…of asking the home invader what his intentions are and, if violence is included, accepting it as your fate, because…well…Christ.
Via Glenn: And the PERFECT illustration of the rollover-and-die principle happens almost immediately. You KNOW what Preacher Man would have had this quick thinking young lad do, even though the question was fairly put to the home intruder vis-à-vis HIS intentions…
Young boy shoots suspected burglar, mocks him for ‘crying like a baby’
11-year-old Chris Gaither from Talladega, Alabama, has told reporters how an intruder “cried like a baby” after Chris shot him in the leg with a 9mm handgun.
Home school-student Chris was alone at his house on Wednesday morning when he heard footsteps; someone had broken in and was walking around upstairs, apparently intending to burgle the Gaither’s home.
Chris took hold of a nearby gun and prepared to face the intruder, who started coming back down the stairs carrying a hamper.
“When he was coming down the stairs, that’s when he told me he was going to kill me, f-you and all that,” the boy told local news broadcaster WVTM.
An effort by a group of Stanford University students to restore a Western civilization class requirement has been decisively rejected by the student body, with voting results released Monday showing it mustering less than 15 percent support.
Young men like the perpetrators of the Brussels attacks refuse to embrace the social codes of Belgian life.
The first reaction to the Brussels massacres among postmodern European intellectuals was predictable: What did we, Europeans, do to them, our Muslims? How could followers of a religion that is proudly called “the religion of peace” commit these kinds of atrocities?
People like Peter Vandermeersch, the Belgian editor-in-chief of Dutch newspaper NRC-Handelsblad, and Belgian writer David Van Reybrouck, both accomplished intellectuals, argued that Belgium must have done something terrible to deserve this. Their line of reasoning: The terrorists’ fury must be a reaction to their inhumane treatment at the hands of the West.
So, we blame ourselves in order to remain blameless. Safer to blame our own societies and socioeconomic conditions than to blame the religious and cultural concepts with which terrorists poison their own minds.
…There is no difference at all in socioeconomic status between youngsters from a low-education, blue-collar Belgian background and youngsters from a Muslim migrant background. Both have to struggle, both have to overcome weak socioeconomic family situations.
In Spain, youth unemployment has reached 50 percent and the welfare state is less developed than in Belgium, yet Spanish citizens aren’t blowing themselves up in metro stations.
The other explanation for the high unemployment figures among Muslims in Europe has nothing to do with exclusion and discrimination. A large segment of the migrant population is doing just fine, but a significant number — some say as many as 50 percent — have not rid themselves of the mental and cultural conditions that have kept their home country in its “developing country” status. The denial of equal rights to women, the lack of separation of state and church, bad education, excessive religiosity, patriarchal machismo — these are all on display in areas with a high percentage of migrants, including Molenbeek.
And a late Easter message to Swillers inspired by our President’s Easter address:
Attorney General Lynch Looks Into Prosecuting ‘Climate Change Deniers’
In news that should shock and anger Americans, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that not only has she discussed internally the possibility of pursuing civil actions against so-called “climate change deniers,” but she has “referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action.”
We ARE a police state and Obama’s not even bothering with a glove.
Sure glad it can’t happen here. Our locally elected officials are nothing like this:
Just four weeks before the carnage in Paris, a list of nearly 100 suspected Islamic militants – many with links to Syria – was passed to the mayor of the Molenbeek, the Brussels district that now stands at the heart of the web of terror linking the atrocities in France and Belgium.
Provided by Belgium’s security services, it included not only the names but also the addresses of men who were to become pivotal in the bloodshed and horror in Brussels and Paris.
For among those on the list of militants in Molenbeek and Schaerbeek, another district of Brussels that has emerged as a haven for terrorists, was failed Paris suicide bomber Salah Abdeslam, his brother Brahim, who blew himself up during the November 13 attacks that killed 130 in the French capital, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the ringleader in Paris and Najim Laachraoui, one of the Brussels airport bombers….
…Disturbingly at the time the list was passed to her, Molenbeek’s mayor Françoise Schepmans clearly did not realise its significance, telling an interviewer:
‘What was I supposed to do about them? It is not my job to track possible terrorists. It is the responsibility of the federal police.’

When our prizzy can take a moment from dancing with his compadre Raul, I wonder if the phrase “acceptable casualties” will come out of his mouth again, or if he only uses that for victims of Islamic madmen slaughtered here?
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.
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 wanted to methodically stomp on his desperate wish casting by asserting the simple creed 99.9% of Americans live their daily lives by: randomly attack neither Muslim nor Jedi nor Jew nor ANYONE ELSE, for that matter. EVER.
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.
“…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.
…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.
