Those Krazee X-tians:
"Christian Peacemakers" Blame US, UK, Damjooz...

Paulyanna: "What the fuck am I gonna do?
Save the hostages or win the election? MOMMY!"
For the past couple of days, 2 of my "fellow Canadians" have been taken hostage in Iraq by some shady, greasy "insirgent" group, along with a Brit and a Yank.

As soon as a video of their captivity was released via the "esteemed" media outlet al-Jazeera, the hostages' employer called "Christian Peacemaker Teams" have have placed the blame for their predicament on the ususal suspects.

We are angry because what has happened to our teammates is the result of the actions of the U.S. and U.K. governments due to the illegal attack on Iraq and the continuing occupation and oppression of its people. Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) has worked for the rights of Iraqi prisoners who have been illegally detained and abused by the U.S. government. We were the first people to publicly denounce the torture of Iraqi people at the hands of U.S. forces, long before the western media admitted what was happening at Abu Ghraib. We are some of the few internationals left in Iraq who are telling the truth about what is happening to the Iraqi people We hope that we can continue to do this work and we pray for the speedy release of our beloved teammates.

Translation: "It's all tha Damjooz's fault! They start the war and we get the shaft."

Even though the abductors called themselves "The Swords of Righteousness Brigade", there had been talk about them being nothing more than mecrcenary criminal thugs: Iraq hasn't yet reached the economic level of Kansas or PEI, and someone's gotta eat.

One must wonder what X-tian compassion and common sense are these so-called peacemakers espousing when they blame the "usual suspects" for something that they perceive to be far beyond their control. Their intentions in Iraq may be good, but in a country where X-tianity and Joodyism are considered heretical in the eyes of local Islamic clerics, blogosphere pundits suspect that they're being used as asphalt on the Highway to Hell.

The Peacemakers' history and credo can be found here. It's interesting to note that amongst their various programmes are projects along the US/Mexico border and "Palestine"™. Cindy al-Shaheeda and Michael al-Moor would be vewy proud.

And all this reminds me of a Clutch tune...

Like ravens on a scarecrow
Too old to beat them off
The guilt ferments
Familiarity breeds contempt
The yolk of faith splatters silent
Harvest time, red moon rising
Anvil cloud, lightning rod
Peacemaker, life taker
What's inside the silo?
- Clutch, "Wicker"

Let's hope that nobody lose their heads over this case.

Why Is Mark David Chapman Still Alive After All These Years?

"John Lennon's killer marks 25 years of infamy"...

As much as I love the Beatles, and as much as I appreciated the members' solo efforts, I never agreed with John Lennon's politics.

I never agreed with his atheism, materialism, self-professed social activism, justified hypocricy and Yoko Ono.

Why is this man
still alive?
But these were no grounds for what Chapman did on a cold New York night December 6, 1980.

I was feeling a little run down that night and went to sleep listening to Q107. I woke up to "Blackbird", followed by the announcement that John Lennon was shot and killed by Chapman.

For me, this was one of many days that the Music died. While Paul McCartney provided the bouyancy, George Harrison the riffs and Ringo Starr the beats, John provided the soul, the darkness, the edge. Chapman took them all away.

Everytime I hear Lennon's "Feels Like Starting Over", a creepy feeling of irony would wash over me. Queen's "The Show Must Go On" may also be considered ironic when listened in context of Freddie Mercury's battle with AIDS, but that Lennon tune had marked me deeply, if only because that song exuded optimism, hope that after all the time spent away from life's mainstream that there would be a second chance, a renaissance, a redemption.

Chapman took all of them away.

And now he languishes in prison, secluded from gen pop because of what he did.

[...] Chapman developed an obsession with J.D. Salinger's "The Catcher in the Rye," the landmark novel that focuses on a disaffected youth, Holden Caulfield, during a trip to New York City.

Though previously a great fan of the Beatles, Chapman began attaching Caulfield's favorite slander — "phony" — to Lennon. He made that assessment after seeing photos of Lennon atop his exclusive Manhattan apartment building, the Dakota.

"At some point, after looking at those pictures, I became enraged at him and something in me just broke," Chapman would explain later. "I remember saying in my mind, `What if I killed him?'"

"I felt that perhaps my identity would be found in the killing of John Lennon."

In a perfect world, Mark David Chapman would've been executed - retribution being justice's final say. But when you look at the Hell that has replaced his life, it's understandable that he deserved something far worse than the ultimate punishment.

And to this day, that Lennon song still haunts me.

