Video Awesomeness: Texas Senate candidate Ted Cruz on Operation Fast and Furious

There are four Republican Senatorial candidates vying for the seat of outgoing Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison. At this point, it appears to be a two man race between Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, whose rhetoric is much more conservative than his record and Ted Cruz, a Tea Party favorite. Cruz has a legitimate shot, despite Dewhurst's establishment connections.

If you're outraged by the Fast and Furious scandal, you've got to see this ad from Ted Cruz for Senate:

Marine Squadron dons Crusader logo; Leftists freak out

The good news is that whenever leftist groups freak out about something,  you're usually on the right track by continuing the practice. In this case, the Marines have revived the Red Cross of the Knights Templar (Crusaders). The left's argument? It will provoke Jihadists.

h/t WZ, Via MSNBC:
A recent decision by the Marine Corps to reinstate "Crusaders" as the name of its Fighter Attack Squadron 122 — replacing "Werewolves" — and adopting the red cross of the medieval Knights Templar was blasted as unconstitutional and willfully ignorant by a civil rights group Wednesday.

“I don’t know that the Marine Corps could do anything more to fuel the cause of jihad," said Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, a nonprofit organization that advocates church-state separation. "It will directly end up taking lives and maiming members of our military."

VMFA-122 based out of Beaufort, S.C., used the Crusaders symbol from 1958 up to 2008, when Lt. Col. William Lieblein pointed out that imagery invoking the Christian conquest and colonization of Muslims during the Middle Ages was counterproductive to U.S. soldiers based across the Arab and Islamic world.
Of course, don't Muslim groups love it when the left does its bidding? It sounds like someone is afflicted with Stockholm Syndrome.
Lt. Cmdr. Wade Weigel, who currently heads the squadron, said he did not think the historic nickname was problematic, according to a report in the Beaufort Gazette on Monday.

"It's a way for our Marines to draw on the service of the Marines before them, and to make their own history under the same name," Weigel told the paper. "As the squadron prepared to celebrate its (70th anniversary), my intent was to return the squadron to the Crusader name since 50 of the squadron's 70 years were under that name. The name change is a reflection of our heritage."

Through the law firm Jones Day, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation on Wednesday sent a letter calling on top Navy and Marine Corps brass to reverse the decision, arguing that the use of Crusaders and the accompanying symbolism violate the Constitution’s separation of church and state, and threatening legal action if it is not changed.
The Crusades have gotten a bad rap for far too long. In fact, the last of them was vastly outnumbered by the Ottoman Turks at the battle of Malta in 1565 and likely prevented Islam's conquest of Europe.

Camel Urine: Middle Eastern Craze

The Muslim world appears to have itself in a bizarre conundrum. According to the prophet of Islam, there is great medicinal value in the consumption of camel urine so followers of Islam would be foolish not to drink it according to their own Holy writ. However, according to Walid Shoebat, who has translated a significant bit of Arabic on the subject, some Muslim doctors are admitting that it is not at all healthy. In fact, it contains significant amounts of uric acid, which can be quite damaging.

Nonetheless, that doesn't seem to be preventing the Arab world from marketing the product. Even CNN's Arabic channel is promoting it.

Via Shoebat:
“A mouthful a day” is supposed to keep the doctor away, reports CNN in Arabic, under “Health and Technology.” You can take it straight up, fill up direct from the source, in capsule form – just like you would with fish oil, massage it into your hair or apply it directly to your face. There are even conferences on the “wonders and secrets of healing from camel urine,” that “camel urine is the miracle of our time and is a gift from Muhammad to mankind.”

Fatin Khorshid, of the King Fahd Medical Research Center sees it as the ultimate solution to “all sorts of ailments” like “cancer,” “digestive tract,” “diarrhea,” “sexual dysfunction,” “liver disease,” “skin ulcers,” “cosmetics,” etc.

In an effort to further promote its medicinal value in the fight against cancer worldwide, professor Khorshid has also applied for a swath of international patents. The US application, which covers “an absolutely novel use of camel urine,” focuses on PM701 (the “PM” stands for “Prophet Medicine”), obtained from the adult single-humped Arabian camel (Camelus dromedarius) found roaming natural pastures near Jeddah. ‘Separation and formulation of bioactive fraction and sub-fraction from camel urine work as anticancer agent.’ (US patent app. 2009/0297622 A1)

PM701 (the “PM” stands for “Prophet Medicine”) Amazingly, no one in the Muslim world is insulted by applying camel urine to the prophet of Islam. One seminar (starting at 1:52 mark) is given on how to gather it by poking the female camel to stimulate the urination.
