CBS News has learned that Iran is continuing to make progress on its expanded efforts to enrich uranium — in spite of covert efforts by U.S. and other allied intelligence agencies to actively sabotage the country's nuclear program.
Sources in several countries involved told CBS News that the intelligence operatives involved include former Russian nuclear scientists and Iranians living abroad. Operatives have sold Iran components with flaws that are difficult to detect, making them unstable or unusable.
So CBS has revealed that some of the Russian nuclear scientists selling materials to the Iranians are saboteurs on the US payroll, and rather than selling defective materials, CBS is telling the world that they're purposefully selling sabotaged stuff. Uh, dangerous maybe? How many former Russian nuclear scientists are working for the Iranians? And doesn't this put some additional pressure on our moles? Seems like it.
Is this part of a misinformation campaign? I hope so. Most of us have assumed all along that the US wasn't sitting idly by as the Iranians developed their nuclear technology, but then again, I think even fewer of us assumed a major American news outlet would out American plans to secretly undermine the Iranian regime. I guess reports like this are fair warning to the Left, not that it's going to change the hearts and minds of those who believe the US is itching for a reason to invade Iran; they're a lost cause anyway. The question is, why would CBS reveal this now, or at all?
Yep -- I plan to keep on voting for Republicans & Democrats ... you know -- cuz I'm retarded.
"Hey -- you're biting my butt."
Muffled with a mouthfull of butt - "No I'm not."
SF Chronicle Managing Editor Resigns, Paper Bracing for Deep Cuts
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The San Francisco Chronicle's managing editor is stepping down as the Hearst Corp.-owned newspaper braces for a round of deep editorial job cuts.
Robert Rosenthal, who joined the Chronicle five years ago, said in a note to staff Tuesday that he is leaving the paper "without rancor or acrimony." He does not have another job lined up, but wants to "help another organization grow and another group of talented people find success."
"I really want to be in a situation where I can build something rather than take it apart," Rosenthal said. "It might be a newspaper or it might be a new kind of news organization. I think it's time where the skills we have as journalists can be applied in a different way. The business model for newspapers is clearly broken."

Oh Really? I wonder what could be wrong, DUMBASS. Let's see --- for decades we've denigrated America and crammed left-wing crapaganda up the asses of Bay Area residinks. Worked great with the drugged-out hippies -- and worked great on their minds-of-mush kids -- still works great with the current crop of brainwashed myrmidons at Berkeley -- unfortunately, it's over.
The funniest parts?
1 - You still claim to be "objective."
2 - You still wonder why you're going broke.
Join the New York Times and most major American papers in doom, assholes. Maybe with your rags, "one square" WOULD be enough.

A Palestinian militant points his rifle towards Israeli troops as other gunmen and civilians look on during an Israeli army raid in the village of Qabatiya, near the West Bank town of Jenin, Thursday, Sept. 7, 2006. Three Palestinians, including a wanted militant, were killed Thursday when Israeli troops raided the West Bank town, Palestinian hospital officials said. Two unarmed Palestinians were killed in the exchange of fire, and 11 others were injured, the officials said. The Israeli army confirmed that troops were making arrests in Qabatiya and that a shootout had erupted. (AP Photo/Mohammed Ballas)
I mean -- what the hell is going on here? What's the next headline? ... "Unarmed palestinians shot for no reason?" What are you thinking when you're standing in a crowd behind some moron firing off an automatic weapon?
He was talking about the immigration issue.
PRESIDENT BUSH: I was touched yesterday when the kid from the Coast Guard Academy, ensign -- now ensign talked about his migrant grandfather from Mexico. And here's this guy, this man standing up in front of the President of the United States and his class, talking about serving America. He wasn't -- you know, his grandfather wasn't born here.
Uh -- Isn't "ensign" a rank in the coast guard ... you know ... like "captain?"
Reading this, it appears he thought it was the guy's name. "Mr Presidink, this here is Ensign Gonzales." Maybe the guy's name WAS "Ensign." -- in that case, he's Ensign Ensign Gonzales. I wonder why the press didn't make fun of this "Big-a'meat-a-ball over the plate."
Tossing of covers:
As with all military academies, at the moment the cadets are confirmed as Ensigns, they toss their hats high into the air in celebration. If the timing is just right, there will be a Coast Guard aircraft flying over at the same time.
It is tradition that the newly appointed Ensign choose the two people most important to him/her to place the ensign shoulder boards on their uniform for the first time.
Upon commissioning, it is tradition for a new Ensign to recognize the person giving him/her their first salute with the gift of a silver dollar. Each cadet must come prepared; often the silver dollar is from a year that is meaningful to the cadet.
The Klown salutes the Coast Guard and all our military peeps and vets.

Police arrest 2 teens at parade
Allegedly threw eggs at marchers
By Michael Levenson, Globe Staff May 29, 2007
Standing ramrod straight in dress blues and crisp khakis, the seven color guard members lifted their rifles for one of the most solemn moments of any Memorial Day parade, the 21-gun salute. Hundreds who had gathered to witness the tribute watched in silence.
Just then, the eggs came flying. One glanced off a tree branch, and landed far away from the marchers in yesterday's Memorial Day Parade in Rockland, said Ryan Durfee , a former Marine who was marching in the color guard. Another crashed 8 feet in front of the color guard.
"Too close for comfort," Durfee said last night.
After the throwing , Durfee said he saw two teens run from their backyard into their house, and two police officers chase after them.
It's just that I believe we all should live as if we were in a commune ... and share everything ... and twirl in our sun-dances ... with flowers in our hair.

