ISIS Put Heads Of Decapitated Yazidis In Cooking Pots…

Subhuman monsters.

Via Daily Mail:

Two Yazidi teenagers who escaped the clutches of Isis have revealed the full horror of their capture and captivity.

They have described being tortured and forced to watch videos of men from their community being beheaded. [...]

Her horrifying ordeal began in the Sinjar village of Tal Azir on August 3 when Isis fighters advanced towards them.

Along with her mother, her brother and his pregnant wife, they fled towards the mountains, but Isis caught up with them at a remote farmhouse.

The women were separated from the men – who were simply mown down by machine gun fire in one of the rooms.

Sara was bundled onto a pick-up truck and taken to Mosul, where she was held with hundreds of others prior to being sold off.

She added: ‘In some [videos] they put the heads into cooking pots. Sometimes they would stand on them. There were so many heads. And they would ask us, ‘Do you know this one?’ and laugh.’

NY Times: Hey, Why Don’t We Reach Out To The “Moderates” In Somalia’s Al-Qaeda Branch?…

Al-Shabaab

Seriously?

Via NY Times:

… “A lot of people advised the international community to reach out to the moderates within the Shabab and arrive at an accommodation with them to isolate the extremists,” says Rashid Abdi, a specialist on the Horn of Africa. “Critics in the West said that would be a policy of appeasement, but the outcome of the failure to engage was the rise in the power of the hard-line, much more radicalized faction of Al Shabab.”

The death of Mr. Godane offers an opportunity. There are scant prospects of talks with Al Shabab’s core leadership, which is firmly aligned with Al Qaeda and must continue to be dealt with militarily. But these jihadists should be viewed separately from the thousands of young men who joined the movement mainly to earn a living. Reaching out to them and to more moderate mid-ranking members is essential.

Obama Cancels Trip To Mecca After Islamic Clerics Forbid Selfies During Hajj…

Heartache.

Via Daily Mail:

They have been taken by Hollywood’s biggest stars and even caused a stir during Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.

Now selfie fever is taking one of the most important events in the Islamic calendar by storm – much to the anger of hardline Muslims.

The annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, which begins today, has seen a rise in the number of pictures being taken on camera phones during the rite of passage in Saudi Arabia as followers share their experiences with family and friends back home.

But some scholars have taken issue with the practice, which they see as a ‘touristy’ distraction from the prayers and rituals that form one of the five pillars of Islam.

It came as around two million Muslims from all corners of the globe arrived in Mecca today for the start of the pilgrimage at the city’s Grand Mosque.

Jeddah-based scholar Sheikh Assim Al-Hakeem told Arab News: ‘Photography without a legitimate reason is an issue of dispute among scholars.

‘However, despite this difference of opinion, there shouldn’t be any dispute when it comes to the real meaning of Haj and the essence behind it.

‘It is based on sincerity and following the sunnah. The Prophet (peace be upon him) when he went for Hajj, he said: “O Allah, I ask of you a pilgrimage that contains no boasting or showing of”. Taking such selfies and videos defy the wish of our Prophet.’

State Department Buys More Reset Buttons…

Via Weekly Standard:

In what might possibly be an attempt to relive the success of Hillary Clinton’s “Russian reset,” the State Department recently awarded a $22,116 contract for “Red Switch Equipment.” Which sounds a lot like the device Clinton famously presented to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in 2009 to “reset” relations with Russia.

Hapless Iraqi Air Force Accidentally Drops Food And Ammunition Meant For Besieged Iraqi Troops On ISIS Fighters…

Calling the Iraqis incompetent is being kind.

WASHINGTON — Iraqi pilots mistakenly delivered food, water and ammunition to Islamic State militants on a recent mission that was meant to supply their own service members with the supplies, NBC News reported.

“Some pilots, instead of dropping these supplies over the area of the Iraqi army, threw it over the area that is controlled by ISIS fighters,” Hakim Al-Zamili, a member of the Iraqi parliament and a senior security official, told NBC. “Those soldiers were in deadly need of these supplies, but because of the wrong plans of the commanders in the Iraqi army and lack of experience of the pilots, we in a way or another helped ISIS fighters to kill our soldiers.”

A brigadier-general in Iraq’s Defense Ministry also confirmed the news to NBC, attributing it to pilots who were “young and new.” The incident reportedly occurred on Sept. 19.

Ebola Patient In Dallas Had Contact With School Kids?

ebola-us-home-antibiotics1.si

Via Russia Today:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has confirmed that the first US diagnosed Ebola patient, who is now in serious but stable condition in Dallas, had contact with children before he showed symptoms of the virus.

At a Wednesday news conference, Texas officials and doctors said they do not believe the children have contracted the virus, but all involved will be monitored for any signs of infection.

The patient, a male according to reports, was admitted on Sunday to an isolation unit at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital after seeking medical care there just two days prior. A spokeswoman for the hospital said Wednesday that the patient is now in serious condition, Reuters reported.

