Truth, Justice And Hollywood Weasels!

Just in time for Independence Day weekend, it's Superman Returns, featuring the famous line "Truth, justice and the...REWRITE!"

That's right: the screenwriters of the new Superman pix "never considered" using the phrase "the American way" in their film. Why? Because it would "taint" Superman to link him to American values.

"We were always hesitant to include the term 'American way' because the meaning of that today is somewhat uncertain," says screenwriter Michael Dougherty. "The ideal hasn't changed. I think when people say 'American way,' they're actually talking about what the 'American way' meant back in the '40s and '50s, which was something more noble and idealistic."

As opposed to today, when the phrase would be something embarrassing and demeaning.

Thanks, Superman.

Here's a letter from a listener who doesn't agree:

Who in his or her right mind would care one way or the other about a stupid and irrelevant comic character.

As to america it used a fair and decent place. Now it is run by an outright liar and a murderous terrorist in its own right.

If it were up to all the conservatives this would be just another hell hole. .well it has become that in the last few years.

I am so happy that we will shortly be leaving this ugly state for Cairo which is a beautiful place to live, study and rear children. It is a place of morals and great ideology. One can not be free in this part of the world any longer. Thank all that is beneficent we will have a good life not one of living under a dictator.(!!! he obviously doesn't know what the heck is going on in Egypt at the moment. mg)

So you want to live under the american way....good when they come after you remember that you are nothing more than an obviously depraved american having gotten that way from a fundamentalist background.

By the way Hollywood is not un american nor any other appellation you wish to apply to them. I can hardly wait until you people vote in the fall and the real americans take all of you and put you in jail where you belong.

May the world court have the opportunity to prosecute those in America who forced this war against millions of innocents. america is the laughing stock of the people of this world.

Captain Courageous Runs For Governor!

You've got to love the strong leadership of Duval "77 Acres And A Mercedes" Patrick. Here he is, boldly speaking out on whether the legislature should let the citizens of Massachusetts vote on the legal definition of a marriage:
"I'm not in the Legislature but I wish they wouldn't" vote on the matter, Patrick said. "I think we've had enough of this debate. I've been married for 22 years in a straight marriage; there's nothing about gay marriage that threatens my marriage." When pressed, Patrick added, "I'm going to let the Legislature run the Legislature."
Now THAT'S bold leadership for Massachusetts. Duval Patrick's supporters--particularly in the gay and lesbian community--must be so proud.
According to the same Boston Globe story, in the same Democratic debate Duval "I'm not going to run the legislature" urged the legislature to vote to repeal a 1913 law the prevents same-sex couples who reside in other states from marrying in Massachusetts.
Why, Mr. Patrick, are you willing to push the legislature on one vote, but not the other? Could it be that opposing the democratic process on same-sex marriage is wrong, you know it's wrong, but you're afraid of losing the votes of angry, irrational activist gay voters?
Like I said: That's courage.

Pelosi: Al Qaeda Terrorists Deserve Constitutional Protection

Before anyone is fooled into believing today's liberal whackjob ruling on behalf of Al Qaeda detainees will help the Democrats win elections, you need to read House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi's reaction:

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today
following the United States Supreme Court decision that trying Guantanamo
detainees before military commissions violates U.S. law and the Geneva

“Today’s Supreme Court decision reaffirms the American
ideal that all are entitled to the basic guarantees of our justice system. This
is a triumph for the rule of law.

“The rights ofdue process are among
our most cherished liberties, and today’s decision is a rebuke of the Bush
Administration’s detainee policiesand a reminder of our responsibility to
protect both the American people and our Constitutional rights. We cannot allow
the values on which our country was founded to become a casualty in the war on

Well, Nancy, if all are entitled to the rights of citizens--including murderous Islamist terrorists--then I guess being a citizen just doesn't count for much, does it?

More Love From The Religion Of Peace

This is the latest recipient of the kind of compassion so often demonstrated by Arab Muslims towards Jews these days. Eliyahu Asheri, an 18-year-old kid, was murdered by Palestinians because, well, ah...because they could. They kidnapped him, dragged him away from his home and eventually executed him, not for DWB (Driving While Black) but rather BWJ. Breathing While Jewish.

