Exposing the Lies of Westboro

"Price is Right" host and comedian Drew Carey exposes the lies and heresy of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church at his new blog. Drew mentions a video that features the church choir singing "God Hates the World."

Perhaps Westboro's members should read their Bibles more often, especially John 3:16:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (KJV; emphasis mine)

Red Alert: Iran's Election Results


The Iranian election is currently in turmoil. Both Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and challenger Mir Hossein Mousavi are claiming to be ahead in the vote. Preliminary results from the presidential vote show Ahmadinejad leading; Iranian Election Commission chief Kamran Danesho held a press conference at 11:45 p.m. local time and announced that with some 20 percent of the votes counted, the president was leading with 3,462,548 votes (69.04 percent), while his main challenger, Mousavi, had 1, 425,678 (28.42 percent). Sources tell STRATFOR that these preliminary numbers pertain to the votes from the smaller towns and villages, where the president has considerable influence, as he has distributed a lot of cash to the poor.

However, Iran’s state-run Press TV is saying that only 10 million of 24 million votes, or around 42 percent of the vote, have been counted. At the same time, they are also claiming that 69 percent of the vote has been counted. Obviously the numbers are not adding up, and the agencies themselves appear to be in chaos.

Prior to the announcement of the results, Mousavi held a press conference in which he said he was the winner of the election. The opposition camp is greatly concerned about fraud, and STRATFOR has been told that Mousavi has vowed to resist any fraud, even if it entails taking to the streets. This means there is considerable risk of unrest should Ahmadinejad emerge as the winner. But so far there is no evidence that the government is mobilizing security forces to deal with any such eventuality.

The situation is being monitored carefully, as it is potentially explosive.

Big Blow for Brown and the European Left

British PM Gordon Brown's Labour Party, already reeling from the MPs' expenses scandal, suffered major losses in the European Parliament elections. Other leftists suffered in this weekend's elections. Europeans disillusioned by the recession flocked to the right. While legit law-and-order mainstream conservatives prevailed, the whites-only, anti-immigrant British National Party won two seats. People who voted for those two seats voted for hatred and false conservatism.
