Now that Tony Blair is out of office, his words carry less weight. But in this interview, done before he left office, he nails the problem - that "Islamists" are "absurd," and that they have no reason to be perpetrating terrorism. And he slams "civil liberties" assholes as "loopy loo."
These comments, of course, were made before the latest round of terrorist strikes by Muslims. But they are more correct now more than ever.
Blair launches stinging attack on 'absurd' British Islamists
Tony Blair has launched a powerful attack on 'absurd' British Islamists who have nurtured a false 'sense of grievance' that they are being oppressed by Britain and the United States.
In his most outspoken remarks on Islamists, the former Prime Minister warns that Britain is in danger of losing the battle against terrorists unless mainstream society confronts the threat.
Blair's remarks, in which he also attacks some civil liberty campaigners as 'loopy loo', were made in a Channel 4 documentary recorded last Tuesday on the eve of his departure from Downing Street.
'The idea that as a Muslim in this country that you don't have the freedom to express your religion or your views, I mean you've got far more freedom in this country than you do in most Muslim countries,' Blair told Observer columnist Will Hutton, who presents the documentary.
'The reason we are finding it hard to win this battle is that we're not actually fighting it properly. We're not actually standing up to these people and saying, "It's not just your methods that are wrong, your ideas are absurd. Nobody is oppressing you. Your sense of grievance isn't justified."'
Blair held out the example of the overthrow of the Taliban in Afghanistan - criticised by Islamists as an example of the heavy-handed imperial West oppressing Muslims - to highlight unfounded claims of grievance. He asked how it is possible to claim that Afghanistan's Muslims are being oppressed when the Taliban 'used to execute teachers for teaching girls in schools'.
Blair added: 'How are [we] oppressing them? You're oppressing them when you support the people who are trying to blow them up.'
Blair, who normally chooses his language carefully when he talks about Islamists, also takes a swipe at critics who accused him of undermining civil liberties. 'When I'm trying to change the law in order to make it easier to deport people who engage in terrorism - the idea that that's an assault on hundreds of years of British civil liberties is completely absurd. Some of what is written on this is loopy-loo in its extremism.'
Where was Blair before this? He should have been deporting those Muslims who now want to blow the country up.
Two car bombs have been found in central London - bombs made with propane and nails designed to kill and maim.
Who could have done something like this? Could it be dangerous Caucasians? Blacks? Australians? Reading this story from the leftwing rag The Independent, one does not know who the suspects are.
The hunt for the London terrorists: Attempt may show change of tactics
The London car bombers could not have destroyed the Tiger Tiger club and killed people in it, experts said last night. The huge manhunt for the would-be mass murderers by police and security services was given new urgency by an attack on Glasgow airport yesterday and the fear of further incidents.
However, it emerged that the Haymarket gas and nail bomb was almost certainly not big enough to have brought down the building, as previously reported. It would have killed and maimed within 100 metres.
Security forces have two theories. The first is that a recent crackdown stopped the terrorists getting their hands on as powerful a bomb as they would have liked. The second is that al-Qa'ida - still the most likely suspect - has changed its tactics. Instead of striking at showpiece buildings it is choosing smaller, unpredictable targets that will cause fear and panic on ordinary streets. One may, of course, have led to the other.
Police are also believed to be urgently seeking three men who went missing while under anti-terror control orders. One of them, a 26-year-old former Tube driver of Algerian descent, is alleged to have talked about wanting to blow up a nightclub. All three were previously thought to have left the country.
A first bomb was found in a Mercedes outside the Tiger Tiger club in Haymarket just before 2am on Friday. An ambulance crew treating a man who had hurt his head saw vapours in the car and alerted the police. Bomb disposal officers risked their lives to defuse the lethal combination of petrol, gas and nails inside.
Police think that an explosion here might have been intended to draw panicking revellers out on to the streets, where they would be have been joined by the emergency services. Then another, bigger bomb in a second Mercedes among them could have been triggered, causing hundreds of deaths.
Hey! So this means al-Qaeda is behind this? And what kind of religion is behind al-Qaeda? Is it Christianity? Judaism? This story does not mention any of that! We wonder why!
Update: Another member of this group of people rammed an SUV into the airport at Glasgow to try to kill people. And once again we need to guess who is behind this. Only if you read all the way down the story is the religion of the "suspects" noted, but with a wink and a "heck, we are not sure about this" kind of smugness.
Glasgow Attack Seen Tied to London Bombs
GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) - A Jeep Cherokee trailing a cascade of flames rammed into Glasgow airport on Saturday, shattering glass doors just yards from passengers at the check-in counters. Police said they believed the attack was linked to two car bombs found in London the day before.
Britain raised its terror alert to "critical" - the highest possible level - and the Bush administration announced plans to increase security at airports and on mass transit.
Five bystanders were wounded, though none seriously, police said.
One of the men in the car was in critical condition at a hospital with severe burns, while the other was in police custody, said Scottish Police Chief Constable Willie Rae. He said a "suspect device" was found on the man at the hospital and it was taken to a safe location where it was being investigated.
Rae would not say whether the device was a suicide belt. British security officials said evidence pointed toward the Glasgow attack being a suicide mission.
"I can confirm that we believe the incident at Glasgow airport is linked to the events in London yesterday," Rae said. "There are clearly similarities and we can confirm that this is being treated as a terrorist incident."
Police foiled the plot Friday after two cars were found in central London packed with explosives - one outside a nightclub near Piccadilly Circus and another parked nearby.
A British government security official said the methods used in the airport attack and Friday's thwarted plots were similar, with all three vehicles carrying large quantities of flammable materials.
So...suicide belts? Car bombs? Who could be behind this?
Go way, way down the story for this:
Police subdued the driver and a passenger, both described by witnesses as South Asian - a term used to refer to people from India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and other countries in the region. The previous round of terrorist activity in Britain, in July 2005, was largely carried out by local Muslims, raising ethnic tensions in Britain.
Omigod! Can it be that Muslims tried to kill people via car bombs and suicide bombings? Is that possible?

The Downercrats, now at 14% approval in those pesky polls that the media minus Fox (MMF) refuse to even mention, have decided that they only get more unpopular - if that were possible - if they try to impeach President Bush. We know that they do not have the votes to convict in the US Senate, so any impeachment try would only be an exercise in futility.
Nancy Pelosi (D-Nutjob), Speaker of the House, realizes that she does not have the votes to remove the president, so she has told her fellow leftwing loonies that she won't even try.
Nice one, Nancy - admit the obvious and wait for the slap on the back. Except, in this case, you are dealing with the far left lunatics in your party who are not happy to hear that their beloved impeachment try is now dead forever.
Darn, shucks, shit.
Pelosi on Bush: “He’s not worth impeaching”
I had the pleasure of subbing in for Sam for a conference call with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today. Although there were a good number of progressive bloggers in attendance with a lot to say, Pelosi pretty much dominated the conversation, sometimes answering questions before people could even ask them. I was impressed with how knowledgeable she was on environmental issues in particular, ranging from biofuel creation and consumption to raising CAFE standards. Good stuff. Dave Johnson of Seeing The Forest has a fairly thorough recap of the conversation.
Dave actually asked the question I want to address here. Pelosi was discussing the absolute lack of oversight and accountability that has been a hallmark of the Bush junta, and Dave said, simply, “What are you going to do about it?”
Pelosi’s argument against impeachment was, simply, that it wouldn’t be worth expending the political capital and effort to push the process forward. If the situation had been Bush coming in as a new president, she said, things might have been different, but with less than two years left on his watch and his record as a miserable failure etched in stone , the stronger weapon was oversight. Pelosi specifically mentioned the subpoena power that, she said, is making the Dem Congress “Bush’s worst nightmare.”
Imagine - Nancy P says that Bush is a "miserable failure" at the same time that the American people say that they would rather get the clap than expect the Downercrats doing anything of substance, which is why their approval ratings are at 14%. And they can only get lower!
But, impeachment is not the Downies' only problem - in six months in power, they have passed nothing of substance. Nothing.
And because they won't take stab at removing President Bush, the lefties are up in arms.
Nancy Pelosi: Can't win, don't try
Who knew that Nancy Pelosi would end up adhering to the Bart Simpson view of the universe? In the rarefied Washington air of the Speaker, the sure bet (sic) of winning the White House in 2008 trumps any attempt at holding this Administration accountable for its crimes against the Constitution and the American people. In other words, it's all about the party (and presumably the Benjamins). And if that means that George W. Bush and especially Dick Cheney are never held accountable for their crimes, well so be it. After all, what is the Constitution when compared to the coffers of the DSCC?
How funny it is to see the daft left turn on their fellow assholes in the US House.
But this happens when you allow leftwing psychotics to take control of our legislative process.

Our photo of the week: Harry Reid, Desperate (D-NV) Asshole, says that he is shocked and surprised that the American people blame him and Nancy Pelosi (right) for the lack of anything getting done in the 110th Congress.

