Voltaire once said that you can tell who rules you on account of who you’re not allowed to criticize. I guess he would also agree that you can tell who the protected classes are for whom the black hat crowd isn’t spying on.

Nixon vetoes ‘Sharia Law’ bill, saying it would endanger foreign adoptions
Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed on Monday an anti-“Sharia Law” bill, saying that in its zeal to address an imaginary problem, the legislation creates a real one for parents seeking foreign adoptions.
The bill would make it illegal for Missouri to enforce any foreign law or legal decision deemed “repugnant or inconsistent” with Missouri or U.S. law. It doesn’t specify Islamist Sharia religious law, but it’s part of a movement by conservative lawmakers in more than 20 states who have pushed similar measures to highlight alleged Sharia influences in the U.S.
“There are certainly problems facing our state and nation, but this isn’t one of them,” said Nixon, speaking to families at Lutheran Family and Children’s Services, a major adoption proponent. The bill, he said, could muck up the works for families attempting to adopt through foreign governments: “The laws passed in Jefferson City have real consequences. This bill could jeopardize a family’s ability to adopt children from other countries.”
The bill would have prevented Shari’ah Law and made it harder for Missourians to adopt foreign non-white cuckoo birds?
Too bad I don’t know how to forge Jay Nixon’s signature.
BTW, when did pro-aborticide Democrat politicians all of a sudden get worried about adoption?
And also…I suppose he’ll be changing his name soon to Jabir Nayaz al-Jefferson City.

Bosnian-St. Louisans battling County Hall over a new mosque/community center development the former want to build near the old Grandpa’s on Lemay Ferry.
The group was already worshipping at a mosque in south St. Louis. But with many area Bosnians moving from the city to south St. Louis County, the Islamic Community Center’s religious leader, Imam Muhamed Hasic, decided the center should have a presence in the county.
That’s something I’ve been predicting ever since our Yankee government moved the Bosnians here after we oppressed Serbia. They were largely settled in and around the Bevo neighborhood of South City, (and thank goodness for that, because they prevented the Africanization of that general part of South City, which probably would have happened but for the Bosnians). But as they stayed awhile, had kids, and discovered that the St. Louis City Public Schools are mostly black and crummy, they would gradually migrate to South County.
I’m also guessing the “mosque in south St. Louis” was that place on South Kingshighway with that minaret visible from the DOR drivers license office.
Get ready to hear these two refrains over and over again from Official America or parts thereof:
1. We need “comprehensive immigration reform” in order to prevent, deter and crack down on terrorism. The Gang Bangers of Eight bill will actually help us do that, bring terrorists that are already out of the shadows out of the shadows. Only ignorant rubes think otherwise.
2. The (real) Russians (“and not Islam”) are actually responsible for the Boston Massacre, therefore we need to admit all of Russia’s neighbors but not Russia itself into NATO, and cooperate with them all except for Russia on a nuclear missile defense shield.
H/T Nicholas Stix.
UPDATE 4 PM
Yet such freakouts are nothing compared to what is in store if the the Marathon bombing means that Chechen jihadis has come to U.S. shores. The Chechens mounted one of the most vicious terror campaigns ever against Russia in the 1990s, blowing up apartment buildings, and launching massive attacks on theaters and even schools. They are known as among the most violent and dedicated terrorists in the world. They can be found fighting in Libya, Syria and every other major jihadi campaign. Though usually they have to sneak into the target countries, rather than coming on a visa as the Boston bombers apparently did.)
Russia only succeeded in suprresing the Chechen Islamists with extremely brutal tactics that would never find support in the U.S – essentially leveling the Chechen capital. Yet dealing with such a threat would also be impossible with a politically correct approach to counter-terror that, for example, turns away from talking frankly about the terrorists profiles and motives.
Moral of the story? We can have freedom or we can have open borders, but we can’t have both.
Tamerlan says he doesn’t usually take his shirt off so girls don’t get bad ideas: “I’m very religious.”
Tamerlan says he doesn’t drink or smoke anymore: “God said no alcohol.” A Muslim, he says: “There are no values anymore,” and worries that “people can’t control themselves.”
