Sarkozy: Mideast Christians victims of "religious cleansing"

At least one Western leader has the balls to call it like it is these days.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy said Friday that Christian minorities in the Middle East are victims of "religious cleansing", following deadly attacks on churches in the region.

"We cannot accept and thereby facilitate what looks more and more like a particularly wicked programme of cleansing in the Middle East, religious cleansing," he said in an annual New Year's address to religious leaders.

An attack on a Coptic church in the Egyptian city of Alexandria on January 1 killed 21 people.

No one has yet claimed responsibility for that attack, which came after threats published online against Egypt's Copts from an Al-Qaeda-linked group in Iraq which had said it was behind a deadly assault on a church in Baghdad in October.

Forty-four worshippers and two priests died in the attack on a Syriac Catholic church in Baghdad in October, the worst of a series of attacks against Christians in Iraq.

French security sources said this week they had launched an investigation on terrorism-related charges after a priest filed a complaint over threats made online against a Coptic church in France.

Ace of Spades: Daily Kos "targeted" and "bulls eyes" Gabrille Giffords in 2008

Via Ace of Spades site he points out the following when it comes to the liberal screeching about "language." This goes back to 2008.
You know who had Gabrille Giffords on her "target list"? I don't mean Sarah Palin, I mean this screechy little girl.

Who to primary? Well, I'd argue that we can narrow the target list by looking at those Democrats who sold out the Constitution last week. I've bolded members of the Blue Dogs for added emphasis.

I added italics to "target list," but Kos used that term.

The screechy little hysteric then writes:

Not all of these people will get or even deserve primaries, but this vote certainly puts a bulls eye on their district.

Emphasis added, again. When will Markos denounce himself?

I don't have a problem with using such language but if you are going to start nonsense like that whining about Sarah Palin or the tea party then you better be clean as a whistle on your side.

Daily Kos pulls "my congresswoman is now dead to me" column.

You can see the webcache here.

Liberals using Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords shooting for political purposes.

Check the usual suspects like gawker and Daily Kos as the commentators are blaming the tea party, palin, sharron angle and everyone to their right as reason for this horrible shooting.

Watch from this point on various subject how many times her name will be used to push a political agenda because that is what the left does. Never let a crisis even one as sick as this go to waste to push their goals.

Using their twisted logic if an Islamic terrorist acted, then all Muslims are to blame.

Police slammed for apologizing to Ottawa Muslims During Ramadan arrests.

You know the PC culture is bad when everyone comes down on you as being too politically correct.
OTTAWA — There is one law for all Canadians, and no religious group should expect special treatment when it comes to enforcement of the law, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Thursday.

The remarks were made in response to reports that RCMP officers had apologized for arresting Muslims on terrorism-related charges during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

On Aug. 25, the RCMP and Ottawa Police arrested two Ottawa men — Hiva Muhammad Alizadeh, Misbahuddin Ahmed — on terrorism-related charges. A third man, Khurram Syed Sher, was arrested elsewhere.

The next day, Aug. 26, the RCMP and city police staged a special, hour-long meeting with members of Ottawa's Muslim community with the ostensible purpose of ensuring them that their community was not regarded with undue suspicion despite the arrests. However, at least one officer was heard apologizing during meeting for the arrests having occurred during Ramadan, which ran last year from Aug. 12 to Sept. 9.

Prominent members of the Muslim Canadian Congress applauded the prime minister's remarks, saying it is about time that senior government officials emphasized the unitary nature of Canadian law, and that religious sentiment cannot be allowed to interfere with the law.

"He (Harper) is right," said Salma Siddiqui, vice president of the Congress. "We have one law in Canada and it applies to everybody. We need to stop all this political correctness."

"The notion that in Ramadan you can't arrest people is so foolish," Tarek Fatah, a founding member of the Congress, told a Calgary radio station.

NYTIMES: Obama gets his military cuts to $78 Billion to starve off other cuts.

Notice out of all the big budget spending this is the only one he has gotten out in front as showing he is fiscally responsible. I will give him credit when he starts to cut into spending of programs he is comfortable with instead of the military where he is quick to demand cuts.
The decision to go after the Pentagon budget, even while troops remain locked in combat overseas, is the clearest indication yet that President Obama will be cutting spending broadly across the government as he seeks to reduce the deficit — and stave off attacks from Republicans in Congress who want to shrink the government even more.

Republicans have for the most part resisted including military spending as they search for quick reductions in federal spending.

To make ends meet, Mr. Gates also announced that he would seek to recoup billions of dollars by increasing fees paid by retired veterans under 65 for Defense Department health insurance, even though Congress has rejected such proposals in the past. And he outlined extensive cuts in new weapons.

Cutting up to 47,000 troops from the Army and Marine Corps forces — roughly 6 percent — would be made easier by the withdrawal under way from Iraq, and the reductions would not begin until 2015, just as Afghan forces are to take over the security mission there. But Mr. Gates said the cuts in Pentagon spending were hardly a peace dividend, and were forced by a global economic recession and domestic pressures to find ways to throttle back federal spending.

