18,000 virgins needed — stat!

What happens when the Jihadi’s try to take us head on?

Losing, my ass.

U.S., Iraqi forces kill 250 militants in Najaf

NAJAF, Iraq (Reuters) – U.S. and Iraqi forces killed 250 gunmen in a fierce battle involving U.S. tanks and helicopters on the outskirts of the Shi’ite holy city of Najaf on Sunday, a senior Iraqi police officer said.


The day-long battle was continuing after nightfall, Colonel Ali Nomas told Reuters, as tens of thousands of pilgrims converged on the nearby city of Kerbala for the climax of the Ashura commemorations.


A U.S. helicopter was shot down in the fighting, Iraq security sources said.

When the ROE let us go after the insurgents, jihadis and Mahdi folks, it is no contest.

If the hate America first politicians on the left would stop trying to force us into defeat, stories like this would be a daily occurance and a peaceful Iraq would be in our near future. Instead, our enemies are emboldened by the defeatist attitudes of the democrats and keep pouring cannon fodder into Iraq.

Thanks to Hot Air commentor Limerick for the idea for the post title.

Go sign the pledge! Now!

Posted by mesablue on January 28, 2007

The NRSC Pledge:

If the United States Senate passes a resolution, non-binding or otherwise, that criticizes the commitment of additional troops to Iraq that General Petraeus has asked for and that the president has pledged, and if the Senate does so after the testimony of General Petraeus on January 23 that such a resolution will be an encouragement to the enemy, I will not contribute to any Republican senator who voted for the resolution. Further, if any Republican senator who votes for such a resolution is a candidate for re-election in 2008, I will not contribute to the National Republican Senatorial Committee unless the Chairman of that Committee, Senator Ensign, commits in writing that none of the funds of the NRSC will go to support the re-election of any senator supporting the non-binding resolution.

Over 28,000 people have signed The Pledge thus far. Will you?

Get on over there, if enough people sign this thing at least a few senators will take notice.

John Kerry, the not so accidental traitor

Posted by mesablue on January 28, 2007

John Heinz Kerry made a trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland this past week.

Here he is hanging with his buddy, former president of Iran Mohammad Khatami–

Never one to keep his mouth shut to avoid spewing verbal garbage, Kerry called the U.S. an “international pariah.”

From Hot Air with video

Kerry said the Bush administration has failed in addressing a number of foreign policy issues.


“When we walk away from global warming, Kyoto, when we are irresponsibly slow in moving toward AIDS in Africa, when we don’t advance and live up to our own rhetoric and standards, we set a terrible message of duplicity and hypocrisy,” Kerry said.


“So we have a crisis of confidence in the Middle East — in the world, really. I’ve never seen our country as isolated, as much as a sort of international pariah for a number of reasons as it is today.”…

Kerry’s memory is as selective as his choice in billionaire widowers, the Kyoto accord was first rejected under Clinton.

Economists from the Clinton White House now concede that complying with Kyoto’s mandatory reductions in greenhouse gases would be difficult — and more expensive to American consumers than they thought when they were in charge.


That reassessment helped fuel Bush’s decision to reject the Kyoto treaty, said Lawrence Lindsey, the president’s economic adviser. Instead of embracing binding limits on greenhouse gases, Bush pledged on Monday a modest package of actions to combat global warming. They include a research initiative to fill gaps in scientists’ understanding of climate change and increased use of renewable energy. But he didn’t call for new money.

As for the Africa claim:

No other country has spent more money at any other time on AIDS research and support to Africa than during the Bush administration — not even close. The Clinton administration did almost nothing. That would have taken the impossible task for Clinton of taking a stance on something.

AIDS IN AFRICA: Mission Control – Pres. Bush’s plan to triple US spending on fighting AIDS in Africa

National Review, Feb 24, 2003


President Bush’s new $15 billion AIDS-fighting initiative for Africa will triple U.S. spending on the crisis. It is a “work of mercy,” says Bush-a mission-one undertaken by a “blessed country” that recognizes its moral responsibility to help the wretched of the earth.

Bush TRIPLED U.S. spending to Africa — moron.

John Kerry was almost elected President of the United States. If you voted for this “America last” coward, I hope you are taking a closer look at your reasons.

A few months ago, Kerry said he botched a joke when he denigrated our troops by calling them stupid and uneducated — John Kerry is the botched joke.

