Gene Simmons, never to be silent on an issue upon which he strongly feels, provided the mother of all death announcements.  He declared Rock and Roll to be dead.  Here is more from Esquire, via LoudWire…

Gene Simmons is making headlines again, this time for burying rock ‘n’ roll. The outspoken artist says “Rock is finally dead,” in an interview conducted by his son Nick for Esquire magazine. The Kiss singer-bassist also shares his thoughts on the failing record business and how he would not want to be an up-and-coming artist today.

“The death of rock was not a natural death,” Simmons offers. “Rock did not die of old age. It was murdered. Some brilliance, somewhere, was going to be expressed, and now it won’t, because it’s that much harder to earn a living playing and writing songs. No one will pay you to do it.”

He continues on about how he feels for this lost generation of kids who will not have the same opportunity that he had with Kiss. “It’s very sad for new bands. My heart goes out to them. They just don’t have a chance.” Simmons remarks. “If you play guitar, it’s almost impossible. You’re better off not even learning how to play guitar or write songs, and just singing in the shower and auditioning for ‘The X Factor.’ And I’m not slamming ‘The X Factor,’ or pop singers. But where’s the next Bob Dylan? Where’s the next Beatles? Where are the songwriters? Where are the creators?”

Illegal Alien “Dreamer” Permanently Ends the Dreams of Two Young Children, Get’s no Jail Time, and Avoids Deportation

I haven’t covered illegal immigration as much as I once had, or even as much as I should, but with Don under the weather, I thought it might be a good idea to cover this aspect of Obama’s Amerika.  It seems that the effort to keep illegal immigrants here, no matter how many American citizens they kill, will not stop under this administration.

Here is a picture of Anna Dieter-Eckerdt, age 6, and Abigail Robinson, age 11.

Abigail-Robinson-and-Anna-Dieter-Eckerdt-2

They were playing in a leaf pile when illegal immigrant, Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, ran over the leaf pile, killing both of them.  Let me be the first to note that IF THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT HAD BEEN DEPORTED AS SHE SHOULD HAVE LONG AGO, THESE CHILDREN WOULD STILL BE ALIVE!

We have covered stories like this before.  Thousands of American citizens have been killed by illegal immigrants, only to be ignored by the media and this administration.  These two girls are only the latest, and they will not be the last.

However, the story becomes even more disturbing when we find that not only does Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros walk for her crime, she doesn’t even get deported! Here is more…

Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros has been released from jail, can get a work permit and can apply for a Social Security number now that an immigration judge has dismissed her deportation case, said immigration attorney Courtney Carter, who represented the 19-year-old in the proceedings.

Carter won an “affirmative claim for defense” on behalf of her client, she said, and so an immigration judge dismissed the case.

Andrew S. Munoz, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement, said “it is within [the department’s] discretion to look into whether or not a case should be charged again.”

Garcia-Cisneros was convicted in January of felony hit and run in a crash that killed two young stepsisters – Anna Dieter-Eckerdt, 6, and Abigail Robinson, 11 – in Forest Grove in October. The young woman drove through a leaf pile, unaware the two girls were playing in it, but failed to return to the scene. A Washington County judge sentenced her to probation and community service after the girls’ family forgave her in court.

I get that the family forgave them.  They might have been Christians, and were acting in accordance with their beliefs.  However, forgiveness does not mean that she walks for killing children.

And further more…

Garcia-Cisneros had been planning to appeal her criminal conviction. That process remains underway, Carter said. Her criminal attorney is Ethan Levi, who is on vacation this week and didn’t immediately return a phone message.

She is appealing a conviction that lead to probation?

Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros is a “dreamer,” an illegal immigrant that was brought to this country as a child.  It’s ironic that she’s referred to as that, when she permanently snuffed out the dreams of two children.

Folks, being an American citizen, in your own country, only means that you are “acceptable losses,” if you are killed by a member of  a democrat party client group.  You lives have no value.  Better get used to it.

NOTE:  How much do you want to bet that some liberals out there will blame the victims?

Schroeder Shot Dead!

Schroeder in happier times

Popular pianist Schroeder, who once wowed audiences with his talent, has been discovered dead, the apparent victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Police discovered his body slumped over his piano.  In his hand was a note that said, “I ask my fans to forgive me.”

Immediately expressions of sympathy poured in from throughout the world.  From the Republic of South Africa, President Jacob Zuma praised Schroeder for his piano playing and his commitment to social justice.

