Minnesota Muslims Demand The Free Food They Get From Food Bank Be Halal…

How about a “thank you” first?

Via BPR:

Muslim activists in Minnesota – that’s the heartland state that’s sent at least two men to fight on the side of Islamic fascists in Iraq – are demanding their own section in the local food bank so illiterate families can pick up free food that lives up to their expectations.

According to WCCO, the CBS affiliate in the Twin Cities, a group of first-generation Somali-Americans marched into Hennepin County Commissioner Peter McLaughlin’s office last week to demand he do something about the pork and beans and other free foodstuffs that are contaminating the provender.

“It’s about human rights also, basic human rights to get the proper food and also healthy food,” said Hassan Mohamud, the protesters’ imam.

Federal Employees Using Government Credit Cards At Casinos, Racetracks…

An audit found poor oversight at a government agency? You don’t say…

Via Washington Free Beacon:

Department of Transportation (DOT) employees use government credit cards for cash advances at casinos and racetracks, according to a report by the Office of Inspector General (OIG).

Employees misused their government-issued travel cards in 2012, racking up $2.1 million in charges for personal items, and more than $180,000 in unauthorized cash advances while they were not on business trips.

The audit, released last week, examined the travel card program, which employees are authorized to use on hotels, transportation, and meals during government travel. The OIG found that the DOT does not have effective policies in place to prevent the government credit cards from being misused. In fact, the agency has no policy prohibiting employees from taking cash advances out at casinos.

UN Climate Summit Speakers Fly 1 Million Miles to Vilify Air Travel, Carbon Output…

gore world

Guys, they swear it’s not hypocrisy. It’s raising awareness or something like that. Meanwhile, Obama’s travel there emits more CO2 than 22 people combined over an entire year

Via CNS News:

The UN Climate Summit 2014 is a glaring example of hypocrisy. Just the speakers alone, not the attendees or notable guests for the summit, traveled a grand total of 1,036,537 miles from locations as distant as China, India and Peru. That’s enough miles to circle the equator 41.6 times.

According to the UN itself, in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, “more than 95 percent of our total carbon footprint resulted from air travel.”

This isn’t the first time that climate alarmists have demonstrated their hypocrisy with a “do what we say, not what we do” message.

Al Gore has been criticized for flying to events in a private plane. Naomi Klein, a registered participant of the event (though not one of the speakers), is very critical of air travelers, even though she flies frequently. The Guardian reported on Sept. 14, that Klein actually flies “a lot more than most people, and is set to rack up enough air miles to make her, by her own admission, a ‘climate criminal.’

Bill Clinton Wants The Corporate Tax Rate That He Signed Into Law Cut…

clinton

Admitting he was wrong or posturing for Hillary?

Via Washington Examiner:

Former President Bill Clinton, who signed into law budget measures that led to the developed world’s highest corporate rate of 35 percent, wants it cut to encourage U.S. business to stop fleeing overseas.

What’s more, the husband of the leading 2016 Democratic presidential hopeful also called on Washington to stop elevating the tax charged on overseas earnings of U.S. corporations.

Clinton, in an interview with CNBC’s Becky Quick during his Clinton Global Initiative event, said when he raised taxes, the agreement was that the U.S. corporate tax rate would be about equal to the “average rate” of developed countries, not the top as it is now.

“We need tax reform,” he told Quick.

Lawmakers Went On $766,000 Worth of Trips During Month Away From Congress…

Via Capitol City Project:

During the month of August, members of Congress and their staffers took over 200 trips which cost $766,000.

August recess is typically a period in which congressional members spend time meeting with constituents or fundraising, especially during an election year. This year, however, many members took trips around the world — as far as the Philippines and Senegal — and the overall costs of the trips have increased substantially since 2012, according to newly released data from LegiStorm.

Gun Control Activist Busted For Illegally Carrying Gun At School Gets Slap On Wrist…

I think we all know what would’ve happened if this guy were pro-gun…

Via Daily Caller:

Back in February, a Buffalo, N.Y. community activist who pushed for a highly restrictive 2013 gun control law was arrested for — wait for it — carrying a gun illegally at a public elementary school.

The wheels of criminal justice have now slowly, slowly churned to completion. And wouldn’t you know it? The judge in the case has now found it in his heart to give the heat-packing activist, Dwayne Ferguson, a generously light sentence.

On Monday, Judge John L. Michalek sentenced Ferguson to 100 hours of community service and a conditional discharge, according to local CBS affiliate WIVB. Michalek also sternly ordered Ferguson to keep his nose clean.

If Ferguson completes the service requirements and stays out of trouble, he won’t have to answer for the substantially more serious charge initially levied against him: Possessing a firearm on schools grounds. (He initially was looking at two felony charges of criminal gun possession.)

Moonbat Actress Emma Thompson: Climate Change Skeptics Are “Bonkers”…

Speaking of bonkers

Via Telegraph:

The Oscar-winning actress marched alongside designer Vivienne Westwood, musician Peter Gabriel and an estimated 40,000 other people at Sunday’s rally.

The march was one of 2,000 events taking place in 150 countries around the world ahead of a UN climate summit in New York tomorrow, which more than 120 leaders including David Cameron and US president Barack Obama are expected to attend. [...]

Ms Thompson said that there could now be no excuse for denying that man-made climate change exists, and that ignoring it was tantamount to “a form of collective suicide”.

