Is it me or do Hollywood types like Christian Bale, best known for his role in Batman and American Psycho, not like Christianity or Judaism?
Can you imagine for a moment if any of the figures of Islam were called names by an actor in a movie about their religion? Heads would roll – literally. Isn’t this what the left calls hate speech? It’s selective free speech by an industry bent on bad movies.
If you have a wallet, fanny pack, purse, man purse, don’t use it to purchase tickets to watch this. If you want to learn about Moses, open a Bible or ask a priest or ask a pastor.
“I think the man was likely schizophrenic and was one of the most barbaric individuals that I ever read about in my life,” Bale said about Moses in front of a group of international reporters last month at the Four Seasons hotel in Los Angeles.
…Film critic Peter Chattaway at Christian site Patheos.com, for example, seems troubled because Bale “speculates about what was going on inside Moses’ head.” He’s also bothered because director Ridley Scott told Entertainment Weekly that it’s not Moses or God who will part the Red Sea, but that it will be caused by an earthquake.
We posted an earlier story about an self-concerned American nurse throwing a hissy fit for being held in quarantine in New Jersey because she had come from treating Ebola patients, and she had a fever.
Counterpoint. Here is a riveting story of a true hero, doing what he can in an ever-growing epidemic in Liberia. We are paying attention to Ebola because it has hit our shores, but he and others have been dealing with it since March, lacking doctors and facilities. He consciously chooses to live away from his family and to live by himself so that he doesn’t risk exposing them. He deals every day with violently ill Ebola patients and knows if he ever even makes one mistake, it might be his last.
The World Health Organization says the number of people believed sickened by Ebola has risen above 10,000. Of those, 4,922 people have died. Those numbers are likely an underestimate, according to WHO. It has particularly affected Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, but there have also been cases in three other West African countries, Spain and the United States. Mali recorded its first case of Ebola Thursday.
Michelle Malkin is behind a new movie outlining how Colorado went from red to blue and how the “Colorado Model” is being used in Texas and Virginia. Looks like an amazing movie, but your head may explode.

Seldom have I ever seen a medical ‘professional’ so self-concerned, so lacking in basic human concern for the possibility of carrying a pandemic to millions. Sorry, dear, above all, DO NO HARM!
Written by Nurse Kaci Hickox, via Dallas News:
I am a nurse who has just returned to the U.S. after working with Doctors Without Borders in Sierra Leone – an Ebola-affected country. I have been quarantined in New Jersey. This is not a situation I would wish on anyone, and I am scared for those who will follow me.
I am scared about how health care workers will be treated at airports when they declare that they have been fighting Ebola in West Africa. I am scared that, like me, they will arrive and see a frenzy of disorganization, fear and, most frightening, quarantine.
In what can only be described as democratic douchery, Charlie “The Trial Attorney” Crist refuses to give back $90k of strip club money. What happened to respect for women? If you’re in Florida, it’s time to wake the heck up.
What, no Communist too? She backed out when called on it. But next question, what questions must we ask about this Long Island mosque who invited this man?
On November 23, 2014, the Islamic Center of Long Island is hosting its annual fundraiser at the Garden City Hotel in Garden City, New York. Under the topic: “Islam in America: Roots & Beyond,” there are a few high-profile speakers who will be helping to raise money.
Among the speakers is Kathleen Rice, who is currently the Nassau County District attorney, and is a Long Island Congressional candidate.
As one of the three co-chairs of the Moreland Commission, Ms. Rice is coming under heavy fire from opponent Bruce Blakeman for failing to reveal her role in that committee’s mysteriously disbanding. And she’s had a rough week, as a ruling came down that her office has been temporarily banned from obtaining recorded jailhouse conversations between inmates and their lawyers.
Border is open, guys, come on in!
Illegal immigrants charged with violent crimes and serious felonies were among the hundreds of criminals the Obama administration released from jails across the country in February 2013, newly released documents show.
According to records obtained by USA Today, the government released inmates charged with offenses ranging from kidnapping and sexual assault to drug trafficking, armed assault, and homicide.
The evidence contradicts previous assurances by the administration that the 617 criminals who were released as part of a cost-cutting exercise were low-risk offenders charged with misdemeanors “or other criminals whose prior conviction did not pose a violent threat to public safety,” USA Today reported.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) admitted to the newspaper that numerous dangerous criminals had been released but denied direct responsibility.
Not surprisingly. The Nation is praising a sixth-century mentality using 20th century political strategy. Bill Maher can be a douche, but he finally sees that there is a big difference between Islam and other religions – that is news and not bigotry. The easiest thing to understand is women are not property. But, saying so makes you a red neck bigot. Oh well.

