Joe Biden Speaks; Islamic Flag Over White House Predicted;Terror in Europe; One Nation Rally; Final Exams Being Abandoned; Al-Qaeda-style Global Warming Ad; Ahmadinejad's Proclamation;

Politico reports on Joe Biden saying: “Look up and down the Republican ticket. This is not your parents' Republican party.This is not the same breed of cat, man,” Biden said. “The choice throughout this county is between two philosophies that are really stark, and its one that is especially on display here in California."
Newsbusters opines: You have to wonder what on earth ABC’s “This Week” host Christiane Amanpour is thinking by holding a so-called town hall meeting this close to a pivotal midterm election.
On the Oct. 3 broadcast of “This Week,” the brainiacs at ABC determined it would be appropriate to pitch Christian leaders again moderate and extremist Muslims.
Perhaps the most alarming statement on Amanpour’s program came from Anjem Choudary, a former British solicitors and Muslim cleric that spokesman for the group Islam4UK. Choudary contends eventually you'll see global Islamic rule, including here in the United States.
“We do believe as Muslims the East and the West will be governed by the Sharia,” Choudray. “Indeed we believe that one day the flag of Islam will fly over the White House. Indeed, there's even an oration of the Prophet where he said, ‘The day of judgment will not come until a group of my...’”  [As Barack Obama said, "words, just words?"]

CSPAN is airing the leftist “One Socialist Nation” rally in Washington DC.  [In another example of why we cannot believe the liberal media to tell us the truth....]
Unfortunately, they didn’t have a good crowd shot of the turnout… So they used a photo from a Glenn Beck tea party rally.  This is despite the fact that thousands of supporters were given free rides by unions and the NAACP to the rally.   See for yourself at:
[Think this isn't serious?  It is conservative principles against Socialism, as so openly displayed by this video.  The Socialists and Communists are no longer willing to wait.  They see this election as their best chance to do that which Ronald Reagan warned us to prevent. This could be why CNN chose to use the Glenn Beck photos....  See for yourselves.]
The Daily Callers posts this: As the ralliers began to disperse from the “One Nation” rally around 4 p.m., one thing was immediately clear: the area around the Lincoln Memorial had become a landfill.

The Boston Globe reports: Across the country, there is growing evidence that final exams — once considered so important that universities named a week after them — are being abandoned or diminished, replaced by take-home tests, papers, projects, or group presentations.
In the spring term at Harvard last year, only 259 of the 1,137 undergraduate courses had a scheduled final exam. 
Courses were simply assumed to include a seated, three-hour final exam; any professor who wished to opt out had to request permission. But that wasn’t happening, Harris said, forcing the registrar’s office to track down professors each semester, only to learn that, no, they were not planning on a final exam. So starting this fall, the onus has been flipped: The university will assume there will be no finals in courses. Any professor who actually wants to hold one will need to say so. [Well, we can't put stress on the students, now - can we?  Surely their jobs in real life will protect them from such stress.... ]
From Powerline: We wrote last night about the fact that Osama bin Laden has joined the anti-global warming movement. If this video is any guide, the environmentalists are already adopting al Qaeda-style tactics. [People are given the right to choose to cut carbon or not.  However, those who choose not to participate are summarily dismissed by being blown up on the spot, blood spatter and all.] The video was produced by the 10:10 campaign, [the 10:10 Global Organization] a group that seeks to persuade people to reduce their carbon consumption (i.e., standard of living) by 10 percent.

As the Telegraph reports, the 10:10 video "has revealed the snarling, wicked, homicidal misanthropy beneath its cloak of gentle, bunny-hugging righteousness." That is, I think, a fair description. See for yourself:
Fox News adds this: Emaciated polar bears clutching to melting icebergs. Smokestacks fading to reveal wind turbines and clear air. These are the kinds of images you typically see in a TV spot for climate change awareness or clean energy use.
But exploding children?
That's precisely what's depicted in a new ad released Friday by British clean energy group 10:10, ironically titled "No Pressure."
Carey Campbell, chairman of Virginia's Independent Green Party, expressed shock when he heard a description of the video: "Holy cow, those people are crazier than a loon! Drunk on moonshine!"
Just hours after the film was posted, 10:10 removed the ad from its website and issued an apology.
"With climate change becoming increasingly threatening, and decreasingly talked about in the media, we wanted to find a way to bring this critical issue back to the headlines whilst making people laugh," the statement read, so the group enlisted a comedy writer to put the concept together.
Many people found the resulting film extremely funny, but unfortunately some didn't and we sincerely apologise [sic] to anybody we have offended."

Yahoo News reports: Iran's president Sunday called for U.S. leaders to be "buried" in response to what he says are American threats of military attack against Tehran's nuclear program.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is known for brash rhetoric in addressing the West, but in a speech Sunday he went a step further using a deeply offensive insult in response to U.S. statements that the military option against Iran is still on the table.
"May the undertaker bury you, your table and your body, which has soiled the world," he said using language in Iran reserved for hated enemies. The crowd of military men and clerics in the town of Hashtgerd just west of the capital chuckled at the president's insult and applauded. The speech was broadcast by both state television and the official English-language Press TV, but the latter glossed over the insult in the simultaneous translation.

  1. Regarding the trash-laden memorials post "One Nation" rally...why doesn't it surprise me that the same people who want someone *else* to pay for their way in life also want someone *else* to clean up their mess?! It's just a total lack of respect for self and others!

  2. Haha! Cancel finals week? You have to be joking! All this talk and concern that other nations are outpacing America in terms of education...and the answer is to dumb down our system even more?! Bah -- academia!

  3. Lots of idiots out there...why is it that most of them are liberal loonies ?! The main stream media just will not let go of their "agenda" for the rest of us...thanks for insight on many subjects.
