I assure you she's not serious.

The left has gotten a little fussy as of late, having recognized Hillary's "move" to the center:
Hillary Clinton has drawn a sharp rebuke from the left after giving a speech urging Democratic Party solidarity - a move seen by many as a sell-out of the party's liberal wing.

The senator from New York unexpectedly found herself under attack for her speech at the centrist Democratic Leadership Council's annual convention in Columbus, Ohio, in which she called for a truce among the party's quarreling factions, and for accepting the leadership of a DLC-sponsored effort to develop a new policy agenda for the party.

Democratic agent Harold Ickes has had to rush out to assure the left that she really doesn't mean it:
But supporters dismiss such criticism, saying her relationship with the DLC should not concern Democratic activists on the left. They say those on the far left should pay more attention to her voting record, which has earned her a near-perfect 95 percent approval score from the liberal Americans for Democratic Action.

"It's much more important to look at what she does and how she votes, and not that she has associated herself with the DLC," said Harold Ickes, who was deputy chief of staff in the Clinton White House and is now one of Mrs. Clinton's top campaign advisers.
Leave it to the left to miss the point of their Ice Queen's move to the middle: secure 'moderate' votes with centrist-soothing speeches she'll she'll be AWOL from when it comes time to follow through.

Read the following sign a couple different ways. When you land on the interpretation that describes the child, you've got yourself a description of the left's ability to interpret politics:

Egypt sent troops to Iraq?

They must have, what else would explain this:

SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (Reuters) - At least 83 people were killed and 200injured when car bombs ripped through shopping and hotel areas in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh on Saturday in the worst attack in Egypt since 1981.

Shaken European tourists spoke of mass panic and hysteria as people fled the carnage in the early hours, with bodies strewn across the roads, people screaming and sirens wailing.

The regional governor said two car bombs and possibly a suitcase bomb had rocked the resort, popular with divers and European holidaymakers, as well as diplomats who have convened world summits. Egypt has called it "the city of peace."

How totally appropriate that "the city of peace" was attacked by the religion with a propensity for the same.

Murdering Muslims in Egypt by way of bombing will make clear to anyone over the age of 6 and not a liberal that Iraq isn't the "why?" to the question of Islamowackos.

He or She Is The Wrong Man or Woman For The Court

Iowahawk has a habit of scooping international news organizations by getting his hands on very sensitive documents. The latest true non-fiction:

He or She Is The Wrong Man or Woman For The Court

Critical Urgent Community Action Bulletin from the Progressive Action Network For American Progress

For Immediate Release

The Progressive Action Network For American Progress is extremely concerned by today's news that President Bush has selected ___JOHN ROBERTS___ as his nominee for the vacancy on the United States Supreme Court. Unlike outgoing Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the widely respected and admired moderate consensus-building sensible mainstream compromisist, ___JOHN ROBERTS___ has a shocking record of extremely extreme fringe legal positions that fill us with grave concerns about ___HIS___ fitness for this critically crucial office.

Make no mistake: no one should be fooled by the administration's public relations efforts or ___JOHN ROBERTS___ 's seemingly "moderate" appearance. ___JOHN ROBERTS___ has a record that suggests that ___HE___ would deny women the right to reproductive choice, stop important life-saving medical stem cell research by extending the Patriot Act to draft their unwanted fetuses, and turn these conscripted fetuses over to dangerous tax-supported 'Creationist' religious indoctrination laboratories. The Supreme Court is a lifetime appointment, and America needs to know whether ___JOHN ROBERTS___ supports the GOP's secret plan of a Rush Limbaugh Jesus army of unwanted, unquestioning fetus zombies programmed to urinate on the Korans of Guantanamo detainees.

We should also point out that our opposition to ___JOHN ROBERTS___ has nothing to do with the nominee's race and/or gender. We at the Progressive Action Network For American Progress have long been on record of standing up for the civil rights of ___WHITE MEN___ , rights from which ___JOHN ROBERTS___ ironically, has benefitted. Sadly, rather than create programs and begin to work on the real problems that concern ___WHITE MEN___ , the Bush administration has cynically forwarded an unqualified, token candidate like ___JOHN ROBERTS___ to mask its callous indifference to the plight of the ___WHITE MAN___ community.