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it's time to replace an "on your own" society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity.
I wonder if she's gonna share her prosperity with me? ... or if she just wants me to feel good about sharing mine with 24 million illegal (criminal) aliens.

Venezuela's government has accused a TV station of inciting a murder attempt on President Hugo Chavez, hours after taking another network off the air.
The government was also suing the US station CNN for allegedly linking Mr Chavez to al-Qaeda, Mr Lara said.
"CNN broadcast a lie which linked President Chavez to violence and murder," he said.
In a statement, CNN said they "strongly deny" being "engaged in a campaign to discredit or attack Venezuela".

The pageant turned painful for Miss USA Rachel Smith, who suffered a rough trek in the evening gown phase. The high-heels proved hellish as she fell to the stage. She made a quick recovery and the judges showed lenience. The audience seemed less forgiving. During the question and answer segment, the crowd in Mexico City taunted the contestant with loud boos and whistles. Smith stuck to game plan and finished as fourth runner-up.
Her trip comes ahead of next week's Group of Eight summit and a climate change meeting next month involving the leading industrialized nations and during a time of increased debate over what should succeed the Kyoto Protocol, a 1997 international treaty that caps the amount of carbon dioxide that can be emitted from power plants and factories in industrialized countries. It expires in 2012.
President Bush rejected that accord, saying it would harm the U.S. economy and unfair excludes developing countries like China and India from its obligations. Pelosi, who strongly disagrees with that decision and many other of Bush's environmental policies, said Friday she said she wants to work with the administration rather than provoke it.
Pelosi said she hoped Bush would be open to considering a "different way" in the future.

Campaigners are calling for more spending on stop-smoking ads before the July deadline
By Jonathan Owen
Published: 27 May 2007
With almost half of Britons unaware that it will be illegal to smoke in public places from 1 July, new figures reveal there has been a dramatic slump in the number of smokers kicking the habit.
Anti-smoking campaigners are now calling on the Government to capitalise on the ban by running stop-smoking adverts and increasing tobacco taxation.
The klown imagines interviews with "smokers on the street."
"Uh -- Duh -- yeah -- I'm banned -- but I expected it cuz I'm a shitstain"
"Uh -- Duh -- yeah -- I have to pay more taxes -- but I deserve it -- cuz I'm a shitstain"
"Uh -- Duh -- yeah -- Quitting makes sense -- with the ban on us shitstains coming soon"
"Uh -- Duh -- yeah -- it's about time us shitstains learned our lesson"
"Uh -- Duh -- yeah -- this isn't as bad as when they banned jacking off in the bathroom -- it was for my own good."
Smokers will make a last stand at a Forest "Revolt in Style" dinner at the Savoy Hotel in London a week before the ban. Guests will include David Hockney, who has condemned the ban as a "grotesque piece of social engineering... imposed easily by a political and media elite".

For the media -- A day upon which we observe the sacrifice of only those soldiers whose deaths can be used as political ammunition against conservatives/republicans.
Jules Crittendon wants to know why the AP is pushing a big new "grim" Iraq casualty figure to celebrate Memorial Day, but they and the entire MSM seem unconcerned by casualties in Afghanistan.
The AP story leads with the number of new graves opened for dead American soldiers since Memorial Day last, but only those killed in Iraq. Why this slight? Are the dead in Afghanistan not worthy of respect in the eyes of the Associated Press? It is possible that this article is not about honoring the dead at all, or even about reporting the news, but just another thinly veiled editorial attack on the Bush administration? Would the Associated Press be so callous as to use American dead in this manner, as a political tool?
HOUSTON (AP) - Advocates for the mentally ill are questioning Houston police officers' use of stun guns on suspects with mental problems, many of whom were unarmed and then never charged with a crime.
Since officers started carrying Tasers in December 2004, nearly 130 people known or suspected to be mentally ill were shocked by officers responding to calls, according to a Houston Chronicle review of more than 1,000 incidents involving the stun gun.
The department also had its first Taser-related death recently that involved a mentally ill man, the newspaper reported Sunday.
Often, police knew they were responding to calls involving people with mental health issues but rarely called officers who are specially trained to deal with the mentally ill, according to police records.
"Using a Taser is easy," said Arlene Kelly, who became an outspoken advocate for the mentally ill after her daughter was shot and killed by a Houston police officer in 1999. "There's no waiting. There's no need to be patient with someone who may not understand orders. The Taser has represented a step backward in how police deal with the mentally ill."
Some of those stunned had committed violent crimes, threatened others or harmed themselves. But most were people who failed to follow officers' orders in the fog of their mental confusion, records show.

