Insight into Ward Churchill
HUMAN EVENTS ONLINE :: Ethnic Drag Queens: Red-Faced in Red Face by Mac Johnson
"Who knows better what a man desires to see in a woman, than a female impersonator?"

Now, before I start getting an unwanted sort of fan mail, let me say that I am paraphrasing a comment I recall being attributed to the late Japanese playwright Yukio Mishima, a fascinating figure who spoke from experience on this topic. Mishima's point, of course, was that insight into one's fantasies is most likely to be found in someone who is a lot like you, and who thus may entertain similar fantasies (even if they play a decidedly different role in them).

This observation explains not only Mishima's distant relationship with his wife, (and the lyrics of the Kink's song Lola), but also the career of Ward Churchill.

As you probably already know, Ward Churchill is a tenured poseur at the University of Colorado. A professor of ethnic grievance and Native American studies, Mr. Churchill claimed to be an American Indian, a combat veteran, an artist creating original Native American paintings, an author of scholarly writings on Indian grievances, and a militaristic self-appointed leader of "his" people.

In reality, Ward Churchill is a delusional white boy from Urbana, Ill., who never saw combat, created his "art" by scanning and colorizing other people's photographs and sketches, is accused of plagiarizing some of his scholarly writings, and has made a life's work out of denying, defaming and defrauding his actual people.
Ward Churchill was selling what guilty white people wanted to buy; no wonder he went undetected for so long. The truth is that it would be quite exceptional for a real Indian to play this role so well; only someone as white as Ward would know how to play to the guilty white liberal's self-flagellatory fantasy so perfectly. Needless to say, read the whole thing.

Official Mexican Guide To Illegaly Cross Border Into US, Revamped DVD Edition
AZ Central:
MERIDA, Mexico - Officials in a Mexican state have published their own 87-page handbook for potential migrants to the United States, adding fuel to an international debate over whether such guides encourage illegal border-crossers.

The Guide for the Yucatecan Migrant, published by the southeastern state of Yucatán, comes with an accompanying DVD in Spanish and Mayan. It tells migrants how to apply for U.S. work visas but also gives detailed safety advice for crossing illegally, including where to find water in the desert and how to avoid the most dangerous areas. The guide includes a section specifically about Arizona.

Yucatán says it is the first Mexican state to publish such a guide, and U.S. immigration-control advocates worry it will be copied by other states. They already are angry over a similar 32-page book published by the Mexican Foreign Ministry in December.
Yucatán helping migrants go north: Guide, DVD show Mexicans how to cross border, send cash home.

'Go to hell fire!'
A general election event organised by the Muslim Council of Britain was stormed by members of an Islamic group
"We are here to condemn you for apostasy!" shouted the lead figure with a self-possessed, absolute certainty. "Those Muslims who vote are Kafir [unbelievers]. Vote today and become Kafir tomorrow!"

Mild-mannered Sher Khan, the MCB's chair of public affairs, tried to speak up, to no avail. The demonstrators screamed: "You are the mouthpiece of the British government! You are Kafir - go to hell fire!"

The election document handed out to the media before the launch talked of 10 key concerns for British Muslims - poverty, education, Iraq, terrorism, discrimination and so on. This was replaced by a tirade denouncing the policy of western governments on everything from Chechnya to Abu Ghraib.

On the stairwell, a demonstrator slapped a leaflet on to the forehead of Mr Sacranie. His colleague followed that up with an open-handed and aggressive shove in the MCB chief's face. The blow forced Mr Sacranie's head onto the wall as he absorbed the blow.

Mr Sacranie tried his best to make light of the incident. It was democracy in action, he mused, a good example of some of the anger felt among younger generations.

"In every community you have these fringe elements. It does not reflect the Muslim community.

"I asked these people one question: Is it part of Islam to behave in such a way? They did not answer."

Sadly for the MCB, the invasion should perhaps not have been entirely unexpected. Some of those behind it have turned up at previous high-profile Muslim gatherings and prompted chaos.

The leaflets given to journalists were in the name of "The Saviour Sect", but many senior Muslims said they were the same faces they had seen at stunts organised by Al Muhajiroun, a fringe group (whose members say has disbanded) best known for praising the 9/11 hijackers.

In any case, both organisations oppose participation in British political life.


