White House: Even If GOP Shuts Government Obama Will Still Issue Amnesty Executive Order…

Obama plays by his own rules, which he seems to be making up as he goes along.

Via Breitbart:

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest warned Republicans on Wednesday that any threat by Congress of withholding funds would not change President Obama’s decision to issue an executive order to give illegal immigrants amnesty. [...]

Reporters asked Earnest if the threat of a government shutdown would change Obama’s decision to offer executive amnesty to as many as five million illegal immigrants.

“No. It won’t, because the president is determined to take the kinds of common sense steps that are required to address the worst problems of our broken immigration system,” Earnest replied.

Palestinians To Seek War Crimes Charges Against Netanyahu In The Hague If Israel Doesn’t Withdraw From West Bank…

Good luck with that.

Via JPost:

A senior Fatah official said on Thursday that the Palestinians will seek UN Security Council approval for a specific timetable mandating Israel’s withdrawal from the disputed territories which it captured in the Six-Day War.

The official, Nabil Shaath, told the Ma’an news agency that “if our demand is not accepted, Fatah will ask the International Criminal Court in The Hague to try Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, and other senior officials over the military offensive against the Gaza Strip.”

Obama EPA Chief: Fighting Global Warming Is About “Protecting Communities Of Color”…

Gina McCarthy

If global warming was real and poses that much of a danger, why would they not protect whites? Never mind, we already know the answer.

Via Daily Caller:

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.”

“Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.”

McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The agency says the rule will not only help fight global warming, but will also improve public health as coal-fired power plants are shuttered. McCarthy, however, put special emphasis on how the rule would reduce asthma rates, which affect African-American children.

“Asthma disproportionately affects African-American kids,” McCarthy added. “In just the first year these standards go into effect, we’ll avoid up to 100,000 asthma attacks and 2,100 heart attacks — and those numbers go up from there.”

Report: Second American Killed Fighting With ISIS In Syria Identified As Abdirahmaan Muhumed…

Shockingly, from Minneapolis.

Via Fox News:

A second American reportedly killed fighting with the Islamic State group in Syria has been identified as Abdirahmaan Muhumed, of Minneapolis, two sources told Fox News late Wednesday.

KMSP-TV in Minneapolis reported that Muhumed was killed in the same battle as Douglas McAuthur McCain, who grew up outside Minneapolis in the town of New Hope and most recently lived in San Diego. The State Department confirmed McCain’s death earlier this week, but spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Wednesday that the U.S. has no independent confirmation of the second American’s death. “We’re looking into it,” she said.

A source told Fox News that Muhumed’s family had been sent a photo of his body from Syria, but had not been formally notified by the State Department. Fox News was unable to contact the family.

A profile of Muhumed by Minnesota Public Radio this past June described him as a 29-year-old Somali-American who had been married more than once and was a father of nine children. MPR reported, citing the FBI, that at least 15 young men from the Twin Citites’ Somali-American community had traveled to Syria to join Islamic State, the militant group formerly known as ISIS that has captured wide swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq.

In a Facebook messages to an MPR reporter, Muhumed wrote “I give up this worldly life for Allah” and “Allah loves those who fight for his cause.” A picture posted on the social network showed Muhumed carrying a Koran in one hand and a rifle in the other.

Army General Forced Out, Forfeits Star For Mishandling Sex Assault Claim

Harrison

Sacrificed on the alter of political correctness. As a Brigade Commander, he was a Soldiers, Soldier.

Via Stars and Stripes

An Army two-star general in Japan who delayed investigation of a sexual assault complaint against an officer with whom he had a long history will be ejected from the service and lose a star in retirement, the Army announced Wednesday.

“Secretary of the Army John M. McHugh has directed that Maj. Gen. Michael T. Harrison, former commander of U.S. Army Japan, be retired as a brigadier general,” according to an Army statement. “Maj. Gen. Harrison was investigated and disciplined for failing to properly address a sexual assault allegation in his command.”

Federal law requires officers to retire at the last pay grade at which they served satisfactorily. The Army formally reprimanded Harrison for his handling of the allegation late last year and he submitted retirement papers this spring.

The military has been dealing with a growing scandal over sexual assault in the ranks for several years. Advocates for victims of military sexual assault told Stars and Stripes earlier this year that Harrison’s actions were more proof of the tendency of male commanders to shield favored subordinates accused of sexual wrongdoing.

Boko Haram Jihadists: “Allah Commands Us To Kill Without Pity”…

We noticed.

