The Latest ISIS Apologist Strategy on Twitter

…is to post pictures from Abu Graib and go “OH, YEAH?!?!”

After all, they are exactly the same. Well, except the part where the guy on the leash has HIS head. Oh. And the three meals a day, visits from the Red Crescent, Amnesty, etc. But EXACTLY the same. Well. Except where the ugly chick laughing, the dog handler ~ pretty much everybody else, right on up to the harridan General running the unit was FORCED OUT OF THE ARMY/did some brig time.

But, other than that, EXACTLY the same.

Iraq’s Christians are begging the world for help. Is anybody listening?

Since capturing the country’s second largest city of Mosul in early June, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has ordered Christians to convert to Islam, pay jizya taxes levied on non-Muslims, or die. The extremist Sunni group is also persecuting and murdering Turkmen and Shabaks, both Muslim religious minorities.

Human rights lawyer Nina Shea described the horror in Mosul to me: “(ISIS) took the Christians’ houses, took the cars they were driving to leave. They took all their money. One old woman had her life savings of $40,000, and she said, ‘Can I please have 100 dollars?’, and they said no. They took wedding rings off fingers, chopping off fingers if they couldn’t get the ring off.”

…For the first time in 2,000 years, Mosul is devoid of Christians.

“This is ancient Nineveh we are talking about,” Shea explained. “They took down all the crosses. They blew up the tomb of the prophet Jonah. An orthodox Cathedral has been turned into a mosque. They are uprooting every vestige of Christianity.” University of Mosul professor Mahmoud Al ‘Asali, a Muslim, bravely spoke out against ISIS’ purging of Christians and was executed.

But it’s Christians, so…meh.

‘Send Them Back’: Wealthy Cape Cod Town Rejects Plan to House Immigrant Children

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has answered the call to shelter immigrant children, but Cape Cod residents aren’t having it.

Last week, the Democratic governor announced his offer to house up to 1,000 children at Camp Edwards military base on Cape Cod. Concerned for the children’s wellbeing, Patrick declared, “I think we are the kind of country and the kind of Commonwealth who can step up.”

The town of Bourne disagrees.

A wealthy and historic community at the mouth of Cape Cod, Bourne traditionally attracts vacationers and tourists, not refugees. Residents fear the influx of migrant children could change this forever.

And I have no problem with it at all, as long as the exact same answer from, say, Chumuckla is greeted with the exact same deference and respect for the right to scream “NIMBY”, regardless of social station, ZIP OR voting card.

Terror plot targeting Eiffel Tower, Louvre foiled, French police say

French authorities say they foiled an Islamic terrorist plot reportedly targeting the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and a nuclear power plant last year.

The revelation comes as the country unveiled new anti-terror rules which included a proposal to ban terror suspects from leaving the country if it is thought they intend to fight abroad, The Telegraph reported.

French authorities revealed they arrested a 29-year-old Algerian butcher living in southern France June 2013, after they found coded messages between him and a high-ranking Al Qaeda member discussing how “to conduct jihad in the place you are currently,” according to Le Parisien.

The suspect, identified in the newspaper report as Ali M, reportedly said he would target French landmarks including the Eiffel Tower, Louvre and

“cultural events that take place in the south of France in which thousands of Christians gather for a month.”

Authorities: Military service member with concealed carry permit shoots attacker
Gresham man injured, charged after firing on group leaving party, prosecutors said

A Gresham man fired on a group of people leaving a party, only to be shot himself by one of the victims, a military service member with a concealed carry permit, authorities said.
…One of the victims had noticed a cup of liquor on top of her vehicle and asked attendees of a party next door who it belonged to, Hain said.

When she removed it, Denzel A. Mickiel approached her, shouting obscenities and threatening her and her friends, according to Hain and court records.

Mickiel, 22, went into the residence, returned with a gun and began firing at the group, she said.

As Mickiel fired at the victims’ vehicle, the military member retrieved his gun and took cover near the vehicle’s front fender, according to Hain. Two unidentified people also shot at the group, she said.

The military service member fired two shots and struck Mickiel twice, she said.

I’m sure Rahm will find some way to prosecute the defender.

I’m a “Neo-Con” on Facebook For This Post

Oh. And for asking a fellow (shortly there-after unfriended, just like the commercial),

“Who OWES you a job? And, if said PRIVATELY, religiously inclined company actually OFFERS you one, who are YOU to accept and then DEMAND THEY change for YOU?”

