Liberals Still Suck

Liberals have big hearts to make up for what they lack in brains. Perhaps it isn't fair of me to say this--I know there are plenty of smart liberals out there with degrees in studies other than Ancient Dance Rituals as a Prelude to Coitus, but it seems that even those liberals have a somewhat simple-minded way of looking at life. Let me 'splain.

Take Obama (please). He talks a good game about income inequality, as if the concept of some people making more money than you is unfair, (just because they work harder and can accomplish more), but it seems to me that income opportunity is more realistic than income inequality. There will always be people better at doing things than other people, and in order to retain them, employers will pay them more. That's the free market. 

Imagine if all baseball players had income equality. Why should they try to excel? You'd see more bunting to save energy, bases on balls thrown by pitchers who were not going to exert themselves, and fewer spectators. There would be no incentive to excel. The game would be about as exciting as watching cheese mold. Think about it, Mr. Obama.


SOTU Yadda Yadda

What a speech; I was mesmerized. The term 'mesmerized' comes from that famous hypnotist, Anton Mesmer, a BFF of Sigmund Freud, and a person who influenced magicians the world over. So what I'm saying is that Obama basically put me into a stage of sleep similar to that of hypnosis--I heard him, but I didn't give a fig what he was saying since he has said it all before. They are mere words on a mere Tele Prompter that could have just as easily been written with smoke in a high wind.

The speech was as anemic as a down-and-out vampire. Obama avoided important issues like the national debt and Benghazi, but, when you think about it, maybe they weren't important to him. He spoke about Obamacare but only gave the positives and carefully danced around the negatives. And to end on an upbeat note, he used an Army Ranger, Cory Remburg, a man who served 9 or 10 tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and suffered severe injuries that caused him brain damage, to gain applause and a sense that somehow Obama is the hero being applauded.

Hillary and Herpetology

Hillary can see the future. She knows the GOP isn't going to let the Benghazi terrorist attack disappear--they're going to bring it up and she is going to say Republicans are being bullies. She said she regrets Benghazi, but she never said she was sorry for lying about it, or even saying she was sorry. Just regret. And if you heard the interview in which she made that statement, you had to believe she meant the regret as much as she meant the cause of the attack was from a video. She's about as sincere as Iran complying with the USA's demands for lifting the sanctions.

I Am Mommy's Unborn Child

Hi Mommy, it's me--I don't have a name. You didn't want to give me a name because that would make me too human to you, you said, but I am human. I was human the moment I was conceived--if I wasn't, then what was I? Why don't you want to think of me as a real person? I am a real person, but I have a lot of growing yet to do.

It's warm and it feels safe in here but I still can't wait to get our of your belly and meet you. I know that you'll love me because I'm a part of you, and I know that you want what's best for me because that's what mommies do.

I heard you talking to someone about how I will be too much of a burden to raise once I've been born, but, and I don't like to say this, I didn't ask to be conceived. Now that I have been, it would be a godsend to be born. Hey, I like the word 'godsend;' it makes me feel special.

Maybe when I'm born and grow up, I can be a mommy like you. Oh, you didn't know if I was a boy or a girl because you didn't want to think of me as a real person. Oh, I'm sorry. 

Something is hurting me, Mommy. Something--


Obamacare's Dirty Secret

When he said, "If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor," he might have just as honestly added: "And if you have religious or moral objections to abortion, you will never have to finance it." That would have been just as honest, as it turns out, because it seems that Obamacare insurance companies are surreptitiously adding a surcharge to cover the cost of abortions. At least, this is what some congressional leaders are claiming, and it violates a federal law. But since when has the Obama administration worried about the law? After all, laws are generated by that outdated and inconvenient document, the US Constitution.

Most people will not know about the surcharge because it wasn't announced and it's only a buck a month--no big deal, unless you're turned off by killing the unborn.

Obama promised his healthcare bill would not cover abortion, but maybe he's doing to further the liberal agenda; it certainly isn't helping the unborn's future agendas. Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA) knew Obama was blowing smoke when he made that claim because the Obamacare bill stipulated the $1 a month surcharge for plans that covered abortions and it was unclear distinguishing which plans included abortion and the cost of the murder.

A bill is being introduced this week that demands full disclosure with an itemized premium, and it will also prohibit federal subsidies for plans that cover abortions. The bill (HR-7) known as the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act," will be introduced by Eric Cantor, the House Majority Leader.

But Obama has a pen and he has a phone. He also has no respect for the concept of Checks and balances--he is a strong believer in executive authority but only when he's the executive in question.

What the GOP does to keep Obama in line, to keep him from grabbing more and more power and keep the USA from resembling a banana republic, will dictate where they stand. Will they show courage or complacency? Obama needs to have his reins pulled back and if he refuses, we need to start impeachment procedures. Will our party leaders fulfill their obligation? 