Liberals defeated, PM to call election Tuesday: it's about damn time!

Little Paulyanna's minority government, rife with indecision, arrogance, emasculation, opportunism and simple corruption, went down in a simple motion of no-confidence.

AdScam, the Belinda Stronach affair, dithering and Paulyanna's own immaturity caused all the parties in opposition to rise in arms against the 38th seesion of Parliament.

Of the major federal party leaders, the NDP's Jack Layton was the first to share his reaction with reporters.

In a scrum outside the House of Commons, the NDP Leader blamed the "stubbornness" and "inflexibility" of the Liberals for the election campaign set to begin Tuesday.

"People know the NDP can get results in Parliament… and we're proud of that record," he told reporters, calling the coming campaign "wide open".
Wise words from a man whose party's chances of forming the next government are slightly better than Hell freezing over.

Appearing upbeat in his own first public appearance following the historic vote, Prime Minister Paul Martin took the stage in front of a boisterous gathering of party faithful just moments later.

"Hey, we've got a campaign to run," he joked, struggling to quiet his caucus before adding another quip. "I just wanna say a few brief words to all before you head back to yor ridings to get fitted for snowshoes," Martin laughed.

Then, the Liberal leader adopted a more serious tone to laud his party.

"All of us have a lot to be proud of and I cannot tell you how proud I am of you," he said, adding that Canadians will now have the chance to judge each party's record for themselves.
Be careful what you wish for, Paulyanna: you might wind up getting it up the ass. All the pork that you promised everyone prior to the motion didn't save your opportunistic butt this time.

As Martin spoke, Conservative Leader Stephen Harper was delivering his own confident caucus address.

"Set your sights not just on the next few weeks ... set your sights on the years ahead -- because our vision will look that far ahead," Harper said to cheers.

"Canadians need and they want and deserve a change. and to get that change we need a change in government ... A government that stands up for Canada -- a new Conservative government."
Now if we have a Conservative party whose leader has the right mix of charisma, pragmatism and backbone, Stephen, then we can vote you in.

But first and foremost, the Tories will have to work hard to regain our trust and our faith by not simply stating the facts, but by also doing a very effective propaganda campaign. Maybe by hiring some ex-KGB disinformation artists, you could reduce the Fibbing Libs' hold on the house to, let's say, 2 seats. Just like 1993.

But the lynchpins that are the keys to power in Canada are still Québec and Ontario. Without a doubt, the campaign to win the hearts, minds and souls of the electorates will make the Tet Offensive look like a teddy bears' picnic. Expect bloodshed, slander, rebuttals, facts, figures and huge bribes of pork for those who love and support the winning party the most.

And may the best man win.

Right, Stephen?

Don't Hate On Michelle Malkin Because She's A Conservative PINAY!

Why does a conservative person of colour get hated on while an Enemy from the same tribe is revered as a saint?

I just don't get it? Maybe it's the whole "terminal perpetual victim" complex that the Enemy promotes to the non-Anglo Saxons that the "progressive savage" is the only accptable minority.

This lovely lady shown on the right gets hated on by people who claim to know what's best for the masses. The New Jersey-based "One People's Project" - a group that I used to respect for its anti-racist and anti-fascist stand until recently - has her in its "Rogues Gallery". Korean-American "comic" and "activist" Margaret Cho has accused her of "race treason" - how Nuremburgish can you get? Hell, there's even a blog called "Malkin(s) Watch", as if this lady were a legion instead of a single, unitary person.

And if you Google this person along with an unsavoury epithet, you might get a little "lucky". After all, she is a "right-winger", right?

But conservatives don't pull punches and recall a time when everyone has to earn an entitlement and cannot claim victimhood to receive any special treatment. Michelle Malkin didn't pay for the priviledge to write whatever she damn well pleases: she writes whatever she damn well pleases. And she has the facts to back up her arguments.

So she did some "racial profiling" on some Japanese internees during WW ver 2.0, but that was in contect of an actual World War. And she is quite aware of the racial politics surrounding illegal immigration and false refugee claims. She's very much aware of the shitstorms caused by running against the tide of "progressivism", just like all good conservatives.

Which brings me to this article where she has to deal with a nosy interviewer (and other ignorant sloths)...

During one of countless book-related radio interviews this week, a liberal radio host insultingly asked me whether I write my own column. His question was prompted by vicious anonymous bloggers who portray me as a greedy Asian whore/dupe/brainwashing victim who simply parrots what my white slavemasters program into my empty little head. These critics have stepped up attacks on my husband Jesse as a fanatical right-wing puppeteer orchestrating all I do and say.