Via Examiner:

Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau declared an Islamic caliphate in the northeastern town of Gwoza in Borno State in northern Nigeria, as reported Tuesday at the Sydney Morning Herald.

Shekau also taunted France, Israel and the United States in a video released over the weekend, where he proclaimed, “[Y]ou are all pagans and we will kill you, even if you do not attack us we will kill you…Allah commands us to kill without pity.”

Last month, the brazen leader praised the Islamic State for it’s advances in Iraq and Syria. Reminiscent of videos released by ISIS, the Boko Haram video highlights men being executed as they lie face-down in the dirt.

Shekau was thrust onto the world stage after kidnapping hundreds of girls from a Government Secondary School, Chibok, in Borno State. The kidnappings sparked an international campaign to “Bring Back Our Girls.”

Al Qaeda’s Syrian Branch Al Nusra Front Teams Up With Obama’s “Moderate” Free Syrian Army To Seize Crossing With Israel

Islamic Front

I didn’t think there were any FSA units still in Syria, either way, I guarantee the Nusra Front fighters did the vast majority of the fighting.

BEIRUT (AP) – Syrian rebels, including fighters from an al-Qaida-linked group, seized control of a frontier crossing with Israel in the Golan Heights on Wednesday after heavy clashes with President Bashar Assad’s forces, activists and rebels said.

The capture of the post along Syria’s de facto border in the Golan held more symbolic value than strategic, but rebels said it would provide relief to nearby villages that were under siege by government troops.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said an array of rebel fighters, including from the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front and the Western-backed Free Syrian Army, took the crossing after heavy fighting that left at least 20 Syrian soldiers and an unknown number of rebels dead.

It said clashes also raged in the towns of Jaba, Tal Kroum and Rawadi in Quneitra province.

Gen. Ibrahim Jbawi, the spokesman for the Free Syrian Army’s southern front, confirmed the rebel gains, as did the Local Coordination Committees activist group.

In both cases justice was served.

Via KWTX

Jurors Wednesday in Angleton returned a not guilty verdict in the murder trial of David Barajas, Sr., who was charged in the shooting death of a suspected drunken driver whose car struck and killed Barajas’ two young sons.

Barajas cried when the verdict was read Wednesday.

He could have been sentenced to as much as life in prison had he been convicted.

Prosecutors alleged that Barajas killed Jose Banda, 20, in a fit of rage after Banda’s car plowed into Barajas and his sons while they were pushing a broken down pickup on a road near their hometown of Alvin.

The two boys, David, Jr., 12, and Caleb, 11, were killed.

Leading Academic Group To Allow Members To Choose From Six Different Genders…

Libs love this PC nonsense almost as much as how we love to laugh at them for it.

Via Daily Caller:

The American Sociological Association, the leading professional organization for American sociologists, is now granting its members much greater leeway in how to define their gender identities.

Previously, the ASA’s membership surveys only allowed three choices of gender: “male,” “female” and “prefer not to answer.”

Now, as reported at Inside Higher Ed, members will have no fewer than seven options for their gender choice, with the added ability to select “all that apply.” The added options include “transgender male/transgender man,” “transgender female/transgender woman,” “genderqueer/gender non-conforming,” or another “preferred identity” of their choice not explicitly named.

“Genderqueer” is defined by the Gender Equity Resource Center at the University of California-Berkeley as “A person whose gender identity is neither man nor woman, is between or beyond genders, or is some combination of genders.”

Spanish Imam Asks Allah To Kill Every Single Jew…

Religion of Peace™

Via Times of Israel:

A Spanish Imam has been documented in an anti-Semitic rant in which he called the Jewish people treacherous, war-mongering killers and prayed for God to “destroy the plundering Jews… do not spare a single one of them.”

In a Friday sermon posted to the internet this week and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, Sheik Saleheoldine al-Moussaoui of the municipality of Azuqueca De Henares, near Madrid, says: “What is being done to the Muslims in Palestine, in Gaza, as well as in the other Muslim countries — we would have been surprised if it were done by anyone other than the Jews.”

“The Jews are by nature treacherous and war-mongering,” he tells followers. “The Jews and the Zionists have treachery and killing as their way of life. They are a people of enmity and jealousy, the masters of treachery and betrayal.” […]

“Oh Allah, destroy the plundering Jews,” he says. “Oh Allah, the Most Merciful, count them one by one, and do not spare a single one of them.”
