Desmond Tutu Calls On Fellow Global Warming Fruit Loops To Use Same Tactics That Beat Apartheid…

Desmond Tutu

Desmond Tutu continues to milk his role in the anti-apartheid for all its worth.

Via Raw Story:

Desmond Tutu, the Nobel peace prize winner and activist, has called for an international campaign to boycott mining companies, oil corporations and other businesses involved in the trade of fossil fuels. Writing exclusively in the Observer prior to this week’s UN climate summit in New York, Tutu says the same approach that was taken by the 1980s anti-apartheid campaign, of which he was a leader, should now be adopted in the battle to halt global warming.

“The most devastating effects of climate change – deadly storms, heat waves, droughts, rising food prices and the advent of climate refugees – are being visited on the world’s poor,” he states. “Those who have no involvement in creating the problem are the most affected, while those with the capacity to arrest the slide dither. Africans, who emit far less carbon than the people of any other continent, will pay the steepest price. It is a deep injustice.”

In his Observer article, Tutu urges world leaders including President Barack Obama to take a strong lead in setting up carbon emission curbs. However, he also proposes the launching of a populist campaign that would mirror the anti-apartheid campaigns, which argued that firms which conducted business with apartheid South Africa were aiding and abetting an immoral system. The businesses were targeted and their goods were boycotted.

Now Tutu wants to repeat this process for global warming. “Nobody should profit from the rising temperatures, seas and human suffering caused by the burning of fossil fuels,” he states. “We can boycott events, sports teams and media programming sponsored by fossil fuel companies; demand that their advertisements carry health warnings; organise car-free days and other platforms to build broader societal awareness.”

College Student Forced To Remove American Flag From Balcony Because ‘Foreign People Could Find It Offensive’


Via Breitbart:

A San Diego State University sophomore was forced to remove an American flag from his balcony after apartment managers said foreigners could find the display offensive.

Brad Smith, who had just moved into the Boulevard 63 apartment complex in San Diego last month, told ABC 10 News that he received a written notice to remove the flag a few days ago.

“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. “I’ve had friends and family fight to defend that flag.”

While Smith’s lease agreement with the apartment’s management does have a clause that says “no signs or other personal property may be kept outside the premises,” attorney Christian Curry told ABC. that the clause comes close to infringing on First Amendment rights.

“Clearly, they want to keep it clean and that’s something they want to accomplish,” Curry said. “It’s a compelling reason, but it’s hardly a reason that’s going to overcome your free speech.”

Management initially told ABC that anyone who hangs a flag would be asked to take it down; however, it looks like the management capitulated after the media highlighted the story. An associate of the owners of the apartment complex told ABC there was a “misunderstanding,” and that the flag would be allowed to fly.

Manhunt For Cop Killer Suspect Eric Frein Still Paralyzing The Poconos

Police Barracks Shooting

Just wanted to give an update to this case,since we were all sort of left hanging on Friday after reports of shots fired. They apparently thought they had him cornered then, but no such luck.

Via NY Post:

Pennsylvania police locked down a neighborhood and fanned out with heavy rifles to corner a cop-hating sharpshooter accused of killing a state trooper in the Poconos, sources said.

Cops shut down roads and told residents to stay in their homes as the manhunt for Eric Matthew Frein, 31, intensified in Barrett Township on Saturday.
“They would not let us turn around to go a quarter-mile back to our house . . . I’m hoping that sooner or later [Frein] just says, ‘I give up. You win,’ ” said Cana­den­sis resident Richard Barry, who couldn’t get to work due to the roadblock.

Frein, a self-styled survivalist, is charged with gunning down Cpl. Bryon Dickson and wounding Trooper Alex Douglass during a shift change at a Pennsylvania State Police barracks Sept. 12.

FBI agents wearing tactical gear rushed to the scene on Saturday morning after dozens of police in bulletproof vests surrounded the home of Frein’s parents, where he was believed to be hiding.

Two shots were fired at around 6:40 p.m. on Friday, a Monroe County 911 dispatcher said, but no injuries were reported, and no further details released.
About 20 people who couldn’t get back to their houses found refuge at nearby firehouse and were allowed to return to their homes on Saturday morning.“Due to the violent nature of his crimes, extreme precautionary measures are being taken,” she said.

Syria Reveals Previously Undeclared Chemical Weapons Facilities


How’s that whole agreement working out?