My latest novel, Jihad Joe, is about Islamic terrorism and suspense.  In it I challenge the precepts of the religion through my protagonist, Zed Nill, a journalist, captured by terrorists and who is destined to be killed if the American President refuses to release three Gitmo prisoners.  Of course, American policy demands we never give in to terrorists, and for Zed, the clock is ticking.

Sunday Brain Flush

I have a pen and I have a phone . . . the words of Obama threatening us with unilateral action on policy. Well, Obama also has an ass, it doesn't mean he has to act like one. He acts like everything is an emergency so that he can go ahead and impose policy upon the American people without the checks and balances our country was founded upon. Nobody said it should be easy changing the law. If it was, then we might as well be living in a banana republic.

There needs to come a time when congress steps in and stops this man from acting like he's the king of his kingdom. This is America, and there is no justifiable emergency that makes it understandable to forgo the legislature. Besides, Obama has done nothing of value for this country and there are plenty of elite  career politicians who are in the same category. 

Obama is a socialist. Spreading the wealth is a socialist notion. His healthcare legislation is socialist. His background is socialist. And let's face it; Obama is a divider and uses race as one of the cleavers to make his false claims.

But let's not forget the Republicans who vote the liberal line; the RINOs, as they say. McCain is a primary example--he has voted against the Second Amendment and along the liberal lines regarding immigration. Lindsey Graham is another politician who votes in a similar manner. To Graham's credit, he seems to be realistic about Iran and our national security.  In any case, we need to be very mindful how we vote in the midterms and show the GOP that we are serious about conservative values.

Finally, it's my birthday tomorrow, so I probably will take the day off.

Peace, patriots.

Mall Control: the case for banning them all

There was yet another mall shooting in the Columbia, Maryland. Like the mall shooting in Kenya, the mall shooting in New Jersey, this shooting left people scrambling for cover, but three people were left dead; one very likely being the shooter. Two of the dead were store employees, a man and woman, both in their twenties, and at this writing, the identity of the shooter is still unknown. In addition, one other person was wounded by gunfire and four others were hospitalized in the ordeal.

If this doesn't tell you under no uncertain terms that mall control is needed in this country, I don't know what will.

Obama's State of the Union: Unauthorized Version

I was fortunate to get my hands on President Obama's State of the Union speech that he will give next week. It is uncut and unedited.

My fellow folks,

Well, it's a new year and I'm very optimistic that it's gonna be a great one. My signature legislation has finally gotten off the ground and the folks are gonna see better health care than they ever had in the history of this country. (Try to look like you mean it.) The website is working like a well-oiled machine and we're signing up over five thousand people a day. Even I have signed up, (I had a lackey do it for me) but I already have coverage befittin' my position as Commander in Chief.

I know some of you have your doubts, but let me assure you, the doctors you have now and the policy you've been moved to, you will be able to keep. The 59% of you who oppose the Affordable Care Act, are only opposing it because you can't afford it.

Insofar as Benghazi is concerned, let me put your mind at ease and assure you that my administration is getting to the bottom of this situation. Do not allow the extremists from the Tea Party sway your thinking--Benghazi was not a scandal anymore than the IRS, Associated Press, or Fast and Furious were scandals. It's just the way it is--what I'm saying is, that it is what it is.

Iran promises to follow the rules and will not enrich uranium and try their very very best to get along with Israel. In that regard, they will no longer refer to Jews as apes, nor refer to Christians as pigs. However, they will continue to uphold the same policies they've held dear from the Qu'ran when dealing with gays and women. That's okay. That's to be expected from a nation whose religion is the RELIGION OF PEACE (smile and try not to bow)

As you might have heard, Justin Beiber was arrested for drag racin', drinkin' and smokin' marijuana cigarettes. Justin is a Canadian and it would be unconscionable to deport him, so I ask for your support and prayers. You may know that I've indulged in smokin' up when I was a kid and a proud member of the Choom gang. I feel for the Beebs and Michelle and I plan to have him over for dinner when he can make it.

Edward Snowden has done a web forum to address NSA spying. This has been previously addressed by me and I don't care to discuss it further. Suffice it to say, if we can get our hands on Mr. Snowden, he will face felony charges and will have his day in court. Remember, there is a fine balance between national security and the Constitution.

The military will now be allowed to express their religious and cultural beliefs. Jews can wear yarmulkes, Sikhs can wear their hair long and maintain their beard, and Muslims can wear camouflage burqas. 

And speaking of security, the Olympics are coming (big smile-lots of teeth). President Putin has assured me that security will be at a maximum. While 1500 square miles around Sochi is vulnerable, I trust that our Russian friends will do a top notch job protectin' our athletes. I just wish my man Magic could be there for the team, but he's a summer Olympic guy. In spite of this, we're sendin' over our own security team who'll be keepin' a close watch out for any trouble that may come from extremists like the Christian right wing loonies I've spoken about.

The economy is hummin' like a hummin' bird's butt. More jobs have been created, the minimum wage is goin' up, and we're gettin' out of Afghanistan soon.  Do not believe what you hear on that other TV station and those crazy right wing nut radio stations. Our next step to make this country better is to join hands with our Muslim brothers and sisters, and create a more level playing field for those of us who are less fortunate. Income redistribution is the only fair way to go (except for me, suckers).


