Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the fruity nutcake leader of Iran, says that he is against English words being used in his crazy psychotic country, and has come up with a new language to get around their usage.
Ahmadinejad bans use of foreign words in Farsi
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has ordered government and cultural bodies to use the modified Persian words instead of foreign words, turning pizzas into "elastic loaves," official and domestic media reported on Saturday.
The presidential decree, issued earlier this week, orders all governmental agencies, newspapers and publications to use words deigned more appropriate by the official language watchdog, the Farhangestan Zaban e Farsi or Persian Academy, the Irna official news agency reported.
The academy has introduced more than 2,000 words as alternatives for some of the foreign words that have crept into the Farsi vocabulary, mostly western. The government is less sensitive about Arabic words, because the Koran is written in Arabic.
Among other changes, "short talk" is the alternative to "chat" while a "cabin" will be renamed a "small room," according to official Web site of the academy.
We here at Joobo have gotten our hands on some of the more important words to be used by Iranians in the future. Here is the old word, followed by the new word to be used:
Bomb - Islamic Party Device
Goat - Sex Toy
Women - House Slaves
Jew - Islamic Party Device Victim
Intelligence - What's intelligence?
Moron - President Ahmadinejad
Supermoron - Muslim Sympathizer

We here at Joobo agree with someone like Peter Beinert of The New Republic once every millenium. But his column just a few days ago in The Washington Post nailed the Left for being sickening panderers.
Pander and Run
After years of struggling to define their own approach to post-Sept. 11 foreign policy, Democrats seem finally to have hit on one. It's called pandering. In those rare cases when George W. Bush shows genuine sensitivity to America's allies and propounds a broader, more enlightened view of the national interest, Democrats will make him pay. It's jingoism with a liberal face.
The latest example came this week when Democratic senators and House members demanded that Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki either retract his criticisms of Israel or forfeit his chance to address Congress. Great idea. Maliki -- who runs a government propped up by U.S. troops -- is desperate to show Iraqis that he is not Washington's puppet. And the United States desperately needs him to succeed because, unless he gains political credibility at home, his government will have no hope of surviving on its own.
Then, after lambasting the Downies in Congress and their lack of any policy whatsoever, Beinert hits them right in the genitalia:
Privately, some Democrats, while admitting that they haven't exactly been taking the high road, say they have no choice, that in a competition with Karl Rove, nice guys finish last. But even politically, that's probably wrong. The Democratic Party's single biggest foreign policy liability is not that Americans think Democrats are soft. It is that Americans think Democrats stand for nothing, that they have no principles beyond political expedience. And given the party's behavior over the past several months, it is not hard to understand why.
We have one word for Beinert's attack on his fellow liberals: Ouch.

The Chicago City Council has voted to FORCE companies that have over $1 billion in sales to pay their workers $10.00 an hour - no matter what their job, or what their contract says.
Now, imagine this: we have a city council of a major American city telling certain companies what they must pay their workers.
Socialism rears its ugly head once again. How do we squash it?
Chicago Council Passes 'Living Wage' Act
The City Council brushed aside warnings from Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to approve an ordinance that makes Chicago the biggest city in the nation to require big-box retailers to pay a "living wage."
The ordinance, which passed 35-14 Wednesday after three hours of impassioned debate, requires mega-retailers to pay wages of at least $10 an hour plus $3 in fringe benefits by mid-2010. It would only apply to companies with more than $1 billion in annual sales and stores of at least 90,000 square feet.
"It's trying to get the largest companies in America to pay decent wages," Alderman Toni Preckwinkle said.
The minimum wage in Illinois is $6.50 an hour and the federal minimum is $5.15.
Mayor Richard M. Daley and others warned the living wage proposal would drive jobs and desperately needed development from some of the city's poorest neighborhoods and lead giants like Wal-Mart to abandon the city.
He hasn't indicated whether he will veto the measure; it takes 34 votes to override a veto.
"This (ordinance) imposes special interest mandates that will unfairly deny savings and job opportunities to those who need them most," Michael Lewis, Wal-Mart's senior vice president of store operations, said in a statement. "It's wrong for the City Council to tell the people of Chicago where to shop and to make it harder for inner-city residents to find jobs."
Wal-Mart should answer Chicago by closing every store in the area covered by the city council. When the jobs dry up and head for the suburbs, maybe all of those soon-to-be unemployed can turn to those high-fallutin' leftists on the city council and ask for their "living wage" to come from welfare.
Lesson: Don't let liberals run economic systems. They impose socialist horseshit every time.

Iran has now become the main focus of Islamic terror in the world - everything emanates from Tehran. Funding, propaganda, everything - it is coming from Iran.
MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, posted a lovely interview with some Iranian lowlife named Mohsen Rezai, the former Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, in which he makes claims too hilarious to contemplate.
For instance, he warns what could happen if Hezbollah's "patience" runs out.
Mohsen Rezai, Iranian Expediency Council Secretary and Former Commander of Iran Revolutionary Guards: If Hizbullah's Patience Runs Out There Will Be Chaos in Tel Aviv; Ms. Rice Should Be Tried as First Female War Criminal; The Legal Experts of the Islamic World Should Prepare Some Kind of Legal Action Against Her
"If Hizbullah's patience runs out and it enters a new phase, the war will change dramatically. First of all, there will be chaos in Tel Aviv, as well as in many cities between Haifa and Tel Aviv. There are atomic and chemical arsenals right between Haifa and Tel Aviv, and there might be problems there. An unexpected situation might develop. So far, Hizbullah has demonstrated manliness, restraint, and humanitarianism. But as of yesterday, they began attacking the towns and villages south of the Litani like madmen, and I don't know what will happen in the days to come."
"In my opinion, it would be best if the legal experts of the Islamic world prepare some kind of legal action against Ms. Rice. I think this lady is the first ever female war criminal, and she should be brought to trial. She has explicitly declared - and I think this was a political mistake by her - that she is giving Israel a free hand to attack Lebanon. This in itself is enough to prepare a case against her as a war criminal."
Well, there we have it.
Hezbollah, a terrorist organization which kills without a second's notice, is demonstrating "manliness, restraint, and humanitarianism."
And this is why Islam needs to be fought, contained, and wiped out wherever possible.
The imbecilic fruitpies at DUmmies Underground, one of the silliest and sickening leftwing sites on the internet, have admitted that many of them suffer from "severe mental illness."
Note that this comes as some sort of surprise. Not to us it doesn't.
Poll question: How many in GD dealing with severe mental illness in their home?
I know that the Andrea Yates decision has profoundly affected me and I wanted to ask, who here in GD deals with severe mental illness and / or our dangerously dysfunctional system in some way?
Discovering and surviving and learning to negotiate severe mental illness in my family changed my life in a profound way -- not the least of which, it changed the way I am active in the community and in especial, in the political community.
That anyone who thinks the way the Left does suffers from "severe mental illness" is not surprising. We need to move on from there, and get these obviously sick people some help.
We think that institutionalization for a good 20-30 years, where they are away from the rest of the human race, is a good start.

Cindy Sheehan, the "Piece of Shit Mom" (POSM) is now in a "blue funk" over Israel attacking and killing Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon.
The wench does not despair about the victims of terrorism - only the terrorists themselves. And only when the terrorists are killing Jews.
This could be why one of her good friends is anti-Semite and KKK member David Duke.
I have been in such a blue funk of depression and worry since Israel's over-reaction -- or "over action" in Lebanon in what seems to be insanity escalating out of control. What our media and some world leaders seem to expediently forget is that Israel massacred an entire family on a beach in Lebanon with a rocket and kidnapped two Palestinian citizens before Hezbollah and Hamas kidnapped some Israeli soldiers. Who started the cycle of violence in those countries? Who knows? Who cares! The important question is: who is going to be the courageous one(s) with integrity, wisdom and compassion that is going to at long last stop the absurdity?
As hard as I may try, I cannot wrap my mind around the fanatical rhetoric coming out of DC and from all over the world and the mindless and seemingly overwhelming support of Israel's right to "defend itself." What Israel is doing in Lebanon by killing hundreds of innocent civilians in a relatively short period of time is like the US defending itself from the tens of thousands of innocent babies, women and children in Iraq. It is morally reprehensible and just an extension of BushCo's campaign to enrich the voracious war profiteers.
More leftist thinking: if Israel kills Islamic terrorists, it must be George W. Bush's fault.
The POSM sums up her sick and demented way of thinking in just one paragraph:
I have felt so helpless in the face of such unwarranted carnage, calamity, and sorrow. I have felt hopeless that anything I do can even alleviate the suffering of one person. I am helplessly hoping that the people of the world will join me and rise up to say a collective: "In God's (Allah's---whatever's) name: enough is more than enough, already!"
When a leftist starts quoting Allah, you know where they are headed.

