Making Humus

Over at LGF, there is a thread about homosexual charges and counter-charges being hurled by Hamas and Fatah over which group has the most butt-jihadists. This was motivated by a story in the Jerusalem Post:

The Hamas-Fatah power struggle has descended into the gutter over the past few days, with both parties trading allegations about the involvement of their members in homosexual relations and adultery.

The alleged "sex scandals" are said to have occurred in the Gaza Strip, which fell into Hamas's hands in June.

Shortly after the Islamist movement wrested control of the Strip, Hamas officials began talking about "embarrassing" and "damning" documents and films that were seized inside Palestinian Authority security headquarters formerly controlled by Fatah.

According to the officials, the Fatah men had been spying on several senior PA officials, some of whom were caught on tape having homosexual intercourse.

One of the commentors, Alansfmd (#284) posted this link detailing some of Arafat's close encounters of the anal kind. He's been dead close to three years but stories of his perverted prowess with proselytes of the Prophet live on, thanks to the interweb tubes.

This story caught my attention:

Allegations regarding Arafat’s homosexuality have been fueled primarily by evidence provided by his former communist allies in Romania.

During the 1970’s and 1980’s, Arafat was a regular in Nicolae Ceausescu’s Bucharest, where Romanian intelligence and its KGB overlords were providing the PLO with the means to gain legitimacy in the West.

Little did Arafat know that Lt.-Gen. Ion Pacepa, the deputy chief of Romania's intelligence service, had rigged his guest suites with surveillance equipment.

In his book “Red Horizons”, Pacepa unveils Arafat as an insatiable homosexual by recalling a telephone conversation with Constantin Munteaunu, a general assigned to the PLO.

"I just called the microphone monitoring center to ask about the 'Fedayee,'" Arafat's code name, explained Munteaunu. "After the meeting with the Comrade, he went directly to the guest house and had dinner. At this very moment, the 'Fedayee' is in his bedroom making love to his bodyguard. The one I knew was his latest lover. He's playing tiger again. The officer monitoring his microphones connected me live with the bedroom, and the squawling almost broke my eardrums. Arafat was roaring like a tiger, and his lover yelping like a hyena."

There's gotta be surveillance photos and tapes with this stuff on it. Intel officers wouldn't let this stuff go; it's priceless. I wonder if some Romanian intelligence officers retired in an extremely comfortable lifestyle after making arrangements that these files would never see the light of day?

Huh? Parallel Universes

How about "Way Over My Head" for four hundred dollars, Alex.

Physicists are postulating that parallel universes are created whenever a sub atomic particle is observed.

Parallel universes really do exist, according to a mathematical discovery by Oxford scientists described by one expert as "one of the most important developments in the history of science".

The parallel universe theory, first proposed in 1950 by the US physicist Hugh Everett, helps explain mysteries of quantum mechanics that have baffled scientists for decades, it is claimed.

In Everett's "many worlds" universe, every time a new physical possibility is explored, the universe splits. Given a number of possible alternative outcomes, each one is played out - in its own universe.

A motorist who has a near miss, for instance, might feel relieved at his lucky escape. But in a parallel universe, another version of the same driver will have been killed. Yet another universe will see the motorist recover after treatment in hospital. The number of alternative scenarios is endless.

This could get confusing. I have enough trouble keeping track of relatives now as it is. What if we invite one cousin over for dinner; in one universe he shows up with his gay boyfriend, in another one he brings his pet goat and in another the Morman Tabernacle Choir is in tow? A whole new crew of cousins!

It is a bizarre idea which has been dismissed as fanciful by many experts. But the new research from Oxford shows that it offers a mathematical answer to quantum conundrums that cannot be dismissed lightly - and suggests that Dr Everett, who was a Phd student at Princeton University when he came up with the theory, was on the right track.

Commenting in New Scientist magazine, Dr Andy Albrecht, a physicist at the University of California at Davis, said: "This work will go down as one of the most important developments in the history of science."

According to quantum mechanics, nothing at the subatomic scale can really be said to exist until it is observed. Until then, particles occupy nebulous "superposition" states, in which they can have simultaneous "up" and "down" spins, or appear to be in different places at the same time.

Observation appears to "nail down" a particular state of reality, in the same way as a spinning coin can only be said to be in a "heads" or "tails" state once it is caught.

The only way I can make heads or tails out of this is that God is an Infinite God. He can keep track of all this without blinking an eye.

According to quantum mechanics, unobserved particles are described by "wave functions" representing a set of multiple "probable" states. When an observer makes a measurement, the particle then settles down into one of these multiple options.

