He was our first "Muslim Hero" last year, and he hasn't lost any of his edge--a big shout-out to courageous Iraqi legislator Iyad Jamal Al-Din (a Shi'a), who sometimes seems like a one-man army destroying the Islamists:

We all know in our hearts why Rudy lost. Consider:

Republicans admire and respect WORK; Dhimms admire sloth/welfare. Republicans despise sloth.

Republicans value a full, vigorous fight; Dhimms admire cleverness and shortcuts.

Republicans appreciate fairness; Dhimms hate fairness, and bend or run over the rules whenever they can.

Rudy openly wrote off THE FIRST FIVE STATES, because...well, because he COULD. And it would be to his TACTICAL ADVANTAGE.

I'm not a golfer, but I know what a mulligan is. Almost no-one has a problem with someone taking a mulligan in a friendly game. But imagine a bunch of Republicans were watching a big golf tournament, and one of the golfers declared he'd found a way to win by taking a mulligan on each of the first 5 holes...How would those Republican spectators feel about the "brilliant" strategy?

Republicans all honor "the man in the arena," as TR called him. Rudy's plan was to let the other men bloody each other in the arena for 5 fights, then charge in and slay the exhausted battlers. His plan was anathema to Republican sensibilities, hence his campaign's implosion. C'est tout.

An often insightful blogger, Judith Apter Klinghoffer, has taken it upon herself to berate those of us conservatives who do NOT want John McCain as president. According to Prof. Klinghoffer, the reason we don't share her enthusiasm is because we are more concerned to demonstrate our "pundit power" to destroy:

"For the opponents of John McCain the question is no longer who will best fight Islamism or what election outcome will convey best US resolve but what outcome will best demonstate the power of the new media as a ralleying force?

I wrote that Republicans are tired of governing. I wish to add now that members of the new media are not tired of bloviating. Unlike John McCain they do not put the country first, they put themselves or their narrow ideology first...You think the Clinton attacks on Obama are nasty, try listening to Rush, Ingram or their minion followers."

Sorry, folks, but I had to respond to this.

Professor Klinghoffer--

I do not know how long you've been active in Republican politics. I have for 25+ years. I first met John McCain in 1984, when I was a grunt campaign worker, and he came to provide some "celebrity" support for our man against [believe it]...John F'ing Kerry. (That was before McCain started playing kissy-chin with Kerry in the 1990's.)

To me and my buds, McCain was a beyond-reproach Repub until about 1997. Then he changed.

**He savaged the SwiftBoat heroes as "dishonest and dishonorable."
**He joined the anti-tobacco lynch mob.
**He took repeated swipes at "the religious right."
**He joined the anti-pharmaceutical lynch mob.
**He started caving in on gun control.
**He savaged the SwiftBoat heroes as "dishonest and dishonorable."
**He became the liberal news media's favorite Republican, and has stayed that way for 10 years.
**He started blasting conservatives and their supporters far more than he blasted, ohhhhhh, THE KLINTONS.
**He became the leading Republican senator to sabotage any effective response to illegal immigration.
**He served as a strategic asset for the Dhimms in the Senate, as when he created "the gang of 14" to hurt Bush's judicial nominees.
**Finally, he teamed up with a far-Left Dhimmicrat TO HACK AWAY AT MY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH.

Prof. Klinghoffer, you apparently support Sen. McCain. I'm sure you have your reasons. As for me, I'm sure his presidency would be a disaster for the Republican party, and more importantly, for our country. I've given you quite a long list of reasons, observed over a period of more than 10 years, why I do not support him. When all is said and done, Sen. McCain is an egomaniac (gaawwd, is he an egomaniac), short-tempered, and unreliable--not traits I like to see in a national leader.

Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham have been insightful commentators and conservative activists for ~20 years, long before the blogosphere was a twinkle in AlGore's brain. You do them, and all of us, a disservice to write off John McCain's critics as self-interested and deluded fantasists. We want what is best for our country, just as much as you do.


