Blue Monday Open Thread

With all of the unpleasant news in the past day, here’s a video for the occasion, and a look back at a simpler time.

Yes, Monday is a mess!

Tehran Infiltrates U.S. Congress!

Read an interesting post at Gateway Pundit, concerning an article posted in FrontPage magazine this morning.
According to this lengthy article, with lengthy links to articles on former Rep. Bob Ney(R), Roy Coffee, and the names of the actors involved in assisting the Mad Mullahs to gain access to the offices, and activites of our Congress.
Here is the summation of the article:

Trita Parsi, Namazi and their backers fully intended to infiltrate the US Congress. One of the methods they boast of involves recruiting young Iranian Americans to serve as Congressional interns or pages by offering room, board and financial incentives. NIAC’s website brags of success stories in this venture.
Since the early 1990’s, Tehran has embarked on developing a sophisticated lobbying enterprise in the United States. Iran’s government has devoted significant manpower and financial resources to this cause. This lobbying enterprise consists of a complex, intermingled web of entities and organizations with significant overlap of leadership, and heavy involvement of the notoriously mafia-like inner circles of the Iranian regime. Disguised as scholars, many of the former Iranian government officials reside in the US and constitute an important piece of the lobby machine. NIAC and its major figures, such as Bob Ney and Trita Parsi are effective nodes of Tehran’s efforts to manipulate US policy toward self-serving ends.

I highly recommend reading the above links, and remember the names of the individuals involved. In particular, be mindful of the media spokes people, that speak for the National Iranian-American Council, and know what their agenda truly is.

As for the four Americans involved in assisting this organization in their aims, I am reminded of a poem by Robert Burns.
Such A Parcel Of Rogues In A Nation:

Fareweel to a’ our Scottish fame,
Fareweel our ancient glory;
Fareweel ev’n to the Scottish name,
Sae fam’d in martial story.
Now Sark rins over Solway sands,
An’ Tweed rins to the ocean,
To mark where England’s province stands-
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

What force or guile could not subdue,
Thro’ many warlike ages,
Is wrought now by a coward few,
For hireling traitor’s wages.
The English stell we could disdain,
Secure in valour’s station;
But English gold has been our bane-
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

O would, or I had seen the day
That Treason thus could sell us,
My auld grey head had lien in clay,
Wi’ Bruce and loyal Wallace!
But pith and power, till my last hour,
I’ll mak this declaration;
We’re bought and sold for English gold-
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

Adding insult to injury….


There was a hat tip to the Sweetness and Light blog on the original that got cut off (along with the vimto sig) by a gremlin.

Glad to be able to sort it out: here’s the link to a very good story!
