The Solar Industry is Dying: World’s Biggest Green Energy Company Collapses


From Breitbart:
SunEdison, valued at $10 billion in July 2015 is now worth just $400 million today. This represents a catastrophic loss for the investors gulled into this sector in the mistaken belief that “clean” energy is the future and that it’s possible to make lots and lots of money and polish your environmental conscience at the same time.
THE SOLAR INDUSTRY IS DYING, GOOD RIDDANCE!
If you still own shares in solar energy it’s probably a sign that you’ve been in the sun too long: the sector is tanking – and deservedly so – as reality dawns that this is a Potemkin industry, an Enron of a con-trick, whose survival depends not on the energy it generates but on the subsidies it squeezes from the taxpayer. 
Consider Exhibit A: the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System in the California desert. This $2.2 billion project, heavily backed with federal grants by the Obama administration, is absolutely brilliant at killing birds. According to some estimates it accounts for 28,000 a year (the workers at the plant nickname them “streamers” because they fall from the sky like burning comets), though the company denies this. 
What it’s not so good at is the job it was designed for: generating electricity. 
It has failed to produce sufficient quantities of its exorbitantly expensive power (it charges between $135 and $200 per megawatt hour; the market rate for conventional electricity is $35 per megawatt hour) as required by its contract with PG&E Corp and may have to shut down unless bailed out by the California state authorities. 
Exhibit B is the solar energy firm Abengoa, now on the verge of the biggest corporate collapse in Spanish history, after the Spanish government decided to turn off the subsidy tap essential to its survival. 
This was the company that in 2010 President Obama was boasting about having lured to the US as though it represented some kind of major coup. Announcing government support for clean-energy projects, President Obama hailed a Spanish company, saying its new solar technology would supply tens of thousands of American homes with renewable power, while spurring local employment. 
“It’s good news,” Mr. Obama said in 2010, “that we’ve attracted a company to our shores to build a plant and create jobs right here in America.” Yes, “green jobs” in the “clean-energy” are very easy to create when you’re forcing the taxpayer to subsidise them to the tune of a minimum of $82,000 a year and – in some cases – $2,000,000 a year. 
This is what happened with Obama’s Green Jobs program. Like its ugly twin the wind industry, solar is entirely dependent for its survival on government subsidy. Almost inevitably this tends towards crony capitalism and spectacular misallocation of resources. 
We now have a truly absurd situation whereby not just in California and Nevada but even in overcast, rainy places where the sun almost never shines – Germany, for example; and Maine – people are being bribed by the government to put up solar panels which generate next to no useful energy but which are very good at putting up the price of electricity for everyone else. 
This cannot go on forever. Sooner or later – as has already happened in Spain – taxpayers are going to wake up to the fact that there are better ways of having their money spent for them than on gigantic anti-bird death rays.
AND THEN THERE'S THIS:

John Kasich's "Culinary Controversy"

This is news? And in the political section, too.

Are you kidding me?

From ABC News (dated March 30, 2016):
Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich bit into culinary controversy this week when he turned down a Wisconsin dessert and used a fork to eat pizza in New York.
The 24/7 news cycle will be the death of us all.

Why I have little hope for a republican convention….

If Redstate calls Trump voters..well…

‘Everything that’s wrong with that particular brand of rabid racist scumbag Trump supporters’ 

Then doesn’t THIS  make the relentless unthinking inquisitors of Cruz supporters all antisemitic, and therefore racists as well?

Hillary and Bernie are out there waiting to see WHICH kind of racists succeed so they can ensure the American people understand they will either vote for NOT-RACISTS or RACISTS in place of ‘it’s the economy, stupid’. And that’s your election.

The issue has now gone far beyond the candidates. The issue is among those for whom this system does not function (calling all Bernie supporters) and will not go along AGAIN, vs those to whom their idea of ‘conservative’ is a purity which must be maintained.

It should be clear now that at the least a very large plurality will either stay home (and part vote for Bernie should he succeed), OR a large plurality will stay home after the ‘republican party’ elite decides they will allow Trump to carry the banner alone and face a polite shunning at best from his own party.

