Malaysian Islamists Want Man Stoned To Death For Organizing Dog-Petting Event For Muslims…

Stoned to death for petting a dog? Seems a tad excessive.

Via TIME:

A Malaysian social activist has received death threats and torrents of online abuse for organizing a dog-familiarization event that religious conservatives claim insults Islam.

More than 1,000 people attended the “I Want to Touch a Dog” event in the affluent Bandar Utama neighborhood on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur on Sunday to learn about Islam’s views on canines and become familiar with the animals, which are a source of fear for many Malaysians.

But the event’s planner, Syed Azmi Alhabshi, has now been forced into hiding after hard-liners insisted he “should be stoned to death.”

Traditionally, dogs are considered haram, or forbidden, in Islam as they are thought of as dirty. But while conservatives advocate complete avoidance, moderates simply say Muslims should not touch the animal’s mucous membranes — such as the nose or mouth — which are considered especially impure. Even if that happens, they say, there is a special cleansing ritual that can be followed.

Socialist Sen. Elizabeth Warren Now Hinting She May Consider Run For President…

Elizabeth Warren

Is there a single person out there who thinks America could withstand an Elizabeth Warren presidency following Obama’s eight year train wreck?

Via The Hill:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Wednesday said in a People magazine interview that she is focusing on her work in the Senate — for now.

Asked whether she was mulling a bid in 2016, Warren used language that made it sound like a run wasn’t out of the question.

“I don’t think so,” she said at her Cambridge, Mass., home for this week’s issue. “If there’s any lesson I’ve learned in the last five years, it’s don’t be so sure about what lies ahead. There are amazing doors that could open.”

“Right now,” she said, “I’m focused on figuring out what else I can do from this spot” in the U.S. Senate.

Ready For Warren campaign manager Erica Sagrans said that the People interview “leaves more wiggle room” in Warren’s answer about a presidential campaign.

“This opens the door to a possible run in 2016,” Sagrans said, “and shows Warren’s definitely thinking about it.”

Warren is a liberal hero, and progressive groups on the left have openly urged her to run for the White House. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the overwhelming favorite to win the Democratic nomination if she chooses to run, but Warren has emerged as a possible rival.

Denver Post Declares Renovated Union Station Racist Because Mostly White People Go There…

Denver Union Station hosts a public event for their grand opening celebration featuring food trucks and live music on Wynkoop Street and free tours of the building.

You’d swear something this mind-numbing was satire… it is not.

Did diversity miss the train in Union Station’s architecture? – Denver Post

Thursday, 1 p.m.: 186 whites, 1 black, 4 Latinos, 4 Asians.

Friday, 6 p.m.:647 whites, 6 blacks, 6 Latinos, 7 Asians

Saturday, 11 p.m.:693 whites, 4 blacks, 2 Latinos, 7 Asians.

It’s dangerous to assign race to people simply by glancing at their faces. Some people don’t look at all like their race. Many people are a mix.

But if my recent counts of people in the restaurants, bars and shops in and around Denver’s rehabbed, reopened Union Station are even close, it’s an overwhelmingly white place. How can the new cultural jewel of our city — where 47 percent of the population is minority — draw a crowd that is 98.2 percent Caucasian on a bustling, buzzed Saturday night?

The station’s owner, the Regional Transportation District, worked long and hard to develop a city center that would reflect and showcase Denver’s particular personality. None of the eateries are chains; the beers are Colorado-brewed. The architects, builders and programmers who turned the original 1914 building into a contemporary social hub are nearly all local.

But walking through the station, it doesn’t look at all like Denver in 2014. More like Denver in 1950. More like Boise, Idaho, or Billings, Mont. This is a public place, owned by all of us, open to all, but the invitation to visit was declined by many, and it’s obvious who isn’t showing up. […]

Three months in, the place hums early and late. The Crawford Hotel on the top floors is a hit, and the best 8 p.m. restaurant tables are gone weeks in advance. A few years ago, the station was a ghost town. Now it is wildly popular, and in many ways, a smashing success.

If, that is, you are white and not paying attention. Or if you think diversity doesn’t matter. If you do, you can’t help but feel like something is off amidst all the clinking of martini glasses in the swank Cooper Lounge on the mezzanine, or the low hum of pucks sliding across shuffleboard tables in the Great Hall.

California Forces Churches To Directly Fund Abortions By Reclassifying Them As A “Basic Health Service” Under Obamacare…

Abortion

Sickening.

Via Life News:

To the dismay of California’s people of faith, the California Department of Managed Health Care has reclassified abortion as a “basic health service” under the Affordable Care Act and ordered all insurance plans in the state to begin covering surgical abortions immediately. Even churches are not exempt from funding abortions.

Operation Rescue opposes this policy that forces men and women who deeply oppose abortion on religious grounds to fund surgical abortion in violation of their faith, and encourages others to oppose it as well.

“Since Obamacare was first introduced, we warned that the day could come when Christians would be required by the state to violate their consciences through forced payments for abortion,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Now, with this mandate in California that imposes forced abortion funding on churches, it has come time for men and women of faith to stand against this tyranny and refuse to comply with this unjust law that would make us accessories to the taking of innocent human life.”

Hamas Kills 3-Month-Old American Baby Girl: “This Is The Natural Response To The Occupation Of Our Land By The Jews”…

Still waiting for that condemnation from CAIR, probably going to be a long wait.

