1st Islamic US House Member Carries Much Radical Islamist Baggage

2007-01-04T11:38:16.661-08:00

***RELIGION OF PEACE UPDATE***Keith Ellison will be sworn in as United States Congressman from Minnesota’s 5th District, a prestigious title indeed. But prior to him getting to this position, he has carried much radical Islamist baggage – the kind of baggage that could make him (or anyone else) unworthy of such a title. Considering his actions with America’s live-in enemies, whilst running for office and even after being elected, we can most probably expect these dangerous associations of Ellison to continue well into his term. During Ellison’s campaign for U.S. Congress, the issue of his relationship with the Nation of Islam (NOI) was brought up repeatedly. NOI, under the leadership of Louis Farrakhan, for decades, has been the perpetrator of countless verbal and written attacks against the Jewish community.However apologetic Ellison appeared to be, his words ring false, as he proceeded to cavort with those that not only exhibit the same kind of hatred as the NOI, but that have longstanding ties to terrorist groups as well. And he continues to do so. Much of the money that was funneled into the coffers of Ellison’s campaign can be traced to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization that has ties to Hamas. In June of 1994, three leaders of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), a group that was the brainchild of Hamas deputy Mousa Abu Marzook (Marzouk), incorporated CAIR. One of the leaders was CAIR’s Executive Director and, himself, a Hamas supporter, Nihad Awad.http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=26284**BIG BAZOO's take: America could be heading down the proverbial slippery slope by electing Islamic Represenatatives with connections to terror groups in the Middle East...to say so is not racist or bigotted.....just practical....Keith Ellison has chosen to pledge his allegiance to the Koran....a book that calls for the Apartheid System of Law known as Shari'a Law....we will be watching who donates $$ to this man's causes and will follow the money trail...we predict that trail will lead back to terror!!keith+ellison michigan+5th+district islamist islamic+house+member koran antisemitism cair [...]



Romney to Submit Paperwork for 2008 Bid

2007-01-03T01:29:44.991-08:00

(image) Gov. Mitt Romney this week will submit the necessary paperwork to form a presidential exploratory committee, but not until funeral services for former President Gerald R. Ford have concluded, according to a top aide familiar with his plans.

Romney will file by Wednesday with the Federal Election Commission, the aide said, a registration that will allow the Massachusetts governor to raise and spend money in pursuit of the 2008 GOP nomination.

Romney, like Ford, is from Michigan. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, have already taken the same step.

Romney ended a 10-day vacation at his home in Utah on Monday, and he had intended to file his paperwork on Tuesday, the first business day of the new year. But Ford's death on Dec. 26 triggered a mourning period that will close federal offices and the U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday, and the former president will be buried Wednesday in Grand Rapids, Mich.


Romney aides believe the governor, the son of George Romney, a 1968 presidential candidate and the former governor of Michigan, can find a following as a youthful alternative to McCain and a more conservative candidate than Giuliani.

If successful, Romney would become the first Mormon elected president.

BIG BAZOO's take: Romney is the 1st and only bona fide conservative to enter the race that has a chance to win!!...His discipline and ability to stay on message has been impressive although under the radar.....If he sticks to his conservative guns and has a barnstorming campaign...we say don't count this guy out!.....stay tuned!







