Look closely at this bag of lettuce, just below the words "Fresco Lavado" -

froglettuce

Seems that the water the lettuce was washed in contained polliwogs that grew into frogs right in the packages.  Must be the extra care Mexican companies take that makes such a special difference.

GLOBAL WARMING AND ORIGINAL SIN Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 07 December 2006

It takes a brave politician to stand up alone against a tidal wave of religious hysteria.  Such a man is Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma.  He has publicly denounced man-made global warming as a "hoax" and held a hearing in Congress yesterday (12/06) to expose it as such.

Jim Inhofe is waging a valiant struggle, and it would have been helped had he someone to testify about how "global warming" is an issue of religious fanaticism, rather than just misguided science.

"Global warming" (or more specifically man-made or "anthropogenic" global warming) is a secular religion believed in by people who have abandoned Christianity.

The vast majority of global warming fanatics are from Western cultures.  Not a lot of Chinese or Hindus or Moslems are in a tizzy about it. These fanatics are almost all ex-Christians, born and raised in a Christian culture which they grew up to reject.

A CONSERVATIVE HAT TRICK Print E-mail

[This is the text of a speech I just gave at the Leadership Institute in Washington DC.  Founded in 1979 by Morton Blackwell, the LI has trained tens of thousands of conservatives for leadership in politics, media, and academia.  I encourage you to consider participating in and supporting its efforts. ---JW]

A CONSERVATIVE HAT TRICK: Achieving Limited Government, Energy Independence, and Victory Over Islamofascism
Leadership Institute - December 6, 2006

I've been a conservative all my life - even in high school and college.  I never went through some juvenile left-wing trip, I always thought Che Guevara was a commie thug, always admired Barry Goldwater and of course, Ronald Reagan.

Yes, I'm an Ayn Rand Objectivist, Ludwig Von Mises laissez faire capitalist type of conservative, yet I've always thought that the conservative political movement held the best actual hope in reality for solving many of America's most basic problems.

In truth, though, I don't care about problems.  I care about solutions.  Problems are not important.  Only solutions to them are.  So this morning, we are not going to talk about problems - however easy and tempting it would be to do so in our post-November 7, Speaker Pelosi world. 

Instead we are going to talk about solutions, solutions to three of the largest problems we face today.  How do we achieve genuinely limited government, end our dependence on foreign oil that subsidizes our enemies, and defeat a threat to our liberties greater than even Soviet Communism, that of Islamofascism?

THE IRAQ SENILE, STUPIDITY, AND SURRENDER GROUP Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 07 December 2006

One hundred and forty years ago, British philosopher John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) wrote:
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse... A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. (Dissertations and Discussions 1867 Vol.1 p. 26.)
A perfect description of the Democrat Party leadership and the editors of the New York Times today.  Which is why they are hyping the Iraq Study Group Report to the moon. 

They hope to use the hype to force President Bush to surrender in Iraq.  They will not succeed.

Yesterday (12/06), I and a small group of conservatives met with a top White House aide (whose comments were not for attribution so I can't name him).  In so many words, he told us that President Bush's response to the Iraq Study Group Report and the media hysteria around it is:  "Thank you for sharing."

THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT YOU CAN GIVE Print E-mail
Written by To The Point News   
Thursday, 07 December 2006

There is simply no better Christmas present you can give this year than one to American soldiers risking their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan so that we may safely enjoy our freedom here at home.

They are true "human shields," willing to place their lives between Islamofascist terrorists and us.

As General John Abizaid, commander of US forces in Iraq, has explained:  "If America walks away from the terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan, the terrorists won't walk away from America."

There are so many ways to give our soldiers a Christmas present - and they are all listed in the Defense Department's website America Supports You.

You can send a care package to a soldier in Iraq, donate frequent flyer miles to help reunite him or her with their family, send support to wounded soldiers, contribute to military scholarship funds, and so much else.

The Make a Difference - How You Can Help section of the website provides the details on how you can give over two dozen different kinds of Christmas presents to our soldiers.

As you are reading this, tens of thousands of the brightest and bravest Americans on earth are fighting for us.  Just think of what it will mean to any of them that you care enough, you appreciate them enough, to give them a Merry Christmas.

