Jihadi Work Accident: Five Taliban Fighters Killed When Bombs They Were Building Inside A Mosque Detonate Prematurely…

JWA

When was the last time a group of Christians blew up a church while building bombs?

(Khamma Press) – A local Taliban commander was among five militants killed following an explosion inside a mosque in eastern Ghazni province of Afghanistan.

Local government officials said the militants were killed while they were making an improvised explosive device (IED) to carry out a roadside bomb explosion.

Deputy provincial governor Mohammad Ali Ahmadi said the incident took place on Saturday morning in western party of Ghazni city.

Ahmadi further added that the Taliban commander was recognized as Mullah Sadiq who was killed along with four other militants following the explosion.

The Taliban militants frequently use improvised explosive device (IED) to target Afghan and coalition security forces.

Republican Assemblywoman Schools MSNBC Host Chris Hayes In Debate On Bundy Ranch

Assemblywoman kicks butt.

Via Hot Air:

This story comes to us courtesy of The Right Scoop. (Which makes sense since I don’t watch any of the cable news evening lineup and haven’t seen Chris Hayes on the small screen in ages.) While people gathered at Cliven Bundy’s ranch in protest of the BLM’s handling of affairs there, the protesters were joined by Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore. This prompted MSNBC host Hayes to interview her, and the Scoop captures the video for us.

Let’s just say that Fiore wasn’t about to have the conversation steered to any Left side talking points.

Hayes tries his very best to repeatedly get Fiore to agree that Bundy is a criminal of one sort or another and goes the extra mile in slyly trying to get the Assemblywoman to say she agrees with Bundy that the federal government has no authority. She’s having none of it, and drives the conversation back to a few key points like a jackhammer.

- Why is the federal government sending men with guns to collect a debt, assuming one is owed?

- How much, if anything does Bundy actually owe? Liberals have been throwing around the figure of A MILLION DOLLARS for some time now, but then backed off to possibly only being a couple hundred thousand.

- Why is Harry Reid so heavily involved when something definitely looks “suspicious” about that?

It’s a pretty great interview, so take a look.

Newly Released Documents Show Bill Clinton Sent Friendly Handwritten Note To Chairman of Mosque Anwar Al-Awlaki Led And 9/11 Hijackers Worshipped At…

Bubba

Said he wanted to “have support from Muslims.”

Via Daily Caller:

Democratic President Bill Clinton sent a handwritten note offering to work together with the chairman of a mosque that counted 9/11 hijackers as worshippers, senior al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki as an imam, and an al-Qaeda conspirator and would-be George W. Bush assassin as a teacher and camp counselor.

Clinton sent a handwritten note on official stationery in March 2000 to the chairman of the board of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, in response to a letter from the chairman. Clinton’s note was released as part of a document dump Friday by the Clinton presidential library.

The note was marked “THE PRESIDENT HAS SEEN 3-10-00.”

“I’m interested in all these suggestions. Let’s follow up,” Clinton said in the note, in which he also said that it would be good to have support from Muslims. Clinton signed the note “Bill.”

The Dar Al-Hjrah Mosque was visited by FBI agents after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks after it was discovered that two 9/11 hijackers had worshipped at the mosque.

The mosque’s imam from 1995 to 1999, prior to Clinton’s note, was Mohammed Al Hanooti, who was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing by a U.S. attorney. Al Hanooti defended an acquaintance that was deported and indicted for arranging financial support for the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.

Caught! USPS Worker Who Was In ‘Unspeakable Pain’ Claimed $300k In Disability Checks For Five Years While Spending His Time Fishing In Alaska

Amancio Agcaoili

Disability claims have increased 20% since Obama took office.

Via The Daily Mail

A former U.S. Postal Service employee in Anchorage was arraigned Friday on charges he accepted at least $334,000 in disability and worker’s comp payments while he spent his summers fishing.

The U.S. attorney’s office says in a Friday release that 56-year-old Amacio Zamora Agcaoili Jr. was indicted by a federal grand jury on 18 counts, including theft of government funds.

They claim every summer between 2009 and 2013, he went dipnetting and fishing on multiple occasions despite being on disability.

Agcaoili faces 18 counts, including charges of wire, Social Security and Federal Employees Compensation Act fraud, as well as theft of government funds.

If found guilty, he could face up to 20 years in jail.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Yvonne Lamoreaux, the prosecutor in the case, says the case stems from a lower back injury Agcaoili began receiving Social Security and worker’s comp payments for in November 2001.

