Dear Roscoe:

What’s the difference between a Pelosi Democrat and a bucket of cold kimche?

--L. Libby

Dear L.:

That’s easy. The bucket.

Now, why did you have to go and get me started? I mean, I’ve been choking it back multiple times a day, every time I see a seditious Dhimmicrat clown like Dick al-Durbin bashing Bush and the Iraq war for naked political exploitation—and to hell with the national security consequences, let alone the morale of our men on the front lines.

Or like John F. Kerry, claiming he was dropping out of the presidential sweepstakes to devote more time to working against the war. Can you count how many levels that’s wrong on? I’m afraid I can’t count that high.

Now, are you happy? Please don’t ever write here again. My therapist doesn’t like it.


BTW, you wouldn’t know it from the mainstream mediocracy, but there’s a lot of folks who don’t think the Iraqi insurgents are that tough. In fact, there are some very good reasons to believe the new Bush strategy has a fairly good chance of working.

Writing in foreignpolicy.com, Naval War College Professor Donald Stoker says the Bush administration’s worst mistake in Iraq has been the managing of public opinion back home. The “surge” itself, he says, may just work, if we don’t wimp out. Here’s the top of it:

Vietnam taught many Americans the wrong lesson: that determined guerrilla fighters are invincible. But history shows that insurgents rarely win, and Iraq should be no different. Now that it finally has a winning strategy, the Bush administration is in a race against time to beat the insurgency before the public’s patience finally wears out.

The cold, hard truth about the Bush administration’s strategy of “surging” additional U.S. forces into Iraq is that it could work. Insurgencies are rarely as strong or successful as the public has come to believe. Iraq’s various insurgent groups have succeeded in creating a lot of chaos. But they’re likely not strong enough to succeed in the long term. Sending more American troops into Iraq with the aim of pacifying Baghdad could provide a foundation for their ultimate defeat, but only if the United States does not repeat its previous mistakes.

It wouldn’t be the first time George W. Bush surprised his misunderestimating opponents. Considering how deeply the Dhimmicrats are invested in our failure in Iraq, I’d like to see victory just to ruin their day.

ROSCOE’S Mid-Weak Review

A cancer on the ex-presidency

The Carter anti-Israel, pro-eggsucking-Palestinian scandal continues to spread its stain over the Jimmuh. Leave it to Carter. He’s such a doofus, he’s likely to go down in history as the first U.S. president whose ex-presidency was more corrupt than his presidency. What should we call a presidential scandal involving the corrupting influence of Arab money? Camelgate? Carterrorism?

Your turn. We’re open to suggestion…

Doggone Frenchman

What a weenie. John Kerry won’t run. That is so disappointing. Really. We are so looking forward to the most crowded field possible of Dhimmicrats stabbing each other’s backs, despoiling each other’s images, etc. Now it’s been reduced by one. Wouldn’t you have paid to see the Frenchman and the Breck Girl and the Hillary clawing at each other’s eyes in the primaries? All that Blood & Gore, so to speak.

I understand Kerry got a little weepy announcing his non-candidacy. As well he should. Now he’ll have to spend most of his evenings with Therese. [Insert shrieking banshee sound file.] Ted Kennedy lauded Kerry as a hero for putting the party ahead of his personal interests. Yeah, right. Like it didn’t have anything to do with his single-digit ratings in the polls. Or like it didn’t have anything to do with candidates for other offices asking Kerry not to campaign for them. The truth is he would have stunk the place up, and he knew it.

Oh, well. We’ll have to settle for Obama spitting in Hillary’s soup. BTW, did you notice how Obama upstaged Hillary by sitting in front of her at the State of the Union? Maybe it was just a coincidence. Yeah, that must have been it.

Red blues

Unfortunately, it appears the Republicans could actually be even more conflicted than the Dhimms. Take, for example, the fact that there’s far less of a gap between the GOP frontrunners Rudy Giuliani and John McCain than there is between the Dhimms’ frontrunners, Hillary and Obama. (Click on the graphic for an actually readable version.) Lookie here. That means there could be some real knife fights on this side, too.

Well, that’s show biz…

Hillary Clinton has announced her candidacy for president of the United States.

Ahem. I said Hillary is running for president.

Hey, you. . .

Insert chirping-cricket sound file.

Oh, you already knew that? Or, as Hillary told Chris Matthews, “Is there anyone in the f-----g country who didn’t know I was running for president? I’ve been running for president since I was five! Are you f-----g retarded?”

