Love It! Texas Theater Refuses To Let North Korea Win, Plans To Screen “Team America” And Give Out Free Toy Guns…

Team America scene mocking Kim Jong Il (note the threat by the U.N. to send him a sternly worded letter):

Via WaPo:

When hackers give you lemons, you’ve got to make lemonade.

One Dallas-area movie theater refuses to take the fallout from Sony’s epic data breach sitting down. In true Texas form, it’s dialed up the patriotism to 15 and announced plans to host a screening of “Team America: World Police” instead of the embattled assassination comedy “The Interview” next week.

“With cap guns for everyone … for free,” said James Wallace, who programs the Dallas/Ft. Worth Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, according to the Dallas Morning News. “Because you can’t spell freedom without free.”

Or, isn’t it “Freedom isn’t free?” Either way, free is almost always a good thing.

Wallace and his theater plan to make the Dec. 27 screening a celebration of America and its greatness — complete with guns, American flags, red white and blue streamers, balloons, and outbursts of “America! F*** yeah!”

Sony cancelled the premier of the Seth Rogen and James Franco flick after hackers stole terabytes of data from the company’s servers and threatened attacks on theaters that screen the movie. With the new threat, some of the biggest theater chains pulled out.

Australian Woman Admits Story That Started #illridewithyou Campaign To Protect Muslims After Terror Attack Was Almost Completely Made Up…

Another in a long line of  liberal hoaxes.

Via The Australian:

GAPS have appeared in the story that inspired the #illridewithyou Twitter phenomenon.

University lecturer Rachael Jacobs had originally posted a status on Facebook, explaining how she offered to protect a woman who felt uncomfortable wearing her hijab.

According to her story, Ms Jacobs had seen the woman beginning to remove her scarf, and ran after her, saying “Put it back on. I’ll walk with you.”

The exchange took place on a Brisbane train, while the Sydney siege was taking place in Sydney’s Martin Place.

However Rachael Jacobs has admitted that she “editorialised’’ parts of her story.

“Confession time. In my Facebook status, I editorialised. She wasn’t sitting next to me. She was a bit away, towards the other end of the carriage,” she wrote.

Detailing her thought process, Ms Jacobs now says she wondered if she even needed to help.“She might not even be Muslim or she could have just been warm!,” she wrote.

Boko Haram Jihadists Kidnap 185 Women And Children After Overrunning Village…

The Islamist “War On Women” still going strong.

Kano, Nigeria (CNN) — Boko Haram insurgents kidnapped at least 185 women and children, and killed 32 people in a raid in northeastern Nigeria this week, local officials and residents said.

Gunmen in pickup trucks attacked the village of Gumsuri, just north of Chibok, on Sunday, shooting down men before herding women and children together.

“They gathered the women and children and took them away in trucks after burning most of the village with petrol bombs,” a local government official said on condition anonymity for fear of reprisal.

News of the attack took four days to emerge because of a lack of communication. Telecommunications towers in the region had been disabled in previous attacks.

Local officials learned of the attack from residents who fled to Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, where the officials had moved a year ago to escape Boko Haram attacks.

The militants stormed the village from two directions, overwhelming local vigilantes who had repelled Boko Haram attacks over the course of the year, said Gumsuri resident Umar Ari, who trekked for four days to Maiduguri.

“They destroyed almost half the village and took away 185 women, girls and boys,” Ari said.‎

Ridden With White Guilt? In Need Of A 2015 Calendar? Then Today Is Your Lucky Day, Liberal Group Releases New “Racial Injustice” Calendar…

By next December you will have 12 new reasons to be ashamed of your white skin.

Via Equal Justice Initiative:

EJI is proud to announce the release of our 2015 calendar, A History of Racial Injustice. This full-color wall calendar expands on EJI’s previous calendars with new historical entries and short essays highlighting historical events and issues in our nation’s racial history.

The 2015 calendar is part of a series of reports and educational materials that explore the legacy of racial bias in the United States and its continuing impact on contemporary policies and practices. Many of today’s issues have been shaped by America’s racial history – the history of racial injustice in particular.

The legacy of slavery, racial terror, and legally supported abuse of racial minorities is not well understood.

