I saw this story and thought it was some sort of joke. Obviously, it is not. But it is hilarious...and so is the headline:
School Mistakes Huge Burrito for a Weapon
CLOVIS, N.M. - A call about a possible weapon at a middle school prompted police to put armed officers on rooftops, close nearby streets and lock down the school. All over a giant burrito.
Someone called authorities Thursday after seeing a boy carrying something long and wrapped into Marshall Junior High.
The drama ended two hours later when the suspicious item was identified as a 30-inch burrito filled with steak, guacamole, lettuce, salsa and jalapenos and wrapped inside tin foil and a white T-shirt.
The Downtrodden Party should make the burrito the motto of their party. Just like the burrito, after you deal with it you get a burning feeling in your gut, and all you wind up with in the end is less money in your pocket and really bad gas.
A few months ago, we posted a little ditty showing how Rep. Loretta Sanchez, Downie dumbshit of California, made a complete ass of herself when she tried to challenge Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on a matter of numbers. Sanchez, for those of you who missed it, tried to out-do Rumsfeld, and when he corrected her she sat there like a bump on a log.
Well, it has happened again, once again with Rumsfeld. This time, however, the moron is Senator Daniel Inouye, Downie idjit from Hawaii. Danny Boy served in World War II, and while he should be commended for his service to country (he lost an arm in combat), he is obviously a mental letch when it comes to reality and he really does need to retire.
Check out how Rumsfeld sliced him a new asshole with this cutting remark:
Rumsfeld: 'The last thing we need is a draft'
Sen. Daniel Inouye, the Democrat from Hawaii, said, "For the first time in many years the Army and Marine Corps are not meeting their recruiting targets. There are some who are already discussing the draft."
Rumsfeld leaned closer to the microphone and said, "I think the only people who could conceivably be talking about a draft are people who are speaking from pinnacles of near-perfect ignorance."
The question here is: Why do Downies continue to whisper the word "draft"? After all, they tried it last year, spreading word around campuses that "if Bush is re-elected, we will definitely have a draft." No matter how many times President Bush said "we will not have a draft," liberalidiots kept up the campaign, even starting websites to let people know that the draft was going to happen as soon as Bush started his second term. Well, Bush won, and the only people who keep mentioning the word "draft" are leftwingimbeciles.
Rumsfeld showed Inouye that the Hawaiian is mentally slow. But that problem appears to affect everyone on the left.
No matter what anyone says, Islam is a dangerous cult, it is run by lunatics and thieves who hate everyone who is not Muslim, and they preach terrorism and can only be defeated with violence.
So, today, Joobo brings you some news from this cult of death and savagery: two female Islamic terrorists, and a Muslim in Britain tries to impose his sickening religion on schoolchildren:
Two Women Open Fire on Cairo Tourist Bus
CAIRO (Reuters) - Two veiled women opened fire on a tourist bus in southern Cairo on Saturday but missed, Cairo Security Director Nabil el-Azabi said.
Security officers at the scene said one of the attackers then shot dead the other, before shooting and wounding herself.
Azabi said one of the women could have been the wife of a man on the run and wanted in connection with an April 7 attack on tourists in Cairo.
It is so wonderful hearing that ugly veiled women who are oppressed by Islamicterror are now becoming as fanatic and sick as the males in the cult.
But, of course Muslims want to make sure everyone either becomes a Muslim or is shunned and then killed. They do this piece by piece in Western society, all done in the name of "tolerance" and "inclusion."
Father wants Islamic food served in school
A SCHOOL has agreed to review its meals policy after a parent requested religious food for his son.
Ahmad Ghazoini, of Second Avenue, Acton, believes Berrymede Infant and Nursery School in Park Road North, Acton, should provide the option of halal meals for Muslim pupils as he believes 70 per cent of the school's population belong to the Islamic faith.
Mr Ghazoini, who has a five-year-old son at the school, told the Times: "Muslims can only eat food and drink which is halal.This means only meat and poultry that has been slaughtered according to the Islamic methodology.
For anyone in the know, "halal" is a phony, made-up "standard" of food used by Muslims so they can feel equal to Jews, who eat "kosher" food. Somehow, Muslims need to invent crap like this to feel like their religion is not a cult, and then they believe it has some meaning. It really doesn't.
As long as civilized societies allow Muslim bullcrap like this in our second story to go unchallenged, more incidents like the one in our first story will continue to happen.
The Euro-peons spend most of their time either being smelly assholes or hating America - sometimes they do both at the same time. And, boy, do they do both rather well.
These ungrateful scumbags forget the tens of thousands of American men and women, some not older than 20, who went over to Europe during two world wars (started by Euro-peons who then called on us twice to help them) and gave their lives to save these people. The graves in American cemeteries are sheer testimony to this.
So when we hear Euro-peons do things like this, we get a tight feeling in our guts:
Belgian Doctors Bill U.S. for Treating Iraqi Girl
Belgian doctors sent an Iraqi girl home on Thursday after treating her for leg wounds caused by a bomb during the U.S. invasion -- and sent the 51,570 euro ($66,650) bill to the U.S. embassy.
"We haven't heard from them yet," said Bert De Belder, coordinator of the humanitarian agency Medical Aid for Third World which brought the girl to Belgium.
"I'm curious to know their reaction," he told Reuters. "We're giving them 10 days to respond ... I don't think they will pay it."
Here is what I would recommend to the US Embassy in Brussels: Send these people a lovely note, which should read:
AS SOON AS YOU PAY US BACK FOR SAVING YOU FROM ADOLF HITLER, WE WILL PAY THIS BILL. AS SOON AS YOU PAY BACK THE BILLIONS WE LOANED YOU IN THE MARSHALL PLAN SO YOU COULD BE FREE OF POVERTY, DISEASE, AND STARVATION, WE WILL PAY THIS BILL.
UNTIL THEN, ALL THE AMERICANS WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE FREE FROM NAZIS HAVE ASKED US TO TELL YOU TO SHOVE THE BILL UP YOUR ASSES.
THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
If you are a liberal, more than likely you are a loser. Yes, I am sorry to have to say that so bluntly, but when you read the following from your fellow liberals, either you will agree - as I figure you will - or you will cringe. If you do the latter, you are not hopeless - there is still a chance for a loser like yourself.
It's time for a new brand of journalism
Let the market decide. If the right-wing crackpots -- sorry, ''people of faith" -- can spend megabucks to promote knuckle-dragging judges, they can surely finance some creationist teaching in local schools.
How much love from losers! But if you think Mr. Alex Beam of the Boston Globe is a complete liberalloser, then surely you will find a large rotting hole in hell for the originator of these wonderful comments, on the looney Downiesunderground site:
you hear that sound?
you hear that sound?
thats the sound of the world's smallest violin playing one for the Zell "The Psycho from Hell" Miller...
I wouldn't give two shits for that feckless traitor to float on if he were drowning.
The next time someone anywhere asks, "Why can't the Downies win an election?" let them in on these two comments. They speak volumes about a party whose mainstream is composed of fucking lunatics.

