Simone rants about Tom Cotton

For sending a letter to Iran making clear the GOP won't put up with the autocracy's nuclear warfare program, Gail Simone's written some very unfunny tweets about a politician who served in Iraq while he was in the army:

Correction: you have no qualification for commenting on serious issues, and no business making jokes out of them. She's one of a very small portion who want to demonize Cotton for standing up to despots. Cotton served in the army, and with dignity. Simone probably never did.

I don't see why she need pay attention to Cotton if she doesn't like him.

I think Simone is an ostrich who puts her head in the sand. I guess Russia's own weaponry development during the Cold War was no big deal either, eh?

I think Simone's the bad lecturer here. She makes a very bad comedian too at this point.

If there were a magazine highlighting apologists, Simone should be in every feature story about them.

Simone is long past the point where her "jokes" are becoming unforgivably disgusting.

If she brings to mind any dinos, it'd probably be a stegosaurus, which is pretty slow on the uptake.

I'm coming to the conclusion Simone hates justice, and turns her back on innocent women in Iran who've been tortured by the regime's autocrats.

And Simone should never have to write books like Birds of Prey ever again. Besides, she's already decidedly given clues she's not exactly a Black Canary fan, if that matters.

Dear dear. That amounts to trolling against Mr. Cotton. Not very ethical, I don't think.

So says somebody who turns her back to far worse, more serious issues.

This is basically online harrassment. Very poor example. Sigh.

And with her startling biases, Simone is the writer whom everybody's going to turn down in sales within time, and those who do read her books will have to take everything she writes with a grain of salt. While we're on the topic, she also wrote:

If she's a fan of Churchill, I wonder what she'll think when she finds out what he said about Islamofascism in The River War? This is some of the most shameful, pointless drivel she's written to date.

ISIS Claims, “British Preacher Anjem Choudary Is An Informer”

Death Comes for the Arch-Imam

From Memri:
On March 10, 2015, an ISIS member calling himself Omar Al-Hussein, who claims to be on his way from Britain to Syria, tweeted that prominent Britain-based jihadi preacher Anjem Choudary was collaborating with the British police and could not be trusted. 
According to Omar Al-Hussein, Choudary was the only one who knew that he and two other friends were planning to travel to Syria. His friends were arrested in their homes just before leaving; the only one who could have betrayed them was Choudary, Omar Al-Hussein said.

Putin Dead?

The Dictator In His Labyrinth
MOSCOW — Where’s Putin? The question obsessed Moscow and much of Russia on Friday, as speculation mounted as to why President Vladimir V. Putin had not been seen in public for more than a week. 
He abruptly canceled a trip to Kazakhstan and postponed a treaty signing with representatives from South Ossetia who were reportedly told not to bother to fly to Moscow. 
Most unusually, he was absent from an annual meeting of the top officials from the F.S.B., Russia’s domestic intelligence service. 
The rumor mill went into overdrive, churning out possible explanations from the simple to the salacious to the sinister. 
He had been stricken by the particularly devastating strain of flu going around Moscow just now. 
He sneaked off to Switzerland for the birth of his love child. He had a stroke. 
The victim of a palace coup, he was imprisoned within the Kremlin. 
He was dead, aged 62. Dmitry S. Peskov, the presidential spokesman, treated all the health questions with a certain wry humor initially, coming up with new and inventive ways to say, “He’s fine.” 
Yet, the fact that the story proved impossible to quash underscored the uneasy mood gripping the Russian capital for months now, an atmosphere in which speculation about the health of just one man can provoke fears about death and succession.

