trading. Citigroup Inc. shares fell 50 cents to $30.55.
Perhaps the banks who own a lot of student loans are expecting the bubble to burst and want to either get out completely or get bigger so they are TOO BIG TO FAIL and are guaranteed a federal bailout.

The direct fruits of appeasement: 23 DEAD, 80 WOUNDED

YES: the DIRECT fruits of appeasement: 23 dead, 80 wounded

A high-ranking Nigerian official tells The Associated Press that the oil-rich nation released several radical Muslims detained in 2007 on suspicion of being terrorists, including a man who officials now say helped organize last week's deadly car bombing at the United Nations headquarters in the nation's capital. The men arrested four years ago had allegedly been caught with explosives. The official said their rapid release from detention was apparently aimed at placating Muslim groups.
IF THEY HADN'T TRIED TO APPEASE OR PLACATE THESE "MUSLIM GROUPS" THEN THESE 23 PEOPLE WOULD BE ALIVE AND THE 80 OTHERS UNWOUNDED.



INSTEAD, THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT SENT A MESSAGE THAT THEY CAN BE SCARED INTO DOING WHAT THE JIHADISTS WANT THEM TO DO AND THIS ONLY ENCOURAGED THE JIHADISTS TO INFLICT MORE TERROR UPON NIGERIANS.



THE ONLY PROPER RESPONSE TO TERROR - THE ONLY POLICY THAT CAN MAKE US SAFER - IS COUNTER-ATTACKING WITH GREATER FORCE.



WE MUST DO SO BEFORE IRAN GETS NUKES.

I EXPECT BOTH TO GO BADLY FOR THOSE HOPING FOR A QUICK SOLUTION TO OUR GLOBAL DOUBLE DIP. GERMANY WILL RULE THAT THE BAILOUTS ARE ILLEGAL, AND OBAMA WON;T SAY ANYTHING NEW OR CONFIDENCE-BUILDING OR EVEN MEMORABLE --- LIKE 'THE ERA OF BIG UNAFFORDABLE GOVERNMENT IS OVER!".



AS A RESULT, A LARGE NUMBER OF LARGE INVESTORS WILL RESPOND BY BAILING ON THE EURO AND THE DOLLAR AND THEIR EURO AND DOLLAR STOCKS.

9/11 10th Anniversary Propaganda Watch: An Unlikely Friendship

In the next few weeks, we are going to be subjected to a long stream of unrelenting and poisonous propaganda. 


In this story, we are being indoctrinated with a lesson in "forgiveness"; a Mother who lost her son, in the 9/11 Attacks by Muslims on America, is now "friends" with the Mother of Zacharias Moussaoui, who was convicted of playing a large role in the attacks. 

Isn't that just special?


I put the word "friends" in quotation marks here because I think it is more likely that this "Mother" is a Leftist suck-ass whose friendship with the Mousaoui Mom is more of an Gramscian maneuver to weaken the resolve of Western Civilization in the face of the existential Jihadist threat.


This woman, Phyllis Rodgiguez is a a vile, abominable, disgusting pig of a "Mother". In befriending the Mother of a Mujahadeen, and holding up her friendship as some sort of vaunted morality play for the betterment of America, she betrays that she is not an example of forgiveness, but instead is a Trojan Horse, let in through the gates, only to open up and declare war on the reasonable impulse in Americans towards group survival.


So, here on what seems to be day one of the propaganda war, a hearty Infidel "Fuck you" to Phyllis Rodriguez. 

I swear to you I will not personally kill this woman.

From Yahoo Propaganda (Orwellian News Division):


For anyone who lost a loved one on 9/11, the urge to be vengeful toward those connected to the attackers must be overwhelming. But that isn't true of everyone.

Phyllis Rodriguez lost her son Greg in the attack on the World Trade Center. In the years since that terrible loss, she has formed what many consider to be an unusual friendship with Aicha el-Wafi, the mother of Zacarias Moussaoui, who was convicted of playing a large role in the attacks. He is currently serving a life sentence for his crimes.

Back in December, the two spoke at a conference for women, where Rodriguez talked about their mutual admiration for each other. Rodriguez remarked, "When I saw Aicha in the media coming over when her son was indicted, I thought, 'what a brave woman, someday I want to meet her... when I'm stronger.'"

In 2002, el-Wafi asked to be put in touch with the parents of the victims.

She was introduced to five families. She met Phyllis, and she "saw in her eyes that she was a mother" (like el-Wafi). A respectful relationship quickly formed.

When the two met, they were both nervous, not knowing what they wanted from each other. By the end of the afternoon, they felt like they'd known each other for a long time. Rodriguez says she feels the two have "a special connection which she values very much, that's all about being afraid of the other but making that step."

