Get your duct tape ready, 'cause this one will make your head explode...

2008 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is expanding her complaint about foreign companies owning U.S. ports - and now says a 1999 deal to let a Chinese company takeover the ports at each end of the Panama Canal was a mistake.

Speaking at the 92nd Street YMCA in Manhattan yesterday, Clinton told the Jewish Community Relations Council: "There are those who say we can't [prevent foreign governments from operating U.S. ports] because look what happened in the last 20 years ... You know, we have the Chinese running the Panama Canal. We have other government-controlled entities controlling our ports."

According to the New York Observer, she then declared: "Well, just because it's been happening doesn't mean we should let it continue."

Mrs. Clinton neglected to mention, however, that it was her husband who approved the deal in question, when the Chinese company, Hutchison Whampoa, sought to buy the Panama Canal's ports.

I guess she was for it before she was against it?

My head hurts...

THE former Melbourne taxi driver convicted this week of receiving cash from al-Qaeda has told of his meetings with Osama bin Laden, and how the world's most-wanted man had a softer side.

"You know, he didn't mind being hugged, but kisses he didn't like," says Joseph "Jihad Jack" Thomas, the 32-year-old father of three who trained under the al-Qaeda leader in Afghanistan just months before the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on Washington and New York.

Thomas, who was also found guilty of passport fraud but acquitted of two other terrorism-related charges, was asked for his impression of bin Laden during an interview on ABC's Four Corners last night.

The Muslim convert says bin Laden is "very polite, and humble and shy . . . and he was just, seemed to float, really float across the floor".

Well, isn't that just lovely? OBL, the huggable, nice guy mass-murderer. Good grief.

There is no word on kidnapped journalist Jill Carroll, and yesterday was the deadline set by terrorists for her to be murdered.

Carroll has been missing for almost two months, since Janurary 7th, and was last seen in a tape released on Al-Rai on February 9th.

The group calling themselves the Revenge Brigades are claiming responsibility for her kidnapping, and have demanded the release of all women detainees in Iraq.

Iraqi forces have searched for her; "We are watching the situation closely," said an Iraqi Interior Ministry official.

President Bush, the Committee to Protect Journalists and even Hamas have all called for Carroll to be released.

I hate to say it, but I'm not holding my breath for these scum to release Carroll. They will use her as a carrot for as long as they think she is useful, and then they will dispose of her.

It seems that no good deed goes unpunished when dealing with terrorists; for all the good work and humanitarian efforts Carroll put herself into, she will no doubt still be slaughtered.

My sympathies to her family.
Don Knotts passed away yesterday at the ripe old age of 81.

I have always enjoyed watching old reruns of The Andy Griffith Show, and Knotts was in more Disney movies than I could name offhand.

I'm sure that Deputy Fife will be missed!

Ahmadinejad is at it again...The Iranian dictator blamed the US and Israel for the destruction of the Shiite's golden dome in Iraq, calling it the work of "defeated Zionists and occupiers."

Huh? What did I miss? Did I wake up in an alternate universe today?

"They invade the shrine and bomb there because they oppose God and justice," Ahmadinejad said, alluding to the U.S.-led multinational forces in Iraq.

"These passive activities are the acts of a group of defeated Zionists and occupiers who intended to hit our emotions," he said in a speech that was broadcast on state television. Addressing the United States, he added: "You have to know that such an act will not save you from the anger of Muslim nations."

OK, so we wanted to set off the sectarian attacks?

President Bush, Jordan's King Abdullah II, Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora, Kuwait's Sheik Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah all condemned the bombing.

But, as usual, the majority of Islamic clerics crammed their proverbial foot in their mouths.

"We cannot imagine that the Iraqi Sunnis did this," said the influential Sunni cleric Sheik Youssef al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian who lives in Qatar. "No one benefits from such acts other than the U.S. occupation and the lurking Zionist enemy."

Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr blamed the US and Iraqi government.

"If responsibility is not in the hands of the Iraqi government, then I consider the responsibility for this event lies with the occupation forces which should either leave immediately or according to a timetable."

I swear I just want to bang my head into a wall...

