The Climate Dementors

This is hilarious!

The Climate Dementors
Marc Hendrickx

As the Copenhagen Climate conference approaches Climate Alarmists are in a frenzy to try and convince world leaders to implement radical action to drastically reduce the CO2 emissions they believe solely responsible for our Modern Warm Period.

This frenzied response has spawned a new type of Climate Alarmist: the Climate Dementor.

Dreamed up by UK Author J.K. Rowling for her Harry Potter series, the Dementors are soul sucking phantoms who dement anyone who comes into contact with them. They feed on positive emotions, joy, happiness and good memories, forcing victims to relive their worst nightmares.

In the Harry Potter series the presence of a Dementor makes the surrounding atmosphere grow cold and dark. Their 'Kiss' sucks out the soul of their victim, leaving an empty shell, incapable of thought and with no possibility of recovery. Rowling's Dementors grow like fungi in the darkest, dankest places, creating a dense, chilly fog.

Similarly Climate Dementors are not only determined to scare us witless about an imagined impending climate catastrophe, they also want to suck all the joy and happiness out of our lives in the process.

Chief amongst them is the former US President Al Gore - the Voldemort of the Climate Dementors. Gore's demented vision An Inconvenient Truth, found to have deep factual errors by a British Judge, is largely responsible for sucking the joy and happiness out of our lives; leaving fear and paranoia in their place.

Al Gore's influence preferentially targets the young. Their little experience of long term weather patterns leaves them vulnerable to the Climate Dementors' touch.

Actors and musicians also appear particularly susceptible to the Climate Dementors' kiss. However, rather than make their own lives miserable, they act as an conduit for the Dementors, passing on their misery to the rest of us while they continue enjoy their lavish Hollywood lifestyles.

This is also true of the Dementors Groupies, the death eating computer climate modellers, whose lives grow rich from government research grants and international travel experiences while they thrust the Dementors' message of green asceticism upon the rest of us.

IPCC Chief Climate Dementor Rajendra Pachauri wants to turn us all into vegetarians making us relive our worst childhood memories of soggy broccoli, limp cabbage and over cooked Brussels sprouts.

Never again will we experience the joy of a well cooked snag, lamb chop or beef steak. With the resulting lack of protein we will become even less resistant to the Dementors' message, leading to a downward spiral of depression, from which we will never recover.

Closer to home self proclaimed public intellectual, Greens candidate for Higgins and Climate Dementor - Clive Hamilton has even suggested suspending democratic processes in order to deal with the "climate emergency". Democracy is of course the fountain of much of our happiness, and hence a natural enemy of Climate Dementors.

As Dementors grow like fungi in the darkest, dankest places they have found a natural home at our ABC.

Not a day goes by that Sydney radio personality and leading Climate Dementor, Deborah Cameron, spreads her message of climate doom and gloom. Sucking all the joy and happiness out of her audience she gets stronger as we get weaker.

Fellow Climate Dementor, Lateline presenter, Tony Jones this year managed to dement Environment Minister Peter Garrett into believing a 6 metre rise in sea levels was imminent, rather than the more modest rise of about 0.5 metres, which is predicted to occur over the next 100 years as suggested by the IPCC.

Peter Garrett still has not recovered from this encounter and remains an empty shell to this day, his judgement forever impaired; just look at what he did to the Traveston Crossing dam.

Climate Dementors also appear to have infested the ABC's science unit - what else would make respected presenter Robyn Williams suggest a sea level rise of 100 metres in the near future?

The Climate Dementors' effect on one poor fellow has been so severe that he has even stopped eating.

The Climate Dementors have kissed our leaders sucking the charisma out of them. Just look at Kevin Rudd, Penny Wong and Malcolm Turnbull. All under the Dementors spell (that would be the Imperius Curse - Kirls), no longer capable of independent thought or action, they foist the death eaters worst nightmares upon us, ignoring evidence from un-demented scientists that demonstrate there is no impending climate catastrophe, perhaps just a pending climate of inconvenience.