In another stunning ruling from a liberal state court, the Washington State Supreme Court held today that only the legislature and/or a vote of the people can institute gay marriage in that state - and this comes after the state legislature enacted a "Defense of Marriage" act to define marriage as that between one man and one woman.
Thus, breaking news: even liberal courts cannot find a reason to uphold gay marriage.
Wash. 5-4 decision turns back ‘gay marriage'
OLYMPIA, Wash. (BP)--In a long-anticipated decision, the Washington state Supreme Court today refused to legalize "gay marriage," saying that the issue is one for the legislature or the citizens -- and not the courts -- to decide.
The 5-4 ruling is the second major loss for homosexual activists within the past month. In early July, New York's highest court also refused to legalize "same-sex marriage."
Washington state Justice Barbara Madsen wrote the court's opinion, which two justices joined. Two other justices issued a concurring opinion, agreeing only in the judgment.
The court heard oral arguments in the case more than a year ago, in March 2005, and both sides had been eagerly awaiting a ruling. Two lower court judges had struck down the state's marriage laws and ordered "gay marriage" to be legalized, and those decisions were appealed.
"The two cases before us require us to decide whether the legislature has the power to limit marriage in Washington State to opposite-sex couples," Madsen wrote. "The state constitution and controlling case law compel us to answer 'yes,' and we therefore reverse the trial courts. In reaching this conclusion, we have engaged in an exhaustive constitutional inquiry and have deferred to the legislative branch as required by our tri-partite form of government."
It is plain that liberal judges do not want this hot potato in their laps, and wish to pass it on to the legislatures or state voters to settle the matter. And in every state save one - Massachusetts - these entities have all voted to make such gay marriages illegal.

The Village Voice, a far left rag which reports on the comings and goings of the shit of the planet in Greenwich Village, finally opened its eyes and found - gasp! - corruption amongst Downie pols in New York City.
How can this be, when Nancy Pelosi (D-Nutjob) told all of us that only Republicans are corrupt? How?
Home Shopping Network
In the case of the allegedly bribe-pocketing assemblywoman from East New York, Brooklyn District Attorney Joe Hynes went straight to the videotape last week as he announced her indictment.
The D.A.'s office released a TV-ready DVD containing several conversations recorded between October 2004 and November 2005 with Diane Gordon, 56, who represents one of the city's poorest sections. On the videos, Gordon is heard telling an unidentified developer exactly how big the house that she wants him to build for her should be, allegedly in return for Gordon's support of his acquisition of city-owned land worth $2 million in her district.
"Subtle this was not," commented city investigations commissioner Rose Gill Hearn, whose office launched the probe after a city housing aide reported suspicions of wrongdoing.
On the tapes, Gordon is seen seated in her office beneath a poster of Martin Luther King Jr., apparently spelling out how her support for his project was dependent on the developer building her a new home, to her precise specifications, down to the square footage of the bathrooms.
The three-term assemblywoman appears relaxed and cheerful, as though she were picking out wallpaper patterns at Janovic Plaza. "Um, can it just be a little, I was thinking, maybe a little dark like, y'know, that burgundy wood like this?" she says at one point on the tapes, tapping the desk at which she is seated.
"I want a lot of things," she tells the developer after he has politely coaxed her into spelling out her needs. "I want these things to be delivered to you where I can get the home almost for little to nothing, and I just pay the taxes. . . . And I don't want a mortgage. You know what I mean?"
Someone needs to ask Nancy Pelosi how this could have happened. It is a wonderment, we have to tell you.

The sick, perverted method of forcing women into becoming slaves in Islam known as "honor killings" is now the norm amongst Muslims in England - and even the leftwing rag The Guardian is so ashamed that they have reported on it.
'Honour' murders leave thousands of women living in fear
Thousands of young women in Britain are living in fear of the "hidden scourge" of so-called honour killing, a conference of police, Home Office staff and victim support groups was told yesterday.
An estimated 12 such killings happen in the country every year, but they represent only the extreme end of a much larger problem of intimidation and abuse.
A small minority of British Asian families deliberately use the threat of violence against supposedly erring daughters and sisters who defy agreements on suitors and marriage, the meeting in Leeds was told. A week ago, a London businesswoman's cousin and brother were jailed for life for stabbing her to death in front of two young nieces, whose own courtship and marriage arrangements might in due course have been influenced by her independent spirit.
"This distorted view of 'honour' completely constrains the lives of many unknown victims," said District Judge Marilyn Mornington, a specialist in the subject, who chaired the one-day seminar. "For every killing there are 1,000 other women living in fear for their lives."
More evidence that Islam equals fear, shame, and slavery.

We could go into the myriad ways that liberals have just become a parody of insanity and mental sickness, but instead we will let their disgusting blather merely speak for itself.
Caution: Extreme leftwing psychosis ahead.
Freepers Extinct. All Other Republicans on the Endangered Species List.
Those are some environmental headlines I'd like to see!
Every time i see a thread in the environmental group at DU that has listed another extinct or endangered species, all i can think of is how i can't wait until the republican species (they're definitely not Homo sapiens) is declared extinct.
i'm reminded of deniro's character in Taxi Driver when he says something like "one day a great rain will come and wash the scum from the face of the earth". maybe we need something of biblical proportions to rid the planet of the cancer we know as repukes. hopefully if there's a god, he's getting a plan together to do something about the filth. i just wish he'd do it soon before they destroy the whole place for all of us. i look forward to the DU thread when somebody posts about watching fox news and seeing sean hannity and bill o'reilly and neil cavuto and brit hume and ann coulter all develop boils while they're on the air. the boils build up on their wretched faced until their heads pop open and little demons fly in from thin air and suck the blood from their bleeding stumps where their heads once were. red state progressives could run outside and watch their repuke neighbors being devoured by swarms of locusts. now that would be cool!
What would be cool would be if we could pass national legislation making sure that 1) these cretins never hold any office of any substance in this country, and 2) that they not be allowed to have children, so that these demented bloodlines could die out after this generation of loons.

Betty Williams, an Irish retard who won the Nobel Peace Prize in the 1970s for calling for an end to violence in Northern Ireland, told a group of children in Australia that she wanted to "kill George Bush."
And how did the media in Australia describe this threat made against the President? One says that Williams "displayed a flash of her feisty Irish spirit."
Peace prize winner 'could kill' Bush
NOBEL peace laureate Betty Williams displayed a flash of her feisty Irish spirit yesterday, lashing out at US President George W.Bush during a speech to hundreds of schoolchildren.
Campaigning on the rights of young people at the Earth Dialogues forum, being held in Brisbane, Ms Williams spoke passionately about the deaths of innocent children during wartime, particularly in the Middle East, and lambasted Mr Bush.
"I have a very hard time with this word 'non-violence', because I don't believe that I am non-violent," said Ms Williams, 64.
"Right now, I would love to kill George Bush." Her young audience at the Brisbane City Hall clapped and cheered.
"I don't know how I ever got a Nobel Peace Prize, because when I see children die the anger in me is just beyond belief. It's our duty as human beings, whatever age we are, to become the protectors of human life."
Well, so we can display a flash of our feisty American spirit, we are asking that someone, anyone, anywhere, smash Mrs. Williams into a train as it is moving, or take her apart with an IED, or throw her out of a helicopter over the ocean at about 10,000 feet.
Now THAT is a feisty spirit. And, of course, we are kidding, whereas Mrs. Williams should be arrested and made to serve several years in prison. At the minimum, she should be barred from ever being allowed entry into the United States for the remainder of her life.