“This department simply cannot risk continuing down the same path where our investment priorities, bureaucratic habits and lax attitudes toward costs are increasingly divorced from the real threats of today, the growing perils of tomorrow and the nation’s grim financial outlook,” Mr. Gates said at an afternoon news conference.

Dolphin's owner Stephen Ross and Jeff Ireland are two filthy dumb whores.

I am stunned at the lack of class these two had in dealing with not getting Jim Harbaugh and leaving Tony Sparano looking like an idiot at the same time.

You think Harbaugh realized that if you are willing to talk to him while leaving a head coach in place that you two morons may not be the best people to work for at this time?

Ross and Ireland better come out tomorrow and grovel for embarrassing the Dolphins and its fans with this garbage behavior.

Muslims seens as threats by 42% of French and 40% of Germans.

and this is the enlightened continent.
Four in 10 French and German people see Muslims living in their country as a "threat," according to a poll published Tuesday by French newspaper Le Monde.

Forty-two percent of French people and 40 percent of Germans questioned by pollster IFOP said they considered the presence of a Muslim community in their country "a threat" to their national identity, Le Monde said.

The findings of the study "go beyond linking immigration with security or immigration with unemployment, to linking Islam with a threat to identity," said Jerome Fourquet of IFOP, quoted by Le Monde.

Of the sample of people questioned for the survey in early December, 68 percent in France and 75 percent in Germany said they considered Muslims "not well integrated in society."

Out of these, 61 percent of French and 67 percent of Germans blamed this perceived failure on "refusal" by Muslims to integrate.

Eighteen percent of those who said Muslims were not integrated in France and 15 percent in Germany blamed it on "racism and lack of openness by certain French and German people."

Jerry Brown looking at ways to get around Prop 13.

You idiots in California voted in a tax and spend liberal, so get ready to pay more.

Heading into a meeting with local government officials Tuesday morning, Brown said implementation of the property-tax limits that Californians hold dear has contributed to the state's financial mess. The new governor said his budget proposal next week would include plans to return to cities and counties many government functions that Sacramento took over after Proposition 13 passed.

The measure "started the centralization of power," Brown told reporters before entering the closed-door meeting. Afterward, he expanded on that idea, saying Proposition 13 "took away the power of counties to tax, for the most part; it sent the decisions up to Sacramento. So we want to redistribute all that."

In an interview Tuesday, Brown said he did not support an increase in property taxes. But he said that much of the fallout from the measure should be undone and that he planned to propose a "complex reordering" of government that would address some of the problems the measure created.

340,000 children born to illegals in America and fight over Birthright Citizenship

NYTIMES with yet another sympathy piece on illegals and the fight over ending birthright citizenship which is now a rarity in the world.
The next big immigration battle centers on illegal immigrants’ offspring, who are granted automatic citizenship like all other babies born on American soil. Arguing for an end to the policy, which is rooted in the 14th Amendment of the Constitution, immigration hard-liners describe a wave of migrants like Ms. Vasquez stepping across the border in the advanced stages of pregnancy to have what are dismissively called “anchor babies.”

The reality at this stretch of the border is more complex, with hospitals reporting some immigrants arriving to give birth in the United States but many of them frequent border crossers with valid visas who have crossed the border legally to take advantage of better medical care. Some are even attracted by an electronic billboard on the Mexican side that advertises the services of an American doctor and says bluntly, “Do you want to have your baby in the U.S.?”

....A studyreleased in August by the Pew Hispanic Center found that about 340,000 children were born to illegal immigrants in the United States in 2008 and became instant citizens.

In April, Representative Duncan Hunter, Republican of California, one of those pushing for Congressional action on the issue, stirred controversy when he suggested that children born in the United States to illegal immigrants should be deported with their parents until the birthright citizenship policy was changed.

“And we’re not being mean,” Mr. Hunter told a Tea Party rally in Southern California. “We’re just saying it takes more than walking across the border to become an American citizen. It’s what’s in our souls.”

Immigrant advocates say intolerance is driving the measure. “They call themselves patriots, but they pick and choose which parts of the Constitution they support,” said Lydia Guzman, a Latino activist in Phoenix. “They’re fear-mongerers. They’re clowns.”

Simple fact is that automatic birthright is an incentive to cross the border and once the child is born able to get social services that are a drain on the rest of society. It is unfair and unjust and something must be done.

Nigger and Injun taken out of new edition of Huckleberry Finn to be politically correct.

Absolute disgrace as the stupid masses who for years have wanted to censor this book finally get their way. A classic destroyed to appease the idiots. I dare anyone to find a book written now that is as anti racism as Huck Finn.
What is a word worth? According to Publishers Weekly, NewSouth Books’ upcoming edition of Mark Twain’s seminal novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn will remove all instances of the “n” word—I’ll give you a hint, it’s not nonesuch—present in the text and replace it with slave.

The new book will also remove usage of the word Injun. The effort is spearheaded by Twain expert Alan Gribben, who says his PC-ified version is not an attempt to neuter the classic but rather to update it. “Race matters in these books,” Gribben told PW. “It’s a matter of how you express that in the 21st century.”
