Muslim Nanny Beheads Child In Moscow

Just another day of the joy of living with Muslims. Nothing to see here, move right along.

According to Nanny waving child's severed head detained in Moscow (dated February 29, 2016):
Moscow (AFP) - Moscow police on Monday arrested a nanny for beheading a young girl in her care, with witnesses saying the black-clad woman was carrying a severed head and threatening to "blow everyone up".

The agitated woman, who was reportedly shouting "Allahu Akbar", was spotted pacing up and down outside a Moscow metro station in front of bewildered bystanders.

Russian investigators said a woman had been detained after killing a child aged three or four who reportedly had learning disabilities, then setting fire to the apartment and fleeing.

[...]

"According to preliminary information, the child's nanny... waited until the parents left the apartment with their elder child and, guided by unknown motives, killed the little one, set the apartment on fire and left the scene," the Investigative Committee said.

[...]

Investigators said a criminal probe had been opened and that the suspect would undergo a psychiatric examination to establish whether she "understands the meaning of her actions and behaviour".

Interfax news agency, citing a law enforcement source, identified the woman as 38-year-old Gyulchekhra Bobokulova, a native of Muslim-majority Uzbekistan.

LifeNews said Bobokulova had told authorities she committed the crime because of her husband's infidelity, adding that she may be suffering from manic psychosis....

Say, does anyone know what the #2 bestseller in German non fiction is?

“Mein Kampf” is a bestseller again in Germany, with demand so outstripping supply that it is virtually impossible to get one’s hands on a copy.
Adolf Hitler’s anti-Semitic screed, which was republished in Germany earlier this year in a scientifically annotated edition, is currently the country’s second-best selling nonfiction book, according to one bestseller list, surpassed in sales only by a book about “The secret lives of Trees.” But this reporter was unable to purchase a copy, learning from salespeople in about a dozen bookstores in three cities that “Mein Kampf” can only be pre-ordered, is unavailable for immediate purchase and will remain so for the foreseeable future.
“You can order it, but I don’t know when it’ll arrive,” a shop assistant in a bookstore at Berlin’s famous KaDeWe department store told The Times of Israel during a recent visit.

Another Chapter in the Secure Border Chronicles

The Mexican government has placed six states on high alert following the theft of a vehicle with radioactive material. That alert comes less than a year after Mexico had an almost identical case where authorities throughout most of southern Mexico spent days searching for the missing material.
The warning was issued on Sunday evening by Mexico’s Secretariat of the Interior, just one day after the theft of a commercial pickup that had been transporting industrial material, including a yellow container with a rod of Iridium-192.
The theft of the pickup took place on in the town of San Juan del Rio, Queretaro in the central part of Mexico. In response the Mexican government placed six central and southern states on heightened alert and deployed federal police forces to search for the stolen radioactive material.
Just imagine if Bush had SECURED THE BORDER.

What would our politics look like right now?

And the Oscar for Pandering, Lies and Hypocrisy Goes to……

-->

HOLLYWOOD.

I promised myself not to watch the annual masturbatory ritual of the Academy Awards but was trapped into seeing it at a dinner party we were required to attend.
Last night’s display of white guilt and Liberal politics went off the charts this year.
This disgusting display of pandering to Blacks by trotting token ones out one by one on stage and the Academy’s response to being bitch slapped by #blacklivesmatter and Rev Al given by an Academy representative apologizing and promising on international TV to be more inclusive in the future was bad enough.
Then you had Biden and Lady GagMe lie about the rape culture and provide the all required #tag prompting us all to say something if see a man affectionately slap a woman on the ass, sending you to re-education camp or worse – but God forbid you see a Muslim do something suspicions like building bombs next door – where’s the #tag for that? - then you are called an Islamophobe.
And finally, DiCaprio after thanking everyone but the bear  (he was not inclusive) shows his hypocrisy on global warming while flying all around the world to promote it spewing out more carbon than any of us do in a year then labeling the indigenous population with a new victim tag – we’re destroying their environment – adding to our exploitation of the culture.  Football Team names is not enough anymore.
God spare us from Liberal self-righteousness.