He often came here and played for our brothers at a time when a white musician to play for us was illegal.  He treated everyone as an equal.  Even dogs.  Why he used to let stray beagles dance on his piano.  He was a brother.  We will miss him.

President Obama praised Schroeder.

He played for me during my campaign and at my inaugural ball.  He was a good man who used the millions he made to combat racism, global warming and income inequality.

Schroeder, who preferred to be known professionally by his last name only (his first name was Larry) burst onto the classical music scene with “Schroeder:  The Basement Tapes” which became the first classical recording to go platinum since “Lady Gaga:  Fully clothed”.

The Basement tapes were followed in quick succession by “Sgt. Schroeder’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” “Schroeder’s White Album” and “The Plastic Schroeder Band.”

The Schroeder phenomenon it appeared was unstoppable, with Schroeder selling out concert halls, touring the world and doing a series of popular TV specials.  It seemed he could do no wrong.

But behind the success darkness lurked.

“It was Lucy” said Schroeder’s manager.  “She was the destroyer of worlds.”

Lucy Van Pelt’s infatuation with Schroeder began at an early age.  At first he was dismissive of her, but when she blossomed into a beauty

Schroeder overcame his original aloofness and became smitten with her.  A courtship followed and they became married.

But Lucy was a jealous wife.  She didn’t like Schroeder’s long absences from home while was on tour.

“Lucy knew about the groupies and she didn’t like it one bit” said a friend of Lucy.

The two would have frequent fights as Lucy accused Schroeder of cheating on her.  On one occasion she stabbed him in the hand, hoping out of spite to end his career.  Fortunately for Schroeder there was no permanent nerve damage and he continued his touring.

Unable to cope with her jealousy and violent rages, Schroeder hatched a plan to divorce her. One of his last public appearances was in a court asking for a restraining order against his estranged wife.

And now the music world mourns his death.

For the moment police believe it is a suicide but some have doubts.

“If it was a suicide why was the gun taped to his hand” said his lawyer. “And why was the suicide note in Lucy’s handwriting?”

Indeed a disheveled Lucy was captured on security cameras leaving Schroeder’s residence shortly before his body was discovered.

Based on these suspicions police have named Lucy a “person of interest” and have asked anyone with knowledge of her whereabouts to contact them.

Armed Pizza Delivery Guy Defends Self From Armed Attacker

Share

Of course, if the gun grabbers had their way, he’d be dead, but that’s a small price to pay for the control they would obtain.  The Daley Gator has more…

Just another example of how armed Americans defend themselves with guns

A pizza delivery driver is believed to have defended his life with a firearm after an armed man attempted to rob him on Monday night.

Witness James Wethers told KNXV-TV that he heard three gunshots at around 11 p.m. Monday night. When the looked outside, he saw the “freaked out” pizza delivery and another man face down in a driveway across from his home in Redford, Mich.

“He just said he was robbed. The guy put a gun up to his head and he had to shoot the guy,” he said. “He was freaked out…he didn’t know what to do.”

It’s unknown at this time what the legal fate of the delivery man was.  One thing is certain, had he not been armed, he might well be dead.  And that, of course, is why you’ll never see stories like this in the MSM-it simply does not match the narrative.

Former Houston Oilers Iconic Coach Bum Phillips Dead at age 90

Share

As a life-long Steelers fan, Bum Phillips is a well know adversary.  From the mid 70’s to 1980, Phillips was a worthy adversary, coaching the Houston Oilers to two consecutive AFC Championship Games vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers, in 1978, and 1979.  Here is more coverage from Ultimate Texans…

Oail Andrew “Bum” Phillips Jr., who spent half his adult life as a football coach and every waking moment as the personification of all things Texan, died Friday at his ranch in Goliad.

Phillips was three weeks past his 90th birthday and more than three decades removed from his heyday as head coach of the Oilers from 1975 through 1980. But he will be remembered as the personification of a time, a place and a team that remains deep in the hearts of everyone who saw them play.

The end came on a cool autumn football weekend as Houston’s current pro team, the Texans, prepares to play Sunday with his son, Wade, serving as defensive coordinator. Family members said Wade Phillips visited with his father before rejoining the team for its trip to Kansas City.

“Bum is gone to Heaven-loved and will be missed by all -great Dad,Coach, and Christian,” Wade Phillips, whose Twitter handle is @sonofbum, tweeted shortly after 10 p.m.

