ill Lockyer, Kalifornia S.S.R.'s Attorney General, hates America, including her Armed Forces and houses of worship. Why else would he authorize this alleged "art" to litter the walls and floor of the taxpayer owned-and-funded public building which he was, for some apparently grossly-mistaken reason, elected to run?
It is an honor to co-host this powerful exhibit and display the talent of our legal community.
Powerful only if you're a pointy-headed liberal lawyer, murderous baby-killing terrorist, or another of America's mortal enemies.
Creative expression stimulates freedom of thought, appreciation for diversity and opens new windows onto the world in which we live.
More like stimulates our enemy's morale and his appreciable praises to Allah for the divisiveness this "Art" Exhibit in Honor of Osama Bin Laden and His Murderous Band of Islamofascists® opens up by removing the manhole cover onto the sewer in which anti-America extremist liberals live, and allowing their piss-and-moan crap to be prominently sprayed all over the walls and flooring inside one of Kalifornia taxpayers' subjects' major public buildings. Osama sends his "t'anks" for that creation.
The collected works of these fine artists—and lawyers—achieve these worthwhile objectives with style and beauty.
Only an ungrateful, radical extremist nutjob—or our terrorist enemies—would characterize pictures of America in the toilet and mushroom clouds over our U.S. Capitol as A Thing Of Beauty™.
The only thing left now is to rename the state capital "Osamamento, Kalif."
Unless you want to encourage our enemy—the heartless, bloodthirsty Islamic fascists—even more.
ell Miller's latest book A Deficit of Decency is a fine read. The following is just one of the book's many great passages I could quote from to recommend it:
Every administration from Jimmy Carter to George W. Bush bears some of the blame for our unpreparedness. Richard Clarke bears a big heap of this blame. Who, after all, had been in the catbird's seat for more than a decade with more than ample opportunity to do something about the problem? Tragically, it was the decade in which we did the least.
We did nothing after terrorists attacked the World Trade Center in 1993, killing six and injuring more than 1,000 Americans. We did nothing in 1996 when 16 U.S. servicemen were killed in the bombing of the Khobar Towers. When our embassies were attacked in 1998, killing 263 people, our only response was to fire a few missiles on an empty tent. Is it any wonder that after a decade of weak-willed responses to murderous terror, our enemies thought we would never fight back? Richard Clarke should have resigned or been fired back in the 1990s. That is when he should have apologized. That is when he should have written his book. That is, if he really had America's best interest at heart.
Some said "we owe it to the families" to get more information about what led up to 9/11. I can understand that. But no amount of finger pointing can bring those victims back. We now owe it to our future families not to encourage more terrorists, resulting in even more grieving families.
Indeed. America must win World War IV; and all of us must do whatever it takes to make sure she does win it.
BBC's new term, so as not to offend any "bombers" in its audience.
n an effort to promote interpersonal understanding, a raising of cultural awareness, and mutual tolerance of increasingly greater diversity, this blogger too will— Wait. "Blogger" is such an alienating term. It dehumanizes the intrinsic self-worth and personhood of certain individuals—that is, fellow human beings—who happen to share a particular belief system regarding modes of expression different from that held by a majority of people in our society, some of whom may, unfortunately, wish to exploit such differences in a manner that publicly depersonalizes the former simply because nearly every member of the bouncy huggable key tapper community (formerly referred to on this site as b_____rs, a term that only the intolerant, racist, bigoted, religious-extremist Right might anti-multiculturally still use) believes in posting her, his, or other opinions in a written, Web-accessible format, rather than vocalizing them in front of, say, water coolers and various other office areas designated for work breaks or any similar gathering of persons at their places of employment, which undoubtedly include a number of very evil corporate, capitalistic entities (excluding the ever-tolerant and overly government-subsidized BBC, of course).
