ISIS Stones Iraqi Couple To Death For Having Sex Outside Marriage In Mosul…

More savagery.

Via Daily Mail:

Gruesome new images have emerged showing Islamic State militants stoning a man a woman to death in Iraq after they were accused of having sex without being married.

Taken in the ISIS-stronghold of Mosul in Nineveh province, the shocking images show a large, bloodthirsty crowd gathered to watch the jihadis murder the defenceless couple.

Young boys clamber onto their father’s shoulders to get a better view of the man and woman being charged with ‘fornication’, before the familiar white-bearded face of ISIS’ elderly Mosul-based executioner-in-chief Abu Ansar al-Ansari orders their stoning to death.

The sickening images begin by showing a large crowd gathered in a rain-drenched square in central Mosul.

With heavily armed militants taking up positions on ledges overlooking the crowd, the young men and boys jostle to ensure they get the best view of the murder

In the background of the image, women wearing black niqabs are seen gathered together.

An Islamic State militant with a yellow scarf covering his face is then seen using a microphone and PA system to read out the charge of ‘fornication’ against the couple, suggesting they have been accused of having sex without being married, not of committing adultery.

Mayor Of Seattle Prohibits City Employees From Traveling To Indiana Over Religious Rights Law…

Via ABC News:

The mayor of Seattle today prohibited municipal employees from traveling to Indiana on city funds, as the backlash spread against the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray’s decision comes in response to the law signed Thursday by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence that allows businesses to refuse service to gays and lesbians for religious reasons.

Murray said Indiana’s new law “doesn’t reflect the values” of Seattle.

“Seattle has been a leader in the fight to protect civil rights and ensure equality for all people — no matter who you are, or who you love,” Murray said today in a statement.

“This is why I am ordering that none of our taxpayer dollars should go toward supporting this discriminatory law,” Murray’s statement continued.

Boko Haram Kills 25 During Attack On Village, Beheads Victims With CHAINSAWS…

Incomprehensible evil.

(RT) – Militants from extremist group Boko Haram attacked several Nigerian towns, torching houses and fatally shooting those who fled before reportedly beheading some of the bodies with chainsaws. The string of terror attacks comes amid the presidential vote.

At least 25 people were killed and more than 30 injured in the village of Buratai in Borno state, local officials confirmed.

Surviving witnesses described gruesome scenes of murder, saying that not only did the extremists set homes on fire and shoot those trying to escape, but also decapitated the bodies.

Local politician Ibrahim Adamu, who fled the scene, told CNN that Boko Haram “slaughtered their victims like rams and decapitated them,” adding that “they burned a large part of the village and we are afraid some residents were burnt in the homes because most people had gone to bed when the gunmen struck.”

OFA: Obama’s Vision “Is A Movement Of Millions” Of Community Organizers

President Obama is an inspiration to so many grassroots organizers across the country.

That’s why I think this is one of the most genuinely awesome things we do — a grassroots contest to meet the President in person at the OFA Organizing Summit next month.

And it’s fitting that it’s all about us as organizers. It bears repeating — this is a movement of millions. But every one of us has a story to tell about how we got inspired to do the work we do. It’s so powerful to hear how we were all moved to be part of it.

Those stories are what drive us — they give us the strength to fight back against the big-money lobbyists and powerful special interests.

That’s what this contest is all about: giving folks the chance to tell their stories.

Add your name to be automatically entered for the chance to meet President Obama — and the flight and hotel for you and a guest are on us.

Not a bad deal.

Go get your name in the hat:

Liberals are already attacking Ted Cruz’s credentials, suggesting he’s no more qualified to run than Obama, whom conservatives have long mocked for his resume as a “community organizer.” On CNN’s State of the Union, Cruz shot these comparisons down.

“I want to read to you a description,” began host Dana Bash. “A Harvard law graduate, 40-something years old, two young daughters, in the Senate for only two years, who thinks he can be president. I could be describing you; I could be describing Barack Obama.”

“Dana, I think there are really two sharp distinctions between where I am today and where Barack Obama was when he launched his campaign,” said Cruz. “Number one, in his time in the Senate, he had basically been a backbencher, he had not been leading on issues of any significance. In my time in the Senate you can accuse me of being a lot of things, but a backbencher is not one of them.”

