More Racism from Obama’s Peeps

By ATWadmin On May 30th, 2008 at 7:26 pm

Last weekend, The Rev. Michael Pfleger, longtime Obama ally and political supporter, stood at the pulpit of Trinity United Church  mocking Hilllary Clinton, and making racist remarks.

Here’s a sample:  imitating Hillary Clinton losing to Barack Obama, Pfleger sobbed:  “’I’m White! I’m entitled! There’s a black man stealing my show.”

Now,  please note that Trinity United is Obama’s church and Rev. Michael Pfleger is a longtime Obama supporter and friend. Not only did Obama arrange a $100,000 government earmark grant for a youth center at a Catholic church run by the Rev. Michael Pfleger, but Obama also had Rev. Pfleger on his Campaign Advisory Committee and featured  Rev. Michael Pfleger’s endorsement on his website.  While Rev. Pfleger has just been scrubbed from Obama’s website and removed from Obama’s advisory committee, Obama’s connection with Rev. Pfleger is, in fact,  deep and enduring.

I have two questions:

1. When will the Democrats learn that Identity Politics neither unite, nor lead to "social justice?"
 
2. What is wrong with the Trinity United Church? Are they intentionally sabotaging the candidacy of Barack Obama?

Here’s an obscure classic that I always liked. For the trained ear, can you guess who is sharing backing vocals?

OVER HERE – TEMPEST IN A COFFEE POT

By ATWadmin On May 30th, 2008 at 3:11 pm

In the strangest moment in American Beverage History since Prohibition, the Dunkin Donuts chain has pulled off the air a commercial featuring chipper food network hottie Rachel Ray because of claims she was wearing a keffiyeh.

If you are like me (a man for whom Fashion is a David Bowie song and not a way of life) you might not even what the heck a keffiyeh is.  You know that cheap Italian restaurant table cloth Yasser Arafat used to sport around his neck?  That is it.  Apparently it has become a symbol of Muslim extremism.  First they took our airplanes, now our scarves!  What is next!  Thank God Muslim extremists don’t drink alcohol or I might find myself it Gitmo as a fellow-traveler.  

Child of immigrant parents and noted schrill psuedo-journalist Michelle Malkin had a hissy fit upon seeing the ad, claiming Rachel Ray was either wearing it out of ignorance or with intent.  Dunkin Donuts (whose sugar-laced products have probably killed more Americans than Al Queda) pulled the advertisement to avoid the controversy. Turns out poor Rachel was only wearing a black and white paisley scarf, provided by a stylist, but hey you can’t be too careful.   Rachel has three cooking shows, she could be poisoning us slowly or promoting subtle muslim-based alternatives to pork.  

Do we have too much time on our hands or what?  Thank God it is summer, cause here in the Northeast we have cold winters and I’d hate to think folks will be abandoning their scarves to support the troops and catching patriotic colds.        

THE UNION IS SAFE – UNION FLAG BANNED?

By ATWadmin On May 30th, 2008 at 8:10 am

city%20hall%20union%20gflag.jpgYou have to laugh at it all. The apologists for the "peace process" here in Northern Ireland insist that ONE reason why Unionists should support it is because it has "secured the Union". Yeah, right. So, comes the news that the flying of the Union Flag and display of British emblems at Belfast City Hall are under threat. Sinn Fein – the joint largest party in the council chamber – intend raising the issues as a priority when Belfast City Hall opens following refurbish. I think the Unionists who sit in power with these IRA apologists should compromise – jack in the Union Jack – and fly a white flag 365 days a year. It would suit them better I feel.

FIRE SAFETY DEMO BANNED – TOO RISKY!

By ATWadmin On May 30th, 2008 at 8:02 am

"For years it has been a spectacular demonstration of the danger that lurk in the home. Fire crews visited schools with a special trailer that opened to show a mock-up of a kitchen, complete with a cooker and worktops. With the children watching from a safe distance, the experts started a chip pan fire. Then, to gasps and screams, the blaze would explode into a flashover, where everything that can burn suddenly bursts into flame. As firemen put the blaze out, the children would hear a safety talk stressing that chip pan fires are Britain’s top cause of injury from fire and can be extinguished only by putting a damp or wetted towel over the top of the pan. "

It is a dramatic lesson that few forget. But now, amazingly. a fire brigade’s health and safety chiefs have banned the displays  –  in case they tempted a child to tackle a real blaze. Instead, pupils will be handed leaflets and given instructions on what to do in the event of a hot oil blaze. The ban by Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service was revealed when fire crews in Torquay cancelled a series of chip pan demonstrations. 

