Pelosi: Women “Starved,” “Force-Fed,” “Could Barely Speak In Their Homes” In The Islamic World America…

Pelosi

A Democrat bashing America? I guess there’s a first for everything.

Via CNS News:

Victims then, and victims now: American women were not “given” the right to vote. They had to fight for it, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told a conference call on Thursday.

“It was a struggle all the way,” she said. “Women marched. Women starved. Women were starved. Women were force-fed. Women could barely speak up in their own homes.

“Women left their homes to take the message. And it was successful, and the right to vote, again, so precious, so hard fought…We hope women will continue to exercise forcefully, because then all of the issues we care about, whether it’s equal pay for equal work, paid sick leave, affordable quality child care, raising the minimum wage, women’s health and — and safety issues will all be well-served.”

The point of the conference call was to promote the Democrats’ agenda, dubbed “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds.” Democrats aim to win the female vote by casting women as victims who — 94 years after the 19th Amendment was ratified — are still in need of government help.

University Of Iowa Professors Dress As Robots To Protest “Sexist,” “Homophobic” Pink Locker Room…

Robot

God bless you, moonbats, you’re always a source of amusement in a dreary world.

Via Campus Reform:

A University of Iowa (UI) professor is protesting the venerable football team’s “sexist” pink locker room by marching around in a robot costume Friday afternoon.

Kembrew McLeod, director of graduate studies at the university, organized Friday’s march in order to draw attention to criticism of the locker room as some students and faculty have deemed its pink paint job sexist. McLeod also says the color condones homophobia.

“This trend away from hypermasculinity in sports makes it all the more unfortunate that the University of Iowa still hosts visiting teams in pink locker rooms,” McLeod wrote in a recent editorial.

The “ Million Robot March” falls on the annual celebration which honors former Iowa football coach Hayden Fry, the winningest football coach at the university. In 1979, Fry had the visitor locker rooms painted pink as the calming nature of the color could “put [the] opponents in a passive mood,” according to his memoir.

New ISIS Video Titled “2nd Message To America” Shows Kurdish Soldier In Orange Jumpsuit Being Beheaded…

Allah-approved.

Via Daily Mail:

Islamic State have released a new decapitation video, threatening America for the second time and urging the Kurds to break from their alliance with the West against the caliphate.

Just hours after Islamic State released shocking footage of the mass execution of 300 Syrian national army soldiers in the Syrian desert, Islamic State have issued a second warning to the United States.

The grainy video, accompanied by the hashtag ’2ndAmessagetoAmerica’, shows the vicious beheading of a Kurdish soldier, who was part of a group of 15 fighters likely to have been captured by Islamic State during the fighting in Iraq.

In the latest video, the captors first issue a warning they will continue to decapitate prisoners should America continue to support the Kurds in their fight against the Islamic State.

They then behead one of the captives on a sandy roadside in Iraq, where the Great Mosque of Mosul can be seen in the background.

Poll: Majority Of Americans Think Holder’s DOJ Motivated By Politics…

Which has been blatantly obvious since day one with his refusal to prosecute the New Black Panthers.

Via Washington Examiner:

A growing number of Americans say they believe the U.S. Department of Justice is motivated primarily by political interests and not by the pursuit of the truth, according to a survey from Rasmussen Reports.

The poll, which was conducted on Aug. 26-27 and contains a sampling margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points, found that only 38 percent of U.S. voters hold a favorable opinion of the department headed by Attorney General Eric Holder, while a much larger 53 percent hold an unfavorable opinion.

Further, of these respondents, only nine percent hold a “very favorable” opinion, while 26 percent hold a “very unfavorable” position.

But this is the really unsettling discovery in the survey: “Just 35% think the Justice Department is more concerned with making sure justice is done when it decides to investigate a local crime independent of local police. But 54% think instead that the Justice Department is more concerned with politics when it makes those decisions.”

UNREAL: White House Says We Are Not At “War With ISIS”…

Which I’m guessing will come as quite surprise to ISIS.

Via Business Insider:

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on MSNBC’s “All In” program.

The White House is insisting the U.S. is not at war with the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, despite an aggressive air campaign and previously labeling the jihadist group an “imminent threat to every interest we have.”

“Before getting into the strategy though, there seems [to be] a fundamental, existential question: Is the United States presently at war with ISIS, yes or no?” MSNBC host Chris Hayes asked President Barack Obama’s top spokesman, White House press secretary Josh Earnest, on Thursday night.

Earnest went with “no.”

“No, Chris. What we are doing is we are working very aggressively with international partners, with Iraqi and Kurdish security forces, to take the steps necessary to mitigate the threat that’s posed by ISIL,” he responded

ISIS Laptop Belonging To Operative With Chemistry Background Had Instructions On How To Weaponize Biological Agents…

Well that’s just a little bit . . . terrifying.

Via Foreign Policy:

Abu Ali, a commander of a moderate Syrian rebel group in northern Syria, proudly shows a black laptop partly covered in dust. “We took it this year from an ISIS hideout,” he says. [...]

The laptop’s contents turn out to be a treasure trove of documents that provide ideological justifications for jihadi organizations — and practical training on how to carry out the Islamic State’s deadly campaigns. They include videos of Osama bin Laden, manuals on how to make bombs, instructions for stealing cars, and lessons on how to use disguises in order to avoid getting arrested while traveling from one jihadi hot spot to another.

But after hours upon hours of scrolling through the documents, it became clear that the ISIS laptop contains more than the typical propaganda and instruction manuals used by jihadists. The documents also suggest that the laptop’s owner was teaching himself about the use of biological weaponry, in preparation for a potential attack that would have shocked the world.