As regular readers of this column will note, Senator "Harry" Reid (D-NV), leader of the Really in the Minority Party, the Downtroddens, has become as stoopid and silly as his predecessor, "Tommy the Dunce" Daschle, who was defeated in 2004 as his whole party lost seats in the US Congress. Now Reid, who has been blocking and doing nothing just like Daschle, admits (probably in a moment of sobriety) that the Downies need "a miracle" to win back control of the US Senate:
'Miracle' needed to win back Senate
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid raised a few eyebrows yesterday on the Senate floor when he said it would take a "miracle" for Democrats to win enough races next year to take back the Senate.
"I would like to think a miracle would happen and we would pick up five seats this time," he said during a floor debate over the filibusters of President Bush's judicial nominees. "I guess miracles never cease."
Republicans were delighted by what they called an "admission" from the highest-ranking elected Democrat in the country.
"After listening to Senator Reid's political spin about judicial nominees for the last several weeks, it is good to hear him come back to reality -- if even for a brief moment," said Brian Nick, spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. "Senator Reid can do the math: A Democratic Party, plus no ideas, plus obstruction, plus over-the-top partisan rhetoric equals continued minority."
Partisans on both sides of the aisle privately acknowledged that it was a fairly stunning remark.
Reid may have one thing on his side: he can count. And 45 seats held by Downies + a party program of doing nothing, saying nothing, and blocking everything adds up to no seats won for his party. And that simply means more Downie irrelevance and intransigence.
The American economy has been destroyed over a period of decades by the machinations of unions - including the head honcho of aggravation, the AFL-CIO. Formed as Communist fronts during the 1920s and 1930s, these two groups collaborated to form a mighty destructive machine, forcing hundreds of thousands of American jobs to vanish here in the US and then materialize in such union-friendly places as Mexico and China. When you see "Made in China" on something you buy today, you have the AFL-CIO and its brother unions to thank for it.
So when news comes out that the union is not only in massive financial trouble but so is its nascent leader, John Sweeney, a sickeningly disgusting liberal, one can smile with the satisfaction that what goes around comes around:
AFL-CIO Has Money Problems; Labor Federation Could Be Forced to Lay Off Staff, President Acknowledges
AFL-CIO President John J. Sweeney, who is facing challenges from some of the labor federation's largest member unions, yesterday acknowledged that the organization is financially squeezed and may have to lay off a quarter of its workforce.
Sweeney, who was first elected in 1995 as an insurgent who promised to increase the percentage of the workforce represented by unions, has presided over a decade of union decline. Signs of the AFL-CIO's precarious financial condition could make Sweeney more vulnerable to challenges to his leadership at the federation's July convention in Chicago.
Sweeney's goal in a teleconference with reporters was to focus on efforts by the AFL-CIO to halt the decline in union membership. "We must increase the size of our membership and restore union density -- especially in key industries -- or no other strategies to strengthen our movement will work," the federation said in a report released yesterday.
In the nearly 50 years since the AFL-CIO was created by a merger of two labor federations, union membership fell from about 33 percent of the workforce to 12.5 percent. The decline of organized labor has a ripple effect in the economy because union members usually receive higher pay and better benefits than unorganized workers in their industries. Labor's weakness has damaged the strength of its ally, the Democratic Party, and weakened the lobbying muscle of labor in Washington and in state capitals.
Sweeney's end as head of the union is coming, and coming fast. Whether the union picks a younger man to succeed him or a member of the old guard, the union will still see a waning of its influence.
40 years ago a union endorsement for a political candidate mattered. Today, it draws not even the raise of an eyebrow except by the laughable liberal media.
The end is nigh for Paul Martin, the intensely stupid PM of some country called "Canada" (I looked it up - no such place exists, but there is a lump of colorless and cold land north of the United States populated mostly by leftist freaks and antiwar imbeciles), who is now tied...yep, he is...to the Oil for Food Scandal currently ensnaring the Disunited Nations and its assumed leader, "Coffee Kofi" Annan:
Saddam invested one million dollars in Paul Martin-owned Cordex
The Canadian company that Saddam Hussein invested a million dollars in belonged to the Prime Minister of Canada, canadafreepress.com has discovered.
Cordex Petroleum Inc., launched with Saddam’s million by Prime Minister Paul Martin’s mentor Maurice Strong’s son Fred Strong, is listed among Martin’s assets to the Federal Ethics committee on November 4, 2003.
Among Martin’s Public Declaration of Declarable Assets are: "The Canada Steamship Lines Group Inc. (Montreal, Canada) 100 percent owned"; "Canada Steamship Lines Inc. (Montreal, Canada) 100 percent owned"–Cordex Petroleums Inc. (Alberta, Canada) 4.6 percent owned by the CSL Group Inc."
Yesterday, Strong admitted that Tongsun Park, the Korean man accused by U.S. federal authorities of illegally acting as an Iraqi agent, invested in Cordex, the company he owned with his son, in 1997.
This story keeps getting wider, and keeps getting more and more interesting.
Now that we know that a now-sitting world leader (although I would not count Canada as leading in anything but pot smoking and stoopidity) was heavily involved in helping Saddam Hussein evade UN restrictions on oil sales - not to mention that Jackie Chirac of France was actually selling him missiles to assist his army.
This is sickening.
That is the comical title of an e-mail to little old me from no less a moron than Tom McMahon, Executive Director of the Downtrodden Party, writing how those evil Republicans are just trying to do something in Washington, and because Downies have an aversion to doing anything even after a catastrophe, he rants and raves and rails and...voila! asks for some of my hard-earned money to help his silly party, knowing full well that if I was dumb enough to send it to him, and his minions got elected, they would take that as an endorsement and clean my bank account out through higher and more luxurious taxation.
And now, live from Doofusland, we give you one of the Chief Doofi...with my comments inserted, of course:
Governor Christine Gregoire was sworn in months ago in Washington State-- the Republican Secretary of State certified her victory, and she's been governing for over 100 days.
[And she was found to have stolen the election. So what if some moronic Republican "certified" her theft? - Ed.]
Her race was close -- that's why, immediately after the election, they conducted an initial machine recount. Then, even though the Washington State Democratic Party had to pay for it (which they did with your help), they conducted a hand recount to make sure that every legal vote was protected and counted.
[It was so "protected" that hundreds of votes mysteriously turned up in places they should not have been...making it more likely that Gregoire's thieving party is knee-deep in this theft. - Ed.]
But guess what -- the Republican who lost the election still won't admit defeat.
[It is always so hard to let a thief have his...or, in this case, her...winnings. You just want them back, right? - Ed.]
He's struggling to seize power and stay in the headlines by holding press conferences, running ads and filing junk lawsuits. He has even publicly released lists of people he thinks shouldn't have been allowed to vote and accused others of being convicted felons -- only to find that his lists contained registered, legal voters every time.
[Fortunately for Dino Rossi, the Republican, you have morons like McMahon and Gregoire on the opposing side - it makes it so much easier to defeat them via intelligence. - Ed.]
The Democratic Party in Washington needs to beat back this assault on their elected governor. Please support them now:
[I really wish the party of Rapist Willy Klintoon would not use the term "beat back" in any of their future mailings, okay? - Ed.]
As Governor Dean works with state party chairs across the country to give them the resources they need to build for the future, we can't lose sight of the battles being fought on the ground right now.
I know that Governor Dean asked for your financial support just a couple of weeks ago. Thousands of people like you responded -- putting staff and resources on the ground in our first four states and accelerating the pace of our program to build a long-term presence everywhere. Thanks to you we'll be able to announce the next group of states shortly.
But we can't fall into the trap of diverting resources from our long-term goals -- we have to find a way to meet urgent needs at the same time.
That's why I'm asking you to step up and help the Washington State Party now. No one anticipated the Republicans would lose the election and mount a reckless and absurd campaign for months after. The state party needs resources to keep its team going -- to keep fighting back in public and in the courtroom.
Please consider making a contribution now:
As you watch the situation in Washington State unfold, you can't help but see the similarity to what's going on in Washington, D.C. -- when the Republicans don't win they try to change the rules.
[Yep - those evil Republicans. Let them win majorities in the House and Senate and just watch them to try to run things. Damn them all to hell! - Ed.]
Here, Senate Republicans want to change the rules so they can silence Democrats and exercise absolute power. And House Republicans changed the ethics rules to protect their leader, Tom DeLay, whose corruption and influence peddling schemes seem to unravel more every day.
[As Downies continue to lie and make this an issue of "Senate rules" and not of their reluctance to all votes on judges, they will be seen as more and more obstructionist. And Tom Delay has not been found guilty of one single matter. Leave it to Downies to convict someone before the investigation ever happens. - Ed.]
Republican leaders in Congress and their operatives in the states are out of touch and out of control. And with the least popular second-term president ever, their desperate abuses of power will only get more extreme.
[Yep...its the evil Republicans AND George W. Bush and "their operatives in the states" (whatever that means) are "out of control." Once again: Downiespeak for "Son of a bitch! We keep losing elections to these Republicans! They must be out of control!" - Ed.]
We need to stop them in their tracks now so we can get back to the people's business:
[That's right...we need to stop the Republicans so that we Downies can get back to the business of doing nothing, saying nothing, and blocking everything. Now THAT is a program for success! - Ed.]
Executive Director, Downtrodden National Committee
I cannot wait until the midterm elections in 2006. I want to see Howard "Duckie" Dean lead his ridiculous and moron-laden collections of frauds, thieves, and liars to utter ruin...maybe a 10 seat pickup in the House and 2-3 in the Senate for the Republicans will make Howie turn lime green with sickness. It can't hurt, and I would be thrilled to see him and his party get the fourth consecutive spanking by George W. Bush and the GOP.