Poor Malcolm Turnbull has become so affected in acquiescing to the Dementors demands that he has destroyed the Liberal Party and his own leadership prospects in the process.

It turns out the most dangerous Climate Dementors aren't those like Al Gore or Tim Flannery who have no qualifications in climate science.

Based on recent leaked or hacked emails from leading IPCC scientists from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, the worst Climate Dementors are actually scientists who have played a key role in the IPCC.

Sadly it seems they have let their objectivity be swayed by their emotions, rendering their work forever tainted by the curse of misplaced passion, an emotion that has no place in the lofty laboratories of falsifiable science.

In the Harry Potter movies the effects of the Dementors can be treated with chocolate, but as this luxury item uses so much CO2 in its manufacture it will undoubtedly soon be prohibited as Climate Dementors suspend our democracies and impose their own demented dictatorship, leaving us somewhat defenceless.

It seems we will have little relief from these despicable loathsome creatures. Fortunately their other natural enemy, one that renders them senseless, is observational evidence - a real world "Patronus Charm" if you like.

It is well known that Climate Dementors will flee in the face of this data. Data which continues to demonstrate that climate models diverge from real world observations. As the divergence continues to increase, their influence will gradually diminish and one sunny day we will wake to find they have vanished altogether.

As for those emails they will remain fresh in our memories for some time to come.
The Scientists Involved in Deliberately Deceiving the World on Climate

The Public and Mainstream Media Still Don’t Grasp the Implications.

Tentacles of Climategate will reach far as information is divulged. People will rush to get on or off the bandwagon depending on their involvement. As a first hand observer, I must outline the history, identify the people involved and provide context.

“Dr. Tim Ball is a renowned environmental consultant and former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg. Dr. Ball employs his extensive background in climatology and other fields as an advisor to the International Climate Science Coalition, Friends of Science and the Frontier Centre for Public Policy.”

Dr. Ball can be reached at:

Sentient Citizens should be able to see through this patent ploy

Richard Lindzen here.

I fervently hope that Copenhagen will avoid canonising the absurd notion that climate is determined by any single parameter like CO2. The dubious attempts to link this parameter to every form of catastrophe is producing unwarranted fear. Imposing this notion as a matter of international law will set science back several centuries. The accompanying policies seem designed to do the same for society as a whole. The carbon control movement, like every malicious movement, seeks to cloak itself in an aura of virtue. Sentient citizens should be able to see through this patent ploy.

Don't Trust The Greenie Weanies!


Greens more likely thieves and liars, says shock study
Trick-cyclists v hippies - who to trust?

Psychologists in Canada have revealed new research suggesting that people who become eco-conscious "green consumers" are "more likely to steal and lie" than others.

It's Getting Warmer

If you aren't reading WattsUpWithThat, you're missing the best location for the truth about the Global Warming Hoax. Found a link to this in the comments there (the commenters are amazing as well):

ClimateGate in a 10 minute nutshell

I saw this at WattsUpWithThat. This is well worth the watch if you want the basics of who did what and why it was wrong and even illegal.

Here is the direct link to MagicJavaTV.

Real scientists do not hide data. Real scientists do not deny access to data. Decent, honest people do not refuse Freedom of Information Requests. These people are highly intelligent but nothing more than liars, frauds, and criminals. They should be prosecuted!

A note on the data.... The recording of the data itself was primarily funded by governments around the world. These scientists no more own that data than I do.

As Madoff was to money, these cons are to climate

Reproduced from the New Zealand Herald (!):

Jim Hopkins: Dodgy science gets us all off the hook

Most people know the adage, "Where there's muck, there's money", either because they read it in one of Professor Ihimaera's novels or because they saw it later, daubed on the walls of a 19th century colliery.

In any setting, it's a shrewd observation and credit belongs to its author(s). But whilst it's true that "Where there's muck, there's money", the merest pause will confirm the opposite also applies; "Where there's money, there's muck".