John Kerry is not running for president

Posted by mesablue on January 24, 2007

No more Waffles.

To the chagrin of our troops worldwide, John Kerry has decided not to run for president again.

Kerry bows out of ’08 presidential race

WASHINGTON – Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, the Democrats’ losing presidential candidate in 2004, does not intend to run again in 2008, a Democratic official said Wednesday.


This official said Kerry intends to seek a new six-year term in the Senate.

This sucks on so many levels.

It can be best described in pictures.

Tom points out that I forgot Kerry in his goose killer garb. “I shot a goose, before I decided not to shoot it”, and “Do I get another Purple Heart for this?”

And lest we forget. John Kerry as he testifies before the U.S. Senate calling our soldiers rapists and murderers. All charges that were completely unfounded and based on reports of so called soldiers who were later found to never have served.

Kerry testified before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on April 22, 1971, telling the Senators and a national audience that American troops “…had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Ghengis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam…” and accused the U.S. military of committing war crimes “on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command.”

Asshole.

It would have been so much fun to watch you go down in flames.

Again.

Beirut is burning….again

Posted by mesablue on January 24, 2007

Hezbollah is rioting in Beirut. Over the last several weeks, Hezbollah had been camped out on the city center hoping to disrupt and take over the democratically elected government. Not content with the damage they caused to Lebanon when they attacked Israel and started a war, they have now thrown the country into near civil war.

Michael Totten just returned from Lebanon and has coverage.

Hezbollah Riots in Lebanon (Continuously Updated)

While I was in Lebanon gathering the material I’ve been publishing, Hezbollah kept threatening to strangle the country by seizing major roads, including the one that leads to the airport. I was worried I might get stuck there, but I didn’t. Today, though, they finally make good on their threat. Palestinian guerillas are reportedly helping.


Future TV and LBC say there are clashes between rioters and commuters. Cars, as well as tires, are burning.


Violence is spreading. Three people have been shot. Sunni and Shia Muslims fought each other with sticks, rocks, and automatic weapons in Southern Beirut. Violent clashes, often involving gunfire, are erupting elsewhere in the country as well.


Notice, also, that the violent clashes in the streets are mostly between Sunnis and Shia, not between Christians and Shia. This is, and was, entirely predictable. Those who think Hezbollah is a popular movement with the support of Lebanon’s Muslims as a whole should think again.

Take a close look at the methods of extremist Islam.

Will the world finally stand up and condemn Hezbollah as the terrorist organization that it is? I doubt it.

These are the same animals that blew up the US Marine barracks. Yet today, the MSM and lefties continously sugarcoat and spin the stories coming out of Lebanon. Reuters was caught sending photoshopped and staged pictures out to the major news outlets of the world.

Enough already.

Cat poo-tea

Posted by mesablue on January 19, 2007

If you spend any time at Ace of Spades HQ, you’ll learn about a little fixation a few of the more twisted folks have with cat scat.

I was surprised to find an article in the Chicago Tribune by columnist John Kass about a particular delicacy.

Coffee that’s good to the last dropping

In the post-apocalyptic nightmare to come, I hope somebody saves a copy of this column, to put the blame for the fall of the West right where it belongs: on America’s gourmet coffee fetish, which has led to $10 cups of coffee made from cat poop.


“It doesn’t taste like what you think it tastes like,” Brian Munro, manager and apprentice roast master at Coffee and Tea Unlimited in Minneapolis, said on Wednesday. “And it doesn’t smell. You smell the roasted beans. It’s a very rich cup of coffee. Using a coffee term, it’s got a full body.”


Yes, indeed, Mr. Brew Master.


“It’s roast master, not brew master,” he corrected. “I’m apprentice to the roast master.”


They are not cats, exactly, they’re civets, which is worse. A civet is a 10-pound cat with soft, pudgy hands. They creep through Indonesian and Ethiopian coffee fields at night, eating the fruit, swallowing the beans, as hapless peasants trudge behind them, gingerly collecting the undigested beans, perhaps singing a folk song or two about stupid North Americans, and ship them here, where it sells for $420 a pound.

Holy crap.

100 hours of hypocrisy

Posted by mesablue on January 16, 2007

Nancy (Big Tuna) Pelosi promised that her congress would set their agenda in it’s first 100 hours.