I assume these tinfoil-hat wearers also think I'm secretly wired during my TV and radio appearances, speeches, and debates-- you know, just like George Bush.
Obviously, those anonymous bloggers are probably the same ones who troll for celebrity pr0n and "luv ya' long time" AZN "sites".

You see, it's too easy to hate on a political opponent of colour - the North American political scene is (still) perceived to be a WASP-ish domain, and one side must have a fairly visible and recognisable enemy to vent its collective spleen onto. By rights, I should label Cho as a Kim Jong-Il agitprop strumpet and Howard Dean as a honkey psycho cracker. But these attacks will neither make things right nor win me any allies in my mission for World Domination. And Michelle Malkin has done the right thing by putting herself above the messy fray.

So, rather than hate-out on your fellow tribes-person or non-whitey on the other end of the political spectrum, you might as well do your homework on the issues that affect civilization.

And anyways, Michelle probably knows how to make better pansit and dinugguan than any of you sloths, anytime.

(Brought to you by a conservative Half-Flip who probably knows what goes into these dishes, but ain't tellin', that's all.)

Dissent vs. Desecration:
Grey Eagle And The Enemy

Courtesy of the Rott is this infuriating example of how some dissenters can go overboard and ruin the efforts of a servicewoman trying to honour her fallen comrades by executing a DOS attack.

(For the non-geeks: DOS is an acronym for "denial of service".)

Grey Eagle is the soldier sister in question and an author of a milblog detailing her experiences while on deployment. More on that later - she's on my "Roll Call" to your left. If it were anyone else, this incident would've been brushed off as an isolated incident - and even that would be just plain wrong in all meanings of the word.

The Rott's Web-Tsar, the Almighty Opinionated Orator Darth Misha, said...

Such classy little wastes of perfectly good protoplasm, our Lefty “Friends”, aren’t they?

Always bleating about freedom of speech, unless the speech in question happens to be speech with which they disagree, in which case they’ll happily do anything, including the commission of a felony (yes, you purulent prickwarts, hacking into private property is a felony. Never thought about that, did you? You may have plenty of time for doing just that some day in the future if you keep it up.), in order to make sure that anybody disagreeing with them is shut up.
As always, Misha has a way with words and seldom shows any mercy in dispensing them.

The problem is that in the name of dissent, there are certain people who are willing to inflict more damage to the innocent and their own cause by vandalising someone else's private property. Grey Eagle's milblog, like the Rott and Y-2-D, is private property. In spite of offering a point of view that not everyone is willing to accept, the milblog is not harming anyone. By executing a DOS, the Enemy has lowered itself to the level of the enemies against whom Grey Eagle is fighting.

Of course, the self-proclaimed "peace activists" can't do all that on their own, nor could they make a living off their "activism". During the Vietnam War, the Soviet KGB and GRU (military intelligence) had enough resources to fund the "activists" and provide disinformation. Amazingly, that kind of tactic worked - no weapons were used in defeating the US. Former Warsaw Pact spymaster Ion Mihai Pacepa wrote about this tactic in a National Review article...

KGB priority number one at that time was to damage American power, judgment, and credibility. One of its favorite tools was the fabrication of such evidence as photographs and "news reports" about invented American war atrocities. These tales were purveyed in KGB-operated magazines that would then flack them to reputable news organizations. Often enough, they would be picked up. News organizations are notoriously sloppy about verifying their sources. All in all, it was amazingly easy for Soviet-bloc spy organizations to fake many such reports and spread them around the free world.

[...] Many "Ban-the-Bomb" and anti-nuclear movements were KGB-funded operations, too. I can no longer look at a petition for world peace or other supposedly noble cause, particularly of the anti-American variety, without thinking to myself, "KGB."
I wouldn't be too surprised if the current batch of resistors have some extra "help" in their endeavours.

But back to Grey Eagle's site.

There's one section of her site that really touched me.

It was her tribute to the fallen servicewomen in the War On Terror.

It was pretty heartwrenching to see faces of women from all walks of life - students, mothers, daughters, sisters - women who made the supreme sacrifice to safeguard our freedoms and to help others attain the security that we North Americans take for granted too many times.

That alone is reason enough to respect a person's own cyberspace.

Nuff said. Out.

UPDATE (21:07 AST): I've underestimated the extent of Grey Eagle's pWn-ing...

