Please ignore, nothing to worry about – CAIR

Via CST:

A man who had an ISIS flag waving from his vehicle is facing several charges after he threatened police with a bomb Wednesday morning when he was pulled over on the Southwest Side.

Emad Karakrah, 49, was charged with felony counts of disorderly conduct and aggravated fleeing; and a misdemeanor count of driving on a never-issued license, according to Chicago Police. He was also issued three traffic citations.

Someone called police after seeing a “suspicious person” driving a silver Pontiac southbound in the 7700 block of South Kedzie at 9:18 a.m. with an ISIS flag waving out the window, according to a police report.

Officers attempted to pull over the vehicle, but the driver took off, according to the report. The officers called for assistance, and another officer pulled the vehicle over after it went through several red lights.

The man told police during his arrest that there was a bomb in the car and he would detonate it if they searched the vehicle, according to the report.

Boko Haram: “Democracy Worse” Than Incest And Homosexuality…

I didn’t think anything was worse than homosexuality in the Islamic world.

(Reuters) – The leader of Nigeria’s Islamist group Boko Haram said his fighters now ruled the captured north-eastern town of Gwoza “by Islamic law”, in the first video to state a territorial claim in more than five years of violent insurrection. His message also contained taunts for Western governments and compared democracy to incest.

“Allah has granted us success in Gwoza because we have risen to do Allah’s work,” Mr Shekau said, reading out a statement off a notebook, with two masked gunmen on each side of him and three four-wheel-drive vehicles behind him in thinly forested bush. [...]

Police spokesman Emmanuel Ojukwu said on Sunday that 35 policemen were missing after an attack on a mobile police training camp in Gwoza.
Mr Shekau also taunts France, Israel and the US in the video.

“Democracy is worse than homosexuality, worse than sleeping with your mother,” Mr Shekau says. “You are all pagans and we will kill you, even if you do not attack us we will kill you … Allah commands us to kill without pity.”

Poll: Majority of Americans Think Obama Is “Not Tough Enough”…

Could it be the mom jeans? Or maybe it’s because he throws a ball like an eight-year-old girl?

Via Washington Examiner:

A majority of Americans, 54 percent, don’t believe that President Obama is tough enough with foreign foes, feeding their concerns that the world has become a far more dangerous place under the Democratic administration, according to the Pew Research Center.

Pew found that 65 percent believe that the world is more dangerous than it was several years.

And they put ISIS near the top of U.S. threats. The Middle East terrorist group without borders ranks second to al Qaeda in the poll.

The poll of 1,501 was taken August 20-24, as Obama was on vacation and under attack for not being forceful enough on several foreign issues, including the war in Syria, the Israel-Palestine fight and Russia’s encroachment into Ukraine.

What it found wasn’t good for the White House. Americans more than at any other time during Obama’s presidency believe that he is “not tough enough” on foreign policy and nearly half believe America’s power has sunk under Obama.

Hillary Clinton Boldly Makes A Statement On Ferguson . . . 19 Days Later…

Hillary Clinton

Pant Suits is the ultimate political hack.

Via The Hill:

Hillary Clinton addressed the events in Ferguson, Mo., on Thursday for the first time since the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer, calling for a “thorough and speedy investigation.”

“We don’t want to see our streets look like a war zone. Not in America. We are better than that,” she said at a technology conference in San Francisco, responding to images broadcast across the country of police in helmets and armored vehicles deploying tear gas.

She also praised “decent and respectful law enforcement officers, who showed what quality law enforcement looked like.”
“We cannot ignore the inequities that persist in our justice system,” she added.

They were her first comments since the shooting on Aug. 9 and the protests that drew national attention. Today is the 51st anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I have a Dream” Speech, which Clinton noted.

US Won’t Call Russian Invasion Of Ukraine An Invasion

russian invasion of ukraine

I guess all those Russian military units are just sight seeing…

Via BuzzFeed Politics:

U.S. officials are refusing to call Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine this week an invasion, and the issue is not on the agenda for Thursday’s National Security Council meeting.

“Today the president is meeting with his National Security Council to discuss the situation in Iraq and Syria, our ongoing efforts to support the Iraqi government, and our efforts to counter the threat posed by ISIL,” a White House official said on Thursday when asked if the situation in Ukraine would also be a part of the meeting. “You should not expect that we’ll have new decisions to announce on these issues today.”

The meeting will include heads of intelligence agencies, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry, the three of whom plan to join remotely. The meeting is expected to include discussion of whether or not the U.S. will carry out strikes against the Islamist terrorist organization ISIS inside Syria.

Russian combat troops are currently inside southeastern Ukraine. NATO released satellite imagery showing this on Thursday. “The satellite images released today provide additional evidence that Russian combat soldiers, equipped with sophisticated heavy weaponry, are operating inside Ukraine’s sovereign territory,” NATO Brigadier General Nico Tak said.

Despite this, no one seems to want to call what is going on in Ukraine an invasion.

