Our first Kenyan Muslim Communist Pope



I wonder what the Pope actually said to make Palin think he was a liberal. Was it his opposition to the legalization of cannabis, seeing that as part of pursuing "passing idols" ?

Maybe it was when the Pope participated in a pro-life march in Rome, and asked its participants to protect human life "from the moment of conception".

Was it when he said the confessional was "not a torture chamber but the place in which the Lord's mercy motivates us to do better." ?

Maybe it was when the Pope said women were "special" and fundamentally different from men, and that the spread of gay marriage was the work of the devil.

Perhaps it was when he said the "cult of money" was making people miserable, placing him squarely in the camp of such famous liberals as St. Paul, who told Timothy the love of money was the root of all evil.

Maybe it was when the Pope said the schools in Buenos Aires were teaching a "cock and bull story" when they hold that slavery has been abolished in the city, forgetting the clandestine sweatshops where immigrants are forbidden to leave, and girls are kidnapped to be forced into prostitution.

Perhaps Palin was suspicious of the Pope's condemnation of the profits made by traffickers who carry those desperate migrants in unsafe boats.

Or maybe the Pope, like Rudy Giuliani, is just too much in favor of law and order, like when he beatified Fr. Pino Puglisi, a priest killed on the orders of Cosa Nostra, and used the opportunity to condemn the mafia, who, after all, in the words of Don Barzini from the Godfather, are hardly communists.

    Other than on a couple specific social issues the Catholic Church tends to be for the most part 'liberal' these days.

    However, face it, Palin would likely consider Genghis Khan a liberal. The women is a nitwit.

    She continued: "I'm kinda trying to follow what his agenda is. You know he came out with a couple of things in the media but again I'm not one to trust the media's interpretation of somebody's message but having read through media outlets," the former Governor of Alaska said.

      Palin's personal experience with the press was toxic to say the least.

      Now that we all have had time to watch the press be totally in the tank for Obama since his crowning it's not an unwise thing to say about finding out what some actually said.

      After all this thread as well has misquoted Palin.

      If she's as ignorant as you claim there would be no reason to slander her or make things up, as this thread has done.

    1. fter her graduation, Sarah returned to Alaska and worked on the sports desk of Anchorage television station KTUU. On weekends, she'd sometimes appear on camera, delivering sports reports during the 10:00 PM newscast.

      Her attitude toward people of color was evolving. In Anchorage, she even dated black men. A friend says, "Sarah and her sisters had a fetish for black guys for a while."

      Each year, over Thanksgiving weekend, the University of Alaska hosted a basketball tournament called the Great Alaska Shootout, featuring some of the country's best teams. In 1987, one of the top squads to visit Anchorage was the University of Michigan, led by six-foot-eight junior Glen Rice, number 41.

      Rice would lead Michigan to the NCAA Championship in 1989, appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated and setting a scoring record for the NCAA tournament that stands today. After graduating from Michigan as the school's all-time leading scorer, he starred in the NBA for fifteen years.

      Whether in her professional capacity as a sports reporter or simply as a basketball groupie who'd begun to find black men attractive, Sarah linked up with the Rice during the weekend tournament. One friend recalls, "They went out. I suspect it was more than that. I can't say I know they had sex, but I remember ,,,
      Sarah feeling pretty good that she'd been with a black basketball star."

  6. There are no stars in the Obama cabinet today, men and women of independent stature and outlook. It was after a walk on the White House grounds with his chief of staff, Denis McDonough, that Mr. Obama called off the attacks on the Syrian regime that he had threatened.

    ...

    Valerie Jarrett, the president's most trusted, probably most powerful, aide, once said in admiration that Mr. Obama has been bored his whole life. The implication was that he is above things, a man alone, and anointed.

    Perhaps this moment—a presidency coming apart, the incompetent social engineering of an entire health-care system—will now claim Mr. Obama's attention.

  9. I guess you have always wondered who first uttered the phrase - "You've got to be shitting me."


    Well it just so happens it originated through the Father of America, way back when George Washington was crossing the Delaware river with his troops.


    There were 33 men in Washington's boat. It was extremely dark and storming furiously and the water was tossing them about.


    Finally, Washington grabbed Corporal Raymond Dicks and stationed him at the front of the boat with a lantern. He ordered him to keep swinging it, so they could see where they were heading.


    Corporal Dicks, through driving rain and cold, continued swinging the lantern back and forth, back and forth.