Islam Is Retarded


By Dr. John K. Press:
Islam is retarded. Retard means, "to slow down the development or progress of (something); to hinder advance or accomplishment." It also indicates subnormal mental abilities. Islam is retarded in several ways. It seeks to take us back to the 7th century. 
In the 21st century, if that isn’t retarded, I don’t know what is. 
We need to be able to say such things - to judge cultures! It is not racist; it is culturist. I don't oppose mosques in the West because dark-skinned people meet there. I oppose mosques because they are temples to retardation! What self-respecting progressive nation would encourage building temples to retardation? 
Multiculturalism promotes retardation by asserting that old world cultures such as African tribes and Hinduism are equal to western culture. Voodoo dolls and the caste system? No thanks. The same goes for black ghetto culture. It’s retarded. 
I am western. I am into the First World. I am a progressive, I believe in the future. I am not a multiculturalist. I am a culturist. I judge cultures. 
Christianity is not retarded. Protestantism’s emphasis on individual conscience paved the way for scientific inquiry. 
A glance at history shows that the West’s combination of Jerusalem and Athens created modernity. Social studies conclusively link Protestant culture and good government. 
Churches support the culture that made democracy and science possible. Churches are temples to man’s individual and collective improvement. 
As one cannot separate culture and biology, I will go one step further in establishing that Islam is retarded. Both Athens and Jerusalem emphasize conscious frontal lobe activity; it is because our frontal lobes are so big that we have human abilities. 
Islam’s ritual and appeal to anger trigger activity in the cerebellum and amygdala (centers of movement and fear). As such, Islam seeks to focus on parts of the brain we share with reptiles. That is beyond retarded! 
On the theme of biology, having pride increases serotonin levels and posture. Western culturism - by taking pride in our futurist western culture and denigrating backward cultures - physically increases western fitness. 
Multiculturalism and Islam work to lower our standing; to make us equal to and lower than other cultures. We will never progress as long as we think we’re equal to or below retarded cultures. 
When we stand tall we give a sense of direction to ourselves and to the world. So spread these culturist thoughts: I judge cultures. The West is the best. Our culture increases lifespans. Our culture invented the internet and water heaters. 
Islam has invented nothing of any use. Islamic culture is not equal to ours. Stoning women is retarded. Islam is retarded.

The Jacksonian Temptation: Trump vs. Cruz


From Breitbart:
Is America witnessing the re-emergence of “Jacksonian” politics? With increasing regularity, pundits are harkening back to the cultural and political movement that brought frontier General Andrew Jackson to the White House in order to explain the changes taking place in the Republican Party. 
The hero of the Battle of New Orleans is more relevant than ever, it seems. Steve Inskeep, a journalist and historian who wrote Jacksonland: President Andrew Jackson, Cherokee Chief John Ross, and a Great American Land Grab, claimed that Donald Trump’s campaign was channeling Andrew Jackson in a recent New York Times op-ed. 
“Students of history will recognize that Mr. Trump is a Jackson man,” Inskeep wrote. “Consciously or not, Mr. Trump’s campaign echoes the style of Andrew Jackson, and the states where Mr. Trump is strongest are the ones that most consistently favored Jackson during his three runs for the White House.” 
Inskeep broadly follows Walter Russell Mead’s thesis on the Jacksonian school of foreign policy. Mead also described the recent resurgence of Jacksonianism, though he was more restrained in making a direct comparison to Trump. Mead called the New York businessman a “blank screen on which Jacksonians project their hopes.” 
Inskeep is correct that many regions that sided with Jackson in the 1820s and 1830s are where Trump is currently successful and that they will have a large impact on the 2016 presidential race. 
However, he distorts Jackson’s record and creates a liberal caricature of what motivates Jacksonians and conservatives in general. He insinuates that Jacksonianism is little more than cultural impulse and the desire to create “an America for white people.” 
This makes a hash of what is an incredibly important american political tradition—which is larger than pure identity politics. 
Far from being a cultural tic or simple anger at outsiders, Jacksonianism properly understood has a solid foundation in principles that trace back to the founding—and it has a much larger appeal than the confines of Appalachia. 
The Jacksonians had three core principles: the rejection of a crony capitalist alliance between big business and big government, disgust with a permanent political class in Washington wedded to the benefits of those cushy deals, and a belief that they were restoring virtuous, republican institutions guided by the principles of the Founding—with an emphasis on strictly limited government and federalism. Jacksonians had a deep and unrelenting faith in the virtue of the American people to restore their republic to the one the Founders had intended.

Marvel forces thinly veiled vulgarity onto grandfather of Thor

Here's something I'd wanted to write about for a while, the 4th issue of Marvel's new Angela series, which features a bizarre moment with the father of Odin, Bor, who's basically the grandparent of Thor. We'll use this video commentator's entry to provide a starting address of the subject:

So he's depicted as a gender/racial bigot, replete with "unsolicited opinions on Israel"? I'm not sure what they're trying to achieve here, but it's pretty tasteless. Yet Bleeding Cool sees nothing wrong with the subterfuge, and goes on to say:
It was rather funny, and a very clever use of comic book storytelling, with an unreliable narrator inserting themselves into the dialogue presented to the reader. It’s the kind of trick that can only be used in comics, but is used far too rarely. It reminded me of Cerebus, in a good way. So I highlighted it.
I don't see what's so funny about that kind of prejudice, even if it hadn't been forced onto a character whom you'd think was meant to be a goodie. And I don't think Cerebus makes for a great comparison, recalling that cartoonist Dave Sim was accused of misogynist positions, and here's a guy who found valid worries about his work, forcing him to reevaluate his opinions on Sim. Some people have to realize that satire does not always mix well with serious issues. And to say the "trick" can only be used in comics fails to consider it can wind up failing if the story is badly written to start with.

As the video commentator notes, Angela's been selling pretty low, as are plenty of other mainstream superhero titles today. And this is only bound to get worse as they all turn SJW-pandering.

Think it’s strange that Trump has THREATENED to open up libel laws, and created a hornet’s nest?

