3 Hours ....... And We're Done

It only took 180 minutes for the pali death monkeys to break Lurch's peace initiative.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Following the quick collapse of the cease-fire in Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the White House not to force a truce with Palestinian militants on Israel.

Sources familiar with conversations between Netanyahu and senior U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, say the Israeli leader advised the Obama administration "not to ever second guess me again" on the matter. The officials also said Netanyahu said he should be "trusted" on the issue and about the unwillingness of Hamas to enter into and follow through on cease-fire talks.
So Israel finally tells the Obamanauts to STFU.

Why bother with these savages. Israel is making the same mistakes that were made under Joshua's and Caleb's leadership.

Drive them out of the land. Let their Muslim brothers take care of them.

Too Stupid To Breathe

Another idiot leftie who has assumed a position far, far, far above her mental capabilities. It's time the UN, this Band Of Morons, is kicked out of the US and the site reduced to Carthage-like conditions.
Navi Pillay, the chairwoman of the United Nations 'human rights council,' President Hussein Obama's favorite international body, has condemned the United States and Israel for not sharing Iron Dome with Hamas!
As the article says, it's like giving the A-bomb to the Japs and Nazis during WWII.

This Oughta Be Good

It's not as if there isn't enough news out there already to piss me off and make my heart meds work overtime. Let's add some more.

From the UK Daily Mail:
A U.S. congressman calling for the release of classified material from a report into 9/11 has warned there would be 'anger, frustration, and embarrassment' if the redacted pages were made public.

Representative Thomas Massie has joined a call for the government to declassify 28 pages redacted from the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001.
Earlier this year, the lawmaker described how he had to 'try to rearrange my understanding of history' after he read the classified pages of the joint investigation by the House and Senate intelligence committees.

[...]He said: 'I had to stop every couple of pages and just sort of absorb and try to rearrange my understanding of history for the past 13 years and the years leading up to that.

'It challenges you to rethink everything and so I think the whole country needs to go through that.

'It's going to be difficult and it could be embarrassing, but that is no reason to keep the truth from the American people.'
Well then, let's get to it. Rep. Massie is R-KY.
I have more than a passing fancy that this involves either a Clinton or the Saudis - or both.

Legacies Of World War I

The Wall Street Journal has produced a 100 Year Anniversary site commemorating World War I by collecting 100 inventions, developments and events that continue to effect our lives. It is a fascinating study that involves short, easy to understand essays for each category.. The following is one of them - "Mass Production."
A year before World War I erupted in Europe, Henry Ford saw the first of his Model Ts built using a moving assembly line.

While the assembly line concept had been in use previously, Mr. Ford’s perfection of the moving-belt technique transformed manufacturing. Soon he cut the construction time of the Model T chassis from 12-and-a-half hours to just over 90 minutes.

The production technique not only revolutionized the auto industry, it changed the way wars were fought. World War I was the first conflict to benefit from this fast and efficient means of mass production, with the outcome of the war heavily influenced by the industrial coordination of the countries in conflict.

For the Allies in particular, the production of tanks, airplanes, ambulances and munitions sped up dramatically thanks to the implementation of the assembly line.

When the U.S. entered the war, it brought with it much-needed manpower and the means of mass production. The U.S. government enlisted auto manufacturers to help crank out airplanes and engines, spearheading the production of the groundbreaking 12-cylinder Liberty aviation engine.

Assembly lines increased production in France too. The man sometimes referred to as the “French Henry Ford,” André-Gustave Citroën, left his position at the front as an artillery officer to open an assembly-line based munitions factory in Paris.

Drawing on lessons gleaned from an earlier fact-finding trip to U.S. auto plants, Mr. Citroën’s factory was eventually able to crank out tens of thousands of shells a day at the hands of its mostly female staff. France’s Renault employed assembly lines to accelerate the roll out of trucks and tanks.

The Great War is known by some as the war of production.
And here's another surprise, the legacy of Joseph Pilates:
Pilates a legacy of World War I? That’s a bit of a stretch, surely.