If they oppose participation why are they then participating? Disrupting a political meeting is a political act and certainly not a democratic one. Mr Sacranie should quit being so apologetic for his correligionists and call their behaviour for what it is. Eric the Unread did.

Iranian Journalist & Blogger Arrested, Tortured, Scheduled For Court
According to Mr. Mori, a group of Iranian journalists sent an open letter to international organizations about the serious concerns over an Iranian journalist and blogger "Mohammad Reza Fathi" from a very small town called "Saveh" near Tehran who was arrested and tortured by the authorities because he criticized the governor and mayor of the town in his blog for mismanagement and problems.
Few days ago we put the report about the arrest and torture of " Mohammad Reza Fathi " the writer of the local "Saveh" publication who is also a blog writer ( www.savehjam.blogspot.com) , By doing so we thought to reduce the pressure on him.

Although he was temporarily released , but according to the latest report received from "Saveh" , The 1st session to review his file will begin on Monday April 29 at 10 am in Saveh's judiciary centre.

The plaintiffs of the file are Alireza Ashenagar ( governor of Saveh) together with Mehdi Rustaie Grailu ( Mayor of Saveh ) and apparently Hassan Tardast the prosecutor of Saveh will look into the file .

Mohammad Reza Fathi has written an article in his website criticized the action of the governor and mayor and blamed them for mismanagement and causing problems for the public in Saveh.

On March 26/ 2005 he was interrogated by the " Edareh Amaken" [a part of the police] in Saveh which was reported by many sites , this weblog writer also wrote a letter to president Khatami, which was no replied .

On April 4 /2005 this journalist again was arrested by the police with the order of ministry of justice and was brought to a temporary detention .

The Saveh's police went in to his house and looked at all the belonging of him , his children and his wife's and confiscated some of his belonging for more investigation.

...He then wrote a note in his blog for the last time and wrote : Based on the reason that in this country criticising and protest is very expensive for the writer , he will break his pen and will put away the " writing " for ever.

These reporters requested from international organizations not to become silent with regard to the regimes suppression.

Killing Leaven
I thought Pesach cleaning was just a meaner version of Greek spring cleaning but Michael, at Kosher Eucharist, set me straight:
I tried not to think about it. I tried to put it off. But I can’t anymore. It’s time. Time for the dreaded…PESACH CLEANING.

Perhaps you are a gentile. If so, you are probably unfamiliar with the attitude that every microscopic crumb of leavened food is your mortal enemy, hiding in the dark and remote corners of your house ready to steal your children to pass through the fire to the god of chametz. You probably have never considered whether or not your shampoo might contain leaven, thus rendering you unfit in the eyes of the Lord. You have probably never vacuumed your books while not under the influence of amphetamines.
Go drop a cookie crumb or two on his blog, just to make his life difficult ;-)

We'll know who it is very soon.

Update by evariste: it's Cardinal Ratzinger, my favorite stiffnecked conservative! AKA "The Grand Inquisitor", "putting the smackdown on heresy since 1981" :-)

An Opinion From Iraq
I believe it was lady redhawk who first posted about Any Soldier. My husband and I wanted to make a connection with someone in Iraq and this turned out to be the perfect site to do so.

In October we met Jason, a wonderful young man from Ft. Bragg, N.C. with the 27th Engineer Battalion supporting the 10th Mountain Division. He has been in Iraq since last August and hopes to come home in July. Before he went to Iraq, his company was in Honduras on a humanitarian aid mission to build a school and hospital.

Jason has a business degree and was working in his chosen field when 9/11 happened. He gave up a comfortable and secure life to join the Army and has never looked back.

His job in Iraq? He is part of taskforce IED search team. That’s Improvised Explosive Device. This picture was taken recently while he was on guard duty. It was about 95 degrees that day.

Jason is a hero to us and we hope to meet him someday. He re-enlisted in January, by the way. We couldn’t be more proud of these brave service men and women. Please keep them in your prayers.