In response to this shocking nomination, we here at the Progressive Action Network
For American Progress are joining forces with other mainstream grassroots progressive activist organizations -- organizations like Peace Power Community
Now Network, Grant Proposers for Justice, NairBusters, Out of Our Wombs!,, ToothACHE, and Sitcom Producers for the American Way. Over the next few weeks we will be encouraging the Senate Judiciary Committee to take a close look at ___JOHN ROBERTS___ and ___HIS___ extremist views on the
critical legal issues that face all of us. While we will be working hard to get out the word in Washington, ordinary progressive citizens like you can do your part as well. First, write your newspaper and/or Senator and let them know that you will not stand by idly while Bush and Company install a pseudo-" ___WHITE MAN___" like ___JOHN ROBERTS___ on the nation's highest court. Here's a letter to get you started...

The Democrat's new obsession.

Via Hugh Hewitt, meet the Democrat's new obsession.

At least they shaved their legs.

Slightly less important than what crime Karl Rove didn't commit, comes this:

CHICAGO (AP) - There's a flip-flop controversy at the White House, and this one has nothing to do with President Bush and John Kerry.

A photo of Northwestern University's national championship women's lacrosse team, taken during the athletes' visit to the White House last week, shows four of the nine women in the front row wearing flip-flop sandals along with their dresses and skirts.

The choice of footwear has prompted a mini-controversy — a flip-flop flap, if you will.

A front-page story in the Chicago Tribune included the headline "YOU WORE FLIP-FLOPS TO THE WHITE HOUSE?!" inspired by an e-mail sent to player Kate Darmody from her older brother after he saw the photo on the team's Web site.

Family members of other players expressed similar dismay, insisting the summer footwear staple was too casual for a visit with the president.

"Don't even ask me about the flip-flops," said the mother of player Aly Josephs. "It mortified me."

The women have defended their attire, arguing they wore a dressier version of the casual sandal.

"Nobody was wearing old beach flip-flops," said Josephs, who wore a $16 brown pair with rhinestones.

High, not so mighty.

From the BBC:
The Sat-1 channel sent reporters to take 46 swabs from toilets and other public areas of the Brussels buildings. Nearly all tested positive for cocaine.

A European Parliament spokeswoman said cocaine abuse was not a problem among staff working at the buildings.

A professor who analysed the samples said the amounts found were too great to have been carried in on clothing.

"It simply reflects the fact that cocaine was brought in there," Professor Fritz Sorgel of the Institute for Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Research in Nuremberg (IBMP) told the BBC News website.

"The amount was too high and found in too many spots. It shows it was brought in deliberately."

The broadcaster conducted the same experiment in the German parliament with similar results five years ago.

We're breeding something alright.

From the Washington Post:
Osama bin Laden's standing has dropped significantly in some key Muslim countries, while support for suicide bombings and other acts of violence has "declined dramatically," according to a new survey released today.

In a striking finding, predominantly Muslim populations in a sampling of six North African, Middle East and Asian countries also shared to "a considerable degree" Western nations' concerns about Islamic extremism, the survey found. Many in those Muslim nations see it as threat to their own country, the poll found.

"Most Muslim publics are expressing less support for terrorism than in the past. Confidence in Osama bin Laden has declined markedly in some countries, and fewer believe suicide bombings that target civilians are justified in the defense of Islam," concluded the Pew Global Attitudes Project.

Compared with previous surveys, the new poll also found growing majorities or pluralities of Muslims surveyed now say democracy can work in their countries and is not just a political system for the West. Support for democracy was in the 80 percent range in Indonesia, Jordan, Lebanon and Morocco; in Pakistan and Turkey, where significant numbers of respondents were unsure, it rated 43 percent and 48 percent respectively.
The world likes winners. bin Laden v. America under presidents prior to Bush II had Muslims of the world taking odds on America and submitting to then's reality that their prospects for democracy were dim.

With freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan learning the left, left, left right left, and seeing their neighbors enjoying a democracy evolve from decades of despair, former reluctant bin Laden followers are betting on the will of the US over the will and ability of bin Laden to weather a hundred thousand US soldiers.

A Muslim march against terror... in Iraq.

I've been lightly posting because I've been scouring the internet for the latest Muslim demonstration against the terrorists who are killing in the name of Islam. I don't mind quasi-apologies, but I prefer they come from organization who haven't had a half-dozen of their members, especially their founder, sentenced to jail for aiding Islamic world terror.

Today, lo and behold, Blackfive reports on a march against Islamic terrorism. Thousands of people showed up with signs, banners and enthusiasm. In what democratic city did this happen? Qayarrah, as in Iraq. Story and photos.

After a terrorist attack, US Muslims can only muster a press release and artificially worry about "reprisals." In Iraq, Muslims are willing make themselves a huge target by demonstrating in huge numbers (how's that for defiance) to protest against the terror that targets their children.

Iraqi's have only had it for a short time, but already they're quite accomplished at exercising freedom. Muslims in the US could take notes.

Michelle Malkin has more.

Government-funded youth jihad centers.

From Michelle Malkin via the Globe:
LEEDS -- The transformation of four young British men into terrorists appears to have taken place at a government-funded storefront youth centre in Leeds that, according to youth workers, was a hub of radical Islamist activity.

The centre was sealed off and searched by police yesterday after three of its workers said in an interview on the street outside that at least two of the suicide bombers had been "very regular" visitors at all hours to the Hamara Youth Access Point, and a third had been seen there occasionally.

"It had become so radical and so hateful that I asked if I could stop working there," said one of the workers, who along with two others described the storefront drop-in centre as a hub of radical Muslim politics and a hotbed of Islamic organizing, routinely hosting mysterious figures to speak about extremist politics.
Should we then be worried about this, this or these?

Did the military consult Marv Albert?

Years ago, a certain sports announcer proved that getting caught wearing women's undergarments has the magical ability to make you spill the beans. Fortunately for us, the US military knows this.

From the Scotsman:
UNITED States interrogators at Guantanamo Bay subjected a suspected terrorist to abusive and degrading treatment, forcing him to wear a bra, dance with another man and behave like a dog, military investigators said yesterday.

The committee heard that interrogators told him his mother and sisters were prostitutes, forced him to wear a bra, forced him to wear a thong on his head, told him he was homosexual and said that other prisoners knew it.

They could be anybody.

Even teachers.

All you need to know about Rove's involvement.

From WSJ Online. Printed in it's entirety as WSJ requires subscription.

Democrats and most of the Beltway press corps are baying for Karl Rove's
head over his role in exposing a case of CIA nepotism involving Joe Wilson and
his wife, Valerie Plame. On the contrary, we'd say the White House political
guru deserves a prize--perhaps the next iteration of the "Truth-Telling" award
that The Nation magazine bestowed upon Mr. Wilson before the Senate Intelligence
Committee exposed him as a fraud.

For Mr. Rove is turning out to be the real "whistleblower" in this whole sorry pseudo-scandal. He's the one who warned Time's Matthew Cooper and other reporters to be wary of Mr. Wilson's credibility. He's the one who told the press the truth that Mr. Wilson had been recommended for the CIA consulting gig by his wife, not by Vice President Dick Cheney as Mr. Wilson was asserting on the airwaves. In short, Mr. Rove provided important background so Americans could understand that Mr. Wilson wasn't a whistleblower but was a partisan trying to discredit the Iraq War in an election campaign. Thank you, Mr. Rove.

