Well Thank God!

I think I speak for most everyone in the blogosphere when I say, thank God, Verne Troyer, (aka “Mini me”) has put a temporary stop on distribution of that sex tape featuring him and his ex-girlfriend:

The celebrity Web site TMZ posted a G-rated (yet still disturbing) 25-second snippet of the video last week, but pulled the clip down Friday evening after federal judge Philip Gutierrez granted a temporary restraining order requested by Troyer’s attorneys.

The ruling also prevents any attempt by a porn distributor from taking orders for the full 50-minute vid, and keeps TMZ from broadcasting any more clips. Troyer’s suit also seeks $20 million in damages and the return of all copies of the tape.

Kudos to Judge Gutierre for that excellent ruling. If I saw one more picture of him and his tongue with that woman….blechhh!

Peta Spokesman: Jessica Simpson “Doesn’t Have A Right To Eat What She Wants”

And that is a direct quote. Don’t tell me that conservatives are the ones with the fascist impulses. It’s the far left with their constant attacks on everything Americans enjoy, and hold dear, who are the fascists.

Animal rights protesters have launched a series of angry campaigns against A-list carnivores. They are shifting their focus from celebrities who wear fur to others who encourage the “exploitation” of animals by eating them. In its latest campaign, Peta – People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which became infamous for dousing fur-wearers in red paint – has launched an attack on the singer Jessica Simpson.

Ms Simpson was singled out for ridicule after she was spotted wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan “Real Girls Eat Meat”, believed to be a light-hearted dig at her boyfriend Tony Romo’s vegetarian ex-girlfriend, Carrie Underwood.

Now listen to this genius:

Alistair Currie, a spokesman for Peta, said: “Jessica Simpson might have a right to wear what she wants, but she doesn’t have a right to eat what she wants – eating meat is about suffering and death. Some people feel like they are standing up against a tide of political correctness when they make a statement like this – what she is really doing is standing up for the status quo.”

The animal rights group doctored a photo of Ms Simpson to read “Only Stupid Girls Eat Meat”, and listed “five reasons only stupid girls eat meat”.

Found here:

You know what? I have to beg to differ. Stupid isn’t enjoying nature’s bounty as God intended. Stupid is openly telling someone she doesn’t have a right to eat something she most explicitly does have a right to eat.

Kudos to Jessica Simpson for being a politically incorrect rarity in Hollywood. Kid’s got chutzpa.

New McCain Ad: Change You Can Make In Photoshop

The McCain camp riffing on Obama’s apparent narcissism:

Obama Cultists Embrace Hussein

The guy in the middle reminds me of somebody…...Chase, is that you????

(Photo by Kirk Irwin for The New York Times)

Hundreds of his devotees have been adopting his middle name, Hussein, to show solidarity with their Messiah.

The result is a group of unlikely-sounding Husseins: Jewish and Catholic, Hispanic and Asian and Italian-American, from Jaime Hussein Alvarez of Washington, D.C., to Kelly Hussein Crowley of Norman, Okla., to Sarah Beth Hussein Frumkin of Chicago.

Jeff Strabone of Brooklyn now signs credit card receipts with his newly assumed middle name, while Dan O’Maley of Washington, D.C., jiggered his e-mail account so his name would appear as “D. Hussein O’Maley.” Alex Enderle made the switch online along with several other Obama volunteers from Columbus, Ohio, and now friends greet him that way in person, too.

The NYT’s helpfully points out:

Mr. Obama is a Christian, not a Muslim.

Yeah….let’s see…Trinity United Church If Christ, right? Reverend Wright, Pastor? Thanks for reminding me.

Hussein is a family name inherited from a Kenyan father he barely knew, who was born a Muslim and died an atheist. But the name has become a political liability. Some critics on cable television talk shows dwell on it, while others, on blogs or in e-mail messages, use it to falsely assert that Mr. Obama is a Muslim or, more fantastically, a terrorist.

