Facebook And Amazon Still Selling ISIS Merchandise…

Having trouble finding a gift for the liberal in your life? Then today’s your luck day!

Despite Facebook’s claims that a cluster of pages peddling ISIS goods would be taken down, recent searches show many pages containing merchandise with the terrorist group’s symbols still remain on the most popular social-media site in the world.

“At Facebook, we have rules that bar direct statements of hate, attacks on private individuals and groups, and the promotion of terrorism,” said Facebook spokesman Israel Hernandez in June. “We have a team of professional investigators both here in the U.S. and abroad who enforce these rules. Where hateful content is posted and reported, Facebook removes it and disables accounts of those responsible.”

The items offered for sale include baseball caps, clothing and jewelry – many bearing the familiar black flag associated with the terrorist group and its slogan, “Baqiyah.”

One of the Facebook pages is run by a jihadi sympathizer based in Toulouse, France. He posts pro-ISIS messages on his “Baqiyah Création” page and advertises “high-quality” products made for “true believers,” according to MEMRI’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor.

Despite Weiner Sexting Scandal, “Body Woman” Huma Abedin And Hillary Still Together

huma21n-3-web

Attached since Huma was an intern in 1996, no kidding…

Via NYDN:

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt.

“Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?”

The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum.

One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief of staff, Abedin was constantly at her boss’ side as Clinton toured the country promoting her memoir, “Hard Choices,” over the summer. And there she was again last weekend, standing just behind Clinton as the former First Lady worked the rope line at an Iowa steak fry, a visit widely seen as the first concrete public step by Clinton toward an expected 2016 presidential campaign.

The only apparent change in Abedin’s longtime presence as Clinton’s trusted “body woman” was the length of her hair — she cut her long locks into a sleek bob over the summer.

NYC ID Cards For ‘Undocumented Immigrants’ To Include More Free Stuff

idcards19n-9-web

Whoopee! More free stuff!

Via NYDN:

The city’s new ID cards will do more than just give undocumented immigrants identification — they’ll grant free memberships to top cultural institutions, from Carnegie Hall to the Bronx Zoo.

And officials hinted the cards eventually will provide discounts at movie theaters and other more commercial entertainment venues.

It’s part of a plan to make the cards — which will debut in January — appeal to a wide range of New Yorkers, not just to undocumented immigrants, Mayor de Blasio said.

Hizzoner made the issuance of ID cards a cornerstone of his mayoral campaign. The cards, he said, would help undocumented immigrants access services they could not receive without identification.

Kurdish Fighters Head To Syria To Fight Militants Without US Support

Kurdish fighters

Meanwhile Lurch’s Operation Dithering Coalition of 40 is still recruiting.

Via Stars and Stripes

Hundreds of Kurdish fighters have crossed from Turkey and Iraq into neighboring Syria to defend a Kurdish area under attack by Islamic State militants, as leaders of the ethnic group appealed for international assistance in their battle against the extremists.

The movement of the Kurdish fighters into Syria reflected the ferocity of the fighting in the northern Kobani area, which borders Turkey. Militants of the extremist Islamic State group have been barreling through the area over the past three days, seizing villages and forcing at least 60,000 Syrian Kurds to flee into Turkey.

“Kobani is facing the fiercest and most barbaric attack in its history,” said official Mohammed Saleh Muslim, head of Syria’s powerful Kurdish Democratic Union. The groups’ members dominate the Syrian Kurdish group known as the YPK, which is fighting the Islamic State militants.

“Kobani calls on all those who defend humane and democratic values … to stand by Kobani and support it immediately. The coming hours are decisive,” he said in a message sent to reporters.[...]

But it’s not clear if the U.S. would be willing to assist the Syrian Kurdish fighters. The YPK is viewed with suspicion by many Syrian rebels and their Western supporters because of perceived links to President Bashar Assad’s government. That may be changing, however, as Kurdish fighters battle alongside some Syrian rebel groups against the Islamic State in northern and eastern Syria.

NATO member Turkey is also wary of the group, which it believes is affiliated with the Kurdish PKK movement. Turkey has so far been cool to any international coalition to fight the Islamic State group, but if Western countries are seen publicly arming the Syrian Kurds, it would likely destroy any hopes of cajoling the Turkish government into cooperating.

The intruder who scaled a White House fence and made it through the front doors was an Army veteran diagnosed with combat trauma, but authorities said Saturday the case was still under investigation.

