Welcome to academia.

Via Daily Mail:

Administrators at a Catholic university in Florida agreed to help an honors student start a campus club that would send money and supplies to the ISIS terror army.

Hidden camera footage released Monday morning shows officials and faculty at Barry University advising a senior – identified only as ‘Laura’ – about the best way to secure funding for a club she called ‘Sympathetic Students in Support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.’

‘I want to start fundraising efforts on campus, and what I want to do is raise funds to send overseas,’ she told Derek Bley, the school’s Coordinator for Leadership Development and Student Organizations.

Bley offered to help her create the organization and agreed with her request to ‘pass out Islamic State flags and educate people’ at an annual student ‘Festival of Nations’ fair.

The school’s mission statement says ‘all members of our community’ must ‘accept social responsibility to foster peace and nonviolence.’

Yet Bley was enthusiastic about Laura’s terror-funding venture. ‘We’re not here to limit people and their clubs, he said. ‘If there a demand or a need, or an interest that students have to do this, we’re here to support that.’

‘If you’ve got … people who are interested, and this is something you want take and run with,’ he added. ‘we’re here to help you get that done.’

Conn Dem Gov. Bans State-Funded Travel To Indiana Over Religious Freedom Law… Seemingly Unaware Conn Passed The Same Law

malloy_P_20121217174258

Malloy probably should have checked to see if Connecticut has its own RFRA law before issuing his travel ban to Indiana.

Via TPM:

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D) on Monday announced he plans to sign an executive order on state-funded travel in response to Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) signing a controversial bill into law that could allow businesses to discriminate against gay people.

Malloy’s announcement is the latest move by a top elected official from another state in protest of Pence signing the law. San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee (D) last week banned state-funded travel to Indiana last week as a statement against the law. It wasn’t immediately clear from Malloy’s tweets if the executive editor was exactly the same as Lee’s move, although it’s expected to be similar.

Pence has been receiving wide criticism for signing the law and both he and top Republican lawmakers said most recently that they planned to add a clarification to try and rebut that criticism. On Sunday, Pence was pressed about the law but he wouldn’t say whether it discriminates against gay people.

Breaking: Vehicle Tries To Ram Gate At Fort Meade At HQs Of NSA, Shots Fired…Update: Two Men Disguised As Women Were In SUV, 1 Killed, Other Injured; Guard Also Injured

Screen Shot 2015-03-30 at 9.50.26 AM

Fox is reporting a vehicle rammed the gate and that shooting was heard.

Via NBC:

Police are on the scene of an incident outside Fort Meade in Anne Arundel County.

From Chopper4, emergency workers could be seen caring for an injured, uniformed man who was loaded into an ambulance.

It’s not clear what connection that person has to the incident, if any. There are two vehicles with damage outside the gate, including a police SUV.

The National Security Agency is investigating the incident.

Fort Meade, a United States Army installation, is home to approximately 11,000 military personnel along with about 29,000 civilian employees, according the military installation’s website.

Screen Shot 2015-03-30 at 9.53.06 AM

Appears from the pictures above to have at least one fatality, there appears to be a body covered with a sheet near the door of the black SUV that rammed the gate. Two injured in addition.

Update:

Dressed as women who just happened to crash the gate and it’s a local incident? Can’t wait to hear the explanation for this!

Via NBC:

Gunfire erupted Monday morning at the gate of the National Security Agency’s facility at Fort Meade in Maryland when two men disguised as women in a stolen car tried to enter, sources said.

A guard intervened and shot at least one of the men in the Ford Escape. A search of the vehicle turned up a gun and some drugs.

The condition of the men in the car was not confirmed. The NSA is a conducting the investigation into the incident, but the FBI was also on the scene.

“The shooting scene is contained and we do not believe it is related to terrorism,” the FBI’s Baltimore office said in a statement. “We are working with the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland to determine if federal charges are warranted.”

It’s not clear why the men were trying to enter the facility, but one senior U.S. official called it a “local criminal matter.”

One bad guy shot, one captured and one guard also injured.

