Pound of Cyanide-Muslim-No Terrorist Here

Yeah – there’s no possibility of any terrorism threat here – move along, move along:

Police confirmed Wednesday that they found about a pound of sodium cyanide in a Denver hotel room where the body of a Canadian man was discovered earlier this week.

Police spokesman John White identified the white powder as sodium cyanide, the crystal form of cyanide. Fire officials say they found a bottle containing about a pound of the white powder, or between a pint and a quart by volume.

The medical examiner’s office said it is awaiting test results to determine whether cyanide killed 29-year-old Saleman Abdirahman Dirie, of Ottawa, Canada.

His body was found Monday inside Room 408 at The Burnsley Hotel, which is about four blocks from the state Capitol. White said Dirie had been dead for several days. Friends told The Ottawa Sun that he was dead six days before he was discovered.

After all he’s just a dead Canadian, right?  Well…..

An online threat posted in July by a man with a similar name warned of death.

“Having the bible in one hand, and a bread in the other hand, is not a correct thing! Kill Them , Kill them, Kill them, that is my massage (sic),!” read the posting by Abdirahman Dirie on the ‘Solmali’s for Jesus’ Blog.It was not clear if Abdirahman Dirie and Saleman Abdirahman Dirie are the same person.

But of course – therre is absolutely no suspicion that anything at all was wrong.  People with a pound of cyanide are as common as fleas on a homeless dog – at least according to the spokespeople:

The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force is assisting in the investigation but FBI spokeswoman Kathy Wright said the incident has no apparent connection to terrorism.

Authorities have not listed Dirie’s occupation or said why he may have had cyanide. White said sodium cyanide is readily available in stores and is the main ingredient in rat poison.

Police have said Dirie’s death appears to be an isolated incident and it doesn’t appear to have anything to do with the upcoming Democratic National Convention here.

The FBI said Wednesday that there’s probably no reason for them to go back to the fourth- floor room at the Burnsley Hotel, where Dirie, 29, of Canada, was found Monday.

Move along – Move along – nothing to see here.

Update:

Apparently somebody is continuing to blog under the name listed above:

Bloggers were abuzz Wednesday over a threatening posting by a man with nearly the same name as Dirie.

“Having the bible in one hand, and a bread in the other hand, is not a correct thing! Kill Them, Kill them, Kill them, that is my massage!” read the comment by Abdirahman Dirie, on July 11.

The bloggers were discussing violence against Somali Christians, and Dirie apparently was taking the side of the Somali Muslims.

But the blogger Abdirahman Dirie was online again Wednesday, meaning it couldn’t be the same person, unless someone had taken the name as a joke.

Was there a possible connection between the death and last month’s fiery blog posting?

“We can’t comment on where the investigation might be leading us,” Wright said.

1.  Yes – cyanide is something people use to kill themselves – as well as rats and other vermin.

2.  Then why have they already released the body when all official sources say the cause of death is unknown?

3.  And when will these guys learn to stop rushing around and the first thing out of their mouths is “no terrorism suspected”?  Just how stupid are we to pretend to be here?  A Somali Muslim from Canada with a bunch of cyanide – wouldn’t somebody with half a brain even have a suspicion?

The Family That Passes Out On The Front Lawn Together

Apparently get run over by somebody backing out of the driveway:

Police are citing alcohol consumption as a factor in a tragedy in which a woman allegedly killed her sister-in-law and injured two other family members by driving over them while they slept on the ground outside her home.

RCMP said several people were at the home in Berens River at the time of the incident Saturday afternoon, and they had been drinking.

A concerned reserve resident, who did not want to give her name, said the family had been drinking together at the house and the mother, the father and daughter passed out in the front yard.

“It was 4:30 and it was a sunny day. You do crazy things when you’re drinking and they passed out on the ground,” the resident said.

They are passed out drunk on the driveway at 4:30 in the afternoon? That’s some serious drinking. And the police state that “alcohol consumption is a factor? Knock me over with a feather. And yes – this is on a “Native Reserve” which is the Canadian version of an Indian Reservation. So drinking and “sleeping” (what a nice way to say passed out) all day apparently are what happens.

And just how drunk does the driver have to be to run over not 1, not 2, but 3 people before figuring out those speed bumps in the driveway are people?

Free Speech – As Long As You Think as We Approve

In Canada, which is suffering from a serious freedom deficit lately:

In response to a series of controversies over abortion debates on Canadian campuses, the student government of York University in Toronto has tabled an outright ban on student clubs that are opposed to abortion.

Gilary Massa, vice-president external of the York Federation of Students, said student clubs will be free to discuss abortion in student space, as long as they do it “within a pro-choice realm,” and that all clubs will be investigated to ensure compliance.