    Then a big gust of wind and a wave hit and threw the Corporal and his lantern into the Delaware. Washington and his troops searched for nearly an hour trying to find him, but to no avail. All of them felt terrible, for the Corporal had been one of their favorites.


    Sometime later, Washington and his troops landed on the other side, wet and totally exhausted. He rallied the troops and told them that they must go on.


    Another hour later one of his men said, 'General, I see lights ahead.'


    They trudged toward the lights and came upon a huge house.


    What they didn't know was that this was a house of ill repute, hidden in the forest to serve all who came.


    General Washington pounded on the door, his men crowding around him.


    The door swung open and much to his surprise stood a beautiful woman.


    A huge smile came across her face to see so many men standing there.


    Washington was the first to speak, 'Madam, I am General George Washington and these are my men. We are tired, wet, exhausted, and desperately need warmth and comfort.'


    Again, the Madam looked at all the men standing there and with a broad smile on her face said, 'Well, General, you have come to the right place.


    We can surely give you warmth and comfort. How many men do you have?'


    Washington replied, 'Well, Madam, there are 33 men - actually 32 of us without Dicks.'


    And the Madam said, 'You've got to be shitting me.'

  11. "Here are some numbers I put together, based on Steven Kopits’ work:

    The cumulative increase in global crude oil (C+C) production, in the seven year period from 1998 to 2005, in excess of what we would have produced at the 1998 production rate of 67.0 mbpd (million barrels per day, EIA) was 6.3 Gb (billion barrels).

    Steven Kopits estimated that cumulative global upstream (oil related) capital costs were $1.5 Trillion in the seven years from 1998 to 2005. So, the total capital cost per cumulative barrel of increase in production from 1998 to 2005 (relative to 1998) was about $300 per barrel.

    Of course, the total upstream capital expenditures were used to both offset declines from existing production and to show a net increase in production, but I am primarily interested in the difference between the 1998 to 2005 increase in global crude oil production and the 2005 to 2012 increase in global crude oil production.

    The cumulative increase in the global crude oil (C+C) production, in the seven year period from 2005 to 2012 in excess of what we would have produced at the 2005 production rate of 73.6 mbpd (million barrels per day, EIA) was 0.3 Gb (billion barrels).

    Steven Kopits estimated that cumulative global upstream capital costs were $3.5 Trillion in the seven years from 2005 to 2012. So, the total capital cost per cumulative barrel of increase in production from 2005 to 2012 (relative to 2005) was about $11,700 per barrel.

    Or, a 133% increase in capital costs from the 1998 to 2005 time period to the 2005 to 2012 time period resulted in a 95% decline in the cumulative increase in crude oil production, from the first seven year period to the second seven year period.

    Another way to put it is that it cost the global industry 39 times as much money to add one barrel of increased cumulative production from 2005 to 2012, as they spent to add one barrel of increased cumulative production from 1998 to 2005.

    Of course, annual Brent crude oil prices rose at an average rate of about 15%/year from 1998 to 2012.

    And of course, we have seen a material post-2005 decline in Global Net Exports of oil."

  13. Idaho Lawmaker Mark Patterson Smeared as “Rapist” For Standing Up Against Federal Gun Grab?


    An incredible story is developing in Idaho. It is a story of corruption, back room deals, huge amounts of taxpayer money hidden away from public view, a 41-year-old rape case just coming to light, and the character assassination of a State Representative who has attempted to break federal control over local law enforcement.

    IT ALL SURROUNDS GUN RIGHTS

    The story begins in the last Idaho legislative session during 2013 when State Representative Mark Patterson put a simple four-paragraph bill before the legislature. House Bill 219 blocks Idaho sheriffs and police from participating in firearms seizures by federal agents. The text of the bill is simple: if Idaho law enforcement assist federal agents in seizing lawfully owned firearms from residents of Idaho, those sheriffs and police will be guilty of a misdemeanor crime, resulting in a small fine and jail time.

    Patterson says the bill was drafted at the request of law enforcement officers who wanted protection against any Federal order for firearm confiscation. In fact, 40 of the 44 sheriffs in the state of Idaho put their support behind the bill, as did the NRA, Larry Pratt's Gun Owners of America, and the Idaho Fraternal Order of Police. However, the Idaho Sheriffs' Association (ISA) did not support the bill. Again, 40 of the state's 44 sheriffs supported the bill. Among those who did not was Ada County Sheriff Gary Raney, who happens to be the President of the Idaho Sheriffs' Association.