In her years of working at CNN, one of the "Triad of Journalistic Evil," a group of three "networks" (which includes the BBC in England and al-Jazeera in the Middle East) which does its darned best to print the worst anti-American, anti-Israel, and anti-George W. Bush stories it can, and slants all of its news to the far left, Judy Dandruff has led the way in making it appear that George W. Bush is evil, the war in Iraq is simply bad and getting worse (no good news to ever report), and Israel is an illegal nation and that Palestinians committing mass murder are simply good people defending themselves by killing innocent men, women and children. Now, she is retiring:
Anchor Judy Woodruff Leaving CNN in June
Judy Woodruff, the anchor of CNN's "Inside Politics," is leaving the network when her contract expires in June.
Woodruff, 58, said Thursday that she hoped to teach, write and work on long-form documentaries. She'll also be a consultant and occasional contributor to CNN.
"This gives me the opportunity to sit back, take a deep breath and think about what I want to do," Woodruff told The Associated Press. "I do want to stay in journalism. I'm not leaving journalism. I'm just leaving daily journalism."
CNN offered Woodruff a new contract, but she had decided to leave before those discussions began.
This is definitely good news...it means that CNN is about to shod itself of a ranting leftwing ideologue who made the good look bad and the bad look good.
Good riddance to her and her evil words and thoughts.
Since he was a little toddler just 25 years ago (or, that could be 50 years ago - with Gore it is hard not to lie), Albert Gore has been a liar, a thief, and a comedian - the fact that he can talk about some subjects while at the same time causing raucous laughter at his insanity is public knowledge. But his latest "talk" to the nutties at Mooreon.org, the far, far, far, far, far leftwingloony group, is making him into a national comedian.
Gore Blasts GOP Bid to Block Filibusters
WASHINGTON (AP) - Former Vice President Al Gore on Wednesday blamed Republican "lust for one-party domination" for the GOP campaign to change Senate rules on filibustering judicial nominees, and he assailed religious zealots for driving the effort.
Wading into the political fight that has roiled the Senate, the 2000 Democratic presidential candidate and former Tennessee senator warned that altering rules that have served the nation for 230 years would result in a breakdown in the separation of powers.
"What makes it so dangerous for our country is their willingness to do serious damage to our American democracy in order to satisfy their lust for one-party domination of all three branches of government," Gore said of the GOP in a speech. "They seek nothing less than absolute power."
There is one reason why Gore is not now President of the United States: the American people saw him for what he was 4 1/2 years ago and sent him packing and George W. Bush to the White House for what would be two terms as President.
That Al Gore is insane is not new news. That he still has wide support amongst the farleftloony crowd in America is also not. What is news is that the delusional American media still continues to pay attention to his rantings and ravings.
Read this story, and gag: How fire officials found a huge lot of pro-Osama bin Laden materials in an Islamic market in Brooklyn, NY, but they caution that there is nothing wrong here:
Joobo the King of Wisdom
April 27, 2005 -- Firefighters found more than 200 vehicle airbags believed to be stolen in the back room of a Brooklyn supermarket, where newspaper clippings about Osama bin Laden and beheadings in Iraq covered the walls, authorities said.
The firefighters from Ladder Co. 123 conducting a routine inspection, discovered the air bags — which sell for about $750 to $1,000 each — at the Superior Food Market at 1503 St. John's Place in Crown Heights.
Firefighters notified cops, and the FBI-NYPD joint terrorist task force was called in to search the building.
Authorities, however, did not believe they had stumbled onto a terrorist cell, even though the room contained some materials that could be used to fashion pipe bombs, sources said.
Yep, you can see a story like this and scream at the page or the computer screen: "WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? THERE ARE TERRORISTS FOUND IN NEW YORK WITH PRO-OSAMA MATERIALS, AND THERE IS NO THREAT? WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?"

Another victory over leftist lying and propaganda: John Bolton accuser Melody Townsel, already exposed by her co-workers as an out-and-out liar, not to mention a thief, is now exposed again...this time as a plagiarist. And she admits it on another disgusting leftwing site, Daily Kos.
Important Melody Townsel revelation--PLEASE DISSEMINATE
Tonight, my deepest fears regarding my pending testimony in the John Bolton nomination process have come true: Republicans have dredged up un unfortunate chapter of my life and, clearly, are about to announce it to the world. When you read this, you may decide either that I was stupid to step forward, or that I no longer deserve your trust. I want, however, to be the one to announce this to you all since you've been so unbelievably supportive.
When I was in college, 22 years ago, I plagiarized some columns while working for my college newspaper, and I was removed from staff. Months later, while working for another college newspaper, I wrote a review for a local play that tracked closely in format to another writer's review -- and, although it was not plagiarized, it made my editors, who had become aware of my recent past, very uncomfortable, and we mutually agreed that I would no longer submit stories to them.
As you can imagine, I'm deeply ashamed to be forced to revisit these events so publicly -- and, while I was under tremendous academic, financial and family pressure at the time, there is absolutely NO excuse for what I did so long ago. I knew it was wrong then, and I remain deeply ashamed and embarrassed.
In short, this liar is now saying, "Oops...I got caught in more lies, so forgive me." And she has a nerve of saying later in this hilarious "article" that the "Bush camp" is trying to injure her. This is the same line of crappola that the Clinton liars used when important information on Willy Klipjoint's many fables and perversions were exposed as well.
Of course, Downies who reveled in trying to bring Bolton down will say that this new information means nothing in relation to John Bolton. Of course, they would be lying as usual.
Finally, truth over lies, victory over leftist propaganda: American troops have been cleared in the shooting of the Communist scumbag and terrorist sympathizer Guiliana Sgrena...and their actions were found to be in defense of their own lives.
U.S. Clears Soldiers in Italian Agent's Iraq Death
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. investigators have found that American troops who shot dead an Italian agent at a Baghdad checkpoint on March 4 committed no wrongdoing and will not be disciplined, an Army official said on Monday.
But Italy disagrees with key findings in the preliminary report by the U.S. military investigators and has balked at endorsing it, added the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.
U.S. troops fatally shot the Italian intelligence officer, Nicola Calipari, when they opened fire on a car heading for Baghdad airport in which he was escorting Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena, a hostage who had just been released.
It is assured that those who side with this evil woman and those who hate America (including many leftwing Americans) will find fault with this decision...but, to them I say: FUCK YOU.

It is never hard to wait until some dumb Hollywood leftist asshole opens their mouth to either bad mouth President Bush or to show how much they truly hate America and Americans. So it is no surprise to hear that "the United States deserved what happened on 9/11" from the mouth of leftwingimbecile Maggie Gyllenhaal:
Actress: 9/11 our fault
Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, star of a new flick about the aftermath of 9/11, believes the United States "is responsible in some way" for the devastating terror attacks.
Gyllenhaal, 27, made the comments at the Tribeca Film Festival, where her new movie "The Great New Wonderful" - which has a plot centered on the destruction of the World Trade Center - premiered Friday.
"I think what's good about the movie is that it deals with 9/11 in such a subtle, open way that I think it allows it to be more complicated than just, 'Oh, look at these poor New Yorkers and how hard it was for them,'" Gyllenhaal told the NY1 cable channel.
"Because I think America has done reprehensible things and is responsible in some way and so I think the delicacy with which it's dealt allows that to sort of creep in," she added.
What Americans need to do is the following: if you see a film which has this disgusting woman in its cast, you need to boycott that film. You need to write to the movie studios and tell them that you will boycott all films with her in them. And then you need to make sure that advertisers who advertise during her films are made known of your sentiments - and that you will boycott their products if they continue to back her.
Perhaps if work dried up for this woman, and she was shunned for her sickening comments, perhaps an apology would be forthcoming - or her career would just end. Maybe we can do to her what was done to Whoopi Goldberg - make her pay for her anti-American commentary.
Muslims have a problem - they are ruled by despots in the countries where they are a majority, and in those countries where they are part of the minority they refuse to assimilate, they cause tensions with those around them who do not want to kowtow to their way of life, and they use their methods of hate to impose their radical ways on others. In short, Muslims continue to be the focus of evil around the world, and the day is coming when this problem must be dealt with one way or another.
So now that Pope Benedict XVI is firmly ensconced in the papacy, leave it to the Muslims to make sure there is some Jew-baiting and Jew-hatred used in telling how the new Pope reached out to Jews and...WHOOPS!...forget to mention those dang Muslims!
Pope Pays Homage to Jews, Ignores Muslims
In a homily marking his inauguration, Pope Benedict XVI on Sunday, April 24, paid homage to “my brothers and sisters” of the Jewish people, but failed to make any reference to Islam or Muslims.
Greeting representatives of other faiths attending the ceremony, the pontiff extended a message of welcome to “the Jewish people, to whom we are joined by a great shared spiritual heritage, one rooted in God's irrevocable promises,” reported Agence France-Presse (AFP).
A few days following his election, Pope Benedict XVI sent a message to Rome's chief rabbi vowing to foster and strengthen dialogue with Jews.
His immediate predecessor John Paul II, who died on April 2, won widespread admiration in Israel not only for being the first pope in history to visit a synagogue but also for his work in reconciling the Roman Catholic Church with the Jewish people.
The Muslims are a problem because they want to be accepted and tolerated (despite many of them planning terrorist attacks) in Western countries, but they refuse to allow Christians in Muslim countries to practice their faith - and these people are harassed and in many cases jailed. Jews in Muslim countries are either murdered or jailed - or they flee to Israel, where other Muslims try to blow them up.
Yes, the Pope needs to "mention" Muslims - when he demands that they either join the rest of the civilized world or else remain ignored and despised, as they are now.

