From neo-con tool to...Pajamas Media

Look who's slated to deliver the keynote speech at the Pajama Media launch party:

(hat tip SK)

LGF: context free content

Charles posts a picture of a sticker saying "Israel off the map now", and comments:

"Iranian 'president' Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s call for Israel to be 'wiped off the map' has struck a chord at Harvard. LGF reader JS emailed this photo of a sticker posted all over the place by a leftist group"
Interesting that CJ should be able to identify the sticker as being "posted all over the place by a leftist group" seeing as it does not bear the name of a group, website or anything else.

Is Charles simply assuming he knows who posted the sticker? Some explanation is in order, surely?

I went into the weeds again, this time at Little Green Footballs, and as expected, I found several "alternate reality" posts. I couldn't finish the thread about "Scooter" Libby's indictment but below is a fair sample of BushBot thinking, along with the needed corrections.

A political aide in Washington LIED TO

30 years in jail!

It is the Politics of Persecution
(POP) played out by the MSM

FITZGERALD: At the end of the day what appears is that Mr. Libby's story that he was at the tail end of a chain of phone calls, passing on from one reporter what he heard from another, was not true.
It was false. He was at the beginning of the chain of phone calls, the first official to disclose this information outside the government to a reporter. And then he lied about it afterwards, under oath and repeatedly.
This is a very serious matter and compromising national security information is a very serious matter. But the need to get to the bottom of what happened and whether national security was compromised by inadvertence, by recklessness, by maliciousness is extremely important. We need to know the truth. And anyone who would go into a grand jury and lie, obstruct and impede the investigation has committed a serious crime. LINK

Here we're wondering whether or not someone leaked a name
of a un-covert-CIA agent,....

Odd, when I listen to the press cover this, they constantly talk as if a spy was outed.

Harlow, the former CIA spokesman, said in an interview yesterday that he testified last year before a grand jury about conversations he had with Novak at least three days before the column was published. He said he warned Novak, in the strongest terms he was permitted to use without revealing classified information, that Wilson's wife had not authorized the mission and that if he did write about it, her name should not be revealed.
Harlow said that after Novak's call, he checked Plame's status and confirmed that she was an undercover operative. He said he called Novak back to repeat that the story Novak had related to him was wrong and that Plame's name should not be used. But he did not tell Novak directly that she was undercover because that was classified. LINK

I'm not sure how much the Ken Starr investigation cost, but
it wasn't as much as this one that didn't lead to anything

The Iran-Contra investigation cost $47.5 million. The Whitewater and other investigations cost $70 million. LINK After Independent Counsel Lawrence E. Walsh's appointment in December 1986, 14 persons were charged with criminal offenses. Eleven persons were convicted, but two convictions were overturned on appeal. Two persons were pardoned before trial and one case was dismissed when the Bush Administration declined to declassify information necessary for trial. On December 24, 1992, President Bush pardoned Caspar W. Weinberger, Duane R. Clarridge, Clair E. George, Elliott Abrams, Alan D. Fiers, Jr., and Robert C. McFarlane. LINK

Spin, spin, spin

A top aide to the vice president gets indicted by a grand jury for obstruction of justice, perjury and making false statements, and Charles Johnson of LGF fame has nothing to do but to moan about the "criminalization of politics". I mean, how dare they accuse a politician of doing something criminal? What kind of country do they think we live in? This is the USofA! Our politicians are all squeaky clean! Except that Clinton guy, he was a murdering, philandering, corrupt motherfucker. That's why we spent millions on a special prosecutor and attempts to impeach him for not living up to high Christian morality! But, you see, that's different from lying for *political* reasons. If your motivation is *political*, then you can lie, break laws, endanger secret service agents, because it's *political*, right...?

/Charles Johnson

Thursday, October 27, 2005


What do you get when you go up to people with a camera, give them a friendly look and say 'Smile'? Our friend LGF zombie gets friendly with the peace crowd and pulls off another deception.

Charles Johnson: certified idiot

Charles Johnson read about last weekend's riots in Birmingham on that well-known impartial news website, and without pausing to think he latches onto her claim that the "mainstream media ignored the story". Now we may have been watching other rolling news channels, listening to other radio stations, reading other websites and newspaper than Phillips, but we certainly didn't get the impression the MSM ignored the riots.

Neither did Google News: birmingham + riot = 507 results.

Oh well, chalk one up for stupidity, eh Charles?

'No shoot-to-kill policy' says Met chief

Eh? What is the Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Steve House on about?

Scotland Yard gave a robust defence of its tactics for dealing with suicide bombers, insisting its policy was not "shoot-to-kill" but "shoot-to-incapacitate".


"It may seem like semantics, but it is not. If you speak to anybody in central operations, they do not shoot-to-kill - they shoot to incapacitate people. The first action they take after firing a shot is to try to save the life of the person they have shot. There is no intention to kill people.
If shooting someone in the head seven times isn't shooting to kill I don't know what is. As for shooting once and then trying to save their lives, this is obviously a bald faced lie in the wake of the Jean Charles de Menezes incident. I hope he explained the policy in a far better way to the de Menezes family.

The New Iraq: Women's Rights

Ghali Hassan, writing for Counter Currents documents the erosion of women's rights in the new Iraq. It's a worrying and sobering read and yet again asks the question "What noble cause?"

