That's all he can say about the Chattanooga jihad attack?

The awful Ron Marz is exploiting the horrible tragedy in Tennessee this week for more superficial critiques of firearms:

Notice for starters how he doesn't actually take the time to condemn the jihadist himself and the ISIS terrorists who were supporting him. Nor does he offer his condolences to the families of the victims, a 5th who tragically died earlier today. Then, notice how he apparently sees nothing wrong with army officials not being allowed to carry weapons. Soon, I guess police shouldn't be allowed to carry them either? That's been the case in Britain at times, and it did lead to some terrible losses.

He also shows neither interest nor concern about the killer's ideological upbringing, and again, all he can think of doing is blabbering about gun control. Yeah, keep it up, young master Marz. It's always weapons alone that are the problem, and never education or ideology.

Interestingly, Marz is the only comics writer I could find who had anything to say about the attack in Tennessee. Almost all others were strangely quiet. But maybe that's a good thing, because they may have realized they could screw up badly, as Marz did with his dreadful comments.

Deal With Iran Serves Iran's Interests

So declares the Ayatollah.

From CNN:

Iran's Supreme Leader vows no change in relations with 'arrogant' United States

(CNN)Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed Saturday that a newly negotiated deal on his country's nuclear program would not alter Iran's policies toward the United States.

In a televised address marking the start of Eid al-Fitr, the festival that follows the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Khamenei said the agreement signed Tuesday on the nuclear issue would not affect Iran's stance on other regional or bilateral matters.

"Our policies toward the arrogant government of the United States will not be changed at all," he said.

Khamenei said the negotiations with the United States and other world powers on Tehran's nuclear program were an exception because they served Iran's national interest.
Nevertheless, Obama continues his "campaign" to gain support for the deal struck with Iran.

In fact, the White House Weekly Address of July 18, 2015, presents the Liar-in-Chief's "persuasive argument":

Listen to him brag about how nobody but him has ever been able to solve the problem with Iran.

Like everything else that the Traitor-in-Chief engineers since taking office, he'll get his way.  Congress will fold.

Furthermore, the GOP will campaign on promises of nullifying the deal.


Scuttling Iran deal might not be easy for next president.

We'll have to burn down the forest....

Alfred Pennyworth: A long time ago, I was in Burma. My friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. So, we went looking for the stones. But in six months, we never met anybody who traded with him. One day, I saw a child playing with a ruby the size of a tangerine. The bandit had been throwing them away.
Bruce Wayne: So why steal them?
Alfred Pennyworth: Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

Bruce Wayne: The bandit, in the forest in Burma, did you catch him?
Alfred Pennyworth: Yes.
Bruce Wayne: How?
Alfred Pennyworth: We burned the forest down.

Angela Merkel Explains That Islam Belongs In Germany

All Western Leaders - other than Stephen Harper - are complicit in the Jihad invasion of the Western world.

How could such a situation come about - where every single leader makes the same kinds of suicidal decisions - if there were not some sort of supra-national collusion going on behind the scenes?

Did we elect these people?

Yes, we did.

Did we know, when we elected them, that they intended to give our national heritage away to Islam?


Except for us Americans. We knew. Barack Obama has told us over and over again that he favors Islam in America and the Western world. We Americans are just that stupid. We elected the scum anyway.

Europe, which is steeped in the history of the Islamic invasion - leading ultimately to the Expulsion of the Moors from the Iberian Peninsula - is not without understanding.

The Europeans simply do not have a vote.

Angela Merkel does not serve the people of Germany.

"Cub of the Caliphate": ISIS Films Child Beheading a Man

Depraved jihadis fighting for the Islamic State have forced a young child to savagely behead a Syrian regime army officer in the first execution of its kind.
The sickening murder is understood to have taken at the Western Hir Palace in the province of Homs after the soldier was captured by jihadis at the nearby Al-Bosayri army checkpoint.
The unnamed officer is believed to have been a regime leader in the ancient city of Palmyra, which ISIS captured in May and have since set about about systematically destroying as they believe the city’s several millennia-old buildings and monuments distract from the worship of God.
ISIS have increasingly used young boys in their gruesome executions, with some children no older than 12 being forced to shoot the terror group’s opponents at point blank range. However using a child to carry out a brutal beheading with a knife is a sickening new low for ISIS.

What about the Americans held hostage in Iran?

Give Major Garret at CBS some credit for asking Obama about the 4 Americans held captive in Iran, and why they aren't accounted for in this so-called deal (Hat tip: Diana West):
Transcription of exchange between CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett and President Obama over Iranian hostages.