The charges say that between about Feb. 12, 2009 and continuing ‘until the present,’ Agcaoili bilked the government out of at least $334,000.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Yvonne Lamoreaux, the prosecutor in the case, says the case stems from a lower back injury Agcaoili began receiving Social Security and worker’s comp payments for in November 2001

Agcaoili allegedly did additional jobs, including preparing income tax returns and immigration forms, but lied on federal forms and said he hadn’t had other work in order to still qualify for payments.

He allegedly received money from two federal benefits programs — the Department of Labor Office of Workers’ Compensation program and the Social Security Administration Disability Insurance Benefits program.

He received the payments ‘by engaging in a scheme to defraud the federal government about the nature and extent of his injury and about the other work he was performing and income he was receiving,’.

At a doctor’s appointment in July 2009, the defendant described the pain from his lower back as ‘unbearable and constant,’ ranging from eight to 10 on a pain scale, according to the indictment.

His suffering was exacerbated by a list of physical activities: sitting, standing, walking and changing weather conditions, he allegedly said. He also reportedly used a cane to walk.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Yvonne Lamoureux also claims Agcaoli lied about not working when he was paid for preparing tax returns and immigration paperwork.

Authorities also claim he failed to tell the Social Security Administration about his worker’s comp payments, to which he wasn’t entitled.

Tweet Of The Day: Bad Idea To Have Obama As Your Co-Pilot

White House Asks American Parents To Monitor Their Children For Signs of Terrorism…

No mention of Islam.

Via Daily Caller:

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists.

Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the Muslim terrorists behind the Boston bombings.

In the very next paragraph, Monaco specifically noted racist and disgustingly anti-Semitic beliefs of Frazier Glenn Miller, the 73-year-old former Ku Klux Klan leader accused of gunning down three people at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas last 

The White House bureaucrat then settled into the heart of her speech: That Obama “has been laser-focused” on preventing “violent extremism” “by homegrown violent extremists” right here “in the United States.”

The president can’t do it all, though. He needs “local communities” to assist in observing “warning signs a person” is becoming “radicalized to violence.”

This is where the American parents of American children in America’s towns, cities and countryside can provide the greatest assistance, Monaco said.

“For instance, parents might see sudden personality changes in their children at home—becoming confrontational,” she asserted.

Hawaii Democrat Says Voters In Her State “Embarrassed” By Obamacare…

Someone didn’t get the “forcefully defend” memo.

HONOLULU – The U.S. Government Accountability Office said Wednesday it will investigate Hawaii Health Connector’s spending of its $204 million federal grant.

Senate Minority Leader Sam Slom filed a complaint March 27, asking for the investigation. [...]

The committees are looking into how the six states with troubled Obamacare exchanges spent hundreds of millions of dollars in federal grants, yet still have low enrollment and glitch-filled websites.

U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, D-Hawaii, said at the hearing residents of her state are “frustrated and embarrassed” because of the low enrollment in the Obamacare exchange, and “very concerned” about how the $204 million federal Affordable Care Act grant has been allocated and spent.

Moms Of Fallen Soldiers Denied From Marching In Seafair Torchlight Parade

0419fallen-banners2

Maybe the Parade Committee who denied them should have realized they wouldn’t be enjoying the “celebration of summer” without the sacrifices of the fallen and their families…

Via King 5:

A group called the Fallen Hero Banner project, which honors Washington service members who have died in the line of duty, applied to march in the 2014 Seafair Torchlight Parade.

But the organization recently got an email, denying them. The group said Seafair told them in part, “The banner images are a somber and sobering reminder to all of us here at home of what has been sacrificed. And to that point, the parade selection committee felt that the Fallen Hero Banner Project was not the right fit for the Torchlight Parade. Seafair and the Torchlight Parade celebrate summer, and our mission is to entertain spectators with high energy, vibrant colors and upbeat music.”

“Our banners…are a good gentle reminder and we don’t want our fallen to ever be forgotten. We thought our application would be accepted,” said Monica McNeal who lost her son Eric, 19, back in 2010.

“The banners are somber… that is a fact and as much as they want the parade to be cheerful and fun, this is also part of America,” McNeal added.

In response, Seafair gave this statement Saturday to KING5 news, “We give all applicants careful consideration. It is our goal to have a well rounded mix of participants. Last year we included over 15 military entries in the parade out of approx. 110 total entries. The military involvement will be higher this year due to our partnership with Marine Week.”

