Jill Carroll crowned Miss Dhimmi 2006

Image hosting by Photobucket

Baghdad - (AP) In a live satellite broadcast seen around the world, Jill Carroll the soft spoken head scarf wearing Monitor reporter, was crowned Queen of the Dhimmis for 2006. The colorful program was replete with reverence for Allah, and included The Dance of the Newly Headless. As well the wildly popular: Politically Correct Hoop Dance (seen above). Which lead to the spectacular finale wherein Miss Carroll effusively describes the quality and comfort afforded her by Mohammed's bug squad.

She went on to praise the furniture her murderous hosts provided her, and their kind and generous nature in letting her visit the loo without permission! Jill further thanked them in a heartfelt recounting of how they even let her take a shower. The mind does boggle Ladies and Gentlemen. But, the performance which the judges most admired, and was instrumental in her selction as Queen of the Dhimmis for 2006. Was the smiling adoration she shared with the world, in letting us know what a kind and decent bunch had murdered her driver/translator. By not beating her.

As part of Miss Carroll's Queenly duties for the new year, she will continue to promote the soft side of terrorism. And will act in commercials for Dhimmi International, in their new business venture: "Kidnapping Adventures." Where Westerners can book a kidnapping vacation at thirty different militant radical Islamic sh*tholes around the world.

'Pentagon prepares gigantic bunker buster test'

The Pentagon plans to detonate 711 tonnes of conventional high explosives in Nevada in June, in a test designed to gauge the effectiveness of weapons against deeply buried targets, officials say.

"I don't want to sound glib here, but it's the first time in Nevada that you'll see a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas since we stopped testing nuclear weapons," James Tegnelia, director of the Pentagon's Defence Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), told a small group of reporters.

I wouldn't want to be accused of Muslim bashing

You know, always writing about the latest absurdity from the Middle East or Asia. Or unfortunately, lives lost to Allah's boiling cauldron, after being fed into his beheading machine. No Sir, no Maam, I would not want to be accused of that. Like for example, linking to this heart warming little Brussels Journal treatise, with first its below included/linked excise:

'Swedish Welfare State Collapses as Immigrants Wage War.' The Brussels Journal, by Fjordman.

The wave of robberies the city of Malmö has witnessed during this past year is part of a “war against the Swedes.” This is the explanation given by young robbers from immigrant backgrounds when ..... interviewed (boys between 15 and 17 years old).

Almost 90% of all robberies reported to police were committed by gangs. “When we are in the city and robbing we are waging a war against the Swedes.”“Power for me means that the Swedes shall look at me, lie down on the ground and kiss my feet.” The boys explain, laughingly, that “there is a thrilling sensation in your body when you’re robbing, you feel satisfied and happy, it feels as if you’ve succeeded.”

“It’s so easy to rob Swedes.” “We rob every single day, as often as we want to, whenever we want to.” “The Swedes don’t do anything, they just give us the stuff. They’re so wimpy.” “We just see some Swedes that look rich or have nice mobile phones and then we rob them.”

But wait, don't runaway just yet, it gets better:

The number of rape charges in Sweden has quadrupled in just above twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six times as common today as they were a generation ago. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. Ann Christine Hjelm found that 85 per cent of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or from foreign parents.

And yet even more:

This is happening in most Western European countries. European jails are filling up with Muslims imprisoned for robberies and all kinds of violent crimes, and Muslims bomb European civilians ..... this is exactly how an invading army would behave: rape, pillage and bombing.

(There is more, and it is highly recommended).

So Dear Heart, what are we to do ..... what are we to accuse your dear blog host Elmo of? Encitement to commit literary rage? Xenophobia? (oooh, look at the pretty word said the Lib). Paranoia? Hey, call me whatever you want, feel free. I don't profess to have all the answers, or even a few. I'm not even sure I have any answers.

It doesn't mean I'll sit quiet. And watch. And wait. And hope. And pray [not that there is anything wrong with that (smiley face here)]. What the future may bring, it is bringing now. Those in the future looking back, who knows what exactly they may say (that is if anyone is left to think, or to see?). I do know this. It is getting mighty f*cking ugly.

War is here to stay

Image hosting by Photobucket

It is not going away.