Major Garrett: As you well know, there are four Americans in Iran - three held on trumped up charges according to your administration, one, whereabouts unknown. Can you tell the country, sir, why you are content, with all of the fanfare around this [nuclear] deal, to leave the conscience of this nation, the strength of this nation, unaccounted for, in relation to these four Americans?
Indeed, how come they don't seem to be a prime concern? Obama's answer is like this:
And last week, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said under no circumstances should there be any relief for Iran in terms of ballistic missiles or conventional weapons. It was perceived that that was a last-minute capitulation in these negotiations, making the Pentagon feel you've left the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff hung out to dry. Could you comment?

President Obama: I've got to give you credit, Major, for how you craft those questions. The notion that I am content, as I celebrate with American citizens languishing in Iranian jails - Major, that's nonsense. And you should know better. I've met with the families of some of those folks. Nobody's content, and our diplomats and our teams are working diligently to try to get them out.

Now, if the question is why we did not tie the negotiations to their release, think about the logic that that creates. Suddenly, Iran realizes, you know what, maybe we can get additional concessions out of the Americans by holding these individuals - makes it much more difficult for us to walk away if Iran somehow thinks that a nuclear deal is dependent in some fashion on the nuclear deal. And by the way, if we had walked away from the nuclear deal, we'd still be pushing just as hard to get these folks out. That's why those issues are not connected, but we are working every single day to try to get them out and won't stop until they're out and rejoined with their families.
I can't seem to understand anything he says. If they really wanted to free the hostages, they'd be demanding Iran release them and ensure they make it across the borders safely, and only afterwards give them any deal. But apparently, that's not what was done, and it only makes the whole pact look all the more awful as it truly is.

See How Peaceful We Muslims Are? Look, I'm Even Smiling

TimesFreePress: Muslim teens seek acceptance, understanding 
November 15th, 2010
Quotes from suspects sister:
"University of Tennessee at Chattanooga freshman Yasmeen Abdulazeez, 17, was told by a professor that he would lower her grade when she asked to miss class for a religious holiday. She dropped the class instead."..."Abdulazeez, who has worn the head covering since she was a child, said she has experienced many problems as a result. A referee during a volleyball tournament refused to allow her to play because of her headscarf."..."Before graduating from Red Bank High School, Abdulazeez said some of the students would harass her. She said she saw that as an opportunity to dispel misconceptions about her faith.

"I'm not afraid to go straight toward them and ask them, 'Do you really know what Islam is?' " Abdulazeez said. "There's this misconception that Islam is a violent religion. Muslims are actually peaceful."

BREAKING: Multiple Shots Fired In Chattanooga On The Armed Forces Career Center AND Navy Recruitment Center


From Reuters:
There have been shootings at multiple places in Chattanooga, including near a U.S. Army Reserve center and a Navy recruiting center in the Tennessee city on Thursday, and a police officer was hit by gunfire, officials and local media reports said.

There have been several shootings at several different locations," said Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman John Harmon. "It's a fluid situation," said Harmon, whose agency was helping local authorities.

"We've got an officer down," Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke told reporters, calling it a "very terrible situation."

The U.S. Navy said it was investigating a report of a shooting at a Navy recruiting center in Chattanooga....
An eyewitness, a woman who states that she was 10 feet away from shooter, is saying that she was "a white guy in a silver Mustang." No tags on the car. The shooter was using a "high-powered rifle."

The photo that I'm seeing on CNN is showing at least 18 bullet holes in the doors of the Navy Reserve Recruiting Station, which is in a strip mall.

There is also an unconfirmed report of a man driving a black BMW firing on the other location.

The two sites fired upon are 7.5 miles apart.

CNN's ongoing coverage is HERE.

Addendum 1: Chattanooga Police are Tweeting out that the active shooter situation is resolved. News conference coming in a few minutes.

Addendum 2: According to reports on CNN, the shooter is dead. Buildings still remain on lock down, however.

Addendum 3: Four Marines injured [UPDATE: MARINES KILLED]. Chattanooga City Police officer wounded, but not seriously.

Addendum 4: Lock downs have ended. There are reports that the shooter and/or the police fired 100 rounds and that there was a shootout between the shooter and the police - with the end coming with two shots at the shooter after he fled into the woods of the big park in that part of Chattanooga.


UPDATE, with thanks to Anonymous for tips:

Police sources are saying that the shooter's name was Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.

From Heavy.com:
He Was a Naturalized U.S. Citizen Originally From Kuwait.