Bum Phillips was a product of a family that traced its roots to Texas’ frontier past, and he did his job dressed in boots, jeans and a white Stetson – except at the Astrodome, since his mama told him it was impolite to wear a hat indoors.

He was, said one admirer, the “Will Rogers of the NFL,” justly famous for such sayings as, “There’s two kinds of coaches: them that’s been fired, and them that’s gonna be fired.”

But it was his relationship with his players – and theirs to him – and his ability to relate to fans that cemented his place among the legends of Texas football coaches with the likes of Darrell Royal, Tom Landry and Gordon Wood.

“Bum Phillips’ Oilers succeeded in a way that will never be measured by percentages and trophies,” wrote former Chronicle columnist Ed Fowler in a book about the team. “They symbolized a city rather than merely representing it.”

They called it “Luv Ya Blue,” and from 1978 through 1980, it was the biggest thing in Houston sports. In truth, the city has not seen anything to top it.

Twice Phillips’ Oilers battled the Pittsburgh Steelers for a berth in the Super Bowl, and both times they came up short. After each loss, they were welcomed home by more than 40,000 cheering fans at the Astrodome, inspiring one of the most famous quotations in the history of Texas sports.

“One year ago we knocked on the door. This year we beat on the door,” Phillips said after the 1980 title-game loss. “Next year we’re gonna kick the sumbitch in.”

But they never did. After the Oilers lost a first-round playoff game in 1980, Phillips was fired on Dec. 31, 1980, by Oilers owner K.S. “Bud” Adams. Never again, until their departure for Nashville in 1997, would the Oilers again so captivate their fans or come so close to a championship.

Bum Phillips was one of those unforgettable icons, not only for his accomplishments as a man, and coach, but how he impacted the public.  If you measure a man in that way, Bum Phillips comes up high on any list.

Jan Kuehnemund, Lead Guitarist of Vixen, Dead at Age 51

Share

Jan Kuehnemund, known for being the lead guitarist of the all -girl metal band Vixen, has died of cancer, she was 51.  Here is more from AV Club…

The original lineup of Vixen was reportedly just days away from announcing a new reunion in January when Kuehnemund found out she had cancer. There are no current plans for Vixen to continue without her. In a statement released Friday, the surviving members of the classic Vixen lineup had this to say:

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Vixen founder and lead guitarist, Jan Kuehnemund, who lost a fierce battle with cancer on Thursday, October 10, 2013. Though most well known for her gifted guitar playing and other musical talents, Jan was a rare friend and beautiful in every sense of the word. Humble, thoughtful, loyal and kind, she was the most gracious of women, possessing the quiet strength of a true warrior. She genuinely loved and appreciated her friends and fans more than most could ever know. Those who were most fortunate to have known her and loved her are heartbroken at the loss of Jan, whose spirit will shine through her music eternally.

Jan was very courageous. Never complained. Never gave up. The cancer beat her body but it NEVER broke her spirit at any point.

Up until the actual moment that she died, she really believed she was going back home.

Jan… you will be missed.. but never forgotten. 

So, to remember Jan, here are some videos.

Mankind Will Die Off Before 2030 If We Don’t Stop Climate Change

Share

“The world can decide in a fit of madness to kill itself,”

“We may not get to 2030. We need to address the problem of climate change urgently.”

 ”just get on with it”

The undisputable authority behind this dire prediction is none other than Sir Bob Geldof, the former Boomtown Rats singer. So you know it is true. If we don’t stop climate change, all of mankind will be dead by 2030.

But, here’s the thing you have to understand, folks. Man does not have the power to stop the climate from changing. So, shouldn’t we all just try to get along with each other for the next 17 years?

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Pittsburgh Steelers Great, L.C. Greenwood, Dead at 67

Share

L.C. Greenwood, a 13 year veteran of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and a standard on the Steel Curtain Defense of the 1970’s, has passed away.  he was 67.  ABC News has more…

L.C. Greenwood, the relentless defensive end who made up one quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ “Steel Curtain” defense of the 1970s, has died. He was 67.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s office said Greenwood died Sunday from undisclosed causes just before noon at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital.

A six-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro, Greenwood played for the Steelers from 1969-81, helping Pittsburgh win an unprecedented four Super Bowls in a six-year span. Greenwood, Joe Greene, Ernie Holmes and Dwight White formed the bedrock of the defense that helped turn a perennial loser into a dynasty.

