New Zealand Judge Throws Out Case Against Dead Man
[An Nahar] A New Zealand judge on Thursday threw out an attempt to prosecute a dead South Korean fisherman, comparing the case to a Monty Python sketch, reports said.

Trawler officers Soon Ill Hwang and Dae Jun Lee were accused in Christchurch District Court of illegally dumping dead fish at sea in a case brought by the Ministry for Primary Industries, the New Zealand Herald reported.

some people are alive only because it's illegal to kill them...
shortly after charges were laid against him earlier this year, Soon was killed in a car crash and may not have been aware that he was facing legal proceedings, a lawyer for his estate told the court.

Unperturbed by the death of the fisherman, a solicitor representing the ministry reportedly told the court there were still valid reasons for the prosecution to go ahead -- although judge Gary MacAskill rejected the argument as "absurd".

"It reminds me of Monty Python and his dead parrot," Fairfax Media quoted the judge as saying, referring to the well-known comedy sketch.

"I would have thought that the death of the accused is pretty fundamental."

"We can't try dead people," he reportedly said, sarcastically suggesting that the only way to obtain evidence from the accused would be through a seance.

The case against Soon's co-accused Dae, relating to dumping fish and making false fisheries returns, is proceeding. He has indicated he will defend the charges.

Egypt prosecutor-general restores disputed land to Coptic church
[al Ahram] Egyptian Prosecutor-General Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud officially restored possession of a parcel of land owned by Egypt's Coptic Orthodox Church in Cairo's Shubra Al-Kheima district to Bishop Morcos, Coptic Bishop of Shubra Al-Kheima, after the land was briefly occupied by Salafist Mohammedans earlier this week.

After entering the land illegally on Monday, a group of Salafists
...Salafists are ostentatiously devout Moslems who figure the ostentation of their piety gives them the right to tell others how to do it and to kill those who don't listen to them...
erected a sign bearing the words 'Al-Rahma Mosque' and performed Islamic prayers on the premises.

The Salafists only left when church authorities informed the interior ministry of the incident. Security forces took down the sign on Tuesday morning.

Subject to disputes between Mohammedans and Coptic-Christians, the land in question was formally restored to the latter after investigations by the prosecutor-general's office confirmed Bishop Morcos' ownership of the land.

Mahmoud also ordered police to adopt any security measures necessary to protect the disputed land.

In a statement to Al-Ahram's Arabic-language news website, Bishop Marcos expressed his gratitude to Mahmoud for the latter's swift response to the incident, saying the prosecutor-general's actions indicated his impartiality.

On Tuesday, the Egyptian Coptic Coalition issued a statement holding President Mohamed Morsi responsible for the episode and urging him to impose harsher punishments for such incidents. The group also called for an investigation into Monday's episode.

In an earlier statement, Egypt's Maspero Copts Youth United also denounced the incident, attributing it to the state's failure to respond to earlier outbreaks of sectarian violence, including the burning of Christian churches in the wake of last year's Tahrir Square uprising.

#1  If I remember right, there was a game of 'winners & losers' 60 or 70 years ago. The losers were some 400 unfederated clusters of primitives who have been fed and watered by their neighbors since then. Something like pets.

Maybe I got the story wrong. Winners write history, right?

Any bets on how they'll get him? Corruption charges? Sex scandal? Car bomb?

Stocks head for third day of declines
Following the re-election of President Obama earlier this week, U.S. stocks have fallen sharply as investor shift their attention to the looming fiscal cliff, and the potential consequences for the U.S. and global economies if Congress fails to avert it.

U.S. stock futures were lower Friday, as disappointing corporate results weighed on sentiment, setting the market up for a third straight day of declines.

The Mass Firings Begin
Obama was "fired up" and so were the voters, and so now, the mass firings begin. Here's a collection of today's headlines. Please say a prayer for the families who will be suffering. Had Romney won, many of these companies would now be hiring.

#3  I saw other companies on another list, many were the same though. Probably they had this in the works for a while but were just trying to hold out against hope for the election. I think the Author is correct, if Romney had won they would have tried to tough it out. As it is, they are just throwing their hands up.

BREAKING: David Petraeus resigns from CIA
Update: 3:30 CST
Petraeus Won’t Testify About Benghazi Attacks Now

CBS’ Mark Knoller tweets that “Senate Intelligence Committee says Petraeus will not testify at next week’s closed hearing on the events in Benghazi.”

Perhaps there is some protocol I’m unaware of, but I don’t see why resigning should affect whether Petraeus testifies or not. He was in charge of the CIA when the Benghazi attack occurred, and the CIA has been under plenty of fire for how the attack was handled.

Will update as more comes in
NBC reported Friday that CIA director David Petraeus has resigned from the CIA, citing an extramarital affair.

NBC's Andrea Mitchell said the resignation was submitted in a letter dated Friday and was accepted by the White House.

In a letter, Petraeus noted that he had been married for 37 years and had exercised "extremely poor judgment' in conducting an extramarital affair.

