Holder and Incompitano, The Jokers

"Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano must be relieved.
Over the last few weeks, Attorney General Eric Holder has passed and lapped her in the race to be the most flagrantly incompetent Obama administration official in the War on Terror."

Obama Misleads on Court Decision

"In a demogogic bid to score populist points, Obama claimed that the decision striking down restrictions on corporate spending opened 'the floodgates for special interests -- including foreign corporations -- to spend without limit in our elections.' In fact, the justices explicitly left untouched a statute that bans election spending by foreign corporations, even 'indirectly.'"

Civilian Courts Vulnerable to Exploitation

"Siddiqui's defense team, funded in part by the Pakistani government, asserts that Lady al Qaeda is so mentally ga-ga that she should not have been allowed to take the witness stand.
The Crazy Jihadi tactic is in perfect sync with the al Qaeda training manual advising its operatives to claim victimhood status if on trial."

Imagine this nightmare courtroom scenario: Un hinged Jew-bashing, open mockery of American soldiers, juror intimidation and coldly calculated exploitation of US constitutional protections by a suspected al Qaeda defendant. Well, there's no need to wait for the Gitmo terror trial circuses. New York City is already getting a glimpse of the future. Jihadi scientist Aafia Siddiqui is on trial right now in a Manhattan federal court for the attempted murder and assault of US military personnel in Afghanistan's Ghazni province two years ago. She's an accomplished Karachi, Pakistan-born scientist who studied microbiology at MIT and did graduate work in neurology at Brandeis University before disappearing in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. Counterterrorism investigators connected Siddiqui and her estranged husband, anesthesiologist Dr. Mohammed Amjad Khan, to Saudi terror funders. Siddiqui was identified as an al Qaeda operative, financier and fixer by no less than 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed during US interrogations. Mohammed reportedly enlisted Siddiqui in a Baltimore-based plot to bomb gas stations, fuel tanks and bridges, and to poison water reservoirs in the greater Washington area. Siddiqui was taken into custody in Ghazni in July 2008 after attempting to shoot US military interrogators and FBI agents. Now, the savvy "terror mom" of three is pulling out all the stops to win a mistrial. Among her Cirque du Jihad antics:

* Demanding that jurors be genetically tested for a "Zionist or Israeli background" to ensure a fair and impartial jury of her Jew-hating peers.
* Ranting about 9/11 Israel conspiracies during voir dire.
* Screaming out loud during the testimony of US Army Capt. Robert Snyder, who was in the room in Ghazni when Siddiqui allegedly grabbed an M-4 rifle and proclaimed, "I hate Americans! Death to America!" Siddiqui's defense team, funded in part by the Pakistani government, asserts that Lady al Qaeda is so mentally ga-ga that she should not have been allowed to take the witness stand. The Crazy Jihadi tactic is in perfect sync with the al Qaeda training manual advising its operatives to claim victimhood status if on trial. To make matters worse, the New York Post reported this week that an "unidentified man in a white headdress" mouthed an obscenity at the Siddiqui trial and cocked his finger like a gun at two jurors. The jurors were let go; it remains unclear whether the thug in white headdress will be charged and what relation, if any, he has to Siddiqui. Would you answer a jury summons knowing you could end up sitting in front of a jihadi sympathizer on the loose who is mentally painting a target on your forehead? And would you trust the White House ringmasters and Justice Department terror-coddlers to protect you from harm? These suspects belong in controlled military tribunals, not federal courtrooms that are being turned into al Qaeda p.r. platforms. The O.J. Simpson spectacle of a smirking murder suspect, preening defense attorneys, a showboating judge and the judicial process run amok on cable TV 24/7 was bad enough. The 1993 World Trade Center bombing trial, which gave Osama bin Laden's network a multimillion-dollar legal team, free translation services, race-baiting defense witnesses and access to information that was allegedly used by jihadists to evade surveillance, was even worse. The specter of 10, 15, 20 Siddiqui-style courtroom carnivals -- at a cost of at least $1 billion to taxpayers -- threatens to throw our civilian court system into complete chaos. America can't afford to clown around with national security.