For it's not only the best Christmas present you can give to someone else.  It's also the best Christmas present you can give to yourself and your country.

DO WE HAVE A PRO-TERRORIST IMMIGRATION SERVICE? Print E-mail
Written by Sara Carter   
Thursday, 07 December 2006

Have you ever heard of a religious visa petitioner?  Any recognized religious organization may file a R-1 visa request for a foreign national to come to the US and work for them.

Since September 11, 2001, more than 5,000 petitioners have applied to sponsor foreign religious workers.  The majority of them are Moslems.  The majority were granted visas and immigration benefits without proper background checks.

Is the US Citizenship and Immigration Service pro-terrorist, trying to get Moslem terrorists into our country?  No - but it might as well be.

JAMES BAKER AND PARIS HILTON Print E-mail

Thursday, 07 December 2006

President Kennedy once hosted a dinner for Nobel Prize winners.  At the dinner he reportedly said: "I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined here alone."

After reviewing the report of the Iraq Study Group, released Wednesday, New York Post editorial page editor John Podhoretz declared: "The nation's capital hasn't seen such concentrated wisdom in one place since Paris Hilton dined alone at the Hooters on Connecticut Avenue."

T. F. Boggs, an Army sergeant recently returned from his second tour in Iraq, said the recommendations were a "joke" that "could only have come from a group of old people who have been stuck in Washington for too long."

IS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A LEGITIMATE NEWS SOURCE? Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 07 December 2006

In a story that attracted international attention, the Associated Press reported Nov. 24 that:
Shia militiamen grabbed six Sunnis as they left Friday worship services, doused them with kerosene and burned them alive near Iraqi soldiers who did not intervene, Iraqi Police Capt. Jamil Hussein said.

The savage revenge attack for Thursday's slaying of 215 people in the Shiite Sadr City slum occurred as members of the Mahdi Army militia burned four mosques and several homes while killing an unknown number of Sunni residents in the once-mixed Hurriyah neighborhood of Baghdad.
MSNBC's Contessa Brewer said this sensational story was a trigger for the network's decision to refer to the conflict in Iraq as a civil war.  But two difficulties have emerged with the it:

First, both the U.S. military and the Iraqi government say they can find no evidence the incident reported by Capt. Hussein ever occurred.

Second, Jamil Hussein may not even exist.  He may be an invention of the Associated Press.  The Iraqi Ministry of the Interior says it has no police captain named Jamil Hussein.

WHAT GOOD IS SUFFERING? Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Joel Wade   
Friday, 08 December 2006

What we're going end up talking about today is the ideology that encourages passive and helpless suffering as a moral good.

You see this on the left with Cindy Sheehan, whose suffering gives her carte blanche to say and do whatever she wishes, no matter how ridiculous or hateful.

You see it in the Race Hustler extortionists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, who help people to wallow in their hard times because this gives them the moral high ground, particularly in relation to anyone who is happy and successful.

This is a weakness in our culture that our enemies know well. It was used just recently by the now-infamous "Flying Imams" who arrogantly flaunted behavior that was clearly threatening, and when they were called on it and kicked off their flight, they cried "Victim!"

By assuming the culturally sanctioned mantle of the helpless suffering victim they deflected attention away from their threatening behavior, and succeeded in actually getting support from those liberal corners of our society that buy the victimhood shtick.

TERRORIST KIDNAPPING Print E-mail
Written by To The Point News   
Friday, 08 December 2006

A driver is stuck in a humungous traffic jam on US 95 South, just outside of Washington DC.

Nothing is moving north or south.  Suddenly a man knocks on his window.

The driver slides down his window and asks, "What happened?  What's the hold up?"

"Terrorists have kidnapped Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, and John Kerry.  Seems like they were having a meeting with Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, so they got them too.  Now they're blocking the road and demanding a $100 million dollar ransom."

SHARIA WATCH Print E-mail

Thursday, 30 November 2006

Ufda.  That's Swedish for "Wow" - or more colloquially, "Holy Anti-Islamofascism, Batman!"  The worldwide response to our memo calling for The Creation of an Anti-Islamofascism Movement last week, patterned on the Anti-Communism Movement during the Cold War, has been truly astounding.

