We all heard the same report, but this is a sampling of the liberal response. You can thank me later, but I actually waded through this stuff saving you from the BDS exhibited by these morons.
Hmm...economy on the rocks, Bush's disapproval rating hits a record high, dissatisfaction with Iraq hits a record high...BOOGA BOOGA! Terror! Al Qaeda! Look over there!

Everybody needs to stay calm....they tell us this every fricken year since 9/11. It's a government scare tactic. We are close to another election, and what better way to keep the sheep behind the fence then by fear of the "maybe" happening.

Oh no! Not the malls! I mean, the fact that 5 political hacks and bums on the supreme court threw a federal election, and destroyed any remnant of democracy in this country, and that a mass-murdering moron continues to occupy the white house and destroy our nation is OK. But - if the terrorists destroy the malls, where will we get big-screen TVs! This must send chills down the spines of every true 'merikan.
Posted by: Bob Nov 8, 2007 12:16:33 PM
Whatever!!! I am really sick of these guys leaking this stuff to inspire fear just about the time they want to take more freedom away or distract from some illegal thing they did that the media picked up on. I'm not buying it anymore.

We don't need Al Qaeda to disrupt the U.S. economy, we've got Gearge Bush!
Posted by: easystreet47 Nov 8, 2007 12:18:21 PM
At the rate the economy is going, no worry, none of us will have any money to be at the malls shopping.

Hmm..lets see. Once again we have information, "that U.S. intelligence officers are uncertain as to whether the information is real, and intelligence officers say there is a concern that it could be "disinformation." What the FBI & the DHS has turned into is a Ministry of Disinformation. Goebbels and Goering are laughing in their graves.

Let's see, there was an planned jihadi bombing of the mall in Cherry Valley, IL and the jihadi shooting up the mall in Utah, both within the last year.
So obviously any warning from the federal government that there could be a coordinated attack at malls during the busiest time of year is obviously a plot by the Bush administration to boost their ratings.
Posted by: mike Nov 8, 2007 12:43:30 PM
I suppose this is planned for Black Friday - I do believe these attacks are planned on a yearly basis. Of course no one will be in the malls this year as no one has ANY MONEY!!!Shouldn't be a problem. Any chance of Bush and Cheney shopping in these malls during the planned attacks?

fear mongering... just in time for the primaries
Posted by: Nolff Nov 8, 2007 12:46:12 PM
I am glad this is being treated with the contempt it deserves. Not that it might not happen, but if it does, we are not as likely to invade another wrong country.
Posted by: Jim1348 Nov 8, 2007 12:50:01 PM
Remember, we must remain "vigilant", like Dubya told us...that will stop the attacks.
Posted by: Ahora Nov 8, 2007 12:52:25 PM
If these attacks take place, I as a conservative would greatly favor impeachment of Bush for he has allowed the border to stay open and God only knows how many terrorists have come in disguised as tomatoe pickers. Terrorists are here to do jobs Americans won't do too-whacko McVeigh excluded.

OH B.S.!Just another Bu$hCo production of distraction.
and WELL SAID! Dave J. "Hmm...economy on the rocks, Bush's disapproval rating hits a record high, dissatisfaction with Iraq hits a record high...BOOGA BOOGA! Terror! Al Qaeda! Look over there!"
IFFFF one damned thing blows up in this country, I personally want the Military Commission's Act, the Patriot Act, FISA updates, and all the other nightmare policies Bu$hCo has enacted TRASHED IMMEDIATELY for not working. AND I WANT THE ENTIRE BU$H CABAL GONE!
Oh! And WE CAN LEAVE IRAQ TOO, CAUSE THEY'RE FIGHTING US OVER HERE, NO NEED TO FIGHT THEM THERE ANYMORE.