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan troops have seized an anti-government television channel's broadcast equipment, the station said on Sunday, ahead of a controversial midnight EDT/0400 GMT takeover by President Hugo Chavez that will take the broadcaster off the air.
Chavez sparked international criticism with his decision to not renew RCTV's license and to replace Venezuela's most-watched channel with a state-backed network that will promote the values of his self-styled socialist revolution.
RCTV representatives said troops had taken over relay stations across the country amid a show of military force meant to deter possible violence by opposition demonstrators.
Since coming to power in 1999, Chavez has taken control of the judiciary, army and crucial oil industry as part of his leftist reform campaign.
But until the closure of RCTV, he had not moved aggressively against Venezuela's media, which his critics called a safeguard against him forging a Cuban-style system in the OPEC nation.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) - An Australian hotel catering for homosexuals has won the right to ban heterosexuals from its bars so as to provide a safe and comfortable venue for gay men.
In what is believed to be a first for Australia, the Victorian state civil and administrative tribunal ruled last week that the Peel Hotel in the southern city of Melbourne could exclude patrons based on their sexuality.
Australia's equal opportunity laws prevent people being discriminated against based on race, religion or sexuality.
But Peel Hotel owner Tom McFeely said the ruling was necessary to provide gay men with a non-threatening atmosphere to freely express their sexuality.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, get off my blog right now.
For the rest of you, here is a site where you can send a fax (for free) to your congressmen.
It does it automatically -- it knows who your congressmen are when you sign up and enter your zip code. (Takes one minute flat.) And it remembers your information so the next time you send a fax, it fills the form in automatically. What could be better for very busy, yet caring, peeps such as us.
They don't share your information with anyone.
So -- if you give a shit, click here, and send the fax -- TODAY -- but -- you're probably too busy wondering what is going to happen to Paris Hilton -- right? -- commie?
Actually -- THIS LINK might work better.
UPDATE: They sent me an e-mail -- updating the situation on the bill. At first I was pissed. I was going to find the "unsubscribe" link as fast as possible and then remove this post from the blog.
After I thought about it for a few mins, I changed my mind. I have decided to remain on their mailing list. This organization is actually doing some good and I want them to send me e-mail on subjects like this in the future. After all -- the site cookie remembers my information -- so the next time I go to fax my congressmen it will take all of 30 seconds.
I urge you to remain on their mailing list as well -- at least for a couple of months. Further, If you find yourself faxing your congressmen a lot, I urge to you to consider donating $5 or so to them now and again.
And -- I'll say it again -- I absolutely cannot believe they are trying to pass this bill. For what? What are they getting out of this? Making the LEGAL immigrants wait for years and pay through the nose for their right to be here -- and then slapping them in the face by allowing these ILLEGALS the same right. The congressmen know damn well the American people hate the bill and yet they're trying like hell to pass it ... they even conducted negotiations on the bill in private -- didn't allow it to go to committee (as is the normal process for a bill.) They didn't allow it in committee because then the negotiations would have become public. I could go on and on -- this bill is the wrong thing to do and yet they're going to try to ram it up your ass -- and something telle me they will succeed.

Jack in the Box Ads Called Misleading
Competitor Sues Jack in the Box Over TV Spots Mocking Burger Meat
The parent company of the Carl's Jr. and Hardee's fast food chains sued rival Jack In The Box Inc. on Friday to stop TV ads that it says suggest Carl's Jr. and Hardee's use cow anus to make Angus beef hamburgers.
CKE Restaurants Inc. sued Jack In The Box in U.S. District Court on Friday over an ad in which executives laugh hysterically at the word "Angus" and another where the chain's pingpong ball-headed mascot, Jack, is asked to point to a diagram of a cow and show where Angus meat comes from.
"I'd rather not," the pointy-nosed Jack replies.
The employee asking the question traces a circle in the air with his pen while pronouncing the word Angus.
CKE claims the ads create the misleading impression that Jack In The Box's new 100 percent sirloin burgers use a better quality of meat than the Angus beef used by Carl's Jr. and Hardee's. CKE claims the spots confuse consumers by comparing sirloin, a cut of meat found on all cattle, with Angus, which is a breed of cattle.

This past winter saw record snows in the Rocky Mountain region as well as an unusually cold spring in Alaska. Currently, we are seeing a Memorial Day snow advisory for the Colorado Mountains. Wyoming being buried in a May snowstorm and parts of Canada are still enduring winter. In addition, South Africa just set 54 new cold weather records with some parts seeing snow for the first time in 33 years as snow and ice continue to fall. And I am not finished. A massive snowstorm in China has closed highways and stranded motorists. And finally, winter has arrived early in Australia as the snow season is off to a promising start for the winter recreation industry.
But the most verifiable threat to the recreation and travel industry is the unintended consequences of misguided government policy and environmental activists. The chilling effect of guilt that the climate alarmists are attempting to instill in Americans for owning four wheel drive vehicles, flying in an airplane and enjoying travel is enough to harm the industry. For examples of this promotion of misguided policies and guilt, you need look no further than a proposal in April by the UK-based Institute for Public Policy Research, which called for tobacco-style health warnings on airplanes to warn passengers that the plane flight may be contributing to a global warming crisis. The group proposed posting signs on airplanes which read “flying causes climate change.”
Whaaaaa? --- This must be true ... since it was proposed by one of those groups with a fancy-schmancy name ... which are known by all to be only for the good of the public ... non-biased groups ... based on science only .. with no agenda whatsoever.