As readers of Joobo's wisdom know so well, the BBC, the British Broadcasting Corporation, is one of the "Triad of Journalistic Evil" - which includes CNN in the United States and al-Jazeera in the Middle East. These three "networks" are the focus of making sure, around the world, that the United States is shown to be evil, that the United States is to be considered a terrorist country, that Israel, and not Palestinians, are the true terrorists in the Middle East, and finally that George W. Bush, and not Islamofascists, is the real problem in the alleged war on terrorism.
Now comes the incredulous story that the BBC, the far-left leaning organization which tried to bring down British Prime Minister Tony Blair, actually planted hecklers in campaign crowds of the Conservative Party, running in the elections to be held on May 5 in Britain. Imagine, for a moment, if CNN planted hecklers in the crowd of President Bush, and then used the footage to help John Kerry...the scandal would never end.
Tory fury as BBC sends hecklers to bait Howard
The BBC was last night plunged into a damaging general election row after it admitted equipping three hecklers with microphones and sending them into a campaign meeting addressed by Michael Howard, the Conservative leader.
The Tories have made an official protest after the hecklers, who were given the microphones by producers, were caught at a party event in the North West last week. Guy Black, the party's head of communications, wrote in a letter to Helen Boaden, the BBC's director of news, that the hecklers began shouting slogans that were "distracting and clearly hostile to the Conservative Party".
These included "Michael Howard is a liar", "You can't trust the Tories" and "You can only trust Tony Blair".
Mr Black's strongly-worded letter accused the BBC of staging the event "to generate a false news story and dramatise coverage. . . intended to embarrass or ridicule the leader of the Conservative Party". The letter said that BBC staff were guilty of "serious misconduct". At least one of the hecklers was seen again at a Tory event in the North East, Mr Black added.
Now check out the BBC's horseshit excuse on why they were doing this:
Last night, the BBC claimed that the exercise was part of a "completely legitimate programme about the history and art of political heckling" and said that other parties' meetings were being "observed". However, The Telegraph has established that none of Tony Blair's meetings was infiltrated or disrupted in similar fashion.
Heads rolled at the BBC after it was discovered that one of their reporters, Andrew Gilligan, made up quotes dealing with the crisis leading to the war in Iraq. Heads need to roll again...and the entire BBC leftwing mindset needs to be changed now.

Canadian PM Paul Martin once had a chance to be, well, what people call "a mensch" - someone who is a man, a leader, someone to respect. Following the last jerkoff who ran the so-called country of Canada, Martin appeared to be a fresh face who would not be an American hater or a disgusting liberal. He turned out to be both.
So, as his incredibly stoopid government of liberals crashes and burns due to a payoff scandal, Martin is now begging the opposition for more time...and how good it is to see a liberal beg:
Canadian PM Wants More Time, Opposition Says No
OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin, battling to prevent the fall of his minority Liberal government over a cash-for-favors scandal, pleaded for more time in office on Friday, but the main opposition party said he could no longer hope to cling to power.
In a rare nationally televised address on Thursday evening, a contrite Martin apologized for the scandal and said he would call an election as soon as an inquiry into alleged kickbacks finished its work in December.
But the official opposition Conservative Party said the country could not be run by a tainted government.
How interesting! Martin is trying to buy time - and his opposition won't give it to him.
Let us hope our Canadian friends to the north tell Mr. Martin 1) that time's up for his ridiculous liberal government, and 2) we need some sanity up there anyway - which means it is time for Conservatives to run things.

Jim Jeffords (
The French, armpits of the world, have decided after backing thugs in Libya, in Iraq, and now Iran, to make sure to side with China - to lift the EU arms embargo AND to support China's threat to invade Taiwan if that country declares independence:
France Backs China on Taiwan
During a state visit to China, French Premier Raffarin threw support behind a law allowing China to attack Taiwan and continued to push for a lift of the EU arms embargo.
At the outset of a three-day visit to China, French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin said he supported Beijing's "anti-secession" law on Taiwan, and vowed to keep pushing for an end to an EU arms embargo that could open the door for Paris to sell weapons to the Asian giant.
Raffarin also signed or finalized major business deals with Beijing valued at around $3.2 billion (2.4 billion euros).
Is there no disgusting thing that the French will not do for money? At what point will the rest of the civilized world tell the French to shut up?
Tuesday, April 19, 2005
Yup - there is no news. President Bush is still President, the Republicans still control Congress, Downies are marginalized everywhere that matters. In short, life is good.
Oh...and Howard Dean is still a fucking lunatic.
I just thought you should know.

If you know the story of Rachel Corrie, you will know what happened to this American leftist and terrorist: she went to Israel to support Palestinian terrorists, and while doing this she was crushed by an Israeli bulldozer demolishing a Palestinian terrorist home. Ooops! you say. Exactly. But American leftists, many of them terrorists on their own, want to make sure everyone is hurt in the name of Corrie - either they denounce Caterpillar, the company that made the bulldozer, or they sue them:
SU law clinic takes Corrie versus Caterpillar, Inc. case
Just before the two year anniversary of Rachel Corrie’s death – resulting from a bulldozer during a nonviolent protest – her parents, Cindy and Craig Corrie, have filed suit against Caterpillar, Inc. with the help of representatives from Seattle University’s human rights law clinic.
“CAT is aiding and abetting war crimes, and so it can be held accountable for foreseeable consequences of those crimes,” said Gwynne Skinner, adjunct professor at the SU Human Rights Law Clinic and primary counsel on the Corrie case.
Corrie was killed Mar. 16, 2003, in Rafah, part of the Israeli-occupied territory of Palestine. She was a part of a nonviolent group working to promote Palestinian human rights, namely trying to intercept and end illegal bulldozing of Palestinian homes by the Israeli Defense Force. She was standing in front of a home belonging to the Nasrallah family when the bulldozer hit.
Standing in front of a terrorist's home while Israelis bulldoze it is not a "nonviolent protest" - it is aiding and abetting terrorism.
If you want to know what a lovely and well-balanced looneytune this woman was, check out this picture of her:
In short, Corrie got exactly what she deserved. The only pity is that her sickeningly liberal friends continue to keep this disgusting woman's name alive.

A new study (from England, mind you) finds that, despite all the evidence to the contrary, injecting someone with chemicals during an execution actually puts them to death. NO SHIT! you yell. Of course, these dunderheads also find that killing someone in such a manner is "inhumane." Their findings:
U.S. Executions by Lethal Injection May Not Be Humane
THURSDAY, April 14 (HealthDay News) -- Prisoner executions by lethal injection in the United States may not be painless or humane, and may not even meet veterinary standards for putting down animals.
So claims a research letter in this week's issue of The Lancet.
The authors concluded that prisoners executed by lethal injection may have experienced awareness and unnecessary suffering as they died because they weren't properly sedated. Anesthesia during lethal injection is essential to minimize the prisoner's suffering.
Lethal injection involves sequential administration of sodium thiopental for anesthesia, pancuronium bromide to induce paralysis, and then potassium chloride to stop the heart and cause death. If anesthesia wasn't used, the condemned prisoner would suffocate and experience excruciating pain without being able to move.
This is very, very interesting. So, since this form of capital punishment is “inhumane,” perhaps we can turn to something that is humane:
Experts Say Ending Feeding Can Lead to a Gentle Death
To many people, death by removing a feeding tube brings to mind the agony of starvation. But medical experts say that the process of dying that begins when food and fluids cease is relatively straightforward, and can cause little discomfort.
"From the data that is available, it is not a horrific thing at all," said Dr. Linda Emanuel, the founder of the Education for Physicians in End-of-Life Care Project at Northwestern University.
In fact, declining food and water is a common way that terminally ill patients end their lives, because it is less painful than violent suicide and requires no help from doctors.
So, here is my solution to appease those who oppose capital punishment, and at the same time making sure that those sentenced to death do not suffer: we should withhold all food and water from them until they die. I call it the “Bobby Sands Solution,” named after the Irish terrorist who starved himself to death in 1981 to protest being jailed by the British authorities. Since liberals find that starving Terri Schiavo to death is no big deal, why should they object when murderers on death row get the same treatment?
Queen Margrethe II of Denmark has warned about the rise of Islamic fundamentalism which is sweeping across Europe, and calls for “opposition to Islam.” You can imagine what the response to this woman’s statement will be from the Islamiclunatics.
Danish queen warns against rise of Islamic fundamentalism
COPENHAGEN (AFP) - Denmark's Queen Margrethe II warned against the rise of Islamic fundamentalism in Denmark and the world in a new book out, saying people must on occasion "show their opposition to Islam.”
"It is a challenge we have to take seriously. We have let this issue float about for too long because we are tolerant and very lazy," she said in the authorized biography "Margrethe" written by journalist Annelise Bistrup.
While she did not specifically refer to fundamentalism, she spoke of "these people for whom religion is their entire lives.”
"We have to show our opposition to Islam and we have to, at times, run the risk of having unflattering labels placed on us because there are some things for which we should display no tolerance," she said.
"And when we are tolerant, we must know whether it is because of convenience or conviction," added the queen, who has reigned since 1972 and celebrates her 65th birthday on Saturday.
Denmark has in recent years been accused of fuelling xenophobic tendencies after implementing a slew of measures aimed at curbing immigration. The government has argued that it wants to focus efforts on improving the assimilation into Danish society of immigrants already in the country.
Finally: a Euro-peon leader who is not a peon and does not kowtow to Islamofascism.

