Al Qaeda Subway Bomb Plotter Confirms Long Held Suspicion that He is Fool by Opting to be His own Lawyer
I guess the old proverb is true:
An Al Qaeda wannabe terrorist linked to the New York City subway bombing plotters has decided he will act as his own lawyer at his upcoming trial in Brooklyn Federal Court...Yer cornhole: it won't settle for an amateur defense.
Naseer, 28, shared the same email account and Al Qaeda handle as the three Queens men — Najibullah Zazi, Zarein Ahmedzay and Adis Medunjanin — who were ready to detonate backpack bombs in crowded subway trains in Manhattan. Naseer, a Pakistani national, was a member of a terror cell in England and was allegedly going to carry out an attack — referred to in code as “the wedding” — in Manchester in 2009.
National Review's Charles Cooke Gets Hate Mail
From an intellectual, no less!

The best I could tell from my limited, Conservative intellect is that the email has something to do with THIS article.
Mr. Cooke was kind enough to critique the email so as to benefit the sender in the future.
Immigration In An Obama World
While the Obama Administration welcomes hundreds of thousands of diseased, uneducated illegal immigrants with free health coverage, schooling, legal aid, housing, and welfare, it is turning away educated, self-sufficient immigrants who are trying to enter our country legally.
One of those individuals is Waghmare Vishal, a computer programmer from India. Vishal is a senior engineer for Maxxton USA, a software company based in Dallas.
Vishal, who lives in India, applied for a visa so he could help Maxxton expand their business interests in the United States. But the State Department turned down Vishal's visa.
"The consulate thought that he was a risk because he might not go back to his home country," said Chris Connar, Maxxton's vice president for sales and marketing. "It's frustrating – very frustrating. This is a government-sanctioned problem." [...]
And that brings me to the story of a newlywed couple from Denver...
The husband is an American. His wife is British. She applied for a spouse visa in April 2013. As of this writing, they are still waiting for an approval...
The State Department demanded that the bride prove she would not be a financial burden to the country...
The bride has an English degree. Her husband is the co-owner of a store in the Denver area. She said they were required to prove that they made enough money to live above the poverty threshold.
This is truly a bizarro-world in which we live.
Flat Fatima Attempts Big Pallywood Come Back
There's nothing like a summer blockbuster sequel. Especially when the main character is so well-known and beloved by all.
But personally, I liked the original better, even if some complained that it was all CGI with no real plot or character development.
Thanks to Fatima's Jewish agent and The Hollywood Reporter.
And Yet a Third "Speak-O" of Obamacare Architect Emerges
One might just say a pattern is emerging here.
jHarmony: Online Dating for Jihadis!
Aisha is a Virgo, likes long walks on the beach, and Death to Israel!
Some things are so surreal, that even Hollywood would have a hard time buying the script:
Islamic State insurgents have opened an office in northern Syria where single women and widows can register to marry fighters from the radical al Qaeda offshoot, a monitoring group said on Monday.
The office in al-Bab, a town northeast of Aleppo city, records the names and addresses of the women so that Islamic State militants can go to their families and make a formal offer of marriage, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Mormons Riot, Kill Woman & Baby Over "Book of Mormon: The Musical" Blasphemy
Yeah, I know, but if you can think of some other way to snark this without recycling the obvious joke then please feel free to start your own blog:
Rioting erupted as rumours spread that a young Ahmadi man, identified as Saqib, shared a blasphemous picture on Facebook, Pakistan Today reported.Since these are Ahmadis being murdered in the name of the Religion of Peace, Ahmadis consider themselves Muslim, but some Sunni Muslims do not, then maybe the better headline analogy would be something like, "Mormon Woman and Baby Murdered by Presbyterians Riots for Blasphemous Facebook Post"?
It allegedly included the Kaaba — the cuboid building at the centre of the Grand Mosque in Mecca that Muslims face in prayer – and contained nudity.
A mob reportedly gathered outside Saqib’s house and started protesting.
When they moved to a doctor’s house where Ahmadis were thought to be hiding, someone inside reportedly shot at the mob and injured the man who had started the Facebook rumour.
The group then set five Ahmadi houses on fire, killing the woman and children and injuring several others.
In any event, you get the picture.
Hamas Rocket Hits Hospital, Press Instantly Blames Israel
A short while ago, terrorists in Gaza fired rockets at Israel. 1 of them hit Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza. The other hit Al-Shati refugee camp.— IDF (@IDFSpokesperson) July 28, 2014
But that's not what you'll read in the wires.
AP thinks the dead babies will be a BIG STORY.
A Palestinian health official says at least 10 people were killed and 46 wounded in an Israeli strike on a park in the Gaza Strip.AFP reports the strike on the hospital as Israeli and reports dead children based on the hearsay report of one, count them, one Palestinian doctor. Because doctors can't be terrorists. Never mind Zawahiri, they just can't be.
An Israeli missile struck a building inside the compound housing Gaza's largest hospital on July 28, medics and an AFP correspondent said.The only fact reported in these stories is that the press hates Jews.
The attack hit a building close to the main gate of Shifa hospital in Gaza City, medics said, with an AFP correspondent reporting damage to the inside of the gate itself.
Seven children were also killed when an Israeli missile slammed into a playground in a Gaza City refugee camp, a doctor at the city's main hospital said.
The missile struck a group of children running around at a public playground in the beachfront Shati refugee camp, a doctor from Shifa hospital told AFP.
Hamas doesn't have to worry when Palestinians die from friendly fire, the press will report that the Jews killed those babies.
Assad killed 6 Muslim babies and Hamas 7 today. Cue protests against Assad and Hamas never.
Cutting Through the Crap
As many of you know the media campaign against Israel by Hamas supporters has been plagued by recycled images posted as if they are happening today.
I think many Hamas propagandists and Israel haters don't really care that they are spinning lies, half truths and recycled images of other conflicts as "atrocities" committed against the Palestinians in the ongoing conflict.
I think they know they are inciting hatred with lies, they just don't care.
But for those of us interested in accuracy this presents a problem, not only in the Israel vs Hamas conflict but in other conflicts. Last week ISIS demanded that Christians in Mosul either pay the Jizya, flee or die. Various interviews of Christian fleeing Mosul indicted that ISIS was not only forcing them to feel, but robbing the refugees and also helping themselves to their property before blowing up their houses.
A copy of the Fatwa directing Christians to flee added some other details, for instance that ISIS had ordered all women in the area to undergo Female Genital Mutilation. The pact looked authentic and has many details of the Dhimmi pact that made sense as well as the ISIS logo. It turn out it was a fake probably circulated by Iran.
Well now there is an attempt to crowd source the effort to separate fact from fiction, a website called CITIZEN EVIDENCE LAB has been started by Amnesty International so that people can submit images and videos and they others can help fact check or find the original origin of these videos and images.
Its like an automated Dr. Rusty Shackleford.
A worthwhile project for sure. So well see how it work out. Hopefully it will help us cut through the fog of propaganda and get more accurate reports on what comes from where.
Obama's Regime Change in Libya Goes to Sh*t
Getting rid of Gaddafi, seemed like a good idea at the time. I mean after we turned him into ally of sorts, then we turned on him and gave Libya to al-Qaeda.
The US says it has temporarily evacuated its staff from the Libyan capital Tripoli over security concerns.
Staff, including marine guards providing security to the embassy, have been transferred to Tunisia "due to the ongoing violence resulting from clashes between Libyan militias," it adds.
Secretary of State John Kerry said there was a "real risk" to staff.
It comes amid fierce clashes between rival militias in the capital, with intense fighting at Tripoli airport.
I mean is there any other way to describe the current situation in Libya. We all talk about how dangerous it is that ISIS has taken territory in Iraq that can be used to train terrorists and attack the west. Libya has been like that every since Obama pushed Gaddafi off the edge.
But "at this point what does it really matter."
I'm reading a lot of pundits that say doesn't Obama even care or notice these foreign policy problems exploding. Because you really can't say that he appears upset.
This reminds me of his youth in Indonesia, his mother wrote that he was constantly teased by the Indonesian boys for being black and that his mom was divorced from his father. Yes Indonesian kids were racist against the young black Obama. They noticed the black a lot more than the mixed, even though probably their skin tone is probably not more than a shade apart.
I bring this up because his mother noted how he could take it, how he could ignore the cruelty being thrown at him and appear to be aloof and happy despite the hardship. How he could withdraw from his tormentors and be happy on his own or with just a few friends, discarding the "bad".
This is a pretty admirable quality in Obama really. Its a toughness.
But in the current situation it people just can't get why he's not tore up.
But I'm not so sure showing the world how much we don't give a f*ck we can really dish out really isn't a pretty good idea.
ISIS takes half of Iraq, we don't give a f*ck. Russia takes Ukriane, we don't give a f*ck.
I mean if it wasn't for the ethnic cleansing and genocide against Christians in the war torn Muslim world I could almost not give a F8ck.
Anyway your thoughts on the We Don't Give Even Half a F*ck strategy in comments.

