Political Digest for February 27, 2012

The Old Jarhead Blog. Bringing you news and information the MSM is too busy covering American Idol, celebrity affairs and sensational missing person cases to cover. Please forward to friends who need to be informed.
 I post articles because I think they are of interest. Doing so doesn’t mean that I necessarily agree (or disagree) with every—or any—opinion in the posted article. Help your friends and relatives stay informed by passing the digest on. In some cases I post things sent to me by readers I might not have posted on my own, to get ideas circulating.

 Death Toll Rises for Russian Police and Security Troops Fighting Islamist Insurgency in Caucasus
Excerpt: Russian police say the number of police officers killed in a four-day operation to wipe out several militant bands in the volatile Caucasus republics of Chechnya and Dagestan has increased to 17.

Egypt: Islamist Parties Take Upper House as Well
Anyone who cheered the "Arab Spring" was a naive idiot. Really. Especially Obama and Clinton. ~Bob. Excerpt: Final results in elections for Egypt's Shura council: Muslim Brotherhood takes 105 seats, Salafis take 45. Egypt released final results in its elections for the upper house of parliament on Saturday, confirming that the Islamist parties are the biggest winners in the vote and now control both houses of the country’s parliament.

Mike Madigan, this moutza's for you by John Kass,0,4808187.column
Excerpt: Chicago is the most corrupt city in America. Illinois is the third most corrupt state. Our home values are down, our taxes are high and the political bosses get rich using our government to leverage their private enterprise. They hand out free scholarships to state public universities for the children of their cronies. They promote their own children to public office. We're sick and tired of taking it.

Illegal Who Tried Bombing Capitol Protected Under Obama Amnesty
Excerpt: As the Moroccan who plotted a suicide bombing inside the U.S. Capitol appears in federal court today, much of the mainstream media coverage omits a crucial part of the story; this is the class of illegal immigrant the Obama Administration is sparing from deportation.

A strike on Iran would pose tough test for Israelis
Excerpt: An Israeli pre-emptive strike on Iran's nuclear sites would amount to a roll of the dice against elusive targets, drawing in the United States if the gamble fell short, analysts and former US military officers say. Iran's air defenses and ageing fighters would be no match for Israel's high-tech aircraft and cyber warfare, but the outcome of a raid would largely hinge on intelligence and whether Tehran is able to hide key elements of its uranium enrichment network.

Putin presidency means more than taking office
Excerpt: The demonstrators who have turned out in the tens of thousands to protest Vladimir Putin’s rule are confronting a deeply entrenched power structure that winds through government and industry, extracting great profit and heavily invested in the status quo.

Students Physically Attacked for Interrupting Israel Talk in New Mexico
Excerpt: A group of University of New Mexico students "mic checked" an Israel Alliance talk on their campus Thursday night, when audience members got up out of their seats and physically attacked the protesting students. "Mic check! Nonie Darwish speaks for Israeli apartheid!," yell the students at around 15 seconds into the video. "And genocide at the hands of the IDF [Israeli army]!” From there, older male audience members begin to slowly walk their way up to the students (some of them young women), and start physically pushing and attacking them. At 55 seconds in, you can see one of the students goes flying over a row of seats. (Alternate title: Jihadi sympathizers getting their a$$ kicked for disrupting a speech. --DH)

Angry Churchgoer​s Club Suspected Bomber To Death As He Attempts To Flee
Excerpt: Angry worshippers at the headquarters of Church Of Christ In Nations (COCIN) in Jos (Nigeria) on Sunday killed one of the two suspected bearers of the explosives that hit the Church in the morning. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the bomber and one other, who both wore army camouflage, drove into the Church and beat the security before hitting the building. (Maybe we should riot over Muslims offending Christians by destroying the "turn the other cheek" ethic. ~Bob.)

The Brits are done for: First They Came for the Firemen By Andrew Bostom
Excerpt: An utterly bone chilling example of self-destructive dhimmitude [1] was described in The London Telegraph 2/26/12 [2] by Investigations Editor Jason Lewis. The incident involved David S. Jone [3]s a military veteran of the Household Cavalry, who served in Malaya with the armored reconnaissance squadron, retired British fireman, author, and developer of the children’s character Fireman Sam (now an international success as a children’s TV series.). Mr Jones was detained, publicly humiliated and harassed at Gatwick airport by “security” personnel following a mere jocular, passing comment made to a security official noting that a Muslim woman in hijab was simultaneously passing through the security checkpoint without showing her face. Upon placing his belongings, including a scarf, into a tray to pass through the X-ray scanner Jones simply quipped, “If I was wearing this scarf over my face, I wonder what would happen.”

A Look At The World's Most Powerful Mercenary Armies
Excerpt: Business is booming for a growing army of private military contractors, who take their military training and offer it to the highest bidder. Modern-day mercenaries are stationed throughout the world fighting conflicts for governments that are reluctant to use their own troops. (I suppose they discriminate against fellows who are almost 66, over-weight and on oxygen. Damn. ~Bob.)

Barack in Sarah clothing by Don Surber
Excerpt: Republicans have President Obama on the run. He has had to disguise himself and his stupid policies again — this time by donning the political garb of his arch rival. President Barack Obama looks pretty nice in Sarah Palin’s dress. And by dress, I mean her energy policy. He is now mouthing the very words he mocked 4 years ago when he said we don’t need to drill for oil. In 2008, Candidate Obama preached that if everyone just needs to check the air pressure in their tires, we’ll be fine.

Mexican government​’s ignorance on full display!%E2%80%9D-sign-erected-along-us-mexican-border.aspx
Excerpt: BATFE officials who supervised the operation out of Phoenix claimed as early as 2008 that 90 percent of the guns seized in Mexico came from the U.S. Of course, it has now been shown that many of Mexico’s traced firearms originate in Central America and other countries. In other words, the “90 percent” statistic was widely reported, but was obviously inflated, and BATFE officials have themselves refuted those numbers (please read related article here). (Not ignorance. Obfuscation. ~Bob.)

Top Ten Alternatives to Apologizing to Afghanistan By Keith Koffler
Excerpt: With President Obama, the United States was supposedly getting a worldly figure who had lived in other lands and understood the foreign brain. Turns out Obama has little knowledge of how other cultures think, which is why he believes bowing, offering the hand of friendship, and apologizing to overseas savages works. Such activities, as any veteran of the schoolyard playground will tell you, breed only one thing: Disrespect, contempt, and, eventually, even worse violence.
