TSA Bows To Lib Pressure, Agrees To Stop Touching Black Women’s Hair In Security Checks…

Elderly nuns, not so lucky.

Via The Hill:

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has agreed to stop patting down hair styles that are popular among African-American women after complaints were raised by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The ACLU’s Northern California office had filed a complaint on behalf of a woman who complained her hair was unfairly searched by TSA officials at airports in Los Angeles and Minneapolis, Minn. in 2013.

TSA officials said Wednesday that have reached “an informal agreement with the ACLU to enhance officer training.”

Racial profiling is not tolerated by TSA,” the agency said in a statement that was provided to The Hill. “Not only is racial profiling prohibited under DHS and agency policy, but it is also an ineffective security tactic.”

O’Malley: Global Warming Is The Most Important “Natural Threat” Facing The U.S…

Gov. O'Malley

Dumb, but it should be noted he said “natural” and not “man-made”…

Via Daily Caller:

Former Maryland governor and presidential hopeful Martin O’Malley told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos Sunday global warming is the most important “natural threat” facing the U.S.

Calling global warming a “natural threat” distinguishes it from “man-made” threats like a nuclear Iran and Islamic extremism.

“The greatest danger that we face right now on a consistent basis in terms of manmade threats is — is — nuclear Iran and related to that, extremist violence,” O’Malley told Stephanopoulos. “I don’t think you can separate the two. I think they go together.”

“In terms of natural threats, clearly, it’s climate change. And we have to confront — we have to confront manmade and natural threats,” said O’Malley, a Democrat, clearly distinguishing global warming from man-made threats.

O’Malley’s comments are a huge departure from President Barack Obama and his cabinet, who not only call global warming a national security but also say it’s caused by human activity. Obama told Congress that “the Pentagon says that climate change poses immediate risks to our national security. We should act like it.”

Idiotic Dem Nebraska State Sen. Stands By Statements He’d Shoot A Cop If He Weren’t Nonviolent: “I Meant What I Said”…

erniechambers

“I meant what I said, and I said what I meant.” Yeah, sounds like a nonviolent person alright…

Via CNS News:

Nebraska state Sen. Ernie Chambers refused to apologize last week for controversial comments he made comparing the police to ISIS and suggesting he would shoot a cop if he had a gun and weren’t nonviolent.

“I meant what I said, and I said what I meant,” Chambers said in reaction to calls for him to apologize or resign.

During a legislative hearing on a bill allowing guns in bars (LB 635) on March 20, Chambers said, “My ISIS is the police.”

“I would tell young people if you tell somebody to go across the world to fight for ISIS, they can put you in jail if you just talk about it. If you want to fight injustice, don’t– you don’t have to go around the world to find the ISIS mentality,” he said.

“Your ISIS is in America, and you’re likely to die over there one way or the other. So if you’re gonna die, die making your home safe. My home is not threatened by ISIS. Mine is threatened by the police. The police are licensed to kill us – children, old people,” Chambers added.

“If I were going to do something – but I’m not a man of violence – I wouldn’t go to Syria. I wouldn’t go to Iraq. I wouldn’t go to Afghanistan. I wouldn’t go to Yemen. I wouldn’t go to Tunisia. I wouldn’t go to Lebanon. I wouldn’t go to Jordan. I would do it right here,” he said.

“Nobody from ISIS ever terrorized us as a people as the police do daily, and they get away with it, and they’ve been given the license now,” Chambers said.

Muslim NBA Star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Slams Indiana Religious Freedom Law As “Anti-American”, Compares It To . . . Sharia Law

CAIR must be so confused.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Indiana Is on the Wrong Side of History – TIME

The state took a step toward establishing an American version of Sharia law

In the 1987 movie Moonstruck, Nicolas Cage plays a contentious man who, when confronted with his unreasonable and unjust behavior, shouts in defense, “I ain’t no freakin’ monument to justice!” That line echoes in my head when I think about Indiana’s hypocritical and anti-American Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). At its core, rather than being a monument to justice, RFRA is a step toward establishing an American version of Shari’a law.

I know that sounds hyperbolic, in the tradition of, “If Obama is re-elected, the terrorists have won” or “If the pipeline isn’t approved, you’re Nazis because Hitler once nixed a pipeline.” However, in this case, the comparison is not so crazy. Shari’a law, when imposed on a population by force, makes a single religion’s teachings (often a single sect of that religion’s teachings) the law of the land. The mission is to force everyone to follow the teachings lest they be punished. Although RFRA supporters aren’t physically assaulting people, they certainly are attempting to punish those who don’t follow their own very specific interpretation of God’s teachings.

Moonbat Gov. Brown Orders Mandatory Water Restrictions In California; First Time In History…

Jerry Brown

“It’s a different world,” he said. Spoken like a true Commie…

Via LA Times:

Gov. Jerry Brown, standing on a patch of brown grass in the Sierra Nevada that is usually covered with several feet of snow at this time of year, on Wednesday announced the first mandatory water restrictions in California history.

