Iraq: Sunni militia leader arrested for bombings of Shi’ite pilgrims

But, but he fought against al-Qaeda! Doesn’t that mean he is a “moderate”? Sunni-Shi’ite Jihad Update: “Official: Iraq militia chief behind pilgrim blasts,” from AP, January 22 (thanks to Maxwell):

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi police arrested the local leader of a government-backed Sunni Muslim militia for planning the deadly bombings on Shiite pilgrims this week, Iraqi officials said Saturday.

If the Awakening Council leader is found guilty of the charges, it would affirm widespread government doubts about integrating the Sunni fighters into the nation’s security forces — despite their alliance with the U.S. against al-Qaida. It could also signal that the militia’s frustration about being sidelined by Iraq’s Shiite-dominated government may have finally reached a boiling point….

Thursday’s triple suicide bombings on the pilgrims outraged Shiite clerics who accused security forces of continually failing to outwit the insurgents and protect the Iraqi people. It also prompted a Sadrist lawmaker to renew offers to reassemble al-Sadr’s feared militia that is alleged to have engaged in rampant revenge killings of Sunnis for years….

Would he have been arrested for burning a Bible and making public “pronouncements against the Christian religion”? What do you think? “Man held in Koran burning inquiry,” from the Press Association, January 20 (thanks to Tziona):

A man has been arrested after a Koran was allegedly burned during an anti-Islamic rant, police have said.

He was reported to have stood on a street in Carlisle city centre on Wednesday making pronouncements against the Muslim religion in front of a large crowd.

The man is then alleged to have set fire to the Koran he was holding before discarding it on the floor and hurrying away. Officers arrived at the scene a short time later and are now investigating.

A spokesman for Cumbria Constabulary confirmed that a 32-year-old man has been arrested.

He added: “Just after midday on Wednesday, police received reports that a Koran was being burned by a man in Carlisle city centre. Police have seized the remains of the book and a 32-year-old male has been arrested on suspicion of using racially aggravated threatening words or behaviour. The man remains in police custody where he is helping officers with their inquiries.”…

Jihadist linked to group that killed five U.S. soldiers in Iraq arrested in Canada

The official complaint, quoted in the 13th paragraph, identifies this “Canadian” as a “jihadist.” Before that, we heard that he was “a Canadian man” who had been “linked to a militant group.” He could have been a militant Christian extremist, except for the facts that the incident took place in Iraq and that his name is Faruq Khalil Muhammad ‘Isa. Otherwise, this mainstream media story, like so many, seems intent on hiding or burying the jihadist aspect. “Canadian accused of conspiring to kill U.S. soldiers in Iraq,” by Bradley Bouzane and Stewart Bell for Postmedia News, January 19 (thanks to all who sent this in):

A Canadian man accused of being linked to a militant group whose attack killed five U.S. soldiers in Iraq — and who authorities say chillingly described the work of insurgent bombers as the “harvest” of “metal and flesh” — has been arrested in Edmonton.

Faruq Khalil Muhammad ‘Isa, 38, was arrested by RCMP officers Wednesday without incident on a U.S. provisional arrest warrant. U.S. Justice Department spokesman Dean Boyd said it was believed the suspect, who is a dual citizen of Canada and Iraq, had been living in the Edmonton area.

Muhammad ‘Isa is accused of “conspiring to kill Americans abroad” in connection with a bombing attack in Iraq in April 2009.

Authorities allege he is connected to a “multinational terrorist network” that has carried out numerous suicide attacks in Iraq.

The U.S. Justice Department said in a news release that it will seek the suspect’s extradition to the United States to deal with the charges. He is expected to make a court appearance Thursday.

There was never any direct threat to Canadians, said RCMP Assistant Commissioner Gilles Michaud, who heads the National Security Criminal Investigations section.

The RCMP’s national security unit in Edmonton conducted an “extensive investigation” after being tipped off by the FBI more than a year ago, he said.

“Basically we went full out to assist them,” Michaud said.

RCMP Sgt. Patrick Webb said the arrest took place Wednesday morning without incident in support of the FBI investigation.

“The RCMP’s role was simply to arrest him and detain him until he can make court appearances to answer to extradition,” said Webb.