Abortion in America

They braved the cold in Washington D.C. yesterday as tens of thousands of pro-life individuals demonstrated to end abortion in the March for Life. It was the 41st anniversary of Roe v Wade. 

There are now more people who are pro-life than those for killing the unborn. Most Americans, about 84%, would limit abortions to the first three months of pregnancy; of those, 58% are strongly pro-choice. A Marist Poll found that 74% of Americans would ban abortions after 20 weeks except to save the life of the mother (a rarity that pro-choice people play upon as if it happens half the time). Many Americans (53%) believe life begins at conception and fully 62% think abortion is morally wrong.


The survey also found that most people believe parents should be notified before an abortion can be obtained for their minor child (abut 80%), and 79% want a 24 hour waiting period to give time to think it over. Fifty-eight percent support the idea of showing the woman an ultrasound image of her baby at least one day prior to the abortion, and 57% believe abortion does a woman more harm than good--the numbers were much higher for the harm it does to the baby.


As of last January, there have been 55,772,015 abortions and the number is obviously a lot higher a year later. From 2011 to 2012, Planned Parenthood (yes, it's an oxymoron) performed 333,964 abortions and generated about $150 million for the slaughter with about $1.2 billion in revenue overall. In the 2011 to 2012 time frame, only 2300 customers were referred to adoption services. Compare that to the number of the dead, and the math is staggering.

“I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.” –Ronald Reagan

We Didn't Vote for Liberals

Sung to the tune of Billy Joel's, "We Didn't Start the Fire."

Wendy Davis, Hillary, Eric Holder, anarchy
Weiner, Twitter, Zimmer, Moore
Share your wealth and then give more.

We didn't vote for liberals,
They're never realistic
Then they became sadistic,
We didn't vote for liberals,
With their socialist ways
We've seen better days.

Brian Terry, Occupy, Stevens, Smith, Obama's lies,
Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty,
Obamacare shows nothing's free.

We didn't vote for liberals,
They're never realistic
Then they became sadistic,
We didn't vote for liberals,
With their socialist ways
We've seen better days.

Saul Alinsky, Michelle O, terrorism's gotta go,
Bows in Saudi to the shoes,
No wonder patriots got the blues.

We didn't vote for liberals,
They're never realistic
Then they became sadistic,
We didn't vote for liberals,
With their socialist ways
We've seen better days.


The Inconvenient Facts

Wendy Davis has a lot in common with Michelle Obama: they both cried poverty in order to win public sympathy and perhaps get an election to turn their way. With Michelle, it worked, with Wendy, probably not so much.

Back on September 5, 2012, Joel B. Pollack of Breitbart News wrote an interesting article (Fact Check: First Lady's Fairy Tale of Struggle) about the First Lady and how she lied to the American public to cast herself and Barack in a sympathetic light. 

Cowardly Cuomo Gets His Lawyer to Walk it Back

New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo, told pro-life, anti- gay marriage, and pro-assault weapons advocates they are not welcome in New York, ". . . because that's not who New Yorkers are." Evidently, he hasn't met New Yorkers like me, and I've been a New Yorker before he was born.

Cuomo's assertion angered Fox News' Sean Hannity enough that he threatened to leave New York: "Governor Cuomo, I'm going to leave and I'm taking all my money with me--every single solitary penny."

Privacy Schmivacy

Isn't it ironic that when the planes took down the Twin Towers on 911, people wanted to blame the CIA for not connecting the dots that might have caught two of the terrorists involved? But now that the NSA got caught with their ear on the phone extension, at least digitally,  we are saying that they are doing too much. The NSA is not listening to actual conversations, but are actively looking for overseas calls or calls by known terrorists.

People scream for more privacy but more often than not, these people tell their life stories on Facebook or walk down the street with their cell phones having private conversations for all to hear. Some people even record their own attacks on innocent elderly women so their buddies can watch how "cool" these cowards are.

You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a video camera recording your bizarre cat-swinging behavior.  Privacy has become a myth.

This is a bipartisan issue and there are undoubtedly many mixed feelings about it, but what would the public say if, in fact, there is another large terrorist attack? Will they blame the secret organizations like the NSA and CIA who are here to protect us? 

Just saying. (I hate saying "just saying," but it felt right.)

Double Standards of the Left

Tim Donnelly is running for governor of California. He is a member of the Tea Party. Former Miss Venezuela, Maria Conchita Alonso, is endorsing him and has appeared in a TV ad to do just that. Ms. Alonso gained fame for such Hollywood hits like "Moscow on the Hudson," and "The Running Man."

