Jihad against the Jihad

Andrew Bolt noted today that there are many “home-grown” radical Islamist terrorists being discovered in the US nowadays. Whilst being born and even “bred” in the US, they are still following the fundamentalist hardline Islamic doctrine so fondly declared to by the likes of Osama bin Laden.

Here’s what I said there and will disseminate here also:

Yes it is true “that finally the ideology of radical Islam is effectively reaching into the United States to disaffected people here over the Internet.”

And much of that is on YouTube.

However, before blaming YouTube too much, which is such a valuable resource in so many other ways, why not visit YouTube Smackdown which is a site dedicated to flagging and removing terrorist videos from YouTube.

It really is up to us. Don’t rely on the government or corporations to do what we as citizens should be doing.

The link is always at the top of this blog. Hey, sure, probably no one bothers with it every day, but it’s worth a click once in a while.

Just for the record, they do link to videos out there right now on YouTube that people are watching… many of them our own home grown…

Operation YouTube Smackdown, anecdotally, has been very successful since it started. Much harder to find videos not already taken down, and there’s not a whole left out there. But the FBI has noticed “In the last six to nine months, the FBI has seen more domestic Islamist extremist activity than at any time since immediately right after 9/11.”

And stuff like the following is still out there as of now.

Worth a click of that mouse or not?

The Ultimate Peep Show

Having neither the time nor the energy to write anything new, congenitally lazy spot_the_dog recycles last year’s  Easter post.  Still hope it gives you a laugh, but!

The Ultimate Peep Show

Happy Easter!

Happy Birthday to Sarah Palin (via The Black Sphere)


A Birthday Tribute to Governor Sarah Palin.

By honorary-Australian-any-old-time-he-finally-manages-to-get-his-butt-down-here Kevin Jackson of The Black Sphere.

Couldn’t have said it any better myself, so I’m not even gonna try.  I may not be real smart, but I’m smart enough to know when I’m beat. 😉

Seriously.  READ IT.

And while you’re there, have a browse through the site & the left sidebar.  Lots of good stuff there, about Kevin and what he’s about, about others on his team & how to support them.  Heaps good links ‘n’ stuff, plus Obama photoshops galore.  Plus the Black Sphere Radio Show links (which I’m not smart enough to embed directly – failed the “fetch” unit an’ all).

Bonus! There’s a Perth connection (there’s always a Perth connection, watch any Perth news broadcast, ask any0ne sheltering a piece of Skylab in their back shed, ask John Glenn!) , as one of Kev’s team members Dave (now in Texas)  lived in Mt Pleasant (a Perth suburb) in the early 70’s whilst his father, a Geophysicist, worked out in the Great Sandy.

Perth/Western Australia and North Carolina – the two main nexuses (nexii?) of the universe.  Forget that “six degrees of separation” stuff, with WA and NC there’re never more than two or three degrees of separation between any major world event and these two places.  Honest.

Now.  Go away and read.

McCain’s Perfect Choice for a Running Mate: Governor Sarah Palin

While most of the pedantic, two-dimensional, inside-the-box-thinking, conservative political hacks are touting Tom Ridge for the slot (Not a bad guy, but…), David Freddoso notes a far superior choice has been proposed: The Republican Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin.

I believe this is a truly inspired idea. Gov. Palin ran as an anti-corruption outsider, and handily defeated a corrupt and entrenched Republican political machine. Plus, at 44, she would almost totally wipe the “age issue” McCain has off the slate, and since Obama is only two years her senior, there is no way they could attack her for her youth and inexperience: She has much more executive experience than Senator Obama has.

Not to mention the fact that, she’s a gorgeous woman who exudes mass quantities of charisma…


and has a super-solid family life.


Dibs on the eldest daughter! LOL!

This inspired choice would allow McCain to actually capitalize on his “maverick” persona, as Gov. Palin shook Alaska politics to the core: She’s a charming, charismatic woman, but she can also play with the big boys and kick ass.

What say ye?

UPDATE: Things are looking optimistic!

UPDATE II: Welcome to all 4500 8000 40,000 in the past few hours (so far!) people visiting us from Google. We’re a fairly opinionated right-wing blog, and you might like to take a look at our “About” page. You might also be interested in our other coverage of Sarah Palin and whether she becomes a prospective Vice President of the United States. You can find this coverage here and here. Personally, I hope she does, but you can feel free to debate the idea in comments below. All first comments are moderated, but unless you either insult or use severe profanity (and I mean severe by my standards, which generally only means the C U Next Tuesday word or the implication that someone has had a rather enjoyable erotic experience with someone who has borne a child), however if you come up with a new one, I may simply delete your comment. I, and all other contributors to this blog are more than fair in what we permit.

UPDATE III: Nayr Drahcir, don’t bother even trying. You will not be published.

UPDATE IV: A lot of people must like Palin.

UPDATE V: More coverage of Governor Sarah Palin and a theme song here.

UPDATE VI: Funniest observation on the announcement yet: “Put Obama and Palin on a basketball court one on one. Winner takes all!”

UPDATE VII: [spot_the_dog] No, we do not have any pictures of “Sarah Palin + Naked,” nor do we have any of “Sarah Palin + Swimsuit.” In the past 24 hours, there have been 157 separate searches on this site for “Sarah Palin Swimsuit,” and 161 separate searches for “Sarah Palin Naked.” I repeat, we have no bathing suit, swim suit, bikini, or naked pictures of Sarah Palin. What kind of people do you think we are, anyway? 😉

UPDATE VIIa: [spot_the_dog] Ace has noticed a similar search phenomenon on his blog and has a theory…

UPDATE VIII: A well-rounded view of the selection of Sarah Palin for the Vice President Nomination can be found here.

UPDATE IX:  We got it!  YES!  Nude photo of Sarah Palin right here!  (C’mon.  You know you want to click.)

UPDATE X: Feel free to visit our main page and read the latest posts we’ve written.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year

Perth’s Best Tacky Christmas Display

Imagine 40,000 twinkling fairy lights painstakingly synchronised to what may well  be the most excruciating “music on hold” tune in the world (you can tune in to the soundtrack on your car radio as you drive past – this is just one of the synchronised lights & music combos)…

From Here, It’s All Downhill

I love Batman, he’s the greatest Superhero to ever grace this earth, and even Gotham City.

So how did I react at being given a pair of bat earrings for Christmas?


All at several decibels above safe sound…