Rodriguez goes on to say that when people heard that her son had died on 9/11, she got immediate sympathy. But el-Wafi earned no such sympathy even though, in Rodriguez's words, "her suffering is equal."
There is no sense in which the suffering of the mother of a serial murderer (who is killed in the act of committing serial murder) is equal to the suffering of the mother whose son is murdered. That statement is patently absurd. 

The Mother of a murderer is the mother of a shameful son. She did not have a son stolen from her. Instead, her son conspired to destroy the lives of tens of thousands of human beings, in the name of a hateful God.


I puke on Allah in your name.

AMERICA IS BECOMING ASIAN AND HISPANIC

FACT:

Minorities accounted for 98 percent of the population growth in the nation’s largest metropolitan areas over the past decade, according to a new report, as the country’s white population continued to stagnate, and in many places, decline.

Hispanics and Asians led population growth in the country’s 100 largest metropolitan areas over the past decade, growing by 41 percent and 43 percent respectively. The population of blacks grew by 12 percent, and the aging white population was largely flat, increasing by less than 1 percent.

William H. Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution and the author of the report, also said the United States had reached a demographic milestone: About half of all recent births were to minority parents, a shift that will have broad policy implications in the years to come.



THIS IS INCREDIBLY VISIBLE IN NYC - WHERE 50% OF THE PEOPLE NO LONGER SPEAK ENGLISH AS THEIR FIRST LANGUAGE!

THE PROBLEM IS NOT REPEAT NOT RACIAL; IT'S CULTURAL:

MOST OF THESE PEOPLE ARE EDUCATED IN OUR DECADENT MULTICULTURAL CURRICULUM AND NO LONGER IDENTIFY WITH AMERICA OR AMERICAN HISTORY OR AMERICAN CULTURE OR AMERICAN VALUES.

THEY DON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION AND THE WW2 AND PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF JEFFERSON OR LINCOLN.

IF THIS CONTINUES, THEN AMERICA WILL GO THE WAY OF ATLANTIS, BUT THROUGH THE DRIP-DRIP-DRIP OF DEMOGRAPHICS & MULTICULTURALIST POLICIES, AND NOT A DELUGE.

THESE URBAN "UN-AMERICANIZED" MASSES ARE BECOMING A CORE CONSTITUENCY OF THE LEFT - IN PART TO FUEL THEIR DESTRUCTIVE MULTICULTURAL POLICIES.

ORGANIZATIONS LIKE LA RAZA AND IDEOLOGIES LIKE MULTICULTURALISM ARE DESTRIOYING US FROM WITHIN.

WE MUST DEFEAT OBAMA TO DEFEAT THEM AND KEEP THE LAST BEST HOPE OF HUMANITY FROM DISAPPEARING FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

MAN'S FIRST TOOL IS ONLY 1.8 MILLION YEARS OLD



One hallmark of Homo erectus, a forerunner of modern humans, was his stone tools, an advanced technology reflecting a good deal of forethought and dexterity. Up to now, however, scientists have been unable to pin a firm date on the earliest known evidence for his stone tool-making.

A new geological study, being reported Thursday in the journal Nature, showed that tools from a site near Lake Turkana in Kenya were made about 1.76 million years ago, the earliest of their ilk found so far. Previous dates were estimates ranging from 1.4 million to 1.6 million years ago.

IT ONLY TOOK MANKIND 1.8 MILLION YEARS TO GO FROM THAT TO THIS:



IF JIHADISTS WIN WW4, WE MIGHT SOON BE USING MORE OF THE FORMER THAN THE LATTER!



JIHADO-THUGS CAN DESTROY THINGS, BUT THEY'RE NOT VERY GOOD AT ANYTHING CONSTRUCTIVE.

IF THE GREEN ECONOMY WAS REALLY ANY GOOD, THEN SOMPANIES LIKE THIS WOULDN'T HAVE NEEDED $500 MILLION IN GOVERNMENT SUPPORT - SUPPORT THAT IS NOW DOWN THE FREAKIN' OBAMUNIST TERLET.



FACT:



OBAMA HAD WASTED MORE MONEY IN THREE YEARS IN HIS CORRUPT SOCIAL AGENDA POSING AS STIMULUS, THAN "BUSH'S WAR'S" COST TO DATE.

What else might fundamentalist Muslims destroy in Egypt? See 13 things Egyptian your grandchildren will never see at Planck's Constant.



And Obama plans to praise the Arab Spring during the upcoming 9/11 commemoration.

GREAT: LIBYAN REBEL LEADER IS AL QAEDA

AT:

... an al-Qaeda asset turned out to be the top Libyan military commander in still war-torn Tripoli is bound to shatter - once again - that wilderness of mirrors that is the "war on terror", as well as deeply compromising the carefully constructed propaganda of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's (NATO's) "humanitarian" intervention in Libya.