Prior to the arrival of U.S. forces, Iraqi women were free to go wherever they wish and wear whatever they like. The 1970 Iraqi constitution, gave Iraqi women equity and liberty unmatched in the Muslim World. Since the U.S. invasion, Iraqi women’s rights have fallen to the lowest level in Iraq’s history. Under the new U.S.-crafted constitution, which will be put to referendum on the 15 October while the bloodbath mounts each day, women’s rights will be oppressed and the role of women in Iraqi society will be curtailed and relegated to the caring for “children and the elderly”.

Immediately after the invasion, the U.S. embarked on cultivating friendships with religious groups and clerics. The aim was the complete destruction of nationalist movements, including women’s rights movements, and replacing them with expatriate religious fanatics and criminals piggybacked from Iran, the U.S. and Britain. In the mean time the U.S. moved to liquidate any Iraqi opposition or dissent to the Occupation.


Since March 2003, Iraqi women have been brutally attacked, kidnapped and intimidated from participating in Iraqi society. The generation-old equality and liberty laws have been, replaced by Middle Ages laws that strip women of their rights and put them in the same oppressive life as women in Afghanistan, the nation which the U.S. invaded to “liberate” its oppressed women. The 1970 Iraqi constitution is not only the most progressive constitution in the Muslim World, but also the most equal. Iraqis were mentioned only as “citizens”, and Iraqi women’s rights were specifically protected.

In December 2003, the U.S.-appointed Iraqi Governing Council (IGC) – constituted mostly of the current puppet government – approved resolution 137, which will replace Iraq’s 1959 Personal Status Laws with religious law to be administered by conservative religious clerics from different religious groups with different interpretation of Islamic laws. The laws could affect women’s rights to education, employment, and freedom of movement, divorce, children custody and inheritance. The 55-member Constitutional Committee, who allegedly drafted – under the American radar – the new constitution, is only 17 per cent women. Like the January elections, the drafting of the constitution was undemocratic and lack public participation. Amid the escalation of violence, Iraqis are asked to vote on a constitution they do not understand. Many Iraqis believe “the new constitution weakens the state and strengthens religion within the government”, which can be used to suppress people’s rights and freedom in general and women’s rights in particular. Its main purpose is to legitimise the Occupation and the puppet government. Iraqis, women in particular do not need a constitution; they need peace and security.


The only hope left for Iraqis to gain their freedom and liberty is the immediate and full withdrawal of U.S. troops, and their collaborators from Iraq. The forming of an Iraqi government based on national unity and independence should provide laws that are legitimate and that guarantee human rights for all Iraqis.

Lizards hatch a murderous plan

Our good friend SK has been lurking in the lizard den recently and sent us the following dispatch, along with the question: "what exactly is Charles hosting here? "Iron Fist" who has identified himself (on LGF) as Steve Johnson, a felon from Knoxville TN, has often posted threats of violence on LGF. Seems to be fine with Charles. But really, look at this, posted today: (and note that these people have had weapons and explosives "meetups" organized through LGF)."

A good point. Read on...

And, more seriously, you see which comes first if you read their pledge. America comes second.

I will grant them this: they beat the L³eft. I honestly don't believe that America enters into the equation where the L³eft swears their allegiance.

#27 Iron Fist 10/24/2005 05:42PM PDT
#14 reaganite,

Breathing is handled by the autonomic nervous system. No thinking required.


I really believe that they see exactly what they are dealing with. Both the Muslims and the L³eftists think that those on the other side are useful idiots to be disposed of once people like thee and me are out of the way.

It could work. But if it does, I expect the Muslims to win. The L³eft will have a happy-happy, joy-joy moment where they cheer the downfall of the United States, and the Islamofascists will kill them.

For myself, if they win, well, I'll be dead. I have no intention of dying just yet. When given the choice between my death and the death of my enemy, I'll take the latter.

There's a time and place for everything. I'm just scoping out the time and place.

Beyond Abu Ghraib

Certain commentators may write off the 'torture' at Abu Ghraib as 'not serious' or 'similar to hazing' but how do they explain or justify murder? They don't. They won't. It doesn't warrant a mention.

At least 21 detainees who died while being held in U.S. custody in Iraq and Afghanistan were killed, many during or after interrogations, according to an analysis of Defense Department data by the American Civil Liberties Union.

The analysis, released Monday, looked at 44 deaths described in records obtained by the ACLU. Of those, the group characterized 21 as homicides, and said at least eight resulted from abusive techniques by military or intelligence officers, such as strangulation or "blunt force injuries," as noted in the autopsy reports.

The 44 deaths represent a partial group of the total number of prisoners who have died in U.S. custody overseas; more than 100 have died of natural and violent causes.

In one case, the report said, a detainee died after being smothered during interrogation by military intelligence officers in November 2003. In another case cited by the report, a prisoner died of asphyxiation and blunt force injuries after he was left standing, shackled to the top of a door frame, with a gag in his mouth.

One Afghan civilian, believed by the ACLU to be Abdul Wahid, died from "multiple blunt force injuries" in 2003 at a base in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, according to an autopsy report provided by the Defense Department.