OK, maybe that wasn’t the real Hillary. Or the real Mouthhews. It was a devastating must-see skit on Saturday Night Live. Our good friend Noel Sheppard over at NewsBusters brings it to our attention with this delightful post, which includes a link to the entire skit.

Like we said, it's not to be missed.

Friday, January 19, 2007


Dear Roscoe:

Well, what do you say now, smart guy? The first 100 hours of the new Democratic leadership have been completed with lots of accomplishments, and the sky hasn’t fallen in. In fact, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are getting high marks for their accomplishments. Now, aren’t you ashamed of yourself?

--R. Emanuel

Dear R.:

You mean Nancy & Sluggo? (Dingy Harry’s a former boxer, you know.) You apparently missed the slow one these Dhimmicrats have been trying to pull on the public with restrictions on grassroots lobbying in the Senate and an attempt in the House to resurrect the old Fairness Doctrine in broadcasting.

Make no mistake, the so-called first 100 hours represent no less than an attempt to show who’s boss and intimidate and silence the rest of us. Check this out:

Senate Heeds Grassroots Pressure

Now the battle over congressional accountability moves to Nancy Pelosi’s chamber.
Republican senators and a few Democrats voted Thursday night to reject an attempt to silence grassroots groups.

The Senate adopted an amendment offered by Sen. Robert Bennett, R-Utah, to strip Section 220 -- the so-called "grassroots-lobbying provision" -- from S.1, an ethics-reform bill.

"This is a clear victory for the Constitution, the First Amendment and grassroots organizations who want their voices to be heard by Congress," Bennett said.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he was pleased with the vote outcome.

"I am an advocate for reforming the way business is done in Washington, but I believe that we should do so without silencing the voices of ordinary citizens," he said.

Read the rest here.
Next stop: The same ploy in the House, plus the Fairness Doctrine—otherwise known as the “Hush Rush” bill for the way it would shut down political talk radio.

Better get used to the new massas...

These are the days of Elijah

Words and Music by Robin Mark

These are the days of Elijah
Declaring the Word of the Lord

And these are the days of your servant Moses
Righteousness being restored

And though these are days of great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword

Still we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord!

Behold He comes! Riding on the clouds!
Shining like the sun! At the trumpet call
Lift your voice! It's the year of Jubilee!
And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

And these are the days of Ezekiel
The dry bones becoming as flesh

And these are the days of your servant David
Rebuilding a temple of praise

And these are the days of the harvest
The fields are as white in the world

And we are the labourers in your vineyard
Declaring the word of the Lord!

Behold He comes! Riding on the clouds!
Shining like the sun! At the trumpet call
Lift your voice! It's the year of Jubilee!
And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

There's no God like Jehovah!

There's no God like Jehovah!

There's no God like Jehovah!

There's no God like Jehovah!
(Repeat 3 times)

Behold He comes! Riding on the clouds!
Shining like the sun! At the trumpet call
Lift your voice! It's the year of Jubilee!
And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

Behold He comes! Riding on the clouds!
Shining like the sun! At the trumpet call
Lift your voice! It's the year of Jubilee!
And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!
Listen to it here and here. (Two different versions.)

Shut up & suffer

We don't usually recycle things that are being e-mailed all around tarnation, but this is too good:

The Democrats now promise
"A New Direction For America"


The stock market is at a new all-time high and America's 401Ks are back.
A new direction from there means, what?

Unemployment is at 25-year lows.
A new direction from there means, what?

Oil prices are plummeting.
A new direction from there means, what?

Taxes are at 20-year lows.
A new direction from there means, what?

Federal tax revenues are at all-time highs.
A new direction from there means, what?

The Federal deficit is down almost 50%, just as predicted over last year.
A new direction from there means, what?

Home valuations are up 200% over the past 3.5 years.
A new direction from there means, what?

Inflation is in check, hovering at 20-year lows.
A new direction from there means, what?

Not a single terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11/01.
A new direction from there means, what?

Osama bin Laden is living under a rock in a dark cave, having not surfaced in years, if he's alive at all, while 95% of Al Qaeda's top dogs are either dead or in custody, cooperating with US Intel. A new direction from there means, what?

Several major terrorist attacks already thwarted by US and British Intel, including the recent planned attack involving 10 Jumbo Jets being exploded in mid-air over major US cities in order to celebrate the anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks.
A new direction from there means, what?

Just as President Bush foretold on a number of occasions, Iraq was to be made "ground zero" for the war on terrorism -- and just as President Bush said they would, terrorist cells from all over the region are arriving from the shadows of their hiding places and flooding into Iraq in order to get their faces blown off by US Marines rather than boarding planes and heading to the United States to wage war on us here.
A new direction from there means, what?

