San Fran Photography Company Shuts Down Over Relentless Hate Campaign Directed At Them For Declining To Shoot Gay Wedding…

The Diversity Enforcers get another scalp.

Via SF Gate:

Confronted over their decision not to take pictures at same-sex weddings, a Bay Area photography company opted to permanently put on its lens caps and shut its doors, according to a statement posted on the company’s website.

Urloved photography, a San Rafael husband-and-wife team, said it had recently referred a San Francisco gay couple to another photographer for their wedding photos because they “have different personal beliefs that we have difficulty with.”

“We genuinely felt referring this couple to a photographer who does share their personal beliefs would provide them with the best service for their special day,” a statement on urlovedphotography.com reads.

The incident is only the latest of dozens of recent national disputes between gay couples and businesses who deny service while claiming personal or religious freedom. [...]

After being turned away by Urloved, one of the men, who asked to not be named, took the fight to Facebook.

“Great shots but this company denied me and my fiance, a same-sex couple, from their services. Stand up and say something about it,” he wrote Nov. 4 on one of the company’s postings.

The business owners, Nang and Chris Mai, apologized to the couple, then closed up shop after they said they were bombarded with nasty calls and e-mails.

“We have been flooded with hate calls, e-mails and accusations that inaccurately depict our business,” the couple wrote. “On top of that we have come to a difficult decision that we will no longer be in the wedding photography business.”

BREAKING: Ferguson Verdict Imminent, Prosecutors Preparing News Conference To Announce Grand Jury Decision…

Time to rumble.

(Reuters) – Prosecutors are preparing a news conference to announce the decision of the grand jury weighing whether to bring charges against a white police officer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, officials said on Friday.

The grand jury was still in session on Friday and no date or time for the decision announcement was known, the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office said. Officials have said a decision by the grand jury is expected by the end of the month.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder urged police to show restraint in dealing with any protests that may follow the grand jury’s decision on whether to indict the officer, Darren Wilson, in the Aug. 9 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

White House: Republicans Are The Ones Who Support Amnesty, Not Obama…

Earnest

Jedi mind-trick.

Via Breitbart:

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest is trying to claim it is Republicans who support amnesty, not President Obama.

On Fox and Friends this morning, he announced: “The president believes that we need to restore some accountability to this system and the truth is, I know my Republican friends like to talk about amnesty. The truth is, the closest thing we have to amnesty right now is doing nothing and that’s what House Republicans are doing.”

Week Before UAE Terror Designation, CAIR Gave Award To Leader Of Palestinian Islamic Jihad…

Nicely done, CAIR.

Via IPT:

Officials at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have expressed astonishment and confusion over a decision by the United Arab Emirates to include the American-Islamist organization on a list of terrorist groups.

“Well this is shocking to us in the first place,” CAIR co-founder and Executive Director Nihad Awad told CNN Tuesday. “It’s a bizarre move by the UAE and that’s why we’re seeking clarification by this decision, not only CAIR but other civil Muslim organizations including Muslim American Society and the largest Islamic relief organization for Muslims in the West. So it is quite frightening and shocking that a state like the UAE would designate an American civil rights and advocacy organization like CAIR.”

The terrorist list was first reported by Buzzfeed on Saturday, which cited a UAE state media announcement.

One week earlier, a CAIR banquet in California bestowed its “Promoting Justice” award to Sami Al-Arian and his family. Al-Arian was on the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s Shura Council – its board of directors – in the 1990s and provided refuge to at least three other board members in the United States, including current PIJ Secretary General Ramadan Shallah.

During a 1991 speech in Cleveland, Al-Arian was introduced as the head of a charity called the Islamic Committee for Palestine. “A brief note about the Islamic Committee for Palestine,” Imam Fawaz Damra explained to the audience. “It is the active arm of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine. We preferred to call it the “Islamic Committee for Palestine” for security reasons.” [...]

“The evidence was clear in this case that you were a leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad,” U.S. District Court Judge James Moody told Al-Arian during a 2006 sentencing hearing. “You were on the board of directors and an officer, the secretary. Directors control the actions of an organization, even the PIJ; and you were an active leader.”

Holder Warns Law Enforcement To Keep Their Hands Off Ferguson Protesters…

Holder also praises the protesters for accusing the police of being racists.

Via Weekly Standard:

Ahead of the grand jury in Ferguson announcing whether it will indict a police officer for killing a man in Ferguson, Missouri, Attorney General Eric Holder has released a video announcement telling law enforcement to behave.

“The Justice Department encourages law enforcement officials, in every jurisdiction, to work with the communities they serve to minimize needless confrontation,” Holder says.

“Over the past few months, we’ve seen demonstrations and protests that have sought to bring attention to real and significant underlying issues involving police practices, implicit bias, and pervasive community distrust.  And in most cases, these demonstrations have been both meaningful and responsible, and have brought vital issues to the attention of the public at large,” the top cop says in a video.

