More blather from the MSM

This "poll" purports to prove that the average American is despondent about their future. Then this gem:
"One in four, 25 percent, anticipates the second coming of Jesus Christ."
Just your old, run of the mill 25% of folks expecting the end of the world. Jeeze...

More from Steyn

There wasn't much in evidence last year. Take another little vignette that'll look good in the movie version:

Mustaf Jama, a Somali ''asylum seeker'' in Britain wanted for the murder of a policewoman, fled the country by taking his sister's passport, wearing a niqab (the full Islamic head-to-toe get-up that covers everything but the eyes) and passing unhindered through the checkpoints at Heathrow.

How about that? It turns out we are profiling after all, but we're profiling everybody except Muslims. Your wizened l'il ol' gran'ma on a Yuletide break to London is bent double and out of breath struggling to take off her coat and shoes. The officials sternly scrutinize her passport to check that the picture matches her flustered and bewildered face. All around her hundreds of women are doing the same, mutely shuffling through the scanner in their stocking feet. But Britain's most wanted man is breezing through because he took the precaution of dressing as a Muslim woman. And it would be culturally insensitive to expose them to the same scrutiny as your gran'ma.


I guess that arresting and executing the murderer isn't an option.

SATELLITES will be used to pinpoint prostitutes in danger following the murders of five sex workers in Suffolk, The Scotsman can reveal.

Prompted by the killings, new locator devices will be piloted with prostitutes in Edinburgh from February.

Police say that by alerting them immediately to the whereabouts of prostitutes being attacked, the alarms could save lives.

Why indeed?,CST-EDT-STEYN31.article
Here's something else nobody's curious about: Sandy Berger. Consider this passage from the inspector general's official report on the Sandypants and his destruction of classified materials from the National Archives:

''Mr. Berger exited the Archives on to Pennsylvania Avenue, the north entrance. It was dark. He did not want to run the risk of bringing the documents back in the building risking the possibility [redacted] might notice something unusual. He headed towards a construction area on Ninth Street. Mr. Berger looked up and down the street, up into the windows of the Archives and the DOJ, and did not see anyone. He removed the documents from his pockets, folded the notes in a 'V' shape and inserted the documents in the center. He walked inside the construction fence and slid the documents under a trailer.''

Why is this man getting his security clearance back in 2008?

Why evil thrives

CNN showed an old, fawning interview of Saddam by Bernard Shaw. They end the piece with the reverential "he was 69". Disgusting!
Less and less in the West these days -- thanks to the insidious doctrine of moral equivalence -- do we seem capable of unequivocally condemning evil, even when it is staring us right in the face.

Rest assured, though, that our enemies are watching our timid, politically correct reactions. And learning. And plotting.

The record speaks for itself

Lenin - Dead of the complications of a stroke, perhaps assisted by poisoning, January 21, 1924.

Benito Mussolini - Executed without judicial procedure by communist partisans, April 28 1945. The act was robbed of any meaning by the concurrent murder of his innocent mistress, Clara Petacci.

Adolf Hitler - Dead by his own hand beneath the ruins of the Berlin Chancellory, April 30, 1945.

Stalin - Dead of stroke aided by medical neglect at age 74 at his dacha outside Moscow, March 5, 1953.

Ho Chi Minh - Dead of heart failure at age 79 at his home in Hanoi, September 2, 1969.

Francisco Franco - Dead of old age at 82 on November 20, 1975.

Mao Tse Tung - Dead of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at age 82, on September 9, 1976.

Tito - Dead of circulatory problems on May 4, 1980, three days before his 88th birthday.

Nicolae Ceaucescu - Shot out of hand at age 71 after a bogus "trial" following a national
uprising, December 25, 1989.

Ruhollah Khomeini - Dead of cancer on June 3, 1989, at the age of 89.

Kim Il-sung - Dead of a heart attack at 82 in Pyongyang, July 8, 1994.

Pol Pot - Dead at age 72 (possibly a suicide) on April 16, 1998, while waiting to be turned over to an international tribunal.

Idi Amin Dada - Dead of old age at age 79 on August 16, 2003, after years of exile in Saudi

Slobodan Milosevic - Dead in his cell under unexplained circumstances while in the hands of an international criminal tribunal at the Hague, March 11, 2006.

Most of the great butchers of the 20th century died of old age, in their own beds, some of
them honored by millions. Not a single one met justice in the sense accepted in free states across the world. The handful who died otherwise are aberrations, victims of strange events that act as models for nothing.

There is one single exception - the hanging of Saddam Hussein on December 30, 2006
after a careful, lengthy trial carried out under extremely difficult circumstances according to
internationally recognized judicial norms. The state of Iraq has succeeded where the rest of the civilized world has failed. It is a singular achievement, and it will stand.