Ms. Alonso worked for a San Francisco arts organization and was to star in its rendition of the "Vagina Monologues," which I have not seen, but I suspect differs significantly from the Readers Digest series, "I Am Joe's Heart (Lungs, Kidneys, Eyes, and so on). Eliana Lopez, the producer of the "Vagina Monologues" spoke to KPIX 5 explaining that Ms. Alonso will no longer be appearing in the play. Ms. Lopez said, "Of course she has the right to say whatever she wants. But we're in the middle of the Mission. Doing what she is doing is against what we believe." Several Latino organizations have also criticized Ms. Alonso for the endorsement.

To be fair, in the ad, Ms. Alonso "translates" Mr. Donnelly's remarks with a few slightly off-color Spanish expressions, but let's face it, if Donnelly was a liberal instead of a Tea Party conservative, there would be no story, and Maria Conchita Alonso would be lauded by the left.

Hope for Change Nails the Job Interview Again

He did great on the job interviews; knew just what to say and influence us to hire him twice, but since he has been on the job, his failure to win over Muslim nations, improve the economy, create real jobs, and get to the bottom of the obvious corruption and scandals that have plagued us since we hired him, is breathtaking. But what seems to be the most incredible thing of all is that there are still many liberals out there who love Barack Hussein Obama.

We the People Shoot That Puck

Team USA's women's hockey team is scheduled to play at the Olympic games in just a few weeks.  Their goalie, Jessie Vetter, had to remove the words of the US Constitution, "We the People,"  from her custom-made helmet, which also bore her name. That too had to come off. The decision to remove these objectionable words from her helmet came from the International Olympic Committee.

Ron Slater, the artist who designed this mask (and many others for the NHL), worked with Vesser on its creation. He told FoxNews.com that he believes the IOC views our Constitution as "propaganda" that promotes the USA over other countries. That's ridiculous--we don't need to advertise to other countries to get them to leave theirs and come to ours--they do it in droves. 

The mask will still retain the Statue of Liberty, a "USA" shield, and a screaming eagle.

Lone Survivor Briefly Reviewed

I don't get out much but when I learned "Lone Survivor" came to a theater near me, I knew I had to see it instead of having to wait two years for it to come to Netflix. 

The socialist, America-hating, gun-control advocating, everybody-gets-a-trophy, it takes a village, loose-wristed, hypocritical, share-your-wealth, liberals, claims this movie is a propaganda tool for the military. I disagree. It's a propaganda tool for sacrifice and America. It's a tool for patriotism--a concept the left hates. If it were up to them, they'd have the United Nations dictating our policies, much like Obama is currently doing so. 

Is "Lone Survivor" a great movie? Yes, unless you're dating Janeane Garofalo, and if you are, this blog probably isn't for you. Does this movie glorify the Navy SEALs? No, the SEALs do that without any help.

My wife came with me to see the flick and while this is clearly not a "chick flick," she liked it overall, but had to take her eyes off the screen at times. My wife is an "ex-Muslim," or an apostate, which is the actual term. She is very much aware about the horrors of this geopolitical "religion." She said that the bearded Taliban in the movie reminded her of a time she spent in Kashmir, where Islam is the center of their universe and jihad is their plan.

The movie is about 2 hours long but it moves quickly. The acting is excellent--Mark Wahlberg is spot on. The story is amazing and the heroism is so palpable you almost think it's fiction.

I don't do movie reviews but I had to say something about this movie. I highly recommend it--finally you can be proud to be an American instead of being ashamed of our president.


My latest novel, Jihad Joe, is about Islamic terrorism and suspense.  In it I challenge the precepts of the religion through my protagonist, Zed Nill, a journalist, captured by terrorists and who is destined to be killed if the American President refuses to release three Gitmo prisoners.  Of course, American policy demands we never give in to terrorists, and for Zed, the clock is ticking.
                                             


Brooklyn Beheading Islamic Style




Tuesday, January 8th, in the Kensington section of Brooklyn, New York, a 27 year old Islamic man named Rasel Siddiquee, had an argument with his landlord, 57 year old Mahuddin Mahmud. The argument ended with Siddiquee almost totally beheading Mahmud and burning his face. Then Siddiquee stole about $20 thousand from the victim's safe and headed out to JFK Airport where he was apprehended. Upon capture he blurted to authorities, "I killed someone today."

Mahmud was a father of three and had come to the USA from Bangladesh several decades ago. He owned a small computer business and never had problems with the law. Saddiquee lived in his basement, after arriving from Bangladesh about three years ago, and since Muslims are the second largest group of illegal immigrants in New York, it is highly likely Siddiquee fell into this category. In fact, I'd bet my Koran on it. With what happened in 2001, on September 11th, I'm at a loss to understand why illegal immigrants aren't legally dealt with.

The local papers covered the story with a heading: "Rasel Siddiquee arrested in
murder of Mahuddin Mahmud in Kensington." I believe there are more relevant issues at play, like the way the victim was killed, as well as where the murderer was from, and the fact that beheading is styled from the suggestion from the Koran that tells Muslims to "smite your enemy on the neck."

I no longer live in Brooklyn, but I was born and raised there. I grew up in the Kensington section of Brooklyn and moved back to this neighborhood about ten years ago, living across the street from the grammar school I attended as a child. 

