Department of Homeland Security Issues Terrorist ID Cards
Department of Homeland Security today said it was instituting a bold new series of security measures, including issuing an official “proof of terrorism” I.D. card.

“All potential terrorists must have the terrorist I.D. card in order to be barred from boarding,” said Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano. “If you want to get on the no-fly list you’ll need a completed application and the $25 fee. Ms. Napolitano said that while the terror suspect’s father had warned the U.S. about his son weeks before the incident, the Homeland Security Dept. was tightening rules in that area as well: “In the future, it will be necessary for a terrorist’s mom and dad to warn us before we take it seriously.” The Homeland Security chief said that her department would continue to crack down on the primary threat to air safety: shampoo.More

IDENTITY cards will be issued within four years after ministers yesterday made them the centrepiece of their programme for the run-up to the general election. A fierce battle over the issue became certain when Tony Blair backed compulsory ID cards as essential to the fight against terrorism, illegal immigration and organised crime.MORE

UK Compulsory National Identity Cards (ID Cards) Justifications To Fight Crime and Terror

“Whatever they do, it is our determination that they will never succeed in destroying what we hold dear in this country” – Tony Blair, 7/7/2005

Following the 11th September atrocity, the UK Government immediately began talking about introducing ID Cards. We were told they would help fight crime and specifically terrorism. In fact this was simply a case of Blunkett shamelessly taking advantage of the post-911 panic. Even David Blunkett himself didn’t really believe that ID cards will make a significant impact on the terrorists. In July 2002 he let this slip:

“Yes, I accept that it is important that we do not pretend that an entitlement card would be an overwhelming factor in combating international terrorism. That is precisely what I said three times on the radio within a fortnight of 11 September, and I reiterated it this afternoon.”

There is no evidence to support the claim that ID Cards will significantly cut down on crime and terror. Many other countries have ID Cards and still suffer from crime and terrorism. Spain has compulsory Identity Cards. That did nothing to prevent the Madrid massacre. In Northern Ireland, the authorities knew for years the identities of many of those behind the terrorist campaigns. The bombings continued.

The terrorists want to destroy our way of life. If our response to terrorism is to panic and give away the civil liberties we hold dear then the terrorists will have won. ID Cards might actually increase the risk of terrorism by making people complacent. Any ID Card, no matter how technologically advanced, will be forged within a few years. It is the well-funded international terrorist organisations who will be the first to get such fakes.More

The Mexican government calls it the “Matricula Consular” identification card and they distribute it widely. Too widely, warns U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo (D-Colorado, 6th), who says the card could be used by terrorists to establish fictitious identities in the United States. Based on recent congressional testimony by the FBI on the validity of the Matricula Consular, Tancredo has written a letter to Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge urging him to issue a public statement denouncing the recognition and acceptance of the Mexican government’s identification card by any federal, state or local agency.”The US Government has done an extensive amount of research on the Matricula Consular, to assess its verifiability as a reliable means of identification. The Department of Justice and the FBI have concluded that the Matricula Consular is not a reliable form of identification, due to the nonexistence of any means of verifying the true identity of the card holder.”

McCraw’s testimony continued:

“As a result of these problems, there are two major criminal threats posed by the card, and one potential terrorist threat.”

And on the specific nature of the terrorist threat, the FBI says:

“Federal officials have discovered individuals from many different countries in possession of the Matricula Consular card….The ability of foreign nationals to use the Matricula Consular to create a well-documented, but fictitious, identity in the United States provides an opportunity for terrorists to move freely…without triggering name-based watch lists More

Somalis Who Invaded Lewiston Declare Open Season On White People

This same kind of thing happens in Columbus/Central Ohio, where a group of Somali punks follow and surround usually a lone white female, intimidating. I know me and one of my friends stopped at a drive thru/carry out to get something to drink one summer and a lone young in early 20’s or so white female ran over to us frantically asking for help, telling us that she had been followed for about a mile or so while she was walking. My Friend told her to hop in the car and that she was safe now. Meanwhile while we where leaving the parking lot said group of Somali punks, walked by staring us all down. My friend slammed on breaks acting like he grabbed something from backseat and said bring it on if you want some. Needless to say they walked away. We took this girl to her house or near by and made sure she was alright. This kind of thing happens all the time in town, and do you think anyone hears of it. Heavens No, it’s disgusting! They have attacked School Bus Drivers, Security breaking his arm or leg when bus driver called in for help.

Police investigate Somali attacks

By Mark LaFlamme, Staff Writer

LEWISTON — In the early evening on the first day of summer, a large group of Somali boys approached a woman on the corner of Ash and Pierce streets. According to police reports, they intimidated the woman and slapped her in the back of the head before scattering into the downtown.

Five days later, shortly after midnight, a man was accosted by a group of Somali boys outside the Big Apple on Main Street. Police reports say several members of the group punched the man and took money from him. They then fled in a car.

Later that night, a woman in her late 60s was beaten by a group of Somali boys and relieved of cash while walking in Kennedy Park.

Five nights later, another man was jumped by a group of similar description. He resisted the gang and was beaten badly. He required surgery.

