Report: Obama Pulling Military Personnel Off ISIS Mission To Combat Ebola, Pentagon’s “Number One Priority”…

What the …?

Via Daily Mail:

The Fox News Channel reported on Sunday that the U.S. military’s emphasis on Ebola prevention, driven by President Barack Obama, has stretched thin most if not all of its other missions.

A senior military official told Fox that General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a recent meeting that ‘the Department of Defense’s number one priority is combating Ebola.’

The network’s source commented that ‘we don’t need to be taking planners away from the CT [counter-terrorism] mission, and that is what is going on.’

Defense spending is down 21 per cent since 2010, the first fiscal year for which the Obama administration presided over the federal budget.

But the president is insisting that the military carry much of the burden in Africa.

Biden Uses Anti-Semitic Slur To Desribe Bankers…

Joe Biden

Joe being Joe.

Via Yahoo News:

Vice President Joe Biden drew fire from a prominent Jewish group on Tuesday after he described unscrupulous bankers who prey on servicemen and servicewomen deployed overseas as “Shylocks” — a term frequently condemned as an anti-Semitic caricature.

“Shylock represents the medieval stereotype about Jews and remains an offensive characterization to this day. The Vice President should have been more careful,” Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham Foxman said.

Shylock, the villain in Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice,” is a Jewish moneylender who mercilessly demands a “pound of flesh” from the merchant who defaults on a loan. Whether the 16th-century play is anti-Semitic or reflects the anti-Semitism of the time is a subject of frequent, bitter debate, but the term Shylock is offensive enough that Florida stripped it from state law back in 2009. (Not everyone has gotten that memo).

“When someone as friendly to the Jewish community and open and tolerant an individual as is Vice President Joe Biden, uses the term ‘Shylocked’ to describe unscrupulous moneylenders dealing with service men and women, we see once again how deeply embedded this stereotype about Jews is in society,” Foxman said.

Evidence Disputed In Utah Walking While Black Shooting

Still trying to get attention. This is an attempt to discredit Mia Love during her run for Congress. Update to this story.

Via Salt Lake Tribune

While national attention is now focusing on whether two Saratoga Springs police officers shot and killed a young black man because of his race, the various sides sparred Monday over which version of what happened is supported by emerging evidence.

Randall Edwards, attorney for the family of Darrien Hunt, said more witnesses came forward to support the family’s version that the 22-year-old was trying to flee police Wednesday when he was shot in the back. He said no witnesses — nor independent autopsy findings — support police versions that he was lunging at officers with a sword.

Meanwhile, Tim Taylor, chief deputy Utah County attorney, disputed Hunt family assertions that the sword was a decorator piece that is more of a toy and not a weapon. He said the 2- to 3-foot blade was steel and had a point and “was not a toy.”

Also, Taylor said investigators have obtained video surveillance tapes from businesses near where the shooting occurred but have not yet reviewed them. He also said investigators have not yet interviewed at length the two officers involved in the shooting but expect to do that later this week.[...]

The attention comes amid ongoing protests in Ferguson, Mo., over police shooting Michael Brown, a young, unarmed black man there. Also, ironically, it comes as former Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love is favored in a race to become the first black Republican woman elected to Congress.

Love said Monday that she did not know Hunt or his family, and did not want to comment on his death or claims that race played a part in the shooting.

“I don’t want to be mentioned in anything,” said Love. “I think it should just go through the process it is supposed to go through.”

Dick Durbin: Amnesty Bill Will Help Stop Spread Of Ebola…

Durbin

Don’t laugh, he’s serious!

Via Breitbart:

On Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that a comprehensive amnesty bill would have helped America contain the Ebola epidemic in Africa. […]

“We included in the immigration reform bill, which passed the United States Senate, a provision which provided, in one respect, if you are medically trained in Africa and promise to serve in Africa for a period of time before going anywhere else, we would honor that and respect that and not allow people to be recruited into the United States if they still had an obligation to their country,” Durbin said, according to the Washington Times. “And secondly, that doctors in the United States would be able to serve in these crisis situations overseas without jeopardizing their immigration status.”

PA Trooper Shooter Suspect Has MySpace Reference To Che Guevara, 13th Guards (Soviet Red Army Rifle Division)

eric-frein

As we reported earlier, PA authorities have named Eric Matthew Frein as the suspect in the ambush slaying of one trooper and the wounding of another. Frein is currently on the loose and according to the police, is considered to be armed and dangerous. Police note that he made prior statements against law enforcement, but police have not noted the specifics on those statements as of yet.

Some stories have identified him as a “survivalist”, which some immediately are translating to “right wing nut”.

As with most things, best not to jump to conclusions till all the evidence is in.

In this case, it is clear from Frein’s MySpace account that he was an active participant in an Airsoft group, practicing shooting. There are a lot of connections to other Airsoft players.

There is also a connection to Che Guevara and 13th Guards. 13th Guards was a Soviet Red Army rifle division, also referenced on Call of Duty.

