Who's responsible for this latest GI Joe mess? Larry Hama, SL Gallant, or IDW?

While all attention was focused on Aubrey Sitterson, it turns out Hama's book has some troubling material turning up as well. This item about the 244th issue of GI Joe: ARAH is decidedly at least half bad news, and should serve as a warning that even Hama's series isn't immune to leftism. First, I don't know if we should be worried yet, but here's a panel from the issue featuring one of the latest recruits to the GI Joe staff:
The character, whose name is Naif Nasr, doesn't seem to be referred to as a Muslim in the material I've found so far, but that headgear he's wearing is fishy. Assuming he's not actually Islamic, that's why I'll withhold judgement for now, but I can say that, if Hama's capitulated to that kind of SJW pandering, it's very worrisome.

The following, however, is even more noticeable:
If you look carefully, you'll see that the vandal with the grey cap has NRA marked on it. And then, as if the political allegories couldn't get bad enough:
Here, if you look closely, you'll see that Trump is being carved into the side of this hut belonging to Snake-Eyes, who was killed off 2 years ago. So it seems we have here a case of hooligans up in the hills depicted as Trump/NRA supporters by artist S.L Gallant, who're willing to commit trespassing, breaking and entering and even vandalism of a military man's property. And if I didn't know better, I'd say there was a potential allusion to the whole MAGA slogan from last year's election in the dialogue there.

So who's fault is this? Some people posting on the Hiss Tank forums noticed and were rightfully put off, which led to a response by editor Tom Waltz on the thread about Sitterson, who said:
Actually, no. The TRUMP knife-grafiti vandalism was my fault... because I missed it before we sent this off to the printer. It was a silly inside gag (Gallant's always f'ing with me... he's like Loki when it comes to being a trickster, and I'd kill him if I didn't love him like a brother. Wait... does that make me Thor?) that I had made a note to myself to take care of and have modified... then it got lost in the production/deadline rush to get this out to stores.

Why am I telling you this? Not to defend my mistake (these things happen... sucks, but they do) but because it was Larry, when we were putting together the balloons and captions for the issue, who requested we remove anything overly/overtly political in the scene, because despite whatever political leanings he (or anyone involved with the book) might have, RAH (in his exact words to me when he made said request) "isn't the place for this." And I (and IDW) 100% agree with him, which makes me even more bummed that I missed it (total disclosure: I didn't realize I had let it slip through until I read this forum thread).

I wouldn't dare speak for Larry as to how he feels about anything, politically or otherwise -- he's a grown man, who is fully capable of doing so for himself should he choose to do so. However, I think it's important I point out facts in this specific case to counter uninformed online conjecture. Larry didn't want that stuff in the issue. I didn't either. IDW didn't either. But... it got lost in the shuffle anyway, and as editor, that's my bad.

Look -- we are doing a lot of stuff behind the scenes here at IDW when it comes to JOE -- a lot of exciting things. Personally, I'm so excited for what's coming with DAWN OF THE ARASHIKAGE, I could wet my trousers! (You guys wanted gritty? Get friggin' ready!) And despite just about 99.9% of what's being thrown about online (by folks who have zero clue what we do day-to-day, or who we are as people at IDW... which, if you're curious, is a VERY diverse group, with everything from young hipsters to old, crusty former Marines like yours truly, and everything in between), I can say without reservation that our number 1 priority is to the properties we are blessed to be working on... as well as finding ways to tell the best stories possible through those same properties... and not some "Marxist propaganda campaign." Hell, the only campaign I know of here is to get more varieties of coffee in the office kitchen (I keep telling all these wimps to drink it black... problem solved! LOL). Truth is, there are damn good people here at IDW (and over at Hasbro) that I'm proud to work alongside, just as I was once proud to serve alongside a diverse group of Marines back in the day -- all differences in races, genders, and political leanings notwithstanding.

