Geert Wilders Fitna: Watch

Here is Wilders sixteen minute film, I thought it rather tame, he's doing nothing more than telling it like it is.

This is the blurb from the host.

On the 28th of March was left with no other choice but to remove the film "fitna" from our servers following serious threats to our staff and their families. Since that time we have worked constantly on upgrading all security measures thus offering better protection for our staff and families. With these measures in place we have decided to once more make this video live on our site. We will not be pressured into censoring material which is legal and within our rules. We apologise for the removal and the delay in getting it back, but when you run a website you don't consider that some people would be insecure enough to threaten our lives simply because they do not like the content of a video we neither produced nor endorsed but merely hosted.

Christmas Comes Early For Ron And Martin

"she needs more of ze punishment!"

Well it couldn't happen to a nicer guy, surely this is Mosley gone gone gone.

Let us have a look at the headline from The Screws, proprietor Rupert Murdoch

F1 boss Max Mosley has sick Nazi orgy with 5 hookers

Son of fascist Hitler lover in sex shame

Now I'm not one to deny a fellow his sexual peccadilloes but getting the arse whipped off you on film is not the most desirous of things, especially when you have enemies, and I reckon you have your share of those Maxy baby.

But it's not the number of enemies that count when it comes to this little tale of pervery rather it's the quality of said enemy

I think it's no accident that the News of the World, proprietor Rupert Murdoch, splashed this all over the front page, because sometimes when a newspaper, The Times, proprietor Rupert Murdoch, is served with a writ for libel it's not totally out of the question that said proprietor, fights back, and fights back in the dirtiest of ways and they don't come any dirtier than Murdoch.

In short Max you've fucked up, fucked up big style. Issuing a writ against The Times because Martin Brundle dared to tell the truth about your endless harmful campaign against Ron Dennis and McLaren was, to put it mildly, a tad imprudent.

Bye bye Max, don't let the door catch your arse.

FORMULA One motor racing chief Max Mosley is today exposed as a secret sado-masochist sex pervert.

The son of infamous British wartime fascist leader Oswald Mosley is filmed romping with five hookers at a depraved NAZI-STYLE orgy in a torture dungeon. Mosley— a friend to F1 big names like Bernie Ecclestone and Lewis Hamilton— barks ORDERS in GERMAN as he lashes girls wearing mock DEATH CAMP uniforms and enjoys being whipped until he BLEEDS.

The multi-millionaire son of Sir Oswald, who was a pal of Adolf Hitler, plays a concentration camp commandant in a FIVE-HOUR torture chamber video.

Mosley—the most powerful man in motor-racing—barks orders in German as he WHIPS two hookers dressed in striped uniforms reminiscent of AUSCHWITZ garb while girls in Nazi uniforms look on.

At one point the wrinkled 67-year-old—who publicly likes to give the impression he has put his father's evil legacy behind him—yells "she needs more of ze punishment!" while brandishing a LEATHER STRAP over a brunette's naked bottom. more and video.

And then we have today's follow up from, where else but The Times.

Max Mosley, one of the most powerful men in world sport, was under pressure to resign as boss of Formula One’s governing body last night after he was exposed enjoying a Nazi-style orgy with five prostitutes.

Jewish groups condemned the behaviour of Mosley, 67, whose father, Sir Oswald, was the leader of the British Union of Fascists and a friend of Adolf Hitler.

And every dog must have it's day.

Martin Brundle, the driver-turned-pundit who was recently the subject of a libel action brought by Mr Mosley, said: “It’s not appropriate behaviour for the head of any global body such as the FIA.”more

George Wallace "The Little Judge" and All Round Good Ol' Boy

I do hope Ethan Persoff doesn't mind me posting the entire strip (to save you opening all windows) of what I found a rather fascinating and probably unique comic sixteen page political manifesto.

It was only searching for a Montgomery graphic to adorn today's On This Day post that I happened on this comic book (and other publications) blog with a difference. Please pay him a visit as I shall be doing after this post, I think it might turn out to be a treasure trove.

Easier for me to post the introduction by Ethan Persoff but I cannot go without asking the rhetorical question, just what would be the average IQ of the person that this comic was to target.