Now that the fucking lunatics behind Hamas have taken over the Gaza Strip, al Qaeda's number two, Goatfucker-in-Charge Ayman al-Zawahiri (Arabic for "Goatfucker-in-Charge") says that Hamas should join with them and make one big group of fucking lunatics.
Al-Qaeda seeks unity with Hamas
Osama Bin Laden's number two has called on the Islamist group Hamas to unite with al-Qaeda after its victory in Gaza over Fatah, in a web-posted audiotape.
Ayman al-Zawahiri also warned against any attempt by Arab countries to wrest control of the Gaza Strip from Hamas.
Al-Qaeda has in the past criticised Hamas for taking part in the political process in the Palestinian territories.
This story is from our friends at the BBC. Of course, they cannot go one story without either accusing the United States or Israel of some horrific crime, or making another ridiculous comment. Instead of accusing everyone, including the US and Israel, of making life hard for Hamas, they make this statement, which makes one gasp at how ridiculous it is:
Hamas leaders, who espouse a more moderate brand of Islamist politics, have always shunned al-Qaeda advances.
Understand that one? Hamas espouses a more moderate brand of Islamist politics.
Take this statement into consideration: Palestinians who blow themselves up to kill innocent men, women, and children, and whose aim is to destroy the state of Israel by whatever means necessary, are more moderate. Than who? Al Qaeda?
The BBC should be done away with. Anyone who thinks that Hamas is more moderate than al Qaeda is not dealing with a full deck.
Of course, the BBC has nice things to say about Hamas because they employ them.
Wait, you ask: Employ them? As in "jobs"?
Yep - you heard right. They employ Hamas members as workers in the Palestinian areas.
Israel lets Hamas member enter Gaza
Despite Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) opposition and per the request of the BBC, the coordinator of government activities allowed a Hamas member who works for the BBC to enter the Gaza Strip last week to assist in efforts to release kidnapped journalist Alan Johnston.
Defense officials told The Jerusalem Post that a week ago, a request came from the BBC asking that a Palestinian employee of the news company who is believed to be a close associate of senior Hamas officials be allowed to enter Gaza.
The employee, who lives in Gaza, had traveled to Egypt with his wife for medical reasons and the BBC told Israeli officials that they believed he could assist in negotiating Johnston's release.
So, the Israeli security apparatus did not want this piece of shit to cross, but the Olmert government overrode them?
That's the story, folks. Olmert must be gone as Israeli PM as soon as possible, because he has been an unmitigated disaster for that country. At the same time, the BBC should be thrown out of Israel for employing terrorists in their company. And screw anyone who opposes it.

The Muslim world has many problems - their national sport is goatfucking, their entire population has an IQ of 18 (that includes the men), they do nothing but beat and attack women, and they all live in poverty. Oh - and the world may end if someone touches their Koran.
So, imagine how apeshit they all went this week when Britain bestowed a knighthood on their favorite punching bag, Salman Rushdie. For those who have forgotten, Rushdie wrote a book, "The Satanic Verses," in 1989 which the Islamic world found "a perversion of Islam" despite few if any Muslims reading it. (Few if any Muslims can actually read.)
New Rushdie protests after Britain defends award
ISLAMABAD (AFP) - Muslim anger flared Thursday after Britain defended Salman Rushdie's knighthood, with fresh protests against the novelist and Pakistani traders offering a big reward for his beheading.
The Indian-born Rushdie was given the award on Saturday, 18 years after he was sentenced to death by Iran's hardline clerical regime for writing what it said was a blasphemous book, "The Satanic Verses".
"We will give 10 million rupees (165,000 dollars) to anyone who beheads Rushdie," Islamabad traders' association leader Ajmal Baluch told around 200 people in one of the Pakistani capital's main bazaars.
The crowd chanted, "Cut off the head of Salman Rushdie!"
Luckily for all of us, we have found a number of photos of some of these protests - and boy, are they exciting!
Here we have one of the many Muslim morons, asking for Rushdie to be put on a trail. The Bozeman Trail?
Here, two Muslim assholes hold hands while burning the only clothes they own because they never wash them.
Here we have some Muslims burning Billy Barty in effigy.
The Muslim Flag Burning Council meets to destroy the only flag they sold this month.
These signs read, in Arabic, "We are idiotic fuckers."
Never known for their ability to spell anything correctly, the Dumb Muslims Society (DMS) posts their signs, such as "Queen Elizebith, Shame to You," "Rushdi is the Evil," and "Students are Ready to Kill Rushdi," once again showing their incredible Islamic ability to use their single-digit IQs to misspell peoples' names.
And now for something special...The Muslim Armpit Brigade!
Check out the moron in the middle with the white beard - is he yelling against Rushie, or pursing his lips from the incredible smell from the human stink of his fellow idiotic Muslims? Your guess is as good as ours!

One of the worst films of the year debuted this week - "Sicko," by fat tub of lard Marxist Michael Moore, uses lies and half-truths to slam the US health care system.
How is the movie rated? What awards will it win from the pathetic leftists in Hollywood?

In a stunning photo taken from Camp Goatfucker somewhere in Pakistan, Ayman al-Zawahiri, number 2 in al Qaeda, is seen taking a massive shit.
It must be all the goats.

The Marxists at the BBC commissioned a group last year to report back to them on their "bias" they have been accused of, and they must have expected that the report would whitewash their disgusting record. But the committee instead slammed the BBC as a leftwing biased institution from top to bottom.
Now, if the media had merely looked into the postings on this forum, they would see that the BBC is not just "biased" - it is a Marxist-run thugocracy.
Bias at the Beeb - official
There are some things you do not need an official report to tell you - that John Prescott thinks he is a babe magnet, that President Mugabe is not entirely in favour of white farmers and that Al-Qaeda takes a pretty dim view of the West. The report commissioned by the BBC into itself concluded with something equally blindingly obvious. It said that the organisation is institutionally biased and especially gullible to the blandishments of politically driven celebrities, such as Bono and Bob Geldof. Almost anyone in Britain could have told the BBC that for free, but maybe it’s better to have it in an official report.
All media organisations are biased and that applies especially to newspapers. But our bias is openly declared. If readers want different views they have no compulsion to pay and can go elsewhere. The BBC is in a different category; everyone has to pay for it and it is in the tricky position of being founded to be free from bias. It is meant to be a beacon of objective truth in a wildly polarised world. A tall order. In theory even rabid rightwingers and demented leftists can listen or watch (and increasingly read online) the BBC without discerning any tilt. But what emerges from the report is a picture of an organisation with a liberal, anti-American bias and an almost teenage fascination with fashionable causes. The report singles out the BBC’s overwhelming and uncritical backing for the campaign over Live Aid and now the Live Earth concerts on global warming.
Nice tale, but the BBC was not just biased in favor of "Live Aid" and "Live Earth." The BBC was one of the worst anti-American and anti-Semitic "news" networks in the world, followed by Al Jazeera, CNN, MSNBC, and The New York Times. It clearly has a bias against America, against President George W. Bush, and against Israel. It shows stories showing poor Palestinians, poor Muslims, and those who are "victims" of America, like those wonderful souls held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
The BBC should be torn apart and have their news division taken over by a bipartisan group who will bring fairness and balance to their reporting. Having an Alan Johnston working for them is not a help - it is part of the problem.