Clearly the neighborhood changed over the years. The movie theater where I saw Jerry Lewis in person (he was not children-friendly) was now broken up into several stores--mostly 99 cent joints. The bakery we used was Bangladesh and the kulfi ice cream was delicious. One a year the Bangladeshi community had a street fair along McDonald and Church Avenues. 

But when I walked along McDonald Avenue with my Indian wife, we got what seemed to be negative stares from the locals. This was especially evident when we walked the several blocks to the street fair. Guys with Islamic sweatbands would look at us as if we didn't belong there; as if they owned the streets. It was discomforting.

My wife and I moved away three years ago, around the same time Siddiquee moved to the area. The thing about the Islamic style murder that surprises me isn't that it happened; it's that it didn't happen sooner.

I will always miss Brooklyn, but not the Brooklyn that exists today.


My latest suspense novel, Jihad Joe, is about Islamic terrorism.  The precepts of Islam are challenged by a journalist, captured by terrorists and who is destined to be killed if the American President refuses to release three Gitmo prisoners.  Of course, American policy demands we never give in to terrorists, and for Zed, the clock is ticking.

Benghazi: the truth exposed

Benghazi. Four dead Americans: Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, information officer, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, both former SEALs.  Jay Carney told us last year that it "happened so long ago," as if the Obama administration earned immunity over time. 

Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, Obama, and Carney said that a crummy video on the life of Mohammed caused the attack. Recent testimony shows that they all lied to the American people. They scammed us and even Diane Feinstein (D-CA) is saying that the New York Times is wrong to recently reclaim that the attack was sparked by an anti-Islamic video. From what we've learned thus far, it seems that Feinstein knew about who was responsible for the attack as she received information within minutes of the assault. The question now remains, why didn't Feinstein tell the American public the truth when she knew it?

We demanded answers. We had our Benghazi banners on our Twitter avatars. We didn't stop speaking about the attack. We blogged, we spoke to friends, we didn't let up. The one thing most of us can agree on is that  the latest testimony and findings, should give us all the reason we need to distrust the Times forever more.

Eric Holder's Department of Justice, however, seems quicker to pursue baseball scandals before pursuing those such as Benghazi.  

I miss the America that existed when I was growing up in New York City. We pledged allegiance to the flag, teachers could discipline us without losing their job,  and we improved our behavior as a result; grades differed, trophies were given out to those of us who actually won an event, not merely participated in it, and being patriotic didn't get our parents an IRS audit.

My latest novel, Jihad Joe, is about Islamic terrorism and suspense.  In it I challenge the precepts of the religion through my protagonist, Zed Nill, a journalist, captured by terrorists and who is destined to be killed if the American President refuses to release three Gitmo prisoners.  Of course, American policy demands we never give in to terrorists, and for Zed, the clock is ticking.

Why Christie Is Dangerous to Our Health

Chris Christie is currently polling better than any potential candidate for the 2016 presidential election, at least he was before Bridge Gate. He was even slightly ahead of Hillary, a woman with first name recognition, second only to Madonna, Cher, and Prince, who now goes by the name       .  However, Hillary has her own problems now that there is a new book out about her entitled "HRC." The book discusses her "hit list" of those in politics who supported Obama for president instead of her. But now the big question is whether or not Christie is the best  person for POTUS.

I have strong reasons to believe that Christie is not the man for the job as president based on how I view our national security needs.

In 2008, when he served as U.S. Attorney for New Jersey, Christie praised Mohammed Qatanani, imam of the Islamic Center of Passaic County, as "a man of great goodwill." He embraced the man and hugged him. The fawning occurred soon after Qatanani went ballistic against Jews and openly admitted to supporting Hamas, an organization designated a terror organization by the US. To make matters worse, the fawning was done on the eve of Qatanani's deportation hearing regarding an Israeli conviction for his membership of Hamas. Christie went so far as to assign Assistant US Attorney Charles McKenna to testify as Qatanani's character witness. A man named Sohail Mohammed was Qatanani's lawyer for the case--more on him below.

In 2010, a New Jersey Transit worker named Derek Fenton burned 3 pages of a Koran at a 9-11 memorial service. Christie gave his blessings for the New Jersey Transit to terminate Fenton's employment and he stated, "That kind of intolerance is something I think is unacceptable. So I don't have a problem with him being fired." What Christie should have said was "That kind of intolerance will not be tolerated, and Article One, be damned." The ACLU successfully intervened on Fenton's behalf and he got his job back. When the ACLU is on the right side of history, you can bet the other side is scratching their collective heads.

Christie appointed Sohail Mohammed to the New Jersey state superior court in 2011. Mohammed had served as general counsel to the American Muslim Union, a group of mouth-breathers who stated that a "Zionist Commando Orchestrated the 9-11 Terrorist Attacks." He also acted as a spokesman for Muslim prisoners who had gone on a hunger strike after being jailed during Ramadan, defending Sami al-Arian, a Palestinian Islamic jihadist. Mohammed characterized the legal proceeding as "nothing more than a witch-hunt."  As mentioned above, Mohammed was Qatanani's lawyer regarding the deportation hearing.