A family member in California said Omar J. Gonzalez, 42, of Copperas Cove, Texas, near Ft. Hood, has been homeless and living alone in the wild and in campgrounds with his two pet dogs for the last two years.

“We talked to him on 9/11 and he said he planned to go to a Veterans Administration hospital to seek treatments,” said the family member, who asked that he not be identified pending completion of the Secret Service investigation.

Report: Demonstrator(s) Allegedly Hit By White Man With Car In #Ferguson, Pics Look Like Demonstrators Surrounded, Blocked Car…Update: Dem State Senator Behind Incitement

Reports are varying, some mentioning the following white demonstrator as being hit by a white man in a car:


Notice crowd mobbing the police, not letting man be taken.

Others mentioning black demonstrators being hit:

All parties were reportedly taken in by police, likely to straighten out what happened, but this, of course, angered the crowd that the people allegedly hit were taken by the police as well.

Right now, multiple rabble rousing such as this, from some lady with a Che twitter background, with calls to march on the police station:

But this visual looks like the demonstrators were actually blocking the car(s) on the street.

Here’s video, before it disappears, they surrounded and pounded on his car, yet still no evidence that he actually hit anyone. He seems to have proceeded at very slow speed.

Update:

Here’s another note. The person ginning up the incident, claiming “the KKK” ran over protesters is Maria Chapelle-Nadal, a Democrat member of the Missouri State Senate. Check out her twitter, it has a Che background[whoops, she just changed it]. She is inciting people to march on the police.

Psst, no visible KKK, just one poor man surrounded by a mob trying to proceed. Moreover, apparently, the State Senator is unfamiliar with the fact that you do not have to read Miranda rights upon arrest, you only have to read them upon questioning of a suspect.

Here’s her Twitter background, which perhaps explains why she is doing all this ginning up:
maria chapelle-nadal twitter background

For those who don’t know, that is the illustrious racist murderer Che Guevara, who Ms. Chapelle-Nadal appears to favor.

Update:

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports:

Three people were arrested during protests near the Ferguson Police Department on Saturday afternoon after a protester claimed he was bumped by a passing vehicle, police said.

About 35 people were protesting at 2:16 p.m. on South Florissant Road about a block from the police department when a protester claimed he had been bumped by a vehicle, according to Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson. No one reported any injuries, but the driver was arrested along with a protester who damaged the man’s car. A third man was taken into custody when he ignored police orders to get out of the roadway.

Definitely Headline Of Week: Polygamist Women In Ninja Costumes Attack Two In Utah

(KUTV) Police are investigating a home invasion in West Jordan where two polygamist women dressed in ninja costumes came armed with knives and a stun gun and attacked two adults.

The incident happened early Friday morning at a home near 9300 S. and 4800 W. Police say the suspects told them they are married to a man in another criminal case.

Police say a witness in that case lives in the home that was attacked.

The plot thickens. The attacking polygamist ninjas may have been trying to intimidate a child victim of sexual abuse. The suspect in the sexual abuse case, the child’s uncle, may have been involved with both women.

Canadian Government Begins Invalidating Passports Of Citizens Who Have Left To Join Extremist Groups

Canada_flag_halifax_9_-04

Message to Congress: Canada gets it.

Via National Post

The government has begun invalidating the passports of Canadians who have left to join extremist groups in Syria and Iraq, Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander revealed in an interview on Friday.

The minister told the National Post his department had also revoked the passports of several Canadians who had not yet left the country but who had intended to travel to the volatile region to enlist as foreign fighters.

He would not disclose the number of passports Citizenship and Immigration Canada had revoked over the conflict but said there were “multiple cases.” The government says about 30 Canadians are with extremist groups in Syria and 130 are active elsewhere.

“Yes, I think it’s safe to say that there are cases of revocation of passports involving people who’ve gone to Syria and Iraq already,” Mr. Alexander said. “I just don’t want to get into the numbers, but multiple cases.”[...]

Mr. Alexander said while they were few in number, he was troubled that Canadians had joined ISIS, which has been committing widespread atrocities in an attempt to impose its militant version of Islamic law on Syrians and Iraqis.

“We are not by any means the leading contributor of foreign fighters to Syria, even though the dozens that are there and the 130 that are abroad [with other extremist groups] is a disturbing number for all Canadians. But we want to ensure that Canada’s good name is not besmirched by these people any more than it already has been and that Canadians are protected.”

