Dems threaten Jewish nonprofits

Even more from the anti-iran debacle.
According to this post on Merryl's site the Dems threatened their tax-exempt status.

The groups sponsoring the rally against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaking at the UN were reportedly told, “it could jeopardize their tax exempt status” if they had Palin and not Clinton or Democratic VP candidate Joe Biden on hand.

More on anti-Iran Rally

Why am I putting more space to this issue? Because it is important. It shows the type of pettiness that is going to get a lot of people killed if we don't stop it and get together as americans.

This ia aquote from Sarah Pallin


"This should be an issue that unites all Americans. Iran should not be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons, period," Palin said. "Unfortunately, some Democrat partisans put politics first and now no elected official can appear. This should not be a matter of partisan politics."

Damn right.

And what do the wussies say in response. Well their publicist says

In order to keep the focus on Iranian threats and to ensure that this critical message not be obscured, the organizers of the rally have decided not to have any American political personalities appear

Funny they didn't have a problem when sen. clinton was going to appear.
Some of our worse enemies are those that are already here.

Yes this is part of the War

I am talking about the disgraceful disinvitation of Sarah Pallin to the anti-Ahmadinejad rally. These people are so politically paritsan they they would rather see the country go down the tubes than have Sarah do anti-thing that might save it.

Cute but true comment from the Volokh Conspiracy:


A reader comments: What's the difference between [Malcolm] Hoenlein [who invited Palin, and then disinvited her under pressure from Democratic activists] and Ahmadinejad?

Ahmadinejad isn't intimidated by the Democrats.

Lions and Terrorists

I was reading this piece written by Glenn and linked to in today's big blog when I got this insight that there is a lot in common with the people who would save the Cougars with those who would have us not kill terrorists both before and since 9/11.

Take this quote from the original article posted on 11/05/2003.

In the end, of course, people started to be eaten, and the bureaucracy woke up to a degree. There's lots of interesting stuff in Baron's book about ecological change, and the folly of seeking "wilderness" without recognizing humanity's role in nature, but to me the most interesting behavior isn't the predatory nature of the cougars -- which are, after all, predators -- but the willful ignorance of human beings. So many were so invested in the notion that by thinking peaceful thoughts they could will into existence a state of peaceful affairs that they ignored the evidence right in front of them, which tended to suggest that cougars were quite happy to eat anything that was juicy, delicious, and unlikely to fight back.

It is in the natures of bullies be they the local kind or the terrorist kind to be the way they are just as it is cougars to be cougars.

They are both a type of predator and there is no future in being nice to them just in dealing with them before they eat us

Chemical WMD

If anyone still wonders why we needed to go into Iraq and why we and everyone else in the world thought that Iraq had chemical weapons they should visit this site,

Warning not for the faint hearted.

What I really said

Paul Bremmer sets the record straight in this op-ed in the NY Times.


The press has been curiously reluctant to report my constant public support for the president's strategy in Iraq and his policies to fight terrorism. I have been involved in the war on terrorism for two decades, and in my view no world leader has better understood the stakes in this global war than President Bush.


He ends with this


A year and a half ago, President Bush asked me to come to the Oval Office to discuss my going to Iraq to head the coalition authority. He asked me bluntly, "Why would you want to leave private life and take on such a difficult, dangerous and probably thankless job?" Without hesitation, I answered, "Because I believe in your vision for Iraq and would be honored to help you make it a reality." Today America and the coalition are making steady progress toward that vision.

I don't get it

I can't understand how after 9/11 some people don't understand that what we need to do to terrorists is kill them.
Even after what happened in Russia there are people like this who seem to think that the choices are fuzzy.

Of course for everyone of those there are some who like the Acidman have no doubts.


You don't negotiate with such people. You kill them

Never Forget

We should never forget what happened on Sept. 11, 2001.
On that day every year for some years to come we should be reminded but that is not what the networks have in store for us.
Read Rachel's fine rant and Emperor Misha's also.
Unlike Rachel I was not smart enough to turn on my VCR or maybe I was just too much in shock.
I did buy this DVD of the Tribute to Heros which I will probably listen to and maybe this one too of the Concert for New York City.
In addition I will be posting some of the pictures I took last May of the WTC site.