We've seen two examples of monetary muckiness recently. In one case, already touched upon, an author embellished his text with words that weren't his own - a hanging offence for students writing a thesis but not, apparently, so grim for those who teach them.

The other concerns a gaggle of Newton's heirs, scientific geezers beavering away, recording data, analysing statistics and reporting only what is provable and true.

Except these crooks haven't. They've cooked the books. They've lied.

They've falsified the facts to induce needless panic and alarum in the bosoms of the groundlings. Along the way, they've blackened the reputations of others who challenged their conclusions, whilst earning for themselves great renown and large amounts of dosh.

There's supposed to be an absolute rule in science: if the facts don't fit the theory, the theory must be wrong. But these beneficiaries of massive research grants have adopted a more creative approach. In their world, the First Law of Prestige and Avarice applies; when the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts.

There's nothing new about scientific frauds. The Piltdown Man was a con. For years, English education policy was influenced by the results of a study of identical twins, adopted and reared in different homes. Until someone discovered the study's author had made almost all of it up. (Give that man a job at Auckland University!)

More recently, there's been fudging of facts about cold fusion, another lucrative area of research. So this new lot of lab rats aren't mutant freaks. Science has always had its cheats. It's never been an exception to the rule, "Where there's money, there's muck".

But these egregious boffins have done more than remind us that the purest of research is prone to the corruptions of ambition and income. What they've done is wilfully attempt to influence public opinion - and political outcomes - around the

For these data-bodgers weren't investigating the mating habits of the Lesser Crested Gobsnot. No, they were climate scientists. Or, more precisely, pseudo-scientists, twisting the truth to produce results which they and their employers desired.

What's been revealed, although without enthusiasm by our credulous media, is that an influential cabal of researchers in England and America colluded to mislead us yobbos, perhaps so we'd more readily accept draconian measures like flatulent ETSs and the flying of kaumatua to Copenhagen.

A single email, one of many leaked by hackers and reprinted in the Guardian last weekend, proves the point: "I've just completed Mike's Nature [the science journal] trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith's to hide the decline."
"Mike's trick?" "Adding in?" "Hide the decline?" Such words warrant only the opprobrium of their author's peers. But no whistles were blown on this gravy train.

Instead, these co-conspirators acted as warm-mongers, shouting "Fire" in the scientific theatre although they knew there was no blaze.
This is wonderful news, folks. Truly, it is!! As Madoff was to money, these cons are to climate. They've given sackcloth and ashes such a bad name no one will want to wear it.

Because we now know all this hand- wringing, finger-pointing, cringing, wimpish, guilt-inducing "We're to blame and it's killing the planet" palaver, embraced as a new religion by countless control-freaks, wowsers and old, bewildered hippies is based on totally dodgy data.

It's bollocks!! The "facts" are a crock!! Whoopee!!! Send those pseuds a huge bunch of flowers and a note saying, "Thanks for letting us off the hook."

Because we are. You may not believe it yet - and certainly most journalists won't. "Where there's muck, there's money," definitely applies in their industry. It feeds on the apocalyptic.

And global warming was the KFC of disasters, a cataclysm so yummy no scribe could resist it.

Especially since the usual suspects; big business, Uncle Sam, globalisation, flash motor cars, fast food - all things most journalists instinctively dislike and wish to demonise - were allegedly the root of the evil.

So it will take the scribes some time to overcome their addiction. "It won't happen overnight," as Witi would have it, "but it will happen". And when it does, look out, for the wrath of the writers will be swift and savage. No one suffers the slings and arrows of outrageous reporting more intensely than a fallen angel.

Here's a toast to the hackers who exposed this scam. And another to the "scientists" who perpetrated it. Their dodgy "science" has proved one thing - global warming ain't our fault. They made it up. Now, would somebody tell Nick Smith?

