You can also hear "Terrorist Idol," as done on the Morning Show on KSFO.
"Heat exceeded 2,750 degrees, softening and buckling steel beams and melting bolts, California Department of Transportation Director Will Kempton said"
Flash to Rosie O'Donnell and 9-11 conspiracy freaks: Heat melts metal, causing collapse.

This is precisely the kind of limp-wristed sissy foreign policy Democrats and the Clinton Administration used during the1990's that caused 9/11 to happen. "We can't go after bin Laden and his terrorists, what would the rest of the world think?"
When it comes to stopping the spread of Islamofasicst terror and preventing more 9/11's, who really gives a damn what the rest of the world thinks.
The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress "Aluminum Overcast" arrived in Hayward yesterday and will be at the airport until tomorrow. The plane is owned by the Experimental Aircraft Association and tours the nation every year. For around $425, you can take a 30-minute ride aboard the B-17 and get a feel of what it must have been like flying a bombing mission over Nazi Germany. If you don't have the money for the flight, you can take a ground tour for $6 per person or $10 per family.
After tomorrow, "Aluminum Overcast" will be in Concord from May 1-2 and Napa from May 8-9. Here's a taste of what a flight in the plane is like, from YouTube.
Another B-17, the Commemorative Air Force's "Sentimental Journey" is in Half Moon Bay tomorrow also giving 30 minute flights to the public for around $425.
Only six B-17s are actively flying today out of almost 17,000 produced during the World War II years. Seeing these planes is a reminder of another generation that went to war and the tools that help win that war. If you have the chance to fly or even tour either plane on the ground, I highly recommend it. In 1990, I had the chance to fly aboard the CAF's other B-17, "Texas Raiders" (currently under major maintenance) when I lived in Harlingen, TX and attended their World War II Air Power Demonstrations almost every year before they moved to Midland, TX. It is an airplane ride like no other as well as a once in a lifetime experience you will never forget.

This comes after an ICE raid last Friday in Oakland in which 13 illegals were arrested.
Using the "fear and unrest" rhetoric used by other Bay Area mayors, Dellums said "We cannot allow our citizens to be harassed, abused and intimidated by anyone." He also called illegal immigration the civil rights issue of this generation.
The City plans to add illegal aliens from any country to a 1986 resolution declaring Oakland as a "City of Refuge." The original decree applied to refugees from South Africa, Haiti, El Salvador and Nicaragua.
First it was San Rafael Mayor Al Boro who assured illegal immigrants that his city "will not enforce immigration law." Last Sunday, San Francisco Mayor Gavin "Screw The Will of California Voters, Let's Have Gay Weddings" Newsom reaffirmed San Francisco's status as a sanctuary city. Now Dellums follows their lead.
It's way past time the federal government ends this anarchy by cutting off funds to any city who refuses to aid in the enforcement of immigration law.
According to the Marin IJ, the suit alleges Nancy Alcantar, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) San Francisco field office director, and her officers "violated the boy's constitutional rights."
However, as ICE officials stated earlier, the boy was not arrested. He was taken with the agents because ICE agents arrested his father, an illegal alien from Guatemala who had been ordered deported in 2000. The ACLU claims there was no search warrant. ICE officials said all arrests require warrants.
Now, in addition to rogue mayors and city officials who refuse to enforce immigration law, radical groups like the ACLU will twist the Constitution to defend terrorists and people who've broken immigration law. That's because the ACLU has long been supporters of open borders. A paper in the D.C. office of the ACLU entitled "Justice for Aliens" states that limits on immigration are attributed to "hostility, motivated by nativism, racism and red‑scare,” according to this FrontPage Magazine article.
Open borders, one more manner in which the ACLU is out to destroy America.
Patrick Leahy, kicked off the Senate Intelligence Committee in the late 1980's for leaking classified information, called the detention of these terrorists "unconstitutional. It's un-American."
Carl Levin, another terrorist sympathizer who is chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said "America at its best is a beacon for human rights and human liberty, and that's how we like to see ourselves. But much of the world sees us in a very different way when we fail to live up to the standards we profess."
But the Constitution, as Sen. Jeff Sessions pointed out, does not confer rights on combatants seized on a battlefield.
Just like their vote against the troops today, the Democrats are showing America they are more concerned with the well being of terrorists, instead of protecting the security of American citizens.

