Slavery -- Demi & Ashton: How's That Pledge Working Out?

I don't want to post this at Christmas, but can we get a count on the slaves freed by Obama servin' Hollywood pledgers?
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Poverty has forced at least 225,000 children in Haiti's cities into slavery as unpaid household servants, far more than previously thought, a report said Tuesday.

The Pan American Development Foundation's report also said some of those children — mostly young girls — suffer sexual, psychological and physical abuse while toiling in extreme hardship.
The report recommends Haiti's government and international donors focus efforts on educating the poor and expanding social services such as shelters for girls, who make up an estimated two-thirds of the child servant population.

Modern Drunkard Magazine

Modern Drunkard.
Hey, it's more than a magazine, it's a timely lifestyle choice.

Boozing Through The Bad Times
Just because the economy is depressed doesn't mean you have to be.

Consider building your own still. 
All you need to do is read a couple books, get the parts, find a welder you can trust, mix up some mash and, uh — that ain’t gonna happen.

If your career choices mean you are utterly unaffected by the current economic crisis, feel free to revel in schadenfreude. 
You’re not a lowlife barfly, you’re a recession-resistant barfly.

Search out cheaper bars. 
And just think how excited those lowlifes will be drinking with a high-class gentleman such as yourself.

If you frequent dive bars, expect new faces. 
Feel free to laugh along with the bartender when they ask to see the wine list.

Realize you may have to choose between food and booze. 
You have to ask yourself: Would I rather be fat or sassy?

Imagine if you’d spent all that money you lost on the stock market stocking up your home bar instead. Just imagine it. 
No hate mail, please.

If money is tight, take full advantage of Happy Hours.
It’s welfare for drunks.

Cut down on non-essentials. 
Like vermouth. And olives. And glassware. --FKR

Albert Gore: Not Merely Wrongo But Evil Too

And a little bit clownishly kookoo.

Nopenhagen climate summit: Al Gore condemned over -- among a multitude of idiocies -- Arctic ice melting prediction

Al Gore, the former Boy Clinton Vice-President, has become embroiled in more climate change lies after claiming that the Arctic could be completely ice-free within five -- count 'em 5 --years.

By Murray Wardrop
Published: 8:55AM GMT 15 Dec 2009

Speaking at the Dopenhagen climate change summit, Albert Junior said new computer modelling suggests there is a 75 per cent chance of the entire polar ice cap melting during the summertime by 2014.

However, he faced embarrassment -- if he were capable of embarrassment -- last night after Dr Wieslav Maslowski, the climatologist whose work the prediction was based on, refuted his claims.

Dr Maslowski, of the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, told The Times: “It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at.

“I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this.”

The blunder follows the controversy over hacked emails (aka hacked lies) from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit, which sceptics (those who can read) claim suggest (prove) scientists manipulated data (lied) to strengthen their argument (lie) that global warming is man-made.

SEALs Hunt

Congressman Michael Rogers writes in Human Events to Secretary of Defense Gates about the SEAL hunt:
Gratitude, Not a Court Martial for the SEAL Three
by Rep. Mike Rogers
They are the best of the best in the entire world. They comprise the top 1 percent of Americans in physical ability, mental aptitude and sheer bravery.

They can push themselves to the physical limits of the human body. Most have advanced degrees from America’s best universities and many speak multiple languages fluently.

They are America’s Navy SEALs, and they put their lives on the line every day in defense of our nation, all of them willing to die to protect America’s way of life.

Why then would the nation they serve take three SEALs off the battle field and consider putting them through courts-martial proceedings based on their capture of one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq?
Why? Because feeble losers have assumed the role of the mighty.

