How can you tell a Media Moonbat?

By the main premise of their essay...

Muslims hate us because of a fake Quran story.
The Guantanamo Prison was the site of the phoney story.
Muslim hatred will make it easier to recruit criminals known as Terrorists.
Terrorists kill Americans.

Therefore, if we destroy Guantanamo Prison, there won't be any fake stories about Koran desecration. Muslims will love us again and stop creating criminals aka Terrorists who kill -- Americans.

The more they write this inane drivel, the dumber these media types sound.

Let me give you some context for this morning's rant:

This morning as I watched Bob Schieffer's interview the Joint Chief of Staff Gen. Myers, Tom Friedman of NYT was mentioned. It seems Friedman has written an essay extolling the virtues of abandoning Guantanamo Prison because it has become a source of embarrassment for the US Military. Silly me, I thought Newsweek got embarrassed. Anyway, here's Tom...

Remember when your Mother told you sex could make you go blind! Well, here's proof that "Mama was right!"

Researchers at the University of Minnesota Medical School in the US identified seven men who developed vision problems after taking Viagra.

The team, writing in the Journal of Neuro-ophthalmology,said it brought the total number of reported cases to 14.

The seven men, aged between 50 and 69 years old, had all suffered from a swelling of the optic nerve within 36 hours of taking Viagra for erectile dysfunction.

Six experienced vision loss within 24 hours, although only one had problems with both eyes.

The condition, known as nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), causes a rapid reduction of vision and can, in the most serious cases, lead to blindness.

here's the official memorandum in it's entirety...MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING ON JUDICIAL NOMINATIONS

We respect the diligent, conscientious efforts, to date, rendered to the Senate by Majority Leader Frist and Democratic Leader Reid. This memorandum confirms an understanding among the signatories, based upon mutual trust and confidence, related to pending and future judicial nominations in the 109th Congress.

This memorandum is in two parts. Part I relates to the currently pending judicial nominees; Part II relates to subsequent individual nominations to be made by the President and to be acted upon by the Senate's Judiciary Committee.

We have agreed to the following:

Part I: Commitments on Pending Judicial Nominations

A. Votes for Certain Nominees. We will vote to invoke cloture on the following judicial nominees: Janice Rogers Brown (D.C. Circuit), William Pryor (11th Circuit), and Priscilla Owen (5th Circuit).

Charter Schools Are Better!

A report from the Associated Press released yesterday highlighted that Charter schools outperformed public schools by 33 percent. Big deal, we all knew that would be the case! The question we all want to know is why? As usual, the study doesn't ask the hard question, so we can't address the root problem of academic under-achievement.

California's charter schools are 33 percent more likely to meet their academic goals than traditional public schools, a study released Wednesday found.

Classroom-based charter middle schools stood out in particular, with 81 percent meeting the state-set goals for student improvement, compared with 54 percent of traditional schools, according to EdSource, a Palo Alto-based nonpartisan organization that studies public education.

Researchers looked at demographically similar students who were at the same academic starting point, using scores from California's high school exit exam and the Academic Performance Index, which includes results fr…

Linda Foley Starts Easongate II

This is outrageous. Ms. Foley needs to either provide proof of her allegations, or she needs to shut up!

May 19, 2005

The president of a group representing reporters worldwide is accusing U.S. soldiers of committing atrocities without offering any evidence to back the charge up.

Appearing in St. Louis on Friday, Newspaper Guild President Linda Foley complained:

"What outrages me as a representative of journalists is that there�s not more outrage about the number, and the brutality, and the cavalier nature of the U.S. military toward the killing of journalists in Iraq."

In case anyone missed the point, Foley restated her allegation:

"They target and kill journalists ... uh, from other countries, particularly Arab countries like Al -, like Arab news services like Al-Jazeera, for example. They actually target them and blow up their studios with impunity. ..."

