White House: Republicans Opposed To Obama Acting Childish…

Via The Hill:

The White House on Friday chided Republicans for warning that President Obama’s action on immigration could disrupt work on other issues, with a top aide likening the threats to the “third-grade equivalent of taking your ball and going home.”

“There’s no reason you should not be doing those things you think are in the best interest of the country where there’s bipartisan agreement because you disagree with this,” senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast.

“The equivalent would be if the president said, ‘If you pass legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act that will poison the well and I refuse to work with you on anything else.’ That’s an illogical approach.”

Report: Islamic State Buying All The Gold, Silver, Copper They Can Get Their Hands On For New Currency…

One of the most frightening aspects of the Islamic State is that they are building an actual state.

IRBIL, IRAQ — The Islamic State is accumulating gold, silver and copper in markets throughout northern and western Iraq, dealers report, in an apparent effort to stockpile enough precious metal to follow through on a pledge to mint its own currency.

On Nov. 11, the Islamic State’s Beit al Mal, an ancient Islamic term akin to “Department of Treasury,” announced that the group would reintroduce the dinar currency of the Umayyad Caliphate, which ruled an empire that stretched from modern Iran to Spain for much of the seventh and eighth centuries. The announcement – which included images of three types of coins in gold, copper and silver – drew skepticism from experts, who doubted that the Islamic State could arrange a system to mint and issue a modern currency.

But interviews with dealers in precious metals indicate that the Islamic State has begun the complex process of issuing the currency, a reminder that as the best-financed non-state actor in history – with a revenue stream from oil sales and aggressive taxation – it’s been able to install bureaucratic controls over the large swath of territory it’s claimed in Iraq and Syria.

Hajj Samir, a gold trader in the city of Fallujah who asked that his full name not be used for security reasons, said that since the announcement, foreign jihadists had been buying all of the gold and silver in the city’s markets.

He said he alone had sold more than 15 pounds of gold to foreigners who were members of the Islamic State. “They said it was for gifts for their wives, but now I know why, and all the traders say the same thing,” he said. “We’ve been making trips to Baghdad to get more, and they buy all of it.

Ferguson Protesters Outside Police Department Chant: “What Do We Want? Darren Wilson! How Do We Want Him? Dead!”…

Death threats, how progressive.

Via NRO:

Protesters in Ferguson, Mo., have taken to the streets and chosen not to wait for a grand jury’s decision before clashing with police once again. A grand jury is expected to decide whether to indict police officer Darren Wilson, who is accused of shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown, in the coming days. But protesters made their voices heard outside the Ferguson Police Department on Thursday night shouting, “What do we want? Darren Wilson! How do we want him? Dead!”

Protesters gathered on South Florissant Road outside the police department and halted traffic. ​Police responded by coming out of the station and forming a line behind the barricade protecting the department.

Moonbat Professor Wears Dick Cheney Mask To Class, Pretends To Shoot Students…

Bush Derangement Syndrome still alive and kicking.

Via Campus Reform:

A political science professor dressed up as former-Vice President Dick Cheney (R) and pretended to shoot around the classroom.

In a video and photos obtained by Campus Reform, John Gruhl, a professor of political science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) donned an orange vest and Cheney mask and then pretended to shoot around his classroom.

Some students in the classroom can be heard laughing at Gruhl’s antics.

“When Professor Gruhl walked in to the class on Halloween dressed as Dick Cheney, I felt as though he had overstepped his boundaries as an educator,” Matt Server, a freshman political science major told Campus Reform. “By dressing up, and in my eyes, mocking the former vice president, I felt that Professor Gruhl had gone to another level in his attacks on Vice President Cheney. His costume, and subsequent remarks, were inappropriate for an institute of higher education.”

Obama Cites “Scripture” As Reason He’s Meeting With Illegal Immigrant In Las Vegas…

If this were a Republican president the left would be screaming “religious fanatic!”

Via CNS News:

President Barack Obama said in a primetime address to the nation last night that he will travel to Las Vegas today and meet with an illegal alien whom he intends, unilaterally, to allow to stay in the United States in violation of the nation’s immigration laws.

In explaining why he thinks this is the right thing to do, Obama cited an unspecified passage of “Scripture.”

“Tomorrow, I’ll travel to Las Vegas and meet with some of these students, including a young woman named Astrid Silva,” said Obama.” [...]

“Are we a nation that kicks out a striving, hopeful immigrant like Astrid, or are we a nation that finds a way to welcome her in?” said Obama. “Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger–we were strangers once, too.”

Islamic State Imposes Education Tax On All Students In Mosul…

Libs and ISIS have something in common, they both love taxes.

