WTF

Wow. It seems like everybody who’s anybody is talking about this. No Sheeples Here has a post on it and I heard about it from Obi’s Sister.

It’s being reported that 17 Afghan soldiers here for training are loose in the US, and have been for about 2 years or less and we are just now hearing of it. The reports are somewhat vague as to the duration of individual cases although I might infer that they have been filtering out into the population in small numbers.

Some are questioning why the reports are only being released now. Fox News quotes an unnamed senior law enforcement official:

“Although we are vigilant and need to work toward not allowing this to happen,” the official said, this alert should “not necessarily” be described as “a national security threat, more of a ‘hey these guys violated our laws and we need to find them.'”

OK sport, maybe you could look for about 12 million or so illegal immigrants while you’re at it. Both cases are quite similar with the exception that we transported these possible terrorists here at taxpayer expense. I hear we have some neat new detention facilities in which to house these guys, should they ever be caught. They could learn basket weaving with the rest of  ’em.

I can tell you the first place I would look for these guys, it’s a place that they would fit right in, never to be noticed.

The Obama Administration.

Glenn Beck sent out an email on it earlier today and Fox also has some info, including the names and Memeorandum has more info along with Scared Monkeys, The Jawa Report, Weasel Zippers, Confederate Yankee, Atlas Shrugs, Liberty Pundits Blog, Patterico’s Pontifications and And So it Goes in Shreveport

Another question, why don’t they post the photos? Are they afraid someone might recognize one of them? Am I supposed to go up to random Afghan looking dude and ask “Hey, aren’t you… *picks out random name from list* Mohammad Nasim Fateh Zada, born 12/4/1966?” I can’t even pronounce it. Besides, that would be racial profiling, wouldn’t it?

As Obi’s Sister says, “What could go wrong?”

WTF! Every day this country looks more and more like a clip from a Saturday Night Live skit. What kind of bizzaro world is it where a criminal gets better treatment in a detention center than in the country from whence they came?

It seems ICE is in negotiations with it’s confinement contractor to “improve” their detention facilities:

Overall, the facilities are expected to be less prison-like, offering freer movement for detainees, fewer pat downs and better access to legal resources. The agreement calls for fresh vegetables and access to self-serve beverages along with cooking and exercise classes, according to a list released by ICE.

CCA will soften “the look for the facility with hanging plants, flower baskets, new paint colors, different bedding and furniture” and allow lengthy visits from friends and family who can provide outside packages or food for special celebrations under changes to be made over the next six months.

Hey, GREAT NEWS! Now we can bring Uncle Carlos that birthday cake he’s been asking for, except now we won’t have to put a file in it. We’ll just hand it to him along with the knife, gun and keys to the stolen car we left down the road!

Then the family arrives at the facility to find that it’s improved so much, they want to move in! “Arrest me! Arrest me!”

I tell you what, my house could stand some new drapes and a coat of paint too. You think I might could “detain” some of those aliens for you? On second thought, I retract.

Wait, it gets better:

ICE Director John Morton announced last year that the agency would make detention facilities less prison-like because immigrant detainees are being held on civil immigration charges, not criminal offenses…

Yes, you read that correctly. More language calisthenics from the apologists in ICE. Being illegal is not considered criminal. Question: Hey, Mr. Morton Moron, what part of illegal don’t you understand?”

Representatives of the detention officers union sound to me like the only ones with their collective heads out of their arses.

“It’s absolutely insane, the changes they’re making,” said Chris Crane, president of AFGE Council 118/ICE, the union that represents 7,000 ICE officers but not the contractors. “It just makes for an absolutely unsafe environment, not only for the detainees, but for the officers.”

He contends that many detainees could be drug dealers or gang members – even if they haven’t been convicted.

How about instead of spending money painting and otherwise sprucing up the prison and teaching them the fine art of basket weaving, we deport the river swimming, fence jumping, desert crossing law breaking criminals. What do these brain surgeons in ICE think this is going to do to deter future illegals from coming here in the first place?!

I’ll tell you what.

Nothing.

All it is, is more chaos and subjugation heaped upon the backs of the American people.

Had enough yet?

UPDATE: Does Michelle Malkin read the Robot?

