Christmas is a time of miracles. It’s a time to celebrate Good Tidings of Great Joy. A time when we put on display the inherent good will and love for our fellow man that so often lays dormant the rest of the year.

But mostly it’s a time of miracles. So as my Christmas gift to you, my fellow Rotties, my family, I give you this story of a miracle.

Merry Christmas everyone, may God Bless each and every one of you.

…although, so far, we’ve yet to actually spot a dark cloud anywhere near the Writers’ Guild strike, so we guess the saying isn’t all that appropriate. So sue us.

Protein Wisdom brings us these horrible, HORRIBLE news:

LOS ANGELES - Two of Hollywood’s most glamorous events are now caught up in the entertainment industry’s ugliest labor dispute in two decades. The Writers Guild of America, West, will not allow its members to write for the Golden Globes on Jan. 13 nor the Academy Awards on Feb. 24.

Whatever will we DO?

There. Now that His Rottieness has the snark out of his system, he feels all better. We can only say one thing to the Writers’ Guild: Stay strong! Don’t give in, don’t cave, don’t yield an INCH! We’re counting on you to stand up for what is right, and keeping the annual circle-jerk festival off the airwaves is so right that it just makes us tingle all over.

What? You really thought that anybody were going to give a damn about your temper tantrums?

Think again.

UPDATE: As we think about it, the strike may have yet another silver lining. We mean, if the writers won’t write for the Limousine Socialist Circle-Jerk Awards of ‘08 and Hollyweird insists on putting on a show anyway, that would mean that the (badly) trained monkey presenters would have to go on and deliver their own lines for once, wouldn’t it? Sorta like [Insert random name of music industry trained seal who couldn’t carry a note in a bucket nailed to his/her forehead and only sounds bearable because of the wonders of studio equipment] getting so carried away with his/her own hype that he/she decides to do a show without lip-synching.

Now THAT would be TRULY hilarious. Unintentionally so, yes, but hilarious nonetheless. Heck, we might even tune in to watch it.

So three Evil Jooos™ dare wish people on a Noo Yawk subway a Happy Hanukkah and are rewarded with a bunch of insults and assorted other abuse from a gaggle of anti-Semitic fuckwits, and who steps in to defend them?

A righteous, upstanding Muslim student from Bangladesh, that’s who.

We tip our Imperial Crown to that fine young man. Once for doing the right thing in spite of being badly outnumbered, and once more for giving our faltering beliefs in the human race a much-needed boost.

Mazel tov!

LC Lorraine was the first to alert us to the double church shooting that occurred right after the massacre in Omaha, but we got a bit tied up in business and never had a chance to post on it until now.

But let’s recap:

Mall directors violate citizens’ rights to self-defense, paint big bull’s-eyes on their chests and backs and this is what happens.

Another crazy goes nuts and tries to commit mass murder, only in this case an armed, law-abiding citizen is present at the scene of the second shooting. This is what happens.

Any questions?

I’m with the Imperial Firearms Advisor. I will either flat out refuse to set foot in a facility that demands the right to tie my hands behind my back and let a psychotic murderer have his merry way with me and my loved ones, OR I will violate the law and carry anyway.

The owners of the Westroads Mall are accomplices to eight counts of murder. The blood of the innocent are as much on their hands as it is on the murdering swine who at least had the good sense to kill himself, thus saving us from having to waste a red cent on his upkeep while the bleeding hearts tried to get him off the hook with sad tales of woe on a cold potty.

The owners of that mall are murderers. They’re criminally negligent and I hope and pray that they’re sued into oblivion, driven to suicide and made to rot in Hell for all of eternity.

Right next to the goblin whose actions they aided and abetted by helpfully rendering his victims unarmed and defenseless.

A while back I commented on Michael Yon and the story of St. John’s Church in Baghdad.

Well in more continued stories of success that the Dinosaur media won’t tell you because it doesn’t aid them in their quest to see us defeated in The Long War, Yon brings us a heart warming update. St. John’s is open for business and the local Muslims want their Christian neighbors to come home.

Go read the story, and then keep the great news of our and the Iraqi’s continued success with you today, and say a prayer of thanks that Good can, and will, beat Evil.

Sir Christopher brings us this bit of news that gets even our lethargic Muse out of her stupor:

NORTHVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Residents along a cul-de-sac told police they saw a small fire near the spot where the burned and beheaded body of a convicted sex offender was found.

I guess he won’t be raping anybody anymore then.

He was identified by the Michigan State Police through a fingerprint taken from his burned hand. The print also revealed Sorensen had been a registered sex offender in Illinois.

Sorensen’s head has not been found and a cause of death has not been released.

Sudden separation of head from shoulders? Massive burns? More importantly: Who really gives a flying fuck at a rolling donut?

“Who would do something like this to my son? It’s not real to me right now,” said his father, Jim.

