Museum Shooter Apparently White Supremacist, Anti Semitic

Networks are now reporting that the suspect in the Holocaust Museum shooting is 89-year-old James von Brunn. Let me tell you, there’s a treasure trove of information for Brunn on the internet.

First of all, he’s entirely convinced that Jews control the media and America’s money source. In the same article, he denies that Hitler ever gassed the Jews and says that the dictator’s biggest mistake was not doing so.

Second, here’s a profile matching his description on Wikipedia. Brunn claims he attempted to arrest the “Federal Resrve (sic) Board of Governors” for treason. He writes that he was tried and convicted in a “kangaroo” court in Washington, was sentenced to federal prison, and that his conviction was “confirmed by a racially motivated Appeals Court”. He served 6.5 years in prison. From his page:

Von Brunn champions Western Culture,and the practice of Eugenics. He states that Marxism-Multiculturalism-Judaism is the Enemy of Mankind.citing Talmudic quotes to “Kill the Best Gentiles !”

Third, here’s his personal website. A sample of his writings on that page:

Here are 350pp of FACTS condensing libraries of information about the Talmud, Democracy, Marx, Genetics, Money, Aryans, Negroes, Khazars, The Holy Bible, Treason, Mass-media, Mendelism, Race, the “Holocaust” and a host of suppressed “bigoted” subjects, all supported by quotations from many of history’s greatest personages. Learn who is responsible for the millions of Aryan crosses covering the world’s battlefields. Why our sons and daughters died bravely but in vain. Learn why the “browning of America will alter everything in society from politics and education to industry, values and culture.” (TIME 4-9-90).

This carefully documented treatise exposes the JEWS and explains what you must do to protect your White family. Kill the Best Gentiles! Is a must for every concerned parent and a manual for every student of World History.

Finally, there’s this. Brunn appears to be as anti-neoconservative as he is antisemitic. Fox is reporting that Brunn had an exchange with novelist Tom Clancy a few years ago, in which Brunn called Colin Powell a certain derogatory term. Clancy reportedly responded by a term of his own to describe Brunn.

Update: Brunn was arrested in 1981 after he walked into the Federal Reserve building with a satchell containing a bomb and carrying a shotgun, angry over interest rates and what he viewed as the Jews controlling the money supply. He was arrested and sentenced to 6.5 years in prison.

Senate Democrats Kill John Doe Measure, Too

Well, it’s official. Both houses of Congress can’t get enough damn nerve together to protect citizens who report suspicious activity. Hesitation, in fear of consequences, by citizens can prove disastrous. Audrey Hudson of the Washington Times reports:

The Senate just rejected an amendment that would have added the “John Doe” protection provision to an education bill. The vote was 57 for and 39 against, but the vote involved a Senate procedural rule that required a three-fifths majority for approval.

Michelle also has the roll. All Republicans, along with 7 Democrats, voted for the measure. All “Nays” were from donkeys. Brownback, Feinstein, Johnson, and Obama weren’t voting. Michelle writes:

Bottom line: The Dems believe that if you see something, you should just shut up.

This fight is not over. There still is a final conference report to be hashed out. Keep your phones lit. The Senate Dems need to hear from you.

Interesting to note: Hillary voted for the measure. All other major Democrats (Reid, Kennedy, Kerry, Leahy, Biden, Boxer, Dodd, and company) voted against protecting Americans.

Bizarre: UN to Appoint Ambassador to Aliens

If aliens ever land on Earth, Mazlan Othman will be the first person to officially hold talks with them. Or at least she’ll be the first United Nations official to do so. That’s because the global body has decided to appoint the obscure Malaysian physicist to the post of ambassador to aliens.

Mazlan Othman, the head of the UN’s little-known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), is to describe her potential new role next week at a scientific conference at the Royal Society’s Kavli conference centre in Buckinghamshire.

She is scheduled to tell delegates that the recent discovery of hundreds of planets around other stars has made the detection of extraterrestrial life more likely than ever before – and that means the UN must be ready to coordinate humanity’s response to any “first contact”.

During a talk Othman gave recently to fellow scientists, she said: “The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that some day humankind will receive signals from extraterrestrials.

“When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject. The UN is a ready-made mechanism for such coordination.”

A couple of things.

First of all, we’re assuming the extraterrestrial life would be capable of communicating with mankind. That is a major assumption considering we’re not even sure extraterrestrials would be anything more than microbes.

But let’s assume they are more intelligent and developed than simple microbes. Let’s assume they’re capable of walking and fly in space ships. What makes the UN think these individuals will come in peace and be willing to sit down for tea?

If they can land here, and assuming they don’t carry some disease that immediately wipes out the human race, why would they sit down with inferior life forms? After all, they’re the ones capable of reaching other planets with life — not us.

It’s quite presumptuous to think they just can’t wait to talk with us when they could enslave us all and take over the planet. Not everything in the universe takes diplomacy to the level of pansy-ass, UN.

I’m ending this post now. Because we’ve officially reached the point of absurdity.