“But the big criticism of President Obama, especially as the years went on, he didn’t have any experience in an executive function, he didn’t run any organization, and the same can be said about you,” Bash pressed.

“Well, unlike Barack Obama, I was not a community organizer before I was elected to the Senate,” Cruz replied. “I spent five and a half years as the Solicitor General of Texas, the chief lawyer for the state Texas in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Patriotic Till The End: Colorado Springs Veteran, 87, Dies Building Flagpole…

richard french

Another member of the Greatest Generation reports for his final roll call.

Via Stars and Stripes

Age was no barrier for Richard “Dick” French, who, at 87, set out to build a 20-foot flagpole in the yard of his Colorado Springs home to show off his immense patriotism.

For months, he talked up the project to family members and couldn’t wait for the weather to warm up so he could get started. On Easter, he planned to hold a ceremony for his family and raise a large American flag and flags for each of the military branches for which he served as a photographer in the 1940s.

He got to work Saturday, but the project was left unfinished when he suffered what was called a sudden “cardiac event” and died.

“It was exactly the way he wanted to go,” said his granddaughter, Laurel Barrett, 27. “It was a shock. My mom and I were the ones who found him.”

Barrett said French was a lively man with a great sense of humor. He was the kind of guy who would put a plow on his riding lawnmower so he could clear the driveways for the “old ladies” nearby who were younger than he.

“He had a joke for every occasion,” said his daughter and Laurel’s mother, Jean Barrett, 58.

He was stubborn, too. At 86 years old, he refused to let anyone help him re-tile his garage roof, Laurel Barrett said. He made a makeshift elevator to get supplies up to the roof, and did the project himself.[…]

A few years ago, French started throwing “flag parties,” basically his version of the Fourth of July – but held whenever he felt like it to share his love for his country with the youngest generations of his family.

“He would pass out flags and tell military stories and make everybody pose with the flag and take pictures,” Laurel Barrett said.

Pictures were involved with pretty much everything he did throughout his life, she added.

French was born in El Paso, Texas, on Aug. 23, 1927. He spent 1944 to 1947 in the military at Fort Lewis, Wash., where he was a photographer for the Coast Guard, Army and Merchant Marines, Jean Barrett said. He took pictures of presidents and showed one to Cunningham of President Dwight D. Eisenhower visiting what was then Camp Carson.[…]

French grew increasingly patriotic as he aged, his daughter said.

“He didn’t like the way the country was being run now and it really upset him,” she said. “The madder he got, the more patriotic he got, and he kept saying we need to go back to the values we used to have. … He just wanted people to remember it was important to be patriotic.”

French had four daughters: Linda Shields, Janet Cooper, Jean Barrett and the late Mary French. He is survived by eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. His wife, Carolyn, whom he met at the age of 15, died in 2013.

When French’s family holds a celebration of life ceremony later in April, there will be a patriotic theme, and everyone will wear flag lapel pins, Jean Barrett said.

The flagpole project likely won’t be finished because French will be buried with the flags he planned to raise.

But one thing is certain: wherever she is, Laurel Barrett will always fly an American flag in her grandfather’s honor.

Hillary Supporter Makes Not-So-Veiled Threat Against O’Malley If He Dares Challenge Hillary

Via Daily Caller:

A former governor on ABC’s “This Week” made a not-so-veiled threat Sunday to former Democratic Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley that he could lose a cabinet position in Hillary Clinton’s administration by running against her.

Former Democratic Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who also serves as a Senior Advisor to Ready for Hillary PAC said, “She is comfortable enough to be able to withstand a primary.”

Granholm added, “And Martin O’Malley, he’s a very nice guy, and I was thinking he might make a nice member of a President Clinton administration, so he better watch it.”

“I think he and anybody else, she would welcome into the mix,” Granholm continued. “That would be healthy. But I also think ultimately, she’ll be the next president.”

Shocker! Obama Didn’t Vote Present, He Voted For Illinois Religious Freedom Reformation Act In 1998…

IL RFRA

Votes in the past don’t matter, that was a long time ago.

Via Washington Times

White House spokesman Josh Earnest took aim Sunday at Indiana’s newly signed religious-freedom law, saying it appears to “legitimize discrimination,” even as critics said that President Obama voted in favor of a similar law as an Illinois state senator.