“L.C. was one of the most beloved Steelers during the most successful period in team history and he will be missed by the entire organization,” Chairman Dan Rooney said in a statement. “He will forever be remembered for what he meant to the Steelers both on and off the field.”

Greenwood was taken in the 10th round of the 1969 NFL draft — nine rounds after Greene — out of Arkansas A&M (now Arkansas Pine-Bluff). He blossomed into a tenacious pass rusher who used his superior speed to blow past offensive tackles and into the backfield. Though sacks did not become an official statistic until after his retirement, Greenwood posted 73½ during his 13-year career.

Greenwood thrived in the postseason. He sacked Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach four times in the 1976 Super Bowl, a 21-17 Pittsburgh victory.

Here is a highlight video featuring L.C. Greenwood, as well as his Steel Curtain teammates…

Our prayers are with the Greenwood family.

My Exclusive Interview with a Zombie

Share

All we want is a little respect!

Zombies are much in the news lately with many TV shows and movies being built around them.  With that in mind today at Manhattan Infidel I am honored to snag an interview with a member of the community of the undead.

MI:Welcome to my humble blog.

Z: Thank you.  It’s a pleasure to be here.

MI  I must say you’re very articulate and clean cut for a zombie.

Z: That’s racist!  That’s a racist comment and you should be ashamed of yourself!

MI: I’m…..I’m sorry.  I didn’t mean anything by it.

Z:  Okay then.  We’ll let it pass.

MI: I mean I’m not anti-zombie at all.  Lots of bloggers are zombies.  I don’t mind them.  As long as they don’t move into my neighborhood or date my children.

Z: What?

MI: Now, first question.  What it’s like being a zombie?

Z: We’re hunters and gatherers mainly, much like your native Americans.

MI: Oh, the merciless Indian savages.  Yes, I heard they had primitive ways.

Z: What?  You really should  stop talking like that.

MI:  So tell me what do zombies do for fun?

Z: We absolutely love soccer.

MI: Really?

Z: Oh yes.

MI: I didn’t know that.

Z: It fits our skill set.  As zombies we are slow moving and uncoordinated.

MIMuch like soccer players themselves.  Now I get the connection.

Z: Exactly.  In fact many professional soccer players are zombies.  So the next time you see a soccer player collapse on the field he’s not faking an injury, he’s just a zombie.

MI: Wow.  So any famous zombies my readers would like to know about?

Z: Joe Biden.  He’s a hero to us.  The first zombie to breakthrough and have mainstream success in the living community.

MI: Any others?

Z: Kanye West, Jay-Z, Keith Olbermann – though we all hate him – the entire 2013 New York Yankees.

MI:  Even Jeter?

Z: Why do you think he broke his ankle?  Zombies shouldn’t play shortstop.  We’re natural first baseman.

MI: That makes sense.  Now I have to ask this.  Do you watch the Walking Dead?

Z: Yeah.  The entire show is one giant hate crime against our race.

MI: How so?

Z: First off we rarely bite the living. Unless they’re with the EPA.  We’re vegans for the most part. The living just taste funny.  Too fresh.

MI: So what’s next for the zombie community?

Z: We’re trying to get our own land where we can live together.

MI: Like the savage Indians on their reservations?

Z: I’ll let that pass.  And once we get our own land we can build our own culture without interference from the living. It should be exciting.

MI:Who do zombies vote for?

Z:Well as you can imagine since we are dead we vote for Democrats.

MI: Do any zombies vote Republican?

Z: Yeah.  Mainly third and fourth generation zombies who have forgotten where they came from.

MI: Well that about wraps up my questions. Um, dude, your arm just fell off.

Z:  No problem.  I’ll just tape it back on.  Being dead we have these problems.

I thank the unnamed zombie for stopping by.  And I would ask my readers to be good Americans and good neighbors and welcome the zombies into your neighborhood.  They’re just like you and I.  But dead.

Man Uses Legal Gun to Rescue Self, Wife, From Bank Robbers: Media Silent

Share

Apparently, liberals would just prefer that these people be dead.

A man used a legal gun to save both his wife and himself from bank robbery suspects.  Here is more from KHOU…

Again, if gun grabbers had their way, the robbers would have been armed, and the family would have been defenseless, and possibly dead. But, as long as the liberals got their gun control, it would be a small sacrifice.  And, of course, since this does not fit the national gun narrative, the national media will not discuss it.