Andrew Klavan Interlude

Sweet interview with Andrew Klavan by Jamie Glazov on FrontPage.
I wanted to post the great paragraph on shame, guilt and self-hatred, but who needs that? Let's look at the Klavan take on Albert Gore, who, without God, sufficient whiskey, or Klavan's humor would be unbearable. Find the shame paragraph yourself, I'll take a nice laff at Junior Gore as my day's contribution to anti-clownery and anti-knuckleheadery.
Klavan: Al Gore is quite hilarious. Global warming! I love that. I seriously think the man had a nervous breakdown and decided to parlay it into an industry. Why go nuts for free when you can make a fortune at it? Going around in his fume-spewing jets preaching to us about our carbon footprints, he reminds me of some ancient Pope with mistresses and catamites and palaces condemning the sinfulness of the poor.
Then there’s that knucklehead Evan Thomas. He’s the guy who practically lynched the Duke University Boys on the cover of Newsweek and then said, “Oh, we had the narrative right we just got the facts wrong.” In my business – writing novels – you can get the narrative right and the facts wrong. In his business, the facts are the narrative. He’s lucky there’s a Keith Olbermann, or he’d be the poster boy for our corrupt idiot news media.

Andrew Sullivan -- Marine Sniper!

Bigtime Andrew Sullivan news from a new source for Beagle News:
The Marine Times:
Marine snipers take top prize, again

SOI-West scout-sniper team wins National Guard competition
By Gidget Fuentes - Staff writer
Posted : Thursday Dec 10, 2009 10:04:25 EST

Sgts. Daniel Gilland and Jose Lucero beat 14 other teams in the second annual Inter-Service Sniper Sustainment Exercise at Fort Chaffee, grabbing a first-place finish at the competition sponsored by the National Guard Marksmanship Training Center’s Sniper School.

The sergeants, both instructors at School of Infantry-West at Camp Pendleton, Calif., finished ahead of the same Army Special Forces team that came second to another two-man Marine sniper team from SOI-West at the International Sniper Competition at Fort Benning, Ga., in October.

Gunnery Sgt. Andrew Sullivan, Scout Sniper Basic Course chief instructor at SOI-West, coached both winning teams and beamed with pride.

“There were some damn good shooters at the competition. It was a fight every day,” Sullivan said. “You had no idea who was ahead; you had no idea about points until the banquet.”
Oh wait, it's a different Andrew Sullivan, kind of a more real Sullivan, a useful Sullivan, one who's no Trig-obsessed Sullivan, one who's no lingering disappointment to his pops, Sullivan.

Congratulations and all respect to Gunnery Sgt. Andrew Sullivan. We honor your service to our nation.

Andrew Sullivan -- Tired Old Homosexual Gentleman

Fag Hag Joy Behar and Hag Fag Andrew Sullivan Attack Mrs. Todd Palin:
Is Trig Her Son?
By Noel Sheppard
December 8, 2009 - 09:55 ET
Palin Derangement Syndrome was on full display Monday evening when HLN's Joy Behar invited the Atlantic's Andrew Sullivan on to trash the former Governor of Alaska.
At issue fully fifteen months after Sarah Palin was thrust into the limelight as John McCain's running mate was whether or not Trig is actually her son.

Behar began the segment: "Sarah Palin may have been coy on the Oprah Show about a possible White House run in 2012. But new poll numbers show she`s a contender. Oy."

This evoked laughter from crew members on the set.

Behar then introduced her guest, and after saying Palin's "people are evil and nasty," the discussion immediately went to the former Governor's [youngest] child..."
Yeah, Joy -- why are the unhappiest bitches always named Joy? -- and the homobeagle calling Mr. and Mrs. Palin nasty.
Talk about the pot calling the kettle beige.
Difficult to keep a straight face as Newsbusters headline writer describes bitches bitching as an "attack."
Two shrill, dried up old c*nts yapping about a real woman married to a real man, yapping about the Palins loving their own son -- loving Trig to his bones, no matter what -- does not an "attack" make.
Strafing ass-protected predator wolves from a low-flying Cessna? That's a real world attack to believe in.

Hijab -- Hajji Baba -- Sharia Shite

More notes from the Religion of Peace Gangsters:
Dunno why but I thought of this old Nat King Cole movie soundtrack song -- Persian Lament -- when reading of the behijabbed nurses in Bolivia.
Glad our monkey-led Iranian friends are getting those gals to cover up their shame glory:
On Wednesday, November 24, Iranian demands that female nurses don the hijab in response to Iran’s providing $1.2 million for funding of the new El Alto city hospital in Bolivia sparked a national outcry among women’s rights advocates within Bolivia. In an international teleconference in La Paz held between Bolivian President, Evo Morales, and Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to celebrate the hospital’s opening, nurses were shown wearing hijabs as part of their new uniform regulations.

