Daughter of Pastor Gang-Raped by Muslim Men in Uganda: ‘Your Father Should Close the Church’

A 17-year-old daughter of a Ugandan Christian pastor was allegedly gang-raped by five Muslim men after her father ignored the men’s threats warning him to stop having worship services at his church located in the Muslim-majority Budaka district.

Morning Star News reports that an unnamed pastor, who preaches at the New Hope Church in the Kaderuna sub-county of the district, received a number of threatening messages and text messages telling him to disband his church in the area because it was responsible for helping lead locals to convert from Islam to Christianity.

Univision Owner: 2016 Presidential Race Over, Hillary Clinton Is The Winner…

Hillary will save Israel.

Via Washington Examiner

Haim Saban, the billionaire media mogul who owns the Spanish-language U.S. TV channel Univision, is apparently convinced that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is a shoo-in to the White House.

In a recent interview, Saban said it’s not a matter of if Clinton wins, it’s a matter of when.

Asked whether U.S.-Israeli relations would remain strong under a Clinton presidency, Saban told the Israeli news outlet Channel One News, “There won’t be any problems with relations between the United States and Israel when Hillary Clinton is president.”

Saban has a history of supporting Clinton. He donated more than $12,000 to her Senate and presidential campaigns between 1999-2008, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. In 2014, The Clinton Foundation, Clinton’s nonprofit, also received between $10,000-25,000,000 from Saban and his own Saban Family Foundation.

Univision is seen as an important media outlet in presidential elections which are increasingly influenced by Latino voters.

GITMO Prisoner That Met Osama Bin Laden To Be Released…

Via Miami Herald

A federal parole board has cleared another Guantánamo “forever prisoner” — a 37-year-old Yemeni who the U.S. profiled as having met Osama bin Laden — for release from the detention center in southeast Cuba.

“I am against violence. I don’t have the least intention to spend any more time with other detainees,” Mashoor al Sabri told the board last month. Although a Yemeni citizen, he said he was born and raised in Saudi Arabia, and would like to return to family there, in Mecca, notably an ailing mother with high blood pressure.

The three-paragraph decision, obtained Friday by the Miami Herald, said the board is recommending release “subject to appropriate security assurances” in consideration of Sabri’s “low level of training, renunciation of extremist ideology, and lack of a leadership position in al-Qaida or the Taliban.”

The Sabri release decision means that of Guantánamo’s 122 captives, 57 are now approved for transfer. The vast majority of them, as is Sabri, are Yemenis who are ineligible for repatriation because of the Arabian Gulf nation’s spiraling violence and powerful al-Qaida franchise. Ten other prisoners are in war-crimes proceedings, and another 55 are either candidates for war crimes trials or forever prisoners.[…]

The board recommending release noted that in his time at Guantánamo, Sabri had “generally compliant behavior” and had taken part in prison programs, by his account, nutrition, computer and health classes. He briefly made his plea for freedom March 3 in English, saying he had learned it at the prison.

Arab TV Commentators: Obama Supports Iran Because His Father Was a Shiite…

Obama getting back to his roots.

Via CNS News

Commentators on two different Arabic television programs claimed that President Barack Obama is pushing a nuclear deal with Iran because his father, Barack Obama Sr., was a Shiite Muslim, and President Obama apparently wants the Shia-run government of Iran to be victorious in the region.

The commentators made their remarks on the UK channel Al-Hiwar TV on March 25 and on 4Shbab TV in Saudi Arabia on April 10; the segments were recorded and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute TV Monitor Project.

“There is one thing we must not forget,” said Syrian writer Muhydin Lazikani on Hiwar TV. “I am not peddling some theory, and I am not being racist. But Barack Hussein Obama is the son of a Shiite Kenyan father.”

“He spent much of his childhood in Mombasa, south Kenya,” said Lazikani. “I visited this very area, and I can tell you that it is mostly Shiite. All the childhood memories of the man who rules the White House are Shiite memories.”[…]

On 4ShbabTV, April 10, Abu Muntasir Al-Baloushi, a London-based Iranian Opposition activist, said, “Barack Hussein Obama is the son of a Shiite father.”

He then said, “There is no doubt that he is Iran’s lifesaver. Some people call him the Iranian lobby in America. He suffers from a peculiar complex. He believes that ‘wherever we go, the Sunnis are fighting us.’”

“So what is the historical solution?” said Al-Baloushi. “Shiite expansion is ready. So he imposed this Shiite expansion on Iraq, Syria, Iran, and Afghanistan. Any wise enemy of Islam realizes that Shiite expansion is the best method to destroy Islam from within. Even America did not do what the Shiites have done in Iraq. Even the Zionist Jews did not do such things to the Palestinians.”

