Controversial Muslim cleric caught being smuggled into U.S. over Mexico border

Said Jaziri, who called for the death of a Danish cartoonist that drew pictures of the prophet Mohammed, was being smuggled into California when he was arrested, along with his driver Kenneth Robert Lawler.

If the Muzzies hate the Great Satan so much how come they keep wanting to sneak in?

Vice President Joe Biden told Jim Lehrer Thursday afternoon that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, the target of anti-government demonstrations in Cairo, is someone he knows "fairly well" and does not consider to be a dictator.

After all, everyone knows Evil Dick Cheney was a dictator and Mubarak is nothing like him. Meanwhile, in the PC run amok file:

The Obama Administration has been pushing for a US Internet Kill Switch just like the one deployed in Egypt. Ironic, since the Internet's roots were ARPANET, designed to keep computers at universities and Defense installations linked together even in the event of a communist nuclear attack. But nothing can protect it from the communists within.

A last-minute decision to serve fried chicken and waffles at a campus dining hall in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. was a regrettable choice and lacked sensitivity, UC Irvine officials acknowledged Wednesday.

Because, you know, it is a stereotype that black people like chicken. At least they didn't serve chitterlings and watermelons.

Hawaii to Balance Budget by Selling Obama Birth Certificates

The state would charge $100 for a copy of President Obama’s birth records under a bill introduced in the Legislature by five Democrats. It would change a privacy law barring the release of birth records unless the person seeking them has a tangible interest. The bill has not been scheduled for a public hearing, and cannot move forward unless that happens. But the idea behind it is to end skepticism over Mr. Obama’s birthplace while raising a little money for a government.

The hula-hoop fad came and went, and at least when the excitement faded we were able to stick our hula-hoops in the garage, out of sight, out of mind. But with Obama, no, we gotta keep on hula-hoopin' for two more years. I also attribute part of the blame to the RNC for giving us Grampy McSame, and Palin for letting Katie Couric make her look stupid. If perky little Katie could do it, she wouldn't stand a chance against Putin. The best candidate out there for 2012 is Romney, but the GOP will self-destruct again, because the Evangelical base will never abide a "cultist Mormon" for President. Throw in the likely possiblity that the Great Recession will be over, and you're looking at another four years of The Messiah.


I think the result of this test case (a modern nation hitting the Internet Kill Switch) will backfire. Unable to surf to Facebook and Twitter, the people will flood the streets, and that’s precisely what Hosni does NOT want.

And by the way, it is the Obama Administration pushing for a US Internet Kill Switch. Ironic, since the Internet’s roots were ARPANET, designed to keep computers at Universities and Defense installations linked together even in the event of a communist nuclear attack. But nothing can protect it from the communists within.

Vice President Joe Biden told Jim Lehrer Thursday afternoon that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, the target of anti-government demonstrations in Cairo, is someone he knows “fairly well” and does not consider to be a dictator.

After all, everyone knows Evil Dick Cheney was a dictator and Mubarak is nothing like him.

President Obama, please return your Nobel Peace Prize. Your support for the corrupt and repressive Mubarak regime shows you don’t deserve it.