My point is, to everyone here on Hisstank: please don't assume to know what folks are thinking or doing unless you either intimately know them... or you actually ask them and let them explain it to you. Your assumption might just be wrong and when you share those inaccuracies with the vast online world, it only creates unnecessary confusion and animosity. I'm not trying to scold or berate... I'm just letting you folks know that we are all on the same team here -- the team that wants to bring G.I. JOE back to the glory (guts and glory!) and prominence it deserves. And I promise -- we're working on it every single day!

As for Larry? Larry bleeds G.I. JOE. And I'm learning so much from him -- all of it good and honorable. You know who else bleeds G.I. JOE? SL Gallant (the trickster bastard). That guy's one of the biggest JOE (and overall 80s nostalgia) nerds I know! Hell... all the gang: Brian Shearer, James Brown, John Royle and his team... they LOVE being on this book. (And they aren't done yet... look for a cool announcement at NYCC... hint, hint.)

And I know you all bleed JOE, too, so please accept my heartfelt thanks for supporting us through thick and thin... the best is yet to come!

Yo Joe!

Tom Waltz
I'd like to think it was that simple, but it's not. And not everyone on their forums was convinced by Waltz either. How could they not possibly have noticed, or forgotten to edit the art to avoid having those etchings stuffed in by the artist? One poster even said:
It's commendable of the editor to take the hit, but this wasn't "just" Gallant inserting the Trump etching. The script called for an "intention", to say the least. The letterer saw it. The colorist saw it. Everyone on the book saw it.
Look, I'm a left winger liberal, and I thought it crossed the line. Just didn't feel needed in an escapist book, and it's easy to see that this will alienate fans.
Well there you go! Even that line about the bearded vandals "making the country great" is cause for suspicion. In fact, it's almost hilarious to see somebody with a NRA cap presented as a baddie in a book where firearms are fully embraced by many of the US military officials leading the cast. And if the cap and the Trump scrawling were supposed to be inside gags, why were they directly on the finished art panels? Even Hama, at this point, can't be overlooked, and undoubtably, some of his work will have to be taken now with a grain of salt.

As far as I know, Gallant's left the series, and IDW's hopefully realized Joe fans aren't standing for this newest insult next to Sitterson's shockers. But it's clear they've angered some Joe fans enough to avoid the book for who knows how long, and not everyone's going to be fooled by an otherwise ambiguous apology. And I'm not forgetting that one of their managers, Dirk Wood, once defended Dark Horse's Scott Allie despite the severity of his offenses.

Here's a suggestion, if they're really repenting: bring Chuck Dixon back for another assignment on the GI Joe franchise. Better still, show they're willing to hire a right-leaning editor. That's one way they can prove themselves better than Marvel's editors, if anyone, are at the moment, and DC's too. In fact, maybe Joe fans should openly campaign for IDW to hire a conservative for a prominent editing job with them, as well as adding cast members in GI Joe itself who're of French, Armenian, Serbian, Uruguayan, Kenyan and Macedonian backgrounds to offset the example Hama may have leaned toward.

The Great Replacement: Canada Abolishes Itself

"Western Democratic institutions that are controlled by our Globalist corporate and banking interests, are using the Cultural Christian inheritance of the West, and it's teachings, that have created the modern Human Rights industry, and have wed these cultural tendencies to the irreligious institutions of the Left, like Academia and the Media, and are using witless pawns, like Antifa and Amnesty International, to help Global Finance to import a limitless number of new debt slaves into the West. And this is being done at the expense of the people being displaced in their ancestral homelands."