If you listened to "The Great One," Mark Levin's radio show today, a man from Irving TX named Robert Vandertulip called the show to tell how the office of Barak Hussein Obama hung up on him, because he wasn't from Illinois.
This happened AFTER Mr. Vandertulip told this aide in Obama's office that his son, Josiah, was killed in Iraq in October 2004.
Here's a link, plus audio, courtesy of our friend John in Dublin from Mark Levin Fan.
Now I'd like to say this to that empty suit Obama. You owe Mr. Vandertulip and his family an engraved apology, without any of your commentary about the war and whoever hung up on him should be looking for a new job. You want to be President of the United States and yet your office hangs up on this man? How dare you ignore these families because they're angry at how you and your Democrat party are stabbing the troops in the back.
This act of treason comes as Reuters reports that none other than Osama bin Laden is overseeing operations (read this libs) in Iraq as well as Afghanistan. Just the other day, an al-Queda based group took responsibility for killing 9 soldiers from the 82nd Airborne and wounding 20.
As far as I'm concerned, the blood of those soldiers is on the hands of Harry "the war is lost" Reid, Nancy Bella-Pelosi, Schmuck Schumer and the rest of the Democrat party. Their rhetoric inspired the terrorists in Iraq to plant these bombs so America will run away, like Beirut and Somalia. These Democrats want to prove bin Laden right, that America cannot take casualties and will retreat when the going gets tough. Reid, Pelosi et al now want to surrender Iraq to bin Laden, just so they can win more power in 2008.
That is the height of treason and utmost disrespect to the families of the fallen, who are seeing the sacrifices of their children being used by Democrats for political gain. They're willing to destroy this nation just to win more power.
If that's too extreme and offends you liberals, I really don't give a damn. It's the truth and I don't apologize for any of it. The Democrats are not interested in winning the War on Terror. They won't even use that term anymore. Instead Democrats in Congress are more focused on bringing down the Bush Administration instead of Bin Laden and Islamofacism.
Just look at them. The kooky granola cruncher Dennis Kucinich (aka Alfred E. Newman) has introduced a bill to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney. Condolezza Rice has been subpoenaed by a House committee about the whole Niger yellowcake issue and the Pat Tillman issue was brought up again by Henry Waxman, who has the most obnoxious nostrils on Planet Earth. Yes, the same Henry Waxman who wrote a letter to the U.S. ambassador in Jordan for the transfer of $600,000 in aid from Code Pinko & Global Exchange to the residents of terrorist hotbed Fallujah, Iraq in 2004.
And they have the nerve to call themselves "patriotic." Their actions are anything but patriotic.
And there's the Stalinist media right behind them, regurgitating all the Democrats' treason to the American public disguised as unbiased journalism. They'll focus on Cindy Sheehan, Kevin Tillman and others whose grief can be manipulated by these Democrat traitors for political gain. Yet, the media and these politicians ignore Gold Star Parents like Joe & Jan Johnson, Debra Bastian or John Wroblewski, Gregg Garvey and their families. Why? Because these families support the mission in spite of suffering the greatest loss one could imagine.
It's way past time to fight the political war here in America, but it must be done. President Bush and the Republicans need to go on a major offensive against these Democrats and it must start now. By embracing defeat in Iraq and hindering the prosecution of War on Terror with their divisive tactics, the Democrats have become the biggest threat to this nation's security.

Lindh accepted a 20 year prison sentence as a result of a 2002 plea deal. Recently, the traitor's enabling and permissive father, Frank, has taken advantage of the public's amnesia about 9/11, as well as the divisive political atmosphere, to ask for clemency for "his boy."
"He was a victim of a hysterical atmosphere post-9/11. Much like the country has reassessed the premises for the Iraq war, it should re-examine the premises for this sentence." the elder Lindh said in Liptak's column.
Re-examine the premises for the traitor's jail sentence? That quote just drips with the typical arrogance of a Marin County liberal like Lindh.
Liptak's one sided "analysis" also quoted a former Justice Department ethics lawyer, Jesselyn Radack, who left the Department in 2002 "over its conduct in the Lindh case."
"One guy is sitting in jail for 20 years. The other guy is scot-free. And the third will serve nine months." she said.
If you remember, Radack, along with Lynn Woolsey, Sean Penn and Jihad Jane Fonda, spoke this past January at an anti-American rally held by the Communist front group United for Peace & Justice. When she said she had worked on Lindh's case, applause could be heard from the audience.
Frank Lindh, in his efforts to gain clemency for his boy, is showing the typical selfishness typical of a Marin County liberal. These are same 1960's values he instilled in Jihad Johnny, "whatever feels good, do it!" He has no shame to realize that as he petitions for his son's freedom, the father of Johnny Michael Spann will never see his son again.
The younger Spann interviewed John Walker Lindh, moments before being killed after an uprising at Mazar-e Sharif prison. Lindh did not answer Spann's questions, nor attempt to warn him of the planned rebellion or come to his aid. Lindh stood by while Spann, a fellow countryman, was murdered.
The senior Spann was not questioned for the Times column, but told the AP earlier this month that Lindh should not be given clemency and his case should not be compared to Australian David Hicks.
"(Hicks) was captured in a completely different situation," Spann said. "He was not one of the prisoners that killed Mike Spann."
The New York Times also did not interview Robert Pelton, the CNN reporter who interviewed Lindh after capture. Pelton said of Lindh.
"...in my opinion, Lindh was a terrorist, a member of what we call al-Qaeda and a man who chose to stay with killers even though he was afforded numerous opportunities to separate himself from his murderous associates. ...Frank Lindh cannot be blamed for the emotions behind his need to reinvent history or doing what he can to get his son out of jail. But he is lying. His son did not “love America”, he fought for bin Laden against us, his son is not “honest”, he lied to his parents and others. His son is not a “decent” young man; he trained to be a murderer. His son went to kill strangers in a stranger land. A spiritual quest? What part of grenades and AK 47’s can be described as spiritual? What part of patriotism is eating bin Laden’s food, listening to Usama’s droning hate-filled speeches against America and sitting obediently within strangling distance of our greatest single enemy? To think that the American public is that stupid is an insult."
That's exactly what Lindh and his Leftist attorney James Brosnahan are banking on, that the American public has forgotten Johnny Lindh‘s treason. I have news for Frank Lindh. Some of us, even in Marin County, won't be played for fools and will never forget. If you ask me, Johnny Jihad should have been given a military field trial and executed by firing squad. He did not deserve a 20-year prison sentence subsidized by the American taxpayer.
"You know how liberals are always telling us to stay out of their bedrooms? Well, we should start telling them, 'Stay out of our bathrooms!' Talk about a Nanny State..."

