Superman eschews longtime patriot act

Drudge linked to this article where Superman is not American anymore.
But in the latest film incarnation, scribes Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris sought to downplay Superman's long-standing patriot act. With one brief line uttered by actor Frank Langella, the caped superhero's mission transformed from "truth, justice and the American way" to "truth, justice and all that stuff."

"The world has changed. The world is a different place," Pennsylvania native Harris says. "The truth is he's an alien. He was sent from another planet. He has landed on the planet Earth, and he is here for everybody. He's an international superhero." [emphasis mine]
Bite me.
"We were always hesitant to include the term 'American way' because the meaning of that today is somewhat uncertain," Ohio native Dougherty explains. "The ideal hasn't changed. I think when people say 'American way,' they're actually talking about what the 'American way' meant back in the '40s and '50s, which was something more noble and idealistic." [emphasis mine]
Not to me is the meaning uncertain. I was looking forward to seeing this movie. Not anymore.
Nevertheless, the long-standing member of the Justice League of America seems to have traded in his allegiance to the flag for an international passport.

"He's here for humanity," Dougherty says.
It's your movie and you can do what you want but you just screwed with an American icon.

My dollars will be spent elsewhere.
Superman, movies, Hollywood

Now it all makes sense!

It struck me as strange that Israel buzzed Syria. Why would they do that?

In my inbox, was a message from the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center called for an international arrest warrant to be issued for the apprehension of Hamas leader and one of Israel's most wanted men, Khaled Mashaal, who is the chief architect in the terror campaign against Israel. This, in wake of the recent attacks including the murder of two Israeli soldiers, the kidnapping of a third soldier, and the killing of an 18-year old.

“The time has come for the United Nations to demand that Syria give up Khaled Mashaal and to issue an international arrest order for his apprehension,” wrote Rabbi Marvin Hier, the Center’s Founder and Dean, in a letter to United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan.

He is no less an international pariah and outlaw than Osama Bin Ladin and Ayman Zawahiri and should be tried for his crimes against humanity. Mashaal is the real face of Hamas and as long as the international community allows him to live freely and continue his terrorist activities, there will be no road map and no prospects to achieve Middle East peace,” added Hier. [emphasis mine]
Now it all makes sense.

Mr. Keller Believes You Are Easily Confused

Hugh Hewitt provides an excellent fisking on Bill Keller's arrogant response in the NY Times on his decision to put himself in league with our enemies. Here is a sample or two of the article.

Forgive me, I know this is pretty elementary stuff รข€” but it's the kind of elementary context that sometimes gets lost in the heat of strong disagreements.

How condescending can a MSMer be? To pretend to be discussing "elementary stuff" while avoiding the issue is as arrogant as can be imagined.

I can appreciate that other conscientious people could have gone through the process I've outlined above and come to a different conclusion. But nobody should think that we made this decision casually, with any animus toward the current Administration, or without fully weighing the issues.

I don't believe him, and there is no reason to believe him. The paper has been waging a war on the war and on the Adminsitration for years, so it has no credibility when it comes to arguing its good intentions.

What matters though is the statement that "other conscientious people" could have reached a different decision.

In fact, they did. The Congresses and the presidents of the past have passsed laws about what is classified and who can release it. They didn't include the editor of the New York Times in the group that can make national security decisions. Mr. Keller decided he would risk the national security of the United States and the lives of its citizens. He has done so before and will no doubt do so again.

Amen, Mr Hewitt

My Selections For The 20 Worst Americans List

From Right Wing News

Keith Olbermann has a book coming out later this year entitled, The Worst Person In the World: And 119 More Strong Contenders.

Sounds like a fun topic for a book, doesn't it? In fact, it sounded like so much fun that I decided to modify it a bit and turn it into a poll topic for the right side of the blogosphere. But, what definition should be used for the "worst American?" Well, since we're paying homage to Keith Olbermann here, it seemed fair to use his definition:

"It's a euphemism for somebody who's wrong and egregiously stupid and abusing their own position."

The only real caveat I gave to the bloggers being polled was that no serial killers or mass murderers were allowed. Everyone knows they're rotten people and there didn't seem to be a point to having them clutter up the list.

So, Right Wing News emailed more than 225 right-of-center bloggers and asked them to send in an unranked list of 1-20 of the "worst" Americans, going by how Keith Olbermann defines the word.

I like the list and wanted to share it. My favorites?