Former US vice president Al Gore on Friday criticized the "trivialities and nonsense" of celebrity gossip in the media and called on people to focus instead on issues like Iraq and climate change.
Gore, who is promoting his new book "The Assault on Reason," made the comments at a book signing in New York, where he was treated to a rock star reception by more than 1,300 cheering and screaming fans.
"What is it about our collective decision-making process that has led us to this state of affairs where we spend much more time in the public forum talking about -- or receiving information about -- Britney Spears shaving her head or Paris Hilton going to jail?" Gore asked.

Jobless Romanians are to be given goats instead of welfare benefits as part of a scheme to make them contribute more to the economy.
Under the pilot project, welfare benefits are to be axed from September in a collection of villages in southeastern Romania, the Independenta district, where unemployed families instead will receive 10 goats each.
They will be expected to milk the animals and sell milk and cheese to earn an income, and when they find work, they will have to return the goats to the local council.
The scheme has been set up by the council's campaigning mayor, Cristea Gascan, who said: "We have 30 families that are on benefits, and just paying them cash does not help them or us. But with goats they are making a positive contribution to the economy and will be working instead of sitting at home expecting handouts."
Under Romanian law, unemployed people who can demonstrate an income of less than $24 a month a head are eligible for assistance of up to $80 a month from their local council, which receives funds from the central government. Independenta has a population of just over 3,000 and unemployment of 8%. "We have 30 families that qualify for aid, but there are no rules on what form that aid takes," Mr. Gascan said. "We are thinking about their own good when we do this. Ten premium goats will go to all the families entitled to benefits and any who refuse will not be offered any cash alternative — after all, it will mean they are turning down work and that is a reason to stop their benefits. It is the goats or nothing."
Mr. Gascan said all families receiving the goats will have to pay a "tax" of three kids a year to the city hall.
Here are some of the reasons why:
Sheriff Joe Arpaio (in Arizona ) who created the "tent city jail":
He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.
He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights Cut off all but "G" movies.
He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.
Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination.
He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal court order that required cable TV for jails so he hooked up the cable TV again with only the Disney channel and the weather channel.
When asked why the weather channel he replied, so they will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs.
He cut off coffee since it has zero nutritional value.
When the inmates complained, he told them, "This isn't the Ritz/Carlton -- If you don't like it, don't come back."
He bought Newt Gingrich's lecture series on tape that he pipes into the jails.
When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied "For one thing I don't know of any ... and some might say that these people already have enough of those ideas."

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Hogzilla is being made into a horror movie. But the sequel may be even bigger: Meet Monster Pig. An 11-year-old Alabama boy used a pistol to kill a wild hog his father says weighed a staggering 1,051 pounds and measured 9-feet-4 from the tip of its snout to the base of its tail. Think hams as big as car tires.
If the claims are accurate, Jamison Stone's trophy boar would be bigger than Hogzilla, the famed wild hog that grew to seemingly mythical proportions after being killed in south Georgia in 2004.
Hogzilla originally was thought to weigh 1,000 pounds and measure 12 feet in length. National Geographic experts who unearthed its remains believe the animal actually weighed about 800 pounds and was 8 feet long.
Regardless of the comparison, Jamison is reveling in the attention over his pig, which has a Web site put up by his father—http://www.monsterpig.com —that is generating Internet buzz.
"It feels really good," Jamison, of Pickensville, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. "It's a good accomplishment. I probably won't ever kill anything else that big."
Jamison, who killed his first deer at age 5, was hunting with father Mike Stone and two guides in east Alabama on May 3 when he bagged Hogzilla II. He said he shot the huge animal eight times with a .50- caliber revolver and chased it for three hours through hilly woods before finishing it off with a point-blank shot.
Through it all there was the fear that the animal would turn and charge them, as wild boars have a reputation of doing.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) - A man whose face was severely mauled by a grizzly in Yellowstone National Park is a photographer and author of books about grizzlies who also had been attacked in 1993.
The National Park Service said Jim Cole, 57, was hiking alone, off- trail in prime grizzly habitat Wednesday when he was attacked by a sow with a cub. He apparently was carrying pepper spray but whether he used it was unclear.
Cole told rangers he walked two to three miles to seek help.
Cole, of Bozeman, Mont., was in fair condition Friday at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls. He underwent seven hours of surgery Thursday to repair his face.
Longtime friend Rich Berman said Cole was unable to speak and was breathing through a ventilator and being fed through a tube. "He's lucky to be alive," Berman said.
Berman said the bear hit Cole twice on the head and face with its claws, and the park service said there weren't any bite marks. That indicates the attack wasn't predatory, but was rather a defensive or protective action by the mother bear.
In 1993, Cole was attacked by a grizzly in Glacier National Park in Montana, but was hurt much less seriously, according to his description in one of his books.
He and a friend were hiking when they surprised a young grizzly. Cole's scalp was torn and his wrist was broken by the bear, but the friend was able to scare it away.
Cole's books—"Lives of Grizzlies: Montana and Wyoming" and "Lives of Grizzlies: Alaska"—contain his photographs and personal narratives based on traveling and observing grizzlies for many years.
In 2005, he was acquitted of willfully approaching within 100 yards of bears in Yellowstone. Cole said he came upon the bears inadvertently, snapped a few pictures and backed away slowly.
Grizzly bears and black bears are active throughout Yellowstone this time of year. Park visitors are encouraged to travel in groups, make noise and carry canisters of bear pepper spray.
The park service says no human injuries from bears in Yellowstone were reported last year and only eight minor injuries were reported since The last bear-caused human fatality in the park was in 1986.
Klown note: -- Acquitted? -- wtf? -- also, I wonder if they found the pepper spray crammed up his ass.