New Orleans Saints Kneel During Tribute For Murdered Officer


From Blue Lives Matter:
New Orleans, LA – New Orleans Saints players kneeled before the game on Sunday, but it wasn’t during the national anthem, it was during a tribute to murdered New Orleans PD Officer Marcus McNeil. 
Fans booed as players knelt during the moment of silence for Officer McNeil. 
The players then stood for the national anthem, according to NOLA.com. 
Sunday’s game of Saints vs. Lions was the first game at the Superdome since President Trump said that kneelers should be fired. None of the Lions players kneeled. 
New Orleans Police Department Officer Marcus McNeil, 29, was ambushed and murdered early Friday morning. 
The incident happened just after midnight when a group of three officers on patrol spotted something suspicious. 
Officer McNeil stepped out of his car to investigate and a gunman opened fire, shooting the officer repeatedly. 
Other officers returned fire, shooting the suspect, who then ran into an apartment. The gunman remained barricaded in the apartment until he eventually surrendered to a SWAT team. 
Officer McNeil was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. 
Officer Marcus McNeil leaves behind his wife, Brittiny, and two small children.

TICK TOCK: Assange Releases Mysterious ‘Encryption Key’ One Week After Hannity Tweets ‘T-Minus 7 and Counting’

TICK TOCK: Assange Releases Mysterious ‘Encryption Key’ One Week After Hannity Tweets ‘T-Minus 7 and Counting’


AND THEN THERE'S THIS:


As Josh Caplan reported earlier at The Gateway Pundit Wikileaks founder Julian Assange released a mysterious tweet that has followers guessing if something is in the works. On Sunday Assange tweeted a series of numbers that resemble an encryption key. “4767 5774 6a7a 4d6c 6330 666b 314a 3453 0000 0907 84b4 f787 7616 86f7 a737 5707 5736,” tweeted Assange.


And Julian Assange followed that up with a series of tweets on Hillary Clinton.

First Assange went after Hillary for pushing the hoax that Russia flipped the US election.


Julian Assange then pointed out the several Obama officials, including Barack Obama, said Wikileaks and Russia had no direct ties.

Then Julian Assange pointed out that something is wrong with Hillary Clinton, “A cold creepiness rarely seen.”
PASTORIUS CUTTING IN WITH MY THOUGHTS: 

I think Assange is going to prove that Hillary tried to use (or thought she was using) Donald Trump to unseat her rivals during the 2016 election season. I predict Assange will release a series of emails that show this to be true. 

And after that, he will release a series of emails showing that Hillary and John Podesta totally cooked up the whole Russian narrative, and then conspired with friends in Congress (like John McCain) and at major media outlets, to flood the public space with their totally made-up story.

New York: Prominent Muslim Surgeon Arrested in Jihad Bomb Plot ‘Create the Next 9/11’ – Attacks on Concerts, Subways & Times Square


From Pamela Geller:
Another Stephen Paddock type. Who would suspect an orthopedic surgeon named Dr. Russell Salic? 
Dr. Russell Salic (note name) was arrested earlier this year for the ISIS-linked abduction and beheadings of two Filipino workers. 
It’s the same pattern over and over again. Doctors in Michigan, US naval officers, popular happy teens in Mississippi, rappers in Germany, doctors in Glasgow and Australia, chemical engineering students in Canada, the UK’s top students at their most elite schools,  herdsmen in Nigeria, British surgeonsheart surgeons in Saudi Arabia, university students in Britain, imams in America, doctors in Australia, Canadian Idol contestants, and so forth – what brings these wildly different people together?  
Jihad.  
From the Sahara to the Kalahari, London to Lisbon, Manhattan to Madrid, Bali to Boston, Tiananmen Square to Thailand, Myanmar to Malaysia, Nairobi to Nigeria ….. no matter what the background, upbringing, schooling, wealth or poverty, color, what have you, it doesn’t matter. The understanding of Islam and jihad is the same, and it is the motive, the incitement to this monstrous war on the West and and the East and all points in between. 
This is not rocket science. This is reality.
FILIPINO DOCTOR ACCUSED OF PLOTTING TERROR ATTACKS IN NYC WAS ARRESTED MONTHS AGO IN THE PHILIPPINES 
An orthopedic surgeon charged in a foiled Manhattan terror plot was arrested earlier this year for the ISIS-linked abduction and beheadings of two Filipino workers. 
Dr. Russell Salic could face charges in the horrific Philippines attacks before authorities agree to extradite the accused terrorist to face charges in the United States, authorities said Saturday. 
Chief State Counsel Ricardo Paras said a court in Manila was considering the transfer request from the U.S. government regarding the new allegations made public Friday.

