British Labour Chief: You Know What I’m Gonna Do If I Become PM? Make Islamophobia An Aggravated Hate Crime…

Ed Milliband

Thanks to this guy, you’ll probably be hearing a push for this here…

Via Hot Air:

Via Breitbart, a reminder that Britain’s left remains a few steps ahead of America’s in legally sanctioning thoughtcrime. Here in the good ol’ free-market U.S.A., we still prefer economic sanctions for deviating from ruling-class orthodoxy. But give us time. As a much older nation, the UK’s had longer to make “progress.”

There’s a parliamentary election set for 10 days for now so Miliband’s speaking here with an eye to that. I wonder which group he’s hoping to goose into turning out with these remarks — devout Muslims or Britain’s Social Justice Warriors? Frankly, apart from women’s issues and gay rights, there’s probably not much difference between those constituencies anymore.

“We are going to make [Islamophobia] an aggravated crime. We are going to make sure it is marked on people’s records with the police to make sure they root out Islamophobia as a hate crime,” Miliband told the Editor of The Muslim News, Ahmed J Versi in a wide ranging exclusive interview.

“We are going to change the law on this so we make it absolutely clear of our abhorrence of hate crime and Islamophobia. It will be the first time that the police will record Islamophobic attacks right across the country,” he said…

Throughout his interview, Miliband insisted that he took “extreme care” in what he said but it still did not stop him in using the generic term of “Islamist terrorism” and inferring the cause was religious rather than political when suggesting more than once it was based on “perverted ideology.”

You Knew It Was Coming! Professor Claims Global Warming Caused Nepal Earthquake

CDcTgzAVAAA3CcA

They’re still trying to rescue many people, whole villages are reported destroyed, but yes, let’s use a tragic disaster to push our crazed political point!

Via Daily Caller:

So not only does global warming cause volcanoes, but it also caused the massive earthquake that rocked Nepal Saturday and killed thousands of people.

“It now appears that there exists a clear relationship between the global warming and earthquakes and other under earth activities,” writes Dr. Vivek Kumar Srivastava, an assistant professor at India’s Kanpur University.

Srivastava argues that when permafrost melts in the Arctic “and associated areas due to the increased global temperature, it is quite likely that the under located areas of the earth are affected due to alteration in the pressure on the earth crust.” He adds that when “water level on the seas and oceans increase due to the increased water quantity caused by the global warming, impact on the inside zones of earth can cause many tremors.”

Nepal and surrounding areas were hit with a 7.8 magnitude earthquake Saturday that toppled houses and killed more than 3,000 people. So far, officials say that a further 6,500 people have been injured and responders are continuing to rescue climbers around Mount Everest. On Sunday, a massive aftershock rocked the region, exacerbating the damage.

Obama Regime Fighting For Right To Use ‘Cell Phone Kill Switch’

Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 12.44.19 PM

Oh, try that, the one thing that will get millions of Americans in an uproar is trying to kill their cell phones.

Via Al Jazeera:

For nearly a decade, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has maintained a policy for unilaterally shutting down private cellular service, over an entire metropolitan area if necessary, in the event of a national crisis.

Adopted without public notice or debate, Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) 303, often referred to as the cellphone kill switch, has been shrouded in secrecy from its inception and has outraged some civil liberties groups battling to make the policy public.

A key hearing in that fight is set for next week.

“We have no clue what’s in it or what it’s about,” says Harold Feld, the senior vice president of Public Knowledge, a public interest advocacy group. In 2012 the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) filed suit in federal court seeking disclosure of information about SOP 303’s basic guidelines and policy procedures.

Obama Secretly Granted CIA Operating In Pakistan Exemption From Rules Governing Drone Strikes

Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 3.04.58 PM

If you have been listening carefully, the Obama regime is moving very quickly to try to whitewash mistakes surrounding the drone strike death of American hostage Warren Weinstein and Italian hostage Giovanni LoPorto.

They didn’t want to tell the press last week that the CIA had been behind the strike, reason being that it would reveal that they hadn’t followed normal rules trying to verify who was there, and whether the alleged targets represented an “imminent danger” to the U.S.

Via Fox News:

President Obama secretly granted the Central Intelligence Agency more flexibility to conduct drone strikes targeting terror suspects in Pakistan than anywhere else in the world after approving more restrictive rules in 2013.

The Wall Street Journal, citing current and former U.S. officials, first reported that Obama approved a waiver exempting the CIA from proving that militants targeted in Pakistan posed an imminent threat to the U.S. According to the paper, under that standard, the agency might have been prevented from carrying out a Jan. 15 strike that killed an American and an Italian who were held hostage by Al Qaeda-linked militants.