What I wrote:

Seriously. IF you CHOOSE to work for an employer who ~ and you KNOW this accepting the job ~ has sincere religious tenets and infuses them constantly through EVERY phase of the company, from boardroom to advertising, DON’T be surprised if you can’t DO everything ~ and HAVE everything you’d have ~ if you worked at a publicly held corp like Proctor and Gamble, or something. If YOU CAN’T live within the precepts of the FAMILY who OWNS the business, DON’T WORK FOR THEM. People ALWAYS get blistered when a religiously based, PRIVATELY held entity (like a Catholic school, etc.) abides by ITS rules and expects ITS employees ~ who knew that going in ~ to do the same, and it’s the most LUDICROUS thing I’ve ever heard. They don’t OWE you that job, less mind anything else. NOR do they OWE YOU the dilution of those principles for YOUR convenience or in answer to some bureaucrat’s mandate. Seek employment in a place that reflects your values, lack there of, or is publicly held and wonderfully diverse enough to answer to ALL it’s employees’ demands and those the current/future administration chooses to place upon them by fiat.

This utterly manufactured outrage (not to mention the outright LIES, considering the employer in question covered over SIXTEEN forms of BIRTH CONTROL and only chose to contest the abortifacients) at a narrow decision protecting that privately/closely held company right from the most egregious intrusion of Government By The Bic is ridiculous.

Three Kidnapped Israeli Teens Found Dead in Hebron

The three Israeli teenagers kidnapped several weeks ago by Hamas have been found dead in the Palestinian area of Hebron, where Israeli forces are currently raiding Palestinian homes, according to Israeli military sources.

The Israeli Defense Forces confirmed late Monday during a press briefing that the bodies had been discovered. Hamas operatives near Jerusalem were identified by Israeli intelligence sources as being responsible for the kidnapping.

I despise this president more than anything I can possibly imagine except for the folks he has emboldened.

ths update: THIS is what a REAL LEADER OF HIS PEOPLE promises:

Netanyahu: ‘Hamas Will Pay’ For The Killing Of Three Israeli Teens

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised a strong response to the killing of three Israeli teens abducted from a highway junction outside of the West Bank settlement of Kfar Etziyon on June 12th.

The Israeli security cabinet is currently meeting to weigh possible responses to the teens’ murders. Netanyahu ordered an extensive air campaign in the Gaza Strip in late 2012 in response to rocket attacks originating in the Hamas-controlled coastal area. While the campaign resulted in the deaths of several high-ranking Hamas operatives, including Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari, the campaign ceased admit international pressure — and resulted in Israel lightening its control of goods and individuals entering the Strip.

…On his Facebook page, Netanyahu was clear in assigning responsibility.

He wrote that the three were “murdered in cold blood by human animals,” and promised that “Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay.

No #hashtag required for THAT message.

Majority Of Delinquent Detroit Water Customers In Culture Of: ‘You’re Not Making Me Pay,’ Says Deputy Director

DETROIT (WWJ) – Several people protested outside the Detroit Water And Sewerage Department building Thursday, saying customers are having service cut off at an alarming rate and the practice is inhumane.

Organizer David Bullock with the Change Agent Consortium says the water department is going after customers that may be as little as $150 delinquent and says the department ignores large corporations which are behind.

“People always want to attack the poor … why are we attacking poor people?” he asked.

But when asked which large companies are behind in their payments, Bullock would only say that WWJ should research the issue.

…City of Detroit Water And Sewerage Department Deputy Director, Darryl Latimer,…

The majority of our customers (who) are in delinquency status, they just built a culture of ,’You’re not making me pay— I am not going to pay,” said Latimer.

A Statement From the National Border Patrol Council

WHAT a frickin’ MESS.

The Rio Grande Valley Sector of the United State Border Patrol is currently experiencing record high numbers of unaccompanied juveniles and Other Than Mexicans (OTMs). These apprehensions are straining a border enforcement system due to the additional regulations, laws, and court decisions that apply to apprehended juveniles and OTMs.

Nearly half of all Border Patrol agents assigned to the Rio Grande Valley are working at duties that would not be considered to be law enforcement. These duties include feeding, clothing, and watching after children. These duties are slowly being taken over by FEMA and other governmental groups, but still leave a small group of agents protecting our borders. The cartels know this and have been actively exploiting the situation. Cartels are forcing juveniles and illegal aliens to cross the border in between the ports of entries because it further ties up Border Patrol agents in the field. In effect, cartels are using these immigrants as a human shield to divert resources that would otherwise be spent interrupting their trafficking operations. Once the agents are taken out of the equation, the cartels are smuggling drugs, weapons, and special interest aliens across the border unfettered. At a time when agents are most needed to deal with the cartel threat, they are unavailable because they are either dealing with a tidal wave of humanity by either arresting juveniles and families in the field or by processing them in the stations.