Democrats To Start Without GOP Input

2007-01-02T20:54:00.868-08:00

*HYPOCRISY AND LIES ALERT*As they prepare to take control of Congress this week and face up to campaign pledges to restore bipartisanship and openness, Democrats are planning to largely sideline Republicans from the first burst of lawmaking.House Democrats intend to pass a raft of popular measures as part of their well-publicized plan for the first 100 hours. They include tightening ethics rules for lawmakers, raising the minimum wage, allowing more research on stem cells and cutting interest rates on student loans.But instead of allowing Republicans to fully participate in deliberations, as promised after the Democratic victory in the Nov. 7 midterm elections, Democrats now say they will use House rules to prevent the opposition from offering alternative measures, assuring speedy passage of the bills and allowing their party to trumpet early victories.Nancy Pelosi, the Californian who will become House speaker, and Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland, who will become majority leader, finalized the strategy over the holiday recess in a flurry of conference calls and meetings with other party leaders. A few Democrats, worried that the party would be criticized for reneging on an important pledge, argued unsuccessfully that they should grant the Republicans greater latitude when the Congress convenes on Thursday.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/01/AR2007010100784_pf.html**BIG BAZOO's take: It didn't take long for the campaign lies of the Democrats to surface in the new congress...it happened on the 1st day of the 1st '1oo hours' of LIB control....Pledging to work with Republicans and set a new tone in DC...Pelosi ribaldly will move on legislation like tax increases and more government regulation without even consulting Republicans.....Democrats...lies, lies, lies yeah!nancy+pelosi 110th+congress democrats republicans harry+reid liberals tax+increases [...]



Edwards: Universal Health Care Trumps Balanced Budget

2006-12-31T18:45:11.098-08:00

**TAX AND SPEND LIB ALERT**WASHINGTON — Democratic presidential contender John Edwards says it is more important to invest in universal health care and lifting people out of poverty than to reduce the budget deficit. The 2004 vice presidential nominee said in an interview broadcast Sunday said "there is a tension" between the two directions, but he has made his choice. "If I were choosing now between which is more important, I think the investments are more important," he said on ABC's "This Week." Edwards' proposal, which includes tax cuts and a million housing vouchers for the poor, may place him at odds with Democrats in charge of the congressional spending committees. The incoming Senate and House Appropriations Committee chairmen, Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia and Rep. David Obey of Wisconsin, have announced a plan to fund most domestic agency accounts at 2006 levels.http://www.foxnews.com/comp/latestNews/0,4855,2,00.htmlBIG BAZOO's take: Get ready to usher in the Uber-liberals for the Democratic nomination for President...Failed Dem.

Another Democrat Forced to Admits Ethics Lapses

2006-12-31T02:08:22.437-08:00

(image) ***CORRUPTION ALERT***

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) has "accepted responsibility" for possibly violating House rules by requiring his official staff to perform campaign-related work, according to a statement quietly released by the House ethics committee late Friday evening.

The top Republican and Democratic members on the ethics panel, Reps. Doc Hastings (R-Wash.) and Howard Berman (D-Calif.), said in a statement that Conyers acknowledged a "lack of clarity" in communicating what was expected of his official staff and that he accepted responsibility for his actions.

"[Conyers] agreed to take a number of additional, significant steps to ensure that his office complies with all rules and standards regarding campaign and
personal work by congressional staff," they stated. "We have concluded that this matter should be resolved through the issuance of this public statement."

The Hill reported last March that two former Conyers’ aides alleged that he repeatedly violated House ethics rules by requiring aides to work on local and state
campaigns, and babysit and chauffeur his children. Deanna Maher, a former deputy chief of staff in the Detroit office, and Sydney Rooks, a former legal counsel in his district office, shared numerous letters, memos, e-mails, handwritten notes and expense reports with The Hill.

**BIG BAZOO's take: This admitted rules breaker is now CHAIRMAN OF THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE!! ..this is the hypocritical pattern of Democrats....claim to be the champion of ethics.....however, once Democrats with ethics lapses are exposed.....sweep these lapses under the rug....and PROMOTE the ethically challenged persons to positions of power!!
John Conyers has the gall to call for impeachment hearings on President Bush....look in the mirror pal!!

Hillary Clinton Quickly Losing Lustre for Democrats

2006-12-30T20:19:57.721-08:00

(image) THE first vote is still more than a year away, but the campaign to replace President George W Bush in the White House is already throwing up surprises.

Unfortunately for Senator Hillary Clinton, long the front-runner in the Democratic drive to retake the presidency, most of them are coming at her expense.



A brace of Christmas opinion polls has left Clinton with a political hangover after a year that had appeared to cement her status as the Democrats’ best-organised, best-financed and best-connected contender for her party’s presidential nomination.

Despite winning re-election to the US Senate by a handsome margin in mid-term voting last month, Clinton has had little to celebrate as polls from the presidential primary battlegrounds signalled early trouble for her historic bid to become America’s first woman president.