"Former soldiers Jeremiah Pauley, 31, and brother-in-law Greg Scott, 27, both recently returned from Iraq, were pleasantly surprised with a public welcome punctuated by an impromptu front-yard concert by the Sinaloa Middle School band at the home of their grandmother, Liz Scott.
The 30-student-strong marching band was joined by more than a dozen Cub Scouts from Troop 42 for a one-block parade from the nearby school to join an emotional gathering of neighbors, school officials and extended family members to honor the recently released soldiers."
What is amazing is that the IJ didn't find a way to insert their anti-war bias into the article.
Mort May, a World War II veteran who attended the ceremony, said it best, "This is a local thing, and I think it's really important. "The guys coming back do appreciate recognition. I think we should do more of that."

"No you know what, the troops are killing them (Iraqi citizens). The troops are the terrorists."
This is the same group supported by Lynn Woolsey, who spoke at their rally in Washington D.C. last January. Woolsey will be honored by Code Pinko in Petaluma at the Annual Bread & Butter Parade next Saturday. According to Bay Area Code Pinko, they will "march in honor of Lynn Woolsey, whom we hope will be joining us. Gather in your hottest pink at Walnut Park!"
And they claim to "support the troops."

"Dirty" Harry Reid of Nevada says the War in Iraq is lost. He does not base that on any military assertion or correspondence from the generals or the troops on the ground there. He just comes out and states the war is lost.
Why? Politics pure and simple. Reid says, "We're going to pick up Senate seats as a result of this war."
I never imagined, nearly six years after 9/11, one political party would use the blood of our fallen soldiers for their own partisan political gain. Especially after they looked the nation in the eye that day and promised unity in the defense of our homeland from the Islamofascist enemy. I am even more disappointed that Senate Republicans are not pounding the podium in outrage and demanding censure for Reid or his removal from the Senate.
I've long stated that the Democrat party is no longer a Party of Reason with leaders like FDR, JFK or Harry Truman. Those three Democrats were patriots who led America from the dark days after Pearl Harbor to Victory over the Axis Powers, vowing that America would "pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty." Today, the Democrat party has become a Party of Treason led by Reid and Nancy "Queen of Mean" Bella-Pelosi who are defined by two words--cut and run.
I've heard some state today that Harry Reid should resign. Unfortunately, it wouldn't happen, but I believe President Bush should make an example of Reid and have him arrested as a domestic enemy of the United States. Abraham Lincoln set this precedent with Ohio Democrat Clement Vallandigham, who was tried by military tribunal for "uttering disloyal sentiments" as well as "attempting to hinder the prosecution of the war." Harry Reid is essentially doing the same thing, emboldening the enemy to kill more Americans and jeopardizing our national security so his Party of Treason can win more Senate seats.
If Bush and the Republicans cannot remove Reid, then it is up to the citizens of Nevada to vote this treasonous crooked jerk out of office next year.
If Harry Reid's stabbing our troops in the back wasn't enough, we all had the misfortune of hearing liberal actor Alec Baldwin's psychotic rant to his 11 year old daughter, Ireland. "You are a rude, thoughtless little pig"and "You don't have the brains or the decency as a human being," the big compassionate lib Baldwin told his daughter, ending by telling her "I'm gonna straighten your ass out when I see you, do you understand me?"
And he had the nerve last year to call Dick Cheney a terrorist? Well who's doing the terrorising here, Alec?
As a father, there is no way in hell I would ever talk to my child the way this insane idiot did. Abusive words can be as brutal as physical abuse. Many of us have seen children carry the damage from such words from parents into adulthood. Some of these children may grow up fearful of authority, use alcohol, drugs, etc; get in destructive relationships (romantic and platonic) and suffer from depression or other neuroses. All because one or both parents called their children words like "pig" and implied they had "no brains" or "no decency."
Only cowards pick on and abuse young children and women. Alec Baldwin is not a man, nor a human being. He is a lowlife coward who wouldn't dare pick on someone his own size, because that's when he'd get a much deserved can of whoop-ass opened on his pathetic hyde.