Today, tomorrow, next week, month, or year. And overnight militant radical Islam is not going to have a change of heart, they are not going to be the recipient of bequeathed enlightened souls. They are not going to start teaching their children that we all share this planet. Muslim, Christian, Jew, or Arab or American. They will continue to teach hate. They will continue to practice it. They will continue to kill. Against this backdrop are Arab nations balanced upon active war with either Israel or the U.S.. Versus evolving a thumb, and joining the rest of us here in the real world. Not waking in the morning, getting on our knees, facing Mecca, and chantingly praying: "kill the Jew!" ... "kill the infidel!"

We have lives. We live them. Afforded by luck, by hard work, by determination. And even by righteousness. We don't stand atop the mountain and proclaim, but we will climb up it and knock down those who rain blood upon us. Rather than turning away, laying down .... surrendering. The march and approach of the insect parade continues. Better they come with whatever weapons they can devise from claw and deranged existence. Than manufactured in the bowels of hell.

There is no magic. War is here to stay. This is the world. We however can make it clear just who we are. We can do whatever it takes to keep Iran from assuming the mantle, which they beg Allah every minute of every day for. Destroyer of Israel. The fearless Muslim spitting in infidel America's face. Ready to die for their hate. Ready to take the whole Middle East with them. Fantasy? Paranoia? But that it were so. Entertaining thoughts of self doubt, watching and waiting for that thumb to grow out of Mohammed's butt, doing nothing. Prolongs the day whence Islam attempts lordship over all.

The time is now. Yes, it would appear to many that we are lost in half measures, for them a continuing unpleasant unreality. Neither changing things, nor making them clearer. Unable to see a better today, let alone tomorrow (discussions of media aside). But make no mistake, have no doubt, daily dropping E-tab, nightly going to a rave, hiding from that which is real .... condemns four billion other inhabitants of this planet to hell. The world belongs to everyone, even ravers. Only fools and clowns think it not our place to say so. It does not belong to Allah, his prophet, or followers. Standing in the way of those who would sound out the call of two billion feet trying to find four billion heads to stomp? Your right.

We may be wrong .... though it isn't very likely (it certainly would be nice). Go ahead .... continue crying, crying that evil man Bush, that evil man Cheney, those nasty Republicans, Halliburton, Arnie, yadda yadda. All the while Hillary mocks you and Ahmadinejad rejoices. In a world at peril, crying children will not save the day. Run along little libs. Run along now and play.

A Letter of Explanation

To the Students, Teachers, Parents, and Administrators of Hatboro Horsham High School, throughout the year I travel to various schools ...

Image hosting by Photobucket
At the same time demeaning ethnicities and special needs students. I understand how some of my remarks didn't offend everyone in attendance, and if you feel that I didn't offend you, then I am deeply sorry.

Image hosting by Photobucket
When I speak at schools, I try to express my views on difficult topics with brilliance and manners. I try to connect with students, especially the hotties. One student even said to me, “you didn’t say anything,” and that was my sole intent.

Image hosting by Photobucket
I do, however, believe it is very important for me to address many of the points made in the media. First and most importantly, it should be made clear that the only persons I called “retarded” were the people in the back who were unable to hear, the special needs children. I have also been portrayed as someone who spewed profanity for a full hour. To set the record straight, I did say five “clean” words during the speech. O.K.

Image hosting by Photobucket
It has also been said that I insulted faculty, when in actuality, all I was doing was watching, the teachers sit up in the balcony and smoke pot. The students roared with laughter, when I asked the teachers if they brought enough for everyone?

Image hosting by Photobucket
Lastly, in the article it quoted me as saying that the greatest lesson those kids learned was the importance of freedom of speech. That's not true. They learned that any major dude like me, can be a demi celebrity. And that most of the time, people will walk ten feet behind my behind, holding a roll of tp.

Please know that any comment I made in my speech was done in an imaginary cone of silence, without an ounce of purpose. While it may be too late for apologies for me, I hope this in some small way can start to make amends with the rest of you. As an individual who finds daily ground in this world, I am hopeful.

'Morgan Spurlock, Super-Sized Ass'

Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (2004's Super Size Me), spoke at Hatboro-Horsham High School, during its first-ever Health and Wellness Fair. In his hourlong presentation before 700 students, Spurlock joked about the intelligence of McDonald's employees, using an Indian accent as he imitated a cashier trying to figure out how to ring up a Quarter Pounder. He also joked about "retarded kids in the back wearing helmets" and teachers smoking pot in the balcony. There actually were special-education students in the back row. Teachers led them out during the hourlong presentation.

