Tehran executes thousands of political prisoners

Part 56 – AUGUST 27, 1988
It is naive to show mercy to those who wage war on God . . . I hope that with your revolutionary rage and rancor toward the enemies of Islam, you can satisfy the Almighty. - Aytollah Khomeini, Letter ordering the execution of political prisoners

In late July, the National Liberation Army of Iran, the military wing of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran launched an armed incursion, named “Operation Eternal Light”, into Iran from its bases in Iraq.

Half-brother George Obama is what Barack Obama pretends to be

George ObamaMy Las Vegas-based, internationally syndicated colleague Steve Miller sent me a video last night, which introduces Barack Obama’s half-brother George to the world from faraway Kenya.

  The video is touted by CNN as the “first televised interview of Obama’s half brother”.

  While the Democrats were grooming Barack Obama for his Big Night in Denver, CNN must have been tracking down the half-brother who Italian Vanity Fair discovered living in Kenya some two weeks ago.

  Whether intended that way or not, the George Obama interview, I think is the best thing CNN ever did.

Russia is Selling Hezbollah surface-to-air and anti-tank missiles

imageHezbollah’s Leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah warned that his terrorist armed militia is now much, much, stronger than before the devastating war that took place in 2006 between his militia and Israel. He rhetorically and pompously alleged that his militia would destroy Israel if its army wages any attacks against Lebanon.
 


Nasrallah issued this threat last Saturday at a Boy Scout ceremony in Beirut, as a response to Israel’s Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s remark last week that “if Lebanon becomes a Hezbollah state, then we won’t have any restrictions” in striking the country. 

Olmert claimed that during the last war, Israel did not use all of its firepower because the enemy was Hezbollah and not its host country Lebanon.

Between Barack and the Hard Spot

Yesterday upon the stair / I met a man who wasn’t there. / He wasn’t there again today / I wish that man would go away.”  - Hugh Means (1875 – 1965)


I pondered some interesting questions earlier this week: Is Barack Obama more of an insurgent candidate than anyone has previously thought? How could the Clinton Campaign so badly “misunderestimate” the Obama Insurgency? Was this a DNC plan to whip up excitement that went awry? How much do far Left Progressives from the George Soros circle own Obama?

New Democratic Party leader Layton goes groupie in Obama’s Denver

imageNew Democratic Party (NDP) leader Jack Layton is a Barack Obama groupie.

With Prime Minister Stephen Harper preparing to call an election, Smilin’ Jack arrived in Denver yesterday.

  When Obama accepts his nomination in his Ancient Greek Temple setting tonight, Layton will be waving a blue and white placard with Obama’s name.

  “Democrats here are talking about the same kind of change we’re talking about in Canada,” said Layton.  “Whether it’s real action on climate change, forging trade policies that work for working families or standing up for jobs and better health care, there’s a real desire here to put the concerns of the kitchen table ahead of the boardroom table.”

Baghdad uses Mustard Gas on the Kurdish Rebels

Part 54 – AUGUST 25 1988
‘Survivors painted a grisly picture of noiseless bombs producing yellowish smoke smelling of bad garlic or rotten apples; of people, plants and livestock dying instantly as dead birds and bees fell from the sky. The bodies of the dead burned and blistered and later turned blackish blue.’ - Peter Galbraith and Christopher Van Hollen, Chemical Weapons Use in Kurdistan: Iraq’s Final Offensive

No baby cooing or “Less than One Minute Old” lyrics for Michelle’s DNC exit

imageRight down to the exit song, it was a Mrs. June Cleaver scenario for Mrs. Barack Obama at the Denver Pepsi Centre Monday night.

  Many women watching wept according to yesterday’s blogs.  In the finale after Michelle’s keynote speech, Barack’s family waved to Daddy when he appeared on satellite video asking the audience “How about Michelle Obama?” immediately after his greeting, “Hello from Kansas City.”

  But Mrs. Cleaver would never have served up a Marxist message in her brownies.

As a letter writer to Canada Free Press (CFP) pointed out, “Not once but three times she stated that her husband once told her that there is a significant difference between “what the world is and what the world should be”.