Well no. Turns out this form of fitness beloved by celebrities and mainstream gym-goers alike was conceived by a German boxer and bodybuilder while he was interned in Britain as an enemy alien during the war.

[...]In 1912, Pilates left Germany for Britain, where he worked as a circus performer and boxer. At the outbreak of World War I he was picked up by the British authorities and interned at a camp at Knockaloe Moar on the Isle of Man. It was while he was locked up that he developed his system of mind and body strengthening through physical exercise–and “Contrology,” as Pilates termed his method, was born.

Conditions in the camps were poor, and he encouraged his fellow inmates to exercise as a means of staying healthy. Some of the internees were bed-bound, so Pilates took springs and straps from the beds and attached them to the head and footboards, creating an early type of resistance-training machine. These were forerunners of the spring-based equipment for which the Pilates method is known today.

Penny Jones, a board member of the not-for-profit Pilates Foundation, based in Britain, said: “The Cadillac (one of the pieces of equipment he designed) looks like a hospital bed with springs attached, and that's what it originally was.

Our Job Is More Than Special Tactics and Weapons

From "Call The Cops"
Pick up any police magazine, go to any police web page, the predominate images will be SWAT teams. The majority of stories will be about tactical readiness or will be breakdowns of recent shooting events. This so called “Tactical Porn” is bringing an end to police professionalism and heralding in police militarization.
When I joined the police department in 1974 our training emphasis was on service and community interaction. This was a result of the race riots in the late sixties - no one wanted a repeat. So as recruits and young field officers we were exposed to doctrines that sought to build trust with the neighborhoods we patrolled. Of course firearms and officer safety training was still a big part of our curricula, but we were encouraged to use our heads rather than our fists.
Years ago police publications were filled with articles about bike patrol, communication skills, and this new fad thing called the Internet. Images if Guns and SWAT teams were present but not to the level they are today. 
In the last decade coverage of topics out side of firearms, physical defense and SWAT have been drastically reduced. According to one magazine editor it is all about sales.
Our Chief of Police at the time, Tom Sardino, had used a grant to form the Crime Control Team, which received national attention. I was a part of this team which patrolled high crime areas until the concept was abandoned in February of 1979 due to departmental cuts in manpower.

We would field at least two or three cars within each territory; the least senior man was the service car who handled the daily grind, then there were the crime cars that basically were uniformed detectives who would also perform community relations tasks when they had the time. They were encouraged to get out of the patrol car and walk. Except for homicides and bank robberies, we did not forward our cases to the investigators in the Criminal Investigation Division as the regular patrol units did.

This was not a touchy-feely exercise. I worked in shitholes. But all that has changed. "Boutique Policing" is a politician's response to public pressure to respond to problems - creating small dedicated units which fragment the chain of command and rob the major patrol units of desperately needed manpower.

The emphasis on weapons and tactics is also disturbing. I see this in today's young cops, in their uniforms and equipment and their attitudes. And I am not the only one who is concerned.
“Look community policing is cool. I like that concept. But face it sex sells and SWAT teams are sexy as hell. I put a photo of a SWAT team on the cover and people open the magazine to read it. I put two cops having coffee with citizens on the cover and it never gets opened. I make money selling ad space, ad space only sells if people have a reason to open the magazine.” 
CallTheCops talked to multiple police administrators who agree that tactical porn is corrupting officers. Multiple administrators told us that young cops today don’t want to problem solve, they just want to run-n-gun. None were willing to go on record as they either write or aspire to write, for policing publications and fear burning bridges.
But today's ghettos are very different. The use of firearms to settle disputes has rocketed. Organized gangs present a very attractive alternative to a young teen living in a dysfunctional family. The sound of gunshots reverberates through our cities and minorities will not cooperate with law enforcement to stop the violence. It has become part of the popular culture.