...In so few words. Perhaps the most brilliant paragraph of the millenium so far--from Charlotte Allen's WSJ review of "Encountering the Mystery," by Patriarch Bartholomew I of [sic] Constantinople:

On first reading, this exercise in fiddling while the new Rome burns seems pathetic, presenting a picture of a church leader so intimidated by his country's Islamic majority that he cannot speak up for his dwindling flock even as its members are murdered at his doorstep. Bartholomew's book presents an eerie mirror image of the concerns of aging, culturally exhausted, post-Christian Western Europe, happy to blather on at conferences about carbon emissions and diversity but unwilling to confront its own demographic crisis in the face of youthful, rapidly growing and culturally antagonistic Muslim populations. The suicide of the West meets the homicide of the East.

Some of us can recall a day not so long ago when an average third-grader, told by some other kid to keep his opinions to himself/"shut up," would naturally retort: "Why should I? It's A FREE COUNTRY." And then deliberately say something much more abrasive.

I feared that freedom-loving spirit had died in this age of tip-toeing political correctness. Most dispiriting was the outrageously cynical, cowardly and pathetic response of the US media a few years back when Islamist mobs roared threats of arson and murder against any news outlet that might offend them by, oh, showing an image of Muhammed. How did our MSM morons respond? By apologizing in advance to the roaring arsonists and murderers, and carefully censoring themselves. A true low point in US history.

Well, the defiant spirit of the third-grader has apparently lived on in some honorable corners of our land. What I particularly like is the little extra pop thrown in by these young journalists, just to make a little more free speech elbowroom for all the rest of us:

Oh, and note the ever-present Islamist acivist whining that "it has become part of the American tradition to only pick on Muslims:"

A new, cutting-edge, political TV show will challenge Islam with biting humor tomorrow night, placing the face of the prophet Muhammad onto a cookie and then having it eaten on camera.

"We're going to take a stand and say Muhammad's face is delicious," said Molotov Mitchell, the 28-year-old incendiary creator and host of "Flamethrower," a program described as a low-budget, gritty cross between the "The Daily Show," "The Colbert Report," and "The View" if Ann Coulter were the producer. "This is religious and culinary history in the making."

The theme of this week's episode is "All Things Islam," as panelists take on the faith of Muslims in a no-holds-barred fashion.

"Islam is not even a religion," Mitchell told WND from a location somewhere in Eastern North Carolina. "It's an ideology of 'might makes right' disguised as a religion. We're going to show that Allah was with us when we baked this cookie and ate it. Deal with it!"

Mitchell and his fellow panelists – all of whom are Christians in their 20s and whom he calls the next generation of conservatism – are trying to make the point that America is still a free country, and there's no need to cower in fear from Islamo-fascism. He laments the frequency of Islamic suicide bombings, giving a new twist to a famous line from "It's a Wonderful Life," by stating, "Every time a bell rings, a Muhammad gets his wives."

In recent years, European cartoons featuring Muhammad have caused a tidal wave of violent protests and death threats, as Islamic tradition bans depictions of the prophet.

"What were doing is exercising our freedom of speech and freedom of the press to the fullest in order to challenge a tyrannical, oppressive system that has doomed the cultures and countries of the Middle East for centuries," Mitchell told WND. "Now it's trying to invade our borders, and somebody has to speak up about it."

In its two previous episodes, "Flamethrower" has taken on subjects including "Is it ethical to kill abortionists?" and "Let's invade Mexico" – not to stay, but just to get rid of the drug cartels.

There's also a regular segment titled, "WWMD? (What Would Muhammad Do?)"

In it, cast members dress in traditional Muslim clothing and deliver "totally atrocious" real news items, recounting, says Mitchell, "what some jerk named Muhammad did this week."

"I'm not going to be hurt and insulted. I'm going to ask people to ignore this," said Iftekhar Hai, president of United Muslims of America Interfaith Alliance in South San Francisco. "They would dare not do it to any Jewish person, saying 'the Jews killed Jesus.' The Jewish lobby would slaughter the Christians if they did that." [Strange how this Islamist is quick to misuse the word "slaughter." I believe he means, "strongly protest." Real "slaughter" is what Islamists do.--J.O.]

"I don't think this is part of the American character," Hai added, "but it has become part of the American tradition to only pick on Muslims."