Edward Goodman, an infectious disease specialist at Texas Health Presbyterian hospital, said the patient’s symptoms were not clear at the time he initially sought care, National Public Radio reported.

“He was evaluated for his illness, which was very nondescript. He had some laboratory tests, which were not very impressive, and he was dismissed with some antibiotics,” Goodman said.

Feminists Outraged Over “Sexist” Jeopardy Category “What Women Want”…

It’s almost like feminazis are perpetually miserable.

Via Salon:

What is sexist and relies on tired stereotypes? That would be Monday night’s “Jeopardy!” category “What Women Want.”

The category name itself reduces half the population into a very ridiculous “Jeopardy!” category, full of trite stereotypes. Yet, somehow this category slipped through the censors, and it was allowed out of the 1950s and into 2014.

“A pair of jeans that fit well, like the 525s from this brand,” was one of the clues. It came came in toe with the answer, “What is Levi’s?” Other clues would lead viewers to believe that all women want is to sip tea, attend Pilates classes and to have our husbands help us with the vacuuming. Yep, this happened.

California Dem Gov. Signs Bill Allowing Authorities To Confiscate Guns If Family Members Report Danger…

If libs get their way one day all guns will be confiscated.

Via Bloomberg News:

California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill creating a new type of restraining order aimed at curbing gun violence in the most populous U.S. state, part of a package of firearms measures approved by the 76-year-old Democrat.

Under the new law, families in California concerned that the mental health of a loved one pose a danger can now seek a restraining order that would allow police to search for and seize any firearms the person may have. The bill was introduced after a mentally unstable man shot and killed six people and wounded another 13 near the University of California’s Santa Barbara campus in May.

Brown vetoed a bill that would have required anyone who makes or owns a homemade gun to obtain a serial number and engrave it on the weapon, including plastic weapons made from 3-D printers. Gun owners opposed the measure, saying it would deface antique weapons.

Another measure Brown signed requires that BB and pellet guns be painted bright fluorescent colors. Proponents say it will help prevent accidental shootings such as the killing of a 13-year-old boy in Sonoma County last year by a police officer who said he mistook toy for a real weapon.

Arizona High School Won’t Allow Lesbian Girls To Run For Homecoming “Queen And Queen”… Standard Outrage Ensues…

We need to tell this school that “celebrating diversity” is now mandatory.

Via AZ Central:

Students at Willow Canyon High School in Surprise are banding together behind a lesbian couple who has been denied the opportunity to be nominated as homecoming queen and queen due to a school practice where homecoming royalty must be made up of a male and female pair.

Supporters of the couple say any ballots nominating the couple for homecoming royalty were discounted in a recent poll of students.

“We’re tired of the social normality that the king and queen have to be male and female,” said junior Kody Jiles, who added that it was unfair for the school to void student ballots.

Senior Samantha Breedveld said she supports the couple and is discouraged by her school’s opposition to having a same-sex king and queen.

“You’re our school, you’re meant to support your students, not shut them down saying you’re only supposed to do this,” Breedveld said. “It’s just wrong.” Breedveld said Monday just hours before homecoming week kicked off with a powder puff game later that night.

The Dysart Unified School District responded with a statement, saying the high school’s homecoming traditions have been in place for years and that they work with students on the planning for these events.

“The Willow Canyon High School students do not elect a couple as Homecoming Queen and King, rather individual students self -nominate or are nominated to run for Homecoming Queen or for Homecoming King,” the statement said. “Students can nominate themselves or another student. One person is voted in by fellow students to represent female students at Homecoming and one male student is voted in by the students to represent the boys. Who that female and male student is, is up to the student vote.”

The same-sex couple whose ballots were deemed invalid by administrators were not available for comment.

Amazon Prime Warns Users Classic Tom And Jerry Cartoons Are Racist…

I spent a good chunk of my early years watching Tom And Jerry cartoons and oddly enough, I’m not racist against black maids.

Via Daily Mail:

Fans of classic Tom and Jerry cartoons have been warned that episodes of the iconic show may depict scenes of ‘ethnic and racial prejudice’.

Subscribers to Amazon Prime Instant Video are now met with a caution before viewing certain episodes of the long-running cartoon.

It follows concerns that the representation of a black maid on early episodes of the cartoon show – which made its first episodes in the 1940s – was an example of the era’s prejudices.

Tom and Jerry: The Complete Second Volume is accompanied by the caution: ‘Tom and Jerry shorts may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society. Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today.’

One fan took to Twitter to say: ‘watched Tom and Jerry since the 60s this is the 1st time I’ve ever heard the R word in relation to it. PC madness!’

Another fan wrote: ‘I loved Tom and Jerry as a kid and it never made me think poorly of ethnic minorities or want to smoke cigars.’

Second Worst President In History: I Would Have Beaten Reagan If I Was More “Manly” And “Wiped Iran Off The Map”…

According to Dhimmi Jimmy Americans are so blood-thirsty he would have cruised to re-election if he destroyed Iran.