You vill be investigated.  You vill be “pro-choice”.  And if not?  Apparently you will be murdered – which is simply choice taken to post-birth.

Please Let It Be True

Of course, we know that these liberals are a bunch of liars when it comes to promising to leave America if the peasants don’t elect their chosen one, but we can only hope that Susan Sarandon follows up on this one:

If McCain gets in, it’s going to be very, very dangerous,” she says.

“It’s a critical time, but I have faith in the American people. If they prove me wrong, I’ll be checking out a move to Italy. Maybe Canada, I don’t know. We’re at an abyss.”

We will all rejoice if she actually leaves. And if she goes, I hope she takes her filthy idiot Tim Robbins along with her too.

Obambi – Pertinent Information Supplied

Is Obama actually going to get some real questions?  Looks like handling the press that is not kneeling down in fawning supplication isn’t as much fun:

An exasperated Barack Obama scurried away Monday from the toughest news conference of his campaign, telling reporters who kept shouting questions that he’d spent enough time on the grill.

“Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions,” Obama, looking surprised, told shouting reporters as he fled the room. “We’re running late.”

The first question was about a private talk an Obama economic adviser had with a Canadian official – reportedly saying that the harshness of Obama’s criticisms of the North American Free Trade Agreement was for political show.

Last week, Obama denied an initial media report about the conversation. But after a Canadian government memo surfaced, he acknowledged yesterday there was a conversation.

“When I gave you that information, that was the information that I had at the time,” he said. His camp still disputes the memo’s account of the discussion.

That was the information I had at the time?  Oh come on Bambi – nobody lets a Republican get away with that answer.

The questioning then turned to Obama’s links to ex-fund-raiser Tony Rezko, who went on trial in Chicago Monday on corruption charges. A reporter asserted Obama hadn’t fully answered journalists’ questions on Rezko.

Obama insisted he had – during a past news conference with Chicago media. But another persisted that questions remain unanswered, such as ones about fund-raisers Rezko held for him.

Obama replied, “These requests, I think, can just go on forever. …” He said the “pertinent” information had been provided.

When Obama declared the press conference over, one reporter yelled that he was dodging questions just minutes after claiming he wasn’t.

Oh yes – its all the fault of Hillary Clinton, those questions on Rezko, isn’t it Barry?

Abiding By Kyoto – Not!

World and U.S. opinion seems to revolve around who signed Kyoto rather than actual carbon dioxide emissions. Once again, stated intent trumps actual results. Can even the global warming believers possibly believe this treaty has anything to do with it?

One would think that countries that committed to the Kyoto treaty are doing a better job of curtailing carbon emissions. One would also think that the United States, the only country that does not even intend to ratify, keeps on emitting carbon dioxide at growth levels much higher than those who signed.
And one would be wrong.

  • Emissions worldwide increased 18.0%.
  • Emissions from countries that signed the treaty increased 21.1%.
  • Emissions from non-signers increased 10.0%.
  • Emissions from the U.S. increased 6.6%.
  • In fact, emissions from the U.S. grew slower than those of over 75% of the countries that signed Kyoto.  Below are the growth rates of carbon dioxide emissions, from 1997 to 2004, for a few selected countries, all Kyoto signers. (Remember, the comparative number for the U.S. is 6.6%.)
    • Maldives, 252%.
    • Sudan, 142%.
    • China, 55%.
    • Luxembourg, 43%
    • Iran, 39%.
    • Iceland, 29%.
    • Norway, 24%.
    • Russia, 16%.
    • Italy, 16%.
    • Finland, 15%.
    • Mexico, 11%.
    • Japan, 11%.
    • Canada, 8.8%.

    Free Speech – Not in Canada

    Nor in Europe, Africa, Asia, or South America. And all those with Bush Derangement Syndrome who blather on prove the point. You can freely speak and write in America – including the most base and egregious slurs against the very President of the country.

    clipped from corner.nationalreview.com
    One of the critical differences between America and the rest of the west is that America has a First Amendment and the rest don’t. And a lot of them are far too comfortable with the notion that in free societies it is right and proper for the state to regulate speech.
    These “human rights” censors started with small fry – obscure websites, “homophobes” who made the mistake of writing letters to local newspapers or quoting the more robust chunks of Leviticus – and, because they got away with it, it now seems entirely reasonable for a Canadian pseudo-court to�sit in judgment on�the content of a mainstream magazine and put a big old “libel chill” over critical areas of public debate. The�”progressive” left has grown accustomed to the regulation of speech, thinking it just a useful way of sticking it to Christian fundamentalists, right-wing columnists, and other despised groups. They don’t know they’re riding a tiger that in the end will devour them, too.