“I’m gonna open up our libel laws, so when they write purposely negative and horrible, false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money”


NYT:
Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz assailed Donald J. Trump in the presidential debate on Thursday for his involvement in Trump University, a defunct educational company that triggered a massive fraud suit against Mr. Trump.
Now, voters are about to learn more about Trump University in television commercials.
The American Future Fund, a conservative nonprofit group, is preparing what a spokesman said is a multimillion-dollar ad campaign highlighting people who say they were ripped off by Mr. Trump’s enterprise. The ads feature two men and one woman who describe themselves as having been lured into paying tens of thousands of dollars for business coaching that led nowhere.
The message of the ads appears to serve a dual purpose: to undercut Mr. Trump’s credentials as a businessman, and raise questions in voters’ minds about his honesty and trustworthiness.
One man featured in the ads, a retiree named Bob, says he was “scammed because I believed in Donald Trump.”
“Please don’t fall for the same line that I fell for,” he says, adding of Mr. Trump, “He can make people believe, practically, anything.”
Newsmax:
Six years ago, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who was then the state’s attorney general, blocked Donald Trump’s Trump University from operating in the state and investigated it for claims of “deceptive trade practices.”
Abbot’s office, through Assistant Attorney General Rick Berlin, began the probe over Trump’s now-defunct university, which was a real-estate training package, but did not award accredited degrees in January 2010, according to American Media Institute, to determine if the organization violated Texas’ Deceptive Trade Practices Consumer Protection Act.
The action from Abbott’s office came two years after GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz wrapped up his term as the state’s Solicitor General, a position he held from 2003 to 2008 after Abbott appointed him to the spot
Redstate:
Meet Sherri, a single mom and a victim of Trump University.
My name is Sherri, and I’m a single mom. Based on the fact that it was Donald Trump, I signed up… I made a huge mistake, trusting him. I paid thirty-five thousand, actually more than thirty five thousand. It was all supposedly supervised by Donald Trump, run by Donald Trump.  All of it was just a fake.  America, do not make the same mistake that I did with Donald Trump.  I got hurt badly, and I’d hate to see this country get hurt by Donald Trump.
ANY QUESTIONS OUT THERE?
We need this kind of stuff against China, Russia, and ISIS, NOT AGAINST AMERICANS.
I HATE the GOPe for putting us all in this spot.
HATE THEM ALL

Multiple Islamic Newspapers in Canada Call for the Mass Murder of Jews and Jihad as a Sacred Duty

The Muslims Are Restless

“A number of community newspapers, such as Windsor’s Al Forqan, are directly contributing to the radicalization of Canadian youth by glamorizing murder as a sacred religious duty,” said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer, B’nai Brith Canada. “Articles such as the one recently published in Al Forqan entitled “The Duty of Jihad”, are a great cause for concern.
Mostyn added, “For more than 30 years, B’nai Brith has compiled an Annual Audit of Antisemitic Incidents. The data gleaned from our extensive history of recording such incidents strongly suggests a correlation between rhetoric, such as that found in Al Forqan, and increasing levels of antisemitism. Calls for violent Jihad and support for listed terrorist groups have no place in a civilized democracy.”

Actor Jude Law Visits Jungle of "Migrants" in Calais, France, Security Team is Attacked and Robbed



From the Mirror:
A security team guarding Jude Law was attacked by migrants as the Hollywood star visited the jungle camp in Calais. 
The 43-year-old actor was in France with a film crew and Brit-winning singer Tom Odell , 25, to witness the horrors of the squalid makeshift village, which is due to be demolished. 
But shortly after the cameras stopped rolling, their minders were ambushed by some of the migrants and had their phones stolen. 
It is ­understood Jude was already on the production team’s bus when the thugs struck. A source said: “We were shocked to see some of the migrants acting like football hooligans. 
“The security team had stones thrown at them, and two had their phones smashed then stolen. Jude and Tom were told to stay in the bus shortly before the ambush as the atmosphere was building.” 
The Talented Mr Ripley star Jude was touring the camp , which he has branded “dangerous”, after calling on the Government to allow children living there entry to the UK if they have family here.

The Candidate 'You Lose'

Remember the movie The Candidate with Robert Redford?

Marvin Lucas (Peter Boyle), a political election specialist, must find a Democratic candidate to oppose California U.S. Senator Crocker Jarmon, a popular Republican. With no big-name Democrat eager to enter the unwinnable race, Lucas seeks out Bill McKay (Robert Redford), the idealistic, charismatic son of former governor John J. McKay. 

Campaign manager Lucas makes McKay a promise: "You're free, McKay. You have a chance to say what you want." His promise is sealed with a contract scribbled on the inside cover of a matchbook: "You lose." 

In my opinion, that's the deal the GOPe made with Rubio.

He is tasked to attack Trump, lose, yet peel off enough electoral votes to deny Trump a win on the first round ballot at the convention. The round that would make Trump the Republican Presidential nominee.

What do you think?

Mitch McConnell Says The GOP Has Plans To Throw The Election To Hillary "To Stop Donald Trump"



The reason I have gone from being a person who generally dislikes Trump to being a full-on supporter is because the GOP has time and again worked to thwart the will of their own constituents.

This article is evidence that once again, Job Number 1 for the GOP is to do the opposite of what their constituents are telling them they want.

The GOP needs to die. And that is why I am supporting Trump at this point. I hope to God Trump is what it takes to destroy the GOP once and for all.