The Oxford team, led by Dr David Deutsch, showed mathematically that the bush-like branching structure created by the universe splitting into parallel versions of itself can explain the probabilistic nature of quantum outcomes.

Thank God someone has been working on this, it's been keeping me up at night.

More About That Hole

From the Times On Line:

Israeli commandos seized nuclear material of North Korean origin during a daring raid on a secret military site in Syria before Israel bombed it this month, according to informed sources in Washington and Jerusalem.

The attack was launched with American approval on September 6 after Washington was shown evidence the material was nuclear related, the well-placed sources say.

They confirmed that samples taken from Syria for testing had been identified as North Korean. This raised fears that Syria might have joined North Korea and Iran in seeking to acquire nuclear weapons.

More and more it seems that the nice new hole in eastern Syria was part of a plan to acquire nuclear material. I guess we can now call it a "glowhole." The Izzies were busy with this for months.

Israeli special forces had been gathering intelligence for several months in Syria, according to Israeli sources. They located the nuclear material at a compound near Dayr az-Zwar in the north.

Evidence that North Korean personnel were at the site is said to have been shared with President George W Bush over the summer. A senior American source said the administration sought proof of nuclear-related activities before giving the attack its blessing.

It's nice to know that Bush gave his "Dominus Vobiscum" to the Izzies. I wonder if they would have turned the area into a reading lamp anyway without the presidential nod. I think so.

Diplomats in North Korea and China believe a number of North Koreans were killed in the strike, based on reports reaching Asian governments about conversations between Chinese and North Korean officials.

Syrian officials flew to Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, last week, reinforcing the view that the two nations were coordinating their response.

Perhaps they are buying matching taffeta shrouds for the lead lined coffins? Hopefully this will dampen any more enthuiasm on behalf of shitheel dictators trying to acquire nuclear weapons.

The big show down, of course, is with Iran. And there is talk of planning for such an event. The effort is part of ongoing development of war strategy, code named Project Checkmate.

Again from the Times:

THE United States Air Force has set up a highly confidential strategic planning group tasked with “fighting the next war” as tensions rise with Iran.

Project Checkmate, a successor to the group that planned the 1991 Gulf War’s air campaign, was quietly reestablished at the Pentagon in June.

It reports directly to General Michael Moseley, the US Air Force chief, and consists of 20-30 top air force officers and defence and cyberspace experts with ready access to the White House, the CIA and other intelligence agencies.

[...]It is led by Brigadier-General Lawrence “Stutz” Stutzriem, who is considered one of the brightest air force generals. He is assisted by Dr Lani Kass, a former Israeli military officer and expert on cyberwarfare.

Perhaps they'll call it the "Gunfight at Esfahan Corrall" or better yet the Esfahan Glowhole...

Bury That Wreathe Where The Sun Don't Shine

The President of Iran wants to visit the WTC.

I say let him.

Pick him up by his stinking heels and drop him into the hole from 1,368 feet. That's the height of Tower I. Let him experience the same feelings as those who jumped trying to escape the flames.

Just Say It

My daughter had to memorize this for her Eye-talian class.

Giuro fedelta alla bandiera degli Stati d' America e alla repubblica che essa rappresenta, una nazione sotto Dio, indivisibile, con liberta e giustizia per tutti.

It's the Pledge of Alligence.

Iranians Don't Have Chili

Tonight is a little cool, temps down in the fifties. So my bride rustled up some of her special homemade chili Eye-talian style (served over small pasta) with hot muffins made from Uncle Buck's Corn Bread mix. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

I pity the Iranians... This delicious stuff just doesn't set well with pita bread.

About That Hole

It appears that Israel may have used its incursion into Syria to rmove a potential nuclear threat. From the Times On Line:

Israelis ‘blew apart Syrian nuclear cache’
Secret raid on Korean shipment crossed the Syrian coast-line.

It was just after midnight when the 69th Squadron of Israeli F15Is crossed the Syrian coast-line. On the ground, Syria’s formidable air defences went dead. An audacious raid on a Syrian target 50 miles from the Iraqi border was under way.

At a rendezvous point on the ground, a Shaldag air force commando team was waiting to direct their laser beams at the target for the approaching jets. The team had arrived a day earlier, taking up position near a large underground depot. Soon the bunkers were in flames. Ten days after the jets reached home, their mission was the focus of intense speculation this weekend amid claims that Israel believed it had destroyed a cache of nuclear materials from North Korea.

Holy Nuclear Cache Batman! Mebbe the Syrians stumbled across a natural radioactive formation that "evolved" into an arms bunker?