In the United States, the Left constantly sides with the enemies of America, no matter how bad they are or what they intend to do to this country. But this sickness is not limited to the American Left: in Israel, now under siege by Islamic terrorists bombarding its cities with rockets, the Left is marching on behalf of those same terrorists.
Left-wing rally: Negotiate with Hamas, Hizbullah
Some 1,000 protestors joined Sunday evening in a rally in Tel Aviv to protest the IDF strikes in Southern Lebanon. Police have arrested three of the protesters claiming they were holding a demonstration without a permit.
The protesters, who marched from Hen Boulevards toward King George Street, chanted slogans such as "Olmert agreed with Bush: War and occupation." "Stop the war monstrosity," and "Say no to the brutal bombardments on Gaza." They also accused Defense Minister Amir Peretz of murdering children in Gaza, and recited: "Peretz, don't worry, we'll be seeing you at The Hague."
"They keep telling us that there is a consensus in support of the war, and that's not true. They keep telling the citizens that this is the only way, and I think that there is another way," said Abeer Kopty of Mossawa, The Advocacy Center for Arab Citizens in Israel.
The organizations Ta'ayush, Yesh Gvul, The Women's Coalition for Peace and other left-wing groups have joined forces "to voice a different opinion against the war and in favor of negotiations," she explained.
Eitan Lerner, who took part in the rally, said: "Israel is entering another cycle of fighting and continues the foolishness of exaggerated aggression. I came here to protest because there's a link between starving and oppressing the Palestinians and the bombings in Lebanon."
"It's true that what Hizbullah did was unacceptable, but Israel is overreacting. Since when is the entire population to blame for all this?" he asked.
Negotiations? With terrorists? Are these people kidding?
It should now be clear to anyone with more than 3 IQ points that the Left should not be allowed to control any government anywhere. They side with the enemies of their country, and they will surrender the West to Islam if they could. They need to be stopped, no matter what it takes.
Monday, July 17, 2006
Well - did you? Because the dimwits at DUmmies Underground, one of the most hilarious leftwing sites on the Internet for conspiracy theory and simply tinfoil hat nuttery, thinks that the President's refusal to "stop" Israel from killing terrorists is tantamount to treason.
Bush refuses to intervene, some Rep. Senators ask him to resign
Am I naiive [sic] here ? My entire life, it's always been the sitting President's "duty" to call for a cease-fire/truce/peace in a war along with diplomacy. I am absolutely astonished that, so far, no one has seriously taken him to task publicly for being so insanely aloof. What is it going to take for Republican senators with intact brains to go to the White House and ask him to resign ? Yeah, I know we'd get Darth Cheney but at least we'd force him out of that damn bunker for a while.
Oh, we see now - this nut is asking WHY Republicans don't ask Bush to resign.
Here's the answer: Because only psycho leftwing nuts like you want that.
End of argument.
In Islam, one of the most disgusting acts (aside from everything else in that perverted cult) is the theory of "honor" for a family. If a child (usually a woman) wants to marry someone the family does not like, she does not have that right - and if she steps out of line, Islam says she may be killed, usually in the harshest way possible. Go to any search engine and enter "honor killings" - and up will pop some of the most horrific stories of women being murdered by their fathers, their cousins, even their brothers, for not doing things the "Islamic way."
Well, Muslims want to expand that theory to new and frightening heights. Are you all ready for "honor suicide"? Because now Muslims want those women who step out of line to kill themselves and save their families from doing the foul deed.
How to Avoid Honor Killing in Turkey? Honor Suicide
For Derya, a waiflike girl of 17, the order to kill herself came from an uncle and was delivered in a text message to her cellphone. “You have blackened our name,” it read. “Kill yourself and clean our shame or we will kill you first.”
Derya said her crime was to fall for a boy she had met at school last spring. She knew the risks: her aunt had been killed by her grandfather for seeing a boy. But after being cloistered and veiled for most of her life, she said, she felt free for the first time and wanted to express her independence.
When news of the love affair spread to her family, she said, her mother warned her that her father would kill her. But she refused to listen. Then came the threatening text messages, sent by her brothers and uncles, sometimes 15 a day. Derya said they were the equivalent of a death sentence.
Consumed by shame and fearing for her life, she said, she decided to carry out her family’s wishes. First, she said, she jumped into the Tigris River, but she survived. Next she tried hanging herself, but an uncle cut her down. Then she slashed her wrists with a kitchen knife.
“My family attacked my personality, and I felt I had committed the biggest sin in the world,” she said recently from a women’s shelter where she had traded in her veil for a T-shirt and jeans. She declined to give her last name for fear that her family was still hunting her. “I felt I had no right to dishonor my family, that I have no right to be alive. So I decided to respect my family’s desire and to die.”
This girl is still alive - and in hiding in fear of her life.
And Muslims tell us how Islam is a "religion of peace."

You take one Islamic psycho, convict him of trying to aid terrorist groups and then lying about it, and stick him in prison waiting to find a country to ship him off to. And then you cannot find a country willing to take the fucking little Islamic shithead.
What do you call him? According to the AP, he is a poor man "without a country."
Boo fucking hoo.
Imam 'man without a country'
The former imam of a Cleveland mosque is being called a "man without a country," stuck in jail because U.S. authorities cannot find a place to deport him.
Fawaz Damra, who was born on the West Bank, was convicted in 2004 of lying about ties to terrorist groups when he came to the United States about 20 years earlier. The evidence included a 1991 videotape in which Damra called Jews "pigs and monkeys" in Arabic and urged his listeners to contribute to Islamic Jihad.
Until his trial, Damra, a spiritual leader at the Islamic Center of Cleveland, had been considered a moderate.
Damra agreed in January to deportation. He was turned down by Canada and then requested deportation to Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Sudan, Egypt or the Palestinian territories.
"If there was progress, he'd be gone by now," said Robert Birach, his lawyer. "We haven't gotten a country yet to say yes."
Haider Alawan, a friend of Damra, said the government made him homeless by depicting him as a terrorist.
"He's a man without a country," Alawan said.
Aw, shucks...before the trial he was a moderate. But once he went on trial, then he became radical! He didn't like terrorists - but the trial brought out the "terrorist lover" in him! Yeah! That's the ticket!
At least we heard he sent a message out from his jail cell, er, home away from home: "I want my imammy!"
If this posting were not frightfully sickening it would be hilarious.
Matthew Yglesias, a disgusting leftwing imbecile, had advised Downies running for office that they should "pretend" to be against gay marriage so that the issue will not hurt them.
At Least Pretend
Via Ramesh Ponnuru, Carville & Greenberg's latest strategy memo on, among other things, gay marriage: "We hate this issue but we promise you that the Republicans will run hard on this issue, as it is critical for their dislodged voters and those in rural areas. That the Democrat believes marriage is between a man and a woman is among the strongest reassurance for older blue collar voters, seniors and those in rural areas. If this is what a candidate believes, it is important to say it."
If I might throw in my two cents, I would further strongly urge Democrats who don't believe marriage is between a man and a woman but who feel they ought to pretend to believe this in order to win elections (a plausible position) need to do a better job of pretending. I've heard a shockingly large number of politicians say things, in rooms where journalists are present, that make it perfectly clear that they think gay marriage is just fine but that the voters aren't ready for it. That's a sensible thing to believe, but you can't go around saying it if you're trying to win votes. If you're going to lie, then lie -- and lie convincingly!
This is the new leftist strategy: sell the voters what you think they want. If they want gay marriage, come out for it. If they want their guns to be preserved, come out for that. Do you believe it? OF COURSE NOT. But, after all, we are here to win elections! Fuck the issues! Fuck the voters if they are too stupid not to believe us!
We had so many to choose from...but this week our clear winner is this affable moron from Pakistan, who took a grenade to his "pro-Taliban" school ("Taliban" meaning "Islamic Imbecile") and got killed when it blew up.
What to say? Eeeks? Yikes? How about Hardy har har?
Militant killed by own hand grenade
DERA ISMAIL KHAN: A suspected pro-Taliban militant was killed when a grenade he was handling went off at a religious school, a security official said on Wednesday.
The man identified as Abdul Rahman died and two companions were wounded when the grenade’s pin was accidentally removed, the official said requesting anonymity.
The incident took place in the town of Jandola which borders the restive South Waziristan tribal district.
Comment? 1 stupid Muslim down, 1 billion to go.
(Does anyone have any loose grenades they are doing nothing with?)

In top of the good news these past few weeks that NY and Georgia have upheld the right of the state to ban gay marriage, news out of Nebraska shows that a ban on such marriages, once stuck down by some dimwitted federal judge, has been reinstated by the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis.
Plus, the Tennessee State Supreme Court has ruled that a ban on gay marriage may be on that state's ballot in November.
Court Reinstates Nebraska Gay Marriage Ban; Tennessee to Vote on Issue
Lincoln, Nebraska — Courts handed victories to gay-marriage opponents in two states Friday, reinstating Nebraska's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage and throwing out an attempt to keep a proposed ban off the ballot in Tennessee.
In the Nebraska case, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a judge's ruling last year that the ban was too broad and deprived gays and lesbians of participation in the political process, among other things.
Seventy percent of voters had approved the ban as a constitutional amendment in 2000.
It went farther than similar bans in many states in that it also barred same-sex couples from many legal protections afforded to heterosexual couples. For example, the partners of gays and lesbians who work for the state are not entitled to share their health insurance and other benefits.
New York-based Lambda and the ACLU's Lesbian and Gay Project sued, arguing it violated gay rights.
The court, however, ruled that amendment "and other laws limiting the state-recognized institution of marriage to heterosexual couples are rationally related to legitimate state interests and therefore do not violate the Constitution of the United States."
In Tennessee, the state Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union that contended the state failed to meet its own notification requirements for a ballot measure asking voters to ban gay marriage. The high court ruled unanimously Friday that the ACLU didn't have standing to file the suit.
Tennessee already had a law banning gay marriage, but lawmakers who supported the proposed amendment said they wanted a backup in case the law was overturned.
All over the United States, the pro-homosexual lobby is being beaten back - in the courts, in the legislatures, or at the ballot box.
This is good news for the 98% of Americans who are not trying to shove this shit down everyone else's throats.