One the other hand, do officers today face less of a physical threat nowadays than we did in the 1970's when the numbers of police officers killed in the line of duty were at their highest levels? Or has the phenomenal advances in medical science served to reduce these numbers? From the Officer Down Memorial Page:

For the decade of the 1970's, 2340 officers lost their lives, 1246 (53%) by gunfire.
For the decade of the 1980's, 1923 officers lost their lives, 816 (42%) by gunfire.
For the decade of the 1990's, 1663 officers lost their lives, 665 (40%) by gunfire.
For the decade of the 2000's, 1709 officers lost their lives, 535 (31%) by gunfire.
Thus far since 2010, 651 officers have lost their lives, 232 (36%) by gunfire.

The circumstances under which an officer can lose his life are many. Here are some of the ways:
9/11 related illness:
Aircraft accident:
Animal related:
Automobile accident:
Boating accident:
Duty related illness:
Gunfire (Accidental):
Heart attack:
Motorcycle accident:
Struck by vehicle:
Terrorist attack:
Training accident:
Vehicle pursuit:
Vehicular assault:

Many citizens are concerned by the types of military vehicles now being used by police departments all over the country. My hope is that these vehicles will meet the same end as the flood of used military equipment in the late 60's under the 1965 Law Enforcement Assistance Administration. And that end was this - they quietly rusted away in a police garage, hardly ever used except in parades. And this equipment is not cheap to maintain. We had an old APC that we stored in the State Armory, we finally got rid of it while we could still drive it away. I never saw it used.
Off the record one Police Captain said “Whenever I get an announcement about training for bike patrol, CSI skills, or leadership development I ask who wants to go. All I get is people looking at me like I am speaking an alien language. But the second an announcement for SWAT training comes out everyone comes to my office asking to be allowed to go.”
Eh - kids nowadays. Testosterone Oriented Policing.
The issue is even seeping into Criminal Justice degree programs. In December of 2013 the first college announced a degree program in SWAT Science. Now six months later a dozen other colleges are gearing up similar programs.
I tell the young kids to get a degree in anything other than police science or public safety. The police academy will teach you what the department wants you to know about being a cop. Get a degree in something that will set you apart from the crowd or provide a fall back in case you decide that law enforcement is not your cup of tea. Get a degree in forensic accounting, computer science, whatever...

Gaza War Pr0n

Amazing shot of what appears to be a GBU precision munition right before detonation.  Story here.

Can you hear me now? The video is here.

Mohammed Would Be Proud

These people are beyond insane.
New details have emerged about the booby-trapped clinic explosion that killed three IDF Maglan unit soldiers in Gaza earlier this week - Sergeant First Class Matan Gottlieb, 21, from Rishon LeZion; Sergeant First Class Omar Chai, 21, from Savion; and Sergeant First Class Guy Algranati, 20, of Tel Aviv, hy"d.

Over eighty kilograms of explosives were built into the UN-funded hospital's walls themselves, it was cleared for publication Thursday - revealing that the clinic itself was built to mask, and perform, potential acts of terror on the IDF.

Moreover, the clinic was built over tens of terror tunnels, according to the report.

The UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) has yet to respond to the revelations, and has still not responded to the deaths of the Israeli soldiers Wednesday.
That's 175 pounds of explosives.
Built into a hospital.
Right in the walls.
Where their own children are being treated.
With some jihadist nut job holding the trigger.
Hiding in a ferret bunker underneath the hospital.

The New Mass Grave Sites Are Muslim

I thought for a long while that the Nazis and the Muslims were the same in their hatred of the Jews and anyone who was different.
I was wrong.
While the Nazis approached the “Jewish Problem” with a cold, ruthless efficiency, these fanatic ISIL bastards in the Near East like what they do. It suits them, it engages them. Like bloody insane monkeys they rejoice in slaughter and attribute it as righteous acts of worship directed towards an equally malicious divinity.