Now let me see, do I have this right? I can expect:

The economy to go South
Illegals to go North
Taxes to go Up
Employment to go Down
Terrorism to come In
Tax breaks to go Out
Social Security to go away
Health Care to go the same way gas prices have gone

But what the heck!

I can gain comfort by knowing that Nancy P, Hillary C, John K, Edward K, Howard D, Harry R and Obama have worked hard to create a comprehensive National Security Plan, Health Care Plan, Immigration Reform Plan, Gay Rights Plan, Same Sex Marriage Plan, Abortion On Demand Plan, Tolerance of Everyone and Everything Plan, How to Return all Troops to the U.S. in The Next Six Months Plan, A Get Tough Plan, adapted from the French Plan by the same name and a How Everyone Can Become as Wealthy as We Are Plan. I forgot the No More Katrina Storm Plan.

Now I know why I feel good after the elections.
I am going to be able to sleep so much better at nights knowing these dedicated politicians are thinking of me and my welfare.

Please pass this good news along to all of your friends so they can feel better also.

Dear Roscoe:

How’s Al Mohler doing? Your last post had him at death’s door, and he’s one of my favorite Protestants. We’ve been saying some special prayers for the boy.

--J. Ratzinger

Dear J.:

Glad you asked. He’s much improved. In fact, he’s been released from the hospital, which is a really good thing. (Those places are full of sick people.) But then, we know (from personal experience) that he’s going to have to be doctoring for quite a while to stay out of trouble with those pulmonary clots.

Sure glad we didn’t lose him. He’s a rock star in the culture war. More details at CitizenLink.


Dear Roscoe:

We know you’re an extremely modest chap, and Daley is an Irish name. But we keep hearing rumors about royal blood in your lineage. Any truth to that?

--C. Windsor

Dear C.:

Well, we’ve been found out. (Probably should never have posted that little clue about being a Royal Pain in the TTBS Ecosystem.)

Truth be told, we are: Earl Roscoe the Unlikely of Kesslington under Ox. And we really are about as unlikely as they come.

If you’re curious about your possible royal roots, you can check out this Web site.

Hat Tip to the Grouchie Old Yorkie Lady.

ROSCOE’S Weak-End Report

Ta-da! The burqini

Ever wonder what Muslim women do about those pesky tan lines? Don’t. Not if you want to keep your head attached to your body.

Actually, ye olde burqa obviates all that, rendering the whole body a zone where the sun don’t shine. In fact, there have been reports of health concerns about Muslim women getting pale, wan, fat and weak through lack of exercise, all because of their restrictive clothing.

But now a fashion designer has come along with a solution—the burqini, a modest swimming garment that exposes only the hands and face. Hat tip to Little Green Footballs.

Makes us wonder, though: With this kind of wild & crazy behavior, can wet burqa contests be far behind?

Big fish

OK, so maybe the U.S. didn’t get embassy bomber Fazel Abdullah Mohammed last week in its strikes in Somalia, as previously reported here. But did you hear about the raid in Iraq that meanwhile netted some big fish Iranians? That reportedly includes a major bottom feeder, Hassan Abbasi. This could be big.

Here’s part of the report from Regime Change Iran (which we’re visiting daily, right?):

In 2005 Iranian journalist Amir Taheri, reported that "to Iran's new ruling elite, Abbasi is the big strategic brain." "More and more officials quote him in meetings with foreign diplomats."

According to Taheri, Abbasi is the architect of the so-called "war preparation plan" currently under way in Iran.

"The Western man today has no stomach for a fight," Abbasi says. "This phenomenon is not new: All empires produce this type of man, the self-centered, materialist, and risk-averse man." Abbasi believes that the US intervention in Iraq, which involved "slightly higher risks" than the invasion of Afghanistan, was the very last of its kind.

Sounds like the boy was actually on to something. Perfect description of Dhimmicrats.

Carter's little scandal

And then you probably heard that 14 members resigned from an advisory board to the Carter center in protest of Jimmy Carter’s pro-Arab, anti-Israel book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid. We can’t help but wonder why these dots aren’t being connected, but there’s a very good reason for Carter’s anti-Israel cant: Money. We’ve reported here previously how Jimmuh is on the take from the Islamists. Simple as that.

