SC Pipe Bombers Indicted

You remember the jolly, giggling twosome that were just on their way to the beach with some “home made fireworks?” The two happy-go-lucky guys, who were victims of racial profiling according to CAIR?

Fox News Reports:

They’ve been indicted for carrying explosives across state lines. One of them was also charged with teaching the other how to use them for violent reasons.

But they looked so friendly in their pictures!

The two men were stopped with pipe bombs in their car near a Navy base in South Carolina where enemy combatants have been held. They were held on state charges while the FBI continued to investigate whether there was a terrorism link.

Mohamed was charged with distributing information relating to explosives, destructive devices, and weapons of mass destruction, which is a terrorism-related statute, a Justice Department official said. The crime carries a maximum of 20 years in prison.

I guess it wasn’t fireworks, after all.

La Raza Threatens To Cancel 2009 KC Convention

Boo frickin’ hoo.

They are protesting 73 year old Frances Semler’s appointment on the Parks and Rec Board because of her membership in The Minutemen Project, which I wrote about, here.

We’re supposed to be upset about this because the city stands to lose millions of dollars in revenue if “The Race” chooses not to come.

Councilman Terry Riley:

“I think this is a serious issue,” he said. “The city could lose $15 million.”

Remember, La Raza are the people who find it offensive and a violation of their rights that the U.S. has immigration laws.

Janet Murguía, head of La Raza:

“It is very troubling that we would be in a position to reconsider but in fact we are,” Murguía said during a trip to Kansas City. “I don’t know there is a way short of her stepping down that we could salvage this. This is offensive on many levels. We want the mayor to understand it is something that sends a very wrong signal to the Hispanic community about what the city represents.”

Again, boo fricken hoo. Off with you then!

The coolest part of it is that if they don’t come, they still will have to pay the city “as much as $70,000 for failing to meet its hotel room guarantee”.

Nude Hula Dancing Bandit Caught On Tape

Store clerk, Vicky Gaines had no idea what was in store for her when she arrived to work at Fish’s Quick Stop in De Soto, Missouri, but in the wee hours of the morning on August 18, a bare naked, masked man entered the store, and began to do a hula dance.

This was meant to be a distraction while another man took a case of beer, and some cash from the store. Gaines managed to keep her wits about her, and called the police:

“Um… I’ve got a naked man in my doorway…with a mask on…can you come…up here?”

You can watch the naked hula dancer here, (although his privates, are obscured), and watch as the men run to their car with the case of beer.

Did I hear right? Did she say that he said, “You want somma this?” LOL.

I wonder if, when they were in the planning stages of this heist, they drew straws to see who got to be the naked hula dancer.

Or if the guy just volunteered.

Fred! To Announce Today At 4:30 EDT

Well it’s about damn time.

Ace and others are saying he’s announcing his plans to announce next week?

WTF is an announcement of an announcement?

If he’s announcing that he’s announcing……………………………………………………….

He’s announcing.

Oh, Now what?:

UPDATE: Campaign officials now say there will not be a 4:30 conference call for the media. Rather, the campaign will put out information for the press in a statement. Stay tuned for details later this afternoon.

He may or may not appear on Leno, next Wednesday, while the Republicans are having their debate.

Fred…you’re trying my patience.

ANOTHER HRC Fundraising Scandal!

This Clinton donor is wanted by the FBI, and he’s a Pakistani named Abdul Rehman Jinnah. He’s wanted for illegally funneling contributions to Hillary, and Barbra Boxer’s political coffers in 2004.

Gateway Pundit, Atlas Shrugs and Sweetness and Light have the story so far.


A Pakistani immigrant who hosted fundraisers in Southern California for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is being sought by the FBI on charges that he funneled illegal contributions to Clinton’s political action committee and Sen. Barbara Boxer’s 2004 reelection campaign. Authorities say Northridge businessman Abdul Rehman Jinnah, 56, fled the country after an indictment accused him of engineering more than $50,000 in illegal donations to the Democratic committees. A business associate charged as a co-conspirator has entered a guilty plea and is scheduled to be sentenced in Los Angeles next week.

Will Hillary return this money, too?

Will “the Deciders” deem this a significant story to cover?

Will the Democrats manage to control Congress, and the Whitehouse, after the ’08 elections, (but the Republicans control the bathrooms)?

‘Cause that’s what’s gonna happen, unless the Repubs get smart, and get mean.

These scandals are a gift to the Republican party.

Use them.

Stay tuned.

John Edwards:”Give Up Your SUV’s”

Well, this is sure to endear him to the masses:

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards told a labor group he would ask Americans to make a big sacrifice: their sport utility vehicles.

The former North Carolina senator told a forum by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, yesterday he thinks Americans are willing to sacrifice.

Edwards says Americans should be asked to drive more fuel efficient vehicles. He says he would ask them to give up SUVs.

Edwards himself, drives a hybrid Ford Escape.

His campaign bus is 80/20 biofuel and he claims he’s running his campaign carbon neutral.

So he’s got his own vehicles, covered…..

But there’s still the private jet rides, and that 28,000 square foot house in North Carolina, also supposedly “carbon neutral”. For some strange reason, he and Elizabeth are reluctant to share the utility bills with the public.

But hey, John (Two Americas, and my new house takes up almost all of one of them) Edwards drives a hybrid; he’s cool.

 I am Gobsmacked!:

Innocent Bystanders has an aerial photo of the Edwards’ house in North Carolina….with several SUV’s in the driveway!