Muammar Gaddafi's fortress of Bab-al-Aziziyah was essentially invaded and conquered last week by Belhaj's men - who were at the forefront of a militia of Berbers from the mountains southwest of Tripoli. The militia is the so-called Tripoli Brigade, trained in secret for two months by US Special Forces.



This turned out to be the rebels' most effective militia in six months of tribal/civil war.



Already last Tuesday, Belhaj was gloating on how the battle was won, with Gaddafi forces escaping "like rats" (note that's the same metaphor used by Gaddafi himself to designate the rebels).



Abdelhakim Belhaj, aka Abu Abdallah al-Sadek, is a Libyan jihadi. Born in May 1966, he honed his skills with the mujahideen in the 1980s anti-Soviet jihad in Afghanistan.



He's the founder of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and its de facto emir - with Khaled Chrif and Sami Saadi as his deputies. After the Taliban took power in Kabul in 1996, the LIFG kept two training camps in Afghanistan; one of them, 30 kilometers north of Kabul - run by Abu Yahya - was strictly for al-Qaeda-linked jihadis.
SO IT LOOKS LIKE THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD WILL TAKE OVER EGYPT, AND AL QAEDA WILL GET LIBYA.



THANKS OBAMA!

WEASEL ZIPPERS IS RIDICULOUSLY WRONG ABOUT MITT AND GEORGE ROMNEY

WEASEL ZIPPERS ACTUALLY POSTED THIS TRIPE:

George Romney was a businessman most of his life - just like Mitt.



Weasel Zippers is a moron. A good hawk and a conservative, but a moron.



No candidate is perfect.



Mitt would be better than Obama.



WZ should stick to the facts and the issues and the values that matter, and not deal in wildly wrong personal attacks.



USING LICHTMAN'S 13 POINT SYSTEM, I PREDICT OBAMA WILL ONLY CARRY DC

ALLAHPUNDIT:

Lichtman developed his 13 Keys in 1981. They test the performance of the party that holds the presidency. If six or more of the 13 keys go against the party in power, then the opposing party wins.“The keys have figured into popular politics a bit,” Lichtman says. “They’ve never missed. They’ve been right seven elections in a row. A number that goes way beyond statistical significance in a record no other system even comes close to.”

They’ve been right seven elections in a row about the popular vote.



... For fair-use reasons, I can’t excerpt Lichtman’s analysis of how the 13 Keys will play out for Obama next year, so follow the link up top and read through.



He’s got The One winning on nine of 13 counts:

1. No contested primary

2. Incumbency

3. No third-party candidate

4. Major domestic-policy changes in his first term

5. No social unrest

6. No major scandals

7. No major foreign-policy failures

8. Major foreign-policy achievements in his first term (killing Bin Laden)

9. Little charisma by his likely opponent

The GOP wins three categories:

1. The incumbent’s party lost seats in the last House election

2. The long-term economy looks poor

3. Little charisma by the incumbent

Let's fisk them, shall we:

1. No contested primary
MAYBE

2. Incumbency
OKAY - 1 FOR 2

3. No third-party candidate
MAYBE

4. Major domestic-policy changes in his first term
BUT OBAMA'S CHANGES FAILED TO LOWER UNEMPLOYMENT OR HEALTH COSTS WHILE ADDING 4 TRILLION TO THE DEBT AND GETTING US OUR FIRST EVER DOWNGRADE

5. No social unrest
TEA PARTY

6. No major scandals
FAST AND FURIOUS

7. No major foreign-policy failures
NOT IF YOU ASK THE LEFT:



HE FAILED TO CLOSE GITMO OR BRING THE TROOPS HOME FROM IRAQ OR AFGHANISTAN AND THINGS ARE WORSE IN AFGHANISTAN AND PAKISTAN AND EGYPT AND SYRIA.

8. Major foreign-policy achievements in his first term (killing Bin Laden)

China: Lack of Values Is A Sign of Disaster To Come

I have written repeatedly of China's one-child policy and how it will lead to the destruction of China's Socialist Ponzi Scheme of an Economy. But, there is more decadence to China than merely their neo-genocidal policy on procreation.



From Ai Weiwei at The Daily Beast::

Beijing is two cities. One is of power and of money. People don’t care who their neighbors are; they don’t trust you. The other city is one of desperation. I see people on public buses, and I see their eyes, and I see they hold no hope. They can’t even imagine that they’ll be able to buy a house. They come from very poor villages where they’ve never seen electricity or toilet paper.



Every year millions come to Beijing to build its bridges, roads, and houses. Each year they build a Beijing equal to the size of the city in 1949. They are Beijing’s slaves. They squat in illegal structures, which Beijing destroys as it keeps expanding. Who owns houses? Those who belong to the government, the coal bosses, the heads of big enterprises. They come to Beijing to give gifts—and the restaurants and karaoke parlors and saunas are very rich as a result.