Che:
300x300

13th Guards:
300x300 (1)

Does that mean he is definitely a Leftist? No. But being a “survivalist”, if in fact he was one, doesn’t by itself qualify him as “right-wing” either.

Obama Declines To Attend Memorial Dedication For Boots On The Ground Disabled Veterans

A Veteran is someone, who at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America”, for an amount of “up to and including my life”.

That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

via WFB

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event.

The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C.

However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who works on veteran’s issues who is familiar with the situation. This would be among the first national memorials in recent history not to be formally accepted in person by a sitting U.S. president.

Organizers of the event were caught off guard when informed by the White House of the president’s decision this week and are hoping to receive an explanation from the White House as to why Obama will not be attending the ceremony, according to the source, who is close to the memorial and was informed of the decision this week.

NYC Police Commisioner: ISIS Is Looking For ‘Lonewolf Terrorists’ To Target Times Square

455281126

Via NYDN:

The terror group ISIS may have its sights set on Time Square.

The militants responsible for beheading two American journalists and a British aid worker put out a call for “lone wolf” attacks on the Crossroads of the World on one of its online chat rooms.

“Times Square is considered one of the most important and famous tourist attractions in the city,” the group said in an online message board.

The call to recruit “individual wolves in America” came with instructions on how to make rudimentary nail and pipe bombs that can be connected to batteries or timers.

The directions were a basic rehash of the steps outlined in Al Qaeda’s Inspire magazine, which also called on homegrown terrorists to destroy Times Square in its May edition.

NYPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said that ISIS — and its reach to the U.S. through social media — is a paramount concern.

Obama Uses Anniversary Of Washington Navy Yard Shooting To Call For More Gun Control…

Typical Obama hack move.

Via WhiteHouse.gov:

One year ago, our dedicated military and civilian personnel at the Washington Navy Yard were targeted in an unspeakable act of violence that took the lives of 12 American patriots. As we remember men and women taken from us so senselessly, we keep close their family and friends, stand with the survivors who continue to heal and pay tribute to the first responders who acted with skill and bravery. At the same time, we continue to improve security at our country’s bases and installations to protect our military and civilian personnel who help keep us safe. One year ago, 12 Americans went to work to protect and strengthen the country they loved. Today, we must do the same – rejecting atrocities like these as the new normal and renewing our call for common-sense reforms that respect our traditions while reducing the gun violence that shatters too many American families every day.

2 Afghan Policemen Working With DEA Vanish During Georgetown Visit

Via WJLA

Two Afghan nationals, who were in the District to work with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, vanished during a visit to Georgetown over the weekend, officials confirmed Monday to ABC7 News.

On Saturday afternoon, a bus carrying 31 police officers from Afghanistan drove from the DEA’s Quantico, Va. facilities to Georgetown. DEA spokesman Rusty Pain said the group members—undergoing intense training—were driven to Georgetown to enjoy themselves. When it came time to get back on the bus, 22-year-old Mohammad Yasin Ataye and 24-year-old Mohd Naweed Samimi were missing.

Pain insists each member of the group has been vetted and polygraphed. However, given the war in Afghanistan and threats, D.C. tourists and locals alike expressed concern over the pair’s disappearance.[...]

The DEA says it collected everyone’s passports and visas when they arrived, as a precaution. So, presuming Ataye and Samimi fled intentionally, they will have some difficulties getting around. Some observers speculated the pair just doesn’t want to go back home.

“Typically, if I was [in Afghanistan], I’d probably want to be anywhere but there,” said Hunter Payne, of Woodbridge, Va.

“The minds of the people who live there, because it can be pretty violent over there,” said D.C. resident Shiva Vaid.

Whatever the reason these Afghan cops disappeared, Pain says they don’t pose any danger.

The DEA has not yet released photos of Ataye and Samimi.

Arkansas School Forces Christian Student To Remove “Virginity Rocks” T-Shirt…

Apparently the school found this offensive.

FAYETTEVILLE, AR – A Fayetteville junior high made a teenager girl change T-shirts at school because they said it contained sexual content. She said it expressed her Christian beliefs.

Chloe Rubiano is an 8th grader at Ramey Junior High in Fayetteville, Arkansas. She wore a shirt to school that says ‘Virginity Rocks’. She got the shirt at a Christian festival last year. She said, she didn’t think anyone would really make a big deal out of it. She wore it at her old school but at Ramay Junior High she was told it would disrupt the classroom..

When she was called to the office Chloe said the administration was worried her shirt would start sexual conversations in class. She said her vice principal told her, ‘I love the shirt, and I agree with it. But, I just don`t think it is acceptable for school. It opens up too many doors for conversations.’

Chloe had to change into a school gym shirt for the remainder of the day and she says she will still wear the ‘Virginity Rocks’ T-shirt in public but she has decided to not wear it at school again.