Now everyone has her, his, or other own way of expressing her, his, or otherself, which must be respected, valued, and encouraged if she, he, or other is to feel included and empowered in a completely tolerant society. Some, like our bouncy huggable key tapper friends, prefer a more electronic-based means, while others, like our soft purple fluffy bunny rabbit neighbors, gravitate to more chemical-based ones. Each has its own self-reaffirming value to the respective members of these groups; yet neither may be considered better or less worthy than the other without coming across, if even inadvertently, as biased, judgmental, bigoted, or worse. Both means of expression deserve to be granted equal status and afforded equal weight (whether in fonts or kilograms) when determining exactly what we mean by that word "expression." After all, one person's form of expression might very well be another's act of violence. So who are we to judge? It certainly does not promote a wider sense of understanding between groups by resorting to such judgmentalism.
That being said, one should not assign the slightest derogatory meaning or any negative connotation whatsoever to any form of expression that will in all likelihood include total, unlimited military retaliation by the people of Great Britain against the repressive dictatorship of Syria kissable Damascan cutie pie for its financing and otherwise aiding the expression of soft purple fluffy bunny rabbits in their country. No one has moral authority to berate or elevate anyone's chosen form of expression. The BBC said so.
The Supreme Court nominee of our dreams (and the Dhimmis' nightmares)
all it the Raindead-Rove Strategy™. Once the leftards, including the Dodocrats, spend all their remaining resources trying to defeat Ann's confirmation, they won't have any effective ones left to obstruct President Bush's other nominees. Plus, Ann will turn the Obstructorat Senators into mincemeat as they try to question her "mainstreamness" and judicial temperament during her nomination hearings:
Ted Literal-Ladykiller al-Qennedy: Ms. Coulter, you once said that we should conquer our enemies and convert them to Christianity. Do you believe that such a view is in the mainstream?
Ann: Well, Senator, it's no less in the mainstream than drowning your secretary, leaving the scene of a crime, calling in favors to get government officials to provide cover for one's criminal acts, and still being allowed to serve as a United States senator. The only thing mainstream about that is the depth of the water under which that secretary got drowned by that senator.
al-Qennedy: Well, I never—I, uh, would hardly, Mr. Chairman, call that an appropriate answer. I ask the committee to strike the nominee's comments from the record.
Chairman: You're out of order, senator. The only thing that should get struck out around here is the womanslaughterer I have the grave misfortune of addressing right now.
Then she'll start to warm up:
Chucky Gungrabber Schumer: Mr. Chairman, I know my time is up, but I haven't finished questioning the nominee.
Chairman: You've already had two extensions of time, senator. I don't think the committee is in the mood for a third. Besides, how many times can you say "I don't think you're in the mainstream" without it sounding redundant?
Schumer Joe Wilson's Handler: Just one more question, Mr. Chairman. And it's this: Ms. Coulter, you are obviously not in the mainstream. Now why is that?
Ann: Well, senator, as I said in each of my last fifteen answers to your last fifteen questions which asked the exact same thing, it's this: Compared to someone who's a handler for a known pathological liar and a fraud, trying to obstruct justice by using joint press conferences with him to interfere with a grand jury investigation, all in a way that's thoroughly disgusting to any reasonable member of the public, I believe I am very much in the mainstream.
Joe Wilson's Handler: Mr. Chairman! The nominee is calling into question my integrity as a member of the United States Senate. I ask that you remove her from these proceedings immediately.
Chairman: Again? I thought I already went over this with you. Did she ever mention anyone's name in her answer. Only the guilty would assume she was talking about him. Your request, for the dozenth time, is denied. You make it again and I'll be removing you from these proceedings!
As she steps into the batter's box, a very tired old hand will wind up to deliver her a pitch—straight into the dirt:
Robert Exalted-Cyclops Byrd: Now, Ms. Coulter, it was Cicero—the great Roman orator—who once said that in time of war, the law falls silent. I would hope that, if in the unseeming chance you are confirmed to a seat on our illustrious supreme court, you might hold a different view than his. Is my hope justified, Ms. Coulter?
Ann: Excuse me, senator. I don't believe I understand your question. Are you asking me to relate what some sheet-wearing ancient Roman slave owner had said over two thousand years ago to issues surrounding modern warfare in the nuclear age or in light of the threat to our civilization posed by international terrorism?
Byrd KKKleagler Elf: If you would, please.
