Jack, my regular commenter, my blog-brother at Conservative Insurgent, my friend, sent me a link the other day that so enraged me that I could not even post on it until I had calmed down. The email arrived early Saturday. It is now almost 2am on Sunday. Do the math.

The email was as follows:

Lila, I know just what a hot button child abuse is with you, I have posted about another pediphile caught in Washington and extradited to San Jose, Calif. Here is an animal, no "Sub Human Scum animals don't do this", that doesn't even warrant exposure in the MSM. Like I stated on my post maybe California just wants to release him there, where he is better protected. Or. Maybe he's going to work the day shift at Neverland. Jack
Well, unsuspecting me (yeah, right bullshit on the unsuspecting part) clicked that link and experienced what Kim du Toit commonly calls an "RCOB Moment" that turned into a day of outrage. Let me just quote you a part of the article.
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Chilling, handwritten lists of more than 36,000 suspected sex acts with boys has led investigators to what may be the most extensive case of child molestation in U.S. history.

The lists, written in loopy cursive on 1,360 pages in seven multicolored, spiral-bound notebooks, have names and apparent codes for various sex acts, according to San Jose police. They were found last month in the San Jose home of convicted child molester Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller, 63, who is now in jail on felony molestation charges involving two local 12-year-old boys.

"If any of these numbers are even close to accurate, then it is one of the most significant child molestation finds that we have ever encountered," said San Jose Police Lt. Scott Cornfield, who called the case "horrendous."

This monster victimized hundreds of young boys, potentially thousands, many after a 1978 conviction. He has remained free, in the community, unreported under sex offender registration laws, and preying on children all of this time. A repeat offender, he is wanted in several jurisdictions. His room mate is also a child molester. He had a huge server in his house and they have no idea what is on it.

And I guarentee you he's in protective lockup. My question is why? Why not just turn him loose in the general population and have done to him what he did to Real Innocents? Let Buster and Leroy share him as their bitchboy until trial. Let it be so bad that sack of excrement needs a Depends™ to keep from soiling the nice suit his lawyer will get him for trial. Let it be so unrelenting that when he passes gas no sound announces it.

Eye for an eye? No, generally I'm not that way. But this cowardly user of children deserves whatever "Hard Time" comes his way, regardless of his eventual verdict in court.

Think about it. 36,000 documented sex acts with children in his own handwriting. That's over twice the population of my dad's home town up in Maine. That's more acts than there are seats at Conseco Fieldhouse here in Indianapolis. If you had sex once every day, it would take you almost 100 yrs to reach that number. 36,000 documented sex acts. With Children.

There's a lawyer, probably in the pocket of NAMBLA, who is chomping at the bit to take that case. There are stupid people on the voter rolls who will get their jury duty cards in the mail for that case who will think nothing of letting this pustule back into an unsuspecting neighborhood. There's a judge who will disallow vital evidence over some technicality or perception of Civil Liberties.

And in the meantime, the police have no way of even knowing who all of these children are, because this monster only tracked first names. Where is the justice for these children? He's been tracking his evil for over 30 yrs, and he likes them young. These kids are now potentially in their 40's, if they're even still alive.

I sincerely hope that some of them, regardless of the pain that must be involved, come forward and bring forth their experiences to help take this animal off the streets forever.

And this, my friends, is why the Death Penalty should apply to more than Murder. Because deep down, in your hearts and in the back of your mind you know that what this thing did was commit murder, the murder of innocence, each time he exploited a child. He deserves nothing less than the gurney and the needle. Nothing less.

Jack and the UN

Here's an interesting take on the UN, my personal belief is to get out of the UN, they never have been our ally and this article pretty much reiterates that fact. Taxpayers beware.

The U.N. should never forget that after World War II, the United States could have made the world its taxpayer, but instead... chose to tax its own citizens to help friends and former foes rebuild their cities...

The U.S. and The U.N.: The End of a BadRomance

Sept. 9, 2004
By Bruce Herschensohn

It should be understood that from the beginning she wasn’t faithful and had no intention of being faithful. After the United States of America and its World War II allies created the United Nations Organization, the United States fell in love with her. He thought the two of them had a lot in common. But the United Nations Organization, dressed in apparel given her by the United States and wearing jewelry given her by the United States, spent many New York nights of romance with enemies of the United States. And so it went for 59 years of hand-holding beneath the moonlight and stars on the East River near the magnificent home that John D. Rockefeller of the United States had given her.

She was having exactly the style of life she wanted. She was having fun, and at the same time she wanted enough affection retained between her and the United States so that the United States would give her what she wanted. Her long-range plan was to eventually make the United States a "fair and equal" Third World Country while current Third World Countries would then inherit a world leadership position. There would be no rich and poor countries. They would all be poor.

That gleam in her eye called for an outrageous percent of the U.N.’s budget paid by the United States which the United States had already agreed to pay, plus the grandest scheme of all: a "global tax" to go to the U.N. from citizens of the United States and other industrial countries. That tax, collected each year by the U.N. would then be redistributed to less industrial countries of the world — with a nice administrative budget for her colleagues working in her 39 story mansion.

As absurd as all this may seem, there is more truth than fiction in the summary above.