Asked by Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC on Thursday why the United States has favored terms like “incursion” and “aggression” instead of “invasion” to characterize the situation in Ukraine, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said, “I think this is a discussion about terminology” and that it doesn’t change the kind of support the U.S. is giving Ukraine and the discussions U.S. officials are conducting.”

US B2 Bombers Train Near China Amid Continued Tensions

b2

Just another friendly reminder not to screw with us.

Via the Washington Free Beacon:

Three B-2 strategic nuclear bombers completed a tour of duty in Guam this week, as tensions remained high between the United States and China over what the Pentagon called a “dangerous” Chinese fighter-jet intercept of a U.S. surveillance plane last week.

“This training deployment demonstrates continued U.S. commitment to global strategic bomber operations throughout the Asia-Pacific region, and exercises the president’s credible and flexible military options to meet national security obligations for the U.S. and its allies,” said Navy Adm. Cecil D. Haney, commander ofU.S. Strategic Command.

Adm. Haney said in a statement that the bombers are intended to send a message to allies and adversaries.

“It is important for U.S. Strategic Command to continue to project global strike capabilities and extended deterrence against potential adversaries while providing assurance to our allies through deployments such as this,” he said.

The deployment is part of Strategic Command’s efforts to promote regional security and stability in the Asia-Pacific. He noted that the command’s forces “are on watch 24-hours a day, seven days a week conducting operations to detect and deter strategic attack against the United States of America and our allies.”

Obama Sounding More And More Like Bush On Airstrikes

In other words, he’s sounds better and better on airstrikes.

Via The Washington Examiner:

President Obama was sent to the White House on promises of being different from his predecessor. But of late, he’s sounding a lot like George W. Bush.

“America does not forget. Our reach is long. We are patient. Justice will be done,” Obama said this week when discussing the threat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria poses to U.S. citizens.

The phrasing was reminiscent of Bush’s remarks after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when he said “whether we bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done.”

White House officials were quick to point out that rhetorical flourishes aside, Obama and Bush have fundamentally different visions about the use of American forces in the Middle East. Obama, who was first elected by arguing that Bush’s war in Iraq was a mistake, has called for avoiding messy foreign entanglements.

But the success of ISIS militants scrambled those arguments, pushing Obama into a more offensive posture in Iraq and considering expanding into airstrikes in Syria.

Once Obama’s range of options changed, so did his rhetoric. For some, the echoes were unmistakeable.

“George W. Obama?” quipped a former senior administration official in the Bush administration. “I certainly had a bit of deja vu there.”

Liberals, in particular, are wary of mission creep in the Middle East and say that such rallying cries must be accompanied by the messy details often left out of presidential addresses.

“The key question, obviously, is what does ‘justice will be done’ mean?” one Democratic House aide told the Washington Examiner. “That’s a great applause line, but we have to see the fine print, too.”

University Of Oregon Going After Student Over Harmless Joke

university of oregon

Just unbelievable…

Via the Washington Free Beacon:

Students at the University of Oregon began their fall semester on Monday amid controversy over conduct charges filed against a female student for making a joke.

The university is under fire for filing five charges against the student after she yelled “I hit it first” to a couple passing under her window during the summer semester. The student, who requested anonymity, said she did not know the couple and called out the phrase in jest, according to her account to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.

FIRE is now calling on the university to drop the charges and revise what it calls unconstitutional speech codes.

“It is remarkable that the university apparently didn’t give a first thought to this student’s First Amendment rights before throwing the book at her and allowing these unconstitutional charges to hang over her head for the entire summer,” said Peter Bonilla, Director of FIRE’s Individual Rights Defense Program, in a prepared statement yesterday.

“Incoming and returning UO students should be aware of the lack of regard shown by the university for their right to free speech,” Bonilla said.

Aside from harassment, the student has been charged with “disruption” and “disorderly conduct.” The notice of allegations she received from the university outlined all the charges.

Dem Rep. Luis Gutierrez: “Xenophobic” Republicans Forcing Obama To Issue Amnesty Executive Order…

You knew Gutierrez would play the race card.

Via Breitbart:

Thursday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) said “anti-immigrant” and “xenophobic” House GOP members blocking immigration reform have forced President Barack Obama to address the issue by giving amnesty with an executive order to an estimated 6 million illegal immigrant currently living in the United States.

Gutiérrez said, “There are a dozen very anti-immigrant, xenophobic members of the House of Representatives in the Republican majority that just have a stranglehold. We cannot have that. I think what the president is going to say is, look, there are people that have established themselves. I want a legislative solution. You’re not giving me one.”

Holder To Give Funds From DOJ’s $16 Billion Settlement With Bank Of America To Radical Leftist Groups…

Attn Gen. Holder Announces 17 Billion Dollar Settlement With Bank Of America Over Mortgage Securities Fraud

Nah, nothing shady about this.

