Yet Burke still acting like it’s not a big deal…

Via Townhall:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has surged ahead of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke, as Burke has been forced to fire campaign staff responsible for copying her campaign’s job plan from other failed candidates.

The most recent Marquette Law School Poll, conducted September 11-14, found Walker enjoying a 3-point, 49-46 percent lead over Burke. This was a marked improvement for Walker who trailed Burke in Marquette’s earlier poll, conducted August 21-23, by 49-47 percent.

Burke’s week only got worse after BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski reported that portions of Burke’s jobs plan had been copied from four other Democratic candidates, three of whom went on to lose their elections.

Hundreds Of Children Are Leaving Germany To Join Islamic Jihadists…

ISIS

German intelligence shows children as young as 13 are going to Syria and Iraq to join the Islamic jihadists.

Via The Local:

Hans-Georg Maaßen, head of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), told the Rheinische Post at the weekend that at least 24 children had headed to the Middle East from Germany. “The youngest was 13,” he said.

Of the 24 who have left, five children have returned with battle fighting experience, Maaßen said.

Among the 24, there were also four girls who, according to Maaßen, travelled with a “romantic ideal of marrying a jihadist.”

They married fighters who they met online, the BfV head added.

Around 400 Germans have joined jihadists in Iraq and Syria, security services believe.

The majority are young, male and poorly educated and around 130 have returned.

One 30-year-old Turkish man was arrested by a special police unit in Berlin on Monday after returning from an Isis training camp in Syria. He was allegedly trained in weapons handing by Isis in Syria from January to August this year.

WH Meets With Syrian American Who Openly Sympathizes With Al Nusra Front On Best Way To Arm Rebels…

Via IPT:

Fresh from congressional approval to arm and train Syrian rebel groups fighting the vicious Islamic State terrorist group, the White House met this week with Syrian American advocates to discuss how to proceed.

But one of the people consulted is on record defending and sympathizing with Syrian rebels tied to al-Qaida.

Mohamad Alla Ghanem, government relations director for the Syrian American Council, touted his White House visit on his Facebook page Thursday.

Last November, Ghanem wrote about a trip to Doha, where he got to meet Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a spiritual guide to the Muslim Brotherhood who has endorsed attacks against American troops in Iraq and suicide bombings against Israelis.

“I love this appreciated scholar very much,” Ghanem wrote, “even I adore his jurisprudence. I consider this a great honor. Now, I am over the moon.” Qaradawi has been banned from entering the United States and United Kingdom due to his support for terrorism.

But that’s not the only time Ghanem has praised jihadists.

In December 2012, Ghanem wrote a column in Washington Post in which he criticized the United States for classifying Jabhat Al Nusra as a terrorist organization. Sure, many Jabhat leaders are ideological on par with al-Qaida, he wrote, but not all of its members share that view. And the group “has achieved military successes and has delivered critical civilian aid.”

In a column published a week ago by The Hill, Ghanem noted a recent Islamic State attack that wiped out the leadership in the Syrian rebel group Ahrar al-Sham. It is perhaps “the most hardline Syrian rebel group,” and founded by al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri’s personal representative in Syria, but it is an Islamic State rival nonetheless.

DEVELOPING: Three Afghan National Army soldiers who vanished from a Cape Cod military base where they had been taking part in a training exercise have been found at the Canadian border near Niagara Falls, a senior Pentagon official told Fox News.

The men were reported missing by the Massachusetts National Guard Saturday night at Joint Base Cape Cod. A statement identified the soldiers as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, 48, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, 18, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar, 20.

“They have been found,” the source said. The men were found near Rainbow Bridge, which spans New York and Ontario, but no other details were immediately available.

Liberal Media Give People’s Climate March 4 1/2 Times As Much Network Attention As March for Life…

Via Business and Media Institute:

Not only did the broadcast networks spent more time on the People’s Climate March, than the March for Life, they portrayed it positively, ignoring all the radicalism promoted by participants.

NBC “Nightly News,” ABC “World News Tonight” on Sept. 21 and CBS “This Morning” and ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Sept. 22 gave a combined 3 minutes and 27 seconds to the climate march. That was four-and-a-half times the 46 seconds of stories that NBC and ABC evening news shows gave to the March for Life in January 2014.

Boosting the claims of protesters concerned about global warming, “World News Tonight” and “Nightly News” mentioned a recent statement from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) saying the summer of 2014 was the “warmest summer on Earth” on record. Neither pointed out that record keeping only dates back to 1880. That’s just a tiny fraction of Earth’s history after all.

Top-Level Turnover At DHS Makes It Difficult To Stay On Top Of Evolving Threats…

DHS

Well, this is reassuring…

Via WaPo:

An exodus of top-level officials from the Department of Homeland Security is undercutting the agency’s ability to stay ahead of a range of emerging threats, including potential terrorist strikes and cyberattacks, according to interviews with current and former officials.

Over the past four years, employees have left DHS at a rate nearly twice as fast as in the federal government overall, and the trend is accelerating, according to a review of a federal database.