This is a true story - not some shit from The Onion or John Kerry's website:
Man found dead in cemetery
I bet officials there in Michigan find more dead people in that cemetery. And I bet they launch an investigation into how that happened!
Those smart Michiganiers! Or Michigunners! Oh, whatever.
When US troops shot into the car of noted Italian Communist scumbag and liar Giuliana Sgrena, it was an accident - and not done on purpose, as this pro-Islamic terror liar has been claiming since the accident occurred...so finds a joint US-Italian investigation formed after the shooting. Unfortunately, Sgrena appeared on CBS News' 60 Minutes Wednesday to lie some more - and CBS, home of Dan Blather, was all too thrilled to offer her a way to slander US troops some more without any proof whatsoever.
Report clears U.S. in friendly fire incident
BAGHDAD - The friendly fire shooting at a U.S. military checkpoint last month in Baghdad wounded Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena and killed intelligence agent Nicola Calipari.
Now, NBC News has learned that a preliminary report from a joint U.S.-Italian investigation has cleared the American soldiers of any wrongdoing and provides new details into the shooting.
One can bet that this loudmouth leftist Sgrena will continue with her rants about plots and conspiracies against her. I wish her Islamic friends would kidnap her again.
What does it mean to be a Euro-peon? 60+ years ago it meant being a Jew hater who tracked down Jews and sent them to their deaths in numerous concentration camps across that disgusting continent. 20+ years ago it meant marching against Ronald Reagan's opposition to the Communist thugs in Moscow, wishing for a wave of communist peace to swell across the land. Now, it means cavorting with Islamic thugs and terrorists around the world and showing them sympathy, and even giving them support. Send Islamonuts to Guantanamo? The Euro-peons call it "torture." Go after the terrorist Saddam Hussein in Iraq? The Euro-peons call it a "war crime." Now we find out that representatives of the EU, the Euro-peon "Union," actually went to the Palestinian thugocracy in 2002 and told Hamas, the mass murdering group, that it had Euro-peon backing and support:
EU shocker: Hamas are 'freedom fighters'
A top European Union official held a secret meeting in Gaza with the leaders of Hamas, in spite of EU denials to the contrary, in which he praised the terror organization's work, blamed terrorism on "Israeli occupation," referred to Hamas militants as "freedom fighters" and failed to contradict claims Israel was responsible for the September 11 attacks, according to transcripts of the conversation obtained by WorldNetDaily.
There were some leaked reports of the 2002 meeting, but the transcripts for the first time expose what was discussed with Hamas and may shed light on various aspects of EU Mideast diplomacy.
The transcripts, seized from the Palestinian Authority Preventive Security compound in Gaza during Israel's 2002 Defensive Shield operation and released through Israel's Center for Special Studies, document a discreet meeting between Hamas leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, who was assassinated by Israel in March 2004, and Alistair Crooke, the security adviser for Miguel Moratinos, then EU special envoy for promoting the peace process in the Middle East.
Just who is Alistair Crooke? Check out this alleged "lecture" he gave in March 2005...I just love the title and all of its implications:
"It is Essential to Negotiate with Terrorists"
My sincere wish is that Mr. Crooke and his entire family are on the next bus, train or plane that is destroyed by terrorists. Then he can try to negotiate with them like he says.

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals finally did something right: they upheld a Florida law denying felons the right to vote for their lifetimes. Downtrodden Party regulars and officials were probably praying for the reversal of the law, because that would mean tens of thousands of votes for their side, just like this upstanding citizen:
Federal Appeals Court Upholds Florida Ban on Ex-Felons Voting
MIAMI (AP) - A federal appeals court in Atlanta on Tuesday upheld Florida's 160-year-old law enforcing a lifetime ban on voting rights for convicted felons.
Ex-felons sued in 2000 to get their voting rights restored when their sentences are finished, instead of having to apply through a complex system for civil rights restoration. Many never apply or don't complete the process.
As Downies should say: Darn, darn, darn, darn.
Never tell a liberal that you like high taxes - it makes them feel like they can accomplish something if only they could take more of what you earn. But I never knew that liberals have teamed with monkeys to find this out:
The real secret to happiness: higher taxes
According to monkeys, high taxes can make us work less and live more, writes Ross Gittins.
This proves what I have been trying to say all along: that liberals are evolutionarily deluded. I only feel bad seeing someone tie poor monkeys into their sick ideology.
Never let it be said that Jackie Chirac has a problem kissing the asscheeks of Islamic dictators - first he played footsie with Saddam Hussein, even supplying him a nuclear reactor before Israel attacked it and blew it up, and now he is trying to make sure Iran gets a nuke before long. How fucking stupid is Chirac? Very fucking stupid, apparently. He is not just a crook - he is a megalolunatic.
Chirac pushes EU to drop hard line on Iran-diplomats
VIENNA, April 13 (Reuters) - French President Jacques Chirac has been pushing the EU to drop its refusal to consider letting Iran enrich uranium, despite U.S. and European fears Iran could use enrichment technology for weapons, EU diplomats say.
But the talks took a new turn last month when negotiators from the EU's "big three" (EU3) and the office of EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana agreed in Paris to consider an Iranian proposal that it keep a small-scale enrichment programme that would be closely monitored by the U.N. nuclear watchdog.
Several diplomats said this shift -- which came just after Washington bolstered the EU position by offering its own incentives if Tehran scrapped enrichment -- was mainly the result of pressure by Chirac, who pushed the French Foreign Ministry to drop its refusal to consider Iran's plan.
"Jacques Chirac ... is the one who's taking the Iranian proposal under consideration," said an EU3 diplomat, adding the French president had the final say on foreign policy matters.
Jackie Chirac is a danger to the entire world. This man must be marginalized here and around the world and removed from office as soon as is humanly possible.

