Recently I read a book that said that the Soviet Union (and all its tyrannies) only lasted as long as it did because of the women of Russia. I found this a surprising (and odd) statement so I dug a little deeper and began to understand what the author meant. He was speaking to the socialist mentality of cradle-to-the-grave policies that Russia (and other socialist countries) endorsed. So too is the incredibly wealthy state of Washington being run into the ground by the two women senators and female governor that run this incredibly productive state, creating a despicable huge debt for its citizens. Five years ago when she first came into office as governor, Christine Gregoire inherited a budget surplus which she quickly squandered, running Washington into a foolish $5 billion dollar debt. Stupidly, local citizens re-elected this idiot woman (and endorsing her policies) last year, even though she had completely and utterly failed in her financial duties as the leader of one of the most wealthy states in the West. Washington's vast agricultural base, immense electricity production, and HQ for some of the worlds top companies (Boeing, Microsoft, and Starbucks) didn't prevent Gregoire from running this state into the ground economically. In addition, because of huge social spending in the state the budget next year for Washington is expected to be $9 billion in the red! With this record, Gregoire should be removed for incompetence for her bungling efforts to "fix the budget". She has refused to cut spending, even though most of the social spending is being paid to illegal aliens that have flooded the state, conquering dozens of towns in central and southern towns where white American citizens have to dye their hair or are physically attacked for having blonde hair!!! The two federal senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray have also inexpertly failed to meet the needs of the state and both have been grossly unskilled in alleviating the critical budget crisis facing Washintonians. All three women apparently cannot face the difficult decision of taking money that they have given to "the poor" away from them, even if it ruins the entire state. The sad fact is that the vast majority of overspending has been done to encourage illegal aliens to vote Democratic since they are the Democrats are the ones who give away the free money (this is called vote buying). Instead of simple (and easy) budget cutting to save the state from bankruptcy, these three women have done nothing but wail and wring their hands. Real men would have slashed the overspending by the state government, but women are too afraid of being "mean", one reason I am sure the Founding Fathers didn't want women to be able to vote in the first place, haha.....
'Peace partner': We chopped up Jewish boy
Takes credit for ax murder, while Israeli media blames 'unknown assailant'
By Aaron Klein
A top leader of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah organization called WND today to claim responsibility for the ax murder of a 13-year-old Jewish boy yesterday. Much of the Israeli media, however, is claiming the attack was perpetrated by an unknown assailant.
The terrorist leader of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Fatah's declared "military wing," said the attack was carried out to avenge the Feb. 12, 2007, assassination of Hezbollah arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh. He said the attack was carried out by members of what he called the Imad Mughniyeh Brigades, which he said is composed of Fatah Al Aqsa Brigades gunmen.
The Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades later released an official pamphlet taking credit for the attack and also put out a statement to that affect on the group's website.
The 13 year old was killed, and another boy, age 7, was moderately hurt when a Palestinian attacker entered the Jewish community of Beit Ayin in the southern West Bank between Jerusalem and the biblical city of Hebron. The community is particularly easy to infiltrate since its inhabitants refused to build a security fence, explaining such protection would be a sign of weakness. The Palestinian terrorist used an ax to attack the two boys.
The ax murderer was thought to have fled the scene of the attack. Israeli security sources said there is good information on the exact identity of the killer and that the Israel Defense Forces was searching for him.
Asked by WND for comment, Abbas' office refused to condemn the attack.
Much of the Israeli media, meanwhile, is claiming an unknown assailant carried out the attack. Such claims were run in Israel's Haaretz and Maariv newspapers and by Channel 2 News. The exception was Yediot Aharonot, Israel's leading daily, whose military correspondent, Alex Fishman, reported Fatah was behind the attack.
U.S. and Israeli policy considers Fatah to be moderate. President Obama supports talks to create a Fatah-led Palestinian state.
Ex-sailor sentenced to 10 years in terror case
By JOHN CHRISTOFFERSEN
Associated Press Writer
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A former Navy sailor convicted of leaking details about ship movements and the best ways to attack them was sentenced Friday to the maximum 10 years in prison. U.S. District Judge Mark Kravitz said Hassan Abu-Jihaad, of Phoenix, betrayed his country and endangered his fellow sailors.
"I cannot really overstate the seriousness of this crime," Kravitz said. The leak "does constitute a fundamental betrayal of your country and of your oath. You endangered your colleagues, you endangered your vessel and other vessels and other sailors, and you endangered your country."
Abu-Jihaad was convicted last year of disclosing classified national defense information. Prosecutors labeled him a traitor who was trying to help foreign terrorists replicate the bombing of the USS Cole, which killed 17 American sailors.
Prosecutor William Nardani encouraged Kravitz to consider Abu-Jihaad's actions, not his demeanor in court. He said the former sailor praised the Cole bombing as an operation carried out by martyrs.
"That is a twisted view of the world," Nardani said. Kravitz said Abu-Jihaad's sentence should be a deterrent for anyone who supports terrorism.
"We happen to be engaged in a very different struggle right now," Kravitz said. "It's really a struggle about the fundamentals of freedom. That struggle will go on for quite some time and we need to ensure the people that are part of that struggle on our end uphold the oath and protect classified information from getting into the hands of those who stand opposed to those concepts of freedom."
Abu-Jihaad was also convicted on a charge of providing material support to terrorists, but Kravitz overturned the conviction last month, citing the language of the law.
