Shot: John Kerry Snubs Netanyahu To Meet With Iran’s FM Zarif – Chaser: Zarif Then Calls For “Annihilation” Of Netanytahu Regime…

The optics of this couldn’t look any worse for Kerry.

Via Times of Israel:

Iran’s Foreign Minister  acknowledged that his country seeks the annihilation of the “Netanyahu regime” but denied that it seeks to wipe out Israel.

In an NBC interview on Wednesday, Zarif finessed a series of questions raised by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his speech to Congress Tuesday, including over Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei’s tweet last year urging the annihilation of Israel, and about his own laying of a wreath at the grave of Imad Mughniyeh, the arch-Hezbollah terrorist responsible for the killings of hundreds of Americans.

Zarif said Netanyahu had been fanning “hysteria” since 1992 with the claim that Iran was two years from the bomb. “Once this fear mongering is out, then we can have a deal,” he said. Zarif also denied stalling the IAEA’s efforts to probe alleged nuclear weapons work. He spent much of the extensive interview castigating Israel for a series of alleged vicious crimes, while insisting on Iran’s tolerant and peaceful nature.

Kathleen Matthews, Marriott International’s executive vice president and chief global communications and public affairs officer, and wife of MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, is planning to run for the seat of Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.).

Van Hollen announced Wednesday that he’ll seek the seat being vacated by Sen. Barbara Mikulski.

A longtime resident of Chevy Chase, Matthews was a popular longtime anchor for WJLA-ABC7, then-owned by the family of POLITICO publisher Robert Allbritton. Matthews, currently abroad on business, has begun talking to Democratic activists and interviewing potential consultants.

Matthews, who has long talked about running for office, advocated Marriott’s move toward more progressive policies, including sustainability and LGBT friendliness. She pushed the company to open a hotel in Haiti after the earthquake — Bill Clinton attended the opening last month.

A top consultant told POLITICO: “Her successful career in local television plus her work for one of the region’s most respected employers definitely gives her a strong background to be a strong voice.”

American Inventor’s Anti-Terror Invention Uses Pig’s Blood To Stop Suicide Bombers, Muslim Leader Calls It “Deeply Offensive”…

You know what else is deeply offensive? People being torn to shreds by a suicide bomber.

Via Express:

An American inventor has unveiled an offensive “anti-terror” system designed to spray Muslims with pig blood.

The highly controversial device is the work of tinpot tinkerer Franklin R Lacy, who works in Tampa, Florida.

He has applied for a patent on a “system for protecting against terrorist and illegal invasion” which cruelly exploits the Islamic ban on eating or even handling pork. […]

“It will keep suicide bombers from blowing themselves up near the container of pig blood because they believe that they would be guaranteed not to go to heaven,” Lacy wrote.

Fiyaz Mughal, director of the interfaith group Faith Matters, said the device has “been created by someone who seeks to humiliate specific faiths”.

“The patent is particularly troubling if used against Jews or Muslims, because it would be deeply offensive and insulting to their faith and beliefs,” Mughal continued.

You know, because Islam is the religion of peace.

Via NSS:

The Muslim Action Forum (MAF), which staged a protest outside Downing Street against Charlie Hebdo in February, has launched a “legal strategy” to stop insults against Mohammed.

The organisation is also asking supporters to “lobby your MP” to make “Islamophobia” a criminal offence.

They state that they intend “to launch a series of legal challenges in the English Court system” because “depictions of our Holy Prophet peace be upon Him is the worst kind of ‘Hate Crime’ that can be perpetrated on the 3 million Muslims in the UK and 1.7 billion Muslims worldwide.”

The group says that they have “devised a legal strategy to prevent the continuous insulting and derogatory publications depicting and abusing the personality of our Holy Prophet Muhammad peace be upon Him.”

In a press release published shortly after the demonstration in February 2015, the MAF set out details of their plan to outlaw depicting Mohammed in the UK, through “amendment of some existing legislation and the presentation of a Private Members Bill that promotes the idea of Global Civility.”

Far­rakhan Has “Evidence” The Jews Behind 9/11…

Watch out Jooos, he’s on to you!

