Flogging: Coming To A U.S. Prison Near You?

Posted by Brian
What do you think? Caning instead of prison for lesser offenses, or too violent?


Criminologist Peter Moskos: Give offenders a choice–prison or FLOGGING; (he's serious)

Posted by:
Jay Kernis - Senior Producer

ONLY ON THE BLOG: Answering today’s OFF-SET questions is Peter Moskos, assistant professor of Law, Police Science, and Criminal Justice Administration at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City. He also teaches at the City University of New York’s Doctoral Program in Sociology. A former Baltimore, Maryland police officer, he is author of the book, “Cop in the Hood."

Moskos’s new book is entitled, “In Defense of Flogging.”


The Supreme Court has affirmed a federal order telling California to reduce its overflowing prison population, a situation the majority said "falls below the standard of decency." California now has to figure out how to reduce the population by more than 30,000 prisoners. From your point of view, why does the prison system in the U.S. continue to fail?

New DNC Chair Faults GOP for Wanting Illegal Immigration to be a Crime

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is breathtaking to watch. Not in a physical way, but in her intellectual vapidity. Earlier in the week she commented that pro-life Republicans are "anti women" for voting to cut funding to Planned Parenthood. But apparently the hatred only extends to Republicans, for when she was asked if being anti-women extended to her pro-life Democrat colleagues, she stated< "No". Her latest venture into incoherence has her accusing conservatives of wanting to make illegal immigration "a crime". This, after making the asinine statement that illegal immigrants are the "backbone of our economy". The "backbone"? Really? In fairness to Wasserman-Schultz, she does use the politically correct term "undocumented aliens" when referring to those in the country illegally, thus making her argument sound slightly less moronic.

She also dismisses a question about a recent exchange with the Republican Jewish Coalition with pert giggle, a nice tactic to show that her more conservative Jewish friends are not to be taken seriously regarding their concern that the Obama Administration has taken a decidedly more hostile stance with our longtime ally Israel, and is now more pro-Palestinian. During a joint meeting with the RJC and other Jewish groups, which included Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, Wasserman-Schultz asked that the Obama Administration's hostile stance towards Israel not be made an issue in the 2012 campaign. In other words: "Just shut up"! She never fully answers the question, but bloviates about her personal pride in being the first Jewish head of the DNC. However she never gets around to addressing how she can support an administration that has time and again been either luke-warm, or outright hostile, to Israel and it's leaders. Where was she when President Obama left Prime Minister Netanyahu to "go to lunch" on his initial trip to the White House? Not a word from then-Representative Wasserman-Schultz on the President's deplomatic 'slap in the face' our ally.

Wasserman-Schultz continues a long-line of political hacks to have held the position of DNC Chair. The fact that, as a "proud Jewish woman", she is willing to throw Israel under the bus for this, or any President, is a disgrace on so many levels.

Media Reports "Democracy Activists" Behind "Day Of Rage" Protests Through Africa, Middle East

Posted by Brian

The New Caliphate?


Media reports continue to obfuscate the major players behind numerous "Day of rage" protests erupting through out Africa and the Middle East, from Ethiopia, to Saudi Arabia, to Georgia, as well as numerous other countries since February.  What is missing from much of this "reporting" is who the entities are behind these uprisings.  The useful idiots in the media were dragged kicking and screaming into even acknowledging that the Muslim Brotherhood was behind organizing numerous groups for the protests in Tahir Square. Even then, their participation was downplayed, and we were told that their numbers were so small as to be inconsequential.  Now we know that the Brotherhood has a major role in the formation of the new Egyptian government.
We also know that the Muslim Brotherhood is behind the Days of Rage protest in Syria.  Is it not reasonable to think that the Muslim Brotherhood and/or it's allies, such as Hezbollah, are behind many, if not all, of the Days Of Rage riots springing up all over the region?  The coincidence is too great.  To quote Hillary Clinton, to ignore all of the coincidences "requires a willing suspension of disbelief".  The Islamic world has taken measure of Barack Obama, has sensed that he is weak, and have decided that the time is right to put the wheel in motion of reestablishing a Muslim Caliphate from the Middle East, across Africa, and into Europe.