Biggest Pro-Censorship Ass-Hat Award

A well deserved award... The Infidel Blogger Awards

8) Biggest Pro-Censorship Ass-Hat*

In a surprise, and shamelessly biased decision the Judge (that's me) decided to eclare two winners in this category.

The Voters have spoken and CJ of LGF was the category winner by virtue of an overwhelming majority of the popular vote. Bravo Charles! I judge a man by his friends too.

However, finishing a close second and in recognition of the contribution made to the success of these awards by Jennifer Lynch I feel it my rightful duty to declare The Canadian Human Rights Commission co-winner in the Biggest Pro-Censorship Ass-Hat category. Short may you reign.

CO2 Comment deadline for cars and light trucks FRIDAY

Now, why would they choose the Friday of Thanksgiving week for their deadline, hmmm? Yeah, I have a theory and it makes them look like the manipulative statist commies that they are.

Thanks to WattsUpWithThat for alerting us to the fast approaching deadline.

Submit your comment here.

This is the comment I submitted:

CO2 is not a pollutant. Rather, CO2 is a naturally occurring gas. We, and all animals, exhale CO2. If you regulate it, you are literally regulating whether I can breathe or not. If that's not totalitarianism, I don't know what is. The Federal Government doesn't have the right to regulate what I exhale. Nope, not in the Constitution anyplace!

Furthermore, all this climate hysteria is a result of the likes of Micheal Mann and Phil Jones who have been exposed as frauds who did not follow the Scientific Method even remotely. They are also exposed as likely criminals in at least 2 countries by colluding to avoid/deny/delay Freedom of Information Requests in the USA and the UK. That is criminal and they cannot be trusted!

Hide The Decline - Climategate

From Minnesotans for Global Warming via WattsUpWithThat.

They also have a very nice sidebar graphic ... No Cap'n Trade! I might have to snag that one for myself!

Obama Science Czar John Holdren directly involved in Climategate

From Canada Free Press

Obama Science Czar John Holdren is directly involved in CRU’s unfolding Climategate scandal. In fact, according to files released by a CEU hacker or whistleblower, Holdren is involved in what Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Canadian climatologist Dr. Tim Ball terms “a truculent and nasty manner that provides a brief demonstration of his lack of understanding, commitment on faith and willingness to ridicule and bully people”.

Read it all. This was NEVER about climate change, never about controlling/reducing global warming, never about saving the planet or it's population. You can KNOW this by noting that NOTHING proposed would ever have changed anything!

This is a $7 Billion industry in the USA. They will not go down without a fight. They are desperate to save their careers and reputations. They attempted to commit fraud on a global scale unprecedented in human history. They deserve no mercy.

If you do not read WattsUpWithThat, I suggest you begin to do follow it regularly.

CRU data was always crap

10 measly trees in Yamal? No scientist could possibly accept 10 trees as a representative temperature proxy.

"A dog ate the world's most important scientific measurement." No it didn't. They deleted it just like they said they would (see hacked CRU emails).

Using data from other researchers literally upside down passed peer review and was published.

Trick ... to hide the decline

WattsUpWithThat mirrors a posting from regarding the emails which show that the warmists knew what they were doing and had to resort ot a "trick ... to hide the decline" in temperatures.

This is fraud. Fraud on so grand a scale that it would have affected national soveriegnty, personal liberty, and every aspect of your personal life from the the price of fuel to the makeup of toilet paper.

See the green and purple lines in this graph. The purple is after the "trick ... to hide the decline" of the green line was applied.

Director of 2012 fear of fatwa

Well, well, well. Just as I thought. The reason the movie 2012 depicts the destruction of everything holy to everyone except moslems is that the director was afraid of a fatwa. Just google "Roland Emmerich 2012 fatwa" to see many articles on how the cowards submitted to the supremacy of mohamheadism. Fools! They are self-censoring and submitting to the evil ideology that is islam. May the alligator eat them first.