Heartfelt prayers and well wishes to the victims and their families today, as well as the entire Virginia Tech community.
For a local perspective, go to Blognetnews.com/Virginia.
Some at VTech are critical of the press coverage of today's tragedy. Riehl World View asks, "Is The Media Making It Worse?"
Before today, the worst mass shooting on a campus happened on August 1, 1966 at the University of Texas in Austin. On that day, Charles Whitman killed 13 and wounded 31. He had already murdered his mother and wife earlier that morning as they slept.
News 8 Austin has footage and recollections from that day, as last year was the 40th anniversary of the Tower shootings. The observation deck was reopened in the late 1990's; it had been closed in the early 1970's due to suicide jumpers. I moved from Austin a couple of years before the deck was reopened, but went up one day to one of the highest floors you could access for views as well as the stairway leading to the observation deck. It was eerie standing there, as that was the spot where Whitman's first victims at the Tower were killed.

Events included a rally in San Rafael on the corner of Second & Lindaro streets and an event with several public officials in Fairfax. Playing on the fears of rising water from the Bay, some wore masks and snorkels.
"In those days (1970's), I heard about how the earth would have exceeded its carrying capacity by 1987, and how all these things would be messed up and polluted. I finally realized that I am living through all those things I worried about. The chickens have come home to roost," Tamra Peters, identified as an "environmentalist," told the Marin IJ. A Google search of Peters showed her as an active member of several liberal organizations, including the Marin Democrat Party, Marin Conservation League and The Ruth Group, where in August 2005, she wrote "a masterful summary of Rebecca Solnit's inspiring talk that followed our candlelight vigil for Cindy Sheehan on Wednesday."
"We could go fossil-free as a nation by 2033," said County Supervisor Charles "ICE Agents Are Nazis" McGlashan at the Fairfax event. "The scary thing is, our scientists are now saying that's the level of commitment we're going to have to make if we want to do something about climate change. We need to adopt a World War II-level mentality against this threat and redouble our energies." Where does Chuck get his data to back up this claim? Then again, where is his apology for the Nazi slur towards those who want border enforcement?
Other speakers included Assemblyman Jared Huffman, State Senator Carole Migden and Supervisor Hal Brown. All of these so-called "elected officials" have lined up in the last month to denounce federal immigration authorities and stood by those who've broken immigration law in Marin County.
There was also a play, "Save Some for Me" to show children how to fight so-called global warming. Playing on the "polar bears are dying" fears of children, the IJ said the skit showed them how they "could help Mother Nature rescue a hapless polar bear from the earth-warming, evil Mr. Carbon."
All this effort to control the Earth's climate, which humans have no control over. The difference is that these vain liberals in Marin think they are the center of the universe. Is there any comprehension among them that humans cannot possibly destroy something they did not create?
If these people want to rally against something, how about rallying against terrorism? However, I believe that this global warming hysteria is an attempt by liberals to distract the public's attention from the War on Terrorism.
Here's some facts for the "sky is falling" crowd. Islamic terrorism has killed more people than global warming. Global Warming did not destroy the World Trade Center, Islamic Terrorists did. The threat is real and getting worse as this slide show "Wake Up America! Before It's Too Late" (hat tip, Dad) shows.
Then again, here's another inconvenient fact lost on these Chicken Littles. More people have died in Ted Kennedy's Oldsmobile than from so-called global warming.