Kind of reminds me of the tale of Billy Bob Bodean, who moved from Bumfuck Alabama to Scrotumville Georgia and the average IQ of both towns went up.

ALABAMA NEEDS "THE LITTLE JUDGE" - GEORGE C. WALLACE FOR THE BIG JOB - 1960/1961 Pro-Segregation Comic Book commissioned directly by George Wallace during his campaign for Governor of Alabama. This booklet is credited as one of the principle reasons Wallace won the gubernatorial election, later allowing him to become one of the South's most iconic and hostile voices against Integration and Civil Rights. GEORGE WALLACE FOR THE BIG JOB is also one of the most covered up pieces of comic book history, as most copies were destroyed or hidden away. We present it now, all sixteen pages, in full, for the official and permanent record -- Ethan Persoff,

Your Kid Dies Of Neglect, Play The God Card

These parents should not be prosecuted in any shape or form.

Rather a strange statement coming from me you might query? let us look at two cases, one contemporary one from 2007.

Parents Pick Prayer Over Doctors, Girl Dies.

WESTON, Wis. Police are investigating an 11-year-old girl's death from an undiagnosed, treatable form of diabetes after her parents chose to pray for her rather than take her to a doctor.

An autopsy showed Madeline Neumann died Sunday from diabetic ketoacidosis, a condition that left too little insulin in her body, Everest Metro Police Chief Dan Vergin said.

She had probably been ill for about a month, suffering symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, excessive thirst, loss of appetite and weakness, the chief said Wednesday, noting that he expects to complete the investigation by Friday and forward the results to the district attorney.

The girl's mother, Leilani Neumann, said the family believes in the Bible and that healing comes from God, but she said they do not belong to an organized religion or faith, are not fanatics and have nothing against doctors. more

Do I have a problem with these parents? not at all at all.

Why not? Because God is involved, and where God is involved the State absolves all things including the right to life.

Mount Vernon leukemia patient, 14, dies after rejecting transfusions

A 14-year-old boy who refused blood transfusions in his fight against leukemia -- based on religious beliefs -- died Wednesday night in Seattle, hours after a Skagit County judge affirmed his right to reject the treatment.

Dennis Lindberg, of Mount Vernon, died around 6 p.m. at Children's Hospital & Regional Medical Center in Seattle, according to KING-5 television. As a Jehovah's Witness, Lindberg objected to receiving blood. Doctors had said he needed it to survive his cancer treatment.

In court Wednesday, Superior Court Judge John Meyer said that Lindberg, though in the eighth grade, was old enough to know that refusing blood transfusions might amount to a "death sentence," and that he had the right to make that decision.more

So there you have it, not a problem, but wait a minute you might say, one child is nine and the parents didn't seek medical attention and the other is fourteen and made his own decision.

That might well be the case, so all I can say is what kind of brainwashing was this kid subjected to over four years by, in this case his aunt, that death was preferable to the promised horrors of eternal damnation and purgatory that awaited him if he accepted a blood transfusion?

What really burns me about all this, the obvious apart, is the goddamn judge who obviously has a cross stuck so far up his arse that all this and his ruling make perfect sense.

And let us not loose sight of just what are the rights of a fourteen year old to act freely in other areas of life. In ninety nine percent of all things he is just a boy, a child in fact, and we know how America seeks to protect it's precious children and keep them young and pure, they are after all only children.

They are only children until they want to die for Jesus or commit a crime and then in many instances the State decides that they are children no more and charges and tries them in a court of law as adults, but that's the way it is in the One Nation Under God.

A more comprehensive report on the Lindberg case here.

Mugabe Warns.....


Black Bob is at it again, he's some player I tell you. Would you care to hazard a guess as to what the election result will be?

Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has warned his opponents not to protest if they do not win elections on Saturday.

"Just dare try it," said the 84-year-old leader at one of his final campaign rallies. "We don't play around while you try to please your British allies."

It was this however that really caught my eye, the level of bullshit and disconnect sounds like it could have come straight out of the Whitehouse.

"People know the contribution he has made to the well-being of Zimbabwe and Zimbabweans in particular. So they love him and they want him to continue leading them until he completes the goals of the revolution."more

Hard Hard Time: Supermax

I did on one occasion watch Bill Maher mention the "greatest country on earth" and in his inimitable way asked the question, Who says so, the eighty five percent of arrogant dipshit Americans who don't even own a fucking passport?