Birmingham Alabama Becomes 1 Of 6 Democrat Controlled Cities As Pilot Site For Federal Policing

From Alabama.com:
Birmingham has been chosen as one of six cities nationwide to serve as a pilot site for a national initiative on restoring relationships between law enforcement and citizens. Attorney General Eric Holder made the announcement today.  
The $4.7 million National Initiative for Building Community Trust and Justice was announced in April and is a partnership between federal officials and criminal justice experts focused on providing training, policy and research to address distrust between citizens and law enforcement. 
The other pilot cities are: Ft. Worth, Gary, Indiana, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and Stockton. The initiative comes after several high profile fatal police-involved shootings. 
“We are truly honored that DOJ would select Birmingham as one of six national pilot sites,” said Birmingham police Chief A.C. Roper. 
“The mayor and I actually started discussing this initiative several months ago and knew there would be over 100 cities vying for the limited opportunities.” 
The Department of Justice started the initiative as part of the My Brother’s Keeper program, which seeks to create opportunities for all young people throughout the country – regardless of background – to improve their lives and reach their full potential. 
“We are always committed to engaging with the community to ensure that we are serving them and hearing their concerns,” Birmingham U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance said in a prepared statement. 
“We want to do a good job of listening, so that we can work together to make the community safe. We appreciate the opportunity to be one of the six pilot sites in this initiative, and the recognition from Washington that we are trying to get it right down here.”

Have Our Political Leaders Purposefully Instigated The Recent Wave of Violence Against Policemen?

An anonymous commenter left this information:

Our political leaders are the instigators of violence in this nation. 

It is no coincidence that two police officers were shot in Ferguson this week, given the video clip at the end of this post...ff 01:35 to see authorities have been aware of threats made to:

"shoot police, FBI, Military" 

...as well as the following:

...as well as the ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh warning revealed by University of Waterloo's Lome Dawson:

ff 2:42 "Until you desist, we will continue to attack you. We will bring the war home to you.At one point he specifically mentions about attacking soldiers, so that is a reference probably to what ISIS had just issued a call just prior to his attack, for individuals in the west to attack soldiers and police officers and things of that nature."

South Yorkshire Police accused of covering up widespread sexual abuse in Sheffield on a scale ‘bigger than Rotherham’

Tony Brookes, a former police constable with 30 years’ service (pictured), claims South Yorkshire Police knew that girls as young as 12-years-old were being raped, abused and assaulted in Sheffield but ignored it

South Yorkshire Police has been accused of ignoring hundreds of reports of sexual abuse against young girls in a widespread cover-up deemed ‘bigger than Rotherham’.
Tony Brookes, a former police constable with 30 years’ service, claims the force knew that girls as young as 12-years-old were being raped and assaulted but chose to ignore it.
It is understood that more than 200 girls were reported to the force as being potential victims of sexual exploitation in Sheffield, mainly between 2007 and 2010.
Mr Brookes, who has now left the force, said he believes the ‘size of the exploitation was massive in Sheffield’, adding: ‘I think bigger than in Rotherham’.

Give Praise To “The God That We Love, Allah” ---UK Anglican Vicar Holds Islamic Prayer Service In His Church

Muslims Say Judas Died On the Cross

From the Daily Mail:
A leading liberal clergyman has come under fire from traditionalist Anglicans after allowing a full Muslim prayer service in his church. 
Reverend Giles Goddard, vicar of St John’s in Waterloo, central London, joined in the event by reading a passage from the Bible at the ‘Inclusive Mosque’ event. 
He then asked the congregation to praise ‘the god that we love, Allah’, it was reported last night. 
It is thought to be the first time an entire Islamic service has been held by the Church of England and has sparked criticism from evangelical clerics. 
Orthodox clergyman said the event was against canon law, which prohibits any divergence from the official liturgy. 
They argued that it could be ‘offensive’ to Christians who are persecuted for their faith. 
Rev Goddard defended his decision to hold the event, describing it as a ‘very moving’ service. 
He said his intention was simply to offer people a ‘place to pray’.

Culturist Policy Article # 1 - Islamic Immigration

Culturism (cǔl-chər-ǐz-əm) n. The philosophy, art, and science that values, promotes and protects majority cultures.

Culturist (cǔl-chər-ǐst) n. 1. An advocate of culturism. 2. One who engages in or supports the art or science of managing and protecting majority cultures. 3. Of or pertaining to culturism, culturists or culturist policy. - adj.