Libyan Justice Minister Al-Jleil says Gaddafi ordered Lockerbie bombing

LONDON (BNO NEWS) — Libyan Justice Minister Mustafa Mohamed Abud Al Jeleil on Wednesday told a Swedish newspaper that Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi ordered the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, which killed 270 people.

Al-Jleil told Stockholm-based newspaper Expressen that Gaddafi was the person who gave the order to bomb Pan Am Flight 103, a daily scheduled transatlantic flight from London Heathrow Airport to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

“I have evidence that Gaddafi ordered the Lockerbie bombing,” Al-Jleil was cited as saying by Expressen. “To hide this, he did everything in his power to get Megrahi back from Scotland.”

Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was convicted of being behind the Lockerbie bombing, but was released in 2009 on compassionate grounds and returned to Libya.

Kathleen Parker Throws Fit, Walks Off Set?

What happened, she ran out of Sarah Palin stories to talk about? Seriously, can’t you picture this drama queen walking off the set in a huff? She’s an attention whore and she’s clearly upstaged by Elliot Spitzer, who really runs the show.

Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker actually stormed off the set of the “Parker Spitzer” show during a pre-taping a few weeks ago — furious that her co-host is continually allowed to take charge of their nightly CNN chat-fest, the insiders said.

Although still fuming, Parker did return to wrap up the segment, they said.

But she’s angry that the show’s producers are allegedly doing nothing to play up her strengths on the ailing show, the sources said.

What “strengths” would those be? I’ve seen the show. She can’t even manage what little she does now. She’s boring. She’s annoying. You end up wondering why she’s there to begin with. I’m not Spitzer fan but he’s far better at his job than she is at hers. The show is just bad. And she’s the worst of two bad hosts on a bad show.

Jane’s Editor: Yeah, That Was A Missile

Despite the new common wisdom about jet contrails, an editor for Jane’s Defence Weekly says that missile-like objected spotted off the coast of California was definitely a missile.

But Doug Richardson, the editor of Jane’s Missiles and Rockets, examined the video for the Times of London and said he was left with little doubt.

“It’s a solid propellant missile,” he told the Times. “You can tell from the efflux [smoke].”

Richardson said it could have been a ballistic missile launched from a submarine or an interceptor, the defensive anti-missile weapon used by Navy surface ships.

For its part, the military says the object wasn’t a missile but, contrary to speculation elsewhere, isn’t ready to conclude that it was just a jet’s contrail. So…what else could it be? Well, it may have been a private missile. Although the FAA, which issues licenses for commercial launches, says no launch was scheduled for that day.

I honestly don’t have a clue what this was. You have the military denying it was a missile but then they would do that if it was supposed to be a secret launch, right? Then you have some people say it’s a jet’s contrail. And then you have an editor for Jane‘s saying it was definitely a missile.

Here’s what I do know: More than 24 hours after this thing was spotted, there’s no definitive explanation. And that’s a little worrisome.

Biden: FDR Got on TV in 1929 And Explained Why the Market Crashed

A nice catch by a reader of Michelle Malkin’s. During his interview with Katie Couric on CBS News, Joe Biden (AKA Gaffemaster) had this to say:

“When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed. He said, ‘look, here’s what happened.’”

Where to start. First of all, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected 1932 — the market crashed in 1929. Second of all, Philo Farnsworth created the first working television in 1928. Again, the market crashed in 1929. FDR got on a device nobody had at a time when he wasn’t president? Joe, get a history book. Good Lord.

Update: Another commenter says that FDR was on television when he gave his inaugural address in 1933. Oy. From Wikipedia:

Commercially available since the late 1930s, the television set has become a common communications receiver in homes, businesses and institutions, particularly as a source of entertainment and news.

Emphasis mine. The first televised inaugural address? President Harry Truman’s in 1949.

Update (10/2): I’ve closed the comment section. The spin got just downright pathetic. Folks, even Jon Stewart took the time to make fun of Biden for the comment. Biden was wrong. FDR didn’t get on TV in 1929 to explain the stock market crisis. He wasn’t president and almost no one had a TV. It was a gaffe. Move the hell on.

Huckabee: Let’s Close Gitmo Because the World Doesn’t Like It

MIKE HUCKABEE: I’ve been to Guantanamo, I was there, I guess it’s been about a year and a half ago. I think the problem with Guantanamo is not in that its facilities are inadequate. It’s the symbol that it represents. It’s clearly become a symbol to the rest of the world as a place that has become problematic for us as a nation. I was quite frankly impressed with the quality of the facilities and even the attention to care that was given to the detainees, but that aside, it doesn’t alter that Guantanamo to the rest of the world is a symbol that is not in our best interests to continue pursuing.

Never mind the fact it’s been a valuable source of information. No, he thinks it’s a bad symbol, so it should now be closed.