There is a madness that afflicts our society and this is another example of it. It defies all common sense but yet it is happening in front of our very eyes. How have we permitted this lunacy to prevail?  

BROWN-NOSING MOHAMMED

By ATWadmin On May 30th, 2008 at 7:44 am

It makes you weep,tears of laughter, that is.

I refer to the ever so touching letter written by an interned "British" alleged Jihadist at Gitmo to UK PM Gordon Brown pleading for his release from those awful Americans and their "gulag of our times". 

British citizen Binyam Mohamed (Yip, a good traditional British name) has been banged up in Guantanamo since being detained in April 2002 as he tried to return to the UK from Pakistan. He says he was taken from there to Afghanistan and Morocco for questioning before being transferred to Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.  Mohamed is expected to be charged with terrorism offences in the next few days and to face a US military tribunal.  Earlier this month, his legal team launched a legal bid to force the British government to release evidence for his defence. Mohamed came to Britain as an asylum seeker in 1994, aged 16. His asylum claim was never finally determined but he was given leave to remain and went on to work as a cleaner in west London. You know how it is here  – all are welcome.

His lawyers say that the reason he travelled to Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2001 was in a bid to resolve personal issues after developing a drug problem. Ahem, quite. What could be more plausible than that? 

If he doesn’t get out of Gitmo, he says he has considered killing himself. Fair enough, say I. 

I am sick to the back teeth of the squealing from these captured Jihadists and in particular the sympathetic hearing they  get from the MSM suggesting somehow that they are all poor innocent little fawns, caught in the glaring lights of the US military juggernaut. It’s time the trials were held and if guilty, I believe execution is the required  punishment. If you are not for us, you are against us. Too many innocents have lost their lives to Jihadi scum and it’s time we despatched them to eternity.

HOW TO DEFEAT AL QUEDA

By ATWadmin On May 30th, 2008 at 7:22 am

So, who thinks that we should consider TALKING to Al Queda in an effort to stop them slaughtering us?

The man tipped to be the next head of the London Metropolitan police, PSNI Chief Constable Sir Hugh Orde does, for starters.

Taking time out from his hectic schedule as head of the world’s most politically-correct and absolutely useless police service, the PSNI, Sir Hugh talks to the left wing Guardian newspaper and argues that it’s not IF but rather WHEN we should enter dialogue with the militant Islamics. He bases this view on his experience in Northern Ireland where he now enjoys convicted IRA bombers and bankrobbers sitting on his Policing Board. I guess he looks forward to the day when the masterminds behind 7/7 can get a job on London transport. That would be his idea of a victory.

Here’s the deal –  once appeasement enters the soul, it never goes away. Sir Hugh is an appeaser par excellence. He sees nothing wrong with the appeasement of the IRA in Northern Ireland and therefore it seems natural, even desirable to him, that we appease Al Queda. Orde manifests the politically correct mindset so prevalent in the highest echelons of British policing – he understand that there is no will to DEFEAT terrorists so it is best to cut your losses and talk to them instead. Looking forward to seeing those Al Queda psychopaths flying in -first class – to London to have a bit of a chat with Sir Hugh and his appeasing pals. Just hope the planes don’t divert from Heathrow….

Labour Isn’t Working, I Hope

By ATWadmin On May 29th, 2008 at 3:33 pm

bankrupt.gifOH THE IRONY. The Labour Party is little more than a month from bankruptcy and Gordon Brown, the man who has done so month to tax the British people into poverty, may be held jointly liable for its debts:

"The party has five weeks to find £7.45m to pay off loans to banks and wealthy donors recruited by Lord Levy, Tony Blair’s former chief fundraiser, or become insolvent. A further £6.2m will have to be repaid by Christmas – making £13.65m in all. The sum amounts to two-thirds of the party’s annual income from donations. The figures are a conservative estimate as they do not include interest that will also have to be paid. A Labour source said that although the total debt was listed as £17.8m on the Electoral Commission website, the true level, with interest, was nearer to £24m."

Send in the bailiffs! But wait, it gets better …

"The advice from City solicitors Slaughter and May said unequivocally that leading party officials and members of the NEC would be " jointly and severally" responsible for the party’s debt. The reason is that the Labour party constitution is framed like a local club or society, and has no provision for limiting the liability of its officials or managers."

Words simply cannot express how happy I am at reading those words, yet it gets even better …

"The party’s financial crisis could be compounded this autumn. Three of the biggest unions, Unison, the Communications Workers Union and the GMB have tabled motions at their annual conferences next month calling for members to disaffiliate from Labour. If this goes ahead, Labour would lose £4m of its £19m a year in donations."