That's why you can't just simply "accept" Islamization

Russia Today interviewed a French writer about a new book called "Partition", detailing how politicians practically accepted Islamofascism into the country, and the possibility that in the next decade, it'll become a new Lebanon:
In just a few years, Islamic suburbs of Paris will obey their own set of rules, they will have their own laws, their own principles, maybe even their own police. It is already the case, Alexandre Mendel, author of the book ‘Partition’ told RT.

Europe has been facing a large number of migrants coming from the war-torn countries in Africa and the Middle East. Today many are concerned about the Islamization of Europe and the failure of Muslims assimilating into their new countries.

RT met with a writer Alexandre Mendel, whose new book “Partition” is devoted to the Muslims' failure to integrate in France, and discussed the current situation in that country.

RT: Please start by describing for our readers your book.

Alexandre Mendel: My last book, 'Jihadist France,' was only about the French terrorists. ‘Partition’ is mainly about Islamization of France, about what’s going on in France, in schools, hospitals, at work, in sports clubs, etc. I am not talking this time about terrorism itself, but about the way France decided whether the French government - like it or not – collaborated and accepted some kind of arrangements with Islam. This is the main topic of the book. [...]

RT: What should be done to integrate people into society? Is it only a Muslim thing, or other groups, as well?

AM: In my book, I say that there is no solution, because it is too late; there won’t be any solution. You can’t send them back to their country - they are French - the French cannot send them back. What France will become in the next 10 or 20 years will be a kind of new Lebanon in some places in France.

For example, take some suburbs in Paris: they will have their own set of rules, they will have their own laws, their own principals, maybe even their own police. It is already the case. The fact that in France right now in many places France has no control in these areas. We accepted it already and we won’t fight back to get these suburbs back to France. It is already done – we already lost the war against them.

So the rich people in France will be in the fancy neighborhoods of Paris, far from the problems, and then the poor people will have to deal with Islamism on a daily base. This is the way we accepted that already.
Well that's why, no matter what anybody thinks, you cannot stand idly by and accept that barbarians are literally "citizens" in every way, shape and form and cannot be exiled for their evils. Geert Wilders made the point that we can't just simply accept and that's it; societies have to be de-islamized to make them safer again.

Behind Trump’s latest moves: A return to constitutional government

WINNING!

From the New York Post:
Do you remember how glum Barak Obama looked after last year’s election? It wasn’t because he liked Hillary Clinton. Instead, he was mourning for the last four years of his administration. He was looking at all his unconstitutional executive orders going down the tube. 
Obama kept the Affordable Care Act looking healthy via an extra-constitutional grant of $1 trillion to health-insurance companies. That required congressional approval, and Obama’s decision to bypass Congress was held unconstitutional by a federal court. President Trump’s decision Thursday to halt the bailout makes the litigation moot and represents a return to constitutional government. 
The same can be said of Trump’s Friday decision to throw the Iran deal back to Congress, by refusing to certify that Iran is in compliance with the deal.

Harvey Weinstein: Hollywood and Complicity


From The Last English Prince:
The hypocrisy is compelling. The decades of complicity speaks of cultural corruption. Twenty-seven women. 
The number is undoubtedly more in the range of the victims of the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay shooting. Everybody knew. 
And nobody did anything about it. 
The pig – as he was known – undoubtedly chose the pig mask for the drug-fueled orgies during the Cannes Film Festival. 
Who wore the goat mask? And who lusted to be the next pig? 
Harvey Weinstein liked one thing and only one thing: Sexual humiliation of women. We are all adults here. But who can forget this? 
The above – is what Hollywood peddles. And if “Swordfish” is training wheels for the rest of us, Weinstein kicked the wheels off decades ago. 
Rose McGowan managed a paltry settlement. Yet everyone knew. 
Nobody took the man down. 
The men…. were complicit. 
Of course now that the not-so-secret Hollywood open secret can be digested in disgusting manner by the rest of us – those involved and complicit decry 
“The Pig”. 
Which brings me back to _Animal Farm_. “ 
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” 
The Pig knew about that of which he spake.

