Newsflash! Rosie O'Donnell is an idiot
|I know, I know... You're saying "Tell me something I didn't already know..."|
But if you still need covincing check out this clip from The View where she says 9/11 was a fake, she believes the Iranians are the victims, we should impeach the president, and that there is basically no good and evil.
You know... standard stuff...
So the Brits and Americans staged this British hostage situation to instigate a war... Nevermind that the Brits have come out and given the exact coordinates where their boat was. It took Iran two tries to make up coordinates that were in Iranian waters; funny how the first set they publicized were actually in international waters. The second set was two miles away, and, you guessed it, in Iranian waters.
Despite that lie, despite their lies that they'd release the lone female marine held hostage, despite their refusal to allow UN and IAEA inspectors verify their "peaceful" nuclear program, despite the fact that they've taken hostages before, despite their involvement in supplying Iraqi insurgents with weapons that are killing Americans, despite their desire to destroy Israel, one of our greatest allies, Rosie still trusts them more than she does our own government. Well if Rosie trusts them, heck... that's good enough for me... Still, heaven forbid that we actually apply a universal set of standards to Iran's behavior and label them as "bad" or "evil". Those poor Middle East countries just can't get a fair shake from the right wing media machine...
Then Rosie goes all Loose Change on us and all but says that 9/11 was orchestrated by our own government. Starts saying that we should get a couple Harvard physicists who'll say that Tower 7 was brought down by demolition. Hey Rosie: Screw Loose change. How about that Popular Mechanics article debunking the conspiracies propogated by you leftwing moonbat lunatics. You want one or two Harvard elites who'll play to your fantasy. Popular Mechanics consulted more than 70 experts from across the country. But I'm sure that's easy to ignore since it doesn't jive with your warped view.
You want to get pissed, get pissed at the terrorists who killed nearly 2,000 Americans without provocation on 9/11. That's right, no provocation. We weren't in Iraq or Afghanistan. Wackypants Ahmadinejad wasn't even in power yet. So don't blame Bush for doing his best to bring justice to the terrorists and the countries that support and harbor those terrorists.
So what's next Rosie? Global warming is a reality?

Jack Bauer the merciful!
|He kills terrorists and helps the de-de-dee's cross the street... What doesn't this guy do?|
But most important things first. The investigation against the token hot Muslim Republican chick hits a snag when some microchip they found proves she didn't do it. But that's nothing that a little lost evidence can't cure for Richie Rich's cohort from Denver, but when when the Denver slime ball (a new mole??) spills the beans to Milo, dude goes apeshit and plants a big wet one on Nadia. Chloe played the jealous peeping tom. That's hot.
Jack leads his team against the security leak that was feeding the terrorists secure intel. The guy's a glorified security guard and was using his Rain Man little brother to break the security firewalls at CTU. Chernobyl was his ex-boyfriend and when he called begging for juicy intel, Tom Cruise caved and had Dustin Hoffman crack the code.
But when Jack takes Tommy boy down, he befriends the de-de-dee and convinces him to stage a handoff to Tommy's lover boy Chernobyl by promising him an all night marathon of Judge Wapner. And a cookie.
Jack hoped that would stop Curly Bill and his ruthless gang of cowboys from turning Dirkadirkastan into a smoldering crater, but alas, Bill is determined to create more parking in the Middle East. That is until President Chapelle is woken up from his THC induced coma to call off the attack. Curly Bill blames the drugs and asks for Alberto Gonzales to come on by to declare the president incompetent after he finishes firing the rest of the US Attorneys.
And while we wait to see who will play AG Gonzales next hour, please enjoy your weekly Jack Bauer Moment of ZenTM:

Senate votes 50 to 48 to add expiration date to Iraq war
|They also want to make sure all the pork is shoved down our throats before the American public wakes up and realizes the Democrats they elected just a few months ago have totally abandonned the middle-of-the-road positions they took during the campaigns, taking a sharp turn to the left.|
Thank you sir may I have another....
Republican Senators Chuck Hagel (Nebraska) and Gordon Smith (Oregon) voted with the Democrats to pass the bill.
At least we know Bush will veto it, and as of now the cut-and-run Dems don't have the votes to overturn the veto.
Aussie al Qaeda detained at Gitmo pleads guitly
|Al Qaeda operative pleads guilty!! Too bad that will probably lead to a reduced sentence as opposed to death.|
Of course now the talk is that Hicks will be sent to Asustralia, and th anti-war left in Australia insist this military tribunal decision won't be upheld down under. I'm not sure they can overturn it legally... I know Howard would never allow it, but I'm sure the looney left and their lawyers will try to come up with something...