In Iowa, the Midwestern state that will once again open the primary season with its caucus votes on January 14, 2008, Clinton slumped to fourth place with only 10% of the vote in a survey of 600 likely Democratic voters.

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2089-2524263,00.html

**BIG BAZOO's take: Santa must have noticed who was naughty...tsk..tsk...Hillary is a dour person and unelectable candidate!!......If her only hope is an 11th hour charm offensive...well... that's an oxymoron of the highest order...Her chickens have come home to roost...we predict a future fore Hillary much like that of Ted 'Chappiquidick' Kennedy....long-term liberal icon...derided by most of the United States as an out-of-touch cretin!!





Islamist Forces in Somali City Vanish

2006-12-28T16:15:43.946-08:00

(image) *RELIGION OF PEACE UPDATE*

NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec. 27 — The Islamist forces who have controlled much of Somalia in recent months suddenly vanished from the streets of the capital, Mogadishu, residents said Wednesday night, just as thousands of rival troops massed 15 miles away.

In the past few days, Ethiopian-backed forces, with tacit approval from the United States, have unleashed tanks, helicopter gunships and jet fighters on the Islamists, decimating their military and paving the way for the internationally recognized transitional government of Somalia to assert control.

Even so, the Islamists, who have been regarded as a regional menace by Ethiopia and the United States, had repeatedly vowed to fight to the death for their religion and their land, making their disappearance that much more unexpected.

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/12/28/world/africa/28somalia.html?th&emc=th

**BIG BAZOO's take: As we have asserted all along....there is no language understood by the fanatical Islamo-Zombies better than brute and iron-fisted force......The sooner the world understands this basic tenet in the War On Terror, the sooner we can wipe out the bad guys!...There is no such thing as an antiseptic war with little collateral damage....trying to fight wars in these way...only leads to the deaths of our valiant, patriot warriors in the US Military....We should treat Sadr City the way the Allies treated Dresden Germany in WW2!!





Former Employees File RICO Racketeering Lawsuit Against Swift & Co.

2006-12-20T22:33:45.164-08:00

(image) *ILLEGAL ALIEN UPDATE*

Eighteen former employees who worked at Swift & Co. have filed a $23 million lawsuit alleging that the meat packing company conspired to manipulate and depress the labor market and wages by hiring illegal immigrants.


Earlier this week federal immigration officers raided six Swift production facilities in six states, arresting nearly 1,300 people in what is believed to be the nation's largest-ever workplace raid on illegal workers.

"These plaintiffs are legal residents and victims in a longstanding scheme by Swift to depress and artificially lower the wages of all its workers by knowingly hiring illegal workers," says Angel Reyes, of Dallas' Heygood, Orr, Reyes & Bartolomei, attorney for the plaintiffs. "By lessening its labor costs and increasing its profits, Swift has severely damaged the potential earnings and livelihood of these hard-working men and women. This litigation seeks to redress those wrongs."

Each of the plaintiffs were employed at the Swift facility in Cactus, Texas, located north of Amarillo. A total of 295 people were arrested on immigration violations or other criminal charges in a raid of the Cactus facility on Tuesday, Dec. 12.

According to the lawsuit, Swift executives "actively sought to locate these illegal immigrants and hire them -- knowing full well that it was in violation of the immigration laws of the United States to do so." The lawsuit also accuses the company of transporting, smuggling, harboring and concealing illegal immigrants.

"When the Swift plant opened in Cactus, wages were approximately $20 an hour," says lead litigation counsel Michael Heygood. "Now, the average wage is approximately $12 to $13 an hour. Illegal immigration has fueled this depression in wages."

http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/061218/dam026.html?.v=74

BIG BAZOO's take: Let's all pray this lawsuit goes ahead successfully....this could fundamentally change the immigration debate nationwide!!.....This suit could result in 'perp walks' of corporate execs that employ illegals and that would send a shiver up the spine of American businesses....that's a good thing!.....cut off the jobs and you cut off the illegals....STAY TUNED!