Just to explain, as it seems to be a big question. When I add a new soldier to the tributes script/program it prints to the website "you have been hacked....Bush lied..." no matter what I type. So while it does not seem to have affected what I previously did, I cannot add anymore soldiers to my tribute. I can delete, but not add. But there have been many offers to fix or rebuild the website, which I hope to accept their offers and never have this happen again.
The Enemy shows neither mercy nor compassion: this female soldier deserves better. Support her.

A Rarity In Any Canadian Bookstore!
(or "Proof That There Is A G-d")

I was browsing around Smthbooks at Scotia Square when I decided to check out the political/current events section.

In amongst the politically "correct" and activist tomes, amongst the Chomskeys, the Moores and Naomi Kleins, there stood two of the most controversial titles by one of the most controversial conservative commentators, Ann Coulter.


I had a tough choice: would it be "Treason" or "How To Talk To A Liberal (I You Must)"? Should I enhance my anti-idiotarian credentials by buying either book or put it off until I get more money? Should I be content on reading rants online, or get something that doesn't require electricity and broadband connections?

In the end, I said "What the Hell?" and bought the latter book.

People on the side of the Enemy had made Ann to be the Wicked Bitch of the Western World, but nothing can be further from the truth, and the truth according to Ann hurts like Hell on a summer day. She doesn't advocate genocide, has a nice dry sense of humour, respects her enemies even if though she wants them roasting on a spit over the fires of reason and she has a lot of heart.

Not to mention the fact that she is kinda cute.

I wouldn't mind marrying a woman like that. If there's anyone like that in my neck of wood, I'd be happier and saner.

But this is Progressive Canada, the land where common-sense conservatives are an edangered species and moral and social relativism poison the wells of reason and resolve. Where socialised medicine is considered a national virtue and anyone with a pulse and a smile can be a Canadian and are entitled to rights whether they deserve it or not. And where polititians who rip off the public coffers to line their pockets sue to be entitled to their entitlements. (See "David Dingwall".) I just hope that the Great Undecided do the right thing come Election Time.

For carrying Ann Coulter... God love you, Smithbooks at Scotia Square!

How US College Campuses Get Radicalised.

NWS WARNING! An Incentive For Me To See The New Harry Potter Flick!

ohnotheydidnt: A Harry Potter Star is Naked.: the grrl who plays Fleur Delacour in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" set fires of a different kind in a film many years ago called "Bienvenue Chez les Rozes".

It's fairly understandable why there's been so many hits on the Livejournal: she's not that bad for a French witch.

You might say that she's more than willing to smoke up some Potter!

Debbie Schlussel Dares You To Drink - NOT!

Debbie Schlussel is part of my "Roll Call" to the left.

For a nice little Jewish girl who's not afraid to say that she's a (USA) conservative, one must wonder WTF she's doing with Holiday-themed drinks from the Jones Soda Company?

Stores around the country are pushing Jones Soda's "Holiday Pack." I tried it last week, and trust me, don't buy it. Save your $10 plus (for five bottles).

I like exotic flavors of pop (that's what we call "soda" here in Michigan), but this variety of "flavors" tastes terrible--every single flavor--even if it is 100% kosher and vegetarian.
Let's see: you have for your flavours - "Turkey and Gravy", "Brussels Sprouts", "Wild Herb Stuffing", "Cranberry" and "Pumpkin Pie".

Don't you just wanna run out and grab that "Holiday Pack" and enjoy a nice liquid supper, the Jones Soda way?

Ha... I don't think so. Neither would I.

Mercifully, the company has provided other flavours for the more discerning palate. (We Canucks have to put up with these available fizzy-pops. Not that all this would matter to me, eh?)

Even more mercifully, I doubt very much that the "HP" would make its way to my neck of wood.

Just a thought.

The Song They Couldn't Kill Lives!

"Ma Ya Hii / Ma Ya Huu / Ma Ya Ho-o / Ma Ya Ha-Ha..."

This has got to be one of the most feel-good riffs of the summer of 05.

An obscure Romanian pop tune by an equally obscure Romanian boy-band turned into a monster hit thanks to the internet.

And now... for your viewing pleasure: a collection of "Numa Numa" videos, courtesy of Google Video.

Admit it: you love that, don't you?

Mickey and Mallory Revisited

"Teens sought in Pa. murders found in Indiana"

And now for a "Natural Born Killer" understatement...

A friend of the family, Stephanie Mannon, 16, told AP that (David G.) Ludwig and (kara Beth) Borden had been seeing each other secretly.