Foley's remarks, which were aired Wednesday night on Sinclair Broadcasting's "The Point," drew ou…

Sharpton: Dean's DNC Excludes Blacks

The Rev. Al Sharpton blasted Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean on Tuesday, saying that under his leadership, African-Americans have been excluded from top Democratic Party positions.

"I'm taking Dean to task right now for the lack of black inclusion at the highest levels of the Democratic Party," Sharpton told WWRL radio hosts Steve Malzberg and Karen Hunter. "It's the lowest in thirty years."

The Harlem firebrand and one-time presidential candidate said that as things stand now, the Republican Party is making more progress including blacks than Dean's team.

"We ought to have more to show [for our support]," he complained. "And we should ask why, as the Republicans, ironically, are …

Worrying about the right things

This is for my liberal readers who let their worry think for them.

By Ginger Rutland, The Sacramento Bee
May 8, 2005

I know Janice Rogers Brown, and she knows me, but we're not friends. The associate justice of the California Supreme Court has never been to my house, and I've never been to hers. Ours is a wary relationship, one that befits a journalist of generally liberal leanings and a public official with a hard-right reputation fiercely targeted by the left.

I've been trying to get a fix on Brown since President Bush nominated her for the influential U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. She won't talk to the press. Friends, associates, even a former teacher, say the same things about her: She's "brilliant," "hardworking," "stoic" and "kind."

Her opponents on the left tell me she's a fundamentalist Christian who will bring her religious values into the courtroom. But I've never been frightened by…

We need more honorable teachers (to leave public schools)

I wonder how many great teachers we have left? Or for that matter good parents?

by Trevor Bothwell

We need more honorable teachers (to leave public schools)
It's getting difficult to keep track of the absurdities taking place in American public schools these days. Check out this story of Mitch Dorson, a respected American studies teacher in Arizona who resigned over his school's refusal to acknowledge student cheating (which, at the time of this writing, is supposedly still looked down upon by the school).

"I'm leaving because the environment here is unhealthy," Dorson said.

It all started last year, when the now 56-year-old teacher allowed a student to take an exam a day earlier than his other students. The student then sent an e-mail message to about 50 students, with the answers to the exam, Dorson said.

No explanation or apology was ever received, he said.

The only thing we can really do is what Mr. Dorson did. Good teachers need to start resigning …

Muslims Riot Over Spelling Of 'Koran' In U.S. Media

And you thought your book was holy...

by Scrappleface

As many as 25 people died and dozens more were injured during riots in Afghanistan today which erupted over what one Muslim cleric called "the U.S. media's desecration-by-mispelling" of the name of Islam's most holy book.

Indeed, American editors have failed to reach consensus on how to render the holy book's name. Some spell it with a 'K' others with a 'Q' and -- perhaps most offensive to Muslim sensibilities -- some insert a meaningless apostrophe in the middle of the word.

"They're mocking our religion and our God by using a wide variety of spellings for the holy book," said the unnamed imam. "Journalists and editors are the stormtroopers of America's war on Islam. They're trying to humiliate and intimidate us with alternate and phonetic spellings, sowing seeds of doubt about the book Allah gave to the Prophet. We will fill the streets with the blood of the infidels an…

Broken region of Darfur facing 'inevitable' famine

by By Rick Hampson, USA TODAY

Once, this was the season when Khartoma Ibrahim prayed for the rains to come. She was a farmer then, before the troubles here in Darfur changed everything, even her prayers.

The rains should come any day now, but this year Ibrahim, 35, has no fields to plant. She, her husband and their six children languish in a refugee camp whose 20,000 residents survive almost entirely on international food aid - aid that will be difficult to deliver once the seasonal rains turn West Darfur's dirt roads into quagmires.(The Full Story)

Reid, Dems Seek to Reinvent Reality

Check out the latest on the tantrum known as the Judicial Filibuster. If we're going to be pricks about it, the Constitution doesn't have a provision for a filibuster, Ole Dirty McGuirk.

Senate leaders are consensus-builders, horse traders, specialists in pulling out deals that no one thinks can be done.