#BringBackOurGirls…By Releasing A Slew Of Terrorists?

So instead of destroying Boko Haram and stopping this from happening again, they’re going to let out 30 of the top commanders and reinforce the terrorist forces. So next month when Boko Haram kidnap more girls, what will the government do?

(CNN) — Nigerian government officials and the International Committee of the Red Cross have had talks with Boko Haram about swapping imprisoned members of the Islamist terrorist group for the more than 200 Chibok school girls kidnapped in April, a source involved in the negotiations told CNN.

The officials met four times in mid-August with two senior members of Boko Haram in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja.

The swap would involve the release of 30 Boko Haram commanders in the custody of the Nigerian government, according to the source, who asked not to be named due to the sensitivity of the issue.

Province In “Moderate” Muslim Indonesia Proposes 100 Lashes For Gay Sex…

Caning

Via AFP

Gay sex could be punishable by 100 lashes of the cane in Indonesia’s staunchly conservative Aceh province if parliament passes a draft law that critics say violates basic human rights.

Aceh is the only part of the world’s biggest Muslim-majority nation to enforce Islamic sharia law and has been slowly implementing it since 2001, when it gained some powers of autonomy.

A draft bylaw sent to AFP on Saturday outlaws anal sex between men and “the rubbing of body parts between women for stimulation”, and for the first time applies Islamic laws and punishments to non-Muslims.

The bylaw also punishes adultery with 100 lashes of the cane.

The bylaw reinforces previous sharia legislation that bans alcohol consumption, gambling, fraternising between unmarried men and women, and physical displays of affection outside of marriage, such as touching and kissing.

Va. Dems Say GOP House Candidate Winning Only Because She’s A Woman

The war on women continues.

Via NRO

Barbara Comstock, currently a member of Virginia’s House of Delegates, is running for Congress in the state’s tenth district — where local Democrats says she is getting a pass at the polls because of her sex. The district’s Democratic party tweeted yesterday:

— VA 10th Democrats (@VA10thDemocrats) September 19, 2014

The tweet was in response to Comstock’s latest ad condemning her Democratic opponent, John Foust, for “sexist” comments. Last month Foust told a Leesburg audience, “I don’t think she’s even had a real job.”

Comstock’s campaign issued the following statement –

John Foust’s statement is offensive. This attack insults working women, federal employees, lawyers, small businesswomen, and Moms at home – all of whom have real jobs and pay the very real taxes that John Foust raises and advocates. This desperate attack shows how out of touch he is with who it is that lives and works in the 10th District and the challenges that working women, working Moms and Moms at home face every day by men who demean their many and demanding roles. We understand the desperation of Democrats this year but this was beyond the pale.

Are The Military And Obama Regime Whitewashing Bergdahl’s Crimes?

US-AFGHANISTAN-MILITARY-HOSTAGE-POLITICS-FILES

Good piece. Can’t embarrass the One…

Via NY Post:

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash.

The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama.

Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

In addition, the Taliban deal appears to have encouraged the Islamic State to put up American hostages as trade bait to free other terrorist detainees, namely “Lady al Qaeda” Aafia Siddiqui.

Obamacare Architect Announces ‘Optimal Age Of Death’

ezekiel-ap

It’s Ezekiel ‘Death Panel’ Emanuel at it again. The article is supposedly about his personal choice, but within it is an implicit judgment on the value of life. Hurry up and die, don’t oppress your children and society with the possibility having to take care of you. Or in his words, is “our consumption” “worth our contribution”?

Via The Atlantic:

Seventy-five.

That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.

This preference drives my daughters crazy. It drives my brothers crazy. My loving friends think I am crazy. They think that I can’t mean what I say; that I haven’t thought clearly about this, because there is so much in the world to see and do. To convince me of my errors, they enumerate the myriad people I know who are over 75 and doing quite well. They are certain that as I get closer to 75, I will push the desired age back to 80, then 85, maybe even 90.

I am sure of my position. Doubtless, death is a loss. It deprives us of experiences and milestones, of time spent with our spouse and children. In short, it deprives us of all the things we value.

But here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived. It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.

Retired Head Of Marine Corps: Obama’s ISIS Strategy “Doesn’t Have A Snowball’s Chance In Hell Of Succeeding”

retired head of marine corp conway

Hey, just the former head of the Marine Corps, not like he has Obama’s military experience, you know killing Osama Bin Laden and all…

Via Daily Caller:

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail.