I could, but I won't, make a list of all that ails America, American society and most importantly the American psyche.

The same psyche that starts at the very top with the endless "Kick arse because we can" attitude and works it's way down through a para-military police force that is totally out of control to a prison system and it's employees that should be the shame of any society that aspires to wear the label of "Civilised."

I shall not enter into a diatribe for it has all been said before, you only have to search the labels "Prison Nation" and "Police," I will just leave you with a short sentence that I came across, part of which I used as a previous title.

The prison authorities, more often than not, are persons of limited intellectual capacity and of authoritarian attitudes whose primary penological goal is to maintain order.

And if anybody wants to try and convince me that America deserves the tag of greatest nation I would be glad to listen to your argument.

Torture in Our Own Backyards: The Fight Against Supermax Prisons

Imagine living in an 8-by-12 prison cell, in solitary confinement, for eight years straight. Your entire world consists of a dank, cinder block room with a narrow *window* only three inches high, opening up to an outdoor cement cage, cynically dubbed, "the yard." If you're lucky, you spend one hour five days a week in that outdoor cage, where you gaze up through a wire mesh roof and hope for a glimpse of the sun. If you talk back to the guards or act out in any way, you might only venture outside one precious hour per week.

You go eight years without shaking a hand or experiencing any physical human contact. The prison guards bark orders and touch you only while wearing leather gloves, and then it's only to put you in full cuffs and shackles before escorting you to the cold showers, where they watch your every move.

You cannot make phone calls to your friends or family and must "earn" two visits per month, which inevitably take place through a Plexiglass wall. You are kept in full shackles the entire time you visit with your wife and children, and have to strain to hear their voices through speakers that record your every word. With no religious or educational programs to break up the time or elevate your thoughts, it's a daily struggle to keep your mind from unravelling. more

*window* If indeed the cell even has a window. there are Supermax facilities where the secure housing units (SHU) are sixty feet underground and like all such places the cell lights shine twenty four seven.

McCain: Too Old By Far


And too many "senior Moments."

This piece from Arianna makes a rather good follow on from the "Extremely So" article further down postings.

I like the turn of phrase but Arianna does let Lieberman off rather lightly, unlike myself, when she describes him as "McCain's chief lady in waiting,"

A McCain Moment: Do You Want Four More Years Of This

For those who were too busy watching Rev. Jeremiah Wright damn America for the 10,000th time to hear about McCain, let's review: at a stop in Jordan last week, McCain made the ludicrous claim that Al Qaeda insurgents were being trained in Iran*. Asked again about it, he dug in deeper, claiming it was "common knowledge and has been reported in the media that al-Qaeda is going back into Iran and receiving training and are coming back into Iraq from Iran, that's well known."

A few moments later, McCain's chief lady in waiting, Joe Lieberman, leaned forward and whispered in his ear. McCain promptly offered a quick rewrite: "I'm sorry, the Iranians are training extremists, not al-Qaeda."more

And if by some rare chance you're not convinced, have a basin-full of this.

Fresh off his eighth Iraq visit, Sen. John McCain declared Monday that "we are succeeding" and said he wouldn't change course — even as the U.S. death toll rose to 4,000 and the war entered its sixth year.Raw Story

The Planet Is Fucked: Plastic Rubbish Edition

The situation on Medway described below is far from unique, plastic rubbish effects the whole of the Pacific rim with the the Hawaiian Islands suffering just as badly as this deadly flotsam makes its endless circuitous route around the Pacific.

Our environment correspondent David Shukman is on the remote Pacific island of Midway to report on the threat of plastic rubbish drifting in the ocean.

Plastic debris collects around the island, scene of a seminal World War II battle, with serious consequences for its wildlife. David will be reporting on the issue this week for the BBC website, radio and TV.more

Oh Do Come In Officer

I'm having trouble believing what I've just read. Stroll on!

Boston police officials, surprised by intense opposition from residents, have significantly scaled back and delayed the start of a program that would allow officers to go into people's homes and search for guns without a warrant.

The program, dubbed Safe Homes, was supposed to start in December, but has been delayed at least three times because of misgivings in the community. March 1 was the latest missed start date.