It took over a week but we're now starting to get more information about the nature of Israeli's attack. The Israelis are still pretty much mum on this but other sources are shaking loose.

The Israeli government was not saying. “The security sources and IDF [Israeli Defence Forces] soldiers are demonstrating unusual courage,” said Ehud Olmert, the prime minister. “We naturally cannot always show the public our cards.”

Just show us the smoke and debris. Oh, and the hole, we gotta see the hole.

The Syrians were also keeping mum. “I cannot reveal the details,” said Farouk al-Sharaa, the vice-president. “All I can say is the military and political echelon is looking into a series of responses as we speak. Results are forthcoming.” The official story that the target comprised weapons destined for Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Lebanese Shi’ite group, appeared to be crumbling in the face of widespread scepticism.

The official story isn't the only thing that crumbled in Syria; let's not forget about the hole. But don't fret about the Syrians. They will take drastic action as soon as they change trou and break out the Combat Depends.

Andrew Semmel, a senior US State Department official, said Syria might have obtained nuclear equipment from “secret suppliers”, and added that there were a “number of foreign technicians” in the country.

I'll take "Secret North Korean Suppliers" for $200, Alex. You have to wonder about the Syrians. They never seem to learn. Did they really think the Isrealis wouldn't find out what they were doing?

According to Israeli sources, preparations for the attack had been going on since late spring, when Meir Dagan, the head of Mossad, presented Olmert with evidence that Syria was seeking to buy a nuclear device from North Korea.

The Israeli spy chief apparently feared such a device could eventually be installed on North-Korean-made Scud-C missiles.

“This was supposed to be a devastating Syrian surprise for Israel,” said an Israeli source. “We’ve known for a long time that Syria has deadly chemical warheads on its Scuds, but Israel can’t live with a nuclear warhead.”

Gauging by the smouldering debris and body parts, it appears that Israel isn't going to allow Syria to live with one either.

An expert on the Middle East, who has spoken to Israeli participants in the raid, told yesterday’s Washington Post that the timing of the raid on September 6 appeared to be linked to the arrival three days earlier of a ship carrying North Korean material labelled as cement but suspected of concealing nuclear equipment.

Oh drat! North Korea's kill-the-jooooos-glow-in-the-dark-cement discount coupon expired last week. Gotta check the Sunday paper for more...

The target was identified as a northern Syrian facility that purported to be an agricultural research centre on the Euphrates river. Israel had been monitoring it for some time, concerned that it was being used to extract uranium from phosphates.

This must be the Syrian NukraGrow facility where they cultivated the hundred pound garbanzo beans. It took a falafel the size of the Meadowlands to get rid of them.

According to an Israeli air force source, the Israeli satellite Ofek 7, launched in June, was diverted from Iran to Syria. It sent out high-quality images of a northeastern area every 90 minutes, making it easy for air force specialists to spot the facility.

I wonder if the anti-aircraft positions around the falafel factory gave them away?

Slip Sliding Away

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away

England seems to be in a death spiral as it augers into the fever swamps of rampant liberalism. This is reflected in the utter nonsense issuing from the mouths of its public officials. From This Is London:

A mother who had her bag snatched was told by police it was not a crime - because she chased after the thief and won her property back. Sam McAlister was queueing in a coffee shop with her ten-month-old son when a woman grabbed the bag from the back of the pushchair as an accomplice distracted her.

This could be a misdemeanor as no physical force was directed at the victim. Under NY law the value of the purse's content (just two credit cards for example) could push it up to a felony. In either event, it is a crime.

Miss McAlister, 34, left her child with staff at the Starbucks cafe, whom she knew well, and set off in pursuit of the woman.

She confronted the thief in a nearby shop and was eventually reunited with her bag after a struggle.

Now it's a felony. The suspect used force to keep the purse and a struggle ensued. Once physical force is used to effect a theft or in the continuance of a theft , it's robbery (forcible taking of property). Or is it?

Ms. McAlister continues with her story.

But when she went to a police station to report the crime, she was told by an officer behind the desk that it was not a crime because she had got the bag back.

It was only when the former criminal barrister used her knowledge of the law that the case was passed on to a senior officer who decided to investigate.

There might be a reason why that officer is driving a chair instead of being out on a beat. Every officer has a certain amount of discretion in determining whether or not a crime has been committed, but this officer's actions bordered on official misconduct. There is a duty and an obligation to investigate all criminal complaints.

"I spotted her about four shops away with a backpack, and I thought 'I'm not having this'.