Webb said he could not confirm how long Muhammad ‘Isa had been living in Edmonton.

Authorities say he has used as aliases the names Faruk Khalil Muhammad ‘Isa, Sayfildin Tahir Sharif and Tahir Sharif Sayfildin.

The official complaint that led to the charges, which was filed Jan. 14 in New York, said “a Tunisian jihadist, whose travel to and activities in Iraq were facilitated by the terrorist network, drove a truck laden with explosives to the gate of the U.S. military’s Forward Operating Base Marez in Mosul, Iraq.

“The jihadist exchanged fire with Iraqi police officers and then the American convoy that was exiting the base. The truck detonated approximately 50 yards from the gate, alongside the last vehicle in the U.S. convoy, leaving a 60-foot crater in the ground.”…

Scissors-wielding abortionist arrested on multiple murder counts

Just one word: Evil.

Pure, monstrous evil that was ignored for decades by state regulators:

An abortion doctor killed hundreds of babies by cutting their spinal cords with scissors after removing them from mothers late in their pregnancies, prosecutors said on Wednesday.

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams charged Dr. Kermitt Gosnell, 69, and nine associates with eight counts of murder, following a year-long investigation by a grand jury, whose report was unveiled on Wednesday.

The defendants are charged with first-degree murder in the cases of seven babies for which there is substantial evidence, Williams said.

Hundreds of other babies are likely to have died in Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic, which he operated from 1979 to 2010, Williams said.

A third-degree murder charge stemmed from the death of a mother who died from an overdose of anesthetics, he said.

“My comprehension of the English language can’t adequately describe the barbaric nature of Dr. Gosnell,” Williams said at a news conference.

Gabriel Malor’s chilling question answers itself: “Do you really believe that just this one facility went unregulated for fifteen years?”

The victims were largely poor, minority mothers and their babies.

Planned Parenthood heroine and eugenicist Margaret Sanger no doubt approves.

Et tu, John Holdren?

Baby Doc arrested. But will he be tried for all his crimes?

Posted by admin | Posted in The Capitol | Posted on 18-01-2011

In the span of a mere 48 hours, Haiti’s former dictator Jean-Claude
"Baby Doc" Duvalier has returned to the troubled island from exile in Paris and been
arrested in Port au Prince. France24
reported this afternoon that he had been indicted for theft, corruption, and
misallocation of funds. But those would be just a few of many crimes  Duvalier is accused of committing during his 15 years in office,
from 1971 to 1986.

"If he is going to be put on trial, he should be put on
trial [for] all the human rights violations," Javier Zuñiga, special advisor to
Amnesty International, told me by phone. "I think it will be travesty of
justice if [he is tried for] only corruption, and not the extensive torture and disappearances."

Like most
dictators, Duvalier took power promising to change the country’s
old, repressive ways. When he became president at age 19,
Duvalier was trying to clean up the fallout from his father’s messy regime.

Francois
Duvalier, a medical doctor turned autocrat nicknamed Papa Doc, had presided
over a literal reign of terror from 1956 to 1971. The army and the police ran the state and
opponents — or perceived opponents — were jailed and tortured. The press was shut
down and the economy tanked. Taking full advantage of U.S. fears of nearby communist Cuba, Papa Doc convinced Washington to look the other way. With his personal militia, the Tontons Macoutes — named for a traditional
Haitian boogeyman — haunting the streets, Duvalier père had little fear that his crimes would come back to
haunt him, as well.

Baby Doc,
as Jean-Claude was called, promised to do better. The young leader, who was considered "an overweight playboy of little intelligence," when he assumed
power  And he did, sort of, relax a
few laws. Press freedom, for example, moderately improved. But he turned out to be a cut off
the old block.