The only other alternative is a selection on some later ballot.
  1. Who is out there right now that could satisfy both wings of this party?
  2. Who is out there that could end the damages of free trade and not harm that ‘conservative principle’?
  3. Who is out there that could satisfy the corporate, hedge fund, big business ‘needs’ for legal and ILLEGAL immigration and be serious about a secure border?
  4. Who is out there that has the mind and nerve to kill ISIS, navigate among China and Russia, manage NATO, and uphold our values in the world while satisfying the wings of ‘America should stay home and mind it’s own business’ and ‘American leadership is a GOOD THING and without it the world has caught fire’
  5. Who is out there that recognizes the ravages the POLITICAL CLASS has now wrought on the people, intended or not, ignorant or not, inimical or not, and garner the support of an integral part of that same class?
NO ONE.

Anyone out there fails one of the wings on issues of principle which are fundamental to that wing.
Especially on the last issue, it should be clear the Republican party is either finished, or a sullen population will conclude IT’S OVER OVER HERE. I choose the death of the Republican party.

EASILY.

And I’m not so sure the Democrats are not facing the same thing.

SHOTS FIRED AT CAMPERS/HIKERS IN APPLE VALLEY - HOT SPRINGS, CA; ARMED TERROR CELL NEAR LOS ANGELES? COPS RESPONDED, HANEDCUFF THEM --- THEN LET THEM ALL GO !!!!


EPA SEZ UPDATE AT BOTTOM-LA TIMES

From Super Station 95:
8:28 PM EDT Sunday, 27 March -- A heavily armed group of men with Middle Eastern appearance was arrested two hours ago outside Los Angeles after opening fire upon Hikers and Campers in a large State Park in the area. 
THIS STORY HAS BEEN UPDATED BELOW WITH AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM THE SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT 
Photos taken by one of the victims of the attack have been supplied to SuperStation95 as have screen shots of MMS messages sent/received during the incident. 
They appear below. No word yet from authorities about the identities or affiliation of the men arrested. 
The Adelanto, CA Police Department effectuated the arrests. According to the victim/witness, there were two groups of men, about 15 per group, armed with heavy weapons, who began shouting "Allah u Akbar" and started firing. 
The firing allegedly lasted upwards of TWO HOURS before police were able to find callers in the vast California parkland. 
When police were responding, one group of 15 or so men took-off into the hills, while the other group was captured by police. According to one of the victim/witnesses, his cellphone GPS map indicates below where the incident took place: 
Police responded and quickly made several arrests as shown in the photos. 
A call to the Adelanto, CA Police Department went to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department and a new "twist" developed." 
Kathy, from that department told SuperStation95 "I checked on this and the incident was unfounded." 
When told we had photos of almost ten police cars and fourteen men in handcuffs, Kathy responded "You'll have to contact the Public Information Officer" and gave us an e-mail address to do so! You're looking at the pictures; does this look "unfounded" to you?
GO LOOK AT THE PHOTOS, AND THE TEXTED REPORTS OF THOSE WHO WITNESSED THE ACTION, AND TELL ME IF THIS LOOKS "UNFOUNDED" TO YOU.

Trump Believes Abortion Should Be Banned And There "Should Be Some Form of Punishment" For Women Who Have Abortions


This is something I did not know about Trump. He refuses to be clear in this interview with Chris Matthews. So who knows what he really thinks.

But it is funny when Matthews feigns moral outrage at Trump's position, only to have Trump turn the tables on him, asking, "Are you Catholic?"

Matthews: "Yes."

Trump: "How do you feel about the Catholic Church's position?"

Matthews: "I accept the teaching authority of my Church on moral issues."

Trump: "Yeah, but do you know their position on abortion?"

Matthews: "Yes, I do."

Trump: "And do you concur with that position?"

Matthews: "I concur with their moral position, but legally ..."

And then Chris Matthews changes the subject, because he simply does not want to admit he agrees with Trump on this issue, and that he would be grateful, were Trump to actually be elected President, and somehow ban abortion.

If you say you agree morally that abortion is bad, but legally you don't agree, that means you would like abortion to be illegal, but as long as it's not, you will mouth the words, "It's a legal issue ..." blah blah blah.

It means nothing Chris.

Admit you agree with Trump. He gives you a thrill up your leg, doesn't he?