"She was about 6ft tall, but I thought it was worth a try, so I ran over to her. "I grabbed her backpack and shouted at her 'You've got my bag'. We were struggling and grappling, I was yelling 'Give me my bag' for dear life."

Eventually, the woman threw Miss McAlister's handbag at her as members of the public became involved.

Miss McAlister added: "I picked up the bag and as soon as I learnt someone had caught her I went back to my son."

A police community-support officer went to the scene at the Hammersmith shopping centre in West London on Thursday afternoon and took Miss McAlister to the local police station.

She said: "The female police officer behind the desk asked me the barest of details and she said that if I have got the bag back then obviously that's not a crime. I was dumbfounded."

So are we.

Who's The Betrayer?

Let me start off with a caveat:

Kieran Michael Lalor, is a former social studies teacher, a national security activist and Marine Corps Veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom aggressively exploring a challenge to John Hall in New York's 19th Congressional District.
The reason for this is that Mr. Lalor basically calls Congressman John Hall a lying, traitorous sack of crap. And I agree. But for many Democratic congress critters that should come as no surprise.

That being said, Mr. Lalor has some interesting points to make in this article posted in the American Thinker.

All politics are local. But sometimes, local politics are a national bellwether.

Much has been said about the mendacious, full-page advertisement ran in the New York Times this week referring to Gen. David Petraeus as "General Betray Us." Democrats in Congress orchestrated the piece, and most have refused to condemn this baseless attack on a man who has devoted more than three decades to defending the people of the United States.

Incredibly, even Petraeus' own Congressman refused to defend him. Let's be clear: General Petraeus was born and raised in Cornwall, New York and he is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Both Petraeus' hometown and alma mater fall within New York's 19th Congressional District in the Hudson River Valley. The district is represented by Rep. John Hall, an anti-war Democrat who has been in office for nine months.

It looks like the Democrats are using the typical nine month gestation period for a late term partial birth abortion. They wait until shortly before delivery and then try to suck the brains out of someone who is unable to vigorously defend himself (as per Section 888, Article 88 of the US UCMJ).

One might wonder what kind of Congressman could sit back and watch in silence as his own District's favorite son is slandered by the cretins at MoveOn. But let's not be surprised by John Hall anymore.

Wonder no more. John Hall is a radical retread, lost in nuance and seeped in treason; a charter member of John Kerry's Band of Backstabbers.

Some background: Before eking out a victory in the historically conservative 19th District in 2006, John Hall was a singer with the 1970's band Orleans.

Orleans, for those of you too young to remember :

[...] is an American pop-rock band best known for its hits "Dance With Me" (1975), "Still the One" (1976) and "Love Takes Time" (1979). Orleans was formed in Woodstock, New York in February 1972 by guitarist/songwriter John Hall, vocalist/guitarist Larry Hoppen and drummer/percussionist Wells Kelly. In November of that year the group expanded to include Larry’s younger brother Lance on bass. Drummer Jerry Marotta later joined, thus completing the quintet.

I sincerely apologize to all heterosexuals for this link - please contact BC: The Imperial Torturer for Brain Bleach. Anything that comes out of Woodstock must be boiled, sanitized and deoderized before release from quarantine.

By the early 1980's, he was establishing himself as a reliable leftwing shill, making an anti-Nuke propaganda film with a repugnant gaggle of leftists and celebrities, including Jane Fonda herself. In 1991, he was a county legislator and voted to defeat a resolution declaring support for our troops during Operation Desert Storm. But Hall didn't stop there. By the late 1990's, he'd sailed his yacht to Cuba (an act that contravenes U.S. law, which Hall still hasn't explained). He enjoyed his trip to the dictatorship so much he wrote a song about it.

With MoveOn's support, Hall was swept into office by a perfect storm of anti-Republican sentiment, a weak incumbent and a neglectful media that failed to report on his radical ideals. But he needed a different plan to defend the seat, so despite his anti-military resume, he's pinned his re-election hopes on winning support from military veterans - because he knows we make up nearly one-fifth of the district's electorate. The DNC has played along, and Democrats put Hall on the House Veterans Committee; Nancy Pelosi even got him on to the Board of Visitors of West Point.

Once again we round up the usual suspects. No need to push, we've got plenty of rope...

Today, Hall's public persona is a carefully crafted masquerade -- at every opportunity, Hall sings the "supporting veterans" song, yet he's done nothing useful for us. He saw national attention after promising to withhold the bonuses of the Veterans Administration brass until the backlog of veteran's claims was reduced. But after the spotlight waned, so did Hall's interest in helping vets, and he quickly broke this promise.

