Is Peace Moonbeam a Fraud?

I've been studying the Supreme MoonBat, Peace Moonbeam's blog for some time now.

I really can't believe this chick. She hasn't grown up a bit since 1968. I've thought all along that the picture she's had on her site was probably TAKEN in 1968! HA!

I went over to her blog tonight to see what kind of ridiculous, outrageous, Anti-American, childishness she's been up to lately. Sure enough, she's FINALLY updated the pic on her blog. Go see it. I knew she wasn't really that cute. I just knew it.

In fact, I think the picture at the bottom of her latest post is really her. She says it's her so-called friend Scooter but if you take note of the under-arm hair you'll see what I mean.

I read her last three posts tonight. This flower child has been to see Fidel, Chavez, beaten poor little bunnies to death and gone to the Oscars just in the last month.

And she doesn't have a job. I'm sure she doesn't pay taxes.

To make matters even worse, half the right-leaning men on the internet are in love with her. Not that I care.

Grow up guys - she's a fraud. Look at her new photo! She's an aging, misguided, looney, perpetually adolescent, PETA, vegan, MoonBat, Manson-Girl Wanna-be.

Besides, she beat that poor little bunny to death after torturing it for Lord only knows how long!

What really irritated me about the whole thing tonight is that I was drinking a coke when I read her blog. Now I need a new keyboard and my monitor is a mess.

I would sue her - but she doesn't have a job.

Maybe she'll let me borrow her designed-by-a-little-bit-gay-designer Oscar gown as reparations for the damage her blog has done to my keyboard and monitor.

I wonder what color the gown is ....

Defeat the Anglo Saxons

When you read the post below, Al Quaeda's Last Warning remember the real story.

While this spokesman states we have been deceived by the Bush Administration and 'Jewish Pest', we need to remember what the people he represents have said all along.

The House of Islam’s war for world mastery is traditional, indeed venerable, and it is a quest that is far from over.

Hassan Abbasi, Director of the Center for Security Doctrines Research of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, security chief in the President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's administration says this:

The Western powers, especially the United States, still wield immense military and economic power that "looks formidable on paper." But they are unable to use that power because their populations have become "risk-averse." "The Western man today has no stomach for a fight," Abbasi says. "This phenomenon is not new: All empires produce this type of man, the self-centered, materialist, and risk-averse man.

and this

But it is not only the US that Abbasi wants to take on and humiliate. He has described Britain as "the mother of all evils". In his lecture he claimed that the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, and the Gulf states were all "children of the same mother: the British Empire." As for France and Germany, they are "countries in terminal decline", according to Abbasi. "Once we have defeated the Anglo-Saxons the rest will run for cover," he told his audience.

He says:

We have a strategy drawn up for the destruction of Anglo-Saxon civilization

Donald Rumsfield has said that if we continue to give over control of the media to our enemy we will lose the hearts and minds of the homeland of our Soldiers. When that happens we will lose the War on Terrorism.

I agree with Donald.

Al Qaeda Gives 'Last Warning'

The Middle East Media Research Institute is reporting:

Purported "Al-Qaeda Undercover Soldier, U.S.A": Last Warning to American People - Two Operations Will Occur; Your Homeland Security Agency Must Surrender; States Far Away From Washington, D.C. Such as Arizona Will Be Hit; We Await Orders From Our Commander Osama Bin Laden; America Will Be Brought to its Knees

On March 10, 2006, the Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF) posted, on the Islamic websites, a final warning to the American people, on behalf of "Rakan Ben Williams" who defines himself as "Al-Qaeda under cover soldier, USA [sic]."

There Will Be Two Operations in the U.S.

"Despite the fact that the New York, Washington, Madrid, and London expeditions have been carried out a few years back. The search for clues on how they were conducted in such a successful manner is still going on and reports upon reports are still being written about them. However, the next expedition might not find someone who can provide analysis for. The top intellects, strategists, and analysts, will be totally clueless as to how to explain what occurred. Let me also inform you that we are talking about two operations, not one. The scale of one of them is larger than the other but both are large and significant. However, we will start with the smaller, and temporarily put the larger on hold to see how serious the Americans are about their lives. Should you value your own life and security, accept Muslims' demands, but if you shall prefer death (over giving in to Muslims' demands). Then, we, by the grace of Allah, are the best in bringing it (death) to your door steps.