That dialysis machine that the CIA gave to OBL must be working ok. American health care at its best.
Posted by: Paul V. Sheridan Nov 8, 2007 12:57:14 PM
This highlights the real harm the Bush Admin did in lying to the world about an Iraqi threat. They can't be trusted. When there is a real threat the USA no-one will be able to believe them. I can only hope that someday justice will be done and Bush/ Cheney will be in prison where they belong.
Posted by: Ballard High Nov 8, 2007 12:59:55 PM
9-11 was an inside job, and a 'terrorist' mall attack will be too. This will be the next 'false-flag' attack by the globalist cabal at the top levels of our government to expand the national security umbrella to malls, shopping areas - and every other place that isn't already under the maniacal grip of police-state control. The trucks rounding up dissidents for detention and extermination will follow. Thanks FEMA!
Posted by: Jeffro X Nov 8, 2007 1:00:58 PM
"al Qaeda hoped to disrupt the U.S. economy and has been planning the attack for the past two years." Maybe they should enlist George Bush - he's done more to crash-dive the economy and devalue the Dollar than any terrorist could dream of doing...
Posted by: Will Merkin Nov 8, 2007 1:00:59 PM
Disrupt the economy?!!? More than Bernake and the rest of those buffoons in DC?!? Gimme a damn break.
Posted by: KDR Nov 8, 2007 1:01:24 PM
I don't know if cheney/bush can get away with pulling another 911 sham but it is timely that we're headed srt8 into a depression and they pull the old pickpocket ruse, bump and distract=TERRORISTS!! YIKES! While we all go broke and our country is ruined from the inside. Shame on us. We're letting this happen to ourselves. 911 was an inside job designed to have THIS VERY EFFECT. Be afraid while cheney/bush destroy our whole country.
Posted by: steve carter Nov 8, 2007 1:01:36 PM
They are coming to get us, Help me please... Just more fear mongering from Bush and Cheney.
If they were really worried they would have shut down the constant flow of illegal immigrants coming across our borders.
Bush is a liar, and his administration has used 9/11 to trample our rights in the name of Security.
Remember this quote from our forefathers...
"people willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both" Posted by: HoHum Nov 8, 2007 1:05:09 PM
Gee imagine that, another terror warning just as our gas prices are set to go up to $4 a gallon within the next few weeks. Nothing like taking your mind off of being raped at the pumps like another good ol Al Qaeda warning! Thanks for looking out for us Bush & Company.
Posted by: Jen Nov 8, 2007 1:05:29 PM
Beware of shopping mall Santa's who only learned how to FLY the sleigh, but don't care how to LAND it. More nonsense paranoia from the minimal mind of George Bush, distracting his citizens from the many, many problems he's NOT addressing at home.
Posted by: Bob Nov 8, 2007 1:06:10 PM
Ratcheting up the scare factor as usual...why anybody continues to believe in the myth of AL QAEDA is beyond me...the gubberment couldn't protect anything but their own interests in case of an "attack" anyway...
Posted by: Jeff Nov 8, 2007 1:07:56 PM
Okay, I give up. I am no where near even a tenth of the total comments written and this junior high crowd is boring me.
Whatever happened to the loyal opposition and reasoned debate. It died in "school".
Generational test for Republicans
Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.), once a skeptic of global warming, got a hint
that the political winds might be shifting when a longtime supporter warned that
he might vote against Inglis if he “didn’t clean up his act on the
The warning came from Inglis’ eldest son, Robert Jr., now 22.
His daughter was no less blunt about the congressman’s refusal to
embrace the view that global warming was being caused by human actions and that a serious response is needed. “I have three more kids coming up — and they seem to share the same view,” Inglis said.
Warming? You bet and then there will be cooling. Man-made? Rubbish and if Republicans cave and start supporting this crap, voters will see them for what they are. Cowards and opportunists.
‘Fundamentally Inconsistent’ With University Values
Organizers of the Academy on Capitalism and Limited Government Fund hoped to turn their new program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign into a Hoover Institution of the Midwest, a model for getting more free market ideals and ideological diversity into major research universities.
But when a faculty committee was able to get all the details of the
agreement that created the new center, it found provisions that were
“fundamentally inconsistent” with university values that are designed to ensure
a diversity of views. Specifically, the panel found that portions of the
agreement would have restricted funds to research designed to reflect certain
points of view, and that donors were given control over matters traditionally
left to academics.
The faculty panel — which was appointed by the chancellor — said it
was “deeply troublesome” that the agreement to accept the center was made
without faculty consultation and that many details were kept secret until
recently. The panel called for Chancellor Richard Herman to renegotiate the deal
for the academy and on Tuesday, a spokeswoman confirmed that he had pledged to do so.