So why has Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., dug in his heels on winning the confirmation of
President Bush's most controversial judicial nominees?

Frist has served as the standard-bearer for the White House and the Republican Party's religious conservatives in the fight to put like-minded jurists on the federal bench. He has rejected Democratic offers to confirm some of the blocked nominees, contending that all deserve a vote while moving forward on the nomination of Texas Supreme Court Justice Priscilla Owen, a step toward a Senate showdown.(The Full Story)

Koran Desecretion Hoax -- The Islamic World's Response

Let's take a look at the Islamic World's response to being outed by the false Newsweek story...

Aaron Klein of World Net Daily reports, Palestinian Muslims desecrated Joseph's tomb in Israel in response to Newsweek hoax. No apologies yet.

Dennis Prager essay "Newsweek and the rioters: 2 faces of anti-Americanism", explains how Muslims can't put the genie (their hatred) back in the bottle. They have disgraced themselves and we won't forget.

Update: Flames of hate, This is London

Muslim protesters today called for the bombing of New York in a demonstration outside the US embassy in London. There were threats of "another 9/11" from militants angry at reports of the desecration of the Koran by US troops in Iraq.

They haven't heard that the Koran report was a hoax.

One radical leader, Qazi Hussain Ahmed, claimed that "certain other credible eyewitness sources" such as former Guantanamo detainees had "also confirmed the shameful sacrilege."(The Full Story)

Newsweek magazine on Sunday said it erred in a May 9 report that said U.S. interrogators desecrated the Koran at Guantanamo Bay, and apologized to the victims of deadly Muslim protests sparked by the article.

The Liberalized MSM is a Terrorist's Best Friend.

The Warrior Class Blog once again delivers the goods.

In it's latest post, WCB explains that the liberalized MSM has become unwitting dupes of a criminal enterprise that has spun out of control. Funded by Iran, Syria and other Terrorist organizations who don't want a democracy in the region, the terrorists are creating media fodder. If you ask me, the liberalized MSM is starting to look like a terrorist organization.

The New York Times is mystified because the “insurgency” in Iraq doesn’t seem interested in winning hearts and minds. Dafydd ab Hugh at Powerline explains part of the confusion is that the NYT confuses a death cult with a real political insurgency. However, both miss the real strategy. The point of the bombings isn’t just to kill people. It is to make news. Terror is nothing more than criminal behavior amplified by the news media in order to blackmail society. It financial roots are based in the advertising that it gets from media play, not controlling the producti…

Justice Dept. Enters Court Nominee Fight

Dirty Harry should be expelled from the Senate for his improper comments about Judge Saad. Since Liberals lack the ability to police their leadership, the Justice Department appropriately steps in to monitor the Senator's recent ethical lapses.

The official, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the letter did not refer specifically to Reid, or to 6th Circuit Court nominee Henry Saad…

Reid cites FBI file on judicial pick

Dirty Harry has violated the rules of the Senate by mentioning the confidential files on Judge Saad. He must be expelled and brought up on charges of contempt. It's time for us to demand that Liberals play by the same rules as the rest of Americans.

By Charles Hurt, The Washington Times

Minority Leader Harry Reid strayed from his prepared remarks on the Senate floor yesterday and promised to continue opposing one of President Bush's judicial nominees based on "a problem" he said is in the nominee's "confidential report from the FBI."

Those highly confidential reports are filed on all judicial nominees, and severe sanctions apply to anyone who discloses their contents. Less clear is whether a senator could face sanctions for characterizing the content of such files.

IRAQ: Terrorists in the Hood

May 13, 2005

With the cancer of Wahabism entrenched in the Islamic World, it is clear that the Bush strategy of corralling the Islamic Jihadists in one place and killing them is brilliant. It's just despicable that the MSM's policy, "if it bleeds, it leads", allies them with the terrorists and our enemies.