WASHINGTON — Three-month-old Chaya Zissel Braun, the baby girl killed today in Jerusalem during a vehicular terrorist attack, was an American citizen, a US official confirmed to The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday night.

The girl was thrown from her stroller as a car swerved into the Ammunition Hill light rail station, injuring seven others.

State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf has “urged restraint” and calm from both sides after the attack.

“The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms today’s terrorist attack in Jerusalem,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in an evening statement. “We express our deepest condolences to the family of the baby, reportedly an American citizen, who was killed in this despicable attack, and extend our prayers for a full recovery to those injured. We urge all sides to maintain calm and avoid escalating tensions in the wake of this incident.”

The suspected perpetrator has alleged ties to Hamas, Israeli officials say.

“This is a natural response to the crimes of the occupation and invasion of our land by the Jews,” Hamas spokesman Hossam Badran said in response to the attack.

Moonbat Professor: “Only Way” To Save Planet From Global Warming Is To “Terminate Industrial Civilization”…

Climate Protest

In other words, he’s insane.

Via Daily Caller:

Mankind is doomed unless we immediately de-industrialize and slash carbon dioxide emissions, according to Guy McPherson, emeritus professor from the University of Arizona.

McPherson appeared on Paul Henry’s New Zealand-based talk program to warn that global warming was “irreversible” and the only way to stop it is to “terminate industrial civilization.”

“I think there’s ample chance we can save the living planet, but not our species. … Some people think that this whole thing is about us,” McPherson told the Paul Henry Show. “We just showed up… I don’t think this is about us, I think it’s about the living planet.”

“The only way to stop runaway climate change is to terminate industrial civilization,” he said. “The evidence is clear on that front and it is in the refereed journal literature.”

Report: Michael Brown Had So Much THC In His System It Could Have Triggered Hallucinations…

No surprise considering St. Swisher stole a box of blunts just before he attacked Officer Wilson.

Via WaPo:

… The St. Louis County Police Department and the FBI are investigating the shooting, and evidence gathered by both agencies is being presented to the grand jury, which started meeting in mid-August and is expected to conclude its work early next month.

The evidence the grand jury is reviewing is voluminous. From the beginning, St. Louis County prosecuting attorney Robert McCulloch decided jurors would hear and review all credible and reliable evidence, including testimony from each eyewitness.

Jurors have also been provided with the St. Louis County autopsy report, including toxicology test results for Brown that show he had levels of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana. The Post’s sources said the levels in Brown’s body may have been high enough to trigger hallucinations.

Food Stamps Are Being Used Like Currency By Drug Dealers…

1353514164_2154_Food stamps

This is one of those things people just knew was happening…

Via Telegraph-Forum:

A public assistance service that feeds Ohio’s hungry families can double as currency for drug dealers who will trade almost anything for their product.

Dubious businesses and drug dealers will buy electronic benefits cards for about half the amount loaded onto the card. From there, people use the cash to buy drugs, said Eric Wolf, agent in charge with the Ohio Investigative Unit, which investigates food stamp fraud and liquor license violations.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as food stamps, cannot be used to buy items such as tobacco, alcohol or drugs. The penalties can be stiff for offending businesses and their owners because food stamp fraud is a felony offense, Wolf said.

In the past five years, the food stamp program has permanently disqualified 142 stores in Ohio for food stamp fraud — nearly all were in Ohio’s largest cities. However, the U.S. Department of Agriculture does not track how many of those were related to drugs

Van Jones: Sarah Palin Had Democrats ‘Shaking In Their Boots’ In 2008…

Takes a lot for someone like Van Jones to admit this…

Via Truth Revolt:

On CNN Tuesday night, activist and former Obama green jobs czar Van Jones and television and radio host and author of “Hands Off My Gun” Dana Loesch discussed the latest Palin-bashing extravaganza the media is currently wallowing in. During the festivities, Van Jones let it slip that maybe Sarah Palin wasn’t as dumb and worthless as Democrats have tried to paint her for every second of every day since the moment she took the national stage. He opined:

“Sarah Palin .. people forget. She had the Democratic party shaking in our boots in 2008. She came out, she gave that speech at the convention. That was, hands down, one of the best convention speeches – not by a woman, by anybody in 2008. People were running for the hills.”

Jury Convicts Ex-Blackwater Guards In 2007 Baghdad Killings…

How many days will they be talking about this on MSNBC?

Via Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – In a sweeping victory for the U.S. government, a federal jury on Wednesday found four former Blackwater guards guilty on nearly every count they faced in connection with the 2007 killing of 14 unarmed Iraqis at a Baghdad traffic circle.

Jurors found three of the ex-guards guilty of manslaughter and weapons charges, and a fourth guilty of murder.

The verdict comes more than seven years after the shooting incident that outraged Iraqis and inflamed anti-American sentiment around the world.

A court clerk read the jury’s verdict aloud on Wednesday around noon to a packed courtroom, repeating the word “guilty” 71 times as the defendants sat and listened silently.

Paul Slough, Dustin Heard and Evan Liberty were convicted of voluntary manslaughter in connection with at least 12 deaths at Nisur Square, where the Blackwater unit had been trying to clear a path for a U.S. State Department convoy. The Washington jury also found the three guilty of attempted manslaughter in connection with the wounding of at least 11 Iraqis who had been at the site.
