Islamic State Jihadists Publicly Behead “Sorcerer” In Iraq…

Watch out, Harry Potter, you might be next.

BAGHDAD (AFP) — The Islamic State group said Thursday it beheaded a man in public on charges that he was a “sorcerer”

The jihadist group released pictures of the execution on a square in Nahyat al-Alam, a few kilometers north of the Iraqi town of Tikrit,

One picture showed what the IS statement called “talismans” found in the victim’s possession, but appear to be nothing more than prayer beads and a green Shiite banner.

Some residents who spoke to AFP said the executed man was a Sunni who had recently joined the police in Samarra, a town further south which is under government control.

The executioner was identified by some local sources as a top IS operative for the central Salaheddin province, of which Samarra and Tikrit are both part.

HHS Chief Sylvia Burwell Recruits Liberal “Faith Organizations” To Push Obamacare…

Sylvia Burwell

Via CNS News:

Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell met with “faith organizations from across the country” last week to ask them to help people enroll in federal health care insurance plans created through the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.

“We know that the most effective voices on helping folks learn about the Affordable Care Act are voices in their community and voices that they trust,” Burwell said to reporters following the “closed press” meeting on Friday.

“Faith leaders have a unique perspective. When someone in their congregation feels financial stress they know it,” she said. […]
While addressing reporters, Burwell was flanked by two people who attended the meeting: Sister Simone Campbell, executive director of NETWORK, National Catholic Social Justice Lobby and Amy Cotton, senior policy manager at the National Council of Jewish Women.

Campbell supported liberal causes, including the reelection of President Barack Obama. In September, Campbell and other nun activists did their third tour to fight what they say is “dark money” from Charles and David Koch to GOP political campaigns.

According to its website, Cotton’s organization takes “a progressive stance on such issues as child welfare, women’s rights, and reproductive freedom.”

The Patented Al Sharpton Racial Shakedown™ Going As Planned, Meets With Sony CEO Over Her Emails Joking About Obama…

At some point Sony will quietly write a huge check to Sharpton’s National Action Network and this will all go away.

Via LA Times:

Embattled Sony Pictures Entertainment co-Chairman Amy Pascal will meet with the Rev. Al Sharpton in New York on Thursday, a week after she apologized for a leaked email exchange in which she made racially insensitive remarks about President Obama.

Sharpton is among the chorus of critics who have suggested that Pascal should resign since the emails were released.

A spokeswoman for Sharpton confirmed that the two were scheduled to meet in Manhattan on Thursday morning after Pascal called Sharpton to discuss the emails.

It is the latest indication of the pressure Pascal and Sony have faced since being besieged by a Nov. 24 cyberattack in which hackers scooped up confidential documents, emails and employee information. It ultimately led to the cancellation of the release of the studio giant’s “The Interview” over hackers’ threats to security at movie theaters.

These are the benign at best emails the race hustlers are claiming is horribly racist:

In a November 2013 email exchange leaked by the hackers, Pascal asked producer Scott Rudin what she should talk to Obama about at a breakfast event hosted by DreamWorks Animation.

“Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?” she wrote, referring to the film about a freed slave. Later in the exchange, Pascal wondered if she should ask Obama if he liked two other African American-focused films, “The Butler” and “Think Like a Man.”

Pathetic: Paramount Bans Theaters From Showing “Team America” Because It Lampoons North Korean Leader’s Father Kim Jong-Il…

Hollywood is run by a bunch of gutless guppies.

Via Daily Beast:

Three movie theaters say Paramount Pictures has ordered them not to show Team America: World Police one day after Sony Pictures pulled The Interview from release. The famous Alamo Drafthouse in Texas, Capitol Theater in Cleveland, and Plaza Atlanta in Atlanta said they would screen the movie instead of The Interview but Paramount has ordered them not to do so. (No reason was apparently given and Paramount hasn’t spoken.) Team America of course features Kim’s father, Kim Jong-Il, as a singing marionette.

Pentagon Uses “Daesh” For First Time To Describe IS, Want To Take The Islam Out of Islamic State…

Ridiculous to say the least.

Via The Hill:

A U.S. military commander used the term “Daesh” to describe the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) at a Pentagon briefing for the first time on Thursday.

The term is the Arabic acronym for ISIS, but the State Department and coalition partners in the region use it since it also sounds like the Arabic word for “crush underneath the foot.”

“Our partners, at least the ones that I work with, ask us to use that because they feel that if you use ISIL that you legitimize a self-declared caliphate, and actually they feel pretty strongly that we should not be doing that,” said Army Lt. Gen. James L. Terry, commander of Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve. ISIL is another acronym used for ISIS.

“Daesh is why we are here. Daesh uses terror and fear to dominate people and reward themselves. It has demonstrated time and time again a disregard for life and humanity. It has also openly stated intentions to apply its trademark barbaric methods not only regionally, but globally as well,” he said.

It is not clear whether other Pentagon officials will begin using “Daesh” in future briefings.

