From Zarqawi To The Democrats: A Quick News Round-Up

As we are running short on time with the holidays approaching, rather than spending a bunch of time on numerous posts, I'll give our readers a quick round up of some news stories that have broken today. First Abu Musab al-Zarqawi isn't having a happy holiday. European security authorities have delivered him a nice little package. Though I doubt the package would be gift-wrapped, it would be nice of the authorities had they gift-wrapped these guys.


A wave of arrests across Europe has thrown new light on a European terrorist network being developed by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the most prominent insurgent in Iraq.

A growing number of terrorism investigations in Britain, Germany, Bosnia, Denmark and most recently Spain and France are linked to the man who has masterminded countless suicide bombings in Iraq, personally beheaded hostages and bombed three hotels in his native Jordan.

Some of the suspected networks appear to be involved only in supporting his operations in Iraq. But counter-terrorism officials are worried that Zarqawi could be planning to use his base in Iraq to start attacking Europe.

Security officials are particularly worried by indications that he wants to recruit white extremists who will be more difficult to detect than Arabs or Asians.

"Zarqawi thinks he is bigger than Iraq," a British source said. "He is spreading his tentacles in Europe. There is a sense that attacks are inevitable.

I am sure that one of these surrender monkeys in Europe will try to play the appeasers game, and let these animals go. Or, at least they'll try. Nothing warms my heart more than seeing these cruel and inhumane beasts nailed, and locked up. This is why we are doing everything to track these people in America. And I can only wonder why the Democrats are playing political games. They scream civil liberties abuses, of which there are none reported, and would rather have us unable to combat the terrorists over here. We are combatting them through our surveillance of them. What's worse about this (a problem that Europe doesn't have because of their broad, sweeping police powers) is that the Democrats want us to bestow Constitutional protections on the same foreign agents that are trying to kill us over here. They don't get it. They haven't got a clue. Maybe they're hoping they can cater to the terrorist voting bloc in 2006.


NO CHRISTMAS (SORRY, "HOLIDAY") SONGS OF CHEER for the New York Times as it rounds out a year of leading its braying band of defeatists and appeasers. Whatever the extended and dysfunctional family and friends of the Times may think, the market this year "thought different."

Watch the numbers. They tell a story:

As one wag pointed out, "Their current stock price is way below Bush's current poling numbers."

As they say, "So long. Thanks for the fish wrap."

Follow the link above to Gerard's site (bookmark his site, it's good) and you will see the tracking of the New York Times stock prices over the course of the last year. It seems that aside from bird-cage liner and fish-wrap, the New York times isn't good for much of anything. For a laugh, take a close look at the tracking of December. Notice the sharp decline in early December? I wonder if that coincides with the release of the NSA story? If it isn't, I wonder what worthless story they ran that upset their subscribers enough to cause a sharp dip? Nevertheless, this goes back to what Marcie and I have been saying for the better part of two years now.

The MSM doesn't get it. they're not the big cheese anymore. Between the commentary of talk radio, and the rapid and far more accurate news reporting by many in the blogosphere, the MSM is finished. They have no idea that they are the "Emperor with No Clothes," and that the friends and allies of Rome are kicking the Hell out of them on a daily basis. Readership is up around the 'Net for blogs, while the MSM's viewers and readers continues to drop. And all the while idiots like Michael Hiltzik, Jonathan Alter, and a bevy of other MSM "journalists" or columnists disdain bloggers. We'll never be taken seriously by the MSM. Well, at least not until we drive the final stake through the heart of the beast.


WASHINGTON - A Senate resolution condemning the president of Iran for anti-Semitic comments he made earlier this month is riling its Republican sponsors on Capitol Hill. They claim Senate Democrats forced them to strip language from the document expressing support for self-determination and a national referendum in the country.
Senator Santorum, a Republican of Pennsylvania, drafted the resolution after a December 14 speech in which Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the Holocaust a "myth" and suggested Israel be relocated to Europe, Canada, or Alaska. In its original form, the statement condemned the remarks, demanded an apology, and supported efforts by "the people of Iran to exercise self-determination" and hold a national referendum with oversight by international observers.

When Mr. Santorum moved to introduce the resolution last Friday, Senator Wyden, a Democrat of Oregon, registered an unusual objection. According to the Congressional Record, Mr. Wyden told Mr. Santorum on the Senate floor that he was objecting to the resolution because his Democratic colleagues in the Senate had asked him too. Mr. Wyden did not say who asked him to issue the objection.

"While I personally am vehemently opposed to the statements that have been made by the president of Iran," Mr. Wyden said, "I have been asked by the members on this side of the aisle to object, and I do so object."
Mr. Wyden's office did not return repeated calls yesterday to explain who suggested that he object to the Iran resolution or why he was chosen to register the complaint. And a spokesman for Mr. Santorum, Robert Traynham, said he did not know who raised the objection either. "We're still trying to see who those Democrats are," he said. An Internet blog devoted to promoting Democracy in Iran, "Regime Change Iran," detailed the flap over the resolution. It simply said that "Senate Democrats" objected to the resolution.