Like a bad cold that is swiftly destroyed, Air America is going silent across the nation.
This time, it is Atlanta.
Local radio gives liberal talk the business
Air America has signed off in Atlanta, with few immediate prospects for finding a new home.
J.W. Broadcasting, which purchased the Atlanta affiliate that broadcast Air America, has launched a business talk format on WCFO-AM 1160. "After doing some research, I realized [Atlanta] was the only top 10 radio market without a business talk station," says Jeff Davis, vice president/general manager for J.W. Broadcasting. "It was needed."
The decision comes as a letdown for local liberal listeners and Air America execs. Until J.W. Broadcasting purchased its second area station in late January, the 1690 dial had served as the home of Air America, the only liberal AM talk radio in a market saturated by conservative talk show hosts such as Neal Boortz and Laura Ingraham.
The reason that liberals are mad about this Air America story is that they believe that the left has a right to be on the air.
The little thing known as the "marketplace," where you try and sell your ideas and either they succeed or fail, has no relevance to the left. They want it, so they must have it.
Fortunately for the rest of us, that is not how things operate in the United States.

A chicken in Kazahkstan has laid an egg, and some imbecilic Muslim believes that the word "Allah" is written on it.
Chicken lays mystery Allah egg
A chicken in a Kazakh village has laid an egg with the word "Allah" inscribed on its shell, state media reported Thursday.
"Our mosque confirmed that it says 'Allah' in Arabic," Bites Amantayeva, a farmer from the village of Stepnoi in eastern Kazakhstan, told state news agency Kazinform.
"We'll keep this egg and we don't think it'll go bad."
This is an amazing story - because we here at Joobo saw a somewhat similar story some time back (sorry, no link) - and we kept it, hoping to post it here one day.

Mysterious Pile of Cow Dung has the Word "Allah" Written in It
Gaza Strip (AP) - Mohammad Khaled Al-Haritha, better known as "Mohammad Khaled Al-Haritha," a Palestinian farmer, says that one of his cows has left a pile of dung in which the word "Allah" appears in Arabic, mysteriously.
"It is a sign from heaven," says al-Haritha. "Allah works in mysterious ways, and he is sending us Muslims a sign that he wishes to be heard in this form."
Spokesmen for the Palestinian government were unavailable for comment, too busy building suicide belts.
The BBC, part of the triad of journalistic evil which collaborates with the enemies of the United States, Israel, peace, and freedom, did a story on the missiles fired last week by North Korea.
How to describe the story? "North Korea good, United States bad."
N Korea tests long-range missile
The BBC's Charles Scanlon in Seoul says the North has been feeling under pressure and ignored in recent months, with the US refusing to negotiate on its demands over its nuclear plans.
Long-running talks over North Korea's nuclear capabilities have stalled, with six-party negotiations on the issue being repeatedly postponed as neither Washington nor Pyongyang are prepared to give ground.
North Korea may see this action as a way to get attention and break the diplomatic log jam, our correspondent adds.
You see? If only the BAD United States would just stop ignoring the GOOD but MISUNDERSTOOD Kim Jong-Il! The BAD United States refuses to negotiate! The BAD United States is not prepared "to give ground"!
Darn! If only the United States were not BAD! Darn darn darn darn!

The MSM continues to make up the news, either altering the facts to fit its liberal agenda or throwing the entire story out and making stuff up so that it can hurt conservatives.
A "reporter" for the Daily Iowan, a college newspaper, was caught plagiarizing an entire story on his support for a minimum wage increase from - of all places - a Downtrodden Party news release.
The newspaper caught the story, fired the creepo, and apologized.
We here at The Daily Iowan recently learned that the July 6 column "Minimum wage no-brainer" was largely plagiarized from a report released June 29 by the Democratic Policy Committee. On behalf of The Daily Iowan staff, I sincerely apologize and deeply regret that such a piece appeared in our newspaper.
Per staff policy, the harshest possible action has been taken against this employee, and John Heineman will no longer work for this publication. We performed an investigation of all his previous work since joining the paper in the fall of 2005. This search revealed no prior cases of plagiarism.
We have treated this situation with the utmost caution and deliberation in hopes that never again will a member of our staff perpetrate this breach of professional ethics.
In light of this episode, the DI has begun discussing ways to prevent the recurrence of plagiarism in our pages. Already, Opinions staff writers are now required to submit a file to their editor detailing through what research and from whom they gathered their story's information. We are pursuing ways to prevent plagiarism in our other departments.
There is an easy way to avoid having this problem happen in the future. In fact, the way is only 3 words long:
Don't Hire Liberals!
That works every time.

There are good reasons that the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are unpopular: the MSM in the US tells the bad news, and never lets on about any good news.
Here is some good news; try and find it on any news site and you will be rudely disappointed.
New Afghan Road Offers Gateway to Optimism
BAGRAM AIR BASE, Afghanistan, July 5, 2006 – The U.S. Agency for International Development has started a $16 million road project that extends from the center of Afghanistan's Panjshir Valley and will eventually connect the valley to southern markets in Charikar and Kabul.
Local optimism for the road project was apparent when all shopkeepers in the valley volunteered to tear down their storefronts to allow for the 6-meter-wide road.
"USAID doesn't compensate shopkeepers for rebuilding their storefronts," Burton said. "They understood the road needed to be 6 meters wide, so they happily cleared the way for progress because they understand the benefits. The new road replaces a centuries-old donkey path."
Imagine if we could have interviews with these people being impacted by the road. Instead, the MSM will interview Palestinian terrorists and ask them why Israel is abusing them.
Once in a blue moon, a Muslim writer finds his or her brains and lets on how bankrupt their religion is.
We found one such person: Saudi newspaper columnist Yusuf Nasir Al-Suweidan.
"This is a Despicable Attack by Hamas, Which is Acting Like a Terrorist Organization"
"It would be absurd to try to believe the claims of the terrorist Hamas movement, and of its allies and masters in Tehran and Damascus, that speak of an 'important victory' over the Israelis in this desperate attack. This [claim is absurd], for the simple and obvious reason that the military, political, and economic balance of power, along with every other parameter, will always favor Israel to a considerable degree, so that the very notion of equilibrium between the two sides in the conflict is [nothing but] a wild fantasy.
"[In addition] it would [be] a complete fantasy to think that the Israelis will react like 'harmless lambs' to what occurred near the Kerem Shalom crossing last Sunday. Several minutes after the terrorist attack, the crossings [were] closed and the Israeli military units began moving in battle readiness. This was the largest Israeli military build-up since the withdrawal from Gaza last September. This shows that the Israelis are determined to invade the Gaza Strip within hours [if three conditions are not met]: firstly, if the kidnapped Israeli is not released; secondly, if the firing of Qassam missiles into Israeli territories does not cease; and thirdly, [if] the terrorist infrastructure is not dismantled.
"If this invasion materializes, then this time, a new reality will be created in the Gaza Strip in which all talk about 'back to square one' will be nothing but wild optimism - since the [situation] will regress [far beyond that], to a level where it is possible to talk of a plan of deportation and demographic change in Gaza, and this [plan] might even be implemented soon. This will turn the Palestinian dream of an independent state into a thing of the past..."
A Muslim who says this must have a death wish. To question Psychoislam earns one a death sentence in that part of the world.

Air America, the far far far far leftwing nuisance radio "network" for leftist losers, has gone silent in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Boo fucking hoo.
Frequency flip flop
Today is when Clear Channel swaps the frequencies on its liberal talk and sports stations. The progressive talk lineup, which includes Jerry Springer's locally based "Springer on the Radio" and other programming from progressive radio network Air America, moves from its current dial position at WCKY-AM (1530) to WSAI-AM (1360). The sports talk format, "Homer: The Sports Animal" goes from WSAI to the WCKY dial position.
WCKY is a significantly more powerful 50,000 watt signal heard on the East Coast and as far south as Florida, while WSAI has a 5,000 watt signal that barely gets out of the tri-state.
Cincinnati Clear Channel programmers are being brutally honest about the reason for the switch. In a tongue-in-cheek on-air announcement detailing the change, an announcer is heard saying, "I know this can be confusing," but sarcastically adds, "If all you diehard liberals who whined for Air American programming had bothered to listen to it, none of this would be necessary."
Since coming on the air here in January of 2005, the liberal talk format has barely cracked the top 20 out of some 30 stations rated in the Greater Cincinnati market. The sports talk station has also had meager ratings since coming on in 2000, but has shown growth in recent rating books. Programmers have said they feel the sports format is more marketable regionally than the liberal talk format.
The stories of Air America going dead city by city will now speed up. And when that liberal monstrosity is gone for good, the left can cry about how the marketplace wasn't able to handle their pathetic baloney.