Iranian Madman Ahmadinejad: Iran Now A Nuclear Power

2006-12-20T22:32:33.456-08:00

(image) *RELIGION OF PEACE UPDATE*

Iran is now a "nuclear power," its President, Mahmoud Ahamdinejad, delcared Wednesday, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency .

During a speech delivered in the Western Iranian province of Javanroud, Ahmadinejad said: " The Islamic Republic of Iran is now a nuclear power, thanks to the hard work of the Iranian people and authorities."

The announcement of Iran as a "nuclear power" is bound to significantly escalate tensions between the West and Iran, and marks a dramatic stage in the Islamic Republic's nuclear campaign.

In recent days, the US military has begun to build up forces around the Gulf, in what is being seen as as a warning to Iran.


http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3342489,00.html#n

Big Bazoo's take: The time for action is NOW!...If Hitler had a nuke what would we have done.....the answer is a real no-brainer...an airstrike on the Iranian nuclear facilities and massive bombings of military infrastructure.....Terror only understands sign language delivered by an iron fist!!....This evil-doer must be dealt with now before a mushroom cloud appears over Tel-Aviv or Al-Queda buys a bomb from Iran and smuggles a dirty bomb into the US via Mexico!! Bye Bye Los Angeles!





Islamic Name Mohammed Overtakes George As Most Popular Boy Name In UK, Wales

2006-12-21T01:28:39.662-08:00

(image) **RELIGION OF PEACE UPDATE**

Mohammed, and its most common alternative spelling Muhammad, are now more popular babies' names in England and Wales than George, reflecting the diverse ethnic mix of the population.

The Office for National Statistics said there were 2,833 baby boys called Mohammed in 2006.

The name is 22nd in the list of most popular boys' names, moving up a place from last year.

Spelled Muhammad, it is the 44th most popular name and enters the top 50 for the first time along with Noah, Oscar, Lucas and Rhys.

There were 2,833 babies called Mohammed born in 2006 and 1,422 called Muhammad. The total exceeds the number of Georges (3,386) or Josephs (3,755).

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2006/12/21/nnames21.xml

**BIG BAZOO's take: If this doesn't set off alarm bells nothing will.....The 5th column of Islam is tearing the social fabric of Europe and this confirms it reach.....Does this bode ill for the West?? You better believe it!.....Unfettered immigration and lack of assimilation by the Islamic community can only lead down the into multi-cultural abyss!! It is time to turn off the immigration spigot and pass laws that demand integration into the host society!!





Jeff Spicoli aka Sean Penn Uses Awards Ceremony For Bush Bashing, Forgets He's Just an Actor!

2006-12-20T23:02:28.162-08:00

*HOLLYWOOD ASS OF THE WEEK*NEW YORK: Sean Penn, the actor and occasional foreign correspondent for the San Francisco Chronicle, hit the media and called for impeachment of the president in receiving the 2006 Christopher Reeve First Amendment Award fromThe Creative Coalition Monday night in New York City.In his remarks, Penn listed more than a dozen serious issues facing the country, and commented, ”We depend largely for information on these issues from media industries, driven by the bottom line to such an extent that the public interest becomes uninteresting.”Turning to his views of President Bush, Penn said, “Now, there's been a lot of talk lately on Capitol Hill about how impeachment should be ‘off the table.’ We're told that it's time to look ahead - not back...“Can you imagine how far that argument would go for the defense at an arraignment on charges of grand larceny, or large-scale distribution of methamphetamines? How about the arranging of a contract killing on a pregnant mother? ‘Indictment should be off the table.’ Or ‘Let's look forward, not backward.’ Or ‘We can't afford another failed defendant.’“Our country has a legal system, not of men and women, but of laws. Why then are we so willing to put inconvenient provisions of the U.S. constitution and federal law ‘off the table?’”In his prepared remarks, he also lamented how the U.S. public was allegedly tricked into backing the Iraq invasion and derided those media figures who did that, describing Rush Limbaugh as “high as a kite on OxyContin,” Bill O'Reilly as “factually impaired,” and Sean Hannity as “simply a whore to the cause of his pimps - Murdoch and Ailes?” He then rapped former Rep. Mark Foley, Sen. Joe Lieberman and even singer Toby Keith. http://www.editorandpublisher.com/eandp/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003523277**BIG BAZOO's take: Sean Penn is a diminutive guy with a severe case of 'little-man syndrome'.....measuring in on his tippy toes at 5'6".....Penn uses every oppurtunity to to reprise his role as 'Stoner Dude' Jeff Spicoli and bash America and it's President......It's our belief that his trip to Iran as a 'reporter' was a cover for a clandestine pickup of fine Middle Eastern Hash from Lebanon and Opium from Afghanistan for his personal use....Dude!

