Angela Merkel il culone intrombabile

But Silvio Berlusconi might alternatively have used “strutto culo inchiavabile” to describe any other Euro usury kapo, like himself, or his mates Nicolas Sarkozy and David Cameron who paid a surprise visit to Tripoli yesterday to herald the victory of Neoliberal World Bank “Democracy” over Libyan sovereignty –or was it to say thanks in advance for the oil? News of Berlusconi’s wiretapped indiscretion via Twitter offered what online translators would not reveal, how to say “unf*ckable” in the languages of your upstream: infollable, onneukbare… his choice of words remain as yet censored in the German press. Wouldn’t it be curious to learn which cultures have no word for the concept? I’d have thought that would be American.

Bush/Blair have a fall guy!

Iraqi Defector gave defective evidence deliberately, US/UK Defective Detectives failed to notice. See? The Bush, Blair and other governments who launched the blatantly profit-driven war weren’t actually Lying to us in any way, oh, no… They were Misled by a bad ol’ Iraqi. That makes all better, they weren’t dishonest, just stupid. Dig that thar hole a little deeper boys… you’ll dig your way out eventually… lying cowardly profit-hungry chickenshit pukes… LONDON (Reuters) – An Iraqi defector made up claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction to help topple his government, Britain’s Guardian newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The defector, Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, said in an interview with the Guardian that he had fabricated claims of mobile biological weapons and clandestine factories made to German intelligence officials throughout 2000.

Former U.S. President George W. Bush and other high U.S. officials cited the threat posed by Iraqi biological weapons as justification for the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

No such weapons were found and years of political and sectarian bloodshed followed In Iraq, resulting in more than 100,000 mostly civilian deaths.

“Maybe I was right, maybe I was not right,” Janabi, codenamed “Curveball” by U.S. and German intelligence officials, told the newspaper.

“I had a problem with the Saddam regime,” he said. “I wanted to get rid of him and now I had this chance.”

The information from Janabi formed the basis of a 2003 speech by former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell before the United Nations Security Council.

The Guardian said Janabi had told a German official about mobile bioweapons trucks during 2000.

The German secret service, the BND, which had identified Janabi as a Baghdad-based chemical engineer, approached him in March of that year and again in 2002 looking for inside information about Iraq.

“They gave me this chance. I had the chance to fabricate something to topple the regime,” Janabi said.

“Believe me, there was no other way to bring about freedom to Iraq. There were no other possibilities.”

So in other words, they based their claims on the word of one man who had a hateful grudge against Saddam Hussein. Now, if they’d found one of Saddam’s FRIENDS to testify against him that would have been enough evidence to launch an investigation.

The Bush/Blair doctrine was that “if there’s a 1% chance” they had a duty to launch the war, and destroy the economy of every country involved and kick the props out from under the rest of the global economy as well.

How about THIS? Since a lot of the Leaders of the “externally induced coup” claim to be fundamentalist Christians or Zionist Jews or even Muslims, (Saudis, Jordan, Mubarak-the-ex-satrap-of-Egypt, Turkey…) why not do what Jewish/Christian/Sharia law commands, and judge the accusers by the same standards they used to make their judgments?

A lot of people, even non-religious, know the saying, or at least part of it, “Judge not, lest ye also be judged…” and the rest of it “for by the same measure with which ye judge shalt thou also be judged”

How ’bout it, Bush apologists? Colorado Springs Christian Schools, you up for some good ol’ Biblical Judging? Is there a 1% chance that Bush/Blair/Cheney were deliberately lying and deliberately provoked the wars for the profits of the Oil Corporations who they represent far above the representation of the rest of the citizens of America and Britain?
C’mon, folks, They Set The Measure For The Judgment.

The Bible says that if you perjure yourself, “bear false witness against thy neighbor”, you know, one of God’s Top Ten list? then you bear the punishment that resulted by your false witness 7 times over.