Dutch Wilders Prosecution Like Italy and Fallaci

Geert de Wilders

The notion of responsible speech appears regularly on college campuses and even in city public meetings in Cambridge MA on police abuses. If you can't talk about a problem how can you solve it? This is liberals censoring factual speech that they find inconvenient.

Oriana Fallaci

[From article]
"As the trial of Dutch MP Geert Wilders for offending Muslims unfolds in Amsterdam, I am reminded of Oriana Fallaci’s post-9/11 writings on how she saw Europe wasted from within by the alien cultural force of Islam.
Fallaci was a fearless journalist and author. And though critics faulted her for intemperate language, especially when it came to writing about Islam, Wilders’ trial might well confirm her fears about Europe and the West were not misplaced."
[. . .]
The demand by Europe’s officialdom — Canada’s officialdom is on the same page — that “free speech” must also meet the requirements of “responsible speech” when the subject is Islam is tantamount to repudiating Europe’s history that made her the cradle of the modern world of science and democracy."

Edwards' Money Lady

“When he sat down in a chair, Bunny told him, ‘That was one of President Kennedy’s favorite chairs to sit in!’ I know he had to have been smitten with that fact, too.” Huffman adds with a chuckle, “The very next week, the Edwards people called and they asked her for a million dollars.” 

[. . .]

she came to despise Young, who persisted in shaking her down, even after she told him the well was dry because she was having “liquidity issues.” According to the confidante, Young cheekily suggested that she take out a mortgage or perhaps sell some of her priceless paintings, to meet the "need." It was at this point that Bunny Mellon had enough."

Tim Geithner Talks Till He Walks

"Not a single member of either political party cut [Stammering Hank Paulson and Tim "Dead Man Talking" Geithner] any slack. As we used to say in Brooklyn, Paulson and Geithner got their asses kicked.
Isn't it amazing how a little fear of losing an election can snap even the laziest politicians into action?
[. . .]
I'd be shocked if Tim Geithner, lasts much longer as Treasury Secretary.
His mouth keeps moving, but Geithner continues to say incredibly stupid things -- like, insisting again yesterday that he in herited today's financial problems when in fact he was head of the New York Fed when this mess started."

[. . .]The meal, which a source said was "much friendlier toned" but far from a "love fest," came a week after Obama took direct aim at the banks by proposing a set of rules that limit growth and force them out of hedge funds, private equity and proprietary trading."

Also in attendance at the lunch were presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett, Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.

Holder Hires Terror Lawyers

Now you know why we first have to kill the lawyers. It's to keep them from saying stupid things. Roger Corbin, a former Long Island legislator, admitted filing false tax returns and lying about $229,000 he deposited. Prosecutors showed the money came from a developer who got more than $15 million in contracts in Corbin's district. But his lawyer says Corbin's the victim -- of low government salaries. "It was the financial sacrifices which he made in being an elected official that caused these problems," said Thomas Liotti. Arrrrgghhhhhh!

How Incompetent is Obama?

"American blacks today are more bitter and more racially enraged than ever before, after forty years of affirmative action. Affirmative action hasn't helped women, who now have to work two jobs, one at home and one for income, especially because so many men have walked away from their families under liberal cultural values. Reverse-racism has actively hurt generations of children, who have grown up in broken homes as a direct result of pernicious social policies which Obama has actually tried to make worse. One of the first things he did was to reverse Clinton's welfare reform so that social pathology in the black community can spread its poison even wider and deeper. Obama isn't good for black people -- but then, blacks consistently vote for those who do them the most harm."

Howard Zinn, Historian, Died

Howard Zinn was a wonderful decent human being. He served his country unlike many blowhards who type trash on the internet, and many elected blowhards. He shared his education with everyone unlike most academics. He participated in current events unlike most academics. He expressed his opinion unlike most people. The introduction to his book You Can't be Neutral on a Moving Train, made me cry. He was a friendly likable accessible human, unlike many academics and politicians.