Via Breitbart:

Syria, which had claimed to have destroyed all of its chemical weapons production facilities, has revealed a previously undeclared research and development facility and a ricin-producing laboratory.

Reuters reports that, according to diplomatic sources, Syria detailed three new facilities to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) as part of an ongoing review of the government’s chemical arsenal.

The new disclosures lend support to accusations in recent months from some Western governments that Syria had not been upfront in its previous declarations regarding dismantling of its chemical weapons facilities.

The government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad agreed last year to eliminate its entire chemical weapons program after a sarin attack on Aug. 21, 2013 killed hundreds of people in Ghouta, a neighborhood in Damascus. Syria has never declared it had any sarin, and blamed the attack on rebels.

Under the agreement between Damascus, Washington, and Moscow, reached under the threat of U.S. military action, the OPCW oversaw the destruction of 1,300 tons of chemical weapons that Syria declared to the Hague-based body.

Maine Democrat Promotes Video With Lewd References To GOP Sen. Susan Collins Performing Sex Act…

War On Women.

Via Fox News:

The Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Maine is under fire from Republicans for promoting a video containing a rap song that makes a sexual reference to Republican Sen. Susan Collins.

Rep. Michael Michaud’s campaign says it did not pay for or oversee the contents of the video, and is lashing back out at Republicans for making it a campaign issue.

But the trouble started when Michaud retweeted the short video, a documentary-style clip on his campaign that was made by a Maine multimedia company.

The video includes a song by local rapper Spose. It lyrics include the line: “I’m the King of Maine. I’ve got Susan Collins giving everyone brain” — a slang term for oral sex.

The Maine Republican Party on Friday denounced the video and demanded Michaud apologize to Collins and “all Maine women” for his “endorsement” of the video.

“It is absolutely appalling and completely inexcusable that Michael Michaud would make a video with such a vulgar reference to Susan Collins,” party spokeswoman Deborah Sanderson said in a statement. “In his quest to win votes from a younger generation, Congressman Michaud has gone way over the line by participating in this depraved insult to Maine’s senior senator.”

Michelle Obama To Kids Suffering With Cancer: ‘Living In White House…Being Married To President…Can Be Hard’


Can’t make these things up…although I will give her props for responding to the hospital’s request and actually going to visit.

Via Weekly Standard:

First Lady Michelle Obama visited sick children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where she complained about living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and being married to the president of the United States. She made the comments in response to being asked about her “favorite part about being in the White House.”

“About being in the — about being First Lady is being able to do stuff like this, really. And it is so special for me to get to meet kids like you guys,” Michelle Obama started.

“Because sometimes living in the White House and being married to the President and trying to live a life like that, it can be hard. But when I meet you guys, I am so inspired, which is one of the reasons why I like to come and spend time with you guys. You all are smart, and you’re focused, and you’re just so courageous. And it’s just fun to be able — I could be here all day with you, if you haven’t noticed.”

The crowd of sick kids and parents laughed. So the first lady continued: “So this is a cool part. But living in the White House, actually living in the White House, what’s the best part? The best part is — I like the South Lawn, I like the Truman Balcony — I was telling Austin that, that that’s one of my favorite places to be, because we can be outside and you can look over the fountain, and you see the Washington Memorial, and it’s a really pretty view. And it’s peaceful.”

The comments were part of a 26-minute question and answer session Obama held with the kids.

Leaked Transcripts Reveal Putin’s Secret Attack In Ukraine


It hasn’t been ‘secret” in a while, but imagine, mothers aren’t allowed to question the deaths of their sons or even where they are sent, and journalists get attacked…

Via NY Post:

Giving lie to Vladimir Putin’s claims that Russia isn’t fighting in Ukraine, up to 80 Russian troops were killed in a skirmish there last month, according to information released by an opposition politician.

Members of an elite Russian paratroop force talked about the brutal battle near Luhansk, a city in eastern Ukraine, in telephone transcripts leaked to politician and newspaper publisher Lev Shlosberg.

“We’re f——g walking along looking for these f—–g Ukrainians,” one paratrooper says in an account reported by the Sunday Times of London.
“We get out into the open and are seen, kapow!” the paratrooper says.

“We dashed out onto the road, there was a field, sunflowers, and a checkpoint,” he continues. “They started to bomb it — bam bam bam — and they destroyed it.”

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


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


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


Whoopee! More free stuff!


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.

Intruder Who Made It Into The White House Was Iraq War Vet Suffering PTSD, According To Family

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.


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:

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


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


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…



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.