And then we can build a real Conservative Party, instead of a party that runs in fear of the will of it's own people.

From the New York Times:
The scenario Karl Rove outlined was bleak. Addressing a luncheon of Republican governors and donors in Washington on Feb. 19, he warned that Donald J. Trump’s increasingly likely nomination would be catastrophic, dooming the party in November. 
But Mr. Rove, the master strategist of George W. Bush’s campaigns, insisted it was not too late for them to stop Mr. Trump, according to three people present. At a meeting of Republican governors the next morning, Paul R. LePage of Maine called for action. 
Seated at a long boardroom table at the Willard Hotel, he erupted in frustration over the state of the 2016 race, saying Mr. Trump’s nomination would deeply wound the Republican Party. 
Mr. LePage urged the governors to draft an open letter “to the people,” disavowing Mr. Trump and his divisive brand of politics. In public, there were calls for the party to unite behind a single candidate. 
In dozens of interviews, elected officials, political strategists and donors described a frantic, last-ditch campaign to block Mr. Trump — and the agonizing reasons that many of them have become convinced it will fail. 
Behind the scenes, a desperate mission to save the party sputtered and stalled at every turn. Efforts to unite warring candidates behind one failed spectacularly: An overture from Senator Marco Rubio to Mr. Christie angered and insulted the governor. 
An unsubtle appeal from Mitt Romney to John Kasich, about the party’s need to consolidate behind one rival to Mr. Trump, fell on deaf ears. 
At least two campaigns have drafted plans to overtake Mr. Trump in a brokered convention, and the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, has laid out a plan that would have lawmakers break with Mr. Trump explicitly in a general election. 
Despite all the forces arrayed against Mr. Trump, the interviews show, the party has been gripped by a nearly incapacitating leadership vacuum and a paralytic sense of indecision and despair, as he has won smashing victories in South Carolina and Nevada. Donors have dreaded the consequences of clashing with Mr. Trump directly. 
Elected officials have balked at attacking him out of concern that they might unintentionally fuel his populist revolt. And Republicans have lacked someone from outside the presidential race who could help set the terms of debate from afar. 
The endorsement by Mr. Christie, a not unblemished but still highly regarded figure within the party’s elite — he is a former chairman of the Republican Governors Association — landed Friday with crippling force. It was by far the most important defection to Mr. Trump’s insurgency: 
Mr. Christie may give cover to other Republicans tempted to join Mr. Trump rather than trying to beat him. Not just the Stop Trump forces seemed in peril, but also the traditional party establishment itself. 
Should Mr. Trump clinch the presidential nomination, it would represent a rout of historic proportions for the institutional Republican Party, and could set off an internal rift unseen in either party for a half-century, since white Southerners abandoned the Democratic Party en masse during the civil rights movement. 
Former Gov. Michael O. Leavitt of Utah, a top adviser to Mr. Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, said the party was unable to come up with a united front to quash Mr. Trump’s campaign. 
“There is no mechanism,” Mr. Leavitt said. “There is no smoke-filled room. If there is, I’ve never seen it, nor do I know anyone who has. This is going to play out in the way that it will.” 
Republicans have ruefully acknowledged that they came to this dire pass in no small part because of their own passivity. 
There were ample opportunities to battle Mr. Trump earlier; more than one plan was drawn up only to be rejected. Rivals who attacked him early, like Rick Perry and Bobby Jindal, the former governors of Texas and Louisiana, received little backup and quickly faded. 
Late last fall, the strategists Alex Castellanos and Gail Gitcho, both presidential campaign veterans, reached out to dozens of the party’s leading donors, including the casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and the hedge-fund manager Paul Singer, with a plan to create a “super PAC” that would take down Mr. Trump. 
In a confidential memo, the strategists laid out the mission of a group they called “ProtectUS.” 
“We want voters to imagine Donald Trump in the Big Chair in the Oval Office, with responsibilities for worldwide confrontation at his fingertips,” they wrote in the previously unreported memo. 
Mr. Castellanos even produced ads portraying Mr. Trump as unfit for the presidency, according to people who saw them and who, along with many of those interviewed, insisted on anonymity to discuss private conversations. 
The two strategists, who declined to comment, proposed to attack Mr. Trump in New Hampshire over his business failures and past liberal positions, and emphasized the extreme urgency of their project. 
A Trump nomination would not only cause Republicans to lose the presidency, they wrote, “but we also lose the Senate, competitive gubernatorial elections and moderate House Republicans.” No major donors committed to the project, and it was abandoned. No other sustained Stop Trump effort sprang up in its place. 
Resistance to Mr. Trump still runs deep. The party’s biggest benefactors remain totally opposed to him. 
At a recent presentation hosted by the billionaires Charles G. and David H. Koch, the country’s most prolific conservative donors, their political advisers characterized Mr. Trump’s record as utterly unacceptable, and highlighted his support for government-funded business subsidies and government-backed health care, according to people who attended. But the Kochs, like Mr. Adelson, have shown no appetite to intervene directly in the primary with decisive force. 
The American Future Fund, a conservative group that does not disclose its donors, announced plans on Friday to run ads blasting Mr. Trump for his role in an educational company that is alleged to have defrauded students. But there is only limited time for the commercials to sink in before some of the country’s biggest states award their delegates in early March. 
Instead, Mr. Trump’s challengers are staking their hopes on a set of guerrilla tactics and long-shot possibilities, racing to line up mainstream voters and interest groups against his increasingly formidable campaign. 
Donors and elected leaders have begun to rouse themselves for the fight, but perhaps too late. Two of Mr. Trump’s opponents have openly acknowledged that they may have to wrest the Republican nomination from him in a deadlocked convention. 
Speaking to political donors in Manhattan on Wednesday evening, Mr. Rubio’s campaign manager, Terry Sullivan, noted that most delegates are bound to a candidate only on the first ballot. 
Many of them, moreover, are likely to be party regulars who may not support Mr. Trump over multiple rounds of balloting, he added, according to a person present for Mr. Sullivan’s presentation, which was first reported by CNN. 
Advisers to Mr. Kasich, the Ohio governor, have told potential supporters that his strategy boils down to a convention battle. Judd Gregg, a former New Hampshire senator who had endorsed Jeb Bush, said Mr. Kasich’s emissaries had sketched an outcome in which Mr. Kasich “probably ends up with the second-highest delegate count going into the convention” and digs in there to compete with Mr. Trump. 
Several senior Republicans, including Mr. Romney, have made direct appeals to Mr. Kasich to gauge his willingness to stand down and allow the party to unify behind another candidate. 
But Mr. Kasich has told at least one person that his plan is to win the Ohio primary on March 15 and gather the party behind his campaign if Mr. Rubio loses in Florida, his home state, on the same day. 
In Washington, Mr. Kasich’s persistence in the race has become a source of frustration. At Senate luncheons on Wednesday and Thursday, Republican lawmakers vented about Mr. Kasich’s intransigence, calling it selfishness. 
One senior Republican senator, noting that Mr. Kasich has truly contested only one of the first four states, complained: “He’s just flailing his arms around and having a wonderful time going around the country, and it just drives me up the wall.” 
Mr. McConnell was especially vocal, describing Mr. Kasich’s persistence as irrational because he has no plausible path to the nomination, several senators said. 
While still hopeful that Mr. Rubio might prevail, Mr. McConnell has begun preparing senators for the prospect of a Trump nomination, assuring them that, if it threatened to harm them in the general election, they could run negative ads about Mr. Trump to create space between him and Republican senators seeking re-election. 
Mr. McConnell has raised the possibility of treating Mr. Trump’s loss as a given and describing a Republican Senate to voters as a necessary check on a President Hillary Clinton, according to senators at the lunches. 
He has reminded colleagues of his own 1996 re-election campaign, when he won comfortably amid President Bill Clinton’s easy re-election. Of Mr. Trump, Mr. McConnell has said, “We’ll drop him like a hot rock,” according to his colleagues.

