Ron Paul: A New HOPE?

"If there was a time for Ron Paul it would be now, in an election against a Democratic administration that has dramatically extended Federal power and created its own mini-tyranny. The problem is that Paul is just as unqualified and broken as Obama. Both men are products of rigid ideology who insist that applying it will fix all problems. They are both surrounded by cults of personality that elevate ordinary mediocre men into the avatars of 
hope and change." - Daniel Greenfield from his piece at his "Sultan Knish" blog:


"The Paul Pot and the Paulestinians"

"Merry Christmas, Fellow Infidels." - PIGMAN

"The charming aspect of Christmas is the fact that it expresses good will in a cheerful, happy, benevolent, non-sacrificial way. One says "Merry Christmas" -- not "Weep and Repent." And the good will is expressed in a material, earthly form -- by giving presents to one's friends, or by 
sending them cards in token of remembrance." 
- Ayn Rand

Voices of "Palestine"

This is just one of the many twisted creatures I've drawn for Front Page Magazine's "Voices of "palestine"" series. She was one of the jihadists who was freed by Israel in the heartfelt but brainless trade they made of a thousand prisoners, 477 of them convicted terrorists, for one individual Israeli. She's clearly as bloodthirsty as ever in this FOX News video.

Crier of the House

What's John Boehner most known for? Crying. Instead of doing his job as Speaker of the House to be THE voice of opposition to Obama and his gang, he keeps caving on important fights, and is now in competition with Glenn Beck to see who can cry more times in public.



Iran & Hezbollah Involved in 9/11?

My graphic below never gets old, and now "in a decision that should forever change the story of 9/11 and the West's Middle East policy, Judge George Daniels has just ruled that Iran and Hezbollah are responsible for 9/11." More......

Bane's Voice

My take on The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer, from the 59 second mark...
Will Bane's voice be the bane of the film? (UPDATE: Nolan has clearly clarified Bane's voice, though I didn't catch every word he said, he was understandable in the actual film) I was able to figure out what Bane said in the trailer, after a few listens, (couldn't make out the word "ashes" in it at first) but I understood about 1/3rd of what he said in the prologue that's playing in front of Mission: Impossible in IMAX, appropriately, since the ability to understand Bane is Impossible.





















As someone tweeted: "The Dark Knight Rises prologue was really great, especially when Bane spoke the soon-to-be-classic line: 'Mmrbl ffmrff hmrbblfmm."'

And from a friend: "my fav bane line was 'hdghfdgh ghhfdddrf hhjg?'

And to Christopher Nolan, from one movie to another...

Ron Paul Supporters Are...


























If Ron Paul placed LIFE before his idea of "Liberty", he would've placed the defense of America before any other reason he has for running for president

Mitt Romney slams Mitt Romney as "Progressive"

Take your TIME: PrOteSter or pROTesTER?

TIME Magazine just named its "Person of the Year":


THE PROTESTER: From the Arab Spring to Athens, From Occupy Wall Street to Moscow. (from the cover)


No mention of The Tea Party? Of course, this is the Leftist Time magazine and the Tea Party is the one protest movement that challenges their agenda. Maybe there's a slight mention of The Tea Party on the cover story inside, but who the hell has time to read Time? I suppose if we lived in a world where a TIME Magazine honored someone truly worthwhile as "The Individual of the Year" instead of a collective "Person", there'd be no protest against their choice.

"ELECTABLE!" is not a rallying cry

"HOPE" & "CHANGE" was B.S., but "ELECTABLE" is no rallying cry.


"Mitt Romney is a Republican that Obama supporters -- people who will most certainly end up voting for Obama anyway -- can live with."


Romney is most like Obama and therefore most likely to lose against the real thing. Slowcialist vs Socialist is not the answer.

The 64 %

An overwhelming 64 percent of Americans surveyed said big government was the biggest threat to America. "Little Love for big gov"

Time's Turkey of the Year?