"Their parents didn't approve of them being together'' because of the age difference, she said. "It wasn't because he was a shady character, because he wasn't.''

Now take a good hard look at David's pic. I'd sure like to meet a real shady character, because this guy looks a bit like a psycho axe-murderer than an obsessed boyfriend.

Then again, Woody Harrelson sure looked good while courting Juliette Lewis in Oliver Stone's train-wreck of a mindfuck of a movie.

I wonder if there would be a Maury Povich Show episode about it soon....

Oh... Say It Ain't So.

"16 students charged in alleged assault of girl": now is that fucked-up or what.

Somewhere on this continent, worse shit happens. It's just that this case happened in - where else? - "the world's safest city that works, eh?"™

The girl, 15, attends James Cardinal McGuigan Catholic Secondary School in the Jane and Finch area of North York. She allegedly endured assaults and harassment for more than a year.

Last week, police charged a 15-year-old boy with sexual assault, criminal harassment, and forcible confinement. A 17-year-old was also charged with sexual assault, assault, forcible confinement, and failure to comply with probation.

On Monday, police laid charges against 14 more students, bring the total number of people charged in the case to 16.
Obviously, there's something very, very wrong with this picture.

Was there a conspiracy to defame this munchkin, or is this a case of a "train" gone horribly wrong?

And not a moment too soon...

This week the provincial government is unveiling a new anti-bullying program. It's designed to make schools safe, and will include a place at every Ontario school where students can go if they are being terrorized.
As someone who had endured quite a bit of bullying as a kid in the public "school" system, this should've been there a long time ago.

But, as we Canadians know... it can't happen here, eh?

Yeah. Right. Next...

Somewhere In This World,
Somebody Loves
"Venus Cures All"

What are the grrlz in "Venus Cures All" doing nowadays?

IMO, they were the prototypical grrl-rawwk band that started their noisemaking as "Chicken Milk".

They evolved into the band whose unique claims to fame included their bassist's appearance in a video by "Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet". (She was the maraccas soloist, FYI.)

Come to think of it, what are the guys in "Shadowy Men..." doing nowadays?

Hmmmm... Sally Lee....

"If ye break faith with us who die..."

On this Remembrance Day 2005...

Remember those who served before us.

Respect those who serve now.

Recognise the prosperity, peace and freedom brought on by service.

To my brothers and sisters, in far-away lands, on the seas and in the skies, I'm with you.

To those who have sacrificed in many ways, in conflicts past and present, and survived in body and/or spirit, I salute you.

As one who serves, I'll never neglect the past, dismiss the present nor deny the future, lest I imperil the people who I protect.

Remember. Respect. Recognise. That is all.

Separatist Miffed At Billie-Jean

"Heil Québec Libre!"

CANOE -- CNEWS - Canada: Andre Boisclair lashes out at Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean over coke joke

André Boisclair is a favourite for the leadership of the Parti Québecois.

Young. Ambitious. Gay.

And interestingly enough, like young W, a blowhead.

But let's face it... everyone is entitled to his/her own vice.

So why does our new Governor General, Billie-Jean, making light of this man's vice.

Jean referred to Boisclair in a speech she gave at the annual Parliamentary Press Gallery dinner on Oct. 22. In her speech, Jean cracked several jokes about Boisclair, including one that played on the dual meaning of the word coke, and saying that Boisclair always follows the party "line."

Don't get me wrong: the PQ's simple agenda is to separate Québec from Canada, thereby setting the Maritimes adrift. These idealistic nouveau-hippie agitators have been going at it since the 60s, and the "sovereigntist" issue has a hard time dying in la belle province.

Generally, such parties promoting disruption of national unity should be banned.

But low blows such as this lame yéyo joke will only hasten the worst.

Speaking prior to a debate between PQ leadership hopefuls on Wednesday, Boisclair said he was shocked at Jean's behaviour before the 600 invited guests, including Prime Minister Paul Martin.

"The images speak for themselves and everyone who saw those images understand that they're out of place," Boisclair said.

"Mrs. Jean was not participating in a private event. Mrs. Jean was participating in a public event, televised, taped."
I don't blame Comrade Dré for throwing such a hissy fit, but for X-sakes, you'd never see W pulling such a stunt, eh?

Then again, Billie-Jean, handpicked by Paulyanna and a controversy in her own right, should've taken this snow-job offline.

After all, the Péquistas are more than a bunch of flakes.