“We’re open to working in a collaborative way with the donors,” Burbules said, as long as any arrangement shows “unambiguous” respect for academic principles.
I'd believe the collaborator part, but respect for academic principles? Come on, what academic principles? Most faculty members are mini Mao's regurgitating the teachings from their own Little Red Books.
Academic principles, indeed. At least I didn't have to pay tuition to get professorial chuckles delivered right into my home. Maybe U of I at Urbana-Champaign faculty could up the humor level and hire Ward Churchill as a spokesman. Hilarity will be had by all.
Too bad today's students have to suffer under regime-like indoctrination instead of getting an education.
WJC: She's big in Canada, Europe
The Clinton campaign puts a lot of faith in polls, but Bill Clinton, in the first of two stops in Western Iowa today, cited one I hadn't seen before: A survey showing that Hillary is the front-runner among Democrats and Republicans ... in Canada, Britain and Italy.
"In every country, without question, if you take out the undecided,
she had the absolute majority," Clinton said. "They like her, they respect
(You do have to figure there's a name recognition factor here.)
"America's not going to get a honeymoon here," Clinton said, and
the next president will have to move fast to repair relations with the rest of
the world. "She would be the best to do that."
"repair relations"? Hey Billy, you mean like in France, Germany and England? Maybe Bosnia? Oh you mean with Lil'Putin's mini USSR and Communist China.
Yeah, Billy, you hop right on that.
The Anti-Neocon Fervor
Not long ago, while visiting a friend at Oxford University, I found
myself in a heated political discussion with a Scotsman. The subject of our
dispute was the Iraq war, but the conversation turned toward the rise of latent
anti-Semitism in once-respectable quarters of British opinion. Two years
earlier, a story entitled “A Kosher Conspiracy?,” illustrated by a gold Star of
David plunged into the heart of the Union Jack, graced the cover of Britain’s
most prominent left-wing magazine, The New Statesman. Since then, the
intellectual climate had only worsened. In response to my remark that many use
the epithet “neocon” to describe Jews, my interlocutor replied, “I’d rather be
an anti-Semite than a neocon.”
If you liked the Brady Bunch, you were a neocon, even if you didn't know it! And you kissed Alice. A lot.
When the Red Planet's local boy, Dennis Kucinich, decided to impeach Cheney I thought if this made it out of committee it is something I should look at. So I tried.
Key words (to me) that Bob tries to couch his logic within:
After all, one year ago yesterday, we elected the Democrats in overwhelming
numbers to amplify our screaming voices to a decibel loud enough to penetrate
the unchecked corridors of power in Washington -- we hired this party to speak
for us and to use this expressed authority to end the war and to hold this
historically unpopular executive regime accountable.
"overwhelming numbers to amplify our screaming voices to a decibel loud enough to penetrate the unchecked corridors of power in Washington." What a crap filled crock of wishful thinking cloaked in ignorance. That corruption merely capped Republican's conservative demise making them nothing more that pork filled big government Democrats would corrupt liberal dreams of a populace dreamily cheering them and their ideals to the forefront of history. Cesca's mandate for the immediate end of American involvement in Iraq is beyond delusional, it is an outright lie that the left has hung its hat on. Their heads will be cold this winter.
I'm sure someone takes Bob Cesca seriously, but as the "the el miriachi of comedy" he created a "new kind of comedy about a new kind of war" titled The War Effort, which Bob calls "a satirical documentary about the nation's post-9/11 knee-jerk patriotism. " By jingoism, I think he's got it! The comedians are all really sad don'tcha know.
To emphasize his knee-jerk liberalism, Bob also wrote these thought provoking phrases meant to sway the masses, the great unwashed masses that Bob and his betters are protecting through the jingoism of liberal defeat and self doubt:
"the collapse of Karl Rove's thousand-year Reich"
"the Bush administration's pro-torture policy"
"the regime's unitary executive theory"
"Dick Cheney: the most subversive political villain of our time"
"Dick Cheney: a man who has proudly committed innumerable high crimes"
"the Republicans still hold a collection of Democratic balls inside a cryogenic flask hidden somewhere on the Mall"
"a majority of Americans, including a majority of independent voters, support the impeachment of Dick Cheney"
"their collective objections to the vice president's malfeasance"
"To the neocons and Bush Republicans, logic, compassion, reason and rationality are the stuff of the "faggy" left wing"
"When the Democrats acquiesce on torture or impeachment or anything that might reunite them with their balls"
"don't expect hand-holding and mutual masturbation between the Bush Republican White House and the Democratic Congress"
How sad Bob.
UPDATE: My sister just e-mailed me to tell me that she thinks Bob Cesca is really just a cover name for a popular bodice ripping Harlequin Books novelist. Could be.