China has now surpassed the United States as the most pollution-emitting country in the world. And whose fault is that? According to the dunces at the BBC, it is the United States.
Yep. It is all our fault.
China building more power plants
China is now building about two power stations every week, the top climate change official at the UK Foreign Office, John Ashton, has said.
He said there was no point blaming China for rising global CO2 emissions.
Rich nations had to set an example of low-carbon development for China to follow, Mr Ashton told the BBC.
His statement came as a new report suggested that China may have already become the world's biggest polluter - much earlier than expected.
Wait - there is no point in blaming China? Who do we blame - Australia? Tibet? Norway?
Of course not. We blame America.
He pointed out that much of China's emissions growth was being driven by consumers in the West buying Chinese goods, and noted that China's emissions per person were still well below those of rich nations.
It is estimated that the average American still pollutes between five and six times more than the average Chinese person.
Climate sceptics in the UK have been asking why Britons should switch off lights, turn down central heating and avoid foreign flights in order to save carbon when the Chinese are increasing emissions at their current rate.
"Responsibility for China's soaring emissions lies not just in Beijing but also in Washington, Brussels and Tokyo," said Greenpeace UK director John Sauven.
Look who is asked for their opinions in this story - a moron who blames the US for China's pollution and a moron from Greenpeace. No balance from someone who could blame China.
That's the BBC - blame America first, in all their rotten liberal glory.
The Muslims in the UK have decided that they should have their women wear a full veil and burqa, and fuck those people who don't like it.
Britain seems to want to surrender to these subhumans - and let them live with their decision. But if anyone in the US does this, they should have the veil forcibly removed, or they should be deported.
Head-to-toe Muslim veils test tolerance of secular Britain
Increasingly, Muslim women in Britain take their children to school and run errands covered head to toe in flowing black gowns that allow only a slit for their eyes.
Like little else, their appearance has unnerved Britons, testing the limits of tolerance in this stridently secular nation. Many veiled women say they are targets of abuse. At the same time, efforts are growing to place legal curbs on the full Muslim veil, known as the niqab.
The past year has seen numerous examples: A lawyer dressed in a niqab was told by an immigration judge that she could not represent a client because, he said, he could not hear her. A teacher wearing a niqab was told by a provincial school to go home. A student who was barred from wearing a niqab took her case to the courts, and lost. In fact, the British education authorities are proposing a ban on the niqab in schools altogether.
David Sexton, a columnist for The Evening Standard, wrote recently that Britain has been "too deferential" toward the veil. "I find such garb, in the context of a London street, first ridiculous and then directly offensive," he said.
Although the number of women wearing the niqab has increased in the past several years, only a tiny percentage of women among Britain's two million Muslims cover themselves completely. It is impossible to say how many exactly.
Some who wear the niqab, particularly younger women who have taken it up recently, concede that it is a frontal expression of Islamic identity, which they have embraced since Sept. 11, 2001, as a form of rebellion against the policies of the Blair government in Iraq and at home.
"For me it is not just a piece of clothing, it's an act of faith, it's solidarity," said a 24-year-old program scheduler at a broadcasting company in London, who would allow only her last name, Al Shaikh, to be printed, saying she wanted to protect her privacy. "9/11 was a wake-up call for young Muslims," she said.
9/11 was a wake-up call - for the entire world to treat Muslims like the terrorists that they are. End of argument.

The NY Times, the worthless crap which considers itself a newspaper, is raising prices because it is slowly going bankrupt.
It couldn't happen to nicer people
The Times Is Raising Newspaper Prices
The New York Times Company will increase the newsstand and home-delivery prices for the newspaper next month, the company’s chief executive said at an investor conference yesterday.
The increases will produce an additional $7 million to $8 million in revenue this year and $14 million to $16 million a year after that, the chief executive, Janet L. Robinson, said at the conference, which was sponsored by the Newspaper Association of America.
What the dimwits at The Times don't realize is what any capitalist, or student of capitalism, understands: when people do not want a product at a certain price, raising the price does not bring more people to buy the product - it causes more people to reject the product.
So, here's for more people rejecting The New York Times.
Here is the list of alleged journalists who are giving money to political campaigns - note that there is a 9 to 1 disparity of giving to Downercrats than to Republicans.
The list: Journalists who wrote political checks
MTV News, Gideon Yago, "Choose or Lose" presidential correspondent, $200 to Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark in January 2004; $500 to America Coming Together, which campaigned against President Bush, in September 2004; $250 to the Democratic National Committee in September 2004; $250 to VoteVets, which is running ads against the president's handling of the war, in March 2006, and $250 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in October 2006. He said he is no longer at MTV News.
Read what "Gideon Yago" (a psuedonym?) says is his excuse:
"I don't understand. Things that I do as a private citizen?
"We're not a traditional news network in the sense of NBC or Fox or CBS.
"We're sensitive about equal time or fairness. We're non-biased.
"I mean, what the f---, man?
"I came back from doing coverage in Iraq and was very moved by what I saw. I was never told by my boss or anyone that we couldn't give to a campaign.
"I'm not a journalist now. Writing fiction.
"I would never qualify what we do as journalism. Ninety percent of what we did was simple identification, after 9/11: Who is Rumsfeld? Who is Colin Powell? Who is Al Qaeda?
"I try to call it as you see it.
"After my second trip to Iraq in 2004, I felt the conventional news media was not doing a good enough job of conveying the horrors and the failures of the war in Iraq.
"At 18 I was a registered Republican. At 24, I was a registered Democrat.
"I tried very hard — our job was not an indoctrination process — I tried to be as professional as possible whenever possible.
"We were a non-traditional news outlet. We were nonpartisan.
""OK, I've been rebuked. Thank you for spanking me in public.
"Do you hand in all your rights as a public citizen when you do this?
"I mean — who's your editor? I'm going to call him right now."
And this works as a journalist. It is sickening that this imbecilic idiot melds minds with his perversion.
Senator Fred Thompson, revving up for a presidential run, is showing why he is heads above those currently running: he tells it like it is. And here, he slams the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), one of the most vile and disgusting organizations who stand with terrorists and murderers in opposition to America and Israel.
Read what Thompson says. He makes sense.
Good News about CAIR
I've talked before about the Council on American-Islamic Relations -- most recently because it filed that lawsuit against Americans who reported suspicious behavior by Muslims on a U.S. Airways flight. Better known just as CAIR, the lobbying group has come under a lot of scrutiny lately for its connections to terror-supporting groups. This time, though, The Washington Times has uncovered some very good news about the group.
For years, CAIR has claimed to represent millions of American Muslims. In fact, they claim to represent more Muslim in American than ... there are in America. This has alarmed Americans in general as the group often seems to be more aligned with our enemies than us -- which isn't surprising as it spun off from a group funded by Hamas. As you know, Hamas has been waging a terrorist war against Israel and calls for its total destruction. It also promises to see America destroyed. Nowadays, Hamas is busy murdering its Palestinian political rivals.
Even with this history, and CAIR's conspicuous failure to condemn Hamas by name, it has been treated as if represents Muslim Americans by our own government. The good news is that the financial support CAIR claims to have among American Muslims is a myth. We know this because The Washington Times got hold of the group's IRS tax records.
CAIR's dues-paying membership has shrunk 90 percent since 9/11 -- from 29,000 in 2000 to only 1,700 last year. CAIR's annual income from dues plunged from $733,000 to $59,000. Clearly, America's Muslims are not supporting this group -- and I'm happy to hear about it.
Of course, every silver lining seems to have a cloud; and this cloud is that CAIR's spending is running about $3 million a year. They’ve opened 25 new chapters in major cities across the country even as their dues shrank to a pittance. The question is; who’s funding CAIR?
CAIR's not saying. The New York Times earlier this year reported that the backing is from "wealthy Persian Gulf governments" including the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Obviously, we have a bigger problem here than the one with CAIR.
We've spoken about this issue before - where CAIR is getting their money...but where is the American media on it? No where, that's where. They would rather discuss Paris Hilton.

As we have said for some time, when President Bush's job approval ratings sink, the media is all over the story like flies on dog shit. News? Of course not - because President Bush is not running for office again.
But when polls show the Downie-controlled Congress getting more and more unpopular each passing day, what does the media talk about? Of course - President Bush's approval ratings.
You can't make this stuff up.
Congressional Job Approval Dips Again This Month
The honeymoon phase is over for the new Congress, as the public's ratings of Congress are down again this month. The latest congressional job approval rating (24%) is the lowest for the institution since Democrats took control of both houses in January, and is far below the 37% registered in February. The decline has been most evident among Democrats, whose ratings of Congress now match those of Republicans. Congressional job approval ratings are typically not positive, but ratings as low as the current one are uncommon. The poll also finds that only about one in four Americans say they are satisfied with the way things are going in this country, little changed since last month but still at its lowest point in over a decade.
According to the June 11-14, 2007, survey, 24% of Americans approve and 71% disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job. Congressional approval is down five points since last month and more than 10 points from the higher support levels in January and February following the Democratic takeover. The current 24% rating is similar to the poor ratings Congress received last year, with Americans essentially voting to take control of Congress away from the Republicans in November.
So, the big story is that the Downies in Congress, having done squat shit and crap since taking control in January, are as popular as diarrhea. And the media won't tell you this, because - ulp! - you might think that they are doing nothing. Can't have any of that now, can we?