    PROTECTING FEDERAL DOLLARS

    During the legislative session, while Sheriff Raney publicly expressed his disagreement with House Bill 219, he was reportedly told by many other sheriffs not to use the ISA to try to stop 219 from becoming law. Sheriff Raney seemingly listened, and the ISA officially retained a "neutral" position on House Bill 219. However, while the ISA officially retained that position, Mike Kane, the lobbyist for the ISA, and Vaughn Killeen, the former Sheriff of Ada County and Executive Director of ISA, began lobbying the legislature to vote against 219.

    They did so while failing to comply with Idaho lobbying disclosure laws. Secretary of State Ben Ysursa required Killeen to register as a lobbyist (he had not been), and Kane was twice forced to amend his lobbying report, which originally contained no mention of 219.

    1. WHY THE OPPOSITION TO 219?

      According to what Kane and Killeen were reportedly telling lawmakers, if Idaho were to pass this law, it could negatively affect the state's relationship with the Feds. According to what State Rep. Judy Boyle told the Idaho Statesman, Sheriff Raney himself complained "that the bill would dismantle local-federal cooperation and would cost local law enforcement valuable revenue under asset forfeiture laws for drug and gang cases."

      And so the lobbying was underway. It was State Rep. Patterson who exposed the illegal lobbying effort, but Patterson did not leave the issue there. After proving that illegal lobbying was taking place, he went a step further and demanded details on who paid for that lobbying.

      WERE TAXPAYERS SUBSIDIZING LOBBYING EFFORTS?
      The issue of taxpayer money is intriguing. According to an IRS 990 report, the Idaho Sheriffs' Association is a non-profit, 501c3 organization that took in nearly $900,000 in revenue last year. Rep. Patterson wants to know how much of that money is public money and how much is private. But getting those numbers is very difficult because the organization is not required to publicly disclose that information.

      "They funnel millions of dollars of taxpayer dollars and they refuse to tell anyone what they do. They don't have to reveal publicly what they do with that money, but it is taxpayer money. There is no transparency and no accountability," says Rep. Patterson, who spoke to me by telephone.

      Clearly, the lines between public and private money here are blurred. For instance, each of the 44 sheriff's departments in Idaho has a line item in their budgets that helps to support the ISA. That money is taxpayer money. In addition, the DEA and other federal law enforcement contribute public money to the organization, which is treated as a private non-profit.

      Now, multiple organizations take in and use a mix of public/private dollars. For example, there is the Idaho Association of Counties, with revenue of $1.8 million dollars in 2010; or the Association of Idaho Cities; or the Idaho Association of Highway Districts; as well as non-profits that represent county commissioners, prosecutors, school boards, etc.

      The lobbying against House Bill 219 raised questions for Rep. Patterson about how taxpayer money is being used in Idaho, but it raises bigger questions for the US. Every state in our country has organizations similar to those in Idaho, but few people realize these are private non-profits that are using public money to support themselves, using a combination of public/private money to pay salaries, and even lobbying state legislatures in ways the public might not want.

      On May 22, 2013 Rep. Patterson sent a letter to the ISA and Sheriff Raney, demanding to see a list of what money was public and what money was private. On the very same day, Rep. Patterson was notified that the sheriff was looking into allegations that Patterson lied on his concealed carry permit application in 2007, and again during his renewal in 2012, by not disclosing a 41-year-old sexual assault case in which Patterson had been charged. This case was detailed in an Idaho Statesman news article on Sunday.

    2. THE SEX ASSAULT CASE

      It was 1974 when a 20-year-old Mark Patterson was charged in Tampa, Florida with assault and forcible rape. Patterson had allegedly forced a 46-year-old mother of five from her car and into his apartment where he threatened to sic his Doberman pinscher on her if she did not yield to his sexual assault.

      Patterson was arrested, charged, and held in jail on the charges. After a short time in jail, Patterson took a plea deal for the lesser charge of assault with intent to commit rape in exchange for no jail time and no fine. It is called a "withheld judgment," which means that, under Florida law, the judge "withheld guilt" and Patterson was allowed to the leave the state with his father while serving five years probation. Two years into that probation, however, Patterson claims a private investigator was able to prove that the woman in question was lying about the incident. That is why after only two years, the probation came to an end.