Beijing tells foreigners that they can understand the city, that we have the same sort of buildings: the Bird’s Nest, the CCTV tower. Officials who wear a suit and tie like you say we are the same and we can do business. But they deny us basic rights. You will see migrants’ schools closed. You will see hospitals where they give patients stitches—and when they find the patients don’t have any money, they pull the stitches out. It’s a city of violence.



The worst thing about Beijing is that you can never trust the judicial system. Without trust, you cannot identify anything; it’s like a sandstorm. You don’t see yourself as part of the city—there are no places that you relate to, that you love to go. No corner, no area touched by a certain kind of light. You have no memory of any material, texture, shape. Everything is constantly changing,



... there are many hidden spots where they put people without identity. With no name, just a number. They don’t care where you go, what crime you committed. They see you or they don’t see you, it doesn’t make the slightest difference. There are thousands of spots like that. Only your family is crying out that you’re missing. But you can’t get answers from the street communities or officials, or even at the highest levels, the court or the police or the head of the nation. My wife has been writing these kinds of petitions every day, making phone calls to the police station every day. Where is my husband? Just tell me where my husband is. There is no paper, no information.



This city is not about other people or buildings or streets but about your mental structure. If we remember what Kafka writes about his Castle, we get a sense of it. Cities really are mental conditions. Beijing is a nightmare. A constant nightmare.
There are several things Weiwei outlines here which portend the collapse of a society. Pulling stitches out of the bodies of people who can not afford their medical bills indicates a lack of the kind of trust and care for the common man which inevitably leads to a dog eat dog, feeding frenzy type of mentality. As Natan Sharansky has so eloquently pointed out, Fear Societies inevitably break down as people find it impossible to cooperate with each other.



Additionally, China's lack of a paper trail in the Judicial system is a sign not only of decadence but of a type of chaos which is evidence of an unsustainable society.



China is a Potemkin village of a nation, where human beings are imported in and out of large cities to build the appearance of opulence, while behind the cardboard structures, humans live in fear, anger, distrust, and animalistic squalor.



One day, perhaps very soon, the wind will shift, and this entire facade of a nation will blow over, and we will be left with the vision of a billion human beings squatting in a surreal, shape-shifting concentration camp of a "society"; a humanitarian crisis right out of the Matrix.



How will we clean up such a mess?

IRAN TAKING STEPS TO ENSURE THE ISLAMIZATION OF LIBYA

Iran has invited the chairman of Libya's National Transitional Council to visit Teheran, according to an Iranian foreign ministry statement quoted by the AFP news agency Tuesday.



According to the statement, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi spoke with NTC head Mustafa Abdel Jalil on the phone and "congratulated the victory of the Muslim people of Libya and stressed [the need] to deepen bilateral ties."
I THINK THE SO-CALLED "ARAB SPRING" WILL TURN OUT TO BE MORE LIKE THE ISLAMIC REBELLION AGAINST THE SHAH, THAN A DEMOCRATIC REVOLUTION.

UH-OH: EURO-ZONE ECONOMIES WEAKEN... ER, UM ...UNEXPECTEDLY

Euro zone economic sentiment fell more than expected in August, underlining prospects for slower economic growth and expectations that the European Central Bank may cut inflation forecasts and cease raising interest rates.

Reuters



A monthly European Commission survey showed economic sentiment in the 17 countries using the euro, a good indication of future economic activity, fell to 98.3 in August from a revised 103 in July with optimism declining in all sectors.



Economists polled by Reuters had expected a fall to 100.5.



"The decline in sentiment clearly indicates that the euro zone economy has lost a lot of momentum. As a result, growth will probably remain very sluggish in the second half of the year, while the risks are tilted to the downside," said Aline Schuiling, economist at ABN AMRO Bank.
THE MARKETS HAVE HAD 6 UP DAYS IN A ROW - MORE OR LESS.



THIS IS TO GET THE SUCKERS BACK INTO THE MARKET.



A BIG CORRECTION IS COMING.

MORE SIGNS THE EUROZONE WILL BREAK APART...

POLITICALLY THERE IS NO APPETITE IN GERMANY FOR BAILING OUT THE LESS PRODUCTIVE MORE SPEND-THRIFT NATIONS:

GERMAN chancellor Angela Merkel warned in a campaign speech yesterday that countries that do not do their homework on reducing debts will not be able to count on support from Eurozone countries.

Merkel told a rally in the northeastern German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern that countries which are willing to make a lasting and credible detour away from policies of heavy indebtedness can count of solidarity from other Eurozone states.

