What’s the going rate on American hostages?

University of Virginia student detained by North Korea

North Korea said Friday that it had arrested a University of Virginia student for allegedly committing “anti-state” acts orchestrated by the U.S. government.

In language that mirrors past North Korean claims of outside conspiracies, state media claimed Otto Frederick Warmbier entered the North as a tourist with a plot to undermine unity among the North Koreans with “the tacit connivance of the U.S. government and under its manipulation.”

The report from the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said Warmbier was “arrested while perpetrating a hostile act,” but didn’t say when he was detained or explain the nature of the act.

“Hold Off”? “HOLD OFF”?!?!?!

Is EVERYBODY and anyONE an ACCEPTABLE CASUALTY to this administration as long as you’re NOT IN THEIR WAY?!?

I also notice she’s changed out of her hijab and wrapped herself in a blanket of some sort. GOOD FOR HER.

‘Twould appear she’s the owner of the only set of BALLS in the entire crew.

That American servicemen would act in their own interest and abandon one of their own is DISGRACEFUL.

I hope she lit every jack one of them up royally when they got back to terra USA, and that she NEVER EVER lets the craven cowards off the hook.

DISGRACEFUL

I’d Call It a Smoking Gun, BUT

…those only seem to wind up laying next to the people working for her.

Well I’m So Glad They Cleared THAT Up

Don’t call us “barbarians” dammit; we have rules for how we “treat” our sexual slaves!

Islamic State theologians have issued an extremely detailed ruling on when “owners” of women enslaved by the extremist group can have sex with them, in an apparent bid to curb what they called violations in the treatment of captured females.

The ruling or fatwa has the force of law and appears to go beyond the Islamic State’s previous known utterances on the subject, a leading Islamic State scholar said. It sheds new light on how the group is trying to reinterpret centuries-old teachings to justify the sexual slavery of women in the swaths of Syria and Iraq it controls.

The fatwa was among a huge trove of documents captured by U.S. Special Operations Forces during a raid targeting a top Islamic State official in Syria in May. Reuters has reviewed some of the documents, which have not been previously published.

Among the religious rulings are bans on a father and son having sex with the same female slave; and the owner of a mother and daughter having sex with both. Joint owners of a female captive are similarly enjoined from intercourse because she is viewed as “part of a joint ownership.”

And the article ends with this particular piece of odious propaganda:

“Islam preaches freedom to slaves, not slavery. Slavery was the status quo when Islam came around,” he said. “Judaism, Christianity, Greek, Roman, and Persian civilizations all practiced it and took the females of their enemies as sex slaves. So Islam found this abhorrent practice and worked to gradually remove it.”

Slavery has existed as long as humans have, and it was 19th century Jews and Christians who worked to stamp it out in the West; in Islamic Eastern Africa and the Middle East it continues to this day.

I Know I’m Shocked

Would you believe that Cory Booker, who arguably didn’t even live in the city he was nominally Mayor of while he was gallivanting around the country prior to his anointment as Senator, would you believe that there was rampant corruption on his watch?

NEWARK – Newark officials said they were dismayed by the former head of the Newark Watershed Conservation Development Corporation’s guilty plea on corruption-related charges earlier this week – an outcome many felt could have been prevented.

Linda Watkins-Brashear, who presided over the non-profit agency until 2013 – just one year before it was dissolved amid widespread allegations of corruption and mismanagement – is facing up to 23 years in prison and $350,000 in fines for conspiracy and filing a false tax return.

She is the second person to plead guilty to charges related to the scandal, though many in the state’s largest city consider it a reflection of an agency run amok thanks to the wandering eye of now-U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, who was mayor over the entirety of Watkins’ tenure.

What’s so special about her tenure in Newark, you ask?

Other than that she got caught?

While Newark was laying off police officers and begging for state bailouts, one of its most important contractors was siphoning off millions of city dollars in illegal payments, sweetheart deals, and risky stock ventures right under the noses of city leaders, according to a report released today by the state comptroller’s office.

Until a judge appointed trustees to dissolve the agency last year, the Newark Watershed Conservation Development Corporation managed the city’s 35,000 acres of reservoirs and treated water for more than 500,000 customers in northern New Jersey.

Between 2008 and 2011, the state comptroller alleges that agency leaders and insiders absconded with millions of public dollars.

“This report documents an egregious and yet preventable abuse of public funds that was allowed to continue unfettered for years because of poor oversight,” said comptroller chief of staff Melissa Liebermann in a statement issued today with the 45-page report.

Acting State Comptroller Marc Larkins was recused from the matter. Much of the inquiry was headed by his predecessor, Matthew Boxer.