Groan: The NHL Announces It’s Going Carbon Neutral To Save Planet From Global Warming…

Note to NHL executives: Moonbats aren’t exactly big sports fans (unless you consider male figure skating a “sport”).

Via National Journal:

The National Hockey League has committed to becoming the first major sports league to go carbon-neutral.

Under a partnership with the energy-services firm Constellation, the league will work with its 30 teams to slash its carbon emissions and purchase carbon offsets for all its emissions during the current 2014-15 season. The league is estimated to emit 530,000 metric tons of carbon this season through energy use at its arenas and offices, nearly 2 million miles of team air travel, consumption of goods, and other league operations.

“Our sport was born on frozen ponds and relies on winter weather,” said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. “Everyone who loves our game will benefit by taking an active role in preserving the environment and the roots of the game.”

Obama: I Am Jewish, “In My Soul”…

obama-israel-wall

Who knew (except for those crazy Islamic conspiracy theorists)?

Via Jewish Journal:

“What will you tell the President when you see him?” was my daughter Eva’s first reaction when I told her I’d been invited to the White House Channukah party (Actually, it was her second reaction. Her first was, “Take me!”). Kids are innocent that way. They don’t realize that when you have over a hundred people crowding the leader of the free world, it’s not so easy to get in a word edgewise.

But I got lucky. It’s not what I told the President that mattered, it’s what I heard him say when few people were paying attention. […]

“Mr President,” he said in his booming voice, “when I told my Christian friend I was coming to a Channukah party at the White House, he told me, ‘I didn’t know the President was Jewish!”

The President let out a serious belly laugh. But in all the commotion of people asking other questions and everyone clicking their smart phone cameras, it was easy to lose sight of the president to see if he had anything to say.

I kept my eyes straight on him. It was clear that the “President was Jewish” idea had intrigued him. After about three or four seconds, as he was walking away, and looking at no one in particular, the President just said, “I am, in my soul.”

Love It! Texas Theater Refuses To Let North Korea Win, Plans To Screen “Team America” And Give Out Free Toy Guns…

Team America scene mocking Kim Jong Il (note the threat by the U.N. to send him a sternly worded letter):

Via WaPo:

When hackers give you lemons, you’ve got to make lemonade.

One Dallas-area movie theater refuses to take the fallout from Sony’s epic data breach sitting down. In true Texas form, it’s dialed up the patriotism to 15 and announced plans to host a screening of “Team America: World Police” instead of the embattled assassination comedy “The Interview” next week.

“With cap guns for everyone … for free,” said James Wallace, who programs the Dallas/Ft. Worth Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, according to the Dallas Morning News. “Because you can’t spell freedom without free.”

Or, isn’t it “Freedom isn’t free?” Either way, free is almost always a good thing.

Wallace and his theater plan to make the Dec. 27 screening a celebration of America and its greatness — complete with guns, American flags, red white and blue streamers, balloons, and outbursts of “America! F*** yeah!”

Sony cancelled the premier of the Seth Rogen and James Franco flick after hackers stole terabytes of data from the company’s servers and threatened attacks on theaters that screen the movie. With the new threat, some of the biggest theater chains pulled out.

Australian Woman Admits Story That Started #illridewithyou Campaign To Protect Muslims After Terror Attack Was Almost Completely Made Up…

Another in a long line of  liberal hoaxes.

Via The Australian:

GAPS have appeared in the story that inspired the #illridewithyou Twitter phenomenon.

University lecturer Rachael Jacobs had originally posted a status on Facebook, explaining how she offered to protect a woman who felt uncomfortable wearing her hijab.

According to her story, Ms Jacobs had seen the woman beginning to remove her scarf, and ran after her, saying “Put it back on. I’ll walk with you.”

The exchange took place on a Brisbane train, while the Sydney siege was taking place in Sydney’s Martin Place.

However Rachael Jacobs has admitted that she “editorialised’’ parts of her story.

“Confession time. In my Facebook status, I editorialised. She wasn’t sitting next to me. She was a bit away, towards the other end of the carriage,” she wrote.

Detailing her thought process, Ms Jacobs now says she wondered if she even needed to help.“She might not even be Muslim or she could have just been warm!,” she wrote.

Boko Haram Jihadists Kidnap 185 Women And Children After Overrunning Village…

The Islamist “War On Women” still going strong.

Kano, Nigeria (CNN) — Boko Haram insurgents kidnapped at least 185 women and children, and killed 32 people in a raid in northeastern Nigeria this week, local officials and residents said.

Gunmen in pickup trucks attacked the village of Gumsuri, just north of Chibok, on Sunday, shooting down men before herding women and children together.

“They gathered the women and children and took them away in trucks after burning most of the village with petrol bombs,” a local government official said on condition anonymity for fear of reprisal.

News of the attack took four days to emerge because of a lack of communication. Telecommunications towers in the region had been disabled in previous attacks.