Notorious AntiSemite Helen Thomas Dead at Age 92

Share

Unattractive on the inside as well as out,  long time journalist Helen Thomas has died.  She was a fixture in the White House Press Corps for decades, she was forced to resign after making antisemitic statements in 2010.  Jammie Wearing Fools has a post, as well as a most appropriate title…

She won’t be missed.

           …

She was a fixture at White House news conferences — sitting front and center late in her career — where she frequently exasperated government spokesmen with her pointed questions.

Thomas began covering the White House for United Press International when John F. Kennedy became president in 1961 and was a fixture there until her retirement in 2010.

She was a trailblazer and the considered the dean of the White House press corps because she was the longest-serving White House journalist.

Her career, however, came to an end under a cloud of controversy.

Thomas, then working for the media conglomerate Hearst as a syndicated columnist, was blasted for comments she made regarding Jewish people.

In 2010, a YouTube video surfaced showing her saying that Israel should “get the hell out of Palestine,” and that the Jewish people should go home to “Poland, Germany … and America and everywhere else.”

Sadly, Thomas is not a abberation.  Hatred runs deep in the media.  But perhaps Hell has claimed one of it’s own today.

Heavy Flooding In Argentina, Dozens Dead, Billions in Damages

Share

Last week, Argentina was struck by record rains, which caused disastrous flooding in the cities of La Plata, and Buenos Aries.  The BBC has more…

Emergency workers in Argentina continue to try to rescue residents stranded by flooding in Buenos Aires and La Plata.

More than 50 people are known to have died after one of the heaviest storms recorded caused flash floods.

Thousands were evacuated from their homes and dozens are still stranded on rooftops, treetops and the roofs of city buses, local media report.

The government has declared three days of national mourning after what it called “an unprecedented catastrophe”.

‘Death trap’

“We’ve never seen anything like it,” provincial governor Daniel Scioli said.

BBC map

“People were taken by surprise, and some didn’t have time to escape this deadly trap,” Mr Scioli said, referring to the speed with which the waters rose.

Provincial officials said 40cm (16in) of rain fell on the city of La Plata in the space of two hours late on Tuesday night.

Earlier, the storm had dumped 15cm of rainfall on the capital, Buenos Aires.

Local officials said at least 48 people were killed in La Plata, six in Buenos Aires and two in its suburbs. The Red Cross said most of the victims had been elderly people who drowned in their homes.

So far, only half of the bodies have been identified and rescue workers fear the number of dead may rise as more bodies are found as the flood waters recede.

The Guardian (UK) has video…




As well all know from recent flooding in PA, as well as the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the immediate disaster is only the beginning for the victims, as they have to try and put their lives back together with rubble as a backdrop.  Then, add inept governments, and the people need all the help they can get.  Here is a link to the Argentine Red Cross, who can help with the victims if this disaster.

Barney Rubble Shot Dead!

Share

Bedrock resident Barney Rubble was shot dead in front of his son’s school today.

“This was a tragic incident” said the Bedrock SWAT commander.

But given the recent uneasiness over the Newtown school shooting it is understandable what happened.  My team acted appropriately and within the rules of engagement.

While the incident is still under the review no one denies that the facts are these:

Shortly before 3 pm local time Barney Rubble arrived at the Bedrock Middle school to pick up his son, Bamm-Bamm Rubble.  Because of the strike by Bedrock school bus drivers most students either were walking home or having their parents pick them up.

After arriving at the school Mr. Rubble stood in front of the building for a few minutes.  Not seeing his son he began to shout, “Bamm-Bamm!  Bamm-Bamm!” repeatedly.

At the first sounds of “Bamm-Bamm” school administrators, not knowing the source of the threatening sound had the school locked-down.  As per lock-down procedure a call was placed to Bedrock’s SWAT team.

Upon arriving at the school the SWAT team noticed a white male, approximately 35 years of age wearing a brown shirt and apparently no pants standing in front of the school with his arms raised in a threatening manner and shouting “Bamm-Bamm!”

Said a SWAT team member:

I checked the “School Shooter” app on my iPhone and he fit the profile.  White.  No pants.  Acting threateningly.  After canvassing the ground to ensure that no children were in the line of fire we proceeded to engage the suspect.

As frightened children watched from the windows of the school Rubble took a few steps towards the front entrance, still shouting “Bamm-Bamm!” when he was cut down by bullets.