"I wanted to do that, I have to admit," Emmerich told "But my co-writer Harald [Kloser] said I will not have a fatwa on my head because of a movie. And he was right.

"We have to all, in the western world, think about this. You can actually let Christian symbols fall apart, but if you would do this with [an] Arab symbol, you would have ... a fatwa, and that sounds a little bit like what the state of this world is.

"So it's just something which I kind of didn't [think] was [an] important element, anyway, in the film, so I kind of left it out."

AirFramers pin hopes on MidEast

I find this ironic. From the Wall Stree Journal.

Boeing and Airbus Pin Hopes on Middle East.

Since it was 19 maniacs from the Middle East who attacked us, murdered nearly 3000 of us, destroyed the World Trade Center Towers, and also severely damaged the airlines who might otherwise be buying new commercial aircraft.

The Science is NOT Settled

No, the so-called science behind AGW is definitely not settled. And Anthony Watts of Watts Up With That? points that out thanks to Andrew at Popular Technology who has a list of 450 Peer-Reviewed Papers Supporting Skepticism of AGW caused Global Warming.

450 Peer Reviewed papers.

This is significant. The science is most definitely not settled in favor of human caused global warming. In fact, the evidence that I have seen actually shows how little effect humans have had on the environment, and that the globe has actually been cooling for the last ten years.

Fort Hood - alleged first hand account

Strange that the best reporting on the Fort Hood shooting and shooter is coming from the UK and now New Zealand. What follows are excerpts from a posting at New Zeal (which has exposed more of Obama and his Marxists than even Glenn Beck) which is an alleged first hand account of the shooting at Fort Hood.

As I'm walking up to it the gunshots start. Slow and methodical. But continuous. Two ambulatory wounded came out. Then two soldiers dragging a third who was covered in blood. Hearing the shots but not seeing the shooter, along with a couple other soldiers I stood in the street and yelled at everyone who came running that it was clear but to "RUN!". I kept motioning people fast.

About 6-10 minutes later (the shooting continuous), two cops ran up. one male, one female. we pointed in the direction of the shots. they headed that way (the medical SRP building was about 50 meters away). then a lot more gunfire. a couple minutes later a balding man in ACU's came around the building carrying a pistol and holding it tactically. He started shooting at us and we all dived back to the cars behind us
Then the female cop comes around the corner. He shoots her. (according to the news accounts she got a round into him. I believe it, I just didn't see it. he didn't go down.) She goes down. He starts reloading... I see the male cop around the left corner of the building. (I'm about 15-20 meters from the shooter.) I yell at the cop, "He's reloading, he's reloading. Shoot him! Shoot him!) You have to understand, everything was quiet at this point. The cop appears to hear me and comes around the corner and shoots the shooter. He goes down. The cop kicks his weapon further away.
I then went over the slaughter house. the medical SRP building. No human should ever have to see what that looked like. and I won't tell you. Just believe me. Please. there was nothing to be done there
I went back to the slaughterhouse. they weren't letting anyone in there. not even medics.
I did see many a soldier rush out to help their fellows/sisters. there was one female soldier, I dont' know her name or rank but I would recognize her anywhere who was everywhere helping people. a couple people, mainly civilians, were hysterical, but only a couple. one civilian freaked out when I tried to comfort her when she saw my uniform. I guess she had seen the shooter up close. a lot of soldiers were rushing out to help even when we thought there was another gunman out there. this Army is not broken no matter what the pundits say. not the Army I saw.

Moslem or not, this is quite damning

I honestly do not know whether PresZero is moslem or not but these clip, taken all at once like this, are quite daming.

Best NFL PreGame Show EVER

The Best NFL PreGame Show ever is on your local FOX channel right now!

They are in Afghanistan with our soldiers!

They are each waering a uniform carefully chosen based on their own experiences or that of their family.

And our guys are loving it!

They are showing players (pre-recorded) talking about their brothers, wives, mothers, fathers, sons, and other family members who are serving or have served.