He was strapped to a gurney and covered up to his neck with a sheet.
There was no sight of the catheter into his groin that made the lethal injection possible, no sight of the executioners on the other side of a wall.
But Comer was smiling; he had petitioned the federal courts to stop his appeals and hasten his own execution. He was in control of his destiny.
Comer brought a picture of his daughter with him to the death chamber and used his last words to say, "Go, Raiders."
Fiery Anti-U.S. Cleric Reappears in Iraq
BAGHDAD (AP) - Radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr appeared in public for the first time in months on Friday, delivering a fiery anti-American sermon to thousands of followers and demanding U.S. troops leave Iraq.
It was not immediately clear why he chose to return now to his base in the Shiite holy city of Najaf from Iran. His speech had new nationalist overtones, calling on Sunnis to join with him in the fight against the U.S. presence. He also criticized the government's inability to provide reliable services to its people.
Al-Sadr's reappearance, four months after he went underground at the start of the U.S.-led Baghdad security crackdown, came just hours before his Mahdi Army militia lost its top commander in the southern city of Basra in a gunbattle with British soldiers, Iraqi police said.
But -- wtf with these religous peeps always causing trouble??
I guess Iraq has it's "clerics" and the US has it's "Reverends."

In 1986, Mkele Mbembe was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University.
On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Mbembe approached it very carefully.
He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant's foot and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it.
As carefully and as gently as he could, Mbembe worked the wood out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.
The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments.
Mbembe stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away.
Mbembe never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.
Twenty years later, Mbembe was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son.
As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Mbembe and his son Tapu were standing.
The large bull elephant stared at Mbembe, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.
Remembering the encounter in 1986, Mbembe couldn't help wondering if this was the same elephant.
Mbembe summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Mbembe' s legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.
Probably wasn't the same elephant.

In the Islamic Republic of Iran, male homosexual acts, or lavat, are punishable by death.
Iranian authorities arrested 87 people, including 80 suspected gay men, Thursday night at a party in Isfahan, beating most of them and detaining them in dire conditions over the weekend, the Toronto-based Iranian Queer Organization reported Monday.
Police raided the birthday party of a man the rights group identified only as Farhad, beating the male guests with batons and arresting the host's parents as well, the rights group said after talking with witnesses by phone.
The women were released soon after; witnesses said; the men remain in custody without bail or visitors.
In the Islamic republic of Iran, male homosexual acts, or lavat, are punishable by death. Rights workers said they feared the detainees could be tortured.
"I went to buy a gift for Farhad and so I arrived late for the party," a man identified as Peyman told the Iranian Queer Organization by phone.
"As soon as I turned in to their street, I saw police cars parked everywhere; all my friends were arrested while seven or eight policeman beat them with batons.
"Two had jumped from the second-floor window and were in a bad condition. Farhad's family were also arrested. Everyone was transported into a big car and taken into custody. All their cell phones are off and we have no information about the situation inside the jail."
Hey ... wait a minute ... this isn't about filthy hobos??

Al Gore, Edward R. Murrow and Senator McCarthy
Posted by Michael M. Bates on May 22, 2007 - 12:32.
ABC News' Web site carries an excerpt from Al Gore's book, "Assault on Reason." The Internet's inventor writes of what's known as McCarthyism and cites broadcaster Edward R. Murrow, "whose courageous journalism was assaulted by Senator Joseph McCarthy. . . "
But how courageous was Murrow? Did he save the Republic from a man whose vicious tactics silenced any criticism?
There was already massive media opposition to the Wisconsin senator. Edwin Bayley’s 1981 book, “Joe McCarthy and the Press,” catalogs newspaper coverage after Joe launched his anti-Communism crusade in February, 1950.
What a shocker --- Al Gore thinks Edward R Murrow was a hero. All the modern "objective jourrrrrnalists" think he's their hero --- and yet -- the Klown thinks Edward R Murrow was a COMMUNIST JACKASS. Just goes to show how some folks can disagree.
On Tuesday, "Good Morning America" continued it’s week-long promotion of prominent Democrats with a profile of Barack Obama’s wife, Michelle. Co-anchor Robin Roberts, who in teases for the interview on Monday, glowingly referred to Mrs. Obama as "amazing," "very confident" and "professional," today added "strong" and "warm" to the list of adjectives used to describe the Democrat’s wife.
She also asked almost no tough questions of Michelle Obama. Will the spouses of Republican candidates, such as Ann Romney, be awarded such adulation?
Back in November, GMA’s Diane Sawyer queried Barack Obama as to whether Americans were "secretly" more racist or sexist. Ms. Roberts seemed to be posing the slightly less inflammatory version of that question to Michelle Obama:
Robin Roberts: "With a landmark run of both Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Obama for the 2008 presidential bid, many wonder who has a better shot at making history. Do you think the American public is ready for a woman more so than an African American or vice versa?"
Hey -- jackass jourrrrrnalist -- What if "America is ready" for someone who is qualified, serious, and not afraid of taking the fight to the terrorists??
Black? -- Woman? -- What kind of idiotic thinking is that? Who cares the color or the sex --- Seriously -- pack your shit and get off the TV. Go home and shut the fuck up.
Oh -- and anyone who puts a label in front of "American" deserves scorn. FUCK ALL YOU ASSHOLES WHO PUT YOUR "AFRICAN/ITALIAN/WHATEVER" in front of "American." -- AS IF YOU'RE FROM FUCKING AFRICA ... you'll probably never see Africa.
This shithook barely -- and I mean BARELY -- escaped an ABSCAM bust due to a technicality ... and he's still up there in Congress stealing my money. I can't fathom the stupidity necessary to keep voting for peeps like this ... or "mayor" Barry ... or that asshole congressman from New Orleans who was caught with $90,000 crisp in his freezer.
I can just see the cops now -- "Hey boss --- look -- we caught him -- $90,000 in his freezer too -- go ahead boss -- give him the 'what for' --- ha ha -- you're going to get it now, jackass -- hey boss -- aren't you going to do anything to him? -- no? -- but we -- oh fuck -- nevermind.
When Democrats took control of the House and Senate in January, they vowed to reform the practice of placing earmarks in spending bills. Members seeking earmarks would have to identify themselves and their intentions in time for staffers to review the items, leaders said.
House Democrats rejected a Republican bid Tuesday to reprimand Rep. John Murtha, a senior lawmaker accused of threatening legislative reprisals against a GOP member who had crossed him.
Murtha, known for his gruff manner and fondness of pork barrel projects, did not dispute claims that he charged across the House floor May 17 to confront Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich.
Rogers had tried unsuccessfully to strike a $23 million Murtha earmark - a targeted spending item - for a drug intelligence center in Murtha's district.
In a House speech Monday, Rogers said Murtha threatened him by saying, "you will not get any earmarks now and forever." Rogers, backed by House GOP leaders, said Murtha's threat violated congressional ethics rules.