Detroit just had their ex-mayor, son of Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, sent away for 28 years for bribery and corruption. His best friend got 21 years, his dad got around 2 years, and various flunkies were sent up for numerous years. His mother lost her House seat over the scandals. I think there is still a lawsuit going that says the death of a stripper who was gunned down in here car was tied to secret party at the Manoogian Mansion after she got in a fight with the mayor's wife. All this trouble came to light after e-mails between Kwame and his chief of staff came to light describing their sordid affair. The investigation and trial have been going on for years now. They were supposed to be bringing him out of Milan prison today to face another trial to determine how many millions he owes the Feds.

    22. We have had past threads on how the police in the US have been 'militarized'. How it was not really considered a 'good' thing by most of us.

      It would seem that the Sheriff in Idaho, and police all around the country are receiving the funds for the transition from the Feds and from property forfeitures. This Patterson was shining a light on the process.

      I do know that in Maricopa County, Sheriff Joe 'America's Toughest Sheriff' had a similar throwdown with some of the County Supervisors. The Sheriff used police powers to harass the Supervisors that voted against his budget proposals and policies.
      He coordinated the moves with the County Attorney.. I do not think that Federal funds were the issue. It was pure partisanship, on both sides.

      In Idaho, the rapist may be on to a national 'scandal', or at least an issue regarding Federal monies to focus upon, in regards to rolling back the militarization of the local police.

    Syria: Al-Qaeda-linked jihadis apologize after cutting off head of wrong person

    Put this down under jihad comedy, the ji-ha-ha-d, except that, well, there is nothing to laugh about when one realizes that the victim's head cannot, unfortunately, be reattached. A culture of violence and hatred is inevitably going to claim innocent victims, including its own comrades in arms. "Al-Qaeda-linked rebels apologise after cutting off head of wrong person," by Richard Spencer for the Telegraph, November 14 (thanks to Daniel):

    Militant Islamist rebels in Syria linked to al-Qaeda have asked for "understanding and forgiveness" for cutting off and putting on display the wrong man's head.

    In a public appearance filmed and posted online, members of Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, one brandishing a knife, held up a bearded head before a crowd in Aleppo. They triumphantly described the execution of what they said was a member of an Iraqi Shia militia fighting for President Bashar al-Assad.

    But the head was recognised from the video as originally belonging to a member of Ahrar al-Sham, a Sunni Islamist rebel group that often fights alongside ISIS though it does not share its al-Qaeda ideology.

    After inquiries, an ISIS spokesman admitted he was Mohammed Fares, an Ahrar commander reported missing some days ago. This could not be independently confirmed, but in an earlier video of a speech by Mr Fares he bears a close resemblance to the severed head in the later video.

    The Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, which monitors deaths in the Syrian conflict, and several activists on social media said that ISIS fighters misunderstood comments Mr Fares made referring to the Imams Ali and Hussein, the founding fathers of Shiism.

    An ISIS spokesman, Omar al-Qahtani, confirmed that Mr Fares had been injured and, thinking he had been captured by members of a Shia militia against which he was fighting, asked them to kill him in terms misunderstood by the ISIS members in fact taking him to hospital.

    It is thought he was wounded in the battle for Base 80, a military zone being fought over near Aleppo.

    In explaining the error Mr al-Qahtani made reference to a story in which Mohammed said Allah would forgive a man who killed a believer in error....

    Oh, well, that's a relief.

I adopt this position for the purpose of a science fiction novel I'm trying to cook up, involving time travelers who mess up the Watergate burglary to give Tricky Dicky something else to think about besides escalating the Yom Kippur War to World War III.

      Presentialists believe the past and future do not exist, only the present, in an eternal NOW that changes. This is the position of myself and St. Augustine. The future is wide open, and the only past which endures exists in physical records (subject to redaction) and human memories. Even human memories are not stored as complete records but as simple highlights which can trigger the brain to recreate the past at will. That is why three different eyewitnesses can have five different testimonies. Politicians and religious authorities know, like Santayana did, that to repeat the mistakes of the past they must control the teaching of history.

    5. The fourth position is that neither the past nor the present nor the future are objectively real. This is liberalism.

    Money Shot:

    it cost the global industry 39 times as much money to add one barrel of increased cumulative production from 2005 to 2012, as they spent to add one barrel of increased cumulative production from 1998 to 2005.

    What has the great and wonderful Rufus done to reduce his reliance on oil, coal, and etc?

    Other than to spout a bunch of stuff about the wonders of Ethanol and buy a Flex Fuel Large Car?

    I'm 100 percent PV for electricity, Solar Water, and fill up the 98 Carolla's 11 Gal tank about 5 times a year.

    Pure Gas, thank you.

    (I think)