Petraues took over as head of the CIA in September of 2011 following his tour as head of allied forces in Afghanistan.
The move comes amid the unfolding controversy surrounding the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya. Scrutiny has fallen on a range of agencies including the CIA. But Petraeus, in his resignation message, cited strictly "personal reasons" surrounding his affair which until now had not been disclosed.
NBC has the resignation letter and this, for those who follow such things:
Mike Morrell, the deputy CIA director and a long time CIA officer, will likely be offered the job as acting director, multiple sources told NBC News.

The letter in full:

Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House and asked the President to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position as D/CIA. After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation.

As I depart Langley, I want you to know that it has been the greatest of privileges to have served with you, the officers of our Nation's Silent Service, a work force that is truly exceptional in every regard. Indeed, you did extraordinary work on a host of critical missions during my time as director, and I am deeply grateful to you for that.

Teddy Roosevelt once observed that life's greatest gift is the opportunity to work hard at work worth doing. I will always treasure my opportunity to have done that with you and I will always regret the circumstances that brought that work with you to an end.

Thank you for your extraordinary service to our country, and best wishes for continued success in the important endeavors that lie ahead for our country and our Agency.

With admiration and appreciation,

David H. Petraeus

#4  Why would his boss care about an extramarital affair?

Because it was with a woman?

#5  He had discovered he was sleeping with a woman more lethal and deadly than any other. His affair was with the Obama lie. He could no longer deceive his family and his country and in an effort to clense his soul he stepped up and did the honorable thing. Now he is home with the truth...

#8  Why would the Democrats care about an extra-marital affair? Clinton had many extra-marital affairs and is well-liked by Democrats. The Kennedy's actively pursued their libidos and more than a few women.

So what's this all about?

#12  Totally wild speculation follows.

He was caught in a honey pot operation designed to keep him in line. He was a weak link, had some vestiges of morality. Resignation may be his escape route.

Wilder speculation; Obama's buddy Vlad helping out so he gets what he wants.

Have fun with this idea.

#16  At least he wasn't found in Fort Marcy Park...
Posted by: Pappy || 11/09/2012 16:44 Comments || Top||

#17  Well this bums me out. I considered Petraeus a great American. I was hoping for him to help provide sanity to the government.

The big question is was he threatened with political blackmail. And his FU! was to resign instead?

I'm hoping he starts hitting the talk shows so we can really know what's going on.

It's probably true he probably did commit adultery. My bet it's either a woman he has worked very closely with or some manipulative sociopath (who is probably pretty hot)

I just hope we don't see pictures in the U.K. Daily Mail.

#24  Shocker but what I feared most about a second term! Petraeus was the one expected to stay, one of the few capable in the admin, with Geithner (good riddance), Hillary, Panetta, and several others expected to go, leaving only Commies and Islamists and NBPs in control. With globalist leftards gutting the Constitution and signing UN treaties, surrendering our sovereignty as a nation, we're all screwed by King Obama, an impotent Congress, and ignorant populace. We won't survive four more years and any hope I had has been snuffed out. Petraeus was honorable and competent and now we are stuck with an incompetent amateur that can't do 7th grade math, Jarrett, Holder, Reid and Pelosi. Yep, I'm still pouting over the election and gonna go out and eat worms.

Lockheed Martin Exec Who Followed Admin Lead on WARN Act Resigns Due to Affair

Posted by: Uncle Phester || 11/09/2012 18:58 Comments || Top||

#31  Before I repeat the comment below - let me say that it took David Petraeus a lot of personal courage to jcome right out with this public admission. That's a tough one to live thru. He deserves some respect for that - although the pain in his relationships will be considerable.

And now I will repeat a comment from a Yahoo reader on this topic ...

Well, if he couldn't even keep a secret from his wife - does he really belong at the top of the CIA???

#32  The CEO-in-waiting of the defense contractor who declined to issue WARN Act layoff notices on the urging of the Obama administration — sequestration-related notices mandated by law that would have gone out just before the election — has resigned, citing an affair.

#34  This shouldn't help him dodge testifying, it just means Issa has to ask a civilian to testify instead of a General. Otherwise Holder would have pulled that one. Being a non-General might relieve him of some difficulties (or shield some friends or something).

College students chant for 'Karl Marx' and 'socialism' in front of White House
A group of college students chanted "Karl Marx" and "socialism" while celebrating President Obama's electoral victory in front of the White House late Tuesday night, a video shot by Campus Reform reveals.

The raucous group of students chanted "Karl Marx, Karl Marx, Karl Marx," and cited abortion, socialism, and "Obama phones" as reasons for their support of President Obama's second term.

Thousands of college students from across Washington D.C. spontaneously gathered in front of the White House to celebrate President Obama's reelection.

Those students were among thousands from colleges across Washington, D.C. who spontaneously gathered in front of fences around the north lawn of the White House to celebrate President Obama's election victory.
