After trading insults with activist, parliamentarian first throws a shoe and then points a gun at adversary. Host tries to break up brawl. No shots fired
A Jordanian member of parliament pulled a gun on a political activist during a furious debate live on Jordanian TV on Friday.
The MP, named in a YouTube clip of the confrontation as Mohammed Shawabka, was debating a political activist named in the clip as Mansour Sayf al-Din Murad, discussing aspects of Jordanian politics including attitudes surrounding the uprising in Syria.
As the discussion became more heated, each of the men accused the other of various crimes and deviancies, including working for the Israeli Mossad intelligence agency. “You’re a Mossad agent,” said one. “You’re a big crook,” said the other.
The MP stood up and began screaming and pointing at the activist, who was sitting opposite him, while the host of the program, Mohammed Habashneh, seated in the center, desperately urged his guests to “calm down.”
Instead, the MP sat back down, bent over and took off his right shoe, and threw it at the activist, who ducked behind his desk, knocking it over.
Then the MP pulled a gun — a silver pistol — out of his waistband and briefly brandished it toward the activist, who walked toward him. The MP kept holding the gun, but was no longer pointing it at his critic.
The two men struggled, with the parliamentarian again careful now not to point the gun at his adversary, while the panicked host circumnavigated the strewn furniture to try to break up the fight.
But the two men would not be easily separated, and the brawl continued for some time before the program cut to the credits.
Something you won’t hear much from our liberal press (bought and paid for by obama and his buddies).
Most of the media coverage of the 2012 campaign treats a Republican advantage in super-PAC spending as a given. This assumption is echoed by increasingly dire comments from President Obama, his advisers, and other Democrats.
At a New York City fundraiser last month, President Obama lamented that opposition to his reelection bid will be fueled by “$500 million in super-PAC negative ads that are going to be run over the course of the next five months that will try to feed on those fears and those anxieties and that frustration.”
“We put out a fund-raising letter because we’re facing about a billion dollars of super-PAC spending,” Obama’s chief strategist, David Axelrod, told CNN. He has also referred to “the Rove and Koch brothers contract killers over there in super-PAC land.”
“With every passing week, Democratic insiders are becoming more and more panicked that, by November, their Republican opponents will have buried them under a mountain of money,” reports The New Republic. “The GOP money machine — that is, American Crossroads, the super PAC co-founded by Karl Rove; Americans for Prosperity, the group backed by the billionaire Koch brothers; and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce — has vowed to spend $1 billion combined before Election Day.”
Now this is fun to watch!
Ever go to a baseball game and notice the one guy whose life goal, it seems, is to start The Wave? In this day and age, many attempts are rendered futile, as the cheer’s popularity has waned in recent years. If only “that guy” had the Belarus Army on his side. Their seamless domino effect would make any stadium fall in line.
Just a joke that someone just thought I would laugh at. Well, I smiled, about all. Maybe you will just smile, or laugh? Oh, it is an old joke.
When devastating hurricanes struck the Gulf Coast , even houses of worship were not spared.
A local television station interviewed a black woman from New Orleans and asked how the loss of churches in the area had affected their lives.
Without hesitation, the woman replied, “I don’t know ’bout all those other people, but we ain’t gone to Churches in years. We gets our chicken from Popeye’s.”
And some funny stuff in the news. Lesson from this is never go shopping with your mother?
BRANDON, MS (WLBT) -
A Brandon man is in jail after a failed robbery attempt, and he has his mother to thank.
Twenty-two-year-old Roy Mitchell’s mother stopped him during the middle of his crime by taking away the weapon he had aimed at the clerk. It was all caught on video.
It was around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday when Mitchell entered D’s 1 Stop convenience store on Highway 80 in Brandon.
Wednesday, store owner Mandeep Singh provided the surveillance video of the incident to WLBT News.
On the video, Mitchell can be seen quickly grabbing some nacho cheese Doritos and throwing them on the counter.
He then handed the clerk $2 to pay for his snack, but then things changed dramatically.
As the clerk went to get change from the cash register, Mitchell pulled a gun out of his waistband.
He then pointed the gun directly at the clerk and demanded all the money in the drawer.
Then, Mitchell’s mother walks up, grabs the gun and orders him out of the store. Mitchell obeyed and left the store with the bag of chips and no cash.
Police say Mitchell’s mother tried to explain to the clerk the gun wasn’t real and begged the clerk not to call the law.
Mitchell and his mother left the scene in a red Oldsmobile. The clerk called the police
A short time later the vehicle was stopped by Pelahatchie police. Officers found a plastic gun in the vehicle that was made to look like the real thing.
Odd thought here. I wonder just how many people really believe that any movie with dinosaurs in them are using real live dinosaurs?

Obama and the liberals don’t have to indoctrinate out kids much. The kids are already in step as one being!
Read this, as I have to really agree with him on this point.
What should be the correct course of action right now in the Middle East? There are many strategies and opinions to be debated. I believe overt action should be taken. If you disagree, tell me to pound sand. But please offer another strategy instead of merely criticizing mine.
What our government needs to do in regard to Middle East strategy is to take bold steps, grow balls and stand up to China and Russia. Initiate a creation of a “New Iraq.” This is my first response to this growing conflict. In response to the “under the radar” operations that we have allowed China and Russia, they are already involved in the Syrian conflict. Since 2003, we have created an “ally” in the Middle East. Iraq. Although a questionable ally, I trust them more than I do Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. Trust me.

Heard this one on tv…hilarious!
Its so hot, I actually look forward to my refrigerated eye drops.
My thoughts right now on Mitt Romney and his campaign to win the presidency? If he wants to really win, he has to do one thing and one thing only!
And that is to just pound the hell out of obama and his jobs/economy record! That’s it, nothing else.
Don’t fall into the trap of the liberal media and discuss and talk about obamacare! Just quit talking about it.
Move the discussion, the interview, over to that one thing: America, you are jobless and the economy is going nowhere because of obama and his regime!
“It took a few seconds to figure out exactly what we were looking at. A white S.U.V. traveling along a highway adjacent to the base came into the cross hairs in the center of the screen and was tracked as it headed south along the desert road. When the S.U.V. drove out of the picture, the drone began following another car.
Now this man is a good actor, and like all actors and actresses, should stay the heck out of anything political.
Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman appeared on NPR’s Tell Me More on Thursday to help promote two of his upcoming films, The Dark Knight Rises and The Magic of Belle Isle. The discussion with host Michael Martin took a political turn, and Freeman offered his thoughts on President Barack Obama and the racial qualifications of a black President:
“First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him…they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America. There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America’s first black president hasn’t arisen yet. He’s not America’s first black president — he’s America’s first mixed-race president.”
However, Freeman went on to say that he thinks President Obama has been unfairly treated by his political opponents since taking office, and criticized the Republican Party for being uncooperative during his first term.
This is scary stuff people, and shows you how our government is preparing our military to shoot first and ask questions later against citizens of our country! Yes, the power hungry bastards in our government know that more and more every day that people are freaking fed up with them! And those bastards want to make sure they keep their power at all costs!
Complaining about the heat? Then read this, and be grateful for what you have!