UPDATE: TIME ended up choosing "The Protester" as their "Person of the Year"


Time magazine is poised to pick Turkey's Crime Minister Erdogan as their "Person of the Year." 


The Urban Dictionary's definition of turkey: (n) a loser; an uncoordinated, inept, clumsy fool or a tool; a person who is not in with current culture and slang or is just generally uncool.

Rugged Collectivism

Update 1/23/2013: Obama was pushing "collective action" in his second inaugural address. Why? Because he's anti-individualism aka anti-American.

Listen to the 1st hour of Amy Peikoff's podcast where she shreds Obama's latest and arguably worst speech, where he really pushes his egalitarian agenda.


PIGMAN: UnPakistan Now

Pakistan harbors mass murderer of Americans Osama bin Laden for Years and we let them get away with it. Now they threaten to shoot down U.S. drones? We need to go in there and take over their nukes, dismantle them, and leave them with a death threat if they make any more false moves against us.

"A Cartoonist vs. Jihad"

I was on The Jamie Glazov Show Tues. night, Dec. 6th to talk about taking on Islam and its Jihad through my work. I really enjoyed the good give and take. You can listen to it here.  



This One's for Rhea Page

Four Muslim women brutally attacked 24 year old Rhea Page in England for no apparent reason. Then in the trial, the judge cited Islam as the reason......to let them off...... since they weren't used to drinking, being Muslim. In the horrors I read about on Islam's daily assault against the civilized world, there are always a few stories which make me choke up, this is one of them. There's a video of this attack available online that was very difficult to sit through, and it made me so angry that I felt I had to counter the disgusting brutality with this drawing. You deserve justice, Rhea, I hope your attackers and the judge pay for what they did to you.

PIGMAN on The Daily Show


(my segment is best -or can only be- viewed on a computer.)

Don't Judge a Comic Book By its Creator's Appearance on The Daily Show.


Why I agreed to appear, and what was cut from the 3-hour taping.


On March 1st of this past year, “The Daily Show” aired a prerecorded segment that I taped with them a few weeks earlier. During the segment I was interviewed by Aasif Mandvi, the show’s “liberal Muslim” correspondent. The main topic discussed was the “Muslim” Batman, but we also spent a significant amount of time discussing my own creation, a counter-jihad superhero named Pigman. Based on what was filmed during the 3-hour shoot, the segment had the potential to be humorous, controversial and informative. How it actually turned out was the product of some pretty crafty editing. And, unfortunately, I had no control over that. It was still humorous, but it was gutted of almost all significant substance, and some of the good humorous bits were left out as well.

First, I need to explain why I agreed to do it at all. I’ve been working on my graphic novel, The Infidel featuring Pigman, for years. After trying with dozens of agents, editors, and publishers to get someone to take on the project, and finding that not even those who were sympathetic were willing to do so (some cited Muslim reprisal as a reason,) I needed to get publicity however I could. In this context, one day I received an e-mail from one of “The Daily Show” producers, asking me to appear and discuss my views on Nightrunner, the “Muslim” Batman, which I had discussed in this post here at NewsRealBlog.com. After having long conversations with two different producers, and realizing their interest in having me on was real, and included an interest in discussing Pigman, I decided, for better or worse, to go ahead with it.
When I arrived at the shoot, I learned that my interviewer would be Aasif Mandvi, the show’s “liberal” Muslim correspondent. When I commented on this to the producer (he had actually mentioned a different correspondent in one of the e-mails leading up to the shoot), he played dumb (of course.) I smelled a rat, but proceeded anyway. During my interactions with them on the set, the producer, Aasif, and the crew were professional and friendly, which was to be expected. (The producer was also friendly to me in correspondence via e-mail both before and after the shoot. This was also to be expected.)
Then came time for the sit-down interview. It was wide-ranging, going from serious to funny to silly to blasphemous. Here are some of the things I recall that were left out of the edited segment:
The most egregious omission/dropping-of-context was with respect to my answer to the question that was supposed to be the focus of the piece: “What is wrong with a Muslim Batman?” The aired segment makes it appear as if my answer was “Nightrunner could be a Jihadist.” During the actual shooting, I was prompted to state that as a complete sentence, after responding “yes” to Aasif’s question, “Could Nighrunner be a Jihadist?” That statement was NOT given as an answer to the question, “What is wrong with a Muslim Batman?”  My answer to that question is and was a lot more involved. The short answer, which I stated immediately after being asked the question, and which was edited out, was, “What’s wrong with Batman, during WWII, recruiting a German Batman with no mention of Nazis?” During a significant portion of the interview, Aasif was emphasizing that comics aren’t real and was asking, in essence: Why can’t comics just take a piece of reality, out of context, if they want? My point was, you can’t peer into reality just a little bit, and pick-and-choose in this way. The only reason Nightrunner exists (and probably the reason Aasif is on “The Daily Show” although he seems to be a nice guy who does a good job) is because Muslim terrorists attacked us on September 11, 2001, and they did it in the name of Islam. (I made a similar point during the interview.) In my view, it is irresponsible for any cultural medium to include Muslims while dropping the larger context that is the reason for including them at all. (At least “The Daily Show” sometimes includes some of this larger context, and often does a good job of it.)

