Algerian Terrorists Demand Release of Blind
Sheik in Exchange for American Hostages

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/18/2013 2:35:15 PM

Shall we round up the usual YouTube suspects again, Sir Edmund Hillary Clinton? The Al Qaeda-linked raiders who are still occupying part of an Algerian gas plant offered to trade a pair of American hostages Friday for the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and another jailed terrorist. The captives being offered in exchange for blind Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and the other Islamic fanatic were not identified. But the report by the Mauritian news site ANI, which has been in almost constant contact

Could we offer to throw in Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and President Obama to sweeten the deal?

WHy isn´t this blind sheik dead? Various hostage situations keep calling for this man to be released and it seems like the thing to do is conveniently make this man die of old age, very soon.

This was what the rioting in Egypt was about. This is what the fiasco Benghazi raid was about. What are the odds the blind sheikh will be on a plane soon? And isn´t the woman scientist the chemical/bio warfare expert?

Implant a GPS / Transmitting device in his body. Trade him for Americans. Fire up a cruise missile and have it hone in on the signal. Simple plan on paper, might take some doing to make it work though.

How come so many of these fanatic muzzie leaders are blind or have one eye?

Is that some sort of mystic qualification?

Too bad Peter Falk, Sammy Davis, or Ray Charles never ran for office.

I say that we absolutely trade the blind sheik for the hostages using a "piecemeal" approach. Let´s start by sending the first piece from the neck up and follow with other pieces as the situation evolves.

The people who go to very dangerous places to work know the risks, but do it for the very high wages they receive.

I don´t mean to sound heartless, but we do not owe them a rescue, and sure as you-know-where are not going to trade a known terrorist for their freedom.

Vindicating Mitch McConnell
From the New York Times
American Spectator, by Russ Belli-Estreito    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/12/2014 7:42:25 AM     Post Reply
Headlines that Mitch McConnell wants to “crush” the Tea Party are spreading across conservative websites. But the New York Times article, which quotes McConnell, is—of shock to no one—misleading. The piece opens by providing a background of 2010 and 2012 Senate races in which conservative activist groups supported Tea Party candidates able to succeed in primaries, but unelectable in general races. The Times identifies groups such as the Senate Conservatives Fund, the Madison Project, and FreedomWorks as similar players in 2014 Senate campaigns. In Kentucky, Kansas, and Mississippi, Tea Party candidates, with help from the above-mentioned groups, are opposing incumbents—McConnell being one of

Bad decade: Malaysia

HONG KONG — Within an industry notorious for impoverishing shareholders and irking customers, Malaysia Airlines has stood out for its years of restructurings and losses. The company now has global recognition of a far more unfavorable kind after one of its jets disappeared four days ago with 239 people aboard. There has been no suggestion that the unrelenting financial pressures faced by the airline and its 19,000 employees somehow played a role in the disappearance of flight MH370 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. But the revelation this week that the jet´s co-pilot allowed two female passengers to ride

DNC literally indebted to unions

Recent fundraising figures show the RNC faring better than its DNC counterpart in just about all areas. Notably, the RNC has no debt and nearly $10 Million in cash on hand. The same, however, cannot be said for the DNC, thanks in part to some clever money shuffling among kindred spirits. In the final two months of the 2012 election cycle, the DNC was strapped for cash, and opted to take out two low interest loans totaling $15 Million. The loans were provided by Amalgamated Bank, which uses the tagline, “America’s Labor Bank” and promises to continue “the progressive traditions of its

The phrase “cooped up” won’t hold quite the same meaning much longer if Californians have their way. In 2008, voters in California inexplicably passed a proposition requiring California-based egg producers to provide either free ranges or larger cages for their hens. After concerns were raised that this would put California’s egg producers at an economic disadvantage with producers in other states, provisions were added to extend the mandate to any eggs imported from other states to be sold in California. The law is currently set to go into effect next year. However, six state attorneys general, including Alabama AG Luther Strange, have