The first I heard about such a U.N. tax was in the early 1960s when U Thant was the U.N.’s Secretary General. Like most others, I laughed it off because such a tax was so absurd that it seemed to be one of those subjects that was dead before it lived, advocated only by the most radical and anti-U.S. bureaucrats of the U.N.

The subject was not dead. The subject was just in hibernation. It kept waking up every September when there was a new session of the U.N. Each time it woke up, it seemed to gather more support.

The next Secretary General, Kurt Waldheim put the subject on the calendar. Early in his reign in 1972, both the U.N. Conference on the Human Environment and the Club of Rome advocated a tax on industrialized countries. (The Club of Rome is a global think tank that has had great influence on the U.N., often asked by the U.N. to supply studies and advice. It is composed of scientists, economists, former heads of state and others. In 1972, it warned that the world would run out of gold by 1981, mercury by 1985, tin by 1987, zinc by 1990, petroleum by 1992, and copper, lead and natural gas by 1993.)

The 1980’s saw Secretary General Javier Perez de Cuellar propose the establishment of a U.N. Peace Endowment Fund with an initial target of one billion dollars, not only from voluntary funds but from assessed contributions as well.

Following Javier Perez de Cuellar as Secretary General in 1992 was Boutros Boutros-Ghali, who made the subject of a tax more prominent than ever before. He proposed a tax on arms sales throughout the world, a tax on international travel, and a general tax exemption for contributions made to the U.N. by foundations, businesses and individuals. He said, "The question of assuring financial security to the Organization over the long term is of such importance and complexity that public awareness and support must be heightened."

Although Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali spoke and wrote highly of the sovereignty of the State, he added in his article, "An Agenda for Peace," that "The time of absolute and exclusive sovereignty, however, has passed; its theory was never matched by reality. It is the task of leaders of States today to understand this and to find a balance between the needs of good internal governance and the requirements of an ever more interdependent world." At the time, there was such enthusiasm for a tax that there was serious argument over whether industrialized nations such as the United States should simply be taxed as nations or citizens of the selected nations should be taxed directly by the United Nations Organization.

The first years of the 21st Century have seen the most serious threat of what is now called a "global tax" to be administered by the United Nations Organization. Secretary General Kofi Annan wrote a paper in which he itemized proposals for global taxation, including a "bit tax" on the volume of data transmitted through the Internet. Secretary General Annan noted that at one U.S. cent on every 1,000 kilobytes of data, that tax "would have generated $70 billion U.S. dollars."

Expanding on a Bhoutros Bhoutros-Ghali idea, Kofi Annan argued for an international air transport tax since "experts recognize air transport of passengers and cargo as a key source of environmental pollution due to emissions and noise."

Other proposals of the Secretary General duplicated old proposals of Bhoutros Bhoutros-Ghali and some new ones: taxation of arms exports from one country to another, a carbon tax which could "contribute to a global public good, namely the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions." Kofi Annan noted that "a gallon of gasoline or a ton of coal cannot be readily disguised." Another proposal is for a currency transaction fee calling for taxation of foreign exchange markets "probably collected at the point of payment or settlement in the banking systems."

The Global Policy Forum, a tax-exempt organization that has consultative status and advises on financial matters for the United Nations, added other proposals for "the changing role of states and sovereignty." It stated, "The international community cannot allow the United States government to hold the world hostage and block vitally important progress. Like-minded governments and citizen groups must advance together towards the goal of global taxes." Proposals noted by the Global Policy Forum include a fee for the use of radio/television/mobile phones and other items within the electronic spectrum, a tax on the profits of transnational corporations, a tax on international advertising, and a "parking fee" for earth-orbiting satellites (although Kofi Annan said "the satellite use of outer space would not generate significant revenue at any reasonable tax rate.")

In 2002, Secretary General Kofi Annan appointed a "U.N. High Level Panel on Financing for Development." Its Executive Summary stated that "the Panel proposes that the international community should consider the potential benefits of an International Tax Organization."

Throughout all the proposals are three consistent objectives: to redistribute wealth from rich to poor countries, to influence policy by increasing the cost to consumers of products and services the U.N. opposes, and to inaugurate a new avenue for income to the United Nations Organization.

The implications are, of course, tremendous to the United States, There is the obvious damage to U.S. sovereignty and its place in the world, and there is something else: even if the tax is well-spent by the U.N., (which the U.N.’s history tells us is outrageously unlikely) such taxation would take away the ability to do those things the United States has done through voluntary actions and turn them into mandatory obedience. The U.N. should never forget that after World War II, the United States could have made the world its taxpayer, but instead the United States chose to tax its own citizens to help friends and former foes rebuild their cities, as well as finance governments that fought against us to construct the foundations of democracy. Foreign aid from the United States has never stopped in the years since then through the U.S. Government and through considerable private charitable contributions.

No one should assume a global tax is far-fetched. Unsurprisingly, French President Jacques Chirac said, "We cannot avoid setting up a system of international taxation."

The Global Policy Forum wrote, "As recently as the 1990s, global taxes seemed a distant hope — bedeviled by technical concerns, opposed by powerful interests and blocked by an intractable United States government. But today the political balance has shifted."