The memo has gone "viral," with blogs reproducing it all over the Internet.  Dozens of groups have contacted us wanting to cooperate and participate.  My co-author Steve Baldwin and I have lost count of the number of supportive emails.

Folks, we have a phenomenon here.  It won't be long now before we have a movement with an organized infrastructure dedicated to identifying and targeting the weaknesses and vulnerabilities of the Islamofascists.

But as this is being built, people are impatient to start doing something now.  So we are proposing an action program called Sharia Watch.  There will be a Sharia Watch website up soon coordinating folks' participation across the country, but in the meantime, you can engage in a Sharia Watch on your own in your community.

ANTI-ISLAMOFASCISM MOVEMENT UPDATE Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Friday, 01 December 2006

For all those who wish to participate in The Creation of an Anti-Islamofascism Movement described last week, here is how to start doing so.

An umbrella organization is being formed called The Coalition to Preserve Civilization, which will help enable all those involved in the emerging Anti-Islamofascism Movement and keep them informed of everyone else's activities.

The way to get involved in this right now is to join The 910 Forum.  You'll notice in the left side bar a long list of blogs providing all kinds of info on Anti-Islamofascism. 

To subscribe to the Forum - called "910" for the day before 9/11, since if we had been adequately prepared, 9/11 would have been prevented - email This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it -- and include something brief about yourself.

This is not a discussion forum, so your inbox will not be flooded.  But it will keep you informed regarding who is doing what on the Anti-Islamofascism front.  And you can contribute your own suggestions and information as well.

We welcome your support and participation.  Working together, we will dig Islamofascism's grave and bury it in the ash heap of history.

THE TWO ROBIN HOODS Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 30 November 2006

In our new post-11/7 world, it's important to understand that there are two Robin Hoods:  the legend and the myth of the legend.  The first is a conservative-libertarian.  The second is a liberal thug.

The legend was best played by Errol Flynn in the 1938 movie classic, The Adventures of Robin Hood, with Olivia de Havilland as Maid Marion, Alan Hale as Little John, Claude Rains as Prince John, Melville Cooper as the Sheriff of Nottingham, and Basil Rathbone as the evil Sir Guy de Gisbourne.

The myth of the legend is currently being played by Teddy Kennedy with Nancy Pelosi as his understudy in drag.

ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT IN THE SENATE Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 30 November 2006

Over a beer earlier this week with a Republican Senator, I couldn't help but asking how he was doing.  Had the GOP retained its majority, he would have been the chairman of one of the Senate's most powerful committees.  Starting next month, he would be just another minority schmuck.

"Sure, it's a disappointment," he said.  "It's the dream of your life for a guy like me.  So I have a choice.  I can be bitter - or I can have fun.  I choose fun."

I frowned.  "How are you going to have fun?" I asked skeptically.

He smiled.  "Come on, Jack, you know how the Senate works.  It's not like the House, where the minority is lower than dirt, and treated like subhuman Moslem Dhimmis.  Harry (Harry Reid, incoming Senate Majority Leader) has no majority at all.  Hell, it's 51-49, with the 51st being Joe Lieberman and we've got Cheney as a tie-breaker.  We can screw them any time we want and Harry knows it."

DENYING THE FUTURE TO ISLAM Print E-mail
Written by Fjordman   
Thursday, 30 November 2006

I am a European.  I was born and have lived my life in Europe.  I am determined that Europe will not become "Eurabia," that it will not succumb to Islamification.  We can deny Europe's future to Islam.  Here is why I think so.

Islam's historical high point was in the Middle Ages, when Islam was perfect for medieval warfare.  Afterwards, it gradually lost out to the West, especially after the Scientific and Industrial Revolutions, which could never have taken place in Islamic lands because of its lack of freedom and cult of authority.

Ironically, history has now gone full circle. Moslems are still useless in developing anything new, but as a result of migration, modern communications, the presence of Moslems in infidel lands, and Arab oil revenues, they can more readily buy or expropriate technology from others.

Yet pessimists, however much they point to Western weaknesses, overlook the fact that Islam has many weaknesses, too.