Via ADL:

While Part 1 of Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Farrakhan’s 2015 Sav­iours’ Day ser­mon largely avoided the topic of Jews, in Part 2 of his ser­mon (March 1), Far­rakhan alleged that Jews com­mit­ted the 9/11 attacks and con­trol the U.S. government.

The NOI’s Sav­iours’ Day pro­vides Far­rakhan with an annual plat­form to dis­play his hatred for Jews. This year, pro­mul­gat­ing a num­ber of anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­ries about Jews and 9/11, Far­rakhan explained to the con­gre­ga­tion at Mosque Maryam in Chicago that “thanks to the exem­plary work of schol­ars like Vic­tor Thorn and Christo­pher Bol­lyn, it is now becom­ing appar­ent that there were many Israelis and Zion­ist Jews in key roles in the 9/11 attacks.”

Cit­ing “evi­dence” from anti-Semitic 9/11 con­spir­acy the­o­rists that Israelis were sup­pos­edly “arrested imme­di­ately after the attacks but quickly released and sent to Israel,” that the attacks were a plot for the Jew­ish owner of the World Trade Cen­ter to col­lect bil­lions of dol­lars in insur­ance money, that “Israelis had fore­knowl­edge of the attacks,” and that “we know that many Jews received a text mes­sage not to come to work on Sep­tem­ber 11,” Far­rakhan con­cluded that 9/11 was a “false flag oper­a­tion” to start a war between the West and the Mus­lim world. Blam­ing Jews for 9/11 is a com­mon NOI tac­tic for ril­ing up anti-Semitic hatred.

Far­rakhan also invoked anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­ries about sup­posed Jew­ish con­trol of the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment. He claimed that U.S. for­eign aid to Israel is given “with­out con­sult­ing the Amer­i­can peo­ple because they [Israel and Jews] have been work­ing for years to con­trol your rep­re­sen­ta­tives in Con­gress, in the Sen­ate, in the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives.” He also claimed that Israel con­stantly acts against America’s inter­ests, but “they don’t fear Amer­ica because they con­trol it from within.”

Colorado School Suspends 6-Year-Old For Using Fingers To Make Shape Of A Gun…

Are adults still running schools these days?

Via KRDO:

A Colorado Springs first-grader was suspended from school after pointing his fingers at a classmate in the shape of a gun.

Six-year-old Elijah goes to Stratton Meadows Elementary School. On Monday, he pointed at a classmate in the shape of a gun and said, “You’re dead.”

According to his behavior report, an administrator spoke with him about what being dead means and about not confusing “make-believe” or things in games with reality. And he received a one-day suspension for threats against peers.

“I know they have zero tolerance, but more of a maybe no recess,” his dad, Austin Thurston said. “Going as far as a one-day suspension is a little extreme for a six-year-old in a first-grade class.”

House Conservatives Proving To Be A Thorn In Caving Boehner’s Side…

Boehnerwhome

Reach across the aisle Boehner is going to have an uphill battle. Gridlock is good.

Via WAPO

The House Freedom Caucus doesn’t have a Web site. It’s not completely clear exactly who belongs to the group. But in the just-completed fight over Homeland Security funding, it was hard to miss the influence of the insurgent conservative bloc as it clashed with GOP leadership.

The small group of far-right renegades has emerged as the latest embodiment of the internal GOP resistance to House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio); as a general rule, they are unpredictable, opaque and completely unwilling to back down from any fight against President Obama and his agenda.

As the unified Republican majority looks to the next big legislative battles over the debt ceiling, the federal budget and the Export-Import Bank, the Freedom Caucus may be the best illustration of how intra-party discord could dramatically slow the pace of business in this Congress and likely bring it to a complete halt.[…]

The chairman of the group is Rep. Jim Jordan (Ohio), a square-jawed former college wrestling champion who voted for Boehner but also received two votes of his own for the speaker’s job. In a Wednesday interview, Jordan said the caucus has no interest in a new campaign to topple Boehner. He sounded populist notes in explaining the group’s overarching goal.

