AP: Speaking of politics, have you spoken to Hillary Clinton whether she’ll run for president?

Streisand: I would love her to run. I think we have advanced with Obama, and I think people are giving him a hard time, which is not fair because this Affordable Care Act is working and it’s going to help a lot of people. But it’s like Greek tragedy, you know, they always try to bring down the gods, bring down the kings, bring down the leaders.

ISIS Launches Major Offensive Against Kurds In Syria, Seize 16 Villages In One Day…

Seems like those pinprick airstrikes from Obama isn’t slowing ISIS down… shocker.

AFP — A monitoring group said Islamic State fighters had seized a string of villages as they closed in on Syria’s third-largest Kurdish town of Ain al-Arab.

“In the past 24 hours, IS fighters have launched a huge offensive and seized at least 16 villages to the east and west of Kobane,” said Syrian Observatory for Human Rights head Rami Abdel Rahman, using the Kurdish name for Ain al-Arab.

“The IS is using heavy weaponry, its artillery and tanks,” he said, adding that thousands of Kurdish fighters defending the town on the Turkish border were being encircled.

The US estimates that IS has 20,000 to 31,000 fighters, including many foreigners, and there are concerns that returning jihadists could carry out attacks in Western countries.

Australia on Thursday detained 15 people in connection with the plot to behead a random person, in the country’s largest ever counter-terrorism raids.

Prosecutors said the plan, coordinated with a senior IS militant with Australian citizenship, would have seen random people abducted to “gruesomely execute” them on camera.

Hillary Clinton At Feminist Conference Says She’s “Embarrassed” By America For Not Signing Radical UN Treaty…

Hillary Rodham Clinton

The feeling is mutual, Pant Suits.

Via Breitbart:

Last Friday, to a packed hall at the modernist Ford Foundation building not far from the UN, former Sec. of State and presumptive presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she was embarrassed that the United States has never ratified the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. “It’s embarrassing. I mean, really, it’s embarrassing,” she said.

Clinton was speaking to a conference called “Women and Girls Rising” that was a look back at rosier days for the feminist agenda during the mid-90s and the great global UN conferences at Cairo on population and Beijing on the rights of women. Long-time Clinton adviser John Podesta also spoke and he, too, complained, “…many think the U.S. can’t ratify anything these days.”

There are a whole host of UN treaties most of the world has ratified that have either never been signed by the president or never given consent by the Senate, including the women’s rights treaty, but also one on children’s rights, and a more recent treaty on persons with disabilities.

UK: Facing A Wave Of Hundreds Of ISIS Fighters Coming Home, Top Government Adviser Warns About Violence From “Right-Wing Extremists”

Does it get any more clueless than this?

Via Daily Mail:

Ministers must not ignore the growing threat of violence from far-right extremists in Britain in the wake of ISIS terrorism and crimes involving UK Muslims, a senior Home Office adviser said today.

The anonymous expert on right-wing extremism warned that the Government is putting an emphasis on the ‘global jihadist agenda’ while possibly ignoring the growth of the far-right at home.

The adviser warned of the importance of preventing a violent attack being carried out by the far-right in Britain in the future.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: ‘I have been working with people from the far-right for about 27 years now.

‘I can see increases in some of these groups and membership in some of these groups based on things that are happening nationally here and internationally.

Report: ISIS Leadership Ordered Terror Attack On Australia…

Update to this story

Australia accounts for the largest per capita number of foreign fighters in ISIS.

(AFP) – A series of anti-terror raids across Sydney and Brisbane were sparked by a senior Islamic State militant ordering “demonstration killings” in Australia, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said today.

“The exhortations, quite direct exhortations, were coming from an Australian who is apparently quite senior in Isil to networks of support back in Australia to conduct demonstration killings here in this country,” he said.

“So this is not just suspicion, this is intent and that’s why the police and security agencies decided to act in the way they have.”

John Kerry: “We Do Have A Strategy To Defeat ISIS” But We Can’t Tell You What It Is…

I get the feeling John isn’t being very honest with us.

Via Washington Examiner:

Secretary of State John Kerry testified in front of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Wednesday afternoon on the United States’ strategy to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. “ISIL must be defeated. Period. End of Story,” Kerry testified in front of the Congress.

Echoing much of what President Obama said earlier in the day at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla., Kerry emphasized the fact that U.S. ground troops will not be sent into combat in Iraq.

Speaking loudly over a group a protestors in the background, Kerry reassured Congress that the plan to destroy the Islamic State has been well thought out.

“We do have a clear strategy to degrade, defeat and ultimately destroy ISIL and it’s not in its infancy.”

The man, who MailOnline have chosen not to identify, speaks calmly as he sits behind a desk in a dark room while wearing an orange T-shirt.