An ISIS-Affiliated Account Tweeted #Chattanooga Just Before the Shooting Occurred Along With a Warning to Americans.
Read the rest HERE.

Furthermore and apparently:

Youssuf Abdullazeez was appointed as a special policeman for the City of Chattanooga Department of Public Works according to this City Council resolution.

Screen shot (Click on the image to enlarge it):


The screen shot may be in error. See Point 3 HERE.

Heavy.com now has this information:
Abdulazeez graduated from the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga in 2012, according to posts on his mother’s Facebook page and a resume posted on Indeed.com.

He graduated with a degree in electrical engineering. He worked from April 2009 to April 2010 as an intern with the Tennessee Valley Authority. He also had internships at Mohawk Industries and Global Trade Express.

CBS News incorrectly reported that he was an employee of the city of Chattanooga.

Politically Correct AI: Siri Auto-Correcting People Who Ask About Bruce Jenner To “Caitlyn”

From People Magazine:
The last time Siri was in the news, it was because Apple’s AI was just straight-up insulting people who asked it a question it thought was stupid. But we’re happy to report that Siri’s got a progressive streak. 
An intrepid Tumblr user noted that Siri has begun correcting people who refer to Caitlyn Jenner as “Bruce,” the name she used before transitioning from male to female this year. 
And if you ask Siri, “What gender is Bruce Jenner?” Siri tells you “The answer is female.”
Increasingly there is little to no difference between robots like Siri and the PC automatons we are surrounded by in American society.

Morocco: Video of Muslim 'Worshippers' Frightened Out of Their Minds, Running Away From a Mouse

I know you won't believe this, so here, read the news story first:
Rabat – A mouse is said to have caused panic among hundreds of worshippers who were attending Taraweeh (post-Isha) prayers in the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca on Monday night, causing upheaval among those in attendance. 
Hundreds of worshippers began shouting and screaming as they rushed outside the mosque after hearing screams from women’s area. 
Ok, now behold, here's the video:

It's utter pandemonium in the streets.

One wonders how a mouse could cause such chaos?

If this happened in a church, some women would scream, and people would rush out of aisles, and crowd to the side. Meanwhile, a group of men would assemble and attempt to corner the mouse and ease it out of the sanctuary.

That's how things work in the society in which I live.

But in Morocco, it's hundreds of people running back and forth screaming like a pack of monkeys in the streets.

Like out of a comedy film.

What the fuck?

Is it superstition that drives such a reaction. Did the mouse suddenly become a giant Djinn in the minds of the terrified followers of the moody moon god, Allah?

Or is it the quite reasonable expectation of Jihad breaking out anywhere and any time? Is it more of that behavior which has NOTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM, that always seems to follow Islam anywhere it goes in the world?

What do you think?

G. Willow Wilson sugarcoats Iran

The propagandist now working for Marvel has come out in favor of Iran, completely whitewashing their autocracy:

And when somebody asks if US citizens can get tourist visas, she says:

Who would want to visit a country ruled by sharia? A country where women have no rights and where dissidents with the regime were subjected to torture and rape? Betty Mahmoody was very lucky she managed to flee with her daughter Mahtob from that hellhole back at the time the ayatollah was viciously running the country. Jimmy Carter sure caused a lot of disaster when he turned his back on the country in 1979 and allowed the shah to be overthrown by the much worse ayatollah Khomeini.

Among the various other issues Wilson's oblivious to include Americans held hostage in Iran, who apparently aren't part of the deal made. No amount of green lawns and flower gardens will conceal how the Islamic mindset dominating the country makes it a truly awful place to be. Wilson's sugarcoating of those facts is shameful. Why would any sane American want to get a tourist visa to a country where they could be imperiled just for thinking negatively about the autocracy?

Wolf Blitzer made Susan Rice look silly on the faustian deal. Wilson looks silly just by acting ignorant.

UK: Jewish PIer Organizes Rescue Mission For Christians in Syria and Iraq

A "Peer" is a member of the House of Lords, the upper body of UK's Parliament.

Lord Weidenfeld is funding a rescue mission of up to 2,000 Christian families from Syria and Iraq.
Weidenfeld’s Safe Havens Fund flew 150 Syrian Christians who were fleeing Daesh (sometimes known as Isis) to Warsaw on Friday to seek refuge in Poland.
But the project has faced criticism over Lord Weidenfeld’s decision not to include Muslims in the rescue effort.
The United States refused to take part and other countries made claims of discrimination.
Funding was also given by other Jewish philanthropists and charitable groups such as the JNF, and aims to offer 12 to 18 months of support to the refugees.
Lord Weidenfeld defended the project and said: “I can’t save the world, but there is a very specific possibility on the Jewish and Christian side.
“Let others do what they like for the Muslims.”