Throughout the summer, similar reports have come into the Police Department. Witnesses and investigators say swarms of Somali boys, some as young as 8, others in their late teens, overwhelm solitary victims through sheer numbers.

"It's not gang activity in the traditional sense," Deputy Chief James Minkowsky said. "We're not seeing the colors or the monikers, but it's still a gang mentality."

Often, these gang members carry sticks and rocks with which to intimidate their victims. There are often four or five of them, sometimes as many as a dozen. Typically, they threaten or beat their victims until they give up the goods: money, bicycles, cell phones, prescription drugs, or other items of value.

Then they scatter.

"By the time the call gets to us, the group has dispersed," Minkowsky said.

The attacks continued all summer; more than a dozen were reported to police. There were more in the fall and a series of them in recent weeks. In each attack, the victim is one who may have appeared weak to the group that descended on them.

"They single out a person who is walking alone. The victim is often intoxicated," Minkowsky said. "Or he might be small. They look for someone who is not likely to fight back or present much of a challenge."

On the first day of December, a man walking through Kennedy Park after leaving a Park Street club said he was attacked by four Somali males. The group came at him from behind, knocked him down and stole prescription drugs and $150 in cash. That man told police it was the second time he was attacked in such a fashion. The first time, he was able to escape.

Islamic mosque built at 9/11 Ground Zero

A new Islamic mosque will open its doors just steps from Ground Zero where Muslim terrorists murdered 2,751 people in the name of Allah on Sept. 11, 2001 – and its leading imam, who conducts sensitivity training sessions for the FBI, has reportedly blamed Christians for starting mass attacks on civilians.

The five-story building at Park Place, just two blocks north of the former World Trade Center site, was the site of a Burlington Coat Factory. But a plane's landing-gear assembly crashed through the roof on the day 19 Muslim terrorists hijacked the airliners and flew them into the Twin Towers in 2001.

Now Muslim worshippers currently occupy the building, and they plan to turn it into a major Islamic cultural center.

"The men and women stand up, raise their hands on either side of their head, murmur 'Allahu akhbar,' bow and kneel again," reports Spiegel Online.

"Only in New York City is this possible," Daisy Khan, executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, or ASMA, told the magazine. Khan is the wife of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder of ASMA.

They have leased the new prayer space as an overflow building for another mosque, Masjid al-Farah, at 245 West Broadway in TriBeCa, where Rauf is the spiritual leader. Just down the street, the Museum of Jewish Heritage honors victims of the Holocaust, and St. Peter's Church, New York's oldest Catholic house of worship, is located around the corner.

Rauf has announced his plans to turn the building into a complete Islamic cultural center, with a mosque, a museum, "merchandising options," and room for seminars to reconcile religions, "to counteract the backlash against Muslims in general, " Speigel reports. The project may cost as much as $150 million. MORE

I think I've seen it all now, as far as being PC

I think I've seen it all now, ok this is just stupid. Whats with this, The Name of a Country [Nigeria] has to be censored now because It just might offend someone? On Yahoo Buzz?

I was reading this article Nigerian President's Absence Stymies Foreign Firms That was discussing The government of President Umaru Yar'Adua said this week that Nigeria's leader, undergoing treatment for a heart condition in Saudi Arabia, was responding to treatment, addressing weeks of speculation about his health. "It is only his doctor that can determine or say when he will come back," Information Minister Dora Akunyili told reporters. The news left many foreign firms here, including U.S. oil company Chevron Corp. and Royal Dutch Shell PLC, in limbo as key oil licenses are set to expire.' Go to link above for full story. I buzzed it up on Yahoo "buzz" and this is what I got:

Wall Street Journal - Submitted: 27 hours ago
Foreign companies, already familiar with corruption and violence in n****ia, are grappling with the absence of President Umaru Yar'Adua, who is undergoing treatment for a heart condition in Saudi Arabia.

Have blacks and people gotten so defensive and Offened by the name of a Country that they have to * * * letters? I wonder if the founder of that country will be brought up on Hate Crime Charges?

100-Year-Old Sex Offender About to Go Free

(Dec. 10) — Everything that pedophile Theodore Sypnier has to show for his 100 years on earth is packed in a single duffel bag as he prepares to begin a new chapter in life: freedom. It’s a chapter that prosecutors, judges and others who know him never wanted — or expected — to see written. New York’s oldest registered sex offender is scheduled to move by week’s end out of a Buffalo halfway house for released inmates 10 years after his last arrest, as Sypnier prepared to shed the closely monitored lifestyle of the halfway house, its director warned that the spry and active Sypnier has not changed from the manipulator who used his grandfatherly charm to snare and rape victims as young as 4.
“Whether he’s 100 or 101 or 105, the same person that was committing these crimes 10, 25, 30 years ago still exists today and has an unrepentant heart,” said the Rev. Terry King, director of Grace House, which has twice taken Sypnier in from prison. “He is someone that we as parents, as members of the community, any community, really need to fear.”
A former daughter-in-law said he is not likely to get the chance.
Being grandfatherly was how the 5-foot-5, 150-pound Sypnier found his victims, authorities say. After his most recent arrest at age 90 on charges of raping and sodomizing a 4-year-old girl and her 7-year-old sister, his neighbors in the suburb of Tonawanda, “Those children crawled into bed with me because they were frightened, but there was never any sexual hanky-panky,” Sypnier told the News.

