You would think that police officers who know they’re being filmed by their own dashboard camera would be smart enough not to plant drugs on someone right in front of the camera.

    Obama should offer to smoke a bowl with these cops. They obviously keep the good stuff for themselves.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 30% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-six percent (36%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index

    The mirage of lots of free stuff being phoney will keep these poll numbers down.
    President “Feelgood” has oversold himself.
    He is being disected.
    The emporer has no clothes!

    Paramilitary troops patrolled the streets of a town in eastern Pakistan yesterday after Muslim radicals burned to death eight members of a Christian family, raising fears of violence spreading to other areas.

    Hundreds of armed supporters of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, an outlawed Islamic militant group, burned dozens of Christian homes in Gojra over the weekend after allegations that a copy of the Koran had been defiled.

    The mob opened fire indiscriminately, threw gas bombs and looted houses as thousands of frightened Christians ran for safety. “They were shouting anti-Christian slogans and attacked our houses,” Rafiq Masih, a resident of the predominantly Christian colony, said. Residents said that police stood aside while the mob went on the rampage. “We kept begging for protection, but police did not take action,” Masih said.

    Police and local officials said that at least eight people, including four women and a child, were killed in the fires. Two others died of gunshot wounds. Residents said that the casualties were much higher; one claimed that the number of dead could be in the dozens as many bodies were still buried under the rubble. Shahbaz Bhatti, the Minister for Minorities, said that 40 Christian homes were torched in rioting. He said there was no truth to allegations that a Koran had been defiled, and accused the police of ignoring his appeal to provide protection to Christians.

    Oh yeah, it’s only Christian people…right?
    Your pro-Muslim, anti-Christian faces are pathetic. Just ignore the story and keep “conversing” with the Radical Muslim’s while more & more innocent people die!

    KABUL — The Taliban killed at least 10 people and critically injured a local police chief in western Afghanistan’s main city on Monday with a remote-controlled bomb hidden in a trash can, officials said.

    The bomb was set on a crowded street near a fruit market in Herat. It killed 10 civilians and two police, according to Noor Khan Nekzad, a spokesman for the Herat provincial police.

    CARACAS, Venezuela — The government of President Hugo Chavez has seized control of two of Venezuela’s largest coffee processing plants and threatens to expropriate the businesses.

    Commerce Minister Eduardo Saman says officials suspect that Fama de America and Madrid might be illegally smuggling coffee out of the country to sell it at higher prices.

    Well Lee here’s more “batshit” for you.

    Here we view an interesting dichotomy of thought. Cambridge Police Sergeant James Crowley, the one called a racist by Dr Gates, is the only real class act in this picture. See how he helps the handicapped Professor Gates down the stairs, while everyone can see “the messiah”, not paying any attention to his great friend and absolutely oblivious of his great friend’s walking infirmity strides ahead? But wasn’t “the messiah” a fellow victim of self-defined racial profiling? Why isn’t he helping his great friend? Wouldn’t that be the best picture?

    But, for you pictures don’t matter much, only what you feel is correct between those pointy leetle ears…

    Looks like Glenn Beck was right after all. The Administration is removing the application page which Glenn Beck identified and Lee went to whack job TV kook-aid web site to post “his link”.




    So will the HA Libtardo morons now attack the administration for removing the offending application page Glenn Beck identified?

    You and all your favrit web sites are a bunch of loons! So much for that “conspiracy” theory you fool!


    Now are they gonna change the dealership agreements of those who agreed to the proposed search from the old application page?

    Puddybud is traveling TRAVELING spews:

    Now have the HA Libtardos been counting all these “czars”? If GWBush created all these czars the HA Libtardos would be going apoplectic. There are as many czars as presidents in the great history of our nation. And what do we know about these czars?

    Well we know Van Jones is a communist. Van was arrested during a demonstration after the Rodney King verdict. Remember can’t we all just get along? Later, Van said he was radicalized in jail. Van found communism and anarchism calling. Van has zero technical or business experience, but he thinks like “the messiah” so he’s a great addition.

    So Puddy has a question for the HA Libtardo crowd… Should “the messiah” nominate Charles Manson could be the new ‘Family Czar’. He has jail experience. He has zero technical or business experience too. Think about his family experience?

    Visit this on WikiPedia

    “Jones was a founder and leader of Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), a multi-racial activist organization with heavy Marxist influences.

    Speaking to the East Bay Express, Jones said he first became radicalized in the wake of the 1992 Rodney King riots, during which time he was arrested.

    “I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th,” he said. “By August, I was a communist.”

    “I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’ I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.”

    Then there is John Holdren, the federal science policy czar. His official title is Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. This fool wanted to put a sterilizing agent in our water supply. Well Puddy would agree if he did it to Dummocrapt water supplies.

    In the book Ecoscience – Population, Resources, Environment which Holdren co-authored in 1977 with Paul and Ann Ehrlich, the man now firmly in control of science policy in this country wrote:

    • Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not. Yeah that’s free choice ain’t it?
    • The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food. Yeah start in Dummocraptic neighborhoods and tell us how it works.
    • Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise. Naziism?
    • People who “contribute to social deterioration” (i.e. undesirables) “can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility” — in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized. Damn there’s that eugenics issue again clueless wondermoron. Another Dummocrapt preaching the Oliver Weldell Holmes theme.
    • A transnational “Planetary Regime” should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans’ lives — using an armed international police force. Gosh sound like Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mussolini, Hirohito all in one Dummocraptic package.

    Hmmm… Forced abortions. Mass sterilizations of dumb peeps. A “Planetary Regime” with the power of life and death over American citizens.

    [ ] Are these the tyrannical fantasies of a madman?
    [ ] A good friend of “the messiah”? Or are these merely the opinions of the person now in control of science policy in the United States?
    [ ]Or all of the above?

    Butt, since its a Dummocraptic administration no HA Lead Libtardo will say anything negative.

    Marvin, play that link again…

    Politically Incorrect spews:

    Since possession of marijuana is illegal in Tennessee, the cop involved was actually breaking the drug laws by having marijuana in his possession. He should be dismissed from the police force and suffer whatever legal punishment after he’s convicted of breaking the drug laws.

    Of course, we could do the sane thing and just legalize marijuana. That would be the best thing to do for all concerned.

    Thanks for the story, Lee. Obviously, some cops can’t be trusted.

    GBS, what did “the messiah” promise NK in return? Also by sending ex-president Clinton to NK it legitimizes The Ill One. NK wanted direct talks with the US. Now we look like losers. What will “the messiah” do for the three Americans in Iran?

    Your claim

    Thank, GOD, for President Obama and former President Clinton pulling off what NO Republican could do.

    is really strange even for you.
    First when was there a need to attempt that?
    Second why didn’t Al Gorebasm go? They worked for him.
    Third as Puddy wrote above what did “the messiah” promise?