EJI believes that a deeper understanding about our nation’s history of racial injustice is important to addressing contemporary questions of social justice and equality.

The calendar is designed to be a helpful tool for learning more about racial history. Expanded content from A History of Racial Injustice is now available in our online timeline.

FLASHBACK: In 2012 Michelle Obama Described Her Brush With Racist Target Shopper, “I Felt So Good” Helping Her…

Quite the turn around, eh Mooch?

From March, 20, 2012:

OBAMA: “That’s my Target run! I went to Target. I thought I was undercover! I have to tell you something about this trip tough.”

LETTERMAN: “Uh-huh.”

OBAMA: “No one knew that was me because a woman actually walked up to me, right. I was in the detergent aisle. And she said — I kid you not — she said, ‘Excuse me, I just have to ask you something.’ And I thought, ‘Oh, cover is blown.’ She said, ‘Can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?’ I kid you not! (Applause) And the only thing she said, I reached up because she was short, and I reached up and pulled it down, and she said, ‘Well, you didn’t have to make it look so easy!’ That was my interaction. I felt so good.”

Via Stars and Stripes

Hundreds of American troops are now in Iraq’s volatile Anbar Province helping the Iraqi military take on the Islamic State, according to the Joint Staff.

Currently, about 350 U.S. troops are stationed at Al Asad Air Base in Anbar. The force is comprised of advisers and support personnel who are assisting the Iraqi army, as well as security people tasked with providing force protection.

The troops that are on the ground are helping the 7th Iraqi Division with developing security strategies, mission planning, information sharing, and coordinating close air support operations.

Servicemembers currently in Anbar are not fighting alongside Iraqi forces or standing near the front lines calling in airstrikes, according to officials.[…]

We are still in the process of flowing in additional troops in the overall effort to Build Partner Capacity, which will enable Iraqi forces by providing training and expertise in military capabilities such as mission command, intelligence, maneuver, and sustainment and medical support,” Joint Staff spokeswoman Army Capt. Catalina Rosales said in an email to Stars and Stripes.

There are currently about 1,700 American troops in Iraq. That number is expected to increase to around 3,000 in the coming months.

Black Activist In HuffPo: Gay Groups “Complicit In Anti-Black Violence Through Their Silence” On #BlackLivesMatter…

Left-wing civil war?

An Open Letter to Mainstream LGBT Organizations That Have Remained Silent on Black Lives Mattering – HuffPo

… Why did we feel the need to write this open letter to mainstream LGBT organizations with a reference to the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act? Why have we felt the need to point to the failure on the part of the American populace to rightly acknowledge the atrocities that ended the lives of both namesakes? Because it illuminates the dangers of focusing on one type of identity-based violence — the violence that impacts LGBT people — while willfully ignoring the police and vigilante violence that impacts Black queer- and trans-identified people, as well as all Black people: Mike Brown’s bloodied and lifeless body was left on a hot Missouri street for 4.5 hours; the world bore witness to video clips of Eric Garner uttering his final words, “I can’t breathe!”, as a police officer choked him to death; Marlene Pinnock was brutally pounded by a white, male police officer on a highway in the middle of the day; and Black trans women like Erycka Morgan and Islan Nettles, and many whose names we do not lift up, continue to be viciously attacked and killed.

We can no longer sit idly by as you, mainstream LGBT organizations, center your movements and advocacy work on some within our varied communities but not others. We are no longer OK with the mainstream LGBT organizations among you who signal your complicity in anti-Black violence through your loud silence and deliberate ignoring of the types of systemic, institutionalized forms of anti-Black racism that negatively impact Black queer and trans people (and all Black people), disallow Black well-being, and deaden us.

Indiana Cop Asked To Stop Selling ‘Breathe Easy, Don’t Break The Law’ Shirts

Breathe east

Already placed my order for the shirts, now all I have left to buy for gifts is the Ole Smoky Moonshine gift pack.

Via Indy Star

Three South Bend Common Council members have called on a police officer to stop selling T-shirts that make light of the “I can’t breathe” refrain used in recent protests of the police killing of a New York City man.

Mishawaka Police officer Jason Barthel this week began selling T-shirts with the message “Breathe easy, don’t break the law” at a South Bend store he owns in response to a weekend protest at the University of Notre Dame.

