News (Apparently) Unfit to Print

Gay & Right has a remarkable story about how the terrorists in Gaza Strip are trying to deny freedom of speech to the jounalists whom are trying to erase corruption from the government and the AP who is allowed to stand there to take pictures for propaganda. How is this, you ask? Hmm. Good question.

There was also another trial that did not receive much press. It is the trial in Jordan of the 13 people who plotted to spread a deadly chemical weapon on Jordan. (But there are no weapons, right? Think again!)
The government says if the attack had been carried out, it would have sent a cloud of toxic chemicals across Amman, killing thousands. [read the whole story]
They were threatening to bring down the monarchy. Only 9 are in custody, while the other 3 are being tried in absentia.

I have three very good articles from Counter Terrorism. The first one, written by Evan Kohlmann, covers the twisting of the facts by the Washington Post. Not only this, this journalist goes after Vice President Dick Cheney without any basis.

The second story, written by Victor Comras, covers the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba as it continues to interfere in the rescue and aid missions in Kashmir. This is an arm of al Qaeda. Thirdly, written by Olivier Guitta, let us give credit where credit is due. Morocco is fighting al Qaeda! All three stories are excellent reads, and they provide much needed information.

Now for a little humor.
In order to be a Liberal...
1. You have to be against capital punishment, but support abortion on demand.
2. You have to believe that corporations create oppression and governments create prosperity. (This one is really important)
3. You have to believe that guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens are more of a threat than nuclear weapons technology in the hands of Chinese and North Korean communists or Islamic fundamentalists.
4. You have to believe that there was no art before government funding.
5. You have to believe that global temperatures are less affected by cyclical documented changes in the earth's climate and more affected by soccer moms driving SUV's. [read the rest here]
Okay, this is taking it too far!
"But did you know that the majority of nativity scene sets, and yes, even especially the ones with popular names with Italian design, are now being made in China?" (Classic Nativity Scenes).
These last two are from our Military. One is from an American Marine. The other is from Big Dog. They both have to do with Christmas.