--   --  --   --  --   --   --   --   --  --

Culturist immigration policy calls for an immediately halt all Muslim immigration into western nations.  Cultural differences, history, and recent events justify this position.  We must counter globalist and multiculturalists politicians’ culturally-neutral, open-borders agenda.
Western culture has its roots in Athens (the scientific / secular approach) and Jerusalem (our Judeo-Christian roots).   Both sources of western culture dovetail in esteeming the conscience of the individual.  Democracy and freedom of speech, for example, are rooted in respect for individual’s reasoning capacity.
Islam means ‘Submission.’  Submission herein is not just a matter of establishing a personal relationship with God as the individual sees fit. Muhammad ruled the government and religion at the same time, making theocracy an Islamic ideal.  Thus in Islamic nation after Islamic nation we find either full-blown theocracies or pressure for theocracy. 
Individual conscience and theocracy are incompatible.  Increasing the size of a population that holds values inimical to those of our traditional majority culture erodes and endangers the foundation of our culture.  History and recent events prove that this is not only a theoretical debate; It is a matter of life and death.
Historically, Islam has long been hostile to the West: They took Spain; They took Constantinople; Islam’s western attacks were stopped in France by Charles ‘the Hammer’ Martel in 732; Islam’s eastern advances were halted at the Gates of Vienna in 1683.   Culturists agree with Faulkner’s sentiment - the past is never dead and buried; in fact, it isn’t even past.
Recent terrorist attacks provide all-to-concrete evidence that the past is prologue. 9/11 in New York, the 7/7 London bus bombing, the Madrid train bombing, and the Charlie Hebdo attack are just the peaks of a sustained hum of terror coming from the West’s Islamic population.  We have a right to immigration laws that err on the side of physically protecting our populations.  Politicians who deny this have blood on their hands.
Prohibiting more Muslims from becoming citizens in western nations is not racist – it is culturist.  It would not depend upon whether the Muslim were black, Middle Eastern, white, Asian or Latino.  Religion is cultural, not racial. Cultural diversity is real, therefore culturist policy is rational and justified. Culturist will happily debate any politician who thinks cultural diversity is not real and important.
Those who say this immigration policy violates some ‘universal,’ ‘human rights’ norm are globalists, not culturists.  All non-western nations have culturist or racist immigration laws. Culturists need to ask globalist politicians why only western nations must be held to their ‘globalist,’ ‘human rights’ standard, why we cannot be culturist like other nations.   
Politicians who reject culturist immigration policy because western culture is grounded in religious tolerance must understand that our western Constitutions and laws only protect our western citizens’ freedom of religion.  Our laws are national, not international. A later culturist policy article will discuss domestic freedom of religion. But, our religious tolerance laws do not protect foreign Muslims’ right to immigrate to the West.
Lastly, multiculturalists will object to this proposed immigration policy with their defining beliefs: The West has no core culture to protect; It is a culturally neutral zone where random cultures happen to coincide; the West is just as Hindu and Muslim as it is Christian and secular; we cannot favor any culture or consider any cultural traits in our laws. Culturists affirm that the West is not Islamic; Islam is hostile to the West; and we have a legal right to protect ourselves. 

Because cultural diversity is real, history is important, conflict exists, and our citizens have been harmed, culturist immigration policy would immediately halt all Islamic immigration to western nations.

Islamic State Vows Attacks on White House, Big Ben and Eiffel Tower

YNet News reported:
In new recording, Abu Mohammad al-Adnani rejects claims group suffering setbacks, vows attacks on White House, Big Ben, and Eiffel Tower. 
A spokesperson for the Islamic State militants released a recording claiming the group was not deterred by reports that its forces were forced out of the Iraqi city of Tikrit. 
“The Islamic State will remain, and it is only getting stronger and achieving more victories,” said Abu Mohammad al-Adnani in the recording. He claimed that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi accepted the oath of allegiance by his Boko Haram counterpart and called on Muslims to immigrate to the area. 
The ISIS spokesperson directed several threats towards Jews and Christians, saying they faced two options: “Convert to Islam or pay the ultimate price when your armies are expelled from Muhammad’s peninsula, from Jerusalem, and all Muslim lands.” 
He warned that if Jews and Christians choose a third way – and insist on their current path – they will soon regret their choice and be unable to stop the surge to the caliphate. “The Jews and the Crusaders are scared and weak,” said al-Adnani.