A military intelligence source confirmed to Fox News that there are indeed looser rules in effect for CIA strikes in Pakistan. If the exemption had not been in place, the CIA would have been required to gather more information about the target, and may have delayed or put off the January strike altogether.

Chief Moonbat Elizabeth Warren Gives One Word Answer When Asked About Hillary’s New Liberal Rhetoric: “Eh”…

1000

Cat fight!

Via Guardian:

Is Hillary Clinton co-opting Elizabeth Warren’s progressive message? Warren has a one-word answer: “Eh.”

The Massachusetts senator and liberal icon added to her inscrutable initial response in an interview with the New Yorker, telling the magazine: “She’s laying out her vision for the country and she deserves an opportunity to do that.”

But the opaqueness of her answer will raise eyebrows about Warren’s role as a Democratic party powerbroker as she continues to put pressure on Clinton from the left.

As the former secretary of state turns towards populism to shore up the Democratic base in her run for the White House, her rhetoric increasingly sounds like Warren’s. In an op-ed in the Des Moines Register on Monday, Clinton wrote: “The deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. Something is wrong when CEOs earn 300 times more than a typical American worker and hedge fund managers pay a lower tax rate than a truck driver or a nurse.”

“Conservative” Newsmax CEO Defends Clinton Foundation; FLASHBACK: Pledged $1MIL To Foundation…

ruddy

Christopher Ruddy, the CEO of Newsmax, wrote an op-ed today defending the Clinton Foundation. (Above is a picture of slick willy in his office.)

Ruddy’s defense of the foundation in Newsmax:

When I heard that Bill Clinton was making as much as $500,000 per speech and made many more millions in his post-presidency, I thought to myself, God bless him. This is the American way.

Former President Clinton’s speaker fees are probably in line with other former presidents who draw big fees, maybe bigger owing to his global popularity.

But God bless them all.

Business and organizations love to rub shoulders with iconic American leaders — though the money Clinton has earned is probably a fraction of what President George H.W. Bush made by signing up with The Carlyle Group, an international conglomerate that made most of its initial money from U.S. defense contracts and from foreign countries like Saudi Arabia.

The elder Bush served his country admirably over a long period, starting in World War II as a heroic pilot, and later in several public offices, including the presidency. He later got his reward after leaving the White House.

God bless George H.W. Bush.

So, it is not every day that I defend Bill and Hillary Clinton, or the Clinton Foundation.

In fact, it may come as a surprise to some. In the 1990s I was described by both James Carville and George Stephanopoulos as the Clinton White House’s No. 1 press enemy. But after Bill Clinton left the White House, I came to admire him and his post-presidential work.

FLASHBACK: The so-called conservative Ruddy pledged $1 million to the Clinton Foundation in the past:

Via Weekly Standard:

Conservative website Newsmax has pledged a very large donation to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, a new report in the Wall Street Journal states.

Newsmax, a conservative news organization, last year pledged $1 million to the Clinton Foundation over a five-year period, according to a spokesman for Chris Ruddy, the organization’s CEO. Mr. Ruddy has been friends with the Clintons since 2007,” reports the Journal.

“Through a spokesman, he said the donation wasn’t tantamount to an endorsement of Mrs. Clinton’s potential campaign, though he thinks she would ‘make a great presidential candidate.'”

Ruddy himself has even written a blog post for the Clinton Foundation website. The topic? “Public-Private Partnerships Advance Health Care in Mozambique.”

“Christopher Ruddy is a noted journalist and entrepreneur. He currently serves as CEO and President of Newsmax Media, one of the nation’s leading online news media companies. In 1998, Chris founded Newsmax Media, a multimedia publishing company that publishes online and offline content in the fields of news, politics, health and finance. Newsmax.com is consistently ranked as one of the country’s most trafficked news websites,” reads his bio on the foundation’s website.

Great News: In 1-In-5 U.S. Families, No One Works…

Another amazing example of the progress we’ve made under Barry!

Via CNS News:

(CNSNews.com) — In 19.9 percent of American families in 2014, according to data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), no one in the family worked.

A family, as defined by the BLS, is a “group of two or more persons residing together who are related by birth, marriage, or adoption. In 2014, there were 80,889,000 families in the United States, and in 16,057,000 of those families, or 19.9 percent, no one had a job.

The BLS designates a person as “employed” if “during the survey reference week” they “(a) did any work at all as paid employees; (b) worked in their own business, profession, or on their own farm; (c) or worked 15 hours or more as unpaid workers in an enterprise operated by a member of the family.”

Members of the 16,057,000 families in which no one held jobs could have been either unemployed or not in the labor force. The BLS designates a person as unemployed if they did not have a job but were actively seeking one. The BLS designates someone as not in the labor force, if they did not have a job and were not actively seeking one.