“When you have a law like this one in Indiana that seems to legitimize discrimination, it’s important for everybody to stand up and speak out,” said Mr. Earnest on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

Just before Mr. Earnest made his comments, however, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence defended the law in an interview on the same show, noting that the federal government and 19 other states previously passed a Religious Freedom Reformation Act, including Illinois.

After President Bill Clinton signed the federal Religious Freedom Reformation Act (RFRA) in 1993, “some 19 states followed that, and after last year’s Hobby Lobby case, Indiana properly brought the same version that then-state Sen. Barack Obama voted for in Illinois,” Mr. Pence said.

Indiana Senate Republicans made the same point in a Thursday press release: “The bipartisan respect for religious freedom has also carried over to the votes for most state-level RFRAs. For example, when President Obama was an Illinois State Senator in 1998, he voted for Illinois’ RFRA.”

Mr. Obama served as an Illinois state senator from 1997 to 2004. The Illinois RFRA took effect in July 1998.

Mr. Earnest dismissed the argument: “If you have to go back two decades to try to justify something that you’re doing today, it may raise some questions about the wisdom of what you’re doing.”

Clinton Lackey Defends Hillary’s Email, Laughter Ensues From Meet the Press Panel…

Stuck on the spin cycle.

Neera Tanden, who’s president of the Center for American Progress, a think tank closely associated with the Clintons, did her best on Meet the Press today to defend Hillary Clinton’s scandalous handling of her e-mails, but her co-panelists, and even host Chuck Todd, weren’t having it. Tanden whipped out Clinton defenders’ favorite weapons: trying to tie concern over Clinton’s practices to Republican overreach on Benghazi and making some reference to “the scandal machine,” as if the e-mail issue were a ginned-up controversy rather than genuine bipartisan outrage over America’s top diplomat keeping official records however she likes.[…]

Chuck Todd, Joe Scarborough, and Kathleen Parker certainly didn’t buy it, repeatedly pushing back on Tanden, interrupting her to correct misleading claims, and at times just laughing at the case she laid out. Eventually, it got raucous enough that Todd cut off the segment with a reference to desert rodents and optical devices that was almost surely incomprehensible to 95 percent of Meet the Press’s audience.

Lindsey Graham On Being The Next McCain : ‘There’s A Pathway Forward For A Guy Like Me’

Lindsey, the RINO’s crowded the Republican primary so you could win, now you are doing the same for Jeb Bush.

Via The Des Moines Register

After his third venture into Iowa testing the waters for a presidential bid, South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham is convinced he sees an opening for himself in the 2016 race.

“At the end of the day, I think there’s a pathway forward for a guy like me,” Graham, a 12-year U.S. senator known for pushing for stronger national defense, told The Des Moines Register in an interview Saturday. “Whether I finish first or 10th, at least I had a chance here.”

Asked which GOP competitors he considers most formidable, Graham, 59, mentioned former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio — in that order.

“Jeb starts in a good spot,” Graham said. “He comes from a well-known family. People like the Bushes. I like the Bushes. He’s going to have a lot of money. Scott Walker is your neighbor here, and he has been a very successful governor. He’s a fighter. People like that. Marco is a very young, charismatic Republican, a Cuban-American. But the game that’s created in Iowa is an interesting game. It’s an antidote to big money. … A guy like me has a chance out here.[…]

On Friday night, about 60 people, including a small contingent of Iowa press, crowded into a banquet room at a Des Moines restaurant to meet Graham. He had dinner with former Iowa GOP Chairman Matt Strawn, his wife, Erin Strawn, and several state senators. On Saturday, he attended the Iowa National Guard Officers’ Association, meeting separately with top brass, then company grade officers, then enlisted members. He met with some well-known Linn County GOP activists privately, then did a meet-and-greet in the Iowa City area.

Obama Spends Palm Sunday Deep In Prayer….Nah, Golfing Again…At $843,508 Cost To You…

Screen Shot 2015-03-29 at 6.35.29 PM

And that number is just for the airfare…

Via Washington Examiner:

In its latest attempt to shut down media coverage, the White House Saturday dismissed reporters to their Florida hotel by declaring a news “lid” even though President Obama was just beginning his golf game — but the press pool voted to stay.

After a two hour flight, Obama motorcaded to the posh Floridian National Golf Club in Palm City to play a round and also stay.