Free Speech is now on target in America, and now the cross hairs is turning from Don Imus to conservative talk radio or anyone who dares voice independent thought from the Liberal thought. A story by Brad Kava in today's San Jose Mercury News notes this threat (Group that exposed Imus angers conservatives).
"Maybe more will be done now that people see that, if they speak out and take action, they will get results," said Jamison Foser, 31, a former Democrat(ic) Party worker who organized Media Matters with the better-known founder David Crock."
For more on Media Matters, there is a great post on the blog Sweetness and Light exposing Crock's devious plan to silence conservative speech from the airwaves. Those of us in the Bay Area saw this slick operator in action earlier this year, as he, along with the stalker Mikey Stark and some clown by the name of "Spocko" went after KSFO hosts Melanie Morgan, Lee Rogers, Officer Vic and Brian Sussman. Crock, Spocko and Stark, the Three Stooges of Censorship, attempted to silence conservative speech in the Bay Area by using altered recordings of copyrighted material from KSFO to chase away the station's advertising.
Crock and Media Matters is largely funded by the Daddy Warbucks of the Left, George $oro$, a lowlife who admitted on 60 Minutes he felt no guilt in helping the Nazis confiscate property from Jews who were shipped to death camps. The irony here is that Soros is Jewish. Clintonista John Podesta also helped Media Matters secure office space. Other influential Democrats are involved in Media Matters, notes the great website Discover the Networks:
"...Media Matters received over $2 million in seed donations from a roster of affluent donors including Leo Hindery Jr., a former cable magnate; Susie Tompkins Buell, a co-founder of the fashion company Esprit and a close ally of Senator Hillary Clinton; James Hormel, a San Francisco philanthropist who nearly served as ambassador to Luxembourg during the Clinton administration; Bren Simon, a Democratic activist and the wife of shopping-mall developer Mel Simon..."To make matters worse, Crock's group is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, meaning it is tax exempt. So that means you and I, the American taxpayer, are paying for this attempt by the Democrat Party to silence conservative speech.
Don Imus is not a conservative. He supported Kerry. I noted in an earlier post how he and liberal writer Mike Barnicle fantasized about hanging Vice President Cheney and other members of the Bush Administration. Instead, David Crock gets his knickers in a knot when "The Great One" Mark Levin pokes fun (deservedly so) at the treasonous Nancy Bella-Pelosi or when Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck go after Rosie O'Lardass. Yet liberal hate speech doesn't show up on Media Matters' radar, as Crock showed no outrage when Rosie the 9/11 Truther slurred Asians on ABC's The View or when Air America's Randi Rhodes twice implied assassinating President Bush. Instead, Crock promoted Randi Rhodes quoting Media Matters on Larry King's show. The fact that Air America was funded by money taken from a Bronx youth group didn't make Crock's list of outrages. Neither did MSNBC's worst host ever, Keith Olbermann or Bill Maher.
Selective Liberal outrage, funded by our tax dollars! And liberals claim to be such great champions of "dissent" and "free speech."

Thirteen Counts of Child Porn Against Lagunitas School Superinendent. No Outrage From Locals, Says Board President
According to the Marin IJ article, Lee is also charged with a misdemeanor count of battery on a cohabitant. He could face three years in prison for the first felony child pornography count and three years and eight months for each additional count, if convicted. The battery charge would amount to one year in county jail. Lee is on unpaid leave from his post.
Denise Santa Cruz-Bohman, school board president, said some parents had contacted the school to find out more information, but told the IJ:
"Nobody is outraged, but they're shocked."
All this coming from the same school district which attempted to pass an impeachment resolution against President Bush last fall. The resolution failed. Perhaps that's a message to "act locally" instead of "globally."

The racist literature included anti-black, anti-Jewish messages and were produced by White Aryan Resistance, a hate group founded by Tom Metzger, a KKK member.
Zombie notes one of the papers found stated "JOIN the UNITED STATES ARMY and FIGHT for ISRAEL." It also had a drawing of a "stereotypical big-nosed Jew giving orders to an American soldier." Zombie then showed through various photos how this same message has been stated by the anti-war Left at rallies held here in the Bay Area.
On a similar note, I recall how Cindy Sheehan was hailed by David Duke and other white supremacist kooks when she came to national prominence protesting outside President Bush's ranch in 2005. The reason? St. Cindy made remarks such as, "...my first born was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a PNAC [Project for a New American Century] Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel." For more on this, see Ben Johnson's 2005 article, "American Nazi Idol."
Zombie concludes with a great point.
"All the reports mention the fact that there was anti-Semitic material found, and it was decried and condemned by the various people quoted in the article. But then why -- when the exact same messages are displayed at left-wing rallies -- does the media not produce news reports exposing the anti-Semitism of the 'peace movement'? "
From the Arizona Republic is the story of how a documentary Islam vs. Islamists has been excluded from an upcoming PBS series America at a Crossroads. The producer, Martyn Burke, says the film was pulled because he refused to fire two co-producers because of their affiliation with a conservative organization.
One of the co-producers, Frank Gaffney Jr. of the Center for Security Policy, told the Washington Times, "This is a well-documented, textbook case of the abuse of taxpayer funding by elements in the public broadcasting system to advocate their agenda and ensure that people who have different agenda don't get on the air."
"Until mainstream media and mainstream America understands the need to help this debate and expose the plight of moderates who push back against the Islamists within the Muslim community, we will continue to lose ground against militant Islamism. The censorship of this documentary tells us a great deal about the level to which our government is facilitating the ideology of Islamism which runs directly counter to our foundations of Americanism," said Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, a patriotic Muslim who is chairman of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, based in Arizona.
This is obviously an attempt by PBS, known for its Leftist slant, to silence those who disagree with radical Islamist front groups in America (CAIR anyone?) because they fear offending the radicals.
Your tax dollars at work for Leftist public broadcasting.