Some moonlit night near the end of 2004, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., John Danforth, should go to the great mansion on the East River with the mission of telling her, "Sorry, Sweetheart. I just came by to tell you to gather your things."

I know, I know. Ending a bad relationship is tough.

Great job all.
Bloggers have made a dent in the biased Main Stream Media and they're aware of it.
they'll be on the attack now.

Posted on Sun, Sep. 12, 2004

EDITORIAL: New century finds a new journalism

If you're a media buff - and who isn't, in America in 2004? - then circle Thursday, Sept. 9, on your mental calendar. Because that's the day weblogs came into their own.

And politics and journalism never will be the same.

What happened Thursday is that webloggers or "bloggers" latched on to a controversial "60 Minutes"/CBS News story - and then worked the thing, with a stubbornness and tenacity that would have done credit to a pack of bulldogs or a turn of snapping turtles - or, yes, an army of investigative reporters.

As a result, CBS was forced to respond within a single news cycle. And although the network eventually stood by its story, more holes are showing up in the thing almost by the hour, and there's a fair chance the network will have to retract.

This may have been the first time a TV network was forced to respond so quickly to an Internet critique. But it won't be the last time for America's networks, newspapers or other institutions, because bloggers now are responding to events not as opinion writers but as fact-checkers and skilled reporters.

Here's the short form of what happened. Wednesday night: CBS's "60 Minutes" program broadcast a powerful and damaging report about President Bush. A young George W. Bush pulled strings not only to get into the Texas Air National Guard but also to be eased out without fulfilling his obligations, the report claimed.

And among other things, it cited a handful of newly uncovered documents as proof.

That's when the bloggers - especially conservative bloggers - chomped down. CBS posted copies of the incriminating documents online. But within hours, a poster named Buckhead at www.freerepublic.com saw that the documents looked more like the product of 2004 word processing than a 1972 typewriter.

Power Line, a Twin Cities-based weblog - it's at www.powerlineblog.com and is well worth reading, especially if you're new to the weblog phenomenon - posted Buckhead's comments. Then, in a clattering crescendo of keystrokes, the issue exploded in cyberspace. Soon www.indcjournal.com had interviewed a "forensic document" specialist who agreed the documents likely were fakes. Then www.littlegreenfootballs.com retyped the memos using Microsoft Word and showed them to be a perfect typographic match. Then retired Air National Guard officers and enlisted clerks weighed in, noting that the memos broke many 1970s-era rules of military style.

And that was only a hundredth of it.

The most amazing thing is that these developments could be followed in real time by anyone owning a computer. CBS issued periodic statements throughout the day Thursday, but by Friday, the cyberweight of the bloggers' (and, by then, talk-radio, TV and newspaper) reports couldn't be ignored. So Dan Rather on "CBS Evening News" defended the original report.

But a Saturday cybertour found more experts frowning at the documents, more newspapers publishing their own critical reports and even a CBS source or two walking away from the original story.

If CBS winds up retracting, the credit will have to go to the "blogosphere," a new and powerful force in journalism. Twin Cities blogger James Lileks of www.lileks.com said it best: "The Internet smells blood and leaps, and that has turned the game around, for better or worse."

Jack sent this one with no additional comment, so I will add my own to this one.

Mark Styne, columnist for the Chicago Sun Times and for Britains Telegraph Group, has a piece in today's Australian about the masacre of 350 (at this time) children in a school in Beslan.

No Word For It But Slaughter says in plain and brutal language what must be said. Mr. Styne says it so well, there is nothing I can add, nor can I cherry-pick a quote that adequately sums up the item. It bears reading in it's entirety. It also bears being posted in as many places as possible.

Jack, this is an amazing piece. Thank you for sending me this link. And the rest of you? Get reading.

Heartbreaking events in Russia, that could as easily have been here at home.
Remember Richard Reid ? The MSM didn't cover this well enough, especially the sentencing. We need to ferret out the scum in this nation too, while I'd prefer the Russian method of retribution, we have to rely on those jelly types whose political correctness lets these animals roam about freely. What this nation needs is more judges like Judge William Young, the only thing I disagree with is his sentence of life instead of death. In the meantime we as a nation can vote some of these pacifist judges out of their positions.


You can find and read the transcript below in the extended post, or take the link above to the transcript as presented by CNN. --Mamamontezz

Judge William Young

Mr. Richard C. Reid, hearken now to the sentence the Court imposes upon you.
" we all know that the way we treat you, Mr. Reid, is the measure of our own liberties".
-- Judge William Young

On counts 1, 5 and 6 the Court sentences you to life in prison in the custody of the United States Attorney General. On counts 2, 3, 4 and 7, the Court sentences you to 20 years in prison on each count, the sentence on each count to run consecutive one with the other. That's 80 years.

On Count 8 the Court sentences you to the mandatory 30 years consecutive to the 80 years just imposed. The Court imposes upon you on each of the eight counts a fine of $250,000 for the aggregate fine of $2 million.

The Court accepts the government's recommendation with respect to restitution and orders restitution in the amount of $298.17 to Andre Bousquet and $5,784 to American Airlines.

The Court imposes upon you the $800 special assessment.