Linda Watkins-Brashear, the agency’s director and a political ally of former Newark mayor, now Sen. Cory Booker, wrote unreported checks to herself to the tune of $200,000, was awarded $700,000 in two severance packages, gave more than $1 million in contracts to her friends and ex-husband, and lost $500,000 in dubious stock ventures, the report states.

…Through her attorneys, Watkins-Brashear said the report wrongly laid blame at her feet and said she acted at all times with the knowledge and approval of then Mayor Cory Booker’s administration.

Yes, Booker’s a perfect fit for Washington.

And isn’t it funny how the Media ignores this.

Ace Perfectly Explains The New Sellout

And the cocooned assholes in the Republican Party wonder why some populist demagogue like Trump has such appeal

The New Gilded Age Is Better Than the Old Gilded Age Because Now We Have Homeland and Other Quality Premium Cable TV Offerings
If I have this right:

We needed to quadruple the number of H2B visas because we needed far more nonagricultural, low-skill, low-wage workers coming into the country. H2B visas are granted for jobs like “amusement park worker.”

As you know, amusement park workers, at, for example, large corporations like Disney, have been absolutely Raping their poor corporate paymasters with their insolent insistence that they be paid a dollar fifty more than minimum wage.

We need to import foreign workers to get that number down to a more acceptable dollar over minimum wage.

This makes our corporations More Globally Competitive (TM).

Now, the various American workers displaced by the foreign ones will go, of course, on welfare (after their unemployment insurance runs out, of course). Those costs will be borne by you, the American taxpayer.

Not only will those costs be borne by you, but so will all the knock-on costs. People stripped of their work are also stripped of their dignity. Work is a tangible connection, reinforced every hour of every day of every week, between present labor and good habits and future gain.

Read the whole thing. The GOP, especially after this latest Ryan debacle, deserves to disappear.

WHY Did We Not Know About the San Bernardino Killer’s FB Rantings?

Because immigration isn’t allowed to even peeky.

Secret US Policy Blocks Agents From Looking at Social Media of Visa Applicants, Former Official Says

Fearing a civil liberties backlash and “bad public relations” for the Obama administration

, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson refused in early 2014 to end a secret U.S. policy that prohibited immigration officials from reviewing the social media messages of all foreign citizens applying for U.S. visas, a former senior department official said.

“During that time period immigration officials were not allowed to use or review social media as part of the screening process,” John Cohen, a former acting under-secretary at DHS for intelligence and analysis. Cohen is now a national security consultant for ABC News.

One current and one former senior counter-terrorism official confirmed Cohen’s account about the refusal of DHS to change its policy about the public social media posts of all foreign applicants.

IF you are in the US, a prospective employer has a right to demand YOUR Facebook posts/social media past, but Obama says we can’t ask foreigners who want to enter the US ‘Whud you say online that might be unhelpful to the US? I forgot. The guy thinks a little collateral damage (re: you and me shot to pieces/sliced to ribbons) is okay, as long as we don’t hurt any Muslim feelings and he gets to say his “plan” is working.

Whoever came up with this should be shamed far worse than anything Lurch wants to do to Climate Deniers.

“It’s Like This is a Bothersome Thing for Him…”

That’s the reaction of a San Bernardino resident to Obama’s Oval Office “terrorism” speech Sunday.

“…GWEN IFILL: The president did not announce a new strategy to defeat the Islamic State, but he did call for greater gun control measures. They would include not allowing people whose names appear on no-fly lists to buy firearms.

In San Bernardino, reactions at a makeshift memorial were lukewarm.

MAN: He has to walk a fine line, but it probably comes across as a little weak, but that is kind of Obama’s style.

WOMAN: It wasn’t strong enough.

It appears to me, every time that he talks on camera, that this is like a bothersome thing for him, that he really just does not want to have to deal with this.

She nailed it. He just can’t be bothered, so why can’t we all accept the collateral damage and leave him the hell alone.

TRUTH BOMB.

So My Governor Has Joined the “NO” List

…adding Florida to the states refusing to accept Obama’s Syrian refugees.

But I’ve seen a whole butt load of screaming from Geller-type sites about the thousands that have already landed/are landing in New Orleans, and I’d like to shut that down right now.
HASN’T HAPPENED

There’s been, like, 14 people (three families) since January 1st.

…Despite blog posts and social media rumors indicating that thousands of Syrian refugees had already arrived in the New Orleans area, the U.S. State Department reported only 14 Syrian nationals have resettled in Louisiana since Jan. 1.