His center is a major recipient of funding from Saudi Prince Al-Walid bin Talal. That’s the same prince who offered millions of dollars to New York City after 9/11 with the recommendation that America rethink its foreign policy vis a vis Israel. Rudy told him where to stick it, but Jimmuh apparently has no such compunctions. Al-Walid is also the same one we wrote about who’s helped fund the work of the major academic apologist for radical Islam, John Esposito.

In case you missed it, here’s another storyabout Carter’s Saudi connections. And one more.

ROSCOE’S Mid-Weak Review

See how they spin

After your—ahem—daily visit to Regime Change Iran, you might want to check out NewsBusters for the story behind the Bush Iraq strategy story—the mainstream mediocracy’s shameless spin to Hide the Truth from America. How do we know this? Does the sun rise in the east? That’s how sure we are. (And in case you didn’t know, NewsBusters is undoubtedly the best place to get the antidote to all the toxins that the mainstream mediocracy spews upon us each day.)

In fact, the drumbeat already began long before Bush even went on the air to address the nation. Did you see Time magazine’s cover this week? “The Surge: Does sending more soldiers to Iraq make any sense?” That little gem was written, of course, at least a week ago.

Speaking of usual suspects, al-Reuters has already done the predictable and declared “Bush defies public opinion, Democrats on Iraq troops.” The story—we will not link to this egregious piece of French—dwells heavily on a supposed split in Republican ranks—giggle, giggle—going out of its way (and the mainstream) to quote senators like Norm Coleman and Sam Brownback. Not what you’d call exactly representative of Republicanism on this issue. But, hey, what did you expect? Fair and balanced? (LOL.)


Another thing the mainstream mediocracy won’t be expending a lot of ink or kilobytes on: That surprise American strike in Somalia this week brought justice to a seriously bad dude: Fazel Abdullah Mohammed, the mastermind of the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania that killed more than 200 people. The collapse of the Islamist regime there with the help of the Ethiopians allowed the opportunity to bring this maggot to justice. Eternally.

Remember in the early George Bush years how the mainstream mediocracy constantly underestimated this president’s intelligence and gravitas, to their own detriment? It continues. All of which adds up to the fact that we’re also probably doing one heck of a lot better in the war on terror than you’d gather from the dinosaur media. Fazel Abdullah Mohammed is a case in point. And that’s good news.

And finally

Keith Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress, elected in November, has been named to the House Judiciary Committee. The Associated Press reports:

In a prepared statement Wednesday, Ellison, D-Minn., called the selection an honor and privilege.

"I look forward to pursuing a progressive agenda in the committee, including the restoration of American citizen's civil liberties that have come under increasing attack over the past six years," said Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress.

Ellison, a freshman lawmaker, said this week he'd like to see a ban on racial profiling, an issue that could come up in the Judiciary Committee.

And, oh by the way, the new Democrat chairman of that committee? John Conyers, D-Mich., whom Investors Business Daily calls “in the pocket of Islamists.” Conyers is probably the highest-profile supporter of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal and has sponsored legislation, unsuccessfully thus far, to make public criticism of Islam a crime.

Rumors of war

But you will begin to hear of wars and rumors of wars. . . Matt. 24:6.

Did you hear that the Israelis are now denying the Sunday Times report that they are planning a tactical nuke strike on Iran's nuclear facilities? Sort of, anyway. The way these statements are couched, they seem more like "non-denial denials."

Meanwhile, the U.S. government is tight-lipped about some kind of military action today in Somalia. Various reports say individuals responsible for the 1998 embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania were targeted. More intriguingly, some reports allude to a "senior al-Qaeda" figure. Read more here.

Roscoe has felt for a long time that with as months and years as Osama bin Laden has eluded capture, he could be just about anywhere. The idea that he's still holed up somewhere on the Afghan-Pakistan border seems a little hard to swallow.

Suppose he could have returned to Somalia? Or maybe someone like Ayman al-Zawahiri. The other piece of the puzzle is that this strike was called 48 hours before President Bush announces a new phase in the war on terror.

But then, maybe we're just the suspicious type. . .

Bad moon rising

Take a good look at this Iranian installation called Natanz. It’s one of the evil regime’s nuclear production facilities, and it’s targeted for destruction. At least, that’s the report from the Sunday Times of London.

Revealed: Israel plans nuclear strike on Iran

ISRAEL has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iran’s uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons. Two Israeli air force squadrons are training to blow up an Iranian facility using low-yield nuclear “bunker-busters”, according to several Israeli military sources.