Border Patrol agents have been dealing with a very difficult situation in exemplary fashion. The humanity and compassion shown to these children and families is unrivaled. Agents are not abusing them, mocking them, or neglecting them, contrary to what many special interest groups are saying. In fact, many Border Patrol agents have helped care for these aliens even at personal expense. These dedicated public servants have gone above and beyond the call of duty to care for these individuals while ensuring the laws of the United States are enforced.

This situation, which started due to violence and dire economic conditions in Central America, has now exploded due to the message being relayed that the immigration laws of the United States are not being enforced.

Interviews with detainees reflect this and this situation will continue if there are not consequences for breaking the immigration laws of the United States. We cannot continue to release detainees, even with the goal of deporting them in the future, if we hope to stop the flow of illegal aliens through the Rio Grande Valley.

Mandatory detention and deportation is the only consequence that will resolve the problem.

We’re with you guys. Shame your fearless leader isn’t.

What to Say?

I’m not the type who could, oh, go golfing if I was responsible for these people being slaughtered eventually.

US spy agencies heard Benghazi attackers using State Dept. cell phones to call terrorist leaders

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.

The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.

And, as always, Vote Hillary! SHE’S (got the knife in) YOUR BACK!

Man arrested for sneaking into Thad Cochran’s wife’s nursing home

A Pearl man who runs a political blog is accused of sneaking into a nursing home where U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran’s wife is bedridden and photographing her, then posting the image in a video political “hit piece” on the internet.

Madison Police arrested Clayton Thomas Kelly, 28, of Pearl on Friday night on a charge of exploitation of a vulnerable adult. He’s being held on a $100,000 bond.

Kelly is accused of sneaking into St. Catherine’s Village in Madison, where Rose Cochran has resided since 2000, suffering from progressive dementia and now bedridden.

What a miserable, soulless prick.

Minimum wage order sends veterans packing from nursing homes

SHREVEPORT, La -
Some military veterans are being forced to leave their nursing home. It’s an unintended consequence of President Obama’s executive order in February to raise the minimum wage for new federal contract workers from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour.

Sandy Franks, public affairs officer at Shreveport’s Overton Brooks V. A. Medical Center, explains that nursing homes that have contracts for subsidized care from the Veterans Administration become federal contractors. If they refuse to raise their wages, their contracts will not be renewed.

Former Marine A.J. Crain just wheeled himself into his new room at Shreveport Manor on Mansfield Road when he got the news that the home’s contract will end this month.

“We fought all your wars, and now we’re broke. Where do we go from here?” Crain asks.

“We gotta go. Simple as that. We gotta go,” says Vietnam War Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient John Washington.

“I think it’s very wrong. I think it’s very distasteful,” Washington goes on to say about Shreveport Manor’s decision. “I mean some of these people here work their backsides off to keep this place going,” he said, pointing to a woman changing his bed.

Shreveport Manor is owned by Gamble Guest Care. Their Chief Operating Officer says if they raise wages for workers there, they have to do that at all eight of their facilities.

In a statement, Gamble COO Matt Machen said, in part,

“The additional labor expenses are simply unaffordable. As such, many long term care providers have indicated that they will no longer seek or renew V.A. contracts.

Franks at the V.A. agrees that this has the potential to be a national problem as more V.A. contracts with nursing homes expire.

“Has the POTENTIAL” to be a problem?!

And just what the doctor ordered for the VA right now, wouldn’t you say?

Councilwoman Bess Rich Calls for Investigation

City councilwoman Bess Rich says leading up to a Mobile Planning Commission meeting on April 17th, her freedom of speech was compromised.
At that meeting, plans were approved for an Islamic Mosque to expand. The Islamic Center is located on East Drive in Mobile.

Today, she read a 7 page document before the council detailing what happened and asked for an investigation. Rich says prior to the April 17th meeting, she was told by city council attorney Jim Rossler that a complaint had been filed to the Justice department on behalf of the Islamic Center concerning a possible discrimination of rights violation*.

She says she was also warned not to object to the Planning Commission application submitted by the Islamic Center.

“As a result of this legal advice and my great fear of a lawsuit, I reluctantly did not step forward to render my opinion or thoughts regarding the proposed development,” Rich read. She went on to say during an interview after the meeting,

“I was told that if I address the issue I would be personally held responsible and could be sued by the Justice department and so I was warned not to address the Planning Commission on the application and to make no objects.”

