Sarah Palin: ‘Waterboarding Is How We Baptize Terrorists’

PA 19674070 Sarah Palin: Waterboarding Is How We Baptize Terrorists

 

 

SARAH Palin was once destined to be the president of the USA’s VeePee. She would be a heartbeat away from becoming Leader of the Free World. Recently the former Alaskan governor spoke to the National Rifle Association’s yearly convention in Indianapolis.

The highlight of her chat was he telling the good folks “waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”

BEHOLD! The Huge Satanic Statue Made For The Oklahoma State Capitol

Oklahoma State Capitol 1 BEHOLD! The Huge Satanic Statue Made For The Oklahoma State Capitol

 

A 7-FT TALL STATUE of Satan could soon be sat on the lawns before the Oklahoma State Capitol next to a monument of the ten commandments, pictured below. Note the spellings of “SABETH” and “MAIDSERAUNT”. The Divine hand was big on Creation but not too hot on spelling.

A Few Highs And Lows From Nick Griffin’s Hacked Twitter Account

THE hacker with the Anonymous group known only as @Anon_0x03 has gained access to the Twitter account of British National Party’s chairman Nick Griffin. You’ll remember him from that time before Nigel Farage became the go-to face of intolerance. Onr theory is that UKIP leader Farage’s sole mission is to destroy the BNP vote. After all, UKIP is an empty vessel into which people can pour their pet hates and prejudices.

So. What did the hackers twitter from @nickgriffinmep?

@jamiesont quips:

Nick Griffin has apologised to his followers for a series of grammatically correct & inoffensive tweets posted after his account was hacked.

Adding:

 just wish someone funny who could really have gone to town had hacked it.

HackRead records a few of the tweets, which are crude and could have been much funnier:

 

nick griffin hacks A Few Highs And Lows From Nick Griffins Hacked Twitter Account

 

The Telegraph reports an exchange that suggests the hacker had little idea what a Nick Griffin is:

What are you actually going to do with the account now you’ve got it? @bnp”one user tweeted to the hacker.

No sure, any ideas? I don’t really give a ****. It was just a random target. I’m not even from GB,” the hacker replied

The Journal says Griffin’s website, nickgriffinmep.eu, and communications.bnp.org.uk have also been hacked.

We leave you with a few more tweets:

Nick Clegg Has Cojones The Size of A Nanny From Belgium

PA 18068552 Nick Clegg Has Cojones The Size of A Nanny From Belgium

 

 

THANKS to Nick Clegg (wage:  £134,565 a year) and his wife Miriam González Durántez (wage: 500,000 a year), we know how to raise our children. Miriam interrupted a speech by Nick on how men should get time off work to care for the kids (he says men must see themselves are carers not breadwinners) to tells us that men who look after their children have “more cojones”.

He told the audience of working parents that he and Miriam shared the work after their birth of their three sons, Antonio, Alberto and Miguel.

Nick has cojones the size of a nanny from Belgium.

Who Would You Trust More, Paddington Bear or Farage?

farage paddington Who Would You Trust More, Paddington Bear or Farage?

 

WHO wants to be Nigel Farage’s PA? That’s not euphemism. You won’t have to sleep with him. He’s not a Cabinet Minister.

Granted, his current PA does get to inhale his man-of-the-people’s breath after a night in the Pint & Castella. HE;s his wife – his German-born wife. And he can enter the contest to find her replacement on the website of recruitment firm Xpat Jobs.

Enemy Of Free Speech Jim Ardis Executes The ‘Beyond Parody’ Defence

Screen shot 2014 04 23 at 12.10.36 Enemy Of Free Speech Jim Ardis Executes The Beyond Parody Defence

 

THE Journal Star has caught up with Jacob Elliott. He was arrested in the war on free speech. The Mayor or Peoria, one Jim Ardis, was very upset at the fake Twitter account, @Peoriamayor. He called the police.

Rather than laugh at Mr Ardis and advise him to respond to the spoof blog with humour and smiles, the police thought he had made a good point. How very dare anyone mock the Mayor. You can mock Jesus, God, Mohammed and even George Clooney, but mocking the Mayor of Peoria is a step too far.

Three judges agreed.

Judge Kirk Schoebein signed off on a warrant seeking subscriber information from Twitter.

Judge Lisa Wilson approved a warrant for Comcast to find out where the person who used the Internet to access Twitter lived

Judge Kim Kelley signed the warrant to search the home of the alleged parodists.

