Sheehan Arrested


More martyring moments from our favorite Mom of Martyrdom, i.e. Martyrmom.

Liveblogging the State of the Union

Word is the Mother of All Moonbats will be on hand.

Nice to see that young, vibrant and CONSERVATIVE SCOTUS. Alito drinking it all in. Congratulations, Justice Alito.

Whoah, Momma Moonbat detained!!!! FOX reporting. She tried to unfurl a banner. Such a heroine.

How many people did Sheila Jackson Lee trample to get her photo op with the President? Attention whore.

Democrats uncharacteristically respectful. Probably will try to impeach him tomorrow.

Kind words for Coretta Scott King. RIP.

Strong words against protectionism and isolationism. 9/11 reference. Democracy as a counterweight to terrorism. "We will act boldly in Freedom's cause". Talks about freedom in Burma, Iran and Syria. Islam a "noble faith" perverted by a few. Take the fight to them. Another reference to 'radical Islam'.

"We will never surrender to evil". References to Iraq and Afghanistan. Progress of a new democracy in Iraq. Successes against insurgent forces. "We are winning" (applause)

Troop withdrawals to be made by miliotary commanders, NOT by politicians in Wasghington. (applause). Chastises defeatism of some. "Second guessing is not a strategy." Cant abandon Iraqi allies.

Props to Soldiers. Applause for the family of a fallen soldier in the gallery. Very moving.

Fighting terrorism by promoting democracy. Reference to Hamas. Disarm. Recognize Israel and work for lasting peace.

Iran "sponsors terrorists" Must not permit Iranian regime to gain nuclear weapons. Forceful rhetoric. Talks directly to Iranian people.

Must fight terrorism on the home front. Those working for Homeland Security desserve our support, our thanks. They need the tools. Reauthorize the Patriot Act.

Asserting his authority to use the surveillance powers so well reported. We will not wait to be hit again (loud applause)

Hillary looks bored again. This must be hard for her. Lord knows her husband wasn't.

Support for immigrants. Doubt the fence will be addressed. :(

Push to make tax cuts permanent. Guess which side is clapping?

Cutting spending? Who isnt skeptical. Line item veto rears its head again. Limit entitlement spending.

Cute moment - Congress did not act on my Social Security plan last year. Collective hooray from Dems. Not funny to W. The system is going bankrupt. Get it solved!

Always kinda creepy to me how the Supremes show no reaction.

Controlling health care costs - tax breaks, portability, pass medical liability reform.

America is Addicted to Oil. Advanced Energy Plan for alternative sources of energy. I hope we can all agree on this one.

Ethanol???? Ugggh. Please.

I wish we would have talked about remoiving our dependence on ME oil about 4 decades ago.

American Competitiveness Initiative. Better education in math and science. More $$$ to science. Tax credit for research.

All this talk about math. America's children will hate this president.

The character of our country has improved. More personal responsibilty, etc. Activist courts which attempt to redefine marriage. Allusions to abortion. Alito and Roberts announced. Supremes get up and clap!!!!!!

Warnings about cloning. My hopes for making a mini-me take a hit.

Talk about being there for kids. Time for a bathroom break.

If it keeps on rainin, Bush wont let levee break.

End the waiting list for AIDS America. End the stigma of AIDS. Thats so, 1992.

Good speech. Very few original proposals. Tough on Iran. Tough on Hamas. Strong defense of his NSA programs. On MSNBC, Jon Meacham of Newsweek was taken by his emphasis on domestic issues. Also, calls him a 'hawkish Woodrow Wilson'. Interesting analogy.

Always funny to see the Dimocrats so star struck while W is working the room. Reps were just as bad, I know, when it was WJC. But ya gotta admit it looks silly.

The Triumph of Alito

The Left has spent months gloating about public opinion polls showing a weakened President. Emboldened by a variety of Republican missteps, the MSM barrage of bad news on Iraq and the botched Miers nomination, it appeared the Left would lead a war that hadn't been seen on the hill since the Bork fiasco. Well, a funny thing happened on the way to the forum. {Remove tablets. Drop into container of water} And listen for fizzle.

The Left's base is now firmly entrenched in the blogosphere. The hyper typers at Kos and the like are what shape the movements talking points. Fortunate for Republicans, these sycophants are not about ideas and concepts but are about personalities and nihilism. Alito's name came up at a time when moonbats had Libby, Delay, Rove and lastly Abramoff, in their crosshairs. The feeding frenzy these events inspired allowed Alito to coast to the hearings. His performance in front of the Judiciary Committee along with the embarrassing drivel from Kennedy and Biden only served to solidify his approval.