He recently sent the following email and gave us permission to share it with all of you.
Hello everyone,

I thought maybe you all might enjoy this. This guy is over here somewhere with me fighting the war on terror. He is a senior at Ohio, and although just a part time soldier (National Guard--"Nasty Girl")  I was pretty impressed with how he handled himself when he saw that a group of protestors at his school had a "die in" to protest the war in Iraq. This is his reply to their antics - the letter was posted in the school newspaper so everyone could read it:


Soldiers face real 'die-in' daily in Iraq

Letter to the Editor

It's a shame that I'm here in Iraq with the Marines right now and not back at Ohio University completing my senior year and joining in blissful ignorance with the enlightened, war-seasoned protesters who participated in the recent "die-in" at College Gate. It would appear that all the action is back home, but why don't we make sure? That's right, this is an open invitation for you to cut your hair, take a shower, get in shape and come on over! If Michael Moore can shave and lose enough weight to fit into a pair of camouflage utilities, then he can come too!

Make sure you all say your goodbyes to your loved ones though, because you won't be seeing them for at least the next nine months. You need to get here quick because I don't want you to miss a thing. You missed last month's discovery of a basement full of suicide vests from the former regime (I'm sure Saddam's henchmen just wore them because they were trendy though). You weren't here for the opening of a brand new school we built either. You might also notice women exercising their new freedom of walking to the market unaccompanied by their husbands.

There is a man here, we just call him al-Zarqawi, but we think he'd be delighted to sit down and give you some advice on how you can further disrespect the victims of Sept. 11 and the 1,600 of America's bravest who have laid down their lives for a safer world. Of course he'll still call you "infidel" but since you already agree that there is no real evil in the
world, I see no reason for you to be afraid. Besides, didn't you say that radical Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance?

I'm warning you though -it's not going to be all fun and games over here. You might have bad dreams for the next several nights after you zip up the body bag over a friend's disfigured face. I know you think that nothing, even a world free of terror for one's children, is worth dying for, but bear with me here. We're going to live in conditions you've never dreamt about. You should get here soon though, because the temperatures are going to be over 130 degrees very soon and we will be carrying full combat loads (we're still going to work though). When it's all over, I promise you can go back to your coffee houses and preach about social justice and peace while you continue to live outside of reality.

If you decide to decline my offer, then at least you should sleep well tonight knowing that men wearing black facemasks and carrying AK-47s yelling "Allahu Akbar" over here are proud of you and are forever indebted to you for advancing their cause of terror. While you ponder this, I'll get back to the real "die-in" over here. I don't mind.

The Nine Commentaries
There's a forum going on in DC today and Jack Wheeler will be there. It's about a little something called "The Nine Commentaries" that's rocking the Communist party of China. U.S. Newswire : Releases : "'Nine Commentaries' and the Future of China:..."
WHAT: A Forum on "Nine Commentaries" and the Future of China, Mass Resignations from the Communist Party

WHEN: Tuesday, April 19, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

WHERE: National Press Club, White Room, 529 14th St., NW, Washington, D.C.

WHO: The Epoch Times

On Nov. 19 The Epoch Times multi-language newspaper published an editorial series called the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, a series of articles that have shocked the Chinese government and had a profound impact on China's future. For the first time in China's history, its people had access to a comprehensive review of the history of communism and how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) resorts to any method to maintain its survival and perpetuity. Through various channels, the "Nine Commentaries" is being widely disseminated in China. As a direct result, more than 800,000 people have renounced their membership in the CCP and other Communist organizations, with more resigning daily. These articles have sent shock waves through Chinese communities around the world, even leading commentators to speculate about the possible collapse and disintegration of the Chinese Communist Party.

The Chinese Communist Party has manifested its fears about these trends in its recent actions. On Tuesday, scholars, journalists, and veteran China-watchers will gather to discuss the CCP, its recent response to the mass resignations, and the future of China.

Invited Speakers/Panelists:

-- Ambassador Mark Palmer, vice chairman of the board of Freedom House, former U.S. Ambassador to Hungary.

-- Dr. Stephen D. Bryen, commissioner of the U.S.–China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC); president of Finmeccanica, Inc.; deputy under secretary of defense, 1981 to 1988.

-- Dr. Jack Wheeler, founder and editor-in-chief of To The Point, founder and president of the Freedom Research Foundation.

-- Richard Fisher, vice president of International Assessment and Strategy Center.

Host/Moderator: Dr. Gary Feuerberg, editor, The Epoch Times, English edition

Sponsor: The Epoch Times, http://www.theepochtimes.com (English)
800,000 renounced memberships? Wow! Those nine commentaries must really be something; I wish I lived in DC and could go see this. Anyway, if you'd like to read them, here are Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party at the Epoch Times. I can't wait to read 'em myself.
