Infant Bombs, Droughts, and Daily Kos on Ron Paul Oh my!

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 21, 2007

Here is a quick roundup of news I couldn’t let slide by without adding my two cents:

Remember the bombings that killed over a hundred people last month?
[al-Jazeera] [GATEWAY PUNDIT]
The story is even worse than initially thought, an infant was used:

THE ONE YEAR OLD BOMB

In an effort to get close enough to murder Benazir Bhutto, one of the Islamist attackers reportedly strapped his explosives to a one-year old infant.

Meanwhile, horrifying new details emerged last night of the attempt by suicide bombers to kill Ms Bhutto on her return home from exile last month.

Investigators from Ms Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party said yesterday they believed the bomb, which killed 170 people and left hundreds more wounded, was strapped to a one-year-old child carried by its jihadist father.

They said the suicide bomber tried repeatedly to carry the baby to Ms Bhutto’s vehicle as she drove in a late-night cavalcade through the streets of Karachi.

“At the point where the bombs exploded, Benazir Bhutto herself saw the man with the child and asked him to come closer so that she could hug or kiss the infant,” investigators were reported as saying. “But someone came in between and a guard felt that the man with the child was not behaving normally. So the child was not allowed to come aboard Benazir’s vehicle.”

Never for a moment believe that these people won’t stop until they are all dead, or they rule the world. They will do this regardless of what we do, or fail to do, in Iraq.

After that last look into the madness of Islamofascism, let’s peer into the madness that is Enviro-weenism:

HOTHOUSE OR ICEHOUSE?

Time magazine, November 26, 2007 (Michael Grunwald):

[Georgia’s] drought was a natural event transformed into a natural disaster by human folly. And while it’s still hard to say whether global warming caused any particular drought or flood or fire, it’s going to cause more of all of them.

Time magazine, June 24, 1974:

In Africa, drought continues for the sixth consecutive year, adding terribly to the toll of famine victims… Climatological Cassandras are becoming increasingly apprehensive, for the weather aberrations they are studying may be the harbinger of another ice age.

This would be funny, if these people didn’t have the control of our lives on their agenda. I just hope I am still alive in a few years when it becomes evident that solar activity is leading us into a new ice age, or at least a good cooling down.

My last story is an admission by ABC News that we have won in Iraq, and that the Surge has worked, and the Occupation successful:

A HUMBLE MAN, INDEED

CHARLES GIBSON: You took a lot of doubting and rather skeptical questions about the surge. I’ll give you a chance to crow. Do you want to say, I told you so?

PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH: [LAUGHS] No, I don’t, because the decision, while it was a tough decision was really studied, and uh, and it was based upon the recommendations of wise military commanders.

CHARLES GIBSON: Don’t you take some satisfaction, though, in the fact that the, that the levels of violence have come down so far?

PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH: Absolutely, primarily because I, you know, I hurt when America loses a soldier anywhere, and it breaks my heart to think about loved ones who will miss a child, or a husband. And having said that, I’m thrilled for the Iraqis that they’re beginning to see enough security so that reconciliation is taking place as well as in, as the economy is beginning to move.

President George W. Bush is to good, and humble, of a man to get up and do the superior dance, crow, or otherwise cheapen his victory. He knows the cost.

The Legacy Media, and the Left, could care less about the cost. They are blinded by their hatred of the President, the Neocons (I am one!), and American Exceptionalism.

Now, on to the people who really hate all of us in “fly-over country.”:

DAILY KOS ON RON PAUL, NAZIS, AND THE GOP

We already know that Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is getting public support from neo-Nazis. We also know that “non-partisan pollster” John Zogby is the guy Rush Limbaugh called “my favorite pollster,” probably because he presents himself as “non-partisan” despite the fact that he’s done scores of polls for the National Republican Congressional Campaign, the rightwing/libertarian Cato Institute, and the “intelligent design” whackjobs at the Discovery Institute. But even by those standards, Zogby appears to have hit a new ethical low with a poll supposedly showing Ron Paul doing great in a “blind bio” survey:

Only those four candidates were included in the question, which was commissioned by Jones Productions, a media company based in Austin, Texas. The survey included 389 likely Republican primary or caucus voters and was conducted Nov. 14–17, 2007. It carries a margin of error of +/– 5.1 percentage points.

The blind bio question was also posed to a larger pool of 1,009 likely voters nationwide, including Democrats and independents, and Paul was the big winner among that universe of voters, winning 33%, compared to 19% for Giuliani, 15% for Romney, and 13% for Thompson.

Knowing that Zogby has a horrible reputation for presenting dubious results that support the dubious claims of his rightwing clients, but without disclosing his conflicts of interest, I decided to look in to this so-called “media company” that commissioned the poll. It has numerous media outlets; in fact, at one of its flagship outlets, they are currently touting their poll results.

That’s right, John Zogby is polling for Ron Paul supporter and conspiracy theorist entrepreneur Alex Jones.

I say Ron Paul supporter because, in addition to pushing Ron Paul all over his various websites—including prisonplanet.com—he’s also contributed $2,300 to Paul’s campaign, the maximum contribution allowed for a primary campaign. This is a fact that Zogby apparently doesn’t feel compelled to divulge, and its something reporters and news outlets seldom worry about, treating Zogby as if he’s as non-partisan as truly non-partisan operations like Gallup, Pew and the Field Poll.

But this isn’t just some simply a case of doing a poll for a candidate’s supporter and not revealing the conflict. Alex Jones is possibly the greatest trafficker in crackpot conspiracies in America. For instance, through Alex Jones, you can learn about the occult empire running the planet, you can learn about the bloodlines of the Illuminati, you can learn the truth about global warming, that it’s a ruse to bring about one-world government, and all of this will be obvious to you once you begin to use Biblical prophesy to foresee world events.

Alex Jones’ greatest achievements, however, lay in the field of 9-11 conspiracies:

SALE!! Alex Jones’ new book, 911: Descent into Tryanny. This is Jones’ first book and those ordering now will be getting a first edition. Descent into Tyranny is a brutal exposé documenting the New World Order crime syndicate’s involvement in the September 11th attacks.

The book reveals how the controlled press is spinning and whitewashing the 911 story.

Jones covers the cashless society control grid, implantable microchip propaganda, the fact that Posse Comitatus had already been disolved decades ago, the US government concentration camp plan, the FBI and FEMA training police that the Founding Fathers and Christians are “terrorists,” the global elite’s goal to dumb down and kill off 80% of the world population, eugenics and much, much more…

It appears that the Kooky Kos Kidz hate Alex Jones perhaps more than I do, and that’s saying something.

Ron Paul would do a lot better if he stood up and told the 9/11 Twoofers that they are nuts, and tell the Nazis to kiss off. These supporters have really destroyed this mans reputation, and his other supporters are too blind with hope to see it. I hope there are enough suicide prevention hot lines to handle the Loss of Hope the day after the primaries…unless a third or fourth place finish inspires them.

I really should quit messing with the Ronbots, it’s like shooting fish in a barrel…only the Carp is to primitive to know it’s dead already.

As a Fred Thompson supporter, I realize that his (Fred’s) chances are somewhere between slim and none following his dismal entrance into the race.