'Brussels Prosecutes Priest for Islamophobia' - Paul Belien - The Brussels Journal

One of the rare churches that is packed every weekend is the church of Saint Anthony in Montignies-sur-Sambre ... to the south of Brussels. (Whose priest) Father Samuel, has been prosecuted for “incitement to racist hatred” by the Belgian government’s inquisition agency, the so-called Centre for Equal Opportunities and Opposition to Racism (CEOOR), because of a remark he made in a 2002 television interview when he said:

“Every thoroughly islamized Muslim child that is born in Europe is a time bomb for Western children in the future. The latter will be persecuted when they have become a minority.”

Last Thursday the Belgian judiciary decided that the priest will have to stand trial before the penal court in Charleroi. He reacted by repeating his time bomb statement and added that he would be honoured if he had to go to jail for speaking his mind.

'Enemies launching psychological warfare: Pres.' -

LONDON, March 27 - Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said enemies intend to get concessions from Iran by launching psychological warfare. "It is high time they would be accountable for their crimes," said the president. "Enemies are against our progress and development and are unhappy with our acquiring nuclear energy."

"They should apologize to Iran for their insults." The Iranian nation following (the) Prophet Mohammad is after peace and tranquility in the world, said the President ... "a number of powerful countries have filled their arsenals with various kinds of weapons, imposing an atmosphere of intimidation on the world. However, we say it is high time the world would be cleaned up of nuclear weapons and peace would prevail over the world."

Can Time Magazine be that stupid?

Between Michael Ware's on the air and unaware, drunken savoring of Bill Maher's salami. And now this precious little tidbit of terminal brain failure. One has to wonder who reads, buys, let alone actually understands the words? They are utterly meaningless. It is one thing to have a point of view, another to disagree. But this is a tragedy. A pervasive mental illness. Somebody hold me, I'm scared.

'Republicans On The Run'

Considering that Vice President Dick Cheney had come a long way to help Florida Congressman Ric Keller raise $250,000 last week, the reception he got in the Sunshine State could have been a bit warmer. After extolling Cheney as "one of the most effective Vice Presidents in the history of the U.S.," Keller launched into all the times he had recently opposed the Bush Administration, including the deal to allow a Dubai company to manage operations at several U.S. ports. And then Keller went right for the punch line: "'Don't be too hasty,'" he claimed the Vice President had pleaded with him. "'Let's go hunting. We'll talk about it.'"

One wonders what planet Tumulty and Allen "reported" from. Where the fook they were? If they were in Florida, with the Veep, I'd say they and the mag they work for, are totally worthless. Gone. Gone. Gone. Better they quit and go to work for the DNC, collect an honest wage. Time? It's possible that they once held the public's trust. They certainly will never hold it again.

See, I wasn't there in Florida, but from this Liston/Reuter's report. I get a feel for what transpired, without even being there: 'Cheney: If Democrats can lead, then I can sing.' Maybe Time's domestic political staff, is as soused as Ware is, while he traipses from bed to bar and back again. In Baghdad. And it isn't like I haven't in this life, met an old timey newspaperman. Back in the day.

P.S. Don't forget. If you are not a soldier, fighting in Iraq, and you support the G.W.O.T.? Then you ARE a chickenhawk. No ifs, no ands, no cute little Alba backsides. So remember (please): The earth is melting ..... the earth is melting .... the earth is melting!

'Al Qaeda Tested Poison Beer, Burger Plot'

CBS - LONDON An al Qaeda terrorist ... told accomplices to sell beer (injected with poison) at soccer games, or poisoned hamburgers from street vending stalls ... Waheed Mahmood claimed during a meeting in Pakistan that he had already tested the poison plan ... (according to Babar). Babar, plead guilty to several terrorist offenses in New York, said the plan was raised by Mahmood during a meeting at (a) Pakistani home, outside Lahore in 2003.

Babar, claimed Mahmood said "you could get a job in a soccer stadium as a beer vendor. You just put poison in a syringe, inject it in a beer can and put a sticker on it, which would stop it leaking, and hand them out." He said he also suggested getting "a mobile vending cart selling burgers, just poison those. You could set up a shop on a street corner and sell poisoned burgers and then all you have to do is leave the area."

The question is .... can it be defeated? I'd like to think so. But more importantly, will it? The assault on truth, and reality by the brain dead left has been rather effective of late. Long term, there is no telling what they can do. But the taste for infidel blood by the insects of Islam will never be quenched in my lifetime. Whether or not future generations submit, or rail against? I do not know.