Egyptian Media: Jews Created Stories of Vampires To Cover Up The Fact That They Eat Matza Laced With Blood of Non-Jews…

The sad thing is they actually believe this.

Via MEMRI:

“[However,] the Jewish crimes which came to light throughout history and which were investigated and tried are a drop in the ocean compared to the Jewish crimes that no one knows about. The thousands of children and others who vanish around the world are probably victims of Jewish rituals. Their blood surely lies in Jewish stomachs along with the holiday matzas.

“The Jews have tried denying that they drain the blood of non-Jews and use it in their holiday matzas, and they continue to deny it. Rabbi Moussa Abu ‘Afia [one of the Jews implicated in the 1840 Damascus blood libel] converted to Islam during the investigation into the [murder] of Father Toma in order to escape punishment. He gave important testimony regarding the Talmud and the directions it contains that hint at crimes and barbarity.

“As part of the efforts to deny [the Jewish crimes], Jewish Americans wrote stories about vampires in the 1970s, in order to disassociate themselves from the accusation of sucking human blood and deceive [the mechanisms of] justice. During that period they spent millions on Dracula films, in order to deceive world public opinion. They claimed that those who slaughter children and adults and suck their blood are lunatics and that all this has nothing to do with them and their religious rituals. On February 14, 1964, the [Egyptian] magazine Al-Musawwar published a story about vampires in Colombia after many [Colombian] children had been slaughtered to shed their blood. Neither the magazine nor the investigators in Colombia dreamed that the vampires might be Jews, rather than [people who] sell blood to hospitals.”

Under The Radar: Democratic Effort To Rig The Electoral College

We need not only to win the votes, but also protecting the integrity of the vote and the Constitution.

Via Newsmax:

Conservatives slammed the campaign to effectively end the Electoral College’s role in presidential elections, saying that the National Popular Vote Compact circumvents the Constitution, saying it resembled President Barack Obama’s abuse of the law through his extensive use of executive orders.

“It is pretty startling,” Bill Kristol, founder and editor of The Weekly Standard, told “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV this week. “If they want to make the case for the popular election of presidents and a Constitutional amendment, they should make the case.

“But the left these days doesn’t make the case, and they don’t go the normal route of changing the law if they don’t like the law,” Kristol added. “They think of gimmicks and evasions and ways to get around the normal popular debate.

“This is all happening kind of quietly. I’m really struck by the way they’re doing it.”

Under the National Popular Vote Compact, each state would award its electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote. The effort has been quietly winding its way through state governments, needing 270 votes to take effect.

Via Politico:

Donald Berwick, who ran CMS in 2010 and 2011 for President Barack Obama, has built single payer health care into his platform as a candidate for Massachusetts governor. In a campaign email yesterday, Berwick said the ACA “made historic progress” but that the “next step” would be adopting a single payer system in the Bay State. “I say that it’s a crucial step — that we must control rapidly increasing health care costs in order to fund essential programs and services … Massachusetts can once again take the lead on the pathway to better, simpler, more accountable health care for everyone.” Berwick invites supporters to sign a petition for single payer on his campaign website.

Bergen Administrators Fear ‘Game of Thrones’ Quote, Censor Professor

Brace yourselves; censorship is coming!

Displaying a lack of both pop culture and First Amendment awareness, administrators at Bergen Community College in New Jersey placed Professor Francis Schmidt on leave this past January, requiring him to meet with a psychiatrist before returning to campus—just for posting a picture of his daughter in a T-shirt quoting the popular HBO television show Game of Thrones.

Schmidt, an art and animation professor, was required to meet with Jim Miller, an executive director at the college, as well as two other administrators prior to being put on leave because Miller believed he received a “threatening email” from Schmidt.

There are many problems with this accusation. First, the email was not sent from Schmidt. Jim Miller is a contact of Schmidt’s on Google+, so Miller automatically received an email from Google when Schmidt posted on Google+. Second, the “threatening” material was a picture of Schmidt’s young daughter doing yoga in a Game of Thrones T-shirt with the quote, “I will take what is mine with fire & blood.” For those who are unfamiliar with Game of Thrones, this is a quote from the character Daenerys, who is pledging to retake the throne in Westeros, a war-torn continent and the primary setting of the series.