Congratulations America we have the INVERSE of the FOUNDING FATHERS running

Back before Valentine’s day I said I could not vote for Cruz under any circumstances and remarked it was back to Trump until he fucked it up AGAIN.
He TOTALLY fucked it up again.
WAAAAAAAY beyond Cruz accepting Bickle and doubling down.
WaPo:
In his remarks today at a rally in Fort Worth, Tex., Donald Trump knew he’d make news. “I’ve never said this before,” he declared.
We’ll await the word of the Washington Post Fact Checker on the integrity of the statement, but Trump did appear to be veering into a new talking point. A media-law talking point, that is:
One of the things I’m going to do, and this is going to make it tougher for me…but one of the things I’m going to do if I win…is I’m going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money. We’re going to open up those libel laws. So that when the New York Times writes a hit piece, which is a total disgrace, or when the Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they’re totally protected.
ANY FRICKIN’ QUESTIONS?
ANY?
One of the reasons THIS:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
exists the way it does, was the way LIBEL was treated in England.
No Donald for me. He will have to retract for that to change and as we all know, he retracts NOTHING.
Now it’s back to Carson and the HOPE AND PRAYER the GOP convention goes past the 1st ballot because Carson is not winning any primaries.
What the hell is a person like me supposed to in the voting booth in NOV if the choice is Bernie or Trump?
What CHOICE is there?
The First Amendment Donald?
REALLY?
How much MORE do I hate McConnell and Rove and the GOPe today?

Chris Christie Endorses Trump



From the New York Times:
Chris Christie Endorses Donald Trump and Calls Marco Rubio ‘Desperate’ Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey endorsed Donald J. Trump on Friday, a major turn in a wild race and one that gives the New York businessman a major boost as he heads into the pivotal “Super Tuesday” contests. 
Mr. Christie was a candidate for president himself until he came in sixth place in New Hampshire’s primary. 
Seeing his political career facing an abrupt conclusion after his failed presidential campaign, he expressed his anger Friday at Senator Marco Rubio, who he was said to be upset with, blaming the “super PAC” backing the Florida senator for halting his momentum in New Hampshire with a string of slash-and-burn ads. 
The endorsement came a day after Mr. Rubio, in a withering debate performance, turned his guns on Mr. Trump for the first time, and followed up with his attacks on Friday morning, calling Mr. Trump a “con artist.” 
At Friday’s news conference announcing the endorsement, which was peppered with demeaning insults of Mr. Rubio by the two men, Mr. Christie repeatedly attacked Mr. Rubio, calling his behavior at the debate “desperate” and reflective of a “losing campaign.”

