After weeks of shamelessly shilling for a broken down phony lamestream Republican, Newsmax has wound up with egg on its face with the humiliating loss of Bill McCollum to Rick Scott. With a motley crew of FL coat-holders and clueless national figures (Et tu, Michael Reagan?) united to drag him across the finish line, Mr. McCollum was stymied by a man who actually earned money in the private sector for his entire adult life, and by voters who didn't buy the preposterous idea that Bill "I was against the AZ immigration law before I was for it" McCollum, a man whose only job "outside" of government was as a lobbyist, was a principled conservative.

The fact is, with the Scott victory, Florida is approaching a "perfect storm" favoring the GOP in November. The dynamic between Marco Rubio, Rick Scott, their energized conservative voters and the down-ballot races threatens to create an unprecedented statewide debacle for Florida dhimms! (and look for Newsmax to develop amnesia about its gag-reflex shilling and end up adoring Rick Scott).

You read it here first! [10:30 EST]

(BTW, my county went for Rick Scott by 53-38, heheh.)

Not to say, "I told you so," but it appears that Rifqa Bary's Ohio legal team has pulled the rabbit out of the hat, and secured her from her parents' custody forever. Tom Trento, of the Florida Security Council, has posted 2 info-packed and insightful video interviews with Rifqa's lead attorney, Kort Gatterdam, here and here.

Rifqa's lawyers were repeatedly and viciously attacked in the past year by well-meaning Net kibbitzers who should have known better and should have acted like responsible adults. I firmly and patiently advised those parties that their hysterics were in no way helpful to Rifqa, but could only encourage her enemies. At the end of the day, we see that was exactly the case, as recounted by Mr. Gatterdam.

At 1:40 of the 2d part of the interview, Mr. G. gives the BOTTOM bottom-line, as yours truly wrote in almost the exact same words six months ago:

I could have presented six days of apostasy and shariah law, but if on the 7th day the judge said “Rifqa, you lose,” then how have I helped Rifqa? My goal was to get the result for her, however we need to do it, within the bounds of the law.”

Amen to that, Brother Gatterdam!

I swear, I must have heard for 20 years how "modern" and "progressive" and "well-educated" and oh-so-ready-for-statehood the Balesdinian Arabs are...Now they've taken their Israeli-constructed turnkey society in Gaza, and made it into a by-God duplicate of one of the great scenes of one of the great movies ever made. First, the news story from Arutz Sheva:

No Lights in Gaza; Fatah and Hamas Trade Blame
Av 27, 5770, 07 August 10 10:00
by Hillel Fendel

(Israelnationalnews.com) Gaza's power station is down once again, and once again, Fatah and Hamas trade accusations.

It seems to be a semi-monthly occurrence. It happened in April, then again in June, and now once more: Gaza's only power station, providing a third of the area's electricity to two-thirds of its residents, stopped its generators on Saturday. As in the past, the stoppage is due to a dispute between Hamas, the terrorist organization that runs Gaza, and Fatah, which runs the Judea-Samaria part of the Palestinian Authority.

Now, just click on the embed above to see what I mean! (I've thoughtfully provided the key dialogue, from 0:52 50 2:35:):

Anthony Quinn: He insulted me.

Peter O’Toole: Sherif Ali said that the telephones are in the care of the Howeitat, and they have ceased to work. And this is true, Auda.

Quinn: They will not work because they are given no electricity. The electricity is in the care of the Harith.

O’Toole: If you answer, there will be bloodshed.

Omar Sharif: You speak to me of bloodshed?...I ask pardon of Auda Abu Tayi.

Quinn: Humbly? Humbly, Harith?

Sharif: Yes, humbly.

Quinn: This is a new trick.

O’Toole: Why is there no electricity?

Metrosexual sheikh: I have been to that electrical house, Lawrence. There are three large machines.

Memebr of audience: He means generators!

Metro. Sheikh: So. One of them is burning. They are of an incredible size, but helpless.

Koranic scholar: It is so of all machines.

Other sheikh: Let them burn. What need of telephones?

