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…

Lois Lerner

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.

Poll: By Nearly 2-To-1 Margin, Americans Consider Obama’s Presidency A “Failure”…

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”…

Kerry

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…

Koran

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.

Via Washington Examiner:

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.

Via Townhall:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has surged ahead of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke, as Burke has been forced to fire campaign staff responsible for copying her campaign’s job plan from other failed candidates.

The most recent Marquette Law School Poll, conducted September 11-14, found Walker enjoying a 3-point, 49-46 percent lead over Burke. This was a marked improvement for Walker who trailed Burke in Marquette’s earlier poll, conducted August 21-23, by 49-47 percent.

Burke’s week only got worse after BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski reported that portions of Burke’s jobs plan had been copied from four other Democratic candidates, three of whom went on to lose their elections.

Hundreds Of Children Are Leaving Germany To Join Islamic Jihadists…

German intelligence shows children as young as 13 are going to Syria and Iraq to join the Islamic jihadists.

Via The Local:

Hans-Georg Maaßen, head of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), told the Rheinische Post at the weekend that at least 24 children had headed to the Middle East from Germany. “The youngest was 13,” he said.

Of the 24 who have left, five children have returned with battle fighting experience, Maaßen said.

Among the 24, there were also four girls who, according to Maaßen, travelled with a “romantic ideal of marrying a jihadist.”

They married fighters who they met online, the BfV head added.

Around 400 Germans have joined jihadists in Iraq and Syria, security services believe.

The majority are young, male and poorly educated and around 130 have returned.

One 30-year-old Turkish man was arrested by a special police unit in Berlin on Monday after returning from an Isis training camp in Syria. He was allegedly trained in weapons handing by Isis in Syria from January to August this year.

WH Meets With Syrian American Who Openly Sympathizes With Al Nusra Front On Best Way To Arm Rebels…

Via IPT:

Fresh from congressional approval to arm and train Syrian rebel groups fighting the vicious Islamic State terrorist group, the White House met this week with Syrian American advocates to discuss how to proceed.

But one of the people consulted is on record defending and sympathizing with Syrian rebels tied to al-Qaida.

Mohamad Alla Ghanem, government relations director for the Syrian American Council, touted his White House visit on his Facebook page Thursday.

Last November, Ghanem wrote about a trip to Doha, where he got to meet Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a spiritual guide to the Muslim Brotherhood who has endorsed attacks against American troops in Iraq and suicide bombings against Israelis.

“I love this appreciated scholar very much,” Ghanem wrote, “even I adore his jurisprudence. I consider this a great honor. Now, I am over the moon.” Qaradawi has been banned from entering the United States and United Kingdom due to his support for terrorism.

But that’s not the only time Ghanem has praised jihadists.

In December 2012, Ghanem wrote a column in Washington Post in which he criticized the United States for classifying Jabhat Al Nusra as a terrorist organization. Sure, many Jabhat leaders are ideological on par with al-Qaida, he wrote, but not all of its members share that view. And the group “has achieved military successes and has delivered critical civilian aid.”

In a column published a week ago by The Hill, Ghanem noted a recent Islamic State attack that wiped out the leadership in the Syrian rebel group Ahrar al-Sham. It is perhaps “the most hardline Syrian rebel group,” and founded by al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri’s personal representative in Syria, but it is an Islamic State rival nonetheless.

Liberal Media Give People’s Climate March 4 1/2 Times As Much Network Attention As March for Life…

Via Business and Media Institute:

Not only did the broadcast networks spent more time on the People’s Climate March, than the March for Life, they portrayed it positively, ignoring all the radicalism promoted by participants.

NBC “Nightly News,” ABC “World News Tonight” on Sept. 21 and CBS “This Morning” and ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Sept. 22 gave a combined 3 minutes and 27 seconds to the climate march. That was four-and-a-half times the 46 seconds of stories that NBC and ABC evening news shows gave to the March for Life in January 2014.

Boosting the claims of protesters concerned about global warming, “World News Tonight” and “Nightly News” mentioned a recent statement from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) saying the summer of 2014 was the “warmest summer on Earth” on record. Neither pointed out that record keeping only dates back to 1880. That’s just a tiny fraction of Earth’s history after all.