“But those that don't do their homework will not get our support,” Merkel said at the rally of her conservative Christian Democrats (CDU) in the state capital Schwerin ahead of an election this week.

Merkel also spoke out once again against the issuance of joint eurozone bonds.

AND THE OVERWHLEMING MAJORITY OF PROFESSIONAL MONEY MANAGERS AND INVESTORS AGREE THAT THE EUROZONE NEEDS TO BE SMALLER:

EU leaders trying to dig Europe out of its debt crisis should be planning an orderly break up of the single currency, according to almost two-thirds (62 per cent) of City A.M’s Voice of the City panel, run in association with PoliticsHome.com.

Thirty-eight per cent said they “strongly approve” of a Eurozone break-up, with a further 24 per cent saying they “somewhat approve”.

Our panel – drawn from business and finance professional across the City – also threw its weight behind calls for indebted Eurozone countries such as Greece to be left to default on their debt.

Sixty-three per cent of those surveyed would approve of allowing a Greek default, compared to just 32 per cent that who would oppose a lack of intervention.

THE SOONER GREECE AND OTHER WEAK COUNTRIES LEAVE THE EURO THE BETTER FOR THE GREEKS AND THE EURO.

BTW: THAT POLL SHOWS THAT 62% OF THOSE WHO KNOW THE MOST ABOUT INTERNATIONAL FINANCE THINK THE EURO SUCKS.

ONLY SOCIALIST POLITICIANS AND CAREER BUREAUCRATS FAVOR THE EURO.

AND THE CHINESE.

LET THE TERRAFORMING ON MARS BEGIN!

The soil on Mars may be more capable of supporting life than previously thought, a new study suggests.

ANALYSIS OF MUMMIES' HAIR REVEAL ANCIENT EGYPTIANS USED "PRODUCT"

...researchers studied hair from 18 mummies (15 mummified in a desert cemetery called the Dakhleh Oasis and three from museum samples of unknown origin) who lived around 300 B.C. in ancient Egypt. By taking a close look at the hairs under a microscope, the researchers noticed that nine of these mummies had an unknown substance coating their hair.

Chemical analyses of the coating revealed it was made up of fatty acids from both plant and animal origins.

The researchers believe that this fat-based hair gel was used by the Egyptians to mold and hold the hair in position to enhance appearance, since some of the deceased that had been mummified naturally in the desert also had fats in their hair. When mummified using embalming chemicals, the undertakers seem to have taken special care to retain the deceased's hairdos, as they used different chemicals on different parts of the body.

I GUESS WE SHOULDN'T BE SURPRISED THAT THE VAIN FOLKS WHO WANTED THEIR BODIES TO MUMMIFIED WERE ALSO VAIN ENOUGH TO USE "PRODUCT."

MAKES THEM A LOT LIKE US TODAY...

FALLOUT FROM "ARAB SPRING": GAZANS GET LIBYAN ARTILLERY

Palestinians in Gaza have acquired anti-aircraft and anti-tank rockets from Libya during its six-month civil war, enlarging but not significantly improving their arsenal, Israeli officials said on Monday.



While the rebellion against Muammar Gaddafi has stirred concern abroad about the fate of Libya's aging chemical weapons stockpiles, Israel has no indication Hamas or other Palestinian factions have sought these, the officials said.



Instead, Israeli officials have detected an inflow of SA-7 anti-aircraft missiles and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), said one official, describing an overland supply route that opened up between eastern Libya -- after it fell to the rebels -- and the Gaza Strip via Egypt.



"We've been seeing more SA-7s and RPGs coming across," said the official. "It's not a major qualitative enhancement for them."
IT'S JUST THE START.



ONCE THE MUSLIM BROTHERHHOD CONTROLS LIBYA AND EGYPT AND SYRIA AND JORDAN ALL HELL WILL BREAK LOOSE.

INTERNET CACHE OF PERRY/AGA KHAN CURRICULUM WERE REMOVED FROM INTERNET SEARCH RESULTS

MIXED METAPHORS FROM CHINA: IS SINO-FOREST FRAUD THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG... OR THE PIN THAT WILL BURST THE CHINESE REAL ESTATE BUBBLE?

BOTH:

Toronto-listed Sino-Forest has seen its stock price plummet since June 2, when short-seller Carson Block and his firm, Muddy Waters, accused it of fraudulently exaggerating the size of its forestry assets.

Its market capitalization has fallen by roughly $4.1 billion since.

Sino-Forest has denied any wrongdoing and has appointed a committee of independent directors to investigate the matter. Chan could not be immediately reached for comment on Monday.

However, last Friday, the Ontario Securities Commission ordered a 15-day halt in trading of Sino-Forest shares and said it appeared that Chan and other executives had misrepresented revenues and kept bogus accounts, leading to Chan's voluntary resignation this past weekend.