NLRB May Gut Right To Work Laws

NLRB-AP

Obama stacked the board so it could do his dirty work. What do laws that the people’s representatives voted for mean anyway?

Via Freebeacon:

The federal government’s top labor arbiter may use its regulatory power to force non-union employees in right to work states pay union dues.

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) put out a call for legal briefs on Wednesday asking labor law scholars to weigh in on whether unions should have the ability to extract dues payments from non-members. The announcement drew immediate criticism from right to work activists.

“It is unfortunately not surprising that the Obama NLRB is now actively working to undermine the 25 state Right to Work laws. Its ‘call for briefs’ signals this NLRB’s intention to reverse over 60 years of Board precedent to give union bosses an unprecedented tool to eviscerate employees’ Right to Work protections,” Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Committee, said in a release.

Australia Arrests 5 For ISIS-Inspired Terror Plot Scheduled For ANZAC Day…

Via Yahoo News

Five Australian teenagers were arrested Saturday on suspicion of plotting an Islamic State group-inspired terrorist attack at a Veterans’ Day ceremony that included targeting police officers, officials said.

The suspects included two 18-year-olds who are alleged to have been preparing an attack at the ANZAC Day ceremony in Melbourne later this month, Australian Federal Police Acting Deputy Commissioner Neil Gaughan told reporters.

Another 18-year-old was arrested on weapons charges, and two other men, aged 18 and 19, were in custody and assisting police. All the arrests took place in Melbourne.

ANZAC Day is the annual April 25 commemoration of the 1915 Gallipoli landings — the first major military action fought by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps during World War I.

Police said they believe the plot was inspired by the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS, and was to have involved “edged weapons.”

“At this stage, we have no information that it was a planned beheading. But there was reference to an attack on police,” Gaughan said. “Some evidence that we have collected at a couple of the scenes, and some other information we have, leads us to believe that this particular matter was ISIS-inspired.”[…]

Phelan said the teens arrested Saturday were on officials’ radar for months, but the investigation was ramped up when it appeared they were planning a specific attack.

“This is a new paradigm for police,” Phelan said. “These types of attacks that are planned are very rudimentary and simple. … All you need these days is a knife, a flag and a camera and one can commit a terrorist act.”

New VA Scandals Call Into Question Agency’s Ability To Clean House

041715_ff_cva_640

Via Fox News:

Nearly a year after a scandal rocked the Department of Veterans Affairs, revealing that the agency’s centers nationwide were manipulating records to hide dangerously long patient wait times, the bad news just keeps on coming — calling into question the agency’s promise to clean house.

Ignored claims, manipulated records, cost overruns and even one facility infested with insects and rodents are among the latest issues uncovered by a blistering VA Inspector General’s report.

The auditor’s probe found that more than 31,000 inquiries placed by veterans to the Philadelphia Regional VA office call center went ignored for more than 312 days, even though they were supposed to be answered in five.

Perhaps even worse, claim dates were manipulated to hide delays, $2.2 million in improper payments were made because of duplicate records, 22,000 pieces of returned mail went ignored and some 16,600 documents involving patient records and dating back to 2011 were never scanned into the system.

Liz Warren To Take Center Stage At California Democratic Party Gathering…

Run Liz

In the interim Hillary is still trying to connect with everyday Americans.

Via LA Times

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a populist who some liberals hope will seek the White House in 2016 — despite her many denials — will keynote the California Democratic Party convention in May, the party announced Thursday. Former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) will also address delegates.

“Sen. Warren and retired Rep. Frank embody Democrats’ fight for fairness in our economy and financial reforms that reward Americans’ hard work and hope for the future,” said state party Chairman John Burton. “As California Democrats, we’re proud to count so many elected leaders who are in the same tradition and are showing leadership through action.”

While Warren has spurned efforts by supporters to draft her for a presidential run, she appears to be tilting the 2016 presidential campaign. Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who announced her White House run on Sunday, has adopted Warren’s populist tone during her early forays on the campaign trail.[…]

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is among the other Democrats weighing a presidential bid and is expected to make a decision by late May. O’Malley addressed California Democrats in 2014.

State party gatherings, which draw thousands of delegates and supporters, typically are magnets for Democratic presidential candidates. In 2007, the last time there was a competitive contest for the Democratic nomination, Clinton, then-Sens. Barack Obama and Chris Dodd, former Sen. John Edwards and former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson were among the speakers.