Why the word Conservative has now come to mean a 4 letter word for EXCREMENT

I have had problems with Pam over the years, including a major parting of the ways over the racist Vlaams Belang, but there can be NO DOUBT that CPAC’s action here is not just wrong, it’s a craven abandonment of principle, and an ICON for what the GOP has done since getting control of the House since 2010.
So excuse me when someone from the GOPe speaks favorably, or now CPAC of a candidate, but they are full of crap and represent themselves and their class, the POLITICAL CLASS.
What is most sad is that this is not some extremist view.
From American Thinker:
CPAC Turns Me Away…Yet Again
By Pamela Geller
Longtime supporters and followers of my work are acutely aware of the ongoing problems with the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. For years, I have wrestled and wrangled with and cajoled the CPAC organizers to allow me the same privilege they routinely extend to other conservative groups: the right to host events at the largest gathering of conservatives in the country. Every year I faced roadblocks, delays, and lame excuses – all stemming from the crippling cowardice of the CPAC leadership and its adamant refusal to grapple honestly with the jihad threat. This year, with jihadis threatening the whole world, it hasn’t gotten better – it has gotten worse.
Back in October, I contacted Matt Schlapp, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, which puts on CPAC. I informed him that my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), wanted to be a full-fledged sponsor of CPAC, so that I could host an event, “How Liberal Ideology Is Crippling National Security Capability.” Being a CPAC sponsor is not some honor that CPAC organizers confer; any conservative group can buy sponsor status.
Thinking our money was as good as anyone else’s, we invited the internationally renowned Dutch freedom fighter Geert Wilders, who just won the “Politician of the Year” award in The Netherlands. We also invited British politician Paul Weston of LibertyGB, who was arrested for quoting Winston Churchill’s words about Islam; Swiss freedom fighter Oskar Freysinger; Israeli political analyst Caroline Glick; and DHS whistleblower Philip Haney.
I followed up with Schlapp, ACU Executive Director Dan Schneider, and the ACU’s Director of Events & Conferences, Carin Walters, regularly. I was put off, put down, jerked around, and made to go jump through hoops – which I did. I followed up for months while they “studied the issue.” They were concerned about security because of the death threats I have received since my free speech conference in Garland, Texas last May was attacked by Jihadis. I assured them that my entire security apparatus, a seasoned team of the top professionals in their field, would be in place (at our expense, not CPAC’s), and that several of my speakers who are European politicians would also be coming with their own secret service protection.
This should have been adequate. I would hardly have been the first person to be at CPAC after receiving death threats. And even after receiving death threats in the past, I have been at CPAC many times. There was a time I was asked to speak, or at least introduce, notables at CPAC. At CPAC 2008, I introduced Mark Steyn. I also once introduced David Horowitz. But once I started to criticize CPAC, the ACU’s David Keene, along with members of the ACU board such as Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan, those invitations quickly stopped coming.
Still, I have hosted several independent events during CPAC – by having other sponsors secure a room for me somewhat clandestinely – but we succeeded in bringing much-needed coverage of the jihad threat that CPAC was resolutely ignoring. Apparently because they were determined to continue ignoring it, I’ve had problems with the ACU leadership for years, as they have steadfastly refused to address the jihad threat and related issues adequately, and have continuously marginalized the most courageous voices.
At CPAC 2009, I was one of the first to give Geert Wilders a platform in America, after I fought fiercely for months trying to get Wilders on the official CPAC roster. They should have been clamoring to have him. He represents the fight for the idea of American freedom, our unalienable rights as endowed by our creator. After much conversation, David Keene was planning to give the Courage Under Fire Award to Wilders at CPAC for his fight for free speech (the very bedrock of conservative principles).
Yet within 24 hours of the decision to give Wilders the Charlton Heston Courage Under Fire award, it was withdrawn. Keene canceled the decision to honor Wilders because of an article in Newsweek in which David Horowitz and my AFDI colleague Robert Spencer criticized CPAC for its Norquist-mandated refusal to deal with the jihad or Islamic supremacism in any meaningful or effective way. Upon their refusal, I raised the funds and I brought him myself. Imagine having to battle with the head of the American Conservative Union to have the future prime minister of the Netherlands, who continues to be persecuted for speaking the truth, address an audience at CPAC.