The real John Hall has devoted his term to a U.S. defeat in Iraq. [Emphasis mine: this is a link to the Kos fever swamp so be prepared for madness] The real John Hall chose not to defend General Petraeus for the simple reason that he feared retribution from and the far left, which he knew are the lifeblood of his re-election campaign.

In 2008 Hall needs the votes of veterans, money and volunteers from MoveOn and the media to look the other way so the people in the district don't find out about the whole charade.

There is more to this article so please drop in on the American Thinker.

Mr. Lalor needs the moral and financial support of LC's everywhere. Let's help him defeat John Hall. Let Hall's next song be titled "You're No Longer The One."

More Holes Are Needed

As Israeli jets flew their sorties over the ass end of Syria, the pilots spotted something:

Israel believes that North Korea has been supplying Syria and Iran with nuclear materials, a Washington defense official told the New York Times. “The Israelis think North Korea is selling to Iran and Syria what little they have left,” he said.

The official added that recent Israeli reconnaissance flights over Syria revealed possible nuclear installations that Israeli officials estimate might have been supplied with material from North Korea.

There's another hole in the ground we neglected to plant. That insane poofy-haired Pyongyangbanger can't keep his a-tomic toys anymore so he's turned into a Johnny Alpha Particle Seed spreading his poisonous nuclear garbage throughout Asia - Satan's Garage Sale for Islamo-fascist Moon god worshippers.

Meanwhile on Wednesday the Nazareth-based Israeli Arab newspaper The Assennara cited anonymous Israeli sources as saying that Israeli jets "bombed a Syrian-Iranian missile base in northern Syria that was financed by Iran... It appears that the base was completely destroyed."

There's a lot of holes that need to be planted in Iran too. Great, big, huge, gaping holes.

According to the Times, American officials confirmed Tuesday that Israeli jets launched an airstrike inside Syria. Sources said that Israel struck at least one target in northeastern Syria, but could not provide more details.

The most likely target was, according to some administration officials, weapon caches sent by Iran to Hizbullah through Syria. North Korea commented on the incident Tuesday, calling it a "dangerous provocation", Chinese News Agency Xinhua reported on Tuesday.

Over the past forty years, Syria has had to be periodically reminded that it is dangerous to provoke Israel. Now a new provocation is planned, a nuclear threat in addition to Iran.

I smell Chinese manipulation behind all this. South Korea won't lift its leg to take a leak in the bushes without China signing off on the damage to the shrubs. Keeping the Middle East in a state of uneasy flux distracts the US and diverts our attention from other areas. I'm wondering what those areas are. The Chinese are not our friends.

Just A Big Hole In The Ground

I'm glad to see the Israelis are still minding the store. From the Jerusalem Post:

The Israel Air Force jets that allegedly infiltrated Syrian airspace early last Thursday apparently bombed an Iranian arms shipment that was being transferred to Hizbullah, CNN reported Tuesday.

[...] CNN said the operation involved ground forces and that the aerial strike left "a great hole in the desert." Although it did not name a specific source, the network cited "US government officials." The jets have been identified by the Turkish authorities as IAF F15Is, Israel's long-range bomber, after fuel tanks were found in Turkish territory.

The CNN report said the IAF's targets were likely weaponry delivered to Syria that was possibly intended for use by Hizbullah.

A big hole in the ground is what should be planted in a lot of mid eastern real estate. The Irani Parliment and military installations come to mind.

CNN's chief international correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, delivered the report and quoted sources saying that Israel was "very happy" with the results of the operation.

Which probably made Ms.Amanpour very unhappy indeed.

Damascus complained to the United Nations about an "aggression and violation of sovereignty," saying Israeli warplanes dropped "military munitions" in Syria, the country's ambassador to the UN said Tuesday.

Is this the same United Nations that ignored Sadams violations for twelve years? Let's see how long before the cries of condemnation erupt from Turtle Bay. Syria has been a conduit for Irani weapons for decades. These weapons then violate Israeli air space, chest space, head space, kidney space, torso space, kindergarten space ....

A US military official described the Israeli incursion as an air strike "deep into Syria" that succeeded in hitting a target. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because it was an intelligence issue, said he did not know what that target was.

S'okay. Just another hole in the ground now anyway. Hopefully surrounded by body parts.

Syria has called the incursion a "hostile act," but has been largely silent on the details of what happened. Israeli officials have refused to comment.

Now why would that be? Hard to spin it that the evil Jooooos again bombed a baby formula/organic cookie/happy happy joy joy granola factory out in the middle of Shiitehole Basin, Syria.