“I know, from first-hand experience, that demonstrations like these have the potential to spark a sustained and positive national dialogue, to provide momentum to a necessary conversation, and to bring about critical reform.”

White House: Republicans Opposed To Obama Acting Childish…

Via The Hill:

The White House on Friday chided Republicans for warning that President Obama’s action on immigration could disrupt work on other issues, with a top aide likening the threats to the “third-grade equivalent of taking your ball and going home.”

“There’s no reason you should not be doing those things you think are in the best interest of the country where there’s bipartisan agreement because you disagree with this,” senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast.

“The equivalent would be if the president said, ‘If you pass legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act that will poison the well and I refuse to work with you on anything else.’ That’s an illogical approach.”

Report: Islamic State Buying All The Gold, Silver, Copper They Can Get Their Hands On For New Currency…

One of the most frightening aspects of the Islamic State is that they are building an actual state.

IRBIL, IRAQ — The Islamic State is accumulating gold, silver and copper in markets throughout northern and western Iraq, dealers report, in an apparent effort to stockpile enough precious metal to follow through on a pledge to mint its own currency.

On Nov. 11, the Islamic State’s Beit al Mal, an ancient Islamic term akin to “Department of Treasury,” announced that the group would reintroduce the dinar currency of the Umayyad Caliphate, which ruled an empire that stretched from modern Iran to Spain for much of the seventh and eighth centuries. The announcement – which included images of three types of coins in gold, copper and silver – drew skepticism from experts, who doubted that the Islamic State could arrange a system to mint and issue a modern currency.

But interviews with dealers in precious metals indicate that the Islamic State has begun the complex process of issuing the currency, a reminder that as the best-financed non-state actor in history – with a revenue stream from oil sales and aggressive taxation – it’s been able to install bureaucratic controls over the large swath of territory it’s claimed in Iraq and Syria.

Hajj Samir, a gold trader in the city of Fallujah who asked that his full name not be used for security reasons, said that since the announcement, foreign jihadists had been buying all of the gold and silver in the city’s markets.

He said he alone had sold more than 15 pounds of gold to foreigners who were members of the Islamic State. “They said it was for gifts for their wives, but now I know why, and all the traders say the same thing,” he said. “We’ve been making trips to Baghdad to get more, and they buy all of it.

Ferguson Protesters Outside Police Department Chant: “What Do We Want? Darren Wilson! How Do We Want Him? Dead!”…

Death threats, how progressive.

Via NRO:

Protesters in Ferguson, Mo., have taken to the streets and chosen not to wait for a grand jury’s decision before clashing with police once again. A grand jury is expected to decide whether to indict police officer Darren Wilson, who is accused of shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown, in the coming days. But protesters made their voices heard outside the Ferguson Police Department on Thursday night shouting, “What do we want? Darren Wilson! How do we want him? Dead!”

Protesters gathered on South Florissant Road outside the police department and halted traffic. ​Police responded by coming out of the station and forming a line behind the barricade protecting the department.

Moonbat Professor Wears Dick Cheney Mask To Class, Pretends To Shoot Students…

Bush Derangement Syndrome still alive and kicking.

Via Campus Reform:

A political science professor dressed up as former-Vice President Dick Cheney (R) and pretended to shoot around the classroom.

In a video and photos obtained by Campus Reform, John Gruhl, a professor of political science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) donned an orange vest and Cheney mask and then pretended to shoot around his classroom.

Some students in the classroom can be heard laughing at Gruhl’s antics.

“When Professor Gruhl walked in to the class on Halloween dressed as Dick Cheney, I felt as though he had overstepped his boundaries as an educator,” Matt Server, a freshman political science major told Campus Reform. “By dressing up, and in my eyes, mocking the former vice president, I felt that Professor Gruhl had gone to another level in his attacks on Vice President Cheney. His costume, and subsequent remarks, were inappropriate for an institute of higher education.”

Obama Cites “Scripture” As Reason He’s Meeting With Illegal Immigrant In Las Vegas…

If this were a Republican president the left would be screaming “religious fanatic!”

Via CNS News:

President Barack Obama said in a primetime address to the nation last night that he will travel to Las Vegas today and meet with an illegal alien whom he intends, unilaterally, to allow to stay in the United States in violation of the nation’s immigration laws.

In explaining why he thinks this is the right thing to do, Obama cited an unspecified passage of “Scripture.”

“Tomorrow, I’ll travel to Las Vegas and meet with some of these students, including a young woman named Astrid Silva,” said Obama.” [...]

“Are we a nation that kicks out a striving, hopeful immigrant like Astrid, or are we a nation that finds a way to welcome her in?” said Obama. “Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger–we were strangers once, too.”