And, tongues are most certainly a wag, about wonder boy's indiscretions. Of course he toss' in his own coinage.

I want to apologize to National Review Online, my friends and colleagues here at RedState, and to any others that have been affected over the past few days. I also want to apologize to my previous editors and writers whose work I used inappropriately and without attribution. There is no excuse for this - nor is there an excuse for any obfuscation in my earlier statement.

Responding specifically to this:

As we mentioned in our earlier editor's note, staff here at National Review Online are going through all of the pieces Ben Domenech has written for us (the most recent of which appears to have been published in 2002) in light of questions raised in the wake of the debut of his "Red America" blog this week on the Washington Post's website (from which he has since resigned). Our review unfortunately raises questions about several other pieces besides the one we apologized for this morning. To give you a feel for what our staff has found:

A rather hard hitting comment, over at Ben's, in response to his soul expose.

But not too far off the mark (it's the integrity stupid!). Not that I don't constantly pilfer images in order to mock all and sundry. But I don't have to borrow thoughts from anyone ..... what's the point? No, I ain't a knockin Ben, just that I had my fill of integrityless blogging from the Pajamas Media honchos.

A preference for talk shows and soaps "is a marker of something suspicious"

'Daytime TV tied to poorer mental scores in elderly'

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Older women who say talk shows and soap operas are their favorite TV programs tend to score more poorly on tests of memory, attention and other cognitive skills, researchers reported Monday .....
A study of 289 older women without dementia found that those who rated talk shows and soaps as their favorite programs performed more poorly on tests of memory, attention and mental quickness than their peers who cited other types of shows.

What's more, they were at greater risk of showing signs of clinical impairment. For example, compared with women who preferred to watch news programs, those who favored soaps were more than seven times more likely to show signs of impairment on one of the tests, while talk show fans were more than 13 times more likely to demonstrate impairment.

In a move designed to turn seasoned Top End beer drinkers into lean, mean, toad-catching machines, the three Darwin organisations have got together to set up a toad-for-beer exchange.

Anyone over the age of 18 who captures a toad and delivers it alive to the Darwin RSPCA qualifies for a glass of icy cold Coopers beer at the Cavenagh Hotel. `Everyone who takes a cane toad to the RSPCA to be disposed of humanely gets a voucher for a free pot of Coopers ale at the Cav,'' Coopers Brewery's NT sales executive Sean Gould said.

The protest, part of a national campaign to call attention to the human cost of the war, urged Hayworth, R-Ariz., to support legislation reducing the U.S. troop presence in Iraq. "The ways of peace are not bombings and breaking into houses and scaring little children and families,"

How udderly (sic) profound.

Democratic Underground: 'How to spot a baby conservative (whiny children - study)'

Remember the whiny, insecure kid in nursery school, the one who always thought everyone was out to get him, and was always running to the teacher with complaints? Chances are he grew up to be a conservative. At least, he did if he was one of 95 kids from the Berkeley area that social scientists have been tracking for the last 20 years. The confident, resilient, self-reliant kids mostly grew up to be liberals.

Forget militant radical Islam. The march of the brain dead cannot be stoppped. As the sun rises in the morn, and sets in the eve. Stupidity is forever. Evolution? The door to Darwin's waiting room is locked, and these disciples of modernity want to call a locksmith. Only Francoise isn't answering his cell, he's in France protesting streamlined labor markets. With all the other good little apprentices.

Partisan politics in Holland, or ..... be careful what you ask for (workers in Red Light, now wearing Burkas).

The Brussels Journal, Paul Belien
- Wouter Bos, the leader of the Dutch Labour Party (PvdA), is worried about the high number of immigrants in the ranks of his own party. Bos won the Dutch municipal elections on 7 March, by catering (to) the immigrants, who consequently tipped the balance in favour of the PvdA. Almost half the elected PvdA politicians in major Dutch cities where the PvdA is the largest party, such as Amsterdam and Rotterdam, are now Muslims. In an interview last Friday Wouter Bos said that he is worried about this situation.

And, via Real Clear Politics: hatred of Jews is now a hallmark of what's cool in France, even among young immigrants from non-Muslim nations.

Have I said: F*ck those skanky ho's at Google, lately?

'Web site files complaint against Google' ...