Media chants aside, there's no evidence that Mr. Rove broke any laws in telling reporters that Ms. Plame may have played a role in her husband's selection for a 2002 mission to investigate reports that Iraq was seeking uranium ore in Niger. To be prosecuted under the 1982 Intelligence Identities Protection Act, Mr. Rove would had to have deliberately and maliciously exposed Ms. Plame knowing that she was an undercover agent and using information he'd obtained in an official capacity. But it appears Mr. Rove didn't even know Ms. Plame's name and had only heard about her work at Langley from other journalists.

On the "no underlying crime" point, moreover, no less than the New York Times and Washington Post now agree. So do the 36 major news organizations that filed a legal brief in March aimed at keeping Mr. Cooper and the New York Times's Judith Miller out of jail. "While an investigation of the leak was justified, it is far from clear--at least on the public record--that a crime took place," the Post noted the other day. Granted the media have come a bit late to this understanding, and then only to protect their own, but the logic of their argument is that Mr. Rove did nothing wrong either.

The same can't be said for Mr. Wilson, who first "outed" himself as a CIA consultant in a melodramatic New York Times op-ed in July 2003. At the time he claimed to have thoroughly debunked the Iraq-Niger yellowcake uranium connection that President Bush had mentioned in his now famous "16 words" on the subject in that year's State of the Union address.

Mr. Wilson also vehemently denied it when columnist Robert Novak first reported that his wife had played a role in selecting him for the Niger mission. He promptly signed up as adviser to the Kerry campaign and was feted almost everywhere in the media, including repeat appearances on NBC's "Meet the Press" and a photo spread (with Valerie) in Vanity Fair.

But his day in the political sun was short-lived. The bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report last July cited the note that Ms. Plame had sent recommending her husband for the Niger mission. "Interviews and documents provided to the Committee indicate that his wife, a CPD [Counterproliferation Division] employee, suggested his name for the trip," said the report. The same bipartisan report also pointed out that the forged documents Mr. Wilson claimed to have discredited hadn't even entered intelligence channels until eight months after his trip. And it said the CIA interpreted the information he provided in his debrief as mildly supportive of the suspicion that Iraq had been seeking uranium in Niger.

About the same time, another inquiry headed by Britain's Lord Butler delivered its own verdict on the 16 words: "We conclude also that the statement in President Bush's State of the Union Address of 28 January 2003 that 'The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa' was well-founded."

In short, Joe Wilson hadn't told the truth about what he'd discovered in Africa, how he'd discovered it, what he'd told the CIA about it, or even why he was sent on the mission. The media and the Kerry campaign promptly abandoned him, though the former never did give as much prominence to his debunking as they did to his original accusations. But if anyone can remember another public figure so entirely and thoroughly discredited, let us know.

If there's any scandal at all here, it is that this entire episode has been allowed to waste so much government time and media attention, not to mention inspire a
"special counsel" probe. The Bush Administration is also guilty on this count,
since it went along with the appointment of prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald in an
election year in order to punt the issue down the road. But now Mr. Fitzgerald
has become an unguided missile, holding reporters in contempt for not disclosing
their sources even as it becomes clearer all the time that no underlying crime
was at issue.

As for the press corps, rather than calling for Mr. Rove to be fired, they ought to be grateful to him for telling the truth.

Ordinary Day

Read it.

Is it starting?

From the Guardian:

A Muslim man has been beaten to death outside a corner shop by a gang of youths who shouted anti-Islamic abuse at him, the Guardian has learned.

Kamal Raza Butt, 48, from Pakistan, was visiting Britain to see friends and family. On Sunday afternoon he went to a shop in Nottingham to buy cigarettes and was first called "Taliban" by the youths and then set upon.

Nottinghamshire police described the incident as racially aggravated, not as Islamophobic, angering Muslim groups and surprising some senior officers.

They say it was not connected to a backlash against Muslims following the London bombings, which has seen mosques firebombed and Muslims attacked in the street.

Bobbies in the UK can read minds?

On Monday the case was discussed at the Muslim Safety Forum, where senior police officers and Muslim community representatives meet. Senior sources who were at the meeting last night said it was the view of all present that the killing was a hate crime triggered by his faith.