Sharia Lessons -- Fort Hood -- Louay Safi

Andrew McCarthy at The Corner gives us the latest religion of peace roadmap to the caliphate.
Read it:
Somebody at Fort Hood Should Be Walking the Plank

Prepare to be infuriated.

It's been brought to my attention by several reliable sources that the Defense Department has brought Louay Safi to Fort Hood as an instructor, and that he has been lecturing on Islam to our troops in Fort Hood who are about to deploy to Afghanistan. Safi is a top official of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and served as research director at the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT).

Worse, last evening, Safi was apparently permitted to present a check (evidently on behalf of ISNA) to the families of the victims of last month's Fort Hood massacre. A military source told the blogger Barbarossa at the Jawa Report: "This is nothing short of blood money. This is criminal and the Ft. Hood base commander should be fired right now."

If you want to get a sense of the garbage our troops are being forced to endure in Fort Hood's classrooms, check out Jihad Watch, where my friend Bob Spencer has more on this episode and on his prior jousts with Safi, here, here, and here.

What on earth is this government doing, and will Congress please do something about it?
Clowns everywhere.
Any of you read Ferrigno's Assassin trilogy? America after the Islamic takover?  I tried not to read it. Set it aside for a year. Once I started, it was all too close to future history. Not great literature, but good storytellin'. All three books.

Dexter Ties A Tie -- Thanks, Dad

Thaddeus McCotter

Over at American Spectator today Christian Josi links to Congressman McCotter speaking to military families at David Horowitz's Restoration Weekend. Take a look.

Here's what Josi says about McCotter:
My Man McCotter
By Christian Josi on 12.2.09 @ 9:13AM

I came across this clip of Rep. Thaddeus McCotter's remarks about military families at Restoration Weekend a few weeks ago, which I found particularly poignant this morning. Take a look:

I'm not sure I can think of many (any?) other elected officials in this day and age who have the courage, humility (not to mention intelligence) that it takes to truly speak from the heart like he does here.

McCotter fills a gaping hole in both the Congress and the GOP. May he stay the course!
I think R.S. McCain Smitty has spoken of McCotter before, over on The Other McCain.
Yeah, here. (Be sure to read the comments...)
The good sense of McCotter is as good as his great name.
And I heard a very happy McCotter on Dennis Miller's radio show recently.
Hey. He looks good. Speaks well. I've heard him laugh and now I've seen him be true.
What's he doing in Congress with those clowns?

Obama West Point

My notes are sketchy but I think it was former Secretary of the Navy John Leyman, speaking at the Reagan Library last month, on a day commemorating the fall of the Berlin wall, who told the story of Reagan's response to the military when planning the Grenada operation:

President Reagan asked "How many troops do you need?"

Commander In Chief Reagan listened to the response and then said "Take that number and double it. There'll be fewer casualties on both sides that way."

Lehman went on to add "Compare that to Mr. Obama telling General McCrystal "I'll get back to you."

Cops Kill Arkansas Jesus -- Better Late Than Never

Clemmons reportedly shot, killed by police
Seattle police shot and killed child raping cop killer Maurice “I’m Jesus” Clemmons early Tuesday morning in the Rainier Valley neighborhood, a police spokesman said.
Huckabeed “I’m Jesus” Clemmons, the sole suspect in the murders of four Lakewood police officers as they sat in a coffee shop Sunday morning, was the subject of an intense beast-hunt since shortly after the coffeehouse slaughter.
Investigators said they believed Clemmons -- who had a violent criminal history in Arkansas and Washington -- was being aided by a network of friends and family.
This guy had friends.
Investigators believe the officers slain were not targeted for reasons other than being police officers.
And he wasn't shot for reasons other than being a waste of skin.
Recently "I’m Jesus" Clemmons was charged in Pierce County for third-degree assault on a police officer and the rape of a child.
That night, a woman acquainted with Clemmons told police, Clemmons made his way into her then-12-year-old daughter's bedroom, where he had sexual contact with the girl. Throughout the assault, the woman told police, Clemmons repeatedly told the girl he was Jesus.
"(The woman) reported that her husband, the defendant, has been acting 'crazy,'" a Pierce County deputy prosecutor told the court. "The defendant kept repeating that (the girl) she should trust him, the world is going to end soon and that he was Jesus."
No one could clarify if Clemmons was the same Jesus claimed to be found in Arkansan prisons as a ruse used by not-so-smart felons to to dupe idiot preachers and Governors (not to exclude ex-preachers turned Governor) for early release or if Clemmons was actually the second coming of Jesus of Nazareth.
People who lived near Clemmons in Pierce County described him as a nice man.
Across the street, idiot neighbor Kerstin Horning, 44, said he was always friendly, working at both a pressure washing and a landscaping business.
"In May when he went wacko, as I would probably describe it, and this all came out, it was kind of shocking, surprising," Horning said. "Up until then he was very normal."
What might be normal in Arkansas is apparently also normal in parts of Washington.