After the Iowa poll showed that Republican voters like him but found him much less “presidential” and “electable” than Romney, Huckabee sought to build his foreign policy credentials, meeting with a group of retired generals who are in Des Moines to urge the 2008 candidates to commit to opposing torture. After the meeting, Huckabee joined Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in declaring his opposition to the interrogation procedure known as “waterboarding,” and said he would support closing the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, a contrast with the other leading Republicans.

Bryan:

That paragraph suggests that you’re easily swayed by a single meeting on important issues that have been before the American people for years…

My take: He’s putting symbolism over substance and putting worldwide condemnation ahead of the security realities. Those are not good qualities in a commander in chief who’ll lead a country that was globally envied and reviled long before the war even started.

Paul Mirengoff:

I suspect that Huckabee required little lobbying. Waterboarding and long-term detention aren’t very “Christian”; they merely keep terrorists out of action and, in special circumstances enable us to find out where we’re going to be attacked next and/or where we can find those who are planning the next attacks. But if Huckabee actually did reach his position based on the views of a handful of generals, and without consulting the people actually charged with protecting this country from terrorists, then he’s even less qualified to be president than I suspect.

With any luck, this will be the end of Huck’s presidential chances.

TNR: We Can’t Stand by Beauchamp’s Stories

I’m getting emails left and right about this. TNR, publisher of Scott Thomas Beauchamp’s fabrications, standing by him for months, says they can no longer stand by them.

In retrospect, we never should have put Beauchamp in this situation. He was a young soldier in a war zone, an untried writer without journalistic training. We published his accounts of sensitive events while granting him the shield of anonymity–which, in the wrong hands, can become license to exaggerate, if not fabricate.

When I last spoke with Beauchamp in early November, he continued to stand by his stories. Unfortunately, the standards of this magazine require more than that. And, in light of the evidence available to us, after months of intensive re-reporting, we cannot be confident that the events in his pieces occurred in exactly the manner that he described them. Without that essential confidence, we cannot stand by these stories.

This is actually only a taste, with the full report being 14 pages and around 10,000 words. All of the fodder to say: He’s full of crap.

Interesting note by Allah. The date for this report is December 10, with the only way to access it being a direct url.

More: Bryan (or AP?) points to this on page 10:

But we also found some reason to doubt Beauchamp’s reliability: In 2006, he had written a personal blog, Sir Real Scott Thomas, which we only discovered after the controversy erupted. He appeared an angst-ridden young man prone to paroxysms: “I shoot, move, communicate, and kill … the deaths that I inflict secure the riches of the empire.” With his excited prose and tendency toward overstatement, his blog did not inspire journalistic confidence. We had good reasons never to assign Beauchamp another piece.

More at Michelle’s and Bob Owens’.

I’ll probably have more in a bit.

Black Panthers Intimidating Voters in PA Updated: Video Added, Black Panther Party Talked About It; Video?

Two Black Panthers have been blocking the entrance to a precinct with a night stick in an attempt to stop people from voting, witnesses tell Fox News. The one Black Panther is actually still there, but police were dispatched to the scene.

Motive? Witnesses say that the men were telling them that the era of white supremacy is over and that a black man would be president. If I get any more information I’ll update.

Update: I’m hearing that the one Panther is also a poll watcher.

Update: Alright. Thanks to reader “D” and The Corner, here’s video of the Fox News report:

I’ll update as more information becomes available.

Update: Via Michelle Malkin, the New Black Panther Party had promised to send out members to ensure its interests.

Minister Najee Muhammad, national field marshal for the New Black Panther Party, and Uhuru Shakur, local chairman of the Atlanta chapter of the party, took turns reading statements from Dr. Malik Shabazz, leader of Black Lawyers for Justice and attorney for the party (yes, that Malik Shabazz)…

…”We will not allow some racists and other angry whites, who are upset over an impending Barack Obama presidential victory, to intimidate blacks at the polls,” Muhammad said. “Most certainly, we cannot allow these racist forces to slaughter our babies or commit other acts of violence against the black population, nor our black president.”

Muhammad added, “We must organize to counter and neutralize these threats using all means at our disposal. This is a great time for our people, and we must ensure that peace prevails for our people.”

Shakur said the New Black Panther Party does not hate white people, but it does not like racist white people who try to harm the black community…

…Shakur added, “We warn you, leave Barack Obama alone and leave our babies alone because black people are a spiritual people and a people who are trying to do right, and we will not hesitate to take up our legal rights of self-defense.”

Shakur said the New Black Panther Party believes the plot that was foiled in Crockett County was not an isolated incident and that the party will do what it can to protect members of the black community on Election Day.

“We will be at the polls in the cities and counties in many states to ensure that the enemy does not sabotage the black vote, which was won through the blood of the martyrs of our people,” he said.

As members of the New Black Panther Party said “Black Power,” Andrew Chirwa, an Alamo resident and native of Malawi in Southern Africa, urged everyone at the press conference to shout “Black Power” together.

More info as I get it.

Update: Is this the actual video of the Panthers wielding a billy club/night stick? The guy on the right-hand side appears to be the same guy appearing in the Fox News report.