The BBC, one of the triad of journalistic evil, puts out the following story in which it claims that scientists have found "climate change" to be "real and severe."
Then, the story goes on to quote these scientists as not seeing the problem severe at all. In fact, many do not agree on just what is happening.
Climate change 'real and severe'
An expert panel convened by BBC News has concluded that climate change is "real and dangerous".
Temperatures are likely to rise by 3C to 5C by the end of the century, with impacts likely to be "severe" but not "catastrophic", the panel said.
It also concluded that politicians are unlikely to cut emissions sufficiently to prevent dangerous global heating.
The panel's discussions were based on themes set by Professor James Lovelock in his latest book The Revenge of Gaia.
Wow! Dangerous stuff, eh?
But, if you just pan down into the meat of the article, you get the following:
For perspectives on these issues, BBC environment affairs analyst Roger Harrabin brought together a panel of seven eminent academics with expertise including climate modelling, the Antarctic, and social aspects of environment policy.
There was general agreement that Professor Lovelock had used rather severe projections of future climate change.
There was acknowledgement that some areas of climate-related science remain substantially uncertain. The behaviour of forests and the impacts of rising greenhouse emissions on oceans were two fields picked out as needing further study.
Hans von Storch from the Institute for Coastal Research in Geesthacht, Germany, cautioned against making public statements on the basis of science that is not fully mature.
Early computer models of climate, he said, had predicted increases in storminess, which had not shown up in later, more sophisticated models.
"So as long as we simply play around with these models as toys and enjoy ourselves and develop our knowledge, that's fine," he said.
"But if we at the same time go out and speak to journalists and say 'therefore we will have this and that disastrous event', I think we are doing a disservice to the public."
The headline and story tells us that short of shutting down human existence, we are all doomed.
But the science and evidence tells us the opposite: that no one knows the truth, and those who claim they do are full of shit.
The BBC: bringing daily lies and Marxist propaganda to you, all at taxpayer expense.
Enron CEO Ken Lay has died of a heart attack in Colorado at age 64.
This gives the demented left (better known as "the left") a chance to 1) deny that Lay is dead, and 2) claim that President Bush is involved.
Check out this thread from the "Loose Change" (Loose Minds) video which says that 9/11 didn't happen:
Please Follow The Ken Lay Funeral, A call to Researchers
Please keep a close eye on this.. such as open casket.. etc. If someone can get into the funeral, that may be even better.
I think he was "heart attacked" He could be still alive though, I wouldn't doubt it.
A strange point about the Enron trial is that after the accused were convicted their sentence date was set on 9/11 2006. It seems this date has some significance to some one????
For the record, in my opinion, the powers that be had nothing to fear of what Ken Lay might say in a trial, the trial was over. He was awaiting sentencing, and the sentence was gonna be heavy - they got him on 10 counts. The rub is, in my opinion, he was an insider, he was not one to be cast aside, they put him into their "conspirator protection program" and slipped him out to Europe. Ken Lay is now living the good life with all the other CPP's lol. I used to think Barbara Olsen, fl. 77 passenger and wife of the Solicitor General, actually died in the plot and her husband Ted was probably complicit in sending her to her death. However I think that not to be the case. Ted quit his government job and is rumored to have dissapeared into Europe. That's where Kenny-boy, as George Bush affectionately calls him, is as well, dollars to donuts.
That last one is a hoot: President Bush has arranged to have 9/11 victims and others to vacation in Europe.
Where do these nuts come from with this shit?
Better yet, you can continue to laugh at the pathetic conspiratorial attempts of the left, who ask the key question of our times:
Is Kenny Boy Dead?
Poll question: Is Kenny Boy Dead?
88 votes say no, 6 votes say yes.
One of those posting wrote this - and it nails the left in every argument they make:
Yes he's dead. But please continue to make up the wildest wackiest shit you can think up, it provides good laughs.
How the left continues to remain relevant outside of the nutsy bin is anyone's question.

It is common economic theory that the more you cut taxes the more revenue comes into the national treasury. It is, however, common theory to all but the left, which believes that if you tax the shit out of everybody that somehow this means more money.
Proving the left wrong once again, President Bush's tax cuts are bringing in more revenue to the government - so much that the deficit continues to go down.
And the Times had to report this. The reporter must have had a coronary while doing so.
Surprising Jump in Tax Revenues Curbs U.S. Deficit
An unexpectedly steep rise in tax revenues from corporations and the wealthy is driving down the projected budget deficit this year, even though spending has climbed sharply because of the war in Iraq and the cost of hurricane relief.
On Tuesday, White House officials are expected to announce that the tax receipts will be about $250 billion above last year's levels and that the deficit will be about $100 billion less than what they projected six months ago. The rising tide in tax payments has been building for months, but the increased scale is surprising even seasoned budget analysts and making it easier for both the administration and Congress to finesse the big run-up in spending over the past year.
Tax revenues are climbing twice as fast as the administration predicted in February, so fast that the budget deficit could actually decline this year.
The main reason is a big spike in corporate tax receipts, which have nearly tripled since 2003, as well as what appears to be a big rise in individual taxes on stock market profits and executive bonuses.
Of course, the imbecile writing this "cautions" his readers that tax receipts could go down. Unfortunately for the reader, the doofus doesn't say that that is because tax receipts go up and down.
It is how capitalism works. But don't tell that to the Left.
"Goatfucker Mahmoud" Ahmadinejad, psycho du jour of Iran, says that the Arab world's greatest problem is Israel, and he wants to wipe it out.
Unfortunately for the Goatfucker, those 300 million Arabs who surround Israel have a combined IQ of 18, so it is impossible for them to do anything other than to fuck goats and beat their wives, the 2 key tenets of Islam.
Iran's Ahmadinejad calls for 'removal of Zionist regime'
TEHRAN (AFP) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called on Islamic countries to mobilise against Israel and "remove" the "Zionist regime".
"The basic problem in the Islamic world is the existence of the Zionist regime, and the Islamic world and the region must mobilise to remove this problem," the president said in a speech to regional officials.
He was speaking at the opening of a two-day conference in Tehran on security in Iraq.
It is definitely a top priority - bringing security to Iraq means getting rid of Israel.
We can only wish that some dumb Muslim goes to blow himself up and instead takes out Goatfucker Mahmoudy. Then the world can really have something to cheer about.
Senator Joe Biden, who was found in the 1980s to have "lifted" (stolen is the true word) speeches from British Labour leader Neil Kinnock, is now saying that he predicted 9/11.
Wait - he predicted it? Wow!
Not so fast, pardner. Biden predicted 9/11 like John Kerry predicted he would win the 2004 election.
Yet Another Biden'ism
While the Biden Indian-American line we gleaned from C-Span's Road to the White House has gotten a lot of play, there was another part of his New Hampshire speech that perked our ears.
Attacking the Bush admin's record on nat'l security (right after the 54-minute mark of the clip), Biden recalled that he gave a speech on September 10th, 2001 "predicting 9/11."
Now in fairness to Biden, he did use that 9/10/01 Nat'l Press Club address to excoriate the admin for focusing on Star Wars instead of unconventional threats such as biological and chemical terrorist attacks.
But, Senator, "predicting 9/11?"
Biden also made a crack about Indian-Americans this weekend, and now he has to apologize. He is slowly becoming a wisecrack among his own party of joker/losers.
The AP posted this h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s photo on their site - we just had to share it in perpetuity.
It shows a Palestinian terrorist shooting at Israeli troops, with a fake gun.
Now we know why Palestinians are not considered bright.
A Palestinian youth pretends to fire at Israeli troops behind a burning barricade during an Israeli army incursion in Beit Lahiya, in the northen Gaza Strip, Friday July 7, 2006.

Those peaceful sickos from the world of Islam, the perverted cult which intends to take over the world or destroy it, have been screwing up the entire world for another week - as usual. So, it is time for another round-up of news from Islamofuckers.
First up, a peaceful cultist blew his shop up in England.
Man jailed for blowing up his kebab shop
A man who blew up his failing takeaway business in an insurance scam was jailed for six years today - after the explosion devastated a whole street.
Sadaat Ali, 41, poured petrol all around his takeaway shop, Too Tasty, in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, then opened a gas valve, Bolton Crown Court heard.
The explosion left the building a smoking ruin and three other shops next door had to be demolished.
But, wait! What was the religion of the convicted scumbag?
Ah, that is down - far down - in the article:
Ali was described in court as a hard-working family man and a respected member of the local Muslim community in Rochdale.
But he showed no remorse for his crime and denied his involvement. He was convicted after a trial last month.
Aw, shucks - he's a "respected member" of the local Muslim community.
In short, he is a piece of shit like the other Muslims in the town.
But, alas, there is more perversion and death from that cult called Islam.
Here is a lovely story about another slug in Britain - who says that Muslims have a right "to defend themselves" by using terrorism.
Fanatic's sick 7/7 rant
A MUSLIM fanatic caused outrage yesterday by admitting he wouldn’t tip off cops about another 7/7 suicide attack.
Anjem Choudary also claimed “oppressed” Muslims had a right to defend themselves using “whatever means”.
Choudary, 38, right-hand man of exiled hate preacher Omar Bakri, repeatedly refused to condemn the 7/7 bombers at a press conference on the eve of the anniversary of the London blasts.
But when asked if he would inform the police of another suicide mission he said in Walthamstow, East London: “No I wouldn’t. I don’t think Muslims can co-operate with police.”
Then Choudary warned Britain faced CIVIL WAR with its 1.6million-strong Muslim community.
He said: “We are reaching a situation where the Muslim community is increasingly under siege.
“I’m afraid of a Bosnia or Kosovo-style reality here in Great Britain.”
Choudary’s rant came a day after he was fined for organising protests over cartoons about the prophet Mohammed.
Why is the Blair government allowing this piece of crap to stay in England? Why?
But, in our third story, making amends for terrorists is nothing new in Islam - now, however, if you do not pray that Mohammad way, then Islam says you must be killed.
Death for Somali Muslims who shirk prayers
Somali Muslims who fail to perform daily prayers will be killed in accordance with Qur'anic law under a new edict issued by a leading cleric in the Islamic courts union that controls Mogadishu.
The requirement for Muslims to observe the five-times daily ritual under penalty of death was announced late on Wednesday and appears to confirm the hard-line nature of the increasingly powerful Sharia courts in the capital.
"He who does not perform prayers will be considered as infidel and Sharia law orders that that person be killed," said Sheikh Abdalla Ali, a founder and high-ranking official in the Supreme Islamic Council of Somalia.
Here is what is in store for the world, folks.
Conform to psycho Muslims, pray the way they do, beat your wife or kill her, and blow shit up, or you are dead.
It is as simple as that.