The Pope's Premonition: Francis Has a "Feeling" His "Pontificate Will Be Brief"

My Time Will Be Brief

From AFP:
Vatican City (AFP) - Pope Francis marked the second anniversary of his election on Friday by giving an interview in which he says he expects his time at the Vatican to only last for another two or three years. 
"I have a feeling my pontificate will be brief," the 78-year-old told Mexico's Televisa channel. 
"Four or five years, I don't know. Two years have already gone by. 
"It is a vague feeling I have that the Lord chose me for a short mission. I am always open to that possibility."
I also have a feeling his Pontificate will be brief.

And my feeling corresponds to approximately the same time line ...

... albeit, probably for reasons different than what he expects.

USA: Imam Who Called for Death of Ayaan Hirsi Ali Is Prison Chaplain

An Egyptian born Imam who has publically supported the death penalty for those who choose to leave Islam has since been hired by the Department of Justice to teach Islam in prisons. 
Fouad al-Bayly, the Imam of the Islamic Center of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, said in 2007 that Ayan Hirsi Ali, a Somalian women’s rights activist and fierce critic of Islam, deserves to die for her public attacks on the faith.

Treaty: an official agreement that is made between two or more countries or groups

Constitution- Article 2 Section 2 on the Executive -

He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur;

Maybe I am a simpleton, but the definitions of this world and the wording of the founding document (which the president has told us is “FLAWED”) is utterly clear.

Maybe I expect, as a naif, too MUCH.

Maybe I am a fool to think that those who claim in sound byte after sound byte to want to uphold the Constitution for reasons of upholding our individual rights, actually MEAN what they say,

Ladies and gentlemen, if you cannot act on our behalf, your political parties are USELESS, and you will either be the generation of congress which sees itself recorded in  history as the hinge that saw the door closing on the experiment, by ennui and failure to be vigilant, or you will ACT and uphold what has been passed to you.

Either way the ACTS you commit by action or choosing inaction will decide who and what you are, FOR ALL TIME, and for ALL AMERICANS LIVING AND DEAD.

We see you. The whole world is watching.

Obey the voters of 2014.

Is Obama seeking to bind the USA to a UN-Iran Resolution/Treaty?


I don’t think the Daily SIgnal has gone far enough in their thinking on the consequences of this path.
If an R president, and R Senate and and R House find American law, i.e.-CONSTITUTIONAL PROCESSES have been purposefully violated, we IMMEDIATELY have UN processes asserting superiority over US sovereignty in an undisputed way.

 Tehran has come out “the winner”.     Change of administration does not in any way relieve the next administration from international obligations undertaken by its predecessor in a possible agreement about Iran’s peaceful nuclear program I wish to enlighten the authors that if the next administration revokes any agreement with the stroke of a pen, as they boast, it will have simply committed a blatant violation of international law.

We would all then immediately see a former president as CONNIVING this into being.
Since a new govt here which held 2 branches of govt WOULD ACT, and void the resolution by an act of Congress, and then see it signed into American Law, this would immediately END the validity of any UN resolution as binding on ANY nation.
Any democrat speaking in favor of allowing UN sovereignty over American would INSTANTLY feel the results. This would (as everything this president has done) establish a divide in the USA of those FAVORING submission of US LAW, THE CONSTITUTION ITSELF IN THIS CASE, TO INTERNATIONAL LAW and those who reject the entire idea of the UN as having lead to this fateful divide.
But the practical results would CERTAINLY FREE Iran from anything but military force since no UN resolution or sanction would bind it, and they would KNOW IT, having seen the USA crush this, and certainly Rus and China would work with them unless a president made it clear this was all leading to war, and maybe even then.

There is a large argument going on as to whether this administration is incompetent/naive (as the Obamacare-State Exchange SCOTUS case, wording argues) or purposefully destructive to the idea of America as NEARLY every president has seen it (as the support for the Muslim Brotherhood EVERYWHERE argues VERY EFFECTIVELY).