Mitchell says politics is the driving force of his show, saying, "The [Christian] church really doesn't seem to get it when it comes to politics. The church likes to ask, 'What would Jesus do?' But it often suggests Jesus would hug somebody for every situation, and that's not what Jesus would do. I'd rather ask, 'What would George Washington do?'"

A video teaser for the program offers a sample exchange between Mitchell and Fox News host Alan Colmes.

"Muhammad murdered people and he married a 9-year-old. That makes him a murdering pedophile," said Mitchell. "I don't think that we should burn the Quran. I'm a Christian environmentalist. We should put that thing to use. I mean, at least get some toilet paper out of it."

"Your kind of attitude is a really despicable attitude," responded Colmes.

'Flamethrower' features a young cast describing itself as the next generation of conservatism

Mitchell's 27-year-old wife says she's "totally fine" with the concept of "Flamethrower."

"At first, I was a little scared," she admitted. "But I'm a Christian, and we shouldn't fear to lose our lives. We're in America, and we have a free voice here, and we want it to stay that way."

The hour-long show airs Friday nights on Faith TV on the Sky Angel Network, channel 9708, at 7 p.m. Eastern, and the complete cookie segment is expected to be posted on the video-sharing site YouTube immediately after tomorrow night's airing.

Mitchell says the show has already been recorded, so it would pointless for any would-be assassin to target him.

"Even if you kill us, the cookie will still be eaten on the air," he said.

Just imagine, as you read this little excerpt from yesterday's briefing by Gen. Bergner in Iraq: What would have Ernie Pyle done with these stories?

Our media have gone beyond bias, to providing aid and comfort to the enemy. Only from mil-bloggers like Yon, Roggio and Totten will we get the truth.

"Coalition and Iraqi security forces are also targeted by these suicide bombers that have been unleashed by al-Qaeda. And it’s been coalition and Iraqi security forces [that] have successfully intervened in a number of instances to keep suicide terrorists from reaching their targets. In the process, these brave troops and Iraqi security forces are exposed to extraordinary risks. The following video clip is an example of that tough fight our soldiers are engaged in. Before showing it, I want to note that no coalition forces were killed or injured as a result of the suicide blast that you’ll see.

During a recent operation, coalition forces targeted an al-Qaeda in Iraq leader associated with a terrorist group north of Baghdad. During that operation, a terrorist emerged from the building and appeared to be holding something in his hands. When he continued to move toward our forces, he was engaged with small arms fire which detonated a suicide vest he was wearing. The second portion of the video of the same objective shows the ground force which was then engaged from inside the building. Another terrorist, who was armed with explosives, caused a second explosion on the other side of the building. In the first video you saw him come out of the building. In the second one here, he will be on the top side of the building there by the red dot. And as coalition forces are being engaged by small arms and maneuvering, he sets off the second suicide vest.

Again, I want to emphasize that none of our forces were killed or injured in these engagements. During this operation, our forces were engaged with small arms fire by another terrorist. Coalition forces returned fire and killed the attacker who was wearing the suicide vest you see here in this photograph. And in a separate operation, coalition forces killed another suicide terrorist equipped with a dual-initiation system which you can see could be fired either by a trigger device on…near his hand or one that was mounted near his belt as is shown in this photograph. These are just two of the many suicide bombers who have been interdicted before they could reach their targets thanks to the courage and tough fighting that our soldiers and the Iraqi security forces continue to undertake. Even amidst this barbaric violence or perhaps, because of it, brave Iraqi citizens are stepping forward from all communities to serve their country."

No, it's not like Hollywood could make a stirring film--hell, a documentary--out of this material, either. Riiiiiiight.

"It's amazing what you can't do...especially when you don't want to do it." When the MSM morons pretend they are not trying to make us lose in Iraq, you are a fool unless you disbelieve them.

Words fail me. Except these four:

Where are the feminists?



And notice the spine-chilling restrained, even tone from the woman NY Times journalist writing about these savages, who are just a half-step above head-hunters and cannibals.

Oh, and I love how the ELEMENTARY-SCHOOL CLASSROOM serves double-duty as a clit-slashing chamber. Verily, the shariah is a gift that keeps on giving.