Local officials learned of the attack from residents who fled to Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, where the officials had moved a year ago to escape Boko Haram attacks.

The militants stormed the village from two directions, overwhelming local vigilantes who had repelled Boko Haram attacks over the course of the year, said Gumsuri resident Umar Ari, who trekked for four days to Maiduguri.

“They destroyed almost half the village and took away 185 women, girls and boys,” Ari said.‎

Ridden With White Guilt? In Need Of A 2015 Calendar? Then Today Is Your Lucky Day, Liberal Group Releases New “Racial Injustice” Calendar…

By next December you will have 12 new reasons to be ashamed of your white skin.

Via Equal Justice Initiative:

EJI is proud to announce the release of our 2015 calendar, A History of Racial Injustice. This full-color wall calendar expands on EJI’s previous calendars with new historical entries and short essays highlighting historical events and issues in our nation’s racial history.

The 2015 calendar is part of a series of reports and educational materials that explore the legacy of racial bias in the United States and its continuing impact on contemporary policies and practices. Many of today’s issues have been shaped by America’s racial history – the history of racial injustice in particular.

The legacy of slavery, racial terror, and legally supported abuse of racial minorities is not well understood.

EJI believes that a deeper understanding about our nation’s history of racial injustice is important to addressing contemporary questions of social justice and equality.

The calendar is designed to be a helpful tool for learning more about racial history. Expanded content from A History of Racial Injustice is now available in our online timeline.

FLASHBACK: In 2012 Michelle Obama Described Her Brush With Racist Target Shopper, “I Felt So Good” Helping Her…

Quite the turn around, eh Mooch?

From March, 20, 2012:

OBAMA: “That’s my Target run! I went to Target. I thought I was undercover! I have to tell you something about this trip tough.”

LETTERMAN: “Uh-huh.”

OBAMA: “No one knew that was me because a woman actually walked up to me, right. I was in the detergent aisle. And she said — I kid you not — she said, ‘Excuse me, I just have to ask you something.’ And I thought, ‘Oh, cover is blown.’ She said, ‘Can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?’ I kid you not! (Applause) And the only thing she said, I reached up because she was short, and I reached up and pulled it down, and she said, ‘Well, you didn’t have to make it look so easy!’ That was my interaction. I felt so good.”

Hundreds Of US Boots On The Ground Now Deployed In Iraq’s Anbar Province

Via Stars and Stripes

Hundreds of American troops are now in Iraq’s volatile Anbar Province helping the Iraqi military take on the Islamic State, according to the Joint Staff.

Currently, about 350 U.S. troops are stationed at Al Asad Air Base in Anbar. The force is comprised of advisers and support personnel who are assisting the Iraqi army, as well as security people tasked with providing force protection.

The troops that are on the ground are helping the 7th Iraqi Division with developing security strategies, mission planning, information sharing, and coordinating close air support operations.

Servicemembers currently in Anbar are not fighting alongside Iraqi forces or standing near the front lines calling in airstrikes, according to officials.[…]

We are still in the process of flowing in additional troops in the overall effort to Build Partner Capacity, which will enable Iraqi forces by providing training and expertise in military capabilities such as mission command, intelligence, maneuver, and sustainment and medical support,” Joint Staff spokeswoman Army Capt. Catalina Rosales said in an email to Stars and Stripes.

There are currently about 1,700 American troops in Iraq. That number is expected to increase to around 3,000 in the coming months.

Black Activist In HuffPo: Gay Groups “Complicit In Anti-Black Violence Through Their Silence” On #BlackLivesMatter…

Left-wing civil war?

An Open Letter to Mainstream LGBT Organizations That Have Remained Silent on Black Lives Mattering – HuffPo

… Why did we feel the need to write this open letter to mainstream LGBT organizations with a reference to the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act? Why have we felt the need to point to the failure on the part of the American populace to rightly acknowledge the atrocities that ended the lives of both namesakes? Because it illuminates the dangers of focusing on one type of identity-based violence — the violence that impacts LGBT people — while willfully ignoring the police and vigilante violence that impacts Black queer- and trans-identified people, as well as all Black people: Mike Brown’s bloodied and lifeless body was left on a hot Missouri street for 4.5 hours; the world bore witness to video clips of Eric Garner uttering his final words, “I can’t breathe!”, as a police officer choked him to death; Marlene Pinnock was brutally pounded by a white, male police officer on a highway in the middle of the day; and Black trans women like Erycka Morgan and Islan Nettles, and many whose names we do not lift up, continue to be viciously attacked and killed.

We can no longer sit idly by as you, mainstream LGBT organizations, center your movements and advocacy work on some within our varied communities but not others. We are no longer OK with the mainstream LGBT organizations among you who signal your complicity in anti-Black violence through your loud silence and deliberate ignoring of the types of systemic, institutionalized forms of anti-Black racism that negatively impact Black queer and trans people (and all Black people), disallow Black well-being, and deaden us.