Wahid, 28, was taken from his home by Afghan militia and accused of being a terrorist. The autopsy report said he died in American custody, though his father has blamed the militiamen.

The detailed list of prisoners whose deaths the report considered homicides includes two detainees who were beaten and died from "blunt force injuries" at the Bagram Airfield detention center in Afghanistan, according to the autopsies.

An Irish journalist has been kidnapped in Iraq, and while some lizards make a point of wishing for his safe return, others revert to type and call for his speedy execution. Below is a sample of comments, helpfully compiled by our friend SK:

I don't know about you guys, but I just can't get upset about a guy from a newspaper that's been supporting Hammas, Islamic Jihad and printing sympathetic articles on Islamism.

I guess it would be bad for this guy to get his head chopped and displayed on Al-Jazera. But considering how sympathetic his paper has been to the head choppers, it might bring home to the Guardian just what cultural differences we're talking about here.

#170 Iron Fist 10/19/2005 05:16PM PDT


The death of an enemy is, as Martha Stuart [sic!] says, a good thing. That it comes at the hands of the side he supports is a delicious irony. If, instead, this is staged, and he walks away to extol the virtues of his "kidnapers", well, here's hoping that a stray round puts an end to him.

202 Nosubforvictory 10/19/2005 05:41PM PDT

I hope they slice off his feces filled cranium. Do you really think his tone will change if he comes back alive? Or will he continue to work propaganda for the islamnazis? If he continues to assist the enemy it is that many more dead Iraqis and Americans. Its not personal. Its strickly business.

..and so on...

Monday, October 17, 2005


The IoS reported yesterday that those 'Iranian' bombs which have been used so successfully by Iraqi insurgents against British forces in Basra might actually have reached Hizbollah via Palestinian groups, who in turn got the knowledge from the IRA, who originally received training from...British anti-terrorism officers.

The mind boggles, but in an age where innocent Brazilians are executed at point blank on the Tube because they look a bit foreign, perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that British counter-terrorism has a dodgy history.

Thursday, October 13, 2005

On the propaganda trail are following the 'good news from Iraq' bullshit trail.

Did you know that there are five police academies in Iraq that produce over 3,500 new officers every eight weeks? Well, if you're among the millions of recipients of that "Did You Know?" e-mail proliferating on the Internet, you "know" that "fact" along with a whole lot of other good-news items about Iraq – astonishing nuggets of information like "Did you know that there are 1,192,000 cell phone subscribers in Iraq?"

I'll refrain from making yet another place on the Web where the entire list is reproduced. There are plenty of those already. But you may wonder where the list is coming from.

The urban-legend trackers at have followed e-mails of this type back to mid-2003, not long after President Bush declared "major combat operations" in Iraq completed. They write, "The earliest known antecedent appears to be a Coalition Provisional Authority briefing given by L. Paul Bremer, the U.S. presidential envoy to Iraq, on 9 October 2003."

But the "Did You Know" e-mail itself provides no links or sources to support any of its assertions. As notes, it's impossible to attach a "truth value" to such lists, "because they typically contain a mixture of fact, opinion, subjective statements, inaccuracies, and literally true but often misleading claims."

As you already know – because you're reading – one look beyond your inbox shows that there's no shortage of documented facts about conditions in Iraq. Most of them, unfortunately, are pretty grim.

To cover one's eyes and pluck one example: The Oct. 9 edition of USA Today carried a story by Rick Jervis headlined "Iraq Rebuilding Slows as U.S. Money for Projects Dries Up." From the information in that single article (which ran in a publication not known for publishing radical peacenik propaganda), you can assemble your own "Did You Know" e-mail and forward it to all your friends and foes:

Did you know that half of all Iraqi households still don't have access to clean water?

Did you know that only 8 percent of Iraqi households outside Baghdad are connected to sewage networks?

Did you know that out of 81 water and sewage treatment projects planned as part of the reconstruction effort, 68 have been abandoned?

Did you know that the power in Baghdad is out for 14 hours a day?

Did you know that 330 reconstruction contractors, mostly Iraqis, have been killed?

Did you know that a quarter out of every dollar allocated for reconstruction is being spent on security instead?

Did you know that Iraq's oil production is lower than before the 2003 war, and 46 percent lower than before the 1991 Gulf War?

Did you know that nearly $100 million in U.S. taxpayer-funded reconstruction money for Iraq is unaccounted for? [This figure is far too low. Other estimates of missing funds range from $1 billion to $8.8 billion.]

Did you know that the unemployment/underemployment rate in Iraq stands at 50 percent?

Did you know that all 11 multinational firms working through the Iraqi Project and Contracting Office have "cost-plus" contracts, which guarantee that they will be paid all of their costs, no matter how high they go, plus a profit?

Did you know that expenses for construction of one water treatment plant under a "cost plus" contract have grown from $80 million to $200 million, with taxpayers, not the contractor, making up the difference?
Read it all.

Whatever happened to...James Yee?

Back when James Yee, the one-time Muslim chaplain of Camp Delta, was charged with espionage, Charles F Johnson was all over the story, holding it up as an example of the perfidious nature of Islam and its adherents, that they would dare to infiltrate an illegal US prison on foreign soil and say/write bad things about the place.