Bannon’s Disruption

Given the drop off in horrendous leaks which make ANY admin look like utter chaos, it’s hard for me NOT to conclude that Steve Bannon was not the source of a lot of them.
The difficulty with Bannon is that I agree with so much of his main basic thrust, but I have severe doubts about his methods resulting in success in dislodging a class of ‘experts’, legislators, executive dept fiat producers, and ‘businessmen’ whose failures are devoid of accountability to the people.
Let’s take a look at his ‘primary all the sons of bitches’ plan.
There are 2 requirements for his support.
  1. You will vote AGAINST Mitch McConnell as Senate Majority leader
  2. You will end the senate rule which requires 60 votes to end debate (Cloture) 
My unpleasant observation is, in fact, there is a single large (inchoate) party consisting of the GOPe and Wall Street Dems, and that their support is a political class which consisting of a parade thru revolving doors of some academia-govt-large industry, and the MSM is part of the industry. Mr. McConnell is a major representative of that party. To a large extent the military UPPER LEVELS have been co-opted, and has now institutionally codified many of these values (Nidal Hasan – workplace violence, and Steven Coughlin).
The US legislature can achieve nothing since any actual change DIES in the Senate.
But then reading the interviews of Bannon with Robert Kuttner, August HERE, and October HERE, one has to question whether the disruption can achieve the goals of diminishing the influence of the entrenched, powerful, arrogant and supremely confident political class, whose manifest FAILURES in designing, implementing, and finishing national and foreign policy are success if you look at the results for THEM, and their class.
Recently the NYT published THIS analysis, Democrats Are Playing Checkers While Trump Is Playing Chess , of course, the basis of this ‘chess’ is Bannon’s. The Times (being who they are) paints the D party as using identity politics as some tactical mistake resulting strategic destruction. Then in the mirror Bannon/Trump is seen as a cynical bettor on the opposite ‘race’, in that whites will band together, and we have both sides stoking a very polarized electorate into tribal race camps. The papers they quote as fundamental CONCENTRATE on voting differences by color, and are very weak in methodology (how many news stories say this or that ..and WHAT is the makeup of editors and journalists who create the number of stories?)
Buzzfeed has claimed to have emails showing Bannon worked with racists to bring out the ‘whites’ but not only has this not been picked up by major MSM outlets (who would salivate at proving this) but even they have produced only quotes from the email redacted and have not to my knowledge put forth anything like the wikileaks level of dumping leading to the ability to confirm these claims.
While the goals of ending ILLEGAL immigration (not immigration), border security (promised in 1986, OBVIOUSLY as a lie to euchre the American public as part of the huge immigration reform act), ending Islamic terrorism, and ending the KIND of free trade which has gutted US manufacturing, and then service, and then seen BOTH engineering and R&D begin to flee, are CORRECT GOALS, I think Bannon is not the tool to achieve these ends.
He may be a good identifier of these goals, but he’s not the right man to come up with the plans the people can support to ACHIEVE these goals.

Security Guard Campos Missing

This keeps getting stranger and stranger

Fox:

Las Vegas security guard Jesus Campos disappears moments before TV interviews

Where in the world is Jesus Campos?

