Vicki Kirby

What a charming young woman.

Via NRO:

The United Kingdom’s Labour party has suspended one of its candidates after she used her Twitter account to attack Israel and compare it to the Islamic State.

According to the Mirror, Vicky Kirby, Labour’s candidate for parliament from a district in Surrey, tweeted, “Apparently you can ask IS/ISIS/ISIL questions on Anyone thought of asking them why they’re not attacking the real oppressors #Israel?”

“We invented Israel when saving them from Hitler, who now seems to be their teacher,” she also said, adding that Hitler seems to be the “Zionist God.”

“I will never forget,” wrote Kirby, “and I will make sure my kids teach their children how evil Israel is!”

Biden: If GOP Doesn’t Do Something On Immigration, “Obama’s Going To Do It – And He’s Going To Do An Awful Lot”…

You heard him, GOP, do what Obama says or he will unleash the Imperial Presidency on you.

(WASHINGTON AP) – Vice President Joe Biden told frustrated Hispanic leaders Monday President Barack Obama is “absolutely committed to moving forward” on comprehensive immigration reforms “and he’s going to do an awful lot.”

Biden said Obama was determined to move ahead “with or without” Congress and “if they don’t get something done by the end of this year, the president’s going to do it.”

Biden’s remarks came as he and his wife, Jill, hosted a Hispanic Heritage Month reception Monday at their Naval Observatory residence.

He honored Hispanic education administrators and counselors, calling them “heroes in the classroom and community.”

CAIR Sends Copy Of The Koran To Every Mayor In Montana To Coincide With 9/11 Anniversary…

Nihad Awad

And shockingly, some people weren’t thrilled to find a Koran in their mailbox days before 9/11.

Via Great Falls Tribune:

Last week, I received a copy of the Quran.

During a heightened period of instability in the Middle East, beheadings of Americans by Islamic terrorists, and ongoing national security threats, the Council on American-Islamic Relations sent me a copy of the Quran for my reference library.

In its cover letter, CAIR cites a 2009 speech made by President Barack Obama in Egypt where he declared that America promised “a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world.” CAIR appears to be acting upon that speech literally, and now is taking its message to the local level. In fact, I’ve learned that all major cities in Montana have been receiving copies of the Quran as part of the organization’s public relations campaign.

On its face, the distribution of the Quran may seem innocuous. At any other time, I may not have been so bothered by its delivery. However, the package arrived three days before the 13th anniversary of Sept. 11. This is noteworthy.

CAIR’s cover letter does not acknowledge in any way the anniversary of our country’s worst terrorist attack. It’s not what the letter says, it’s what it doesn’t say. CAIR does not condemn terrorist attacks or recent actions by Islamic terrorists. The expectation appears to be that we’re to simply accept this peaceful gesture and overlook what terrorists are doing in the name of the religious book.

While CAIR would likely say that the Quran was distributed as an educational reference tool and in peace, the timing reflects very poor judgment; so much so, that one could interpret the mailing as an “in your face” overture. Americans could easily misconstrue the campaign as a subtle threat.

The mailing is no coincidence. Americans need to know about this program to consider its meaning, implications and intent as world events unfold around us.

Minnesota somalis

Via Minneapolis Star Tribune

From his shabby office in an old Minneapolis theater, Mohamed Farah plunges into a cyber war zone.

With just a few keystrokes, he’s inside the online recruiting world of terrorists. He logs into the Facebook account of a local Somali teen and up pops the iconic black flag for ISIL, the fluttering symbol that beckons the undecided to join the cause. He scrolls down, reading the posts of a boy enamored of terrorists and the promise of martyrdom:

“This life is the sunset. It rises and it sets. Hope we reunite in paradise.”

Farah exhales an audible sigh. “We’ve been trying to stop this thing since 2008, and we’re not even close,” he says.

Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has zeroed in on Minnesota, home to the largest Somali population in the country, as a target-rich recruiting ground for fighters such as the boy on Facebook.

Federal investigators, as well as community leaders like Farah, say a sophisticated new wave of extremism is trying to sell disaffected youth on joining militant brigades in Syria and Iraq.[...]

When Wilson first began investigating the recruitment of Minnesota Somalis by the Al-Qaida-linked group in Somalia — Al-Shabab — the main appeal was patriotism, defending the motherland from invading Ethiopia.

Today, the call to western youth to come fight in Syria and Iraq is based on religious duty; they’re told they must come help establish an Islamic caliphate governed by a radical interpretation of Islamic law.

“It does raise it to a more mature and radical level,” Wilson said.

What hasn’t changed is who is vulnerable. What the recruits of 2007-08 and 2014 have in common is a missing father or strong male religious role model, Wilson said.

Algerian Jihadists Answers Call From ISIS By Kidnapping French Hiker, Vow To Behead Him Unless France Halts Attacks On ISIS…

Via Daily Mail:

An Algerian group linked to Islamic State jihadists threatened to kill a French hostage within 24 hours unless Paris halts air strikes on the IS in Iraq, in a video posted Monday.