How did the kids know he wasn't Christian, Jewish or an Atheist?

Muslim leaders last night said the killing and the fact that it was Islamophobic would heighten anxiety in their communities, which was already high before the London bombings and which has deepened with every report of attacks.

The man was punched and fell to the ground and later died in hospital. Police have yet to officially announce the results of a postmortem examination. Azad Ali, who chairs the Muslim Safety Forum, said: "You can't class this as racist, there was no racist abuse shouted at him, it was Islamophobic. "It is good the police have made arrests. We are disappointed that they have misclassified it, especially after all the advice to be more alert to Islamophobic hate crime."

Speaking of 'misclassified," the BBC is having trouble pronouncing "terrorist" when referring to the Islamo's who murdered their countrymen on Thursday. When the Beeb says "terrorist," it sounds an awful lot like "bomber." Here's why:
The BBC has re-edited some of its coverage of the London Underground and
bus bombings to avoid labelling the perpetrators as "terrorists", it was
disclosed yesterday.

Early reporting of the attacks on the BBC's website spoke
of terrorists but the same coverage was changed to describe the attackers simply
as "bombers".

The BBC's guidelines state that its credibility is undermined by the
"careless use of words which carry emotional or value judgments".

Consequently, "the word 'terrorist' itself can be a barrier rather than
an aid to understanding" and its use should be "avoided", the guidelines

In the UK, Muslim extremists have to murder more than 50 people before they can be called "terrorists."

And it wasn't because his country was in Iraq.

Dutch filmmaker Theo VanGogh was stabbed repeatedly in the streets of Amersterdam and his dead body was then shot multiple times. A note was left on his body by his Muslim murder. What did Mr. VanGogh perpetrate against the Muslim people to justify his butchering?

Did Mr. VanGogh's country make war on a Muslim country? No. Did Mr. VanGogh desecrate a Koran by giving it an evil stare? No. Did Mr. VanGogh bomb a mosque? No.

He made a film about the harsh conditions women have to endure for the crime of being born into Islam. Subserience, honor killings, torture. For telling the truth about Islam, a moderate member of the faith sliced him up in public at a time of day usually associated with sunning yourself.

Mr. VanGogh's killer was in court today. Here's the Muslim version of remorse:

The man accused of killing Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh confessed to a
Dutch court that he acted out of his religious beliefs, saying he would do
"exactly the same" if he were ever set free.

"I take complete responsibility for my actions. I acted purely in
the name of my religion
," 27-year-old Dutch-Moroccan national Mohammed
Bouyeri told the court in Amsterdam on the final day of his trial.

"I have to admit I do not feel for you, I do not feel your pain, I
cannot -- I don't know what it is like to lose a child," he said as Van Gogh's
family and friends looked on.

"I cannot feel for you ... because I believe you are an
," he added.

"I acted out of conviction -- not because I hated your

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. This simply cannot be. Everyone knows Muslims murder because America is evil, not because they have convictions based on the text of their religious book. His broken Dutch must have confused translators.

Are people really this thoughtful?

This story from Michael Yon can't possibly be true.

Not only is it about positive things happening in Iraq, it wasn't reported by the New York Times, LA Times or Washington Post, all of which are my barometers for assessing accuracy and likelihood.

Dear al-Qaeda:

You will not win. Allow me to repeat. You will not win.

You will not make me feel guilty for standing against you on a day that you kill friends I've never met in Britain. You've proven Britain's incomparable value in the war against you and you've cemented their resolve in your attack today. Your statement has confirmed that Iraq and Afghanistan are equally important theatres in defeating militant Islam and that our efforts have been met with tremendous success. Your desperation is evident and it brings me great pride.

Your comrades on the Left will surely use your artificial Iraq/Afghanistan excuse in an attempt to discredit our winning campaign against you, but they will not be succeed. They will not shame me for standing up to you. They will not make me feel guilty that your tentacles flail while we have our sqeezing hands firmly planted around your throat. They will not make me feel guilty that some of your bombs explode while we bury you in droves and scare you into the shadows. The remaining life you have is fleeting.