Umayyad Caliphate  661-750 AD


I believe that we will start to see more of these "Days of Rage" in the Middle East, which will begin to spread into Western Europe.
Meanwhile, the media will continue to tell us that we don't see what we see.

"Pro-Democracy" Libyan Rebels Massacre Over 800 Black Non-Arab Libyans

Posted by Brian
An Arab "Spring Ethnic Cleaning"
Contrary to what a giddy, left-wing media is reporting, events in the Middle East are not some spontaneous uprisings by people who just want freedom and democracy.  The longer that these things play out, the more clear things become.  The initial uprising in Tunisia may have been spontaneous, but Islamists in the region have simply used that event as the catalyst for all of the other uprisings.
Egypt, which the media immediately labeled a pro-democracy movement, ignoring the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in the planning of events, now appears to have traded dictator Hosni Mubarak for a government in which the Muslim Brotherhood is going to have great influence, including imposing Shari'a Law.
Now NATO and Obama backed rebels in Libya are wiping out non-Arab blacks in the country. Apparently, the rebels aren't just a bunch of unorganized "freedom fighters".  Could it be that the Muslim Brotherhood has a larger role in the uprising in Libya than has been previously reported?
 
LIBYA:HABESHIA, ETHNIC CLEANSING RISK FOR BLACK LIBYANS

25 May , 17:49

(ANSAmed) - ROME, MAY 25 - Black Libyans risk an ethnic cleansing action in Libya because of the determination against them by Libyans of Arab origin that sympathise with the rebels, who attack them as though they were Gaddafi's mercenaries. Such is the warning raised by don Mussie Zerai, an Eritrean priest who in Rome presides the Habeshia cooperation and development agency and who reported the ''massacre of 800 Africans in Misrata alone''.

Anti-Christian violence in Faisalabad: tombs desecrated, young woman gang-raped

Muslim landowners use tractors to plough over a Christian cemetery in order to seize the land illegally. A 29-year-old mother is drugged and raped by six men. In both cases, police covers up for the culprits. Government must act, Faisalabad priest says.
 
Faisalabad (AsiaNews) – Christian tombs were recently desecrated and a young Christian woman was gang-raped for an entire night. In both cases, police refused to file a First Information Report, allowing the culprits to escape justice. These are examples of the ordinary violence visited upon Pakistan’s Christian minority. Whether it involves Christian-owned land and property or individuals who are targeted because they are defenceless, victims will not find justice with the country’s legal system. Gradually, Pakistan’s ‘Islamisation’ slowly progresses, especially in the densely populated province of Punjab.