Minnesota National Guardswoman experienced discrimination

A fishy incident occurred in Minnesota:
A spokesperson for SuperAmerica says the company is calling an alleged incident of discrimination at a store location in Minneapolis, near the Bloomington border, a "misunderstanding."

A member of the military is accusing employees at the SA on Post Road of denying her service on Sunday, reportedly because her uniform was offensive to taxi drivers who regularly do business there.

The story blew up on social media Tuesday, with many expressing outrage at the allegations. The incident was first reported Sunday afternoon by Dave Boucha, on his Facebook page. Boucha has since deleted his original post.

KARE 11 reached out to SuperAmerica Tuesday afternoon, and at that time a spokesperson told the station that they will investigate the allegations thoroughly. That spokesperson also said training on discrimination will be mandatory for all employees at that location.
Could those unnamed taxi drivers be Muslims? It's possible, recalling that there were cases of Muslim cabbies in Minnesota who refused service to blind riders with seeing eye dogs. Now they're turning their petty hostilities against army personnel too. The store staff who abetted their disgraceful attitudes should be ashamed of themselves.

Netanyahu defiant in face of isolation after Iran deal

He's got the right Man on his side:
Jerusalem (AFP) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suffered a major defeat in failing to stop a nuclear deal with Iran but he remains as defiant as ever even at the risk of further isolation. 
While the world's major powers welcomed the deal finalised with Iran on Tuesday as a historic moment capable of setting relations with the Islamic republic on a new path, Netanyahu harshly condemned it. 
For the 65-year-old savvy rightwing prime minister, the agreement was a "stunning, historic mistake." He stressed Israel would not be bound by the deal and -- again signalling that military force was not off the table -- said the country would "always defend ourselves." 
On Wednesday, he declared that the agreement was "not the end of the story." "We are going to continue to denounce the danger in reaching an agreement with a dictatorial regime," he said. 
Netanyahu argues that the deal will not block Iran's path to nuclear weapons that could be used to target the Jewish state and says the lifting of sanctions will allow it to further support proxy militants in the Middle East. 
While he has angered US President Barack Obama by appearing before Congress in Washington to argue against the agreement, there is wide support for Netanyahu's stand among his political allies in Israel.

Reuters: Saudi media attack Iran deal as assault on Arab interests Riyadh's official reaction to the deal was a terse statement that welcomed any agreement that would ensure Iran could not develop a nuclear arsenal, but stressed the importance of tough inspections and the ability to reimpose sanctions quickly.
In private, however, Saudi officials fear an Iran released from international pressure and economic sanctions will have more freedom and money to back allies across the region who are opposed by Riyadh.

From Front Page Magazine:
The last time a feeble leader of a fading nation came bearing “Peace in our time,” a pugnacious controversial right-winger retorted, “You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war.” That right-winger went on to lead the United Kingdom against Hitler. 
The latest worthless agreement with a murderous dictatorship is being brandished by John Kerry, a man who instinctively seeks out dishonor the way a pig roots for truffles. 
John Kerry betrayed his uniform and his nation so many times that it became his career. He illegally met with the representatives of the North Vietnamese enemy in Paris and then next year headed to Washington, D.C. where he blasted the American soldiers being murdered by his new friends as rapists and murderers “reminiscent of Genghis Khan.” 
Even before being elected, Kerry was already spewing Communist propaganda in the Senate. Once in the Senate, Kerry flew to support the Sandinista Marxist killers in Nicaragua. 
Just as Iran’s leader calling for “Death to America” didn’t slow down Kerry, neither did the Sandinista cries of “Here or There, Yankees Will Die Everywhere.” Kerry revolted even liberals with his gushing over Syria’s Assad. Now he’s playing the useful idiot for Assad’s bosses in Tehran. 
For almost fifty years, John Kerry has been selling out American interests to the enemy. Iran is his biggest success. The dirty Iran nuke deal is the culmination of his life’s many treasons. It turns America from an opponent of Iran’s expansionism, terrorism and nuclear weapons program into a key supporter. 
The international coalition built to stop Iran’s nukes will instead protect its program. And none of this would have happened without Obama. 
Obama began his rise by pandering to radical leftists on removing Saddam. He urged them to take on Egypt instead, and that’s what he did once in office, orchestrating the takeover of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and across the region. 
The Muslim Brotherhood was overthrown by popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, but Obama had preserved the Iranian regime when it was faced with the Green Revolution. 
Now Iran is his last best Islamist hope for stopping America in the Middle East. Obama and Kerry had both voted against designating Iran’s IRGC terrorist ringleaders who were organizing the murder of American soldiers as a terrorist organization while in the Senate. 
Today they have turned our planes into the Air Force of the IRGC’s Shiite Islamist militias in Iraq. Throughout the process they chanted, “No deal is better than a bad deal.” But their deal isn’t just bad. It’s treason. 
Obama isn’t Chamberlain. He doesn’t mean well. Kerry isn’t making honest mistakes. They negotiated ineptly with Iran because they are throwing the game. They meant for America to lose all along. 
When Obama negotiates with Republicans, he extracts maximum concessions for the barest minimum. Kerry did the same thing with Israel during the failed attempt at restarting peace negotiations with the PLO. That’s how they treat those they consider their enemies. This is how they treat their friends. 
A bad deal wasn’t just better than no deal, it was better than a good deal.