These pictures are from a marijuana crop hidden in Tennessee. This grow was underneath a house in a secret cave. The entrance was through a secret hydraulic door in the garage that led to a concrete ramp that went about 50 yards into the ground leading to a cave. Inside the cave was living quarters and a secret escape hatch that led through a tunnel that exited via another hydraulic door that opened up a rock on the outside of the house. It is extremely elaborate set up that allowed them to harvest every 60 days, resulting in multi-million dollar sales.

Just imagine if these guys had put half as much effort into doing something legitimate!

Saddam has been at it again...

He looks TOTALLY rational, don't you think?

I think the judges in this case have been way too indulgent with him! If it were me (and unfortunately it isn't) I'd warn him that one more outburst would result in him being removed and tried in absentia, and then I'd follow through on it!

No, Saddam, damn YOUR moustache!

An Iowa man who is up on seperate charges for child pornography is now on trial for attempting to kidnapp his own wife.

One of the big pieces of evidence the procecutors are bringing to the table is the "Contract of Wifely Expectations" that Travis Frey expected his wife to follow.

Say you're on the jury and read this. Is there ANY way you don't convict this sicko?

Mutha Sheehan is going to hold an anti-war concert on the third anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.

The concert will be called, "Bring 'Em Home Now!" and will be held at the Hammerstein Ballrom in New York.

It will headline REM, and include Rufus Wainwright and Brighteyes, Steve Earle, Peaches, and Devendra Banhart. Also scheduled is Chuck Fischerspooner.

"It is impossible not react to the current state of affairs through personal action and artistic production," said Casey Spooner of Fischerspooner in a statement.

Sheehan expects that more bands will be added.

Yeah, right. The funniest thing about this is that every single performer she has booked right now are has-beens.

Guess the music industry DID learn something from the Dixie Chicks debacle. Not a single popular band will touch this!

Sheehan will follow the concert with a 15 stop speaking tour featuring her and a few other authors.

Look out, all you college kids!

Mohammed El-Mezain, a man Hamas has named its leader in the US, helped raise $500,ooo to build a new mosque in Baton Rouge, LA.

Federal authorities instead suspect that most of the money was channeled to Hamas overseas.

El-Mezain also coordinates fund raising for a charity called KindHearts, based in Ohio, which is under investigation by the US Treasury Department for its links to terrorism.

A Treasury Department announcement said,
"only a small amount" of the money raised "was to be retained locally and the vast majority was to be sent to Hamas overseas."

As we all (should) know, Hamas is responsible for more than 100 homicide bombings and rocket attacks against Israel. Is anyone else a little worried that they will be forming the next Palestinian government shortly?

But back to the point. El-Mezain was indicted in 2004 for his involvement in a charity out of Dallas that has allegedly sent $12.4 MILLION dollars to Hamas.

Looks like he's up to his old tricks.

The president of the new Islamic Center at the time of the speech, Imam Jehad Mahmoud, told the Baton Rouge paper the federal government's accusation is "absolutely irresponsible. It's an utter lie."

Really? Then a quick look at the books should clear this nonsense up right away...

Mahmoud claimed the money stayed in Baton Rouge, with the exception of $4,000 paid to El-Mezain for his expenses.

Then Mahmoud said that they also received money for Hurricane Katrina relief.

But he called the Treasury Departments accusation a "deliberate attack on the Muslim minority in America."

"It bolsters the belief for some people that we are targeted simply because we are Muslims," he told the Baton Rouge newspaper.

Noooo... You're being targeted because you are giving money to Hamas!

Hamas knows El-Mezain by another name: Khaled Mashal, and people with aliases, they have nothing to hide...

Oh, Hamas posted a graphic showing the star of David consumed by a nuclear blast. And, since winning the election, they posted two 'parting messages' by homicide bombers, vowing that Hamas would "drink the blood of Jews until they leave the Muslim countries."

Deep Breath...Religion of peace... Religion of peace... Religion of peace...

Nope. Its not working.

The Hamas 'Covenant' declares that all of the Holy Land, including Israel is Islamic land that can never be surrendered to non-Muslims.

Its introduction quotes "martyr" Imam Hassan al-Banna, who said, "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it."

Article 13 says, "Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement. ... There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad."

I'm afraid we've got some hard(er) days ahead...
Old Glory has decided she's had enough and decided to take Billy Zane out for herself...

