  • Saudi Arabia advertises for swordsmen as execution rate soars

    Chop-Chop Square! Brings back memories. Don't be shopping in the big Souk on a Friday, Infidels. You are liable to be grabbed by the Religious Police (The "Mutts") in order to serve as a witness to a beheading.

    You see, the ultimate punishment is to gaze upon the face of an Infidel before the sword of Allah falls. If you are really a bad dude, the Infidel face will be a woman with blue eyes! Say, I wonder if the Saudis have thought of encouraging illegal Mexican immigration .... you know .... to do the jobs Saudis won't do?

    Saudis ain't what you would call enthusiastic about work, anyway. As one of my Saudi guys said to me, "Hey, we didn't work when we were poor, and we're not about to start now that we're rich. That's what you people are for!"

    LT, why focus on this innocent generation?

    Bill got hisself a whole passel of half-brothern and Cistern in Texas! That is if one accepts the story of the Blythe Paternity. Ya see, Bill Clinton's officially named baby-daddy Blythe, just happened to be (a) in Italy fighting NAZIs until three months before Billie's arrival, and (b) already had him a wife and children in Texas. BTW, they never divorced.

    What really happened is baby Mommy Virginia, party animal and nursing student, came back from Louisiana with just a wee bit more than the proverbial banjo on her knee. Uncle Ray, the Hot Springs fixer, had this Blythe guy in the morgue, where he was in no shape to protest a sort of paperwork shot-gun wedding. Voilà, history was made.

    ......black people in Ferguson didn’t have a clue they were being manipulated.....

    So what else is new? For decades, the CPUSA struggled with the problem of how to turn America's Negroes into the proletarian street mob they needed for revolution.
    The answer was a very capitalist solution: buy'em.

    First, of course, they had to figure out how to use the power of the federal government to deconstruct family life and public institutions like the schools. Missions accomplished!

    The Loretta Sanchez fraud was a carefully planned cyber attack and was the first time completely imaginary voters were computer generated and registered. What was noteworthy was that the virtual voters were tied to actual persons, living and dead, as if they were family, and given family addresses in the same virtual neighborhoods. This technique has been refined and developed since. These virtual voters were voted as needed by absentee ballots. (Well, one can safely say they were absent, I suppose.) More old-fashioned forms of vote fraud were also much in evidence.

    However, B-1 Bob, who often lectured us on maintaining proper cylinder head temperatures in the FW 190, was slow to catch on and even slower to ask the Republicans for help, which of course, was denied. B-1 Bob was not a good listener. Talking with him was like watching History Channel reruns that never stopped. He didn't wake up until the Mexicans stole HIS job.

    Chief DNC fraudsters at the time were Dick Daley, Jr. of Chicago, and professional race grievance hustlerslut Donna Brazile (her mantra, "just get us close, we'll do the rest") Not only would she and often did steal the pennies from a dead man's eyes, she would make sure he had voted at least 5 times and was registered for absentees in several precincts before they buried him. And a complete bitch besides.

    You cannot trust the vote count in any large city in the country. Bring back English literacy tests, property ownership requirements, and poll taxes, keep women at home on election day, end motor voter, ban absentee ballots, and we might have a chance of extending the life cycle of this republic.

    This is the very same votefraudslut that trickscrewed B-1Bob Dornan out of his seat with illegal alien voters, dead illegal alien voters, registering 'virtual' voters at 'virtual' Sim City-created addresses, (seems they were all relatives of the aforementioned dead Mexicans), felons voting, multiple voters, fake absentee ballots. That election was so rigged, the Democrats could have put Charlie Manson in.

    The Democrats sent a special squad out to manage this triumph of vote fraud, and poor old B-1 Bob couldn't get anyone to listen. Poetic justice, I guess. He wouldn't listen when we told him that illegal immigration was swamping the state. Seems he loved "his Mexicans" who waited on him hand, foot, and lawn. Chauffeur, cook, Nanny, Maid, Gardener. Olde California living! B-1 had the knack of turning any conversation into a discourse on the ballistics of the 30-06, WWII German fighter planes, and the folly of the Maginot Line. Lovable old fossil, but a useless Republican toad when the chips were down. Thought he owned the seat.