“It’s a different world,” he said. “We have to act differently.”

Brown was on hand Wednesday as state officials took stock of historically abysmal levels of snowpack in the Sierra Nevada amid the state’s grinding drought.

Brown ordered the California Water Resources Control Board to implement mandatory restrictions to reduce water usage by 25%. The water savings are expected to amount to 1.5 million acre-feet of water over the next nine months.

Other elements of Brown’s order would:

–Require golf courses, cemeteries and other large landscaped spaces to reduce water consumption.

–Replace 50 million square feet of lawn statewide with drought-tolerant landscaping as part of a partnership with local governments.

–Create a statewide rebate program to replace old appliances with more water- and energy-efficient ones.

–Require new homes to have water-efficient drip irrigation if developers want to use potable water for landscaping.

–Ban the watering of ornamental grass on public street medians.

–Call on water agencies to implement new pricing models that discourage excessive water use.

–Require agricultural to report more water usage information to the state so that regulators can better find waste and improper activities.

–Create a mechanism to enforce requirements that water districts report usage numbers to the state.

Hoax? Duke Students Claim They Found Noose Hanging From Tree, School Offers Counseling To Students…

83318-DukeUniversity3-728x485

I have no idea if this is a hoax or legit, but over the past few years these types of  incidents have been hoaxes more often than not. The fact that the newly formed “Duke People of Color Caucus” was quick to pounce on the news doesn’t help the credibility of this story.

Via Guardian:

Duke University students found a noose hanging from a tree along the school’s main thoroughfare early on Wednesday morning, rattling the campus less than two weeks after a black student was allegedly taunted by white students singing a racist chant.

Police removed the noose, made of yellow string, from a tree in Bryan Center Plaza around 2.45am. A spokesman for the department said police were still gathering information on the case.

Larry Moneta, vice-president for student affairs, emailed students hours later, writing: “I can’t begin to describe the disgust and anger I felt, and still feel.

“To whomever committed this hateful and stupid act, I just want to say that if your intent was to create fear, it will have the opposite effect,” he wrote.

Moneta said campus services would be available for all students, and “if we’re able to identify [anyone] responsible for committing this act of intimidation, they will be held fully accountable.”

The Duke People of Color Caucus, an anonymous group recently formed to address racism at the school, posted a statement urging black people to take care: “This campus is not a safe space, and has proven beyond any doubt that it is a hostile environment for any and all black people.”

Islamic State On Assad’s Doorstep After Seizing Large Swaths Of Palestinian Refugee Camp In Damascus…

2721629600000578-3021488-image-a-69_1427903670046

ISIS changing their strategy and shifting their focus back to Assad in Syria and away from US-backed forces in Iraq? Makes sense.

Via Daily Mail:

Islamic State militants infiltrated a Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus today, marking the terrorist group’s deepest foray the Syrian capital and seat of President Bashar Assad’s power.

ISIS entered the Yarmouk camp as Jordan closed its only functioning border crossing with the country following heavy clashes on the Syrian side between rebels and government forces.

The militants, who already control large swaths of territory in northern Syria, reportedly entered the camp from the nearby Hajar Aswad neighborhood in southern Damascus in a coordinated attack with their rivals in the Al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front.

According to the the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, ISIS managed to take control of large parts of the Yarmouk camp following clashes with a Palestinian group.

If ISIS manage to gain full control of Yarmouk, the jihadis can potentially use the camp as a base from which to threaten the heart of the capital as possibly challenge Assad himself.

The Palestinian-run refugee camp has been under government siege for nearly two years.

In his announcement Wednesday that he wouldn’t sign a “religious freedom” bill that had reached his desk, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) offered a personal example of the contentiousness of the issue.

“My son Seth signed the petition asking me to veto the bill,” he said.

Given Hutchinson’s son’s politics, that’s not a big surprise. Seth Hutchinson is an organizer with the Texas State Employees Union and has been “a progressive since college days,” according to this Arkansas Times story.

Hollywood Moonbat And Top Obama Bundler Harvey Weinstein Sexually Abuses Young Model – Spokesman Doesn’t Deny Leading Smear Campaign After She Went To Cops…

Surprisingly, Weinstein has publicly defended child-rapist Roman Polanski.

HarveyWeinstein

His spokesman today refused to deny he was behind a smear campaign leaked to the press to try and discredit the woman.

Via NY Daily News

Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is accused of groping a 22-year-old Italian model he met at the red-carpet premiere of his Radio City “New York Spring Spectacular.”

The model told cops that the Oscar-winning Hollywood producer sexually abused her after coaxing her to his Manhattan office on the pretext of talking business, sources told the Daily News.