At CPAC 2010, I hosted AFDI’s inaugural event: “Jihad: The Political Third Rail,” featuring former Pentagon Islamic law expert Stephen Coughlin, Allen West, and other important voices – thanks to the David Horowitz Freedom Center (DHFC), which booked the room under its name. The following year, the DHFC came through for us again, and CPAC was the site of the world premiere of our acclaimed documentary, “The Ground Zero Mosque: The Second Wave of the 9/11 Attacks.”
Then at CPAC 2012, I hosted a panel on Islamic Law in America, featuring Justice Department whistleblower J. Christian Adams, Robert Muise of the American Freedom Law Center, and others. By this time, David Horowitz was no longer a sponsor of CPAC: the Norquist/Khan cabal was deeply problematic to many others besides me. We partnered with the Tea Party. Despite our being under the official umbrella of the Tea Party, CPAC put that event in a tiny, windowless, sweltering room – which was packed to the rafters with people, as CPAC knew it would be, given the urgency of the subject and the fact that it wasn’t being discussed in any official CPAC event. It was openly vengeful, and yet another indication of how petty the ACU leadership is.  
At CPAC 2013, I appeared on Breitbart’s “Uninvited” panel – after being banned by the ACU. During that conference, I met with Al Cardenas, who was then the ACU’s chairman. He admitted to me that I had been banned by the ACU board and apologized for this, assuring me that I would be on the official CPAC roster of speakers the following year. On June 1, 2014, however, Cardenas resigned – so he almost certainly knew when he made that promise that it was an empty one. Schlapp took over, and when I applied in January 2015 to secure a space, I was told that I had asked too late. “If only I had asked earlier,” they said.
So this year, I asked in October. During the many long-winded discussions we had after that about security, I had to promise that if I came to CPAC, there would be “no cartoons.” So I had to surrender on the point where free speech is most challenged in order to speak out there for free speech. They also told me I could not publicize my event beforehand. My past events at CPAC were always SRO, but if I couldn’t publicize it, how would people know to come? Nevertheless, I agreed to every request.
Then, after telling me for months that they were concerned about security despite the extensive arrangements I planned to have in place, and delaying until there was almost not enough time for me to put together the event, Schneider told me Tuesday that they were not allowing AFDI to be a sponsor – not because of security concerns, but because I have criticized them in the past for not paying adequate attention to the jihad threat.
When Schneider told me that I was being denied because of the “negative press coverage” I had previously given them, after months of saying that they were hesitating because of something else, I responded that I had reported on what happened. I reported what was true and accurate. Back on our first phone call, Schneider had even admitted that I had been right about CPAC: that in previous years the conference had gone to great lengths to avoid the subject of jihad and sharia. And yet now that was why they were denying me an opportunity to host an event there. It looks as if Schneider’s new and improved CPAC is the same as the old, broken CPAC.
The ACU is so small and thin-skinned over the negative publicity that I gave them in the past for ignoring the jihad that they’re doing it again, and barring what would have been a significant discussion of the most important issue of our time. For that is what I did for years, and would have done again this year: I have done what CPAC refuses to do, and given CPAC attendees opportunities to become knowledgeable about covering the issues that ought to be center stage, prime time at CPAC.
It is apparently official CPAC policy at this point to avoid and ignore the greatest national security threat to our country – or at best to feature speakers whose analysis is hamstrung by political correctness and ignorance of the subject. Year in, year out, the ACU has managed to keep jihad and sharia off the CPAC schedule. The ACU is the right’s largest and most influential grassroots umbrella organization, and yet it has abandoned conservative principles and morphed into a fleshy, ambiguous, compromised political machine doling out money and favors for cronies – when it is doing anything at all.
The Middle East is on fire. ISIS has vowed to commit a jihad attack larger than 9/11 and called on Muslims to murder American civilians. The country is deeply concerned about the jihad issue, and yet it is hardly anywhere on the CPAC schedule, and they’re not allowing me space because I criticized their weakness and flabbiness on this very issue in the past.
The work my organization and I do is critical and singular. It addresses the most serious issue of our time. CPAC should be inviting us, not banning us. The latest annual Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) points to 2016 as being perhaps the worst year in history for terrorism, and the Muslim migrant invasion presents an unprecedented threat to the West.
CPAC doesn’t deserve the name “Conservative.” It should be called the “Cowards Political Action Conference.”