This is truly demonic in nature. Listen to part of a monologue delivered by an imam to a crowd of bloody minded Mohammedans:
So let the world know that we are living today in a new era. Whoever was heedless must now be alert. Whoever was sleeping must now awaken. Whoever was shocked and amazed must comprehend. The Muslims today have a loud, thundering voice and possess heavy boots.They have a statement that will cause the world to hear and understand the meaning of terrorism and boots that will trample the idol of nationalism and destroy the idol of democracy and uncover its falseness. 
So listen O ummah of Islam, listen and comprehend. Stand up and rise for the time has come for you to free yourself from the shackles of weakness and stand in the face of tyranny against the treacherous rulers, the agents of the crusaders and the atheists and the guards of the Jews.
The sites for the video are here and here. You Tube has taken this video down several times and I was not able to download it. The slaughter/murder begins at about the 29 minute mark (you'll enjoy the drive by shooting in the name of Allah) and continues throughout.

These people will not stop until death smacks them in the face. So be it.

Five MMA fighters visited the US Marine Corps' Martial Arts Program (MCMAP). The MCMAP
... is a combat system developed by the United States Marine Corps to combine existing and new hand-to-hand and close quarters combat (CQC) techniques with morale and team-building functions and instruction in the Warrior Ethos. The program, which began in 2001, trains Marines (and U.S. Navy personnel attached to Marine units) in unarmed combat, edged weapons, weapons of opportunity, and rifle and bayonet techniques. It also stresses mental and character development, including the responsible use of force, leadership, and teamwork.
The following three video clips are each about six minutes long and provide a glimpse of the strenuous training our Marines receive through the eyes of professional martial arts fighters.

Here, here, and here.

It's Great To Hate The USA

Hatin' on 'Murica is a popular pastime.  How much American taxpayers largesse is disappearing into these countries (this year unless otherwise noted)?

The two charts differ in that the second lists the percentage of the population that considers the US an enemy while the first gives favorable and unfavorable percentages.

Egypt: $1.5 billion
Jordan: $671 million - with loan guarantees, over $1 billion
Turkey: $4.8 million (requested for 2015)
Palestine: $440 million
Pakistan: $1.2 million
Lebanon: $166 million - over $1 billion since 2006
Tunisia: $66 million (requested for 2015)

Free Speech For Me But Not For Thee

 A newspaper editor is fired because he made a post on his personal blog that discredited the abomination known as the Queen James bible. The QJ is an attempt to blot out biblical prohibitions against homosexuality.

What do you think would happen if the editor was fired because he was a homosexual?
DES MOINES, Iowa – A newspaper editor who was fired earlier this year for opining on his personal blog that the Queen James Bible is an attempt by homosexuals “to make their sinful nature ‘right with God’” has filed a complaint with the federal government. 
As previously reported, Bob Eschliman has worked as the editor of the Newton Daily News since 2012, and has served as the publisher of the Clarinda Herald-Journal. But he found himself out of a job this past May when he spoke his mind about the Queen James Bible on his personal blog. 
“It’s pretty easy to brush off a nonsensical contrived version of the Bible, but that’s not the deceivers’ end goal,” Eschliman wrote. “No, they want all Christendom to abandon their faith. They do that by ‘proselytizing’ to church leaders to change their view on homosexuality.” 
“[Jesus] said there would be deceivers. He said those deceivers would cause Christians who remain true to His teachings to become reviled. He said false prophets would follow to deceive even more, and that lawlessness will abound,” he continued. “If you ask me, it sounds like the Gaystapo is well on its way. We must fight back against the enemy.”
Bob's Facebook page is here.  Drop him a word of encouragement.

Scripture is clear on God's view of homosexual practices. No amount of self-serving rewrites will change that.

Genesis 19:4-5:
"Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them." 
Leviticus 20:13:"If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination."

Leviticus 18:22-24:"You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion. ‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you."

Romans 1:26-27:"For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due."
1 Timothy 1:9-11:
"This means understanding that the law is laid down not for the innocent but for the lawless and disobedient, for the godless and sinful, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their father or mother, for murderers, fornicators, sodomites, slave-traders, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to the sound teaching that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.

Jude 7:
"As Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."


Cats are jerks.