Via NBC News:

ISIS has announced monthly taxes on students attending schools and colleges in Iraq’s second-largest city, parents and a security official said Wednesday. Iraqi government schools have been state-funded since 1974. But parents in Mosul — which ISIS militants now control — have been told they must pay 25,000 Iraqi dinars (about $21) for every child attending kindergarten, 50,000 dinars ($42) for high-school students and 75,000 dinars ($62.50) for college undergraduates, a mother of three and another father-of-three told NBC News. A senior Iraqi security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, also confirmed the taxes had been introduced. “ISIS elements are trying to get funds from different sources in order to run the territories they took over,” the official said.

“This is too much for me,” the mother of three told NBC News by phone. “We are living under very bad financial conditions here in Mosul.” The woman, whose name has been withheld for her own safety, added: “ISIS elements are using different kinds of pressure against us…My husband will have to work more hours to earn this money.”

US-Backed Palestinian Authority Incited Violence Against Rabbis Week Before Jerusalem Synagogue Attack…

And yet Obama fully supports the PA over our longtime ally, Israel.

Via PMW:

A week before the brutal murders of four rabbis during prayer and a policeman in a Jerusalem synagogue, the official Palestinian Authority daily published an op-ed that demonized Israel and Jews. It specifically singled out “the rabbis of the secret societies” as the ones giving the instructions to Israel to “set the foundations for an eternal hegemony”:

“The danger posed by Israel remains the greatest and most significant of all, and the first [threat] we must come out against. For the Zionist settler ideology does not seek temporary influence or gains, and does not strive to exploit and exhaust resources, but rather sets the foundations for an eternal hegemony based on the instructions of the ‘rabbis’ of the secret societies. And all this is in order to take revenge on history and their minority and false persecution complex.” [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 12, 2014]

Louisiana Senate Runoff Update: Cassidy 56%, Landrieu 41%…

Adios, Mary.

Via Rasmussen:

Rasmussen Reports’ first survey of the Louisiana Senate runoff shows Republican challenger Bill Cassidy comfortably on his way to joining the new GOP Senate majority.

Cassidy posts a 15-point lead – 56% to 41%- over incumbent Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu among Likely Louisiana Voters in our latest statewide telephone survey. Just three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Landrieu edged Cassidy, a U.S. congressman, 42% to 41% on Election Day earlier this month, with eight candidates officially in the race. But under Louisiana’s so-called “jungle primary” rules, the contest will now be decided by a December 6 runoff because no candidate cleared the 50% mark.

Islamic State Spreads To Libya, ISIS Fighters Now In Complete Control Of Derna…

More good news.

(CNN) — The black flag of ISIS flies over government buildings. Police cars carry the group’s insignia. The local football stadium is used for public executions. A town in Syria or Iraq? No. A city on the coast of the Mediterranean, in Libya.

Fighters loyal to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are now in complete control of the city of Derna, population of about 100,000, not far from the Egyptian border and just about 200 miles from the southern shores of the European Union.

The fighters are taking advantage of political chaos to rapidly expand their presence westwards along the coast, Libyan sources tell CNN.

The sources say the Derna branch of ISIS counts 800 fighters and operates half a dozen camps on the outskirts of the town, as well as larger facilities in the nearby Green Mountains, where fighters from across North Africa are being trained.

It has been bolstered by the return to Libya from Syria and Iraq of up to 300 Libyan jihadists who were part of ISIS’ al Battar Brigade — deployed at first in Deir Ezzor in Syria and then Mosul in Iraq. These fighters supported the Shura Council for the Youth of Islam in Derna, a pro-ISIS faction.

The council had been competing for superiority with another militant group, the Abu Salem Brigade, some of whose fighters’ loyalties lay with al Qaeda, according to Noman Benotman, a former Libyan jihadist now involved in counter-terrorism for the Quilliam Foundation.

Al Qaeda’s top envoy in Libya, Abdulbasit Azuz, left Derna after U.S. Special Forces captured Ahmed Abu Khatallah, an alleged ringleader of the Benghazi attacks in June. Azuz is now believed to be in Syria, Benotman told CNN.

MSNBC: Bill Nye “The Science Guy” Blames Buffalo Blizzard On Global Warming…

Naturally.

Via Daily Caller:

Who didn’t see this one coming? MSNBC’s “The Cycle” brought in scientist mechanical engineer Bill Nye to explain why the blizzard hitting the city of Buffalo was caused by global warming.

“Buffalo sees about 8 feet of snow a year, but they’ve already seen most of that and winter has not officially started yet,” said host Touré Neblett, “What’s the science behind all this?”

Nye was remarkably honest in initially admitting, “Well, you can’t tie, especially cold weather events are difficult to tie to climate change.”

…Before he tied it to climate change anyways. “But it’s very reasonable that it’s climate change. Everybody, when Lake Erie’s warmer, more water evaporates into the air and it snows more. I don’t make the rules, people.”