Baby Doc stretched his hands over the entire country by instituting a
system of prefects, or regional governors, who were answerable only to him. They carried out his political whims, everything from assassination to arrests
to intimidation. Overall, between 40,000 and 60,000 people are thought to have
died under the two Duvaliers, father and son

Life under
the Duvaliers revolved around the state’s security apparatus — the army and the
police. "Nobody was safe and nobody had any recourse if he or she was
arrested," recalls Zuñiga, who worked in the country during the Baby Doc years. He
describes the victims of torture and arrest that he saw
firsthand-near-paralyzed from abuse, or sick and dying from gangrene after
their wounds went untreated. "It really was hell." One particularly nasty
locale during the Baby Doc years was Fort Dimanche, an infamous prison outside
the capital, "where people were regularly tortured and conditions were very
bad," Human Rights Watch lawyer Reed Brody explained by phone from Brussels.

And if you escaped the fate of
intimidation, you were also likely to be poor. Very little economic development
took place during that time, says Zuñiga; social services were "almost
nonexistent." Thousands more fled Haiti-the first wave of ‘boat people’ to the
United States.

Then there
was the money that Jean-Claude Duvalier stashed away. Several million dollars
of the Duvalier fortune was frozen in Switzerland, meant to be returned home, though the verdict was later overturned. A case in the U.S. court
system also found Baby Doc liable for $ 500 million of misspent funds. (In a bit of twist,
the former president’s widow took much of his fortune when she divorced
him
in 1992, and Duvalier has bounced around semi-destitute in recent
years.)

Human
rights advocates hope that Duvalier will now be prosecuted for his numerous
crimes. "The strongest case in legal terms is the
embezzlement," says Brian Concannon Jr. of the Institute for Justice and
Democracy in Haiti. "For financial crimes, if you’ve got documentation, they’re
easy to prove. [And in this case, we] literally have boxes and boxes of
evidence."

The human rights abuses will
certainly prove more challenging. There has never been a systematic
investigation into what happened during the Baby Doc years, and what few
attempts have reached courts in the past two decades have met obstacles like
statute limits. A case in Paris, for example, was dismissed because the crimes
took place before the country’s relevant laws were in place. "Duvalier himself
was not doing the shooting and torturing," adding another complication, says
Concannon. "But it shouldn’t be that difficult to piece together."

So Haiti waits, as do many of
the exiles and victims who remember life under Baby Doc like it was yesterday."Our
country, I will say again, was done wrong by his trickery and repression, still
today, unpardonable actions," wrote the 82-year-old Haitian poet Gerald
Bloncourt, chairman of an exile group that has advocated to put Duvalier on
trial for over a decade, on his blog
on Jan. 17.

Speaking of Duvalier’s return, he beseeched, "I call upon all those
who share [our concerns] to rise and denounce this latest attack on our ‘Human
Rights,’ [i.e. Duvalier’s return] — this new and colossal contempt for the Haitian people."

Only In Texas: Men Arrested For DWI On A Horse

Posted by admin | Posted in The Capitol | Posted on 16-01-2011

Jonathan Turley passes along this story that could only happen in the Lone Star State:

Two men were arrested for driving while intoxicated on 6th Street Friday night.  One was riding a horse, while the other was riding a mule.

Austin police say the men were both intoxicated.  They were apparently trying to lure people out of bars and into the street to take pictures with them and their farm animals.

Bartender Brian Matthews thought he had seen everything; that is until he walked outside to have a cigarette Friday night.

“There were these two guys on horses, or mules, or something, outside of Shakespeare’s,” he said. “(It) looked like they were being pulled over for a DUI.”

Jose Rios, 33, and sidekick, Samuel Olivo, Jr., 48, parked their horse trailer near I-35 and 12th Street.  They rode their mule and horse down to 6th Street, inviting people to take pictures with them and their four-legged beasts.

Police video shows the two being stopped by officers.  In the video, Rios appeared to be so intoxicated that he could not even finish his sobriety test.

Austin police arrested the pair for DWI.

“The law has recently changed and the motor vehicle definition is a little ambiguous, but they felt that it would fit that criteria,” said Commander Jason Dusterhoft, of the Austin Police Department.

Video:

Turley reports that the charges have subsequently been reduced to public intoxication. Possibly because someone realized that a horse is not a “motor vehicle.”

Tucson Shooting Victim James Eric Fuller Will Undergo a Mental Health Evaluation after Arrested for Making Death Threats in ABC’s An ‘American Conversation Continued’ … Will MSM Blame Themselves for His Actions?