Believe it or not, the folks at Harvard think Eliyahu's killers are the "victims."

Why It Sucks To Be Israel

The Israeli Army has invaded Gaza in an attempt to rescue one of its soldiers kidnapped from within Israel by Palestinian terrorists. The AP is reporting that Israel is currently detaining some Hamas officials because

Israel blames Hamas for the attack Sunday in which two soldiers were killed and
a third captured when militants tunneled under the border and attacked an army
post, setting off the invasion.

"Israel blames Hamas?" So says the AP. Just Israel, making an accusation. It's "He Said, She Said," is that right, Associated Press?

Hmmm....Let's check the AP reporting from three days ago:

Three militant groups, including the armed wing of the ruling Hamas movement, claimed responsibility for the attack. The two other groups involved were the popular resistance committees, an umbrella grouping of radical militants, and a hitherto little-known organization called
'The Islamic Army.' Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said the assault was 'a natural attack on the Israeli occupation crimes.'

OK, so is it Israel blaming Hamas, or is it Hamas blaming Hamas? AP reports, you decide.

Because, sadly, the AP can't decide for themselves.

Al Gore, Almost Right?

That's the kindest thing that Reason magazine's Ronald Bailey can say about Gore's flawed film:

As further evidence of warming, Gore notes that permafrost is melting in parts of Alaska and Siberia. The temperatures in central Siberia are thought to have increased by 3 degrees Celsius over the past 40 years. This not only causes engineering and infrastructure problems, but might also release even more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as once frozen organic matter begins to decompose. But is this warming unprecedented? Perhaps not.

A Russian study in 2004 found that the average temperatures in Siberia during the Holocene Climatic Optimum around 6000 years ago warmed up by 3 to 9 degrees celcius in the winter, and by 2 to 6 degrees celcius in the summer. Due to changes in the earth's orbit which affect how much sunlight reaches the surface, pretty much the entire Arctic was warmer than now 6000 years ago. [emphasis added].

But wait! How could the Arctic have been so warm 6,000 years before Henry Ford cursed us with the automobile? Before we started cranking up our evil air conditioners? Even before...HALIBURTON? If it's true that the earth experienced major periods of warming without man in the past, then it would be possible that the earth is warming today without our help.

Please, Al, tell me it's not true!

What The Media Just Don't Get

It's called a "war."

Thanks, New York Times!

Keep up the great work--letting Al Qaeda know we're tracking their international bank transaction and reading their emails--and with your help, they'll be able to generate even MORE great headlines for you.

It may not be "3,000 Innocent Americans Dead One Morning," but hey--you can always hope. Right, NYTimes?

Resumes For Reilly!

If you're a construction worker or skilled laborer and either can't find a job or are working for peanuts, I've got the solution for you! Just send your resume to gubernatorial candidate Tom Reilly! Here's the address:

Tom Reilly Committee, PO Box 6320 Boston, MA 02114

Tom knows that the illegal immigrants he's helping are taking jobs from American citizens like you, but he says that defending legal immigrants is more important that protecting your jobs or helping you pay your bills.

Since his refusal to enforce immigration law means you can't get that job you need, maybe you can get a job...from him! So please, spread the word. Tell all your unemployed or under-employed friends to send in those resumes today!

Maybe Someone Should Explain The "Internets" to Tom Reilly...

If he knew how to work it, he'd be able to do what the private sector does every day: check the immigration status of the criminals he encounters and of the state-funded workers stealing jobs from blue-collar voters.

Instead, Reilly continues to insist that it's not his job to confront illegal behavior in the Commonwealth. He maintains his "Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Don't Want To Know" policy towards immigration criminals.

I hate to be mean, but the time has come to ask the tough question about Attorney General Tom Reilly: How dumb IS this guy?