Imagine for a second if one of the Republicans running for President helped one of their good buddies get taxpayer money, who then stole it. And the candidate did not just work with the scumbag - the candidate aided him and abetted him for years, and even dipped his wick into the pie and made tons of money from the graft and corruption. And lied to reporters when he said he did not work for the thief, even after letters showing how he helped the crook surface. What would be the media's reaction? SCANDAL! CORRUPTION! THIS WILL SINK THE REPUBLICANS!
So, where is the outrage/coverage/flies on shit when the asshole caught in the web of thievery is Democrat Barack "Banamarama" Obama? How long will the media cover up for this scumbag?
An Obama Patron and Friend Until an Indictment
Antoin Rezko, an entrepreneur of considerable charm who found riches in fast food and real estate, is known around Chicago as a collector of politicians.
Back in the 1990s, Mr. Rezko’s office was adorned with framed photos of candidates he viewed as up-and-comers. Among them was Barack Obama, a state legislator whose first campaign donations included $2,000 from Mr. Rezko’s companies. As Mr. Obama built a career that carried him to the Senate in 2004, Mr. Rezko was there with him, holding fund-raisers and rallying support.
Now, as Mr. Obama runs for president, the once-beneficial relationship with his old friend and patron has become problematic.
Last fall, Mr. Rezko was indicted on federal charges of business fraud and influence peddling involving the administration of Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich of Illinois, whose picture was also on Mr. Rezko’s wall. Since then, Mr. Obama, a Democrat, has had to answer questions about a land deal with Mr. Rezko’s wife, Rita, and about other ties to him.
Since early June, Mr. Obama has given to charity more than $21,000 in donations that his Senate campaign had received from Rezko associates now linked to the federal inquiries. He gave away $11,500 from Mr. Rezko himself last fall.
Mr. Obama says he never did any favors for Mr. Rezko, who raised about $150,000 for his campaigns over the years and was once one of the most powerful men in Illinois. There is no sign that Mr. Obama, who declined to be interviewed for this article, did anything improper.
Mr. Obama has portrayed Mr. Rezko as a one-time fund-raiser whom he had occasionally seen socially. But interviews with more than a dozen political and business associates suggest that the two men were closer than the senator has indicated.
Mr. Obama turned to Mr. Rezko for help at several important junctures. Records show that when Mr. Obama needed cash in the waning days of his losing 2000 Congressional campaign, Mr. Rezko rounded up thousands of dollars from business contacts. In 2003, Mr. Rezko helped Mr. Obama expand his fund-raising for the Senate primary by being host of a dinner at his Mediterranean-style home for 150 people, including some whose names have since come up in the influence scandal.
And where is this scandal to hit the Governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich? How come when George Ryan, the former Governor of Illinois, was quickly indicted and convicted of his corruption?
Who is protecting Obama? And why has not one Republican in the US Senate called for an investigation into Obama's ties to Rezko?

When the Climate Nazis claim that there is no scientific evidence that global warming does not exist, they make statements that they either know are flat-out false, or - worse yet - they are just plain stupid.
With this in mind, read this opinion piece in the Australian newspaper the Courier Mail, in which those who continue to glaum onto the global warming charade are said to be filled with a "load of hot air."
And read the science - it destroys the fake bullshit of the Climate Nazis.
High price for load of hot air
The salient facts are these. First, the accepted global average temperature statistics used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change show that no ground-based warming has occurred since 1998. Oddly, this eight-year-long temperature stasis has occurred despite an increase over the same period of 15 parts per million (or 4 per cent) in atmospheric CO2.
Second, lower atmosphere satellite-based temperature measurements, if corrected for non-greenhouse influences such as El Nino events and large volcanic eruptions, show little if any global warming since 1979, a period over which atmospheric CO2 has increased by 55 ppm (17 per cent).
Third, there are strong indications from solar studies that Earth's current temperature stasis will be followed by climatic cooling over the next few decades.
How then is it possible for Griffin to assert so boldly that human-caused global warming is happening?
Well, he is in good company for similar statements have been made recently by several Western heads of state at the G8 summit meeting. For instance, German Chancellor Angela Merkel asserts climate change (i.e. global warming) "is also essentially caused by humankind".
In fact, there is every doubt whether any global warming at all is occurring at the moment, let alone human-caused warming.
For leading politicians to be asserting to the contrary indicates something is very wrong with their chain of scientific advice, for they are clearly being deceived. That this should be the case is an international political scandal of high order which, in turn, raises the question of where their advice is coming from.
Only one word comes to mind when it comes to the Climate Nazis: fraud. Simple and complete fraud.

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Osama Barama Bananarama, the untalented doop who thinks he can be President after 2 years in the US Senate, was heavily involved in helping Tony Rezko, a crooked land dealer, steal $14 million from taxpayers. Obama's response? "There's nothing here." And the media, except for a few examples, tend to agree, because they would love to have a black crook in the White House as long as he has a "D" after his name.
Obama's letters for Rezko
As a state senator, Barack Obama wrote letters to city and state officials supporting his political patron Tony Rezko's successful bid to get more than $14 million from taxpayers to build apartments for senior citizens.
The deal included $855,000 in development fees for Rezko and his partner, Allison S. Davis, Obama's former boss, according to records from the project, which was four blocks outside Obama's state Senate district.
Obama's letters, written nearly nine years ago, for the first time show the Democratic presidential hopeful did a political favor for Rezko -- a longtime friend, campaign fund-raiser and client of the law firm where Obama worked -- who was indicted last fall on federal charges that accuse him of demanding kickbacks from companies seeking state business under Gov. Blagojevich.
The letters appear to contradict a statement last December from Obama, who told the Chicago Tribune that, in all the years he's known Rezko, "I've never done any favors for him."
On Tuesday, Bill Burton, press secretary for Obama's presidential campaign, said the letters Obama wrote in support of the development weren't intended as a favor to Rezko or Davis.
"This wasn't done as a favor for anyone," Burton said in a written statement. "It was done in the interests of the people in the community who have benefited from the project.
This is now a major scandal - one that Obama and the media are trying to cover up.
Write your congressman, your US Senator, your local media outlet, and ask: what is being done to investigate how a sitting US Senator, running for President, helped a buddy steal millions from the American people? Do we have to wait until this scumbag Obama is under oath and lies about it before we get something moving?

Imagine this: in 2004, the CIA came up with a plan to assassinate 11 bomb making terrorists in Iraq. Great, huh? What happened? The CIA General Counsel's office said that such a plan was illegal, and called a halt to it.
Wait - illegal? To kill bomb making terrorists who kill and maim American soldiers? Illegal?
That's is why lawyers should be shot. They are losing this war for us.
Lawyers Versus the Troops
What a scoop buried within David Ignatius's column in the Washington Post the other day: "There may be an unlimited supply of explosives in Iraq, but there is not an unlimited supply of people who know how to wire the detonators," Mr. Ignatius reported. "In 2004, CIA operatives in Iraq believed that they had identified the signatures of 11 bomb makers. They proposed a diabolical — but potentially effective — sabotage program that would have flooded Iraq with booby-trapped detonators designed to explode in the bomb makers' hands. But the CIA general counsel's office said no. The lawyers claimed that the agency lacked authority for such an operation, one source recalled."
It sounds to us like a fine operation with which to have gone ahead. Instances in which the Bush administration is alleged to have exceeded its legal authority in prosecuting the war on terror — such as the NSA wiretapping, or the indefinite detention on American soil of a supposed "enemy combatant" — receive exhaustive press coverage and congressional attention. But cases such as the one recounted by Mr. Ignatius, in which the Bush administration bows to legal niceties in ways that make it more dangerous for American troops and civilians, attract far less scrutiny.
We are in but the early stages of the war against Islamist terror; it is not too late to get moving. If the authority for such an operation is indeed lacking, Congress or the president could move to rectify the situation by legislation or executive order — and they owe it to our GIs to do it, like, yesterday. Using legal pecksniffery as a reason not to act makes the Bush administration look like the Clinton administration, which, as the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States recounted in its report, had the chance to act against Osama bin Laden but repeatedly flinched, in part because of legal concerns.
The CIA "lacks authority" to kill terrorists.
We have really gone downhill. This story is disgusting.
John Murtha (D-Fruitcake) is at it again. First, he tried to steamroll an earmark of $23 million for some little-known (and not needed) "National Drug Intelligence Center" in his district. When House Republicans would not play ball and tried to get the earmark removed, Murtha threatened them - a violation of the rules of the House. And when Republicans threatened to call for an ethics hearing for Murtha, the Downies voted it down: "ethics" not being in their vocabulary.
Now, to keep the $23 million, Murtha wrote a letter to House leaders saying that his precious center, again in his district, was going to take charge of the "no fly" list for airlines. This is strange, because the Department of Homeland Security says that is not true, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence asked that the center be closed down as useless.
Now, imagine if a Republican wrote a letter packed with lies to get an appropriation of $23 million for something not needed - there would be calls for an independent counsel, a special prosecutor, and CNN and MSNBC would be doing hour-long specials on this crook, liar, and thief.
But, it is John Murthafucker, so he is allowed to lie and cheat and steal, because, after all, he is against the war in Iraq. So that makes it okay.
Transfer of terrorist no-fly list 'earmarked'?
To secure congressional funding for a pet project, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., made a surprising claim: The little-known National Drug Intelligence Center was about to take charge of the "vitally important" terrorist no-fly list.
Murtha's news, in a letter he sent to the House Intelligence Committee last month, came as a surprise to the nation's intelligence community. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence already had recommended that the NDIC, in Murtha's hometown of Johnstown, Pa., be closed for poor performance. It also puzzled the Justice Department, NDIC's parent agency, where spokesman Dean Boyd said there are no "current" plans for such a transition.
Murtha got the committee to approve a $23 million "earmark" for the facility, anyway. Intelligence Committee member Mike Rogers, R-Mich., said he and his colleagues never saw Murtha's letter with the apparently inflated claim.
Murtha's special request is one of 26 such earmarks worth a total of $96 million included in the intelligence bill OK'd by the House of Representatives last month and up for Senate approval in late June. Details of the requests have been made public, thanks to new rules requiring transparency in earmarks that the House's new Democratic leadership adopted in January.
Call your congressman or congresswoman, and ask: will someone ask for an ethics investigation of Murtha? Will anyone stop this scumbag?