Hamas is not a Terror Group

Not much I care to say about this. Read about it on Lair's site.
I am too speechless to be coherent about this.

Things you don't hear on the US Media

Six Die in Afghan fighting. Four of the six however were Taliban with the other two being Afghan soldiers.


11 Killed in Kashmir violence. Of these eight were Mujahideen, who the Paks still refer to as freedom fighters, unfortunately.


There are more like these if you look but there are two points I want to make.
First this war we are engaged in is a global war make no mistake. We may lose soldiers but there are soldiers dying in this war in India, Afghanistan, Indonesia and other places.
Second we have been pretty lucky so far. This may not last but we must not falter. Only by wining the war against terrorism will we ever be safe.

Hitting Hamas in the Wallet

A Hamas Leader called Bush Islam's Biggest Enemy after he ordered the bank accounts of several Hamas leaders and front organizations frozen.
This is very good.
If they are complaining it shows that we are hitting them where it hurts. Now if our "friends" in the EU will go along and do the same we can start making some progress again in the War on Terror.

Will the blast at the UN change anything?

Some people are saying that today's blast at the UN office in Baghdad was a miscalculation that will change a lot of things. I am not so sure.
Most of the UN folk are deep into denial or in bed with the terrorists.
I don't look for much to change.
I hope I am wrong on this one.

Last chance for Peace gone in Mid East

There was a theory I heard not too long ago that part of what was going on in the mid-east was that Bush was basically giving the Palestinians one last chance to get their act together.
After today's terrorist bus attack they may have lost that chance.
Abbas was supposed to do something about Hamas and he has done nothing.
The Israeli's may do it for him after this.

Strange Headlines

These are some excerpts from an article headlined Returning Marines critical of Iraq plan.


'Thank you's' the company heard proved to them the war President Bush sold as a quest to destroy weapons of mass destruction was good because it ousted a cruel and ruthless dictator.

Masterson recalled getting thanks even from an Iraqi who believed his wife and child had been killed by an American shelling -- so-called ''collateral damage'' in the march to Baghdad. He also heard it from a man who said his daughter had been raped and murdered by men loyal to Saddam Hussein.

'You were sitting there thinking, 'Wow, I am really doing something important. I am part of a grand scheme to do something good,' McGee said.


There were some critical comments too but the body of the article was a lot more balanced then the headline suggests.


Mostly they were just glad to be home and who can blame them for that.

More men in Iraq?
I keep hearing this refrain from the would be presidents (Joe from Conn. said it today) and others but it seems to me that we would just be suppling more targets.
What they really should have is 24/7 predators over all US troop bases and convoys. I wonder why this is not the case.

More on Dead reporter in Iran
Now finally after myself and other bloggers have made postings on it (the latest being Liar) the mainstream press is finally getting around to it. MSNBC reports that Khatami is ordering a probe into it. Didn't this guy just offer to resign? Can anyone guess how far this is going to go?

Reporter Dead in Iran I

Reporter Dead in Iran
I related in this link, how a female Canadian reporter was arrested and beaten for taking pictures outside of an Iranian prison. Now Fox News and Susanna are reported that she has been declared brain dead. It seems she was beaten to death by the Iranians. What I can't understand is where is the outrage from the news media that usually follows the death of a reporter? All the networks should be all over this the way they were with Danny Pearl. If the major media does not pickup this story and run with it they are a disgrace.

Saddam and bin Laden
LGF points to this article about links between the two that others have been saying don't exist. The original link was from Glenn who says:


Read the whole thing. Those who know Judge Merritt -- a lifelong Democrat and a man of unimpeachable integrity -- will know just how significant this is.

Sounds like some people should be apologizing to President Bush but don't hold your breath for that.