10th Circuit to Little Sisters of the Poor: Comply with contraception mandate

From the Beckett Fund:
Moments ago, in a departure from the U.S. Supreme Court’s protection of the Little Sisters of the Poorlast year, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit ruled that the Little Sisters must comply with the government’s HHS mandate. This mandate forces religious ministries to violate their faith or pay massive IRS penalties … 
The Tenth Circuit heard oral argument in this case December of last year, when for the first time since the case began, Sr. Loraine Marie Maguire, Mother Provincial of the Little Sisters of the Poor, delivered a public statement on the case (see statement here). 
Today the Tenth Circuit ruled that government can force the Little Sisters to either violate their faith or pay massive IRS penalties. 
The court held that participating in the government’s contraception delivery scheme is “as easy as obtaining a parade permit, filing a simple tax for, or registering to vote” and that although the Sisters sincerely believe that participating in the scheme “make[s] them complicit in the overall delivery scheme,” the court “ultimately rejects the merits of this claim,” because the court believes the scheme relieves [the Little Sisters] from complicity.” 
The Little Sisters and their attorneys are closely reviewing the court’s decision and will decide soon whether they must seek relief from the Supreme Court. 
“We will keep on fighting for the Little Sisters, even if that means having to go all the way to the Supreme Court,” said Daniel Blomberg, Counsel at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty. 
The Court’s order similarly harms Christian Brothers Services and Christian Brothers Employee Benefit Trust, the Catholic ministries through which the Little Sisters obtain their health coverage.

NYPost: ‘Arrogant’ Dinesh D’Souza has to do way more community service than he thought, ordered into Psychological Counseling

All the guy did was contribute too much money ($20,000) to a political campaign:
The government charged Mr. D’Souza with illegally arranging to have two people — an employee and a woman with whom he was romantically involved — donate $10,000 each to the campaign of an old friend from Dartmouth College, Wendy E. Long, with the understanding that he would reimburse them in cash for their contributions. Ms. Long was challenging Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand, a Democrat.

NYPost: ‘Arrogant’ Dinesh D’Souza has to do way more community service than he thought

Powerhouse defense attorney Ben Brafman was surprised when Manhattan federal court Judge Richard Berman clarified the sentence he handed down after D’Souza pleaded guilty last year, which means D’Souza will have to do over 1,600 hours more service than he initially thought.

“We’re talking about five years of eight hours a week? …


On May 31, he was released from nightly detention at a work-release center in San Diego after eight months. During that time, in fulfillment of his community service requirement, he taught English once a week to Spanish-speaking applicants for American citizenship. Berman ruled Monday he must continue for another four years the community-service portion of his sentence.

WND: Dem judge orders psych counseling for D’Souza
“I only insisted on psychological counseling as part of Mr. D’Souza’s sentence because I wanted to be helpful,” the judge explained. “I am requiring Mr. D’Souza to see a new psychological counselor and to continue the weekly psychological consultation not as part of his punishment or to be retributive.
...The judge noted the psychologists “chart indicates Mr. D’Souza tends to deny problems, that he lacks insight into his own behavior, that he is arrogant and intolerant of the feelings of others, while projecting an overly positive image of himself.”

“Therefore, I am ordering Mr. D’Souza to continue psychological counseling with another therapist,” said Berman.