Last week, anti-illegal immigration lighntning rod, Rep.

Officials: Edwards to Enter 2008 Race

2006-12-16T14:11:47.313-08:00

Former Democratic vice presidential nominee John Edwards intends to enter the 2008 race for the White House, two Democratic officials said Saturday. Edwards, who represented North Carolina in the Senate for six years, plans to make the campaign announcement late this month from the New Orleans neighborhood hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina last year and slow to recover from the storm. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they did not want to pre-empt Edwards' announcement. As Edwards enters the crowded field, the Lower Ninth Ward provides a stark backdrop to highlight his signature issue _ that economic inequality means that the country is divided into "two Americas." Edwards also plans to travel from New Orleans through the four early presidential nominating states _ Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire and South Carolina _ as part of an announcement tour between Christmas and New Year's Day.http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/12/16/D8M240Q00.htmlBIG BAZOO's take: The Breck Girl, aka John Edwards, is the latest punch line in the joke known the latest Democratic '08 Presidential nominee....all a voter need do is re-watch the debate between Cheney and Edwards last election cycle....Cheney laid bare Edwards lack of gravitas...this guy is a class-warfare, tax-and-spend lib, ambulance-chaser.....and a rube!

FBI: Radical Islamic Cleric's Impending Death in Prison May Spark Terror Attacks

2006-12-14T22:57:40.348-08:00

******RELIGION OF PEACE UPDATE****** The health of terrorist cleric Omar Abdel-Rahman, known as the Blind Sheik, is deteriorating - renewing fears that his death in prison could trigger an attack on the United States, officials said Thursday. There is no credible indication that an attack on the U.S. is imminent, said several law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the situation. In a two-page bulletin, dated Dec. 8, the FBI reported to federal intelligence officials that Abdel-Rahman had been rushed from prison to a Missouri hospital two days earlier for a blood transfusion. There, doctors discovered a tumor on his liver, according to the bulletin, which was described to The Associated Press by a law enforcement official. Officials said the bulletin served merely as a reminder that Abdel-Rahman had called for retaliation by terror sympathizers if he died in prison. It cited a May 1998 news conference in which al-Qaida members distributed his last will and testament, in which Abdel-Rahman pleaded for followers to "extract the most violent revenge" should he die in U.S. custody. The FBI did not have immediate comment on Thursday. In a video in September marking the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, al-Qaida's No. 2 man, Ayman al-Zawahri, cited the continuing imprisonment of the sheik. "I call on every Muslim to make use of every opportunity afforded him to take revenge on America for its imprisonment of Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman," he said. http://www.lasvegassun.com/sunbin/stories/bw-exec/2006/dec/14/121409422.html**BIG BAZOO's take: More peaceful postcards from the 'Religion of Peace'.....notice in the story the Sheik was given a blood transfusion in prison...no doubt the blood of an American...or maybe a JEW!!!!!

Barack-Gate? Land Deal Beginning to Raise Eyebrows About Up and Coming Democrat from Illinois

2006-12-14T22:02:22.630-08:00

(image) ******CORRUPTION ALERT******
It begins in 2004 with Obama's $1.9 million book advance for The Audacity of Hope. In June 2005, Obama used the money to purchase a $1.65 million Georgian revival home on Chicago's South Side—$300,000 less than the asking price. On the very same day, Rezko, a Democratic Party fund-raiser and developer, bought the adjacent empty lot at the asking price from the same owner (the house and the lot were previously owned by the same person). Rezko, who had raised money for Obama and known him since the senator attended Harvard Law School, did not develop the empty lot. In January 2006, he sold a 1,500-square-foot slice of it to Obama for $104,000, a fair sum in that market.

