Good News! ISIS Leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi Seriously Wounded In Air Strike

Someone needed a little better aim…

Via The Guardian:

The leader of Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been seriously wounded in an air strike in western Iraq, sources have told the Guardian.

A source in Iraq with connections to the terror group revealed that Baghdadi suffered serious injuries during an attack by the US-led coalition in March. The source said Baghdadi’s wounds were at first life-threatening, but he has since made a slow recovery. He has not, however, resumed day-to-day control of the organisation.

Baghdadi’s wounding led to urgent meetings of Isis leaders, who initially believed he would die and made plans to name a new leader.

Two separate officials – a western diplomat and an Iraqi adviser – separately confirmed the strike took place on 18 March in the al-Baaj a district of Nineveh, close to the Syrian border. There had been two previous reports in November and December of Baghdadi being wounded, though neither was accurate.

Lesbian Couple Sues Atlanta Sperm Bank After They Learn Donor Is Schizophrenic Dropout…

What are the odds these two champions of diversity vote Democrat?

He was good on paper: Eloquent, mature, healthy and smart to boot.

That’s why Angela Collins and Margaret Elizabeth Hanson say they chose Donor 9623 to be the biological father of their child.

Then last June, almost seven years after Collins gave birth to a son conceived with his sperm, they got a batch of emails from the sperm bank that unexpectedly — and perhaps mistakenly — included the donor’s name. That set them on a sleuthing mission that quickly revealed he is schizophrenic, dropped out of college and had been arrested for burglary, they said in a lawsuit filed March 31 in Atlanta.

On top of that, the photo of him they’d seen when deciding on a donor had been altered to remove a large mole on his cheek, the suit says.

Collins and Hanson said the Atlanta sperm bank promoted the donor’s sperm, saying it came from a man with an IQ of 160, an undergraduate degree in neuroscience and a master’s degree in artificial intelligence, who was pursuing a Ph.D. in neuroscience engineering. He was eloquent, “mature beyond his years” and had “an impressive health history,” sperm bank staff told them, according to the lawsuit.

“They represented him, both orally and in their donor literature, to be the best of the best,” a lawyer for the pair, Nancy Hersh, told The Associated Press.

The women, who live in Ontario, Canada, sued Xytex Corp., its parent company, sperm bank employees and the man they say was the misrepresented donor — the biological father of at least three dozen children, according to the lawsuit.[…]

Black Supremacist Civil War! Michael Eric Dyson Kicks Cornel West Out Of Race Baiter Club For Being Too Critical Of Obama…

dyson_and_west.jpg.CROP.rtstoryvar-large

My hands down favorite part of Dyson’s horrifically jealous screed – when he claims he “was just as critical” of Obama as West has been, which is complete and total BS. Dyson’s role in the Obama-era is to use his time on MSNBC as the porn equivalent of a fluffer.

Via Michael Eric Dyson (New Republic):

Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned” is the best-known line from William Congreve’s The Mourning Bride. But I’m concerned with the phrase preceding it, which captures wrath in more universal terms: “Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned.” Even an angry Almighty can’t compete with mortals whose love turns to hate.

Cornel West’s rage against President Barack Obama evokes that kind of venom. He has accused Obama of political minstrelsy, calling him a “Rockefeller Republican in blackface”; taunted him as a “brown-faced Clinton”; and derided him as a “neoliberal opportunist.” In 2011, West and I were both speakers at a black newspaper conference in Chicago. During a private conversation, West asked how I escaped being dubbed an “Obama hater” when I was just as critical of the president as he was. I shared my three-part formula for discussing Obama before black audiences: Start with love for the man and pride in his epic achievement; focus on the unprecedented acrimony he faces as the nation’s first black executive; and target his missteps and failures. No matter how vehemently I disagree with Obama, I respect him as a man wrestling with an incredibly difficult opportunity to shape history. West looked into my eyes, sighed, and said: “Well, I guess that’s the difference between me and you. I don’t respect the brother at all.”