Now, I’m not the killin’ sort, but remember, GW set the standard. How about find 7 Bush supporters for every 1 Iraqi killed and 2 Bush supporters for every American or Koalition of the Killing soldier killed (they count for less because so many are Bush supporters themselves) and line them all up in front of a belt fed water cooled machine gun with a deep deep trench behind them? Bush and 6 other hanged for the death of Saddam and 7 apiece for the other lynch-mob Iraqi puppet dictatorship “Justice” system victims. Sound good?

WHAT? No? but but but… y’all were so very eager to send other people over there to kill up a mess of them thar Eye-rackies based on a much harsher measure of judgment… what do you mean you don’t support the Biblical Judgment you impose on others?

Are you the ones who skip over Levitican laws about eating shrimp or blood sacrifice but not the ones about homosexuality and anything else you can twist around to make yourselves feel good about killing Other People to “fulfill the commandment”?

Shame, brethren and sistren, SHAME!

How about them AMERICAN WMDs? Even the ones alleged to be in Saddams possession were American, British, French and German made… America has more of every class of WMD than the rest of the world combined, does that mean that any nations in the world, especially since Bush/Blair launched their unjustified invasion of foreign nations, thus placing US in the same class of criminal conspiracy as alleged against Saddam Hussein and al Qa’eda, could theoretically form their own “Koalition of the Killing” and just invade us and kill up a mess of Americans?

Why not? You claim to speak for every American or even every Christian American, as though you had the authority from God to do so, Right? The essence of Dominionism.

Berlusconi gets another church thrown at him…

Only this time it’s the actual Pope getting in his face, rather than a statue of a church. About having relations with a teen prostitute. He dismissed the accusation as Politically Motivated and vowed to punish the magistrates.
“I Am Your Emperor, Obey Me!! (paraphrase, because he’s not going to stand up to the REAL Empire anytime soon)
 
Not looking good for Silvio. Seems a bit snotty to say that about him, but there’s something about His Merciless Majesty that just doesn’t inspire kind thoughts. I just would a heap rather they throw war crimes charges against him.

From our favorite Fascist (and church-statue Target…)

Ok so he didn’t personally approve it
But, here’s a little censorship for us from Sunny Italy, where you can find the famous Italian Sunny Beaches, like the prosecutor in the case linked above. Seems some juvenile delinquents posted a video on Google of them committing a Hate Crime against an Autistic kid. Four of them. They were then expelled from school. Good, yes? But not so fast… for the “crime” of not seeing the video before it was posted on their site, the top dogs of Google were slammed with criminal prosecution in Italy for “privacy laws”.

Remember that Berlusconi was praised by Bush often for being one of his most Loyal Puppet Dictato errr… “allies” in the Koalition of the Killing.

He’s also a Fascist in everything but name. So, were his Minions really all that concerned about the privacy of the kid who was harrassed and apparently more than once assaulted? No.

They’re concerned more about the Mussolini-jugend junior Skinheads who boasted of committing a felony, took videos of themselves doing it, and posted it on the internet.

You know, they should ENCOURAGE people who commit Hate Crimes to do a video confession and post it voluntarily publish it.

The Skins were expelled from school, which is a big deal in Europe. There you’re probably not going to just move to the next school district and re-enroll.

But in all of it, there was no mention of any prosecution of them for what’s a Felony in civilized areas of the world. Even in really Socially Retarded areas like Texas and Colorado.

I usually do better with the Latin languages than the Germanic, but I don’t know how to say “untermenschen” in Italian. So I’ll leave it with the fact that the Fascists were every bit as guilty of Death Panel style euthanasia of the mentally ill, mentally retarded and other disabled people. Their proposed method for eliminating polio was to just kill the people who had it. I’ve no reason to believe that Berlusconi, so deeply in love with the image of Mussolini in all other areas, would be any different in that.