But where was the outrage on January 3 of this year when Imus and writer Mike Barnicle fantasized after the hanging of Saddam Hussein about hanging members of the Bush Administration (excerpt from NewsBusters.org).
Imus: "I was – I tried to imagine how various members of the current administration would behave were they subjected to the gallows as Saddam Hussein was. Um, and I can see Rumsfeld –"
Barnicle: “He wouldn't take it. No blindfold for Rumsfeld.”
Imus: "That's what I was thinking, you know. ‘F-you.' You know, you go to the gallows with the noose you want, not the noose you– or the noose you have, not the noose you want–"
Barnicle: "That's exactly right."
Imus: "Or Whatever. But Cheney–"
Barnicle: "Just as that trap door opens, he'd drop an f-bomb to all of them."
Imus: "How about Cheney?"
Barnicle: “I don't think Cheney would make it up the steps.”
Imus: "Now this is a guy who would, this is a guy – he'd wet his pants and he'd whine and start crying."
Barnicle: "Well He would order as a last meal 400 pounds of bacon."
Imus: "Yeah, ‘cause this is a guy got six deferments just to get out of Vietnam because he had, what was that phrase he used – he had some other more important issues to deal with. One of ’em, the last one, was getting his wife pregnant just to keep from having to deal with this."
Barnicle: "Oh God."
Imus: "Uh, who else? Wolfowitz, he'd cry."
Barnicle: "Oh yeah, he'd be shot in the back running away."
Imus: "Yeah, exactly. Yeah, or some of the other key players."
Barnicle: "Richard Perle."
Imus: "Oh, he'd, oh God, he'd, he would soil himself. So–"
Barnicle: "Can't you see him being dragged up by his cap?"
Imus: "Oh yeah."
Barnicle: "Clinging, splinters in his fingernails."
Imus: “A combover of his hanging all down the side of his head.”
On a similar note, why is it also that two supposed "civil rights leaders" who'd like to see Imus fired, Al "Tawana Brawley" Sharpton and Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson are still given credence by the media in spite of all their misdeeds. Sharpton, for instance, has used terms like "diamond merchants" for Jews, "white interloper" and "Greek Homos."

The same can be said about "Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple" which will air on PBS' American Experience tomorrow evening (Monday) at 9 P.M. on KQED. The film, directed by Stanley Nelson and written by (his wife) Marcia Smith, was shown in various theatres and film festivals around the nation, including last November in San Rafael. The film details the rise of The Rev. Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple, which left the San Francisco Bay Area for the promise of Utopia in Jonestown Guyana, which led to the murders (and some suicides) of over 913 Bay Area residents.
The whole premise of Nelson's documentary (or "crockumentary" rather) is that the Peoples Temple was this wonderful socialist experiment, celebrated for its supposed commitment to "racial equality." Nelson, who worked with propagandist Michael Moore on the show TV Nation, is so blinded by his Utopian worldview to realize that Jones (as Washington Post writer Steven Hunter wrote) "killed, it seems to me, more African Americans than any white man in American history."
Nelson is not alone in whitewashing the fraud that was Peoples Temple. Rebecca Moore (whose two sisters were among those who died in Jonestown) and her husband, Fielding McGehee, have dedicated their lives as Temple apologists. Both appear in Nelson's movie for interviews. Moore has published books called "In Defense of Peoples Temple and Other Essays," "A Sympathetic History of Jonestown" and runs a website called "Alternative Considerations of Jonestown & Peoples Temple." To illustrate the absurdity of Moore's website, read what she wrote in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina:
"...the situation of desperate poverty experienced by African Americans seems not just unchanged, but even worse in 2005 than in 1978. The message of hope, the overcoming of racial inequality, and the level of security which Peoples Temple provided would be just as appealing today as it was back then. As if to illustrate this point, one former Temple member told us, if this had happened 30 years ago, the fleet of Temple buses packed with people and supplies, which Jim Jones would have sent down to New Orleans to help out, would have arrived before FEMA did. ...It is quite clear that, ...our government failed its citizens after Hurricane Katrina. It is also clear that these same failures are what prompted people to join Peoples Temple and to pack up and leave the United States for Jonestown."
So, by Moore's twisted logic, it's the United States Government's fault that these poor people joined a deadly cult. But her Leftist logic is further evidence in an excerpt from her diary right after the Jonestown tragedy from on page 146 of a 2005 book "Dear People: Remembering Jonestown."
"Folks are anxious about the "death squads." I am going to prepare-leave some papers and evidence-in case I am "accidentally" killed in a robbery attempt, or some such bullshit. The FBI is the only "death squad" I know of. And their henchmen, the mafia."
Ignored in this film is the work of some who tried to warn about the dangers in the Temple. For more information on these early attempts to expose the Peoples Temple, read Tom Kinsolving’s blog Jonestown Apologists Alert, where he has posted the early exposes written for the San Francisco Examiner in 1972 by his father, Les Kinsolving. Tom and his sister Kathleen also wrote “Madman in Our Midst, Jim Jones and the California Cover Up” illustrating how their father’s attempts to expose Jones were stopped due to pressure by the Temple.