Dunno, Jim, but right off the top of my head words like “statutory rape” and “underage girls” suggest all manner of explanations, particularly when they, as in your son’s case, are used in combination.

Sorenson, of River Rouge, worked as a bar bouncer, his father told WJBK-TV.

The criminal sexual conduct charge stemmed from a relationship the younger Sorenson had had with an underage girl, his father said. His sex offender status was “a cloud that hung over his head,” his mother Kim told WXYZ-TV.

Finding the head should be no problem then: Just look for the damn cloud, why don’t you?

“He was a good person … but he had a rough life,” Kim Sorenson said.

Wonderful boy, when he wasn’t busy raping underage girls but hey, why bother with minor details like that?

Now, would somebody please sweep that greasy smear off the damn road before it stinks up the neighborhood?

UPDATE: The plot thickens, thanks to this link from alert reader Sunfish.

From reading this, it’s apparent that the government of Michigan seems to be unable to understand their own laws. Either that, or the media are still trying to get the facts right, it’s one of the two. Early reports stated that Sorenson was a registered fourth class sexual offender, which is strange considering that Sorenson, being 17 at the time of his offense, certainly wasn’t five years older than his victim, who was 14. Even using that sad substitute for real learning that is known as “New Math”, we can’t find a way of subtracting 14 from 17 and ending up with 5 or more.

Of course, this is only true if his fourth class status was assigned because of age. The other possibilities are rape (in more than “just” the statutory sense), incest or abuse of authority, but then the “oh, but they were just teens in love” defense certainly falls apart rather quickly.

Either way, the fact that he was 17 and she 14 certainly turns it into an entirely different sort of crime than if he’d been 19, 24 or 30. Is it still wrong for 17-year-olds to go around crawling into the panties of 14-year-old girls? You betcha it is, at least according to this stuck up old fuddy-duddy Emperor, but it hardly falls into the “let’s saw off his head and set his body on fire” category. More like the “son, you’re about to get a severe beating, and then I don’t expect you to ever darken this family’s doorstep again” category, at least if it was a 14-year-old daughter of ours.

And then there’s the other issue, which is that it turns out it wasn’t a killing motivated by anger, righteous or not, at all. It was a couple of sick, deranged, ready-for-a-trip-on-old-sparky teens looking for a “thrill.” Call us heartless if you must, but in our learned opinion, beasts who consider it a “thrill” to stab, murder and mutilate people who’ve done them no wrong need to be dragged outside behind the shed and shot in the face at the earliest possible opportunity. Giving scum like that a trial is a criminal waste of taxpayer funds, not to mention a highly offensive way of treating subhuman filth as if it was worthy of being called “human” in the first place.

No, we still don’t think that Sorenson was a choir boy. Again you may call us hopelessly old-fashioned and a bit of a prude if you feel thusly inclined, but 17-year-olds humping little girls isn’t kosher in this Emperor’s point of view. But it certainly doesn’t merit murder, beheading and mutilation. A good old-fashioned ass-whupping would have sufficed.

Consider ourself corrected by the additional facts, and may G-d lend his family strength. He fucked up back then (as do a lot of people, but wall-to-wall counseling will usually fix that sort of thing), but he certainly didn’t deserve this end.

This is from the Opinion Journal..and from me, no comment, other than to say that he has, as usual, nailed it. This is what I have been talking about to Misha and a few of you..this is why they have failed so dismally.

I can’t help, other than to encourage, and support you as the election gets nearer.

LC’s, G.L.O.R’s..read.Think. This is how you beat them.

This week is the one-year anniversary of Democrats winning Congress. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid probably aren’t in a celebrating mood. The goodwill they enjoyed after their victory is gone. Their bright campaign promises are unfulfilled. Democratic leadership is in disarray. And Congress’s approval rating has fallen to its lowest point in history.

The problems the Democrats are now experiencing begin with the federal budget. Or rather, the lack of one. In 2006, Democrats criticized Congress for dragging its feet on the budget and pledged that they would do better. Instead, they did worse. The new fiscal year started Oct. 1–five weeks ago–but Democrats have yet to send the president a single annual appropriations bill. It’s been at least 20 years since Congress has gone this late in passing any appropriation bills, an indication of the mess the Pelosi-Reid Congress is now in.

Even worse, the Democrats have made clear all their talk about “fiscal discipline” is just that–talk. They’re proposing to spend $205 billion more than the president has proposed over the next five years. And the opening wedge of this binge is $22 billion more in spending proposed for the coming year. Only in Washington could someone in public life be so clueless to say, as Sen. Reid and Rep. Pelosi have, that $22 billion is a “relatively small” difference.