Michelle Obama -- Saying Good Things About Mrs. Obama Today

I was poking around the interwebs the other day and I found some old blog by some old lady and she had to say dismissive things about her political opposites, well she had to say mean things about Republicans, it was required of her, while she was saying good things about Michelle Obama. And it was just so clear what a good thing it was for her to be able to look at Mrs. Obama in the White House -- it was a good thing for her heart and I had to stop for a moment and breathe deep and remember that though I'm so disgusted with these clowns in power that I forget, I just do forget, that there is this other thing going on right now. It is a symbolic thing, maybe merely an image thing going on, but for many in this country it is a good thing -- forgetting for second the bad stuff they are trying to DO -- but the fact that for many just taking a look at that family, and where they are, it is a good and uplifting thing.
And I remembered on the day after the election when a happy, trying-not-to-gloat colleague asked if I was upset about the outcome and I said how could I be upset? This is America. We vote. We win. We lose. We vote again. It's a mystery and it's a miracle and it's majestic.
And of Obama I said I don't think that this will be merely symbolic, but if it is, if it is only symbolic, if his election is only symbolic and nothing positively transformative occurs, well that will be enough for now. God Bless America and our new First Family.

Of course I am -- did I say this already? -- disgusted by what these power clowns attempt, but look at Michelle Obama and her daughters and how can that image be bad for me when it is so good for so many? It should do all of our hearts good. As for the politics, we can run them off in a few years.

Hugh Hewett wrote of Michelle Obama today. I don't listen to him on the radio all that much any more -- mostly since he defended the Harriet Meyers thing. But I read him. Here's his stuff in the DC Examiner today.
Hugh Hewitt: A fine first year for the first lady

But Michelle Obama has had a very good year since her husband won the presidency in November 2008.

Turns out that, like the wonderful Laura Bush, Michelle Obama has become a largely apolitical, powerfully positive figure in public life. She has embraced child nutrition as a key cause, and this is a fight worth fighting.

Mrs. Obama has also set a great example as first mom, with the girls carefully and rightly screened from the peril of becoming unwilling pop icons and mini-celebrities. Her public appearances have been graceful and full of good humor.

With the president, she tried to bring the Olympics home to Chicago, and though the collapse of the American bid seems to have been preordained in retrospect, her willingness to do what she could to help in a high-risk, very public way was gutsy and admirable. A willingness to take some risks is a fine characteristic to model.

Here's the test: Are the nation's school kids looking at the first lady and seeing an example of class, style and learning? Are people from around the world seeing in the first lady a warm and welcoming representative of the country?

The answers throughout 2009 have been yes and yes, and that is a great thing as well as a fine beginning for Michelle Obama.

Huckabee Huckabusted -- Another Buffoon From Arkansas

Four police officers slaughtered by Huckabee protégée. Jake TapTap Tapper wrote this almost two years ago:
In fact, an Arkansas Leader study indicated that Huckabee helped free more prisoners from 1996 through 2004 than were freed in the six neighboring states — Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas — combined.
None of the prosecutors were ever told why Huckabee felt compelled to have a hand in freeing so many prisoners, though all of them speculate that his deeply religious nature led to a strong belief in repentance and forgiveness. In some cases, prosecutors say, evangelical leaders attested that a prisoner had found Jesus and that seemed to influence the governor's thoughts.