Jund al-Khilifa (Soldiers of the Caliphate), which has pledged allegiance to IS, said in the video that it carried out Sunday’s kidnapping of the Frenchman in a mountainous region of eastern Algeria where Al-Qaeda is active.

The hostage, Herve Pierre Gourdel, 55, white-haired and bespectacled, is shown squatting on the ground flanked by two hooded men clutching Kalashnikov assault rifles, as he asks for French President Francois Hollande to intervene.

‘It is up to Hollande, president of the criminal French state, to halt the attacks on the Islamic State within 24 hours of this statement, otherwise his national Herve Gourdel will have his throat slit,’ one of his kidnappers says in the video.

In the video, the kidnappers say they are responding to a call from IS, posted just hours earlier, for Muslims to kill citizens of countries taking part in the U.S.-led coalition against the jihadists who have seized of large swathes of Iraq and Syria.

Male Feminist Says “Ladies Night” At College Bars Part Of “Culture Of Sexism,” “Commodifies And Objectifies” Women…

You read that headline correctly, a male feminist (although he appears to play for Team Fabulous which makes it a lot easier to understand).

Via HuffPo:i

Some University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill students are protesting the “patriarchal culture” within the party scene at their campus.

On Sept. 16, students organized a silent protest of Deep End’s “Country Night,” which offered a discounted admission rate for female patrons at the bar near UNC.

UNC senior Trevor Dougherty, who organized the protest, told HuffPost Live the widespread industry practice of cheaper drinks for women fosters an “underlying culture of sexism.”

“Men pay more, women pay less and in that way, women are commodifed and objectified and this whole culture of mistreatment continues,” he said. “So we were standing up against this policy of reduced cover, reduced admission because it gives economic incentive to women to go, and it puts economic pressure on men to pay for everything. It just continues this patriarchal culture, and it’s unacceptable.”

Although some states, like New Jersey, have even gone as far as banning “ladies nights” altogether and some people have filed lawsuits over them, Dougherty, who is familiar in the music scene as a D.J., said these events remain “quite popular” in North Carolina. He suggested that the practice of offering women exclusive discounts at bars is more than just a form of discrimination.

“It’s the bait. It’s the meat market,” he said. “If there’s a hookup culture, if there’s a sex culture, that’s one thing, but when it’s so explicit … it just becomes clear that young women are the incentive.

French Foreign Minister Wants People To Stop Using Term “Climate Change,” Start Using “Climate Disruption”…

Now, everyone freak out over the threat of global warming climate change climate disruption!

(Reuters) – On the eve of Tuesday’s U.N. climate summit, the United Nations chief underscored the urgent need to tackle climate change by moving toward an energy-efficient, low-carbon global economy.

Speaking at the opening of Climate Week NYC, a set of more than 140 climate-related events across the city, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he had noticed much more urgency to address climate change than he had seen in previous U.N. gatherings on the issue in 2007 and in 2009, when governments failed at a Copenhagen conference to agree a new binding climate treaty. [...]

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, who also marched on Sunday, said people ought to “act every day as though every week should be a climate week”.

France has been chosen to host key U.N. climate talks in December 2015, where governments are due to agree a new global deal to tackle climate change. Paris is already working to bring nations together in a united effort, Fabius said.

“If we let emissions grow, catastrophic climate change will accelerate,” he said. That would mean more droughts, floods, human misery and international security challenges.

“I don’t use the term climate change – I think the more accurate term is climate disruption,” he added.

ISIS Thugs Use Saudi Fatwa To Rape Thousands Of Women…

Via NY Post:

Islamic State barbarians are raping thousands of women in Iraq and Syria to mass-produce spawn who’ll follow in their vile footsteps, The Post has learned.

Young militants are running wild to the chagrin of their more sophisticated and p.r.-savvy commanders, an Iraqi official told The Post.

The motivation of the rapists is twofold: They want to make ISIS babies — and they are just plain out for twisted thrills.

“You have these young ISIS fighters carrying machine guns and they . . . want to have sex,” the official said.
But their commanders, who are focused on their savage war, have ordered the young fighters to keep their zippers closed.

“The ISIS commanders take a more official position,” the source said. “They don’t want them to mess around with the women. They only want them to fight.”

The young rebels, however, aren’t listening to their commanders; they claim that they’re answering to a higher calling.

“The fighters say that they’ve been ordered to have sex by a cleric in Saudi Arabia,” the Iraqi official said. “It’s really just an excuse.”

Report: Lois Lerner Receiving $100,000 Annual Pension…

Our tax dollars, hard at work.

Via Politico:

… Lerner and Miles, a partner with Sutherland Asbill & Brennan, said they’ve spent “hundreds of thousands of dollars” on legal bills as she has been investigated by Congress and the FBI and sued by multiple conservative groups.