Wow! Joe Biden Tells American Jews They Can Only Rely On Israel To Protect Them, Not The U.S.

alg-biden-israel-jpg

Oddly enough, Biden hasn’t made any similar comments to Muslims in America.

JERUSALEM – An incredible admission by US Vice President Joe Biden has been revealed, in which he told Jewish leaders that should the American Jewish community be in danger, it has only Israel to rely on – and not America.

Journalist Jeffrey Goldberg reveals in the April issue of The Atlantic how at a Rosh Hashana event in Biden’s home last fall, the vice president told Jewish leaders and Jewish officials in US President Barack Obama’s administration how he met former Prime Minister Golda Meir when he was a young Senator.

“I’ll never forget talking to her in her office with her assistant – a guy named (Yitzhak) Rabin – about the Six-Day War,” he recalled. “The end of the meeting, we get up and walk out, the doors are open, and…the press is taking photos. …She looked straight ahead and said, ‘Senator, don’t look so sad…Don’t worry. We Jews have a secret weapon.'”

Biden states he asked Meir what the weapon was, noting “I thought she was going to tell me something about a nuclear program” – an ironic comment given the US’s recent declassification of documents revealing Israel’s nuclear program in a breach of understandings with the Jewish state.

But according to Biden, “she looked straight ahead and she said, ‘We have no place else to go.'” Addressing his guests at
Rosh Hashana, Biden paused for effect and repeated, “we have no place else to go.”

“Folks, there is no place else to go, and you understand that in your bones,” Biden said. “You understand in your bones that no matter how hospitable, no matter how consequential, no matter how engaged, no matter how deeply involved you are in the United States…there’s only one guarantee.”

“There is really only one absolute guarantee, and that’s the state of Israel,” he stated.

Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich: A Few Hundred Westerners Joining ISIS “Not A Big Deal”…

A few hundred? More like a few thousand.

Via Newsbusters:

While on Thursday’s edition of The Nightly Show on Comedy Central, former Labor Secretary Robert Reich expressed concern that the media has been covering the terrorist group ISIS too heavily and in turn has been causing the group’s ranks to swell.  After being asked by host Larry Wilmore to explain why “all these westerners [are] joining ISIS,” Reich dismissed that premise by declaring that “there are not that many trying to join ISIS” considering: “Out of 600 million Europeans and Americans you’ve got, what, 400, 800 trying to join ISIS? This is not a big deal.”

ISIS Stones Iraqi Couple To Death For Having Sex Outside Marriage In Mosul…

CBWVJAxW4AA44OQ

More savagery.

Via Daily Mail:

Gruesome new images have emerged showing Islamic State militants stoning a man a woman to death in Iraq after they were accused of having sex without being married.

Taken in the ISIS-stronghold of Mosul in Nineveh province, the shocking images show a large, bloodthirsty crowd gathered to watch the jihadis murder the defenceless couple.

Young boys clamber onto their father’s shoulders to get a better view of the man and woman being charged with ‘fornication’, before the familiar white-bearded face of ISIS’ elderly Mosul-based executioner-in-chief Abu Ansar al-Ansari orders their stoning to death.

The sickening images begin by showing a large crowd gathered in a rain-drenched square in central Mosul.

With heavily armed militants taking up positions on ledges overlooking the crowd, the young men and boys jostle to ensure they get the best view of the murder

In the background of the image, women wearing black niqabs are seen gathered together.

An Islamic State militant with a yellow scarf covering his face is then seen using a microphone and PA system to read out the charge of ‘fornication’ against the couple, suggesting they have been accused of having sex without being married, not of committing adultery.

Mayor Of Seattle Prohibits City Employees From Traveling To Indiana Over Religious Rights Law…

ap_indiana_protest_150328_16x9_992

Via ABC News:

The mayor of Seattle today prohibited municipal employees from traveling to Indiana on city funds, as the backlash spread against the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray’s decision comes in response to the law signed Thursday by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence that allows businesses to refuse service to gays and lesbians for religious reasons.