We also know he’s on the lam driving a car with one of those noxious “Coexist” bumper stickers. Why does it seem that belligerent people who can’t get along with anyone have those “Coexist” bumper stickers?
What a righteous life he lead. Except for the whole part about NOT KILLING PEOPLE~!1
It’s too bad we’re back to winter around here, and it’s also too bad that I gave up drinking and never started smoking. Otherwise, I’d spend all weekend with no shirt on while drinking and smoking, all the while not killing anyone. It’s my way of sticking it to Allah.
No Spin(e) Zone
Re this contretemps between Bill O’Reilly and Laura Ingraham about the former’s use of the pejorative phrase “Bible thumper.”
Have you ever seen or heard the phrase “Koran thumper” or “Talmud thumper” used at all, much less in a pejorative sense?
White man, ethnic Italian. Yes, he’s from a South American country, but no, he is not a liberation theologist. The online encyclopedia of questionable credibility claims he toyed with LT in his younger years but quickly distanced himself from it.
Considering the overtly non-white alternatives, I’ll take it.
His Papal name seems to be derived from St. Francis of Assisi. (UPDATE: Or, maybe from Francis Xavier.) I would also imagine that in his home country and throughout the Spanish speaking world, he will be known as Francisco I.
What amazes me is the media — Somehow, they have it all figured out, that a white man who is an ethnic Italian who was just elevated to Pope is instantly going to make all the poor brown and tan Indos and Mezos of Latin America rich simply because he himself is from Buenos Aires.
I wonder what Obama was thinking as he watched this. “Look at all those bitter clingers in St. Peter’s Square. Yeah, you might be Pope, but I’m still the Messiah, beyotch.”
One more thing: Now that the Cardinals have chosen the new Pope, they can now get back to Spring Training.
The text is relevant, but the P-D chooses a really odd picture for the story. Just in case they realize their “error” and change it, I have saved a screenshot of it at the top half of that link above (click to enlarge):
Of course, Dolan is a native St. Louisan (who is considered a long shot candidate for Pope), and Carlson, while not a St. Louis native, is our current Archbishop. (Fancy being Archbishop of a city noted for its Arch.)
This means an authority much higher than the U.S. Senate seems to be on board with naming the new bridge for Stan Musial.
Related: Stan the Almost Common Man
It was clear when the Cardinals picked then 78-year old Cardinal Josef Ratzinger to be Pope Benedict XVI in 2005, that he would be a transitional pope. So news of his resignation this morning is leading to more news that the College of Cardinals really has no obvious favorite to be the next Pope, nor really much of a gauge where the Catholic Church is headed. And that surprises me, as I thought B-16′s successor and the future of the Church would have been their constant concern over the last eight years.
Still, a “transitional” pope, as B-16 was said to be, with only an eight-year tenure, has an extensive record that will be debated for a long time. No voting present for him!
Full disclaimer: I was baptized but never confirmed Missouri Synod Lutheran.
Wait until she gets wind that people often complain about public displays of the Christian faith, because of concerns about “separation of church and state.”
He’s right. Because only Hispanics are allowed to vote in Presidential elections, and because Republican-only Presidential debates held a full year or more before the actual election have Super Bowl-style ratings, I can grok the validity in his theory.
That a native born white American might be steamed that he or she has to pay out of state tuition at a public college in another state while a non-citizen is charged in-state rates? They might as well be screaming in the cold and lonely dark.
Daniel Henninger, in the WSJ, thinks that evangelical Christian voters are flying under the radar this election cycle, and could be the surprise high turnout demo that makes the difference. As an aside, we already know that Romney is doing better among evangelical voters in terms of polling percentage than even Bush in 2004 did, and then it was obvious that evangelicals made the difference in several important swings states, especially the decisive Ohio. So now it’s all a matter of turnout.
I think there will be an easy way after Tuesday to prove whether Henninger’s theory is right or wrong.
There’s no place like home.
If Todd Akin wins this Senate race by any margin, thick or thin, then Henninger is right.