Just like last weekend in San Rafael, go out and make your voices heard in Santa Rosa in support of the three imprisoned law enforcement officers, as well as for securing our nation's borders.
In addition, I heard on an FM station at noon (and confirmed with the mayor's office) that Newsom has proclaimed today as "Jimi Hendrix Day in San Francisco."
Don't get me wrong, I like Jimi Hendrix's music and think he was one of the most amazing guitarists ever. But why is the mayor spending time honoring a musician instead of coming down hard on a lot of insanity which has gone on in his city recently? There was a report of a swastika painted on the side of Temple Emanu-El on Monday. Add to that how these anarchists on bicycles called Critical Mass terrorized a family, including young children, in a minivan last Friday night. Instead, Newsom wants these bicycle terrorists to "police themselves." I guess the mayor doesn't give a damn because Critical Mass is just another far-Left constituency he has to suck up to. Newsom will come down harder on S.F. police who make politically incorrect videos than these bicyclist thugs.
Clearly, the mayor's priorities for running San Francisco are not in order. The Mayor needs to rein in the Leftist insanity, not act as a music historian who performs fellatio on a microphone.
San Francisco desperately needs some adults in charge of that city, instead of the usual far-Left politicians who only cater to the anti-family, anti-military, anti-American special interests. Then again, the citizens of San Francisco, who keeps voting these loons into office, gets the government it deserves.
UPDATE: Here's the text of the Jimi Hendrix Day Proclamation, from the Mayor's Office
WHEREAS, Johnny Allen Hendrix, known as Jimi Hendrix to millions of fans throughout the world, was born on November 27, 1942 in Seattle; and he acquired his first guitar at the age of 16, joining the Rocking Kings a year later; and
WHEREAS, following a short stint in the Army, he hit the road with a succession of club bands and as a backup musician for such rhythm and blues artists as Little Richard, the Isley Brothers, Jackie Wilson, the Impressions and Sam Cooke; and
WHEREAS, he recorded three landmark albums including "Are You Experienced?", "Axis: Bold As Love" and "Electric Ladyland" in only a year and a half; and
WHEREAS, his theatrical and incendiary performances at the Monterey Pop and Woodstock festivals, which included the ceremonial torching of his guitar at Monterey, have become part of rock and roll history; and
WHEREAS, many claim Jimi Hendrix to be the greatest guitarist ever to pick up the instrument by expanding the range and vocabulary of the electric guitar into areas no musician had ever ventured before; and
WHEREAS, the impact of his brief but incredible career on popular music continues to be felt today, and his songs laid the groundwork for many musical genres, such as free jazz, Delta blues, acid rock, hardcore funk and influenced the songwriting of Bob Dylan and the Beatles; now
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that I, Gavin Newsom, Mayor of
the City and County of San Francisco, do hereby proclaim April 5, 2007 as…
JIMI HENDRIX DAY
In San Francisco!