Barry Bonds Thinks He Belongs

Scottsdale, Arizona -Barry Bonds certainly thinks he´s worthy of election to the Hall of Fame. "Without a doubt," baseball´s home run king said Monday at the San Francisco Giants´ spring training camp, where he will serve as a hitting instructor for a week. The 49-year-old Bonds spent his last 15 big league seasons with San Francisco, finishing in 2007 with 762 homers. But his final years were clouded by suspicions of performance-enhancing drug use, and the seven-time NL MVP was convicted of one obstruction count in April 2011 by a jury that found an answer he gave was criminally evasive during 2003 testimony

Why is it so expensive to

I t´s become commonplace to note that U.S. infrastructure costs are very high. What is less appreciated is the staggering scale of the difference between American infrastructure costs and those of other nations. Like our health care, U.S. infrastructure isn´t just a tad higher than the next most expensive country — we pay something like twice as much as our closest peer (usually the U.K., which is itself a very expensive place). And when you compare America to, say, Spain, we´re talking order-of-magnitude differences. In other words, Spain, a developed market democracy, gets 10 to 20 times as much infrastructure for its

There is solid evidence that the Philadelphia office of the Census Bureau didn’t cheat on unemployment data only in 2010. The scam continued until I exposed it this past November. On Nov. 19, I wrote a column that broke the news about Julius Buckmon, a Census enumerator — or data collector — who was conducting surveys in the Washington, DC, area for the Labor Department’s Current Population Survey (CPS). The CPS — also known as the Household Survey — is what determines the nation’s monthly unemployment rate, a number recently used by the Federal Reserve to make monetary policy and by many

FORT BRAGG, N.C. -- Attorneys for an Army general charged with sexual assault have a deadline on Tuesday to decide on a judge´s offer to plea-bargain the case with a new set of military officials. Judge Col. James Pohl made the offer after finding evidence that the case against Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair may have been improperly influenced by political concerns. His decision threatened to take the case out of the hands of current prosecutors and gave Sinclair´s lawyers another shot at effectively stripping away the most serious charges. While Pohl declined to dismiss the charges, Sinclair´s lead lawyer

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- One of the two men traveling on a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner with a stolen passport was a 19-year-old Iranian man believed to be trying to migrate to Germany, and had no terror links, police said Tuesday. The announcement was the first certain piece of news in what has become a baffling mystery over the fate of flight MH370. On Tuesday, baffled authorities expanded their search for the Boeing 777 on the opposite side of the country´s coast from where it disappeared days ago with 239 people on board.

The federal government has lost track of tens of thousands of foreign students who came to the U.S. to study and then took jobs, often in violation of the terms of their visas, according to a new internal audit. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement doesn’t even consistently collect information or have the tools to monitor all of the foreign students who take part in the optional practical training (OPT) program, the Government Accountability Office said in a new report released late Friday. “The problems with OPT are extensive and serious. The report not only calls into question the department’s oversight of the program,

A federal judge ruled that Michael C. Skakel’s libel claim could proceed against the television personality Nancy Grace and her associates over comments made on her current affairs show that falsely suggested DNA evidence tied him to Martha Moxley’s 1975 murder. In a 27-page ruling that came down late Friday in Hartford, Judge Vanessa L. Bryant of United States District Court denied the defendants’ motion to dismiss, clearing the way for Mr. Skakel’s civil complaint to move forward. The request to dismiss had been brought by Ms. Grace; Beth Karas, a legal commentator; and the program’s producers at Time Warner and

Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region.

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state. As for Cinque and the exchange with

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

Madison police say three men planned a home invasion, but broke into the wrong home on Quincy Avenue on the north side around 6 a.m. on February 23. Police say the suspects were aware it was not the intended home, but they proceeded to violently attack the two victims who had been sleeping. The suspects are accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting the woman who was six months pregnant. "I can tell you that in my 27-plus years of

A Manhattan trader was killed Tuesday morning by a speeding Long Island Rail Road commuter train, marking at least the seventh suicide of a financial professional this year. Edmund (Eddie) Reilly, 47, a trader at Midtown’s Vertical Group, jumped in front of an LIRR train at 6 a.m. near the Syosset train station. He was declared dead at the scene. Reilly’s identity was confirmed by Salvatore Arena, an LIRR spokesperson, who said an investigation into the incident was continuing. Passengers on the west-bound express train told MTA investigators they saw a man standing by the tracks before he jumped in
