Today’s Crime Outrage. 93 year old woman raped by 17 year old thug.


Nice name, Dude.

From the Daily Mail:

A 17-year-old boy has been charged with rape following a sickening assault on a 93-year-old woman.
Iquise Taylor of Anderson, Indiana, was charged as an adult on Monday after the July 16 attack on Amelia Rudolf at her home.

IN Rape Victim

Here’s the 93 year old woman he allegedly raped.


Woman Calls 911, But Is Choked and Raped Anyway. Dispatcher Had Said, “So Sorry. No Cops Here”

From the UK Daily Mail:

A terrified woman from Josephine County, Oregon, dialed 911 to report that her violent ex-boyfriend is trying to break into her home, but in response she was told that there are no officers on duty to help her.

The cash-strapped sheriff’s department in the county had been forced to lay off 23 of its 29 deputies after losing millions in federal aid. The remaining six officers had their shifts slashed to eight hours Monday through Friday.

Unfortunately for the woman faced with an out-of-control jilted lover, her 911 call came on a Saturday.

Eventually, the crazed man forced his way into the house, choked his former girlfriend and raped her without no one there to stop him.

The suspect, Michael Bellah, was later arrested and pleaded guilty to kidnapping, assault and sex abuse.

This horrible crime happened last August, and now, in time honored fashion, liberals, and by that I mean the media, are blaming–wait for it–the fact that people in this county don’t pay enough taxes. Also from the Daily Mail story:

The details of her horrific ordeal last August emerged on Tuesday after voters in Josephine and Curry counties with the lowest property taxes in the state turned down tax increases that would have increased the number of officers on the force.

Even if the county residents were to approve the levy, which would have raised taxes from 59 cents to $1.48 per $1,000 of property value for the next three years, it would have been too late for one local woman.

Of course, as you well know, when seconds count, the police arrive in minutes, and I have a better idea. This post from Susan Callaway, The Man I Might Have Killed, will shed some light on that.

When it Comes to Women’s Rights, the Guy Barack Obama Supports Makes Todd Akin Look Like a Feminist

Do Sandra Fluke and Lena Dunham know about this?

As we discussed on yesterday’s show with our guest Daniel Greenfield of Sultan Knish, if you’re paying attention, you’ll notice a disturbing pattern in the way that the Obama administration deals with the turmoil in the Middle East. Bottom Line: The One sides with the Islamists. Consider Libya and Egypt. In both countries, the Obama administration kicked allies to the curb to help install Islamist regimes. Iran in June, 2009 was another story. In that case, Barack Obama didn’t want “to be seen as meddling” in another country’s affairs.

It’s indisputable that Obama is on the side of the Islamists. If his foreign policy decisions were not evidence enough, he wrote in his silly, boring, navel-gazing book, The Audacity of Hope, “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” I guess that the bright side is that, for once, he’s keeping a promise.

I picture B. Hussein watching Egyptian President, the Muslim Brotherhood’s own, Mohamed Morsi, deciding that he can dispense with the other two branches of government because he is effectively God, and thinking “That’s what I’m talking about!”

So, it’s no surprise that Barack is a Morsi fan, but I wonder if some of Barry’s biggest boosters, Lena Dunham and Sandra Fluke, and others of their ilk, know that their guy is supporting a regime that finds it intolerable to include a provision in its new constitution that prohibits child marriage and sex slavery. That’s Egypt today. From the British site, Inter Press Service:

An ultraconservative Salafi cleric recently sparked outrage among Egypt’s liberal circles when he attempted to justify his opposition to a proposed constitutional article that would outlaw the trafficking of women for sex.

Speaking on privately-owned Al-Nas satellite channel, Sheikh Mohamed Saad El-Azhary said he feared the proposed article could conflict with the local practice of child marriage. He explained that in Egypt, particularly in rural areas, there is a culture of marrying off girls as soon as they hit puberty.

“The important thing is that the girl is ready and can tolerate marriage,” El-Azhary declared.

He goes on to warn of just how far it could go if this radical, anti-child marriage provision is allowed to go forward.

He went on to protest proposed laws protecting women from violence, warning that if allowed to pass husbands could be prosecuted for beating their child brides or forcing themselves upon them.

“If you have intercourse with your wife against her will, she will be able to file a complaint against you,” he said. “That’s where things are headed.”

What’s next? Women driving? Leaving the house without the permission of a male relative? By the way, this guy is part of the group writing the new Egyptian constitution.

One of the great things about being a liberal is the ability to operate with a high degree of self-righteousness, free of any concern that the positions that you passionately defend are irreconcilably conflicting. You can be a feminist who wants freedom and choice for women, who should be seen as strong and independent, except that they expect someone else to pay for their contraceptives, and you can support a guy for president who endorses an Egyptian regime that doesn’t consider it a “legitimate rape” when a man forces himself on his wife.

No wonder liberalism is so popular among the intellectually lazy and/or challenged.

