Afghan suicide bomber kills anti-terror chief. I recall seeing the same headline a few months back. Apparently the Afghan anti-terror chief du jour is the twin of Al Qaeda's number two. You know, the guy who gets killed by the U.S. military every four months or so.
And why are we there again? I recall hearing about a pipeline that was supposed to go from Whereverthefuckistan through Lawlessratholeistan and deliver some fossil fuel to an awaiting tanker, but surely our media would tell us whether "Operation Destroy the Earth so a Handful of Fuckers Can Own Everything for Five Minutes" was on track. Let me check Yahoo's! front page. Hmmm, Italian tourist arrested for forgetting wallet at NYC steakhouse, ideal time to book flights, Lindsay Lohan says "no" to Dancing With the Stars....
Oh, this is going to be an interesting story. The child abuse scandal involving various media/entertainment personalities is already exploding, so the participants in the secret gay sex not involving kids may skate by when they are finally revealed (assuming the participants weren't the fire breathing "gays are destroying" Britain types). That said, I don't think the National Front members are going to be too happy.
One last point: the MP who kept up pressure on the police to investigate what he said was "was 'clear intelligence' of an abuse network of powerful men with influence at the highest level – in Parliament and even in Downing Street," is Tom Watson, who also has played a very influential role in the ongoing cell phone--and computer--hacking scandal involving that monster, Rupert Murdoch, his filthy family, and his contemptible newspaper and other media assets. Why isn't he being considered for leadership in the Labour Party instead of that milquetoast, centrist, "New Labour" whore Ed Miliband? Oh, right. Never mind.
Christian family values attorney arrested by FBI for sex crimes. What makes this increasingly typical story a bit more interesting is that there are a few twists we haven't seen before. Namely: the attorney is a middle-aged woman, who transported a teen across the U.S.-Canada border, she had the teen engage in sex and convinced her to let it be filmed, and, of course, there are allegations of drug possession, weapons, and threats. You know there is probably even more bad shit out there, but really, the list, as is, is already impressively bad. And what makes this story even sweeter is that this miscreant's employer, The Alliance Defense Fund, "made news this week by distributing a memo to county clerks in Maryland, Maine and Washington encouraging them not to issue same-sex marriage certificates to couples wishing to wed in those states." Because gay people are bad. But not christian attorney bad, that's for damn sure.
UK threatened to arrest Assange inside embassy, says Ecuadorean minister. So apparently David Cameron's govenrment believes that they can ignore international law and violate the sovereignty of the Ecuadorean government's embassy. This should make it clear how badly the Obama administration wants Julian Assange, because you know that the this government is behind the attempt to break Assange and Wikileaks. Will someone remind me why I have to vote for Obama again?
NYPD 'consistently violated basic rights' during Occupy protests – study. The subhead reads: Report by NYU and Fordham law schools found 'shocking level of impunity' and department that acted beyond its powers. What would be really shocking is if the proper punishment were meted out to those evil filthy bastards who abused the Occupy patriots. Not holding my breath. Instead, I am waiting for Police Chief Kelly to extend his wrist for a soft rap.
Christine Lagarde, IMF boss who caused international outrage when she suggested that Greeks should pay their taxes, pays no tax. What she suggested is that somehow some poor fool who perhaps paid a few Euro less than he should have was responsible for the current mess in Europe. Not the greedy fucking rich. Not the banks. No, that guy, the waiter at the local taverna, or the guy who takes tickets on the ferry, him. Well, it was easy to rile up the others by suggesting that the Greeks were lazy tax evaders, but when they come after you? And slowly the other Europeans are coming to the realization that that which the Germans could not achieve with bombs and tanks, they are attempting to achieve with the Euro. Won't win this time, either. No one wants to be Germany's bitch.