The attack would be the first with nuclear weapons since 1945, when the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Israeli weapons would each have a force equivalent to one-fifteenth of the Hiroshima bomb. Under the plans, conventional laser-guided bombs would open “tunnels” into the targets. “Mini-nukes” would then immediately be fired into a plant at Natanz, exploding deep underground to reduce the risk of radioactive fallout.

Read the rest here. After all the threats Mojo Ahmadinejad has cast at Israel, most of the protests will be no more than pro forma. Everybody knows why this has to be done. Unfortunately, the use of tactical nukes will be highly divisive, and the Muslim world will be screaming for blood. It could start the Big One.

Roscoe’s recommendation for 2007 is to make
Regime Change Iran a daily read. Seriously. Latest post there reports U.S. movement of major additional forces toward the Persian Gulf.

Getting somewhat less attention these days in the mainstream mediocracy—in the shadow of the new Dhimmicrat Congress—is a major military shakeup under way by the Commander in Chief. These reportedly are commanders who are committed to military victory in the Middle East, sniveling Dhimmicats be damned. This post from Ralph Peters will help you understand why, for example, Bush would appoint an admiral, William Fallon, to replace Gen. Abizaid in charge of Central Command. In short, it’s only a matter of time before we’re going to be at war with Iran.

And then this post in which Kenneth Timmerman forecasts the conflict within three to six months. Yes, scary. But better now than with a fully nuclearized Iran father down the road.

ROSCOE'S Weak-End Review


From our friend Yaakov at the Dry Bones Blog.

And from our friend William Warren...

Meanwhile, please pray

For Al Mohler, one of the really good guys in the culture war. He's president of the Southern Seminary of the Southern Baptists (Louisville), a blogger and one of the best-informed people we know. We quoted him recently on the subject of how the Catholic church is compromised on Islam. He knows his stuff. He's also in very serious conditon from abdominal surgery and pulmonary emboli, which is potentially life-threatening. (Roscoe is still on medication to avert this condition.)

We cannot afford to lose this good man. Check his blog for medical updates--and just one heck of a lot of good stuff.

Thursday, January 04, 2007


Dear Roscoe:

What the heck's going on in Congress? I heard something on the news about a pierogi taking over the House and being sworn in with a crayon. It was supposed to be a first of some kind, which one could only hope. Can you explain?

--D. Hastert

Dear D.:

Clean out your ears. There were two firsts, and you got them jumbled.

The first first was Nancy Pelosi, the first woman Speaker of the House. That’s not to be confused with a pierogi, which is defined as a Polish semicircular dumpling with any of various fillings, such as finely chopped meat or vegetables, often sautéed after boiling. On the other hand, there could be a parallel here. From what we hear, she’s definitely full of something.

The second first was Keith Ellison, the first Muslim congressman, being sworn in on a Quran or Koran—not a crayon. We sure hope you’re not an Islamophobe or something. We might have to report you to our imam, you dhimmi. Better get with the new program, D.

2007: Year of the Antichrist?

Did you know that Iranian Shiites believe Jesus is returning soon? That’s right—except they believe he’ll be returning as a footman for their Messiah, the Mahdi, who sounds ominously like the Beast of Revelation. We’ve devoted more than a few posts to this alarming development.

Now our friend Joel Rosenberg—who for our money has the best handle around on these things—is reporting that the Iranian loony toons are expecting their Mahdi to arrive as early as this spring and to conquer Arabia, Syria and Iraq, destroy Israel and then set up a global government. Joel warns not to fall into the trap of believing that these people can be reasoned and negotiated with. “Nothing could be further from the truth,” he writes in his latest posting:

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his cadre of loyal mullahs are not being driven by the same goals and aspirations as are the diplomats in Washington, Brussels or at the United Nations. The President of Iran and his team fervently believe the Islamic Messiah is coming back soon, possibly as soon as this Spring. They are convinced that their divine mission is to create the conditions for the Mahdi's return. As a result, they are committed to instigating more anti--American violence in Iraq, not less. They are determined to obtain nuclear weapons at all costs, not negotiate away their atomic research and development program. What's more, they are deeply committed to building political and military alliances with anti-Western powers, not finding accommodation with the West.

Bottom line: the leaders of Iran are preparing for an apocalyptic war with the U.S. and Israel. It's not a question of "if" but "when." The sooner the White House and our new Congressional leaders realize this and take decisive action to stop this nuclear nightmare, the better.

Read the rest here.

Meanwhile, we’re starting to dig into what we believe may be the most significant book for 2007, Joel’s Epicenter: Why the current rumblings in the Middle East will change your future. Book report eventually to follow.