Mitt Makes His Move On Immigration

Governor Romney gets a two-fer on the immigration issue by announcing he wants Massachusetts state troopers to be authorized to arrest illegal immigrants.

First, it puts him on the right side of immigration in the presidential race, and it does so in a non-provocative way. He's not calling for new laws or dragging immigrant kids out of classrooms. He's just enforcing the law, a position that according to Pew Research, a majority of Hispanic Americans support.

Second, it's gives a boost to the GOP nominee to replace Romney, Lt. Governor Kerry Healy. Romney's announcement is in reaction to a series of news stories about illegal immigrants working at tax-funded public works projects and the refusal of Democratic Attorney General Tom Reilly to take any actions to stop it. In fact, Reilly--who is in a three-way gubernatorial primary race--has announced he will not enforce any immigration laws under any circumstances.

Calling out the state troopers on immigration is the kind of politically-savvy move that should make Romney supporters feel good about his prospects in '08.

Amnesty Gets The Death Sentence

Hooray! The hideous, awful, odious amnesty plan (ooops, sorry Sen. McCain--the BANANA) is dead! The House of Representatives is planning hearings before it will even convene a conference committee to negotiate with the US Senate. That means there won't be time to negotiate which means (Thank you, God) NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN!

Why is this such good news?

a) It stops amnesty, which means it stops at least 12 million immigration criminals from being rewarded for their bad behavior. It also means the millions who, according to the Center for Immigration Studies, were going to apply for amnesty illegally won't be able to. Stopping this outrageous amnesty disaster is a good thing.

b) It gives President Bush a chance to prove once and for all whether we can actually enforce immigration laws. He's got about a year to prove that the Department fo Homeland Security can consistently crack down on businesses that hire illegal immigrants, and prove that they really are going to stop releasing OTMs (immigrants from nations "other than Mexico) into American society--the current policy. Around 38,000 of those OTMs are from terror-sponsoring countries or their allies.

c) It gives voters in November a reason to vote Republican. Obviously there are plenty of pro-amnesty Republicans, but there are virtually NO anti-amnesty Democrats. If the Dems get power, amnesty follows immediately. That's a good reason for conservatives to show up and vote.

Tom Reilly, Please Read This Letter!

While our attorney general is looking for ways to avoid enforcing the law, the mayor of Hazelton, PA is showing what leadership is by finding ways to solve the illegal immigrant problem in his community.

In an open letter, he explains his decision to fight illegal immigration at the local level. My hope is that Attorney General Tom Reilly will at least read this letter.

The question is, will Reilly understand it?

Tom Reilly Sees No Evil

The Boston Globe (yes, THAT Boston Globe) had a great piece about how a third of the workers they tracked at public works construction jobs "lack legitimate Social Security numbers," a.k.a. "illegal immigrants."

The state and local governments paying for these projects blame the contractors. The contractors blame the federal government and can't tell who's really illegal. Then again, one of the contractors in the Globe story accepted the Social Security number 666-66-6666.

Meanwhile, every person who hires an illegal immigrant is breaking Massachusetts law right now. These state contractors supposedly agree to obey the laws of Massachusetts when they get the bids.

So why aren't these contractors in jail? Why haven't these illegal immigrants on the front page of the Globe been deported?

Because that job is in the hands would-be governor Tom Reilly. And Tom Reilly during his entire term in office has yet to prosecute even ONE illegal immigration case.

On Planet Earth, a guy who wanted to be governor would love the chance to fight for blue-collar workers and protect these public works jobs for American workers (and voters). But this is Planet Kennedy, where playing the race card trumps everything else. Reilly is never going to alienate Hispanic activists by enforcing the law.

We can expect a similar level of leadership from a GOVERNOR Reilly, too.

Want To Help Haleigh?

Here's the new report out on how the DSS failed Haleigh Poutre, the little girl whose step-losers beat, burned and abused her for nearly three years under the supervision of DSS. When Haleigh was finally beaten into a coma, even DSS finally noticed "Hey, that ain't right!"

DSS took three years to figure out they were keeping Haleigh trapped in a home with her abusers, but just 10 days to ask for permission to unplug her from life support...even after she had begun to improve!