Apparently, Obama was born a Muslim too, but of course, we’re not supposed to mention that.

But the name has become a political liability. Some critics on cable television talk shows dwell on it, while others, on blogs or in e-mail messages, use it to falsely assert that Mr. Obama is a Muslim or, more fantastically, a terrorist.

“I am sick of Republicans pronouncing Barack Obama’s name like it was some sort of cuss word,” Mr. Strabone wrote in a manifesto titled “We Are All Hussein” that he posted on his own blog and on dailykos.com.

It’s true, many Repubs, (and Clinton Dems) do like to taunt him about that. Personally, I don’t bother with his middle name. It isn’t necessary. There are many more legitimate ways to make the case against him.

One woman, with the white-bread name, Ashley Holmes, changed her name online, “to show how little meaning ‘Hussein’ really has.”

But of course, words do have meanings, and in Ashley’s case, it means she’s a true blue Obamiac.

Giant Penis Penetrates Graduation Ceremony

Meet 19 year old Calvin Morett whose sole motive was, “he thought it would be funny”:

(Yes, that’s silly string he’s spraying at the orchestra.)

Saratoga Springs Police Sgt. Sean Briscoe said:

Morett allegedly interrupted the Saratoga Springs High School graduation by marching across SPAC’s stage in an inflatable 6-foot penis costume while diplomas were being given out.

Allegedly??? Come on, it looks like a clear cut case of a guy dressed as a giant penis disrupting a graduation ceremony, to me. Of course, as James Hart at Crime Scene KC noted, “if you’re dressed as a penis, you’re going to be disruptive no matter where you go”.

Morett was ticketed for disorderly conduct, a violation, and will face the charges in City Court on Tuesday, Briscoe said.

Morett graduated from Saratoga Springs High School last year. He tried to streak away from law enforcement, but could not.

“Once I stopped laughing, he was pretty easy to catch because he was tripping on the lower portion of the costume,” said Briscoe, who made the arrest.

I imagine there were some pretty upset grandparents in the audience who were not laughing.

The “giant dork” has been ordered by a judge to write an apology to the city:

The judge has also ordered Morett to pay to have the apology published in a local newspaper, pay court fees and perform 24 hours of community service.

Another Deranged Tour: An Amnesty INTL GITMO Cell Replica Hits The Road

(Is a waterboarding demonstration too much to as for?)

Add this to the BDS tour bus which is also currently criss-crossing the countryside, and all I can say is the feverish dementia that is being displayed by some on the left these days, is becoming positively scary:

Amnesty International is currently touring the country with a life-sized replica of a maximum security prison cell at Guantánamo Bay. But critics say the cell, which is an attempt to call attention to alleged human rights abuses at the camp, is missing basic amenities provided to prisoners.

The 7×10-foot cell, on display on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., lacks amenities like bedding, toiletries and a copy of the Koran, and it has nothing to illustrate that regular meals are served to inmates three times a day.

Here’s a standard GITMO prison cell with standard issue items provided each prisoner (not shown in Amnesty INTL display):

Are ordinary Americans heading out to the ballpark, the beach, or a backyard BBQ, who happen to run into this thing, supposed to give a rat’s ass how small a terrorist’s prison cell is? Are we supposed to care that these unrepentant terrorist thugs, captured on the battlefield, haven’t been given due process through the courts? Cause I sure as hell, don’t.

…Charles “Cully” Stimson, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Detainee Affairs, lashed out against Amnesty’s campaign, calling it a “complete fraud in misrepresenting the condition of detention at Gitmo today.”

They are just perpetuating a tired, old lie,” Stimson told FOXNews.com. He said that Amnesty’s description of conditions at the prison differs significantly from other accounts detailing the treatment of detainees over the last six years.

He pointed out that many detainees “enjoy more than 10 hours a day of recreation time at Guantánamo, which is more than any prisoner in any prison in the United States.”

