Meanwhile -- In China

The Mainstream Media in the US can only concentrate on one thing at a time. Whether it's an armed robber, killed by law enforcement or it's American forces bombing empty buildings at night to spare the lives of Muslims -- only one thing. 

Have you heard about the 21 September riots in Western China? Likely not, which is why you check this blog from time to time (I hope).  Western China is populated to a great extent by Uighurs, many of whom practice Falun Gong. Most of those who don't practice the religion of Falun Gong (outlawed in China), are members of the Religion of Peace - they're Muslims.

Today, Chinese media reported a significant upward revision to the number of casualties in the 21 September riots and explosions in Luntai County in western China. State media reported 40 "rioters", six civilians and four policemen killed. The bombs injured 54 people. Police captured two rioters.

Earlier in the week, state news services reported only two people killed. The significance of the numbers is that they expose a more serious breach of local security than authorities were willing to admit at first. Chinese security officials do not seem to appreciate that the bombers are a manifestation of what appears to be a large and durable living system that protects and supports Uighur militants and is viscerally hostile to the Han Chinese. The Chinese security agencies know about the hostility, to be sure, but they do not seem to approach it as the output of a robust living system. They prefer arrests and cracking the heads of minorities, whom they judge to be inferior.

China's supreme court distributed new wide-ranging guidelines for prosecuting terrorism cases. Xinhua reported that making and displaying banners and other materials of "religious extremism" is criminalized. It also criminalized insults, such as calling a person a "religious traitor" or a "heretic."

Western China has been a powder keg for quite some time now. Most of the police officers who are murdered in China each year are posted in that region. Now, the locals are even more restless.


Woman beheaded in Oklahoma; Update: Assailant reportedly tried to convert co-workers to Islam; Update: FBI investigating, victims identified; Update: Suspect identified as 30-year-old Alton Nolen; Update: Police praise company CEO who shot Nolen

That's the religion of peace, at it again. Convert or be beheaded. Apparently the woman/victim didn't want to become a Muslim and Alton Nolen's second wife. Based on the Quran and Sharia, he had every right to behead her (she's an infidel - no rights under Quranic Law).

Eric Holder's Political Horizon

It's not a secret that controversial US Attorney General Eric Holder is stepping down from his government post. Taking a clue from Presidential hopeful, former First Lady Hillary R. Clinton, he plans to join with New York politician and former Congressman Anthony Weiner in a run for the White House.

When asked if he felt that he could fill Vice President Joe Biden's shoes, Holder replied, "My wingtips are the same size as his." We at Virtual Mirage take that to mean that he's going to try to do as good of a job as Anthony Weiner's vice president as Joe Biden did for Barack Obama. It's a tall order, but Holder would seem to be the man for the job.

Huma and Anthony Weiner
(the first couple?)
Presidential hopeful, Anthony Weiner's wife, Huma Weiner (Yes, that's her name. You can't make this stuff up.) has decided to jump from Hillary Clinton's personal staff to take her place at her husband's side. This has prompted insiders to question whether Mrs. Clinton's run for the presidency is serious or whether she is simply a shill for the Weiner/Holder ticket.

Weiner/Holder will make Climate Disruption (no longer global warming, global cooling or climate change) their priority in a world made safe by the previous administration, which included Eric Holder.

Pundits and Washington insiders agree that adding the former Attorney General (a negro) to Anthony Weiner's ticket is pure genius. If they win, Eric Holder will be the first black vice president in American history. Many feel that it's the race card and breaking the glass ceiling that will lure many including younger voters to stick with the Democratic Party - a proven winner.

When people ask you who you favor for the highest office in the land, tell them you're all in for Weiner - Holder. Who else can honestly promise to carry on everything that Barack has done for you? Who else is worthy of the American Presidency after Obama set his two-term record?