West’s animus is longstanding, and only intermittently broken by bouts of calculated love. In February 2007, West lambasted Obama’s decision to announce his bid for the presidency in Illinois, instead of at journalist Tavis Smiley’s State of the Black Union meeting in Virginia, calling it proof that the nascent candidate wasn’t concerned about black people. “Coming out there is not fundamentally about us. It’s about somebody else. [Obama’s] got large numbers of white brothers and sisters who have fears and anxieties, and he’s got to speak to them in such a way that he holds us at arm’s length.” It is hard to know which is more astonishing: West faulting Obama for starting his White House run in the state where he’d been elected to the U.S. Senate—or the breathtaking insularity of equating Smiley’s conference with black America.

Despite West’s disapproval of Obama, he eventually embraced the political phenom, crossing the country as a surrogate and touting his Oval Office bona fides. The two publicly embraced at a 2007 Apollo Theater fundraiser in Harlem during which West christened Obama “my brother… companion and comrade.” Obama praised West as “a genius, a public intellectual, a preacher, an oracle,” and “a loving person.” […]

West remained allied with Obama until he took the White House and, in football parlance, faked left and ran right. “[Obama] posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit,” West complained in an interview with Salon. “He acted as if he was … concerned about the issues of serious injustice and inequality, and it turned out that he’s just another neoliberal centrist with a smile and with a nice rhetorical flair.” It’s worth noting that the president’s actions were in keeping with the demands of his profession: Like most recent Democratic politicians, Obama nodded in a progressive direction while campaigning but toed a more centrist line when it came time to govern. What distinguishes West is that he assailed Obama’s insufficient leftism and proclaimed it a racial betrayal. “I would rather have a white president fundamentally dedicated to eradicating poverty and enhancing the plight of working people than a black president tied to Wall Street and drones,” he told The Guardian. …

West’s fears of his narcissistic tendencies seem to have come true in his fight with President Obama. Hedges also used the language of the jilted lover in describing West, noting that he “nurses, like many others who placed their faith in Obama, the anguish of the deceived, manipulated, and betrayed.” West admitted to Hedges in their interview that he went “ballistic” about Obama because he had been “thoroughly misled”; or, put differently, he was crushed that Obama had ideologically cheated on him.

West’s narcissism in this matter is not exemplified by his sense of being jilted but in the way he has personalized his grief. And the longer West has nursed his resentment, the more he has revealed parts of himself that even he may not understand or be able to explain, since political disappointment in a politician’s behavior rarely provokes such torrents of passion, such protracted, dastardly, and sadly, such self-destructive hate. The volatility that West said roils his personal relations may also mar his political ones. Now he lumbers into his future, punch-drunk from too many fights unwisely undertaken, facing a cruel reality: His greatest opponent isn’t Obama, Sharpton, Harris-Perry, or me. It is the ghost of a self that spits at him from his own mirror.

Harvard History Professor Asks Students To Self-Assign “Privilege Points”…

Harvard-AP

What are the odds “white” is listed as one of the items classified as a privilege?

Via NY Times:

…Colleges may not realize it, but signals they send can project upper-middle-class values. The $15 for a class outing can require an hour and a half of work; free tickets to student events are supposed to be handled discreetly but get announced at the door.

Dr. Khurana, the Harvard College dean, said his icebreaker for students — share what your parents do for work — made a first-generation student uncomfortable last year; he now asks instead for a funny story about their middle name.

Ms. Barros was embarrassed during a history discussion about inequality in which the teaching fellow gave students a list of 20 items, from trust funds to college savings plans, and told them to award themselves a point for each. The instructor asked students to raise their hands as he called out totals — 10 privilege points, 11, 12 — so he could mark them on the board. “The numbers didn’t tally up” to the number of students in the class, said Ms. Barros, who with only a single point kept her hand down.

Nicole M. Stephens, a professor at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, said such cultural signals enable affluent students to see college as “a continuation of their experience.” A first-generation student may wonder “if someone like me can do well here.”

Students who don’t think they fit in are less likely to reach out for help and more likely to suffer emotionally and have lower grades, said Dr. Stephens.

What would it take to change that?

Dr. Stephens and colleagues published a study last year in Psychological Science in which freshmen were assigned to attend one of two hourlong orientation sessions. In one, panelists gave advice about the transition to college and challenges like choosing classes. In the other, the same panelists wove their backgrounds into advice.

A panelist (three of the eight were first generation) might share that “because my parents didn’t go to college, this is one of the obstacles I faced.” Privileged students shared, too, in one case describing how it was hard to be in large classes because she was used to one-on-one instruction at prep school.

