UK: Liberal “Comic” Russell Brand Says British Society Is To Blame For Muslims Flocking To Join ISIS…

In related news, Russell Brand is now a finalist in the competition for title of “world’s biggest douchebag.”

Via Daily Mail:

Self-styled revolutionary Russell Brand believes Britain’s ‘corrupt’ society is to blame for turning Jihadi John into a terrorist executioner.

In an extraordinary ten-minute rant on YouTube, the outspoken millionaire comedian young Muslims in the UK are so disenfranchised they ‘turn to mad jihadism’.

The millionaire comedian-turned-anarchist spoke out in a video blog he called: ‘Could I have been Jihadi John?’

He said: ‘The kernel of truth in the sprawling, bewildering, bramble of ISIS madness is society isn’t working, the system isn’t working, it’s totally corrupt.

‘That’s the thing that resonates in the core of young people, that’s the thing that pulls them into mad jihadism.’

UN Climate Chief’s Resignation Letter: Fighting Global Warming Is “My Religion”…

Rajendra Pachauri

Now that he mentions it, there is a cult-like devotion around “climate change.”

Via Newsbusters:

As Joseph Rossell noted earlier, Dr. Rajenda Pachauri, the scientist leading the fight against “climate change” at the United Nations, resigned after some sexual-harassment allegations surfaced against him in his home country of India, and the networks completely ignored it.

So it’s also obvious that they also ignored the shocking admission in Dr. Pachauri’s resignation letter: fighting against global warming, he said, was “my religion.”

“For me, the protection of planet Earth, the survival of all species and sustainability of our ecosystems is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma [the path of righteousness].”

Muslim Costco Employee Refuses To Touch Pork; Sues After Getting Transferred To Shopping Cart Patrol

Pork costco

He wanted a transfer to the IED, er electronics department.

Via BPR

A Muslim former employee has filed a lawsuit against Costco accusing the the wholesale giant of discriminating against him because he refused to handle pork or alcohol products.

The man, Jean Camara, told ABC 7 New York that he was moved from cashier’s assistant to gathering carts outside when he informed his employers that he couldn’t work with pork or alcohol due to his religious beliefs.

“Just because you have a different belief, that doesn’t give anybody the right to treat you different,” Camara said.

“We all share different beliefs so we all should be treated equally no matter what belief we have,” he added.

According to Camara, his superiors at the Brooklyn Costco never told him why he was reassigned — although it’s strange that he couldn’t figure that out on his own after complaining he couldn’t handle certain products.

He said he asked his bosses if he could work in the electronics department but his request was denied.

Camara filed a human rights complaint against the company and was fired 16 days later for “insubordinate conduct,” according to ABC 7.

Student Gov’t Reps Attack Campus Carry Advocate, Blast Him As ‘Homophobic’’ And “Racist” – There Is No Room For The Second Amendment On Campus…

Students don’t have the right to carry on campus but do have the ‘right’ to pick a gender.

Via Campus Reform

A student at Kalamazoo College has been attacked and labeled “homophobic” and “racist” by student government representatives because he wanted to facilitate a discussion about campus carry.

In an audio recording exclusively obtained by Campus Reform, students at a Student Commission meeting—K-College’s student government—interrupted Alexander Ross, a sophomore political science major, as he requested that the students engage in a conversation about campus carry, a request he had been asking the Commission for five straight weeks.

During the public comment portion of the meeting, Ross addressed the Commission’s refusal to discuss issues outside of its ideology. Despite being interrupted several times, Ross encouraged the Commission to stop automatically saying “no” to students’ requests and be more open to other viewpoints.

“I’ve been here for five weeks and I’ve talked to two of you” Ross told the Commission, which according to its website, has over 23 commissioners.

“Sorry, I’m gonna have to interrupt you because you as a white male talking to me,” protested an unidentified member of the Commission midway through Ross’s remarks.

“Seek out people who think differently than you instead of shutting them down as wrong,” Ross responded. “It’s extremely childish to call me names,” he said, but the name calling had just begun.

After his allotted time expired, Ross and his pro-Second Amendment advocacy, were berated by the Kalamazoo student government.[…]

Members accused Ross of “racism,” “homophobia,” and “sexism,” and some even went so far as to accuse Ross’s pro-Second Amendment position of desiring to kill students in black hoodies.

“I’m going to be honest with you, Alex. I never advocated for you. I never would have,” Brown said. “I would never represent you because, I couldn’t because, you directly conflict with my life. Period.”

“For anyone on this Commission to represent you would be to represent racism, sexism, homophobia,” Brown said. “And clearly you just spent two hours of your time listening that this body would like to be an anti-racist institution. So what you seek should not come from here. At least not this body with these people.”