Yeah, well if they “found Jesus” in prison, then perhaps that’s where they should stay – right there where their Jesus is to be found.

Okay to go ahead and regain alla that weight, Huckabee. I don’t care what Chuck Norris says, this is just one more reason why I’d never vote for any one from Arkansas – the North Korea of North America.

And yeah, I heard a few minutes of Mike Gallagher this morning and it sounded like he was getting ready to defend Huckabee.
I didn't stay tuned.

Another Black Conservative

Navy SEALs / Navy JAG -- Two Pictures -- You Be The Judge

Who's protecting us?
Rough men or soft lawyers?
September 23, 2010:
Okay. The comparison picture of the JAG officers has been removed from this post. You no longer get to do the visual comparison of the legal minds to the warrior minds. Not on this post. For several reasons.

Tho it was stated clearly that the pic we removed was of Minnesota lawyers, and it was stated clearly that it was used merely for the purpose of illustration, and it was stated clearly that the picture was used with due respect, that said, it may be true that comparing JAGS to SEALS is questionable.

Is it ever appropriate to compare lawyers to warriors? Nope. Not an apt comparison.

Navy SEALS may be compared to Navy SEALS, perhaps to Army Rangers, but not to lawyers.

Those JAG lawyers we had a picture of  looked like good folk, looked a whole lot like us and our friends -- just saying -- and we never should have belittled them on here Boom3 -- or even appeared to belittle them -- in an attempt to express our awe for SEALS or our distain for the prosecution of SEALS that was occurring when this was posted last November.

An observant and annoyed reader (see comments) took us to task for several things in this post.

He questioned our ability to read, noting that the lawyers in the post about Navy JAG lawyers were really Army JAG lawyers. Not a big deal in our book, given the caveats of the post, and we gotta take his word on that.

But, his larger point was the more important point. JAG officers, no matter the branch of service, wear the uniform of the United States.
They serve our country.
They do so often at some sacrifice in their personal lives, they do so at some sacrifice to themselves and their loved ones.
That service must be honored.
That sacrifice must be respected.
At all times.
One ought not let one's distain for legalities or creeping political correctness or wrong-headed prosecutions of warriors -- who also have a job to do -- make one forget the service and sacrifice of these men and women in uniform. That was forgotten for a moment in this post.

However he got to this old post, thanks to our annoyed reader for calling it out in the middle of the night.

And as for the sitting on the couch part of his accusation, I don't even own a couch. But if I did, and if I were sitting on it in safety, I'd attribute that safety to the men and women in uniform, yes even JAG officers, and I'd continue to thank them daily in my actions, in my thoughts and in my prayers.
End of updatery.

Navy Seals Betrayed Again -- Clown Justice

Time for term limits -- Vince Flynn Term Limits

Navy SEALs have secretly captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq — the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. And three of the SEALs who captured him are now facing criminal charges, sources told
The three, all members of the Navy's elite commando unit, have refused non-judicial punishment — called an admiral's mast — and have requested a trial by court-martial.

Ahmed Hashim Abed, whom the military code-named "Objective Amber," told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.

Clown justice in the military starts with the commander clowns at the bigtop top -- currently cracking the three-ring whip up there are the inevitable results of affirmative action, political correctness and "don't punch the thugterrorist" societal oprahclownification.

Blackwater employess had more than busted lips to show for Ahmed Hashim Abed and his religion of peace devotion.

CB over at Another Black Conservative notes, among other gems, that
"the war on terror is not a parlor game!"
Tell that to the greasy fools at tonight's state dinner.
More grease here.

Palin's Book Tour Is Racist -- Says ESPN/CNN Granderson

Over at CNN/ESPN LZ Granderson thinks he received “strange looks” when he scooted over to the Mrs. Todd Palin book signing in Grand Rapids the other day. Perhaps he did get strange looks. Who can say?

We’ve all received looks here and there, I’d guess. I’ve received my own strange looks from time to time, you betcha.