In 2006, when the Republican-led Congress pushed every earmark, or personal pet project, into budgets, the media had a field day - every Republican was called corrupt. Aand then Nancy Pelosi (D-Nutjob) said that if the Downies took control of Congress, they would "do away" with earmarks.
Alas, alack! Downies win control! And what, pray tell, happened? Earmarks increased! And Downies took offense at any suggestion that they should act on their promise and do away with them! And the media, which excoriated Republicans, yawned and covered more important stories, like making sure Paris Hilton went to prison!
And this week, the Downies went one step further: they said that their earmarks would not even be debated on - in fact, they would stuff them into budget and other bills at the END of the debate, when the bill is ready to go to the White House for the President's signature!
Republicans in the House revolted, and made the Downies back down. News? Of course. In the liberal media? Of course not.
House Republicans claim victory in earmark reform showdown
House Republicans banded together this week to force Democrats to restore GOP earmark reforms that brought real transparency and accountability to the budget process.
Faced with a united Republican Conference, the Democratic leadership backed down on their plan to hide earmarks in a series of multi-billion dollar slush funds and, effective immediately, agreed to allow Republicans to challenge wasteful spending in appropriations bills on the House floor.
As part of the deal completed after extensive negotiations that ended late today, Republicans agreed to allow two appropriations bills (Homeland Security and Military Quality of Life) – bills that include few or no earmarks – to move forward immediately. All 10 remaining appropriations bills will come to the floor later with their earmarks fully disclosed and subject to challenge by any lawmaker – a key element of the 2006 GOP reforms.
The issue of transparency and accountability in government spending has been at the forefront of congressional action all year. In January the majority approved a conveniently-flawed rules package that made it harder than ever to identify earmarks tucked quietly into spending bills and all but impossible to remove them.
The rules allowed the majority to declare legislation loaded with millions of dollars in earmarks as "earmark free" – a process exploited by Rep. John Murtha, D-PA, to secure passage of an illegitimate taxpayer-funded earmark in a bill meant to fund our intelligence activities, over the vehement objections of House Republicans.
As time wore on, the majority abandoned any pretense of fiscal responsibility and purposely wasted time on veto-bait legislation that never had any chance of becoming law. Rather than getting the appropriations process moving, they focused all of their energies on undermining our troops.
Then came a decision by Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, D-WI, to not only make all earmarks secret, but to replace them in Democratic spending bills with multi-billion dollar slush funds – blank spots to be filled in at a later date, all hidden from serious public scrutiny.
The liberal media has not had one word to say against Obey, or Murtha, or Pelosi. That Republicans, in the minority, forced them to back down, is quite a story, one that liberals would have covered had they done it.

Imagine for a moment that we had Rudy Guiliani, or President Bush, making a speech several years ago in which they said something completely different than what they are saying now - the media would pounce and show the old video time after time, and ask about the hypocrisy.
Now, someone has found a speech done by Al Gore, then the Downie VP candidate, in September 1992, in which he denounces President George H.W. Bush for not confronting Iraq, which Gore slams as a "terrorist" state.
And today? Gore and his fellow Downies say that there is no terrorism, and that Iraq was not a threat.
And where does this play? CNN? MSNBC? Of course not. It is on Youtube.
This is why the liberal media outlets in this country and around the world (the BBC, for instance) cannot be trusted - because they only tell part of the story, and usually it is a part that does not make their fellow liberals look bad.
The Palestinian lowlifes are at each other's throats, killing each other in the streets. Fox, CNN, and even MSNBC are starting to use the term "civil war" more and more with regards to the subhuman Pallies. And, today, the Pallie Prez dissolved their "government" (run by terrorists for terrorists) and declared a "state of emergency."
Israel can now stand back and watch these thugs kill each other off. How special!
Hamas Seizing Control of Gaza Strip
Hamas fighters launched a fierce offensive on Gaza City Wednesday, firing mortars and rockets at Fatah's main security bases and the president's compound as the Islamic group appeared close to taking control of the entire Gaza Strip.
Fatah's forces were crumbling fast, with some fighters seen fleeing their security posts and hundreds of others surrendering, hands raised, to masked Hamas gunmen.
A Hamas military victory in Gaza could split Palestinians into a Hamas-controlled Gaza and a Fatah-run West Bank, and push the prospect of statehood even further away. It could also set the stage for a bloody confrontation with Israel, which might intervene to prevent attacks from Gaza.
In the southern town of Khan Younis, Hamas militants surrounded a security headquarters and warned everyone inside to leave or they would blow it up, witnesses said. The building was then destroyed by a bomb planted in a tunnel underneath it, said Ali Qaisi, a presidential guard spokesman.
An Associated Press reporter saw defeated Fatah fighters streaming out of the building after turning over their weapons to Hamas militants. Hamas took weapons, clothes and vehicles and flew a green Islamic flag over the building, then celebrated by firing in the air and passing out candy.
So, according to even the most optimistic assessment, the Pallies are about to kill each other in the streets.
But...alas alack!...the BBC says that everything is fine, and that these "Gaza rivals" have "agreed on a ceasefire."
This just in: the Titanic sunk, but the BBC thinks that all 1,500 dead people are still alive because they can swim.
Gaza rivals 'agree on ceasefire'
Hamas and Fatah say they have agreed to the terms of a new truce to end days of fighting in Gaza that has left 80 people dead.
In a joint statement, leaders from both sides called for an end to fighting.
Deputy Palestinian Prime Minister Azam al-Ahmad, a senior Fatah official, said the group had agreed to a list of conditions from Hamas for a truce.
But Hamas's military wing says it has received no orders to put down its guns and clashes are continuing in Gaza.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, of Fatah, and Prime Minister Ismail Haniya, of Hamas, issued a statement broadcast on Palestinian television in which they called on all sides to halt the fighting.
So, we have no truce - we have a "hope" for a truce. That is not what the BBC said - they said that "Gaza rivals agree on ceasefire."
Can we all say bullshit, horseshit, bullcrap? Any way you say it, it spells "BBC."

The membership for CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, soon to be renamed "America Surrender to Islam," is going down faster than Harry Reid's popularity ratings. That could be because CAIR stands for the most pro-terrorist, anti-American and pro-Islamic extremist ideology. They should not be out hawking their sickness - they should be in jail or deported.
CAIR membership plummets
Membership in the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has declined more than 90 percent since the 2001 terrorist attacks, Audrey Hudson will report in Tuesday's editions of The Washington Times.
According to tax documents obtained by The Times, the number of reported members spiraled down from more than 29,000 in 2000 to less than 1,700 in 2006, a loss of membership that caused the Muslim rights group's annual income from dues to drop from $732,765 in 2000, when yearly dues cost $25, to $58,750 last year, when the group charged $35.
The organization instead is relying on about two dozen individual donors a year to contribute the majority of the money for CAIR's budget, which reached nearly $3 million last year.
Asked about the decline, Parvez Ahmed, CAIR board chairman, pointed to the number of individual donors to the organization.
"We are proud that our grass-roots support in the American Muslim community has allowed CAIR to grow from having eight chapters and offices in 2001 to having 33 today," Mr. Ahmed said.
So, where can an organization raise less money yet continue to open offices? Can anyone say "Foreign Islamic Terror Money"?
And the American media did not even bother to report this, except Fox News. Because the liberals love to show off CAIR as some "civil liberties organization" and give them an opportunity to tell everyone how poor Muslims in America are having their rights taken away by the evil Bush administration. To show that CAIR is a front group for terrorists, and that their membership in the US is drying up, cuts the liberal argument to pieces.

When Harry Reid, the crooked thieving scumbag who happens to be the leader of the Downercrats in the US Senate, recently cracked that he would not take "advice" from Vice President Cheney because his approval rating was so low, the media had a huge laugh. Reid mocks Cheney! Hardy har har!
Now the shoe is on the other foot, as the American people have gotten wise to the do-nothing policies of Reid and his fellow scumbag Downies, and Reid's popularity is down to 19%.
Hardy har har, as the media likes to say - the same media which never reported these numbers. Par for the course, right?
Harry Reid’s Favorables Fall to 19%
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is now viewed favorably by 19% of American voters and unfavorably by 45%. Just 3% have a Very Favorable opinion while 22% hold a Very Unfavorable views.
Reid has been very visible over the past week in the furor over immigration reform. The effort to pass a bill that was more popular in Congress than among voters may have hurt public perceptions of the Democratic leader. His ratings are down from a month ago when 26% had a favorable opinion of the Democratic Senator. Reid’s highest ratings were 30% favorable in February.
Each week, Rasmussen Reports updates favorability ratings for a number of political figures and others in the news. The latest numbers for Defense Secretary Robert Gates reflect a steady decline in recent months. He is now viewed favorably by 36% of Americans and unfavorably by 34%. Last December, 49% have a favorable opinion and only 26% held a negative opinion.
And remember this tidbit for future argument purposes:
Vice President Dick Cheney’s numbers held steady—38% favorable and 58% unfavorable.
Hey, Harry Reid: DROP DEAD.
Hardy har har.