See -- this is something a lefty would never do .... post a joke where someone makes fun of his beliefs. That is because his beliefs are based on shaky ground and he thinks any little hint of assault upon them will surely tear them asunder. Any exposure to his soft underbelly would surely result in the removal of his necessary guts. (Which is true enough if you're fighting a conservative -- you know -- who won't feel sorry for you and will take the first opportunity to run your raggedy ass through with the longest implement at hand.)
Anyway -- here is the lefty joke -- If you can grant its author some editorial license -- and imagine for just one minute that his premise is correct -- then the joke is funny. If you can't grant the license -- go practice impaling peeps until I call for you again.

In one of the day's many conversations focused on the situation in the Middle East, Carter talked with Hatem Bazian (left), a lecturer in Near Eastern Studies, and Aidan Ali-Sullivan, one of the Berkeley students whose invitation brought Carter to campus.
Readers may remember Hatem Bazian from an earlier zombietime report, calling for "an intifada" in the United States.
"Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Well, we've been watching intifada in Palestine, we've been watching an uprising in Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? How come we don't have an intifada in this country? Because it seem[s] to me, that we are comfortable in where we are, watching CNN, ABC, NBC, Fox, and all these mainstream... giving us a window to the world while the world is being managed from Washington, from New York, from every other place in here in San Francisco: Chevron, Bechtel, [Carlyle?] Group, Halliburton; every one of those lying, cheating, stealing, deceiving individuals are in our country and we're sitting here and watching the world pass by, people being bombed, and it's about time that we have an intifada in this country that change[s] fundamentally the political dynamics in here. And we know every-- They're gonna say some Palestinian being too radical -- well, you haven't seen radicalism yet!"