“There will be no resolution written for your racism,” she continued. “It won’t happen. No one will support you. If you want to do this, whatever you call yourself, disrespecting, burning bridges, having no reason to create open dialogue, you’re going to continue to be the lone ranger, who from my perspective is threatened by black and brown people. So no. I will not advocate for you to get a gun to shoot me because you feel scared in the middle of the night when you see me in my black hoodie. I will not. I would not.”

ISIS Fatwa Allows Foosball Only With Beheaded Figurines So They Don’t Look Like Statues Or A Clean Shaven Mohammed…

Are the figurines beheaded in the public square?

Via ABNA 24

A fatwa issued by the so-called Islamic State (Isis) allows militants to play table football in their free time, provided that the figures are decapitated.

The religious edict, translated and shared by British analyst Aymenn J. al-Tamimi and published by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, is part of a stack of IS administrative documents focusing on education, public services and religious life. It was issued by the IS al-Buhuth wa al-Eftaa committee, which provides religious backing for the jihadists’ strict policies.

As far as table football is concerned, IS fighters can enjoy the game as long as “the head is cut off from the original part of the game [i.e. the head is cut off from the figurines so they don’t look like statues]”.[…]

The edict follows a similar ruling on billiards, with IS militants banned from betting as well as “blasphemy, cursing, scorn, resentment, hatred”.

Via NERN:

Venezuelan president Nicholas Maduro announced sweeping new travel restriction for American tourists in a speech last Saturday, including the requirement that all Americans traveling to Venezuela first obtain a visa.

“In order to protect our country…” proclaimed Presidnt Maduro, “I have decided to implement a system of compulsory visas for all Americans entering Venezuela.”

President Maduro said American tourists will now have to pay a fee comparable to the one Venezuelans pay to visit the U.S.

According to RT.com, President Maduro went on to announce former president George W. Bush and vice president Dick Cheney will not be among those granted a travel visa. The Venezuelan president says they are banned as “terrorists” for their actions in Iraq. Also named as persona non-grata were Republicans Senator Marco Rubio and Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, as well as Democratic senator Robert Menendez.

Tensions have been higher than usual between Venezuela and the U.S. after President Maduro accused Vice President Joe Biden as being the mastermind behind an attempted coup last month. Citing American interference, President Maduro also announced new restrictions on the size of the American embassy staff.

IRS Defends Allowing Illegal Aliens To Get Retroactive Tax Breaks Under Obama Executive Actions…

The only time the IRS is efficient is when they cash my check for money owed.

Via WSB Radio

A GOP Senator says he’ll push for legislation after the Internal Revenue Service confirmed that under the President’s executive actions on immigration, people who have been working illegally in the United States could claim a low income tax credit – even for time when they wrongly were present in the U.S.

In a letter sent to Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said the tax agency is not changing how it views the tax status of those now here illegally.

A copy of the IRS letter is available here.

Grassley says that will mean several million people could gain legal status in the U.S., and then retroactively claim several years of benefits under the Earned Income Tax Credit.

“Given the IRS’ interpretation of tax rules intended to prohibit undocumented workers from qualifying for the EITC, these individuals will be eligible to claim billions of dollars in tax benefits based on earnings from unauthorized work in the United States,” Grassley said on Monday.

Grassley vowed to push legislation to remedy that.

“The tax code shouldn’t reward those who broke our immigration laws,” the Iowa Republican said in a statement.

“McCarthyism”: Dem Rep. Demands Financial Info On Pro-Warming Climate Scientist Who Questions Humans Role…

112_grijalva_az07

Moral of the story: Even if you still espouse warming BS, you better walk lock-step and say it’s because of humans or else…

Via Watchdog:

Judith Curry, a decorated climate scientist at Georgia Tech, says research tells her the earth is warming.

But she’s isn’t sure how much of a role humans have played.

For that, Curry says, she has been targeted by members of Congress in a new version of McCarthyism.

“It’s ridiculous,” Curry said in a telephone interview Friday. “It’s just ridiculous.”

Curry is one of seven climate scientists whose universities received a letter from U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Arizona, the ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Natural Resources. The letter last week questions their impartiality and demands the schools provide Grijalva financial information about the scientists.

“I write today because of concerns raised in a recent New York Times report,” Grijalva said in the letters, “and documents I have received that highlight potential conflicts of interest and failure to disclose corporate funding sources in academic climate research.”

The New York Times reported that Wei-Hock “Willie” Soon of Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics failed to disclose $1.2 million in research funding from fossil fuels sources such as ExxonMobil and the Southern Company. Soon has claimed global warming can be explained, in part, by variations in the sun’s energy.

Grijalva told the universities he wants responses by March 16.

Transgender Inmate Being “Tortured” By Prison For Refusing To Turn Him Into A Woman…

Ashley will never go on the straight and narrow.