While other characters in the show should probably be concerned that Daenerys will retake the throne with fire and blood (and dragons), administrators at Bergen Community College certainly don’t need to worry. Unfortunately, they are apparently under the impression that Schmidt’s T-shirt is not an expression of his interest in the show, but of his intentions to shoot up the school. Inexplicably, Miller claimed that he believed the “fire” described in Daenerys’ quote “could be a kind of proxy for ‘AK-47s.’”

Russia Says Obama Regime Treating Them Like A “Guilty Schoolboy” Over Ukraine…

Obama’s endless sternly worded statements getting to Putin?

MOSCOW, April 18 (Reuters) – The Kremlin on Friday described as unacceptable a U.S. threat to impose sanctions if Russia fails to fulfil its side of an international deal on Ukraine, accusing the White House of treating Moscow like a “guilty schoolboy”.

President Barack Obama said Thursday’s deal in Geneva between Russia, Ukraine and Western powers to reduce tensions in the Russian-speaking east of Ukraine was promising but that Washington and its allies were prepared to impose more sanctions on Russia if the situation fails to improve.

“Statements like those made at a high level in Washington that the United States will follow in detail how Russia fulfils its obligations … are unlikely to help dialogue,” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said.

“You can’t treat Russia like a guilty schoolboy who has to put a cross on a piece of paper to show he has done his homework,” Peskov said in an interview with Russia’s First Channel. “That kind of language is unacceptable.”

Billionaire Bought Off Obama Punting On Keystone XL With $100 Million To Promote Democrats In Midterm Elections

Screen Shot 2014-04-20 at 7.28.38 AM

We reported on Obama, once again, punting the decision on the Keystone XL pipeline.

As Sooper Mexican at IJR notes, while Harry Reid and the progressive chorus are ranting on about the Koch brothers, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay that decision.

According to IJR:

What you won’t hear about in mainstream media is how Billionaire Tom Steyer drove the decision by promising to spend $100 million to help Democrats in the midterm election who help defeat the project.

With the decision pushed back probably past the election, this allows the Democrats to be for or against the decision depending on their election chances and how badly they need Steyer’s support. Given that a majority of Americans want the project to go through, this is good news for vulnerable Democrats. Meanwhile, American jobs suffer, and whatever economic impact the project might have had on Russia is ignored for the sake of Obama’s political gain.

Palestinian Authority Accuses Ayman Al-Zawahiri of Working For The Jooos After Al-Qaeda Leader Attacks Mahmoud Abbas…

Ayman Al-Zawahiri

Yeah, no.

Via Ynet:

Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri slammed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas this week, calling him “a traitor who is selling out Palestine.”

Fatah officials were quick to respond to Zawahiri’s comments, calling him a “hypocrite,” wondering why he suddenly developed an interest in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and warned that his comments threaten to create an internal conflict among the Palestinian people.

In an audio tape posted on al-Qaeda-linked websites, Zawahiri said that “Fatah pretends to be a national liberation movement, but it has turned into a movement that sells out its homeland and its citizens.

“These people abandoned the majority of the homeland and many of its citizens, and now their president is giving up on the right of return to please the United States,” Zawahiri accused.

The al-Qaeda leader sent a message to US President Barack Obama as well, saying Obama “knows very well that we are spreading to other countries besides Syria, Algeria, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Mali.”

On the situation in Egypt, Zawahiri said al-Qaeda “welcomes any jihad activities against the Zionists and against the (Egyptian) army that is allied with the United States and defends (the Zionists’) border.”

Shortly after the audio recording was posted, Fatah officials attacked Zawahiri, saying he “serves the Zionist plot to tear the Palestinian people apart during this sensitive time, when Abbas if facing threats and pressures to give in to American and Israeli demands.”

Fatah spokesman Ahmad Assaf added that Zawahiri’s statements “confirm the level of his and his organization’s involvement in the Zionist project. Since when has this hypocrite and his gang been interested in the Palestinian issue and the Palestinian people? They see the whole world an open arena for their activities, but we didn’t see even one activity against the Israeli occupation.”

Medicaid Paid $12M For Illinois Dead

They are still on the voter registrations roles and voting.

Via Town Hall

The Illinois Medicaid program paid an estimated $12 million for medical services for people listed as deceased in other state records, according to an internal state government memo.

The memo dated Friday, which The Associated Press obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, says the state auditor compared clients enrolled in the Medicaid database last June with state death records dating back to 1970. Auditors identified overpayments for services to roughly 2,900 people after the date of their deaths.

The heads of the departments of Healthcare and Family Services and Human Services, the two state agencies involved with Medicaid payments, outline steps to fix the problem in the memo to their senior staffs.

