First Ehud Smolmert (thanks, LC Adam) fucks up the war with Hizb’allah, then he starts releasing child murdering paleoswinian terrorists, and now he’s fucking ARMING THE TERRORISTS ON YOUR DIME??? (via the one and only Imperial Linkmaster General):

Israel authorized the transfer of 1,000 rifles from Jordan to the security forces of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, Israeli and Palestinian security sources confirmed to Haaretz Wednesday night.

This is the largest arms transfer authorized in recent years, and it is meant to aid forces loyal to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in preventing the possibility of a Hamas challenge and possible takeover similar to that of the Gaza Strip.

The weapons were delivered to the PA security forces three weeks ago following Israeli authorization.

A few days ago, we were jokingly saying that Smolmert (or Abu Brainfart)’s next move would be to order the IDF to randomly blow up Israeli pizzerias so as to take some of the workload off the paleoswinian splodeydopes.

Now it’s suddenly not all that funny anymore.

Oh, and to add insult to injury:

The transfer of the M-16s was kept under strict confidence on both sides, in an effort to prevent any possible leak that could undermine Abbas’ standing.

So not only is Abu Smolmert Brainfart directly arming Abu Mazen and his murderous hordes, he’s also doing what he can to not “hurt his standing?”

If, that is, he isn’t really concerned about his own standing, the fucking Kapo.

It’s like the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto volunteering to reload for the SS.

(Paging Yigal Amir…)

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.
And when we’ve practiced for a while, how vastly we fuck up our style.

So it looks like The New People’s Socialist Republic hired on Scott Beauchamp because he happened to be humping one of their editors and, helpfully enough, happened to be a card-carrying leftard who could be counted on to use his vast fantasy skills to produce just the kind of half-arsed, anti-war tripe on which TNR has built their house of cards.

You’d think that a moron publication like TNR, previously caught in the Stephen Glass scandal, would somehow realize that they weren’t exactly doing themselves any favors by becoming less credible than the Weekly World News, but you’d be wrong. Their response to being revealed, again, for the nepotistical, inbred liars that they are?

Let the whistleblower know, of course, that “your services are no longer needed.”

At least said whistleblower won’t be going down with that creaky garbage scow when it sinks.

It seems the cats inside the beltway are scratching away at the litter trying to bury the “Shamesty 2007″ debacle and fallout, from the plebeian masses.

US Businesses Fear Illegal Foreign Worker Crackdown

US businesses are bracing for a possible major crackdown on illegal foreign workers, as the government seeks to give immigration authorities more power to punish companies hiring undocumented workers.

President George W. Bush’s administration has proposed a federal regulation that unions warn could lead to mass firings nationwide by companies seeking to avoid prosecution and fines.

So we’re to believe that Jorge Arbusto after using every trick in the book, including calling his base racists, that suddenly he’s had a change of heart and wants to play hardball? It’s just a proposal and after it’s sufficiently reported, far and wide, I’m sure it will quietly shuffle off the mortal coil into the dumpster.

“It’s going to put businesses all over the nation in a bind,” said Tamar Jacoby, an immigration expert at the conservative Manhattan Institute.

“If the feds (federal authorities) really follow through with this, and I think they’re going to, you’re going to see lots of industries … leave the US,” Jacoby said.

Uh huh. Let’s see, it’s pretty well established that illegals favor a fairly narrow band of labor. Landscaping and general construction labor is one. I don’t think many of us will send our lawns or roofs outside the U.S. Next we have the meat processing industries, Hormel, Tyson, and Pilgrim’s Pride aren’t likely to outsource because they’re rather dependent on locations within reasonable shipping distance of their suppliers.

The rule under consideration in Washington relates directly to the potentially fraudulent use of Social Security numbers, which employees provide at the time of hiring.

Fake Social Security cards are widely available on the black market, allowing many immigrants to work at major US corporations.

Amazing, our technological society just can’t seem to sort that issue out. I know the SSA only employs a few senior citizens that frequently get lost in the tons of paper records, boxes and lunch leftovers. I mean it’s not like they have a computer database of actual, legally issued SSNs right?