What a joy it is to be alive this day. The image of Gordon Brown and the rest of his thieving, socialist junta in Newgate, with bowls of watery gruel for company has me floating on air. And what a bind they find themselves in: possible bankruptcy entailing personal liability, or they thieve even more from us to stay in business and see their electoral prospects crash through the floor. Bring on the summer.

<Exits, whistling a happy tune …>

You are either with us or you are against us in the fight against terror.

By ATWadmin On May 29th, 2008 at 3:29 pm

unc_crpy_3.gifIt has been said that I either can’t or won’t debate certain issues, or my point of view. Well on certain topics you’re right I won’t.

We have been obsessed on this blog lately on Global Warming, whether it exists, and whether it is caused by man or not. My views on this subject are well known. This debate is more akin to how many Angels can dance on the head of a pin. If I am right than 100 years from now our grandchildren will be laughing at the sky is falling crowd. If I am wrong than they will be killing each other over food resources and driving horse and buggies.

This post however today is to revive the stakes of a problem that faces us now. The War on Terror and the stakes that are involved in that war. I will attempt to lay out my views and opinions on this war. If you believe that my views are wrong than please state so, if you agree in whole or part I would appreciate your comments also. I seem to be a force of one in my views on this subject and I find that alarming.

You are either with us or you are against us in the fight against terror.

The Islamists have been at war with the West since 1979. Thanks to the policies of Jimmy Carter the Islamic Extremists gained control of Iran and have been organizing a war against ALL non Islamic people of the world with the stated goal of creating one world under Islamic Sharia Law. This is their stated goal. One they have repeated over and over, yet there are large portions of the Wests population that refuse to believe this no matter how many times they say it, or how many people they kill.

The current phase of this war came to a head on Sept 11. The attack on the U.S, Mainland was not carried out by Iran or Iraq. It was carried out by a terrorist cell. A cell that was under the control of one of the many armies of terror that are engaged in this war.

The reaction to this event can be summed up by the words of the President of the United States.

"Tonight we are a country awakened to danger and called to defend freedom.  Our grief has turned to anger, and anger to resolution.  Whether we bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done." and these "On September the 11th, enemies of freedom committed an act of war against our country.  Americans have known wars — but for the past 136 years, they have been wars on foreign soil, except for one Sunday in 1941.  Americans have known the casualties of war — but not at the center of a great city on a peaceful morning.  Americans have known surprise attacks — but never before on thousands of civilians.  All of this was brought upon us in a single day — and night fell on a different world, a world where freedom itself is under attack. "

This war is still only in its beginning. Afghanistan and Iraq are just two battles in this war. The enemy is consolidating its forces and its allies. Iran is building nuclear weapons not to play chess and act as deterrents as we did with the Russians, they are building them to use them.

The Iranian Republican Guard controls the military. It is run by Imamadjihad. He is a member of a sect that believes in the return of the twelfth Imam. "The Mahdi" (a sidebar note Mookie in Iraq is also part of this sect thus the name of his forces) The belief states that the Twelfth Imam can only return after the world has been bathed in BLOOD. That is their goal to establish the World Caliphate.

Every nation has been seeded with Terror cells that are only now starting to activate. We are in the beginning of the fight of our lives, against people that don’t wear uniforms, target woman and children as primary targets, and have no desire to negotiate terms. You either convert, submit or die.

So I say "You are either with us or you are against us in the fight against terror". That means to me anyway that you oppose our fight against this enemy you are aiding them and are part of the enemy forces.

PROTESTING THE PROTEST

By ATWadmin On May 29th, 2008 at 8:47 am

Just about to go on to BBC Radio Ulster’s NOLAN show to discuss the planned protest against US President George Bush’s forthcoming visit to Northern Ireland.

The usual anti-war moonbat left will be doing their usual street performance protest art for the cameras  but I wonder why? After all, Bush is coming here to put his seal of approval on the Assembly, a political forum which institutionalises terrorism – so what’s the problem? The Bush administration is also actively encouraging the pumping of a lot of investment into Northern Ireland so again, what’s the problem? Finally, people in Iraq can now do the same as people in Belfast and protest against that which they do not like – thanks to the Bush liberation of that land from Saddam. Back in his day a street protest would have ended up in your being murdered, so again, what’s the problem?

I’ll tell you what the problem is – there is an anti-American hard left rabble here in Northern Ireland which reflexively kicks against a US President that stands up for freedom and liberty. I don’t think they even see just how juvenile they look with their little anti-war placards and their student grant mindset.

THAT is the truth behind this farcical protest and I’m protesting it.