"There is no more acceptable sacrifice than the blood of a tyrant."
- Giovanni Boccaccio

Who'd of guessed?
The anti-American MSM lying? Non! (a bit of frogy lingo for my multicultural readers.)
AP and E&P: Perfect "Liars" Together
The AP and E&P have teamed up to perpetuate a lie. The details of their own story make that clear for anyone taking the time to actually parse it. The headline screams Many U.S. Troops in Iraq Oppose Escalation, so let's take a look.

Oo la la!

A 19-year-old woman who disappeared was found stuck in an elevator in a suburban Paris housing project for three days, the French press reported Friday.

The daily Le Figaro described the woman, identified only as Safiatou, as vulnerable because she had "problems of confusion." It said she was found dehydrated but alive on Dec. 22.

According to newspaper and television accounts, Safiatou's father had contacted the building concierge Dec. 19 to say his daughter could be stuck in a broken elevator. No alarm went off and the concierge and a repairman found no one when they checked, Le Figaro reported, citing a source close to the investigation.

The technician began repair work the following day. On Dec. 22, the repairman returned to complete the job and heard a soft cry, Le Figaro reported.

On Wednesday, the girl's father, who had advised police of his daughter's disappearance, filed a complaint for non-assistance to a person in danger -- a crime in France -- according to Le Figaro.

Several elevators in the housing project had recently been renovated but not the one in question, according to the news reports. They said that it was unclear why Safiatou did not cry out for help.

alone again....naturally....

Sad, sad man....

silent treatment.....
On his visit to Iraq, Senator Kerry apparently got something like the silent treatment from the troops who are "stuck" there. WDAY's Scott Hennen quotes a message from a friend serving in Iraq:
This is a true story....Check out this photo from our mess hall at the US Embassy yesterday morning. Sen. Kerry found himself all alone while he was over here. He cancelled his press conference because no one came, he worked out alone in the gym w/o any soldiers even going up to say hi or ask for an autograph (I was one of those who was in the gym at the same time), and he found himself eating breakfast with only a couple of folks who are obviously not troops.
What is amazing is Bill O'Reilly came to visit with us and the troops at the CSH the same day and the line for autographs extended through the palace and people waited for two hours to shake his hand. You decide who is more respected and loved by us servicemen and women!

Who are you going to trust?

The liberal MSM/defeatocrats or our troops on the ground?

[M]orale among our guys is very high. They not only believe that they are winning, but that they are winning decisively. They are stunned and dismayed by what they see in the American press, whom they almost universally view as against them. The embedded reporters are despised and distrusted.

This is the battle we Americans are facing!

The anti-American MSM now distorts the facts of this mass murderer to headline a "Trucker" as the murderer.
As if he was a regular "red state" Walmart-style, money grubbing, NASCAR fan, ("racist") white bigot.
The liars in the MSM hiding from us the fact that the "Trucker" is an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT.
Trucker Convicted in Immigrants' Deaths
HOUSTON (AP) - A truck driver was convicted Monday in the deaths of 19 illegal immigrants crammed into a sweltering tractor-trailer in the deadliest human smuggling attempt in U.S. history.
The jury will return on Wednesday to begin hearing evidence on whether Tyrone Williams, 35, should get the death penalty.
It was the second time Williams was found guilty in the case; an appeals court said the earlier verdict was flawed and ordered a new trial.
The federal jury deliberated a little more than four days before convicting Williams on all 58 counts of conspiracy, harboring and transporting for agreeing to drive the illegal immigrants from South Texas to Houston in 2003.

(AP) Truck driver Tyrone Williams, right, looks away from media cameras as he is escorted from the...Full ImageThe more than 70 immigrants packed into the airtight trailer clawed desperately at the insulation, broke out the taillights and screamed for help as the heat climbed inside. Nineteen suffocated or died of heat or dehydration.
Williams abandoned the trailer at a truck stop near Victoria, about 100 miles from Houston.
Defense attorney Craig Washington said his client was not responsible for the deaths because he didn't know the immigrants were dying until it was too late. Washington blamed another smuggling ring member for causing the deaths by overstuffing the trailer.
Prosecutors said Williams was responsible for the deaths because he didn't free the immigrants or turn on the air conditioning.
Williams showed no reaction when the verdict was read. He accepted a long hug from his lawyer before being led away by U.S. marshals. "I am deeply disappointed," said Washington, a former congressman.
Williams, a Jamaican citizen who lived in Schenectady, N.Y., is the only one of 14 people charged in the case to face the death penalty.
Last year, a jury convicted Williams, but he avoided a death sentence because the jury couldn't agree on his role in the smuggling attempt. An appeals court said the verdict did not count because the jury failed to specify his role in the crime.