Lib Rag The Root Salivates Over The Possibility Of A … (Brace Yourselves) … Michelle Obama Presidency…

Mooch

I know, it’s still a bit early in the day for the cringe-inducing thought of a Mooch presidency.

Via The Root:

Too soon, too soon, of course.

After observing close-up the kind of headwinds her husband has met in Washington, D.C., and beyond, there is absolutely no indication that first lady Michelle Obama is looking to place her own name on any ballot. She has, in fact, said the opposite, although in his just-released book, Michelle Obama: A Life, veteran journalist Peter Slevin reports that she has always been a full partner in her husband’s political career. But it is significant that former first lady, U.S. Sen. and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has hired Michelle Obama’s former communications chief as Clinton enters her bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

With approval ratings that have always surpassed her husband’s and ovations over everything from her Let’s Move! campaign to her Tonight Show dance-offs with host Jimmy Fallon, Obama’s image is one to envy and emulate.

According to reports, Clinton plans to go small in her campaign this time around, emphasizing personality and connection with voters.

If Obama followed Clinton’s path, from first lady to political candidate, she would start out with loads of goodwill. Would she ever be tempted to test that popularity? At a luncheon event during 2014’s National Association of Black Journalists convention in Boston, Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree, who mentored both Barack and Michelle Obama when they were students there, made his own pitch for the first lady’s next career move. While he acknowledged her desire to stay far away from the fray, he deemed President Obama the second-best politician living in the White House.

Though she has been shielded from some of the roughest charges thrown the president’s way, as first lady, Michelle Obama has withstood a fair amount of attacks—personal and political—from both liberals and conservatives. She has been criticized for her work touting healthy eating, her choice not to conform to some feminists’ ideas and even her very body. But like early efforts to tag her as an “angry black woman,” none of the charges have seemed to stick.

As an officeholder, she would be fighting increasingly vicious partisan bickering, but she would also benefit from a ready-made platform of issues that she has worked on in the White House, from childhood obesity to support for military families. The cameras already show up whenever and wherever she’s around.

When she and President Obama took a brief stroll on Washington’s streets during the 2009 inauguration parade, deciding to leave their car to walk and wave on that sunny, frigid day, people climbed over one another to catch a glimpse. When I interviewed workers at a North Carolina truck plant, reacting to a presidential visit in 2012, Molly Costner had not yet made up her mind about her vote in that year’s election, but she was a fan of the first lady, proclaiming her so down-to-earth that she would be the kind of friend you would invite on a shopping trip.

Netanyahu And Rivlin Refuse To Meet With Jimmy Carter

Awww….

Via Washington Examiner:

Former President Jimmy Carter won’t be welcomed with open arms when he visits Israel in the coming weeks.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin and Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu rejected a request from the former president to meet with them when he visits Israel in the coming weeks, a senior official told Haaretz.

The Foreign Ministry and the National Security Council of the Prime Minister’s Office made the decision after inner consultations over the past few days. According to the senior official, the decision was made for Rivlin and Netanyahu not to meet with Carter because of what they viewed as his “anti-Israeli” stance over the last few years.

Specifically the Foreign Ministry recommended Carter not meet with the Israeli leaders due to his stance during the summer war in Gaza in which Carter called for the removal of Hamas from the American State Department’s list of terror organizations.

Israel however did approve Carter’s request to visit Gaza during his visit to Israel.

Out-Of-Touch Hillary “Surprised” That Small Businesses Struggling

She is deeply stupid.

Hey Hillary, maybe the Democratic policies of over-taxing and over-regulation that you had a hand in might have something to do with it.

Via National Review:

Hillary Clinton admitted today that she was “surprised” to learn that the people who told her small businesses have struggled in recent years were actually correct. Clinton noted that small business creation has “stalled out,” to her chagrin. “I was very surprised to see that when I began to dig into it,” she said while campaigning in New Hampshire. “Because people were telling me this as I traveled around the country the last two years, but I didn’t know what they were saying and it turns out that we are not producing as many small businesses as we use to.”

Shocking Video Of Muslim Attack On Church In Niger; After Charlie Hebdo Attack, 69 Churches Were Burnt Because They Were Christian

This was from after the Hebdo attack, but it shows the danger Christians are facing from ‘non-terrorist’ Muslim mobs.