The memo states that more than $7 million has been recovered and the rest is expected to be recouped by year’s end.

Sen. Dale Righter, a Republican from Mattoon and the Senate GOP’s point person on Medicaid reform, said the finding was further evidence that Democrats’ arguments that they have done all they can to clean up the Medicaid rolls is “empty rhetoric.”

“It’s disappointing and somewhat enraging for taxpayers, but it’s not surprising,” Righter said. “I wish this administration would spend more time trying to solve the problems rather than trying to convince taxpayers that they’ve already solved them.”

Gov. Pat Quinn’s office didn’t immediately respond to phone and email messages seeking comment.

Republicans have pressed for the state to use a private company to verify Medicaid eligibility. Maximus Health Services was hired to scrub state Medicaid rolls following 2012 Medicaid-reform legislation. Republicans have said the company was achieving a Medicaid eligibility-removal rate of 40 percent.

But the contract between the company and Gov. Pat Quinn ended last year, and the work was shifted to state employees, after the state’s largest public-employee union objected and an arbitrator ruled the contract should end.

Pope Francis Calls For End Of Attacks On Christians In Islamic Countries In Easter Message…

Pope Francis I

Amen.

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Marking Christianity’s most hopeful day, Pope Francis made an Easter Sunday plea for peace and dialogue in Ukraine and Syria, for an end to terrorist attacks against Christians in Nigeria and for more attention to the hungry and neediest close to home.

Well over 150,000 tourists — Romans and pilgrims, young and old — turned out for the Mass that Francis celebrated at an altar set up under a canopy on the steps of St. Peter’s Basilica.

So great were their numbers that they overflowed from sprawling St. Peter’s Square, which was bedecked with row after row of potted daffodils, sprays of blue hyacinths and bunches of white roses. Waving flags from the pope’s native Argentina as well as from Brazil, Mexico, Britain, Poland and many other countries, they also filled the broad boulevard leading from the square to the Tiber River.

Easter is the culmination of Holy Week and marks Christian belief that Jesus rose from the dead after his crucifixion.

Francis noted that this year the Catholic church’s celebration of Easter coincided with that of Orthodox churches, which have many followers in Ukraine.

Francis prayed that God would “enlighten and inspire the initiatives that promote peace in Ukraine, so that all those involved, with the support of the international community, will make every effort to prevent violence.”

Francis also prayed that all sides in Syria will be moved to “boldly negotiate the peace long awaited and long overdue.” Syria has been wracked by a three-year civil war that has cost 150,000 lives and forced millions to flee the country.

Christians make up about 5 percent of Syria’s population. In comments to mark Easter there, the Greek Orthodox patriarch vowed that Christians there “will not submit” to extremists who attack “our people and holy places.”

For What Does Our Republic Stand?

Girl Pledging Allegiance to the Flag

The Republic took a stand at the Bundy Ranch.

Via Allen B. West

The question for us as Americans — residents of a Constitutional Republic — is for what does this Republic stand?

This week we learned 61 percent of Americans believe our president lies anywhere from some to most of the time. That poll was revealed the day before President Obama took to the White House podium for an unannounced press conference asserting that we now have 8 million Americans signed up for Obamacare — whatever that means.

In an interview granted to CBS reporter Major Garrett — one of many interviews CBS always seems to get — President Obama stated there would be “consequences” for any further military action by Russia in the Ukraine. I seem to remember him saying there would be “consequences” for Syrian President Bashar al Assad for using chemical weapons and that he had to go – but then again that “red line” seemed to be bleached out.

Apparently the only real confirmed consequences emanating from the Obama administration are against his declared political enemies — and guys in cowboy hats. They receive the full brunt of the tactics of force, coercion, and intimidation from designated Obama government agencies, be it IRS or BLM.

And speaking of the IRS, seems they blew a deadline this week to have their computer systems upgraded, at a cost of somewhere near $11 million for the American taxpayer. What would happen to us simple working stiffs if we missed the April 15th deadline to pay our tribute to the government?

Mind you, I don’t have a problem with “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s” to a point, but doggone, I’m kinda getting tired of the wasteful spending and the expansion of the welfare nanny-state. I’ve grown disgusted by the use of my taxpayer dollars as largesse by which politicians — especially liberal progressives — bribe the public for their vote. If I hear the president mention “infrastructure repair” one more time, I will need to repair the infrastructure in my home when I destroy my television.
