Wanna-Be Venezuelan Spies in New Mexico

From the KOBTV4 video below:
The Venezuelan government was not involved. An FBI agent posed as Venezuelan official Luis Ramirez. Argentine born Pedro Mascheroni and his wife Marjorie Roxby Mascheroni approached the agent with a proposal for a nuclear Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) device to kill power in Manhattan, New York.


NPR reports that Pedro Mascheroni was disgruntled about the Department of Energy decision not to fund his pet project in the 1980's and lost his clearance over 20 years ago.


Other reports mention his pet project was a laser-fusion project and he was laid off during a 1980's reduction of force by the agency. He continued to be disgruntled to the point of calling the Department of Energy his enemy and having that in common with Hugo Chavez, leader of Venezuela.


Both reports say that documents related to the case were unsealed on September 17, 2010. SmokingGun.Com has not posted them yet.


Pedro was still in jail at the time of the reports. Marjorie was released by a judge and is under heavy surveillance.



The Albuquerque Journal covers some additional details:

And Mascheroni had other plans for Hugo Chavez's government, court documents say. He suggested an explosion over New York that could produce an "electromagnetic pulse" to knock out the metropolis' electrical power and a laser that could blind satellites; in Venezuela, a secret underground reactor for enriching uranium below an open, above-ground nuclear power plant, along with an underground facility for undetectable tests of "micro-bombs"; and making Venezuela Latin America's defense "umbrella" able to retaliate against attacks with nuclear bombs.

In a departure from the other stories, they say the FBI agent used the name "Luis Jimenez".

The 2010 Republican Primaries. Where to Start?

Sadly, she is not the brains of this operation.
Might as well start with Arizona. Those people are stupid for renominating McCain. If you want a Democrat, just get one with a D behind their name.

Now, for the crazy. Charles Krauthammer, in what I hope is a temporary fit of Washington Post nativeism, goes after the Delaware Republican Senate nominee, O'Donnell during an evening visit to FOX news:
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: I'd vote Republican but, you see, I think what Laura is missing the point that what's at stake here is control of the Senate. This is not an ordinary year. This is not an ordinary Democratic administration. This is a Democratic administration with a very ambitious social Democratic agenda. They want to change America. They've had 18 months. They have passed, for example, Obamacare, which will change America structurally and in a way that will not be reversible. Now they have ambitions to do the same with energy, with education, with taxation. They're going to appoint Supreme Court justices.

The paramount objective of any Republican and conservative today is to gain control of one or other of the Houses and stop it, and that's why what's important is winning seats. I think it's a huge mistake to jeopardize a seat in Delaware which was absolutely in the pocket without almost any contention and to jeopardize it with a much weaker candidate, who may or may not win, and I think is overwhelmingly likely to lose.
No, Chuckie, the objective is to get back a conservative government. Nominating and electing a pantywaist whiner does not gain that, especially when there is no real difference between him and the Democrat bearded Marxist running to represent Delaware in the US Senate. (The funny thing about that Politico article is that they picked the same Republican nominee that Krauthammer preferred, as if he already was the nominee in May.)  If you want to join in with the country club establishment Republicans you are doing it at the wrong time. Either take a pill and get sane or listen to Michael Steel and shut up.

Hey, stupid, she's hot.
In one day O'Donnell raised one million dollars for her campaign and closed the polling gap with her Marxist opponent to around 10%.

Mouthpieces of the other parties, keep talking the way you are, all you can do at this point is help. Where 'libertarian leaning' Reason's Moynihan got the idea that O'Donnell was a long shot, who knows. She earned 53% of the Republican vote. Oh yea, she was a "long shot" at Washington, DC cocktail parties. He also thinks she is insane, for reasons like expressing personal choice in masturbation habits, refraining from them herself when she was in her 20s. His article is an interesting blend of Democrat and National Republican Senatorial Committee talking points. She filed a lawsuit against a former employer for violating policy by not allowing her time off for a Masters program, which Reason equates with falsely claiming to have a Master's degree.  Perhaps Reason sees her as a threat to their patron Saint, and ally of Dennis Kucinich (Marxist from Mars), Ron Paul (R-TX) who, with them, thinks the only possible reason to oppose the Ground Zero Mosque is racism. At the same time, they cheer on Sen. Harry Reid's cuckold border policy of opening only the US side of the US/Mexico border.

On second thought, Reason is the best source for the hysterical opposition view to O'Donnell, as their latest boss, Matt Welch, has declared Esquire Magazine as an official judge of "side show freak" certification.  If you want the liberaltarian view from the DC Beltway, that is the place to go.

Were there any other races happening this week? Apparently yes (via my blog buddy).

Five Suspected Terrorists Arrested in London in Advance of Pope Visit


Pope's visit: Five arrested in alleged terror plot



Scotland Yard today arrested five men over an alleged terrorist threat to the pope.
The men were arrested in London at 5.45am on the second day of the pope's visit. Sources say they are believed to be Muslim.
The suspects, aged 26, 27, 36, 40 and 50, were held under the Terrorism Act 2000 at business premises in central London. They were taken to a central London police station, where they will be interviewed by detectives.


The article mentions that they are "believed to be Muslim." Shock!