The NY state Court of Appeals, that state's highest court and one of the most liberal in the United States, this morning held that gay marriage is not allowable under New York law.
NY court rules against gay marriage
New York's highest court ruled Thursday that gay marriage is not allowed under state law.
The Court of Appeals in a 4-2 decision rejected arguments from gay and lesbian plaintiffs throughout the state that their inability to get marriage licenses in New York violated their constitutional rights.
Judge Robert Smith said New York's marriage law is constitutional and clearly limits marriage to between a man and a woman. Any change in the law should come from the state Legislature, he said.
"We do not predict what people will think generations from now, but we believe the present generation should have a chance to decide the issue through its elected representatives," Smith wrote.
Gov. George Pataki's health department and state Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's office have argued New York law prohibits issuing licenses to same-sex couples. The state had prevailed in lower appeals courts.
The judges declined to follow the lead of high court judges in neighboring Massachusetts, who ruled that same-sex couples in that state have the same right to wed as straight couples.
The question here arises: if the homosexual lobby cannot win in New York, where can they win with their perverted ideas?
Soon after NY's Supreme Court said that gay marriage was not lawful, the George state Supreme Court ruled that that state's ban on gay marriage was constitutional - in short, a 2-fer against perversion in one day, not seen since Bill Clinton was impeached.
However, in the midst of this good news, Howard "Duckie" Dean, chairman du jour of the Downtrodden National Committee, came out strongly and condemned the decision of NY's highest court.
Statement by Howard Dean on the New York Court of Appeals Ruling on Same-Sex Marriage
WASHINGTON, July 6 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean today issued the following statement in response to the decision by the New York Court of Appeals that the state constitution does not guarantee the right to marriage for same-sex couples, but that the state legislature could provide this:
"As Democrats, we believe that every American has a right to equal protection under the law and to live in dignity. And we must respect the right of every family to live in dignity with equal rights, responsibilities and protections under the law. Today's decision by the New York Court of Appeals, which relies on outdated and bigoted notions about families, is deeply disappointing, but it does not end the effort to achieve this goal.
"As that essential process moves forward, it is up to the State legislature to act to protect the equal rights of every New Yorker and for the debate on how to ensure those rights to proceed without the rancor and divisiveness that too often surrounds this issue."
Yup, it is those "outdated notions" called the law. The NY Supreme Court upheld the law, and Duckie is upset.
We do, however, need to refresh Duckie's memory - as we harken back to early May, when Duckie made the following comment as he tries to get religious people to believe his silly party's malarkey:
Howard Dean: Democrats Have Much in Common with Evangelicals
He added, “The Democratic Party platform from 2004 says that marriage is between a man and a woman. That's what it says. I think where we may take exception with some religious leaders is that we believe in inclusion, that everybody deserves to live with dignity and respect, and that equal rights under the law are important.”
So, even though we proved that Duckie was full of shit as usual - the 2004 Downie platform said just the opposite, and Duckie knew it - he tried to make it seem that his silly party is for "marriage...between a man and a woman."
So, Duckie, since 2 state courts - including that of liberal New York State - held that exact standing as the law, why are you so damned upset?
Could it be that the chances your party had to win Congress in 2006 are slipsliding away, and you are a sickening assclown?
Major Piece of Human Refuse Cindy Sheehan, in the 2nd day of her longterm hunger strike, says she would rather live in Venezuela than in America.
‘Wrong and immoral’
July 5: Activist Cindy Sheehan, who is leading a hunger strike against the war in Iraq, tells Norah O’Donnell she would rather live under Hugo Chavez than George W. Bush.
Here's how to fix this, Piece of Crap: Head to your local airport, and go on down to Boss Hugo.
And don't let the door hit you in the ass, or you could get a headache.
After licking the asses of Muslim perverts, losers, and terrorists in their midst, the British government has decided to stop giving welfare benefits to the families of al-Qaeda sympathizers.
This comes nearly 5 years after 9/11.
Must've been a real tough decision!
Benefits stopped to 'al-Qa'eda' families
The Treasury took action yesterday to stop the households of people suspected of links to al-Qa'eda and the Taliban from receiving state benefits and tax credits.
Under United Nations resolutions passed in 2002 to freeze the assets of named individuals believed to be involved in terrorism, benefits and credits are already withheld from a number of terror suspects living in the UK.
Until now, their wives and relatives have been able to continue claiming child benefit or tax credits, which the Government suspected could be redirected to fund terror.
Imagine that the government in London continued to pay the families of those suspected of planning mass murder against the British nation. What took them so damn long? Are they just stupid?
But, as the article states, this is not what you would call a "far reaching" program:
Child benefit has been suspended to five households, of which two have also had tax credit payments stopped.
My God! Five households impacted! Considering the thousands of Muslims sickos in England, this is a pathetic start.

Those peace activists...they are so, well, peaceful.
Then again, seething under the surface of their unwashed smelly bodies lies a volcano of hatred and violence.
We found one of them, right after he tried to kill a British rock singer.
Peace activist hit rocker in spat over girl, say UK police
A New Zealand peace activist is facing serious assault charges after he allegedly punched a rock singer in London, leaving the man in a coma.
Christiaan Briggs, 30, who spent three weeks in Iraq with the Truth Justice Peace Human Shield Action Group in 2003, appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on Tuesday to face a charge of grievous bodily harm.
Police say the incident occurred on June 22 when Briggs allegedly punched 19-year-old Billy Leeson, causing the rising rock star to hit his head on the ground.
Leeson, the lead singer with rock band Les Incompetents - who have supported Pete Doherty's group Babyshambles - was "still very ill", said Scotland Yard spokesman James Nadin.
His condition was described as "critical but stable".
Check out the photo of this scumbag...he looks like he hasn't bathed in months.
That's what you get from the delusional left: a message of peace, of love, and BAM! a punch in the face to break your jaw.
Such lovely people...not.
The Swiss have a dumbshit named Dick Marty who keeps saying that the CIA used European soil to transmit terror suspects.
His proof? Well, he has none - but he believes it happened.
And he keeps telling everyone that he still believes it, despite no evidence.
Ladies and Gentleman, we introduce to you an asshole of the first order: Dickhead Marty.
EU senator: CIA prison probe calls ignored
STRASBOURG, France - The lead European investigator looking into allegations that Poland and Romania hosted secret CIA prisons said Monday that neither government has responded to calls for their own inquiries into the matter.
Swiss Senator Dick Marty implicated the two countries in a report last month as possibly having hosted the secret detention centers for terrorism suspects in the past. Both countries have denied the allegation.
Marty, investigating on behalf of the Council of Europe human rights watchdog, offered no clear, direct proof in his report that CIA detention centers were set up there -- an allegation made by a human rights group last year. Instead he relied on circumstantial evidence based on flight logs provided by the European Union air traffic agency.
Yep, there's his proof: flight logs.
He might as well have Lincoln logs, because this dick has not one piece of evidence except his own delusions.
In short, he is a classic Euro-peon.
A reporter for The Times of London - a Muslim himself - went to the city of Beeson, undercover, and discovered that his fellow Muslims are fucking psychotic and are making plans for wrecking England.
The reporter was shocked. We, however, are not.
Focus: Undercover on planet Beeston
Sunday Times reporter Ali Hussain spent six weeks in Beeston, where three of the 7/7 bombers came from. He found an enclosed community, rife with conspiracy theories
The rich smell of Indian spices wafted along the road. Voices babbled in Urdu and Sylheti, a Bangladeshi dialect that my own family speak. Thick-bearded men in robes strolled the streets and youngsters wore their jeans rolled above the ankle after leaving the mosque, as Muslim custom requires.
I felt both at home and in a foreign land. This could almost be an Asian city, I thought, rather than Beeston, the suburb of Leeds where two of the July 7 bombers had lived.
I had come to gauge the mood of the community after the 7/7 attacks, which struck London a year ago this week. The world I knew as a British Muslim sprang from cosmopolitan roots, and I wanted to discover what the people of this more insular community really felt about the bombers and western culture.
I found myself both drawn to the warm embrace of the Muslim community that dominates Beeston, and shocked by the views it espoused in private.
As we like to say, "Read it all."
A Jewish newspaper has a major article on what they see as changing EU attitudes towards Israel - mainly because of the rise of Hamas. They note that the Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip this week has been barely mentioned, whereas in the past such actions would have been denounced.
A change? If so, definitely a sign of progress.
Muted reaction to Gaza offensive highlights shift in EU Mideast policy
The shift is subtle but unmistakable. European governments - long accused of being pro-Arab - have toned down criticism of Israel, left in shock by the rise to power of Islamic Hamas which they consider a terrorist outfit.
The rise of Hamas and the subsequent deterioration of peace prospects have left the EU in a quandary. The election of the Hamas government has pulled the rug from under its â‚¬500 million (US$626.5 million) a year aid package that feeds, clothes and educates many Palestinians and distanced the EU from them.
After the Hamas government was sworn in, the EU strongly condemned it on April 10 for refusing to recognize Israel in a one-page statement whose brevity contrasted with the bloc's usually long Mideast declarations that take pains to show balance.
The EU's tilt toward the Jewish state was highlighted after Israel's attacks on infrastructure targets in the Gaza Strip. Normally such strikes elicit stinging rebukes, but this time they brought only limp appeals to both sides to resolve the crisis through diplomacy.
The EU formally denies any policy shift.
The article also notes that the EU wants to re-cozy back up with the Bush administration after making assholes of themselves in their zeal to oppose the Iraq war.
If this is all true, or even partially true, it is a wonderful development.

