Yorkshire´s Batman stuns officers in
Bradford as he brings wanted
man into police station

Telegraph [UK], by Jean-Paul Ford Rojas

Original Article

On film, Batman’s rippling muscles and state-of-the-art weaponry strike fear into the hearts of Gotham City’s most terrifying villains. But in Bradford, a new incarnation of the caped crusader has been fighting crime despite a slightly less impressive physique. The mystery vigilante dragged a wanted man by the scruff of the neck into a city centre police station where he handed him over to officers and told them: “I’ve caught this one for you.” Dressed in a grey superhero outfit that was more joke shop than Hollywood, the “bizarre” incident was captured on CCTV last week. His paunch

Comments:
This will be no surprise to most Britons. The residents of the county where I was brought up are famous for their silly sense of humor.

University charity fundraising day. Council workmen digging up the street outside Sheffield University. Group of students find police officer and say "students dressed as workmen are digging up street." At same time workmen are told some students dressed as police will come along and tell them to stop digging. . . Students with tins collected much money from those watching the resulting mayhem.

As a governing system becomes more oppressive the quality of humor improves.

Humor is the outlet for those internal conflicts which would otherwise require us to take drastic and even violent action to remedy.

I propose that all forms of humor be abolished until we rid our country of it´s current insufferable tyrants.

It´s NOT FUNNY.

OK.....it´s a little bit funny.

New Iranian President says U.S.

Iran´s new president Hasan Rouhani has accused the United States of seeking an excuse to confront the country over its nuclear programme. The new leader reportedly made the claim during a meeting with North Korean official Kim Yong Nam, who is in the Iranian capital Tehran to see Mr Rouhani´s inauguration. According to Iranian state TV, the president said: ´We believe the United States and the Westerners are seeking an excuse to confront the countries that they do not consider friends.´ The West suspects Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons programme, a charge which Iran denies.

The U.S. State Department has extended the closure orders for 19 embassies and consulates across the Middle East and Africa for a week--amid fears of a ´strategically significant´ terrorist attack against Western interests. Officials are offering few details about the threat from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the arm of the terrorist organization that is based in Yemen, but at least one report indicates it could involve a terrorist attack mounted by people with explosives surgically-implanted inside them--bombs capable of passing undetected through airport security. On Sunday, Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia said ´the chatter´ intercepted by

Almost unnoticed, Iraq is toppling into civil war, yet again. Here are a few sentences plucked at random from an Al Jazeera article published this Saturday: “Bombings and shootings across Iraq have killed at least 19 people, including an ambush that targeted a convoy carrying a top military commander, authorities said … Gunmen also broke into the house of a former fighter of an anti-al-Qaeda group known as Sahwa, killing the man´s wife and two daughters near the city of Baqouba [Snip] You get the picture.

Survivors of the Fort Hood massacre are suing the U.S. government for allowing a jihadist soldier to rise through the ranks unchecked because of ´political correctness´. Major Nidal Hasan, 42, is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder for after launching an attack at the Texas Army post in November 2009. And on the eve of his trial, which is due to get underway on Tuesday, 148 victims and their relatives are launching a legal claim against the government for $750million (£491 million) for failing to prevent the killings from happening.

A picture has emerged showing NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden grinning from ear to ear as he left Moscow airport on Thursday, after more than a month stranded at the terminal.

Chuck E. Cheese restaurants have been popular spots for kids´ birthday parties for decades. These days, however, the restaurants are a pretty popular spot to throw up your dukes, too, as a series of large brawls between the adults accompanying children has given the chain a bit of a black eye in the PR department. Just last week, two women were arrested following a brawl at a Chuck E. Cheese that involved more than 20 people. That same location has seen more than 80 emergency calls to 9-1-1 in less than two years. A few eeks earlier, a fight broke

For an organisation that is said to be in terminal decline, al-Qaeda will draw immense satisfaction from the events of this past weekend, when it demonstrated its ability to disrupt the work of Western governments by forcing the temporary closure of dozens of diplomatic missions throughout the Arab world. While it is unclear what kind of threat prompted the US government to initiate such radical measures, or the Foreign Office to shut the British mission to Yemen, American intelligence officials are convinced that al-Qaeda is planning a spectacular attack to mark the festival of Eid, which comes at the

Islamist militants set off several explosions in the Somali capital on Sunday, their spokesman said, demonstrating the rebels´ ability to attack the heart of government-controlled areas despite security gains. The guerilla-style attacks were typical of al Shabaab rebels who have waged a six-year campaign to impose their strict interpretation of Islamic law on the country. [Snip] "We started a massive military operation across Mogadishu at dusk. It will go on until tomorrow morning," said rebel spokesman Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, promising more attacks over the next few days as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan ends.

The US decision to close its diplomatic missions in the Middle East was prompted by the interception of high-ranking al-Qaeda operatives signalling a major attack, according to politicians. [Snip] An unnamed US official, cited by ABC news, said there was concern that al-Qaeda might deploy suicide attackers with surgically implanted bombs to evade security.

The West was braced for attacks by al-Qaeda´s Yemen branch in apparent retaliation for the deaths of high level terrorist leaders by a series of devastatingly effective drone strikes. President Barack Obama vowed that "all appropriate steps" be taken to protect Americans after the US issued a worldwide travel alert and ordered its embassies across the Islamic world to close temporarily.[Snip] Intercepted communications between Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leaders point to advanced planning of a terrorist attack in the region that could take place between today and the end of the holy month of Ramadan on Thursday

An American diplomat who police say was speeding, crossed the center line in his SUV and rammed into a full mini-bus, killing a father of three whose widow is six months pregnant, officials said Friday. U.S. Embassy officials in Nairobi rushed Joshua Walde and his family out of Kenya the next day, leaving the crash victims with no financial assistance to pay for a funeral and for hospital bills for the eight or so others who were seriously injured. Amongst those killed was Haji Lukindo, who leaves behind his pregnant wife Latifah Naiman Mariki, 38, without a source of income

White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu

In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes

Several skills that every kid once learned in school are going the way of the dodo in a hurry. Diagramming sentences is practically an extinct art, for example. Cursive handwriting and memorized multiplication tables look to be swiftly headed that way. Apparently, the next thing that kids will no longer need to learn is spelling and grammar. Sugata Mitra, a professor of educational technology at Newcastle University in northeast England, announced that traditional language rules are out of fashion, reports the Daily Mail. Kids don’t need to waste time on those things, see. State-of-the-art computers and mobile phones can make

Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man. When John Wrana was a young man, fit and strong and fighting in World War II with the U.S. Army Air Corps, did he ever think he´d end this way? Just a few weeks shy of his 96th birthday, in need of a walker to move about, cops coming through the door of his retirement home with a Taser and a shotgun.

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.