'Web site sues over drop in rank' ...

The first link (via Digg), was loading problematically this a.m., the second link (via Jawa), San Jose Merc, does better. What is there to say, I started blogging out of frustration. Not some great desire. I mean there always were better bloggers [Allah, who I bumped into on occasion around the net (mostly seen him hanging at Ace's)]. Always will be. I knew I could never outlink anybody, let alone out-think or write (or even outfunny). Doesn't mean I'm the world's worst blogger. I can tell you this. Google is the sh*t. And no, I don't mean that in a complimentary fashion.

However many months back, I noticed in my daily referral's log, that search engine hits from Google, were no longer present. Needless to say, I said: WTF? At the time, posts of mine on Tookie Williams, the French Riots, or Robert Pershing Wadlow (to name just a few), brought in say fifteen to twenty five percent of my daily looks/peeks/clicks/reads.

It was quite flattering to be a small part of the great big world wide web, me, foogin Elmo. It was cool to see how some indidvidual posts were in fact numero uno, on a few word/term searches. Not that the posts in question were fabuluous or anything, but they were at least acceptable. And well they had a point of view, that lead people to look, and read.

I'm not a lawyer (just barely a blogger), so I can't speculate on the outcome of this particular suit. I do however believe that Google will have their face slapped. Maybe not this singular case, but facets of it will continue to play out in real time, acrross the net, through the years. Google has been exposed as the biggest bully. The dankest skankiest ho. Additionally, homogenizing the web, all eyes going to the same sites/content, all the while collecting tolls along the way! The net will survive. The world will grow and change. The battle with Google will rage for many a year. Take back the web ....

F*ck Google.

According to the Secret Service, Willis replaced references to the late President John F. Kennedy in the song, with George W. Bush’s name.

I want to talk about Kangaroos.

(AP) VIENNA, A kangaroo led police in southern Austria on a snow chase Thursday after it jumped the fence of its cage and decided to explore its wintry surroundings. The marsupial — discovered on a country road about three miles outside the town of St. Veit in the province of Carinthia — kept hopping away from perplexed police trying to rein it in ..... In the end, a local veterinarian helped capture the animal using a stun gun. The kangaroo, which belongs to a breeder in Tirol, was in southern Austria for treatment.

'Clooney donates Oscars swag to hurricane victims'

Actor-director George Clooney, who won the best supporting actor Oscar this year for Syriana, has donated his luxury items-laden Oscars gift bag for auction to benefit US hurricane victims, a leading charity said today.

And isn't it adorable how this same Ozzie news article juxtaposes Clooney's saintedness, with our government's evergreen ineptitude? Positively brilliant.

Katrina money wasted

US federal auditors have said the government wasted millions of dollars in its award of contracts for disaster relief after Hurricane Katrina, including at least $US3 million ($A4.07 million) for 4,000 beds that never were used.

Guests who took home gift bags from the 78th Annual Academy Awards may have to pay $30,000 in taxes on their acquisitions.

The Internal Revenue Service has declared that the bags given count as taxable income.

Jihad: It’s about Abortion and Gays, Stupid! Or Isn’t It?' Is still very much recommended, none the less.

Democrats aren't as stupid as they seem.

'Bush Censure Getting Little Support'

(AP) WASHINGTON Democrats distanced themselves Monday from Wisconsin Sen. Russell Feingold's effort to censure President Bush ... preventing a floor vote. A day of tough, election-year talk between Feingold and Vice President Dick Cheney ended with Senate leaders sending the matter to ... committee.

Republicans dared Democrats to vote for the proposal. "Some Democrats in Congress have decided the president is the enemy," Vice President Dick Cheney told a Republican audience in Feingold's home state. Even as he spoke, Democratic leaders held off the immediate vote ... Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said he didn't know if there ever would be one.

An Israeli bulldozer could be seen demolishing walls outside the prison where a number of Palestinian guards and prisoners including Ahmed Saadat, leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, are still holed up. An Israeli army spokesman said 182 people had been taken from the prison and were being questioned, including 26 wounded.

LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) -- Police cracking down on flying kites arrested more than 1,400 people over three days during a springtime festival held across eastern Pakistan. The kite ban was imposed by provincial authorities after seven people were fatally slashed by kite strings that had been reinforced with wire or glass fiber in the run-up to the annual Basant festival. Islamic hard-liners oppose Basant because they consider it as a Hindu festival.