The Mandalay Bay security guard shot by Stephen Paddock in the moments leading up to the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history was set to break his silence Thursday night with five television interviews, including one on Fox News, Campos' union president said. Except when the cameras were about to roll, and media gathered in the building to talk to him, Campos reportedly bolted, and, as of early Friday morning, it wasn't immediately clear where he was.
“We were in a room and we came out and he was gone,” Campos' union president told reporters, according to ABC News’ Stephanie Wash.
Campos is represented by the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America, which did not respond to requests for comment from Fox News earlier this week.
Fox News' Sean Hannity tweeted out that Campos, who was scheduled to appear on "Hannity" Thursday night, “cancelled” his appearance.
Little is known about Campos, with few pictures to emerge of the security guard and no apparent online footprint surfacing to provide details about one of the central figures in the mass shooting.
SPFPA President David L. Hickey told reporters new information about the timeline of the attack -- for which Las Vegas Police and MGM Resorts have given conflicting accounts – doesn’t dispute Campos is still a hero for saving a maintenance worker and possibly stopping additional shots, Wash reported.
MGM Resorts issued a statement Thursday to “correct some of the misinformation that has been reported."
Tucker's Thoughts: It has now been nearly two weeks since the Las Vegas shooting and, unbelievably, nobody can answer even the most basic questions about what happened. #Tucker
“We know that shots were being fired at the festival lot at the same time as, or within 40 seconds after, the time Jesus Campos first reported that shots were fired over the radio,” the statement said. “Metro officers were together with armed Mandalay Bay security officers in the building when Campos first reported that shots were fired over the radio. These Metro officers and armed Mandalay Bay security officers immediately responded to the 32nd floor.”
In the most recent police timeline, provided Monday, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Paddock fired about 200 bullets from his room at the resort starting at 9:59 p.m. on Oct. 1 -- the volley in which Campos was hit -- and then began opening fire on the music festival crowd six minutes later.
Police had earlier said the opposite – that Campos was struck after Paddock started firing out the window.
Nearly two weeks into the investigation, authorities have yet to disclose a motive for Paddock’s attack, which left 58 dead.

UPDATE FROM PASTORIUS AND ALWAYS ON WATCH:

The comments to Pamela's post are worth reading.

This really does stink. And it gets worse by the day. If Campos was shot, wouldn't there have been an emergency room record of him being treated. Yet, no reports of him going to any hospital. And, since Mandalay Bay has numerous surveillance cameras, why hasn't any footage surfaced of Campos anywhere in the hotel that night? He could have been taped going into an elevator, coming down in a stretcher, after he was shot, but, nothing. And if he is not at home and "disappeared", why do security need to stand guard at his house. This is going to get even more bizarre in the coming days.

Gohmert on Awan IT Scandal: “Hundreds of Potential Federal Charges Here”



“Well, the people we asked to show up came because we can’t compel the FBI or somebody like that to come at a gathering like this was because it was not a formal hearing,” he said. “We were just, you know, wanting to gather information and hopefully, our leadership would become more interested because this is serious stuff. It turns out that not only was he often operating computers remotely. We found out that [Xavier] Becerra, Congressman Becerra, now attorney general out in California, that there were 5,400 at least unauthorized accesses to his computer. And it turns out the Awans had loaded different congress members’ iClouds and servers onto one so that anybody could access it without authorization. It’s terribly incredible. There are hundreds of potential federal charges here.”

Eating Their Own

Trouble in jihadist paradise as Al-Qaeda attacks ISIS in central Syria

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – The Al-Qaeda linked Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham rebel faction launched a big attack in central Syria, Thursday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) positions inside the Hama Governorate.
HTS began the assault by launching several attacks at the villages of Abu Kahf, Abu Al-Ghayr, Hisnawi, and Talihan in the northeastern countryside of Hama.
The Al-Qaeda group would ultimately retake control of these villages after killing more than ten Islamic State terrorists and destroying two armored vehicles in this Hama pocket. Since the morning, intense clashes have been reported between these former allies, as HTS looks to expel the Islamic State from this rural region.

I KNEW IT! Pokemon Go WAS An Evil Russian Plot!