Jacoby said the proposed regulation, left pending since June 2006, was boxed up while Congress debated a sweeping immigration reform plan that recently collapsed.

Since the legislation was buried, businesses have braced for the worksite enforcement regulation to be adopted by the Department of Homeland Security, she said.

Ever notice how PR and journalists types just love the word “Brace”. Eastern Slobovialand is “bracing” for Hurricane Blow-Job Billy, businesses are bracing for actual enforcement of laws. It’s just me, but when I hear or see that word used I think of the movie “Airplane” with passengers assuming their crash positions.

The largest chicken processor in the United States, Pilgrim’s Pride, has fired more than 100 employees who cannot produce valid Social Security numbers, according to news reports and advocates for the workers in rural east Texas.

Experts describe the firings as a pre-emptive move ahead of beefed-up enforcement.

In other parlance, we gotta cover our asses and quick.

The company has acknowledged firing workers although it would not say what motivated the layoffs or how many were let go. It has hired replacement workers.

“There undoubtedly will be additional terminations,” said Gary Rhodes, a spokesman for Pilgrim’s, which has 55,000 employees in the United States and Mexico.

No motivation for the layoffs, eh? But you did hire replacements, perchance were they all gringos?

The government routinely alerts companies when suspicious numbers are entered into the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) electronic database, but experts say current law essentially allows employers to ignore the warning letters.

In a 2006 fact sheet, the White House said the proposed regulation would make it “clear that employers who ignore the discrepancies between SSA databases and the information provided by their employees may be viewed under the law as knowing that the employees are illegal workers, making it easier … to prosecute violators.” [Emph Mine]

Don’t you just love it when we already have laws on the books, but other laws allow someone to just ignore the others. Rule of Law, my ass. The proposed regulation, our careful readers will note says “may be viewed under the law”, nice loophole there Bushito.

Companies that knowingly hire illegal workers can face criminal prosecution and be hit with fines of up to 10,000 dollars per worker for repeat violations.

Not that any company would ever be assessed a fine, because as we all know, ICE is in the habit of giving notice to employers prior to their “surprise” inspections.

According to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the proposed rule remains pending. But business leaders believe authorities may announce its final adoption before the summer is out.

ICE spokeswoman Pat Reilly could not give a timetable for when it might be adopted, but she said it was a “well intentioned regulation and one hopes that it will get full consideration.” [Emph Mine]

Proposed rule, remains pending. Cannot provide a timetable when it might be adopted. Cough *BULLSHIT* Cough.

Bill Hammond, head of the Texas Association of Business and part of a national business alliance that pushed for immigration reform in Washington, said the migrant job losses at Pilgrim’s could be the tip of the iceberg.

There are an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States, with as many as a 10th of them in Texas.

“There are a lot of employees in Texas … who are undocumented workers,” Hammond said. “A lot of them could be out of the workforce over the next six to 12 months.”

Well golllee, gee-wizziwockers. That’s a lot folks doing the jobs that no Americans will do. I don’t mind paying an extra quarter a pound for chicken or hamburger meat, if it means that taxes being vacuumed out of my pockets by said ‘undocumented’ workers using government services, are reduced by a couple hundred dollars.

Immigrant advocacy groups, labor unions and a coalition of national business groups have criticized the proposal.

The AFL-CIO, an umbrella group representing 53 unions and nearly nine million workers, warned the government last year that the proposed rule would “trigger mass firings across the nation” and lead to discrimination against legal workers.

Typically, the clue-bereft AFL-CIO fails recognize the difference between legal and illegal. Color me stupid, but don’t most labor unions attempt to increase the wages for their employees. With that in mind, if the illegal workers (obviously working on a lower pay-scale) disappear wouldn’t that allow your legal employees better wages? Or is a reduction in union dues a factor?

“It’s going to put employers in a position pretty quickly of, I think, having to terminate workers,” said John Gay, vice-president for government relations at the National Restaurant Association. “We are concerned about it.”

My heart bleeds for you, it really does. That would mean hiring and actually paying employees fair wages and profits declining, maybe some layoffs of VP gubmint-relations types are in order as well.

I just can’t find a microgram of pity for any of these companies right now. Not a solitary one.