So, next time you see a Lefty, shake his hand. Remind him that in 10 years nobody will remember the names Libby, Delay, Rove and Abramoff. Nobody will know what Fitzmas was. A chimp will once again be a zoo animal. In 10 years, Alito will still be warming up in shaping the Law of this Land. And in a 100 years, law students will be reading Alito's opinions in their case books.

The Al Qaeda Sermons

Melanie Phillips wonders aloud how Great Britain could allow Al Qaeda to 'preach' from the pulpit without oversight. Her answer is not surprising.

Amazing how the same forces which went so far to separate poor Winnie from his Piglet also mandates that convicted terrorists be allowed to peaceably assemble without oversight.

Dhimmi Capitulation or Copulation


To paraphrase, "I am sorry we offended. Now please don't lop off our heads."


Dhimmi Watch comments on reprisals against two Danish workers in Saudi Arabia.


"I've borrowed Monica's knee pads. Let me use them for Allah."

Excellent commentary on Infidel Bloggers Alliance and GOP Bloggers.

...and then there is light...

Is He Kidding?

This is a great footing for peace between Israel and the Palestinians;

Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz told the Israeli cabinet on Sunday that since Hamas won a sweeping victory in last Wednesday’s PA parliamentary election, the extreme Islamic terror group was acting “responsibly.”

Mofaz also said that in the short term, he thinks Hamas will refrain from terror attacks.

He added that it was likely that the Hamas will also attempt to block the Islamic Jihad from carrying out terrorist attacks against Israel. Islamic Jihad, trying to portray itself as more radical than Hamas, boycotted last week’s election. They claimed that the elections were based on the Oslo accords and playied into the hands of the United States.

Shortly after making his comments about the Hamas, Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar said from Gaza that Israel must change its flag. "Israel must remove the two blue stripes from its national flag", said Zahar. “The stripes on the flag are symbols of occupation. They signify Israel's borders stretching from the River Euphrates to the River Nile."

What do you expect from a group that says, "The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees."


Heard at the Water Cooler

Came across a very interesting blog called End Wahhabism! Give it a peak.

Where o where has my pension gone? A scandal which should dwarf Enron. Liberal cronyism. (requires registration)

A Press Secretary with Testicles and a Massachusettes Yodeler

Gotta love this;

Q: Can I also ask you, on Senator Kerry's comments, what is your reaction to the filibuster call by Senator Kerry, on Judge Alito?

MR. McCLELLAN: On his call yesterday? It was a pretty historic day. This was the first time ever that a Senator has called for a filibuster from the slopes of Davos, Switzerland. I think even for a Senator, it takes some pretty serious yodeling to call for a filibuster from a five-star ski resort in the Swiss Alps. (Laughter.)

If Only Our President Were This Trustworthy

The always inimitable insights of Juan Cole lead us on a journey of who to trust in this world. The answer, he finds has been there all along, Hamas of course.

Despite Hamas' founding position that the Israeli state is illegitimate, violence is not foreordained. A Hamas leader, Mahmoud Zahar, told the Associated Press that his party would continue what he called its year-old "truce" if Israel did the same.

The Wonderful Artwork Islam has Inspired

Hamas Charter

Neanderthal is too kind a description and Chaka WAS a Cro-Mangnon of Peace but I couldn't resist the image. Remember the Hamas Charter next time you hear that stupid peanut farmer open his piehole.

"Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious...The Movement is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this vast Arab and Islamic world, until the enemy is vanquished and Allah’s victory is realised...The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine. The Muslim Brotherhood Movement is a universal organization which constitutes the largest Islamic movement in modern times...It strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine, for under the wing of Islam followers of all religions can coexist in security and safety where their lives, possessions and rights are concerned...The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the links in the chain of the struggle against the Zionist invaders. It goes back to 1939, to the emergence of the martyr Izz al-Din al Kassam and his brethren the fighters, members of Muslim Brotherhood. It goes on to reach out and become one with another chain that includes the struggle of the Palestinians and Muslim Brotherhood in the 1948 war and the Jihad operations of the Muslim Brotherhood in 1968 and after...The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: ‘The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him...’ (emphasis mine)