As if the situation could not get any more strange with the Tucson, AZ shooting and the days that follow … So much for civil discourse and will the MSM blame the LEFT, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik and themselves for  J. Eric Fuller’s actions?

Talk about bizarre beyond all comprehension. J. Eric Fuller, a Tucson shooting victim of the hideous Tucson Massacre, has been arrested for make a death threat to a Tea Party spokesman during a taping of ABC’s an ‘American Conversation Continued.’ He yelled “YOU’RE DEAD”during the taping to Trent Humpries of then AZ Tea Party.    J. Eric Fuller will also under go a mental health evaluation.

A Tucson mass shooting victim was taken into custody Saturday after yelling “you’re dead” at a Tea Party spokesman during the taping of an ABC-TV town hall event hosted by Christianne Amanpour.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Office said J. Eric Fuller, 63, was involuntarily committed to an undisclosed medical facility, NBC News reported. The Associated Press said he was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.

He faces charges of threats and intimidation and disorderly conduct, according to Tucson TV station KGUN.

After all the comments to refrain from harsh rhetoric, to try and be more peaceful, during ABC’s an ‘American Conversation Continued’ town hall meant to move on from the terrible happenings of one week ago …   J. Eric Fuller took a picture of Humphries and shouted, “You’re dead.” WHAT!

KGUN reported that Fuller took exception to comments by Republican state Rep. Terri Proud and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.

Fuller was in the front row and apparently became upset when Humphries suggested that any conversations about gun control should be delayed until all the dead were buried, KGUN reported.

Fuller took a picture of Humphries and shouted, “You’re dead.”

Some media reports said Fuller kept booing and making other remarks before deputies escorted him from the church.

So let’s understand the craziness. We have a gunman in Jared Loughner who by all accounts is “bat S#it” insane where numerous people have stated that he was a menacing individual and they feared that he would one day bring a gun to class. We have the evil Jared Loughner who was kicked out of a community college after doing the following VIDEO, yet he was never made to take a mental health eval. This evil punk then went on a shooting rampage that leaves 6 dead. We then have a bias sheriff who is agenda driven provide his opinion, rather than facts and evidence that it was political rhetoric from the RIGHT that was to blame, even though he had and there was zero proof.

Now we are witness to one of Loughtner’s shooting victims at a town hall setting meant to move on threaten another with death threats and he is sent for a mental health evaluation. Can it get any stranger? As Powerline states, ”isn’t the only untreated mental patient on the Left. And we haven’t even started talking about the New York Times’s columnists”.

So what will come from  J. Eric Fuller’s verbal death threats? Will the liberal MSM blame themselves for his actions seeing that ever since the evil acts of Jared Loughner, they have blamed the Right, Republicans, talk radio,Sarah Palin, Rush and Glenn Beck.

So who is to blame for  J. Eric Fuller’s death threats … can you say  J. Eric Fuller!!!

Arizona Shooting Victim Arrested For Threat Against Tea Party Leader

Posted by admin | Posted in The Capitol | Posted on 16-01-2011

One of the victims of last Saturday’s shooting, who had previously publicly blamed Sarah Palin and the Tea Party for what happened, was arrested last night at a town hall event after making death threats:

Two things are clear from Saturday’s ABC News town hall meeting in Tucson.  One:  Tucsonans are eager to move forward and recover from last week’s horrible shooting rampage.  And two:  that process is going to be slow and painful.   That latter point was driven home by the arrest of a shooting victim, who threatened a speaker during the taping of the program.

ABC News Anchor Christiane Amanpour hosted the remarkable gathering of victims, heroes, witnesses and first responders.  It was the first time most of them had been together since Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a Safeway parking lot, killing 6, and wounding or injuring 14 others — a rampage that happened one week earlier almost to the hour.

On the platform with Amanpour were Col. Bill Badger, who helped tackle gunman Jared Lee Loughner; Daniel  Hernandez, who ran to help wounded Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords while most people were ducking for cover, Patricia Maisch, who grabbed a magazine away from Loughner; Bill Hileman, whose wife, Susan, is still recovering from gunshot wounds.

On the front row was Kenneth Dorushka, who was shot shielding his wife from Loughner’s gunfire; and J. Eric Fuller, who was shot in the knee.