Oddly enough, after the planning commission voted to let the mosque go ahead, the city attorney said, “OOPS!” After “further research” he’d determined his initial advice had been wrong and that the city was, indeed, obligated to defend her. But that update was too late in coming to affect the recommendation for approval.

‘Magine that.

*More on the alleged discrimination of rights violation complaint:

…City Councilwoman Bess Rich, who represents the neighborhood where the Islamic Center expansion is slated, said during Tuesday’s council meeting that she was told by City Council Attorney Jim Rossler to be wary about voicing her concerns on the development during the commission’s April 17 meeting because of a threat that she could be personally sued.

Her concerns stem from an investigation that was initiated by the U.S. Attorney’s Office last year over a potential violation to the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, which prohibits governments from imposing a land use regulation that imposes substantial burdens on religious freedoms.

The probe stems from the City Council’s vote in May 2013 to deny the Islamic Center of Mobile’s application for an expansion project that included a new school and mosque.

The council, amid concerns about traffic issues along East Drive and parking during the project’s construction, voted unanimously against the project.

…Rich said she was approached by Rossler ahead of the April 17 meeting and was told not to say anything about the project because legal action might be forthcoming by the Justice Department. She said that Rossler told her that if she was sued, not to expect the city to defend her against the federal agency.

…Rossler confirmed that the Department of Justice informed the city that they were opening an investigation. He said a formal letter about the probe into the council’s denial of the Islamic Center’s application last year was opened on Nov. 15.

…Rich said she is concerned that her civil rights as a concerned representative of the district might have been affected. She is equally concerned that other commissioners or city officials might have been approached ahead of April 17 meeting over concerns about how a federal investigation might be handled if they were opposed to the Islamic Center project.

“It’s a very serious issue to have your civil rights, which are constitutionally protected freedoms of speech, to have been thwarted,” Rich said. “That’s a very serious violation even as an individual, but more so or equal to as an elected official … that you would be personally sued (if you spoke out against the project). I did not get that (concern) corrected until way after the hearing.”

Rich requested that a hearing into an appeal of the Planning Commission’s recommendation be delayed until “an investigation is initiated on what was told to the planning staff and commissioners.” She said she wants to find out who was involved in last year’s appeal to the Justice Department and whether the federal investigation prevented a “fair and opening hearing” on April 17.

As for “discrimination”, well…I can understand parking and traffic issues completely. We have little home grown Christian churches around here and Bible studies that just outgrow the neighborhoods, and they’re a pain in the ass, God love ‘em. We’re not telling you you can’t have your church anymore. But PLEASE MOVE it where the infrastructure can HANDLE it.

Then again, those little preachers ~ most of them ~ don’t have kids like THIS particular mosque’s Imam, either.

Mosque Leader Says Discrimination a Factor

It’s a situation that has the president of a local mosque pondering his next move.

“I believe in all my heart that this is somewhat of a discrimination,” said Shafik Hammami.

The Islamic Society of Mobile has called East Drive home for over 20 years. The buildings however, are much older, and that’s why Hammami wants to rebuild.

…”Does it have anything to do with them being Muslim?” I asked [a neighbor] Montgomery. “Not really, no. Of course it’s, you know we have feelings. Terrorist that came from that particular mosque, makes you think,” she said.

And that terrorist is Omar Hammami, who is Shafik Hammami’s son. He is on the America’s Most Wanted list for supporting the terrorist organization Al Shabaab and recruiting terrorist for the organization.

“I don’t blame the American people for having the fear, but I do blame people who do not pursue the truth. The truth is we are a peaceful religion, and we have nothing to do with the terror acts going on all over the world,” said Hammami.

Soooo, schmaybe it’s NOT JUST the traffic that’s giving the neighbors fits and starts, eh? And the son’s name might not ring the proverbial bell, but if I tell you he’s the chirpy little bearded f*cker who was the mouthpiece for Al Qaeda affiliate Al-Shabaab in Somalia, who has since been reportedly whacked by those same good-natured fellas, would that ring a bell?

As for his religion of peace loving dad, his comments on his murderous son’s death were:

…”Of course I hope not, I hope it’s not true,” Shafik Hammami told ABC News in a telephone interview from his Alabama home. “Our lives have been on a roller coaster for a long time, and we’ve been there before… we just hope that it’s not true this time.”

If the reports are accurate, however, Shafik said his son died “fighting for his principles.”

He did what he wanted to do and he fulfilled his principles,” Shafik said. “If he indeed died, he died fighting for his principles, whatever they are.

TOTAL REPUDIATION of the violence inherent in Islamic teachings THERE, wouldn’t you say?

And trust the Obama DOJ to come down on the side you’d figure they would.