From the Strategy Page:

Sunni Arab terrorists have stepped up their violence, with over 400 civilians killed so far this month. American casualties are up as well, with about two coalition troops dying each day, versus one a day two months ago. But more and more of the killers are foreigners. Syrians, Egyptians, Yemenis and Saudis are among those being captured, or identified after their are dead. Raids on terrorist safe-houses usually yield documents and computer records that list the large number of foreigners involved in the terrorism. Over the last two decades, Saudi Arabian charities have established tens of thousands of religious schools that preach Islamic radi…

How not to be poor

The Civil Rights struggle is over, and it has been won!

May 11, 2005

Ministers Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Washington, D.C.'s Mayor Anthony Williams and others recently met to discuss plans to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the October 1995 Million Man March. Whilst reading about the plans, I thought of an excellent topic for the event: how not to be poor.

Avoiding long-term poverty is not rocket science. First, graduate from high school. Second, get married before you have children, and stay married. Third, work at any kind of job, even one that starts out paying the minimum wage. And, finally, avoid engaging in criminal behavior. If you graduate from high school today with a B or C average, in most places in our country there's a low-cost or financially assisted post-high-school education program available to increase your skills.

Most jobs start with wages higher than the minimum wage, which is currently $5.15. A man …

Keep relying on the Liberalized MSM and by the time you're ready to retire, the Social Security system will be bankrupt.

By Herman Cain, Nation Review Online

According to a recent Washington Post/ABC poll, President Bush's plan to restructure the Social Security system has lost public support. What the poll doesn't tell you is that the network news has focused so much on the liberal side of this debate that the result isn't a surprise. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The Post story stated, "58 percent of those polled this time said the more they hear about Bush's plan, the less they like it." And what are they hearing about Bush's plan? That it's a bad idea, of course. The networks have been beating up the idea of restructuring Social Security for months.

The 'Today' show trashes Cosby

May 12, 2005

The Today Show reveals its racism by not taking this crisis of the black community seriously.

By Larry Elder, World Net Daily

When the Reverend Sharpton ran for president, he accused the media of racism for ignoring his candidacy. Since the word racist gets recklessly thrown around, does it also apply to the "Today" show?

Remember when the legendary actor-entertainer-philanthropist Bill Cosby said: [I]n our cities and public schools we have 50 percent drop out ... No longer is a person embarrassed because they're pregnant without a husband. No longer is a boy considered an embarrassment if he tries to run away from being the father of the unmarried child.

He urged blacks to embrace education, speak standard English and obey the law. How dare he? His comments created such a stir that last year, the "Today" show's Matt Lauer did a pro-and-con segment.

Now here's where things get interesting. Michael Eric Dyson, a professor at University of Pennsylv…

Harry Reid -- Another Lowdown Liberal!

Read the latest from those Liberal geniuses at work. Enter Dirty Harry...

In the course of a discussion on filibusters and Senate rules, Washington's top Democrat gave the 60 juniors a lesson in partisan politics, particularly about the commander in chief. "The man's father is a wonderful human being," Reid said in response to a question about President Bush's policies. "I think this guy is a loser.

"I think President Bush is doing a bad job," he added to a handful of chuckles.

"He's driving this country into bankruptcy," Reid said, referring to the deficit. "He's got us in this intractable war in Iraq where we now have about 1,600 American soldiers dead and another 15,000 injured."

After the statement was released, Reid phoned the Review-Journal to acknowledge he thought he crossed the line.

Larry 'Doc' Neace -- The Sleeper's Gambit.

Ever wonder why Georgia's ranked last is education? Read this AJC report! It foretells the sad state of education in Georgia. Now parents and boards decide what grade you get in class, not your total performance.

The Gwinnett County School Board voted early Friday to fire a Dacula High School science teacher who refused to raise the grade he gave a student athlete who appeared to be sleeping in class.

Neace, who has taught at Dacula High for 23 years, was removed from class after he refused to raise the grade he had given a football player on an overnight assignment. Neace said he cut the student's perfect grade in half because he thought the student had fallen asleep at his desk the day the assignment was made.