Another noteworthy instance of my being taken out of context was with respect to my view of the propensity of Muslims to become Jihadists, and how one should deal with self-described Muslims. Yes, I did say that I think it is possible for a Muslim to become a Jihadist. This is because, as I have learned in the research I did leading up to writing and drawing The Infidel, Islam prescribes Jihad as something its true believers should engage in, in order to spread Islam. What I discussed in the interview, which didn’t make it into the final segment, was my own attitude towards individual Muslims. I have family members who consider themselves Muslims with whom I am friendly, and I would certainly not conclude that your average Muslim is likely to become a Jihadist. They cut from the segment the following statement, which clearly distinguishes average Muslims from Islam’s consistent practitioners: “Your average Muslim is morally superior to Mohammed. They are individuals who may or may not be a problem. It’s Islam’s consistent practitioners, it’s organized Islam, that is the problem.” Obviously, this statement made me seem too reasonable (or maybe they thought it was too blasphemous) for it to be included in the segment.
Another significant point that was omitted was my view that, while most Muslims are relatively harmless, there are still aspects of Islam that are detrimental to even more passive Mulsims: the casual misogyny, anti-Semitism, and the idea that everyone outside the clan is, essentially, worthless. I was brought up surrounded by all of this.
Some less significant, but genuinely funny things were omitted. For example, when I was discussing the Islamization of the West by Muslims and Islamophiles — e.g., DC Comics featuring JLA/99 and Nightrunner — Aasif humorously tried to correct me, saying, “You mean Islamicizing.” And I replied, “No, Islamization.” He repeated, “Islamicizing?” I answered “Islamization.” This went on a few times until Aasif said, as if conceding, “Oh, Islamicizing, yeah, right, that’s the Muslim exercise,” to which I quipped, “Five times a day.” And then he said, “Ohhhh, Islamophobic humor.” I immediately dismissed this as “Islamophonia,” because fear of Islam is not irrational. And we had a little back-and-forth on that as well.
One unfortunate omission was something that was silly, but fun. They quoted my term, “IslamiCrap,” which I used in my post about Nightrunner. Aasif said only, “IslamiCrap.” And I replied, “Yeah, that’s right, ‘Islam means peace,’ the Muslim Batman, IslamiCrap.” And he responded, “How about Islami$#!+?” and I said, “No, IslamiCrap.” To which he responded, “How about IslamiDooDoo?” And I held my ground, “No, IslamiCrap,” saying it rolls off the tongue better. Perfectly silly, fun. Too bad it was left out.
Another thing you don’t see in the aired segment is Aasif conducting part of the interview in his superhero suit, which you see at the end of the aired segment. During that part of the sit-down interview, he asked me what I thought about him and his suit and, echoing Howard Roark’s response to a similar question from Ellsworth Toohey in The Fountainhead, I said, “I don’t.” The premise of that part of the segment, the producer told me on set, was that Aasif wanted to be a superhero and I, by ruling out the possibility of a Muslim superhero, was ruining his chances. So we had a back-and-forth during which I said that, if he was willing to go after Jihadists, then that was fine with me, and he agreed to do so. Fairly funny stuff, not as good as some of the other omitted material.
Perhaps the funniest bit that was omitted from the aired segment was Aasif and I, supposedly traveling to my “psteudio” in a car. The premise was that, because of the nature of my work, I would take precautions with respect to who could come to my studio and I would not let visitors learn its location. So, like Batman did in the 1960′s TV show, we put a blindfold on Aasif. The difference being that here, Aasif was actually doing the driving, while blindfolded, getting directions from me, sitting in the passenger seat next to him.
To their credit, the editors did not take advantage of two instances where I misspoke. In one instance, when speaking about the English Batman, I mentioned London and England interchangeably, as if both were cities. In another, I was referring to Pigman’s super strength and I said, as a throwaway, that he’s as strong as 40 men, or 20 jihadists, when I meant the converse (i.e., I meant jihadists were weaker than the average man, not stronger). But in any event, that could have worked to Pigman’s benefit, to make him seem even tougher.
One final thing that shows how they really tried to make me look bad, down to the last detail: they gave Aasif both our rations of pre-camera make-up. :)
Despite my experience, I want to give kudos to “The Daily Show” for having the nerve to showcase Pigman, even if only to make fun of him and me for a couple minutes.