Top US General in Europe: Russia, Syria are ‘Weaponizing Migration’ to Break Europe


From Defense.gov:
Russia has “chosen to be an adversary and poses a long-term existential threat” to the United States and U.S. allies and partners in Europe, he told lawmakers. Russia wants to “rewrite” the agreed rules of the international order, he said. 
“To counter Russia, Eucom, working with allies and partners, is deterring Russia now and preparing to fight and win if necessary,” he said. 
Russia is eager to exert unquestioned influence over its neighboring states to create a buffer zone, the general said, adding, “Russia is extending its course of influence yet further afield to try to reestablish a leading role on the world stage.” 
Despite what he described as Russian pronouncements to the contrary, Russia has done little to counter ISIL in Syria, Breedlove said. 
Instead, Moscow has done a “great deal to bolster the Assad regime and its allies,” he remarked. Russian involvement in Syria has “wildly exacerbated the problem,” changing the dynamic in the air and on the ground, he said. 
“Russia and the Assad regime are deliberately weaponizing migration from Syria in an attempt to overwhelm European structures and break European resolve,” he said.

This Will Not End Well

Norway’s Islamists Form “Soldiers Of Allah” To Patrol Oslo’s Streets To Counter “Infidels” Soldiers Of Odin… 

People with known ties to the Oslo Islamist scene claim to have created the group ‘Soldiers of Allah’ (Jundullaah) to counter the controversial Soldiers of Odin group now patrolling Norwegian streets.
“In response to the infidel group Soldiers of Odin patrols, we Muslims have chosen to create a group that will patrol the streets, first in Oslo, to prevent evil and encourage the good,” a source within the Islamist environment told VG.
The group is officially calling itself Jundullaah, translated to English as ‘Soldiers of Allah’ or Norwegian as ‘Allaahs soldater’.
Someone claiming to be a member of the group sent VG what they said would be the Soldiers of Allah’s official uniform: a black hoodie decorated with the black flag of terror group Isis.
The Norwegian Police Security Service (Politiets Sikkerhetstjeneste – PST) declined to comment on the group, but Labour’s deputy leader Hadia Tajik strongly condemned both of Norway’s new self-declared ‘patrol’ groups.
“Vigilantism does not belong in Norway, whether they do it in the name of Odin or Allah. I assume that the police, who are the only ones who have the authority to patrol the streets and use force, are following these groups as closely as the circumstances require,” she said.

Allow Me Please, to be Ignorant

If you have children looking over your shoulder when you read this post - please ask them to leave the room. I am about to rant - and not nicely.

Ready? Here you go.

WHY SHOULD A LEGAL HISPANIC CITIZEN OF THIS COUNTRY GIVE A RAT'S ASS ABOUT ILLEGAL HISPANICS AND WHY DO THE REPUBLICANS GET THEIR PANTIES IN A WAD WORRYING ABOUT THE HISPANIC VOTE BECAUSE OF IT?

Why would Hispanic citizens give a crap about illegals that are taking jobs from them, puting their communities at risk from drugs and crime - and why haven't we seen polls that ask that simple question.

Why....should.... they.... care?

Someone please address my stoooopidity.

Thank you.

ISIS is using a metal tool called 'the Biter' to clip the flesh of women who disobey its dress code


From Business Insider:
People in Mosul call it "the Biter" or "Clipper" — a metal instrument newly introduced by Isis officials to punish women whose clothes they claim do not completely conceal their body. 
A former school director, who fled from the city earlier this month, describes the tool as causing agonising pain by clipping off pieces of flesh. 
Fatima, a 22-year-old housewife who does not want to give her full name, said she had finally escaped from Mosul after several failed attempts because her children were starving and Isis had become more violent and sadistic compared with a year ago, especially toward women. 
"The Biter has become a nightmare for us," Fatima said after reaching safety in Mabrouka Camp for displaced people near Ras al-Ayn in Kurdish-controlled north-east Syria. 
"My sister was punished so harshly last month because she had forgotten her gloves and left them at home." Isis insists that women be fully veiled; wear loose or baggy trousers, socks, and gloves; and be accompanied by a male relative whenever they step outside their homes. 
Fatima said that a month after the use of this metal tool to punish her sister "the bruises and scars are still visible on her arm." 
She quoted her sister as saying "the biting punishment is more painful than labour pains." Other witnesses describe the Biter as operating like an animal trap, or a metal jaw with teeth that cut into the flesh.
I'm sure this has NOTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM.

Minnesota DPS apologizes for granting ‘FMUSLMS’ personalized license plates to driver who claimed it was the name of his band


Minnesota Department of Public Safety has apologized for issuing a set of personalized license plates that read ‘FMUSLMS’.
The DPS said the ‘offensive’ plates should never have been granted to a man, who reportedly claimed on his application form that it was the name of his band.
A photograph of the plates started circulating on social media earlier this week and, after uproar from advocacy groups, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton stepped in to get them revoked.

Police in Cologne launch new sex attack investigation... into who was leaking information to the Press about cover ups


From the Daily Mail:
Police in Cologne have launched a new sex attack investigation - into who was leaking information to the Press about cover-ups. 
The Cologne force has repeatedly faced embarrassment over the leaks amid claims senior officers played down the role of immigrants in the wave of New Year sex attacks in the city. 
Leaks included a secret internal document detailing the extent of the crimes, as well as an interview with a senior officer who revealed how they were receiving hundreds of requests for help on the night but were powerless to do anything. 
The official added they were dealing with a level of disrespect for the law which they had never seen before. 
Prosecutors in Cologne have confirmed that police are gathering material which will then be examined for evidence as to the source of the leaks that resulted in complaints from the region's interior minister Ralf Jager. 
It also led to the previous Cologne police president Wolfgang Albers going into retirement after his statements were proven to be incorrect by the leaks that then followed. 
A public enquiry is now being carried out in North Rhine-Westphalia into the incidents.
No. Apparently the inquiry is not "into the incidents", but is INSTEAD, INTO THE LEAKS.

Jihad, Migration, and Sharia



AND THEN THERE'S THIS:

ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) Canada is an Islamic nationalwide organization striving “to build an Exemplary Canadian Muslim Community” by “total submission to Him [Allah] and through the propagation of true and universal message of Islam.” 
“Another highly important reason for the prohibition of migration of Muslims to Dar-ul-Kufr is that it goes against the spirit as well as their readiness for Jihad fi sabilillah (striving and fighting in the way of Allah). This spirit and readiness must be kept always alive so that the Muslims may respond at once to the call of Jihad whenever the need for it arises anywhere.