“I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, according to a source in attendance.

Maverick PAC has described itself as a super PAC ”dedicated to inspiring the next-generation of conservatives, electing a new generation of conservative leaders, and sharing common goals and interests that will help shape the future of America.”

The source said Conway’s major concern was that the U.S. did not have a force on the ground in Syria it could rely on, like the Kurdish Peshmerga in Iraq. Though the Obama administration believes it can support what it says are moderate rebel forces in Syria to aid in the fight against ISIS, many critics warn that there may be no truly moderate force in the country of any significant strength.

Syrian Rebels Said To Control Most Of The Border With Israel, UN Evacuates To The Safety Of Israel

Mideast-Israel-Al-Qai_Horo2-e1409938780328-635x357

Obama not concerned, the rebels are only forward deployed.

Via Times of Israel

Syrian rebels are in control of almost the entire Syrian border with Israel, a monitoring group and the Al-Arabiya news network reported Saturday.

According to the report quoted by Israel’s Channel 10, rebel forces on Friday gained control of two additional villages near Quneitra, the war-torn nation’s solitary border crossing with Israel, leaving only one village in the Syrian army’s hands

The report added that the towns of Rawadi and Hamidiyah were taken after heavy fighting between the rebels and the army, loyal to President Bashar Assad.

“The regime is on the retreat before the advancing rebels,” Syrian Observatory for Human Rights director Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP. “The regime has now lost control of about 80 percent of towns and villages in Quneitra province.”

On Friday night a mortar shell exploded on the Israeli side of the Golan Heights, in what authorities believe was a stray from fighting across the border. There were no reports of injuries or damage.

Meanwhile Israel Radio reported that UN peacekeepers were evacuating the equipment from Camp Faouar, their main headquarters in Syria, to Israel. UN troops were bringing their gear over the border via special gates opened for them by the IDF, according to the report, and not through Quneitra which is now under rebel control. Only a small Fijian force is expected to remain at the base in a few days. [...]

Last week, several mortar shells exploded in an open area in the Golan Heights, apparently the result of inadvertent spillover from fighting in Syria, according to the IDF. Israel responded by firing a Tamuz missile at the origin of the attack. An IDF spokesperson said the strike was successful.

Artillery from Syria has landed frequently on the Israeli side of the Golan Heights for the past few weeks as regime and rebel forces fight over the Quneitra crossing.

Second Person In Two Days Arrested For Trying To Unlawfully Enter White House

Probes? Or reaction to the disintegration of Obama regime?

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Secret Service says a man has been arrested for trying to unlawfully enter the White House, less than 24 hours after a fence-jumper made it all the way into the building.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan says a man showed up at one of the White House gates on foot, then showed up in his a car at another gate and pulled into the vehicle screening area. He refused to leave and was arrested for unlawful entry.

The arrest comes the day after a 42-year-old man scaled the fence and managed to get through the North Portico doors before agents were able to apprehend him. The Secret Service is reviewing that incident.

Penn High School Suspends Student Editor For Refusing To Print The Word “Redskins”…

The self-righteousness is strong in this mini-moonbat.

Via lib rag Think Progress:

School officials at Neshaminy High School in Pennsylvania have issued suspensions for the student editor and faculty adviser of the student newspaper there after the paper refused to print the word “Redskins,” the racist nickname of the school’s athletic teams.

Gillian McGoldrick, the paper’s student Editor-in-Chief, was suspended from the paper for a month. The paper’s faculty adviser Tara Huber was also suspended without pay for two days by district Superintendent Robert Copeland for failing to stop the students from moving ahead with their ban on the word.

Tensions between the school’s administration and the editors of Playwickian have been building for nearly a year. Twice the editors of the Playwickian announced they would not print the name of the school’s mascot because it is offensive to Native Americans, opting instead to run it as “R——-”, and twice principal Rob McGee threatened to discipline the paper and any editors who refused to print the word. McGee also reportedly confiscated copies of the paper during a meeting with McGoldrick in June, deducted $1,200 from the paper’s account, and attempted to block access to the paper’s social media accounts.

The case got so heated that it has attracted the attention of press freedom advocates at the Student Press Law Center, who stepped in last fall to help defend the editors in case school officials followed through with their threats. Any disciplinary action taken by the public school could leave the district open to legal action for violating students’ free speech, an attorney at the SPLC told Poynter in July.

That was not enough to stop administrators from issuing suspensions this week.