The Sino-Forest saga is the most prominent of a series of recent accounting scandals to have buffeted investor confidence in Chinese companies listed in North America, triggering a flurry of regulatory probes both in Canada and the United States.

FAMED HEDGE FUND MANAGER JOHN PAULSON - WHO MADE BILLIONS BETTING THERE WOULD THE USA REAL ESTATE BUBBLE WOULD BURST WHEN IT DID - SOLD HIS SINO FOREST IN JUNE.

IT'S PROBABLY TIME FOR EVERYONE TO SELL ALL THEIR CHINESE STOCK HOLDINGS, AS THE WIDESPREAD FINANCIAL FRAUD AND OVER-DEVELOPMENT OF REAL ESTATE AT INFLATED PRICES CANNOT BE LONG SUSTAINED.

THE PROBLEM IS... WHERE DO YOU PUT IT?!?!?!

AS SEEN ON TV: OBAMA SUPPORTER REASONS WITH A RICK PERRY SUPPORTER

THOSE WHO ADVOCATE A LAND-FOR-PEACE DEAL BETWEEN ARABS AND ISRAELIS - INCLUDING ISRAELI DOVES - ARE LIKE PEOPLE WHO TELL WOMEN NOT TO RESIST A RAPIST

Don't scream. Don't scratch him. Don't resist. Don't carry mace or hot pepper spray and G-D forbid don't carry a gun!



Just close your eyes and wait for it to end. Then rinse off.



That's what liberals want women to do. They don't want you to resist the rapist.



That's what liberals want Israel to do.



They want Jerusalem raped.



They want Israel to stop resisting and just lay down and spread her legs and let the islamo-thugs rape her.



That's what the people who want "peace now" are really advocating. Meretz. Obama and the new Democrat Party.



They would rather see Israel raped than the rapist punished. They fear the rapist. Or secretly - even unconsciously root for the rapist.



They think that if they cooperate with the rapist that he'll just go away. It's cowardice.



They think they can rinse off. But they can't wash off the cowardice.



They are actually aiding and abetting the rapist.



They are not for peace; they are on the other side.

TERRORIST ATTACK IN TEL AVIV - BY GUESS WHO!?!?!?

A Palestinian attacker wounded five Israeli policemen and civilians near a Tel Aviv nightclub early Monday, hitting several people with his car and then stabbing others, police said.

The attacker was a 19-year-old from the Palestinian city of Nablus, according to Israeli police spokeswoman Luba Samri.

Just before 2 a.m., the attacker hit two people with a car that was apparently stolen, she said.

THE SO-CALLED PALESTINIANS ARE BEASTLY ISLAMO-THUGS - MURDEROUS SCUM.

LET'S GIVE THEM A COUNTRY!

THINK I'M WRONG ABOUT THEM BEING ISLAMO-THUIGS!?

HERE'S MORE PROOF:

Investigators searched the rubble of the shattered United Nations headquarters building here in the Nigerian capital on Sunday as the number of deaths climbed to at least 21 and questions lingered about who bore responsibility for Friday’s suicide car bombing, even as men who said they were representatives of a radical Islamist sect claimed it.
NOT A ZIONIST JEW WAS AMONG THE VICTIMS.

IDIOT LEFTISTS THINK "SELF DEFENSE" MEANS "HOME DEFENSE" AND NOT ER... UM... SELF DEFENSE

LIBERALS ARE FREAKIN' MORONS:

The 2nd Amendment’s “right to keep and bear arms” is proving to be a right to keep a gun at home, but so far not a right to bear a loaded firearm in public.

The Supreme Court breathed new life into the amendment when it struck down strict handgun bans in Washington and Chicago and spoke of the “inherent right of self-defense.”

But to the dismay of gun rights advocates, judges in recent months have read those decisions narrowly and rejected claims from those who said they had a constitutional right to carry a loaded gun on their person or in their car. Instead, these judges from California to Maryland have said the “core right” to a gun is limited to the home.

MORE:

... "The 2nd Amendment does not create a fundamental right to carry a concealed weapon in public," U.S. District Judge Morrison England ruled in May.



"That's the cutting-edge issue: whether the 2nd Amendment applies outside the home," said Chuck Michel, an NRA lawyer in Long Beach who has appealed the question to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.



State judges in Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts and New York have also ruled recently that there is no constitutional right to carry a loaded gun for self-defense. And in Virginia, the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the federal conviction of a man who fell asleep in his car near Washington's Reagan National Airport with a loaded gun.

IDIOTS.

HERE'S AN EXCERPT FROM THE 2ND AMENDMENT:

the right of the people to keep and bear Arms

OUR FOUNDERS KNEW WHAT "KEEP AND BEAR" MEANT.

"BEAR" MEANS TO HAVE ON YOUR PERSON.