The Court imposes upon you five years supervised release simply because the law requires it. But the life sentences are real life sentences so I need not go any further.

This is the sentence that is provided for by our statutes. It is a fair and a just sentence. It is a righteous sentence. Let me explain this to you.

We are not afraid of any of your terrorist co-conspirators, Mr. Reid. We are Americans. We have been through the fire before. There is all too much war talk here. And I say that to everyone with the utmost respect.

Here in this court where we deal with individuals as individuals, and care for individuals as individuals, as human beings we reach out for justice.

You are not an enemy combatant. You are a terrorist. You are not a soldier in any war. You are a terrorist. To give you that reference, to call you a soldier gives you far too much stature. Whether it is the officers of government who do it or your attorney who does it, or that happens to be your view, you are a terrorist.

And we do not negotiate with terrorists. We do not treat with terrorists. We do not sign documents with terrorists.

We hunt them down one by one and bring them to justice.

So war talk is way out of line in this court. You're a big fellow. But you're not that big. You're no warrior. I know warriors. You are a terrorist. A species of criminal guilty of multiple attempted murders.

In a very real sense Trooper Santiago had it right when first you were taken off that plane and into custody and you wondered where the press and where the TV crews were and you said you're no big deal. You're no big deal.

What your counsel, what your able counsel and what the equally able United States attorneys have grappled with and what I have as honestly as I know how tried to grapple with, is why you did something so horrific. What was it that led you here to this courtroom today? I have listened respectfully to what you have to say. And I ask you to search your heart and ask yourself what sort of unfathomable hate led you to do what you are guilty and admit you are guilty of doing.

And I have an answer for you. It may not satisfy you. But as I search this entire record it comes as close to understanding as I know.

It seems to me you hate the one thing that to us is most precious. You hate our freedom. Our individual freedom. Our individual freedom to live as we choose, to come and go as we choose, to believe or not believe as we individually choose.

Here, in this society, the very winds carry freedom. They carry it everywhere from sea to shining sea. It is because we prize individual freedom so much that you are here in this beautiful courtroom. So that everyone can see, truly see that justice is administered fairly, individually, and discretely.

It is for freedom's seek that your lawyers are striving so vigorously on your behalf and have filed appeals, will go on in their, their representation of you before other judges. We care about it. Because we all know that the way we treat you, Mr. Reid, is the measure of our own liberties.

Make no mistake though. It is yet true that we will bear any burden; pay any price, to preserve our freedoms.

Look around this courtroom. Mark it well. The world is not going to long remember what you or I say here. Day after tomorrow it will be forgotten. But this, however, will long endure. Here, in this courtroom, and courtrooms all across America, the American people will gather to see that justice, individual justice, justice, not war, individual justice is in fact being done.

The very President of the United States through his officers will have to come into courtrooms and lay out evidence on which specific matters can be judged, and juries of citizens will gather to sit and judge that evidence democratically, to mold and shape and refine our sense of justice.

See that flag, Mr. Reid? That's the flag of the United States of America. That flag will fly there long after this is all forgotten. That flag still stands for freedom. You know it always will. Custody, Mr. Officer. Stand him down.

YOUNG: We'll recess. All rise.

Nov. 13, 2001 Air Crash over New York Was Work of Al Qaeda Suicide, Says Canadian Intelligence

DEBKAfile Special Report

August 30, 2004, 10:30 PM (GMT+02:00)

According to a top secret Canadian government report, the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York, had a sequel two months later. On November 13, 2001, American Airlines flight 587 crashed over Queens, New York, shortly after takeoff from JFK killing all 265 people aboard. A captured al-Qaeda operative, Mohammed Mansour Jabarah, told Canadian intelligence investigators that a Montreal man who trained in Afghanistan alongside the 9/11 hijackers was responsible, using a small shoe bomb similar to the one used by convicted shoe bomber Richard Reid for his “suicide mission.” He named Abderraouf Jdey, a Canadian citizen known also as “Farouk the Tunisian.”

This is reported in Canada’s National Post

Asked for a comment, US National Transportation Safety Board spokesman, Ted Lopatkiewicz, still insisted there was no evidence of anything other than an accident (in the plane crash over Queens.) It appears, at least the evidence we have, is that a vertical fin came off, not that there was any kind of event in the cabin.”

The same kinds of claims were made officially three years ago too. Yet on November 15, 2001 DEBKAfile’s counter-terror sources maintained that the downing of Flight 587 was the work of terrorists:

The Information accumulating opens up the possibilities of a bomb having been planted near the tail of the Airbus, or a suicide bomber blowing himself up in the rear of the aircraft. The plane came down shortly after taking off for the Dominican Republic from John F. Kennedy International airport. Another scenario under investigation is that a surface-to-air missile was fired from a boat in Jamaica Bay near the airport.

According to DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources, a number of people linked to Al Qaeda in New York behaved suspiciously several hours before the crash; some, who were under surveillance following the September 11 attacks, managed to disappear, with the FBI unable to determine how they slipped away or trace their current whereabouts.

Those sources also noted that the US F-15 warplanes, on 24-hour patrol in the skies of New York and other major US cities, were ordered immediately after the crash to search for any boats or unusual activity in the Jamaica nature reserve.

