Buried in comments from the chief of police in NYC is the fact that they call him a “self-radicalized terrorist” What the hell is a self radicalized terrorist?
If you know what a self-radicalized terrorist is, sound off in comments. I’ll send you a pizza roll.

A man who attacked New York City police officers with an ax had converted to Islam in recent years and the assault appears to have been a lone wolf terror attack, police said today.
One officer who was struck in the head with the ax by Zale Thompson on Thursday is in critical but stable condition, Police Commissioner William Bratton said.
A second officer was also injured.
Thompson was shot and killed by two other officers as Thompson charged them with the ax, Bratton said.
The commissioner said that Thompson had converted to Islam two years ago.
“The father indicated to us he believed his son several years ago converted to become a Muslim, a self-proclaimed Muslim,” Bratton said.
Deputy Commissioner John Miller, who is in charge of counterterrorism for the department, said a review of Thompson’s computer showed that he had visited websites affiliated with radical groups, including al Qaeda, ISIS and al Shabaab.
“It appears from the electronic forensic piece of this, this is something he has been thinking about and thinking about with more intensity in recent days,” Miller said.
Self-radicalized or not, Police Commissioner Bratton says he’s ‘comfortable’ calling it a “terrorist attack”. PM Harper spoke out for Canada, will we hear anything from our President on this?

An assailant shot three sheriff’s deputies and a bystander in the Sacramento County area, then carjacked two vehicles Friday morning prompting a manhunt as the assailant fled through residential areas.
Fox 40 reports that a female suspect was apprehended. The second suspect, an unidentified male believed to be the shooter, was able to get away and is believed to be holed up in a house on Belmont Drive in the city of Auburn. Authorities are also searching the campus of nearby Placer High School.
Sacramento County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Lisa Bowman said the deputy was approaching a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot the Arden Way area of Sacramento near a Motel 6 when he was shot before 11 a.m. Friday.
LUMBERTON – A Lumberton man traded gunfire with three men who forced their way into his home, robbed the family, tried to rape his granddaughter and stole his car Monday, Robeson County authorities said.
One of the men, identified as Jamie Faison, 20, was shot and found dead in the stolen Cadillac parked at his home on the 600 block of Singletary Church Road, Sheriff Kenneth Sealey said in a news release.
The two other men turned up at area hospitals with gunshot wounds.
The homeowner, Kenneth Byrd, 67, was shot multiple times, the release said.
Authorities received a call about 10 p.m. that someone had been shot at a home on the 100 block of Yedda Road, east of Lumberton.
Deputies responded and found Byrd, his wife, Judy, 65, and his 19-year-old granddaughter at the home.
The family told them that a man came to the door and said he was having problems with his vehicle and needed water.
Two men wearing black clothing, ski masks and gloves forced their way into the home and demanded money, Sealey said.
All three of the men had guns.
The Byrds were pushed to the back of their home and instructed to open a safe.
When the men tried to rape the couple’s granddaughter, Byrd grabbed a gun and exchanged shots with the assailants, Sealey said.
Already the mainstream media is crafting an excuse that Jaylen Fryberg was a victim of ‘Native American bashing’ and racism in his school.
He has a slew of negative or racist posts with a variety of stereotypes:
All “rednecks” are bad parents
He includes a picture of a hairy woman’s butt with a derogatory comment about Spanish women.
And what would any racist be without also being a homophobe too right?
We need more people who think like this:
“I’m about to put a smack down on my brothers and sisters. Why on earth [do] they think it is okay to look into the eyes of the already generous US taxpayer and say your charity is not good enough for me. I demand special treatment.”
“Why Do You Look Into The Eyes Of Generous US Taxpayers And Say Your Charity Isn’t Good Enough For Me? ”
An organization representing Somali refugees in Minnesota is demanding more availability of halal products on food pantry shelves, asking local officials to reallocate part of their budget to accommodate Islamic dietary restrictions.
Emina Dedic could relate to the community’s struggle. The 25-year-old Muslim woman came to America more than two decades ago after her family escaped a concentration camp during the Bosnian genocide. While she remembers what it was like to struggle during her family’s resettlement in the U.S., the idea that a Muslim community was asking for government accommodation didn’t sit well with her.
“I’m about to put a smack down on my brothers and sisters,” Dedic wrote in her Facebook post on Oct 20. “Why on earth [do] they think it is okay to look into the eyes of the already generous US taxpayer and say your charity is not good enough for me. I demand special treatment.”
A political activist who holds conservative beliefs, Dedic added, “If you truly have trouble getting Halal foods, ask your mosque. Ask the Islamic community.”
Dr. Spencer, who has since come down with Ebola, was also greenlighted thru these same checks. Once again, no quarantine as yet…