LITERALLY "TO CARRY".

PERIOD.

(AND DON'T QUOTE ME THAT IN THE 19TH CENTURY THERE WERE PLENTY OF LAWS LIMITING THE RIGHT TO CARRY CONCEALED WEAPONS.

THERE WERE PLENTY OF BAD DECISIONS BY ALL THE COURTS BACK THEN - DRED SCOTT COMES TO MIND!).

LEFTISTS ARE MENDACIOUS IMMORAL SCUM.

YEAH, I SAID IT - SCUM.

THEY WANT TO ERADICATE THE SECOND AMENDMENT SO YOU CAN'T DEFEND YOURSELF FROM HARM.

THIS IS AS EVIL AS THE OTHER TOUCHSTONE OF THEIR IDEOLOGY - ABORTION RIGHTS.

THAT'S THE LEFTISTS IDEA THAT MOTHERS HAVE THE RIGHT TO MURDER THE BABIES-IN-THEIR-WOMB AT WILL.

LEFTISTS ARE MURDEROUS EVIL SCUM.

WHETHER IN CONGRESS OR ON THE COURTS OR IN THINK TANKS.

EVIL MURDEROUS SCUM.

CHAVEZ IS NOW BALD

President Hugo Chavez will undergo a third round of chemotherapy for cancer at home in Venezuela beginning Sunday, he said, instead of traveling to Cuba where he had two previous rounds of treatment.

The 57-year-old gave few details during a TV appearance on Saturday, but the choice to have his next session at home could indicate he is more optimistic about the pace of his recovery ahead of a bid for a new six-year term at an election in 2012.

The socialist leader underwent surgery in Havana in June to remove a baseball-sized tumor, then returned to the communist-led island twice for chemotherapy as the guest of his friend and mentor, former Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

CHAVEZ IS BECOMING AS UGLY AS HIS POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY:







PEOPLE LIKE HIM CAN'T SUFFER ENOUGH.

HOW DO YOU SAY "MICHELLE OBAMA" IN YIDDISH?







(IT'S YIDDISH FOR UGLY SOURPUSS.)





HER HUSBAND IS A FELLA WHO BLAMES HIS MISFORTUNES ON BAD LUCK.



TOO BAD WE HAVE TO SUFFER AS A RESULT OF HIS "BAD LUCK".

ASSAD ATTACKS MOSQUE

Syrian security forces have attacked protesters at a mosque in the capital, Damascus, activists say.

Security officials stormed the al-Rifai mosque in the Kafar Susseh district, the activists said, reportedly wounding the mosque's imam.

Unconfirmed reports say at least one person was killed in clashes with troops on Saturday.

NO OUTRAGE EXPRESSED FROM THOSE WHO REGULARLY CASTIGATE ISRAEL FOR MUCH LESS.

WHY THE DISPARITY? IT'S THE ANTISEMITISM, STUPID!

THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY TREATS ISRAEL DIFFERENTLY FROM ALL OTHER NATIONS - AND NOT IN A GOOD WAY.

ISRAELIS ARE DERIDED FOR DOING WHAT EVERY OTHER NATIONS DOES, AND WHEN OTHER NATIONS DO WORSE THAN ANYTHING ISRAEL HAS EVER DONE, THEY GET AWAY SCOT FREE.

Muslim woman from Morrocco escapes arranged marriage and becomes martial arts fighter



Via Big Peace, here's a very inspiring story, about Iman Achhal, a woman from a Muslim family in Morrocco who was going to be sold into an arranged marriage - yes, for the money - and was lucky to flee to the USA where she first worked in a firefighting department, and then became a fitness and martial arts instructor. An ideal career for plenty of women, in fact.



Update: here's an article about her on the Wash. Post too.

THE LEFT IS TROTTING OUT THE MEME THAT RICK PERRY IS DUMB.



OF COURSE HE ISN'T:

  • YOU CAN'T BECOME AN AIR FORCE CAPTAIN AND PILOT AND BE DUMB.
  • YOU CAN'T BECOME THE NUMBER ONE LEGISLATOR IN THE TEXAS LEGISLATURE AND BE DUMB.
  • YOU CAN'T BECOME THE AGRICULTURE COMMISSIONER OF TEXAS AND BE DUMB.
  • YOU CAN'T BECOME THE LONGEST SERVING GOVERNOR IN TEXAS HISTORY AND BE DUMB.
NEVER THE LESS, THE LEFT IS TROTTING OUT THIS MEME.



WHY? BECAUSE THEY ARE ELITISTS WHO THINK THEY ARE BETTER THAN NON-LEFTISTS.



ACTUALLY IQ IS NOT AS IMPORTANT FOR BEING A GREAT POTUS AS LEFTIST MIGHT THINK.