Here's the question: Did Rezko orchestrate his same-day purchase of the lot at full price so that the seller would give Obama a break on the price of the adjacent house? Was Obama in on the deal? And did Rezko never intend to develop the lot, giving Obama a nice roomy side yard, a favor which he'd call in later?

Obama says he did talk to Rezko before the purchase, but only because a person who had renovated it for a previous owner had once worked with Rezko, who owns other properties in the South Side. He didn't arrange the joint purchase with him. He bought the house at such a good price, Obama has told the papers, because it was being unloaded in a "fire sale."

Renegade Democratic Senator Bill Nelson Meets With State Terror Head Assad of Syria

2006-12-13T23:24:52.892-08:00

(image) WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush sharply criticized Syria on Wednesday despite calls for him to engage with the country over Iraq, while a Democratic senator defied administration wishes and met Syria's president.

Bush, who has resisted pressure to hold talks with Syria, as well as Iran, as part of a new approach to ending violence in Iraq, issued a statement calling on Syria to "immediately free all political prisoners."

The White House said members of Congress should not be going to Syria.

"I think it is a real stretch to think that the Syrians don't know where we stand or what we think. We have made it clear and we will continue to make it clear," White House spokesman Tony Snow said.

"What has not happened is the appropriate response by the Syrians in terms of their adventurism within the region, especially with regard to Lebanon, their continued support and housing of terrorist organizations," Snow said.

Another Democratic senator announced he too was heading for Syria for a meeting with Assad next week. Connecticut's Chris Dodd said in a statement he originally planned to make the trip in April but at that time heeded a senior administration official's warnings not to go.

BIG BAZOO's take: Bill Nelson is a traitor and disgrace...he should be arrested and thrown in a dungeon!.....This is a preview of how the Democrats will prosecute the war on terror....appeasement...appeasement.....appeasement!!...What a far cry from Ronald Reagan's maxim: 'We don't negotiate with terrorists!'.....Terrorist lick their chops when presented with weakness....this is a classic case!





Balance Of Power in US Senate Hangs on Health of Democrat from South Dakota

2006-12-13T22:11:03.600-08:00

(image) WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson of South Dakota suffered a possible stroke Wednesday and was taken to a hospital, his office said.

If he should be unable to continue to serve, it could halt the scheduled Democratic takeover of the Senate. Democrats won a 51-49 majority in the November election. South Dakota's governor, who would appoint any temporary replacement, is a Republican.

"Senator Tim Johnson was taken to George Washington University Hospital this afternoon suffering from a possible stroke," read a statement from his Senate office. "At this stage, he is undergoing a comprehensive evaluation by the stroke team."

Johnson had become disoriented during a call with reporters, stuttering in response to a question. He appeared to recover, asking if there were any additional questions and then signing off.

If the two-term senator, 59, is unable to serve when the 110th Congress convenes Jan. 4, South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds would appoint a replacement.

Muslim Pilgrims Urged to File Civil Rights Lawsuits Against Airlines

2006-12-13T21:43:34.056-08:00

American Muslims making a religious pilgrimage to Mecca are being encouraged to file civil rights complaints if they feel discriminated against by airlines. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), citing what it called the "airport profiling" of six imams removed from a recent flight, yesterday said Muslims traveling this month to the holy site in Saudi Arabia need to be aware of their rights. "Given the increase in the number of complaints CAIR has received alleging airport profiling of American Muslims, we believe it is important that all those taking part in this year's hajj be aware of their legal and civil rights," said Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR spokesman.

2006-12-12T21:15:30.521-08:00

(image) Federal agents targeting illegal immigrants raided meatpacking plants in six states yesterday, arresting hundreds of workers on the uncommon charge of identity theft and shutting down the world's second-largest meat processing company for much of the day.