If one listens to liberals long enough, one will hear conspiracy theories for everything from why Hitler came to power to how 9/11 occurred - and they will make sure George W. Bush is somehow responsible for all of it. Their twisted thinking leads them to turn the most inane story into a conspiracy; for instance, did you know that Karl Rove contacted Usama bin Laden and got him to make a videotape days before the 2004 election so that John Kerry would lose the election? That is the liberal explanation for why bin Laden released his tape which probably did cost Kerry the presidency. And before you say "well, these stories come from delusional people. They are NOT in the mainstream," you should know that the Rove/video story comes from no less a doofus luminary than Walter Cronkite. So much for "not in the mainstream." Maybe not in the American mainstream, but definitely in the pantheon of Downie mainstream lunacy.
So, it comes as no surprise that a German leftwing looniepie now believes and is peddling the following crackpot story: that George W. Bush exposed the Church pedophile scandal to weaken an already sickened Pope John Paul II because the Pope opposed the war in Iraq. Understand this logic? And somehow by this, Bush got Poland to send troops to Iraq. Now, if you can follow this, good luck to you:
Trans-Atlantic Conspiracy Theory Du Jour
She may not be the country's most powerful politician, but as the vice-president of the Bundestag, Germany's parliament, Antje Vollmer of the Green Party is one of its highest-ranking women in political office. When she talks, people listen. But last week we were a little baffled when we saw her shameless contribution to the growing canon of anti-American conspiracy theories and baseless analogies circulating in Germany.
First, in Sept. 2002, then-Justice Minister Herta Däubler-Gmelin compared George W. Bush to Adolf Hitler. Then came Andreas von Buelow, the former federal education and research minister whose 2003 conspiracy theory alleging the CIA and Israeli intelligence were responsible for the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington made for a best-selling book. Now Vollmer comes along, implying that the US government chose to draw attention to the Catholic pedophilia scandal not because of the crimes in and of themselves, but because Washington wanted to weaken the pope.
The dumb liberals will probably hold this woman up as the example of rational thought. It provides all the more proof that liberals should not be in power anywhere.
Bobby Tyrd (D-KKK) of West Virginia ("soon to be called `Bobby Tyrd Land'") has been making an utter fool of himself as of late, cavorting with the likes of Mooreon.org and crying that ending his precious filibuster will be the end of the country as we know it. Fortunately, Tyrd is enough of a pedantic old fart that he doesn't realize that when people say things they get recorded and remembered years later - and Tyrd is stunned because he has no memory of what he did this morning, much less years ago. And when he was Majority Leader (those sickening years of woe when Downies did control something) Tyrd made it a point to try to get rid of the filibuster - because the minority was trying to stop what the majority wanted to do with 40 votes instead of 50. Now that Tyrd is in the minority, that filibuster is something he wants to keep - and he decries the end of the America if the Republicans get rid of it for judicial nominations only:
The Byrd precedent is for the birds
What do the deregulation of natural gas, the attachment of legislative amendments to appropriations bills, a defense authorization bill and the nomination of a U.S. ambassador to El Salvador have in common?
Answer: They all were resolved by a simple majority vote in the U.S. Senate under procedures altered by then-Majority Leader Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.).
And now the crafty Byrd is rewriting history. He recently denounced Republican consideration of a parliamentary maneuver designed to clear the way for a simple majority vote on President George W. Bush's judicial nominees.
In blasting the GOP's so- called "nuclear option," Byrd invoked Hitler, Nazi Germany and Mussolini's Italy - drawing condemnation from Jewish leaders.
Beyond Byrd's rhetoric, now a staple among the Howard Dean-led Democrats, it is worth noting that Byrd is condemning Republicans for considering using a tactic that he himself used four times during his tenure as majority leader. And he is hardly alone in showing hypocrisy on the issue. Various other Democratic senators are now decrying potential tactics they have approved in the past.
The facts on Byrd's hypocrisy are made clear in a recently published article in the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, "The Constitutional Option to Change Senate Rules and Procedures: A Majoritarian Means to Overcome the Filibuster."
In their analysis, authors Martin A. Gold and Dimple Gupta detail how Byrd, from 1979 to 1987, initiated four precedents that allowed a simple majority to change Senate procedures.
Check out what Factcheck.org said about the filibuster controversy and why liberals are liars of the worst sort:
A Fictional View of the Filibuster
A $5-million TV ad campaign by People for the American Way portrays the Senate filibuster as a noble tool of American democracy. The ad uses footage from Frank Capra's classic 1939 movie "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" - a famous scene in which the hero, played by James Stewart, engages in a 23-hour filibuster to prevent his expulsion from the US Senate on trumped-up corruption charges.
Real-life filibusters are another matter, however. They can be used for good or evil. In fact, segregationist Southern senators used filibusters to preserve the poll tax and block civil rights and anti-lynching legislation for generations. Among the real-life practitioners were the late Senators Strom Thurmond of South Carolina and Theodore Bilbo of Mississippi.
And check out of the side of the article a letter from "Ralph" Neas, one of the most disgusting liberals who tries to derail every conservative jurist from being confirmed, and how Factcheck found his claims riddled with "misleading" statements. Whoa! A liberal trying to mislead people? Stop the presses!
The Downies are in a hole here and they know it. And poor KKKer Tyrd is now so old he there is a danger of his becoming a laughingstock like the rest of his ridiculous party. The voters of West Virginia need to send him packing - preferably to a nursing home he probably had paid for with federal funds and named after himself.
The MSM in America is amazing - when it finds "ethics violations" of a Republican, it goes for the kill to end the person's career. If they hear about ethics violations of a Downie, they either become tone deaf or concentrate on more important matters - like bus schedules out of Des Moines, Iowa, in February.
So when the story about Nancy Pelosi (D-Deer Caught in Headlights) and her problems with her own ethics came about, what did the media concentrate on? Calling attention to Tom DeLay of Texas.
FEC Fines Pelosi Committees as Result ot NLPC Complaint; Hypocrisy of “Reformer” Exposed
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has fined two leadership PACs associated with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in response to a Complaint filed by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) on October 25, 2002. The FEC also has fined three campaigns that failed to return excessive contributions from Pelosi’s PACs within 60 days, as required by law.
Under conciliation agreements reached with the FEC, Pelosi’s two committees — PAC to the Future and Team Majority — will pay $21,000. Julie Thomas for Congress Campaign Committee (D–IA) and Van Hollen for Congress (D–MD) will each pay $2,500, and Joe Turnham for Congress (D–AL) will pay $2,000. The three campaigns also agreed to disgorge $5,000 each to the U.S. Treasury.
In its Complaint, NLPC alleged that Pelosi violated federal election law by operating two “leadership” political action committees (PACs) in order to circumvent contribution limits. Members of the Democrat and Republican leaderships in the House and Senate may legally have one so-called leadership PAC in addition to their own campaign committee. The purpose of leadership PACs is to make contributions to the campaigns of other Congressional candidates.
NLPC’s Complaint cited a second circumvention of the law, that of the limits on amounts donors may give to PACs. Team Majority, the newer PAC, reported sixteen contributions of $5,000 each from donors who also gave the maximum to Pelosi’s other PAC. Five of the donors gave to both PACs on the same day.
The MSM's reaction to this story? More investigations of Tom DeLay. So typical.
You would think that 30 years after Watergate, government leaders around the world would learn a simple lesson: that taking or giving kickbacks and then trying to cover up the scandal is a fool's game which always ends with the government being thrown out of office. And now it goes with Canada, and their Alleged Prime Minister, Paul Martin, who succeeded the lowlife scumbag Jean "Potsmoker" Chrétien. Paulie Boy has been caught with his precarious government's hand in the till, and now he is on the outs. Martin's Liberal Party barely won elections last year, and needed help from the Socialist Party (never a good sign) to stay in control of the government. But now the dyke has burst, and Martin's days as PM are numbered:
Liberals Scramble to Prevent Collapse of Government Amid Party Kickback Scandal
OTTAWA, Canada (AP) - Prime Minister Paul Martin scrambled Monday to prevent the fall of his government amid a kickback scandal in his Liberal Party, as a new poll showed the opposition Conservatives would easily win fresh elections if held today.
In what some say is Canada's version of Watergate, in terms of magnitude and potential damage, Martin reiterated that he had nothing to do with the ethics fiasco, in which party members are accused of having taken kickbacks from advertising agencies hired to promote federalism in the rebellious French-speaking province of Quebec.
Ouch! And now some Canadian polls are showing that Martin's party is polling historic lows in popularity:
Liberal government scrambling to avoid defeat
The flames of political discontent from the sponsorship scandal are scorching the Liberals, and now a new poll shows the party's national support falling to 27 per cent.
That represents a 10 percentage-point drop in the past two months, according to an Ipsos-Reid poll conducted for CTV and The Globe and Mail.
The Conservatives are up to 30 per cent, a four-point rise. The NDP are at 19 per cent.
In Quebec, where Liberal gains would be crucial to any hope of forming a future majority government, the Grits trail the sovereigntist Bloc Quebecois by 30 points -- 48 to 18.
But the Liberals are down in virtually every region, and are statistically tied with the Conservatives in vote-rich Ontario.
It is always good news when Liberals are in deep political trouble...so Joobo is very, very pleased with these developments. Pleased indeed!
The beginning of the end of the Liberal reign in Canada may be sooner than anyone expects...the end for the Downies in the United States came when some of their more conservative members flew the coop for another party as they saw their political futures elsewhere. So goes it in Canada, where a Liberal member on the outs with his party is thinking of hopping ship - and causing the whole government to collapse anyway for lack of a majority:
O'Brien wooed by Tories; The London-Fanshawe MP is fed up with the Liberals and says he's close to defecting
London-Fanshawe MP Pat O'Brien said yesterday he's close to defecting from the governing Liberals and may join the Conservatives who have been courting him and other backbenchers. "The Liberal party is starting to look like the NDP-light," O'Brien said in an interview. "I don't know if I can even vote for the Liberal party . . . How can I represent it?"
A schism over social issues has widened to a chasm over plans by the Liberals to allow same-sex marriage.
"This is not the same party I joined. If the party has left me then maybe it's time to acknowledge it," O'Brien said.
It is amazing - you heard the same kind of words from Downies who could no longer stand to be in that party, and jumped to the Republicans. It brought a wave of Republican rule in DC that continues to this day.
We at Joobo Online will keep an eye on this story - we are already purchasing party favors for the day when Paul Martin and the Liberals are swept from power and a pro-American government is in control in Ottawa.