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani described his country’s diplomacy with the United States as an active “jihad” that is just as significant to Tehran’s advancement as the slew of new weapons and missiles showcased by the Islamic Republic’s military.

If these people in the Administration are THIS STUPID I have nothing to say except we get the govt we deserve. If they are right and we do NOTHING in the face of this executive effort to VOID THE VOTES OF THE PEOPLE VIA FOREIGN ENTANGLEMENTS, it’s all over here here and the void in moral force, morale, and patriotism in this nation will see an astonishingly rapid decline.

Obama’s Surrender to Iran

The article below discusses the fact that it appears as if Obama is handing over Middle Eastern nations to the control of Islamists.

Towards the latter part of the article, it points out those who seem to oppose Obama's plans at this point.

It names three individuals/nations:

1) Putin

2) Iranian Islamic Republic

3) Old Guard Nations, specifically Saudi

Isn't it interesting that the King of Saudi Arabia died six weeks ago, and in the past two days, rumors are flying that both Khameini and Putin have died.

It's almost like that scene in the Godfather, where Michael Corleone settles all family business.

Obama’s Surrender to Iran
It is becoming increasingly clear that Obama’s agenda in the Middle East is to help the Islamists regain the land they once controlled but lost in 1924 with the fall of the Ottoman Empire.
The Arab Spring was not a movement to replace ruthless dictators with democratic governments. It was an Islamic movement to replace secular governments with Islamic ones.
Step by step, this administration is helping to establish the Islamists’ dream of a revived caliphate, or “Pan Arabic Islamic Union” as it has been called by Islamist leaders recently. 
There is a mistaken school of thought that believes such an Islamic Union would function like an Arabic European Union, growing their economies and enabling them to take their place among the other nations of the world as equals. 
This school neglects to answer the most salient question: How do you contain a movement that recognizes no borders but its own and is compelled by dint of faith to dominate the rest of the world or die in the effort? 
Unfortunately, the primary opposition to this plan isn’t coming from the American people. Sadly, much of America is suffering from confusion, ignorance, self-loathing and a dedication to bending over backwards in an attempt to avoid the confrontation that looms ahead. 
Rather than marshaling a strong core of support for the hard choices that must be made, our administration is creating a huge chasm between citizens over trivialities and over-amplified slights. We are far weaker for it. 
One might ask then, who is opposing the mighty President of the United States? Who dares stand in the way of the Nobel Peace prize winner “Barack Obama?” 
The answer will be something of a shock to many. 
In no particular order, listed below are those who are arrayed against the designs of our “Dear Leader.” 
Standing most prominently, is Vladimir Putin, the Russian bear. Putin has designs on the former Soviet satellite nations and he needs a strong economy and the leverage that an oil monopoly over the European market provides to fuel his aspirations. 
His Ukraine adventure is proving more troublesome than originally thought, and Obama’s push to topple Assad in Syria threatens Putin’s access to a warm water port for Russia’s oil exports to Europe. 
The Russian oligarchs are growing restive under the thumb of Putin, seeing his dreams of Sovietus revivivus as bad for business and potentially catastrophic. Putin’s leash is shortening, and his tenure is by no means a sure thing. 
While Putin remains in power, he will oppose Obama’s Ottoman revival. He has no choice. 
Old Guard and Monarchies of the Middle East 
Next are the old guard and monarchies of the Middle East. We like to call them “dictators” even though in reality, while they are all Sunni Muslims, they are more concerned with maintaining their own wealth and power than in recreating an Islamic caliphate. 
Among these were Gaddafi, Mubarak and the others deposed in the Arab Spring, but also numbered in this groups is the Hashemite kingdom of Jordan and both Saudi Arabia and the Emirates.All are in danger of being ejected from this game. But just like Putin, they will not go bloodlessly. 
Islamic Republic 
The final player is also the strongest: Iran. 
Iran, a Shiite nation, is a natural enemy to any Sunni Islamic caliphate system. The Iranian rulers know from Islamic history (the same history we completely ignore here in the West) that any Sunni caliphate will soon swallow and erase the Shi’a, destroying all opponents to their well-established ideals of Islamic religious and political structure. 
Iran, therefore, needs nuclear weapons to protect itself should it fail to derail Obama’s ambitious plans. Should the Pan Arabic (Sunni) Islamic Union become a reality, the Iranian rulers believe that having the capability of ushering in Armageddon will keep the Sunni’s at bay. 
At the very least, the Mullahs in Iran rest better knowing, should they fall, that they can take everyone else down with them. Think “mutually-assured destruction.” A sort of “MAD” amongst madmen. 
Don’t let this apocalyptic scenario, however, lead you to think that Iran is going quietly into oblivion. On the contrary, it has tirelessly worked to thwart Obama’s plans. 