He said: ‘In November 2012, I came to Syria where I was subsequently captured by the Islamic State.

Baltimore Sheriff Candidate: “White People Should Shut The F*ck Up, You’re The Most Violent People On The Planet”…

He seems like a delightful fellow.


A man running for Baltimore County sheriff on an “anti-police brutality platform” raised some eyebrows with his recent comments, saying, “white people should just shut the f*ck up” because they’re “the most violent people on the planet.”

The comments were made while he ranted about the Ray Rice case, arguing that the running back’s wife was the one at fault.

“Women want equality, she got some of it,” Wiggins wrote. “There are only white Jew women on this thread telling me what black women think… When you whites, particularly you Jews, stop killing women in the Middle East with your dual citizenship, then come talk to me about protecting women’s rights.”

On his website, Wiggins also accuses white Baltimore Police of “assassinating” black men.

“The murders of Black men are continuing with ‘no motive,’ ‘no suspects’,” he writes in his “Baltimore Genocide Report.” “PBD are engaging in random assassinations.”

Former Navy SEAL: More Than 90 Percent Of Troops Do Not Support Obama…


Hmm, I wonder why.

Via Daily Caller:

According to former U.S. Navy SEAL Carl Higbie, over 90 percent of troops disapprove of President Barack Obama. Higbie made the comments to “On The Record” host Greta Van Susteren Wednesday.

“Effective today, the president? A photo-op? or something in between?” Susteren asked.

“Photo-op. Complete photo-op. This indicative of a global failure of his foreign policy,” Higbie explained. “He has toted that he is behind the troops before and he stands in front of these guys, gets a photo-op, everything like that, while saying he’s going to send 3,000 guys to combat Ebola, but I’m not going to send any to combat an actual enemy that’s really threatening America.”

“What do you think they think? I mean, I suppose it’s kind of a mixed bag?” Susteren pressed.

“I’d say most of the troops,” Higbie replied. “Probably over 90 percent, do not support the president.”

Iran Sentences Blogger To Death For “Insulting The Prophet” On Facebook…

Sharia in action.

TEHRAN – A blogger found guilty of insulting the Prophet Mohammad in his postings on Facebook has been sentenced to death. An informed source told the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran that the blogger, Soheil Arabi, will be able to appeal the decision until September 20, 2014.

Agents from the Revolutionary Guards Corps’ (IRGC) Sarallah Base arrested Soheil Arabi, 30, and his wife in November 2013. Arabi’s wife was released a few hours later, but he was kept in solitary confinement for two months inside IRGC’s Ward 2-A at Evin Prison, before he was transferred to Evin’s General Ward 350. Branch 76 of the Tehran Criminal Court, under Judge Khorasani, found Arabi guilty of “sabb al-nabi” (insulting the Prophet), on August 30, 2014.

“The way he was arrested was illegal. It is not clear how the agents were able to enter their home at that time in the morning. All the doors were locked and family members were asleep. Agents entered his home and bedroom. He and his wife were arrested and some of their photographs and personal belongings were taken after their home was searched,” said the source.

“Soheil had eight Facebook pages under different names, and he was charged with insulting the Imams and the Prophet because of the contents of those pages. He has accepted his charges, but throughout the trial, he stated that he wrote the material without thinking and in poor psychological condition,” the source told the Campaign.

Israeli-Arab ISIS Member: “We Are A People Who Love Drinking Blood”…


Jihadi vampires?

Via IBT:

An Arab-Israeli member of Isis (now known as the Islamic State) has claimed that the terror group takes pleasure in “drinking blood” of its enemies.

Rabie Shehada, otherwise known as “the Palestinian slayer”, spoke openly in a new video of the Islamic group’s love of death.

“I swear we are a people who love death for the sake of God just as you love to live,” says Shehada.

“I swear we are a people who love drinking blood. We came to slaughter you,” he adds. “We love dying for God as much as you love life.”

According to Dubai-based outlet Al-Arabiya, Shehada, 26, is from the northern Israeli city of Nazareth which holds a majority-Arab population.

Shehada studied mechanical engineering in Nazareth before quitting university and disappearing just three months into his studies.

Report: Dems Fed Up With Wasserman Schultz As DNC Chief…

If you thought she was an awful person before, read this Politico article and you will think even less of her.

Via Politico:

Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in a behind-the-scenes struggle with the White House, congressional Democrats and Washington insiders who have lost confidence in her as both a unifying leader and reliable party spokesperson at a time when they need her most.

Long-simmering doubts about her have reached a peak after two recent public flubs: criticizing the White House’s handling of the border crisis and comparing the tea party to wife beaters. [...]

