Allman Brothers Band - "Jessica" Live - 1982


Let not the unbelievers think that they will ever get away. They have not the power so to do. Muster against them all the men and cavalry at your command, so that you may strike terror into the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides them who are unknown to you but known to Allah. Q 8:59

UN Falls to Stealth Jihad

Insults to Islam are more grievous than bloodshed. Q 2:192

The Organization of Islamic Conference, the geopolitical face of the stealth jihad, has finally succeeded in taking control of the United Nations. This past week, the "august body" passed a resolution called "Combating Defamation of Religions", which is touted as being aimed at preventing religious violence (as if signatories lack criminal codes), but is really aimed at enshrining laws against "blasphemy", in other words, criticizing (telling the truth about) Islam.

" "It provides international cover for domestic anti-blasphemy laws, and there are a number of people who are in prison today because they have been accused of committing blasphemy," said Bennett Graham, international program director with the Becket Fund, a think tank aimed at promoting religious liberty.
"Those arrests are made legitimate by the UN body's (effective) stamp of approval." "

Readers of this blog may recall the case of Seyyed Parwiz Kambakhsh, who is rotting in an Afghan prison for downloading and distributing an article on women's rights from the Internet, which in Pres Hamid Karzai's fair land is "blasphemy".

Now, the UN has moved to back up Islamic regimes in this trampling of human rights.

Here's the kicker: "Passage of the resolution is part of a 10-year action plan the 57-state Organization of Islamic Conference launched in 2005 to ensure "renaissance" of the "Muslim Ummah" or community."

Some "renaissance".

Heavens to Murgatroyd

Derek Corrigan celebrates three more years of getting his picture taken. A measly 33,000 of 200,000 eligible voters bothered to turn up.

Okay so it's been a few days. I do my very best to avoid subjecting readers to torrents of obscenities, profanities and all manner of cursing and swearing. So it took me a few days.
I knew full well that Dolittle Corrigan would get back in, but a clean sweep for the NDP, I mean BCA? Now I know for sure that denizens of The People's Happy Democratic Republic of Burnaby like crime, like litter and graffiti, like dealers and hookers, grow ops, drug labs and a bunch of puffery from City Hall, while the new top cop spouts BS crime stats instead of pushing for desperately needed reinforcments.
How long, Lord, how long?

Afghan War Progress Update

NATO troops on patrol in Kandahar City

While we're daily fed the line that the war in Afdumpistan is not only winnable (i.e. we can save the Afghans from themselves) but its all going most splendidly indeed.

Afghan schoolgirls sprayed with acid

Three Afghan schoolgirls suffered serious burns when attackers sprayed acid in their faces as they walked to school.

Last Updated: 12:30AM GMT 13 Nov 2008

Two men riding a motorcycle attacked a group of 15 girls with an acid-filled water pistol in the southern city of Kandahar, leaving six needing hospital treatment, three of them for serious injuries.

A government official said the attackers ripped off the girls' headscarves before the attack and another report said those wearing the full-length burqa to cover themselves had been left untouched.

It is not known who carried out the attack but girls were banned from going to school under the Taliban regime between 1996 and 2001. ..."

Uh huh. And nowadays they're just sprayed with acid for ...
Please to note that this did not take place in some tribal run backwater, no, this was in downtown Kandahar for crying out loud. If they don't get it there, where the hell do they and what does that say?

The next big act in this unceasing tragedy is going to be when newly-minted Pres Barry Obamessiah removeth his warriors from Sumer, from Nineveh and the Land of Ur, oops, I mean Iraq, (I am getting on) and sendeth them into the unholy mess that is Afdumpistan, which is not, repeat not going to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century no matter how much kuffar blood is spilt there.

Attention ... All personnel ... Incoming Wounded ...

Oh, hello, Hawkeye, hello, Trapper, sure, I'll have one, I shouldn't, but what's the difference now, huh? ...

What? That wasn't M*A*S*H* I somehow dropped into?
No no, just a visit to RCH emerg. Heavens to Murgatroyd, patients everywhere, I mean in stretchers, beds, chairs, sick and injured everywhere, and one doctor and a couple of nurses trying to be everywhere and help everyone.
Endless money for the Olympic boondoggle, but an extra doc or a couple more nurses in the ERs?
Not a priority like pumping up the real estate profits of Poole et al.
Or do you still doubt that's what its all about?

Ignorance of the Law Now a Defence?