Murray said Indiana’s new law “doesn’t reflect the values” of Seattle.

“Seattle has been a leader in the fight to protect civil rights and ensure equality for all people — no matter who you are, or who you love,” Murray said today in a statement.

“This is why I am ordering that none of our taxpayer dollars should go toward supporting this discriminatory law,” Murray’s statement continued.

Boko Haram Kills 25 During Attack On Village, Beheads Victims With CHAINSAWS…

Incomprehensible evil.

(RT) – Militants from extremist group Boko Haram attacked several Nigerian towns, torching houses and fatally shooting those who fled before reportedly beheading some of the bodies with chainsaws. The string of terror attacks comes amid the presidential vote.

At least 25 people were killed and more than 30 injured in the village of Buratai in Borno state, local officials confirmed.

Surviving witnesses described gruesome scenes of murder, saying that not only did the extremists set homes on fire and shoot those trying to escape, but also decapitated the bodies.

Local politician Ibrahim Adamu, who fled the scene, told CNN that Boko Haram “slaughtered their victims like rams and decapitated them,” adding that “they burned a large part of the village and we are afraid some residents were burnt in the homes because most people had gone to bed when the gunmen struck.”

President Obama is an inspiration to so many grassroots organizers across the country.

That’s why I think this is one of the most genuinely awesome things we do — a grassroots contest to meet the President in person at the OFA Organizing Summit next month.

And it’s fitting that it’s all about us as organizers. It bears repeating — this is a movement of millions. But every one of us has a story to tell about how we got inspired to do the work we do. It’s so powerful to hear how we were all moved to be part of it.

Those stories are what drive us — they give us the strength to fight back against the big-money lobbyists and powerful special interests.

That’s what this contest is all about: giving folks the chance to tell their stories.

Add your name to be automatically entered for the chance to meet President Obama — and the flight and hotel for you and a guest are on us.

Not a bad deal.

Liberals are already attacking Ted Cruz’s credentials, suggesting he’s no more qualified to run than Obama, whom conservatives have long mocked for his resume as a “community organizer.” On CNN’s State of the Union, Cruz shot these comparisons down.

“I want to read to you a description,” began host Dana Bash. “A Harvard law graduate, 40-something years old, two young daughters, in the Senate for only two years, who thinks he can be president. I could be describing you; I could be describing Barack Obama.”

“Dana, I think there are really two sharp distinctions between where I am today and where Barack Obama was when he launched his campaign,” said Cruz. “Number one, in his time in the Senate, he had basically been a backbencher, he had not been leading on issues of any significance. In my time in the Senate you can accuse me of being a lot of things, but a backbencher is not one of them.”

“But the big criticism of President Obama, especially as the years went on, he didn’t have any experience in an executive function, he didn’t run any organization, and the same can be said about you,” Bash pressed.

“Well, unlike Barack Obama, I was not a community organizer before I was elected to the Senate,” Cruz replied. “I spent five and a half years as the Solicitor General of Texas, the chief lawyer for the state Texas in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Patriotic Till The End: Colorado Springs Veteran, 87, Dies Building Flagpole…

richard french

Another member of the Greatest Generation reports for his final roll call.

Via Stars and Stripes

Age was no barrier for Richard “Dick” French, who, at 87, set out to build a 20-foot flagpole in the yard of his Colorado Springs home to show off his immense patriotism.

For months, he talked up the project to family members and couldn’t wait for the weather to warm up so he could get started. On Easter, he planned to hold a ceremony for his family and raise a large American flag and flags for each of the military branches for which he served as a photographer in the 1940s.

He got to work Saturday, but the project was left unfinished when he suffered what was called a sudden “cardiac event” and died.

“It was exactly the way he wanted to go,” said his granddaughter, Laurel Barrett, 27. “It was a shock. My mom and I were the ones who found him.”

Barrett said French was a lively man with a great sense of humor. He was the kind of guy who would put a plow on his riding lawnmower so he could clear the driveways for the “old ladies” nearby who were younger than he.