Well, a few years down the line it turns out Mr Yee has been cleared of the espionage allegations and given an honorable discharge from the army, and the story he has to tell about the whole affair is quite interesting (RealPlayer required).

Rats leaving a sinking ship

The Financial Times has an interesting piece documenting the 'phenomena' of more and more advocates of the Iraqi war changing their minds, expressing doubts and criticising the war in Iraq.

Even among the strongest advocates in Washington of the war in Iraq there is a sense of alarm these days, with harsh criticism directed particularly at the draft constitution, which they see as a betrayal of principles and a recipe for disintegration of the Iraqi state.

Expressions of concern among conservatives and former Iraqi exiles, seen also in the rising disillusionment of the American public, reflect a widening gap with the Bush administration and its claims of “incredible political progress” in Iraq.

Over the past week, two of Washington's most influential conservative think-tanks, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and the Heritage Foundation, held conferences on Iraq where the mood among speakers, including Iraqi officials, was decidedly sombre.

Kanan Makiya, an outspoken proponent of the war who is documenting the horrors of the Saddam regime in his Iraq Memory Foundation, opened the AEI meeting by admitting to many “dashed dreams”.

He said he and other opposition figures had seriously underestimated the powers of ethnic and sectarian self-interest, as well as the survivability of the “constantly morphing and flexible” Ba'ath party. He also blamed the Bush administration for poor planning and committing too few troops.

The proposed constitution, to be taken to a referendum on Saturday, was a “profoundly destabilising document” that could “deal a death blow” to Iraq, he said.

The constitution was a recipe for greater chaos, said Rend Rahim, a former exile who had been designated as Iraq's first postwar ambassador to the US. Unless revised, it would lead to such a devolution of power that the central government would barely exist, she said.

Qubad Talabani, Washington representative of the Kurdistan regional government, delivered a stinging indictment of the central government that echoed the growing divisions in the ruling alliance of Shia and Kurds.

Danielle Pletka, senior analyst at AEI and conference moderator, called the constitution deeply flawed, describing it as the result of political machinations between Iraqis and Americans. She said the process had been reduced to a benchmark for the exit of US troops.

With growing numbers of Americans wanting an early withdrawal from Iraq, Mrs Pletka's remarks reflect the concerns of conservative ideologues that the Bush administration will succumb to internal pressures and pull out prematurely.

Believe in Jesus, become a crony

George W. Bush, the President with a direct line to God, has revealed a major reason he hired Harriet Miers. She's a Christian.

President Bush said Wednesday his advisers were telling conservatives about Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers' religious beliefs because they are interested in her background and "part of Harriet Miers' life is her religion."

"People are interested to know why I picked Harriet Miers," Bush told reporters at the White House. "They want to know Harriet Miers' background. They want to know as much as they possibly can before they form opinions. And part of Harriet Miers' life is her religion."

Bush, speaking at the conclusion of an Oval Office meeting with visiting Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski, said that his advisers were reaching out to conservatives who oppose her nomination "just to explain the facts."

He spoke on a day in which conservative James Dobson, founder of Focus on Family, said he had discussed the nominee's religious views with presidential aide Karl Rove.
Beyond parody really isn't it?

Here is a roundup of some of the blogging related to Hurricane Stan, which killed thousands in Central and North America:

Taken out and shot

Charles 'Laughing Boy' Johnson is at it again. Cherry picking that is. Something that his critics are always accused of when it comes to criticism of his sordid little hate site. This time he picks up on a letter to the editor of (yep that's right, a letter to the editor) and complains that someone said in a just world, Bush, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Rice, Feith and their underlings would be taken out and shot. That really is terrible isn't it Charles. It's not as if you'd allow that in your comments section. If you have trouble remembering the shit that has passed for commentary from some of your more 'trusted' members of that big hearted brain trust you have going on.

An Internet primer

For Charles, and other Web newbies, here is some basic information on the recent US-EU-RoW Internet control debate:

The EU does not intend to scrap Icann. It would continue in its current technical role.

Instead Europe is suggesting a way of allowing countries to express their position on internet issues, though the details on how this would happen are vague.

"We have no intention to regulate the internet," said Commissioner Reding, reassuring the US that the EU was not proposing setting up a new global body.

Rather she talked of a "model of cooperation", of an international forum to discuss the internet.

Synagogue attacked and vandalised

This is a terrible story. Now if this attack had been committed by Muslims, Charles Johnson would be all over this like bad cologne. Unfortunately for Charles, a golden opportunity to spread his unique brand of Islamophobia has been dashed by the revelation that the culprits of this senseless, violent and disgusting attack were Jewish.

AN orthodox Jewish synagogue in Stamford Hill has been attacked and vandalised - not by anti-semetic thugs, but by fellow Jews who regard its leaders' outspoken condemnation of Israel as a betrayal.


Windows at the synagogue in Alkham Road were smashed after bottles were hurled at them last Thursday evening and the front of the building was covered with red spray paint.

The synagogue belongs to Neturei Karta, an ultra-orthodox sect opposed to the Zionist political movement that established the state of Israel as a national homeland for Jews.

Quote of the week

A great comment in the Hitchens Watch comments.