Exclusive: Even Pokémon Go used by extensive Russian-linked meddling effort

(CNNMoney) Russian efforts to meddle in American politics did not end at Facebook and Twitter. A CNN investigation of a Russian-linked account shows its tentacles extended to YouTube, Tumblr and even Pokémon Go.
One Russian-linked campaign posing as part of the Black Lives Matter movement used Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr and Pokémon Go and even contacted some reporters in an effort to exploit racial tensions and sow discord among Americans, CNN has learned.
The campaign, titled "Don't Shoot Us," offers new insights into how Russian agents created a broad online ecosystem where divisive political messages were reinforced across multiple platforms, amplifying a campaign that appears to have been run from one source -- the shadowy, Kremlin-linked troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency.                              
A source familiar with the matter confirmed to CNN that the Don't Shoot Us Facebook page was one of the 470 accounts taken down after the company determined they were linked to the IRA. CNN has separately established the links between the Facebook page and the other Don't Shoot Us accounts.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump will strike a blow against the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement in defiance of international support for it on Friday, choosing not to certify that Tehran is complying with the deal in a major reversal of U.S. policy.
Trump will make the announcement in a speech at 12:45 p.m. EDT (1645 GMT) that will detail a more confrontational approach to Iran over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs and its financial and military support for extremist groups in the Middle East, U.s. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters.
Trump will also give the U.S. Treasury Department broad authority to impose economic sanctions against people and entities in the Iranian military, the Iran Revolutionary Guard, in response to what Washington calls its efforts to destabilize and undermine its opponents in the Middle East.
Trump's decision to decertify the nuclear deal will not withdraw the United States from the agreement, which was negotiated by the United States and other world powers during the administration of former President Barack Obama.
Trump will attempt to persuade the U.S. Congress to approve some separate measures to toughen U.S. policy toward Iran.
Tillerson acknowledged the strategy may not work.
"What we are laying out here is this is the pathway we think provides us the best platform from which to attempt to fix this deal," he said. "We may be unsuccessful. We may not be able to fix it. And if we’re not then we may end up out of the deal."

“Hating for the sake of Allah”

ABU IBRAHEEM HUSSNAYN says: ” Our religion says we must hate “innovations” like Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, and Chanukah, because Allah hated them.” “We must also hate those who say Muslim terrorist leaders have left the fold of Islam.”

United States Withdraws From UNESCO Because of It's Anti-Israel Bias


From State.gov:

Press Statement
Heather Nauert
Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC

On October 12, 2017, the Department of State notified UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova of the U.S. decision to withdraw from the organization and to seek to establish a permanent observer mission to UNESCO.

This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects U.S. concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO.

The United States indicated to the Director General its desire to remain engaged with UNESCO as a non-member observer state in order to contribute U.S. views, perspectives and expertise on some of the important issues undertaken by the organization, including the protection of world heritage, advocating for press freedoms, and promoting scientific collaboration and education.

Pursuant to Article II(6) of the UNESCO Constitution, U.S. withdrawal will take effect on December 31, 2018. The United States will remain a full member of UNESCO until that time.

Audio: Worker Warns Hotel of Las Vegas Shooter Before Concertgoers Are Shot At


From CBS:
LAS VEGAS — A maintenance worker said Wednesday he told hotel dispatchers to call police and report a gunman had opened fire with a rifle inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino hotel before the shooter began firing from his high-rise suite into a crowd at a nearby musical performance. 
The revised timeline has renewed questions about whether better communication might have allowed police to respond more quickly and take out the gunman before he committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. 
Worker Stephen Schuck says he was checking out a report of a jammed fire door on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay when he heard gunshots and a hotel security guard, who had been shot in the leg, peeked out from an alcove and told him to take cover. 
“As soon as I started to go to a door to my left the rounds started coming down the hallway,” Schuck said. “I could feel them pass right behind my head. 
“It was kind of relentless so I called over the radio what was going on,” he said. “As soon as the shooting stopped we made our way down the hallway and took cover again and then the shooting started again.” 
Police said Monday they believe gunman Stephen Paddock shot a hotel security guard through the door of his suite six minutes before he unleashed a barrage of bullets into the crowd of concert-goers, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more. 
The injured guard used his radio and possibly a hallway phone to also call hotel dispatchers for help.