During the Second Lebanon War, the IDF discovered a wide range of antitank missiles and short-range rockets being used by Hizbullah that had originated in Syria. Several Iranian-made missiles were also in Hizbullah hands before the war, but these were mostly destroyed by the IDF before being fired at Israel.

That would have been enough for me to turn all of Syria into a giant hole.

Over the upcoming holidays, the IDF will continue to maintain a high level of alert along the Syrian border amid fears that Damascus will respond to the alleged flyover. Defense officials said earlier this week that tensions between the countries had begun to subside, but that there was a need to maintain a high alert "just in case."

Hopefully that high level of alert includes a high level of high explosives "just in case."

Casa D'Ice

North Versailles, PA: there is a restaurant in this suburb of Pittsburgh called the Casa D'Ice. It has a bill board that the owner, Bill Balsamico, uses to show some very politically uncorrect views.

The man is a certified genius.

And a fine military tactician.

As well as a foreign policy wonk.
And a fine theologian.

The border problem is solved.

Rotten Bastards

As we see the world depart further and further from standards of deceny, we can expect to see more of this.

JERUSALEM - In a case that would seem unthinkable in the Jewish state, police said Sunday they have cracked a cell of young Israeli neo-Nazis accused in a string of attacks on foreign workers, religious Jews, drug addicts and gays.

Eight immigrants from the former Soviet Union have been arrested in recent days
in connection with at least 15 attacks, and a ninth fled the country, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, in the first such known cell to be discovered in

Makes you want to take a deep breath, firm up the sight picture, let it out nice and slow while squeeeeezing the trigger, don't it?

All the suspects are in their late teens or early 20s and have Israeli citizenship, Rosenfeld said.

[...]The gang documented its activities on film and in photographs. Israeli TV stations showed grainy footage of people lying helpless on floors while several people kicked them, and of a man getting hit from behind on the head with an empty bottle.

Police found knives, spiked balls, explosives and other weapons in the suspects' possession, Rosenfeld said. One photo that was seized showed one suspect holding an M16 rifle in one hand and in the other, a sign reading "Heil Hitler," he added.

What in the bloody blazes is the deal with Hitler? The madman ruined one continent and half of another, slaughtered millions upon millions of noncombatants and brain washed an entire generation that we're still dealing with. The only thing fascinating about this man's life was the collection of blood thirsty psychopaths revolving around him like shit satellites orbiting around an insane moon and how the Wehrmacht general staff managed not to kill his worthless ass for six years.

Police discovered the skinhead ring after investigating the desecration of two synagogues that were sprayed with swastikas in the central Israeli city of Petah Tikva more than a year ago, Rosenfeld said.

Police computer experts have determined they maintained contacts with neo-Nazi groups abroad, and materials seized include a German-language video about neo-Nazis in the U.S.

The group planned its attacks, and its targets were foreign workers from Asia, drug addicts, homosexuals, punks and Jews who wore skullcaps. In one case they discussed planning a murder, Rosenfeld said, without providing details.

That these neo-nazis are Russian immigrants should come as no surprise; they could have spawned from within any nation on the planet. Law enforcement officials have to keep an eye on the pulse of anti-semitism - Satan is alive and well and his lies are doing pretty well also.
H/T to Radical Redneck on the Bark.

Beyond Help?

Last week Syracuse lost it's opener to the Washington Huskies, 42 - 12.

Yesterday SU lost it's second game of the season; a drubbing by Iowa, 35 - 0. From the Post Standard:

In the first half:
The offense did not gain a single first down.

The offense had minus-1 yard of total offense on 21 plays.

Syracuse receivers dropped four passes.

Syracuse linemen had three false start penalties.

Quarterback Andrew Robinson was sacked three times and threw an interception.

Three of four Syracuse players who attempted runs had negative yards.

Even when safety Joe Fields of Syracuse intercepted an Iowa pass and returned it 35 yards to the Iowa 26, the Orange flopped. Pat Shadle's 39-yard field goal attempt was blocked.

During this same period Iowa scored four times.

This is Coach Robinson's third season and it ain't pretty. Nothing seems to be working for the Orangemen. Their record under Coach Robinson thus far? Five and twenty.

How do you fix a mess like this?

Faithful Rotti

A 6 year old Rottweiller named Sebastian died in a smokey trailer fire last night in Oswego County while trying to save the life of a young child. The dog was found on the floor next to the crib of 3 year old Isiah Luhr. The mother, Jennifer Morris, was alerted by the barking of Sebastian and her other dog (a beagle) and got all three of her children safely out of the trailer. Sebastian refused to leave the crib area.