This is incredible. The players and the broadcasters are in awe of the soldiers and the soldiers are in awe of the players and broadcasters (who are former players).

The soldiers wanted to pay respects to the murdered and injured at Fort Hood with a moment of silence and Fox went to commercial about 3 seconds into it! Unbelievable!

AARP Solicitation Days

Well, isn't it interesting that AARP sent out a mass mailing soliciting membership just a few days before they announced their support for PORCare (POR=Pelosi, Obama, Reid and poor is what we'll all be if it's ever enacted). Just trying to sucker in as many as possible before the it hits the fan.

Nevermind that I'm not even in their target age group.

Porkulus - where has it gone?

The Fall 2009 issue of UCLA Engineer arrived today. Upon reading (see page 17), I learned that "Professor Vasilios Manousiouthakis has been awared $2.1 million in grant funding to build a state-of-the-art hydrogen fueling station on the UCLA campus." The source of the funds are a "$1.7 million grant from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and a $400,000 grant from the state's Mobild Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC)." This money "will go toward the construction of one of the largest hydrogen fueling stations in California". My first thought after reading this was, gee, I wonder if Professor Manousisouthakis has one of those Honda FCX Clarity which runs on hydrogen and which is only available in Southern California. My second thought was, what the hell is wrong with Californians? They're bankrupt and still spending as if they're rich!

Since I'd skipped straight to that article, I wondered what else was going on at my alma mater and perused the rest of the magazine to find (see page 8-9) $3million in Stimulus funds going to something called The Clean Energy for Green Industry Fellowship. Turns out this will pay 33 students over the next 5 years a $33,000 stipend each to study energy storage, energy harvesting (what?), and energy conservation. So, basically, the American taxpayer will be paying people to go to school. I'm all for grants and even received grants when I attended UCLA for which I am eternally grateful, but in this economy I think this might just be a waste. Or a boondoggle that this Professor Diana Huffaker thought up to save her own job.

Then I found this article at Drudge. It's a list of where some of the stimulus money went. It's wasteful. It's pork. It's bribery. It's our money being used for nefarious purposes, for buying votes, etc. This is insanity.

- $300,000 for a GPS-equipped helicopter to hunt for radioactive rabbit droppings at the Hanford nuclear reservation in Washington state.
- $30 million for a spring training baseball complex for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies.
- $11 million for Microsoft to build a bridge connecting its two headquarter campuses in Redmond, Wash., which are separated by a highway.
- $430,000 to repair a bridge in Iowa County, Wis., that carries 10 or fewer cars per day.
- $800,000 for the John Murtha Airport in Johnstown, Pa., serving about 20 passengers per day, to build a backup runway.
- $219,000 for Syracuse University to study the sex lives of freshmen women.
- $2.3 million for the U.S. Forest Service to rear large numbers of arthropods, including the Asian longhorned beetle, the nun moth and the woolly adelgid.
- $3.4 million for a 13-foot tunnel for turtles and other wildlife attempting to cross U.S. 27 in Lake Jackson, Fla.
- $1.15 million to install a guardrail for a persistently dry lake bed in Guymon, Okla.
- $9.38 million to renovate a century-old train depot in Lancaster County, Pa., that has not been used for three decades.
- $2.5 million in stimulus checks sent to the deceased.
- $6 million for a snow-making facility in Duluth, Minn.
- $173,834 to weatherize eight pickup trucks in Madison County, Ill.
- $20,000 for a fish sperm freezer at the Gavins Point National Fish Hatchery in South Dakota.
- $380,000 to spay and neuter pets in Wichita, Kan.
- $300 apiece for thousands of signs at road construction sites across the country announcing that the projects are funded by stimulus money.
- $1.5 million for a fence to block would-be jumpers from leaping off the All-American Bridge in Akron, Ohio.
- $1 million to study the health effects of environmentally friendly public housing on 300 people in Chicago.
- $356,000 for Indiana University to study childhood comprehension of foreign accents compared with native speech.
- $983,952 for street beautification in Ann Arbor, Mich., including decorative lighting, trees, benches and bike paths.
- $148,438 for Washington State University to analyze the use of marijuana in conjunction with medications like morphine.
- $462,000 to purchase 22 concrete toilets for use in the Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri
- $3.1 million to transform a canal barge into a floating museum that will travel the Erie Canal in New York state.
- $1.3 million on government arts jobs in Maine, including $30,000 for basket makers, $20,000 for storytelling and $12,500 for a music festival.
- $71,000 for a hybrid car to be used by student drivers in Colchester, Vt., as well as a plug-in hybrid for town workers decked out with a sign touting the vehicle's energy efficiency.
- $1 million for Portland, Ore., to replace 100 aging bike lockers and build a garage that would house 250 bicycles.

