Never a Dull Moment

Vancouver
A woman in her 20’s was found dead in a tent at the Vancouver Occupy campsite of a drug overdose this past Saturday. To his credit, the Mayor Gregor Robertson directed the city manager to clear the park.

Lauren Gill, an organizer at the camp said the girl’s death proves the need for more services for addicts in the city. Who’s a good socialist? That’s always the answer, isn’t it. More government.

Gil described her as “a bright, energetic, beautiful, kind, passionate, artistic youth” and said she’d known her for several years. I thought she was a drug addict?

After the incident reporters began to be roughed up & one cameraman was knocked to the ground.

Sounds just like a Tea Party event.

Washington D.C.
Saturday night saw another incident at the D.C. Occupy event.

Hundreds of Occupiers linked arms to block city streets.

A family of three protesters were hit by a vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was not charged. The three, however, were ticketed.

According to 2 witnesses, the accident was unavoidable. The family had a different account.

Lt. Christopher Micciche of the D.C. police said the witnesses told police the 3 jumped in front of the vehicle & one apparently leaped onto the hood.

I, for one, would never believe the fuzz. Next weekend I think I’ll take my kids downtown & show them how to jump in front of moving vehicles. It’s those memories that last a lifetime.

Zuccotti Park, New Yory City
Eminent Domain strikes the park campsite. Organizers are ordering individual tents be removed in some areas and replaced with larger community tents. These larger tents will have access restricted to only certain people. That’s discrimination!

After more than a few rapes & sexual assaults have occurred at the site, the folks in charge have decided to raise a female-only tent.

That sparked talks of separate tents for homosexuals, transgenders, married folks, etc. So every group will eventually have their own tent.

Evidently the female tent will be policed by only females.

This does not sound like the all tolerent, all inclusive community I thought it would be (laugh). It’s sounds like forced segregation. It sounds like, dare I say it, the 1%. Walling off good peaceloving people. Telling them they can’t come in here. Mr. Organizer, Tear Down This Wall!

San Diego
Here’s thanks for ya.
The Owners of a pair of Hot Dog vending carts had to close up at their Civic Center Plaza location.
The Occupy protestors gave thanks to the vendors for their generosity in providing free food & coffee. How, you say? By splattering the carts with blood & urine.

The owner of the carts initially gave away food & drinks but apparently could not continue to do so forever. That’s when things got ugly. I guess free food & drink is now a right.

They also stole items & spray painted graffiti on the carts.

The owner of the carts said she may not be able to clean them sufficiently & they may have to be replaced. A good new cart costs in excess of $2000.00, not to mention the 2 operators that are now unemployed.

What’s not to like about this bunch?

Joke du Jour

One morning the Company Commander called his Sergeant in. “Sarge, I just got a telegram. Private Jones’ mother died yesterday. Better go tell him and send him in to see me.”
So the Sergeant calls for his morning formation and lines up all the troops.

“Listen up, men,” says the Sergeant. “Johnson, report to the mess hall for KP. Smith, report to Personnel to sign some papers. The rest of you men report to the Motor Pool for maintenance. Oh by the way, Jones, your mother died, report to the commander.”

Later that day the Commander called the Sergeant into his office. “Hey, Sarge, that was a pretty cold way to inform Jones his mother died. Couldn’t you be a bit more tactful, next time?”

“Yes, sir,” answered the Sarge. A few months later, the Commander called the Sergeant in again with, “Sarge, I just got a telegram. Private McGrath’s mother died. You’d better go tell him and send him in to see me. This time be more tactful.”

So the Sergeant calls for his morning formation. “Ok, men, fall in and listen up. Everybody with a mother, take two steps forward — NOT SO FAST, McGRATH!”

Joke of the Day

While sport fishing in the Florida Keys, a tourist capsized his boat. He could swim, but he had heard that barracuda will attack people so that kept him clinging to the overturned craft.

Spotting an old beachcomber standing on the shore, the tourist shouted, “Are there any barracuda around here?”

“Naw,” the man hollered back, “they ain’t been around here for some time!”

Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming leisurely toward the shore.