Seriously, Zane should be ashamed of himself for releasing this photograph. Personally, I don't think our flag should be used as a prop at all. But after taking part in a movie like, Iraq: Valley of the Wolves, and then having the audacity to wrap himself in the red, white, and blue, Zane has skyrocketed to the top of my "Prime Canidates For Horsewhipping" list.

Yahoo! is banning the use of allah in email names - even if the letters are included within another name.

This was uncovered by Reg reader Ed Callahan whose mother Linda Callahan was trying to sign up for a Verizon email address. She could not get it to accept her surname.

Enquiries to Verizon revealed that a partnership with Yahoo! was to blame. Yahoo! will not accept any identies which include the letters "allah".

Nor will Yahoo! accept yahoo, osama or binladen. But it will accept god, messiah, jesus, jehova, buddah, satan and both priest and pedophile.

Ed Callahan told us: "On one level this is just silliness. But we have a war on terrorism and it's migrating to be a war on Muslims - this just shows the confusion there is between the two and how pervasive this is."

The Callahans are still waiting to hear back from Yahoo!

A spokesman for Yahoo! UK said: "This sounds like a glitch. But we will get back to Ed and Lindy Callahan with a full answer as soon as possible." .

I wonder if Yahoo! will accept Mohammedchildmolesterbombhead?

That'd be a little too long to type out, though.

Well, we'll probably have to wait until his trial is over for this film to come out.

I hear it got good reviews, though.

Religion of Peace
Religion of Peace
Religion of Peace
Religion of Peace
Religion of Peace...

I don't belive it no matter how many times I hear it.
Here's a picture that's worth a thousand words...

'Religion of Peace', huh?
Hugo Chavez pulled another nutty last week, warning Condoleeza Rice," Don't mess with me, girl."

Rice incurred the mighty wrath of Chavez after calling him a , "challenge to democracy" in South America.

"She messed with me again," he said in his weekly "Hello President" television show, deliberately mangling her name as "Condolences." "Don't mess with me, girl."

US-Venezuelan relations have gone downhill since Chavez was elected seven years ago. He frequently accuses Washington of plotting against him, and has charged it backed an aborted coup in 2002.

Relations hit a new low earlier this month when Caracas expelled a US naval attache on espionage charges, prompting Washington to retaliate by kicking a Venezuelan diplomat out of the United States.

And, with the constant stream of has-been and nut-jobs going down to Venezuela to stroke his ego, why shouldn't Chavez be a little bumptious?

All the more reason to prosecute Belafonte, Sheehan and their sort. They are CLEARLY doing more harm than good.

A few rejected billboards.
Here's one to keep an eye on. On April 27th, high school students may take part in a "Day of Truth" to express their Christian views about homosexuality. They will wear tee-shirts with a day of truth logo; a counter to the homosexual "Day of silence" that will take place in high schools on April 26th.

The ADF (Alliance Defense Fund) offers assistance to students who initiate the "Day of Truth" at their schools.

"In the past, students who have attempted to speak against the homosexual agenda have been censored or in some cases punished for their beliefs," Sears explained. "It is important for students to stand up for their First Amendments right to hear and speak the Truth."

In previous years, students had been allowed to participate in the day of silence, but students who wished to participate in the day of truth had punitive actions taken against them, either for discrimination or under the so-called separation of church and state.

"The First Amendment allows for open discussion," Sears argued. "Allowing students to have a 'Day of Silence' without allowing them to have a 'Day of Truth' limits free speech and the free exchange of ideas, which then limits their ability to make informed decisions. Placing limits on student free speech ultimately places limits on learning."

After classes adjourn, students will make the following announcement:

I am speaking the Truth to break the silence. Silence isn't freedom. It's a constraint. Truth tolerates open discussion, because the Truth emerges when healthy discourse is allowed. By proclaiming the Truth in love, hurts will be halted, hearts will be healed, and lives will be saved.

I say, go for it! People should not be afraid to be labeled as hate-mongers for the peaceful discourse of their opinions. Just this week in Moscow, the city voted down a gay pride march due to fears of violence from the Muslim community.

Earlier this week Chief Mufti Talgat Tadzhuddin warned that Russia's Muslims would stage violent protests if the march went ahead. "If they come out on to the streets anyway they should be flogged. Any normal person would do that - Muslims and Orthodox Christians alike ... [The protests] might be even more intense than protests abroad against those controversial cartoons."