Paris Hilton: A stupid, spoiled slut who has helped popularize her idiotic lifestyle.
Ted Rall: A bitter, spite filled ultra-lib, without the slightest shred of human decency.
Bill Clinton: A former President who disgraced the office and who has broken tradition by publicly trying to undermine the President, especially on foreign policy.
Jimmy Carter: One of the worst Presidents of the last hundred years. Completely incompetent, hopelessly naive, a strong supporter of various dictators, and he also has broken tradition by publicly trying to undermine the President, especially on foreign policy.

Where Indeed?

Allow me to quote from a bit describing what those animals did to our soldiers:

have their hearts cut out, their testicles cut off, their penises cut off and stuffed in their mouths, arms contorted and eyes gouged?

…and that’s not mentioning the beheading.

And what do we hear from the puling, pissant, terrorist-supporting MSM? Nothing. They don’t even have the courage to describe what those fucking sand lice did, presumably because they don’t want us to get angry with the ululating chimps hopping around with rags on their heads, waving their scimitars and committing atrocities that would make Dr. Mengele curl his toes.

What we DO hear is an endless litany about Abu Ghraib, Haditha and the fact that a few of the koranimal insects have killed themselves at Gitmo.

Cry me a fucking river, will you?

And me too.

What I am reading today:
Liars Frontpagemag
These rhetorical assaults made against a sitting president during a time of war would be somewhat less vicious, egregious, or gratuitous were they born of heartfelt conviction. However, yesterday’s disclosure was not exactly news. For one thing, many of the “Bush lied”/”Saddam never had WMDs” brigade had thundered that Hussein had chemical and biological weapons before, during, and after the initiation of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Only after the Soros-funded "base" of their party made a pro-war stance political suicide did most of today's critics turn against the president, the war, and the mission they had sent more than 100,000 American troops to die achieving.

Then the president’s harshest detractors turned a blind eye to proof of Saddam’s verboten cache.

Ticket to Ride: Gullible American Chicks are Islam's Most Wanted Debbie Schlussel
There are thousands of these women. The problem is not just that these American daughters are so desperate for a man's attention that they are willing to jeopardize our nation's security for it. It's that federal authorities aren't doing much to prosecute Islamic sham marriages. The Washington Times reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has decided not to investigate most of them. Stopping marriage fraud is not on ICE's agenda.

Episcopal Bishop: Homosexuality Not a Sin

UPDATE: Nice piece from
Harris just mangled the facts when he turned to claiming "a grandmother in Pennsylvania will be ordained as a Catholic the Vatican will not condone." So if the Vatican will not recognize the ordination, is it an ordination? In fact, Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) excommunicated women claiming to be priests. Let's go secular with this argument. If I decided to buy a microphone and a TV camera, and I put ABC logos on them, am I an ABC reporter? Or does ABC think I don't need to be officially recognized as an ABC reporter before I go around town claiming to be ABC?
What else can we expect from Episcopalians?
The first woman leader of the 2.3 million-member Episcopal Church said Monday that she believed homosexuality was no sin and homosexuals were created by God to love people of the same gender.

"The Bible has a great deal to teach us about how to live as human beings. The Bible does not have so much to teach us about what sorts of food to eat, what sorts of clothes to wear -- there are rules in the Bible about those that we don't observe today," she said.

"The Bible tells us about how to treat other human beings, and that's certainly the great message of Jesus -- to include the unincluded."

So I guess we can pick and choose from the Bible what rules we follow and what we don't? Then why bother with the Bible at all? Jesus also taught that we should control ourselves, did He not? Of course, this interpretation would not fit with the "bishop"'s way of thinking.
The philosophy of substituting God's Word with one's own reasoning commenced with Satan. He introduced it at the outset of the human race by suggesting to Eve that she ignore God's orders, assuring her that in so doing she would become like God with the power to discern good and evil (Genesis 3:1-5). That was Satan's big lie. Paul said that when any person rejects God's truth, his mind becomes "reprobate," meaning perverted, void of sound judgment. The perverted mind, having rejected God's truth, is not capable of discerning good and evil.
But that is just one person's biblical interpretation. Never mind any other secular interpretation of the same topic.

In my book The Death of Right and Wrong I warn about the sexualization and targeting of children by the radical gay fringe. The announcement that a school in New York will open in September and be the first publicly run “gay high school” is a testament to that vile and loathsome agenda.