"Big Oil" Profits Average 5.7 Cents On The Dollar

Posted by Brian
"Big Oil" vs "Big Bureaucracy"
When politicians and their standard bearers, the mainstream media, speak of "obscene" profits by the oil industry they invariably frame their argument in terms of dollars.  Lots of dollars. Billions of dollars.  But, as a percentage of gross income, how much do the oil companies actually take in?  For that matter, how much does the federal government take in from the same gallon of gasoline?
Liberal Democrats (which is virtually all Democrats, anymore), the media, and RINO Republicans love to trot out quarterly earnings statements from the oil companies to "prove" how much the "eeevil" oil barons are screwing you.  But the fact is this: Oil companies make far less, as a percentage of gross, than most other industries.  The take in a lot of dollars because they are multi-national companies which do business all over the world.  And, the sell a lot of their product. But their total margin at the end of the day is only 5.7 cents for every dollar of gas pumped - or 22.8 cents at $4 a gallon.  Compare that to the 56 cents that the federal government confiscates from each gallon sold, of which they have zero impact in getting the fuel into your gas tank.  The government does NOT: find the oil, drill for the oil, pay for the oil, ship the oil, refine the oil, or deliver the gas to market.  It does Zip. Zero, Nada.  Yet the federal government collects 14% off the top in excise taxes alone.  This does not include state or federal sales taxes. The only thing that government contributes is higher prices through taxes, and a bureaucratic minefield of insane regulations on where to drill, when to drill, how much who can drill and God knows what else. Add to this the fact that the government and environmental groups have stood in the way of companies building any new oil refineries since the 1970's, creating a virtual cap on the amount of gas that can be refined, artificially affecting the supply component of supply and demand.
Finally, the big oil executives do not own the oil companies.  This is the impression that those in the media and grandstanding politicians want the public to believe.  They bring the CEO's before Congress to grill them in hearings (media circus's to allow politicians to show us how much they "care"), and hold investigations into price gouging by the oil companies (which in every instance has exonerated the oil companies).  The truth is that the public own the vast majority of the oil companies, through 4011K's, mutual funds and individual stock investors.
If you are upset with high gas prices, maybe it's time to get upset with "Big Bureaucracy".

Who Owns ‘Big Oil'? Not Who You Think

(CNSNews.com) -- Armed with a Power Point presentation to illustrate the state of American energy, John Felmy, chief economist at the American Petroleum Institute (API), said the majority of “big oil” and natural gas ownership is in good hands – the hands of the American people.


According to a report published in 2007 by Sonecon, an economic advisory firm that analyses U.S. markets and public policy, corporate management owns only 1.5 percent of the U.S. oil and natural gas industry.

The report cited founding member Emad Abdel Sattar as saying that party "believes in vesting all powers in the president after selecting him or her carefully," and that "preparations are underway to choose the most competent person to represent the party."

Homophobic CAIR to Napolitano: Investigate HSA Trainers for Islamophobia

Posted by Brian
Nihad Awad, whose group CAIR, has given financial support to the terrorist group Hamas, is demanding that Janet Napolitano begin a witch hunt for "islamophobic" trainers who instruct national security personnel.
Apparently, singling out white-haired grandmothers and 4-year olds for TSA pat-downs, while swarthy men in the twenties and thirties, carrying Quran's and  prayer rugs, walking through security with nary a glance is not politically correct enough for the faux moderate CAIR group.
This is nothing more than a blatant attempt by CAIR to further intimidate the weak-kneed Napolitano into giving even less attention to those who want to do harm to the United States.
Profiling of individuals who meet a certain age (18-mid 40's), gender (male), and ethnic appearance (middle eastern), combined with other physical cues is not Islamophobic - it's damn smart.
Napolitano should tell this Awad that until Islam stops calling for the stoning of homosexuals (Homophobia), the beating and disfiguring of women for "crimes" (like allowing their face to be shown in public), the genital mutilation of women (clitorectomies), "honor" killings for dating non-Muslims, and "justice" that other civilized people stopped centuries ago, he can go to hell.
The question is, will Napolitano cave and simply bend over backwards for CAIR, while the rest of us have to bend over forward for the TSA screeners?

California Elementary "Gender Diversity" CourseTeaches More Than Two Gender Options

Posted by Brian
We're no longer male or female.  Now we are multi-sexual.  At least that is what some "gender diversity" classes are teaching to our kids
Not only is Redwood Heights Elementary School in Oaland California teaching that gender diversity courses to elementarty school children, the course is not one in which parents can have their children opt out of.  The school is claiming that this is in response to parent requests of a "warm, welcoming, safe, and caring environment" for their children at school, said school Principal Sara Stone.
I seriously doubt that the parents were asking the school to start up a LGBT studies program for their K-6 children.  The school and its spokespeople can try to spin this as "education", and that it is all about making the school safer all they want.  That is crap. This is about furthering the leftist indoctrination of our children by the education system here in California. 
Schools are becoming nothing but little Orwellian reeducation camps. Children here are constantly bombarded with curriculum that skews history, and teaches what a crappy place the United States is.  According to many of those in the educational hoi poloi, America is the root cause of all that is wrong with the world. The educational system has become a cesspool of  Marxist thought.
Political correctness is the order of the day in most California schools and it is being rammed down the throat of both parents and children by teachers, administrators and the California Teachers Association union. Fortunately, some of the parents are beginning to see this and beginning to speak out. 
By the way, the California Teachers Association is covering the cost of this gender diversity "education" with a $1500 grant.