Anyone not on the Left understands there isn't a violation the US or Britain has ever perpetrated that justifies flying civilian planes into civilian buildings and your claims to the contrary prove your futility. We see through your false justification because there is no justification for the barbarism of exploding bombs on busses and trains. There is no justification for decapitation of humanitarian workers. There is no justification for destroying life in Britain, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, Australia or America.

We understand you and the real reasons you want us dead. Among them:

We allow women to drive cars. We listen to music. We don't flog people for committing adultery. We don't amputate hands of thieves. We don't kill in the name of a god. We don't stone our sisters or wives to death if they've been raped and we don't pour acid on them while they sleep if they've been seen talking with a man. We don't grow our beards just to try to feel masculine. We don't wipe our ass with our hand. We haven't been fooled by a little book that tells us Muhammad was more than a pedofile who advocated violence.

You will never conquer this world and we will never submit to you. We didn't ask for this fight, but Britain and America are lead by men very willing and extremely capable of fighting it.

Victory will never be yours to claim. Ever.

The Peaceful Religion strikes in London

This statement from the peaceful followers of the imaginary god Allah and his inbred prophet Muhammad tells you everything you need to know about the importance of the war in Iraq:

In the name of God, the merciful, the compassionate, may peace be upon the cheerful one and undaunted fighter, Prophet Muhammad, God's peace be upon him.

Nation of Islam and Arab nation: Rejoice for it is time to take revenge against the British Zionist Crusader government in retaliation for the massacres Britain is committing in Iraq and Afghanistan. The heroic mujahideen have carried out a blessed raid in London. Britain is now burning with fear, terror and panic in its northern, southern, eastern, and western quarters.

We have repeatedly warned the British Government and people. We have fulfilled our promise and carried out our blessed military raid in Britain after our mujahideen exerted strenuous efforts over a long period of time to ensure the success of the raid.
We continue to warn the governments of Denmark and Italy and all the Crusader governments that they will be punished in the same way if they do not withdraw their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan. He who warns is excused.

God says: "You who believe: If ye will aid (the cause of) Allah, He will aid you, and plant your feet firmly."

Message: Iraq is just as important in the war on terror as Afghanistan. The coalition is having enough success that it warranted a bombing in an attempt to shake Britain's resolve. Like Spain, if you withdraw in fear, you will be spared.

The Liberal approach to other jobs.

During hostilities, US soldiers are employed to conduct and win at war. That's their job. Liberals try to get in the way with their "I support the troops, bring them home now" method of quitting and the "I support the troops, not what they do" method of making excuses for not supporting the troops.

What if we applied that methodology to some of life's other jobs?

Liberal: We support the doctor, not operating on cancer.
Excuse: "I'm sorry Mr. Patient, but we're going have to suspend treatment. No, we haven't gotten totally rid of your tumor, but it's taking more time than we thought. Well, because it's bigger than we thought and we decided before we started that we'd give it a whirl for a couple months. No sir, there's no way that fighting cancer can get rid of it. Well, I know it appears that others have had success by fighting the cancer, but we'd prefer to believe the cancer would have gone away if we just left it alone. Any impression they beat cancer by fighting it is pure coincidence. Mr. Patient, I've seen people lose their fight with cancer. Trust me when I suggest we stop treatment now, I know how it'll end. What again would you like on your headstone?"

Law Enforcement
Liberal: We support the police officer, not if he makes arrests.
Liberal Excuse: "After years of 'fighting crime,' I'd like to direct your attention to the man over there stealing my car as evidence that we are losing the fight. Misunderstood perps are still robbing, stealing and killing, to say nothing about chronic speeders, so we've decided to scale back our policing efforts and suspend arrests. Crime rates have dropped while our jails continue to fill, a contradiction we can't understand and evidence that we aren't changing enough hearts and minds to warrant the resentment we encounter each day. We're people too and we have feelings. While we have all national new channels present, we thought it appropriate and constructive to announce the officers in the following cities will be re-assigned to non-patrol objectives at the following times: Los Angeles, 1.15pm on June 8th. Detroit, 12.39pm on June 9th. Minneapolis, 7.00pm today. We expect to have all officers out of all other cities in 6 months 2 weeks 4 days 1 hour and 18 minutes."