“The cells at Gitmo are the same size and the same design as those throughout the United States,” he said. “And the Federal Bureau of Prisons has gone to the prison over the years and if we asked them to do it again they would certify those facilities as compliant with the standards for American jails and prisons.”

“Amnesty should be ashamed of itself, but they’re not,” he said.

No of course they’re not. I wonder why they won’t do a similar kind of tour in a country like Iran, for instance, and “raise awareness” about the conditions of their famous Evin Prison. Oh, sure they may issue the occasional tepid outcry at the abuses they hear about from a safe distance, but you’d think an outfit called Amnesty INTERNATIONAL would spend more time protesting in countries that are truly guilty of gross human rights abuses OF ITS OWN CITIZENS.

Amnesty-USA’s media relations director Sharon Sing told FOXNews.com that critics like Stimson are missing the point by focusing on the amenities, which Sing described as “comfort items.”

The purpose of the display, Sing said, is to protest “the U.S. government’s detention of people without charge or trial for six years.”

Of course the Supreme Court just guaranteed the lot of them their day in court, so that’s really a moot point.

It makes you wonder if this is just more BDS inspired theatrics…

John from This Ain’t Hell took the Guantanamo Cell Tour at the National Mall in Washington DC, and took lot’s of pictures, as well as video. As I suspected, it fell flat with ordinary Americans.


Another Bleg: This Time For The Victims Of Terrorism

Alice H wants to get the word out about this worthy cause: Blogress Gila, from My Shrapnel (out of Jerusalem) is participating in the Wheels of Love Charity Bike Ride to benefit Alyn Hospital:

Alyn Pediatric and Adolescent Rehabilitation Hospital – a private non-profit hospital – is one of the world’s leading specialists in the active and intensive rehabilitation of infants, children and adolescents – regardless of religion or ethnic origin – affiliated with a broad range of physical disabilities.

About Gila, from My Shrapnel:

I am, of course, neither sad, nor heroic nor particularly victimized. What I am is an “ordinary Joe” who was seriously injured six years ago in a suicide bombing while waiting for a bus at the Machane Yehuda open air market in Jerusalem.

If you can, please help her raise some money for other victims of terror.

Telethon For The Troops: From The Frontlines

Make sure you join Michelle Malkin at some point today and support this worthy effort. Live streaming of todays events can be viewed at her website, where there is also information on how to help send care packages to the troops. A whole host of conservative pundits are involved. Michelle says:

We’ve got a star-studded line-up of troops, military charities, celebs, and talk radio stars — from Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin to Dr. Laura and Laura Ingraham to musician John Ondrasik and “Lone Survivor” author and Navy SEAL hero Marcus Luttrell — who’ll be joining us in our eight-hour marathon fund-raising drive to help send the largest number of care packages in history to our men and women in uniform serving overseas.

Sean Hannity announced yesterday that he’s personally donating $15,000 to the From the Frontlines effort. Awesome. Here’s my challenge to regular readers and commenters of this site and Hot Air. At the end of the web-a-thon, I’d like to see you collectively match that donation. Can you take up the challenge and make a pledge? Can you all help me walk the troop-supporting walk and raise $15,000 by the end of the night? Can we do it? Yes, you can.

No liberals who were approached to join the effort, were interested.

Highly Coveted Macaca Endorsement Goes To Obama

Not that that’s a bad thing.

As far as I know he isn’t a terrorist, radical, or commie monkey. And I doubt he’s a tyrant because the Hindu people wouldn’t have made him a God, if he were. No, I suspect he’s a very good, and righteous monkey.

Meet Lord Hanuman, Obama’s latest fan:

:

Finally, an endorsement worthy of the Messiah:

The Hindu reports:

All-India Congress Committee member Brij Mohan Bhama has organised a 11-day religious ceremony at Karol Bagh here for his success in the U.S. elections.

The idea of sending an idol of Hanuman dawned on him after friends in the United States mentioned a “prominent American politician who carried a miniature Hanuman idol in his pocket for luck,” Mr. Bhama said speaking on the first day of the ceremony on Tuesday.

