Still they drone on and on

about visualizing world peace and Obama. Spotted in Ithaca on my way home from the Occupy Ithaca rally:
 

List of terrorists to be released is sickening

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2011
In many ways, it’s worse than I originally thought, now that the names officially have been released. In addition to the planners of the Sbarro Pizza bombing, about which I blogged earlier, the releasees include the planners of many other high profile bombings, terrorist attacks which live in the consiousness of every…

Saturday Night Card Game (Calling on Think Progress to play the ‘guilt by association card’ on Occupy Wall Street)

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2011
This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain: Dear Think Progress: For the past several years you have been playing the race and extremist cards on people who oppose Obama’s policies, most particularly against the Tea Party movement and Fox News.  Your misleading video about…

What is right about this Occupy Ithaca picture?

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2011
I attended the Occupy Ithaca rally today, which was scheduled as a mass peaceful demonstration starting at noon outside a Bank of America branch in downtown Ithaca As of 12:30 p.m., when I dropped by, there were about a dozen people holding signs.  I kind of felt sorry for them. None of the…

How long before Dems call OWS a Rovian plot?

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2011
So far, Democrats are going all in on the Occupy Wall Street movement, with the DNC even cirulating a petition in support.  Obama is trying to harness the energy for his campaign. That will change if plans for an OWS national convention take place next summer, signifying that OWS is a third force. As outlined…

#OccupyMediaHype

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2011
Quote of the day, from a mostly sympathetic Walter Shapiro writing in The New Republic (h/t @SissyWillis): How do I convey this respectfully as a veteran of the 1960s? This is not the 1967 Pentagon March or anything like it. Nothing I saw in New York this week justifies the current level of…

Gimme just one more reason

Posted by  ▪  October 15, 2011
The bumper sticker below lists three reasons to vote for Obama.  He’ll have to do better than that if he wants my vote.  Throw in “destroy the economy” and I’m there. Spotted by reader Leslie, who writes: Spotted in Jacksonville, FL at a union packing plant
 

Open

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2011
Should I go to the Occupy Ithaca protest tomorrow?  And tell them that they already occupy Ithaca so they can’t occupy themselves? How are the Occupy protests any different than what we see every time there is a G20 meeting? Not good when a candidate’s wife becomes an issue, and when the candidate…

Occupy … Cornell?

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2011
Today a bunch of college Dems have created an “Occupy Cornell” event. I don’t know what the objective of this is, but it looks like a pretty pathetic state of affairs in “solidarity.” Here’s the transcript of the “occupation” if your eyes are in need of a good roll. Here’s my favorite…

“What happens after the next soldier is kidnapped?”

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2011
That’s the question asked at the end of a long Jerusalem Post report on the negotiations leading to the swap of over 1000 Palestinian prisoners, many of whom were responsible for the most heinous terrorist attacks which killed hundreds of Israelis, for captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. It’s not for me to…

Politico’s BHO Moment

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2011
The homepage of Politico this morning resembled the now-infamous Esquire ode de love to Barack Obama. Obama as heir to the Martin Luther King, Jr. legacy, marching arm-in-arm with those who walked arm-in-arm with Dr. King: Except that the story was not quite at the cover indicated, focusing not on Obama’s unity with…

Let me guess, UN will charge Israel with animal cruelty

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2011
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to post a good Stuxnet story.  Stuxnet, you will recall, is the malicious malware which has plagued the Iranian nuclear program and which is blamed – without proof — on Israel. The PJ Tatler notes that an Iranian attempt this week to launch a monkey into…

Join the Big Government OWS crowdsourcing project

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2011
Big Government is launching a crowdsourcing project for a cache of documents obtained regarding the organization and implementation of the Occupy Wall Street movement (via Ace, who is participating): In keeping with the new media notion of crowdsourcing–enthusiastically embraced by the mainstream media when trawling through Sarah Palin’s emails–Big Government will be providing…

RI Gov. Linc Chafee gets to protect murderer from feds

Posted by  ▪  October 14, 2011
Back in June I posted about how RI Gov. Linc Chafee was refusing to turn Jason Wayne Pleau over to the feds because Pleau potentially was subject to the death penalty in connection with a murder committed on the steps of a federal bank.  The feds never indicated whether or not they would actually…

Via Media Bistro: FNC’s Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry got the first question at today’s joint news conference between Pres. Obama and Lee Myung-Bak, President of South Korea. Henry asked the president about the alleged Iranian terror plot, and used a quote from GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney who had criticized…