Ohio executes inmate with 1-drug lethal injection

Biros was sent to death row in 1991 for killing and dismembering the body of 22-year-old Tami Engstrom, leaving her body parts scattered in parts of Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Ohio executed a killer Tuesday by performing the nation’s first lethal injection using a single drug, a supposedly less painful method than previous executions that required three drugs. The execution team seemed to struggle with shunts in Biros’ arms to intravenously inject the drugs, taking about 30 minutes and pricking the condemned man at least a half-dozen times. Struggles by Ohio’s execution teams to find suitable veins in other recent executions and attempts, including in September when Gov. Ted Strickland was forced to step in and stop attempts to execute Cleveland’s Romell Broom, has drawn national scrutiny and legal trouble for Ohio.

“Get That White Boy!”

For the victims, it was a terrifying experience — somebody shouts “get that white boy” and then they are surrounded by teens and young adults spitting out racial taunts, laughing, pummeling them with fists and kicking them in the head.
For the suspects in the attacks during the summer and fall in downtown Denver, the muggings were little more than pranks, they say, in which they stole money to rent hotel rooms for partying or beat someone up just because they were white and assumed to have money and to be drunk and defenseless.

One thing victims and attackers have in common: Both will be permanently changed by the events.

The victims, at least 16, suffered permanent facial damage, broken bones and cracked skulls. One was in a coma. The suspects, who thought they’d serve just days in jail if caught, are charged with felony robbery and bias-related crimes that could put them in prison for years.

“I don’t know how this thing became a racial thing,” said Ian Curwen, 31, now charged with two robberies and, like 34 others charged in the attacks, awaiting trial at the Denver County Jail. “I know some of these kids. They come from good families. They’re just kids being kids.”

Several of those charged in the wave of attacks have prior criminal histories, and some claim gang membership. At least two of those now awaiting trial were charged with similar crimes, also near downtown, in 2008, though charges were dismissed.

54 year old woman charged with ‘Hate Crime’, in Tinely Park Scarf Pulling

A suburban Chicago woman has been charged with a hate crime for allegedly yanking the head scarf of a Muslim woman in Tinley Park two days after the shootings at Fort Hood, Texas.

Valerie Kenney, 54, a bank teller from Tinley Park, appeared at the BridgeviewCourthouse today and was released on $5,000 bail. If convicted of the felony, Kenney faces up to 3 years in prison and a $25,000 fine. She is due back in court Dec. 3.

“I think (a charge of hate crime) sends the appropriate message that these kinds of race-based lash-outs are unacceptable,” said Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. “Every time something like (the Fort Hood shootings) happens, the Muslim community prepares for a backlash.”

What Do Most of These Banned COTA Riders Have In Common?

I’ve had the unfortunate experience a few years back of Cedric plopping his drunk butt next to me on the bus coming home from downtown. Thank God the bus driver pulled the bus over and told him to get off, but Cedric just happened to leave a calling card of peeing his pants while seated right before he got off the bus. To say the least I found another seat. Now to work on the pan handlers both on the bus and at bus stops downtown.

One of the riders, whom COTA identified as Cedrick Benard Green, was banned for life, “That actually took years of being a continual nuisance,” said COTA spokeswoman Beth Berkemer. “(Green was) assaulting passengers and operators.”
This year, police have jumped on the buses thousands of times and sometimes with K-9 dogs. The extra presence has resulted in quicker response to capture riders who get out of hand, Ramos reported. In 2008, 117 arrests were made on COTA buses. Eight of the riders were banned. This year, there have been 181 arrests, an increase of 54 percent. Seventeen riders were suspended, Ramos reported. The arrests ranged from assault to intoxication. Other repeated violent acts on a COTA bus can get passengers banned. more from 10tv news

Al Sharpton's Daughter, Ex-Wife Arrested for OH NO YOU DIDN'T

Rev. Al Sharpton's daughter told a police officer in a profanity-laden rant that she cut him off in traffic because she was in a rush to get to a theater, prosecutors said Monday.
"You were driving too slow. I have a play to go to," Dominique Sharpton told an officer who pulled her over Oct. 30, prosecutors told a Manhattan judge.
Dominique Sharpton and the civil rights activist's ex-wife, Kathy, face charges including resisting arrest after the Harlem traffic stop.

Defense lawyer Michael Hardy said the women simply exercised their free-speech rights to complain.
Police said Dominique Sharpton veered out of her lane, ran a red light and forced another car to swerve out of her way. After being ticketed, she and her mother cursed at the officers, ignored orders to return to their cars and resisted being handcuffed, according to a criminal complaint. Kathy Sharpton pushed an officer with her hands, police said in the complaint.
Hardy said he would ask the court to dismiss the charges, all misdemeanors or violations, calling them "frivolous" and saying there were no grounds for the arrest.
"Since when did a verbal objection become criminal in America?" Hardy said. More