The city of Denver, Colorado, has been taken over by the most extreme Climate Nazis in America. And they are fully prepared to fine everyone to death to stop "global warming" and destroy Colorado's economy while doing so.
Denver targets global warming
Denver is gearing up to fight global warming, and residents may soon be asked to make personal sacrifices to help save the planet.
The new plan is aimed at making Denver a national leader in reducing gas emissions that have been linked to global warming, giving a major push to alternative energy, stepping up recycling and changing building codes to encourage energy conservation.
But the proposal also contains some ideas that may be unpopular, such as penalizing heavy users of electricity and natural gas and basing auto insurance premiums on the number of miles traveled.
The ambitious goal is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 4.4 million metric tons by 2020, the equivalent of eliminating two small coal-fired power plants or taking 500,000 cars off the road.
Mayor John Hickenlooper has made the "climate action plan" a centerpiece of his second term in office. More than two dozen people from business and community groups met for several months with city staff to hammer out the plan. Many of them fear Colorado will be slammed hard by global warming, with more droughts and forest fires.
"There was a sense we have to be bold," said Beth Conover, director of Greenprint Denver, the city office that coordinated the plan. "What's the cost of inaction to our water supply and tourism industry?"
Now, listen to this pathetic crap from the illiterate left:
Recycling plays a crucial role in Denver's plan. It would join other Colorado cities that already have moved to aggressively to foster recycling.
Fort Collins, for one, has set an ambitious goal of diverting 50 percent of its waste from landfills. As part of the effort, the city recently banned throwing away old computers, TVs, cell phones and other electrical items, requiring that they be recycled instead.
Fort Collins also has mandated that people who leave extra bags of trash for pickup be charged by the bag.
"The most remarkable difference is that you used to see people with 15 bags of lawn clippings on the street; you don't see that anymore," said Susie Gordon, senior environmental planner for the city.
Here is how to get rid of 15 bags of clippings: dump them somewhere in a forest, or by the side of the road.
Liberals, in their rush to be do-gooders, don't realize that people will become criminals to adhere to their ridiculous rules. And then liberals think they are getting somewhere with this kind of crap.
They are: destroying the American way of life. But do they care? Of course not. Because liberalism by its own definition destroys life.

Imagine if one of the leading scientists in the United States blew the lid off the scam that is biofuels - that he said that the whole thing was a scam. The liberal media, covering for the Climate Nazis, would dismiss him as a shill of the Bush administration.
But, wait! The person saying this is a shill of the Blair government in England, and they are one of the worst of the Climate Nazis. How to account for this? A bad hair day? Pickles in the lettuce? What could have gone wrong for this man to have told...the truth?
Top scientist says biofuels are scam
THE government’s policy of promoting biofuels for transport will come under harsh attack this week from one of its senior science advisers.
Roland Clift will tell a seminar of the Royal Academy of Engineering that the plan to promote bioethanol and biodiesel produced from plants is a “scam”.
Clift, professor of environmental technology at Surrey University, sits on the scientific advisory council of Defra, David Miliband’s environment department.
He will tell the seminar that promoting the use of biofuels is likely to increase greenhouse gas emissions.
Clift’s comments will amount to a direct challenge to Miliband, who has published a strategy promoting biofuels. It coincides with a surge of anger among environmentalists over the weak pledges on climate change that emerged from last week’s G8 summit.
The audience on Thursday will also include Howard Dalton, Miliband’s chief scientist at Defra, who is expected to speak in defence of biofuels.
Clift said: “Biodiesel is a complete scam because in the tropics the growing demand is causing forests to be burnt to make way for palm oil and similar crops.
“We calculate that the land will need to grow biodiesel crops for 70-300 years to compensate for the CO2 emitted in forest destruction.”
Clift will also condemn plans to produce British biodiesel from rapeseed, pointing to research showing the crop generates copious amounts of nitrous oxide – an even more powerful global warming gas than CO2 The attack comes as the government increases its support for biofuels. Next year it will introduce a requirement for 3% of all fuel sold on UK forecourts to come from a renewable source.
One day, hopefully soon, the whole world will crash down on the Climate Nazis, showing that their program for destroying the world's economies based on fraudulent science is a complete lie. And how nice it will be if that happens sooner rather than later. But it will happen.
Hillary Clinton has been caught in a huge corruption scandal, selling her name and vote for influence while she was First Lady and now a US Senator running for President.
Here is the story in The Times of London - will the US media, daring America to vote this crooked wife of a crook into the White House, bother to air this story? Will anyone notice?
Hillary hit by funds for favours row
THE frontrunner for the Democrats in the 2008 presidential election, Hillary Clinton, has been hit by a legal dispute in which one of her fundraisers is accused of trying to “ingratiate” himself with powerful friends at the expense of his company. The row has revived accusations of the influence peddling and favours for donors that marred Bill Clinton’s presidency in the 1990s.
For years the Clintons flew on Vinod Gupta’s corporate plane, introduced him to world leaders - including Tony Blair - and received donations for their political campaigns and charitable foundations.
They relaxed at his holiday home in Hawaii - next door to Pierce Brosnan, the former James Bond star - and jetted to Acapulco, the Mexican resort, while Gupta once spent the night as a favoured guest in the Lincoln bedroom at the White House.
“If we’re negotiating with a company, it helps if Bill Clinton says, ‘Oh Vin, he’s a good guy’,” said Gupta in a frank interview with The Sunday Times.
The lawsuit, by company shareholders, accuses Gupta of squandering millions of dollars on his high-profile friends, including $900,000 worth of travel on the Clintons.
Bill Clinton has a $3.3m consulting deal with the company, which the shareholders allege is a “waste of corporate assets”. He has already received $2.1m, with another $1.2m to come.
Interviewed at his office, not far from the White House, Gupta said Bill Clinton’s name and contacts were worth “over $40m” for the company. “We’ve met chief executives, bil-lionaires, government people - it helps us to make connections and do deals. It’s a very competitive world and who you know and which circles you belong to is a big thing.”
Gupta, 60, is the shrewd but genial Indian-born head of InfoUSA, a data marketing firm, and top “Hillraiser” for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Only last week he served as vice-chairman of a glittering fundraising event in Manhattan, which committed him to raise $50,000 in ticket sales for her campaign.
Gupta is letting Hillary Clinton use his private jet for which he is barely repaid.
Imagine if this were a Republican presidential candidate. We now have two Democrats - Hillary Clinton and Osama Barama Bananarama - caught up in corruption scandals. And the media could care less.
Sinful. And sickening.

Diane Sawyer of ABC News Interviews Nancy Pelosi on Her Rapidly Dwindling Popularity
Friday, June 08, 2007
For the Climate Nazis, there is nothing they will not blame for their phony issue of global warming. Cars? Global warming. Planes? Global warming. Homes? Global warming. Taxes? Global warming. And so on.
The new one in their arsenal of incredible bullshit is here: your FOOD causes global warming.
Yep. Stop eating or you could destroy the planet.
Organic Food Miles take toll on environment
Organic fruit and vegetables may be healthier for the dinner table, but not necessarily for the environment, a University of Alberta study shows.
The study, conducted by a team of student researchers in the Department of Rural Economy at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, showed that the greenhouse gas emitted when the produce is transported from great distances mitigates the environmental benefits of growing the food organically.
“If you’re buying ‘green’, you should consider the distance the food travels. If it’s travelling further, then some of the benefits of organic crops are cancelled out by extra environmental costs,” said researcher Vicki Burtt.
Now the Climate Nazis want people to feel bad about eating.
Can't someone kill these mindless fuckers?
Little Johnny Downwards, continually making a huge ass of himself with each word he utters, has reached the bottom of the pile and digs: he now says that, even though the War on Islamic Terrorism does not exist, he will fight it with...ready?...a "peace corps" to bring clean water to poor people.
Maybe we are in error, but did the 19 hijackers of 9/11 want clean water?
Peace Corps Part of Edwards Terror Plan
Senator Edwards is outlining a new national security strategy that includes the creation of a 10,000-person civilian peace corps to stem the tide of terrorism in weak and unstable countries.
Mr. Edwards's plan, which he presented in Manhattan yesterday, comes less than a week after he called President Bush's war on terror a "bumper sticker slogan" and said the current national security strategy has not made America safer.
Despite the criticism those comments are drawing, the Democratic presidential candidate did not back down from his position yesterday and said the president's strategy has undermined the country's long-term safety and led to a worn-out military.
Mr. Edwards, who has garnered strong support among anti-war Democrats, also took a swipe at Mayor Giuliani, the front-runner for the Republican nomination.
"If Mayor Giuliani believes that what President Bush has done is good and wants to run a campaign for the presidency saying, ‘I will give you four more years of what this president has given you,' then he is allowed to do that," the former North Carolina senator said. "He will never be elected president of the United States, but he is allowed to do that."
The comment elicited a testy response from the Giuliani campaign, which has focused largely on the former mayor's leadership after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and his aggressive strategy for dealing with Islamic fundamentalists.
"We are glad to see Rudy's criticism of the Democrats not understanding the terrorists' war on us is starting to register with them," Mr. Giuliani's communications director, Katie Levinson, said. " John Edwards's track record of predicting election outcomes speaks for itself."
And here is what Downwards proposed:
The plan Mr. Edwards presented yesterday — which he dubbed "A Strategy to Shut Down Terrorists and Stop Terrorism Before It Starts" — calls for a 10,000-person "Marshall Corps" to deal with issues ranging from worldwide poverty and economic development to clean drinking water and micro-lending. He said investing in those areas would shore up weak nations and help ensure that terrorism does not take root there. That, he said, would allow the country to stop potential terrorists before they even join the ranks.
There are "thousands committed to violence" today, he said, and America needs to use all of its tools to go after them. But he said millions more people are "sitting on the fence" about whether to join those ranks. "We have to offer them a hand to our side instead of a shove to the other side of that fence," he said.
All of its tools? War? Arrests? Sending them to Gitmo? Of course not, says Little Johnny.
Instead, we are going to send them peace corps volunteers.
That oughta scare Osama bin Laden. Yep. That's the ticket.
Former US Senator "Little Johnny" Edwards says that if elected President, he will win the War on Terror which he says does not exist by "grabbing bin Laden's balls and squeezing real hard."