The information on the laptop makes clear that its owner is a Tunisian national named Muhammed S. who joined ISIS in Syria and who studied chemistry and physics at two universities in Tunisia’s northeast. Even more disturbing is how he planned to use that education:
The ISIS laptop contains a 19-page document in Arabic on how to develop biological weapons and how to weaponize the bubonic plague from infected animals.

The document includes instructions for how to test the weaponized disease safely, before it is used in a terrorist attack. “When the microbe is injected in small mice, the symptoms of the disease should start to appear within 24 hours,” the document says.

The laptop also includes a 26-page fatwa, or Islamic ruling, on the usage of weapons of mass destruction. “If Muslims cannot defeat the kafir [unbelievers] in a different way, it is permissible to use weapons of mass destruction,” states the fatwa by Saudi jihadi cleric Nasir al-Fahd, who is currently imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. “Even if it kills all of them and wipes them and their descendants off the face of the Earth.”

When contacted by phone, a staff member at a Tunisian university listed on Muhammed’s exam papers confirmed that he indeed studied chemistry and physics there. She said the university lost track of him after 2011, however.

Militant Atheist Group Threatens To Sue High School After Seeing Players Pray For Injured Teammate…

The far-left Freedom From Religion Foundation at it again.

Via Fox News:

The injured player was on the ground being tended to by trainers and coaches.

So the Seminole High School football team did what many football teams do. The teenage boys took a knee, bowed their heads and prayed for their injured teammate.

But that simple act of compassion and humanity in Sanford, Florida sparked outrage from the Freedom From Religion Foundation – a group of perpetually offended atheists from Wisconsin.

An FFRF attorney fired off a letter to the superintendent of Seminole County Public Schools – accusing them of having an adult lead the prayer for the injured child.

A school district spokesman told me the injured child, who is the son of the team’s head coach, has since rejoined the team.

“It is our information and understanding that Seminole High School (is) allowing an adult, a local pastor, to act as a ‘volunteer chaplain’ for the football team,” FFRF attorney Andrew Seidel wrote.

The attorney said the school cannot “allow a non-school adult access to the children in its charge, and certainly cannot grant that access to a pastor seeking to organize prayer for the students.”

Pew Poll: Democrats More Afraid of Global Warming Than ISIS…

And libs wonder why nobody trusts them with national security

Via Breitbart:

Democrats are more afraid of global warming than the threat posed by the Islamic State terrorists, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

The poll shows that 68 percent of Democrats believe that global climate change is a major threat to the United States, compared to just 25 percent of Republicans.

In contrast, 65 percent of Democrats believe that ISIS is a major threat, three points less than climate change. Seventy-eight percent of Republicans cited ISIS as a major threat -+ a partisan difference of 13 points.

Pelosi Says, Unlike Gillibrand, She Never Endured Sexist Comments

Nancy-Pelosi_full_600

Gee, I wonder why.

Via Washington Examiner

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called comments reportedly made by male lawmakers to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand “absolutely ridiculous” and “disrespectful” but said she does not have similar tales of her early days as a House lawmaker.

Gillibrand, D-N.Y., is out with a new book, Off the Sidelines, in which she recounts a male senator advising her after her youngest child was born to avoid losing too much weight, telling her, “I like my girls chubby.”

Another lawmaker, this time a House member from a southern state, told Gillibrand, “You know, Kirsten, you’re even pretty when you’re fat.”

“It’s just appalling, the statements that Sen. Gillibrand referenced and I’m sorry she had to undergo that because it is degrading, but mostly it’s degrading to the person who made the comment, whether they know it or not,” Pelosi said during an afternoon conference call.

Jordanian State-Run TV Airs Sermon Claiming Jews Use Children’s Blood For Their Holiday Matzos…

More anti-Semitic garbage from one of our “allies.”

Via MEMRI:

In a Friday sermon delivered in Amman on August 22, 2014, Sheik Bassam Ammoush said that the Jews slaughter children to use their blood for matzos. Ammoush, a former Muslim Brotherhood leader who was expelled from the organization in 1997, was appointed minister of administrative development that year, and became the Jordanian ambassador to Iran in 2001. In 2011, King Abdullah appointed him to the Jordanian Senate. The sermon aired on the official Jordanian TV channel.

Following is an excerpt:

Sheik Bassam Ammoush: In Gaza we are dealing with the enemies of Allah, who believe that the matzos that they bake on their holidays must be kneaded with blood. When the Jews were in the diaspora, they would murder children in England, in Europe, and in America. They would slaughter them and use their blood to make their matzos.

Report: Syrian Children Forced To Watch ISIS Beheadings, Bodies Displayed On Crucifixes…

As seen in this video, it seems to be catching on among the kids living in the Islamic State’s “caliphate.”

(CNSNews.com) – The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant commonly carries out public executions in its Syrian stronghold on Fridays, forcing children to watch as victims are beheaded or shot at close range. Corpses are then displayed on crucifixes and decapitated heads exhibited on sticks for days afterwards.

The gruesome details are recorded in a new report released Wednesday by a U.N.-appointed independent panel investigating the Syrian conflict, now being described as “the world’s worst humanitarian catastrophe.”

Amputations, the stoning to death of women by “ISIS-sanctioned” mobs, lashings with cables, and the recruitment of children as young as 10 to fight are among other abuses committed by ISIS, said the report, which is based on almost 500 interviews and documentary material, and focuses on the six-month period up to Jul. 15.