Via Mother Jones

In December 2013, Ashley Diamond, a transgender woman locked up at a men’s state prison in Georgia, found herself in solitary confinement. Rutledge State Prison warden Shay Hatcher, she says, put her there for “pretending to be a woman.” The 36-year-old Diamond, who was first diagnosed with gender dysphoria as a teenager, had been denied hormone therapy since entering the prison system in 2012. She still identified as a woman, even as her body was becoming more masculine, causing her extreme anxiety and physical pain.

Later that month, Diamond claims, Hatcher sent her to solitary for a second time after she met with lawyers. About six days later, still in isolation, Diamond told him that she was not pretending, but rather had serious medical needs requiring treatment—and that she was suicidal due to her lack of care. That same day, Diamond tried to cut off her penis with a razor and kill herself; she was hospitalized on an emergency basis. She then received a letter from the medical director of the Georgia Department of Corrections (GDC), saying that the officials who had confiscated her women’s clothes and refused to provide her with hormone therapy had handled matters “appropriately.”

Now, Diamond is taking her grievances to court. Earlier this month, the Southern Poverty Law Center initiated a lawsuit on her behalf that accuses eight current and former GDC employees of wrongfully denying her hormone therapy against the recommendations of doctors, and of failing to protect her from at least seven cases of sexual assault. Court documents, including copies of correspondences between Diamond and prison authorities, allege numerous incidents in which officials mistreated and outright harassed her. (The GDC declined to comment.)[…]

In April 2012, Diamond was imprisoned due to a parole violation for an earlier theft. She had been taking estrogen treatments, progestin creams, testosterone blockers, and anti-androgen medications for 17 years. Even so, prison authorities terminated her hormone therapy and assigned her to a close-security facility for adult male felons and other inmates with histories of assault and gang affiliation. Less than one month later, six gang members sexually assaulted her, according to court documents. After she complained, she says she was transferred in May 2012 to another close-security facility housing male felons, where she claims she was again sexually assaulted.[…]

In a February letter to GDC Commissioner Brian Owens, requesting her transfer from Valdosta State Prison, Diamond wrote, “I am not trying to be difficult or make my way hard. I just want to do my time safely and go home.” In her video statement, she added, “This is more than just about hormone care. This is about gross human rights violations. Three years of torture is enough.”

Moonbats Latest Scott Walker Scandal: His Spokeswomen Are WAY TOO HOT…

Walkerspokeswomen

Scott Walker lives in their heads rent free.

Via The DC

The crusade to find some scandal — any scandal — to sink 2016 Republican presidential frontrunner Scott Walker officially jumped the shark on Monday when a deeply concerned American suggested that the Wisconsin governor’s spokeswomen are problematically attractive.

Isthmus, an alternative weekly newspaper out of Madison, raised the allegation in Tell All, a regular advice column.

“Dear Tell All,” troubled reader Kate Mallet wrote, “I can’t help noticing that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker picks beautiful young women to be the spokespeople for his administration and his campaigns.”

Mallet mentions four dazzling, alluring spokeswomen currently or previously employed by Walker: Laurel Patrick, Alleigh Marré, Jocelyn Webster and Ciara Matthews.

“It reminds me of Fox News, which uses super-sexy women as on-air talent rather than a normal range of women who just happen to be good journalists,” Mallet murmurs. “As with Fox, it’s hard to believe that the most talented females available to fill Walker’s frontline jobs also look like models.”

The reader then offers up a malignant conspiracy of beauty on par with the evils of tobacco companies.

“The thinking seems to be: We’ll use this eye candy to make our ‘product’ more palatable, just as the advertising industry has always done with noxious products like cigarettes and fast food,” Mallet proposes.

Not Just Hillary: Source Tells Gawker Top Clinton Aides Also Used Private Emails At State Department…

Including Huma Abedin…

Via Gawker:

Hillary Clinton is defending her use of a private email address, hosted at ClintonEmail.com, to conduct official State Department business by claiming that her emails were captured by official @state.gov accounts that other agency employees were instructed to use to contact her. But according to a knowledgeable source, at least two other top Clinton aides also used private email accounts to conduct government business—placing their official communications outside the scope of federal record-keeping regulations.

“Her top staffers used those Clinton email addresses” at the agency, said the source, who has worked with Clinton in the past. The source named two staffers in particular, Philippe Reines and Huma Abedin, who are said to have used private email addresses in the course of their agency duties. Reines served as deputy assistant secretary of state, and Abedin as Clinton’s deputy chief of staff. Both rank among Clinton’s most loyal confidantes, in and out of the State Department.

We were able to independently verify that Abedin used a ClintonEmail.com address at some point in time. There are several email addresses associated with Abedin’s name in records maintained by Lexis-Nexis; one of them is [email protected] An email sent to that address today went through without bouncing.