Since 9/11, Muslim-Americans have struggled to overcome the suspicions of their non-Muslim neighbors. These doubts have often manifested themselves in outright discrimination, and Muslims have been targeted by bigots in hate crimes across the country. In my own hometown in southern West Virginia, the mosque has been repeatedly vandalized, and local students report being subjected to routine racist bullying from their peers, as I reported for Al Jazeera America earlier this year.
Michael Brown’s family has gone on record saying that they did not want him to be used for business or political gain. However, they openly welcomed the politicization of the Brown shooting by Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, activist Attorney General Eric Holder and community agitating president Barack Obama.
When it comes to business profiting off of Michael Brown’s name, it appears that they have no problem with selling Michael Brown merchandise themselves.
Actually, there was a slight problem with members of Michael Brown’s family appearing to jockey for position of being the top Michael Brown retailer.
On Saturday, October 18, a disturbing altercation between Brown’s mother, Leslie McSpadden, grandmother, Pearlie Gordon, cousin, Tony Petty and other supporters led to one ending up in the hospital after being beaten by a metal object and Michael Brown t-shirts, as well as $1,400 being stolen by one of the family members.
The truth hurts. Being politically correct enables bad people to do bad things.

Canada has been long seen as a safe haven for extremism; a mix of liberal immigration policies and a belief in an inclusive society have made it the perfect place for planning and plotting, as evidenced by the string of attacks planned or carried out in Canada. Unfortunately we also have a rocky history of giving citizenship to militants from abroad. It’s well-known that Toronto-born Omar Khadr — the last Western citizen to be held by the US at Guantanamo Bay — came from a family known for their connections to Osama bin Ladenand had alleged connections to al Qaeda…
…The fact is, terrorist attacks have long been a threat in Canada. But now, with more active engagement in the Middle East, and an atmosphere in which potential threats are perhaps more easily radicalized and instantly martyred on social media, potential actors in Canada now have even more reason to act out.
That might leave a mark.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign is running a new ad accusing Democratic opponent Alison Lundergan Grimes of “hypocrisy,” citing low wages paid to workers at her family’s Hugh Jass burger restaurant.
“Alison Grimes talks about raising the minimum wage,” the ad’s narrator says. “But Grimes has a problem.”
“Servers at Hugh Jass Burgers – yeah, you heard that right – make just $2.13 an hour,” a CNN reporter says in the clip.
Wait so hackers will partner up with hackers? Sounds lovely.