Also: Women’s equality absent from Egyptian constitution

Rep. Akin, This is No Time for Ego. It’s Time to Say Goodbye.

Those who know me well will vouch for the fact that I am not a fan of unsolicited advice. If there’s one thing I never want to be it’s what we lawyers call “the officious intermeddler,” what regular people would call someone who hasn’t learned to mind his own business. I also despise the knee-jerk impulse by most politicians to scatter like cockroaches whenever a colleague steps in it. So, I haven’t said much about the Ted Akin “legitimate rape” fiasco that started Sunday. And some of you said I’d never have anything in common with Bill Clinton. He is one of the few politicians who hasn’t weighed in on this issue. I can’t imagine why not …

Is it just me, or should an alleged grownup in a responsible position think twice before uttering the phrase “legitimate rape?” Dude, we know you meant “forcible rape,” as a way of distinguishing it from the idiotic notion, invented and perpetuated by liberals, of “date rape,” but that’s not what you said, and as I am fond of saying, words mean things. Frankly, the older I get, the less tolerance I have for stupid, and this comment was just that. Don’t we have enough stupid in Washington as it is? Of course we do!

It’s unquestionable that Rep. Akin, for the good of the country, should step aside. All his support, including that crucial financial support, has dried up. Karl Roves’ super PAC, Crossroads GPS and the National Republican Senatorial Committee have announced that as long as Rep. Akin is the candidate, they won’t spend a dime on this race. Plus, the polls showing Akin still ahead are pure agit-prop baloney, with a sample skewed to make it look like this guy isn’t box office poison. He is.

Perhaps we need some help from Mama Grizzly #1, who endorsed one of Akin’s primary opponents, former state Treasurer Sarah Steelman, right before the August 7 election. Governor Palin, please see what you can do to make this right. As you know, there’s way too much at stake to potentially lose this race. Nothing less than the future of America is on the ballot on November 6.

Rep. Akin, staying in the race doesn’t make you courageous. It makes you stubborn and egotistical. If you do the right thing, you could live to fight another day. If you don’t, you could go down in history as the guy who cost America the Senate.

Joe Biden’s Rape Fantasy

Vice President Joe Biden’s latest unintentional standup comedy routine, this time featuring a hypothetical rape scenario brought on by our failure to throw more money down the democrats’ income redistribution rathole, and who doesn’t think that’s a laugh riot, after all, shines a bright light on what has been increasingly obvious over the last several years. No, not the fact that the former plagiarist/frequent shoe chewing politician needs to talk to his doctor about upping the doses of whichever psyche meds we can only hope that he’s on, although there is that. What is on prominent display, once again, is this administration’s disconnection from reality.

Like many delusional types, apparently Biden doesn’t realize how bizarre his comments sound to those of us who, unlike most Obama supporters, have the ability to reason our way out of a paper bag. Consider that we have an administration that is overtly hostile to our 2nd amendment rights, so much so that they are now mired in the web of deceit they constructed to cover up Fast and Furious. Now liberals, who incessantly bleat about the right wing’s use of the “politics of fear,” are invoking scenarios in which the people they strive to disarm will be victims of violent crimes, unless those same taxpaying people give them more of their money. I guess you can give them credit for creative, albeit, dopey, and nonsensical new theories of extortion. Let me speak slowly. You see, Joe, for extortion to actually create fear in the potential victims, the threat must actually make sense. Which is a greater threat, being disarmed by Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Eric Holder, Dick Durbin and the rest of this passel of gun grabbing megalomaniacs or the inability of states to avoid the consequences of profligate spending by keeping union bureaucrats, not cops on the street, on the job? Perhaps we should ask the crime victim in this story:

Accused Rapist Shot, Killed by Victim

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - No charges will be filed against the Cape Girardeau woman who shot and killed a registered sex offender trying to break back into her home.

Ronnie Preyer, 47, of Jackson died seven hours after being shot in the chest.

Cape Girardeau County prosecuting attorney Morley Swingle tells Heartland News that Preyer is the same man who raped the 57-year-old woman on Saturday, October 25th.

Swingle says she shot Preyer as he broke through her basement door into her kitchen around 2:15 Halloween morning.

Swingle says he will not charge the woman with any crime.

Cape County Coroner John Clifton says he agrees with Mr. Swingle and plans to rule Preyer’s death a justifiable homicide.

Or the woman described in this story, who shot a would-be rapist.

The jury is in. Criminals don’t obey the liberals’ inane, anti-freedom gun laws. Why? MMM …let’s see … could it be because THEY ARE CRIMINALS? These laws make the law-abiding less safe. For their proponents to raise the specter of increased crime is like Kei$ha lamenting the coarsening of the culture.

If Joe Biden is concerned about women potentially being rape victims, the answer is not raising taxes on hard-working citizens so that he and Barry can shovel more loot into the coffers of their public employee union cronies, a scenario in which the only ones getting raped are the taxpayers.