Stop the Insanity: KC Barbecue Society Tells BBQ Pitmasters To Take Down American Flags In Alabama…

BBQ

Wait for the pork ban in the interest of political correctness.

Via FOX News

Nothing says America quite like smoking a pork butt and flying Old Glory.

“The sport of professional barbecue is extremely American and family oriented,” said pitmaster Jeff Petkevicius.

So you can imagine Jeff’s extreme displeasure when organizers of an Alabama barbecue competition ordered him – along with other competitors to take down the American flags hanging from their barbecue trailers.

It happened Feb. 27th at the Sam’s Club National BBQ Competition in Daphne, Ala., sponsored by the Kansas City Barbecue Society.

Jeff is the founder of “Give it to God” competition barbecue — a professional barbecue team that smokes meat and shares the love of Jesus. Both are noble missions.

Last Friday Jeff rolled into town with his barbecue trailer and promptly hoisted Old Glory. Not too long after, one of the organizers of the event told Jeff to take down the flag.

“There were six or eight of us that had flags flying,” he told me. “He went to each camp and told them to take the flag down and everybody did.” […]

So Jeff had a change of heart and decided to raise Old Glory – as an act of defiance.

“It was a matter of saying there are things more important (than a barbecue competition),” he said. “If they want to kick me out – I’ll leave.”

Jeff was not kicked out and he was not asked to take down the flag. As a matter of fact – after he re-raised the flag another competitor followed suit.

So why were the patriotic pitmasters told to take down the flags?

Jeff said they were told by event organizers that the flags violated a city ordinance in Daphne. But that allegation turned out to be false.

“No one from the city advised or asked anyone to take down flags of any type,” Mayor Dane Haygood told me. “”We proudly and boldly display American flags and we encourage everyone in the community to do the same.”

By 2044, America as a whole is projected to be majority-minority.

Via MRCTV:

According to a new U.S. Census Bureau report released Tuesday, more than half (50.2%) of the nation’s children are expected to be a part of a minority race or ethnic group by 2020.

Entitled “Projections of the Size and Composition of the U.S. Population: 2014 to 2060,” the report examines the total U.S. population, native and foreign born.

Other major findings include the following:

The total U.S. population is projected to increase by 98.1 million between 2014 and 2060, from an estimated 319 million to 417 million respectively.
By 2030, all baby boomers will have reached age 65 or older.
The percent of foreign born is expected to increase each decade, its rate of growth projected to outpace that of natives.
By 2044, the U.S. population as a whole is expected to become majority-minority.
By 2060, the nation’s foreign-born will reach nearly one in five of the total population, from 13 percent in 2014 to 19 percent.
Also by the year 2060, an estimated 36 percent of children (people under age 18) will be “single-race non-Hispanic White,” compared with 52 percent today.

House Holds Special Hearing On Security Failures In Consulate Attack In Benghazi

Second committee to announce a probe today. Update to this story.

Via NY Post:

A congressional committee will review whether Hillary Clinton violated federal law by using a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, it was announced Tuesday.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said his panel will join with the Benghazi committee in reviewing whether Clinton broke any disclosure laws.

“Violations of the Federal Records Act within federal agencies is something we take very seriously,” Chaffetz said.

“The House Oversight Committee will work with (Chairman) Mr. (Trey) Gowdy and the Select Committee on Benghazi to further explore Hillary Clinton’s use of personal emails while at the State Department.”

Clinton, still facing fallout from a 2012 attack on a diplomatic outpost in Libya that killed an ambassador and three security aides, is under fire for the email controversy.

Critics said that by using a personal email address, Clinton may have breached security and broken disclosure laws.

Not only did Clinton send and receive tens of thousands of emails from the unregulated address, she was never during her four-year tenure issued an official government account with which to communicate.

Iraqi Minister Says Jews Secretly Behind ISIS Destruction Of Ancient Arti­facts In Mosul…

Accord­ing to AlMayadeen, the Iraqi offi­cial “accused Israel of being behind the destruc­tion and the loot­ing of archae­o­log­i­cal sites in Mosul, includ­ing the City Museum.” Hus­sein said, “Israel bares the pri­mary respon­si­bil­ity in the van­dal­ism of the archae­o­log­i­cal sites.” He also claimed that the Iraqi gov­ern­ment has evi­dence that antiques have been sold out and trans­ferred from Iraq to Israel, stress­ing that Israel “is con­sid­ered, today, a place to assem­ble the Iraqi antiq­ui­ties, where some are kept while oth­ers are exported over­seas to be sold at auctions.”

Accord­ing to Hus­sein, Israel is behind these acts of destruc­tion because of “the Torah and Jew­ish mythology.”