Really, do you honestly think if a child is actually sexually confused because his priest or Uncle Joe molested him, that anyone at the “gay school” is going to tell him that he just might need psychological help dealing with the trauma, and may be heterosexual and not gay at all?

Of course not. We’ll throw that kid on the garbage heap so gay malignant narcissists can feel more “normal” by making kids be just like them. While the gay establishment refuses to address the impact our histories have on our sexual identity, I refuse to let that cowardice take children as its next victims.

The other remarkably specious argument is that these children, because of their “sexuality,” are being beaten up and otherwise harassed in their regular high school to such a degree that they cannot function in a normal environment. How did that happen in progressive and liberal New York City?
Or this:
Smokers and drug addicts don't live as long as non-smokers or non-addicts, so we consider smoking and narcotics abuse harmful. The typical life-span of homosexuals suggests that their activities are more destructive than smoking nd as dangerous as drugs.

Obituaries numbering 6,516 from 16 U.S. homosexual journals over the past 12 years were compared to a large sample of obituaries from regular newspapers.23 The obituaries from the regular newspapers were similar to U.S. averages for longevity; the medium age of death of married men was 75, and 80% of them died old (age 65 or older). For unmarried or divorced men the median age of death was 57, and 32% of them died old. Married women averaged age 79 at death; 85% died old. Unmarried and divorced women averaged age 71, and 60% of them died old.

The median age of death for homosexuals, however, was virtually the same nationwide--and, overall, less than 2% survived to old age. If AIDS was the cause of death, the median age was 39. For the 829 gays who died of something other than AIDS, the median age of death was 42, and 9% died old. The 163 lesbians had a median age of death of 44, and 20% died old.

Two and eight-tenths percent (2.8%) of gays died violently. They were 116 times more apt to be murdered; 24 times more apt to commit suicide; and had a traffic-accident death-rate 18 times the rate of comparably-aged white males. Heart attacks, cancer and liver failure were exceptionally common. Twenty percent of lesbians died of murder, suicide, or accident--a rate 487 times higher than that of white females aged 25-44. The age distribution of samples of homosexuals in the scientific literature from 1989 to 1992 suggests a similarly shortened life-span.

Maybe it is just me.

Hillary on GOP: 'They Can't Stomach Me'

Well, I can't argue with that.
"The Republicans can't stomach the fact that I'm leading the fight against their misplaced priorities," Clinton writes. [emphasis mine]

"If re-elected, Senator Clinton won't be in the Senate or in Syracuse, she will be gallivanting through the cornfields of Iowa or fundraising in Hollywood with Barbara Streisand, Warren Beatty and Sean Penn," said Spencer's campaign manager, Kevin Collins. "She's already a carpetbagger, now she's an absentee landlord too."

"Mrs. Clinton is an ambitious woman, and I have no problem with that," McFarland told the Associated Press on Wednesday. "But it has become increasingly obvious that her focus is on national politics, not New York. That's unfortunate, because 20 million New Yorkers deserve a senator who is committed full-time to their interests and to their interests alone."
From Hillary: Not a centrist
In the last five years, the American Conservative Union has reported that on its key Senate votes, her annual record was 12 percent conservative, 10 percent, 10 percent, zero percent in 2004, and then 12 percent again last year. Her career average is a score of 9 percent. How in the world does that number suggest an "unclear platform," something impossible to categorize?

Now take the liberal counterpart. Americans for Democratic Action found her to be 95 percent liberal on its key votes in her first four years, and she achieved liberal nirvana (100 percent) in 2005. Those "Senate hero" votes included voting against judicial nominee Janice Rogers Brown, voting to repeal Ronald Reagan's "Mexico City policy" preventing federal tax money from going to international abortion providers, and voting for Chuck Schumer's amendment that would forbid abortion protesters to declare bankruptcy to avoid fines or court judgments for their clinic protests.
Misplaced priorities? Like, um oh, I don't know, capitalism? Freedom of religion too maybe?
The reason that systems such as socialism and communism don't work in the real world and are ultimately destructive of the individual self; and of the human soul, is that they remove moral action and judgement from the individual and place it in the collective. The individual is not permitted to make his/her own moral judgements, and must obey the mandates of the collective. This can only work when the individual is stripped of all freedom to act independently and fears reprisals for doing so.