‘Highly offensive’: Ark. GOP blasts candidates’ statements on slavery, Muslims
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansas Republicans tried to distance themselves Saturday from a Republican state representative’s assertion that slavery was a “blessing in disguise” and a Republican state House candidate who advocates deporting all Muslims.
The claims were made in books written, respectively, by Rep. Jon Hubbard of Jonesboro and House candidate Charlie Fuqua of Batesville. Those books received attention on Internet news sites Friday.
On Saturday, state GOP Chairman Doyle Webb called the books “highly offensive.” And U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford, a Republican who represents northeast Arkansas, called the writings “divisive and racially inflammatory.”
Hubbard wrote in his 2009 self-published book, “Letters To The Editor: Confessions Of A Frustrated Conservative,” that “the institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise.” He also wrote that African-Americans were better off than they would have been had they not been captured and shipped to the United States.
Fuqua, who served in the Arkansas House from 1996 to 1998, wrote there is “no solution to the Muslim problem short of expelling all followers of the religion from the United States,” in his 2012 book, titled “God’s Law.”
Half right, he is.
Muslims can’t do anything to us that we won’t let them do by letting them immigrate to where we are to begin with. Remember, I have said here in this space that KSM confessed that he and AQ wanted to commit acts of terrorism in Japan when they co-hosted the Soccer World Cup in 2002, but they couldn’t get a ground network going in the country. And the reason they couldn’t do that is because Japan is an ethnostate and has and enforces immigration law like an ethnostate. Take the hint, America, Europe, Australia, etc.
True, Pak has nukes and Iran may soon have them, but they won’t nuke us because their leaders grok MAD.
As far as the other part, we have problems. To me, it’s as simple as the “if I would have known this, I would have picked my own damned cotton” doctrine. True, American blacks are far better off than they would have been, but American whites are worse off. One of the untold negative consequences of slavery of any sort in the South is that it precluded the development of a real middle class, just as today’s neo-slavery (cheap Hispanic labor) is degrading the middle and working middle class. When you add in the “Who? Whom?” factor of slavery, it eventually created an expensive and obnoxious black undertow that slowed American growth and progress.
President Obama: The Future Must Not Belong to Those Who Slander the Prophet of Islam
President Barack Obama addressed the United Nations General Assembly this morning and claimed the future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt, those who bully women, the corrupt few who steal a country’s resources, and those who slander the prophet of Islam.
What does this even mean? “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.”
The only theory I can come up with is that we’re all going to be sticking our asses up in the air bowing to Mecca pretty soon, whether we like it or not. You ladies better get used to burquas and clitoridectomies.
Otherwise, I’m left to think that Obama said a whole lot of nothing because he was afraid of offending anybody. In other words, he voted Present.
Insert the predicable blah blah blah here.
The problem isn’t that there’s too much of a divide, it’s that there’s too little. We’re over there dicking around trying to turn third world people into first world people, and because of that, they’re over here making us more diverse and vibrant, and the whole thing is not only making us indebted to China, it’s threatening our First Amendment. (“Invade the world, invite the world, in hock to the world, gag ourselves.”) What is needed now is to put the seventh century fanatics on their own playpens, so when they inevitably break their toys or spill their pablum, it won’t affect any grownups.
Lindsay Grahamnesty reacts:
“Pakistan is a country with nuclear weapons that is hanging by a thread. I think it would be a very bad idea,” Graham said of cutting off aid.
He added that aid should have some conditions but said he was “worried about the possibility of a nuclear-armed Pakistan falling into extremist hands. … Now is not the time to disengage.”
If Pockeystahn falls into extremist hands, I can’t imagine what would happen. They might hide and hold prisoner the world’s most wanted terrorist for almost a decade, and prosecute the doctors who help the people who want that terrorist find his hiding place and nail him.
Seriously, if Islamabad didn’t nuke us for our incurring into Pak to nab OBL, they wouldn’t nuke us for cutting off a wee little sum of money. Take that as a hint about Iran.