The morning after, Wednesday, November 14, divers were seen scouring the marsh area for signs that missiles had been fired at the plane, such as a launcher or a scuttled boat, on the assumption that the terrorist who fired the missile escaped in a scuba suit.

Despite adamant denials by the US Federal Aviation Authority, it is now becoming clear that prior to the crash, US intelligence did indeed receive numerous warnings from intelligence sources outside the United States that a terrorist strike was likely on Tuesday, Veterans Day, to mark the two-month anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. (End of quote)

According to the US 9/11 commission, Jdey, 39, came to Canada from Tunisia in 1991 and become a citizen in 1995. With his new passport, he left for Afghanistan and trained with some of the September 11 hijackers. He was dropped from the 9/11 mission after recording a “martyrdom” video. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, planner of the World Trade Center attack, claims Jdey was recruited for a “second wave” of suicide attacks. In 2002, he was one of seven al Qaeda members sought in connection with possible terrorist threat in the United States.

Anarchist Court

Kerry is a threat to our sovereignty and our freedoms, but a more insidious threat exists: legislating from the bench. I'm all in favor of holding judges accountable for breaching the law and even worse the U.S. Constitution.

This is something voters need to consider this election, more strongly than the presidential candidates. Judges enjoy more anonymity than Mafia Dons and inflict infinitely more damage.

As voters we can stop them from destroying what this country was founded on. If Kerry gets elected he will appoint anarchists to the supreme court and the Democrats will rubber stamp those appointments.


An example:

Supreme Court Sides With Pornographers Again
by Phyllis Schlafly

(Full text of the article)

July 14, 2004

Do you ever wonder why the internet is so polluted with pornography? The Supreme Court just reminded us why: it blocks every attempt by Congress to regulate the pornographers.

From its ivory tower, the Court props open the floodgates for smut and graphic sex. Over the past five years, it has repeatedly found new constitutional rights for vulgarity, most recently invalidating the Child Online Protection Act (COPA).

This latest judicial outrage happened on the final day of the Supreme Court term, after which the justices headed out for a long summer break. Lacking teenaged children of their own, the justices closed their eyes to electronic obscenity polluting our children's minds.

For decades, pornographers have enjoyed better treatment by our courts than any other industry. The justices have constitutionally protected obscenity in libraries, filth over cable television, and now unlimited internet pornography.

The flood of pornography started with the Warren Court when it handed down 34 decisions between 1966 and 1970 in favor of the smut peddlers. In mostly one-sentence decisions that were issued anonymously (the justices were too cowardly to sign them), the Court overturned every attempt by communities to maintain standards of decency.

The judges' obsession with smut is astounding. Even though five Supreme Court justices were appointed by Presidents Reagan and the first Bush, graphic sex wins judicial protection in essentially every case.

Woe to those who transgress an obscure environmental law, or say a prayer before a football game, or run a political ad within two months of an election. They find no judicial sympathy, as courts now routinely restrict private property rights and censor political speech.

But the pornographers can do no wrong in the eyes of our top justices. The most explicit sex can be piped into our home computers and the Supreme Court prevents our democratically elected officials from doing anything about it.

COPA was enacted by Congress in response to the Court's invalidation of the predecessor law, the Communications Decency Act of 1996. But decency lost again when six justices knocked out COPA in Ashcroft vs.. ACLU.

COPA was badly needed, as filth plagues the internet, incites sex crimes, and entraps children. COPA banned the posting for "commercial purposes" on the World Wide Web of material that is "patently offensive" in a sexual manner unless the poster takes reasonable steps to restrict access by minors.

You don't need to look very far to find a tragic crime traceable to the internet. In New Jersey in 1997, 15-year-old Sam Manzie, who had fallen prey to homosexual conduct prompted by the internet, sexually assaulted and murdered 11-year-old Eddie Werner, who was selling candy door-to-door.

COPA did not censor a single word or picture. Instead, it merely required the purveyors of sex-for-profit to screen their websites from minors, which can be done by credit card or other verification.

But minors are an intended audience for the highly profitable sex industry. Impressionable teenagers are most easily persuaded to have abortions, and homosexual clubs in high school are designed for the young.

Justice Kennedy declared it unconstitutional for Congress to stop porn flowing to teens, shifting the burden to families to screen out the graphic sex rather than imposing the cost on the companies profiting from the filth. His reasoning is as absurd as telling a family just to pull down its window shades if it doesn't want to see people exposing themselves outside.

In a prior pro-porn decision, Kennedy cited Hollywood morals as a guide for America, but this time he relied on the prevalence of foreign pornography. "40% of harmful-to-minors content comes from overseas," he declared in holding that the other 60% of obscenity is wrapped in the First Amendment.

The Supreme Court insisted that individual internet users should buy filters to try to block the vulgarity. Should those who do not like air pollution be told to buy air masks?

The Supreme Court protects pornography in books, movies, cable television, and the internet, real or simulated, against all citizens' clean-up efforts. The Court is no longer the blindfolded lady weighing a controversy, but is dominated by media-driven supremacists forcing us down into a moral sewer.