Iran’s “Moderate” President Gloats Over His Nuke Deal With Obama: The “Usurper Zionist Regime” Has “Failed” To Stop Our Nuclear Program

From the Jerusalem Post:
Toward the end of an address to the the Iranian people on state television, Rouhani takes a jab at Israel, saying that the Jewish state had “failed” in its attempts to stop the country’s nuclear project. 
“Today people in Lebanon and Palestine are happy because Zionists have tried to block this deal but failed,” Rouhani says. 
“Do not be deceived by the propaganda of the usurper Zionist regime,” he notes, adding that “the Zionist state has failed in its efforts” to obstruct the deal and Iran’s nuclear program.

Planned Parenthood Director Caught On Tape Trying To Sell “Body Parts” Of Aborted Babies

From Live Action News:
An undercover video recorded by the non-profit organization, Center for Medical Progress, shows Planned Parenthood Federation Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, discussing their fetal parts business. 
Nucatola is seen in the video having lunch with actors posing as buyers who are interested in purchasing the body parts of babies who have been aborted. 
The Planned Parenthood senior staffer notes how abortion procedures are modified to ensure that requested body parts can be collected. 
She says: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.” 
Nucatola also describes how Planned Parenthood abortionists move the preborn child into a breech delivery position so that the body can be preserved. 
This account is an almost exact medical description of partial-birth abortions which are illegal in the United States. 
In the video, Nucatola describes the procedure: “I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps. 
“The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium—the head—is basically the biggest part. … “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact. And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex. … 
“So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.”

Church Of England Declares Holy War On Islam Global Warming

Photograph of Vicar Contemplating, 
"What Would It Feel Like If I Shoved This Thing Up My Ass?"

I have come to believe "Global Warming" really is the biggest threat to mankind.

That is, the belief that there is such a thing as Anthropogenic Global Warming, and that it can be controlled by destroying Capitalism, is indeed the worst threat we face today.

This belief against all reason is most certainly even worse than Islam.

The Pope and the leaders of the Church of England are a disgrace to the name of Christ. They are not followers of Christ. They are followers of Marx and of power. The combination of Marx and Power is far more destructive than the Jihad itself.

Our world if fucked beyond comprehension.

If an organization comes along of some size, and with financial backing, who will support a war on these Islamists and Leftist,s count me in.

I am ready to kill every single one of these people, if I have to rip their brains out through their eye sockets.
Leaders of the Church of England declared yesterday (Mon) that fighting climate change is a holy duty. They called for a new generation of vicars to be trained in ‘ecotheology’ as well as the Bible and ‘eco-justice’ alongside Christian ethics. 
Churchgoers are to be encouraged to skip lunch on the first day of every month in a fast against climate change after the General Synod, the CofE’s parliament, adopted a wholesale programme of green activism. 
It backed a motion which said creation is holy and the Church is ‘called to protect the earth now and for the future’. 
It called on governments around the world to limit the global rise in temperatures to no more than two degrees celsius. 
The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev Justin Welby, said the CofE faithful must set an example to others. 
He suggested the Synod could make the gesture of using less paper and that its members might cut back on their travel.

Other speakers in the debate in York said that people could help save the planet by downloading fewer photographs from their mobile phones and by attaching solar panels to vicarage roofs.

World's made more dangerous with new Iran deal

Obama keeps going by illusions that do nothing to end Iran's autocracy:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama presented two starkly opposing views of the future following the announcement Tuesday of a nuclear deal with Iran, with Netanyahu saying the world is a more dangerous place, and Obama saying it is safer.

"The world is a much more dangerous place today than it was yesterday,” Netanyahu said to reporters before convening an emergency meeting of his security cabinet to discuss the deal.

His comments came just a couple hours after Obama said that the deal will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon and “makes our country and the world safer and more secure.”

But Netanyahu strongly disagreed. “The leading international powers have bet our collective future on a deal with the foremost sponsor of international terrorism,” he said. “They've gambled that in ten years' time, Iran's terrorist regime will change while removing any incentive for it to do so. In fact, the deal gives Iran every incentive not to change.”

Netanyahu’s comments were aimed more at the destabilizing impact an Iran flush with “hundreds of billions of dollars” in cash following the lifting of sanctions, than at the prospect of a nuclear threat from Tehran.
As a matter of fact, they can use any money they end up making to build more nuclear weapons, secretly or otherwise.
To further illustrate the likely destabilizing impact of the accord, the prime minister quoted Hassan Nasrallah, the head of “Iran’s terrorist proxy Hezbollah,” as saying that “a rich and strong Iran will be able to stand by its allies and friends in the region more than at any time in the past.”

In other words, he said, “Iran's support for terrorism and subversion will actually increase after the deal.”

Calling the deal a “stunning historic mistake,” Netanyahu said that Iranian Presdent Hassan Rouhani was correct in saying that with the deal “the international community is removing the sanctions and Iran is keeping its nuclear program.'