    This Sanchez fraud slut also had a sister in Congress. "Hey meester, juwanna meet my seester?" Another fraudster. But hey, what difference does it make. CA has at least 500,000 faulty registrations and a very good estimate says 80 seats in the state legislature were gained through fraud. Welcome to Aztlán, Gringo.

    One would NEVER get this by reading what our FR Catholics type!

    American Catholics might be a little less enthusiastic had they ever had the historical experience of doing a little time in a Papal jail. Just not part of the history here.

    I believe there is no Christian church of any denomination in which one cannot have the personal experience of Christ and to be saved by Him. Might be harder in some than in others. To argue over dogma, while most enlightening, needs to be put in perspective. The beheaders and crucifiers of Islam don't give tinker's dam whether one follows the Pope, Joel Osteen, Rev Al Sharpton, or the Archbishop of Canterbury; or any other Christian leader. We are Christians and they want to kill us.

    The 95 theses Luther nailed to the door were not originally designed as direct in-your-face challenge to the Pope. It was just the standard traditional university challenge to a debate on the subject. The door was the University bulletin board, Fr. Luther,OSA, a scrupulously zealous priest, was a faculty member. So he posted it right up there with the "Rooms to Rent," and "Lost Briefcase" announcements, probably little suspecting that this was going to turn into one of the most important religious documents of all time!

    In fact, if anything, the Pope at the time mostly agreed with Luther, and ignored the whole thing as a "monkish quarrel." "No big deal," thought the Pope. "Of course indulgence peddling is wrong. Just send the money." He never saw the obvious. Of course the Romans were incredibly corrupt, and had more rackets going than Al Capone, but what really got the ball rolling on the Luther Reformation was that local princes were tired of paying off the church and as the dispute developed, were quick to jump on the bandwagon.

    In modern times the Vatican has pretty much thrown in the towel and said, "All right already, Fr. Luther was right about Grace, Indulgences, etc. We were really bad boys back then. Can't we all just get along now? Forget the money!" So there has been a little bit of a rapprochement. Some married Lutheran pastors have even become married Catholic pastors.

    In general, IMNVHO, Fr. Luther was not as Protestant as a lot of Protestants may wish. For example, he had a life-long devotion to the Virgin Mary. But he did get more Protestant as time went by. But even at his best, he was no Knox or Calvin.

    there was no gun found,
    and no gunpowder residue on the hands
    >of either of the deceased.

    The LA Times article covered these troubling aspects fairly well.
    No gun found: It was a long chase and of course the gun might have been ditched.
    No gunpowder residue: not that unusual.

    These chase scenarios are notorious for getting the cops' blood up, which is no defense. However, the perps could have stopped at any time, the original gunshot aimed at the police came from their car, and all things considered, from the outside looking in, this could go either way. The defense, in waiving a jury trial, must either feel they have some strong exculpatory evidence, or are seeking to minimize the sentence if their case is weak. Could be the old "guilty with a good explanation."

    The one fact that does remain is that, given the police records of both the dead men, it is a mystery as to why they might be made heroes by their neighbors. They were both the sort of men we pay the police to forcibly separate from the rest of us.

    Here's a useful compendium of the facts from the LA Times ...not too slanted

    It began with a car chase after Russell, 43, fired a gun at police near Cleveland's downtown Justice Center, prosecutors said. Russell sped off with Williams, 30, in the passenger seat, starting a pursuit that eventually drew more than 100 police officers.

    It is unclear why Russell refused to stop. Both driver and passenger had prior convictions and had struggled with mental illness and drug abuse, but neither was known to be violent, according to Joseph Frolik, chief spokesman for McGinty.

    In case it comes up in conversation, apparently firing pistols at cops is no longer considered "violent." Oddly enough, it took a year and a half to bring charges against the cop.

    Sarge, underestimate Joe Biden at your peril. This guy is slicker than goose shiite on an ax-handle. He knows where every body in Washington is buried, who killed it, and why. If the polls look really bad, the Dems just might need him as a sort of throw-away candidate. In which case the ticket (as I never tire of predicting) will be:

    For POTUS: Joey "Plugs" Biden
    VPOTUS: Michelle Robinson

    Here's a setup: They campaign their asses off, at which Joey Plugs is very good. They lose. No harm done. Or ....they win when the "Republicans" come up with Jeb Dolebush and Condoleeza Rice or a utility VP yet to be named.