This latest pro-porn decision was too much even for Clinton-appointed Justice Breyer. He said, "Congress passed the current statute in response to the Court's decision" invalidating the prior law; "what else was Congress supposed to do?"

The solution to these ills foisted on us by judicial supremacists is for Congress to exercise its constitutional powers to remove jurisdiction from the federal courts over pornography. The Court has abused its power, and it's Congress's duty to end the judicial abuse.

Thanks for posting [links for The New Soldier], I downloaded the PDF's about Kerry's "New Soldier" , I'll attempt to gag some of it down, not in the right frame of mind at present. I'll try but it will not change my opinion of him, his past and present behaviour preclude that.

Here is an article about the hero that's pretty telling, for you to read.

Seems the man accused of molesting women children won't have to suffer a lengthy trial or jail-time in some cesspool of a third-world jail. His accusers made sure of that. In triplicate. Stamped and notarized, as it were.

I'm afraid if I had been a bailiff in that court, I'd have tipped my hat, murmered "Be careful, Ma'am, have a nice day," and held the door open for any bloodied woman or child trying to leave.

Seems when the family holds a position in Indian society, they keep it across the generations.

Even the executioner's position.

And you know, Mr. Nata Mullick has the right attitude about the whole thing:

"I am like the police. They arrest criminals, I hang the worst of them. I am doing what the government wants me to do. It is they who will decide whether criminals should be hanged or not," says Nata Mullick.

Damned right, Mr. Mullick.

Make you cry...

Here is a good story, hope you enjoy it.

Well, I'll vouch for it. It's a lovely story, and very touching for a marshmellow such as myself.

As she stood in front of her 5th grade class on the very first day of school, she told the children an untruth. Like most teachers, she looked at her students and said that she loved them all the same.

However, that was impossible, because there in the front row, slumped in his seat, was a little boy named Teddy Stoddard.

Mrs. Thompson had watched Teddy the year before and noticed that he did not play well with the other children, that his clothes were messy and that he constantly needed a bath. In addition, Teddy could be unpleasant.

It got to the point where Mrs. Thompson would actually take delight in marking his papers with a broad red pen, making bold X's and then putting a big "F" at the top of his papers.

At the school where Mrs. Thompson taught, she was required to review each child's past records and she put Teddy's off until last. However, when she reviewed his file, she was in for a surprise.

Teddy's first grade teacher wrote, "Teddy is a bright child with a ready laugh. He does his work neatly and has good manners... he is a joy to be around.."

His second grade teacher wrote, "Teddy is an excellent student, well liked by his classmates, but he is troubled because his mother has a terminal illness and life at home must be a struggle."

His third grade teacher wrote, "His mother's death has been hard on him. He tries to do his best, but his father doesn't show much interest and his home life will soon affect him if some steps aren't taken."

Teddy's fourth grade teacher wrote, "Teddy is withdrawn and doesn't show much interest in school. He doesn't have many friends and he sometimes sleeps in class."

By now, Mrs. Thompson realized the problem and she was ashamed of herself. She felt even worse when her students brought her Christmas presents, wrapped in beautiful ribbons and bright paper, except for Teddy's. His present was clumsily wrapped in the heavy, brown paper that he got from a grocery bag Mrs. Thompson took pains to open it in the middle of the other presents. Some of the children started to laugh when she found a rhinestone bracelet with some of the stones missing, and a bottle that was one-quarter full of perfume..

But she stifled the children's laughter when she exclaimed how pretty the bracelet was, putting it on, and dabbing some of the perfume on her wrist. Teddy Stoddard stayed after school that day just long enough to say, "Mrs. Thompson, today you smelled just like my Mom used to." After the children left, she cried for at least an hour.

On that very day, she quit teaching reading, writing and arithmetic. Instead, she began to teach children. Mrs. Thompson paid particular attention to Teddy. As she worked with him, his mind seemed to come alive. The more she encouraged him, the faster he responded. By the end of the year, Teddy had become one of the smartest children in the class and, despite her lie that she would love all the children the same, Teddy became one of her "teacher's pets.."

A year later, she found a note under her door, from Teddy, telling her that she was still the best teacher he ever had in his whole life.

Six years went by before she got another note from Teddy. He then wrote that he had finished high school, third in his class, and she was still the best teacher he ever had in life.

Four years after that, she got another letter, saying that while things had been tough at times, he'd stayed in school, had stuck with it, and would soon graduate from college with the highest of honors. He assured Mrs. Thompson that she was still the best and favorite teacher he had ever had in his whole life.

Then four more years passed and yet another letter came. This time he explained that after he got his bachelor's degree, he decided to go a little further. The letter explained that she was still the best and favorite teacher he ever had. But now his name was a little longer.... The letter was signed, Theodore F. Stoddard, MD.

The story does not end there. You see, there was yet another letter that spring. Teddy said he had met this girl and was going to be married. He explained that his father had died a couple of years ago and he was wondering if Mrs. Thompson might agree to sit at the wedding in the place that was usually reserved for the mother of the groom.

Of course, Mrs. Thompson did. And guess what? She wore that bracelet, the one with several rhinestones missing. Moreover, she made sure she was wearing the perfume that Teddy remembered his mother wearing on their last Christmas together.