On Saturday, Jared Taylor spoke in Sydney.
Maybe we’re finally having a positive effect.
That’s also why the American embassy in Cairo did the same thing.
That’s what diplomats do — They try to garner good relations with a foreign country by siding against their own country.
As an aside, I don’t understand why we need formal brick-and-mortar embassies anywhere any longer. They made sense in the days when communication was only as fast as the horse trotted or the ship sailed or the courier jogged, but communication today is virtually instantaneous. We don’t need physical buildings for foreign relations anymore, just direct lines of communication between the foreign relations bureaucracies of the world.
THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED FOR JOHN MCCAIN, POLITICALLY TROUBLESOME INDEPENDENT FILMMAKERS WOULD BE HARASSED BY THE AUTHORITIES — AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Alleged ‘Innocence of Muslims’ filmmaker taken in for interviewing by deputies.
This running gag isn’t as funny as it used to be. Imagine the uproar if we had a Republican in the White House — but it’s the absence of uproar over these tactics that is really revealing. It’s going to be really hard for the press and pundits who should be raising a stink about this, but aren’t, to play their “have you no decency?” games during a Republican Administration. They’ll try, of course, but they should be treated with the contempt they deserve. And that should start now, actually.
It’s easy to think that this is all a result of a Presidential administration and Federal law enforcement corps headed by a man with three Arabic names looking to stuff Muslim misbehavior down the rabbit hole. But I get the feeling that it wouldn’t be any different if this happened while Bush 43 was President. Official America seems to have a big ass blind spot re Islam for some reason.
A bunch of jihadist types just so happen to get upset over a movie that nobody has ever heard of and that’s been available on the internets for months, and they just so happen to get upset that they storm American embassies starting on September 11.
Already, I’m hearing the same bullshit excuses for these jihadist mobs from the media that they spew in reaction to our domestic mahogany mobs. “Overexuberant youths,” “crowds got out of control,” “senseless violence,” “protesting injustice,” blah blah. If you had no idea what this was all about, there would be your hint that non-whites are the primary doers.
Pat Buchanan sides with the jihadists in three, two, one…How do I know he will? Two words: Mohammed Cartoons.
The initial statements from the State Department and the embassy in Egypt blaming this movie shouldn’t be surprising. That’s what diplomats do — They try to engender good relations with a foreign country by shifting as much blame as possible on their own country.
The movie didn’t matter, Terry Jones didn’t matter. This was a coordinated hit on the part of AQ/MB and its allies timed to a specific day, that being September 11.
Both are unlikely to happen at the same time. But if Romney wins the Presidency and the Democrats retain control of the Senate in November, we will have both a Mormon President and a Mormon Senate Majority Leader.
Los Angeles Jewish Federation Enforces Shariah Law
On the morning of June 24th, author, blogger, speaker, executive director, and co-founder with Robert Spencer of Stop the Islamization of America (SIOA), Pamela Geller was denied her First Amendment Constitutional right of freedom of speech by The Jewish Federation of Los Angeles – just hours before she was scheduled to speak at an event organized by the Zionist Organization of America – West (ZOA). The Jewish Federation cited security concerns as reason for the virtually last minute cancellation.
The Jewish Federation caved in to a so called “interfaith coalition,” including Islamist and radical leftist Israel- bashing groups: Council on American-Islamic Relations – Greater Los Angeles, (CAIR-LA), Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace (ICUJP), Islamic Circle of North America – Southern California (ICNA), Islamic Shura Council of Southern California, Jewish Voice for Peace – Los Angeles (JVP-L.A.), L.A. Jews for Peace, Muslim American Society – Greater Los Angeles (MAS-LA), Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), Muslim Ummah of North America, Southern California (MUNA), and Progressive Christians Uniting (PCU).
And by “narrative,” I mean this hobby horse going around our circles, and I’m sure many of you reading these words believe it, because I believed it for about two weeks until my common sense and pure facts came to the rescue. That is, this notion that the Jews are giving us permission to hate Muslims and no other NW group because Muslims hate Jews.
