Nowhere in the rule book does it say that Democrats can’t play the race card against other Democrats.
With young House Democrats itching to break into the leadership ranks held by senior Democrats, the chair of the Congressional Black Caucus issued a veiled threat that his organization wouldn’t hesitate to smear the fresh faces with a racism charge in order to keep the top spots they’ve acquired over the years.
The issue has come up because some junior Democrats are calling for term limits for how long someone can hold the spot of ranking member on a House committee.

PESHAWAR: Hundreds of students protesting against a French magazine for publishing blasphemous cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) stormed a Christian boys’ school demanding its closure, officials and police said Tuesday.
Four students were slightly hurt in the incident in the town of Bannu on Monday, which happened as students from local colleges and schools demonstrated against the cartoons printed in French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo.
“A group of some 200 to 300 protesting students entered Panel High School after jumping its outer walls and forcibly opened the gates,” school principal Fredrick Farhan Das said.
Considered armed and dangerous…
…oops, I meant this Baby Obama.
Police in Denver would like the public’s help locating a suspect in an aggravated robbery and shooting.
According to police, the suspect in the crime has been identified as Zachary Bowyer, 21, who is only known to some people by the name “Baby Obama.”
The robbery occurred on Dec. 22. No other details were released.
Bowyer should be considered armed and dangerous.
Wait for the blowing of the dog whistles.
A study recently released showed that men who post more selfies scored higher on measures of narcissism and psychopathy.
“It’s not surprising that men who post a lot of selfies and spend more time editing them are more narcissistic, but this is the first time it has actually been confirmed in a study,” Jesse Fox told The Ohio State University.
Fox was the lead author of the study and an assistant professor of communication at The Ohio State University.
Fox said it is interesting that the men who scored higher on measures of psychopathy were also more prone to self-objectification.
You can’t make this stuff up.

Scary times when those two old fossils agree.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the former chair of the Senate intelligence committee, says she agrees with Republican Sen. John McCain that the U.S. needs Special Operations forces on the ground in Iraq and Syria:
“Let me tell you where I come down on it,” Feinstein told CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer. “I think our intelligence with respect to what’s going to happen in many of these countries is weak. Whether it’s because we do not have adequate human intelligence or not, I don’t know.
“But we have seen — McCain is right. We have seen this happen a number of times. We certainly saw it with the Ukraine and the taking of the Crimea and now what happened with the Houthis and–”
“In Yemen,” Schieffer interrupted.
“In Yemen, right,” Feinstein said.
“And with respect there, no one knows what is going to happen. The future is unknown, which really should not be the case. We know that the Houthis have said they would leave us alone, and yet their slogan is “Death to America, “Death to Israel.” They have deposed the president. The military has separated off.
“We have less than 300 Yemeni military guarding our embassy. So, I think there are a number of priorities there. One is to see that our people are safe. The second is to take a good look at our policy with respect to Yemen.
Jews, Christians, and every other religion on Earth not so lucky.
Facebook can’t coexist with Islam. Update to this previous story.
Facebook has chosen to comply with a Turkish court’s order to block webpages containing content offensive to Islam, according to several reports.
A Facebook employee told the New York Times that the company agreed to shutdown a number of pages with offensive content within 24 hours of the request, which threatened to ban the site from the country otherwise. Al Jazeera reports that Facebook called the court’s demand a “valid legal request.” It’s certainly not an empty one: Turkey has blocked access to both Twitter and YouTube over the past few years when they’ve refused to comply with government requests.[…]
Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg also voiced his support for the magazine(Charlie Hebdo) with his own Facebook post, in which he called his company “a place where people across the world share their views and ideas,” ending the note “#JeSuisCharlie.”
He never ceases to amaze.
Blow left out one little fact…
Via Washington Examiner:
On Saturday, Blow wrote on Twitter that he was “fuming” over a call he received from his son, a third-year student at Yale. He wrote that his son was “accosted” and held up at gunpoint by a Yale policeman because he fit the description of a suspect. Blow’s son, Tahj Blow, is an ecology and evolutionary biology major, according to the Yale Daily News.
In followup tweets related to the incident, Blow said, “This is exactly why I have no patience for people trying to convince me that the fear these young black men feel isn’t real.” He also tweeted the phrases “I can’t breathe” and “Black lives matter,” both of which are associated with two unarmed black men killed by white police officers in separate incidents in Missouri and New York.
Blow published a Times column on Monday with his thoughts on the matter. “I am reminded,” he wrote, “of what I have always known, but what some would choose to deny: that there is no way to work your way out — earn your way out — of this sort of crisis. In these moments, what you’ve done matters less than how you look.”
The race of the officer who detained Blow’s son is not mentioned in Blow’s column.
“The officer, who himself is African American, was responding to a specific description relayed by individuals who had reported a crime in progress,” said a Monday email to Yale’s campus community. The email was first noticed by The Root, a black-centric news website.

Tennessee and Nevada join the coalition.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Monday that both Nevada and Tennessee have joined the Lone Star state’s challenge of President Obama’s executive amnesty, bringing the total number of states fighting Obama’s unilateral immigration policies to 26.
“Texas is proud to lead a coalition that now includes a majority of the United States standing up against the President’s rogue actions,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement. “The momentum against the President’s lawlessness continues to build with Tennessee and Nevada joining the effort to protect our states from the economic and public safety implications of illegal amnesty. As President Obama himself has said numerous times, he lacks the authority to impose amnesty. His actions represent a blatant case of overreach and clear abuse of power.”
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen already heard oral arguments in the case January 15th, where Texas argued that Obama’s amnesty would create a new wave of illegal immigration that would burden state governments.
Then again, he is the Wahhabi King.
…Some Arab media outlets criticized Michelle Obama for wearing a blue dress, rather than a black one. Videos of the short meeting between Salman and President Obama showed the king leaving in the middle of the protocol, abruptly turning around and walking away, in order to go to prayer.
After the meeting, Barack Obama and Salman held a bilateral meeting that included Secretary of State John Kerry, Senator John McCain, National Security Adviser Susan Rice, Ambassador Joseph Westphal and CIA director John Brennan.
Like they ever used those words to begin with…

According to emails leaking to National Review, Al Jazeera America has banned a litany of terms typically associated with radical Islamic terrorists, including “Islamist,” “jihad” and “terrorist.” (RELATED: BBC: Don’t Call Paris Attackers ‘Terrorists,’ Because That’s A ‘Loaded Word’)
“All: We manage our words carefully around here,” reads the email, sent by Al Jazeera America head of output Carlos van Meek, “So I’d like to bring to your attention some key words that have a tendency of tripping us up.”
Among the banned phrases:
Extremist: “Do not use. Avoid characterizing people.”
Terrorist and terrorism: “One person’s terrorist is another’s freedom fighter. We will not use these terms unless attributed to a source/person.”