She also promised a leadership free from corruption, we instantly saw an impeached judge and a yet to be indicted creep who stashed $90,000.00 in federal bribe money in his fridge up for committee chairmanships.

One of the points in Big Tuna’s 100 hours agenda was to raise the minimum wage. Well, they pushed it through — except for one thing:

Pelosi slipped a loophole into the legislation that would exempt American Samoa. Every state and territory in the United States would have to increase their minimum wage except for American Samoa.

Now, why would she do that?

Could it be because Del Monte which owns StarKist Tuna and employs more 5,000 Samoans, almost 75 percent of the island’s work force, is in Pelosi’s district?

PELOSI BILL BLASTED AS PORK FOR TUNA

January 13, 2007 — WASHINGTON – Red-faced House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went into damage-control mode yesterday after Republicans charged she slipped a loophole into the Democrats’ just-passed minimum-wage bill to benefit a company in her San Francisco district.


The legislation hiking the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour covered the entire United States and all its territories – except for one: American Samoa.


The GOP said Samoa was exempted because Democrat Pelosi is protecting the food giant Del Monte Corp., which is based in her district. Del Monte owns StarKist Tuna, which employs more 5,000 Samoans, almost 75 percent of the island’s work force.


The company had opposed the legislation, which passed Wednesday. The legislation increases the minimum wage from $5.15 an hour.

This is what you voted for America.

The first time your new Speaker exercises the power of her position, it is in a highly unethical manner. I’m not suprised at all. Pelosi is probably surprised and apalled that she is being called on this.

How are you going to feel when they go after the tax cuts that are driving the economy?

Here’s a hilarious video of House Republicans asking if they can exempt American Samoa from the bill for federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. Barney Frank throws a complete hissy fit. Sometimes being the minority can be fun. The Dem’s are saying that Frank kicked the Republicans around. Yeah, sure.

You be the judge:

Ice, ice baby

Posted by mesablue on January 16, 2007

Well, this is so much fun.

We had a little ice storm in the Detroit area Monday morning.

Cold, snow and ice blast Metro Detroit

On Monday, snow and ice whipped through the state knocking out power to at least 200,000, pushing trees onto streets and killing three people.


Crews from the Midwest have been called in to help DTE Energy restore power to the customers who lost service.

Someone started banging on my door Monday morning at about 7:00 a.m., so I rushed out of bed and ran to the door. They were beating the heck out of it — I knew something had to be going on. There were three fireman standing there and I thought, “well, this can’t be good” thinking that something was on fire. It turns out that the powerline that runs through my back yard came down and took out power for the entire neighborhood. It was a live line and once in a while it threw off some cool sparks.

So, now I know why it’s freezing — the line must have come down several hours earlier. The fire crew stayed all day and all night to make sure no one went near the line. It’s 4:30 in the afternoon on Tuesday and they are still there, waiting for a DTE crew to come out and repair the line. They’ve put up yellow accident tape everywhere between all the houses on the street, it looks like something REALLY bad happened in our neighborhood. I’ve taken up residence in a local coffee house to stay warm and have Internet access. It’s not too bad, but I’m getting pretty wired on all the coffee I keep buying so I don’t feel like a freeloader. To top it all off, I’ve got a cold so I don’t feel like going to the gym or wasting time drinking the night away in a bar– bummer. If they don’t get it fixed by tonight, I may just go get drunk anyway. Makes it easier to sleep when it’s cold as hell.

Outside temp right now is 18 degrees, going down to 13 tonight. Brrrrr. Good thing I used to camp out in the cold and have some great cold weather gear. As long as the toilet doesn’t freeze, I’m good. The funny thing is, the hot water heater still works (all of the other appliances are electric), so I get hot water and dump it down the toilet once in a while to warm it up. Heh.

So, probably not much blogging from me until they get it fixed. Nice how I haven’t heard a thing from DTE while I’m stuck in a frozen house. Trying to get through on the phone is a joke.

Think I’ll go see how the firemen are doing — this has got to be pretty boring for them.

Out.

Update: The power company showed up at about 6:00 p.m. and restored electricity. Nice and warm now. The house was frozen, it was 35 degrees in the house when the furnace kicked back on.

Stupid terrorist tricks

Posted by mesablue on January 14, 2007

What happens when ten jihadis get together for the day to plan an ambush on our troops and bring along their video camera?