About 1,000 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents with search warrants entered plants owned by Swift & Co., of Greeley, Colo., charging that "large numbers" of workers illegally assumed the identities of U.S. citizens or legal residents by using their Social Security numbers to get work, ICE officials said.

Company and union officials said agents, some dressed in riot gear, locked down six beef and pork processing plants early in the morning, segregating workers into groups of citizens and non-citizens after questioning. Some illegal workers were bused to detention facilities hours away, labor officials said.

ICE officials would not say how many people were arrested pending a news conference today in Washington. About 90 percent of Swift's 15,000 U.S. employees work in three shifts at the plants, company officials said.

The crackdown was another step in the federal government's stepped-up campaign against illegal immigration, and like some recent raids it targeted job sites, the magnet drawing many of the nearly 12 million undocumented immigrants. But the move was unusual for several reasons.

**BIG BAZOO's take: F-I-N-A-L-L-Y....enforcement of US immigration laws.....what a concept!!....Let's hope that these raids are just the tip of the iceberg....these illegals are stealing the IDs of real Americans to get jobs they are not entitled to!..Send 'em back to Mexico..NOW!





U.S. Condemns Iran's Holocaust Denier Conference

2006-12-12T19:38:21.697-08:00

(image) WASHINGTON -- The Bush administration condemned Iran on Tuesday for convening a conference of people who deny the Holocaust happened, calling the move "an affront to the entire civilized world."

The two-day event in Tehran was initiated by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The hard-line president has described the Holocaust as a "myth" and called for Israel to be wiped off the map.

"The gathering of Holocaust deniers in Tehran is an affront to the entire civilized world, as well as to the traditional Iranian values of tolerance and mutual respect," White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said. "The United States will continue to support those in Iran and elsewhere who seek to promote human rights and dignity, and will stand with them in their efforts to overcome oppression, injustice and tyranny."

BIG BAZOO's take: What a menagerie of hateful, evil L-O-S-E-R-S attending this conference....the hatred of Jews seems to be imprinted in the DNA of many people.....Instead of using the success of Jewish culture, in the face of overwhelming hate, as an example....haters want to resort to conspiracy theories and bigoted stereotypes....hey world W-A-K-E- U-P!!....Hitler is smiling...we better act!






Leftist Rep. Dennis Kucinich Says He Plans to Run for President in 2008

2006-12-12T20:07:52.220-08:00

(image) CLEVELAND — Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich, who unsuccessfully ran for president in 2004, said Monday he is planning to run again because his party is not pushing hard enough to end the war in Iraq.

In a statement, Kucinich said he plans to formally announce his candidacy for 2008 on Tuesday at City Hall, where he served as mayor of his hometown in the 1970s.

The liberal, anti-war congressman said he was inspired to run because he disagrees with the way some of his fellow Democrats are handling the war in Iraq, including approval of a proposal to spend $160 billion (euro121 billion) more on the conflict.

"Democrats were swept into power on Nov. 7 because of widespread voter discontent with the war in Iraq," said the Ohio lawmaker. "Instead of heeding those concerns and responding with a strong and immediate change in polices and direction, the Democratic congressional leadership seems inclined to continue funding the perpetuation of the war."

**BIG BAZOO's take: This leftist, peacnik radical is just another warmed over 60s hangover!!.....The last thing this country needs is are reminder of failed socialist/communist regimes..that reminder would be the seditious Dennis Kucinich!!...He is the Jane Fonda of today!...Oh ..and by the way the 1st act as President would be to form a cabinet level position called: Dept. of Peace!!..and then cut funding to the military...great timing!




Corrupt UN Secretary General Annan Criticizes White House in Farewell Speech

*CORRUPT GASBAG HYPOCRITE ALERT*

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) - U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan took his criticism of the Bush administration to the nation's heartland Monday, saying America must not sacrifice its democratic ideals while waging war against terrorism.

In the hometown of President Harry Truman, who helped found the United Nations, Annan said "human rights and the rule of law are vital to global security and prosperity."