    Joey succumbs to infected hair plugs and Michelle Robinson becomes POTUS. History making moment. First woman POTUS, First all-Black POTUS, Largest feet of any POTUS in our history! You may remember Ms. Robinson? ... Jesse Jackson's cousin? ... Formerly married to Barry Soetoro? About mid 2016, they divorced with Reggie Love named as a co-respondent. The wave of female sympathy for her plight as a betrayed woman might just bring enough votes to the ticket to sweep her and Joey Plugs in!

    Toto, you ain't in Kansas anymore.

    There is no such thing as our idea of a government.. The country actually functions the same way a well-run crime family runs. One Prince with a government post may well be funding terror. Another with two kids at Arizona State, may well be our "friend," and have an important government post himself. Both may have 4 wives at a time and upwards of 50 children, each male with his own piece'o'the family action, down to a filling station, or a fried chicken franchise, all part of the 'family' racket. They are densely intermarried and suffer from various birth defects ... e.g., so many congenital kidney problems that every street corner strip mall has a dialysis storefront!

    Every Prince has a piece'o'the action, has a crew, and kicks a piece upstairs. There is constant jockeying to stay in power and improve one's position in the Royal Family. The KSA is not really a country. It is the personal estate of the House of Saud ... Saudi Arabia.

    ISIS takes Cleveland.

    They already have Toledo. Now that was minor setback.

    The Pope is only infallible when speaking ex cathedra on matters of faith and morals.

    >Ex cathedra meaning "On the Throne," in various classical languages.

    The intense disrespect you evince for my serious theological propositions is heretical in the extreme. Drink any more, unholy sir, and I shall have you anathematized.

    However, I do commend your patience in letting your pagan brew 'mingle' for week and The Bretheren (and Cistern) will need your GPS coordiantes.

    Give the Catholics some credit. They had the only game in town until a whole lot of people learned to read and write. Then the Catholics gave them something to read, write, and argue about.

    Protestants recognize neither the authority of the Pope, nor each other in liquor stores.

    In either case, the authority of the Pope does not extend to liquor stores.

    Let me define "Elite" fighting unit.

    All Soldiers have a uniform supplied by us. Shirt, trousers, trick unit badges ... the works.
    All soldiers have those way cool sand-colored combat boots supplied by us
    All Soldiers have sox supplied by us.
    Most élite troops will be wearing underwear supplied by us. Except those going commando. (Which is ultrs elite)
    All Iraqi soldiers carry AK 74s, supplied by us. (Made in Yugoslavia or Rumania) Ditto RPGs.
    The elite units have Abrams Tanks with instructions to leave them full of fuel and running when they bug out.
    But what truly makes these troops ELITE, the Muslim Military Crème de la Crème, is that we supply every man jack of this fine body of men with a jaunty beret!

    The fighting motto of the Elite Units of the Iraqi 'Army' says it all.

    We shall never leave our brothers behind!

    Your point is well taken.

    However, if all this were known, how does one explain that preposterous armistice or whatever the hell it was, arranged by Schwartzkopf et al?

    We left them armed and dangerous ... and then tried to reel them back in ... or suppress them?

  • Was Raul Castro Joking About His Return to the Church?

    Raúl is a far more fervent Marxist than Fidel ever was. An admirer of Mussolini, Fidel actually thinks highly of the philosophy behind the Fascist state, or so I am told. But Raúl and Che were reputed to have personally executed hundreds of political prisoners. That is, personally shooting them with their personal weapons.

    In regard to Pope Francis' rapprochement with this horrible regime with the blood of hundreds of thousands of Cubans on its hands, with thousands of political prisoners held in brutal prisons right now ... gives the appearance of papal support. I realize that the welfare of the Cuban Catholics is the Pope's primary concern, but then I suspect the influence of santería is at least as great. I wish the Pope would issue a strong anti-communism, ant-totalitarian message, as did Popes before him.

    Nicotine itself actually has a few benefits, or so I thought. E.G., Vitamin B-6 is Nicotinic Acid. Isn't it the other crap in cigarette smoke that is the problem?

    I am trying to pressure the nicotine fiends of my acquaintance to try these little gizmos, but they are mighty resistant. Me, I never smoked, but now am hyper-allergic to tobacco smoke in any form and can't even go into smoky bars any more, which was a favorite pastime, or go into the tobacco-reeking homes of my best pals!

    This is series!