From the Syracuse Post Standard:

"I went out last," said Morris, 35. "I don't think (Sebastian) realized I had the baby. He turned around and went back to Isiah's room.

He wouldn't come out. After firefighters found Sebastian, "A firefighter told me, 'That dog must have really loved your son because he died at his bedside,'" Morris said.

The family escaped the fast moving fire by climbing out a window.

Conservative conversations have often centered around the Singularity of Stupid; a person or persons so dense, so profoundly devoid of cognitive ability that it is not possible that an Intellectual Event (rational thought) can escape the crushing gravity of obtuseness.

Though invisible, the Singularity of Stupid manifests itself by appearing as a “Dumb Asshole.” Both are dependent on a Catastrophic Intellectual Collapse (CIC) which creates the Singularity of Stupid.

Whenever such persons are found, it is no surprise that it is usually the police who stumble across them. Such an event has been documented in this Fox News item:

PATRICK, Nev. — An Oregon rugby player remains in jail Tuesday after being arrested on charges he left his 2-year-old daughter in a vehicle in the parking lot of a Nevada brothel on a 95-degree day.

Lucien Hoffman, of Bend, Ore., is being held in the Storey County Detention Center in lieu of $40,000 bail on charges of child neglect.

Houston, we've found a hole.

Police arrested Hoffman early Sunday night at the World Famous Mustang Ranch brothel in Sparks, Nev., after a security guard found the child crying inside the car, according to Storey County Sheriff's Det./Sgt. Kenneth Quirk.

Hoffman, a wing for Bend Rugby who goes by the nicknames Luke and "Torpedo," had been attending a pool party and barbecue at the brothel, a co-sponsor of a Labor Day weekend rugby tournament in Reno organized by the Reno Zephyrs Rugby Club.

"It was 95 degrees out at that time of day, and you have to figure another 30 degrees on top of that inside a vehicle even with the windows down," Quirk said.

This Dumb Asshole left his two year old daughter all alone for hours in a four door oven on wheels. Fortunately the whorehouse security guard heard the child crying and investigated. He contacted the sheriff's office and took the child inside the brothel for shelter. No question, this idiot needs a Cosmic Catharsis in the form of a blue enema to wake him up.
After Hoffman's arrest, the toddler was treated for dehydration and released to the Nevada Division of Child and Family Services. She was returned to her mother in Bend, Ore.
I don't know any rugby players; I hope it has nothing to do with the sport, but listen to what the president of the rugby club, Matt Burke, has to say about charbroiling toddlers:
Burke called Hoffman a good father who made a bad decision.
Yeah, he forgot to marinate the kid.

"We know Luke to be a good father," he said. "He's not a neglectful person or an irresponsible parent. It's unfortunate that he made the decision that he did to put here in the car, but I'm sure the decision wasn't arrived at in a neglectful manner or that he was intentionally being neglectful."

Oh really? From
ne·glect /nɪˈglɛkt/
1. to pay no attention or too little attention to;
2. to be remiss in the care or treatment of;
3. to omit, through indifference or carelessness;
4. to fail to carry out or perform (orders, duties, etc.);
5. to fail to take or use;
6. an act or instance of neglecting; disregard; negligence;
7. the fact or state of being neglected.

So what part of Hoffman's actions were not neglectful? Seems like Burke is rapidy approaching his own Singularity.

No Wide Stance Toe Tapping Allowed

ITEM #1 - Yes, I think Senator Craig is a fag - could be wrong, but I don't think so. He is in ass saving mode right now with his wife; a messy divorce could ruin him for the rest of his life.
ITEM #2 - I worked vice for a short time. I didn't like it. I also arrested fags for prostitution but not for disorderly conduct under these circumstances.
ITEM #3 - I couldn't figure out just what the fuss was all about so I looked up the police report filed by the arresting officer, Sgt. Kasnia. Senator Craig was arrested for Disorderly Conduct and Interference With Privacy. He was not arrested for soliciting sex for money (prostitution). Here are the operative Minnesota law sections cited in the report:


Subdivision 1. Crime.

Whoever does any of the following in a public or private place, including on a school bus, knowing, or having reasonable grounds to know that it will, or will tend to, alarm, anger or disturb others or provoke an assault or breach of the peace, is guilty of disorderly conduct, which is a misdemeanor:

(1) Engages in brawling or fighting; or

(2) Disturbs an assembly or meeting, not unlawful in its character; or

(3) Engages in offensive, obscene, abusive, boisterous, or noisy conduct or in offensive, obscene, or abusive language tending reasonably to arouse alarm, anger, or resentment in others.