Via Washington Examiner:

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran.

Interviewed by the show “CNBC Meets,” Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

“I could’ve been re-elected if I’d taken military action against Iran, shown that I was strong and resolute and, um, manly and so forth,” said the former president, who has established himself as a world human rights leader.

“I could have wiped Iran off the map with the weapons that we had, but in the process a lot of innocent people would have been killed, probably including the hostages and so I stood up against all that all that advice, and then eventually my prayers were answered and every hostage came home safe and free. And so I think I made the right decision in retrospect, but it was not easy at the time,” he said, according to a transcript provided to Secrets.

Vermont Dem Governor: “We Are Blessed” To Have Planned Parenthood In Our State…

Planned Parenthood

Eerily reminiscent of Obama’s “God bless” Planned Parenthood remark.

Via Daily Caller:

Vermont’s governor, Democrat Pete Shumlin, was proud to receive Planned Parenthood’s endorsement last week and praised them for their “extraordinary work”– apparently forgetting the willingness of PP clinics in his own state to cover up rape and child abuse.

“Vermont is unusual,” he said. “We should be blessed to live here with a Planned Parenthood that does such extraordinary work and a legislature that will stand behind you.”

Shumlin may have forgotten about the 2002 investigation exposing Planned Parenthood’s willingness to cover for child molesters. Pro-life group Life Dynamics called PP clinics throughout the country, including 12 in Vermont, posing as 13- and 14-year-old girls who’d been impregnated by 22-year-old men asking for abortions.

The age of consent in Vermont is 16, with exceptions for married couples, or if both partners are between and ages of 15 and 19. This means that in every case, the group was informing Planned Parenthood workers of rape.

UC Berkeley Law Professor: Conservatives Rhetoric On ISIS “Dog Whistle” Racism…

Ian Haney López

Tingles nods in approval.

By UC Berkeley law professor Ian Haney López (Raw Story):

… Strikingly, though, many Republicans have been depicting ISIS not primarily as a foreign concern, but as a domestic threat that may portend the invasion, and even the potential collapse, of our country. Especially in the repeated linkage of ISIS to security on the Mexican border, conservative warnings on ISIS seem to constitute a new form of dog whistle politics, the dark art of using coded terms to stir racial anxiety among voters.

First, the claims:

Representative Trent Franks, a Republican from Arizona, warned earlier this month: “It is true, that we know that ISIS is present in Ciudad Juarez or they were within the last few weeks.” He continued: “So there’s no question that they have designs on trying to come into Arizona… If unaccompanied minors can cross the border then certainly trained terrorists probably can to. It is something that is real.”

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas in a CNN opinion piece published on September 10, explained how the nation must prepare to confront ISIS: “First and foremost, Washington should resolve to make border security a top priority finally, rather than an afterthought . . . in light of concerns about potential ISIS activities on our southern border.” First and foremost, we should combat ISIS by focusing on our southern border? Yes, Cruz explained, for “[a]s long as our border isn’t secure, the government is making it far too easy for terrorists to infiltrate our nation.” [...]

It’s easy to shrug off as farcical the warnings of Cruz, Brown and other GOP figures about an ISIS invasion from the south — and then to look askance at those voters who credit such evident absurdities. But this misses the point. ISIS on the southern border is a dog whistle. Decoded, it’s a warning not of any actual military threat, but of accelerating demographic change. This is the real panic that the GOP seeks to harness in the voting booth.

Tom Morello Whines He Was Denied Special Treatment At Restaurant, Asked To Leave

Spoiled baby…

Via Blabbermouth:

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello has slammed The 5 Point Cafe in Seattle for allegedly being “antiworker” and having a “super-rude staff” after reportedly being denied entry to the restaurant-bar over the weekend.

Following his performance Friday night (September 26) at the El Corazon as part of a benefit concert for 15 Now, the grassroots organization that successfully fought for a $15 minimum wage in Seattle, Morello and his entourage allegedly tried to get “a special room” at The 5 Point Cafe even though the place was already “at capacity” and there was “a line” of people waiting to get in.

The restaurant’s doorman apparently told Morello and his crew that he could not accommodate them, after which the guitarist took to his Twitter to blast the eatery, writing: “Five Point restaurant in Seattle is the WORST. Super rude & anti-worker. Shittiest doorman in the Northwest. Prick. Spread the word.”

David Meinert, the owner of The 5 Point Cafe, has since posted the following response on the restarant’s Facebook page:

“For the record, Tom Morello, The 5 Point is totally pro worker. We try to pay more than any other small restaurant, and on top of the higher pay, we offer health insurance, paid sick days, paid time off, retirement and profit share.

“Sorry if you had an issue with our staff, but typically our staff is awesome, and when they are not, it’s usually a reflection of the customer. Act like a prick = get treated like a prick.