Yeah, the LGF'ers get a little...testy if you express any opinion that differs from or opposes theirs. If they call you an anti-semite, it pretty much means you've nailed it. I'm guessing that some/all of you are in the British Isles...and all I can say is, if you have mouth-breathing numbskulls like this over there, just thank your lucky stars they aren't as heavily armed as ours.

Spread the word

Just over 24 hours since a massive earthquake brought death and destruction to South Asia, Charles 'one post is all they deserve' Johnson has moved on to more important world events, such as "Another Checkpoint Knife Attack Averted"

Ah well, some people are beyond help. However, others are not, and we at LGFWatch urge you to give what you can to your local Red Cross/Red Crescent organisation, who will undoubtedly be doing something to help the victims of Earthquake Charles and Hurricane Stan.

Failing funds, you can always help spread the word about these human tragedies by linking to:

Earthquake in South Asia

Over 20,000 people are feared dead in an earthquake that hit parts of Paskistan, India and Afghanistan on Saturday morning. As yet the full extent of the damage is unknown, but as communication is restored to rural areas it is expected the destruction will turn out to be massive. Like with Hurricane Katrina, now is the time for the world to act and send what help it can to those affected. Unlike with Katrina, it probably won't.

Leading the pack of those who don't really care about 20,000 backward Muslims dying is a certain Mr C Johnson of California, USA. So far, he has posted ONE item about the quake. It will be interesting to compare and contrast his reaction to Katrina and to the earthquake over the coming days.

Perhaps people would pay more attention to earthquakes if they had names, just like hurricanes do. I put forward a suggestion for Saturday's tremblor: let's call it Charles.

I come not to praise Charles Johnson but to pity him

Picked this up from Sadly No, it hits the nail on the head. This is what's going on at LGF. This is 'astoundingly', 'outrageously', 'unbelievably' good. (snigger)

Charles Johnson is not a very good blogger. People dont visit his site to read his witty or insightful comments about current events because um....well he has none. He has no analytical ability to speak of.If he had any he would have used it by now. He cuts and pastes large swathes of other peoples creative work and then adds superlatives like 'astoundingly', 'outrageously', 'unbelievably' etc.

(TunnelvisionChuckie has no insightful comments, but his inciteful comments he sells wholesale, Heh)

His large traffic comes from LGFers revisiting the forum to see if anyone has replied to their latest inane comment post about banging Michael Moores head in with a cluestick or grotesque Rachel Corrie and Cindy Sheehan jokes.

Its a slow motion chatroom with a single topic. If it were available on Yahoo! it would be the 'anti-Muslim' room. (Invitation only of course)..

His descent into wingnuttery is lasting so long because he hangs around with complete strangers who are hysterical, naive outcasts who encourage that mindset.

The betrayal of nutjob, wingut Americans by Charles Johnson

Charles amazingly posted this picture on his open thread. This is obviously crescent. A symbol of Islam. It's a betrayal of all those right-wing nutjobs that post on his site. It insults the memory of all wingnuts before him, even those who died in the crusades. We also suspect that that odd shaped tree represents a star and points towards Mecca. Shame on you Charles.

Bush Confused About The Real Enemies of America

A Beginners Mind Blog takes up the story of that 'major' speech.

Now, I am utterly flabbergasted that the leader of our country would use a ridiculous propaganda term like "Islamo-fascist" (popularized by the happy-go-lucky racist nutjobs at LGF) in a speech to the American public. The term shows a complete lack of understanding about both Islam and fascism, things with which Bush really ought to be more familiar.

Perhaps the President had better take a closer look at some of the real, closer-to-home radicals opposing the American way of life and the ideology they espouse.

The Charles Johnson Story

One Man's Tragic Descent Into Wingnuttery

Sure, there were early warning signs of wingnuttery (his irrational fear of Muslims existed well before 9/11). But overall, he was a fairly well-balanced geek with a pretty good sense of humor- a far cry from the paranoid, bigoted torture enthusiast he became after 9/11. How does this happen? What makes a regular person descend into wingnuttery? The horror, the horror...
Read it all....and laugh.

A growing disenchantment

From September: More than half of Americans today would prefer U.S. troops leave Iraq as soon as possible rather than have them stay in Iraq until that country is a stable democracy, which many do not think will happen.

Hamas is anti-gay shocker!

Yesterday, Charles dropped a bombshell (well he cut and pasted a something or nothing, stating the bloody obvious article from The Times). Extremist terror organization Hamas and their interpretation of Islam disapproves of homosexuality. You can imagine the shock that rippled through the blogosphere at that announcement. Tomorrow Charles takes on anti-gay Christianity at the heart of the American right. Well you can but hope for a 'fair' and 'balanced' approach.

Terrorists and the Right rejoice, Bush defends torture

Al-Qaeda and the pro-torture right could be breathing a collective sigh of relief. It seems that the White House is ready to veto a curb on torture despite scant support for the White House argument. It would mean that Al-Qaeda and come to think of it any terrorist group would have the chance of bumper propaganda if the US get caught on camera. Also it would mean that the pro-torture right-wings, especially the online community can get their kicks/dismiss it as hi-jinx/celebrate demeaning foreigners. You know who they are.

The White House repeated an earlier veto threat Thursday after the Senate voted by an overwhelming bipartisan margin for a measure to prevent mistreatment of prisoners held by the U.S. military.