“Oops! Somebody forget to turn off the video camera, because he was fucking dead.”

Click on the link above for video. Warning, towards the end there are some very graphic images.

These scumbags like to record their crimes so they can send recordings of beheading Catholic schoolgirls or blowing up crowds of civilians to each other as some kind of islamo-porn.

Whenever they try to take our armed forces head on, they tend to get their asses blown off.

This was one of those days.

Game Day! This is for all the marbles, baby!

Posted by mesablue on January 14, 2007

Win or go home… Chicago Bears, home field advantage all the way. This is what we live for.

Go Bears!

The last time we faced Seattle it was a romp. If “good” Rex shows up we should be able to do it again. We are a little banged up on D, but it’s no excuses time. Bear Down!

Put on your Bears gear Wickedpinto — Mooooooooooooose!!!

Check out a great Chicago Bears site: Bears History.com

Gametime!

First drive for a TD! Bears up 7-0 and Bad Rex hasn’t shown up yet. It could be a good day.

Ugh, an ugly drive by Seattle, 7-7. C’mon Bears, that was sloppy.

Wow, first play 70 yard strike for a TD! 14-7 Bears.

Bad Rex just put in an appearance. He fumbled on the ten to help Seattle get an easy score. 14-14.

There you go, nice efficient drive to end the half. They went for it on fourth down and got the TD to take back the seven points we just gave away. 21-14 Bears.

Not good, two scores by Seattle in the third. 24-21 Seattle.

Ugly, Mohammed lets one through his hands for an interception inside the ten yard line. The Bears just squandered a huge scoring opportunity.

Woah, the Bears intercept on the next play! Now we have to get seven.

Nothing.

Hester runs a punt back for a touchdown…penalty. Nothing.

Long drive by Bears results in a field goal to tie the game. 24-24. 4:24 left.

Bears stop Seattle and then give the ball right back at the end of the game.

Overtime.

Wow. Robbie Gould kicks a 49 yard field goal to win the game.

The Bears do just enough to overcome Rex’s mistakes.

Free speech for me, but not for thee

Posted by mesablue on January 13, 2007

A very typical action by “progressive” lefties. Liberals are always whining about having their “freedom of speech” violated when they try to force some insane idea upon us and we react by telling them to go back to Berkely.

The funny thing about liberals, they don’t care about your right to express your freedom if they don’t agree with what you are saying. We’ve seen it several times this past year. In one incident students at ultra-liberal Columbia University violently disrupted a speech on campus( follow the link for video and more), violating the rights of others while claiming that they were just exercising their right to free speech by punching someone they didn’t want to hear speak in the face. Kind of like how they like to express pacifism and protest against the war through vandalism and violence.

Now we have readers of the leftie haven The Huffington Post getting their panties twisted about the lone conservative contributor out of dozens, Greg Gutfeld, and want to have him removed. They don’t like him sullying up their echo-chamber with his conservative poison. So, rather than ignore him, they want him out.

They’ve gone so far as to start an online petition.

Check it out, you can read the comments without signing the petition yourself. It’s not turning out the way they had hoped. After a few leftie goofballs signed, it took on a different sort of life with the majority telling these losers to go cry in a corner somewhere. Priceless.

Somewhere there is a little leftie whino stamping his feet about how “unfair” it is that his petition to quash someone’s freedom of speech was over run by “neo-cons who are violating my right to freedom of expression while I’m trying to deny that right to Gutfeld”.

Bastards!

Thanks to Purple Avenger — How the left practices “free speech”.

Most annoying and cool song — ever

Posted by mesablue on January 12, 2007

Heart-ache: U.S. soldier cops to playing “Happy Flowers” during Iraq interrogations

The triggerman was within 50 meters of a house. We go to the house and of course the gentleman living there has seen nothing. We had questioned this guy before and not gotten any information so this time, we put him in the Humvee, tell him we are taking him with us and start playing “Mom, I Gave the Cat Some Acid” over and over.


After about an hour of Happy Flowers and being told that we don’t want to take him, and that if he would tell us what he knows we will take him back home, he finally tells us who the triggerman is, where we can find him, where other bombs are hidden and ID’s 3 corrupt policemen. All without having to threaten, imprison, or break any of our rules of conduct.

A Happy Flowers song: Cartoons.

A must listen.

I said! I want to watch cartoons! Heh.