Waiting for Rusty to come and play with him.
Kerry's Ceasefire Proposal Exposed: Full Surrender To Hamas
John Kerry's ceasefire proposal as presented to Israel would have fully capitulated to Hamas' demands:
The popular and widely-watched Saturday evening newscast quotes several unnamed high officials in the Israeli government who claimed that Kerry's cease fire proposal represented a "complete cave-in" to Hamas's demands for an end to fighting in its war against Israel.
The official, and others cited in The Times of Israel, claimed that Israel was "stunned" and "absolutely horrified" that Kerry's ceasefire proposal, which contained no demand that Hamas dismantle or destroy its terror tunnel network. It demanded that both Israel and Egypt open their border crossings with Gaza, from where all the devastating weapons of war were initially imported. Furthermore, the Kerry plan did not simply call for Hamas to be allowed to build a seaport on its Mediterranean coast; but that Israel and Egypt should help pay for it. [...]
Israel's multi-party security cabinet was so taken aback by the pro-Hamas scope of the Kerry proposal, they initially refused to believe they were real. "It must be a misunderstanding," the source told Channel 2.

A documentary about the conflict. It is long, an hour and a half, but well worth a watch. Knowledge is a powerful weapon. Arm yourself.

Media Bias? BBC: Israel Ends Truce Amid Rocket Fire from Gaza
Yes, they actually blamed Israel for ending truce despite being bombarded continually by missiles and rockets from Hamas during the ceasefire period.