The 90-to-9 vote to ban "cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment" of anyone in U.S. government custody was one of the sharpest political rebukes in Washington of a system under which abuses occurred in Iraq and Afghanistan and at the Guant�namo naval base in Cuba.

The abuses, documented in photographs of the humiliation of prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq by their U.S. jailers, provoked furious reactions in the Muslim world, brought angry condemnations around the world and reportedly fueled acts of violence in Iraq.

The vote late Wednesday came on an amendment to a $440 billion defense budget bill. Forty-six Republicans, including the majority leader, Bill Frist of Tennessee, joined 43 Democrats and an independent, reflecting unusually scant Senate support for the White House argument that the measure would unduly constrict Americans who are leading the difficult fight against terrorism.

The Senate passed the measure by a margin well beyond the two-thirds required to override a presidential veto. But the White House, while reiterating the veto threat Thursday, appeared sanguine about the matter.

"The House legislation doesn't include that language," noted Scott McClellan, the White House spokesman. Suggesting that such a provision seemed unlikely to survive the conferences in which the Senate and House iron out legislative differences, McClellan said, "We will continue working with Congress to address this issue."

With friends like these...

The number of Palestinians slain in vigilante killings and other internal violence nearly quadrupled over the past four years, from 43 in 2002 to 151 so far in 2005, according to statistics presented Thursday, and one top security official said more Palestinians were killed in internal violence this year than by Israeli troops.

Palestinian infighting deaths quadrouple since '02

Spoken to the Almighty, told me to invade

President George W. Bush must have one hell of a telephone on his desk. Look who he can get through to.

President George W. Bush allegedly told Palestinian ministers that God had told him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq - and create a Palestinian State, the BBC will report in a program slotted to run Oct. 17, RAW STORY can reveal.

The BBC errantly posted a press release link on their website early, revealing the documentary's contents.

In Elusive Peace: Israel and the Arabs, a major three-part series on BBC TWO (at 9.00pm on Monday Oct. 10, Monday Oct. 17 and Monday Oct. 24 British time), Abu Mazen, Palestinian Prime Minister, and Nabil Shaath, his Foreign Minister, describe their first meeting with President Bush in June 2003 to BBC reporters.

Foreign Minister Shaath declares: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, "George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan." And I did, and then God would tell me, "George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq …" And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, "Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East." And by God I'm gonna do it.'"

Ex-servicemen to Democratic hopefuls

After all he bangs on about supporting the the troops, how about supporting them after they come back and then stand against his 'favourite President and his party of chickenhawks'? How long before he or one of his brave minions defames one of these courageous ex-servicemen as traitors?

It's the way he tells them!

The Spy who knew Dick

Independent, effective fighting force seeks support

Things just go from bad to worse. More and more top level American officials are expressing their horror at the mistakes and mis-management of a poorly planned and illegal war.

U.S. politicians and policymakers' perceptions towards the Iraq war have reached another tipping point: There is now a widespread recognition shared among senior uniformed U.S. military officers and Washington foreign policy analysts that plans to rapidly build up the Iraqi army as a new, independent effective fighting force have failed disastrously.

The Senate heard testimony last week from some of America's top generals that the war in Iraq is going worse than ever and that only 1 out of 119 Iraqi army and security battalions can operate by itself in combat situations without U.S. military backup.

New Vietnam? More like Suez says top Tory

Does it really matter? Both were monumental screw ups, so you can draw parallels either way.

Malcolm Rifkind, a former British foreign secretary who seeks to become the next leader of the Conservative Party, said Tuesday that the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq was the worst foreign policy blunder since the 1956 Suez crisis.

Rifkind, one of five contenders hoping to lead the opposition party, said President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair had failed to understand the consequences of toppling Saddam Hussein.

"My own view is that the Bush experiment in bringing democracy to the Middle East, the short- and medium-term consequence, has been to turn Iraq from a major problem into a huge crisis," he told a meeting on the sidelines of the Conservatives' annual convention.

"It is the single biggest foreign policy disaster since Suez," Rifkind said.

7 out of 10 Londoners say Iraq contributed to 7/7

Obviously the Prime Minister is one of the 30% that don't.

LONDON - Seven out of 10 Londoners believe the Iraq war contributed to the July terrorist attacks in the city, and nearly as many want British troops withdrawn from Iraq, according to a poll published Tuesday.

The MORI poll for the Greater London Authority found that 72 percent believed British involvement in the U.S.-led war contributed a "great deal" or a "fair amount" to the July 7 transit attacks, in which four suicide bombers killed 52 people.

Only 8 percent thought the war was not a factor, while 15 percent thought it was "not very much" of a factor.

Sixty-two percent said they wanted British troops out of Iraq; 27 percent wanted troops to stay and 11 percent had no opinion.

Bush and the Palestinian state

Typical Charles. He's calling the EU appeasers for promising to help build a Palestinian state by injecting a quarter of billion Euros. Maybe he's forgotten this statement by his favourite Texan.

"The goal of two democratic states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace is within reach, and America will help them achieve that goal."
President George W. Bush, State of the Union Address, February 2, 2005.
And how about the US governments commitment to aiding the Palestinians financially to the tune of 350 million dollars.