Noor Faleh Almaleki has died

Noor Faleh Almaleki has died. From injuries suffered when her father ran her down. Do not believe that it was because she was too Westernized. That is nonsense. This was a premeditated murder.

Noor Almaleki had been forcibly married off like chattel to a man in Iraq by her father. She rejected that, came back to Arizona, and found love with a young man also from Iraq.

Faleh Hassan Almaleki discussed with his family his plan/desire to kill his daughter.

Faleh Hassan Almaleki then ran down his own daughter with his Jeep. He also ran down the mother of Noors boyfriend, Amal Khalaf.

Faleh then drove south to Nogales where he abandoned his vehicle and made his way to Mexico City presumably via bus. He must have had his passport with him because he flew from Mexico City to London (having flown to Heathrow and Gatwick before, I was not allowed anywhere near the aircraft until showing my passport - this access was controlled by the British). British officials returned him to the USA where he was immediately taken into custody.

Faleh has admitted to running down his daughter for "bringing shame on the family".

Noors brother defends his father in local media interviews with idiotic statements of cultural differences.

Any culture which would not consider it shameful that a father murders his own daughter who, as an adult, made choices he did not approve of, is unworthy of existing.

Other questions to consider: Why didn't officials in Mexico City stop him? Why did he get all the way to London before anyone stopped him?

Kiss the best health care in the world goodbye

If you live someplace like Canada and need an MRI or a CT Scan, the government health system will make you wait 6 months, a private clinic 1 month, but the veterinarian will get your pet in the next day. Doesn't that make you wonder why Veterinarians are covered under the PORcare (Pelosi-Obama-Reid healthcare) bill. I know why they're covered. In the event Americans start going to their Veterinarians for CT Scans and MRIs and Ultrasounds, the government can stop you.

Those of you who voted for Obama, or who sat on your hands and refused to vote because the other candidate was imperfect in some way, or those of you who insist that "the public option is dead" or "it can't pass" (you especially you snakes in the grass telling the rest of us not to fight) ... Well, you know what they say, a people (collectively) will get the government they deserve. Unfortunately, the rest of us will get the government and the health care YOU deserve.

But, at least my cat will still have the best health care in the world.

Rush on Fox News Sunday

Faleh Almaleki arrested

Not brand new news, i know. But, I've heard that Faleh Almaleki who ran his daughter and the mother of his daughters boyfriend over for being "too Westernized" here in Arizona, has been arrested. I see that article and I hear on cable news nothing about how Almaleki drove south to Mexico, abandoned his vehicle near Nogales, made his way to Mexico City, flew to London where he was denied entry and put on a flight back to the United States which explains how he came to be in Georgia.

So, the sieve of a border between the USA and Mexico works both ways. Mexico should have stopped this guy at the border. But look at him. He could easily blend in with the right clothes and attitude south of the border.

At least he's now in custody and even our liberal judges would have to agree that he's an obvious flight risk. I sure hope that if he has other daughters, that they've been taken to safety in the event some idiot judge lets him out.