Via Atlas Shrugs:

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, in which President Obama told him that he was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the stepson of Muslim stepfather, that his half brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda.

I’m shocked SHOCKED I TELL YOU!

Pamela Geller has the rest of the story, and as one might expect, an avalanche of background data.

UPDATE: Donald Douglas at American Power picks up the story along with Memeorandum, Another Black Conservative, Doug Ross and The Right Scoop.

From Rory Cooper at the Heritage Foundation comes word that among the new statues unveiled today in Virginia at a memorial commemorating the occasion will be the bust of a dictator.

…when over 160,000 troops from the United States, Britain, France and Canada bravely stormed the beaches of Normandy, marking a turning point in World War II. In Bedford, Virginia, a memorial to the invasion will be unveiled with statues of western Allied leaders, including President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Harry Truman. The memorial will also include a bust of dictator Joseph Stalin.

WTF? On American soil?

Some would argue the point that Stalin in fact had a major influence as an ally in the conflict. But others, such as Dr. Lee Edwards, chairman of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, disagree with the inclusion.

Since the fall of the Soviet Union, statues of Joseph Stalin have been torn down all over Europe and even in the former Soviet Union itself. The world is closer than ever before to a consensus on the evils of communism and Stalin’s primary role in the worst crimes of the last century. And yet a statue of Stalin is included in the National D-Day Memorial…

Torn down in Europe only to be reconstructed in America. They probably could have saved a few bucks from the artists commission if they would have just boxed up the ones they were tearing down in Russia and shipped them over here. I bet the freaks in Austin, which happens to be Texas’ liberal mecca, would love to have one on display on 6th Street right next to Chairman Mao and Obummer himself.

This is sickening. On D-Day?

I wonder how long that statue will last.

Governor Patrick, your pod is ready. Any coincidence he’s from Chicago? Maybe that’s where they moved Area 51.
Ever see the movie “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” or “They Live”? It’s like these politicians think that nothing will happen to them, if only they cooperate and sell us down the river…

H/T BW via email

In the WTF department, it seems there is a tampon* of a man named Robert Leslie Hymers III, the son of Robert Leslie Hymers Jr. who is the leader of a Protestant cult once named the Open Door Community Churches, and the  son has decided to feud with a certain Blog Mistress named Little Miss Attila. (Full disclosure: I love her blog.)

I would categorize this as a “bad idea.”

In the past, she apparently shared some of her forthright thoughts and comments regarding her experiences in his fathers “church”, and he’s none too happy about it. He’s evidently asked the FBI to investigate stalking behavior from Miss Attila.

How does one stalk from a blog? Inquiring minds want to know.

Dude.

First off, you need to look again at the title of the lady’s blog before you decide to do something this imbecilic.

Secondly, have you noticed the name of her blog?

Thirdly, if your aim was to quiet the whole thing down, well, you might  be inclined to re-think that little strategy now. Maybe just a bit.

H/T TCOTS

*because Doug beat me to douche-bag.

Right up front, I must apologize. Using the term Baptist in the same sentence, or even the same article with a “man” like Fred Phelps is to disrespect Baptists everywhere. I was raised Baptist and the vile hatred these people spew is beyond contempt.

As an example, let me point you to the latest atrocious demonstration they are planning in Louisiana this Saturday at the funeral of a fallen American soldier. The motorcade and funeral of a hero and defender of freedom will be picketed as he is lain to rest by the very clueless people he died defending.

That’s some fine gratitude there Fred. I hope you choke on it.

I first heard of this from a certain corndog loving blogger and soon found that others such as Pat at So it Goes in Shreveport, and Bob at The Camp of the Saints had joined the cacophonous outrage that surrounds the stupidity.

But wait, there’s more! According to the appropriately named Lipton T. Bagg, at the newly bloggrolled website Viewed From The Right:

Beside protesting at the funerals of SPC Joshua Tomlinson in Minden, LA. (PGR is on this one, I understand) and Ronnie James Dio in Los Angeles, Westboro will also be doing multiple protests at Arlington National Cemetery, Ft. Leavenworth National Cemetery in KS., Boston and Lexington, MA. and in Portland, OR.

This is a travesty beyond comprehension.  To think they were educated within our own borders speaks volumes to the underlying problem these maroons represent. How can these people be Americans? They surely haven’t been properly educated as to what has made our country great. At least what it was before the progressives gained a foothold in government.