Respect for the man and his office must be preserved.

War On Free Speech: Starkville, Mississippi Aldermen Want Twitter Parodist Arrested

The Daily Dolt notes:

The two aldermen came under fire recently after instigating the removal of Starkville’s highly popular Chief Administration Officer Lynn Spruill without providing any reason for the coup other than Carver’s comment that he “prayed” about it and God told him to kick her to the curb (hence the parody handle @BenCarverPrays).

Hilary Benn Spent Enough For 720,479 Packets of Jammie Dodgers from Waitrose

pickles cookie Hilary Benn Spent Enough For 720,479 Packets of Jammie Dodgers from Waitrose

THERE’S an interesting little tactic that Labour MPs are trying to use in the House of Commons these days. To ask questions about how much a department is spending on this or that and then when they get the answer they can chunter along about how poor widows are being thrown out of their homes over the bedroom tax so that Tory Ministers can spend £x on whatever it is they just asked about.

You know, Yah! Boo! The Tories and only Labour looks out for the working stiff.

This is a tactic that has just received some blowback as the answer given to the question, well, how much has Eric Pickles been spending on catering (given his size this would add another level of joy to the chuntering) was, well, a whole hell of a lot less than Labouir did when they were in power.

basingstoke 300x199 Maria Miller LOL: I can only hope that over time the focus will once again by on Basingstoke

‘The Dallas of Hampshire’

MARIA Miller has written an open letter to the people of Basingstoke, Hampshire:

“The last 16 months have been difficult. As you know, I have been working hard for Basingstoke and also doing my job as a Cabinet minister. During this time, I have been subject to an intense Parliamentary inquiry looking at extensive personal details of my family life, as a result of allegations made by a Labour MP.

“That committee has now published its report and I have accepted their findings in full. I have unreservedly apologised for the way I handled and apporached [sic] the inquiry.

“And I am pleased that the committee has fully dismissed all of the allegations made against me. Separately, I have already apologised and repaid an over-claim of my expenses, having myself drawn the committee’s attention to the matter immediately I was aware of it.

“I have always sought to do the best job that I can in representing the people of Basingstoke in Westminster. I am devastated that this has happened, and that I have let you down.

“I can only hope that over time the focus will once again by on Basingstoke.”

Free Speech Watch: Maria Miller, Leveson And State Bullying To Keep The Facts Secret

PA 19146415 Free Speech Watch: Maria Miller, Leveson And State Bullying To Keep The Facts Secret

 

MARIA Miller is the Tory MP and Culture Secretary. She is involved in discussions over the future of press regulation. She wants more of it. She is just one of the cross-party elite (and you can include artists in this illiberal group) who like free speech but want to insert a “but” after it. She wants limits on freedom.

Mrs Miller’s in trouble over her expense.

Kathryn Hudson, the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner looked at Miller’s expenses. She did the sums and found that Mrs Miller’s claims for mortgage interest payments exceeded her allowance by £44,000. Mrs Hudson made her report. Mrs Miller issued a 75-word apology. Miller agreed to repay £5,800 in over-claimed allowances and apologised for her “attitude” to the official inquiry.

Media Should Be ‘Controlled’ To Stop BNP Demolisher Nigel Farage Says Yasmin Alibhai-Brown

farage bnp Media Should Be Controlled To Stop BNP Demolisher Nigel Farage Says Yasmin Alibhai Brown

 

NIGEL Farage has achieved nothing in his time as Ukip leader other than promote himself. His mission is to gift the two biggest parties an identity and sense of purpose. His comments, such as a recent sense of pride in having “taken a third of the BNP’s support”, seducing those bigots “frustrated” and “upset” by their changing communities, serve to demolish the once feared BNP and make Ukip wholly unelectable.

If Farage leaves, perhaps under a scandal, what then for Ukip?

Nothing. The party will disintegrate.

Hans Klein, the old charmer, died on December 2 1996.

A trained journalist, a diplomat, press officer of the Olympic Games in Munich, close friend of Franz Josef Strauss and development minister. He became Helmut Kohl’s government spokesman in April 1989.  It was job he called: “The worst suicide mission to which I have ever gotten myself into.” After the Berlin Wall carbon let his chancellery minister Rudolf Seiter inform the media. ”

We need more charmers like him in politics.