Richard Chang, BCA candidate for Burnaby council
may or may not understand how elections work in BC

This despite having lived in Burnaby for 15 years, being a "TV host for Fairchild TV and movie director and producer" according to his bio, and a member of the Parks, Recreation and Culture Commission.
Yet, there was a group of Chang's supporters apparently canvassing voters at an advance poll. Chang himself had to be asked to leave after he'd voted.

"Ann Lorentsen, the city's deputy chief elections officer, said staff had to ask Chang to leave the centre after he voted Saturday morning.
"He didn't seem to understand that he couldn't hang around in the voting area," Lorentsen said. "He left, but some of his supporters stayed behind." Lorentsen said she saw one of Chang's supporters speaking to voters as they entered the lobby of Shadbolt Centre. "I have no idea what she told them because they weren't speaking English," Lorentsen said. ...

Later, elections staff saw Chang and his supporters speaking to voters in the parking lot of Shadbolt Centre, Lorentsen said. The lot is within 100 metres of the voting area, she said.

"They were talking to people and escorting people in to vote," Lorentsen said, adding it was 2 p.m. before elections staff got Chang and his supporters to leave the parking lot. ..."

Chang maintains he both knows the rules and did not break them.
Uh huh.
B.C.'s Local Government Act covers municipal elections. It states that a person cannot "canvass or solicit votes or otherwise attempt to influence how an elector votes" within 100 metres of a voting place on election day or during an advanced vote.

It also says, "other than for the purpose of voting, a candidate must not be present at a voting place or special voting opportunity while voting proceedings are being conducted."

Seems pretty cut and dried. Yet, there were Chang and his people.

Lee Rankin of Team Burnaby is calling for a police investigation and I agree. Rankin says he's outraged and I agree, I am too.

The Act provides for up to a year in the Skookum House (that's prison, Mr Chang) a fine up to $5k, and how about a six month ban on one holding an elected office at the muni level.

However, city staff have taken it on themselves to not pursue the matter "because Saturday was the first day of voting and because Chang seemed to misunderstand the rules." according to Lorentsen.
One can't help wondering how often and how far these people empower themselves to exceed their authority.

BCA Mayor Dolittle Corrigan of course figures his guy has suffered enuff. "I think he was chastised quite appropriately by elections staff,".

Well, Mr Mayor, the Act does not empower staff to settle this with a scolding, it clearly calls for a police investigation immediately.

Calling BS on Crime Stats

You're an intelligent person (most of you, the rest, I get your emails too). You wonder why it is that what yourself and those you know experience and observe of the incidence of crime just doesn't seem to jibe with the constant refrain from governments and the press releases are stories; just rip and run (cut and paste) MSM: crime is always down, and besides, canerduh is the safest place on Earth; why, just imagine if you lived in that hell hole to the south etc...

Perhaps you've been to yon hell hole (its just south of White Rock) and found you didn't spend all your time dodging bullets. I know I have.
Have another look at the graph up there.

"Over the past few decades, the advent of victim surveys has facilitated a broader understanding of the crime problem as well as a better assessment of its burden on citizens at the international level. While in the past only police and criminal justice data were used to measure crime, it is now widely acknowledged that such information alone is not sufficient and should be integrated with victim surveys results. Surveys of victims of crime are a more comparable tool to assess risks across countries and world regions. The International Crime Victim Survey (ICVS) represents the major research project in this respect, with more than 150 surveys done in over 80 different countries since 1989. ..."

What that means is no politicians spinning smoke and mirrors, never mind the plea bargains (take a hatchet to half the neighborhood and get it down to "careless use of a horticultural implement") and all that case thrown out on a technicality stuff.

If you've had this vague feeling you've been getting (how to put this politely?) bullshitted about the effectiveness of canerduh's joke of a criminal justice system, there's something to consider.
While you're at it, have a look at this :

"Selected contact crimes - robbery, sexual assault and robbery with force." Nasty, nasty, scary stuff, huh?

Canerduh just doesn't seem to measure up on the old personal safety meter, does it?

There's plenty more where this came from and your correspondent, at least, is digging in, you're invited. And you're also invited to consider throwing all this at some pol the next time the orthodox crime catechism begins.

Hope for the Change of the Hope of the Change

Huge roar of approval when Obamessiah's victory is announced at the Canucks game. Polls showing over 80% of canerdians rooting for the Saviour Barry O.
All this for a guy who has promised to put the boots to canerduh's economy on America's behalf?
If you ever wondered about how much there may be to that whole 'dumbing down' phenomenon, there you go.
Because if Obamessiah has his way, a lot of these fools will indeed be begging for change.