Obama State Department: Jerusalem Not Part Of Israel?

Posted by Brian
The chasm between what the Obama Administration says, and what they do regarding Israel continues to grow, with each apparent step forward being countered by either Presidential speeches, or documents such as this being discovered at the State Department.

Does Obama Think Jerusalem is Outside Israel?

by Gil Ronen
h/t to Arutz Sheva

The United States State Department is standing behind the wording of an official statement that implied that Jerusalem – including its western parts - is not a part of Israel. Against the backdrop of President Barack Obama's speech calling on Israel to return to the 1949 Armistice lines, the statement's implications appear more alarming.


The May 18 statement was cited in a Weekly Standard column by Eliot Abrams, a former foreign policy advisor for presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.

Abrams wrote:

“In what country is the Knesset?… [I]t seems that this question has stumped the State Department. It does not know or will not say what country the Knesset is in, nor—one must assume—does it know what country the Prime Minister’s Office, the Israel Museum, or especially the Western Wall are in.

DNC Chairwoman Wasserman-Schultz Tries To Put Gag On Republican Jewish Coalition

Posted by Brian
Wasserman-Schultz, perhaps an even bigger partisan hack than former DNC Chair Howard Dean (if that's possible), showed her political ass in a meeting with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu.  Clearly she is desperate in trying to effectively stifle debate in the Jewish community, as the Obama Administration and many in the Democrat leadership have a lukewarm, if not outright hostile, relationship with Israel and Benjamin Netanyahu.  She must know that sooner or later, many in the Jewish community are no longer going to give blind allegiance to a party that continues to spit in the eye of Israel and the American Jewish community. 

DNC chair, Wasserman Schultz, tries to use Netanyahu as political human shield

By: MataHarley

In an unbelievably tactless act, DNC Chairwoman, Rep Debbie Wasserman-Schultz used a joint delegates meeting between Israeli PM, Benjamin Netanhayu, and the Republican Jewish Coalition and the National Jewish Democratic Council as a human shield for political campaigning in the upcoming Presidential election. With the PM present, Wasserman Schultz point blank asked the RJC to “pledge” they would refrain from using Israel as a campaign issue. Matt Brooks, RJC executive director, likened it to hijacking “these meeting in order to, in front of the prime minister, put a gag order in effect to prevent us from speaking out on Israel.”

It is highly unusual for a sitting DNC chair to try to use a foreign prime minister to pressure another political group to act in a way that she deems appropriate. But this seems to have been what happened yesterday.

Asked about Netanyahu’s reaction, Brooks said Netanyahu was “clearly uncomfortable and at one point said, ‘do you guys want me to leave the room and give you guys some privacy?’”

Great piece from The Black Sphere, highlighting the inherrent racism from those on the left, who in their own ignorance and elitism, fail to see that it is their supposed "compassion" which gives away their racist views.

Racist Garafolo To The Rescue

As a black man, I love it when ignorant white women like Janeane Garofalo speak for all blacks. It’s thrilling to me that Janeane would take time out of her busy Hollyweird life to protect me and my peeps — the downtrodden, the oppressed…the lowly Negro.


For her efforts, I thank Garofalo, and anoint her Janeane Garofalo: White Chick Protector of the Lowly Negro. Who better than she to offer such protection? Garofalo, after all is an American hero! And I bet you were wondering who could possibly replace the likes of Barbara Streisand or Susan Sarandon…Madonna?