'THEY'RE OK TO RAPE'

Yazidi sex slaves tell how sick ISIS predators raped them ‘to make them Muslim’

The unnamed victim also described how the sick thugs would grope breasts of girls they had captured to see if they were old enough to be raped

A YAZIDI sex slave has described how ISIS terrorists would tell the captives they had to rape them to convert them to Islam.
The unnamed victim also described how the sick thugs would grope the breasts of girls they had captured to see if they were old enough to be raped.
Her harrowing testimony was featured in the report Trafficking Terror, released by the Henry Jackson Society think-tank.
She said that Islamic State members would touch the chests of captured girls to see whether they had grown breasts.
If they had breasts, they could be raped, if not, they would wait three months to check again.
She added: "The men used to rape up to seven girls in one room, so everybody could see what was going on; the screaming was up to the skies.
 ISIS fighters use rape as a weapon. File photo showing captured girls in ISIS territory

"They were all screaming but they could not help each other. They had to watch and go through what was happening."
She described how one victim was kept in a room without clothes, gang-raped and was sold over and over to different groups of men.
Once she tried to escape and was raped by six men in one night as a punishment.
The Yazidi woman said female ISIS terrorists would tell captives: "You have to be raped to become a Muslim."
The report also revealed that ISIS is attracting rapists and paedophiles to fight for them by rewarding them with sex slaves.
Men with a history of sexual violence and domestic abuse are believed to have joined the jihadi group because of the organisation’s use of rape and slavery as a form of terrorism.
The promotion of sexual violence by the extremist group was a vital means of “attracting, retaining, mobilising and rewarding fighters” as well as punishing disbelievers.
The sexual exploitation of women and children alongside trafficking helped fund the caliphate and was used to lure men from deeply conservative Muslim societies, where casual sex is taboo and dating prohibited, the report claims.

H.R. McMaster calls 9/11 a “mass murder attack,” makes no mention of Islamic jihad terrorism

The issue is this: is the U.S. going to confront, and formulate ways to blunt the influence of, the motivating ideology behind jihad terrorism, or is it going to continue to ignore and deny that ideology, and pretend that jihad terrorism comes from something else? The answer to that question could well determine whether the U.S. prevails in this jihad, or is destroyed. H.R. McMaster is on the wrong side, and should be fired immediately.

He was addressing the expansion of the NSC from about fifty members in the 1960s, when it was run by Henry Kissinger, another CSIS speaker, to its current size of more than 360 employees.

“What has contributed to the growth over time, as well, from 50 or so to 167 is the emphasis on homeland security, especially after the mass murder attacks on our country on September 11, 2001,” McMaster stated.

GERMANY: Are we witnessing the beginnings of a new ‘Islamic Republic’ as German politicians consider recognition of Muslim holidays?

Germany’s Interior Minister, Thomas De Maizière, has just  announced that he is “ready to discuss” recognition of Islamic holidays in regions of the country which already have become Muslim-dominant. Federal recognition is not yet on the agenda, but likely could come at a later time.

TruthRevolt  (h/t Marvin W) Germany’s Interior Minister Thomas De Maizière has kicked up a hornet’s nest by suggesting the introduction of Muslim public holidays in the country. “I am ready to discuss whether we can introduce a Muslim holiday,” De Maizière, a senior member of Merkel’s current cabinet, said at a country’s ruling Christian Democratic Party’s (CDU) event on Tuesday.

Minister Maizière came short of calling for a nationwide Muslim holiday, but supported the idea having Islamic holidays in the regions with strong Muslim presence.

German newspaper Berliner Morgenpost reported German Interior Minister’s comments: Federal Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière’s statement about Muslim holidays caused a stir. It is already being heatedly debated on the internet.