Members of Notre Dame’s women’s basketball team wore T-shirts prior to Saturday’s game against Michigan emblazoned with the message “I can’t breathe.” Those were the last words of Eric Garner, a black man who died in July in New York City after a white police officer placed him in a chokehold while trying to arrest Garner for allegedly illegally selling single cigarettes.[…]

he city of South Bend is a frequent customer of Barthel’s store, South Bend Uniform, records show, with more than $64,700 in receipts since January 2013, the South Bend Tribune reported.

The Mishawaka Police Department referred calls seeking comment from Barthel to South Bend Uniform. The store’s voicemail was full Wednesday, and a message seeking comment couldn’t be left.

The store did defend its T-shirts in a Monday posting on its Facebook page.

“For those upset, please understand when we use the slogan ‘Breathe Easy’ we are referring to knowing the police are there for you!,” the store’s statement read.

The Dream Is Dead: Vermont Governor Kills Plan To Enact Single-Payer Health Care System…

Socialist heartache.

Via Politico:

Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin on Wednesday dropped his plan to enact a single-payer health care system in his state — a plan that had won praise from liberals but never really got much past the framework stage.

“This is not the right time” for enacting single payer, Shumlin said in a statement, citing the big tax increases that would be required to pay for it.

Shumlin faced deep skepticism that lawmakers could agree on a way to pay for his ambitious goal and that the feds would agree to everything he needed to create the first state-based single-payer system in 2017.

And that was all before Shumlin, a Democrat, almost lost reelection last month in one of the country’s most liberal states. And it was before MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, the now notorious Obamacare consultant who also advised Vermont until his $400,000 contract was killed amid the controversy, became political poison.

DOD: ‘We’re Not Going To Target Taliban Simply By Virtue Of The Fact That They’re Taliban’

Giving the Taliban the benefit of the doubt.

Via CNS News

As the U.S. combat mission in Afghanistan ends on Dec. 31, American troops will still conduct counter-terrorism operations, but only if the terrorists “directly threaten our people or our allies,” Pentagon spokesman Admiral John Kirby told reporters on Tuesday.

“And we’ve also said that we’re not going to target Taliban simply by virtue of the fact that they’re Taliban. So being a member of the Taliban doesn’t — doesn’t mean that the United States is going to prosecute operations against you for that reason alone.”[…]

As CNSNews.com reported, Mullah Omar just this past July urged Afghan soldiers and policemen to “come and wage jihad alongside with your own people and together with the mujahedeen of the Islamic Emirate against the common enemy in order to gain the bliss of the two worlds” (i.e. the present world, and the one to come.)”

On Tuesday, Kirby noted that Afghanistan remains a “dangerous place.” “We just lost two soldiers over the weekend in an IED attack. And it doesn’t mean that between now and December 31st that U.S. troops won’t be involved in conventional combat with the Taliban. It very well could happen.

Islamic State Releases Formal Penal Code: Execution, Severing Limbs, Crucifixtion, Lashing…

Grotesque brutality that comes straight from the Koran.

Via Free Beacon:

The Islamic State (IS) has published it own penal code, which harshly penalizes actions such as sodomy and blasphemy with punishments including execution, crucifixion, lashing, and the severing of limbs, among other penalties.

IS (also known as ISIL or ISIS) issued the detailed document as a “warning and a reminder to people living under its rule” that any behavior not in accordance with strict Islamic law will be cruelly punished, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which translated a copy of the penal code posted at a radical online depot known as the Jihadi Media Platform.

Radical militants associated with IS emphasized that they have a “commitment” to enforce the brutal doctrine “vigilantly,” according to MEMRI.

As IS continues to gain strength and devotees, it has staked out bolder and more confrontational policies governing the territory in its control. The release of a formal penal code is a sign that the terror outfit remains committed to regional dominance in the face of ongoing U.S.-led airstrikes.

The death penalty and lashing by whip features prominently into IS’s legal code, which is governed by Sharia law.

“Blasphemy against Allah,” for instance, is punishable by death, according to the legal code provided by MEMRI.

#BlackLivesMatter Targets Mall Of America For Protest And Shutdown, Mall Calls Police

The people of #BlackLivesMatter are organizing what they call a shutdown of the Mall of America in Minneapolis.