O’Toole: The need is absolute.

Sharif: Then we need the English engineers.

O’Toole: No. Take English engineers and you take English government. Take...

Desperate reporter: Fire has broken out.

O’Toole: Where?

Reporter: The Jinsibi district.

Member of audience: It is not a district that matters.

O’Toole: It will spread!

Member of Audience: Then in God’s name use the fire brigade!

Ruala sheikh: We have tried, Orence, but there is no force in the water.

O’Toole: Then you must carry it.

R. sheikh: The Ruala do not carry water.

Quinn: What else are they good for?

Ahhh, the fatal stabbing...gulping the blood with gusto from a plastic cup...The righteous pony-tailed uncle/drug dealer/murderer...the betrayed wife/niece/sister back in Mexico...The booming music as the assassin "squeezes" through the bedroom window "with a large knife in his hand"...The tentative attacks with a 15-lb weight and a knife... Why are we not surprised to learn in the 25th paragraph of a 26-graph story that: "All of the adults in the home are illegal immigrants."

Just more lovely cultural enrichment from our Southern neighbors, let's not be racist by discouraging such solid, uhhhhhh, ciudadanos, from putting down roots here:

Witness: Stabbing Suspect Drank Victim's Blood--

Mauricio Mendez Lopez is sought in the stabbing death of Macario Cruz.

Published: Tuesday, August 3, 2010 at 10:18 p.m.

BARTOW | After stabbing his roommate to death, Mauricio Mendez Lopez raised a plastic cup filled partially with the victim's blood and drank it, according to an eyewitness.

"He had a cup in his hand," Mariella Mendez, who lived with the two men, told a Bay News 9 interpreter Tuesday. "He told me, 'That dog is dead now and his life belongs to me.' "

Lopez "raised the glass in the air and said aloud, '...this is my secret,' and laughed as he ran away from the residence," according to a Bartow police report.

Lopez, who remains at large, is accused of killing 32-year-old Macario Cruz about 9:30 p.m. Sunday in the house they shared at 1055 Martin Luther King Blvd. in Bartow.

Bartow police say the fatal confrontation stemmed from a love triangle where Cruz was in a relationship with Mariella Mendez, who also lives in the home with her children. She is the sister of Cruz's wife, who lives in Mexico.

Lopez, the uncle of the two women, didn't approve of the relationship. Reports say he had warned the two July 24 that he would tell Cruz's wife and Mendez's father if the affair wasn't ended.

On that same day, Lopez struck Cruz in the face with a 15-pound hand weight, then chased Cruz and Mendez from the home with a knife, police reports said.

Four days later, Lopez told Mendez he was going to kill her and Cruz in the next 15 days if they refused to end the relationship, police said.

There was no more contact with Lopez until Sunday.

Mendez told police that while she was outside she heard Lopez turn music on in his bedroom very loud.

Suddenly, Mendez said, Lopez forced his bedroom window open and squeezed through it with a large knife in his hand, lurching toward Cruz's 22-year-old brother, Juan Cruz, saying he was going to kill him.

While the younger Cruz was able to escape, he was cut by Lopez in his lower back.

That's when Lopez went into the house and Mendez heard her children scream, reports said.

"He closed the door in front," Mendez said. "I tried to go in, but I couldn't. All I heard was the children screaming, 'Please don't kill him. Uncle, please let him live. Don't kill Macario.' "

When Lopez came out of the home, he placed a knife blade to Mendez's throat and demanded her cell phone.

Fearing for her life, she gave it to him.

Before he left, Lopez got the plastic cup and scooped up blood from the floor, Bartow police said.

"In Mexico, they say that the blood he drank was so he could evade law enforcement," Mendez said. "He kept saying that his life belonged to him and that's why he had to drink it. To me, it's as if the devil was working him


A Mexican woman, who asked her name be withheld because of the nature of the event, said the ritual is known to criminal underworld elements in Mexico, especially among drug dealers.

"They do that in order to get strength," the woman said. "It's a scary thought that someone would do that. But it is out there."