130 Lashes for Two Beers
This is sickening. A 35-year-old man, Mamand Mamandy, was visiting his mother in Baneh, Iran, when he was caught drinking beer by the police.
I mean -- first of all -- why are they "taking refuge?" Are the camps safer than the houses in town? I don't get it.
Lebanese troops today shelled a Palestinian refugee camp, a day after more than 55 people were killed in fighting between Sunni militants and government forces.
More background FROM ACE:
No need for photoshopping here to really sell the carnage -- Lebanon shelling Palestinain refugee camps just isn't really all that bad. Kind of understandable when dealing with terrorist provocations, you know. Can't make an omlette and all that.
Just curious as to why the Lebanese are permitted to fight wars against terrorists killing their civilians whereas the Israelis aren't. Must be the scary power of that Jew Lobby Ron Paul's always on about.
A prominent story, to be sure, but don't expect the full-court media press we saw in the Israeli-Hamas war.
Ron Paul & His Views
Paul reported on gang crime in Los Angeles and commented, "If you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be."
"Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the `criminal justice system,' I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal," Paul said.
Paul also wrote that although "we are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers."
Stating that lobbying groups who seek special favors and handouts are evil, Paul wrote, "By far the most powerful lobby in Washington of the bad sort is the Israeli government" and that the goal of the Zionist movement is to stifle criticism.
I didn't research this -- didn't figure I had to since I heard this moron suggest that 911 is America's fault -- you know -- for antagonizing peeps in the middle east. If you want to research it, go ahead.
After I wrote this, I went back and re-read his comments -- and I asked myself -- are any of those comments untrue ?? Judge for yourself.
From here: ... UPDATE: Here is the complete article for which he now appears to excuse by saying it wasn't his writing in that newsletter....even tho it's his newsletter.
UPDATE: I was going to delete this post -- because apparently those were NOT his words. However, before I got the chance to delete the post, someone left a comment saying I libeled Ron Paul. So ... I'll let the post stand (except I changed the title from the original "Ron Paul & his racial views" to the current title ) -- and once again -- you can JUDGE FOR YOURSELF.
OH -- and here is the link he told me to check for the facts .. you know ... "before I libeled him." I checked the link and I see statements ... but nothing to back them up. When I clicked on the "home" link, I saw what appears to be a white-supremicist site. JUDGE FOR YOURSELF.
1 - INCREASED MY CIGARETTE TAXES. You know ... cuz smoking is a sin and we can TAX the everloving shit out of a WITCH!!!!!! -- uh .... I mean, sinner.
2 - BANNED ONLINE POKER. You know -- cuz playing poker is a sin and we can BAN the everloving shit out of a WITCH!!!!! -- uh .... I mean, sinner.
3 - BLOCKED TAX REFORM. You know -- cuz the current tax system can't be changed and it's far too complicated to explain to you dumbasses. Anyway -- screw off, dorks. It's not like you're going to vote for anyone other than one of us Dems/Repubs ... so go ahead and vote -- see what good it does you.
4 - PROSECUTED MY BORDER CONTROL OFFICERS. You know ... let the drug runner go and put the guys who caught him in jail. Nice work, shitforbrains.
5 - CALLED FOR THEIR PIPE AND CALLED FOR THEIR BOWL AND CALLED FOR THEIR FIDDLERS, THREE. You know -- all the fuck they do is sit up there and "call for" peep's resignation ... or they're "calling for" someone to apologize ... or they're "calling for" a special prosecutor ... or they're "calling for" an investigation into something.
You need look no further than the right column of this blog for a short list of things they COULD be doing instead. And, while I'm at it ... why do most Republicans look and act like evangelical/televangelist homo preachers who just escaped from the top of a wedding cake. And, why do most Democrats look and act like paranoid/twitchy escapees from a mental hospital (many of whom have had cosmetic surgery.)
Dirty, rotten, bastards. Never again will I vote for a Republican or a Democrat .... never again. In my entire life, I have not seen them do anything helpful to freedom. All I see them doing is releasing/pampering violent criminals and taxing/restricting law-abiding citizens and taxing/restricting the free market and capitalism.
I firmly believe they'd rip freedom from your hands, if only the pesky constitution wasn't in their way -- and I see them daily, doing everything in their power to weaken the constitution.

The horn curves downward and looks like the stalk of a pumpkin, reports the Yangcheng Evening Post.
Granny Zhao, 95, of Zhanjiang city, Guangdong province, says it first appeared three years ago.
"At first, it was only a mole, but it gradually grew and became like a horn," she said.
Zhao says the horn causes her little trouble except to affect her vision slightly: "It causes me no discomfort, but blocks part of my view."
But her family are hoping that medical experts can explain the phenomenon.
Poisonous, hissing spider attacks man and cat
A terrified man told yesterday how a poisonous, hissing spider attacked him and his cat in his kitchen.
It reared up on its hind legs and charged at James Hoskins' bare feet when he disturbed it under a broom.
Shop worker James, 27, of Bideford, Devon, leaped on to a unit, but the vicious beast, possibly a false black widow, attacked his cat Bernie, biting his paw.
James said: "I've never seen a spider like it. It was so aggressive and even hissed when it ran at me.
After the stand-off I caught it in a cup, and let it go in a hedge."
Let it go in a hedge? He must be a liberal. The klown would have let it go attached to a firecracker. HISS AT THAT, you eight- legged bastard.
So some students started asking questions like "will there be an alternative viewpoint presented?"
Here's one answer by a jackass "professor."
From: Jeffrey Hughes [email@example.com]
After an initial and heated debate, scientists no longer question whether the atmosphere is being warmed due to human activities and instead are increasingly impressed with the speed and impact of the process. I repeat: there is no doubt that we’re warming the earth and that a continuation of our activities will lead to profound changes.

Gore's Inconvenient Truth required classroom viewing?
By Kevin Libin, National PostPublished: Friday, May 18, 2007
First it was his world history class. Then he saw it in his economics class. And his world issues class. And his environment class. In total, 18-year-old McKenzie, a Northern Ontario high schooler, says he has had the film An Inconvenient Truth shown to him by four different teachers this year.
"I really don't understand why they keep showing it," says McKenzie (his parents asked that his last name not be used). "I've spoken to the principal about it, and he said that teachers are instructed to present it as a debate. But every time we've seen it, well, one teacher said this is basically a two-sided debate, but this movie really gives you the best idea of what's going on."
McKenzie says he has educated himself enough about both sides of the climate-change controversy to know that the Al Gore movie is too one-sided to be taught as fact.
What the Klown wants to know is ... HOW IS IT THIS FILM TURNS UP IN OUR SCHOOLS BY MAGIC? ALL OF A SUDDEN EVERY TEACHER GETS THE SAME IDEA? ALL THE SCHOOL BOARDS GO ALONG. ALL THE SCHOOL BOARDS AND TEACHERS ENSURE NO OTHER VIEWPOINT IS TOLERATED? NO WONDER SO MANY KIDS ARE IDIOTS ... LOOK WHO IS LEADING THEM.
I guess he figures that the non-arab governments just aren't "listening .. and caring."
Anyway -- so the terrorists McSnagged his Birkenstock-wearing ass. Now they're having a poll/vote online on whether or not to kill him. And boy is it running neck and neck (pardon the pun.) At least he'll find out what they want (non-muslims = dead).
My guess is someone told him ... but he couldna believe it.
REGRET, he shall, the times he defended the "poor palestinians" in his writings. Alas, the regret will be short-lived. T'will only begin when the knife is halfway through is throat. Yes ... it has been said that "objective jourrrrnalists" reach total enlightenment when a knife is halfway through their throat. This new learning speed has become known as the melon-lop ratio.