Naturally the Mall of America isn’t being fooled by Anti-Corporatism masked as “The New Civil Rights Movement” so they moved quickly and talked to Minneapolis Police.

According to a letter posted on FaceBook which was hand delivered to organizers of the rally the mall has alerted them to the fact that they will not allow a shutdown of the mall to occur and that Minneapolis Police will be on scene to prevent it.

Phi Delta Theta Holiday Photo Sparks Controversy, Pajama Boy Makes An Appearance

Following national conversations on race relations, Penn students were confronted with the issue on campus in the form of a holiday card.

On Sunday night, a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity posted what became a controversial Christmas photo on Facebook. The photo showed the brothers — most of whom appear to be caucasian — posing in holiday attire in a living room. Next to one of the brothers on the left of the photo was a dark-skinned blow-up doll.

In a draft of an apology emailed by College senior and Phi Delta Theta President Jimmy Germi to UMOJA co-chairs Wharton junior Rachel Palmer and College sophomore Ray Clark, the fraternity said that the doll was a Beyoncé sex toy originally meant as a gag gift at the group’s Secret Santa event.

“Given the larger conversations and actions taking place in the country, there’s never been a worse time to do what they did,” said College senior Keishawn Johnson, president of Penn’s chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

He referenced the conversations surrounding race relations sparked by the recent alleged police brutality cases in Ferguson and Staten Island. “It’s not just about police brutality, but about a society that puts a particular lens on African-Americans,” Johnson said.

Beyond the racial implications of the photo, students were also offended by the depiction of a female body through the use of a sex doll.

“The inclusion of a racially and sexually charged object in such a flagrant fashion displays a serious and immediate need for repercussions that reflect the severity of this misogynistic, racist offense,” a joint statement issued by the 5B — the five umbrella coalitions for minority groups on campus — and the Penn Consortium for Undergraduate Women said. “We—UMOJA, APSC, UMC, Latin@ Coalition, Lambda Alliance, and PCUW—firmly believe that when an event like this marginalizes one of our communities, it marginalizes us all.”

“What particularly concerns us is how flippant this deeply misogynistic and racist choice seems to have been,” an addendum from the PCUW read.

The draft apology, signed “The Brothers of Phi Delta Theta at the University of Pennsylvania,” said the Beyoncé sex toy was “distasteful” and that “once removed from the packaging, it bore no semblance to the artist beyond skin color adding to its offensive nature.” The apology said “there were absolutely no prejudicial motivations behind the gift,” but acknowledged that “the absence of racial motivation is no justification for this act of poor judgement and the decision not to include a sex toy in a holiday picture should have been an easy one.”

Islamic State Gets Pummeled In First Ever Clash With American Troops After Attacking U.S. Base…

Didn’t Obama mention something about Americans troops not engaging in combat in Iraq?

Via Inquistr:

American troops in Iraq had their first actual battle with ISIS troops, after the Islamist militants tried to overrun a base, an encounter that left the ISIS troops decimated and in retreat.

The attack took place near the Ein al-Asad base, which includes close to 100 U.S. military advisers. The U.S. troops, armed with “light and medium weapons,” and were able to inflict casualties against the ISIS fighters, forcing them to retreat, Shafaq News reported. The American troops were also aided by fighter jets, which directed air strikes against the ISIS troops that “silenced their heavy sources of fire.”

“US forces intervened because of ISIS started to come near the base, which they are stationed in so out of self-defense,” said Sheikh Mahmud Nimrawi, a prominent tribal leader.

Teen Whose Father Was Killed In 2008 Robbery Kills Would-Be Intruder At Grandmother’s House

One dispatched with the tax payer relief shot and another apprehended.

Via Charlotte Observer

A 20-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an attempted home invasion and robbery that claimed the life of the suspect’s younger brother Tuesday afternoon in eastern Mecklenburg County, police said.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said the suspect’s brother was shot and killed by a 14-year-old boy. The teen’s family has said the youth was trying to defend his grandmother from a suspect breaking into a window about 5:15 p.m.