Garofalo is so in touch with the black condition, that she is uniquely qualified to assess and understand my people’s “condition.” Her intimate knowledge of blacks allows her to interpret how blacks think, and then translate “black-think” for the rest of America. “Cuz Lawd knows, we kaints do dis for ourselfs.”

Overreaching Government -First, Feds Go After Raw Milk. Now Rabbits

Posted by Brian

Many of us have heard of the USDA going after Amish farmers selling raw, unpasteurized milk.  In the Amish case, there were "zero"complaints of quality, illness from drinking the milk, or any other problems.  It's that it isn't pasteurized.  Now the USDA has set its sight on rabbits.
This is a prime example of government bureaucracies with too much power, obscure rules, and overzealous agents.  And it's only going to get worse.
The USDA is turning into the agricultural version of the EPA and OSHA. These are Departments that create rules and regulations with virually no oversight.  They in essence are able to creat laws out of this air, effectively doing the job that Congress is elected to do, and put fines, penalties, and even legal weight with jail sentences behind them.
A conservative Congress and President needs to be elected that will defund and dismantle a whole host these departmental bureaucracies, which are not supported by the U.S. Constitution as powers that have been delegated to the Federal Government.
Or, maybe the USDA is worried these rabbits pose a threat to national security and they are just nipping a rabbit sleeper cell in the bud.

It started out as a hobby, a way for the Dollarhite family in Nixa, Mo., to teach a teenage son responsibility. Like a lemonade stand.

But now, selling a few hundred rabbits over two years has provoked the heavy hand of the federal government to the tune of a $90,643 fine. The fine was levied more than a year after authorities contacted family members, prompting them to immediately halt their part-time business and liquidate their equipment.

The Dollarhite’s story, originally picked up by conservative blogger Bob McCarty, has turned into a call to arms for critics of the government’s reach and now has both Democratic and Republican lawmakers vowing to intervene.

Crony Capitalism: Companies Owe Millions, Receive Billions in Stimulus Funds

Tax cheats among recipients of stimulus money

(AP) – 5 hours ago


WASHINGTON (AP) — Thousands of companies that cashed in on President Barack Obama's economic stimulus package owed the government millions in unpaid taxes, congressional investigators have found.

The Government Accountability Office, in a report being released Tuesday, said at least 3,700 government contractors and nonprofit organizations that received more than $24 billion from the stimulus effort owed $757 million in back taxes as of Sept. 30, 2009, the end of the budget year.

The report said the tax delinquents accounted for nearly 6 percent of the 63,000 contractors and grantees examined, and it cautioned that the real number might be higher because the known tax debt does not measure such factors as income underreporting.

The video i took while at Fastrip on east 20th street. We huddled in the back of the store until the glass got sucked out , then ran into the walk in storage fridge. Sorry for the lack of visuals but the audio is pretty telling of how intense the storm was. The tornado hits at around 1:20 seconds.

Mark Levin - "It's So White Over There At NBC, I'm Blinded"

Posted by Brian

"The Great One", Mark Levin, took to the airwaves today and blasted mainstream news, NBC in particular, over the kneejerk response of liberals to label any critcism of President Barack Hussein Obama, as racist, or having racial undertones.
Since the 2008 campaign, the media and Hollywood liberal elites have found the Klan in every disparaging remark about Barack Obama or his policies.  The final straw for Levin was David Gregory's race-baiting question to Newt Gingrich, insinuating that Gingrich's comment that Obama is the "food stamp President" as having racial undertones. The leap in illogic was stunning and Levin had had enough of the hypocrisy.
Watch the video below of Mark's discussion with Neil Cavuto on Fox News as the Great One unloads both barrels on the liberals.