Read chapter one of "Godless"

On the Seventh Day, God Rested and Liberals Schemed

Public schools are forbidden from mentioning religion not because of the Constitution, but because public schools are the Left’s madrassas. According to Cornell law professor Gary Simson, sex education courses that teach abstinence until marriage are unconstitutional because they violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. Simson says recommending sexual abstinence to teenagers is wrong because it “teaches that this one belief is the only proper one.”

Liberals used to tell us they were teaching fisting to fourth-graders because “kids are going to have sex anyway!” (Yes, “fisting” is exactly what it sounds like; have a nice day!) Now they’ve dispensed with that and openly concede that they believe virtue is just one of many equally valid points of view that must be counterbalanced with the argument for promiscuity, group sex, fisting, and other lifestyle choices. At least the crazy Muslims get funding from Saudi Arabia for their madrassas. Liberals force normal Americans to pay for their religious schools.

While any reference to Moses in the schools is strictly prohibited, school authorities can force minors to attend sexually explicit presentations on anal sex and condom use. In 1992, Chelmsford (Massachusetts) High School hired Suzi Landolphi to give a mandatory “AIDS Awareness presentation” to the entire school, apparently designed to reach the one or two human beings on Planet Earth who hadn’t heard about AIDS.

By her own account, Landolphi is the product of a broken family. She says her mother was an alcoholic who committed suicide, her father physically abused her, and she herself was a chronic bed wetter until age ten. Landolphi was a five-time loser at marriage. So she is definitely the sort of person most parents would want talking to their children about sex. Naturally, the Chelmsford High School administrators realized they had found an Aristotle in their midst.

In her presentation, “Hot, Sexy, and Safer,” Landolphi began by telling the teenagers—who were forced by school authorities to be there—“I can’t believe how many people came here to listen to someone talk about sex, instead of staying home and having it yourself.” In the dry legal language of the complaint later filed by parents of some of the students, Landolphi also “used profane, lewd, and lascivious language to describe body parts and excretory functions,” including “eighteen references to orgasms, six references to male genitals, and eight references to female genitals.” (And that was just while thanking the school principal for inviting her.) She asked students to show their “orgasm faces” in front of a camera—which would certainly come in handy for any future on-camera careers in the adult film industry. She invited a male student on stage to lick a condom with her.

After discussing anal sex, Landolphi remarked that one would be “in deep sh—.” She told one male student he “had a nice butt” and another that his baggy pants were “erection wear.” This did not constitute sexual harassment under the law, because, like Bill Clinton, Landolphi supports abortion rights, one may assume. She concluded ninety minutes of this relentless vulgarity by asking a female student to place an oversized condom on the head of a male student and blow it up.

Like most people who enjoy talking to strangers about sex, Miss Landolphi, to put it as charitably as possible, is physically repulsive in appearance. With a presentation that was about as erotic as phone sex with Andrea Dworkin—or actual sex with Andrea Dworkin, come to think of it—Landolphi may have inadvertently promoted abstinence among the student body by generating widespread aversion to the various activities she described.

It’s no wonder Bible Belt, right-wing Christians get the greatest enjoyment out of sex (another scientific study hated by liberals)—they never have to endure listening to liberals talk about sex.

Parents of Chelmsford students immediately brought suit alleging that by forcing their children to attend Landolphi’s presentation without prior notice, the school had violated their privacy right to direct the upbringing of their children. But the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit could find no such right in the “living Constitution.” The “right to privacy” refers to the right of unmarried couples to obtain contraception. It encompasses the right to kill an unborn baby. It means the right of men to sodomize one another. Where these parents got the idea that “privacy” included their right to keep their children from being forced to make “orgasm faces” in school was anybody’s guess.

Tellingly, the federal appeals court also rejected the parents’ Free Exercise claim, questioning “whether the Free Exercise Clause even applies to public education.”

Thus, the court declared a clearly visible Constitutional clause—not buried in the penumbras—officially inapplicable to government schools. (Perhaps what threw them off was the fact that the free exercise of religion—unlike abortion, gay marriage, and sodomy—is specifically mentioned in the Constitution. You can see how that would be confusing.) Allowing parents to interfere with their children’s education might impair the state’s efforts to indoctrinate children into the official state religion of promiscuity, recycling, and freeing Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Colleges pick up where the public schools leave off, inculcating students in the religion of hating America and hating God. While college professors like the University of Colorado’s Ward Churchill act like on-the-edge radicals for calling American bond traders “little Eichmanns,” professors are the most cosseted, pussified, subsidized group of people in the U.S. workforce. They have concocted a system to preemptively protect themselves for not doing their jobs, known as “tenure.” They make a lot of money, have health plans that would make New York City municipal workers’ jaws drop, and work—at most—fifteen hours a week.