Here Are The Paranoid Creepy Rules Hillary Set For The Everyday People To Meet With Her

Via The Right Scoop:

Now the rules have come out for being an “every day American” that got to meet Hillary on the campaign:

“I get there, and the first thing he said was, ‘I need you to sign this release.’ And I said, ‘Why? Who’s going to be here?’” Yowell explained. ”

The people who had coffee with Clinton had to sign the release forms because the event was filmed for a video the Clinton campaign released on Friday. However, everyone who spoke to Business Insider said they weren’t able to get take their own pictures of the meeting because Price asked to take their phones before the encounter.

“I was so excited,” Yowell said. “But then they took our cellphones and I was, like, ‘But I can’t call and tell anyone?’”

“We had to turn our cellphones in to them before we went in,” Nelson said. “We all handed them over.”

All the attendees who spoke with Business Insider said they didn’t mind being asked to turn over their cellphones before meeting with Clinton as it allowed for privacy.

“I think they didn’t want us saying, you know, emailing our friends while were there,” Nelson said. “That place would have been mobbed.”

Yowell pointed to the fact Clinton’s first stop on the campaign trail on Tuesday attracted a pack of reporters who chased after her van.

Thieves Steal Deadly Radioactive Material In Mexico, Five States On Alert

mexico-radioactive-theft-warning.si

Via RT:

Authorities have issued emergency warnings to five Mexican states after it was reported that thieves had stolen potentially deadly radioactive material, the latest such heist to strike the Latin American country.

The interior ministry issued an alert in the states of Tabasco, Campeche, Chiapas, Oaxaca and Veracruz that a container holding iridium-192 – a man-made radioactive element that can cause burns, acute radiation sickness and even death – was stolen on Monday from a truck in Cardenas, a town in southern Tabasco.

“This source is very dangerous to people if it is removed from its container,” the statement said.

The theft of the radioactive material was reported by the company Garantia Radiografica e Ingenieria on Monday.
The ministry added the material “could cause permanent injuries to the person who handles it or who has been in contact with it for a brief time (minutes or hours).”

Union Complains Of Intimidation In Right To Work State, Postpones Election At Boeing SC Plant…

Boeing Charleston Facility

The South doesn’t cotton to blue State Unions.

Via Reuters

The union trying to organize Boeing Co’s South Carolina plant withdrew its petition for an April 22 election, citing “a toxic environment and gross violations of workers’ lawful organizing rights.”

The decision, which delays the date for an election by at least six months, was made after organizers for the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers conducted home visits with more than 1,700 Boeing workers, the union said in a statement on Friday.

The IAM said it withdrew its petition for the vote after two organizers “were threatened at gunpoint” during home visits that began last week. Other organizers reported “hostile and near-violent confrontations,” it said.

About 125 IAM representatives from around the country were conducting the home visits, the union said, adding that it had filed unfair labor practice charges in relation to the organizing drive.[…]

The National Labor Relations Board determined last month that about 3,000 production and maintenance workers were eligible to vote on whether the IAM should represent them.

Under NLRB rules, the union can repetition for a vote after six months if it withdraws the petition, but must wait 12 months if it holds an election and loses.

Boeing had waged a vigorous campaign against the union, supported by numerous local political leaders. The union had earlier signaled that it might postpone the vote.

An unfair labor practice filing provided to Reuters by the IAM accused Boeing of “deliberately encouraging and promoting harassment, assaults and threats of violence against union supporters” over the last six months. It sought an injunction from the NLRB to stop Boeing.

Armada Of Iranian Ships Sailing Towards Yemen

Warship-Iran

We are building toward something very bad.

Via The Hill:

U.S. military officials are concerned that Iran’s support for Houthi rebels in Yemen could spark a confrontation with Saudi Arabia and plunge the region into sectarian war.

Iran is sending an armada of seven to nine ships — some with weapons — toward Yemen in a potential attempt to resupply the Shia Houthi rebels, according to two U.S. defense officials.
Officials fear the move could lead to a showdown with the U.S. or other members of a Saudi-led coalition, which is enforcing a naval blockade of Yemen and is conducting its fourth week of airstrikes against the Houthis.

Iran sent a destroyer and another vessel to waters near Yemen last week but said it was part of a routine counter-piracy mission.

What’s unusual about the new deployment, which set out this week, is that the Iranians are not trying to conceal it, officials said. Instead, they appear to be trying to “communicate it” to the U.S. and its allies in the Gulf.