Iran’s use of terror and terror proxies is on the upswing. It will distract and misdirect, strike and cajole, but it will not permit a Sunni caliphate to appear on its border without a nuclear capability of its own to deter Sunni adventurism. 
Obama’s setbacks in Syria and Benghazi have forced him to negotiate with the Iranians. He wants to assure them that they have nothing to fear from a caliphate, while simultaneously keeping the American people from recognizing the monumentally stupid policy objective he is pursuing. 
To this end, he tells us he has gotten Iran to agree to postpone its nuclear work for ten years, under the ridiculously naive idea that the dynamics of the Middle East will have changed. 
Many believe Obama is in fact a Muslim. In reality, that really doesn’t matter.His administration believes that all conflict can be framed in Marxist terms. Empower those who have little and they will join the community with smiles and slaps on the back. 
The administration fundamentally misunderstands the problem and is applying a solution akin to gasoline on a grease fire.Economics are unimportant to the Islamists. Power is their currency and they spend all they have to purchase the world for Allah. The establishment of an Islamic caliphate will not calm the Arab street, it will invigorate it to greater conquests, as Islam demands. 
Of course, in the eyes of the neo-progressives in the White House, to speak truthfully about this “Islamophobia.” 
To Obama, a nuclear Iran is an acceptable trade-off for a revived caliphate, To Israel, however, both Iran and a caliphate are threats to their very existence. 
Iran with a nuclear weapon has no reason not to make good on its long-standing promise to “wipe Israel from the face of the earth.” A reconstituted caliphate modeled after the former Ottoman Empire has no room for Israel, indeed, on Iran’s maps, Israel doesn’t exist at all. 
America is negotiating nuclear policy with a terrorist state, and geopolitical hegemony with an ideology/religion that knows no borders but its own. 
In 2013, President Obama told us we can all take a deep breath, he was able to wring an invaluable concession out of the Iranians. He breathlessly announced that Iran had issued a fatwa against nuclear weapons. 
It appeared that we had been brought back from the brink by the president’s keen ability to negotiate. Notwithstanding the obvious (and wholly inappropriate) grandstanding by the POTUS, there are a few other issues that need to be addressed in relation to this irrelevant fatwa. 
Most Americans aren’t aware that the foundation of Iran’s nuclear program was laid on March 5th, 1957 by the United States, under an Eisenhower program called “Atoms for Peace.” Iran established the Tehran Nuclear Research Center (TNRC) in 1967, which was a 5 megawatt nuclear research reactor, fueled by enriched uranium. 
In 1968, Iran signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) ratifying it in 1970, making Iran’s nuclear program subject to International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) verification and accountability. 
Following the 1979 Revolution, nearly all international nuclear cooperation with Iran was cut off. With little hope of regaining international cooperation, Iran elected to continue the program on their own, although they thought it best to save face and attempt to “shame” America (and by extension its advanced nuclear technology) by condemning all things nuclear. 
It was for this reason and this reason alone, that the fatwa was issued. It had nothing to do with any humanitarian interests held deeply in the hearts of Iranian leaders; they are certainly more than amenable to any method that allows them to more efficiently eliminate their enemies, most especially Israel. 
The anti-nuclear fatwa, is fully revealed to be a sham five years later, when we see the destruction of a reputedly “non-existent” Iranian nuclear program by Iraqi forces. 
All of this is still occurring under the reign of the same Ayatollah that issued the nuclear fatwa a brief five years previous. Clearly, the Iranians had continued their nuclear program, despite the fatwa.The next time we saw any reference to the 1979 “nuclear fatwa” was in 2003. The IAEA issued a report, condemning the Iranian nuclear program, accusing it of once again, trying to weaponize the technology. 
Still, Iran didn’t budge. It wasn’t until the U.S. threatened to get involved militarily (the full might and power of the U.S. military was on display right next door in Iraq under the leadership of President Bush) that the Iranians finally caved.What did this concession look like? Well, as you might have guessed, Iran simply reaffirmed the old stand-by fatwa from 1979, condemning nuclear weapons and promising to play nice. 
So, for the record, we have clear evidence that the Iranians consider their anti-nuclear fatwa to be toilet paper, so Obama’s “concession” is more enabling than disarming. Iran had cast the ‘79 fatwa out again in 2013, hoping we’ll bite on it one more time. Obama readily obliged. 
President Obama appears willing to do whatever it takes to build his legacy on reestablishing the Islamic state after an 80 year absence. He also appears willing to endanger both the United States and Israel to get it done.European colonization didn’t create terrorists; Islam and Mohammed birthed terrorism in order to spread a brutal and unforgiving ideology. 
Absent European intervention, Muslims might yet be centuries further behind than they already are. Islam is a crippling force. Science has never been particularly important to the Islamists.European contact brought Muslim countries out of the Stone Age; the same stone age to which the Islamic jihad intends to return us all.