The punchline? Nobody gets fired. Nobody. Not her case worker, not the head of DSS. Nobody. And it all happens on Gov. Mitt Romney's watch.

There are, thankfully, people fighting for Haleigh. Susan Molina of the Yellow Ribbon Kids Club is keeping the heat up. You can help by contacting your legislators or the governor using the information here.

The Perfect Mother?

So says a new ad campaign pressuring new moms to give up the formula and rely on mother's milk. The ads compare formula feeding a newborn to pregnant moms bullriding and logrolling.

Is it fair? Well, they certainly do have the science on their side. Is it nice? Probably not. Should new moms who don't breastfeed feel guilty? Probably.

But we're talking about risks, here, not certain outcomes. Risk has to be measured with costs. For example, it's hard for a mom to stay home and breastfeed if she doesn't have a home because she doesn't have a job.

Quote Of The Day

"There is nothing more authentic than finding a thumbdrive in his pocket."--Iraqi National Security Adviser Mouwafak al-Rubaie on intelligence found in the debris after the airstrike that killed al-Zarqawi.

Quote Of The Day!

This is what Sen. Ted Kennedy, Sen. Judd Gregg and Sen. John McCain all voted for:

"An American who commits Social Security fraud ends up going to jail. An American who fails to pay taxes for two years ends up in the federal penitentiary. An illegal alien who does this gets citizenship." -- Rep. James Sensenbrenner on the Senate's "immigration reform" bill.

The good news? This Bush/Kennedy/McCain/Gregg disaster is going nowhere.

More "Inconvenient Truth" For Al Gore

UPDATE! A new report shows that, while many scientists buy into the "global warming" scare, most of those scientists AREN'T climatologists. So while Al Gore's agenda may be supported by a majority of gynecologists and professors of animal husbandry, the scientists who specialize in climate science know he's full of hot air.

Geez, Al, have a Valium, really. You're going to blow a gasket if you don't get a grip.

If you're looking for a place to start, you might try...the facts!

I don't find the truth "inconvenient," despite the title of your pseudo-documentary, and it certainly isn't slowing you down any. Why here's a list of inaccurate statements you delivered to Jim Braude on 96.9 FM TALK earlier today:

  • "Oceans have been warmed and we’re having stronger hurricanes."
  • "The North Pole is melting and may be completely gone in a few decades."
  • There's an immediate threat of catastrophic sea level rise.
  • Germs and viruses moving around the world.
  • “We are the largest force of nature.”
  • "Pollution is trapping a lot more of the sun’s heat and cooking the planet”

Uh, no Al. None of these statemetns are true, at least not in any meaningful way.

For example, the North Pole is not melting. And, no, we're not about to be flooded out.

We'll be dropping the N-bomb (Natural Truth Bomb) on your hysteria today.

Support Free Speech!

The City of Philadelphia is prosecuting Geno's Steaks for their "This is America: Please Speak English For Service" sign. The city claims the sign is racist, though they can't explain what race it is that is incapable of speaking English.

Send your support to Geno's by clicking here. And sorry--they don't ship Geno's philly cheesesteaks.


Believe it or not, that's what angry Democrats are trying to do to Ann's new book: Get book stores to participate in a book ban.

Deputy Speaker Linda Stender and Majority Conference Leader Joan Quigley have asked "New Jersey retailers statewide to...refuse to carry or sell copies of Couter's book," a book they claim as "no place on New Jersey bookshelves."

Gee, I thought it was only right-wing Neanderthals who banned books? What's next, ladies--a book-burning bonfire in the Barnes and Noble parking lot? Goose-stepping through libraries and pulling Coulter's "forbidden" works from the shelves.

I keep telling you. They aren't Democrats. They're MULLAH-crats.

Shut Up And Spy

From Andrew McCarthy, former federal prosecutor, on the media coverage of how we got al-Zarqawi:

Reading the account of events leading to the raid that killed Zarqawi in this morning's NYTimes provides a good object lesson in why our intelligence is so sparse.