And his name is PVT (soon to be busted so low that he’ll have to salute the latrines) Scott T. Beauchamp.

Predictably, he pats himself on the back for his moral fortitude in standing up and “outing” himself (curiously coinciding with LC & IB JD Johannes nailing his identity down to his very unit), calling everybody who criticized his brilliant work of fiction “reporting” “chickenhawks”, something which will come as a surprise to all of the critics who either served in general, served in Iraq in particular or serve at this very moment.

LC & IB Uncle Jimbo has a few choice words about that, in case you want to know (and you do, trust me on that one).

PVT Beauchamp, a legend in his own mind who, in his own words, just joined to lend legitimacy to his criticisms once he gets back to the “real” world.

Right, maggot (with our most profound apologies to carrion eating invertebrates everywhere), you’re a right royal Mother bloody Theresa.

Except that here, back in the real world, you’re either a witness to/participant in actions punishable (severely) under the UCMJ who failed to report them to proper authorities or a gottdamm, buddy-fucking, backstabbing, inveterate, lying sack of shit.

Pick one, asshole. There is no door number three.

LC & IB Naviguesser sends us this article about Silky Pony McBreck Girl going, er, “bicycle riding.”

Dumont, Ia. — Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards squeezed into a pair of Spandex bike shorts today…

Be still, my projectile vomiting mind’s eye…

and pedaled on the RAGBRAI route with champion cyclist Lance Armstrong.

One nut between the two of them. Well, in the physiological sense. Actually two, but the difference is that Lance has one, whereas Silky Pony… You get the drift.

After riding from just north of Dumont to Kesley, Edwards wrapped his arms around a several riders from Team Killer Bees for a photo,

What can one possibly hope to accomplish in life after having already embraced a sweaty, Spandex-clad Silky Pony?

(CALIGULA: Soaking for several hours in a bleach-filled jacuzzi, my Liege?)

Quit ruining my jokes, Little Boot, or I’ll take all of your goats away from you again. By the way, who let you out of your quarters this time?

but declined be held aloft in their traditional sideways pose. “You’d drop me, then I couldn’t be president,” he joked.

Not to mention that you might mess up his immaculately coiffed hair.

Then he sat down in Kesley for a diet soda and a pork chop. “My second,” he said.

The candidate was sweaty after about a dozen miles, but there was no evidence of helmet hair.

No surprise. The Imperial Center For Nuclear Physics Research and Weapons Development recently classified his hairdo as a “Class A Direct Impact Shelter”, meaning that anything hiding beneath it would be capable of surviving a direct hit with a 50 kt device.

Edwards rode at an easy pace, about 10 to 12 mph, and chatted with riders about whatever issues they brought up — Darfur, taxes, Iowa farming.

None of them had the least interest in, I don’t know, bike riding, perhaps? Then again, we can’t say as we blame them since we don’t either.

Several riders inquired about Elizabeth Edwards’ health — she was diagnosed this year with a recurrence of breast cancer — and wished her well.

Their fundraising begging letters will be in their inboxes shortly, as several people meaning to wish her well on the campaign site found out not too long ago.

As the pack crammed together to let a car pass, Edwards wobbled a little and veered around a rider.

“This is an accident waiting to happen,” he said, and laughed.

Don’t wait too long. Besides, think of the fundraising potential if you were to get a boo-boo. Your wife will be on every news network within the hour, telling everybody how they need to send as much as they can to the Silky Pony campaign to put an end to bikeriding accidents forever.

Graduate student Allison Vos of Chapel Hill, N.C., told Edwards that people probably didn’t realize he was in the group of cyclists hanging back from those encircling the cycling champion.

“That’s just fine with me,” said Edwards, who had a chain grease “tattoo” on his right calf.

“We are only $20 away from ending chain grease tattoos for good” — Elizabeth “Organ Grinder Monkey” Edwards, writing for the Breck Girl Campaign.

“This is actually not hard, this is fun,” Edwards said as he climbed a hill on County Road T16 on a black Trek road bike he borrowed for the day. “The biggest problem is my butt hurts. Is that normal?”

No, Pink Sapphire, it isn’t. Then again, you probably shouldn’t have removed the saddle before you joined the ride. Not That There’s Anything Wrong With That™.