The Arabs are letting it be known that somehow, despite owning more than 20 countries that surround Israel, with millions upon millions of potential suicide bombers, they are "powerless" against the Jewish state.
Powerless? Millions of Arabs are "powerless"?
Maybe they are just collectively stupid.
Arabs helpless onlookers in Gaza standoff
Arabs helpless onlookers in Gaza standoff
This time there are no angry protests in Arab streets or recalls of diplomats -- only a low-key bid to mediate between Israelis and Palestinians.
A widening Israeli military campaign in the Gaza Strip to secure the release of a captured soldier has exposed a sense of helplessness among Arab governments and ordinary people alike.
Most Arab governments have done little more than issue standard condemnations of the Israeli airstrikes on targets in Gaza and the tightening blockade of its 1.3 million residents.
"The scandal, as usual, is in the stand of the Arab countries... who look away from what is happening to the Palestinian people in their homeland," Talal Salman, editor and owner of Lebanon's As-Safir newspaper, wrote on Friday.
"They (the Arabs) don't have an answer. They don't have much choice," analyst Abdel-Monem Said, of Egypt's Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies, told Reuters.
You have to feel for the poor, poor Arabs.
Maybe they can show how much they care by blowing themselves up, something they normally do on a daily basis.
Imagine if someone asked you this moronic question: "Which would you wish for: the capture of Usama bin Laden, or the impeachment of George W. Bush?"
Now, even if you were a psycho scumbag leftwing asshole, common sense would dictate that you would rather see bin Laden in chains.
Or would you?
According to the fruitpies at Dummies Underground, they would far rather see Bush impeached.
So my friend posed this "moral" dilemma to me
He asked, in all seriousness, just to show me that I wasn't as anti-Bush as I think I am, the following question: "Would you rather see Osama caught/killed or Bush impeached?" I said, "you're kidding, right? This is your moral dilemma?" The odd thing was that he was smiling, like he could finally declare he "got me." Then it dawned on me: he thought I'd naturally choose Osama being caught/killed. "Bush getting impeached--my choice every time, twice on Sunday." At first he claimed I was just being difficult, hyperbolic even, just trying to get a rise out of him. I confirmed that this was not the case, that I would MUCH rather see Bush get impeached than Osama captured. In fact, I said, it would do the war on terror much more good, though I'm not too sure what a "war on terror" means. But I said that aside from all positive geo-political benefits that would result from his impeachment, besides all of that, that I'd just rather see Bush impeached than Osama captured. I think the world would breathe a big sigh of relief. And I said that most of the world would be on my side.
He asked why I loathed our country so much. "I don't. I just don't like Bush. Or Osama. I just rather see Bush impeached than Osama captured. By the way, I neither love nor hate my country. It's just where I keep what little stuff I have."
But, wait! Check out the responses to this imbecile:
"The only way we're going to see Osama caught...is if Bush gets impeached."
"YES!!!!!!! that's the way I feel too."
"Just consider which one represents the bigger evil and/or greater harm to our country, our future and the world's as well."
"I'd like to see Osama caught and I'd like to see Bush impeached, but Bush being impeached will have a much greater effect on my life than Osama being caught so I'd go for that first."
"I think you made the right choice. Osama, while deserving the same punishment that Zaq got, didn't kill anywhere near as many people as george has helped kill. And if george gets his way, he'll kill a hell of a lot more."
"Your friend needs to learn who the REAL terrorists are. Cause it ain't Osama or the so called "al Qaeda."
Well, there it is.
Examples of the worst pieces of human excrement currently mingling among the rest of us and sharing our air, our water, our planet.
And this is the mainstream of the party of Nancy Pelosi, John Murthafugger, and John Kerry.
God help us all if they ever get control of this country ever again.

French National Imbecile Jacques Chirac instituted a "national tax" on air travelers - to pay for a UN AIDS fund.
This now impacts travelers world-wide...and Chirac, the thief that he is, could care less.
Airline passengers in France face new tax to help world's poor
Passengers boarding planes in France are now paying a new tax on their tickets to help the world's poor, after the measure came into effect on the weekend.
The tax, championed by President Jacques Chirac and backed by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, adds a surcharge of between one and 40 euros (1.25 and 50 dollars) depending on the destination and class of seat.
Money raised is to go to an international fund to buy treatments for AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
A number of countries -- Brazil, Chile, Cyprus, Congo, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mauritius, Nicaragua and Norway -- have all signed on to the initiative, and France hopes others will follow suit.
The United States, Canada and Germany, though, oppose the levy, and several airlines have complained that it will simply add to the cost of air travel at a time of high fuel prices.
If France wants to send billions to the UN to waste, that is fine - only the Frogs will suffer. But to institute something that impacts all who happen to have to stop in that hellhole without any other country allowing or okaying it is just another example of why France is a loser of a country, and should be avoided at all costs.
If this story were on a comedy website, it would be mocked as impossible, racist, out of touch. But it is real.
Muslims in Britain have taken control of a theme park, and only Muslims can attend on the day they bought - no non-Muslims can get tickets.
Where is anyone to stand up against this outrage?
Muslim-only Alton Towers
BRITAIN’S biggest fun park has sparked a race row — with a MUSLIMS-ONLY day.
Up to 28,000 are expected at Alton Towers on September 17 when there will be no music, booze or gambling.
Instead there will be prayer areas, Muslim stalls and all food served will be HALAL.
Organisers Islamic Leisure have billed it the First National Muslim Fun Day and tickets can only be bought through their website.
Non-Muslims phoning the Staffordshire park have been refused tickets.
One, George Hughes, 19, who rang up for 15 tickets for a pal’s birthday, said: “I couldn’t believe it.
“It’s the only day we can go, yet I can’t because I’m not Muslim. Can you imagine all the fuss if there was a Christians-only day?”
George, of Crayford, Kent, added: “My Muslim friends think it’s outrageous.
“What’s the world coming to when people are being banned from flying the St George’s flag yet this sort of day is allowed? If it must be held, then why not on a weekday rather than a busy weekend?”
The event is widely promoted on the internet and the Muslim Public Affairs Committee declared it “exclusively for our brothers and sisters."
That the British government allows this shows the lengths the Blair ministry will go to kiss the smelly asses of Muslims in some vain attempt to avoid another terrorist incident. If anyone thinks that works, check out the biography of some man named Neville Chamberlain and see what the wonderful theory of appeasement did for his career.