Let’s also be clear about what it means to roll back the president’s 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, as the Democrats want to do. Every income-tax payer will pay more as all tax rates rise. Families will pay $500 more per child as they lose the child tax credit. Taxes on small businesses would go up by an average of about $4,000. Retirees will pay higher taxes on investment retirement income. And now we have the $1 trillion tax increase proposed as “tax reform” by the Democrats’ chief tax writer last month.

(Italics mine - LCB)

Failing to pass a budget, proposing a huge spike in federal spending and offering the biggest tax increase in history are not the only hallmarks of this Democratic Congress. Beholden to MoveOn.org and other left-wing groups, Democratic leaders have ignored the progress made in Iraq by the surge, diminished the efforts of our military, and wasted precious time with failed attempts to force an immediate withdrawal from Iraq.

They continue to try to implement this course, which would lead to chaos in the region, the creation of a possible terror state with the third largest oil reserves in the world, and a major propaganda victory for Osama bin Laden as well as for Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah.

After promising on the campaign trail to “support our troops,” Democrats tried to cut off funding for our military while our soldiers and Marines are under fire from the enemy. For 19 Senate Democrats, this was simply a bridge too far, so they voted against their own leadership’s proposal. Democrats also tried to stuff an emergency war-spending bill with billions of dollars of pork for individual members. Now the party’s leaders are stalling an emergency supplemental bill with funding for body armor, bullets and mine-resistant vehicles.

After pledging a “Congress that strongly honors our responsibility to protect our people from terrorism,” Democrats have refused to make permanent reforms of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that the Director of National Intelligence said were needed to close “critical gaps in our intelligence capability.”

Their presidential candidates fell all over each other in a recent debate to pledge an end to the Terrorist Surveillance Program. Then Senate Democratic leaders, thinking there was an opening for political advantage, slow-walked the confirmation of Judge Michael Mukasey to be the next attorney general. It’s obvious that this is a man who knows the important role the Justice Department plays in the war on terror. Delaying his confirmation is only making it harder to prosecute the war.

Democrats promised “civility and bipartisanship.” Instead, they stiff-armed their Republican colleagues, refused to include them in budget negotiations between the two houses, and have launched more than 400 investigations and made more than 675 requests for documents, interviews or testimony.

They refused a bipartisan compromise on an expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, instead wasting precious time sending the president a bill they knew he would veto. And they did this knowing that they wouldn’t be able to override that veto. Why? Because their pollsters told them putting the children’s health-care program at risk would score political points. Instead, it left them looking cynical.

The list of Congress’s failures grows each month. No energy bill. No action on health care. No action on the mortgage crisis. No immigration reform. No progress on renewing No Child Left Behind. Precious little action on judges and not enough on reducing trade barriers. Congress has not done its work. And these failures will have consequences.

Democrats had a moment after the 2006 election, but now that moment has passed. They’ve squandered it. They have demonstrated both the inability and unwillingness to govern. Instead, after more than a decade in the congressional minority, they reflexively look for short-term partisan advantage and attempt to appease the party’s most strident fringe. Now that Democrats have the reins of congressional power, their true colors are coming out and the public doesn’t like what it sees.

The Democratic victory in 2006 was narrow. They won the House by 85,961 votes out of over 80 million cast and the Senate by a mere 3,562 out of over 62 million cast. A party that wins control by that narrow margin can quickly see its fortunes reversed when it fails to act responsibly, fails to fulfill its promises, and fails to lead.

Still more signs of continuing success in the “quagmire” of Iraq. Remember the “good ol’ days” when the MSM idiots loudly proclaimed that Al Quaeda had re-taken Ramadi? I somehow doubt that they will be as quick to trumpet this news.

This month last year I was embedded in Ramadi with 1st Battalion 6th Marines as they kicked in doors, fought insurgents, and began to clear the city block by block. It cost the lives of a lot of good Marines, most under age 25, but their efforts and sacrifice convinced a few local citizens that the Marines understood the difference between “Iraqi’s” and “Al-Quada” — and so the charismatic Sheik Sattar Abu Risha formed the Sons of Anbar, and began co-operating with LtCol William Jurney’s young Marines.

What a difference a year makes.

Back in the day I knew Lt. Col. Jurney. He was a young Lance Corporal at the time, getting ready to go to OCS. It seems that he has done quite well since then eh? Lt. Col Jurney and his aggressive tactics and keen understanding of the Iraqi culture, combined with an expert application of COIN tactics has turned the most violent city in Anbar province, if not all of Iraq, into a blossoming symbol of our eventual victory in this war.

There is more electricity in Ramadi than any other city in the country, normally including Baghdad. Schools have re-opened throughout the city; the two grade schools once guarded by Alpha Co. 1/6 today have 2,000+ students studying daily. They ran a 5K race through the center of the city in September, as a way of announcing to the world that “Ramadi has survived.”

I would say not only survived, but flourished. But how could this be? Give us more, O Emperor! »