They hugged each other, and Dr. Stoddard whispered in Mrs. Thompson's ear, "Thank you Mrs. Thompson for believing in me. Thank you so much for making me feel important and showing me that I could make a difference."

Mrs. Thompson, with tears in her eyes, whispered back. She said, "Teddy, you have it all wrong. You were the one who taught me that I could make a difference. I didn't know how to teach until I met you."

(For you that don't know, Teddy Stoddard is the Dr. at Iowa Methodist Hospital in Des Moines that has the Stoddard Cancer Wing.)

Jack's Report

Not much news on the U.S. media.
FOX is starting to look like one of those tabloids you find at the store checkstand. "Will Mark Geragos be free from the Peterson trial in time to take on the Hacking media event in this ongoing soap opera?"


IDF: Palestinian ambulances used to transport bombs

An advanced IDF explosives-detection device employed at the Hawara checkpoint near Nablus discovered that a Palestinian ambulance was being used to transport explosive material.

The device found scent traces of explosives material inside the ambulance, Israel Radio reported Monday. The ambulance driver was arrested.

IDF forces have started employing advanced explosives-detection technology at checkpoints and roadblocks in the Palestinian territories, Israel Radio reported Monday.

The devices are based on advanced X-ray and measurement technology. In their testing stages, they will be deployed at every checkpoint if found to be effective.

Terror plans found on al-Qaida computerBy ASSOCIATED PRESS


Pakistani intelligence agents found plans for new attacks against the United States and Britain on a computer seized during the arrest of a senior al-Qaida suspect wanted for the 1998 twin US embassy bombings in East Africa, the information minister said.

The plans were found in e-mails on the computer of Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, a Tanzanian arrested July 25 after a 12-hour gun battle in the eastern city of Gujrat, Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said Monday.

"We got a few e-mails from Ghailani's computer about (plans for) attacks in the US and UK," he said, adding that the information has been shared with Pakistan's allies - a reference to the United States.

Ahmed said authorities have also arrested another top suspect believed to be a computer and communications expert, and that that man was cooperating with investigators.

"He is a very wanted man, but I cannot say his name now," Ahmed said. He said the man was a militant, but refused to say if he was part of al-Qaida.

Interior Minister Faisal Saleh Hayyat confirmed that Ghailani was sharing "vital" information, but he would not comment on what it was.

"He has given us vital information, but we cannot share specifics," Hayyat said. An intelligence official said the information about a US attack appeared to be centered on New York.

Hayyat said Ghailani remains in Pakistani custody.

The Home Office in London, which is responsible for policing and security in Britain, had no immediate comment on the computer seizure.

Two AK-47 rifles, plastic chemicals, two computers, computer diskettes, and a "large amount" of foreign currency were recovered from the home in Gujrat where Ghailani was seized. More than a dozen others, including his wife and several children, were also arrested in that raid.

Officials believe the group was making plans to flee Pakistan on false passports. Gujrat is a center for document forgers and human smugglers in Pakistan.

The intelligence official also confirmed the arrest of a computer engineer who would send messages using code words to al-Qaida suspects. Pakistani television reported that his name was Noor Mohammed, but the official said that was just an alias.

Ahmed would not confirm whether the information from Ghailani or the computer expert is what prompted US Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge to issue a warning Sunday about a possible al-Qaida attack on prominent financial institutions in New York, Washington and Newark, New Jersey.

Ridge specifically thanked Pakistan for its help in the war on terror during his press conference Sunday.

Ahmed said that Pakistani forces are still acting on the information the computer expert is supplying, and that it is an ongoing investigation.

Just be careful.

A terrorist alert from World Net Daily,

July 16, 2004

Muslims warned: Avoid 'Christian' companies

An al-Qaida-affiliated Internet site is cautioning Muslims to avoid being near planned targets of the terrorist group, reports Geostrategy-Direct, the global intelligence news service.

The Al-Battar Camp online magazine, stated in a June 29 posting that the measure was for Muslims' safety.

By providing the warning, the group is revealing its plans for attacks against "Christian companies, airlines and oil companies," according to a translation of the report.

The report, "A Warning to Muslims With Regard to Getting Close to Infidels and Oppressors," was written by Sheikh Amir Ibn-Abdullah al-Amir.

It advises Muslims, "If you are working with our infidel enemies, beware. Leave their quarters to save your religion, first, as well as for your own safety, should the mujahadeen target these infidel companies that hold enmity toward the Muslims and play a role in the war against Muslim nations. Beware of being with these infidels in this situation, lest you become afflicted by what will befall them. Al-Qaida has already warned and explained that it will be targeting these
companies, especially the airlines, the oil companies and others run by the Christians."

U.S. intelligence officials said last week that terrorists are targeting transportation systems, including trains, ships and airlines as part of preparations for a major attack.

Likely methods include truck bombs or hijacked airliners.

We're going to be seeing a lot more of these over the next several weeks, and may actually witness an attempt during the conventions. All we can do is be as vigilant as possible and report what is unusual or out of place. Don't be like those people who set themselves to be victims by not looking around on their way to the car, or stand and dawdle in secluded places with their heads in their purses or newspapers.