Fire Fighting
Liberal: We support the firefighters, not when he puts out fires.
Excuse: "Sir, we're going to have to turn off the water. I'm sorry, sir, but we got a late start on this baby and it'll be a little more difficult to extinguish than we thought. No, no, we have plenty of water, it's just that I don't exactly see how putting out your fire directly benefits me. Besides, that fire really doesn't exist. Anyone's evidence to the contrary is a lie based on their inner hostility towards combustibles. We need to understand fire in order to live side by side to it. Besides, you're the one who's arranged your home in such as way as to provoke a fire. You invited the fire by building your house out of wood. All we can do at this point is just sit back and watch. Pass me a tong and a marshmallow."

What does the capture of 5 Americans in Iraq mean?

Michelle Malkin mentions the 5 Americans detained in Iraq for "being engaged in suspicious activities", having knowledge of terror activities and possible involvement in kidnapping.

What does this mean?

Thankfully, it means that Iraq has become a magnet for terrorists. It means that Iraq is indeed the center of the Global War On (Islamic) Terror. It means that a Texas cowboy is smarter than college professors, Senate Democrats, newspaper editors and professional war protesters combined.

It means that service to Allah trumps service in the United States Navy. It means that terrorists see more to be gained by making bombs in Mosul than blowing up shopping malls in Malibu. It means that the war in Iraq is as important as the Democrats say it isn't. It means that if naturalized Americans with jihadi tendencies will go through the trouble of constructing a cover, fly a few thousand miles to dodge bullets and bombs, then we did exactly the right thing by going to Iraq.

The stakes are high in Iraq. These 5 men prove it.

For them to abandon the safety and popularity of LA's "understanding and therapy" crowd for the dangerous endeavor of fighting the US military says all you need to know about whether or not this war was the right thing.

Another Question: In the UK, a man stabbed his wife 112 times for falling in love with another man. How many years did the judge sentence him to jail for each stab wound that resulted in her death?

Answer: .054 years per wound. Yeah, that's six years.

Counting the little things.

Will someone start offing convicted sex offenders, please?

Shasta and Dylan Groene were kidnapped 6 weeks ago from their mother's home, where her body and that of her boyfriend were found brutally bludgeoned to death.

On Saturday morning, I caught the live reports that Shasta Groene had been found. FOX News talked live to her grandmother who reported that Dylan had also been found when, sadly, he hadn't. The man Shasta was with is registered a level 3 sex offender in Minnesota.

Daily, people are disappearing, getting assaulted or being killed by animals who have already been convicted of violent sexual crimes. I'm even more incensed when the excrement caught for a violent crime is not only a registered sex offender, but an illegal alien registered sex offender.

Level 3 sex offenders, the most likely of the 3-tier slime family to re-offend, haven't been properly punished for their crimes, evidenced in their ability to breathe.

When will someone start disappearing them? Who will notice or care? Afterall, we know where many of them live and we know what they look like. Courtroom justice isn't cutting it. Street justice would be a much more compelling deterrent when repeat sex offenders start turning up lifeless. I wonder how long it will take for Americans to start taking the law into their own hands. I hope it happens soon.

What I did with my independence.

Posting has been light while I've been celebrating Sandra Day O'Connor's resignation. It's hard to type while doing backflips and cartwheels, especially when trying not to spill my wine.

I spent the last couple days in Kansas City. No, I didn't lose a bet. I went to the IRL, NASCAR Truck and ARCA races. Highlight: My brush with Danica Patrick just before she won the pole position at Kansas Speedway.

You won't hear from me again until Tuesday when I hope we'll all have sufficiently celebrated 229 years of independence...

Happy 4th of July, brought to you by people like this.