“Dude” one child later told investigators

the top of his head like just freaking exploded!  His skull and brains went flying up in the air.  It was so cool.  I took a photo of it with my phone and uploaded it to Facebook.  It’s my cover photo now.

After officers verified that Rubble was dead the students were let out of the school.

A hysterical Bamm-Bamm Rubble was not allowed to approach his father’s body.

“You f*cking killed my father you b*stards!” he shouted before being restrained.

“I thought that language was a little inappropriate for a child that age.  But what do you expect with what they watch on TV nowadays” said a teacher.

Mrs. Rubble, after being informed of her husband’s death was given the chance to address the citizens of Bedrock.  Standing in front of a phalanx of cameras the newly-widowed Betty Rubble apologized for her husband’s actions.

While I grieve I recognize that he acted inappropriately.  I do not blame the authorities for my husband’s death.  I wish to thank the teachers of Bedrock Middle School for their quick thinking and I hope that today’s events will prevent further tragedies like this from happening.

The Mayor of Bedrock issued a statement thanking Mrs. Rubble for her correct attitude and closed with the hope that

in the future parents will refrain from calling their children “Bamm-Bamm.”  Perhaps a more friendly name like “Sunshine” or “World Peace” would be more appropriate.

As for the Bedrock school bus driver’s strike, representatives for union and management have postponed tomorrow’s round of negotiations out of respect for the trauma the children have suffered.

Former Senator, Arlen Specter, Dead at age 82

Share

Arlen Specter, long time US Senator from Pennsylvania has died at age 82.  Specter was a divisive figure among Conservatives, as he tended to vote for large government programs that made problems worse, not better.  Here is some AP video, via The Blaze…

In the end, Specter switched parties, and quite frankly, no one noticed the difference.  While I certainly feel for Specter’s family, as they obviously loved him, we cannot forget that Specter was a perennial champion of big government.  And, in the last election, his political career ended as the Democrats he allied himself with did not hand him the primary victory, and  he did not even get to run against a Republican.

Swedish Chef Shot Dead!

Share

Der Dee Derdy DerpPopular TV personality The Swedish Chef was gunned down by police at a DWI checkpoint last night. According to state troopers at approximately 1:27 am a BMV driven by the Swedish Chef approached the DWI checkpoint and was ordered to stop.

We approached said vehicle and asked the driver to turn off the ignition.  We then asked the driver if he had been drinking that night.  He responded by saying, “Gerpity derp derp.  Bort Bort Bort!”  Naturally none of us was able to understand this nonsense which raised our suspicions.

The Chef was then asked to egress from the vehicle, escalating the situation.

The first thing we noticed is that no one could see his eyes.  This made us think that maybe he was trying to hide the fact that he was on some sort of drug. 

Another officer at the scene verifies the tense situation.

The freak had a chicken in one hand and he was waving a meat cleaver in the other.  And he kept repeating “Bort bort bort” over and over again.  Naturally we assumed he was on horse tranquilizers which would have made him very dangerous.  So we drew our guns and told him to put the meat cleaver and the chicken down and to step away from the vehicle.

The Swedish Chef apparently ignored the troopers and according to eye witnesses took a few steps towards them, all the while still holding the chicken and meat cleaver and shouting “Bort bort bort!“It was then that troopers opened fire and the ensuing fusillade of bullets literally cut the chef in two.

He was still alive when I approached him. He had time to say “Aweenda shmure da froog’s legs” before he expired.  I don’t know what the hell that means. Probably drug speak of some kind.  Who knows with these junkies.

This marks the second loss in recent weeks for the Muppets, following closely upon the execution of Fozzie Bear by the Taliban.From the Greek island of Mykonos where he is vacationing with Miss Piggy, Kermit blamed the troopers for the tragedy and promised to set up a nonprofit foundation called “Justice for the Swedish Chef” whose proceeds will benefit his family.As for the troopers, many are expressing disbelief when told of the identity of the man they gunned down.“Swedish?  He sounded more Norwegian to me” said one.