When Mohammed was asked appropriate questions by New Jersey's Senate Judiciary Committee about his strong affinity for Islam's Shari'a (law), Christie verbally attacked the lawmakers, saying, "Shari'a law has nothing to do with this [appointment of Mohammed] at all. It's crazy. It's crazy . . . So, this Shari'a law business is crap. It's just crazy. And I'm tired of dealing with crazies. I mean, you know, it's just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background." Of course, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who also has ties to various Islamic groups with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, gave Christie a hearty "attaboy."

Is the "Shari'a law business" crap? If you know anything about Shari'a law, you know that it treats women as inferior to men and takes away their rights. It makes homosexuality a capital offense. It goes against the US Constitution, just like Christie did when he went against Fenton's freedom of expression.

In 2012 the NYPD conducted surveillance of Islamists in Newark, New Jersey and New Brunswick. Christie was outraged and termed the action arrogant and paranoid. He mocked NYPD Commissioner, Raymond Kelly as "all knowing, all seeing." If you look at any Koran, you will see Allah is described this way. But more importantly, the NYPD was doing important counter-terrorism work and Christie attacked those who protect us from terrorists. Mosques are notorious for spawning terrorism and Kelly knows that; one wonders what Christie knows.

On one hand, when an issue regarding Islam arises, Christie takes the side of Islam every time. On the other hand, Christie is pro-Israel. This seems strangely contradictory and can only be a function of something not very obvious; maybe it's his ego. Maybe he's looking for approval from both the Jews and those who hate the Jews. The Koran very clearly spells out Mohammad's animosity toward the Jews most especially, as well as all non-Muslims.

Whatever the reason for this dichotomy, it should be noted that Christie scores high with CAIR and is on the list to recognize those who "deserve recognition for their outstanding contributions to pushing back against Islamophobic trends in 2011 and 2012." CAIR is an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood and is one of over a dozen such arms. In fact, the word "Islamophobia" was invented by them to prevent negative dialogue about the religion of peace. The term "Islamophobia" is the Muslim's equivalent of "racist" used by liberals whenever they want to end political debate.

I like Christie's directness; it's refreshing to see a politician who doesn't make any pretences about what he thinks. But it is what he thinks that disturbs me when it comes to his apparent naivete when it comes to CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood. It disturbs me that he has appointed a man to sit on the bench who has made anti-Semitic statements and who is a member of Hamas.

And if Christie is not naive about CAIR and Hamas, that's even more disturbing. We've had one president who appears to support Islam more than he does the Constitution and Christianity, we cannot suffer the consequences of another person who appears to be an Islamic apologist. I don't want a liberal, running the country, but I don't want Christie, a fiscal conservative at best, an Islam apologist at worst, running it either. When CAIR praises somebody, I immediately know that there's a problem with that somebody. 

My latest novel, Jihad Joe, is about Islamic terrorism and suspense.  In it I challenge the precepts of the religion through my protagonist, Zed Nill, a journalist, captured by terrorists and who is destined to be killed if the American President refuses to release three Gitmo prisoners.  Of course, American policy demands we never give in to terrorists, and for Zed, the clock is ticking.
                                             


You Wanna Bet Lynne Stewart Sticks Around for Years?

Judge John Koeltl, a Bill Clinton appointee, has allowed Lynne Irene Stewart to go free from prison. Stewart, the 74 year old disbarred attorney was convicted on charges of conspiracy and providing material support to terrorists.

 Koeltl sentenced her to 28 months in prison and her felony conviction led to the disbarring when she was found guilty of passing messages from Omar Abdel-Rahman, better known as the Blind Sheikh. Rahman, you may recall, is an Egyptian cleric convicted of planning terror attacks, including the bombing of the World Trade Center.  His organization, al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya, was responsible for the Luxor Massacre, which killed 58 tourists and 4 Egyptian policemen on November 17, 1997. In the attack, a 5 year old British child was killed, 4 Japanese couples on their honeymoons, and others from different nations. The killing went on for 45 minutes and the bodies were mutilated, particularly the women. It was brutal and barbaric. (The word barbaric comes from the Barbary Coast where the US Navy fought the Barbary pirates, who, coincidentally, were Muslim.)

Consensual Suicide

If we sit back and do nothing, we will have committed consensual suicide. I'm referring to terrorism, and more specifically, Islamic terrorism with its concomitant anti-Semitism and intolerance of all that is not Islamic. Let's look at some recent examples you may not have read about in the mainstream media.


Russian authorities recently arrested five Jihad terror plotters in the town of Nalchik, about 185 miles east of Sochi. This is where the 2014 Olympic Games are to be held. The Muslim leader, Doku Umarov, said Muslims should “use maximum force on the path of Allah to disrupt the Satanic dancing.” He also claimed that the Russians plan to hold the games on the "bones of Muslim ancestors" buried in the territory of their land in the Black Sea, and “we Mujahedin are obliged not to permit that – – using any methods allowed us by the Almighty Allah.” The BBC reported this on January 11th.