Via Right Scoop:

In the wake of the terrorist attack on the offices of the French magazine Charlie Hebdo, Muslims in Niger went on a rampage burning down 69 churches and 11 homes in just a few hours, all because they were Christian.

CBN News has gotten their hands on never seen before footage that shows dozens of Muslims burning down one church while beating a Christian member of that same church outside. The pastor says that it is still very difficult for him to watch.

Another pastor told CBN News that they believe this attack on the Christian churches was systematic and organized because, otherwise, it doesn’t make sense that 69 churches and 11 Christian homes would all be burned down in a matter of hours. He is quite sure someone planned this attack.

Since the attack, no arrests have been made.

CBN News interviewed a Muslim leader in the area who said that Islam was a religion of peace and that Muslims were not involved in burning of the churches, suggesting that if the men who did the burnings were arrested that Christians would be among them.

But a local pastor who has lived there for 35 years says that’s ridiculous, explaining that they were shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’. But even more than that he says he knows a Muslim when he sees one.

Laugh Or Cry? Illegal Immigrant Busted By Border Patrol Agents Using Stolen BORDER PATROL AGENT’S Identity…

obama-border-patrol-national-security-on-the-cheap1

Un-freaking-believable. What are the chances of this happening?

Via Valley Central:

When Border Patrol agents checked a bus passenger’s papers at the Falfurrias checkpoint last week, they did a double-take.

The bus passenger handed them a driver’s license identifying himself as David, a 34-year-old man from Edinburg, according to federal court records.

Along with the driver’s license, the man had a birth certificate and a Social Security card identifying him as David.

Border Patrol agents working the checkpoint at 1 a.m. Thursday, though, knew David — and he wasn’t the guy on the bus.

They would have recognized him: David is a fellow Border Patrol agent assigned to the Falfurrias area, according to federal court records.

Border Patrol agents pulled the passenger off the Houston-bound bus and took him to the Falfurrias Station for questioning. The man admitted he was actually 24-year-old Orlando Castaneda-Diaz, a Mexican citizen who claimed to have illegally crossed the border on April 12, according to the federal criminal complaint against him.

Castaneda-Diaz said he bought the documents from a man in Matamoros for $2,000, according to the criminal complaint, and had never met the real David.

The real David, who KGBT-TV reached through National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 — the union that represents agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector — asked to be identified by his middle name to protect his privacy.

Border Patrol agents arrested Castaneda-Diaz and contacted the U.S. State Department’s Diplomatic Security Bureau.

Obama And Erdogan To Help Open New Mosque In Maryland

Via Right Scoop:

A couple of years ago it was reported that Turkey was helping fund the building of a $100 million dollar mega mosque in Lanham, Maryland. In fact Erdogan visited the mosque when he was here in May of 2013, promising to come back for the opening.

Well that time has apparently arrived and now Erdogan and Obama will be together at the mosque for the big opening ceremony:

ANADOLU AGENCY – The presidents of Turkey and the U.S. will open the Turkish-American Culture and Civilization Center in Maryland, Turkey’s foreign minister said Sunday.

Mevlut Cavusoglu, on a three-day visit to Washington, visited the center that also has a middle-sized mosque, and lunched with representatives from the American Muslim community.

“During a phone call, President (Recep Tayyip) Erdogan asked President (Barack) Obama to accompany him in opening the center together and President Obama accepted his offer’in principle,’” Cavusoglu told the representatives.

If Obama’s schedule allows at the time of the opening, he will accompany Erdogan.

Man Who Taxed The Rain, Democrat Martin O’Malley: GOP’s Take On Economy “Bulls–t”

Screen Shot 2015-04-20 at 6.59.37 PM

Ah Leftists, such classy folk. Notice like every other imperious leftist, once he pronounces it, that’s the “last word”, no one may question.

This from a guy voted out because he led his state to virtually dead last in the country in economic growth, 49/50, with 40 consecutive tax hikes, including his infamous tax on rain.

Via The Hill:

Possible presidential contender Martin O’Malley (D) on Monday mocked Republican arguments that federal regulations keep poor and middle-class people from moving up the economic ladder.