Bush and His Clan are Incapable of Protecting You

"Do not put your hopes on Bush and his clan, they are incapable of protecting you, and if they think they are, let them foil or stop the two upcoming operations, and punish those who are responsible for them. But if they could not identify and foil the devastating events coming your way, you must ask yourselves: How long will we continue allowing ourselves to be slaughtered with full advance knowledge of our fate?

"Let me now inform you why we opted to inform you about the two operations and your inability to stop them before they are carried out. The reason is simple; you cannot uncover or stop them except by letting them be carried out. Furthermore, the best you could do would be to accelerate the day of carrying out the operations. In other words, if we schedule the operation to take place tomorrow, the best you could do is to make it happen today.

"The operations are ready to go, we are just waiting for orders from the commander in chief, Osama Ben Laden (may Allah preserve him). He will decide whether to strike or to hold. We swear by Allah that there are so many tricks and tactical maneuvers that will make your heads spin, by the grace of Allah. You will be brought to your knees, but not until you lose more loved ones and experience significant destruction. "Now is the time to wake up and dust off this state of complacency and ineffectiveness to save yourselves and your loved ones from catastrophes sure to come your way. Remove war mongers from positions of power and throw them in prisons, where they belong. Rid yourselves of 'the Jewish pests' that brought nothing to you but adversity and loss of lives and wealth. They have deceived you for many years, it is time now you turn the table on them and make an example out of them.

"This is the last warning you will receive from us. Consequently, if you ignore it, we regret to inform you that we will carry out devastating operations against the States of America and we will not show mercy whatsoever, you would have brought destruction to yourselves. Do not ever forget, you have rejected the truce which was offered to you by Muslims; you have supported the thieves of the white house and blessed their adventures. Therefore, you get nothing from us short of similar treatment; for only blood for blood. "May Allah facilitate a way for us to spill the blood of the occupiers and cut off the heads of the aggressors. Allah has full power and control over all of His affairs, but most mankind knows not.

I sincerely hope they don't have the capacity to do this. However, I'm afraid they do.

We have emboldened our enemy by ignoring the threats. He said Americans wouldn't have the stomach for a long fight or for the loses necessary to defeat him and we have behaved in such a way as to make it appear he was right about that.

I believe we do have the stomach, but have yet to really accept the danger. We are much too comfortable.

As with every war America has ever fought, we try to appease and ignore. We don't want to fight. But once we realize what's at stake, we will do whatever we have to do to defeat this enemy.

Trading NFL Career for Marines

Marine Corp recruit, Jeremy Staat, left the NFL for a career as a Soldier of the United States of America.

He said he wanted to so do something that matters.

In the MSM's almost constant attempts to portray the Bush Administration as a complete failure by undermining our troops and the War on Terror we rarely hear about real heros. We generally are treated to a buffet of messages that give the impression the Battle of Iraq is failing, skewed polls that imply the President is losing the support of The People, Muslims are good and we are bad, and, lest we forget the constant whinning and seditionist activities of 'progressives' like this little boy.

It's a breath of fresh air when we get the opportunity to hear from real Americans. People who love their country and understand the danger we are facing. More importantly, we get to hear from the ones who are willing to do something about it.

These stories are out there everywhere, but we don't hear them much. The story of Jeremy Staat is one of those. There have been a couple of brief interviews on Fox News (I haven't seen it anywhere else). I had to look pretty hard on the internet to find an article about it.

These aren't the kinds of stories that support the image the MSM wants to portrary. Take the story of Matt Pottinger, I bet you don't recognize his name. But you sure recognize the little boy from Colorado's name.

It's all part of the attempt by the MSM and the 'progressives' to regain power in this country by undermining the President. In my opinion, they are willing to go to any length, even the loss of our rights, the loss of this war and the death of our Soldiers, as long as it backs up their claim that they should be in power.

So it's wonderful to realize there are still boys who grow up to be real men in this country. Even with the constant pressure to submit to the values of the 'progressives' most Americans are still moral and courageous.

About Jeremy Staat ...

Giving up the fame of the football field at 29 years old, one B Company recruit looked for a glory that was more permanent than any trophy.

“The big reason was because I was just really disgusted with the amount of money entertainers get and what they pay troops overseas,” said Staat. “It didn’t seem right that we pay all those entertainers millions to catch a football and we pay our Marines pennies to a dollar to catch a bullet,” said Staat.

Determined to leave, Staat spoke with a recruiter and left as soon as possible.

“I came in two months early, like ‘Let’s get it on,’” said Staat. “I wanted to be a part of something that is going to live forever instead of getting trophies. What are trophies good for – collecting dust? Most trophies get thrown in the garage. Who knows where they go after that?”