A physician who treated dying Ebola patients in Liberia flew in to JFK on Thursday night — and stayed at an airport hotel, a source told The Post.
Colin Bucks, a clinical assistant professor at Stanford University’s medical school, arrived on a Royal Moroccan Air flight and is currently asymptomatic, sources said.
He went to the Hilton Garden Inn in Jamaica, Queens, near the airport. Centers for Disease Control workers “also stay there,” said a source.
On Friday, he was cleared to travel home to Northern California, where he will “be monitored by CDC there,” according to the source.
“He is asymptomatic and he’s being allowed to leave the hotel and fly home,” a source added.
Today’s shooting at a high school in a suburb of Seattle was allegedly committed by Jaylen Fryberg, a Native American student who apparently was distraught over the end of a relationship he had with a girl at the school.
Poring through his Twitter account reveals a deeply disturbed individual. His last Tweet, from last night, “It won’t last…. It’ll never last….” seems to convey a dark mood.

Tamara Lusardi, a transgender who transitioned from male to female, has won his case against the Department of the Army for discrimination and humiliation, based on a report from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC).
In 2010, Lusardi was working for the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center as a civilian employee, and announced that he was now officially beginning his transition from male to female. Lusardi changed his name and began dressing as a woman, at which point management held a meeting to accommodate Tamara in the workforce. Management supported Lusardi and repeatedly stated that they intended to treat him fairly and accommodate in any way possible, yet emphasized that they also wanted to ensure a safe workplace for everyone. [...]
Particularly egregious for Lusardi was the fact that one of his supervisors continued to refer to him as “Sir” in email communications. This made it difficult for Lusardi to sleep at night. Tamara also alleges that over the course of time he was denied work.
“[T]he Agency inappropriately restricted [Tamara's] restroom usage, repeatedly failed to use her proper name and pronouns, and subjected her and her workplace conversations to increased review and scrutiny,” the report noted. The move represents a serious follow through of Obama’s executive order from July, which bans workplace discrimination against LGBT federal government employees or contractors.
As a part of OSC recommendations, the Army will now mandate additional sensitivity training for supervisors and employees regarding LGBT issues.
Pham received a blood transfusion from one of the doctors who recovered, this helped her recovery.
Via NY Post:
Nina Pham, the first nurse diagnosed with Ebola after treating an infected man who later died, was released from a hospital after being found free of the virus.
“I do not know how I can ever thank everyone enough for their prayers and the expressions of concern, hope and love,” an emotional Pham said at a press conference.
“It may be a while before I get my strength back,” she said.
Barack Obama met with Pham shortly after her release from hospital and gave the smiling nurse a big hug in the Oval Office.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama brought Pham in for a meeting to recognize her for doing her job at a Dallas hospital, where she fell ill while caring for an Ebola-stricken patient who eventually died.
You can always count on Piers Morgan to crawl out from under the rock he’s been living under to scream about how awful guns are after a mass-shooting.
This is almost as mind numbingly stupid as “rape adjacent sex”
bonus points if you can suffer through the ‘rape adjacent sex’ story at the top.
Steinem plays the sexist card not once, not twice, but three times in a single email.
The outcome of this election will be determined by one factor:
And that scares the Republicans half to death… but not enough to make them actually change their anti-women policies. They still refuse to pass Equal Pay laws. And they’re still perfectly comfortable denying women their basic human right to make decisions about their own bodies.
Instead they’re relying on tired, sexist tropes to appeal to us. Women will only vote if voting is like dating, getting married, or breaking up. At least that’s what Republicans seem to think.
This election is our chance to show them that their relentless sexism will not stand — in fact, it will cost them their seats in Congress.
That’s why I’m emailing you today. I need you to step up right now and make sure that Republicans who rely on sexism will lose on November 4th.
Are you in?
As is always the case with rich global warming hypocrites, do as I say, not as I do.
Forgive them, Al Gore, for they have sinned.
Just minutes after extolling the virtues of green living to thousands gathered in the Superdome in New Orleans, climate change pals Tom Steyer, a hedge fund billionaire, and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley left the confab in the least environmentally friendly vehicle possible — a Chevrolet Suburban.
Steyer, the man pouring money into the 2014 election, and O’Malley, a possible presidential pick in 2016, spent Wednesday night in the Big Easy discussing politics and climate change at the 2014 Greenbuild conference, with both men stressing the need to continually educate the public about the need for aggressive action on climate change.
O’Malley, when asked by the event’s moderator how he would act on the issue if elected president, suggested he’d wage a public relations offensive to drill into the minds of Americans the importance of green living.
Yet, as the two men left the Superdome, they did so in a black Suburban, registered in Louisiana but sporting a sign on the dash identifying it as under control of the Maryland State Police.
The pair, or the security detail handling travel, may not have been too comfortable being seen jumping in the gas-guzzler. Originally, the driver parked the truck near one of the dome’s exit doors, waiting to whisk away the two politicos. Seeing cameras rolling, the duo’s security chief asked Superdome staffers to close the main garage door to obscure the view.