Obama Admin To Train Syrian Rebels To Defend The Small Amount Of Territory They Hold, Not Take Ground From ISIS…
Doomed to fail.
The Syrian opposition force to be recruited by the U.S. military and its coalition partners will be trained to defend territory, rather than to seize it back from the Islamic State, according to senior U.S. and allied officials, some of whom are concerned that the approach is flawed.
Although moderate Syrian fighters are deemed essential to defeating the Islamic State under the Obama administration’s strategy, officials do not believe the newly assembled units will be capable of capturing key towns from militants without the help of forward-deployed U.S. combat teams, which President Obama has so far ruled out. The Syrian rebel force will be tasked instead with trying to prevent the Islamic State from extending its reach beyond the large stretches of territory it already controls.
“We have a big disconnect within our strategy. We need a credible, moderate Syrian force, but we have not been willing to commit what it takes to build that force,” said a senior U.S. official involved in Syria and Iraq operations who, like others cited in this report, spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the training program.
Military commanders are reluctant to push Syrian fighters into full-scale battles with well-armed militants if they cannot summon close air support and medical evacuations, mindful of how fledgling forces in Iraq and Afghanistan crumbled without that assistance during the early years of the wars in those nations. But U.S. military aircraft cannot provide that aid without American or allied troops in close proximity to provide accurate targeting information on secure radio channels.
Change has come to America…
The brutal hatchet attack on New York City police by a self-radicalized Navy veteran is only the beginning of a tidal wave of terrorist attacks about to descend on Americans.
Terrorism experts say that the assault on the four rookie officers by Zale Thompson, 32, of Queens, is not an isolated incident, but one of several jihadist “lone wolf” attacks that already have occurred, and a terrifying harbinger of the horrors that are to come.
“This is just the beginning — there will be more attacks,” former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik told Newsmax.
Thompson, whose Facebook page is filled with racist and violent jihadist rants, hid behind a bus shelter and suddenly charged the police, swinging an 18-inch steel ax like a baseball bat, fracturing the skull of one officer and smashing the arm of another, before their colleagues could draw their weapons, shooting and killing Thompson, Fox News reports.
Thompson served in the Navy from February 2001 to August 2003, Fox reports.
The New York assault comes on the heels of the murders of two Canadian soldiers by self-radicalized converts to Islam this week, one run down by a car and one gunned down in an attack on the Canadian Parliament.
Less than a week ago Martin Couture-Rouleau armed with only a motor vehicle aimed it at two Canadian soldiers and ran them down with it in an attempt to kill both of them.
Martin Couture-Rouleau is not a typical Canadian or a typical French Canadian (if such a thing exists). Martin Couture-Rouleau was radicalized rapidly and viciously against his countrymen to believe that the Islamic State has right to destroy them.
For nearly a year Couture-Rouleau was known to Canada’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police (“RCMP”) and for nearly year they did virtually nothing. In fact, the steps the RCMP took best be described as politically correct bureaucratic dreck.
Their efforts centered around talking it out with Couture-Rouleau and his Imam. Attempting to dissuade the 25 year old Canadian of extremism. Their focus centered around hugging it out, talking to him and trying to convince him the Islamic State and radical Islam did not have his best interest at heart and ultimately a path down radical Islam would mean only death for him and shame. Not virgins and fame. In Canada it seems state security is done with tea and poutine, not surveillance and incarceration.
Rather than detain Couture-Rouleau or monitor him the way you would a terrorist in even the United Kingdom Canada’s RCMP decided to simply avoid violating any of his pre-supposed rights while Couture-Rouleau descended further into Islamist thinking and making statements about killing Canadian troops, citizens and bringing about an end to Canada.
For nearly a decade, Canada has scolded the United States on the way it handles domestic security. In a week’s time Canada has come to realize a very shocking truth that is evident to everyone else. The world is a very dangerous place and people want to kill you. It’s nice to break bread with your enemies both foreign and domestic like Jesus suggested – but every once in a while you have to break some skulls too.
Sorry about the terrorism, Canada, but welcome to the real Earth. We’ve been waiting for you to join us for so long.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest took fire during his Friday briefing over the decision to bar print and video journalists from President Obama’s meeting in the Oval Office with Ebola survivor Nina Pham. During the briefing.
Earnest was pressed with questions on the matter from multiple members of the press corps, including ABC’s Jon Karl and Yahoo! News’ Olivier Knox over why the press to the event was being restricted “I would like to ask the White House, through you, to open the [Nina Pham] event to the full complement of print, television and radio reporters that typically cover an event like this.”
“In this case, we’re just going to do the still photographers,” said the White House flack. “I mean, why?” responded Knox. “Is it out of concern for her? To me it seems as though it reduces the magnitude of this event.”

BAGHDAD (AP) — Islamic State militants used chlorine gas during fighting with security forces and Shiite militiamen last month north of Baghdad, Iraqi officials said on Friday.
The use of chlorine gas as a weapon adds a new concern to the turmoil in the country. The reports, if confirmed, would be the first time the Sunni extremists attempted to use chlorine since their blitz earlier this year that seized large chunks of territory in northern Iraq and neighboring Syria.
Three Iraqi officials — a senior security official, a local official from the town of Duluiya and an official from the town of Balad — told The Associated Press that the Islamic State group used bombs with chlorine-filled cylinders during clashes in late September in the two towns.
In the attacks, about 40 troops and Shiite militiamen were slightly affected by the chlorine and showed symptoms consistent with chlorine poisoning, such as difficulty in breathing and coughing, the three officials said. The troops were treated in hospital and quickly recovered.
The senior security official said it was most likely that the Islamic State fighters obtained the chlorine from water purification plants located in the areas they had overrun earlier. Iraqi intelligence has indicated that the IS group has some shells filled with chlorine and they are ready to be used, the official also said.