Prince Harry will not be deployed to Iraq due to concern about the number of "specific threats" made against his life, the head of the British Army announced this afternoon.
The 22-year-old prince, who is third in line to the throne, had been due to fly out to join the rest of his Blues and Royals squadron in the south of the country.
But his deployment has now been cancelled, although the Ministry of Defence has not ruled out sending him to the region in the future.
Sir Richard Dannatt, the head of the British Army, said in a statement that the risk to the prince and his men was "unacceptable".
"There have been a number of specific threats – some reported and some not reported - which relate directly to Prince Harry as an individual," he said.
"These threats expose not only him but also those around him to a degree of risk that I now deem unacceptable."
The bad part is ... I'll bet the Prince is actually pissed off. If t'were me (and it isn't) I'd be raising holy hell until I got to go. They're making a fool of him by refusing to allow him the dignity of serving.
So what is the proper thing to do? --- The klown says "Allow the Prince to go --- make it an all-volunteer regiment (or whatever the fuck the unit is) --- be done with it.
If you aren't going to have the royals allowed to serve when it's "dangerous" ... then don't dress them up as soldiers ... you know --- cuz FUCKING SOLDIERS GO WHEN THE BIG TALK IS FINISHED AND THE ACTION IS STARTING. GD IDIOTS !!!
As a feminist, I used to worry about the implications of my predilection for dirty talk in bed. What does it mean, exactly, I'd wonder, that I enjoy a guy asking me do you like that, huh, do you like that, you little whore?

1986: "This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."
2007: "Now it is time for action. 2007 is the year we must fix our broken system."
However -- take a subject that REALLY means something (tax reform) -- have it attended by 8-10,000 peeps -- have Presidential candidates support it -- get it mentioned on the Presidential debates -- it could probably be the best thing to happen to America since the Boston Tea Party -- WHERE IS THE MEDIA ?? -- WHERE COULD IT BE ?? -- NEVERMIND, DUMBASS -- The media has determined you don't need to know anything about this. They can't worry about this, when somewhere, Cindy Sheehan could be making an interesting shape with one of her turds.
Sean Hannity speaks at the rally in Columbia May 17, 2007.
For your information -- there have been several of these in different areas of the country lately. Each one larger than the one before. Shocked? Don't be. The klown predicts the media will start covering this soon --- and when they do, they'll be telling you that only idiots (like Hannity) support this legisaltion.
The klown has read the book -- it's excellent. The klown thinks that this tax system would make America so attractive to large businesses in the global economy, it might make YOU rich as a side benefit. But nevermind that -- it actually takes thought ... and takes time away from thinking about who Paris Hilton might be fucking right now.

That pic actually runs with the story, but, while the caption mentions the slain woman by name, it doesn't specify that that's actually her in the picture. It kinda suggests it's her, but never says so.

It is unclear what role, if any, religion played in the attack Mr. Shnewer and the five other men are charged with planning. (The sixth suspect, Agron Abdullahu, had no apparent connection with Al-Aqsa or the South Jersey Islamic Center.) The authorities have described the suspects as Islamic extremists, but the lengthy criminal complaint summarizing the F.B.I.’s 15-month undercover investigation of the group does not mention where — or how often — they prayed. Certainly there is no evidence that they picked up radical ideas at either mosque.
Yes --- Quite a stumper, I must say. Yes -- a real class-A mystery .... you know .... if you're a brainless writer for the New York Times. (Or any objective jourrrrrrnalist, for that matter)

Break Out the French Wine
By Fred Thompson
The election of Nicolas Sarkozy to the presidency of France has been a serious blow to those who claim that America has earned the undying hatred of Europeans. Oh, to be sure, the French media hates us, but there are a lot of people who say ours does too. Regardless, Sarkozy’s victory has sent shock waves through the world’s media centers.
A French president who openly admires America is an embarrassment to those who view us as the country bumpkin cousins of the sophisticated Europeans. American pundits and politicians who say we should change our foreign policies to win the European popularity contest ought to be feeling a little embarrassed too.
From the beginning, Sarkozy pledged to help heal the ill feelings that have existed between our two countries — especially over Iraq. He outraged French Socialists and journalists by coming to America during his campaign to meet with our president. He has praised America’s dynamism, freedoms and prosperity, and he promises to work for reforms that will make France more like the U.S.
Sarkozy’s victory over anti-American political forces was not just decisive; it was far more of a mandate than our own current congress claims. In his first post-election speech, he went out of his way to say, “I want to call out to our American friends to tell them that they can count on our friendship.”