The State Department’s Refugee Processing Center handled three cases, settling seven refugees in Kenner, six in New Orleans and one in Baton Rouge, a spokesperson said.

You know, the truth is ugly enough without “our” side resorting to hyperbole and lies to whip up the base. The FACTS can do that all on their own. So PLEASE don’t pass along a blog post as if IT were Gospel, unless it has links to a reputable source.

That’s the only way we keep a handle on this madness and our integrity at the same time.

I Mean, Imagine THAT!

Not ONLY does Huma (an impeccable source, mind you) assert Hillary is “OFTEN CONFUSED” (?!?!?!?), but that she TAKES NAPS.

I don’t know which alarms me more. I remember that nap-taking was an issue when Reagan ran. Should we not also question Herself, then?

I wonder if she asked Huma if she had a blue dress…

Help! Help! I’m Being Oppressed!

Mizzou’s Bobby Sands, like all true revolutionaries, is a True Man of The People

Jonathan Butler, a central figure in the protests at the University of Missouri, is an Omaha native and the son of a railroad vice president, the Omaha World-Herald reports.

Butler refused food last week in a move to force the university system’s president, Timothy M. Wolfe, from office. Wolfe resigned Monday and Butler ended his hunger strike.

…He is a member of a prominent Omaha family. The newspaper says that Butler’s father is Eric L. Butler, executive vice president for sales and marketing for the Union Pacific Railroad. His 2014 compensation was $8.4 million, according to regulatory filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Note to Self: Religion…

…HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.

Campus stabber’s manifesto included ‘praise for Allah,’ plan for beheading

A handwritten manifesto carried by a California college student whose stabbing spree Wednesday left four wounded bore names of his targets, a vow “to cut someone’s head off” and as many as five reminders to “praise Allah,” law enforcement authorities told FoxNews.com, while insisting that neither terrorism nor religion appear to be motives in the attack.

Unlike Confederate flags and Sarah Palin, which have EVERYTHING to do with EVERYTHING.

Obama’s Released 66,000 Illegal Immigrants

Well, SURE there’s gonna be a few bad apples, right?

Sharyl Attkisson:

“The released illegal immigrants had 166,000 convictions: 30k DUI, 414 kidnapping, 11,000 sex assaults, 395 homicides”

The operative word in the sentence is CONVICTIONS. Can you imagine what charges hadn’t stuck?
The. Horror.

California Dreamin’

The Los Angeles Times (!) eviscerates Governor Moonbeam’s bullet train fantasy

The monumental task of building California’s bullet train will require punching 36 miles of tunnels through the geologically complex mountains north of Los Angeles.

Crews will have to cross the tectonic boundary that separates the North American and Pacific plates, boring through a jumble of fractured rock formations and a maze of earthquake faults, some of which are not mapped.

It will be the most ambitious tunneling project in the nation’s history.

State officials say the tunnels will be finished by 2022 — along with 300 miles of track, dozens of bridges or viaducts, high-voltage electrical systems, a maintenance plant and as many as six stations. Doing so will meet a commitment to begin carrying passengers between Burbank and Merced in the first phase of the $68-billion high-speed rail link between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

However, a Times analysis of project documents, as well as interviews with scientists, engineers and construction experts, indicates that the deadline and budget targets will almost certainly be missed — and that the state has underestimated the challenges ahead, particularly completing the tunneling on time.

“It doesn’t strike me as realistic,” said James Monsees, one of the world’s top tunneling experts and an author of the federal manual on highway tunneling. “Faults are notorious for causing trouble.”

The California High-Speed Rail Authority hasn’t yet chosen an exact route through the mountains. It also is behind schedule on land acquisition, financing and permit approvals, among other crucial tasks, and is facing multiple lawsuits. The first construction began in Fresno in July, 21/2 years behind the target the rail authority had set in early 2012.

A confidential 2013 report by the state’s main project management contractor, New York-based Parsons Brinckerhoff, estimated that the cost of building the first phase from Burbank to Merced had risen 31% to $40 billion. And it projected that the cost of the entire project would rise at least 5%.

Parsons Brinckerhoff briefed state officials on the estimate in October 2013, according to the document obtained by The Times. But the state used a lower cost estimate when it issued its 2014 business plan four months later.

Read the whole thing, please. It is pretty damn, er, damning.

I especially liked this part, which really sums up so much that is wrong with our government these days from on all levels, from local up to federal:

The rail authority still has not identified sources for about $53 billion to complete the entire Los Angeles-to-San Francisco line.

State officials are moving ahead without firm financial commitments, contending that private investors will eventually help finance the system. This month, three dozen companies solicited by the state said they are not ready to invest.