Oliver Stone: "Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people

Posted by Brian

What little shred of respect I may have had for Oliver Stone as a director has evaporated. He has proven to be a writer and producer of left-wing conspiracies and propaganda in movies such as "Born On The Fourth Of July", Platoon, and his other films, but I would give him leeway for "artistic" license.  But, trying to resurrect the image of a man who oversaw a systematic slaughter of millions of Jews is beyond the pale.  Stone has gone round the bend and is now a full-fledged leftist propaganda minister. Joseph Goebbels would be proud.

Oliver Stone: Jewish control of the media is preventing free Holocaust debate
Outspoken Hollywood director says new film aims to put Adolf Hitler, who he has called an 'easy scapegoat' in the past, in his due historical context.

By Haaretz Service

Jewish control of the media is preventing an open discussion of the Holocaust, prominent Hollywood director Oliver Stone told the Sunday Times, adding that the U.S. Jewish lobby was controlling Washington's foreign policy for years.

In the Sunday interview, Stone reportedly said U.S. public opinion was focused on the Holocaust as a result of the "Jewish domination of the media," adding that an upcoming film of him aims to put Adolf Hitler and Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin "in context."

Iran: Bushehr nuclear power plant 'successfully launched'

Iranian FM Ali Akbar Salehi says plant would become fully operational within weeks; plant's launch was postponed by a few months in wake of an apparent Stuxnet virus attack.

By Haaretz Service

Iran's nuclear power plant in Bushehr has been put online, Iranian Foreign Minister said on Wednesday, adding that the plant would become fully operational within several weeks.

The plant's operation was delayed by several months after last year Iranian officials estimated that the Stuxnet virus had hit Bushehr staff computers, adding, however, that the cyber attack did not affect major systems.

Obama’s plan for America is President-assisted suicide

Great Article from Canada Free Press

Totalitarian democracy, Obama’s plan for “disorganizing” America

The United States is rapidly becoming a totalitarian democracy.


As described by Israeli historian J. L. Talmon, totalitarian democracy is a political system in which lawfully elected representatives rule a nation state whose citizens, although granted the right to vote, have little or no participation in the decision-making process of government.

In a totalitarian democracy, the government is transformed from one based on traditional values and articles of faith into one in which social utility takes absolute precedence.

Obama tries to fire up frustrated supporters

Has the Bamster's Frequent Trips to the Links Undermined His Support?
 WASHINGTON (AP) - Angling for a second term, President Barack Obama tried to fire up supporters Monday night, saying failure to get everything they want as fast as they want should motivate and not dissuade them.


Liberals and other key Obama supporters have voiced frustration with the president on a number of issues, from his compromise with Republicans on tax cuts to failure to deliver a promised overhaul of the immigration system.

Media Bias: Islamic Attacks On Egyptian Coptic Christians Reported As Sectarian Clashes

An Ill Season: The Arab Spring Unleashes Islamists on Egyptian Christians


By Andrew McCarthy
May 16, 2011

Screaming “With our blood and soul, we will defend you, Islam,” jihadists stormed the Virgin Mary Church in northwest Cairo last weekend. They torched the Coptic Christian house of worship, burned the nearby homes of two Copt families to the ground, attacked a residential complex, killed a dozen people, and wounded more than 200: just another day in this spontaneous democratic uprising by Muslim hearts yearning for freedom.

In the delusional vocabulary of the “Arab Spring,” this particular episode is known as a sectarian “clash.” That was the Washington Post’s take. Its headline reads “12 dead in Egypt as Christians and Muslims clash” — in the same way, one supposes, that a mugger’s fist can be said to “clash” with his victim’s face. The story goes on, in nauseating “cycle of violence” style, to describe “clashes between Muslims and Coptic Christians” that “left” 12 dead, dozens more wounded, “and a church charred” — as if it were not crystal clear who were the clashers and who were the clashees, as if the church were somehow combusted into a flaming heap without some readily identifiable actors having done the charring.