Investigators said Isai Robert Delcid, 18, was fatally shot while he and his brother Carlos Delcid were trying to break into the rear of a home on Rolling Fields Road. The home is in a neighborhood surrounded by Mint Hill that is unincorporated and served by CMPD.[…]

In a 911 call released by CMPD, the teen’s grandmother tells a call-taker “somebody just broke in the house and we shot him.”

“The man was breaking into the window,” she tells the 911 operator. “He was halfway in the window. My grandson told him to stop and get out of here and he didn’t so my grandson shot him.”

The grandson can also be heard talking in the background: “I said ‘who is it’ and he wouldn’t stop. And he broke my – he broke my grandma’s window so I shot three times.”[…]

George Wyant, the teen’s grandfather, said Wednesday that he left the gun at the house “for protection.”

Wyant said Wednesday that someone had tried breaking into the house twice in recent months, but no one had been apprehended.

Afterward, Wyant said he had taken the 14-year-old to a shooting range to teach him how to use the gun.

Family had been victims before

The family had been visited by violence before.

On April 11, 2008, Wyant’s son-in-law and the 14-year-old’s father, Gregorio “Greg” Hernandez, was working on a car at Greg’s Automotive, the shop he operated on Albemarle Road. Neighbors reported hearing shots and the sound of squealing tires leaving the scene. Police arrived to find Hernandez, 35, shot to death.

“He was a mechanic,” Wyant said. “It was his garage. Someone came in and shot him to death.”

Two years later, a jury found Victor Vasquez guilty of first-degree murder for Hernandez’s killing. Vasquez was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. A co-defendant, Alfonzo Caballero, pleaded guilty in connection with the crime.

One Islamic State militant is alone responsible for killing 150 women, including pregnant women and young teenagers, because they refused to marry members of the barbaric militant army, according to Iraqi officials.

Abu Anas Al-Libi is suspected of mercilessly gunning down the women,most of whom were Yazidi, because they refused to enter into sham temporary marriages with Islamic State fighters simply to have sex in what the terrorists believe to be a Koranic loophole.

“Abu Anas Al-Libi killed more than 150 women and girls, some of whom were pregnant after refusing to accept Jihad marriage,” the Iraqi Ministry of Human Rights said in a statement.

Marquette Univ. Suspends Professor For Criticizing Liberal Colleague Who Banned Student From Arguing Against Gay Marriage…

LIbs are among the most close-minded people you will ever come across.

Via Daily Caller:

A tenured Marquette University political science professor has been officially barred from campus and suspended for writing a blog post criticizing a philosophy instructor who refused to allow a conservative student to debate the topic of gay marriage in her classroom.

The suspended professor, John McAdams, received a letter on Tuesday from Richard Holz, the dean of the Wisconsin school, informing him of his suspension.  […]

According to McAdams, Abbate told the student that topics like gay marriage would not be discussed because gay students might find it offensive and because, she said, “you don’t have a right in this class to make homophobic comments.”

According to McAdams, Abbate then suggested that the student drop the class, which he later did.

In his blog post, McAdams criticized Abbate’s actions, as well as the political climate at the Marquette, which McAdams says is steeped in political correctness.

Europe Removes Hamas From Terror List

Hamas needs money for future underground urban renewal projects.

Via IN News

Hamas, in both its military and governmental branches, has been temporarily removed from the European Union’s list of proscribed terrorist groups as the result of a technical legal blunder.

After Hamas filed an appeal against its terrorist list standing, the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg published its decision on Wednesday, with Hamas being removed due to claims that the group’s inclusion in the list was against EU procedures and without sufficient evidence.

The court said in a statement that Hamas’s inclusion was based on “factual imputations derived from the press and the Internet” as opposed to sound legal judgments. But it stressed that Wednesday’s decision to remove Hamas was based on technical grounds and does “not imply any substantive assessment of the question of the classification of Hamas as a terrorist group.”

The lawyer for Hamas, Liliane Glock, told AFP she was “satisfied with the decision”.

Many have noted the fault lies in the EU terror list rules requiring new information every six months to reevaluate. Apparently classified intelligence had not been used as proof due to fears of tipping off Hamas, and instead news reports were submitted.[…]

However, after the Court of Justice removed the Sri Lankan terror group the Tamil Tigers from the list a few months ago, Hamas followed suit and appealed on the same grounds of a lack of legal evidence.