At that point, the pool reporter, Byron Tau of the Wall Street Journal, wrote in his report to other correspondents, “The White House has called a lid. Pool does not anticipate news or POTUS sightings until tomorrow’s departure of Air Force One.”

With a lid, the reporters in the “travel pool” would typically return to their hotel. But with Obama still in public golfing, though at a very exclusive club, something could happen. So the pool voted to stay in the area just in case.

“However, the pool will hold on the grounds of the golf course until the early evening. This was the a result of a democratic vote by the pool to hold as close as possible to POTUS. (The other option was a hotel about 15 miles away.) Despite the lid, pool voted to stay on site.

“Pool is holding in a maintenance shed,” Tau reported.

Obama’s golf pools are regularly frustrated by never even seeing him. Some previous presidents, notably George H.W. Bush, would allow reporters to watch his play on one or two greens. Sometimes he answered questions.

Obama has golfed at the club before, with Tiger Woods.

The trip will cost taxpayers $843,508 in airfare alone.

Via Al Arabiya

The Arab League on Sunday called for the establishment of a voluntary, unified military force that member states can turn to when facing security challenges.

The statement, issued in the Egyptian resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh, calls for establishing a voluntary Arab military force that can intervene to counter challenges that threaten the safety and security of any member, based on a specific request from that state.

Iraq, one of the members of the Arab League, voiced reservations to the proposed military force.

The statement also urged Houthis to “immediately withdraw from Sanaa, government institutions, and give their weapons to the legitimate authorities,” citing its support for the Saudi-led ‘Operation Decisive Storm’ in Yemen.

On Saturday, the Saudi-led coalition continued for a third day a bombing campaign against the Houthi militias who are marching to the southern city of Aden after seizing the capital Sanaa last year.

According to the statement, Arab leaders at the summit in Egypt also backed Yemeni President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi’s request to hold a conference in Saudi Arabia under the auspices of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Iraq rejected military intervention in any country and called for dialogue as the best solution. Lebanon stressed that any decision taken should prioritize Arab consensus.

The Arab states also expressed their political and financial support to the legitimate government in Libya, and urged for the backing of the national army, according to the draft statement.

They called on the United Nations Security Council to hastily lift an arms embargo on the internationally recognized Libyan government, which they considered as legitimate.

The statement also stressed support for the Libyan government in order for it to control its borders with neighboring countries, a decision that Qatar voiced reservations.

Obama Allies, Including David Axelrod Firm, Have Been Working To Elect Sharia-Favoring Presidential Candidate In Nigeria

Screen Shot 2015-03-29 at 4.50.07 PM

The hand of the slimy David Axelrod is involved, so you know to vote for anyone who he is against. The election is today, so we shall know soon whether they fail here as spectacularly as they did in Israel…

Via The Commentator:

On Saturday, Nigerians will go to the polls to choose their president. The race pits an incumbent with an imperfect record against a former military dictator who has flirted with Islamism.

As with the recent election in Israel, alumni of Obama are aiding the challenger — and not because he would make the region safer.

The decision Nigerians will make this weekend matters greatly, both for themselves and the West. Nigeria has Africa’s largest economy, with a gross domestic product of about $500 billion. It is a major energy producer and exporter, but also a political and cultural bellwether: the nation of 177 million is divided almost equally between Christians and Muslims.

Nigeria’s problems are serious, ranging from endemic corruption to a spiraling jihadist insurgency. The economy is growing but the unemployment rate exceeds 20 percent. Transparency International, which ranks nations by the absence of corruption, places Nigeria at an undesirable 136th out of 175.

Far more concerning, Boko Haram, the foremost jihadist group in Nigeria, has waged a bloody Islamist insurgency. This month, the group’s leader pledged allegiance to ISIS, whose own reach now includes parts of North Africa.

The challenger in Saturday’s election, Muhammadu Buhari, blames incumbent president Goodluck Jonathan for these problems. Buhari recently remarked, “if Nigeria does not kill corruption, corruption will kill Nigeria.”

That sounds appealing: corruption repels foreign capital and creates misery for those without privilege. But Buhari’s medicine may be worse than the disease.

His prescriptions range from the facile, like passing a whistleblower law, to the dangerous, like expanding the use of sharia — Islamic law that is enacted and enforced by clerics rather than democratic institutions.