We need to understand that Islam-as-religion has historically served as a carrier, like an infected patient, of a bizarre 7th-century Arabian tribal culture that should have been stamped out about the time Colombus discovered America. Unless and until this inhuman culture is decisively ripped out of the religion, and relegated to the modern status of those head-hunting and cannabalistic tribes, the religion will be doomed to an isolated and self-consuming future, much like a typhus or Ebola-infected patient.

The sooner the ripping-out begins, the fewer needless deaths and maimings we will see.

Can We Stop YET ANOTHER Islamist Crime Against Human History?

To add to the sickeningly long list that stretches from the torching of the Alexandria Library to the demolition of the Ayodhya Temple to the smashing of Joseph's Tomb to the dynamiting of the Bamyan Buddhas and even the obliteration of Muhammed's birthplace, the Islamists have picked yet another revered ancient site to destroy. The Tomb of Cyrus the Great in Pasargad is set to become the bottom of a new Islamic lake, thus serving to blot out the tangible evidence of an historically greater, and more humane non-Muslim Persia:

A young Iranian, code-named "Cyrus," who has secretly been in contact with the Omedia editorial board for several months, directed our attention to an interesting campaign related to the Persian king who his code name was based on.

The young man claims the ayatollah regime in Iran is endeavoring to sever the link between the Persian people and its historic heritage through measures including the destruction of archaeological sites that are significant to this heritage.
The Iranian government is in the final stages of constructing a dam in the country's south that will submerge the archaeological sites of Pasargad and Persopolis – the ancient capital of the Persian Empire. The site, which is considered exceptional in terms of its archaeological wealth and historical importance, houses the tomb of the Persian King Cyrus. It was Cyrus who liberated Babylonian Jewry from their exile in the famous Declaration of Cyrus (which is mentioned in the book of Ezra in both Hebrew and Aramaic).

In response to the plan to submerge this historic site, in the process covering up the treasures of the past – including Cyrus' tomb – a group of Iranian academics established the Pasargad Heritage Foundation, a nonprofit organization that undertook an international campaign to salvage the important site. On the foundation's website they observe Cyrus Day (on October 29) and are asking people to sign an international petition calling for worldwide intervention, including the involvement of UN agencies like UNESCO, in order to "halt this inhuman cruelty to the extant treasures of human culture."

I believe it was Arthur Koestler who said that the final struggle would pit the Communists versus the ex-Communists. [And he was right!! Gorbachev vs. Yeltsin!!] Now a new kind of struggle is upon us, much less cerebral and much more atavistic and primal. I have concluded that the true dividing line of this struggle is historical truth, and the archeological "artifacts" that evidence it.

OUR final struggle will be between those who love archeology and those who hate it.

You read it here first.

He's been in the news much lately, as he engineered the firing of a brilliant anti-jihadist expert at the Pentagon, Stephen Coughlin. Why wd a patriotic AMERICAN take offense to educating our military to the threats from Islamism? Hmmmmmmmm...:

Senior Advisor to Deputy Secretary Focuses on Relationship Building
By Donna Miles
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Oct. 15, 2007 – If Hesham Islam’s life story was translated into a screenplay -- and it’s got all the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster -- the director would be hard-pressed to come up with a more compelling chain of events landing him as a top advisor to the deputy defense secretary.

The movie would open with Islam as a young boy growing up in Cairo, Egypt, huddling in terror as Israeli bombs came raining down, demolishing much of the building around him and his family.

Next would be the scene of the teenager who moves to Iraq when his Egyptian naval officer father is transferred to help establish the Arabian Gulf naval academy Islam would later attend.

Raised in Nasser's Egypt...Supposedly victimized by those Jooooooooos, as "Israeli bombs" demlished his home (did the IDF really bomb neighborhoods in Cairo?)...Then moved to Ba'athist Iraq...Is this really a natural life-trajectory for a pro-freedom Muslim?

The Rosenbergs were electrocuted...The Walker spies got life...Jonathan Pollard got life...Perhaps Mr. Islam is hiding in plain sight?

He ain't my pick, but with this new ad he has hit the only grand-slam homerun of the season so far...Well done, Mayah!!