“By not dismantling Iran's nuclear program, in a decade this deal will give an unreformed, unrepentant and far richer terrorist regime the capacity to produce many nuclear bombs, in fact an entire nuclear arsenal with the means to deliver it,” he said.
Exactly. No deal like this is going to result in Iran discarding their nuclear manufacturing. That's why we can't accept it under any circumstances.

The Time to Leave is BEFORE It's Time To Leave

We've been getting these waves of articles asking, "Is it time for the Jews to leave Europe?

Glenn Reynolds comments:
If you're a Jew, and you're wondering if it's time to leave, then it's probably past time. "Last December, Créteil endured the brutal case of a 19-year-old woman whose apartment, which she shared with her boyfriend, was broken into. One of her assailants allegedly said, 'You must have cash here because you are Jews.' They then gang-raped her."

ISIS Blows Up Infant To Demonstrate Booby-Trap Methods

The Muslims Are Restless

From Arutz Sheva:
In arguably one of its cruelest acts yet, the Islamic State (ISIS) has reportedly blown up a baby as part of a demonstration showing how to handle explosives. So reports The Clarion Project. 
The unparalleled incident took place in Diyala Province, eastern Iraq, this past Friday, according to Sadiq el-Husseini, Security Committee Chairman of the province on behalf of the anti-ISIS forces there. He recounted the event to the local Arabic-language A-Sumeriah News. 
"The organization booby-trapped the baby in front of dozens of armed ISIS men," el-Husseini said, "and then detonated it from afar." He explained that the purpose of the operation, including the rigging of the baby and the detonation of the explosives attached to it, was part of an ISIS training exercise teaching various booby-trapping techniques.

French anti-terror police say gunmen who held 18 hostages at Primark store have escaped and are on the run near Paris

Police are hunting a group of gunmen believed to be on the run near Paris after they held a group of workers hostage during an attempted robbery this morning.
After successfully rescuing 18 staff members who were trapped inside the building, police have turned their attention to tracking down the armed robbers.
The gunmen – one of whom was thought to be a Primark employee – were still on the loose this afternoon.
Although it was originally thought they were hidden inside the Qwartz mall in Villeneuve-la-Garenne, just north of Paris, it’s now believed they have escaped. […]
Officers at the scene said they were initially treating the incident as a ‘suspected armed robbery attempt’ but terrorism could not be ruled out.
The Paris region remains on high alert for terrorist activity after Islamic extremists attacked a kosher supermarket and satirical newspaper offices in January, leaving 20 people dead including the attackers.

Bloom County turns up on Facebook after 26 years

If you were around in the 80s, you probably read the old Bloom County comic strip that ran between 1979-89. Its cartoonist, Berkeley Breathed, who later replaced it with the Sunday-only Outland (and later Opus), produced a brief revival online:
Is Opus the Penguin back after a quarter-century?

In any case, the popular cartoon character from "Bloom County" has made an unexpected comeback in a comic strip posted Monday on Facebook by creator Berkeley Breathed. In the strip, Opus awakens after what he discovers was a 25-year nap.

Separately, a posted photo of Breathed shows him at his computer with the caption "A return after 25 years. Feels like going home."

Left unsaid: Whether the revival is a one-off, or, instead, "Bloom County" is back for an indefinite stay.

The whimsical strip, which viewed politics and culture through the lens of a small town in Middle America, began in 1980, appearing in newspapers daily. But in 1989, Breathed called a halt until now — at least, for one day.
Since we're on the subject, Breathed might be reviving it on a regular basis, and several days ago on Facebook, he brought up an interesting past incident where censorship limited the distribution of a cartoon he drew involving a "burqini":
[...] I can't wait to publish here... nicely out of reach of nervous newspaper editors, the PC humor police now rampant across the web... and ISIS. To wit...Check the following, below: I spent an hour a few years ago, discussing that sketch of a Burqini with the publisher of the Washington Post (while standing in the produce section of my Santa Barbara Trader Joes.) We--this is true-- negotiated the style of her hair. That strand sticking out. As it might offend muslims. Because the Muslim staffers in his office were offended. So we came to an agreement as to how much hair could be sticking out and how messy it looked.

I quit cartooning for good two months later. Yes, these two little events were organically connected. I'll never get that happy little hour of happy TJ's shopping back.
Fox News has more about that incident. I appreciate that he's taking advantage of the wider freedom the internet can afford him so he won't have to worry too much about today's PC brigade.