Justin Lyle, 10, from Morgan Hill, Calif. rode next to Armstrong for about a mile. “I asked him, ‘How you go pee on the Tour de France?’” Lyle said later. “He said it’s pretty hard, sometimes you have to hold it.”

Not to mention that those riders go so damn fast. You have to time it just right, or they’ll all be past you before the first drop hits.

Next time, Silky Pony, use some petroleum jelly.

Looks like the Dem Cong “Terrorist Activities Protection Act of 2007″ went down to defeat.

I guess they won’t be looking forward to major raises after their next CAIR performance review.

Oh, we cannot hardly contain our Schadenfreude. Sweet, sweet Schadenfreude. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

LC Clinton (first name, not last) sends us these wonderful news:

BOULDER, Colo. — The University of Colorado’s governing board on Tuesday fired a professor whose essay likening some Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi leader provoked national outrage and led to an investigation of research misconduct.

Ward Churchill, who had vowed to sue if the Board of Regents took action against him, said immediately after the 8-1 vote was announced: “New game, new game.”

Three faculty committees had accused Churchill of plagiarism, falsification and other misconduct. The research allegations stem from some of Churchill’s other writings, although the investigation began after the controversy over his Sept. 11 essay.

But of course he’s going to sue. What has this nation come to if tenured tumblefarts can’t falsify, plagiarize and otherwise conduct themselves in ways unbecoming with impunity? Go right ahead, Chief Shitting Bull. We can’t wait to laugh at you when you get slapped down again.

“The decision was really pretty basic,” said university President Hank Brown, adding that the school had little choice but to fire Churchill to protect the integrity of the university’s research.

“The individual did not express regret, did not apologize, did not indicate a willingness to refrain from this type of falsification in the future,” Brown said.

Considering that the sum total of his qualifications seems to be an uncanny ability to use a Xerox machine and a fake “Indian” certificate that he found in a Cracker Jack box, it would seem strange if he were to agree to abstain from doing so in the future.

His braindead attorney, predictably, completely disregards the facts of the case and states instead:

Churchill’s attorney, David Lane, said that the decision was retribution for Churchill’s Sept. 11 remarks and that he would file suit on Wednesday.

“For the public at large, the message is there will be a payback for free speech,” Lane said. “It sends a message out to the academic community generally that if you stick your neck out and make politically inflammatory comments, you will be dragged through the mud for two years and you will ultimately have your tenure terminated.”

Allow us to repeat, for the benefit of Mr. Lane who has elevated boneheadedness and inability to comprehend to an art form, we quote (with emphasis):

But the essay that thrust Churchill into the national spotlight, titled “Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens,” was not part of the investigation.

But obviously Reading Comprehension wasn’t part of the curriculum at the Central American diploma mill from which Mr. Lane apparently bought his degree. Unless he can point us to the part of the Constitution that declares falsification and plagiarism “protected free speech.”

Now break out the champagne!

But downtown doesn’t look to good right now:

Word on the street is that it was a delivery driver effing up when trying to refill gas canisters, so any speculation about terrorism would seem wildly premature at this point. No confirmation as to whether steel has been reported to melt either, so Rosie O’Dingdong can calm down too.

So far, “only” two injuries are reported, both burn cases, and we’re praying that it stays that way. UPDATE: A third injury, a back injury, also reported. Latest news indicate that both the burn injuries are expected to fully recover.

More if I hear something.

UPDATE: (Expect a lot of those. Breaking news are notoriously inaccurate to begin with) It would appear that the guy refilling canisters wasn’t involved. He just happened to be there when the building blew up, fortunately before he could enter.

UPDATE: The DFD are currently containing the fire. They’ve managed to get close enough to start pouring water on the outskirts of it as well, but the main thing is that it isn’t spreading.

Okay, smilies are back. Not the same ones, but better. And easier to use.

I installed the full set of sixty, but I will be cutting them down to a more reasonable number in the next day or two.


Update:  I am having a bit of a CSS problem with Firefox, so it will take me a while to finish.  First, I have to fly home because this computer here won’t do what I need it to do.