They don’t have the money, they don’t have a realistic plan to get the money, but they are going to go ahead and put you into crushing debt anyway because, well, they can.

Let’s hope that this article ignites a rebellion against this ridiculous project, and others like it from top to bottom.

Thou Shalt Not Think On Thine Own

Every night, France’s chief weatherman has told the nation how much wind, sun or rain they can expect the following day.
Now Philippe Verdier, a household name for his nightly forecasts on France 2, has been taken off air after a more controversial announcement – criticising the world’s top climate change experts.
Mr Verdier claims in the book Climat Investigation (Climate Investigation) that leading climatologists and political leaders have “taken the world hostage” with misleading data.
In a promotional video, Mr Verdier said: “Every night I address five million French people to talk to you about the wind, the clouds and the sun. And yet there is something important, very important that I haven’t been able to tell you, because it’s neither the time nor the place to do so.”
He added: “We are hostage to a planetary scandal over climate change – a war machine whose aim is to keep us in fear.”
His outspoken views led France 2 to take him off the air starting this Monday. “I received a letter telling me not to come. I’m in shock,” he told RTL radio. “This is a direct extension of what I say in my book, namely that any contrary views must be eliminated.”

It is all about control.

It Had Nothing to Do With Being Insane

…or possibly shitty parenting, or any combination of the two, right? And it’s a well known fact that of crazy homicidal people can’t GET guns, they’ll never kill anyone.

Ian Mercer, Oregon shooter’s dad: ‘That’s what guns are, the killers’

The father of Oregon gunman Christopher Harper-Mercer argued Saturday that his son never would have killed nine people last week at Umpqua Community College if he wasn’t able to get his hands on a gun in the first place.

“How on earth could he compile 13 guns? How could that happen?” Ian Mercer asked in an interview outside his California home Saturday, CNN reported.

Rape and child abuse ‘are rife in German refugee camps’: Unsegregated conditions blamed as women are ‘seen as fair game’ in overcrowded migrant centres

A culture of rape and sexual abuse is being allowed to take hold in asylum centres across Germany as Europe struggles to cope with the migrant crisis, it has been alleged,
Women’s rights groups and politicians have highlighted assaults against women and children in at least one camp.

And they suggest such incidents may be widespread, with many going unreported to the police.

Campaigners also claimed some men saw unaccompanied women as ‘fair game’, and also blamed conditions in which occupants were unsegregated by gender or nationality.

Do tell.

Shameful Demagogues and Lying Liars

You know what the problem is? FREE voter IDs are available at EVERY SINGLE COUNTY REGISTRAR’S OFFICE IN THE STATE.

…Friday, Hillary Clinton joined a growing nationwide chorus criticizing Alabama for closing driver’s license offices in the state’s poorest, blackest, and most Democratic counties.

In a statement Clinton called it quote “a blast from the Jim Crow past.”

…Mobile County Probate Judge Don Davis disagrees.

“In Alabama there are many different acceptable forms of photo ID,” said Davis.\

He says 90-percent of voters in Mobile County use a driver’s license but there are many other options.

“IDs issued by either the federal government or some agency of department of federal government, indian tribes, a public university or college, other government entities,” Davis said.

For those with none of the above, Alabama also issues a state voter ID card, and not through its driver’s license offices.

“The free voter ID card is actually issued through our boards of registrars,” said Albert Lipscomb who serves on the Baldwin County Board of Registrars. “And every county has a board of registrars.”

You never got them from the driver’s license office to begin with.

Not to mention the fact that the state accepts about 7+ different types of ID at the polls, besides the voter ID. Negating the whole meme.

But.

Jim Crow.

I Know Enough Not to Hold My Breath

I’ve waited all day for this President to talk about the hate crime that was this massacre.

I’ve waited all day for Mr. Can’t Get to a Microphone Fast Enough to express his outrageous outrage at these poor people being slaughtered simply for their faith.

I have waited all day for President the Police Acted Stupidly to vociferously condemn the racist hater who pulled the trigger over and over again, executing each soul based purely on their “Christian” answer.

I’ve waited to hear him call it a hate crime, period, considering his Charleston statement: “…And we know that hatred across races and faiths pose a particular threat to our democracy and our ideals.” Yes, Mr. President. But the flow “across the races and faiths” doesn’t only go one way.

And I’m sure I’ll be waiting to hear him warble Amazing Grace at the memorial service for white Christians martyred by a black shooter.

Sure, right? I’ve been waiting for him to remember he’s the president of ALL of us for quite a while.