Anti-Semite in Chief

There's been a clear pattern of Obama's anti-semitism and he just confirmed it once again when his administration expressed "full confidence" in the anti-semitic ambassador to Belgium who said that the Israeli-"palestinian" conflict was one reason for anti-semitism that stretches back thousands of years. The White House gave him their support after he expressed his regret (to it causing an uproar). The ambassador said that he strongly condemns anti-semitism in all its forms. If he truly did, he would never have said what he said. If you think it's too much to call Obama "Anti-Semite in Chief", ask yourself if you think the ambassador would have Obama's "full confidence" if he said something similar about the Muslim world?

The Indispensable Robert Spencer

I can't imagine where we'd be without the work of Robert Spencer. I think he's the most consistent, articulate truth teller about Islam in the world, and the daily ideological battle he wages at Jihad Watch has helped arm me and countless individuals with the knowledge we need in order to join the fight we've all been forced into by the enemy.

Two weeks ago I had the honor of debating on Robert's side in a panel on Islam vs "Islamism".

Giving The Enemy Cover

Here's an excerpt from a piece I just wrote for FrontPage Magazine, Non-Muslim Muslims & the Jihad Against the West


My name is Bosch and I’m a recovering Muslim.
That is, if Muslims don’t kill me for leaving Islam, which it requires them to do. That’s just one of the reasons I’ve been writing and drawing against Islam and its Jihad for a number of years now. But fortunately for us, Islam hasn’t been able to make every Muslim its slave, just as Nazism wasn’t able to turn every German into a Nazi. So there is Islam and there are Muslims. Muslims who take Islam seriously are at war with us and Muslims who don’t aren’t.
But that doesn’t mean we should consider these reluctant Muslims allies against Jihad. I’ve been around Muslims my entire life and most of them truly don’t care about Islam. The problem I have with many of these essentially non-Muslim Muslims, especially in the middle of this war being waged on us by their more consistent co-religionists, is that they give the enemy cover. They force us to play a game of Muslim Roulette since we can’t tell which Muslim is going to blow himself up until he does. And their indifference about the evil being committed in the name of their religion is a big reason why their reputation is where it is.
So while I understand that most Muslims are not at war with us, they’ve proven in their silence and inaction against jihad that they’re not on our side either, and there’s nothing we can say or do to change that. We just have to finally accept it and stop expecting them to come around, while doing our best to kill those who are trying to kill us.