“We’re here to stand up for those folks who we think get left out all too often,” he said. “Everyday folks. Working Americans.”

Jordan said the group meets at least weekly, typically on the first night when lawmakers get back into town after the weekend. Asked how many members the group has, he estimated there were about 30 but declined to name all of them.[…]

On Tuesday, Boehner, in another jam, caved and gave Democrats exactly what they wanted: a long-term DHS funding bill with no immigration provisions.

“This is an unmitigated loss for conservatives,” said Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.), a founding Freedom Caucus member.

ISIS Told Captured Yazidis They Must Become Muslims Or Get Their Throats Slit…

Yadzi

Can Harf remind us that this isn’t a war on Religion instead of the unemployed?

Via RFERL

“They told us that we must become Muslims, or they would slit our throats,” says Taolo Rasu, a 60-year-old disabled Yazidi man who was held captive by the Islamic State (IS) group for six months.

Rasu recalls one particular day when the militants came to inspect the Yazidi captives and threatened to kill him if he refused to convert to the extremist group’s hard-line interpretation of Islam.

“They put a gun to my head, and said, ‘If you do not become a Muslim we will cut your throat.’ So I told them that I had become a Muslim,” he says.

Rasu is from Sinjar in northern Iraq, a town that up until August 2014 was mostly inhabited by Yazidis, a religious minority. When IS militants overran Sinjar on August 3, tens of thousands of Yazidis were forced to flee to the mountains. The militants captured thousands of those Yazidis who did not manage to escape, selling women and girls into sexual slavery and forcing others to convert to their version of Islam.

Rasu, who is disabled with one leg, was released with a group of about 200 other senior Yazidi men and women in January. Speaking to RFE/RL’s Radio Free Iraq from a refugee camp near Dohuk, he recalls how IS militants came and took him and around 2,000 other Yazidis away.[…]

Among the group of Yazidis captured by the militants were many girls, women, and children, Rasu says. The militants took the girls and women away. “I myself saw them take about 50 [girls]. They took them for themselves,” Rasu told RFE/RL.

The Yazidis who were released in January were elderly, disabled, or sick, according to Rasu, who says that the militants told him and the others who were let go that they had been pardoned by the group’s commander, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Watchdog Group Demands Holder Sue Clinton For Missing Emails … Seriously

Eric Holder

Hands off the keyboard, don’t erase the emails.

Via Washington Examiner

In a new twist that threatens to divide top Obama officials, a watchdog group has demanded that Attorney General Eric Holder open an investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s missing emails.

And if that doesn’t work, the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust wants the Justice Department to sue to retrieve the emails that federal law requires be kept for historical and transparency purposes.

“The Federal Records Act does not create a private right of action under which citizens may directly enforce the law,” said the new group that goes by the acronym FACT.

“The Attorney General’s office, however, may bring suit to recover public records. Thus, it is in the public’s interest the Office of the Attorney General initiate an action to recover all of Secretary Clinton’s email correspondence from her private account during the time she served as Secretary of State,” they said in a letter sent to Holder and provided to Secrets.

FACT Executive Director Matthew G. Whitaker also delivered a Freedom of Information Act request to the State Department demanding copies of “emails that Secretary Clinton sent or received on any email accounts she utilized for State Department business.”

Another watchdog group, Judicial Watch, is also considering legal action to recover Clinton’s emails.[…]

Whitaker raised three concerns in his letter to Holder:

• It is initially troubling that the State Department was aware and permitted Secretary Clinton to solely use a private email account to conduct State Department business, tacitly approving of the practice and failing to ensure records were properly maintained.

• Additionally, the use of the private email system could be an attempt to avoid compliance with federal law, i.e. failing to maintain public records in violation of the Federal Records Act and avoiding disclosure of public records under the Freedom of Information Act.

• In addition to not being properly maintained or disclosed as required by law, use of the private email system also raises serious security concerns.

Support Rising For Boots On The Ground In Iraq…

This time around no restrictive ROE or early withdrawal.