Iran interrogates captured British soldiers
|And why hasn't their been any sort of response yet?|
As much as I'm a fan of Tony Blair, he hasn't adequately responded to this. This is in every sense, an act of war. Diplomatic talks while a great option, shouldn't be the only option. Perhaps a naval blockade or a precision strike on a republican guard training compound... Something that says these soldiers lives are more important than some soundbites and a couple rounds of diplomatic talks. Their capture deserves swift a decisive action.

Iran seizes 15 British soldiers
|Bombing of Tehran starts in 5 minutes.|
At least it should. That's an act of war.
They better get all 15 soldiers back in a timely manner without a hair on their heads out of place. Otherwise you can bet Iran gonna be up to their neck in in shit courtesy of British and US marines.

Audrey's dead... and in other news...
|Jack takes it easy again this hour, takes a nap, gets his busted rib wrapped, cries over Audrey's dead... file. And who spills the beans but none other than the newly widowed Mrs' Romano the one armed wonder doc. Right after she tried to plant one on Jack.|
So Jack takes a personal moment while vice president Curly Bill and his gang of cowboys do everything in their power to nuke the Middle East back into the stone age. First he says, if they nuke us again, we'll nuke 'em back. Then after Jack stops that nuke, he says we're gonna nuke 'em anyway.
Looks like the Arabs just can't win. Sure he's just going to level off a few mountains in Dirkadirkastan, maybe kill about 20 people and 20,000 goats; it's the principle of the thing. Why waste a perfectly good nuke redecorating the landscape and killing off a few goats when you can go for the jugular and wipe the whole country off the map?
Since no one appreciates vice preisdent Curly Bill's decorating tastes, looks like their gonna try to wake president Chapelle from his coma to save the day. We'll have to wait to see how that works out.
But bigger than the impending nuclear holocaust: Nadia's a mole!!!!! Nooooo! Say it ain't so Nadia! What happened to the token hot Muslim Republican chick at CTU!!!
And as we mourn Nadia's impending death at the hands of Jack, I give you our weekly Jack Bauer Moment of ZenTM:

This is the type of scum that our troops are dealing with in Iraq
|And for leftist moonbat like Michael Moore, he can say the Iraqis insurgents are the new minutemen. Well, I'm sorry but I don't remember George Washington using children to get close to the British and then killing them the same as he would kill his enemy.|
And somehow the coalition forces, who are trying to stop this kind of senseless murder get lambasted by the anti-war freaks and the MSM as the bad guys.
That's f*cked up.
US officials report Russia won't give Iran nuclear fuel
|Russia is of course denying the report, but I was in the mood for some good news, so here's a quote from the news piece.|
That's not to say there aren't other problems with the Russian-Iranian nuclear relationship. UN sanctions are preventing completion of the Bushehr plant, Iran is of course refusing to comply with the IAEA requests to verify the nature of Iran's nuclear program, and lastly, Iran is late on their payments to the Russians. Because of the late payments, Russia has slowly been pulling its technicians and engineers off the project.
It's not like it's going to matter anyway. Israel's going to have to save the day again and bomb the plant minutes before it goes active...