Via The Blaze:

The head of Human Rights Watch used Israel’s announcement that it is sending a team of emergency responders to Nepal to slam the Jewish state over its Gaza policy.

Israel, with a population of 8 million sent two jumbo jets carrying a 260-member emergency response team to set up a field hospital, mobile operating rooms and X-ray labs, as well as a military search and rescue team to look for survivors, as it did following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. The tab will likely run in the millions. The U.S. government initially pledged $1 million in aid and a disaster response team. Secretary of State John Kerry announced Monday the U.S. is providing an additional $9 million for response and recovery efforts.

Moonbat Writers Citing Mohammed Cartoons Withdraw From Event Over Decision To Charlie Hebdo…

French-satirical-weekly-Charlie-Hebdos-editor-in-chief-Stephane-Charbonnier-800x430

It’s almost like liberals are trying to enforce sharia law.

Via Raw Story:

Six writers have withdrawn from a PEN American Center event over its decision to honor French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo with its Freedom of Expression Courage award. The literary and human rights organization announced Sunday that the writers were disappointed by Charlie Hebdo’s representation of Muslims and its caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

The writers — Peter Carey, Michael Ondaatje, Francine Prose, Teju Cole, Rachel Kushner and Taiye Selasi — have withdrawn from the gala, which is scheduled to be held on May 5 at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The Paris-based magazine was attacked in January by Islamic extremists who killed 12 people. Editor-in-chief Gerard Biard, and Jean-Baptiste Thoret, a Charlie Hebdo staff member who survived the attack because he arrived late for work, are scheduled to accept the award.

“I was quite upset as soon as I heard about (the award),” Prose, a former president of PEN American, told the Associated Press during a telephone interview on Sunday night, adding that while she was in favor of “freedom of speech without limitations” and “deplored” the attack on the publication, giving an award signified “admiration and respect” for the magazine’s work.

“I couldn’t imagine being in the audience when they have a standing ovation for Charlie Hebdo,” Prose said.

Kushner reportedly cited her discomfort with the magazine’s “cultural intolerance” and promotion of “a kind of forced secular view,” as the reason for her withdrawal from the event, according to an email sent Friday to PEN’s leadership.

Islamic State Touts Its UK-Style Socialized Health Care…

Hayat Boumeddiene 'appears in Islamic State film' - 06 Feb 2015

Code Pink nods in approval.

Via BBC:

Islamic State appears to have released a promotional video for its own health service featuring NHS-style branding and an Australian doctor.

The video has not been verified but was being circulated by IS-affiliated social media accounts and bears all the hallmarks of previous IS productions.
Using an NHS-style logo, it introduces the “ISHS” – or IS Health Service.

It appears to have been filmed in Raqqa General Hospital in the Syrian IS stronghold of Raqqa.

The first doctor in the video talks about the establishment of a health ministry that regulates medical facilities across IS territory, including the Raqqa hospital, which he says has been refurbished.

A second doctor introduces the intensive care unit, which he says treats victims of military conflict and car accidents. A third speaks about the X-ray department, which includes a women-only unit.

The Australian doctor, who calls himself Abu Yusuf, says he travelled from his home country to join IS and is using his medical skills “as part of my jihad for Islam”.
He is shown treating newborn babies in incubators, in a section of the video set in the hospital’s apparently well-equipped paediatric ward.

EPA Spends $84,000 To Study Churches That Preach Climate Change…

Where they learn about the one true prophet, Al Gore.

Via WFB:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is spending $84,000 to study how churches can be used to combat climate change.

A taxpayer-funded graduate fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is examining 17 faith-based institutions that have implemented “sustainability initiatives” in the hopes of developing workshops to teach pastors and other religious leaders how to change the behaviors of their congregants.

“Climate change—which affects traditional faith-based efforts to improve human health, mitigate poverty and redress social inequity—is inspiring religious organizations to advocate for clean air and water, restore ecosystems, and conserve resources,” a grant for the project, which began last fall, states. “This project seeks to understand the empirical experiences of faith-based environmental efforts within communities.”

“Through what motivations and processes do congregation level sustainability initiatives emerge?” the grant asks. “What factors facilitate and/or hinder implementation of these initiatives? What environmental and community outcomes are perceived to have been achieved through these initiatives?”

For the average Iowan flipping open Monday’s Des Moines Register, the opinion piece from Hillary Clinton that it contains might suggest that the candidate’s brief listening tour was something of a success. It mentions five Iowans — just like them! — whose stories seem to have energized Clinton.

“Everywhere I went,” she writes, “I met Iowans with great ideas for how we can get there.”

The five Iowans mentioned in the article, however, were all attendees at one of Clinton’s staged roundtables and were invited by the campaign or the host. The five attended only two roundtables — somewhat undermining that “everywhere I went” line — attended by 13 total Iowans.
