Abu al-Zarqawi died. George Washington met him at the Pearly Gates. He slapped him across the face and yelled, "How dare you try to destroy the nation I helped conceive and fought so hard for!" Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose and shouted, "You wanted to end our liberties but you failed!" James Madison followed, kicked him in the groin and said, "This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!" Thomas Jefferson was next, beat al-Zarqawi with a long cane and snarled, "It was Evil men like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence." The beatings and thrashings continued as George Mason, James Monroe, and 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the terrorist leader. As al-Zarqawi lay bleeding and in pain, an Angel appeared. Al-Zarqawi wept and said, "This is not what you promised me." The Angel replied, "I told you there would be 72 Virginians waiting for you in Heaven. What did you think I said?"
A Saudi cleric explains...
Five of the seven arrested in a plot to blow up the Sears tower in Chicago are American citizens. One was here illegally. They were all part of a Black Muslim group. Let me be the first to point out the obvious inter-relationship between the constant drumbeat of supposed alienation from, and oppression by, the dominant "culture" that I'm quite certain was taken up by these guys and the desire to see the symbols of that culture destroyed. Being taught that you are different, undervalued and inevitably to be victimized by the majority can only lead to distrust, hate and violence against those who you consider to be the cause of your failure. That's why black parents who teach their kids that "whitey" is out to get them are doing not only their offspring a disservice, but the society at large. I also blame the multi-culturalists who bend over backwards to teach "acceptance" of anything no matter how wrong or self-destructive under the auspices of cultural difference. We need to wake up very, very soon to the Balkanization of our culture from bi-lingual education and ballots, to the hyphenization of our identities, to the celebration in our schools of every culture but that of America. This constant focus on differences rather than similarities does not encourage tolerance, but instead breeds hatred. We must wake up and realize we are at war...not just militarily, but culturally as well...and we cannot afford to lose either battle.

With so little time these days, here's a two minute drill: 1. Five hundred artillery shells loaded with mustard and sarin gas have been found in Iraq. The Bloomberg News report on this is buried at page 17 of my local rag. Simultaneously, any number of Democrats are repeating in one form or fashion the "Bush Lied" mantra during the cut and run debate, which is to be found on the front page. Is this irony lost on everyone? 2. Almost simultaneously with the arrest of persons plotting to blow up the Sears tower, the NY Times runs a story helpful to our enemies disclosing another tool being used to identify and apprehend terrorists. 3. A Clark County (Las Vegas) valedictorian has her microphone turned off because she intended to mention "Jesus Christ" in her graduation address. I will bet dollars to doughnuts that if a Muslim student wanted to thank Allah (peanut butter be upon him) for helping him through his four years of high school, not a peep would be heard form the ACLU. 4. What does it say about the Democratic party when it turns on a guy like Joe Lieberman? What does it say about Al Gore that he won't endorse his former running mate? 5. KFC is being sued for surreptitiously placing fat and cholesterol in its fried chicken. I, for one, had no idea that un-skinned chicken deep fried in oil was unhealthy. 6. Intellectual dishonesty alert. The folks who advocate for gun restrictions (e.g. San Francisco city council) argue that, by banning firearms, gun-related violence will decrease dramatically and perhaps even end. However, I'll bet dollars to doughnuts (again) that most of these same folks also take the position that, despite any restrictions or outright bans on abortion, abortions will still take place. Therefore it's unrealistic to even consider such bans. That's it for now...but don't forget that Wideawakes radio goes on line on Independence Day, 2006 at a computer near you! Check out the promo!
Was al-Zarqawi still alive after the bomb blasts and then shot by American soldiers? Why did three prisoners at Guantanamo commit suicide or did they? May I say in all seriousness and with all due respect. Who gives a flying f##k. Four more dead terrorists. COUNTDOWN: ONLY 18 DAYS UNTIL THE LAUNCH OF WIDEAWAKES RADIO.