HERE'S WHY:



The problems that end up on the President's desk in the Oval Office are not intellectual problems.




Crises that are Presidential level crises don't involve math or physics or chemistry or biology or grammar.



The President of the United States of America doesn't have to be able to win Jeopardy, or finish the NY TIMES crossword puzzle in record time, or do a Sudoku puzzle faster than anyone in Congress or on the Supreme Court.



The president doesn't have to be a scholar at Constitutional law or a wizard at finance and accountancy.



The President doesn't even have to be an expert at reading from a teleprompter with seeming conviction the speeches crafted by others.



The President has to have good values, the courage to defend them and the charisma to instill them.




Churchill said, "Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees the others."



And courage doesn't flow from intellect; it comes from a deeper place: faith.



SO...



When judging a person for the presidency, I will not be looking at either her or his intellect - and certainly not the superficial trappings of intellect, like loquacity, or what schools they attended.



I will be examining them in a different light.



I will be measuring them by their past actions and decisions:



Did they do what was right in relation to our values - or did they do the politically easy expedient thing.



Did they withstand the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune - or did they retreat in blaming others or bad luck.



Did they seek refuge in American values and faith in their fellow Americans - or did they pander to foreigners, the international community, and transnational bureaucracies.



On this level, George W. Bush is already proven to be a vastly better President than Obama.



WHY!? HOW!?



SIMPLE:



Bush ordered The Surge; Obama opposed it; Bush was right and Obama wrong. Had Obama been President we would be living in a vastly different and more dangerous world as a result of that bad decision.



NEED MORE PROOF!? SIMPLE:



Obama has been President nearly 3 years and has made countless bad if not awful decisions, and we are living in a vastly more dangerous world as a result.



If we want our nation to improve and the world to improve then we need a president with better values than Obama.



Having one smarter with the same values won't make our nation or the world a better place.



I think Perry and Palin and Bachmann off the most on this level. They have courage and good values.



And Perry has the most governmental experience by far - having served as a legislator, bureaucrat and chief executive of a big state.



Perry will have the courage to do what is right and he has the experience to manipulate through the political swamps.



And he has the charisma to lead.



THAT'S WHY - AS OF NOW - I SUPPORT RICK PERRY FOR PRESIDENT.

AL QAEDA JIHADISTS ATTACK IN ALGERIA - 18 DEAD

That attack was claimed by the Islamist group Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), which is active in the region.

It was not clear how many of those killed in the latest attack were military. A hospital source told Reuters news agency 16 soldiers had been killed and two civilians.

Political violence has subsided since the 1990s when more than 150,000 were killed after the 1992 election, won by an Islamist party, was annulled.

But militant groups continue to carry out sporadic attacks.

THIS ATTACK WAS NOT BECAUSE OF BUSHCHENEYCHIMPY MCHALLIBURTON ISRAELI ZIONIST TEA-PARTY RACISTS.

UPDATE: WE SCOOPED MEMEORANDUM ON THIS.

ENDLESS WINTER: FOLKS STILL SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING OUT WEST!

There are few places in California where people can see snow year-round, let alone, ride or ski it. But this year, Lake Tahoe might be one of those places.



“I've never gone this late in the season,” said Joanna Dzierzawski, a South Lake Tahoe snowboarder. “There was plenty of snow up at the second patch and I'm pretty sure you could just keep finding more and more up higher.”



Last weekend, Dzierzawski and friends took a camping trip near Red Lakes out Highway 88 to catch some late season runs. What they found was a snowpack that has a chance at making into next winter. And conditions weren't too bad.



“The snow was definitely pretty hard in the morning,” Dzierzawski said. “But it softened up when the sun came out."



... One indicator of how much snow is left in the mountains is to gauge how much water is still flowing in local streams. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the flows from the Sierra are still far above average.



Thursday, Trout Creek was running at 320 percent of average, in a the “much above normal” class. On the West Shore, Blackwood Creek was at 235 percent of average. Through the first 21 days of August, the American River was running at more than 300 percent of average for that time of year, according to the Department of Water Resources.



“Either there was a lot of water coming out of the ground or we're just starting to see the snow at the highest elevations begin to melt,” said DWR engineer Steve Nemeth.



Pyramid Peak has snow covering about half of its north side. Just below, Lake Aloha is brimming at the top of its dam.



Around the lake, 17 of the Natural Resource Conservation Service's 24 working Tahoe region snow data collectors are
still showing some snow depth as of Thursday. Manual measurements of the snowpack stopped in May and few automatic data collectors exist at the higher elevations in the region.



It is a possibility for snow to last year-round in the Sierra, though it's more likely in the Southern Sierra than the Tahoe region, Nemeth said. But by the looks of things up at “the Patch,” it might be a 365 day ski season.
IOW: AGW = TFBS.