The Australian newspaper has printed this editorial from Foreign Editor Greg Sheridan, demonstrating why, in the past few weeks, the Downies have flushed the Iraq issue down the toilet and are now on the defense when it comes to the issue of national security.
With the left in the shape it is in, who wouldn't have predicted this? But to fall so far, so fast...
On Iraq, things are finally looking up for US Republicans
A strange thing has happened to the Iraq debate in the US in the past couple of weeks. The political momentum has swung back to the Bush administration and the congressional Republicans and away from the Democrats and other critics of the US-led Coalition operations in Iraq, of which Australia is part.
Partly it is events: the death of al-Qa'ida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and the formation of a full, democratic Iraqi government representing all of the main communities. Partly it is political tactics, such as Bush's visit to Iraq last month. More important was the recent congressional debate on Iraq. The Republicans went on the political offensive. They passed motions supporting the US military effort. This had the effect of flushing the Democrats out, exposing their divisions and the hollowness of their alternative policies.
The party's last presidential candidate, senator John Kerry, moved an amendment calling for all US troops to be out of Iraq within a year. It was crushed in the Senate, with most Democrats voting against it. Kerry's action was a gift to Bush and the congressional Republicans. It seemed to validate the Bush argument of 2004 that Kerry would have been a dangerous president. Even the ultra-liberal Los Angeles Times castigated the Democrats, saying they are sending a message to American voters that they are unreliable on national security. The Republicans have moved the debate back to much more favourable ground as far as they are concerned. They want the debate to be about the future -- what do we do now? -- rather than whether it was right or wrong to go into Iraq in the first place.
The US debate about Iraq at times seems almost as complex as Iraq itself. Everything is happening in the context of the November congressional elections, where Democrats believe they have a realistic chance of taking back the House of Representatives and an outside chance of taking back the Senate. Even greater is the shadow of the wide-open presidential election in 2008, with no incumbent, or incumbent vice-president, running. This has happened only once before since World War II.
But uncertainty about how Iraq will play in November and later in the presidential election is leading most Democrats to adopt a small-target strategy, as they seek to avoid saying anything that will distract from the administration's woes.
This strategy has three problems. It does not provide a coherent alternative program for Iraq. It falls apart if things look up for Bush in Iraq. And it risks looking lukewarm in its support for US troops in the field. Iraq is full of dangers for Republicans. The polls are still very difficult for them. But the past few weeks have shown that Iraq holds plenty of dangers for Democrats too.
Just a few weeks ago, the MSM in the US barked daily not on if, but when, the Downies took control of Congress.
Those stories have stopped dead cold. The polls show it, the faces of the Left show it, and their strategy for failure shows it.
Although things can change - as they always do in American politics - do not be surprised if the Downies fail to capture either House in November.

This week, the US Supreme Court ruled that the terrorists held by the United States in Guantanamo Bay in Cuba have rights - to a trial like that of an American citizen, to being treated like the soldier of a country. In short, terrorists now have rights.
The world has been bitching since 2001 that we are making ourselves look bad by having terrorists imprisoned - humanely, of course - in Gitmo. They call on us to close the place, and treat the terrorists with kid gloves and give them rights.
However, when 4 Russian embassy workers were kidnapped and beheaded in Iraq this past week, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian Special Forces into that country to find the killers and execute them.
Wait a second...Putin is not imprisoning them? Giving them rights? Making sure their diapers are clean and their Koran nice and spiffy? He wants them dead?
Won't the world be shocked? Won't they protest this obviously lawless move?
Of course not - because Putin will tell them all to fuck off...something President Bush should have told the world a long time ago about Gitmo.
Opinion: Putin's License To Kill
This week Mayor Yuri Luzhkov is hosting Saudi prince Salman bin Abdul Aziz al Saud in Moscow. On Wednesday President Putin personally met with the prince and chose this particular meeting to announce to the world Russia's response to the jihadists who murdered five Russian diplomatic workers last week in Iraq: "find and destroy."
Not many people in the world are aware that since Putin was appointed President in 1999, Russia has revived its tradition of hunting down terrorists abroad. Given the traditional centralization of powers in Russia and the common national goal of revenge, there will be no Russian newspapers posting details about ongoing counterterrorist operations on their front pages, as happens with the New York Times in America. The Russian Duma is also not the U.S. Congress; Putin's order to kill has elicited nary a word of dissent.
In 2002, Ibn Khattab, an Arab veteran of the Afghan war operating in Chechnya, was killed by Russian forces. Khattab, who had been fundraising from the Persian Gulf states for the Chechen jihad, was poisoned by an under-cover Russian agent. In 2004, Zelimhan Yandarbiyev, a Chechen terrorist leader who claimed to be president of the non-existent "republic of Ichkeria" was hunted down by Russian operatives in Doha, Qatar (the same country where the Al-Jazeera satellite news network is based). Yandarbiyev's car was blown up by two under-cover agents who were carrying Russian diplomatic passports. During this operation, Yandarbiyev's twelve year-old son was severely injured. The attack outraged the Qatari government and both "diplomats" were captured and sentenced to death. Later they were extradited back to Moscow, and the Kremlin promised to punish and imprison them. No one knows what has happened to the agents since, but rumor has it that they were secretly decorated for a successful operation.
We applaud Putin's move. President Bush should order CIA and other SpecOp forces worldwide: no more nice guy. The world does not want us to hold these terrorists. Kill them, behead them, cut off their testicles, treat them like the refuse that they are. Then bury them - deep.
Unless The New York Times reports on it, this should quiet the world's insatiable appetite to protect terrorists - because there won't be any more to hold.
After the Palestinians kidnapped an Israeli soldier and is threatening to kill him unless 1,000 Pally terrorists are freed by Israel, the Israelis finally showed some balls and told the Pallies point-blank: harm the soldier, and your Prime Minister is DEAD.
Israel warns: free soldier or PM dies
Israel last night threatened to assassinate Palestinian Prime Minister Ismael Haniyeh if Hamas militants did not release a captured Israeli soldier unharmed.
The unprecedented warning was delivered to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in a letter as Israel debated a deal offered by Hamas to free Corporal Gilad Shalit.
It came as Israeli military officials readied a second invasion force for a huge offensive into Gaza.
Hamas's Gaza-based political leaders, including Mr Haniyeh, had already gone into hiding.
But last night's direct threat to kill Mr Haniyeh, a democratically elected head of state, sharply raised the stakes.
It is about time. Israel should have quietly assassinated the entire Hamas government months ago. Allowing it to grow like a cancer allowed this situation to arise. Let us hope PM Ehud Olmert has finally come to his senses in dealing with the Palestinian subhumans.
John Stone, a former Secretary of the Treasury in Australia, made a speech in which he said the unthinkable: he asked what was wrong with Islam and Muslims.
Stone should be applauded for his statement.
Cut & paste: Why are Muslims not integrating into Western societies?
We need to understand that the core of the Muslim problem - for the world, not merely for Australia - lies in the essence of Islam.
It is the problem of a culture that, for the past 500 years or so at least, has failed its adherents as its inward-looking theocracy has resulted in it falling further and further behind the West.
It is that sense of cultural failure (and) smouldering resentment that fuels the fires so busily stoked by the more extremist Muslim teachers. Fiercely exclusive rather than inclusive, Islam holds that church and state are inseparable; that women, while respected so long as they stick to their appointed place in the Islamic scheme of things, are less than equal to men generally; and that even the most extreme violence is justifiable when applied in pursuit of approved Islamic ends.
Until all that changes - and it can only be changed from within Islam, if indeed it can be changed at all - the Islamic culture will never reside in harmony with others.
This is where all those comfortable (one might even call them lazy) assumptions about our own Muslim community break down. Contrary to those assumptions, I do not believe that this latest body of newcomers among us will emulate the examples of their predecessors from, say, Italy, Greece, Poland, the Baltic states or, more recently, Vietnam, Hong Kong and China.
How can it be possible for them to become part of a united Australia when any Muslim woman who wishes to marry out risks not merely social and familial ostracism but outright violence, even death by way of honour killings, by her father or her brothers? Almost without exception, the only marriages occurring in Australia today between Muslims and non-Muslims involve conversion to Islam of the latter.
The high priests and priestesses of multiculturalism should not be surprised by this. It is, after all, a product - admittedly, an extreme one - of policies they have been espousing with such religious zeal for 30 years or more.
This reality of separateness, however, does not stop at the marriage line.
While individual ethnic communities throughout our post-war history have always tended to cluster together at first, gradually they have dispersed. My very nice next-door neighbours are Chinese, as are two other families down the street who, together with an Assyrian family, make up our own little example of that diversity of which our politicians so blandly prate.
So far as I can see, however, Muslims do not so much move out as move in.
In communities where large numbers of Muslims gather, non-Muslims are gradually driven out. It is then not long before there are established no-go areas where Muslim gangs flourish on the proceeds of drugs, extortion, armed robbery and so on.
In turn, as the host country's own laws are set aside in these no-go areas, there develop demands for the recognition of these areas as small states within the state, to be governed by sharia law, administered not by national courts but by sharia-type courts overseen by local imams.
In France, we have begun to see the ultimate expression of such developments. There, a public official is reported to have agreed to meet an imam outside the predominantly Muslim district of Roubaix which, according to the imam, was Islamic territory and closed to non-Muslims.
Similar demands can already be heard in Britain. To a more limited extent (so far), we have begun to hear them in Australia.
For the last 20-30 years, Muslims have been moving into countries they had never had significant numbers before. And, as Stone correctly states, they set up their own communities, their own set of laws, and then demand that the country recognize their own state within the nation. And countries - including the US - are more than willing to let Muslims have these rights so as to placate them and hope no terrorism will follow.
September 11, and all subsequent attacks prove that this strategy has failed.
Groups and lawyers who defend Muslim crimes need to be told: toe the line, follow the laws of the country and not Islamic law, or get the fuck out and go back to your original hell-hole from whence you came.
More of that will see less terrorism. Let us stand up against Muslims! They have done nothing but bore in to our societies and then try to change us to make themselves feel better.
That is called a cancer - and Islam is truly a cancer.