A student opened fire at a high school north of Seattle, injuring several people, then killing himself, police said.
At a briefing, police said they are going through the school to make sure the danger has passed. Police said they believe there was only one shooter.
Police learned of the shooting from a 911 call from someone inside the school at about 10:45 a.m., Pacific time, police said.
The Marysville school district released a statement that says, “the Marysville Pilchuck High School is currently in lock down due to an emergency situation. Police and emergency services have responded.
“The Marysville School District lock down procedures will remain in effect at Pilchuck until further notice from law enforcement,” the statement said. “We will continue to forward communication in cooperation with law enforcement.”
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is assisting Marysville police. Neither police agency returned calls for information.

The Washington Redskins aren’t the only ones with a problematic business name.
Illegal Pete’s, a Colorado-based quick-service eatery known for its oversized burritos, came under fire at a public meeting in Fort Collins from about 30 critics who want the restaurant to remove the word “illegal” from its name, the [Fort Collins] Coloradoan reported this week.
“Social context is hugely important,” Fort Collins immigration attorney and meeting moderator Kim Medina said in the Coloradoan report. “We’ll never get to big issues, such as immigration reform, until we can solve these smaller issues of language.”
Colorado State University assistant English professor Antero Garcia said at the meeting, “This is a place that’s going to instill violence in our community.”
Suspected Boko Haram militants kidnapped at least 25 girls in an attack on a remote town in northeastern Nigeria, witnesses said, despite talks on freeing over 200 other female hostages they seized in April.
John Kwaghe, who witnessed the attack and lost three daughters to the abductors, and Dorathy Tizhe, who lost two, said the kidnappers came late in the night, forcing all the women to go with them, then later releasing the older ones.
The attack cast further doubt on government reports that it has secretly reached a temporary ceasefire with the rebels in order to secure the release of more than 200 schoolgirls they are holding hostage.
“We are confused that hours after the so-called ceasefire agreement has been entered between the Federal Government and Boko Haram insurgents, our girls were abducted by the insurgents,” Kwaghe said.
“We urge the government to please help rescue our daughters without further delay, as we are ready to die searching.”
Nearly a week after the government announced a ceasefire deal with Boko Haram, which it said would include the release of the girls kidnapped from the secondary school in Chibok in northeastern Nigeria in April, there is still no sign of them being freed.
Kerry is apparently rubbing it in Israel’s face.

MEDITATION FOR CLIMATE CHANGE – LOVING THE EARTH
This meditation came to me a week ago in meditation. I often let my consciousness and breath follow my spine up and down. Recently I learned a figure 8 breathing visualization from Kate Sutherland which helps to ground oneself.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, eyes closed and your attention on your breath. Sitting or lying down works too, but standing is the easiest way to start.
Inhale slowly and bring your awareness to your heart.
Exhale slowly and imagine your breath is traveling the front of your body and entering to the center of the Earth.
Inhale slowly and imagine you are drawing up energy from the center of the Earth, up the back of your body, and into your heart.
Exhale slowly and imagine that your breath is going from your heart up the front of your body as high as it can go – to the stars, heaven, the sun – whatever works for you.
Inhale slowly and imagine you are drawing energy down from the sky, down the back of your body and into your heart.
Continue breathing the same shape. Next time you exhale, imagine your breath is travelling down to the earth, to the reserves of oil and coal and gas. Imagine a protective sheet of shimmering light around them so they stay in the ground. See all the wells and pumps disappear from the reserves.
Inhale slowly and imagine you are drawing energy up from the Earth, into your heart.
Exhale slowly and imagine your breath is going from your heart up towards the sky, to the atmosphere. Visualize that you can see the carbon dioxide molecules (one carbon, 2 oxygen) and you are touching them gently, loving them and letting them transform into oxygen and carbon.
Inhale back to your heart, bringing the carbon atoms with you.
Exhale and imagine you are bringing your breath and the carbon atoms down down to the center of the Earth. Return the carbon. Smoothly pet tight the mines, the drilling holes.
Inhale up to your heart. Exhale up to the atmosphere. Love away the carbon dioxide.