Sticks and stones can hurt Berlusconi

Silvio BerlusconiWounded premier kept for four days in the hospital. At a young age we’re taught to pretend that words cannot hurt us like sticks and stones. Later we accord to words more power even than paper, scissors, rock –those of us for whom violence is only a surreality.

Both delusions it seems to me come of a world inured by a void of physical hardship. I can’t help but believe that Silvio Berlusconi’s assailant got a message across to the Italian despot that none before had been able to connect, no matter their shouts, pleas or accusations.

Will Berlusconi rebound like Hitler or Stalin after the attempts on their lives? This wasn’t an assassination attempt, whether or not Massimo Tartaglia’s act was premeditated. And it wasn’t a conspiracy either. Massimo by his own hand cut the pompous autocrat down to a mortal stature.

I’m guessing Berlusconi is no stranger to fist fights, he probably pulls his errant subjects’ fingers off using the piers himself. But it’s probably been awhile since he’s been sucker punched. A sudden, uninvited violence like that is the closest example Berlusconi can experience of the institutional violence his regime and ours visit upon innocent people. From out of nowhere.

If Berlusconi and his fellow autocratic leaders beef up their security after this episode, so what? If it now becomes virtually impossible for a common man to get within arms length, or even shoe-throwing distance of a world leader, so what? What expectations do we have that there has ever been communication at that level? Massimo’s gesture, like al-Zaidi’s puts closure on the facade of our leadership. We must communicate among ourselves. Nothing comes of begging crumbs from people in power.

It fills me with inspiration, it really does, to look the wounded visage of Silvio Berlusconi’s, his untouchable countenance wiped clean away.

That said, my favorite scene from Jim Carrey’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas comes at the end, after he’s gotten the best of the despicable Whoville mayor. “No hard feeling?” the Grinch asks, leaning in close and extending his hand. But instead of shaking his hand, he points his finger into the mayor’s face and laughs: Hahahahahaha Hahahahahahaha Hahahahahahahaha Hahahahahahahah!

Signore Massimo Tartaglia fist thrower

Arrest of Silvio Berlusconi assailant December 14So far the only Berlusconi-media-approved photo released of Italian Heavyweight Champion Massimo Tartaglia conveniently corroborates the diagnosis of Tartaglia’s alleged mental illness. What does that say about the average Italian, not crazy enough? Now of course Berlusconi’s press is predicting a wave of public sympathy for the wounded dictator. Basta!
 
My favorite incongruent idiocy came from the lips of Italian President Giorgio Napolitano who condemned the “grave and unusual gesture of aggression,” pleading that political differences be expressed “preventing and heading off every impulse and spiral of violence.” What’s good enough for Iraqis is not gentile enough for poor Berlusconi.

Italian authorities were quick to announce that Tartaglia was confessed remorse for his “cowardly and rash act.” But we can recognize that for bureaucrat-speak, because breaking through, then facing off the Don himself was anything but cowardly.

But then the Italian authorities had to backtrack on the impetuous aspect by confounding themselves with the conclusion that pepper spray and a crucifix discovered on the assailant suggested the attack on Berlusconi was premeditated. Aha. Interior Minister Roberto Maroni said of Tartaglia “He had been developing a rage against the prime minister for some time.”

Really? Since 2002-3 perhaps, when against the wishes of the Italian people, Berlusconi took Italy into the Coalition of the W?

UPDATE
From his hospital bed, Berlusconi is proclaiming “Love always wins over jealousy and hatred.”

While thousands of Italian Facebook users discover they have been involuntarily drafted into Friends of Silvio groups. While thousands of others find their newly formed Fans of Massimo Tartaglia group has been deleted.

Silvio Berlusconi – Sic Semper Piggus

Too bad they didn’t drag him and his mistress naked through the streets.

The Italian cops made sure to describe the Real Man who did that to him as “mentally ill.” Because of course, one would Simply HAVE to be crazy not to love a murdering puke.