Via The Hill

Support for using ground troops in the battle against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is on the rise, according to a new survey.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday found that 62 percent of voters in the United States would support using combat troops in Iraq and Syria. Only 30 percent would oppose it, and overall support for deploying troops against ISIS was strong regardless of party, gender or age.
Seventy-three percent of Republicans surveyed would approve the use of ground troops, as would 53 percent of Democrats. The poll also found strong support for ground troops among independents, with 60 percent saying they would back their deployment in the fight against ISIS.

The Quinnipiac poll shows a significant uptick in support for a combat mission. In late February, a Pew poll found that 47 percent would back boots on the ground. A separate CNN/ORC poll from the same month also concluded 47 percent supported the same outcome.[…]

Obama’s AUMF request has received a mixed reaction from Congress. Democrats say the restriction on ground troops should be tighter, while Republicans worry the plan is far too restrictive on the military.

Feminists Try To Claim Scott Walker Supports Rapists… Fail Miserably

Walker

Facts are so confusing.

Via The College Fix

Several left-leaning news sites recently reported that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker wants universities to stop reporting instances of sexual assault to the feds – a factually incorrect assumption that spread across the Internet like wildfire before the stories were retracted.

It began with an inflammatory article published by Jezebel on Friday that falsely claimed Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker “wants colleges to stop reporting sexual assault.” It came after the Wisconsin Legislative Fiscal Bureau released an analysis of Walker’s 2015-17 budget proposal on Thursday, which showed the deletion of a requirement that forces campuses to report incidences of sexual assault to the Department of Justice.

From this, Jezebel wrongly concluded that Walker is against reporting cases of sexual assault, and suggested as much in its initial report Friday.

The Daily Beast soon after tweeted, “Scott Walker’s proposal to delete the requirement that universities report sexual assault is causing him big trouble.”

Scott Walker’s proposal to delete the requirement that universities report sexual assault is causing him big trouble: http://t.co/x1P1jlhijh

— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) February 28, 2015

In an article written by a University of Wisconsin college columnist, the Daily Beast also reported “Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has proposed that universities no longer be required to report the number of sexual assaults on campus to the Department of Justice.”

University of Wisconsin College Democrats quickly took advantage of the anti-Walker buzz.

Phoenix Rice-Johnson, vice chair of College Democrats of Wisconsin, released a statement Friday describing the deletion of sexual assault reporting requirements in the budget as an “attack on student safety” that risks making the campus rape “crisis” across our nation worse.

She argued that this move shows the governor’s “reckless leadership.”

It soon became apparent, however, that these reports were all based on inaccurate information.

A UW spokesperson came forward soon after these stories broke saying that it was the university that pushed Walker to delete those measures from the budget.

According to UW system spokesman Alex Hummel, the university asked the governor to remove the language from the budget because federal law already mandates campuses to provide the information. Universities are also required to post this information on their website.[…]

Walker’s office confirmed that the deletion of the language on sexual assault in the UW campus budget proposal in no way changes the laws regarding how these crimes are reported. The Clery Act and Title IX and one state stature will continue to require universities to report acts of sexual assault on their campuses, regardless of language used in the budget.

At first the Jezebel writer refused to apologize and retract her story, Tweeting “I am not going to apologize for what was in the budget,” Twitchy reports. Eventually, both the Jezebel author and The Daily Beast retracted their stories, however.

Proposed Vegas School Policy Bars Staff From Discussing Students’ Transgender Status With Parents…

Clark-County-transgender

Little Joey from first grade is now little Sally in the second grade.

Via EAG News

The Washoe County, Nevada school district has implemented a new policy that allows transgender students to use the restroom and shower facilities of the opposite sex, and prohibits school staff from discussing students’ transgender status with their parents.

Meanwhile, a draft proposal of a similar policy has surfaced in the Clark County, Nevada school district.

The Clark County draft comes on the heels of a controversy that erupted last year when district officials proposed a new sex education curriculum that was far too explicit for many parents to stomach.

To add to the uproar, district officials reportedly only consulted with a few handpicked residents before floating the proposal.

