The USS Cole was attacked in the Yemeni Port of Aden, on October 12, 2000. 17 sailors died and 39 more were injured in the suicide attack. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack and Jamal al-Badawi was detained just days later. His confession to recruiting the other bombers led to several arrests including Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri. Since then al-Badawi has escaped from Yemeni prisons twice along with others convicted for the Cole bombing. He last surrendered to Yemeni authorities as part of an agreement with al-Qaeda militants, although he was released in return for a pledge not to engage in any violent or al-Qaeda related activity. Ten years later none of the defendants convicted in Yemen of the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole remain in prison.

Recently I’ve been hearing this phrase a lot; the world is upside down. People are slowly catching on to the fact that things are un-like how they used to be. Political polarization mixed with outlandish irrationalities and head-shaking ignorance is becoming common place. But unfortunately many of these stories, which defy sound logic or objectivity, simply fall through the cracks of our 24/7 news cycle. In an attempt to document the patently outrageous, I have decided to start an ongoing series called, The United States of Absurdity. We will be documenting stories that we hope only represent the fringe of a fringe with sources and very short commentary. And as our upside down world slowly renders The Onion obsolete, at least they won’t be able to say that we’re all crazy. Let’s begin.
How bored are “Human Rights” groups in America? (more…)

In wake of the recent Israeli/Gaza debacle one common theme is emerging; the world really hates Jews. You would think such a profound lack of moral clarity would be highly alarming to the rational masses. But these days, brainwashed Muslims, uninterested Americans, and welfare loving Europeans have immediately trounced on the unjust opportunity to bash, discredit and rant against the only bastion of freedom in an un-free world. Israel.
The facts of this story are very simple. But like the Arizona Illegal Immigration debate, getting the facts to the users has proven too much to handle for our media, the UN, and Jew hating Muslims worldwide. Let me give you the background on recent events occurring in the middle-eastern area called the Gaza Strip. (more…)

With a little help from today’s news, Bill O’reilly and his recurring guest Bernard Goldberg have finally convinced me. I now agree with them that the media is not just biased in opinion, but is corrupt in their tactics and means they will use to push their agenda. If you’ve ever questioned the leanings and power of a “covertly” slanted media, look no further than the past week and a half. The hubbub over the Arizona Illegal Immigration law points to a trend that should frighten even the leftist of left-wingers. I believe the media, working in possible collusion with open-borders proponents and morally confused liberals have engaged in a campaign to blatantly distort, discredit and outright lie about the new Arizona law.
Last Friday, Rep. Trent Franks, a Republican from Arizona, said this about abortion.
far more of the African American community is being devastated by the policies of today than were being devastated by the policies of slavery.