To him, playing for a team was temporary; being part of a legend was something people wouldn’t forget.

Attitude is everything ...

“If you change the mindset of what you are doing, you can turn it into a whole new experience,” said Staat. “I looked at field training like I was going camping. They are going to pay me to learn how to train and survive in the field.”

Staat said he found it amusing that people pay for the training that Marines are paid to complete.

“They train you to keep in shape. They put you on a diet,” said Staat. “People pay to do that.”

Supporting our Troops means supporting our Country. I hate hearing, 'I support our troops, I just don't support this war.' Our Country is at war. There is a Global War on Terrorism that is edging closer and closer to our shores and we need to wake up and understand that.

Hooah for men like Jeremy Staat and Matt Pottinger. You'll hear very little about this on the news.

Jay Bennish: Flower Child or Neo-Nazi?

Once upon a time there was a little boy who grew up to be sooooooo smart he could teach geography to 15 year olds.

Pretty Boy Jay BennishHis mama and daddy were very, very proud of their baby boy. He was pretty and smart and had a nice hair-do.

His mama and daddy alway told him his was soooo much smarter than everybody else. They also told him he was a lot prettier.

He believed them.

When this little baby boy grew up he went to the Land of Oz, safely tucked away, surrounded by people who thought he was very, very smart, pretty and had a nice hair-do.

Then one day and very mean and nasty 15 year old boy did a terrible thing to our little baby boy. The mean and nasty 15 year old boy taped a mean-spirited, nasty, propaganda-ridden, indoctrinating speech our little baby boy ranted to his geography class.

Since our little baby boy, Jay, had made sure he lived in his bubble with like-minded people, he thought he was safe to indoctrinate his pupils.

The mean, nasty and obviously hate-filled 15 year old burst his bubble.

Poor Jay. He cried and cried and cried.

His mama and daddy said, 'Don't cry Jay, you are still prettier and smarter than annyboodddy else and you still have a nice hair-do.'

Sniffle, sniffle.

Jay went to a lawyer who said, 'Jay, you are smart and pretty, but you're going to have to cut off your hair because the The Scrub doesn't allow Freedom of Speech and he'll do something bad to you if you look like a flower child.'

AAHHHHH, whine, whine, Sniffle, sniffle.

So Jay shaved his head and went on T.V. and talked and talked and gave speech and speechNeo-Nazi Jay Bennish and told everybody how he was being denied Freedom of Speech.

He said The Scrub wasn't letting him express himself because The Scrub is a dictator and would do bad things to him if he talked to anybody about The Scrub.

He talked to everybody and told them The Scrub wasn't letting him talk.

Then he got his job back and swaggered and smiled and joked about how mean that little 15 year old student was to expect him to be accountable for what he said. That's just flat-out wrong, he said. 'I demand Freedom of Speech', he cried.

He was so mistreated. It was shocking.

So he went back to school and the mean, nasty little 15 year old boy has to go to another school because that school won't allow him to express how he feels about our little baby boy expressing how he feels. And it serves him right!

Little Jay now feels he's been proven right. He has shown that Freedom of Speech is at risk in this country. The Dictatorship of The Scrub Administration has .... has .... well, they did something to hurt him, I'm sure of it.

So Little Jay went back to teaching brain-washing techniques in geography class for 15 year olds at his little school in the hills infested with the off-spring of the 60's hippies.

His mama and daddy are so relieved. He won't have to get out of his bubble never ever again. He is safe in those hills. They hope the real world will never, ever come after him again.

The moral of the story is that Jay Bennish is the poster child for why The United States of America should have mandatory (compulsory) military (National) service.

The Military could have made a man out of him. They also would have given him his new haircut and not charged him a dime for it.

On Whose Side Were You When It Mattered?

Agora refers tonight to an article in Jyllands-Posten, March 9, 2006.

Feature Article

Now is when History is Written

By Lars Hedegaard, Historian and Journalist, Copenhagen

The intransigence of the continuing Muhammed-debate shows that the combatants are painfully aware of what’s at stake. Posterity will ask a simple question: “On whose side were you when it mattered?” Says today’s feature writer.

Shortly after the travelling Imams had been to the Middle-East to spread lies about the country that had received them, it was said that the case of the Muhammed-cartons would enter Danish press history.