More good results from Gitmo
|As much as liberal weenies have complained about Gitmo and how we're violating the civil rights of the prisoners there, we continue to get good results in the form of confessions for attacks perpetrated against the United States and if we're getting confessions, I'm sure we're getting actionable intel as well.|
And here's the latest. Waleed bin Attash, a prisoner at Gitmo just confessed to planning and purchasing materials for the attack on the USS Cole and the two attacks on our African embassies. You remember, those attack on US sovereign territory, before we invaded Iraq and deposed Saddam, before Afghanistan and the removal of the Taliban, before the GWOT, before 9/11; way back when al Qaeda was at war with us even though we'd done nothing to provoke them besides exist. Now of course we're at war with them and the liberal world condemns us for it, but that's another story...
The point of this and the previously released transcript, is an effort by the military to determine whether several Gitmo detainees can be classified as enemy combatants in which case we'd be able to hold them indefinitely.
I vote for indefinitely. How about you?
Man started Esperanza fire for his dog
|It's disgusting. 40,000 acres were burned, he destroyed 10 structures, and killed five firefighters and he did it to free his dog from a local pound.|
Oh and he's accused of starting 10 other fires in the area in the three months before the Esperanza fire.
I hope they consider the death penalty.
California state employees' pensions are funding terrorists
|Beyond the fact that their pensions will eventually bankrupt the state, the California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS) system invests in companies that do business with terrorists. Double trouble...|
Some might say these companies can't be that bad, can they?
BNP Paribas has current investments in Iran valued over $2 billion including directly lending cash to the Iranian government (and they still can't seem to pay back the Russians for their nuclear technology). And on top of that BNP was probed by British intelligence for its involvement in the Iraq Oil for Food scandal.
Siemens AG is a leading telecommunications company that has done billions on dollars of work in Iran on their cell phone and fixed line networks. They also did business with Saddam's regime in Iraq selling him devices called lithotripters. These devices were designed for medical purposes but their electric switches can be used as nuclear detonators (think that will come up in the Plame hearings?).
Eni SpA, an energy company, currently has $4 billion in investments in Iran with stakes in Iran's oil fields of up to 60%. They continue to help Iran develop their extnesive oil reserves.
There are some 400 companies that do business with nations that sponsor terrorism. The Center for Security Policy has a list of the 12 worst offenders. Siemens AG is #1 on that list; BNP Paribas is #4 and Eni SpA is # 6. Other companies you may have heard of that are on their Dirty Dozen list are Alcatel SA, Statoil ASA, Stolt Nielsen, Technip Coflexip, Hyundai, Total SA, Lundin Petroleum, Oil & Natural Gas Corp. Ltd., and PetroChina.
Considering all this CalPERS and CalSTRS representatives currently have no position other than to say that they don't invest directly in Iran. That's brilliant.
I'm still in shock that Saddam was sold technology that could easily be used as triggers for a nuclear weapon...

Senate Republicans stand firm and block the Democrats attempt to force troop withdrawal
|The only Republican that broke ranks and voted with the Dems was Sen. Gordon Smith of Oregon. |
Good work Senate Republicans blocking the Democrats proposal. Setting a set date for withdrawal is like giving the terrorists a date after which they can do whatever they want. It's like Aussie Prime Minister Howard had said about a possible presidential Democratic victory in '08: "If I were running al-Qaeda in Iraq, I would put a circle around March, 2008, and pray as many times as possible for a victory, not only for Obama, but also for the Democrats." Whatever date we set for withdrawal, I'm sure the terrorists' calendar would have a big circle around that date.
But cheer up Democrats. Your party finally did a couple things right. They finally had an original idea, and they actually tried to enact policy based on that idea. Sure it was about as wrong an idea as they could have possibly come up with, but at least it's more than the pointless anti-Bush blather that they usually rely on.

Al Qaeda #3 confesses to plotting 9/11 attacks plus dozens more
|We'd suspected as much for years, but I won't turn down a flat out confession...|
I bet this guy is a wealth of good intel and I hope they get all that they need from him in a timely manner now that he appears willing to cooperate. But what's slightly more interesting in this piece, beyond the confession, is this little quote.
Hmmmm... Now where have we seen that comment before? What liberal idiot has compared the terrorists to the minute men?
Hmmmm... I wonder...
UPDATE @ 3:19pm: Mohommad also claims he personally beheaded Daniel Pearl too.