Confusion over Mr. Santorum's resolution was first evident when an aide to Senator Voinovich, a Republican of Ohio and a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said last Thursday that she thought the resolution had passed. When a reporter said it hadn't, the aide, Garrette Silverman, double-checked and discovered it was held up. Mr. Voinovich then issued a statement condemning Mr. Ahmadinejad's re marks as "shocking and disgusting."

The following day, Mr. Santorum introduced a revised resolution, absent the language calling for a referendum in Iran. Once it passed, he delivered a floor speech in which he condemned not only the comments of Mr. Ahmadinejad but also members of the Senate and others who have resisted a similarly strong condemnation of the remarks.

http://www.regimechangeiran.com/ Yes, first the Hat-Tip to Regime Change for the story, and a link (something the NY Sun did not put in their online version of this story), but now onto the beating of the Democrats. Pres. Ahmadinejad denounced not only the Holocaust, claiming it was a "myth," but then reinforced his position that Israel is Europe's problem and they should be moved there, or "Alaska." In short this mad little goat-herder wants Israel gone from the Middle-East. Not surprising as just a couple short weeks ago, he promised that should Iran ever develop a nuclear weapon, it's going to hit Israel with it.

This man is nuts. He is anti-Semitic (no surprise given his life and background), and it's apparent that either the ayatollahs are driving his rhetoric, or he's doing this on his own. I would wager he's on his own with this as a report came out, I believe yesterday, stating that the ayatollahs have told him to cool it. (It's nice to see that Iran has it's own "Howling Mad" Howie problems, too.) But seriously, since when did this nation decide that we have to be less forceful when condemning such outrageous comments and postulating? We have always condemned the actions and comments of tyrants in the world, and we've done it as forcefully as we could with the harshest language we could (of course within the realm of politeness; no "F" bombs for Ahmadinejad). But the point is I'd like to know which spineless, panty-waisted Democrat sent Wyden to go pull this grade-school garbage.

"We don't like what you're sayoing, so I was sent over here to tell you so." And we call the GOP spineless.

This appeasement, don't-make-them-hate-us rhetoric and actions are going to slice their own throats this year. Voters aren't stupid. (Well, maybe just the John Kerryites and "Howling Mad" Howie Deaniacs.) We see what's going on. If I were a registered Democrat, and I had watched my party this year, there would be no way in Hell I'd vote for them in 2006.

--They tried to stall and kill the Patriot Act. As a matter of fact, Harry Reid made that boast shortly after the filibuster was invoked to his caucus. They applauded the move.

--They were willing to filibuster the Defense Appropriations Bill (which is unconstitutional) all over the ANWR provision.

--Sen. Durbin stood on the floor of the Senate and compared our troops to jack-booted Nazis, Stalin's murdering minions, and Pol Pot's thugs.

--John Kerry accused our troops of "terrorizing" woman and children in Iraq, and then proclaimed that was the Iraqi's job to do that. (I guess he does long for a return to Saddam Hussein's Iraq.)

--Howling Mad Howie proclaimed we couldn't win this war, and proclaimed he saw so many parallels to Vietnam in this war. (Purely preposterous, and easily debunked, as Richard Miniter did in his new book "Disinformation".)

--John Murtha proclaimed that our troops were "broken," "worn-out," and "living hand-to-mouth." He has called for an immediate withdrawal of our troops from Iraq in the worst display of defeatist politics since Vietnam. (And he disregards any of the soldiers, including one Pfc. Joshua Sparling, that after being injured have requested to go back. To these people, the job's not done, yet.)

--Nancy Pelosi, who stood on the floor of the House, and denounced Rep. Murtha's withdrawal bill, then rallied to support it the following week.

And the list goes on. The Democrats have done a lot of stupid, foolish, and retarded things, but as the year draws closer to it's close, the seem to become more and more unhinged. Or, maybe like John Kerry, they long for the socialism that Europe embraces. That won't ever happen in America. Despite the dim bulbs we have here from time to time (59 million misguided ones in 2004 for John Kerry, mind you), Americans won't give up their freedoms, their liberties, or their sovereignty. But this act of appeasement just takes the cake. They curtailed the language in an official condemnation of the anti-Semitic behavior of Iran. This is asinine. First of all, the condemnation is nice; we even called for it here at the Asylum. However, Iran isn't going to care what we say. They never had. So, to get their attention that we mean business, more forceful language would have been appropo. Call them up, and send a message to the Democrats that they had better find a way to get rid of the yellow-streak running down their backs.

We're in a war where cowards are going to be killed just as easily and quickly as the patriots do.