I understand moral and political outrage. Most times I think there should be more of it, and I don’t disagree with their right to protest, I just wish they would find another, more appropriate way to vent their anger. This soldier was the instrument of policy, not the maker of it. Take your protest to Washington, not the funerals of brave defenders of the very freedoms you enjoy. For that, you are awarded the title “douche-bag”.

Knowing the members of this hate-cult will never take the advice offered here, to the people who would stand by our soldiers, I will pass on a suggestion or two from the comments at Pat’s blog:

Janet said… At one of the other funerals where the WBC picketed, some students counter protested by holding up white sheets to shield the family from the picketers. What an awesome, peaceful way to take the wind out of their sails. It would be amazing to see that become a trend…

Also, stolen from Pat’s comment section, is this excellent counter measure from First Baptist Minden:

First Baptist Minden said… In response to the Westboro protest group, First Baptist Church Minden is providing a way for you to positively and to peacefully express your support. So for every minute that the protestors are on site, we are asking you to pledge a per minute monetary amount. ALL the proceeds will be given directly to the widow of a TRUE HERO, SPC. JOSHUA TOMLINSON. So the longer they choose to stay and protest, the more it will benefit SPC. JOSHUA TOMLINSON’S family.

If you would like to help, you can print and fill out this card and bring it by the church office, email it to fbcminden@firstminden.org or mail it to the church office at:

FBC Minden
ATTN: TOMLINSON FUND
301 Pennsylvania Ave.
Minden, LA 71055

Or you can call the Church Office at: 318-377-4434

I tried the FB page link. It appears to be down. The First Baptist Minden link should be working however.

Read more on this at My Bossier and an invitation  here, and at Andy’s Place, both also added to the blogroll.

God Bless America and the men and women who defend her.

UPDATE: Looks like the Westboro folks were a no-show. Good. Lipton T. Bagg has video of the patriots who lined the streets to honor this man and his service. Warms my heart to see Americans standing on principle.

I can’t believe my tin-clad ears. When I hear those who I once considered hardened republicans come out softening the base with statements that mean in effect “it’s a lost cause”, my stomach churns.

I heard Fred Thompson on Hannity yesterday in effect surrendering the Kagan nomination as a given, my radio caught a tongue lashing.

Poor radio. It’s not your fault.

It’s the fault of wishy washy conservatives who are scared to pick a fight. What they don’t understand is that we are still pissed about Health Care, bailouts, take-overs and our loss of freedoms and money, in effect EVERYTHING this regime is doing and wishes to do. I have one word for you republicans and conservatives.

OBSTRUCTION

Oppose everything Obama, Pelosi and Reid want to do. At the very least make it harder to get these things accomplished. That is what we expect you to do. If you bend over and take it, we are paying attention and you will be ousted with the rest of the mongrels when the time comes.

That’s all for now, If I go on, this blog will lose its PG-13 rating.

UPDATE: Wyblog has a fine example of why my head is about to assplode.

UPDATE II: I wrote earlier that the wishy washy conservatives are scared to pick a fight. I was wrong. They aren’t scared to pick a fight. What I should have written is they are afraid to fight at all, because we are in a fight already and although we didn’t start it, we should damn well be willing to finish it or to go down swinging.

Here is my point. The progressives have infiltrated the ranks of all of the parties and should be ousted from every nook and cranny of government, if that means that all we can do for now is to not allow another fox in the hen house, then that is what I expect them to do! And if, in the mean time, you show yourself to be a RINO, you just put a target on your back as well.

There, hopefully I made it through that without too many expletives.

Now I’m off to draw Mohammed. Got to get ready for Thursday.

Pundit and Pundette have a new post up:

In-our-face Ground Zero mosque to open on 9/11/2011

For all those Americans too mind-numbed by multi-culti political correctness to read the writing on the wall…  emphasis robot

While I understand the PC angle and the qualifying adjectives, still, I must say “I resemble that remark, even if it wasn’t pointed at me.”

I must also ask the planners, with utmost sincerity and resolve..

A mosque at the site of the World Trade Center? WTF?

There is much more info to be had at P&P’s place. I suggest you check it out.