“He had a joke for every occasion,” said his daughter and Laurel’s mother, Jean Barrett, 58.

He was stubborn, too. At 86 years old, he refused to let anyone help him re-tile his garage roof, Laurel Barrett said. He made a makeshift elevator to get supplies up to the roof, and did the project himself.[…]

A few years ago, French started throwing “flag parties,” basically his version of the Fourth of July – but held whenever he felt like it to share his love for his country with the youngest generations of his family.

“He would pass out flags and tell military stories and make everybody pose with the flag and take pictures,” Laurel Barrett said.

Pictures were involved with pretty much everything he did throughout his life, she added.

French was born in El Paso, Texas, on Aug. 23, 1927. He spent 1944 to 1947 in the military at Fort Lewis, Wash., where he was a photographer for the Coast Guard, Army and Merchant Marines, Jean Barrett said. He took pictures of presidents and showed one to Cunningham of President Dwight D. Eisenhower visiting what was then Camp Carson.[…]

French grew increasingly patriotic as he aged, his daughter said.

“He didn’t like the way the country was being run now and it really upset him,” she said. “The madder he got, the more patriotic he got, and he kept saying we need to go back to the values we used to have. … He just wanted people to remember it was important to be patriotic.”

French had four daughters: Linda Shields, Janet Cooper, Jean Barrett and the late Mary French. He is survived by eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. His wife, Carolyn, whom he met at the age of 15, died in 2013.

When French’s family holds a celebration of life ceremony later in April, there will be a patriotic theme, and everyone will wear flag lapel pins, Jean Barrett said.

The flagpole project likely won’t be finished because French will be buried with the flags he planned to raise.

But one thing is certain: wherever she is, Laurel Barrett will always fly an American flag in her grandfather’s honor.

Hillary Supporter Makes Not-So-Veiled Threat Against O’Malley If He Dares Challenge Hillary

A former governor on ABC’s “This Week” made a not-so-veiled threat Sunday to former Democratic Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley that he could lose a cabinet position in Hillary Clinton’s administration by running against her.

Former Democratic Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who also serves as a Senior Advisor to Ready for Hillary PAC said, “She is comfortable enough to be able to withstand a primary.”

Granholm added, “And Martin O’Malley, he’s a very nice guy, and I was thinking he might make a nice member of a President Clinton administration, so he better watch it.”

“I think he and anybody else, she would welcome into the mix,” Granholm continued. “That would be healthy. But I also think ultimately, she’ll be the next president.”

Shocker! Obama Didn’t Vote Present, He Voted For Illinois Religious Freedom Reformation Act In 1998…

IL RFRA

Votes in the past don’t matter, that was a long time ago.

Via Washington Times

White House spokesman Josh Earnest took aim Sunday at Indiana’s newly signed religious-freedom law, saying it appears to “legitimize discrimination,” even as critics said that President Obama voted in favor of a similar law as an Illinois state senator.

“When you have a law like this one in Indiana that seems to legitimize discrimination, it’s important for everybody to stand up and speak out,” said Mr. Earnest on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

Just before Mr. Earnest made his comments, however, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence defended the law in an interview on the same show, noting that the federal government and 19 other states previously passed a Religious Freedom Reformation Act, including Illinois.

After President Bill Clinton signed the federal Religious Freedom Reformation Act (RFRA) in 1993, “some 19 states followed that, and after last year’s Hobby Lobby case, Indiana properly brought the same version that then-state Sen. Barack Obama voted for in Illinois,” Mr. Pence said.

Indiana Senate Republicans made the same point in a Thursday press release: “The bipartisan respect for religious freedom has also carried over to the votes for most state-level RFRAs. For example, when President Obama was an Illinois State Senator in 1998, he voted for Illinois’ RFRA.”

Mr. Obama served as an Illinois state senator from 1997 to 2004. The Illinois RFRA took effect in July 1998.

Mr. Earnest dismissed the argument: “If you have to go back two decades to try to justify something that you’re doing today, it may raise some questions about the wisdom of what you’re doing.”