My Latest Predictions for 2014

Everyone loves predictions, especially people who enjoy calling pundits who make predictions, idiots. Well, it's a new year and I'm going to go out on a limb and predict what I see for this year.

Here we go. 

1. I predict the Broncos will make it to the Superbowl and win the game by a score of 23 to 17, or perhaps 36 to 21, or something like that. If they lose, I believe whoever they play will win by the same scores (above). They will get to the Superbowl by beating New England by a score of 26 to 16.

The IRS Plot Thickens, Bosserman and the Media Sickens

Barbara Kay Bosserman has been slated (no pun intended) to head the IRS Tea Party Targeting investigation, Stephen Dinan, of the Washington Times. reported on Wednesday.

 Babs is a trial lawyer who maxed out her legal campaign contribution allowance to Obama in both the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns, donating to the tune of over $6000. She has also given generously to the Democratic party. While she is perfectly allowed to do this, it shows a clear political bias which, if she were being honest, would cause her to not accept the position. That's what honest lawyers do--they recuse themselves from cases in which there has been prior involvement; but Babs is the gift that keeps on giving.

Christie Apologizes About the Bridge Thing, Ted Kennedy Didn't

Chris Christie went on an apology tour today, took responsibility and actually fired people. He totally denied knowledge of the situation in Fort Lee, NJ, where lanes were closed on the Jersey side of the George Washington Bridge, the busiest bridge in the country. 

When it comes to bridges, Democrats need to tread carefully. They have Ted Kennedy and his bridge, when, in 1969, in a drunken state, he drove his car off the Chappaquiddick Bridge into the river, and his female passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, not his wife, drowned while Teddy saved his own butt by leaving her and swimming to safety. He didn't report the incident for nine hours and later plead guilty for leaving the scene. He could have plead guilty to being a coward, but he was a Kennedy, and that option was never offered. He was given  a slap on the wrist with a two month suspended jail sentence. Now that's a bridge with a bigger story than Christie.

The liberals are going nuts with the Christie story. Rush Limbaugh believes it's the media's way of not having to talk about Bob Gates' book that slams Obama and his inability to be a leader. The left is acting like Chris Christie drove off a bridge and killed a woman by failing to go back to save her.

While I'm not a huge Chris Christie fan, if he gets the nomination for the '16 presidential election, I would vote for him. I don't know if he was telling the truth, but he has done all that he should have done under the circumstances. Compared to Obama's scandals, this was as significant as Debby Wasserman Schultz's dental work. If Christie was a Democrat, the media would laugh it off and discuss Hillary's last award. But as a Republican, they would like to perform an orchiectomy without anesthesia just for laughs.

We'll Have Fun Fun Fun Now That Barry Took Incentive Away Now

President Obama wants to extend unemployment benefits for at least a million Americans, in spite of the fact that four million jobs are actually available at this time. But who can blame our president--he just wants to give a helping hand to those Americans who are too incapacitated to work. 


"My Teleprompter says . . . "
Wait. . . this just in: these unemployed people are actually able-bodied men and women who have grown accustomed to  staying home studying law via Judge Judy, and social science, via As the World Turns. Some of these unemployed are going so far as to study medicine via General Hospital. And like the soap operas and Judge Judy shows, the benefits seem to go on and on, having no end in sight.

When you pay people to stay home, they tend to stay home. When unemployment poses no emergency, they have no incentive to get off their duff and look for work, or even when they do, the jobs they interview for aren't exactly what they're looking for, so they keep looking. They become very selective.

A Same-Sex Marriage Marathon

Imagine you're at a same-sex wedding and all the big-shot liberals are there. The music is playing and there's Hillary and Bill doing the Hustle. Obama and Mooch are next to them doing the Funky Chicken and John Kerry and his billionaire wife are dancing something called The Chicken of Nam Dance. Of  course, we have Joe Biden doing the Jerk.

Along the walls of the reception area ballroom are various doors, resembling changing rooms or closets. Out of door number one, steps Anderson Cooper and Ben Maisani, his beau, stepping out of the closet and dancing with the others. Not long ago, Ben was caught playing tonsil hockey with another man, but they had since reconciled and walked together down the aisle.

From door number two steps Robin Roberts and Amber, her new bride. They hold hands and walk to the center of the room, plant deep, wet kisses deep down into each other's tonsils, and dance as one. Both look around the room to see if anyone is watching. Nobody is watching.

Door number three features Rosie O'Donnell and her wife, Michelle Rounds. They came here to the marathon wedding to renew their vows.  Rosie grabs her butt and leads her out onto the dance floor where they dance something that resembles the Lambada. 