Senator Hillary Clinton (Delusional-NY) has named Rep. Alcee Hastings as her national co-chair.
Clinton Names Florida Reps. Wasserman Schultz, Hastings National Campaign Co-Chairs
The Clinton Campaign today announced that Florida Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Congressman Alcee Hastings have been named national Campaign Co-Chairs.
"We need a leader with a clear vision and sound judgment, who can work with a Democratic Congress to renew the promise of America. Hillary is that leader," Rep. Wasserman Schultz said.
Rep. Hastings said, "When we elect the next President Clinton, this country will be a much better place for the African-American community, Floridians and all Americans."
Both Reps. Wasserman Schultz and Hastings serve in the Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives, and Hastings is the Vice Chair of Florida’s congressional delegation.
"I am delighted that Debbie and Alcee will take on leadership roles in my campaign," Clinton said. "With their help, we will bring our message of change throughout Florida and across the country."
How nice! Picking such a distinguished man for your national co-chair!
But...wait! Just who is Alcee Hastings? Well, he is a former judge, named to the federal bench by Jimmy Carter (figures), who was caught taking bribes and was impeached and removed from office.
Hmmm...haven't we heard that word before? Impeach? Impeachment?
That's right! Bill Clinton was impeached!
So, what's up here? Do the Clintons have some "impeachment" fetish - or do they all congregate around impeached felons?

You have to read this one to believe it...a Canadian member of Parliament (probably a leading member of the Doofus Party) has introduced a bill asking for legal protection for...ready?...Bigfoot!
We thought that this was a joke. Unfortunately, it isn't.
Endangered Species Protection Sought for Bigfoot
Recently, Mike Lake, a Canadian member of parliament from Edmonton, Alberta, agreed to introduce a petition that called for Bigfoot to be protected under the Canadian version of the endangered species act.
Lake presented to the House of Commons a petition that stated, “The debate over (Bigfoot’s) existence is moot in the circumstance of their tenuous hold on merely existing. Therefore, the petitioners request the House of Commons to establish immediate, comprehensive legislation to affect immediate protection of Bigfoot.”
The man behind the petition was a Bigfoot enthusiast named Todd Standing, who claims to have definitive proof of Bigfoot but is withholding it until protection for the alleged animals is in place. “When I get species protection for them nationwide, I will make my findings public and I will take this out of the realm of mythology. Bigfoot is real,” Standing said.
And they have a petition that 500 people signed.
Amazing? Incredible? Not really when you have people in the US who continue to believe that "9/11 was an inside job."
Now there is insanity.

Here is a lovely story about how simply built the rockets used by Palestinians against Israeli civilians are. How nice, eh? Palestinian technology – not for the betterment of mankind, but used to kill people.
Calling Palestinians “subhuman” appears to be a slur against subhumans.
How Kassam rockets work
If you've been watching the news, you know that Israel is under attack once again. This time, the weapon of choice comes from the skies. It is called the Kassam (or Qassam) rocket, and dozens of them have been landing in Israel.
In America we have a certain mental image that appears whenever we hear the word "rocket." We tend to think of something big, complex and expensive. We get that impression because we are used to seeing huge moon rockets or billion-dollar space shuttles flying precisely into orbit under the control of thousands of technicians.
The Palestinian Kassam rocket is just the opposite. It is small, simple and cheap. The idea is to create an easily manufactured, inexpensive terror weapon that one or two people can launch from almost anywhere.
How can Palestinians manufacture rockets in their basements? The key is to think small and to use everyday items wherever possible. Therefore, a Kassam rocket starts with a simple iron tube. In other words, you start with a piece of pipe. In a Kassam rocket, the pipe is usually about 6 feet long and 6 or 7 inches in diameter. At one end of the piece of pipe you weld on four simple fins made of sheet metal. The sheet metal can come from anywhere - an old car fender will do.
Here is an interesting idea - someone should try it out and see if it works.
Since these rockets are so easy to make, and since the world could give a rat's shit that the subhuman Palestinians continue to rain down these death rockets on innocent people, here is what Israelis should do: build their own rockets and launch them on Palestinian territory.
You heard us. Everytime a rocket comes out of the Palestinian areas (called "stys"), Israelis should fire five rockets against the Pallies. And load them up with rocks, and glass, and explosives, and nails, and other weaponry.
Now, imagine: the Palestinian scum launch one of their rockets. Instead of nothing happening, five rockets rain down on them and their twisted demented people. People will get hurt - heck, many might get killed. And the world's media will get their panties in a twist and yell, "Hey! What is Israel doing to those poor people?"
But, who cares what the world thinks, anyway?
Perhaps when the subhuman Palestinians see rockets continually rain down on them, they will either continue and get more of the same, or call a halt to their sick little game. But, either way, this is something that would get their attention.

When Republicans - rightly or wrongly - were hit with allegations of corruption, the media played each one of them to the hilt, making sure to show Downercrats like Nancy Pelosi and Her Gang of Liberal Numbskulls telling reporters "This is part of the Republican Culture of Corruption." And it worked, as Americans voted this group of liberal thieves into power in 2006.
Now, the shoe is on the other foot: Rep. William Jefferson, Crook du Jour from Louisiana, was indicted by a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., on 16 counts of bribery, racketeering, wire fraud, obstruction of justice, and one count of being a doofus.
And the story was reported...where? And, by the way, where is any reporter to ask the Republican minority members what their opinion of this is? Isn't this part of the Downercrats' "Culture of Corruption"?
Not if the media ignores it as usual, will it be.
Jury Indicts Jefferson in Bribery Probe
Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., was indicted Monday on federal charges of racketeering, soliciting bribes and money-laundering in a long- running bribery investigation into business deals he tried to broker in Africa.
The indictment handed up in federal court in Alexandria., Va., Monday is 94 pages long and lists 16 alleged violations of federal law that could keep Jefferson in prison for up to 235 years. He is charged with racketeering, soliciting bribes, wire fraud, money-laundering, obstruction of justice, conspiracy and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
Jefferson is accused of soliciting bribes for himself and his family, and also for bribing a Nigerian official.
Almost two years ago, in August 2005, investigators raided Jefferson's home in Louisiana and found $90,000 in cash stuffed into a box in his freezer.
Jefferson, 63, whose Louisiana district includes New Orleans, has said little about the case publicly but has maintained his innocence. He was re-elected last year despite the looming investigation.
Jefferson, in Louisiana on Monday, could not immediately be reached for comment.
Two of Jefferson's associates have already struck plea bargains with prosecutors and have been sentenced.
Brett Pfeffer, a former congressional aide, admitted soliciting bribes on Jefferson's behalf and was sentenced to eight years in prison.
Another Jefferson associate, Louisville, Ky., telecommunications executive Vernon Jackson, pleaded guilty to paying between $400,000 and $1 million in bribes to Jefferson in exchange for his assistance securing business deals in Nigeria and other African nations. Jackson was sentenced to more than seven years in prison.
Both Pfeffer and Jackson agreed to cooperate in the case against Jefferson in exchanges for their pleas.
Read the whole story - is there any reaction from Pelosi, or John Boehner, the Republican Leader in the House? Of course not. Because the media could care less that Boehner has to say, and they don't want to make Pelosi look any stupider than she already is.
Oops! Someone had the nerve to go to Pelosi and get a comment:
U.S. indicts Rep. Jefferson; Corruption probe snags Louisiana lawmaker
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called the charges "extremely serious" and would constitute "an egregious and unacceptable abuse of public trust and power" if proven true.
Now, here is The New York Times take on this:
Democratic Lawmaker Indicted
Notice - no mention of Pelosi. Figures.