Thanks yet again to people inside our intelligence community who don't know how to keep their mouths shut, one (or perhaps more) of the few valuable sources we have inside the jihadist network in Iraq is today no longer a valuable source — either (a) because enough information is now public that the bad guys can pretty easily figure out who among them is an informant and kill him (typically, in a grisly fashion to discourage others), or (b) because we have to extract the
informant to avoid that fate. The Times reports:

[W]hat the Americans had always lacked was someone from inside Mr. Zarqawi's
network, Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, who would betray him — someone close enough and trusted enough to show the Americans where he was.

According to a Pentagon official, the Americans finally got one. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the raid are classified, said that an Iraqi informant inside Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia provided the critical piece of intelligence about Mr. Rahman's [i.e., Zarqawi's "spiritual adivser"] meeting
with Mr. Zarqawi. The source's identity was not clear — nor was it clear how
that source was able to pinpoint Mr. Zarqawi's location without getting killed
himself. [ME: This means these things were not clear to the NYTIMES. You can bet they is now clear to al Qaeda.]

"We have a guy on the inside who led us directly to Zarqawi," the official said.

In a news release on Thursday morning, American military commanders hinted strongly that a member of Mr. Zarqawi's inner circle had pointed the way. "Tips and intelligence from Iraqi senior leaders from his network led forces to al-Zarqawi," the release said.

Iraqi officials confirmed that Mr. Zarqawi had indeed been sold out by one of his
own. "We have managed to infiltrate this organization," said Mowaffak al-Rubaie, Iraq's national security adviser. He declined to elaborate.

Just how the Americans were able to get the information from the source was also unclear. [ME: But rest assured that as soon as someone in the intelligence community leaks it to us, we'll be reporting how the U.S. manages to communicate with its informants.] In an interview, a Jordanian official close to the investigation said the mission that killed Mr. Zarqawi was a joint operation conducted by the Americans and Jordanian intelligence. The source inside Mr. Zarqawi's group, the Jordanian official said, had been cultivated at least in part by Jordanian intelligence
agents. [ME: Translation: if you have been providing intelligence to the U.S. and you are either a Jordanian member of al Qaeda in Iraq or a Zarqawi associate who was ever in Jordan on Zarqawi business, it's time to get out of town.]

"There was a man from Zarqawi's group who handed over the information," the Jordanian official said.

Back in Hibhib, Mr. Ismael [a witness interviewed by the Times and whom the newspaper chose to identify by name for this story] again noticed something strange. Of the three GMC trucks that had pulled up to the house in the date palm grove,
only two stayed. One of them drove away and never came back.

Whether the departing GMC contained the source who tipped off the Americans about Mr. Zarqawi's location is unknown.

If you were thinking about betraying al Qaeda and becoming a U.S. informant, would you do it after hearing about or reading this?

The ACL-osers Strike Again!

Two weeks ago, I mentioned " target=_blank>this story from Philly about Geno's saying "When Ordering, Speak English." It's similar to another story from Ohio where a tavern owner (see photo left) posted a "For Service, Speak English" and then was prosecuted by the state government. Fortunately a rational judge eventually got involved and the case was dismissed.

But notice what the sign on the right side of the window says: "Merry Christmas, ACLU." That's not a message about the holidays. It's a comment on the ACLU's lack of comment in this case. The ACLU refused to defend this American and his right to speak from a government that was literally prosecuting him for his opinion. What--the ACLU lost his phone number?

It's an interesting and recurring problem for the folks who USED to defend civil rights and unpopular opinions as a matter of principle. Not anymore. Today, the ACLU believes every person is entitled to express an opinion as long as it doesn't offend the ACLU.

Take the classic, ongoing case of the Islamic Society of Boston being given more than $500,000 in free property upon which to build a mosque. That's right: a taxpayer-subsidized place of worship. Who would you expect to lead the charge against this clear violation of state-sponsored religion? The ACLU!