The departures are a result of what employees widely describe as a dysfunctional work environment, abysmal morale, and the lure of private security companies paying top dollar that have proliferated in Washington since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

The department’s terrorism intelligence arm, for example, has cycled through six directors during the Obama administration, decimating morale and contributing to months-long delays in releasing intelligence reports, according to interviews and government reports.

A parade of high-level departures, on top of other factors, has meanwhile helped slow the rollout of key cybersecurity initiatives, including a program aimed at blocking malicious software before it can infiltrate civilian government computers, former officials say.

John Kerry: Climate Change As Urgent A Threat As ISIS…

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.

Head Of Abortion Group Talked About As Potential DNC Chairwoman…

Stephanie Schriock, president of Emily's List

What better person to keep the “War on Women” crap alive than a lady like this?

Via Daily Caller:

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.”

Report: Obama Providing Indirect Military Aid To Hezbollah To Help Them Fight ISIS…

Hezbollah

Via INN:

Mohammed Afif, the new head of public relations for the Lebanese-based Iranian-backed terror organization Hezbollah, gave a rare New York Times interview as Lebanese experts reveal his group is indirectly receiving American intelligence aid in its fight against Islamic State (ISIS).

Following ISIS’s temporary conquest of Arsal last month on the Lebanese side of the Syrian border, the US sent new weapons to the Lebanese army, which coordinates with Hezbollah. Likewise, US intelligence has found its way to Hezbollah according to Lebanese experts.

That leaked intelligence may explain some recent impressive achievements against ISIS, including the first known Hezbollah drone strike.

It is worth noting by contrast to the blasé indirect provision of intelligence and weapons to a terror group in Lebanon, during Operation Protective Edge US President Barack Obama blocked a routine Hellfire missile shipment to Israel and ordered strict supervision on future transfers.

Afif told the American newspaper “we need to open up a new page with the world media, with the Arabs and internationally,” hinting at the international legitimacy he hopes to achieve for the terror group under his role as media adviser to Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah.

Nasrallah recently expressed his fears of the ISIS “monster,” calling the fight with the group “a battle of life and death no less important than fighting the Israeli enemy, as (ISIS) actions and objectives only serve Israel.” Indeed Hezbollah has called to wipe out Israel numerous times, and fought terror wars against the Jewish state.

White House Finally Admits Some Of The American ISIS Members Have Already Returned From Syria…

Self-detonations in 3… 2… 1…

Via TIME:

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.

Taxpayer-Funded Global Warming Musical Bombs, Closes After Only 3 Weeks…

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.

College Student Told To Remove American Flag From Apartment Balcony Because It Could “Offend Foreign People”…

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.

Libs Trying To “Shut Down” NY Stock Exchange To Protest Global Warming…

Failure to ensue.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) – Hundreds of environmentalists plan to “shut down” the New York Stock Exchange later Monday to protest the relationship between global warming and Big Business.

Scores of protesters had already gathered in lower Manhattan early Monday for an event dubbed #FloodWallStreet. They planned to march a few blocks north to Wall Street and stage a “sit-in” until forced to leave.

Their beef: the fossil fuels industry and other companies are profiting at the expense of the environment. The activists said they were willing to be arrested to drive home the link between global capitalism and worsening climate change.

“The climate crisis is fundamentally an issue of the economy,” one activist told CNN. “Flood Wall Street is an attempt to bring the problem to the doorstep of the people who are fundamentally responsible for the crisis we find ourselves in now.”

Organizers, who have not obtained permits, expect participants to be “arrested in droves.” Blue-clad protesters plan to unfurl a 300-foot banner and will inflate a 15-foot “carbon bubble,” according to a statement on the #FloodWallStreet website.

American Muslim Leader To Obama: Stop Telling Us ISIS Has Nothing To Do With Islam…

If only more Muslims in America felt the same way.

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?

Arizona High School Football Coach Suspended For Two Games For Praying With Team…

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) – A Tempe school football coach must miss his team’s game Friday as part of a punishment for praying with his players.

Tom Brittain is serving the second week of a two-game suspension from his job as coach at Tempe Preparatory Academy.

Headmaster David Baum says Brittain instructed a player to lead the team in prayer after they won a game.

Baum says staff cannot appear to condone religion to students on behalf of the state-funded charter school’s behalf.

Some students hung a sign in support of Brittain at the school’s homecoming game last week.

Lois Lerner Breaks Silence: “I’m Not Sorry For Anything I Did”…

Proud hack.

Via Politico:

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS.

Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m proud of my career and the job I did for this country.”

Lerner, who sat down with POLITICO in an exclusive two-hour session, has been painted in one dimension: as a powerful bureaucrat scheming with the Obama administration to cripple right-leaning nonprofits. Interviews with about 20 of her colleagues, friends and critics and a survey of emails and other IRS documents, however, reveal a much more complicated figure than the caricature she’s become in the public eye.

The portrait that emerges shows Lerner is, indeed, fierce, unapologetic and perhaps even tone-deaf when she says things that show her Democratic leanings. She had a quick temper and may have intimidated co-workers who could have helped her out of this mess. It’s easy to see how Republicans have seized on the image of a devilish figure cracking down on conservative nonprofits. [...]

“Regardless of whatever else happens, I know I did the best I could under the circumstances and am not sorry for anything I did,” the 63-year-old said.