About halfway there the swimmer yelled, “How’d you get rid of them?”

“We didn’t do nothin,'” the old beachcomber said.

“Wow,” said the tourist.

The beachcomber added, “The sharks got ’em.”

Driving Miss Media

Have you heard the term, “Drive by Media”? Rush Limbaugh coined it several years ago.

For those who don’t know it’s meaning, it is a twist on the term “Drive by Shooting”.

The Urban Dictionary accurately defines it as, “Rush Limbaugh’s term for the sensational, scandal-seeking, and agenda-driven coverage that is typical of the national press corps in America. Limbaugh draws an analogy between the media who cover a story with a barrage of unfair cheap shots before moving on to the next flavor of the month and an inner city gang that drives by and sprays a target with gunfire and then moves on to their next target.”

There is no real investigative journalism, no thought to the reporting, other than an overarching agenda.

There is never an apology when things turn out opposite to how things were originally reported; no follow-up.

There is just deafening silence where once was earth-shaking sensationalism.

It’s not that today’s “Journalists” are incapable of real investigation. It must first & only fit their overall worldview. A recent good example was the Herculean effort & hundreds of man-hours spent pouring through former Governor Palin’s emails.

This brings us to one of the latest cases of journalistic malpractice perpetrated by the “Drive Bys”. The liberation & democratization of Libya from the evil Gaddafi regime.


The al-Qaeda flag, which contains the phrase “there is no God but Allah” with a full moon underneath, flies above the new national flag of Libya at the courthouse in Benghazi.

There is no God but Allah


The courthouse in Benghazi is where the “rebels” established their provisional government, and it is where the “media center” for communication with foreign journalists was located during the fight against Gaddafi.
It has been known all along that al-Qaeda was very heavily represented in the army of “the rebels” and among the leadership of “the rebels”. Now, thanks in part to Obama, they have taken over Libya and they intend to impose a brutal form of Sharia law on the entire Libyan population. Please don’t say, “It was NATO, not this administration”. America is NATO.

This is an account from an eyewitness: “It was here at the courthouse in Benghazi where the first spark of the Libyan revolution ignited. It’s the symbolic seat of the revolution; post-Gaddafi Libya’s equivalent of Egypt’s Tahrir Square. And it was here, in the tumultuous months of civil war, that the ragtag rebel forces established their provisional government and primitive, yet effective, media center from which to tell foreign journalists about their ’Fight for freedom’.”

They knew it wasn’t freedom they were fighting for. It was a new theocracy & another piece of the Caliphate puzzle.

According to the UK Telegraph, the leader of the Libyan rebels was very open about the fact that his “troops” included significant numbers of al-Qaeda fighters that were firing bullets at U.S. soldiers in Iraq.

Hasidi

Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.

Like Egypt, we were led to believe the Libyan “Rebels” just wanted to take their country back for the betterment of their people. Why were we not told al-Qaeda was part of the Rebel Alliance. I thought al-Qaeda were our enemies. Why would we help them? Gaddafi was a bad dude & I’m sure he received a non-stop flight to the lowest level of hell but, in my book, al-Qaeda is worse. Like Mubarak of Egypt, Gaddafi was contained. These terrorists have no boundaries.

I’m just a schlub with a blog, but even I knew this would happen. I wasn’t sure which terrorist group would seize control, but I knew one of them would fill the vacuum.

Where are the “Drive Bys”, explaining that maybe they should have looked a little deeper and, now on multiple occasions, admit they were wrong & there will no democracy, no freedom.

Don’t hold your breath.

Joke of the Day

Three vampires walk into a bar.

The bartender looks at him suspiciously, but decides to serve them anyway. “What’ll be, boys?”

The first vampire says “Blood. Give me blood.”

The second vampire says “I too wish for blood!”

The third vampire says “Give me plasma.”

The Bartender smiles and says “Got it. Two bloods, and a blood-light.”

A Couple of News Items

WHAT WOULD ABE DO?

Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. of Illinois, is in favor of hiring all unemployed workers at an average of $40,000/yr. Cost: $600,000,000,000 dollars. That’s for one year. Jackson added, “It could be a 5 year program”. What then? Fire them all, again? He is also in favor of bailing out all the states at a cost of $104 billion. For another $100 billion we could bailout all the cities.
Watch in amazement!
Great plan Jesse. What would these people do? Usually, when you hire someone, you expect him or her to do something for his or her pay. Maybe they could be Obama’s civilian security force.

He also wants this to be done by executive fiat. By the mere sweep of Obama’s decree pen, there will no unemployment.

I’m sure honest Abe would be all in on this idea. After all, Congress has been kind of naughty lately. Not listening to our king and all.

Jesse, Jr. makes his father look intelligent.

BIG SIS
Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano recently told a congressional panel she learned of operation “Fast and Furious” only after one of the border agents, Brian Terry, was killed. That was December of 2010.

There’s a slight problem with her testimony. As the video below shows, she was well aware & actually helped launch the original “Operation Gun Runner” program, that morphed into “Fast & Furious”. It’s the same program & she knows it. It does, however, depend on what the definition of “is” is.

The White House press conference was from March 2009. Didn’t Eric Holder say the same thing, that he only recently heard about the operation in the news?

She & Holder are either corrupt as the day is long, or totally incompetent. I vote for both.

It’s Mainstream on Mainstreet

I’ve been writing about the “Occupy” folks & the events leading up to the recent movement a lot lately. Why? Because it is very important to get the truth out, before the truth no longer matters.. Whether one wants to see the reality or ignore it for ideological reasons is an individual choice. We are all free to choose, for now.

As an aside, the more research I do on these events & their “Coordinators”, the more I see, none of this is new nor original. It’s all been done before; even the names are just rehashed.

Oh look, it's SDS (1969)

The first event, several weeks ago (Sept.) known as the Day of Rage isn’t even a new slogan. It was first used in Oct. 1969 in Chicago.

The situation we find ourselves in today is, or will be, much worse than it was in the sixties when all this began. Then, the people in charge of these uprisings were kids. They were very dangerous, but naïve. They were outside the system, so it was difficult for them to get any real traction for their movement. Unbeknownst to most they were being trained & controlled by the Soviets, the Cubans & the revolutionaries out of Quebec, Canada. Yet that support was little known. There was no tolerance for communism in mainstream society then.

Jump to today. Those same sixties radicals & communists are the system. They are government leaders. They run foundations with billions in assets. They are professors at universities all across the country.

I recently wrote of the homegrown terrorists of the sixties. Look at them now. Bernardine Dorhn is a law professor at Northwestern University.

Ayers & Dorhn, just regular folks!

Bill Ayers is a retired professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, formerly holding the titles of Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar. Now he travels around and speaks on how to reform our education system. These are the unrepentant terrorists we want teaching our children? Really?

For those of you who still think the “Occupy Events” are just made up of independent minded freedom loving folks, I think it’s time to wake up.

I’ve seen many interviews of people who quit their jobs to come & basically make this their new career. None of them appear to be aligned with any particular group or movement. It seems the media has made an effort to find these independents. Evidently the only ones trying to maintain the illusion that this movement is just disparate individuals is the media.

Despite their attempts, the support for this movement is much less concealed than it was 40 or so years ago. Maybe due to the easier access to information; maybe these groups don’t feel the need to hide it. Whatever the reason, what were once thought to be fringe “kook” factions, are now openly supporting the movement.

I preface the following with this: Look at your friends and acquaintances. Almost without exception, you will all be of like, or at least similar mind.

If you feel a need to sympathize or align yourself with this movement, here is the company with which you will be keeping. Remember the old & always true saying, “Birds of a feather, flock together.”

Here is just a partial list of the “Occupy” movement’s supporters, sponsors & cheerleaders:

Communist Party USA, American Nazi Party, Leaders of Iran, Hezbollah, The North Korean government, the communist Chinese government, Hugo Chavez, The Revolutionary Communist Party, The New Black Panthers, Socialist Party USA, CAIR, White Revolution, Marxist Student Union, the Nation of Islam. That is just a partial list.

These are the groups that free & freedom loving Americans want to be connected to? Think about it.