The Europeons have not ceased since September 11, 2001, to find ways to criticize the United States for cracking down on Islamic terrorism around the world. Arrest Muslim fanatics? Europeons yelp. Send Islamofascists to Guantanamo Bay where they are treated with the utmost respect? The Europeons scream torture. Invade Iraq to get one of the world's worst terrorists, Saddam Hussein? The Europeons march and denounce President Bush.
So it should come as no surprise that Europeon courts are acquitting Muslim terrorists who are planning attacks on Europeon targets - because they haven't done anything wrong yet:
Two Failed Terrorism Trials Raise Worry in Europe
BERLIN (Reuters) - Failed terrorism prosecutions in Germany and the Netherlands this week have highlighted Europe's patchy record in securing convictions and prompted some to ask if laws need to be tightened.
Ihsan Garnaoui, a 34-year-old Tunisian, was acquitted in Berlin Wednesday of trying to form a terrorist group, even though judges considered it proven that he had planned to carry out at least one bomb attack in Germany at the start of the Iraq war in March 2003.
The same day, Dutch teen-ager Samir Azzouz was cleared of planning attacks on Amsterdam's Schiphol airport, a nuclear reactor and government offices.
He had been found in possession of machinegun cartridges, mock explosive devices, electrical circuitry, maps and sketches of prominent buildings and chemicals prosecutors said could be bomb ingredients.
Legal experts and security analysts said such cases raise a difficult question: in the absence of an actual attack, how close must a suspect be to detonating a bomb before prosecutors can demonstrate guilt?
When an Islamic attack against Europe comes - and be sure that it will, sooner rather than later - I personally hope someone stands up and says, "You got what you deserved - for being so damn ignorant to the threat that was so obvious, yet one you wished to ignore."
Expert: Airport shoe removal invites fungus
MILWAUKEE - Cecil Fox will not take off his socks - or his shoes - when passing through airport security.
The retired director of the Molecular Histology Lab at the National Institutes of Health is concerned that thousands of Americans are being exposed to infectious fungi - such as the ones that cause athlete's foot - as they trod, shoeless, through airport metal detectors.
The damn terrorists did this. Now they are infecting us with athlete's foot. That is the last time I will ever fly!
Of course, after the hilarious campaign for President that John Kerry (D-Delusionalland) ran in 2004, as well as his years of saying nothing, doing nothing, and standing for the same, he already can be counted as a whiny, slithering scumbag. But it is what he is saying after the dust has settled - that he peddled arms to the Khmer Rouge, etc. - that shows just what a scumbag he truly is. Now he comes forwards with this ridiculous story: that Republicans intimidated blacks not to vote, or to vote on the wrong date, in the 2004 election. Downies have been circulating these stories for years, with no evidence whatsoever. Of course, lack of evidence (and brains) never held liberals back from making scurrilous charges in the past; why should it now?
Kerry Alleges Intimidation of Voters in 2004
BOSTON, April 10 -- Many would-be voters in last year's presidential election were denied access to the polls through trickery and intimidation, former Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kerry told the Massachusetts League of Women Voters on Sunday.
Kerry cited examples of how people were duped into not voting. "Leaflets are handed out saying Democrats vote on Wednesday, Republicans vote on Tuesday. People are told in telephone calls that if you've ever had a parking ticket, you're not allowed to vote," he said.
What John Kerry did not realize - or obviously did not care to check up on - was that this story is a fraud which appeared in the comedic online magazine The Onion:
Republicans Urge Minorities to Get Out and Vote on Nov. 3
Read it and have a laugh. Of course, far be it for any dimwitted reporter to do two things: ask Kerry, "What proof do you have of your allegation?" and "Are you a fucking moron?"

Read the following story and tell me that this does not sound like a bad novel - or a tale straight out of the disturbed thoughts of a lunatic. The first part of the story is tragic: a 75 year old woman was stabbed to death in a horrific attack in Berkeley, California, apparently by a mentally disturbed woman. But it is the rest of the story, as Paul Harvey says, that makes one shake their head. The suspect was not alone - she was with a mental health worker who witnessed the crime but did not try to stop it, did not call for help or call the police to tell them what had happened:
County employee charged in slashing
OAKLAND — A mental health worker present when a teenage girl slashed the throat of an elderly Berkeley woman last month has been charged as an accessory to attempted murder, and further investigation could lead to more criminal counts against her, authorities said Tuesday.
Berkeley police attempted to arrest Hamaseh Kianfar, 30, at her Marin County home Tuesday, but she was not there. Sources said negotiations were under way between authorities and Kianfar's attorney for her surrender.
A no-bail warrant has been issued for Kianfar's arrest, and she could turn herself in as early as today, authorities said.
Her attorney, Laurel Headley, who is based in Emeryville, declined to comment on the case.
Kianfar works part time in the guidance center at Alameda County Juvenile Hall and for unknown reasons was walking with 16-year-old Marilyn Webster when, authorities say, the teenager pulled out a knife and slashed the throat of a 75-year-old woman the evening of March 16.
Webster was arrested two days after the attack and charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon. Sources said that while she was being held at Alameda County Juvenile Hall, Webster called the throat slashing a "feasting" ritual. Sources said feasting is the consumption of human blood.
This is one of the most upsetting cases of a lack of human compassion I have heard about in some time. That it comes from Berkeley, the home of sickening liberalism, surprises me not.

When Bill Clinton was President, some rightwing nutties called for his assassination - and the FBI came down on them like a ton of bricks, as they should. No matter who is President, or whether you like them or hate them - we must NEVER call for the assassination of the President of the United States, especially in the times of terrorism that we are living in.
That is what makes this decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, known as the "Lunatic Court" because it is stocked with some of the most ridiculous lunatic liberals in the history of America to sit on a court, so outrageous. Some lowlife wrote in a letter that George W. Bush should "die" - and he was punished for this. But the 9th Circuit whackjobs said that this loon's threats are now protected speech and cannot be punished:
Man's Conviction for Threatening Bush Nixe
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals court Friday overturned an inmate's conviction for writing a crude, rambling letter endorsing President Bush's death at the hands of terrorists — two weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
The letter from Oregon State Penitentiary prisoner Jonathan Lincoln, who was charged with threatening the president and given an 18-month sentence last year, read, in part: "You will die too George W Bush real Soon they Promised That you would Long Live Bin Laden."
Corrections officials intercepted the letter; Lincoln had been serving a 46-month sentence for robbery.
A unanimous three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the letter was protected under the First Amendment, calling it "Lincoln's crude and offensive method of stating a political opposition to the president." The court noted "such political hyperbole does not constitute a 'threat."'
The decision reversed a ruling by Judge James A. Redden, who tried the case without a jury. Redden ruled the letter constituted a "true threat" when combined with statements Lincoln made six months earlier to a Secret Service agent that he wanted to assassinate the president.
Lincoln's attorney, Michael Levine, said his client was mentally disabled. He was released from prison last month and lives in a Portland, Ore., halfway house.
Frank Noonan, the Justice Department attorney who prosecuted Lincoln, did not immediately return calls for comment.
Based on this decision, it is now "free speech" to threaten the President. I bet that Downies are cheering this decision. I only hope they see how foolish they are that such "free speech" should be allowed in a country such as ours, especially in a time of war.

Uh, yeah. Right. Uh-huh. Yup. Hmm.
Galactic pancake mystery solved
Astronomers have figured out why a series of small galaxies surrounding the Milky Way are distributed around it in the shape of a pancake.
And here I thought it was all in the Syrup Galaxy.
The Rocky Mountain News in Colorado did a study, and they find that John Kerry, the Downtrodden candidate for President, should have won based on geography. That's right - Poor Johnny lost because too many people bucked the trend and voted for his opponent. Yikes!
Study suggests geography favored Kerry
U.S. Sen. John Kerry was favored to win the 2004 presidential election, according to a geographic analysis.
"Kerry got more of his votes in the right places," said Ron Johnston, of the School of Geographic Sciences at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom.
"Geography was working for him. If he had done a little better in three or four states, he would have beaten Bush in the Electoral College."
Johnston's comments were part of his presentation of his paper on "Electoral Bias and the Electoral College" at the Association of American Geographers conference in Denver on Thursday.
His argument was that a deciding factor in the outcome of elections, especially in the U.S. with its Electoral College system, was vote efficiency.
Based on this study, Bob Dole should have won in 1996, Mike Dukakis should have won in 1988, and Walter Mondale should have won in 1984.
Studies like this should be thrown right into the trash bin, because all they are is pure crap.