A person does not violate this section if the person's disorderly conduct was caused by an epileptic seizure. Subd. 2.[Repealed, 1969 c 226 s 1]

It appears that sub 3 is the operative section.


Subdivision 1. Surreptitious intrusion; observation device.

(a) A person is guilty of a gross misdemeanor who:(1) enters upon another's property;(2) surreptitiously gazes, stares, or peeps in the window or any other aperture of a house or place of dwelling of another; and(3) does so with intent to intrude upon or interfere with the privacy of a member of the household.

(b) A person is guilty of a gross misdemeanor who:(1) enters upon another's property;(2) surreptitiously installs or uses any device for observing, photographing, recording, amplifying, or broadcasting sounds or events through the window or any other aperture of a house or place of dwelling of another; and(3) does so with intent to intrude upon or interfere with the privacy of a member of the household.

(c) A person is guilty of a gross misdemeanor who:(1) surreptitiously gazes, stares, or peeps in the window or other aperture of a sleeping room in a hotel, as defined in section 327.70, subdivision 3, a tanning booth, or other place where a reasonable person would have an expectation of privacy and has exposed or is likely to expose their intimate parts, as defined in section 609.341, subdivision 5, or the clothing covering the immediate area of the intimate parts; and (2) does so with intent to intrude upon or interfere with the privacy of the occupant.

(d) A person is guilty of a gross misdemeanor who:(1) surreptitiously installs or uses any device for observing, photographing, recording, amplifying, or broadcasting sounds or events through the window or other aperture of a sleeping room in a hotel, as defined in section 327.70, subdivision 3, a tanning booth, or other place where a reasonable person would have an expectation of privacy and has exposed or is likely to expose their intimate parts, as defined in section 609.341, subdivision 5, or the clothing covering the immediate area of the intimate parts; and(2) does so with intent to intrude upon or interfere with the privacy of the occupant.

(e) A person is guilty of a felony and may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than two years or to payment of a fine of not more than $5,000, or both, if the person:(1) violates this subdivision after a previous conviction under this subdivision or section 609.749; or (2) violates this subdivision against a minor under the age of 18, knowing or having reason to know that the minor is present.(f) Paragraphs (b) and (d) do not apply to law enforcement officers or corrections investigators, or to those acting under their direction, while engaged in the performance of their lawful duties.

Paragraphs (c) and (d) do not apply to conduct in: (1) a medical facility; or (2) a commercial establishment if the owner of the establishment has posted conspicuous signs warning that the premises are under surveillance by the owner or the owner's employees. Subd. 2.[Repealed, 1993 c 326 art 2 s 34] Subd. 3.[Repealed, 1993 c 326 art 2 s 34]

Apparently, it appears to be a good bust. By "good" I mean that the two violations charged by Sgt. Karsnia are sections of MN law that seem to be supported by the officer's deposition and the Senator's "Mirandized" statement. The entire case is not available for scrutiny (yet) so there could be some surprises.

The Disorderly Conduct charge would appear to be the creepy finger waving and shoe rubbing. In NY, DisCon (as we call it) is a violation, not a crime but a petit offense. In MN it is a misdemeanor which is a crime. For the Interference With Privacy charge, section 607.746(c) seems to be the subsection that the Senator violated when he stood in front of the stall and gazed through the crack between the door and the stall jamb. Apparently he did this several times over a period of two minutes or so.

I think there are a few problems with 607.746(c). How far was Karsnia's eyes from the door that he makes these observations as keenly as he did? I can dream up a few alternative scenarios:

Craig could have said that while he was waiting for that stall to be unoccupied, the cop farted and it sounded like a dolphin was in trouble. So naturally his eyes wandered, big deal.

He was just checking out the neighborhood, hoping and praying that he wasn't going to be pooping next to some hot looking pervert.

He was so preoccupied with other weighty matters of national importance that he did not realize that his unfocused gaze was riveted on where Karsnia's moist, throbbing, armor-encrusted crotch would be.

He was all cramped up from his prior flight and trying out some loaf pinching, calf and quad strengthening exercises that he read about in Playboy's "Manly Men's Manhood Advisor" section.

He hates spiders, spiders are so gay. He was getting rid of some small webs on the bottom of the stall partition, forcing the little eight legged deviates to go to another stall where they wouldn't be bothering a manly man's man while he relieved himself in a nurturing, family-oriented fashion.

The paper picking and wide stance stories are ridiculous. Craig wasn't mentally agile enough to drag out a career saving excuse, so the real problem is that he should have dummied and lawyered up right from the get go. A good lawyer could have spun this into a preoccupied twitch.