When the U.S. "appears to abandon its own ideals and objectives, its friends abroad are naturally troubled and confused," Annan told a packed audience at the Truman Presidential Museum and Library.

Annan also said the U.N. Security Council should be expanded to better reflect today's world.

Annan, an increasingly vocal critic of the war in Iraq, leaves the United Nations on Dec. 31 after 10 years as secretary-general. He chose the Truman museum for his final major speech in part because it is dedicated to a president who was instrumental in the organization's founding.

**BIG BAZOO's take: Kofi Annan is as corrupt and anti-Semitic as they come these days.....his own son made hundreds of 1000s of $$ in the Oil for Food scandal with Iraq....personally enriching himself on the back of war.....never too shy to bash America or duck making any real decisions...this Secretary General will be remembered for sitting on his hands during the Rwanda genocide and the Islamic slaughter in Dar fur!!......Bubba is angling for this job down the road...We say.....dismantle the US United Nations Building and relocate it in Europe...and cut US funding...P-E-R-I-O-D!!...good riddance Kofi!






Let People Defend Themselves, Second Amendment Group Says

2006-12-11T16:11:57.277-08:00

(image) (CNSNews.com) - The Illinois State Rifle Association says it will draft legislation allowing law-abiding citizens to carry firearms for their own defense.

The concealed carry legislation -- a response to Friday's deadly shooting in a downtown Chicago law office -- will be introduced in both chambers of the Illinois General Assembly early next year, ISRA said.

"One has to wonder how the outcome may have differed had any of the law office staff been trained and licensed to carry a defensive firearm," said ISRA Executive Director, Richard Pearson.

"Unfortunately, the answer to that question will remain unknown as Illinois is one of only 2 states in the nation that prohibit law abiding citizens from carrying firearms as a means of self defense."

Pearson said the people in the law office at least would have had a "fighting chance to survive," if any of them had been carrying guns themselves on Friday when an armed man with a grudge burst into the office.

**BIG BAZOO's take: The evidence is overwhelming that gun prevent crimes and save lives almost 3,000,000 times a year....Concealed carry permits would go a long way in protecting citizens from today's threats!.....We would not want to be unarmed when confronted with evil.......the Constitution demands it!






Incoming Democratic House Intelligence Chief Botches Simple Quiz on Al-Queda: Incompotent?

2006-12-11T08:47:57.693-08:00

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Rep. Silvestre Reyes of Texas, who incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tapped to head the Intelligence Committee when the Democrats take over in January, failed a quiz of basic questions about al Qaeda and Hezbollah, two of the key terrorist organizations the intelligence community has focused on since the September 11, 2001 attacks.When asked by CQ National Security Editor Jeff Stein whether al Qaeda is one or the other of the two major branches of Islam -- Sunni or Shiite -- Reyes answered "they are probably both," then ventured "Predominantly -- probably Shiite."That is wrong. Al Qaeda was founded by Osama bin Laden as a Sunni organization and views Shiites as heretics.Reyes could also not answer questions put by Stein about Hezbollah, a Shiite group on the U.S. list of terrorist organizations that is based in Southern Lebanon.Stein's column about Reyes' answers was published on CQ's Web site Friday evening.In an interview with CNN, Stein said he was "amazed" by Reyes' lack of what he considers basic information about two of the major terrorists organizations."If you're the baseball commissioner and you don't know the difference between the Yankees and the Red Sox, you don't know baseball," Stein said. "You're not going to have the respect of the people you work with."http://www.cnn.com/POLITICS/blogs/politicalticker/2006/12/incoming-house-intelligence-chief.html**BIG BAZOO's take: Silvestre Reyes is an incompetent and corrupt Congressman......an inexcusable and possibly deadly combination during our war on terror!! This version Democratic Party is rife with corruption, hypocrisy, and ineptitude.....It is breathtaking to watch the mega-media sit on their hands and be silent!!......It is no wonder that Al-Queda and their quislings are rooting for the Democrats to win!! ...Throw these bums out in '08!!What a D-O-U-C-H-E-B-A-G!!silvestre+reyes corruption intel+chief democrats hypocrisy osama+bin+laden[...]