When news of demonstrations, boycotts, flag-burnings and embassy torchings started to dominate the media, most agreed that September 30th - the day Jyllands-Posten published the famous cartoons - would enter Danish history as the start of the most serious international crisis since the occupation [ED: of Denmark by Germany]. And following the last days’ undiminished international press interest and the involvement of several of the world’s foremost organisations and players, it is probably reasonable to conclude that “The Battle of Khartoon” - as witty foreign commentators have taken to calling it - has taken on the shape of an event in world history.

After the cartoons, the world will never be as it was. The same was true of the Rushdie-affair which exploded in 1989, but the Muhammed-affair will leave yet deeper marks.

Many wish for a return to normalcy - and others are busy finding the guilty, someone to blame for how badly things went. Even a rather sleepy politician such as Bendt Bendtsen has suddenly emerged from hibernation and concluded that it would probably be wise to investigate the residence permits of certain Imams. That is so novel, especially since the Danish People’s Party has long ago suggested the same thing and were then met only by yawns from the Government coalition.

But this unheard-of activism shows exactly how massive an event we are facing. Historical events are things politicans and persons involved with culture, the press, opinion formation and organisations have to relate to. If for no other reason, then for reasons of history. If you’re seen to be sitting on the fence while the world burns about your cradle, that is seen as a statement too. So it was seen by posterity as a statement that many Danish politicians and pillars of the community during the first years of the occupation hid behind their doors and hoped for the storm to pass.

Speaking of which, the parallel to the time of the occupation becomes still more striking. The enemy has yet to have troops in-country - not many at least - but when all the fuss and the increasingly embarrasing excuses are weeded out - things the establishment excells at - the matter is very simple: Foreign powers and their local agents are trying to yoke a liberty which most of Denmark takes for granted - the right to speak freely, answerable only to the courts.

All the talk the appeasers have put up about showing restraint to sensitive religious people, seems to have run off the populace as water off a goose — if the latest polls are to be believed.

There are several reasons for this:

Firstly, many have wondered that only the most loud-mouthed of the Moslems have the right to not be mocked and ridiculed. There’s certainly no such right for any other part of the populace.

Secondly, the violent methods of the Moslem activists have made it clear to anyone with eyes to see with and the will to do so, that it is not the merits of the arguments that have made so many Danish appeasers accept limits on Freedom of Speech, no, it is threats and violence.

The calls on the public from former foreign secretaries, the have-been ex-ambassadors, the appeasing bishops, the writers and others have an eerie reminescense of King Christian X’s proclamation after the occupation of April 9, 1940 “During these for our country so troubled times, I urge all the people of Denmark to be fully correct and diginified in their behaviour, since any uncautious act or utterance may have the most severe repercussions.”

Are not these the same words we hear today - demands to not make uncautios utterances - not because they are unlawful, but because foreign lords will not tolerate them? And these demands are made at a time where the Moslem part of the population is still only somewhere between 4 and 5 percent. How much freedom will be left, I wonder, in 10, 15 or 20 years? The sheer horror of a life of serfdom has begun to spread amongst the people and this is where we see the explanation for the massive displacements of voters we have seen the last few weeks.

While most politicians of the opposition have been busy with: meetings the Prime Minister should have accepted, semantic discussions of single words of a document, the sales of Arla in the Arab world, interpretations of the real intentions of Kofi Annan and so on, the people of Denmark have asked themselves another more basic question: Who is on our side when it comes to defending Danes against bondage and serfdom to foreign powers?

It may seem primitive and old-fashioned to the relativists and globalisation-hippies who basically think that there is nothing here to defend, that it is all about opening up this country to foreign influence to the greatest extent. Nevertheless, that is what the People thinks and the opinion of the People is a bitch in a democracy.

That is why it has become so important to understand who are the sheep and who the goats. Because this is where the waters part and your actions in this situation will follow you for the rest of your life and in history books thereafter. Many of the most educated combattants know this very well.

That is why this conflict has become so intransigent. You have to win because the winner is the one who writes history. That is why the articles in Politiken are becoming still more desperate and that is why the politicians are now delivering statements so clear that they cannot be misunderstood.

History vil show not a sliver of sympathy to the half-hearted, who with reservations, buts, and woolly mouths have been evading the issue. It will ask the same questions of today’s players as it did of the British political establishment when it was faced with the challenge of Nazism in the 1930s: Who failed when it mattered? Who stood up for democracy and Freedom and who called for appeasement, dialogue and sweet understanding for the dictators?