It is not hard to find assholes in Canada - the whole country is chock full of them, from their Prime Minister on down. A country that runs on making sure gays marry and that everyone has enough pot to keep them forever stoned while allowing unnamed terrorists to seek asylum is a shithole in my book. So when I hear that more dimwitted Canadians try to intervene in America I am not surprised.
Now steps forward "LAW" (Lawyers Against War) and their silly leaders trying to get President Bush indicted for "war crimes." This group should be "MWP" ("Men Without Penises") because they are all dickless twerps.
Lawyers Against the War are After Bush
Gail Davidson, Co-Chair of Lawyers against the War (LAW) has laid seven torture charges against U. S. President George W. Bush. If Davidson, a Vancouver, Canada based-lawyer and her organization have their way President Bush will be tried in Canada on these charges. The charges were laid when President Bush visited Canada on November 30, 2004. These charges concern the well-known abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, photos of which shocked the world last year, as well as similar abuses at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba that have emerged more recently.
I have one thing to say to these assholes: UP YOURS.
Imagine if they took a poll and no one noticed. The Washington Times reports the findings of a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll showing more Americans than ever before now oppose any form of gay marriage - a number growing steadily. So, you would ask the first question: where is this story being posted since The Washington Times is reporting the story? Here is the story, and, following, the cover-up by the MSM:
More Americans oppose gay 'marriage,' poll finds
Public opposition to "marriages" between homosexuals is at an all-time high, according to a poll released yesterday.
When asked whether they thought same-sex "marriages" should be recognized by the law as valid and come with the same rights as traditional marriages, 68 percent of the respondents in the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll said they should not.
Twenty-eight percent said same-sex "marriages" should be valid and 4 percent had no opinion. The survey of 443 adults was conducted March 18 to 20.
Now, I went to the USA Today website and the CNN website to get more information on this poll. Unfortunately, CNN has chosen to ignore the findings of a poll they have commissioned. So, I went to USA Today...surely they would have a note, right? Well, they have no news on this, either.
So, one could ask, perhaps the poll is so new that it hasn't been posted yet, right? Again, it was conducted from March 18-20. Three weeks in the news business is forever.
So, we can conclude three things from this story: 1) Gay marriage is becoming more unpopular amongst the American people; 2) CNN and USA Today conducted a poll and didn't like the findings so are ignoring it; and 3) if a poll comes out showing gay marriage becoming more popular be expected to see it posted on these sites 15 seconds after the results are in.
The liberal media in America are shameless. Simply shameless.
Newsmax.com is reporting that Kofi Annan, Chief Crook of the Disunited Nations, has hired Clinton impeachment scumbag Greg Craig as his attorney in case he is indicted regarding his thievery in the Oil-for-Food scandal.
The liberals like to circulate the same pieces of shit, eh?
Annan Retains Noted Criminal Attorney
NewsMax has learned that U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan has privately retained the services of celebrated Washington criminal defense attorney Greg Craig. The Annan move was first disclosed in a filing with the Paul Volcker panel released last month. The fomer Fed chairman currently heads an "independent" investigation into the activities of the scandal plagued U.N.-Iraq Oil-for-Food Program.
Craig is perhaps best known for his defense of Bill Clinton during his Senate impeachment trial in 1999.
Craig also defended the Communist father of Elian Gonzalez, the little Cuban boy forced back into slavery by Hermaphroditic Attorney General Janet Reno.
How these people sleep at night is beyond me.

Yup, you heard it here first...in a vote held somewhere, deceased and stone cold deadnik North Korean leader Kim Il-Sung, father of current NK nutjob Kim Jong-Il, who rated as one of the wackiest world dictators next to Muammar el-Qadaffi or Fidel Castro or even his Chia pet lookalike son, was chosen as the greatest world leader ever. That's right - not Ronald Reagan, not Franklin Delano Whitebread, not anyone else, but Kim Il-Sung! And the announcement is so...so...well, so whacked out:
Kim Il Sung Praised as Greatest Leader
Pyongyang, April 4 (KCNA) -- President Kim Il Sung is the greatest leader recognized by the revolutionary people of the world, said Fayez Ismail, general secretary of the Socialist Unionist Party of Syria, on March 29 in a statement released on the occasion of the Day of the Sun. He said that Kim Il Sung achieved the historic cause of liberating the country and turned the DPRK into a modern socialist powerful country and actively supported the progressive people of the world in their anti-imperialist revolutionary cause.
Noting that thanks to leader Kim Jong Il who has inherited the idea and virtue of the President, the revolutionary cause of Juche has made continued victories despite the upheavals of the present complicated international situation, the general secretary expressed firm conviction that the friendly Korean people would achieve final victory as they hold the great leader in high esteem and are guided by his great idea.
What the announcement didn't say was that Kim should be praised for turning North Korea into an international shithole that happens to have nuclear weapons while its people eat dirt and grass to stay alive. And his son continues the good progressive work of his father. Now that is socialist progress!

Tuesday, Kansas voters approved a ban on gay marriage, 69% to 31%. This is now 18th state where voters had this issue before them, and the 18th where it passed. States where voters defeated a ban on gay marriage? Zero.
Kansas Voters Approve Gay Nups Ban
Voters in Kansas overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment banning same-sex couples from marrying or entering into civil unions.
With more than half of precincts reporting Tuesday, 276,876 votes, or 69 percent, were cast in favor of a constitutional amendment, with 121,836 votes, or 31 percent, opposed.
The country is now split, between the pro-courts party (Downies) and the pro-people party (Republicans). When an issue of great importance needs to be decided, look to see which party goes where to see where it will ultimately end up.
THIS DAY IN DOWNTRODDEN PARTY HISTORY...
April 5, 2001: The Downie leadership in the US Congress, finding itself in control no where in Washington, D.C., votes to move to Burundi. House Minority Leader "Dick" Gephardt calls on 30 Republicans to change party affiliations so he can be Speaker of the House. Former President Bill Clinton attacks a woman on the street who he believes motioned to him to go to her hotel room and ravish her.
Please stay tuned for our next installment of: THIS DATE IN DOWNTRODDEN PARTY HISTORY!

Perhaps one of the worst western Governors in Janet Napolitano, a Downie who has raised taxes and run roughshod over her state in ways that are too numerous to document. But now she has crossed the line: she has vetoed a measure which would make voters show identification when voting. And why, you ask, would Napolitano do this? Because, as I have said it before my fair readers, Downies would be overwhelmed and not win any more elections if fraud were eliminated from American voting. In short, Napolitano wants to keep her and her silly party's chances of actually running anything alive.
Governor vetoes bill requiring all voters to show identification
PHOENIX - Gov. Janet Napolitano vetoed legislation Friday to bar some people who show up at the polls without identification from voting.
Napolitano said the measure, Senate Bill 1118, is illegal because it violates the federal Help America Vote Act. She said that "could result in properly registered Arizona citizens being denied the right to vote."
Republican Secretary of State Jan Brewer said the Democratic governor is wrong.
She said nothing in federal law requires that anyone who shows up at a poll without identification be given a ballot.
Brewer also accused Napolitano of ignoring the wishes of the more than 1 million Arizonans who voted in November for Proposition 200. Among the provisions of that initiative is a requirement for identification before casting a ballot.
Republicans need to challenge this deluded woman, and in 2006, when she is up for re-election, find a candidate who stands for America, Americans, and for fraud-free elections and remove her from office.
When President Bush named John Bolton, a critic of the Disunited Nations, as the US Ambassador to that
Then the liberals decided to get 60 morons to sign a letter to the US Senate asking that Bolton be denied confirmation. This made news in the MSM, because that proved to dumb liberals that they had some power in Washington when in fact they have none. So of course the media basically ignored it when 66 former government officials signed a letter supporting Bolton's nomination.
Former U.S. Officials Show Support for U.N. Nominee
Former defense secretary Caspar W. Weinberger, ex-CIA director R. James Woolsey and 64 other retired arms control specialists and diplomats are lined up in support of John R. Bolton, whose nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations has stirred controversy.
In a letter being delivered today to Sen. Richard G. Lugar (R-Ind.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, other committee members and congressional leaders, they said the attack on Bolton is really an attack on President Bush's policies.
Bolton will be confirmed, unless the Downies in the Senate do something dumb like filibuster the nomination. Of course, the Downies have never failed to do dumb things in the past, so I am never surprised of anything they try to do.
However, Joobo's prediction is that Bolton will be confirmed, and one more liberal target of their hatred and wrath will get past them.