Commissioner Edward F. Davis has been taken aback by the criticism. Davis promoted Safe Homes as a voluntary program that would help overwhelmed, frightened parents and guardians by removing guns from their homes without fear of prosecution.more

Bush: A Funny Kind Of Christian


Somewhere in the Middle East, Jesus Christ is strapped to a bench, his head wrapped in clingfilm. He furiously sucks against the plastic. A hole is pierced, but only so that a filthy rag can be stuffed back into his mouth. He is turned upside down and water slowly poured into the rag. The torturer whispers religious abuse. If you are God, save yourself you fucking idiot. Fighting to pull in oxygen through the increasingly saturated rag, his lungs start to fill up with water. Someone punches him in the stomach.

Perhaps this is how we ought to be re-telling the story of Christ's passion. For ever since the cross became a piece of jewellery, it has been drained of its power to sicken. Even before this the Romans had taken their hated instrument of torture and turned it into the logo of a new religion. Few makeovers can have been so historically significant. The very secular cross was transformed into a sort of club badge for Christians, something to be proud of.more

Extremely So If You're Really Looking For An Answer

What gives more weight to the article and the writers questions is the very fact that the Republican nominee for the next President of the United States is John, lets bomb the shit out of Iran, fucking McCain!

Happy Anniversary, America!

How Lethally Stupid Can One Country Be?

Watching George W. Bush in operation these last couple of weeks is like having an out-of-body experience. On acid. During a nightmare. In a different galaxy.

As he presides over the latest disaster of his administration, (No, it’s not a terrorist attack - that was 2001! No, it’s not a catastrophic war - that was 2003! No, it’s not a drowning city - that was 2005! This one is an economic meltdown, ladies and gentlemen!) bringing to it the same blithe disengagement with which he’s attended the previous ones, you cannot but stop and gaze in stark, comedic awe, realizing that the most powerful polity that ever existed on the planet twice picked this imbecilic buffoon as its leader, from among 300 million other choices.

Seeing him clown with the Washington press corps yet once again - and seeing them fawn over him, laugh in all the right places, and give him a standing ovation, also yet once again - is the equivalent of having all your logic circuits blown simultaneously. Truly, the universe has a twisted and deeply ironic sense of humor. Monty Python is about as funny - and as stiff - as Dick Nixon, by comparison.more

Dirty Bomb Cominig To A Town Near You?


Why you might ask is Paul Craig Roberts writing about Polonium-210, radio active teapots, Litvinenko and Vlad the poisoner?

Read on through the bones of the case and check out his hypothesis.

America's next 9/11

The media used the Litvinenko case as sensational propaganda against Russian President Putin and then tossed it aside. For those whose memories of the case have faded, Alexander Litvinenko was a former KGB officer living in England who died in 2006, apparently from the radioactive isotope Polonium-210.

The British government encouraged the tale that Russian President Putin had sent Andrei Lugovoi to poison Litvinenko’s tea at a meeting on November 1, 2006. The story appealed to people brought up on James Bond thrillers, but the story never made any sense. Polonium 2-10 is a rare and tightly controlled substance as likely to contaminate the assassin as the victim. There are far easier and more effective ways of killing someone.more
Afterthought. I read some good while ago about all the bullshit surrounding amateur/homemade dirty bombs.

Bangla Cartoonist Arifur Rahman Released


I reported about this fellow back in September, well it would appear he has been sat in jail cell for the last six months.

Maybe he should look on the bright side, he still has his head on his shoulders, but I can't help but think it wouldn't be a very pleasant six months for him.

Previous including the offensive cartoon, it don't take much I tell ye.

Cartoon Capers, They're At It Again: Arifur Rahman

A cartoonist in Bangladesh who was jailed after the government said his drawings were insulting to Muslims has been released, prison officials say.

The country's Deputy Inspector General of prisons, Maj Shamsul Haider Siddiqui, said that Arifur Rahman was released on the orders of a court.

He said that the police official bringing charges against him repeatedly failed to appear in court.

Mr Rahman is a former cartoonist for the Bengali-language daily Prothom Alo.

Last year Bangladesh's home minister said that Mr Rahman had hurt the sentiments of the people.more