ISIS reportedly accepts allegiance from Boko Haram

Rumor had it, ISIS would not accept because the members of ISIS don't like black people.

Guess they'll do anything to extend their caliphate.

From AP:
BEIRUT (AP) — The spokesman for Islamic State militants said Thursday that the extremist group has accepted the pledge of allegiance by West Africa's Boko Haram group. 
In an audio recording released by the group's media arm Al-Furqan, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani claimed the pledge of allegiance meant that the caliphate has now expanded to West Africa. 
The recording was released a few days after an audio recording from Boko Haram leader Abubakar Sheka posted online Saturday in which he pledged allegiance to IS. 
Al-Adnani also urged foreign fighters from around the world to migrate and join Boko Haram. 
Boko Haram killed an estimated 10,000 people last year, and it is blamed for last April's abduction of more than 275 schoolgirls. 
In August, Boko Haram followed the lead of IS in declaring an Islamic caliphate in northeast Nigeria that grew to cover an area the size of Belgium. 
The Islamic State had declared a caliphate in vast swaths of territory that it controls in Iraq and Syria. Boko Haram is waging a nearly 6-year insurgency to impose Muslim Shariah law in Nigeria. It began launching attacks across the border into Cameroon earlier this year, and then struck in Niger and Chad.

Hillary Clinton to Ground Control, 
I'm Stepping Through The Door, 
And I Think My Spaceship Knows Which Way To Go

What the fuck? That's beyond the StupidEvil that I already expect of Clinton:
How did Hillary Clinton know that the tens of thousands of emails from her time in office she ordered destroyed were personal? Did she or even her staff scroll through her sent items scanning emails about "yoga routines" or "family vacations" before deleting them? 
Nope. No one looked at them. 
The Clinton campaign said those emails that did not crop up in a keyword search performed by her team were automatically deleted. No eyes. No one to be subpoenaed. Just highlight all and press delete. 
That method seems better for missing emails than to finding them. And it would sound reckless and haphazard coming from another politician. In this case, though it sounds like a woman covering her tracks in preparation for a long and bloody legal fight over subpoenas to come.  
"For more than a year after she left office in 2013, she did not transfer work-related email from her private account to the State Department. She commissioned a review of the 62,320 messages in her account only after the department–spurred by the congressional investigation–asked her to do so. 
And this review did not involve opening and reading each email; instead, Clinton’s lawyers created a list of names and keywords related to her work and searched for those. 
Slightly more than half the total cache–31,830 emails–did not contain any of the search terms, according to Clinton’s staff, so they were deemed to be 'private, personal records.'"