I know. I have this saying, that hitting people won’t ever get their hearts right. It’s about certain that the violence is going to ramp up now.

Of course, it was going to anyway, and Mr Berlusconi is going to be portrayed as some sort of Holy Martyr.

EXCEPT… There’s going to be reminders, and not gentle either, of aspects the State Controlled Press (More like, the “free” press is owned by the same corporations which own the State) won’t make much of… without a little prodding and dissent from their standard line. One is that he was literally hit with a church.

There’s a passage in Tom Sawyer, about the town drunk Muff Potter being so heavily passed out that you could have hit him with a church and he wouldn’t notice.

But the Fascist party, of which he’s not “officially” a member… actually holds a lot of sway in Italy, France and Spain, and under that very name. And, they like to wrap up their crap in a blanket made of Church. Nothing unusual about that, even their aggressive level of “Pander to the Pope”.

What is unusual, and hugely important… Is the religious implications of hitting him with a church.

Massimo Tartaglia will be reviled in the “free” Corporate Media as a madman, or a terrorist, or both, and is almost certainly suffering a hugely disproportionate level of violent punishment, perhaps even torture, at the hands of the Fascist prison guards. Just like “our” cops would do.

The remark that he was “mentally ill” is their cover for doing it, when he shows up in court bruised and bloody they’ll tell the Judge that he did it to himself, and who is going to be believed?

It’ll be his word against that of The PIGS and no judge in the world ever gainsays his Fellow PIGS.

There are still Americans who agree with the Iraqi Puppet “government” over them Torturing al Zaihidi for throwing his shoes at Bush. They try to gloss over that for three weeks of that Torture Session he was directly under the control of the U.S. Air Force at an Air Force “hospital.”

Even wired up a “counter demonstration” in Paris last week where a Coward threw his shoes at al Zaihidi, then hid behind the French Government, who most certainly didn’t take him into a nearby room for the purpose of breaking his arm and other tortures, like their fellow Pigs did to al Zaihidi.

Kind of like the monkeys at the zoo throwing their feces at the lions, knowing full well they’re protected from retaliation.

Tartaglia is going to have a really hard time ahead for this symbolic act of Real Courage.

Berlusconi, like the Paris shoe-tosser and the Monkeys in the Zoo and the Torture Freak Sadistic U.S.A.F. Security Police in Baghdad, felt that his Goon Squad would protect him from any retaliation.

Their attitude of “might makes right” gets challenged every now and then.

Italian Dictator gets punched in face

duomo milano statuette figurineDec 13, MILAN– Massimo Tartaglia, 42, struck Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi with a miniature statue of Milan’s Duomo Cathedral.
 
Heeeeheeeeheeee
 
My worries about it are that the guy who beat his ass is going to be in a U.S. Torture Chamber within the hour. Like al Zaihidi was after he chunked his shoes at Our Own Beloved ex-Dictator.

“The Worlds Most Persecuted Man”

Berlusconi. Yeah, in true right wing Crybaby fashion, he’s trying to outdo Rush Limbaugh (who was paid more than a billion dollars according to some sources, to spew his Anti-Everybody Hatred and Corporate lies) and Weepy Beck, in putting himself out as equivalent to Christ on the Cross.

The First Italian since Mussolini to declare himself above any laws, unlike the political prisoners he holds on behalf of Deposed Monarch Richard Cheney he’s never spent an hour in jail…. But he’s “persecuted”

Professional Victimhood has hit an all-time Low Standard. Leave us take a few moments to shed some Crocodile Tears for poor, persecuted Silvio Berlusconi.

Ok moment is officially past.

Italy’s emperor gets hauled down

berlusconi.jpg Silvio Berlusconi reminds one of an Italian version of the fascist-leaning Fox News owner, Rupert Murdoch. Both own the press and in Berlusconi’s case, he even bought the top political position in his country though Murdoch likes to stay in the shadows and just buy the politicians. But now Italy’s emperor gets hauled down to the ground by his wife! She accuses him of being the sugar daddy for a 17 year old girl… Oh Slick Willy!