Brian Williams Protégé Richard Engel Revises Story Of ‘One of His Captors Lying Dead…

He can get a job with Rolling Stone, it also gathers no facts.

Via IJR

NBC News has altered its original account of the kidnapping of chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel and two others by forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in 2012. Additionally, Engel now admits that, contrary to his prior claim, he had no proof of “one of his captors lying dead” when the news crew was rescued.

As reported by The New York Times, NBC changed its story on Wednesday:

NBC News on Wednesday revised its account of the 2012 kidnapping of its chief foreign correspondent, Richard Engel, saying it was likely that Mr. Engel and his reporting team had been abducted by a Sunni militant group, not forces affiliated with the government of President Bashar al-Assad of Syria.

Interviews by The Times with several dozen people – including many of those involved in the search for NBC’s team, rebel fighters and activists in Syria and current and former NBC News employees – suggested that Mr. Engel’s team was almost certainly taken by a Sunni criminal element affiliated with the Free Syrian Army, the loose alliance of rebels opposed to Mr. Assad.

Brian Stelter, senior media correspondent for CNN and host of “Reliable Sources,” tweeted his concerns about The New York Times’ story and NBC’s original account.[…]

Saying he did not have a “definitive account of what happened that night,” Engel responded on Wednesday:

“Producer Aziz Akyavas [one of the two other abductees] climbed out of the van through the driver-side door. He says he saw and stepped over a body that lay by the front wheel. I climbed out of the passenger side door.

Under the circumstances, and especially since Aziz said that he had seen and stepped over a body, I didn’t doubt it and later reported it as fact.”

This story is significant in the respect that ISIS, Al-Qaeda and other radical Islamic groups are Sunni, whereas Assad is a member of the Alawites, a sect that identifies as Shiite.

The George Soros Secret Donor Retreat…

Shredding

The meeting was more secure than the White House and the Mexican border.

Via WFB

Wealthy liberals from across the country discussed strategy and finances this Sunday during the Democracy Alliance’s biennial donor confab, where the number of supported groups grew by more than a dozen and funding targets grew by tens of millions of dollars above previous years.

The contrasts are stark at this week’s meeting of the nation’s foremost liberal donor club. Flashy sports cars ferry climate crusaders to a luxury hotel, a private security company shields prying eyes from speeches on political accountability, and billionaire Democratic donors denounce money in politics.

The Alliance is a hub of liberal and Democratic fundraising. It steers tens of millions of dollars each year to leading political and policy groups strategically vetted and endorsed by its staff of progressive operatives.[…]

Security was tight at San Francisco’s Four Seasons hotel, as the group hired its own security to prevent unauthorized individuals from accessing the hotel’s conference area.

It set up disposal bins for “confidential” conference materials, where attendees could dispose of sensitive paperwork for “secure shredding.” The group brought along its own paper shredders.

Attendees dined on goat cheese and garlic polenta, sourdough French toast, Kobe beef, and chorizo-stuffed dates. They sipped fine Napa Valley wine. The minimum food and beverage charge for the event was $130,000 according to hotel documents.

Progressives’ main electoral problem, attendees were told, was an insufficiently populist message.

“Do you wonder why Elizabeth Warren memes dominate your Facebook feed? Come join us for a discussion of bold and winning strategies to alter the existing economic power structure,” one panel description asked of its considerably powerful audience.

Most conference-goers were wary of speaking with the press. One attendee who asked not to be identified said he had been instructed to inform Alliance staff of journalists asking questions about the week’s proceedings.[…]

The group acknowledges that their pledge of donor anonymity to groups that demand more political transparency is “ironic.” It has pledged to increase transparency in its operations, but has also assured DA “partners”—as its donors are known—that they will remain anonymous if they choose.

Less Than A Week In, Marco Rubio Has $40 Million Committed For His Presidential Run

Gives him a powerful start.

(Reuters) – Less than a week after announcing his 2016 campaign for president, Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida doesn’t need to worry about money.

It’s as good as in the bank.

“Marco Rubio will have the resources necessary to run a first-class campaign, that’s already been determined,” said billionaire Florida auto dealer Norman Braman, a former Jeb Bush supporter who is now one of Rubio’s highest-silhouette donors.

Annandale Capital founder George Seay, who is hosting a Rubio fundraiser with the moneyed Dallas elite at his 7,000-square-foot, seven-bath home on Tuesday, said: “Marco has had zero trouble raising money.”

At least seven other Rubio mega donors say their candidate has already received monetary commitments in excess of the $40 million he will likely need to battle through a presidential primary season that will feature a crowd of seasoned Republican candidates with strong financial backing.
