I’ll take my chances with “climate change.”
Via The Hill:
Secretary of State John Kerry said the threats posed by climate change should be addressed with as much “immediacy” as confronting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and the Ebola outbreak.
During a meeting with foreign ministers on Sunday, Kerry said global warming is creating “climate refugees.”
“And when you accrue all of this, while we are confronting ISIL and we are confronting terrorism and we are confronting Ebola and other things, those are immediate,” he added, using an alternate acronym for the terrorist group.

The leader of a prominent abortion political organization is being discussed as a possible candidate to take over the Democratic National Committee.
Stephanie Schriock of EMILY’s List — which spends money supporting pro-abortion access, female Democrats to office — is a plausible replacement if current Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz gets pushed out the door, according to Politico.
Schriock was asked about the job while on MSNBC on Monday and said, “Right now, I’m thrilled about the leadership Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been providing. She’s been a fighter for Democrats and a fighter for women and families in Florida. And we just want to continue working with her to win these elections in 2014.”

Late last night, the Washington Free Beacon’s Alana Goodman unearthed previously sealed correspondence between Hillary Clinton and former radical Chicago activist Saul Alinsky. Shortly after, some reporters wasted no time in trying to downplay the story by mocking it. They questioned or failed to see why this was important, yet trumped up trivial stories in comparison about Mitt Romney’s “lost years” during the height of the 2012 presidential election.

The Obama Administration believes some Americans who have fought alongside the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) have returned to the United States, a senior Administration official said Monday.
During a briefing for reporters Monday in the ornate Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the Administration’s efforts to address the issue of so-called foreign terrorist fighters, the official said that the latest assessment from National Counterterrorism Center is that more than 100 Americans have attempted to fight in Iraq and Syria alongside ISIS or the al-Qaeda affiliated al-Nusra Front.
“It includes those who’ve gone, those who’ve tried to go, some who’ve come back and are under active—the FBI is looking at them,” the official said. “These are FBI matters, I refer you to them on specifics.”
It marked the first official government confirmation that at least some of the Americans fighting alongside the Islamist extremist group have returned to the U.S. As late as Monday morning, Secretary of State John Kerry said on MSNBC that “we have over 100 fighters there from America,” leaving out any mention of Americans who have returned.
Ok, maybe it’s not all that stunning.
Update to this story.
Via Free Beacon (HT: Local Malcontent)
After a series of lackluster reviews, the traveling global warming musical that was financed by the U.S. taxpayers is ending its run early.
The Great Immensity, a musical described as “painfully long” and “awkward,” was made possible by a $697,177 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
“The play, which featured songs and video exploring Americans’ relationships to the environment, opened in New York in April with a three-week run before going on a national tour that was supposed to attract 75,000 patrons,” FoxNews.com reported. “But it stalled after a single production in Kansas City, falling short of the lofty goals outlined in a grant proposal.”
The musical was intended to tour the country in an effort to convince Americans to act on climate change. It ended up attracting meager audiences of theatergoers who were likely already on board with the play’s politics, the Washington Free Beacon found after seeing the play on its opening night in New York City.
If someone is “offended” by our flag then they are they here?
SAN DIEGO – A local college student contacted Team 10 after he said his apartment complex managers told him he needed to take down his American flag.
Brad Smith moved into the new Boulevard 63 Apartments last month. The property is not owned or operated by San Diego State University.
A couple days ago, he received a notice to remove the American flag hanging from his balcony.
Smith asked the apartment community managers why.
“We were then told that it was for political reasons and that the flag could offend foreign people that live here, foreign exchange students,” Smith said.
That did not sit well with the SDSU sophomore.
“I’ve had friends and family fight to defend that flag,” Smith said.
If only more Muslims in America felt the same way.
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser: Please, if anybody in this administration is listening, stop telling us Muslims what is Islamic. I mean, so he’s saying this is compounding the sin? How about when he shakes and hugs the king of Saudi Arabia for their being custodians of the Holy Mosque and yet they have imprisoned apostates, liberals Muslims. They’re a mysogynistic nation that treats their women as third class citizens. Or the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, or the Islamic Republican of Iran. Hundreds of millions of Muslims running governments all over the world that line their prisons and torture Christians and Jews and Muslims, that’s Islamic? And ISIS came out of thin air? ISIS is a by-product of those ideologies. And to deny it and dismiss it, they’re trying to bury us reformers from having a seat at the table.

Environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. lamented that there were no current laws on the books to punish global warming skeptics. . “I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under,” Kennedy told Climate Depot in a one-on-one interview during the People’s Climate March. The interiew was conducted for the upcoming documentary Climate Hustle.
Kennedy Jr. accused skeptical politicians of “selling out the public trust.” “Those guys are doing the Koch Brothers bidding and are against all the evidence of the rational mind, saying global warming does not exit. They are contemptible human beings. I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under.”
Kennedy saved his most venomous comments for the Koch Brothers, accusing them of “treason” for “polluting our atmosphere.”
“I think it’s treason. Do I think the Koch Brothers are treasonous, yes I do,” Kennedy explained.
“They are enjoying making themselves billionaires by impoverishing the rest of us. Do I think they should be in jail, I think they should be enjoying three hots and a cot at the Hague with all the other war criminals,” Kennedy declared.
The also mock Obama for claiming Islam has noting to do with ISIS.
The media portrayed the crusaders as good, merciful, noble, generous, honorable and passionate people who feared for Islam and the Muslims the “corruption and cruelty of the khawārij (a deviant, extremist sect) of the Islamic State” as they allege. To the extent that Kerry, the uncircumcised old geezer, suddenly became an Islamic jurist, issuing a verdict to the people that the Islamic State was distorting Islam, that what it was doing was against Islamic teachings, and that the Islamic State was an enemy of Islam. And to the extent that Obama, the mule of the jews, suddenly became a sheikh, mufti (Islamic scholar that issues verdicts), and an Islamic preacher, warning the people and preaching in defense of Islam, claiming that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. This occurred during six different addresses he made in the span of a single month, all of them about the threat of the Islamic State.

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Police say two thieves robbed six people in the 1100 block of Mississippi Saturday night and said “This is for Mike Brown” before fleeing the scene.
According to investigators, the six victims, whose ages range from 59-61, were leaving a restaurant and walking north on Mississippi when the two suspects approached them. One suspect pulled out a gun and the other demanded the victim’s property.
The victims complied and the suspects fled the scene.
One of the suspects is described as a black male with a thin build, 18-25 years old, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, and wearing a white tank top, blue jeans, and medium length braids or twisties, and armed with a silver handgun. The second suspect is a black male, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall, wearing all black clothing and a black ski mask.
The investigation is ongoing.
That’s because they’re idiots.
At the United Nations General Assembly, Secretary of State John Kerry will make “climate change … a foreign policy priority,” the State Department announced in press release. “Secretary Kerry Elevates Climate Change at UN General Assembly,” the press release is titled.
“Secretary of State John Kerry will participate in several high-level events to reinforce U.S. leadership on climate change action this coming week during the UN General Assembly in New York,” reads the release.

NOTE: READ THE HILLARY CLINTON-SAUL ALINSKY LETTERS HERE.
Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development.
Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.
Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.
The letters obtained by the Free Beacon are part of the archives for the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training center for community organizers founded by Alinsky, which are housed at the University of Texas at Austin.
The letters also suggest that Alinsky, who died in 1972, had a deeper influence on Clinton’s early political views than previously known.
