    rediff.com ^ | February 17, 2004 19:12 IST | Shyam Bhatia in London
    The London accountant who accompanied Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan to Timbuktu on three occasions in 1998, 1999 and 2000 says the 'father' of the Pakistani bomb witnessed the digging of a well, toured an ancient Islamic library and enjoyed the views of the desert. A remote outpost in the middle of the West African desert, Timbuktu usually attracts explorers associated in the popular mind with the adventures of the comic character Tin Tin. And Pakistani dissidents told rediff.com the reason for Khan's visit to Timbuktu, part of landlocked West African state of Mali, was to prospect for uranium. They say...

    Turns out, the language one uses in speeches on the House floor is no small matter. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) today apologized for using what he terms “the m-word” during a speech the previous evening.

    Country Star Calls Obama 'a Muslim' By JILIAN FAMA Aug. 20, 2012 Hank Williams Jr. Tells Crowd Obama Is 'a Muslim' Who 'Hates the Military' Controversial country star Hank Williams Jr., who caused a stir last year when he compared Barack Obama to Hitler, is at it again. At the Iowa State Fair, Williams bashed Obama to a crowd saying, "We've got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!" To make his anti-Obama message known, Williams recently released a 10-disc album titled "Old School, New Rules." There is no subtlety in...

    I'm definitely in MNF dt's. The wife is mad at me the Fox "Terra Nova" sucks. Jack Daniels is my only comfort. (Which might explain why the wife's mad at me but I'm not sure because she won't talk to me.) Now,let's deal with Cain,Romney,Perry and whoever might arise from the mire. Let me cut to the chase. Your next King has been chosen and it is Barack Obama. Back in 2008 I was barraged by calls for Obama. I asked one question. "What qualifies Obama to be President?" I never got an answer to that question. One poor bastard...

  • Broadcast Sports Declares Robust Debate Out Of Bounds

    10/05/2011 3:41:09 PM PDT · by Morgana · 3 replies
    It seems that the only stereotypical male behavior broadcast sports won't put up with is free thought and the speaking of one's mind. For example, Hank Williams Jr. --- a number of whose own songs revel proudly in bawdy behavior such as boozing and smoking --- has been removed from the opening sequence of Monday Night Football for comparing Obama to Hitler. This reprisal will certainly go a long way in laying to rest the old canard about Jews controlling the media. In a number of ways, Obama is like Hitler. Both men would have liked to have seen the...

    Hank Williams Jr., the singer whose various videos for the hit song "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night" has served as the intro to "Monday Night Football" for 23 seasons, compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler during a Monday morning appearance on "Fox and Friends." The statement led to ESPN pulling his popular intro segment, best known to fans for its "Are you ready for some football?" ending, for Monday night's game between the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. During a discussion on the 2012 presidential race, Williams began discussing Obama's golf outing with Speaker...

    Hank Williams, Jr., the voice famous for asking millions of football fans whether they’re ready for some football, has been pulled from tonight’s broadcast of “Monday Night Football” over a comment he made on Fox News this morning. Williams, who sings the lead-in song to the game each week, criticized the president for his golf summit with House Speaker John Boehner this summer. “It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu,” Williams told “Fox & Friends.” USA Today, among others, picked up the quote, speculating on whether the comparison would get Williams booted from the broadcast...

    On Monday (June 14), Associated Press reporter Colleen Long wrote two articles about two different criminal cases in New York State, both involving political operatives accused of breaking the law. The first was about "Hank Morris... adviser to former state comptroller Alan Hevesi, [who] has been accused of taking kickbacks and other payments...." The second was about John Haggerty, who is accused of duping New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg into giving him money for campaign expenses and then using the money for personal expenses instead. The story about Morris never mentioned that he was a Democrat political consultant, or...

    According to Representative Hank Johnson, the logical conclusion of yelling “you lie!” at the President during a joint session of congress is a return of the Klu Klux Klan.

    Tonight Fox will run the series finale of King of the Hill, the saga of Hank Hill and his gang of associates living in their exurb paradise of Arlen, Texas.... The beauty of King is that while it pokes fun at Hank’s myriad foibles, it understands the creepy nature of those who dedicate their lives to interfering in the lives of others, always claiming the moral high ground yet inevitably maximizing their own personal power and advantage. From snooty school guidance counselors to pompous college professors to lazy municipal clerks, Hank is constantly beset by nimrods trying to force him...

    Saw Palin in Richmond today (Mon 13 October 2008). Introductory speeches by Jerry Kilgore, Robb Whittman, Jim Gilmore. Other than Palin herself, the highlight was Hank Williams, Jr., singing the National Anthem and then doing a multi-verse rendition of his "Family Tradition" with new campaign lyrics extoling the virtues of John McCain and Sarah Palin. Believe H.W. Jr. was also in Virginia Beach with McCain and Palin in the morning. Big crowd in Richmond VA, out in the grass in a makeshift outdoor theater on the grounds of Richmond International Raceway. Hope video makes it online. Mike B.
  • Hank resumes his reign on Fox’s ‘King of the Hill’

    “I’ll have a normal orange juice, please,” says Hank Hill. “And make it normal.” He wishes! Hank, plaintive hero of Fox’s comedy “King of the Hill,” is joining someone at a dang ol’ prissy juice bar. Not by his choice. This is not Hank’s kind of place. Nor are these his kind of times. Never were. After a decade on the air, “King of the Hill” finds Hank pretty much where he was in January 1997: a Texas good ol’ boy in a world bent on serving up things that, in his mind, just aren’t normal. Hank’s a regular guy...

    APN) ATLANTA -- US Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) is pursuing numerous legal avenues to challenge the so-called “results” of not only her recent Primary and Runoff Elections, but also the fundamental reality that the current E-voting system in Georgia does not provide us with “results” that are in any way meaningful. The Congresswoman and her attorneys and campaign are looking at ways in which they can either join or support Donzella James’s legal election contest filed last week, Donzella James, who is working closely with the Congresswoman, told Atlanta Progressive News. The US Department of Justice is already said to...

    I wrote last week that our InsiderAdvantage/Majority Opinion survey showed that controversial Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney would likely lose her primary runoff election against former county commissioner Hank Johnson in Georgia's 4th District. McKinney lost handily. Beyond that, her final hours before eventually conceding defeat made for the most underreported and bizarre story of a political exit I've ever seen in my years of participating in or analyzing political races around the country. I had agreed to join the anchor desk at Atlanta's NBC-TV affiliate to provide analysis for that day's elections. As the night wore on, it became clear...

    "King of the Hill" (search) creator Mike Judge (search) says this season, the show's 10th, will be its last. "There is an end in sight here," Judge told the Post Wednesday. "I think 10 [seasons] is a good, round number." FOX officially says that "No decisions have been made regarding the future of 'King of the Hill.' " But whatever the show's future, its fans are, no doubt, anticipating the upcoming Sept. 18 season premiere. "The only storyline we have right now is Luanne starts going out with this guy, Lucky. Tom Petty (search) does the voice," Judge said. "He's...

    A London accountant has described how Pakistan's disgraced nuclear hero Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan visited the West African state of Mali on three occasions between 1998 and 2000. Abdul Ma'bood Siddiqui accompanied A.Q. Khan on three mystery trips  between 1998 and 2000. Their final destination was Timbuktu, a remote outpost in the desert that has always been a magnet for explorers and adventurers from around the world. The mystery behind the visits has deepened following recent revelations that Khan is also the owner of a small hotel in the town that he has named after Hendrina, his Dutch-born wife and...