The resulting protest forced the Las Vegas-based district to cancel any plans to implement the new sex ed curriculum any time soon.

But the behind-the-scenes maneuvering is apparently ongoing. The draft document for a new policy regarding transgender students, seemingly meant to be distributed exclusively among school staff, leaked out last last year.

In Clark County the policy is apparently still in the consideration stages. EAGnews attempted to contact the district for comment, but school officials only forwarded a statement referring to an existing policy addressing student bullying. They neither acknowledged nor denied the existence of the draft policy.[…]

he new policy in Washoe County, and the proposed policy in Clark County, have outraged Karen England, executive director of the Capitol Resources Institute, a California-based non-profit that’s also active in Nevada.[…]

England believes the transgender policies are the result of a progressive social/political agenda within public schools that goes beyond tolerance.

“It’s way beyond tolerance,” she said. “It’s a matter of bullying kids who don’t want the opposite gender in their restrooms, like there’s something wrong with them for feeling that way.

“This will also be confusing for some kids. We’re going to have second graders being told that they may not really be the gender of their birth. The message is going to be ‘You have to figure out what you really are – a boy or a girl – and that’s going to confuse and upset a lot of kids who aren’t even thinking about this issue.”

England said, as far as she knows, the Washoe County school district is the first in Nevada to adopt the new transgender policy.

Government Funded Theater Company Puts on Porn Play After Global Warming Play Fails…

Via WFB

The curtain closed on Pretty Filthy, a musical about the “human side of the porn industry,” on Sunday night, the latest play from a theater company that has received nearly $1 million from U.S. taxpayers.

The Civilians, an “investigative theater” group based in New York, has put on several plays financed by the federal government, including a global warming musical, and a play about a socialist Paris commune in the 19th century.

Pretty Filthy, the newest production from writer director Steve Cosson and composer Michael Friedman, was the “untold showbiz musical, based on interviews with adult entertainers.”

“Armed with their notepads and recorders, The Civilians crossed the mountain range that divides Hollywood from the ‘other Hollywood’—the San Fernando Valley, world capital of porn,” the play’s website states. “The artists conducted interviews and visited sets to get an insider’s glimpse into a world that is far more than the sum of its (very) visible parts.”[…]

While no taxpayer funds went toward the porn play, the Civilians has received numerous grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), totaling $944,177.

Cosson recently was awarded $15,000 from the NEA for a new play entitled, “The End and The Beginning,” which will be based on interviews about death and dying, and last year the Civilians received $20,000 for their “cabaret and podcast series.”

That series, “Let Me Ascertain You,” has featured podcasts on the LGBTQ community, celebrating “stories as diverse as a teenage lesbian shunned by her Jehovah’s Witness community, a master domination top who locks people up in his basement, a gay military soldier who attempted suicide, and the life of homeless gay youth on the streets of New York City.”

The latest podcast was entitled, “F*cking and Dying, Part IV.”

The company received a $12,000 NEA grant from January 2013 till June 2014 to support new plays from the Civilian’s Research and Development Group.

With 4 to 8 inches of snow expected to blanket downtown D.C. on Thursday, Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) is renewing her push to let the public sled on Capitol Hill.

Holmes Norton sent a letter to U.S. Capitol Police Board Chair Frank Larkin on Wednesday asking for the ban on sledding on U.S. Capitol grounds to be temporarily lifted for the weekend beginning on Thursday.

“The District of Columbia is expected to receive seven to eight inches of snow tomorrow, the largest snowfall this winter,” she said in the letter. “Families have started calling my office because they do not want to be turned away once again from sledding on U.S. Capitol Grounds.”

Holmes Norton, who asked the Capitol Police Board to nix the regulation altogether last month, said the Capitol grounds have one of the best hills for sledding in the District.

The ban on sledding on the slope in front of the Capitol has existed since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

“I was at the White House today with the president at an off-the-record meeting he was having with a bunch of columnists and there was radio silence on this topic,” Williams said.

While the White House press corps continue their fight for greater access to Obama, select groups of journalists and columnist are frequently invited to private meetings with the president, usually ahead of big speeches.