One example that sources point to as particularly troubling: Wasserman Schultz repeatedly trying to get the DNC to cover the costs of her wardrobe.

In 2012, Wasserman Schultz attempted to get the DNC to pay for her clothing at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, multiple sources say, but was blocked by staff in the committee’s Capitol Hill headquarters and at President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign headquarters in Chicago.

She asked again around Obama’s inauguration in 2013, pushing so hard that Obama senior adviser — and one-time Wasserman Schultz booster — Valerie Jarrett had to call her directly to get her to stop. (Jarrett said she does not recall that conversation.) One more time, according to independent sources with direct knowledge of the conversations, she tried again, asking for the DNC to buy clothing for the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Dinner.?

Wasserman Schultz denies that she ever tried to get the DNC to pick up her clothing tab. “I think that would be a totally inappropriate use of DNC funds,” she said in a statement. “I never asked someone to do that for me, I would hope that no one would seek that on my behalf, and I’m not aware that anyone did.”

Tracie Pough, Wasserman Schultz’s chief of staff at the DNC and her congressional office, was also involved in making inquiries about buying the clothing, according to sources. Pough denies making, directing or being aware of any inquiries.

But sources with knowledge of the discussions say Wasserman Schultz’s efforts couldn’t have been clearer. “She felt firmly that it should happen,” said a then-DNC staffer of the clothing request. “Even after it was explained that it couldn’t, she remained indignant.”

ISIS Using Christian Homes in Mosul As Bomb Factories…

Jihadi work accident time.

(AINA) — A number of Mosul residents have said that ISIS has turned Christians homes into factories for improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and car bombs. In interviews with, residents confirmed that ISIS are now searching for Christians homes containing hiding places and shelters, since they are expecting ground forces backed by the Iraqi government to begin clearing operations in the city.

A resident said ISIS is using a Christian home in the Hadbaa neighborhood for manufacturing IEDs. He sees them on a daily basis as they bring welding machines to the house and install various extensions to cars. Another resident said that many ISIS terrorists are using a house belonging to a Christian who used to work in the Nineveh Province as their headquarters, engaging in welding and blacksmith projects. He sees many cars that come on and go, including pickup trucks full of mortar rounds and explosives with exposed wires.

D.C. Rewrites Gun Laws, Proposes Concealed-Carry Licensing Program


Buy stock in gun free zone signs, signage will be on every corner and building in Dee Cee.


District of Columbia residents will be able to get licenses to carry concealed handguns outside the home, but only after they show a reason they need such a permit and complete an extensive gun-safety training course, officials said Wednesday.

Mayor Vincent Gray and other city officials said they plan to propose legislation that would make the District similar to a half-dozen states, including Maryland, where residents can be denied a concealed-carry permit if they don’t show a reason for seeking one. The Supreme Court declined to hear a challenge to Maryland’s law last year.

In July, a federal judge struck down the District’s ban on carrying handguns outside the home. The judge put his ruling on hold to give the District time to rewrite its gun laws.

In 2008, the Supreme Court struck down the city’s 32-year-old ban on handguns. Since then, the District has required gun owners to register their firearms every three years, complete a safety course and be fingerprinted and photographed, among other requirements.

The D.C. Council will vote next week on the proposed emergency legislation to establish the concealed-carry program. Under the proposal, residents must complete a “more extensive” safety course than what’s required for gun owners in order to receive a concealed-carry permit. Non-residents would also be able to obtain permits if they meet the same standards.

The city’s police chief would have the authority to deny concealed-carry permits to those who don’t meet the standards.

Islamic State Threatens To Cut The Tongue Out Of Anyone Calling Them “Daesh”…

Anyone doubt the sincerity of their threat?

Via JPost:

Propaganda has been one of the core strategies of the Sunni militant group in Syria and Iraq that today calls itself the Islamic State – and its name is very much a part of that.

In July, the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, announced its rebranding. He declared that the territory under his control would be part of a caliphate, or an Islamic state, shortening its name from Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL – the acronym used by the Obama administration and the British Foreign Office to this day. The Levant can refer to all countries bordering on the eastern Mediterranean, from Greece to Egypt.

Different translations for the name of the al-Qaeda splinter group have emerged since the early days of its existence.

Arab governments have long refrained from using Islamic State, instead referring to it by the Arabic acronym for its full original name, Daesh – short for Dawlat al-Islamiyah f’al-Iraq w Belaad al-Sham – Israel and its leaders also use the Arabic acronym.

Several residents in Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city which fell to the extremist group in June, told The Associated Press that the militants threatened to cut the tongue of anyone who publicly used the acronym Daesh, instead of referring to the group by its full name, saying it shows defiance and disrespect. The residents spoke anonymously out of fear for their safety.