Ann: In that case, senator, I will say that no long-dead pagan orator could possibly know what he was talking about given how much the extreme Left in this country today is treasonously trying to use the law itself to give aid and comfort to bloodthirsty terrorists and America's other enemies in time of war and national emergency; how Leftist organizations like the anti-Christian ACLU are berating our brave men and women in the armed forces and totally disregarding their devotion, patriotism, professionalism and honor, by filing lawsuit after lawsuit against them and accusing them of committing such atrocities as not serving captured terrorists any lemons with their religious-dietary tea; or how a former national party has completely aligned itself with billionaire financiers and extremist radicals to beat our nation's wartime leaders over the head with entirely inapplicable international conventions, as well as to demoralize our troops, sow public despair and dissension, and otherwise dispirit us, weaken our resolve, and undermine our country's war efforts, not just for solely selfish, partisan, political power-grabbing reasons, but in ways that directly further the aims and causes of our nation's mortal enemies.
Byrd Senator Sheets: Mr. Chairman, I do not believe the nominee's answer is in the mainstream. Would you kindly instruct her to answer our questions, just as King John had to answer the landowners' concerns when they presented him with the Magna Carta in 1215?
Chairman: I am convinced that the nominee did a fine job answering your question, senator. Besides, your time has expired. It's Senator Feinstein's turn to ask questions.
After Ann hits every one of these Dirtbagorat spitballs out of the park, the judiciary committee will send her nomination to the Senate floor for a vote. Of course the Dhimmis will believe feel they have no choice but to obstruct that democratic process by launching another of their tiresome filibusters.
Eventually they'll exhaust every last resource they have left trying to maintain and publicly justify another judicial filibuster. Once that happens, President Bush can withdraw Ann's name from consideration. The Left will be so thrilled but totally drained over their costly, Pyrrhic victory, they won't be up to obstructing the nomination of either Ted Olson—whose wife Barbara was murdered by the scum terrorists on September 11, 2001—or Janice Rogers Brown.
Because liberals don't like reading things (like facts) but just like looking at the pictures—
could spend eight days a week drinking sweet mint tea and meeting with dozens hundreds of people: current Democrat officeholders (while there still are some, at any rate), former Democrat officeholders (albeit their population growth rate is the highest in America), people associated with George Soros' undermine-our-country business. It would not take long to conclude that it is highly doubtful that any neural transmissions had ever taken place in this object of theirs:
Deadduckorat National Commune chairperson Howlin' Dean asked if I would travel to Liberaland to check out whether any live versions of such an object ever existed there. Before I left Liberaland, I briefed Hideous Rodent al-Qlinton on my findings. I also shared my conclusions with members of her staff ShoveOff.org.
However, they didn't even bother to read my unwritten report because it didn't include any pictures for them to look at.
Using the same evidentiary standard that Spew Pork Slimes and other DeMainStreamMediocrats apply whenever they publicly try to smear a Republican....
he Source™ that gave journalist Judith Miller the name of an alleged "undercover" agent—apparently in direct violation of national security laws—is Joseph C. Wilson IV, former United States ambassador to Gabon, said an investigator in the office of special protector Patrick Fitzgerald, appointed by the Justice Department to inquire into the matter. Meanwhile, a number of persons close to the inquiry have come forward to corroborate the investigator's statement.
Mr. Wilson is the agent's second husband, and was told by her before their marriage that she worked for the Central Intelligence Agency as an undercover agent. At least one legal analyst says that this self-disclosure, which reportedly occurred overseas while the couple was in the middle of a "heavy make-out" on their third or fourth date, is itself a clear violation of law. "Section 426 (of Title 50, United States Code) clearly says that any covert agent who is serving outside the United States or has within the last five years served outside the United States, is not authorized to tell any of her boyfriends that she is such an agent. Any such blabbermouthing bimbo would and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," the analyst said.
Another legal analyst speculates that both Mr. Wilson and his wife are themselves the real subjects of the special prosecutor's investigation. "It's not totally clear in this particular law what the statute of limitations is for disclosing to any reporter that your wife works (undercover) for the CIA," she said. "But since that would constitute a serious, criminal breach of national security, it's likely that a prosecution is not restricted at all" by normal statutes of limitations.