The woman informed cops that Weinstein, a married 63-year-old father of five, groped her breasts and reached up her skirt around 6 p.m. Friday in his third-floor office at the Tribeca Film Center on Greenwich St., sources said.

“He asked if her breasts were real before touching them,” a police source said. “She asked him to stop, and he put his hand up her skirt. He asked for a kiss; she responded ‘No.’”

Once the model left Weinstein’s office, she called a friend and described what happened, another police source said. The friend took her to the 9th Precinct stationhouse in the East Village, and officers there drove her to the 1st Precinct station in Tribeca to report the incident.

“She really was very upset,” said a third police source.

Weinstein has been questioned by police. Sex-crime detectives for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. were expected to meet with the woman Monday to determine whether to file charges.[…]

NYPD Special Victims Squad detectives interviewed Weinstein on Saturday when he voluntarily met them at the 1st Precinct. During the interview, he asked to speak to his lawyer and was allowed to leave. […]

In September 2009, Weinstein spoke out against efforts to extradite director Roman Polanski from Switzerland to the U.S. to face 1977 charges of unlawful sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old. Polanski pleaded guilty to the charges before fleeing the country.

Weinstein, whose company had distributed a film about the Polanski case, questioned whether Polanski committed any crime.

University Of New Mexico To Celebrate “Indigenous Peoples’ Resistance And Resilience Day”…

UNM students chanting “indigenous land” on Columbus Day last year:

FCPic

Also known as “Kill Gringo Day.”

Via Campus Reform:

The Associated Students of the University of New Mexico (ASUNM) voted unanimously earlier this month to officially recognize a new holiday: Indigenous Peoples’ Resistance and Resilience Day.

The University of New Mexico’s (UNM) administration will have the final say regarding whether the holiday will be enacted.

Although the university does not celebrate Columbus Day on any of the academic or cultural calendars, ASUNM is hoping to establish a celebration that reflects the views of the student population toward the events surrounding the beginning of colonization.

“We would like to start the celebration of Indigenous People’s Resistance and Resilience Day to show our school’s understanding and support of all students, and to remember that, even through these events in the past, the indigenous peoples have stood strong in the face of so many hardships,” Jenna Hagengruber, ASUNM’s vice president, said in an email to Campus Reform.

The resolution claims to align with UNM’s overall mission of promoting diversity on campus and its mission statement of “enhancing the overall well-being of society.”

Radical Shiite Imams Fighting On Front Lines In Iraq To Stoke Islamic Fervor Among US-Backed Militia Fighters Battling ISIS…

enhanced-buzz-wide-21272-1427880760-19

Apparently Obama thinks these guys are better than ISIS because he has the U.S. military providing air support for them in Tikrit.

Via BuzzFeed:

The imam stepped through the broken village holding an assault rifle and wearing combat fatigues. All that stood out from the militiamen around him was the black turban that marked him as a holy man of Shiite Islam. He was at ease with the fighters as they stood amid the wreckage of a battle that drove ISIS from this patch of territory on the edge of Anbar in western Iraq. “This is my duty,” he said.

Murad al-Sharifi had completed years of religious study with plans to become a community imam when Iraq’s top Shiite cleric issued a call to arms in June. The fatwa from 84-year-old Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani helped to raise a volunteer force some 100,000 strong — and these militia have played a critical role in the fight against ISIS, which pushes an extremist version of Sunni Islam. But the growing strength of the militia has also brought fears that they will respond to ISIS’s atrocities with abuses of their own as Iraq enters a new stage in its history of sectarian strife.

At the center of the struggle are imams like Sharifi that many of the militia groups have dispatched to the front. They say their role is to stoke the religious passions that inspired the volunteers to join the fight — while also working to keep them in line. Sharifi said that in addition to fighting, leading prayers and counseling soldiers, he tries to keep their fervor from boiling over into sectarian attacks. He promotes the message that the minority Sunni Arab population — in a country increasingly dominated by its Shiite majority — are victims of ISIS too. Yet his very presence on the front was a testament to the war’s religious charge.

ISIS targets the imams with snipers, Sharifi said, and he knew of several who had died. But he was undeterred by dangers that were a far cry from the mosque-bound job he once had in mind. “As an imam,” he said, “you have to be in front.”

The militia officially work under the umbrella of the Iraqi government — and they have become its main fighting force, vastly outnumbering the military’s soldiers in key offensives across the country. In the largest battle against ISIS to date, in the city of Tikrit, the militia accounted for more than three-quarters of the troops, according to the U.S. military’s top general. They are backed by Iranian weapons, training and military advisors. “All we have to count on is God and Iran,” one fighter joked.

The outsized role of the militia — and the presence of the Iranians — initially led the U.S. to sit out the Tikrit offensive. But the U.S. military commenced airstrikes there last week, and the Iraqi government declared victory in the city on Tuesday.