The BBC, one of the three pillars of journalistic evil in the world - along with CNN and al Jazeera - is now on a full-out "Let's get Israel" mission. First, some of the morons at the Beeb intimated - without any evidence whatsoever - that Israel, and not their subhuman friends the Palestinians, are behind the kidnapping of pro-Palestinian scumbag Alan Johnston. To top that one off, now the BBC is reporting that Israel may have been behind the hijacking of the aircraft rescued by Israeli commandoes in the so-called "Raid on Entebbe" in 1976.
Their proof? Some Arab schmuck in Paris told a friend who told a British diplomat that Israel was behind it. And this is "evidence" to the BBC.
Israel hijack role 'was queried'
It has been seen as a daring raid by crack Israeli troops to rescue dozens of their countrymen held at the mercy of hijackers.
But newly released documents contain a claim that the 1976 rescue of hostages, kidnapped on an Air France flight and held in Entebbe in Uganda, was not all it seemed.
A UK government file on the crisis, released from the National Archives, contains a claim that Israel itself was behind the hijacking.
An unnamed contact told a British diplomat in Paris that the Israeli Secret Service, the Shin Bet, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) collaborated to seize the plane.
The flight was seized shortly after it took off from Athens and was flown to Entebbe, where 98 people were held hostage, many of them Israeli citizens.
Got that? An "unnamed source" told of this fable.
Now, remember this paragraph:
Two Israeli civilian hostages died in the shooting, and a third died later in a Nairobi hospital. One officer commanding the raiders was killed by shooting from the airport tower.
The "third" who died later was Dora Bloch, who was taken during the siege to a hospital because she was ill. It was later discovered that she was strangled on Idi Amin's personal order. So, did she "die" - or was she murdered?
Since the BBC works so well on very little evidence, we have our own story:
Alan Johnston, Kidnapped BBC Correspondent, Was Working for Terrorist Groups in Palestinian Territory
An unnamed source has told the CCB that Alan Johnston, the kidnapped journalist held by Palestinian subhumans, was working for some extremist Palestinian groups and was in fact participating in terror attacks against Israel. The source, an unnamed source who told his story to CCB correspondent Issiht Tishlub, said that Johnston had even fired off Qassem rockets which had struck Israeli cities and towns and could have caused damage and potential injuries.
Well, there you have it. Since Johnston apparently worked for terrorists, it is altogether good that he immediately have his head removed from his fucking body.
And it is because of the information from an unnamed source.
When Hillary Clinton opens her mouth, especially in a different accent, she is hailed as a strong woman. Bananarama is called "brave" for his bullshit stands on nothing. Little Johnny Downwards is not laughed at for calling attention to poverty as he lives in a multi-million dollar home.
But when Fred Thompson, former US Senator, thinks of running for President, what do the liberals fixate on? His acting career, that's what. His stands on the issues? Who cares!
In Casting for President, Will Actor Rate a Callback?
The 2008 Republican nomination is turning into a Dick Wolf production — politics ripped from TV Guide. The casting is once again upside down. Rudy Giuliani for front-runner? Maybe. But the Fred Thompson of “Law & Order” fame is better suited as chief of staff.
Mr. Thompson, a former senator from Tennessee, had a solidly conservative voting record in Washington, but most Americans know him best as the fictional Manhattan district attorney Arthur Branch. Arthur is not so much an inspiring leader as he is a crafty consigliere: a bluntly pragmatic D.A. who has colorfully phrased views and a wily ability to bend them — and those of his staff — to meet the political needs of his office.
Arthur is a conservative, wears a flag pin in his lapel and is particularly deft at pressing Assistant D.A. Jack McCoy to ask for the death penalty. “It’s not just you, Jack,” he says in his bourbon-and-branch-water drawl. “It’s the law.” (In that particular TNT rerun, he held up a copy of a book titled “Penal Code,” to make his point.)
Now that he is creating a committee to raise money from contributors unhappy with the existing field of candidates, Mr. Thompson can apply his powers of persuasion in a different way. It’s not just you, Rudy, it’s the “Law & Order.”
There's the story, folks: Fred Thompson should be examined based on a character he played on "Law and Order."
And liberals always wonder why no one takes them seriously. Here is another example why.

The Guardian, the leftwing rag in London, England, has done what few other newspapers in the entire world have seen fit to do: they expose the absolute fraud that is "carbon trading," allegedly used by the Left to make the sucking sound of economies going down because of the lies of global warming make less of a horrible scream.
The Climate Nazis exposed by one of their own. We like the sound of that.
Truth about Kyoto: huge profits, little carbon saved
In autumn 2005, three journalists working for the environmental group the Centre for Science and Environment decided to investigate some of the Indian projects which were trying to break into the lucrative new business of carbon trading.
They started looking at four schemes in Andhra Pradesh which were trying to convert biomass - dead plants, animal dung - into fuel. They studied the formal reports which the schemes had commissioned from a UK company, Ernst and Young, to satisfy the demanding requirements of the UN's Clean Development Mechanism. And they noticed a very odd thing.
Each of the four Ernst and Young reports had had to consult people near the proposed schemes to ensure that there was no risk to the local economy or environment. One report quoted three different community leaders, each expressing enthusiastic approval for the project and concluded: "Poor farmers are getting reasonable monitory gains for harvesting the available biomass and supplying it to project activity."
What was odd that with two of the other schemes, each many miles from the other, Ernst and Young quoted three sources who had the same job descriptions, the same opinions, summarised in precisely the same words which even included the same spelling mistakes (Secretry, monitory). In the fourth case, the wording was slightly different, but the opinions were the same, and it too concluded that "poor farmers are getting reasonable monitory gains etc."
The three journalists wrote up their conclusions in the group's magazine, Down to Earth, and made it clear that they were accusing Ernst and Young of simply cutting and pasting the same material into four supposedly separate and independent reports. Ernst and Young said there was nothing wrong: the local people in all four places happened to have said very similar things in response to a standard set of questions. But the environmental journalists were concerned enough to write to the executive board of the Clean Development Mechanism, offering further information. The CDM board never even acknowledged their letter.
The CDM is one of two global markets which have been set up in the wake of the Kyoto climate summit in 1997. Both finally started work in January 2005. Although both were launched with the claim that they would reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, evidence collected by the Guardian suggests that thus far, both markets have earned fortunes for speculators and for some of the companies which produce most greenhouse gases and yet, through a combination of teething troubles and multiple forms of malpractice and possibly fraud, they have delivered little or no benefit for the environment.
Fraud. Manipulation. Lies. Malpractice.
Yep - that's what liberals bring. Bullshit in a nice neat package.

The editor of the San Francisco Chronicle has resigned, effective today, saying that "deep cuts" have to happen to keep the paper afloat.
Remember that the SF Chronicle is chronically spouting a pro-socialist, anti-capitalist line. So, how come they are surprised that capitalism is doing them in?
SF Chronicle Managing Editor Resigns, Paper Bracing for Deep Cuts
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The San Francisco Chronicle's managing editor is stepping down as the Hearst Corp.-owned newspaper braces for a round of deep editorial job cuts.
Robert Rosenthal, who joined the Chronicle five years ago, said in a note to staff Tuesday that he is leaving the paper "without rancor or acrimony." He does not have another job lined up, but wants to "help another organization grow and another group of talented people find success."
Rosenthal, who leaves his post on Friday, said Wednesday that his departure was not prompted by any personal conflicts, but rather was intended to give Editor Phil Bronstein a freer hand in making the painful restructuring changes to the newsroom.
"I really want to be in a situation where I can build something rather than take it apart," Rosenthal said. "It might be a newspaper or it might be a new kind of news organization. I think it's time where the skills we have as journalists can be applied in a different way. The business model for newspapers is clearly broken."
Rosenthal's departure comes two weeks after the Chronicle announced a 25 percent reduction in newsroom staff, affecting all levels of editorial employees.
Management told the union it plans to eliminate 80 union and 20 management positions, out of a newsroom staff of about 400, unless the cuts could be made through buyouts and retirement incentives within 30 days.
Publisher Frank Vega said the measure was part of "continuing belt-tightening" to stem financial losses at the paper, which like other newspapers across the country is grappling with plunging print readership and the loss of advertising dollars to the Web.
Down, down, down they go. And a nicer set of scumbags couldn't be hit any harder.
Then again, there are a nicer set of scumbags. They work at The New York Times.