Watch 42:37

From the Aging Rebel:
The most chilling sequence in the video begins at 1:20:50 p.m. Two plain clothes operators stand under the Don Carlos porch and point toward what seems to be the dead body. 
Six seconds later one of the operators, a gray haired man wearing a light orange shirt and a machine gun, walks toward the apparent body. 
He disappears briefly as he talks to a uniformed cop at about 1:21:07 p.m. 
Then at 1:21:35 he clearly and unmistakably places something on the ground of this crime scene. 
Then he quickly walks away. 
At 1:59:31 p.m. a uniformed officer walks over to the evidence planted by the plain clothes cop and marks it as evidence. Presumably, it is now part of the official case against the 177 men and women who were arrested but not “unarrested.”

By Day Muslim British Government Counter-Terror Policing Expert, By Night, Preacher Of Extremism

Fag for Allah

From the Telegraph:
The Government watchdog which inspects police forces’ readiness for terrorism admitted that it employed one of Britain’s most notorious Islamic extremists. 
For almost two years Abdullah al Andalusi, led a double life, the Telegraph can reveal. 
By night, he taught that the terror group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) was “no different to Western armies,” said that “kaffirs,” non-Muslims, would be “punished in hell” and claimed that the British government wanted to destroy Islam. 
By day, using a different name, he went to work for the same British government at the London offices of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC), the official regulator of all 44 forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 
The disclosures will be intensely embarassing to the Prime Minister, David Cameron, who has criticised parts of Britain’s Muslim communities for “quietly condoning” Islamist extremism. 
HMIC’s staff, who number less than 150, are given privileged access to highly sensitive and classified police and intelligence information to carry out their inspections.

UK: Editor fired after defending fellow writer who wrote about spread of Islam

From Jihad Watch:
In a plot line worthy of Scoop, Evelyn Waugh’s satire on journalism, the founding editor of an award-winning Highland paper has been sacked over his defence of freedom of speech. 
Brian Wilson, the former Labour MP, has written for the West Highland Free Press for 38 of its 43 years, since founding it with four others in 1972. 
The only gap in contributions came when he was a minister in Tony Blair’s government. 
He was dismissed for using his weekly column to defend his friend and fellow columnist, the Free Church of Scotland theologian Prof Donald Macleod, after he wrote about the spread of Islam in the UK. 
With 62 years of contributions between them, readers could have been forgiven for thinking they were in with the bricks at the paper’s headquqarters [sic] in Broadford on the Isle of Skye. 
But in a newspaper sacking possibly without precedent, the weekly paper chose to publish both offending columns before getting rid of both contributors…. 
In his column on May 22, Prof Macleod wrote that all minorities prefer to keep a low profile. 
He added: “Generations of British Muslims have done exactly that, many have made an invaluable contribution to British society, and many are perfectly prepared to listen quietly while Christians ‘witness’ to them. 
“But when minorities become majorities, things change… in the event of Islamic dominance in Britain our friendly Muslim shopkeepers will have little option but to march behind the radicals.” 
When Mr Wilson learned later that the theologian would no longer be contributing, he used his own column to back him, describing Prof Macleod’s “Footnotes” column as the “most intellectually challenging, erudite and beautifully written column in British journalism”. 
He said the article was “leading on to wider questions about Islamic influence within Europe, including implications for democracy and freedom”. 
He wrote: “The precedent he quoted was what happened in Algeria between the fourth and seventh centuries, from Augustine to Mohammed, so in raising current issues he was – as ever – taking the long view of history.” 
The former MP said not everyone was expected to agree with Prof Macleod, but the established way of expressing dissent was to publish letters. 
He went on: “Unfortunately it did not end there and as a result of whatever else transpired, Donald concluded that he should no longer contribute his column.” Mr Wilson said his own dismissal was “pathetic” and was retribution for his column….

ISIS' Female Gestapo

The loud knock on the family’s farmhouse door was at midnight as they got ready for bed. Outside, five Islamic State fighters, Kalashnikovs hung on their shoulders and faces hidden by black scarves, were searching for girls to kidnap.
‘We opened the door and they saw my wife’s teenage sisters Sabiha and Sajida. The fighters told us they were going to steal them because they were beautiful,’ says Kafi Osman, anger still burning in his eyes at the memory.
‘We cried and the girls wept as they were led outside and driven away in an open truck. We have heard nothing of them since.’
The girls’ kidnap in the northern Iraqi town of Makhmur came as jihadis from Islamic State (also known as IS and Isis) took control of it street by street. They beheaded men, raped women and then captured their trophies of war — virgins to be sex slaves or jihadi brides.
