Glenn Beck Creates Artwork: Piss Obama – UPDATED

28 November, 2012

I seem to recall suggesting this years ago—along with a Crap Obama.    But, hey, I’m not some fancy-schmancy “artist” who gets his funding from the NEA, or something:

UPDATE:  E-BAY removes Glenn Beck’s artwork:

Ebay Yanks Beck’s ‘Obama in Pee Pee’ Art Project Meant to Raise Money for Charity
The Blaze

The popular online auction site eBay has yanked a piece of artwork done by Glenn Beck citing its belief that the project featured an Obama figurine floating in actual urine (it was not, however).

[…]

Beck was auctioning the jar, complete with the Obama doll, on the auction site, with all the proceeds set to go to Beck’s Mercury One charity. At the last entry its bid was up to $11,300. On Wednesday morning, however, eBay removed the auction page.

Below is the letter eBay sent to Beck’s charity eBay page:

Egypt: Christian Anti-Muhammad YouTube Video Makers Sentenced to Death

28 November, 2012

With Obama still trying to distract Americans away from his culpability  in the Benghazi massacre, I wouldn’t be a bit surprised to see him hand the Christians over to his Muzzy buddies in Egypt:

Egyptian Christians sentenced to death for Islam film

(Reuters) – A Cairo court on Wednesday sentenced to death seven Egyptian Christians tried in absentia for participating in an anti-Islam video that was released on the Internet in September and prompted violent protests in Muslim countries.

“The seven accused persons were convicted of insulting the Islamic religion through participating in producing and offering a movie that insults Islam and its prophet,” Judge Saif al-Nasr Soliman said.

The low-budget video, produced privately in California, denigrated the Prophet Mohammad and triggered anti-U.S. protests and attacks on Western embassies around the Muslim world.

The convicted persons included Egyptian-American Nakoula Bassely Nakoula, who is currently serving a one-year-jail term in Los Angeles after an American court convicted him of probation violations that stemmed from his role in the movie.

Graph Obtained by Associated Press Confirms Iran Working on Atomic Bomb

28 November, 2012

Yeah, I’m sure Obama’s sanctions against Iran will deter them from building a nuclear device.  After all, sanctions have always worked in the past when you have fanatics running a country, right?

Iran nuclear bomb? Iranian scientists running simulations on bomb with massive explosive force
via WPTV

VIENNA – Iranian scientists have run computer simulations for a nuclear weapon that would produce more than triple the explosive force of the World War II bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, according to a diagram obtained by The Associated Press.

The diagram was leaked by officials from a country critical of Iran’s atomic program to bolster their arguments that Iran’s nuclear program must be halted before it produces a weapon. The officials provided the diagram only on condition that they and their country not be named.

The International Atomic Energy Agency — the Vienna-based U.N. nuclear watchdog — reported last year that it had obtained diagrams indicating that Iran was calculating the “nuclear explosive yield” of potential weapons. A senior diplomat who is considered neutral on the issue confirmed that the graph obtained by the AP was indeed one of those cited by the IAEA in that report. He spoke only on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the issue.

The IAEA report mentioning the diagrams last year did not give details of what they showed. But the diagram seen by the AP shows a bell curve — with variables of time in micro-seconds, and power and energy both in kilotons — the traditional measurement of the energy output, and hence the destructive power of nuclear weapons. The curve peaks at just above 50 kilotons at around 2 microseconds, reflecting the full force of the weapon being modeled.

The bomb that the United States dropped on Hiroshima in Japan during World War II, in comparison, had a force of about 15 kilotons. Modern nuclear weapons have yields hundreds of times higher than that.

The diagram has a caption in Farsi: “Changes in output and in energy released as a function of time through power pulse.” The number “5” is part of the title, suggesting it is part of a series.