PROFILE of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi

“That’s enough, I cannot remain with a man who consorts with minors,” Ms (Veronica) Lario was quoted as saying in La Repubblica.

“I read in the papers about how he has been hanging around a minor – because he must have known her before she was 18 – and how she called him ‘Grandpa’ and about their meetings in Rome and Milan.

“This is no longer acceptable. How can I stay with such a man?” La Stampa quoted her as saying.

She also said Mr Berlusconi had failed to attend his own daughters’ 18th birthday celebrations.
————————————————————————————————————–
Well there! One can see that the Big Conservative Values Man of Italy has certainly fallen a bit short in the eyes of his current wife in the personal morality department. One wonders what Pope Rat thinks of all this? Will Silvio be forgiven in the eyes of the Church, if not his wife’s?

This Italian telenovela just keeps getting funnier and funnier. We want to say Poor Italy, but we really can’t, because they at least eat much better than we do in the US. Now where is Monica these days?

Once again, the sick Catholic Church is in the news

Pope Ratzinger BenedictThe sick Catholic Church just never ceases to amaze! Italy is now embroiled in its very own Terry Schiavo case, and the Catholic Church is trying to bring murder charges against a father for allowing his brain dead daughter to finally die after 17 years passed in a vegetative state. Can you imagine people any more cruel than this? Despite the change in the Pope’s views about evolution, this Pope and this church seem to have less brains than a herd of spider monkeys does! Death probe for coma case father and see also…

‘At an emotional press conference on live TV, Premier Silvio Berlusconi vowed to save Englaro`s life. A law on living wills sparked by the Englaro case has started its way through parliament and the government hopes it will be passed by the summer. There is currently no legislation governing living wills in Italy. A living-will law passed by a conservative-dominated parliament would be extremely restrictive, observers say, although it could be open to charges of breaching the Italian Constitution. Berlusconi has said the law will “forbid any sort of euthanasia“. It would also prevent doctors from removing feeding tubes from people “unable to take care of themselves“, he said.’ from ELUANA FATHER PROBED FOR MURDER

It’s the Italian Catholic Church behind this semi-fascist Italian version of Dubya the chimp, Silvio Berlusconi, but this case is not the only one in the news this week that demonstrates the sick Catholic Church’s lunacy! Travel to Brazil and we see where the one half way sane priest in the Church get’s canned by his pedophile hiding archbishop this week! Do you think that the creepy Pope Rat will reverse this? Not a chance! He’s going to side with the pedophile hiding archbishop, that’s what! See Brazil priest suspended for views

…The BBC report doesn’t let you in on that this archbishop was in the news in 2002 for covering up for his pedophile priest under investigation who later got convicted despite his active opposition to the police’s investigation! Sick! And in contrast, the punished priest’s supposed crimes? He advocated that condoms be used during sex! And he had the nerve to say that homosexuals shouldn’t be discriminated against.

Here is the Archbishop now back when he was a mere bishop relatively unrewarded for his service to the Catholic Church hierarchy….

‘Brazil Fr. Sebastiao Luiz Tomaz 13 – Nineteen girls between the ages of 10 and 16 reported some type of sexual contact with the priest in exchange for clothes and money. Later the same year, Bishop Aldo Pagotto was denounced by the Public Ministry of Ceara for attempting to coerce this priest’s victims to change their testimony. By July 2002 21 victims had come forward, and nine claims had been proven with medical evidence.14’

from SEXUAL ABUSE & MISCONDUCT IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH Note though… This archbishop is a biggie in the movement to criminalize all abortions in Brazil, so Pope Rat certainly will be helping the archbishop out in his dispute with the liberal priest. Immoral people preaching morality to others… That’s the church! They make one want to vomit up Holy Wafers big time!