We owe it to our personal safety, as well as the safety of our families, neighborhoods, towns, and country to keep our heads out of our asses and our eyes open. We can depend on no one but ourselves.

From Jack, with my reaction

Some follow-up:

Booed on Bainbridge: Untold story of the story
Steven Gardner.

This is interesting in a lot of ways. I read this, Jack, and questioned the motives of the writer. Was he upset that they had passed up on a story that went national so quickly? Had they been caught with their pants down by another paper and ultimately the internet?

Was he discounting the item from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer as poor journalism? Because the family chose not to talk to him is more an indictment of his paper than an indication of their having been untruthful. There are papers to which I would not give the time of day in a situation like this.

Seriously, which one of you is going to give an interview to Mother Jones, the LATimes or Guardian-UK about something an anti-troops protestor or a black-hooded anarchist did or said to you in a situation like this? Not many, I'm sure.

Sorry, Bainbridge Island. The egg is on your faces, the tar was applied with your own brush on this one. Facts can bring a stinging truth, can't they? And a lot of folks are embarrased enough by the event they witnessed to deny they heard anything. Consider that, Stephen Gardner, staff reporter for Bainbridge Island. You've seen this before. I'll guarantee the Sun crime reporter, Derek Sheppard has.

Mayor apologizes to veteran for parade incident.

And Mayor, this was a day late and a dollar short. The greater question is, What are you going to do to discourage this sort of thing in the future?

And don't try to say for a minute that I'm advocating that you impose some sort of Celebratory Martial Law during the sorts of events that tend to draw malcontents and morons who fling insults at servicemen or their supporters. But your police force knows that while it's much more relaxing and pleasant to stand with a bunch of happy, civic minded, easygoing flagwavers, they belong with the bunch that looks like they might cause a problem.

Good links, Jack. The apologist for an inappropriate display by the crowd at a patriotic event started my day out nicely. I never doubted for a minute that there would be at least one.

A What? $34 Burger?

Once upon a time, in the time of my stint in local community theatre in downtown Indianapolis, there was a little burger joint on Meridian Street next door to Tomorrows, my favorite alternative lifestyle neighborhood pub.

Henry's Gourmet Hamburgers was an itty bitty place where you could design your own burger, crunch your way though waffle-fries with malt vinegar, and drink a tall, cool, carbonated beverage for less than $10 any day of the week. Big, thick, hand-formed halfpound burgers, rare to well done, a multitude of different rolls or buns, and a huge list of things you could add to your burger.

This place only lasted a couple of years, but I and my friends were there all the time, especially when in rehersal for one show or another, legit or "drag", at the theatre or at Talbot Street. And the feisty old broad who ran the place was cool with everyone who came in.

But a $34 burger? Insane. And in Canada no less? Trendy Vancouver, I see.

And what do you get for a $34 burger? House-made cheese bun, five ounces of ground flank steak, two ounces of foie gras, two ounces of a mixture of short-rib meat and portobello and oyster mushrooms, truffle aioli, tomato and shallot fondue, along with gaufrette potatoes (waffle-cut) and tempura Cipollini onion rings.

But this is Canada.  <br/>Is it Human-Free Beef?

It's not even a half pound burger. And it's in Canada. Isn't that the place where that serial killer was grinding his victims into the sausage he was selling? Just curious.

Anyway, just for persepctive, my Henry burger on its own was less than $5. It was a half-pound. I always had mine on a bun covered with little sweet onion shreds baked into the crust. Medium Rare. Topped with either tahini or peanut butter (don't knock it till you've tried it) and a thick slice of provolone cheese. Add a mix of hot stone-ground mustard and real mayo to the bottom bun. Top the burger with fresh mushroom slices, wafer-thin fresh cucumber slices, shaved red onion, a drizzle of balsmic vinegrette, and a handful of really fresh alfalfa sprouts. Maybe a couple of tender fresh spinach leaves if you felt like it. It's not like she didn't have them there, waiting for your order.

No Fois gras. Too fatty, too strong, don't like it. And no truffle, either. But I bet if I had asked, she would probably have added Truffle Oil to her list of available condiments. "Mrs. Henry" was that way. You wanted something all you had to do was ask and she'd likely as not have it the next time you came in. And she'd let you know she had it the minute you walked in the door, too.

Did I say she made her own cole slaw too? Toss some of that on a burger, too, if you liked that sort of thing.

Damned awesome burger. And back in the Regan era when I was going there, that burger was only about $5. Even today, I don't imagine she'd charge much more than $8 or $10 for it, if her place were still around.

So a $34 status burger? It could never measure up to the pure Burger-Nirvana I experienced in a tiny inner-city burger joint 20 years ago when nobody was even thinking beyond fast food.

Thanks, Jack, for that link. Made me all nostalgic for Henry's Gourmet Burgers. Hadn't thought about them in years. Still miss that old broad and those amazing burgers.

I just love it when Jack sends me links! They're always good ones. Read, people, read.

Seems we always have to watch our backs.

Sorry, Elena Sassower. You've made your bed, now lay in it. Even an activist such as yourself has to have the common sense to know when enough is enough and to pick your battles. Obviously this is intended as a learning experience for you and I hope you avail yourself of it.