Lindh was originally given a 20 year sentence in a plea bargain in 2002, pleading guilty to charges including carrying weapons against U.S. forces. He was originally charged with conspiring to kill Americans and support terrorists. His lawyer, James Brosnahan, a noted Leftist, pointed to a light sentence given to Austrailian David Hicks as reason to reduce Lindh's punishment. Now Lindh's father and his Leftist attorney are taking advantage of how 9/11 has become a faded memory with the public to ask for leniency for his worthless son.
"It is a question of proportionality. It is a question of fairness, and it is a question of the religious experience John Walker Lindh had," Brosnahan said. "And it was not in any way directed at the United States."
Some religious experience! Go to the mosques in Mill Valley and San Francisco, head to Afghanistan, make excuses to Daddy about the bombing of the USS Cole, meet with bin Laden, then stand by and do nothing while CIA agent John Michael Spann (who had moments earlier interviewed Lindh) was killed in the Mazar-e Sharif uprising.
Brosnahan shows that he has a habit of "politicizing his cases", as Byron York mentioned in National Review back in 2002. Brosnahan worked with Lawrence Walsh in the politically motivated indictment of Reagan's Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger the weekend before the 1992 election in which George H.W. Bush lost the Presidency to Bill Clinton. York noted that the Clinton campaign received a $1,000 donation from Brosnahan the day before the indictment was made.
Frank Lindh, the narcissistic "father" said, "In the atmosphere of the time, the best John could get was a plea bargain and a 20-year sentence. We love our son very much. He was wrongly accused when he was found in Afghanistan."
Mr. Lindh, your son is still alive, though in my opinion he doesn't deserve to be. John Spann's parents no longer have a son, his wife no longer has a husband and his children no longer have a father. That John was a hero, your John, Mr. Lindh, is nothing but a pampered little boy who turned his back on America and took up arms against this nation, knowing full well what happened not just on 9/11, but also when the USS Cole was bombed.
Maybe Frank Lindh should be put in the same prison as his pathetic son, because his 1960's non-judgmental attitude and permissive parenting is responsible for creating the monster named John Walker Lindh.
"A memo for the committee staff, circulated March 27, says the 2008 bill and its accompanying explanatory report that will set defense policy should be specific about military operations and “avoid using colloquialisms.”
The “global war on terror,” a phrase first used by President Bush shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S., should not be used, according to the memo. Also banned is the phrase the “long war,” which military officials began using last year as a way of acknowledging that military operations against terrorist states and organizations would not be wrapped up in a few years.
Committee staff members are told in the memo to use specific references to specific operations instead of the Bush administration’s catch phrases. The memo, written by Staff Director Erin Conaton, provides examples of acceptable phrases, such as “the war in Iraq,” the “war in Afghanistan, “operations in the Horn of Africa” or “ongoing military operations throughout the world.”
Flashback to the steps of the Capitol on the afternoon of September 11, 2001.
How far we've fallen from the empty pledge of national unity made by Democrats that day. There's that crook "Dirty" Harry Reid standing next to Tom Daschle. Now, Reid and Pelosi are threatening to cut off funds for Iraq. Pelosi is on her egomanical power trip in Syria thinking she's God Almighty, playing footsie with a terrorist regime while setting the struggle for women's rights back in the Middle East by wearing that headscarf. Instead of leadership, all the nation received was a photo op and a third rate rendition of "God Bless America."
It's apparent today that the only war these Democrats wanted to fight was against President Bush and Republicans, not against Islamofacism which attacked us on 9/11. Now they want to get rid of "Global War on Terrorism" because it might upset our enemies.
Congratulations Democrats, you truly are the Party of Treason.

Two Canal groups are the recipients of the money. Canal Alliance received $120,000 and the Canal Welcome Center received $25,000.
In a press release on the MCF website, President Thomas Peters continued the demagoguery of federal immigration officials, saying "The trustees of MCF share the shock and frustration at this unnecessary assault on families, particularly the shameful traumatizing of young children. Our emergency assistance is intended to help our fellow residents, and indeed our whole community, in critically needed recovery efforts...our focus is on those who were literally terrorized in their homes, helping our neighbors reestablish their lives and reassure their children. We also hope these two grants help in the rallying of community support, assisting in education and preparation designed to lessen the human impact of future actions of these kinds." Peters, according to the IJ article, was a leader in the fight against Proposition 187.
If you've given or considered making a donation to the MCF, maybe you might consider contacting them and politely ask why they are aiding and abetting those who've broken our immigration laws with their funds and that you may take your contributions elsewhere.
In a similar vein, did you know that three of Canal Alliance's corporate sponsors include Wells Fargo Bank, Bank of America and Verizon? Do they know that their donations are funding a group who is interfering with the enforcement of immigration law?
A guitar afficionado on FreeRepublic found an ad from some "Legend in His Own Mind" guitar player named Ben Marble, who claims to be in some "supergroup from cyberspace." He is selling some of his guitars on eBay, one of which is a 1957 Reissue Gold Top Les Paul Standard (autographed by the legendary Les Paul). He uses his ad to brag about an obscene comment made towards Vice President Cheney.
His ad states:
Hey this is Ben Marble. I am the guitarist/vocalist in the "supergroup of cyberspace" aka dR. O. You may also recognize me as the guy who quoted The Dick to The Dick by saying "Go F*** yourself Mr. Cheney". Well enough about me..... The bottom line is this: I have too many guitars in my collection and my wife is
going to cut off my testicles if I don't get rid of a few of them so now it is time to 'thin the herd'.
This 1957 Les Paul goldtop CUSTOM SHOP reissue ( 2005 ) is from the personal collection of Ben Marble of the band dR. O and is a featured guitar at www.rockstarguitars.net It has been autographed by Les Paul and the winner will receive a certificate of authenticity as proof of that. It is fully functional and sounds wonderful but should not be played wrecklessly. Also don't let children touch this guitar as it is far too precious to risk being damaged by the little angels ;)
But that's not all. In a photo of the guitar in the ad, Marble is wearing a t-shirt which says "Dick + Bush = Screwed."
Has Bush Derangement Syndrome hit such a low that someone can't sell a guitar without bringing politics into it?
So far, no one has bid on the guitar. Probably because the "Buy It Now" option is $3,999. You can buy a brand new one at Musician's Friend for $700 less. Then, if you're in Manhattan, you can go hear Les Paul play at the Iridium Jazz Club every Monday night and ask him to autograph it for you.