Via Judicial Watch:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) keeps giving radical leftist groups that support President Obama huge amounts of cash collected from big banks to settle discrimination and mortgage abuse lawsuits filed by the government.

Judicial Watch first reported the scheme two years ago when Countrywide Financial Corporation doled out $335 million to settle its discrimination lawsuit with the feds. The money was supposed to be distributed to more than 200,000 minority victims who supposedly were charged higher interest rates and fees than white borrowers based on their race not their credit. Instead, a chunk of the money went to Democrat-tied groups not connected to the lawsuit, including the scandal-plagued Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and the open-borders National Council of La Raza (NCLR).

Now many of the same groups will get more money from a record $16.65 billion settlement with Bank of America. It’s a “historic resolution,” according to Attorney General Eric Holder, and the money will help make amends to borrowers and communities that were negatively affected by the bank’s conduct. Besides settling civil penalties at the state and federal level, the billions will bring relief to struggling homeowners and communities by, among other things, offering new loans and providing financing for affordable rental housing. Delinquent borrowers in Democrat strongholds like Chicago, Oakland and Detroit will also benefit from debt forgiveness.

Leftover funds will go to politically-connected community groups—like the NCLR, Operation Hope and National Community Reinvestment Coalition—that intimidate banks into qualifying more minorities for home loans, even if they really can’t afford it. This part of the deal is conveniently buried in the 37-page DOJ agreement, but a publication dedicated to covering business, finance and economics draws attention to it in a scathing editorial that refers to the arrangement as extortion.

California Assembly Passes Bill Mandating BB Guns Be Painted Bright Colors…

Criminals in California paint their real guns bright colors in 3… 2… 1…

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – I said it before, and I’ll say it again: “From the “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” file, a bill currently in the California Legislature would require BB guns and Airsoft Pellet guns painted bright toy colors so they won’t be mistaken for real guns.” And they did.

The legislation has had difficulty passing, but finally made it out of the Assembly 41-34. The bill will go back to the Senate for a vote.

SB 199, by Sen. Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles, will require BB and airsoft guns to be painted bright colors to make them “readily identifiable” so law enforcement officers can distinguish them from real firearms.

BB guns are used for a variety of purposes, including competitive use. During shooting competitions, many prefer using BB guns as they are inexpensive and easy to learn and equip. Even soldiers use BB guns for target practice and skill improvement.

De León justified this ridiculous bill because of incidents in which police officers shot people wielding realistic-looking BB or Airsoft rifles. De León has insisted all along that marking toy guns would prevent potentially deadly split-second decisions.

“Horrific things happen when a toy gun is confused with the real thing,” said Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-San Rafael. “This bill can prevent that tragedy.”

Taxpayer-Funded PBS To Air Propaganda Documentary Seeking To “Humanize” Late-Term Abortion Doctors…

Because there’s nothing wrong with “doctors” ripping viable babies from their mother’s womb in the most grotesque ways imaginable.

Via LifeNews:

A pro-life group is calling on taxpayer-funded PBS to cancel its plans to air a pro-abortion movie on Labor Day that “humanizes” late-term abortionists who kill unborn children in the third-trimester.

“After Tiller” profiles Warren Hern, Shelley Sella, LeRoy Carhart, and Susan Robinson, some of the last third-trimester abortionists left in the United States.

On September 1, PBS will be showing the pro-abortion propaganda film “After Tiller” that seeks to sanitize the practice of killing unborn children after viability in late-term abortions. The station also provides resources for people to host an at-home viewing party. [...]

The taxpayer-funded television station prefers to describe the movie this way:

Martha Shane and Lana Wilson’s After Tiller is a deeply humanizing and probing portrait of the only four doctors in the United States still openly performing third-trimester abortions in the wake of the 2009 assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas—and in the face of intense protest from abortion opponents.

It is also an examination of the desperate reasons women seek late abortions. Rather than offering solutions, After Tiller presents the complexities of these women’s difficult decisions and the compassion and ethical dilemmas of the doctors and staff who fear for their own lives as they treat their patients.

ISIS Executes 250 Syrian Soldiers, Bodies Piled Up In The Desert…

The ROP body count continues to grow at an astonishing rate.

Via Daily Mail:

Sickening footage appears to show Islamic State militants parading 250 captured soldiers through the desert in their underwear before they are killed and their bodies piled on the bare earth.

An Islamic State fighter said the men were from the Syrian government’s Tabqa air base which extremists seized on Sunday – handing them warplanes, helicopters, tanks, artillery and ammunition.

The video, too graphic to be published in full, first shows dozens of men being marched through the desert and made to chant in Arabic wearing only their underwear.

It then fades to black and resumes on an image of a pile of bloodied bodies stacked on top of one another.

As the horrific footage progresses it pans slowly across a vast line of men who appear to be dead, and whose bodies have been laid out one by one.

The line forms a slow crescent across the desert, seemingly stretching to the horizon as militants stand beside it. Eventually, after more than a minute, the cameraman reaches the end of the line.