Except they aren't. The same mob that grabs the pitchforks and heads for city hall over a rumor that someone tacked a Christmas card to the bulletin board refuses to take any action over the city of Boston using tax dollars to build a MOSQUE!

ACLU: The L is for "losers."

Why Ann Coulter Is Right!

Thanks to Michelle Malkin for reminding me of this excellent work by the Wall Street Journal's Dorothy Rabinowitz re: the Witches of East Brunswick. As I said on the air yesterday, you may not like what Ann Coulter says about the handful of Bush-bashing activist wives of 9/11, and you may not like the words she uses, but Ann Coulter is telling the truth.

As usual.

The Washington Post Says 70% of America is Conservative!

Yes, just read this article on President Bush's struggles to get support for his amnesty/guest worker program. According to the WaPo, Bush is talking about enforcing the law, urging immigrants to learn English and promoting assimilation because conservatives are demanding it.

Well, gee, I've seen polling that consistently shows 70% of Americans oppose amnesty and support actually enforcing our immigration laws. In other words, using the Post's (for lack of a better word) logic, America is 70% conservative!

Congratulations to the Vast, Right-Wing Conspiracy. You won!

Gee, I Wonder...

"They represent a broad strata of our community...Aside from the fact virtually all are young men, it's hard to find a common denominator."

That's the conclusion of the Toronto Star after reviewing the cases of the 17 would-be terrorists arrested in Canada. "Gee," the Star wonders, "what could they possibly have in common?"

And, apparently, the "family members" waiting to see the would-be terrorists in the Star's photo isn't a big enough hint for our Canadian friends.

You gotta be kidding me, right?

BTW, here are the names of the "unrelated, gee-what-could-they-have-in-common" terrorist plotters:

Chand, Asad Ansari, 21, Fahim Ahmad, 21, Zakaria Amara, 20, Qayyum Abdul Jamal, 43, Amin Mohamed Durrani, 19, Jahmaal James, 23, Saad Khalid, 19, Ahmad Mustafa Ghany, 21, and the five youths, none of whom can be identified, are all scheduled to return to court June 12.
Shareef Abdelhaleen, 30, will return on July 4 for a bail hearing.

Sen. Kennedy Has A Message For Massachusetts

You're all a bunch of bigots. OK, not ALL. Just the majority of voters, who have repeatedly told pollsters that they oppose re-defining marriage as anything other than one man and one woman.

When a senate vote to amend the Constitution to acknowledge that fact came up, did Sen. Kennedy offer reasoned arguments in favor of re-defining marriage? Not quite. Instead he said

“A vote for this amendment is a vote for bigotry, pure and simple.”

Why YOU Should Care About The Terror Bust In Toronto

As the Canadian Post reports:

A Canadian counter-terrorism investigation that led to the arrests of 17 people
accused of plotting bombings in Ontario is linked to probes in a half-dozen
countries, the National Post has learned.
Well before police tactical teams began their sweeps around Toronto on Friday, at least 18 related arrests had already taken place in Canada, the United States, Britain, Bosnia, Denmark, Sweden, and Bangladesh.

Oh, and for those of you who object to the NSA's international monitoring program, do you know why these would-be Al Qa-Nucks were caught? "their online communications were monitored by authorities," Fox News reports.

I suppose we could just go back to the Clinton Administration days of just taking our chances. As we discovered at the World Trade Center--TWICE!--that works really well...

Quick--Stop The Swedish Looking Guy!

That's apparently what our border patrol policy is supposed to be as we try to stop illegal immigration from...MEXICO.

Now, I know what you're thinking: "If I were trying to stop illegals coming in from Mexico and Central America (who make up more than 90% of our illegal immigrants), I'd be checking the people who look, well, Mexican or Central American."

But you're not an open-borders whackjob. But attorney Luis Carrillo is. He claims that when U.S. Border Patrol agents only pulled over people with brown skin during "Operation Desert Denial" that this was illegal racism.

I'd call it "common sense" myself. How stupid would you have to be to focus your efforts to prevent illegal immigration on people who DON'T appear to be illegal immigrants?