“After hearing that, I decided to gift Mr. Obama a larger, gold-plated version along with the wishes of thousands of his supporters in this country,” said the leader struggling to lift the 15 kg, 21-inch brass idol.

The first-day ceremony, pranapratishta, or infusion of divine life into an idol, was performed by a dozen priests reciting mantras in tandem. It was attended by Democrats Abroad India chairperson Carolyn Sauvage, who spent over an hour at the venue.

The idol was later kept in the sanctum sanctorum of the Sankat Mochan Dham, where it will be kept for 10 more days. Mr. Bhama said several temples in New Delhi had already expressed an interest in keeping the idol for worship on their premises before it begins its journey across the Atlantic.

Along with the idol, a copy of Hanuman Chalisa, a compilation of hymns in praise of the Lord, would be sent.

“We will ensure that Mr. Obama receives the idol by August 24, a day before the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado,” said Mr. Bhama.

Big whoop. McCain’s got Wilford Brimley, who’s like a God in his own right.

After Brimley joined his campaign, McCain, came back from the dead, and won the Republican nomination.

Lord Hanuman has serious competition.

Wednesday’s Hero: SSgt. Jude Voss

His courage illustrates a combat truth to these veterans of World War II, Korea and Vietnam: Soldiers aren’t thinking about glory or ideals in the midst of a battle. They fight for the men to the left and right of them.

And that’s just what SSgt. Jude Voss did in September of 2006 when, without consideration to his safety, SSgt. Voss ran through enemy fire and the burning, smoking debris of a truck to rescue Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube. Sgt. Stube was in a bad way. Uniform burning and legs busted, but because of the actions of SSgt. Voss he is alive today.

Because of his actions that day, SSgt. Voss was nominated for and received the Silver Star Medal for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action. “I did what everybody out there would do” Voss said. “I was just the closest guy.”

You can read SSgt. Voss’s story here.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

Flight 93 Memorial Blogburst #36

Park Service refuses to say who broke the circle

Blogburst logo, petition

The planned Flight 93 memorial is described as a circle “broken in two places,” with the unbroken part forming a giant Mecca-oriented crescent (originally called the Crescent of Embrace).

Since last week, the Park Service has been inundated with hundreds of emails, demanding to know WHO is being depicted as breaking the circle.

It can only be the terrorists. The circle is a symbol of peace, and only the terrorists can be charged with breaking the peace on 9/11.

Thus the planned memorial shows the terrorists breaking our peaceful circle and turning it into a giant Mecca oriented crescent (which remains completely intact in the so-called redesign). In other words, it’s one giant: “ALLAHU AKBAR!” (heard on Flight 93′s flight recorder as the doomed flight careened towards the ground).

Superintendent Hanley’s reply

Our emailers are getting a lengthy response from Memorial Project Superintendent Joanne Hanley that fails to address the question of who broke the circle. She mentions the question, then heads off in another direction:

You also had questions about “who broke the circle.” The natural topography of the site upon which the memorial sits is in the shape of a bowl, or a circle. This “circle of embrace” follows the geography, and points your attention down to the Sacred Ground, the crash site where the 40 heroes of Flight 93 gave their lives combating the terrorists. The trees surrounding this “circle of embrace” are missing, or broken, in two places; first, where the flight path of the plane came overhead (which is the location of the planned memorial overlook and visitor center) and second, where the plane crashed at the Sacred Ground (depicted by a ceremonial gate and pathway into the Sacred Ground).

No, the topography is NOT a bowl. The upper arm of the crescent starts 100 vertical feet above the crash site while the lower arm circles 50 vertical feet below the crash site. Beyond misrepresenting the topography, all Hanley does is admit that the circle is broken at the point where the flight path crosses it, without ever addressing the simple question of WHO is being depicted as breaking the circle?