Field Organizer For WV Dem Party Poses In Keffiyeh With Imitation AK47, Posts Pro-Terrorist, Anti-Israel Rants On Social Media…Update: Oopsie, He Deletes His Facebook Account…Update: Facebook Back, Listing Him Now As “Former” Field Organizer

image

In addition to being a Field Organizer for the West Virginia Democratic Party, Collin Peterson is also a staffer for Rep. Nick Rahall, D-West Virginia. No problem with him holding a rifle or what looks like an AK47 imitation airsoft gun. Lot of issue with him appearing to “play terrorist” and post other pro-terrorist imagery:

Perhaps Peterson’s opinion was in part formed by the Islam class he took at Randolph Macon College. Here’s Collin talking about how excited he was:
“And I’m really excited for Islam. I’ve wanted to study it and thought about just taking Western Religions but decided not to I am so burned out of learning about Judaism and Christianity. So i’m really excited they offered. Couldn’t fit Buddhism in which is disappointing but I studied it in Eastern religions so I got it covered!” He apparently was taking the course as part of a religious studies minor.

Representative Rahall looks like he might have no issue with a staffer holding such views, having himself attacked Israel.

Nick Rahall is the most senior Arab-American member in the House. He is of Lebanese descent. He has spoken out in the past in support of Palestine, “Israel can’t continue to occupy, humiliate and destroy the dreams and spirits of the Palestinian people and continue to call itself a democratic state.” Rahall was the only member of the House to oppose the 1993 resolution for an end to the Arab boycott of Israel. Rahall’s sister has been a lobbyist for Qatar.

Update:

Peterson pulls his Facebook account.

But the field organizer forgets, the Internet is forever…

Update:

The Facebook account is back up, with all references to Palestine or anti-Israel scrubbed, and now describing Peterson as a “former” field organizer for the West Virginia Democratic party.

(Reuters) – The extremist Islamic group has been gaining ground lately taking several towns throughout the states of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa.

Boko Haram militants have kidnapped another 50 women over the weekend in Nigeria’s northeastern state of Adamawa, media reports confirmed on Monday.

According to the Nigerian Daily Post, Boko Haram foot soldiers stormed Gulak town on Saturday and took the women as they were praying at a preaching ground. Married women were amongst the victims this time, according to residents who managed to escape.

Described as a survivalist. Update to this story

Via WNEP

State police announced arrest warrants for a suspect in the fatal shooting of a trooper over the weekend.

Investigators said Eric Matthew Frein, 31, of Canadensis is a suspect in the killing of Corporal Bryon Dickson and the wounding of Trooper Alex Douglass Friday night outside the Blooming Grove state police barracks.[...]

The break in the case came when a man who lives in Blue Heron Estates was out walking his dog and stumbled upon a Jeep submerged in a retention pond about two miles from the barracks.

The army veteran called the state police tip line with their first big break.

“The canopy is very dense, difficult to see down through with an aircraft, and it really takes someone on foot walking through that area,” said Lt. Colonel George Bivens, Deputy Commissioner of Operations, Pennsylvania State Police.

State police found that Jeep, which was registered to Frein’s parents, and searched it late Monday night, shutting down parts of Route 6 and 402.

Inside, the say they found shell casings that matched the .308 caliber rifle used to gun down the troopers, Frein’s driver’s license, camouflage face paint, and a black hoodie.

Police then searched Frein’s home in Canadensis. Troopers found a book titled “Sniper Training and Employment” and more shell casings.

Frein is still believed to be armed with a .308 caliber rifle and very dangerous.

ISIS Creates Video Game For Aspiring Jihadists, Characters Scream “Allahu Akbar” And Behead Opponents…

Jihadi fanboys rejoice!

Among other things, the purpose of the game is to “raise the morale of the mujahedin and to train children and youth how to battle the West and to strike terror into the hearts of those who oppose the Islamic State”—a reference to the Koran (e.g., 3:151). [...]

The characters in the game highlight aspects central to the Islamic State, such as jihad and “the willingness to sacrifice,” presumably a reference to “martyrdom” tactics.

During moments of victory, the characters shout out Islamic slogans such as “Allahu Akbar!” and behead and slaughter their victims—true to the Islamic State’s modus operandi.

Iraqi Official Warns Vatican ISIS Wants To Assassinate Pope Francis During Upcoming Trips To Muslim Countries…

Pope-Francis_3028690b

Via Telegraph:

Pope Francis is at risk of an assassination attempt by the Islamic extremists of Isil, the Vatican has been warned, ahead of his first visit to a Muslim-majority country this weekend.

As the 77-year-old pontiff prepares to travel to Albania on Sunday for a one-day visit, Iraq’s ambassador to the Holy See said there were credible threats against the pontiff’s life.

The leader of the Roman Catholic Church could also be vulnerable when he travels to Turkey in November, the ambassador said.

Jihadists from Isil have in recent weeks boasted of wanting to extend their caliphate to Rome, the heart of Western Christendom, and have talked of planting the jihadist black flag on top of St Peter’s Basilica.

Habeeb Al Sadr said there were also indications of a more specific threat against Pope Francis, who recently spoke out in favour of the US and its allies halting the advance of Isil in Syria and Iraq.