“It is not true that regulation holds poor people down, or regulation keeps middle class from advancing,” O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland, said Monday in an interview with NPR’s Steve Inskeep. “That’s kind of patently bulls—.”

“That’s quite a last word, by the way, on that subject. … I’m just going to leave it right there,” Inskeep responded.

O’Malley said working-class people are hurt by a tax code that is riddled with special interest loopholes. He said “the concentrated wealth and accumulated power and the systematic deregulation of Wall Street” is responsible for an economy that “isn’t working for most of us.”

O’Malley is considering challenging Hillary Clinton (D) for the Democratic presidential nomination. In recent weeks, he’s become increasingly aggressive in attacking the former secretary of State.

Limbaugh Blasts Obama: Climate Change “One Of The Biggest Scams Ever Perpetrated On The People Of The World”…

rush-limbaugh-640x360

Yup.

Via Daily Caller:

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh blasted President Barack Obama’s insistence that climate change “poses the world’s biggest threat” Monday after hundreds drowned trying to flee Libya and ISIS beheaded more Christians over the weekend.

Opening his Monday program, Limbaugh called climate change “one of the biggest scams that has ever been perpetrated on the people of the world,” adding that the whole idea isn’t “even worth a factual discussion.”

The comments Limbaugh was questioning came from Obama’s weekly address on Saturday, in which he said there is “no greater threat” than climate change ahead of Earth Day, which he plans to spend in the Florida Everglades.

“The point is that we got Iran on the verge of a nuclear weapon. ISIS is on the march beheading and killing Christians everywhere…There is mass murder, there is death, there is mayhem, there is torture, there is slavery. The human condition is in great peril all over the world,” Limbaugh said. “And here he comes again, Barack Hussein O, the President of the United States on Saturday saying that climate change poses the world’s biggest threat. It’s just silly. It’s not even worth a factual discussion.”

“Even though there hasn’t been any increase in the world’s temperature for 18 years and even if it were to happen, even if the global warming that is predicted by these baseless computer models, even if it were to happen exactly as the models say, it’s not the end of anything,” Limbaugh continued.

Americans Come To Their Senses: In A Major Shift, New Poll Shows Gun Rights Now Tops Gun Control…

ILLINOIS_GOVERNOR_GUNS_44703275

Awesome news… although it should always be this way…

Via Washington Examiner:

Exactly two years after President Obama’s bid for gun control following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting died in Congress, a new poll has discovered a huge shift in public opinion to backing Second Amendment gun rights and away from controlling gun ownership.

The reason: Americans now believe having a gun is the best way to protect against crime, 63 percent to 30 percent.

Pew Research Center found that while support for gun control once reached 66 percent, it has dropped to 46 percent while support for gun rights has jumped 52 percent, the highest ever in the past 25 years.

“We are at a moment when most Americans believe crime rates are rising and when most believe gun ownership – not gun control – makes people safer,” said the survey.

To say the shift in opinion is radical is not an understatement. It follows a short period where Americans were torn over gun ownership, but eventually sided with gun rights groups during the Obama years.

Moonbat Students Hold “Shit-In” For Gender Neutral Bathrooms, Tell People To Check Their “Potty Privilege”…

Shit-In

Uhh…

Via Campus Reform:

Students at California Polytechnic University recently held a “shit-in” to teach their peers about gender neutral bathrooms

Last Tuesday, members of Cal Poly’s Queer Student Union began circulating a petition requesting that the university add “Gender Diversity” signs to existing “all-gender bathrooms” on campus. Tuesday also kicked off the group’s three-day “shit-in” during which students were encouraged to only use gender neutral bathrooms on campus.

“Put yourself in the shoes of a trans*/gender non-conforming student and take the pledge to use only all gender bathrooms,” states the group’s Facebook page.

According to the petition, the public university in San Luis Obispo, Calif. currently has seventeen all-gender bathrooms, but only five are “reasonably accessible, leaving non-cisgender students with a paltry amount of options when it comes to using the bathroom.”

“When we’re talking about inclusive practices, policies and facilities for transgender and non-gender-conforming students, one of the first things that comes up is access to restrooms,” QSU’s club adviser Adam Serafin told Cal Poly’s Mustang News. “And what’s behind that is access to a safe place to use a restroom. Somewhere that is emotionally safe, but also physically safe for students.”