Both Mr. Wilson and his wife refused to return multiple phone calls seeking their comments on the analysts' determination that both may be in violation of the Espionage Act and other relevant laws.
Mr. Wilson, nonetheless, has not stopped disclosing to whomever might listen to him that his wife was a covert CIA agent. As recently as last week he again disclosed this information, this time by email which he sent to an Internet commentator. The commentator then published the email's contents where it could be read by anyone who has access to the World Wide Web.
A source close to the special prosecutor's inquiry said the available evidence appears to show that Mr. Wilson also disclosed his wife's undercover identity to Spew Pork Slimes journalist Judith Miller. As that source asked, "Who would know better that she was such an agent, and had more motive to embarrass an administration he was very hostile to by disclosing her identity to the one newspaper most desperately trying to embarrass it too, and make it look like a leak from someone else, other than her husband?"
Ms. Miller is currently serving an eighteen-month jail sentence after being convicted of willfully defying a duly issued court order. "If someone stalking a woman disobeys a judicial order to stop and breaks into her apartment and kills her, he would be just as guilty of contempt (of court) as (Judith) Miller is," said a court observer who attended Ms. Miller's sentencing hearing.
Colleagues of Ms. Miller who have been very critical of her reporting in the past, are now staunchly defending her violation of court orders. "She has resorted to civil disobedience to uphold her profession's honor," said New York magazine writer Franklin Foer, who just last year described Ms. Miller as "difficult... (and) much more vulnerable to journalistic sins than her more affable colleagues."

I'm praying you have a safe and productive journey of exploration, and our Nation a successful Return to Flight.
Could you at least wait until all the victims' bodies are buried before trying to wrench some politcal advantage from their deaths?
he London Massacre was hardly a day old when snobgressives began picking through the severed arms and legs and mangled bodies of the dead and those still clinging to life, ghoulishly looking for any bloody pound or even ounce of flesh to extract from our wartime leaders.
Abu Musab al-Zitcoward, the Jordanian militant head scum terrorist, must be laughing in his VX nerve oil:
We argued...that the attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq would increase the threat of terrorist attack in Britain....Londoners have now paid the price of the government ignoring such warnings.
No, that wasn't Zitcoward crowing, mere hours after the Act of War. It was former Labour MP George Galloway.
This massacre was no shot across the bow, meant to scare Britons so that they'll retreat from Iraq and the other fronts of World War IV. It was aimed right between the eyes, with one clear, simple message: "No matter what you do, regardless how many radical imans you welcome into your country and tolerate, despite how much you may wish to fight or prosecute or stand up, offer therapy, or even surrender to us, we will come after you—with bombs, knives, airplanes, and anything else we can get our hands on—and we will kill you, we will kill your women, your children, your old people, your whites, your blacks, your Jews, your Muslims, and we will keep on killing you until all of you are dead or we are."
That's who and what our enemy is. With them is where all the blame lies.
Instead of inadvertently (and not so inadvertently) helping them, liberals, with your we're-to-blame ignorance, try showing some respect at least for the people whose lives were destroyed only a day ago by that very real enemy of our civilization.
A mutual pledge renewed in the Year of our Lord two thousand and Five and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and Thirtieth
nited States of America.” A name first uttered by our nation for herself 229 years ago today. Free and independent states. United by a common ideal and purpose: Protecting and defending individual liberty for all Americans against every tyrant and would-be despot who might ever dare to take it from any of us. Our birthright of freedom, fought for and won through patriots' blood and sacrifices, now had a fitting title. United States of America.
May we continue to strive making that ideal a reality for all freedom-loving individuals everywhere, and thus prove our country even more deserving of this incomparable name!
In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.__________We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.__That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,__That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.__Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world._____He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good._____He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them._____He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only._____He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures._____He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people._____He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within._____He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands._____He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers._____He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries._____He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance._____He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures._____He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power._____He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:__For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:__For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:__For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:__For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:__For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:__For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:__For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:__For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:__For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever._____He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us._____He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people._____He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation._____He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands._____He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.__
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do._____And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