In his State of the Union address, President Bush announced that he would ask Congress to approve $350 million "to support Palestinian political, economic and security reforms." This week, Congress will begin consideration of a proposal to send $200 million of this sum to the Palestinians in the form of emergency aid, while the remaining $150 million will be proposed in the President's 2006 fiscal budget.

U.S. considering $2 bln in military sales to Saudis

The U.S. is considering $2 bln in military sales to Saudis. I wonder whether Charles will mention that? I mean he's no fan of their 'backward' society but then again he's a propagandist for one of their biggest supporters. What is Bush worshipping shill to do?

Bombs, ballots, and arrested journalists

Sad times in Afghanistan, a day before last month's election results are due to be announced:

The editor of an Afghan women's rights magazine has been arrested and thrown in Kabul jail after he was accused by a presidential adviser of publishing unIslamic material, officials said today.

Minority Shiite Muslim clerics in Kabul objected to two articles in the monthly Haqooq-i-Zan, or Women's Rights, edited by Ali Mohaqiq Nasab, that were critical of Islamic law. Police arrested Nasab on Saturday.

Late last week, the clerics approached Mohaiuddin Baluch, religious adviser to President Hamid Karzai, who said he forwarded the magazines to the Supreme Court.

"I took the two magazines and spoke to Supreme Court chief, who wrote to attorney general to investigate," Baluch told The Associated Press.

He said one of articles was critical of the punishment under Shariah, or Islamic law, of 100 lashes for those guilty of adultery. Another article argued that giving up Islam was not a crime. Baluch said that was directly against Quran.
Where's the outrage, Charles? How about some Lizard-action?

Flag #2

On the issue of the 'British' flag, reader A. writes:

I just thought I'd point out another slightly amusing thing about Charles' latest post - that he doesn't seem to understand the difference between Britain and England. The British flag is, of course, the Union Jack, not the Cross of St. George.

But then, who cares, we're all a bunch of dhimmis anyway ;)

Thanks for the great work you're doing with LGF Watch; it's nice to know that there are still some sane people in the world.

Cheers. We appreciate the feedback :-)

UPDATE: Charles has since changed the word 'British' to 'English'. Even the great lizard king can be corrected sometimes...

Where's the outrage?

Charles latest headline reads,

Muslims Offended by British Flag
Now here's the piece he cuts and pastes,

Chris Doyle, director of the Council for the Advancement of Arab-British Understanding, said Tuesday the red cross was an insensitive reminder of the Crusades.

“A lot of Muslims and Arabs view the Crusades as a bloody episode in our history,” he told CNN. “They see those campaigns as Christendom launching a brutal holy war against Islam.

”Muslim or Arab prisoners could take umbrage if staff wore a red cross badge. It’s also got associations with the far-right. Prison officers should be seen to be neutral.“

Doyle added that it was now time for England to find a new flag and a patron saint who is ”not associated with our bloody past and one we can all identify with."
Can you count how many Muslims have been offended by the cross of St. George? Neither can we. Where are these offended Muslims Charles?

It's incredibly galling coming from someone who got his panties in a twist over a crescent shaped memorial.

Steve Sailer and the Little Green Klan

The Little Green Klanmembers aren't just happy ridiculously accusing 'stalkers' of LGFW of nic-jacking their site (without any evidence......despite another left wing site joking about doing it) have linked to white supremacist and 'scientific' racist Steve Sailer again! This is a man so disgusting that John Podhoretz of NRO took him to task and even comments in Right Wing News labelled him 'offensive' and 'racist'. This is a man who pontificates on race and the science of race without actually any qualifications in the subject. In fact he has absolutely no credentials apart from being an offensive hack. This is the kind of drivel this man comes out with.

"What you won't hear, except from me, is that "Let the good times roll" is an especially risky message for African-Americans. The plain fact is that they tend to possess poorer native judgment than members of better-educated groups. Thus they need stricter moral guidance from society. ... In contrast to New Orleans, there was only minimal looting after the horrendous 1995 earthquake in Kobe, Japan — because, when you get down to it, Japanese aren't blacks."
So while the Little Green Klansman responsible for the post at lgc-colloquium states

Let the name-calling begin.
Who needs to mention the word 'racist' when you're actively promoting one? But who are we to disappoint. Little Green Klanmembers seems perfectly apt and just in case you're doubting their stupidity and bigotry check out the comments on the link above.

That sums it up nicely.

Iraq approval down to 33%

Bush, how low can you go?

Few adults in the United States are satisfied with the way George W. Bush is dealing with the coalition effort, according to a poll by Princeton Survey Research Associates published in Newsweek. 62 per cent of respondents disapprove of the way their president is handling the situation in Iraq.

The coalition effort against Saddam Hussein’s regime was launched in March 2003. At least 1,939 American soldiers have died during the military operation, and more than 14,300 troops have been injured.

The purest neocon and his flunkies

Bad news for Charles Johnson. His new poster boy Christopher Hitchens (Yuk!What a thought) is hated by hardened conservatives as well. They even go as far as describing neo-conservatism as 'warmed-over' Trotskyism.

Read it all and chuckle.