UN reports Iraqi use of gas against civilians

Part 53 – AUGUST 24 1988
“And so we resorted, not to poison gas, but to the atomic bomb. Are we therefore permitted to adopt a moral stance against the use of another kind of weapon - mustard gas? War is war is war. Poison gas, flame throwers, napalm, nuclear weapons - they are all obscene. How hypocritical to pick and choose.” - Stanley Frankel, New York, Aug. 8, 1988

Today, United Nations inspectors said that Iraq used mustard gas against Iranian civilians in a bombing raid near the town of Oshnaviyeh on Aug. 2.

Parents of son missing since Sunrise Propane explosion beg Canada to let them visit explosion site

imageEureka!

Call to CFP from India this morning. Visas issued by Canada Immigration!

The Canadian government should allow the wife and son of Rajinder Singh Saini to accompany him to Canada to help investigate the fate of their son, Parminder missing since the Toronto Sunrise Propane explosion.

  Canadian authorities approved a visa for Rajinder to come to Canada, but refused visas for his wife and son.

  “We do not want my father to have to travel to Canada alone in his emotional state without our moral support. 

“It’s been 15 long days already and we cannot sleep at night.  It is not a laptop that I lost, it is my brother and my parents’ son that is lost.”

He is tired, he is worried and he is heartbroken,” Parminder’s 33-year-old brother Bikramjit told Canada Free Press (CFP) in a telephone interview from Bathinda (Punjab) India last night.

Is the Evangelical Vote Really Split?

A recent survey by Crosswalk.com, the world’s largest Christian audience online, shows that Republican John McCain has a firm lead with the traditional, white evangelical voters, while African American evangelicals stand solidly with Democrat Barack Obama. Many evangelicals are still undecided, especially among African American and Hispanic groups.

Pompous pomp at Pepsi Center

imageIt’s DNC time in Denver. Time to replace Barack Hussein Obama’s halo with a crown.

  This morning signs with the single word “Unity” were stacked up and ready for delegate pick up outside the Denver Pepsi Center.  The public squabbling between the Obama and Clinton camps is, at least ostensibly, over. 

Make that over on the convention floor.  Outside, it continues with groups like Clintons4McCain taking the battle all the way to Election Day.

  Meanwhile back at the proverbial ranch, Hillary Clinton, who deems Joe Biden “a good man, a wise man, an experienced man”, will prove she doesn’t resent being passed over for VP. 

Denver’s Street People, known at other times as the homeless have all had their haircuts, been spiffed up and talcumed over with pretty smelling powder.  Those who haven’t been are hidden out of sight, staring at rented plasma television screens.

  It doesn’t matter to which God Democrats pray.  At the DNC Allah and Mother Earth are on the same platform.  It’s all Interfaith now, so pray, Brothers and Sisters, pray.

By the end of the day the mainstream media message will go out: There never was any disunity in the lead up to the DNC and anyone who says there was must be a blogger or a raging conspiracy theorist.

Joe Biden, friend of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps

imageSen. Joe Biden – Barack Obama’s eagerly anticipated running mate – should be named an honorary soldier in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). We’re all familiar with the IRGC: Iran’s unique corps of Islamist fighters who have been directly involved in deadly attacks against U.S. soldiers in Iraq – even Afghanistan – threatening our ships in the Persian Gulf; and organizing, training, equipping, funding, and providing direct operational support to Lebanon-based Hezbollah (perhaps the most dangerous terrorist army on earth). And that’s just for starters.

Also known as the Pasdaran, the IRGC is not Iran’s conventional territorial armed force, but the military force of the Khomeinist-inspired Islamic Revolution. The organization fields an army, a navy, and an air force, as well as an extranational special-operations force known as the Quds (Jerusalem) Force.

US navy to discipline no one

Part 49 – AUGUST 20, 1988
‘‘Perhaps the most puzzling mistake was the ultimate call of Flight 655 as descending instead of climbing. Everyone agreed that the plane was climbing until it was 15 miles away, when information passed to the captain became inconsistent. The reason for the inconsistency remains unclear.’’ - Admiral Crowe

Today, Defense Secretary Frank C. Carlucci said that no one from the United States Navy would be disciplined for the downing of an Iranian civilian jetliner by the USS Vincennes in the Persian Gulf on July 3.