Ann Coulter refers to four 9/11 widows using their grief for political gain as "harpies." The MSM and the leftwingnuts (redundant, I know) go apoplectic with their charges of insensitivity, inappropriateness and just plain meanness. Op-ed pages are filled with analysis, commentary and criticism. Secretary of State Condi Rice is referred to as a "ghetto homegirl bitch" at a "Laughing Liberally" comedy tour stop in L.A. Try to find any commentary on that in the MSM.
The NY Times, among others, has labeled the President's surprise trip to Baghdad as a "publicity stunt". The trip was obviously designed to allow the President to honor the newly formed Iraqi government in person and, coincidentally, show our terrorist enemies that the leader of the war against them can fly in and out of the maw with impunity. This is all good stuff, both substantively and psychologically. Which brings me to my point. Our press expresses disdain for our President (and theirs as well whether they like it or not) when he properly responds both politically and tactically to a situation, calling it cheap politically rhetoric. On the other hand, whenever Osama bin Laden furtively produces a videotape from his mountain cave production studio ranting on about the inexorability of his cause, and slips it to an al Jazeera accomplice, that same media will go on and on about the psychological impact this will have on our troops and how this is evidence that no progress is being made in the war on terror. By the way, since Zarqawi was killed, Iraqi and American forces have carried out 452 raids and killed 104 terrorists.
Darryl Hannah "remains behind bars..." as a result of her arrest yesterday at the "urban garden." I would adore hearing just one supposed reporter ask her the simple question: "Ms. Hannah, doesn't the owner of the property who paid $5 million to buy it back from the City of L.A. and has been paying $25,000 per month since then have the right to do with it want he pleases?" I won't hold my breath. The debate on Iraq policy is a contentious and polarizing one. Some want U.S. troops withdrawn from Iraq by the end of this year. Some argue equally vociferously that it would be foolhardy to set any sort of timetable. A third group triangulates and calls for withdrawals to start this year but with no fixed timetable. And this is all within the Democratic party. COUNTDOWN: ONLY 19 DAYS BEFORE WIDEAWAKES RADIO GOES ON LINE.
Being built out of scrap from the wreckage of the Twin Towers. NOTE: Interestingly, I've only found this story displayed with any prominence in the Times of London and the Australian.

Check out mermaid Darryl Hannah being arrested yesterday at the "Urban Garden" protest in South L.A. Great story, ripe for Hollywood treatment. Poor group of underprivileged inner city residents convert an abandoned parcel of land into a cooperative farm that has been providing fresh fruits and vegetables, not to mention personal solace, for ten years. However, this urban oasis becomes threatened by evil developers who try to wrest control of the land from its peace-loving respecters of the Earth. To the rescue comes a phalanx of the powerful with a conscience realizing that the world can become a better place one acre at a time if only the greedy profit-merchants can be stopped. Not. The real story is that the land was privately owned but taken through eminent domain in the 1980's by the City of L.A. for a trash incinerator project that never panned out. The owner, through a series of court challenges over the years, was able to get the land back...after paying the City $5 million for it in 2003. By that time a bunch of squatters had been allowed by the City to set up their own garden there for over 10 years so the owner had to fight a new legal battle to get them "evicted" (strange choice of words), all the while paying $25,000 to $30,000 a month in carrying costs. But that didn't stop the likes of Darryl Hannah, Martin Sheen, Danny Glover and many of the rest of the brainless Hollywood left crowd from turning this into some sort of human rights issue. Worst of all is the fact that L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa sided with the squatters against the legal owner of the property as if, after more than a decade of free use of a piece of real estate they didn't own, the latter has some sort of moral imperative on their side. Idiots, all. COUNTDOWN: ONLY 20 DAYS BEFORE WIDEAWAKES RADIO GOES ON LINE WITH YOURS TRULY AS ONE OF THE LESS TALENTED HOSTS. LAUNCH SET FOR JULY 4, 2006