I thought the kook left thought of white American conservative Christian home schoolers as a Madrassas.
Whatever happened to the separation between church and state? Answer: It’s code for the ejection of Christianity from society. Islam is the official religion of America’s public schools, after all.
FBI probe targets Islamic extremists in US army
The FBI is investigating more than 100 suspected Islamic extremists in the US military, following the 2009 “lone wolf” attack by an alleged Al-Qaeda sympathizer that killed 13 people at a Texas army base, a news report said.
In November 2009, US Army Major Nidal Hasan opened fire on his fellow soldiers at a base in Fort Hood, Texas, killing 13.
An investigation revealed that Hasan was in contact with Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Yemeni American imam tied to Al-Qaeda.
For the first time, we have an admission from Official America that Hasan was linked to the terroristical boogie woogies and therefore his murders were actually terrorism on behalf of the religion of peace. This is something that Official America was loath to admit until now, and the Pentagon still won’t.
Study Finds People Who Believe In Heaven Commit More Crimes
Believing if you are on a “highway to hell” could impact whether or not if you commit a crime.
A study published in the scientific journal PLoS One by University of Oregon’s Azim Shariff and University of Kansas’s Mijke Rhemtulla finds that people who believe in hell are less likely to commit a crime while people who believe in heaven more likely are to get in trouble with the law.
One more time, really slowly so it finally sinks in:
C-o-r-r-e-l-a-t-i-o-n W-i-t-h-o-u-t C-a-u-s-a-t-i-o-n
I would have figured these two dweebs for sociology profs, but they’re actually psychology.
The way the media were waiting anxiously this morning to see if SCOTUS would rule on ObamaCare and SB 1070 reminds me of the huddled masses outside the conclave of eligible Cardinals inside The Vatican when they’re in the process of choosing a new Pope. The only thing the Supreme Court building doesn’t have is a chimney that can emit either black or white smoke.
Did the Framers intend for the Supreme Court to have divine status, and its building to be some sort of temple or altar, and for its rulings to be divinely-inspired pronouncements?
It’s just one-third of the power of the Federal government. Chill out, people.
Military instructor suspended over Islam course
The instructor of a college course that taught top military officers the United States was at war with Islam has been relieved of teaching duties and the course ordered redesigned to reflect U.S. policy, a military spokesman said on Wednesday.
The elective course at the National Defense University’s Joint Forces Staff College included a slide that asserted “the United States is at war with Islam and we ought to just recognize that we are war with Islam,” Pentagon officials said in April as they launched a review of the course.
Colonel David Lapan, a spokesman for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Wednesday a review of the course found that “institutional failures and in oversight and judgment” led to the course being modified over time in a way “that portrayed Islam almost entirely in a negative way.”
Between terrorism, taqqiya, Shari’ah, burquas, FGM, honor killings, dhimmitude and general all around fanaticism and intolerance, I’m surprised he couldn’t find anything good to slip in between all that.
General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, ordered the review of the course on Islam and military education in general after a soldier complained about the content of the course entitled “Perspectives on Islam and Islamite Radicalism” at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Virginia.
Sounds to me that a certain soldier needs to be court-martialed. Another Nidal Hasan in the making? Or just your run-of-the-mill egalitarian twit?
Navy Captain John Kirby, a Pentagon spokesman, said in April that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was deeply concerned about some of the materials being taught in the course, such as the slide suggesting the United States was at war with Islam.
“That’s not at all what we believe to be the case. We’re at war against terrorism, specifically al Qaeda, who has a warped view of the Islamic faith,” Kirby said.
Repeat after me, dippy: You can’t wage a war against a tactic of warfare. I hope to hell Panetta himself doesn’t believe it, though since he might be the “leaker” of all these bullshit “secrets” that makes Obama look oh-so-tough on his maybe-kinda-sorta co-religionists (Ooh, I didn’t just say that, did I? Have I gone too far, or have I not gone far enough?), he probably does.
The only people in the world who believe we aren’t at war with Islam are American politicians and commentators. The rest of the world, including most of Islam itself, sees right through that bullshit.