Supporting the troops the Republican way

Sending the troops to fight and charging them for the 'privilege'.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 - The Pentagon has not completed guidelines for allowing soldiers, their families and charities to be reimbursed for some combat equipment they bought for use in Iraq and Afghanistan, a year after the passage of legislation calling for such a program.

The measure, which allows for groups and individuals to make claims of up to $1,100, called for the Department of Defense to set rules for a reimbursement program by February 2005.

The sponsor of the original legislation, Senator Christopher J. Dodd, Democrat of Connecticut, says he plans to introduce an amendment to a defense bill this week to take authority for the program from Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and give it to military commanders in the field.

"We should not be sending our young men and women into harm's way less than as well prepared as their nation can prepare them and provide them with the kind of protection they deserve," Mr. Dodd said. "The Pentagon has never acted on this legislation despite the fact that it is the law of the land."

"It has been frustrating," he said. "And the problem still persists."

On Friday, a Pentagon spokeswoman, Lt. Col. Ellen Krenke, said in an e-mail message that Defense Department officials were "in the final stages of putting a reimbursement program together and it is expected to be operating soon." Colonel Krenke declined to discuss a reason for the delay.

Army surveys have shown that infantry members spend hundreds of dollars of their own money each year on gloves, boots, flashlights and other tools used in combat.

About Face!

Failed to materialize

It seems that the Federal government is still messing up with regards Hurrican Katrina.

Two weeks before President Bush's mid-October goal for moving Hurricane Katrina victims out of shelters, more than 100,000 people still reside in such makeshift housing, and 400,000 more are in hotel rooms costing up to $100 a night.

Housing options promised by the federal government a month ago have largely failed to materialize. Cruise ships and trailer parks have so far proved in large part to be unworkable, while an American Red Cross program -- paid for by the federal government -- that allows storm victims to stay in motels or hotels is scheduled to expire Oct. 15. It is projected to cost the Federal Emergency Management Agency as much as $168 million.

Is America going mad?

Bush 'encouraged', top generals pessimistic

When Bush ad-libs his advisors cringe.

President George W. Bush sought on Saturday to dispel concerns about the readiness of U.S.-trained Iraqi security forces, declaring himself "encouraged" even though his top generals say the number of battalions that can fight insurgents without help has dropped.

Torture as stress relief

Possibly the worst excuse for brutally oppressing somebody ever.

FOR the first time, American soldiers who personally tortured Iraqi prisoners have come forward to give testimony to human rights organisations about crimes they comm itted.
Three soldiers – a captain and two sergeants – from the 82nd Airborne Division stationed at Forward Operating Base (FOB) Mercury near Fallujah in Iraq have told Human Rights Watch how prisoners were tortured both as a form of stress relief and as a way of breaking them for interrogation sessions.
Haven't these guys ever heard of stress balls?

Also, Bob munck was there crying because somebody made fun of his name. I 'll bet he feels better now that a bunch of liberal fags have kissed his ass. Explain to me how WE'RE nazis, but we generally support Israel, and they do not. Hating jews is what made a nazi a nazi. Yet, we are the stupid ones. Whatever. Also, Bob Munck: you suck. And your name sucks.
How much stupidity can ooze from a single paragraph? You'd be hard pressed finding a dumber comment. It's as if he's saying "How can I be a Nazi? I've eaten bagels and drunk manischewitz wine! I even talk to Jews on the net."

The wisdom of Rumsfeld

Crooks and Liars has discovered a jaw droppingly stupid quote from Donald Rumsfeld. Questioned about insurgents infiltrating the Iraqi forces he said:

''It's a problem that's faced by police forces in every major city in our country, that criminals infiltrate and sign up to join the police force."
Is it a problem in the US Donald? Let's be fair here, how many LAPD or NYPD officers are planning suicide attacks against their fellow officers? How many applicants with criminal records (not suicidal bloodlust by the way) actually gets past the rigorous selection and training process at these police forces?

Jaw-droppingly stupid. Maybe he was channeling his boss?

Bennett defends racist outburst with lies

Not happy with getting his foot firmly in his mouth, Bill Bennett is no prepared to lie about his comments. This is his defence. This man not only has dubious views, he's an idiot as well.

Buying the news

The New York Times drops a bombshell on us. It seems that the Bush administration has been buying favorable news coverage. Jeebus in a nightie! Never saw that coming. I wonder if Charles got a cheque from the GOP news buyers for his pathalogical obsession with covering George's ass?

Charles Speak

When is black white and white black? When it suits Charles 'Icarus' Johnson, lizard king and purveyor of finely twisted logic.

Exhibit A: 'The EU Wants to "Oversee" the Internet' (

The European Union, helpless to deal with Iran’s nuclear scheming, has lots of time to think about taking control of the Internet: EU Wants Shared Control of Internet. (Hat tip: LGF readers.)

1) did you fail to notice the recent IAEA resolution, and who it was sponsored by, Charles?

2) what has the Internet got to do with Iran's nuclear aspirations?

3) the EU's efforts are not designed to 'take control of the Internet', they are an attempt to prevent the USA from exerting monopoly control over it by either getting a world body (ie the UN) to oversee the Net, or at least give individual countries or country-blocs (like the EU) a measure of influence equal to that of the US.

It's called Democracy and Fairness, you stupid lizard.