In theory, the only job requirement of a college professor is to be intelligent, provocative, and open-minded, but their reigning attribute is that they are ignorant, boring, and narrow-minded. These zealous pagans teach the official state religion of liberalism as axiomatic truth.

Read it all, in fact BUY THE BOOK.

No fathers need apply

What if God, nature and thousands of year of human experience turn out to be wrong, and marriage between one man and one woman is not, in fact, the single best way to bring children into the world and raise them up to be healthy adults?


In "Lesbian & Gay Parenting," a booklet published by the APA "to serve the needs of psychologists, lawyers and parties in family law cases," the group even infers that same-sex couples might make better parents than heterosexual couples. "The results of some studies suggest that lesbian mothers' and gay fathers' parenting skills may be superior to those of matched heterosexual couples," the booklet says. [emphasis mine]


Their aim is not to advance the welfare of children, it is to secure for same-sex couples the children nature denies them. Another Bible story holds the definitive rebuttal to their suit: Solomon knew a true mother would rather give up the child she loved than see it done irreparable harm.
Exactly. The goal is not equal protection, but superior class with special protections. Feh.

But the Bush nomination of Stephen Murphy should shock all freedom-loving Americans, let alone conservatives, because Murphy:
* Spent his days as an Assistant U.S. Attorney showing fellow U.S. Attorneys his favorite porn on the web. (Sources say he may have done the same as U.S. Attorney.)

* Broke federal law by leaking federal grand jury proceedings to Detroit News reporter (and fabricator) David Shepardson.

* Repeatedly hosted HAMAS and Iraqi Insurgent financiers and anti-Semites in his office and repeatedly praised them.

* Deliberately sat on multiple terror indictments and waited until Hezbollah terrorists were safely out of the country before he chose to do anything against them.

* Praised Hezbollah, said he didn't know why it was on the State Dept. Terrorist list, and praised and hung out with terror supporters and charities that are funding HAMAS, Hezbollah, and insurgents murdering our troops in Iraq.

* Praised far-left U.S. Congressman and "Fahrenheit 9/11" star John Conyers (who wanted Bush Impeachment and "Downing Memo" hearings), saying, "What a great lawyer and distinguished mind he is."

* Prosecuted only non-Muslims who commit hate crimes against Muslims, but recused himself from all cases involving Muslim hate crimes against others.

* Deliberately leaked, along with allies, confidential information about competitors to Detroit News Reporter Shepardson, so he could become U.S. Attorney, defeat the nomination of Judge Henry Saad to the Court of Appeals, and get the nomination for himself.

* Attacked Black Americans, asking, "Why are we letting them control the Republican Party?"

Is this the kind of man President Bush should be putting on one of the most important courts in the land?

Definitely not me! Spread the word.


U.S. Marines Build Shrine To Islam

Last week, military brass -- along with representatives from the terror-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations -- dedicated the first Muslim prayer center for the Marines as a symbol of the military's "religious tolerance" and "respect" for the faith the enemy uses to attack us. Already, plans are in the works to build by 2009 a bigger mosque at the Marine base in Quantico so Muslim service members can have a "proper place" to worship, and one that "honors their religious heritage," officials say, not realizing that the mosque can also be used by the enemy to build a Fifth Column inside the Marines.

The idea for the center came from
Navy Lt. Abuhena Mohammed Saifulislam, a young, smooth-talking Muslim chaplain, who wanted a permanent place of worship -- and "education" -- for the growing number of soldiers who are interested in -- and converting to -- Islam.

Quantico has only 24 Muslims on
base, so the mosque -- the first of its kind in the 230-year history of the Corps -- will also serve to introduce and draw other Marines to the faith. Large posters explaining how "Muslims love and respect Jesus" (but only as a minor prophet and not the son of God, which they view as blasphemous to Allah) line the inside of the white building. This is one way imam Saifulislam -- known on base simply as "Saif" -- bridges the faiths to reach out to Christian soldiers. Blacks are particularly susceptible to his pitch.

Say it ain't so. This is absolutely ridculous. This is NOT how I want my tax dollars spent.