Though the church ladies in the parking lot smiled plenty there were follow-up strange looks when I entered Bishop Blake’s West Angeles Cathedral over on Crenshaw Avenue in Los Angeles a few years ago. Hey, it’s a church. All are welcome to worship. And I had my reasons for being there. And I’d seen those same kinda strange looks at the Church of God in Christ on Adelphi Street in Brooklyn a few decades ago. So what? I had reason to be there too. It’s a small world anyway. Also received a strange look when I lined up to see Tom Sawyer’s cave in Hannibal, Missouri one summer. I had no children with me and a literary interest seemed insufficient to the ticket seller. I love Huck. And Jim. And Tom. And Becky. And Twain. “Yes, I’m alone, thank you. How much to tour the cave? One ticket please.” I was in Hannibal to loose the ashes of a beloved friend into the Mississippi. Rest in peace, LB. Was the dearly departed black? Why does that matter to you? Black or not he surely helped teach me to be a grateful-American. That was his only hyphenation.

Granderson has a problem with Palin’s “curious” itinerary. She’s visiting ‘overwhelmingly white” cities. Of course this 2009 Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation award for online journalism winner cannot appear to be defamatory, so he couches his own bigotry in a perfunctory declaimer:

“This is not to say I believe Sarah Palin is a racist.”
Which is, of course, exactly what he believes. Of Palin. And of those who gather to wish her well. Claiming he is is “profoundly disappointed” in her for allowing “some of the nation’s most painful wounds to be re-opened to advance her career,” Granderson uses the raaaaacism meme to advance his own career.

Which wounds, exactly, would those be?

Gotta say Granderson's right about Noblesville, Indiana. That’s one pretty whitish city. As is the whole Hamilton county. So what? But his own city?

Grand Rapids? 67.3% white.
Fort Bragg and the Army? 73% white.
In an America that is too, then, overwhelmingly whitish. 74% not non-white.

Granderson’s just gotta wait that one out. Still overwhelmingly Christian too, is America. Mrs. Palin is both.

Wonder if Granderson has any problem with Obama visiting overwhelmingly black neighborhoods? Probably not. Typical black columnist.

Granderson also invoked the Southern Poverty Law Center’s bogus stats on the recent bogus alarming bogus increase in bogus white supremacist groups. I’m not saying LZ is lazy or stoopid, or undeserving of his multiple gay awards, or merely the regularly published result of affirmative action, or stuck in an ideological superloop, no, I'm not saying any of that, but SPLC is about as indicative of reality as is the “propaganda masquerading as science” Kinsey Report.

The Other McCain included comment about SPLC in October:

'Evil is too weak a word'

"The fabulously wealthy SPLC exaggerates the scope of racism to frighten donors into opening their wallets. SPLC is nominally a public interest law firm, but it spends little on actual litigation. Instead, it uses politically skewed definitions of racism to indoctrinate children while smearing conservatives who question racial preference programs. Evil is too weak a word to describe the Southern Poverty Law Center."

-- Matthew Vadum, Capital Research Center, and author of The Southern Poverty Law Center: A Twisted Definition of "Hate" (PDF)

Too bad about all those “frustrated white people” Granderson spots gathering to pay their cheerful respects to the heroic Mrs. Todd Palin. They seem to bring out the frustration in liberal whiners.

It's a deep disorder, that frustration. Can’t blame the melanin or the dreadlocks for that.

Into Gob -- Spit On Me For $$, Says Obama Voter in Thousand Oaks

While the President of the United States of America was paying obeisance by bowing to the Japanese Emperor and then groveling to Chine$e Overlord$ a California man caught on to the spirit of the Obama times and paid randy teens to spit in his face.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) - A 39-year-old Southern California man has been arrested for misdemeanor child annoyance after allegedly paying a teenager $31 to spit in his face. The Ventura County Sheriff's Department says Charles Hersel was arrested Wednesday in a sting operation at a mall in Thousand Oaks. He's free from jail pending a court hearing.

A sheriff's statement says Westlake High School students claimed Hersel paid them to yell profanities, spit and slap him in the face. Several also claimed he offered them cash to urinate and defecate on him.

A motive wasn't clear. [Huh? Imitation is the sincerest form of patriotism.]

Authorities say Hersel contacted some teens through the MySpace social networking site.

Hersel couldn't be reached for comment Friday. He had no listed phone number in Thousand Oaks.