The couple, who live in a $2.5 million house in Bethesda, Maryland, where BMWs sit in neighboring driveways surrounded by lush yards and security cameras, are clearly well off. But now they’re more conscious of money, postponing Miles’ retirement, for example.

Lerner wants to work to help pay for her defense bills, though a source working on the congressional investigation said she’s receiving a $100,000 annual pension. But while even Miller, fired by Obama in the wake of the scandal, has landed on his feet at a Washington-based consulting group, Lerner is still untouchable.

The low-information voters haven’t been watching enough MSNBC these days.

Via Rasmussen:

[J]ust 22% of Likely U.S. Voters describe Barack Obama’s presidency as a success, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Nearly twice as many (42%) think the Obama presidency has been a failure. Thirty-three percent (33%) rate it somewhere in between. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Interestingly, only 43% of Democrats believe the Obama presidency has been successful, although just 12% think it’s been a failure.

Only 27% of all voters say it would help political candidates in their state if the president came to campaign for them, but 39% say a presidential visit would hurt the candidates instead. Twenty-three percent (23%) say it would have no impact on voters. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure.

Iraqi Deputy PM: ISIS Is A Creation Of The CIA…

And probably the Jooos as well.

Via NY Times:

The United States has conducted an escalating campaign of deadly airstrikes against the extremists of the Islamic State for more than a month. But that appears to have done little to tamp down the conspiracy theories still circulating from the streets of Baghdad to the highest levels of Iraqi government that the C.I.A. is secretly behind the same extremists that it is now attacking.

“We know about who made Daesh,” said Bahaa al-Araji, a deputy prime minister, using an Arabic shorthand for the Islamic State on Saturday at a demonstration called by the Shiite cleric Moktada al-Sadr to warn against the possible deployment of American ground troops. Mr. Sadr publicly blamed the C.I.A. for creating the Islamic State in a speech last week, and interviews suggested that most of the few thousand people at the demonstration, including dozens of members of Parliament, subscribed to the same theory. (Mr. Sadr is considered close to Iran, and the theory is popular there as well.) [...]

The demonstration on Saturday was the latest in a series of signals from Shiite leaders or militias, especially those considered close to Iran, warning the United States not to put its soldiers back on the ground. Mr. Obama has pledged not to send combat troops, but he seems to have convinced few Iraqis. “We don’t trust him,” said Raad Hatem, 40.

Haidar al-Assadi, 40, agreed. “The Islamic State is a clear creation of the United States, and the United States is trying to intervene again using the excuse of the Islamic State,” he said.

Kerry Still Claiming ISIS Is Not Islamic: Have A “Radical, Extremist Philosophy” But “It’s Not A Religious Outlook”…


Imam Kerry still going strong.

WILLIE GEIST: Let’s go back to the beginning why we’re even having this conversation, Secretary Kerry, is the question of ISIS and the question of how dangerous a threat it really is to the United States and there’s been some question. Some have said there is no imminent or direct threat to the United States. How dangerous is this group and have you all seen direct threats to the United States?

JOHN KERRY: This is one of the most dangerous groups that I have seen in my time in public life. Why? Because they have a radical, extremist philosophy cultish attitude. It’s not a religious outlook, it’s a self-described cult that is evil. They are avowed genocidists. They have already set out to kill Yazidis, to kill Christians, to kill Shia. They have declared enemy anybody who isn’t them and who doesn’t adopt their way of life.

Austria To Rewrite The Koran To Stop Jihadists From “Misusing” It…


The Austrians were shocked to learn that after taking out all of the pages with violence and misogyny on them they were left with only six pages.

DPA – The Austrian government plans a bill to create a standardized German-language version of the Koran, in order to prevent extremists from misusing the holy Muslim text, Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz said Saturday.

The bill was needed because Austrians should know the Koran’s content, said Kurz. Additionally, he argued mainstream Muslims are suffering because terrorists and their sympathizers are acting upon incorrect interpretations, said the minister, who is also responsible for integration policy.

A standardized Koran version is to be selected by Austria’s Islamic Religious Community, he told public radio Oe1. “We will be pushing for this vigorously,” he said. The provision on the Koran will be part of a bill to update Austria’s Islam Law from 1912.

Of the 500,000 Muslims in Austria, some 140 have joined the conflicts in Iraq and Syria as extremists, according to Kurz.

The IRS paid $5.2 billion in “fraudulent identity theft refunds” last year, a Government Accountability Office analysis has revealed.

In a report issued Monday, the GAO said the IRS stopped $24.2 billion in theft, but the extent of the fraud is “unknown.”

The 50-page report came with a set of recommendations for reducing fraud, including allowing the IRS to send more refunds electronically and consider shifting W-2 filing deadlines.

The report was compiled by the GAO at the request of the Senate Finance Committee and House Ways and Means Committee.

Senate lawmakers Monday said the report signals that the agency is in need of serious reform in order to protect taxpayers from security breaches and rampant fraud.