Having lost the battle for popular support in Denmark, the defeated try to threaten the People into submission with references to the wrath of foreign lords. They say Denmark’s reputation at large has suffered irreperable damage, that we are scoffed at, that we are despised for not accomodating our society to the forces that have destroyed all hope for a better future for the Middle East and have condemned the region to permanent underdevelopment.

Some of these foreign-fixated opinion-formers are apparently truly distressed at Denmark’s choice and their public statements have the mark of desperation on them.

That is probably the case for former foreign minister Uffe Elleman-Jensen who in a column printed in the Pakistani newspaper New Times of Lahore on February 19, having referred to the “Prophet Muhammed” (capital P for the prophet), adds “peace be upon him”.

But perhaps it is the editor who wrote that without consulting Ellemann? Perhaps it is also the editor of the New Times who spoke of the “Holy Koran” (capital H for holy)?

If that is the case, the shrewd old journalist Uffe Ellemann-Jensen has shown considerable negligence to leave his manuscript in the hands of a newspaper that allows such editorial discretion.

Another interpretation could be that he is placating and kow-towing to the powerholders of a country where little girls are decapitated for not wearing a Moslem scarf.

The rest of us have to feel comforted by the fact that the Muhammed-affair has shown that Denmark has many more friends and admirers than we have ever dreamed of: Mario Vargas Llosa, Lee Harris, Mark Steyn, Christopher Hitchens, Bruce Bawer. Pavel Kohout, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, Bat Ye’or, André Glucksmann, Ibn Warraq, Salman Rushdie, Taslima Nasreen and many more.

It is appalling that there is even a question as to where the popular support lies. But there is.

If we are dependant on the MSM to tell us how the American people feel, think or believe, it would seem we were all ready to pull burkas over our heads and start practicing saying 'peace be upon him' everytime we say the word muhammad.

I heard a woman arguing on TV a while ago. I can't even tell you what she was saying, except that she was talking over everyone else and repeating herself seemingly in an effort to shut the others up. Her desperation was obvious (as in the article above). She was calling another commentator a bigot for expressing concern over the concepts of appeasement.

Listening to this woman, I couldn't help but think that if she gets what she is asking for, she won't be able to talk like that. She will be under a veil and won't be allowed to express her thoughts at all and certainly not on television.

I heard another news commentator the other day ranting about how unnecessary it is to upset the muslim world so badly and we should all just stop talking about the muhammad cartoons and the riots and let things settle back down. He had that tone of desperation in his voice as well. He actually said, 'peace be upon him' when he said muhammad. He looked and sounded uncomfortable when he said it. At first I thought he was joking. But then I realized, he was trying to show respect for the muslims and seemed to think he should say that.

Is that what we've come to? Is that where we want to go?

Are our eyes open or do we want things to get back to normal and just hope this all goes away.

I know the American people are courageous, generous, patriotic and honorable as a general rule. But most are not even aware of the danger that is insidiously creeping towards us.

When a news commentator will uncomforably say 'peace be upon him' in a show, how long will it be before that doesn't sound so strange to our ears? Will we get accustomed to hearing that? Will we gradually just accept it?

Either we open our eyes now, or we will see the danger later when it will be a much larger and more powerful force to deal with. If we wait until we can't ignore it anymore, we will pay a much higher cost in our defense.

I know on whose side I am. On whose side are you?

Sammenhold Rally in San Francisco


Via Michelle Malkin:

San Francisco Rally to Support Denmark and Free Speech

San Francisco, CA –– Worldwide protests, riots, boycotts, and threats aimed at Denmark and its citizens have taken place ever since the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten printed cartoons featuring the Islamic prophet Muhammed. In response to this unprecedented assault on the right to free speech, rallies supporting Denmark have occurred in New York, Washington, D.C., and Madrid. Others are planned for Chicago, London, Toronto, Montreal, and Sydney.

The Only Republican in San Francisco writes about the rally. The California Conservative writes about the rally here and here.

Cinnamin Sillwell organized the rally.

Unfortunately, I think most people in America have no clue about what is going on in Denmark. Unless you read the blogs and get your news through unconventional methods, you don't know there is a stand-off between Islam and the Western world over Freedom of Speech and submission to Islam.

The riots were just a passing crawl across the bottom of the TV screen if you happened to be watching one of the cable news stations. Maybe.

Hopefully, what The Gentle Cricket calls a 'small but supportive crowd' will grow as word gets out and people become more aware of the dangers and demands of Islam.

But then. Leave it to the Vikings to be the ones to draw a line in the .... snow, if you will.