The cleric said the Koran taught that homosexuals should be killed because their lifestyle spells the extinction of the human race and said that gays had no human rights.

We should consider ourselves blessed that here in America, both sides are free to present their arguments in a peaceful fashion, with little fear of being flogged or some other such retribution.

No matter how much I may personally disagree with the gay 'lifestyle', I'm not going to go out and kill a homosexual.

Reporter Caught Clueless on Non-Cheney News

The press has spent so much time this week obsessing over Dick Cheney's hunting accident that some reporters have been rendered completely oblivious to other important news developments.

After delivering yet another breathless report on Cheneygate Thursday morning, usually reliable ABC Radio News reporter Ann Compton was caught clueless about the takeover of six major U.S. ports by a Dubai company based in the United Arab Emirates - a country said to have ties to terrorism.

Compton's exchange with WABC Radio's John Gambling went like this:

GAMBLNG: What else [besides Cheneygate] is being talked about in the White House?

COMPTON: Absolutely nothing. This has sucked the oxygen out of President Bush's trip yesterday. He went all the way to the Wendy's hamburger headquarters in Ohio to talk about health care. . . . . Is that on the front page of any paper today? I did not do a single spot on it yesterday . . . .

COMPTON: [Cheneygate] really has dominated everything else . . . It is a fascinating story and one that ABC has reported very, very vigorously at the ground level and I think very responsibly.

GAMBLING: Ann, let me ask you a question. Is anybody talking about this story . . . about the Dubai Ports World Corporation running our major ports in the United States? You know anything about that?

COMPTON: Whooops. [Nervous laughter]

GAMBLING: The reason I ask you is exactly what you just finished talking about - sucking the oxygen out of the White House and Washington press corps . . . . This is like letting Saudi Arabia do security in our airports. And I think that Washington reporters need to jump on this thing.

COMPTON: Well, send me a quick email, John. It sounds like something I need to see.

Whenever I need a good laugh, I just think about the fact that someone is listening to Air America, and taking Al Franken very seriously.

That's right. That's what the main stream media and the 'tolerant' left want you to do.

Is it OK to put up with the most barbaric of behavior because we don't want to denounce Islam as an inherently violent religion? Is a cartoon more blasphemous than the murder of a bound and defenseless hostage by masked cowards?

I don't think so.

Al-Jazzera has announced a new sitcom to be seen starting this spring...

It's guaranteed to be a hit!
I saw this picture and though that it is an appropriate warning to the main stream media in general.
In Carrollton, Ill. yesterday, a toddler coasted away in his mom's minivan.

She decided to leave the almost two year old in the van with the engine running while she ran into a convenience store. The baby worked his way into the driver's seat and coasted across the street and into the side of a house.
No one was hurt.

Although I probably wouldn't think of my two year old driving my car away, I wouldn't leave him in there, especially with the engine running! I'd be afraid that someone would steal the car with him in it!

We all know that VP Dick Cheney is a real bad dude.

Since shooting a lawyer, however, the press and therefore the empty heads in Hollywood have noticed, too.

Hoping to cash in on the true story of his trigger-happy bloodbath, Universal Studios has announced that it has acquired the rights to produce a movie about the incident.

More Cartoon Nonsense From the 'Religion of Peace'...

In the city of Peshwar 50,000 violent protestors from the 'religion of peace' hit the streets Wendsday, torching a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant (I bet PETA is thrilled.) and destroyed buses run by a North Korean company.

In Lahore, a diplomatic enclave was stormed, and at least two people were shot and killed throughout the city.

It seems that the terrorist have upped the ante, threatening to execute another hostage:

I saw this cartoon and thought it was rather funny.

Here's my view on the wire tapping.

Get over it. The President isn't tapping you or your Uncle Milt. The FISA laws give the president the right to listen in on phone conversation to or from foreign soil. If you're getting a call from some dude in Syria, then we probably SHOULD be watching (and listening in on) you.

And I can't tell you how many times I've been at home, sitting around waiting for my pizza to be delivered when Al-Qaida calls just to see what's up.

I know it's a little late, but I thought this was a sweet picture for Valentine's Day.

And, no, this isn't a pic of my husband and I...
Hello, everybody! This is the first post of NeoCon Command Center!

As I am new to Blogger, I will hopefully improve in my ability to post, ect.

So... Here goes nothing!