This circle-breaking theme is the Park Service’s OWN explanation for the crescent design (passed on from architect Paul Murdoch), and they refuse to even THINK about what it means.

Park Service Director Mary Bomar is even more oblivious

Director Bomar also received our emails. The response she is sending out does not even acknowledge the question of who breaks the circle:

Thank you for your e mail of June 24, 2008, concerning the Flight 93 National Memorial. The National Park Service (NPS) is aware of these concerns, and took steps in 2005 to investigate this issue. Please be assured that we are all committed to having a national memorial that conveys the full honor due to the heroes of Flight 93, not to the terrorists. Our priority now is to move forward with the building of the memorial, and to continue to commemorate those heroes who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

You may want to visit the park’s website for more in-depth information

at:

http://www.nps.gov/flni.

Mary A. Bomar, Director, National Park Service

Actually it was in 2006 that the office of Mary Bomar herself (then a regional director of the Park Service)”took steps,” utterly fraudulent steps, “to investigate this issue.”

The Park Service’s own consulting expert, a professor of Sharia law at Indiana University named Kevin Jaques, admitted that the giant Mecca-oriented crescent is similar to the Mecca-direction indicator (called a mihrab) around which every mosque is built, but he assured the Park Service that there was no need to worry because no one has ever seen a mihrab anywhere near this BIG before:

Thirdly, most mihrabs are small, rarely larger than the figure of a man, although some of the more ornamental ones can be larger, but nothing as large at [sic] the crescent found in the site design. It is unlikely that most Muslims would walk into the area of the circle/crescent and see a mihrab because it is well beyond their limit of experience. Again, just because it is similar does not make it the same.

This is the information that Mary Bomar had in her hands TWO YEARS AGO: a blatantly dishonest excuse for not being concerned about what was admitted to be the geometric equivalent of the Mecca-direction indicator around which every mosque is built, only bigger than any ever seen before by a factor of a hundred. “Don’t worry. It might be recognizable as a mihrab to people on jetliners like Flight 93 flying overhead, but from the ground? Pshaw!”

Every iota of the Mary Bomar’s phony “investigation” was just as blatantly fraudulent. (Extended expose here.)

Another letter?

We can keep on dumping emails on the Memorial Project if we want. Our petition to stop the memorial asks if signatories want to join an email list for doing things like forwarding emails to targeted individuals. Most are clicking “yes,” and the present campaign has as yet only tapped the first few thousand signatories.

Perhaps it is time for another letter, pointing out that:

Misrepresenting the topography of the crash site to be a bowl does nothing to answer the question of WHO BROKE THE CIRCLE. (Press people can read about the non-answers from Superintendent Hanley and Director Bomar here.)

Go ahead if you have a mind to. (Email link here.)

Roadtrip!:The BDS Tour Bus

Dubbed, the “Bush Legacy Tour”, this expensive gas guzzling behemoth promises to criss cross the country with BDS-suffering moonbats on-board, regaling the citizenry with tales of BDS-inspired woe. Schedule here.

Charles Johnson describes it thus:

With gas headed toward $5 a gallon, a group of “progressive” moonbats have decided it’s a great time to hit the road and drive 50,000 miles in a 45-foot, 28-ton gas-guzzling monument to Bush Derangement Syndrome

If it passes through a location near me, I’m not sure I’ll be able to resist the urge to launch some well aimed rotten eggs at the thing. But that’s just me. Some people may prefer rotten fruit.

UPDATE:

Welcome AOSHQ morons!

See also Exurban League for more info on the bus, and its massive carbon footprint.

And as suspected, Americans United for Change is a Move On.Org affiliated organization.

Thanks to “Uniball” at Aces, for that.

UPDATE II:

My husband had a good idea….if anyone gets close enough: Plant some support the troops magnets on the back of that thing. Better yet, some Bush/Cheney bumperstickers would be great if you have ‘em. I still have some Bush/Cheney stickers somewhere that I’m going to dig up. That would be hilarious.