“We didn’t realise what they were doing but now we do know – you’ve got 97 per cent of climatologists, the science is all there.

“Anyone who tries to deny it now looks a little bit bonkers,” she said.

“We have to get all our governments, including the UN, who have been making a lot of noise about it but actually there are so many vested interests and they have to be challenged, which is why this has to be the greatest grass roots activist movement of all time,” she added.

ISIS Hasn’t Lost Any Ground Since Obama Began Airstrikes Six Weeks Ago…

Worst Commander-in-Chief ever.

BAGHDAD — After six weeks of American airstrikes, the Iraqi government’s forces have scarcely budged the Sunni extremists of the Islamic State from their hold on more than a quarter of the country, in part because many critical Sunni tribes remain on the sidelines.

Although the airstrikes appear to have stopped the extremists’ march toward Baghdad, the Islamic State is still dealing humiliating blows to the Iraqi Army. On Monday, the government acknowledged that it had lost control of the small town of Sichar and lost contact with several hundred of its soldiers who had been besieged for nearly a week at a camp north of the Islamic State stronghold of Falluja, in Anbar Province.

By midday, there were reports that hundreds of soldiers had been killed there in battle or mass executions. Ali Bedairi, a lawmaker from the governing alliance, said more than 300 soldiers had died after the loss of the base, Camp Saqlawiya. The prime minister ordered the arrest of the responsible officers, although a military spokesman put the death toll at just 40 and said 68 were missing.

Obama’s Travel To U.N. Climate Summit Emits More CO2 Than 22 People Combined Over An Entire Year…

Barack Obama

I was apparently wrong, Obama’s Air Force One doesn’t run on unicorn farts.

Via Daily Caller:

President Obama is racking up a massive carbon dioxide tab traveling to a United Nations climate summit being held in New York City this week.

All told, the president’s entourage could emit nearly 22 times more carbon dioxide in his trip to New York than the average American emits in an entire year, according to calculations by the free-market American Energy Alliance (AEA).

How could one person’s travel emit so much carbon dioxide? Well, this is the president we are talking about, and he doesn’t roll alone. When Obama travels he requires his presidential jet, massive amounts of security and a motorcade to haul his staffers around town.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has announced he is expanding a plan to disarm civilians.

Speaking on the International Day of Peace, Mr Maduro said his government would invest $47m (£29m) and create 60 new disarmament centres.

According to United Nations figures, Venezuela has the second highest peacetime murder rate in the world after Honduras.

Most of the murders in Venezuela are committed using firearms.

“We are building peace from within, and for that, you need disarmament,” the president said at an event in the capital, Caracas.

CAIR Sends A Koran To Every Mayor In Montana To Coincide With 9/11 Anniversary – Update: CAIR Accuses Mayor Who Objected Of “Islamophobia”…

Nihad Awad

And shockingly, some people weren’t thrilled to find a Koran in their mailbox days before 9/11.

Via Great Falls Tribune:

Last week, I received a copy of the Quran.

During a heightened period of instability in the Middle East, beheadings of Americans by Islamic terrorists, and ongoing national security threats, the Council on American-Islamic Relations sent me a copy of the Quran for my reference library.

In its cover letter, CAIR cites a 2009 speech made by President Barack Obama in Egypt where he declared that America promised “a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world.” CAIR appears to be acting upon that speech literally, and now is taking its message to the local level. In fact, I’ve learned that all major cities in Montana have been receiving copies of the Quran as part of the organization’s public relations campaign.

On its face, the distribution of the Quran may seem innocuous. At any other time, I may not have been so bothered by its delivery. However, the package arrived three days before the 13th anniversary of Sept. 11. This is noteworthy.

CAIR’s cover letter does not acknowledge in any way the anniversary of our country’s worst terrorist attack. It’s not what the letter says, it’s what it doesn’t say. CAIR does not condemn terrorist attacks or recent actions by Islamic terrorists. The expectation appears to be that we’re to simply accept this peaceful gesture and overlook what terrorists are doing in the name of the religious book.

While CAIR would likely say that the Quran was distributed as an educational reference tool and in peace, the timing reflects very poor judgment; so much so, that one could interpret the mailing as an “in your face” overture. Americans could easily misconstrue the campaign as a subtle threat.

The mailing is no coincidence. Americans need to know about this program to consider its meaning, implications and intent as world events unfold around us.

Michael J. Winters, a U.S. Air Force veteran, is mayor of the city of Great Falls.

Update: Like clockwork.

ISIS Releases New Video Of Captured British Journalist John Cantlie

Via HuffPo:

The militant Islamic State group has released another propaganda video featuring captured British journalist John Cantlie.

The video, which again shows Cantlie speaking in front of a camera in an orange jumpsuit, was released just after the US and five Arab nations launched airstrikes on ISIS targets in Syria Monday night.

In the clip, which lasts 5 minutes and 55 seconds, Cantlie warns viewers that the US is leading us into the “Gulf War III.”

“In this program, we’ll see how the Western governments are hastily marching towards all-out war in Iraq and Syria without paying any heed to the lessons of the recent past,” Cantlie said. “Not since Vietnam have we witnessed such a potential mess in the making.”

The video is the latest in a series of programs that Cantlie has purportedly been forced to record in order to “show you the truth” about ISIS and Western media propoganda. Cantlie describes himself as “the British citizen abandoned my government, and long-term prisoner of the Islamic State.”