Jack Bauer finally gets to rest
|This was Jack's hour to recharge after getting knocked out, beat up, and thrown down a flight of stairs.|
Instead we get that spoiled brat, who had the train runnng through his house, Richie Rich running the show. And apparently all that money couldn't keep him out of the military, a government job, or get him a face lift. Man he looked old...
And former president weasel continued to try to weasel himself into the government's good graces by insisting that only he can convince his ex-wife, big boobs Logan to call up the Russian president's boss, his wife, in an effort to stop an international incident at Jabba the Hut's embassy. And props to Red for bagging the former first lady. Sure she's in the looney bin for crazy rich people, but she's his crazy rich lady. That's what's important.
And about the time big boobs was driving that steak knife into her ex-weasel's carotid, Jack was taking a short nap after having a small bite to eat and finally getting a chance to pee after what, 12 hours now? Maybe longer because, really, what are the chances the Chinese let him pee on that flight back to the US...
So after a relaxing, day at the beach for Jack I give you, your Jack Bauer Moment of ZenTM:
That actually explains a lot...
Bush fires 8 US Attorneys!! Oh the humanity!!
|Apparently the Dems never got the memo that as Commander in Chief of the most powerful nation on the planet, if someone under your employ doesn't perform up to expectations, you can fire them. As if these were the first US Attorneys a president had ever fired... The key here is "perform up to expectations" as opposed to "on a whim" or "to avoid your own criminal prosecution."|
But the Democratic Presidential candidates smelled blood and added to the MSM's feeding frenzy over this non-issue. But who would take the the 1st place for the "best shameless grandstanding", "beating a dead horse beyond recognition", and "wasting perfectly good airtime on a major news network for absolutely nothing" contest?
Senator Barack Obama needs to fire his PR guy for not getting him more airtime on this exceedingly pointless issue as well as his speechwriter for not coming up with something with a bit more panache. Well maybe not fire... that's so Republican...
You opposed him from the beginning. Is that really the best you could come up with?
Rookie... You get 3rd place.
Senator John Edwards is outraged and takes 2nd place in our little contest for lumping the firing of US Attorneys to the Patriot Act, Gitmo, and Abu Ghraib. Kudos John!
But Senator Hillary Clinton takes the cake and is our grandprize winner due to her complete and total hypocrisy.
But where's the hypocrisy you ask?
Oh Hillary! How soon we forget! Check out this great op-ed from the WSJ that explains a little better how unprecedented Clinton's firing of all 93 US Attonreys was and not only the Democratic buddies he helped, he quite possibly quashed the White Water scandal he and his wife were up to their necks in as well. Mega-sooper-dooper bonus points for using the executive powers to prevent investigation into your own shady dealings!
This doesn't of course mean that Bush's firings weren't politically motivated. They were. They just weren't of the grotesquely criminal nature the Clintons' were. I mean really... has our society reached a point where it's criminal to fire someone for performing required tasks poorly or not performing them at all?
So sure this could have been handled better. But once you actually start to look at facts as opposed to innuendo, you pretty quickly figure out just how liberally biased the MSM is and just how much hot air Democratic presidential candidates are full of.

Jack Bauer hates foreign diplomatic consulates...
|I think we should support Jack's personal war on consulates. Foreign punks claiming US soil as sovereign property! How dare they! Jack should have every right to break into any building in the US and torture its occupants if it's in the interest of national security. Any building in the world for that matter! Especially ones containing slimy Russians that look like Jabba the Hut who harbor terrorists. I mean really... did you see his saggy skin folds? Eww...|
Anyway, that's two seasons and two wars on Asian consulates. Maybe Jack just doesn't like Asians? Don't see many Asians working at CTU. That's kinda weird... With all the high tech gagdetry around a sourpuss white chick and her British shoe salesman, ex-hubby are the best techies the American government can afford? No wonder the US keeps getting attacked by terrorists!
But at least they will employ hot, Muslim, Republican women, so there is some hope...
And now, without any further ado, your Jack Bauer Moment of ZenTM:
When asked his opinion about the war in Iraq,If only...

Is Obama taking a staunch position against Iran?
|That's certainly what this Chicago Tribune headline makes it seem like: Obama calls Iran threat to U.S., Israel.|
Kinda makes him sound like he's the next JFK... Could it be true?
At least the ChiTrib is honest enough to note a political campaign promise when they see one. Still, Obama says Iran is one of the greatest threats to world peace. So far he's on the money...
Ahh the truth at last... It wouldn't be a Democratic fundraiser without a good ol' fashioned Bush-bash: Iran is our fault! So it's a back-assed view of national security. Yes, Iran's a threat, but because we screwed the region up. Nevermind that the region has been screwed up for centuries and we just got there...
And then the annointed one speaks!
Obama is looking at the strategy completely backwards. Iran is stronger by default because we ahnililated the stronger military threat in the region, and they're in a strategic position now because we already took out Iraq that was in a more strategic position. And it's not like Iran just figured out Israel existed in the past three years since we've been in the Middle East. Israel's been a target since the country was founded, and they've been a target simply because they exist. America has probably done more to inhibit Israel than help Israel. US officials talk alot about our great ally Israel, but most of our foreign policies have been made to placate the Arab street at the expense of Israel. And Obama's audience ought to realize that if he or any other Democrat is elected, we'll be leaving the region shortly after they take office, and Israel will be left alone to defend itself. Again.
So sure Obama sounds great.
It's easy to sound great when you spew misconceptions and half-truths...
UPDATE @ 10:22am: And good luck to Obama when he tries to play the black card to get elected. Especially since his white ancestors owned slaves.