Middle East Violence Escalates: Good Thing Everyone Loves us Because of Obama

Share

Or, should the post be titled, “Obama Fiddles While Middle East Burns?”  There has been a significant escalation in violence in the Middle East, as Muslims riot against freedom.  Here is a roundup from the blogosphere…

MUSLIMS ANTI-FREEDOM RIOTERS SET FIRE TO GERMAN EMBASSY IN SUDAN

Sudanese rioters react as a fire rages during a protest outside the German embassy in Khartoum, Sudan, Friday, Sept. 14, 2012, as part of widespread anger across the Muslim world. Germany’s Foreign Minister says the country’s embassy in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum has been stormed by protesters and set partially on fire.(AP Photo/Abd Raouf)

It bears noting this is northern Sudan – the Islamic north not the Christian South which voted by referendum and won (by a 99% margin) – the  secession of Southern Sudan (Christians, animists etc.  from the Jihadist North)>

“Sudan protesters set fire to German embassy” Reuters Septemebr 14, 2012

KHARTOUM (Reuters) – Sudanese demonstrators broke into the German embassy in Khartoum on Friday, raising an Islamic flag and setting the building on fire in a protest against a film that demeaned the Prophet Mohammad, witnesses said.

Police had earlier fired tear gas to try to disperse some 5,000 protesters who had ringed the German embassy and nearby British mission. But a Reuters witness said policemen just stood by when the crowd forced its way into Germany’s mission.

Demonstrators hoisted a black Islamic flag saying in white letters “there is no God but God and Mohammed is his prophet”. They smashed windows, cameras and furniture in the building and then started a fire, witnesses said.

Firefighters arrived to put out the flames.

Employees of Germany’s embassy were safe “for the moment”, Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said in Berlin. He also told Khartoum’s envoy to Berlin that Sudan must protect diplomatic missions on its soil, a foreign ministry statement said.

Black flag of Islam flies over U.S. embassy in Tunisia as America is targeted by angry mobs across the globe in day of chaos

A black Islamic flag is flying over the U.S. embassy in Tunisia after it was stormed by a mob of protesters today – as anger at an American-made anti-Islam film resulted in chaos across the world.

Symbols of America and U.S. embassies have been targeted around the globe in a fourth day of protest after Tuesday’s deadly raid on the American consulate in Libya.

In Tunisian capital Tunis, a mob overran the U.S. embassy compound, scaling the walls and setting fire to cars before tearing down the Stars and Stripes and replacing it with the symbol of Islam.

No U.S. staff were in the embassy in the city, where an American school has also been set on fire.

Two dead as protesters attack U.S. embassy in Tunisia

At least two people were killed and 29 others were wounded on Friday when police fought hundreds of protesters who ransacked the U.S. embassy in Tunisia in their fury over a film denigrating the Prophet Mohammad, state television said.

Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki condemned what he called “an attack against the embassy of a friendly nation”.

Tunisia expects Washington to guarantee around a fifth of the $2.2-2.5 billion its needs to borrow next year to help its economy recover after its revolution last year overthew its veteran leader and triggered the Arab Spring uprisings.

US GOVERNMENT NOW ACTING AS CENSORSHIP ARM OF ISLAMISTS

They’ve asked YouTube to “review” if the trailer for Innocence of the Muslims violates YouTube’s terms of service.

Obama administration officials also flagged the trailer to YouTube and asked the company to review whether it violated the website’s terms of service.

If we’re going to have anti-blasphemy laws, I want them official and passed by Congress and reviewed by the courts. I don’t want this executive-only implementation of a despicable law.

It seems that the world that was supposed to love Obama isn’t quite feeling it right about now.

Also, the MSM is still blaming an obscure video that no on has seen for the violence, and completely glossing over the fact that Islam permits no criticism of their religion whatsoever, and they are willing to kill to prevent it.

But that’s OK, at least they’re not Christians, right?

Michael Clarke Duncan Dead at age 54

Michael Clarke Duncan, who starred in films such as Armageddon and Green Mile, passed away today at age 54.  The Blaze has more details…

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Clarke Duncan, the hulking, prolific character actor whose dozens of films included an Oscar-nominated performance as a death row inmate in “The Green Mile” and such other box office hits as “Armageddon,“ ”Planet of the Apes“ and ”Kung Fu Panda,” is dead at age 54.

Clarke died Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he was being treated for a heart attack, said his fiancée, Reverend Omarosa Manigault, in a statement released by publicist Joy Fehily.

The muscular, 6-foot-4 Duncan, a former bodyguard who turned to acting in his 30s, “suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered,” the statement said. “Manigault is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time. Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date.”

It’s sad to see a man, who was reportedly a genuinely good human being, pass away so young.