(…)

When Tucson Tea Party founder Trent Humphries rose to suggest that any conversation about gun control should be put off until after the funerals for all the victims, witnesses say Fuller became agitated.  Two told KGUN9 News that finally, Fuller took a picture of Humphries, and said, “You’re dead.”

(…)

The event wrapped up a short time later.  Deputies then escorted Fuller from the room.  As he was being led off, Fuller shouted loudly to the room at large.  Several witnesses said that what they thought they heard him shout was, “You’re all whores!”

Fuller, age 63, is a political operative who specializes in gathering petitions for ballot initiatives.   Before the program began, he passed out business cards to people sitting around him that read:
“Signatures
“Expediting Initiatives since 2006
“J. Eric Fuller
“Political Circulator.”

A Pima County Sheriff’s spokesman told KGUN9 News that the department has charged Fuller with one count of threats and intimidation, and said they plan to charge him with at least one count of disorderly conduct.  Humphries told KGUN9 News that he does plan to press those charges.

At the last word, Fuller has apparently been placed under mental health observation. Ironic considering that’s exactly what should’ve happened to Jared Loughner prior to January 8, 2011.

J. Eric Fuller, Tucson Shooting Victim Arrested at Town Hall Meeting For Threatening GOP Rep Terri Proud & Tea Party Spokesman Trent Humphries At ABC Taping … “You’re Dead”

One week after the Tucson, AZ tragedy and there is an arrest at a town hall meeting for death threats … So much for that call for peace, calm and tranquility in the aftermath of the shooting last week at the hands of Jared Loughner.

Tucson shooting victim J. Eric Fuller threatened Trent Humphries, the Pima County Tea Party leader, stood up to speak during the event. He was being very respectful. Trent told the audience that before we start placing blame on individuals we need to get all the facts.  J. Eric Fuller started screaming, “Trent Humphries you’re dead!” Oh and by the way, J. Eric Fuller is not a Tea Party member, he is not a Republican, he is not a conservative and he was not inspired by Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck Rush Limbaugh or bulls-eyes … HE IS A LEFTY! I guess it’s safe to say that J. Eric Fuller did not receive a “Together We Thrive” t-shirt at this past weeks memorial/pep rally.

How bizarre and ironic is it that one week from the terrible Tucson tragedy that left six dead and 14 injured, including US Rep Gabby Giffords (AZ-D), that one of the shooting victims would be arrested for making death threats in what was billed as a continuation of the Town hall meeting, after there was a memorial where there was a call for civility. Bizarre indeed.

J. Eric Fuller

VIDEO

The theme of the event was “An American Conversation Continued”–  the idea being to continue the conversation that a madman’s brutal rampage had interrupted.  So it was inevitable that the conversation would eventually turn to politics.   It did, toward the end, with Amanpour leading a discussion on a very touchy but obvious topic:  gun control.

That’s where the atmosphere turned tense.   When Tucson Tea Party founder Trent Humphries rose to suggest that any conversation about gun control should be put off until after the funerals for all the victims, witnesses say Fuller became agitated.  Two told KGUN9 News that finally, Fuller took a picture of Humphries, and said, You’re dead.”

When State Rep. Terri Proud (R-Tucson) rose to explain and clarify current and proposed gun legislation in the state, several people groaned or booed her.  One of those booing, according to several witnesses, was Fuller.   Witnesses sitting near Fuller told KGUN9 News that Fuller was making them feel very uncomfortable.

The event wrapped up a short time later.  Deputies then escorted Fuller from the room.  As he was being led off, Fuller shouted loudly to the room at large.  Several witnesses said that what they thought they heard him shout was, “You’re all whores!”

Fuller, age 63, is a political operative who specializes in gathering petitions for ballot initiatives.   Before the program began, he passed out business cards to people sitting around him that read:
“Signatures
“Expediting Initiatives since 2006
“J. Eric Fuller
“Political Circulator.”

Leftist J. Eric Fuller was charged with with threats and intimidation and he also will be charged with disorderly conduct. Outspoken Leftist propagandist Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik could not be reached for comment as to who he could falsely blame. As Protein Wisdom states, “the new civility” from the Left continues.