New Mexico Imam Causes Cartoonist Molly Norris to go into Hiding

I lost the race with John finding the Detroit vs. Northern Virginia vs. Buffalo vs. New Mexico connection on this one. He helped me with most of the links.


The religion of peace death-warrant was issued by Las Cruces, New Mexico's very own Anwar al-Awlaki (أنور العولقي), who the New York Daily News calls "charismatic". Interesting note here, the Obama administration has al-Awlaki on a secret Predator drone hit list. He is suspected to be living in Yemen. How would I know about this secret hit list? The Obama administration had the New York Times announce it.

al-Awlaki was also the spiritual leader to several 9/11 hijackers, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, of Fort Hood "isolated act" fame, the isolated incidentist pantybomber Farouk Abdulmutallab of Nigeria, and the Times Square Tea Party Obama Care protester peace loving Muslim with a pending foreclosure bomber.

On the Advice of the FBI, Cartoonist Molly Norris Disappears From View

You may have noticed that Molly Norris' comic is not in the paper this week. That's because there is no more Molly.
The gifted artist is alive and well, thankfully. But on the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI, she is, as they put it, "going ghost": moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity. She will no longer be publishing cartoons in our paper or in City Arts magazine, where she has been a regular contributor. She is, in effect, being put into a witness-protection program—except, as she notes, without the government picking up the tab. It's all because of the appalling fatwa issued against her this summer, following her infamous "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" cartoon.
When are the rest of you going to rise up against this? The line that "this is not Islam" is not working any more.


She even retracted her Draw Mohammed announcement:

Shortly after her cartoon was published in April, Norris apologized to Muslims, said she was just joking and asked people to NOT draw Mohammad on May 20. But it was already too late thanks to the internet. The idea went viral and quickly more than 100,000 followers were on Facebook pushing the event. 
http://liveshots.blogs.foxnews.com/2010/09/16/seattle-cartoonist-in-hiding/#ixzz0zix447Xz

She also said the wished she had called it "Everybody Draw CEOs of Viacom Day".

What did that get her? A serious enough death threat to have to quit her job and hide. A death threat form a Islamic Holy man from the hardcore left's favorite religion.

Remember the Koran burning preacher from Florida? He didn't burn anything and the death toll is now 19 from Muslims killing people about talking about it or rioting in front of NATO bases over it.

You We elected a president that encourages this type of behavior. He pretends to do something about people like al-Awlaki only as a sideshow and announces it in the newspaper so the terrorists know to hide, if he really has a hit-list for terrorists at all. The mainstream media supports it. They tarnish the reputation of anybody who dares to speak against radical Islam. They have a lot of practice from tarnishing anybody Christian.  Miss Bush yet? At least he let our brave Soldiers do their job without giving away the details of how they were doing it.

I may be a little late to this realization, my eyes opened when radical Muslims were shooting people in the DC Beltway. How was that reported? All over the news people were supposed to be looking for White Supremacists in a white van. Somehow, it was not a story any more when it was discovered they were radical Islamists. Michelle Malkin was one of the few media people who noticed and she was called a racist for it.

Wanting to get murderers off the streets, off the planet and out of our country is not bigotry, it is safety. We are dealing with a religion of a kindergarten playground mindset, but these children in adult bodies have guns and bombs.

When you see something, say something. When you hear something, say something. When you hear people minimizing or condoning terrorist acts let the authorities know and stop associating with them!

Amy Alkon mentioned the Molly Norris situation earlier today.

Google Engineer Spied On Teen Users

Via SlashdotGoogle Engineer Spied On Teen Users
"Former Google employee David Barksdale accessed user accounts to spy on call logs, chat transcripts, contact lists. As a Site Reliability Engineer, Barksdale had access to the company's most sensitive information and even unblocked himself from a teen's buddy list. He met the minors through a Seattle technology group. Angry parents cut off contact with him and complained to Google, who quietly fired him."

Burka Ban Passes French Senate 246-1

France's Senate backs National Assembly and bans women from wearing the burka in public

By PETER ALLENLast updated at 8:24 PM on 14th September 2010
Wearing a burka in public is set to become illegal across France after senators passed a nationwide ban.
The country’s upper house voted by 246 votes to one in favour of the measure, although there were a number of abstentions.
This means that a measure banning full face Islamic veils, also including the niqab, taken by the National Assembly, the lower house, in July was ratified.

Updated: Wheaton Metro Closed Again - Non-Electrified Escalator

I suspect Catwoman The Plot Thins:
UPDATE 8:36 a.m.: A Metro spokesperson tells ABC 7 News the escalators at the Wheaton Metro station were not electrified, as previously reported, and there was no danger to passengers because the power was out. After an extensive interview with the mechanics who worked on the escalators, a Metro spokesperson says the mechanics claim they never told Metro customers that electricity was running through the escalators, which is why they were out of service in the first place. The elevators were also out of service at this time.
Most recent video as of this post:

Updated: Wheaton Metro riders trapped in elevator for 30 minutes - @TBD Neighborhoods | TBD.com:
"Update 6:20 p.m: Adding to the woes at the Wheaton Metro Station today is Metro's announcement that the entire station is closed. Just in time for rush hour, too."
14 September 2010: On the air this AM, Courtney Robinson reported that the escalator was electrified and the elevators were inoperative. The potentially lethal station was closed again, just in time for rush hour. See update at the top.