Rachel Maddow diddy-bops out of door four with her wife, Susan who is woman wearing comfortable dance shoes, a loving smile, and an Obama button. They make a lovely couple as Rachel glides her along the floor as they dance The Bristol Palin Stomp.

Finally, our of door number five steps Don Lemon and his husband, Ben Tinker. Ben is doing his best Putin impression as he dances shirtless with Don, doing a rakish cha-cha.


Good to see he found his Schmuck hat
And off in a corner, all by himself, we see Michael Moore twerking with Piers Morgan to a song by Pink Floyd entitled "Money."

The wedding is sponsored by GLAAD, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and Chris Matthews.

Finally, I want to be clear; I have nothing against same-sex marriage or homosexuality, or lesbians, or guys who become gals and vice versa. I don`t have anything against it, but I DO NOT CARE ONE IOTA WHETHER YOU ARE GAY OR STRAIGHT OR THINK YOU`RE A WOMAN TRAPPED IN A MAN`S BODY, AND VICE-VERSA. I DON`T CARE AND NEITHER DO MOST PEOPLE. Even if you`re a celebrity, who you share body fluids with, who you love, how you love them, is not my concern nor my business. If you are proud to be gay, I can say with confidence that I am proud to be straight. You are lucky your parents are or were straight, for the most part, or you`would have never been born. If everyone was like you, this would be the last generation of humans on earth, so don`t be so nasty to us straight people. We are just as nice, as good, and as intelligent as you believe you are.

Why you think you need to "come out of the closet" and announce to the world that you are gay, is beyond my ken. Keep it to yourself. Ditch the parades or at least leave us to have ours without you having to be the gay contingent. Be gay, be lesbian, be discreet.

Islamists at the Olympic Hunger Games?

Volgograd--formerly known as Stalingrad--is located about 600 miles (or 983.7 km) from Sochi, Russia.  It would take you about 15 hours to go from Volgograd to Sochi by car (without a radar detector). As you probably know, the 2014 Winter Olympic Games will be held in Sochi next month.

As you may also know, last month, two suicide bombers set off their bombs in Volgograd, two days apart. The death toll stands at 34 for scores of injured. This is making many people who plan to attend the Olympics, and those involved with its security, a bit anxious, to say the least. (Edward Snowden is likely staying away from the event.) But Vladimir Putin is not scared.

Russian President Putin vowed to annihilate "terrorists" who would dare to carry out these cowardly acts. These uncompromising statements came New Year's Eve at his first public address on the bombings. "I am certain that we will fiercely and consistently continue the fight against terrorists until their complete annihilation", Putin said, according to Russian news agencies. He was wearing a long-sleeved shirt at the time, so it isn't clear just how serious he was.


Putin wearing shirt
Putin (a.k.a. "Hairy Nipples" to his friends) first became president when Boris Yeltsin stepped down and named him to the post exactly 14 years ago on New Year's Eve. Putin still has been unable to rid the country of the Islamist vermin in the Muslim provinces of the North Caucasus, (which brings to mind another president who also hasn't been able to rid the White House of Islamic vermin).

On Tuesday, Russian police detained scores of people in sweeps throughout Volgograd. So far there have been no indication that any of the detainees are connected to the attack, and nobody has claimed responsibility. However, MSNBC is poised to blame the Tea Party International for the carnage, and should they turn out to be incorrect, already have an apology in place.

People in Volgograd are scared, and rightfully so. Many are afraid to go to crowded areas and who can blame them?


There was a female suspect in the train station bombing the Russians were considering. Oksana Aslanova. She is, or was, a 26 year old Muslim woman who was married to a militant warlord, Mansur (pronounced Man Sewer) Velibekov. He was a Chechen Muslim who practiced his faith in an orthodox manner, which would have made Muhammad proud. (See the Koran). He was killed in the act of jihad against the unbelievers. This didn't stop Oksana from hooking up with Israpil Validshanov, another religious Muslim looking for a world caliphate. He too went to his 72 brown-eyed virgins and young boys, where the rivers of wine flow, and no Jews can be seen or found. Thus, Oksana outlived both of her husbands, and did so by the age of 26. 

But now the Russians aren't 100% certain that it was Oksana that killed all those innocent people, including one child. They couldn't find enough of the bomber to put all the pieces of the puzzle together, so to speak. Therefore, it's possible the "Sharia Widow" is still alive, and like Katnis Everdeen from the Hunger Games, will continue to play the role of hunter. But in Oksana's case, the hunted are we, the innocent.

Will these suicide bombings effect the Olympics? Probably. Just like the stupid choice of Sochi effects them. It's amazing how stupid the Olympic Committee can be. I'd say they are almost as stupid as the Nobel Peace Prize Committee.

My latest novel, Jihad Joe, is about Islamic terrorism and suspense.  In it I challenge the precepts of the religion through my protagonist, Zed Nill, a journalist, captured by terrorists and who is destined to be killed if the American President refuses to release three Gitmo prisoners.  Of course, American policy demands we never give in to terrorists, and for Zed, the clock is ticking.