I think I finally understand Donald Trump

He is not grotesque

He is not a misogynist

He is not vindictive

He is not a bully

We are simply using the wrong set of criteria to render judgment.

He just is the guy who has an instinct for what it takes to win, and that includes (must include, among other things) a beat down of the competition until deterrence is achieved.

This is the only issue in his mind

There are no standards of behavior.

There is no such thing as decency.

There is no such thing as gallantry.

There are no good guys.

There are no bad guys (Thanks, Dave Mason)

Everyone is equal before his consideration.

If you are not an ally you are under suspicion as an enemy (I mean, you are not an ally)

If you are an enemy you must die and be seen to be killed.

This process goes on until no one is left.

The Hill:

Ex-Miss Wisconsin tears up thanking Trump at rally

A Donald Trump supporter who claimed to be Miss Wisconsin 2005 thanked the GOP front-runner in an emotional moment at a Tuesday rally for his help as she struggles with an incurable disease.
She thanked Trump for sending her a handwritten note and said it lifted her spirits after she decided to sign a "Do Not Resuscitate" order as her condition worsened.
She also thanked Trump for the fame that came with her pageant experience, which she said helped her son secure a scholarship.
“I'm here right now to thank you in person because that is my biggest dream," she said.
"Being able to stand on the stage with you in 2005, the outpouring of love that came from that ultimately provided my son when he graduates high school with a full ride to college.”
She repeated multiple times that her son is a Mexican-American and that Trump's generosity helped him.
Trump attempted to convince her she would be ok, before leaving the stage to hug her
“We’re going to be watching your boy, but you’re going to hopefully be around, you aren't going to have anyone watching," he said. "Those doctors are going to be so wrong.”
Various pageant blogs and an online fundraising page from FundAnything, which Trump had invested in, claim that 2005 Miss Wisconsin Melissa Young is very sick.
The fundraising page shows more than $18,000 raised for a college scholarship for Young's son.

A Thought Experiment: Imagine You Are Satan ...


Imagine there really is a Satan.

Satan was an Angel, the most beautiful of all, made by the Creator of the Universe, beloved of God. 

He decided he'd rather not live under God's rule, but instead, would rather overthrow God.

God throws Satan out of heaven, down onto the Earth. Here he finds another created being; Man, whom God created in His Own Image, and whom He, for some inexplicable reason, regards as the Pinnacle of His Creation.

Satan decides he will fight a long war against God. He will win this war - killing Man off one person at a time - by convincing each one that he is NOT the Pinnacle of Creation, but is, instead, worthless and disgusting, made only to be ground into dust.

And for a long time it seems as if Satan's strategy is working. Man, believing he is worthless, sets to war against himself, and any others who look like him, killing one another with wild abandon.

But God fools Satan by providing an end run to victory for Himself, and man, in the form of a Salvation by which man is cleansed of his impurities, his fear, and his self-loathing, so that God can take up residence in the soul of each man on Earth.

Satan is dumbfounded.

NOW, IF YOU WERE SATAN, AND THIS HAD HAPPENED, 

YOU SEE THAT YOU ARE NOW DEFEATED,

UNLESS YOU COME UP WITH THE PERFECT RELIGIOUS ANTIDOTE TO THIS NEW SALVATION? 

WHAT WOULD YOU COME UP WITH?

17 Men Detained, Released After Firing Off Guns, Chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ In Remote Area In California

Allahu Gaybar

Apple Valley is about a 45 minute drive from SAN BERNARDINO.

It's the same general area of Souther California.

From CBS:
APPLE VALLEY (CBSLA.com) — The FBI on Tuesday continued to investigate an incident in which 17 men were detained for reportedly firing off hundreds of rounds in a remote part of Apple Valley. 
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies and an FBI agent responded to the scene Sunday morning and detained the men – reportedly all of Middle Eastern descent – who were camping out in the Deep Creek Hot Springs area Sunday morning, authorities said. 
A 911 caller reported hearing over 100 shots fired and seeing five to seven men wearing turbans and shooting “assault rifles, handguns, and shotguns,” according to a Sheriff’s Department statement. 
A county sheriff’s helicopter located the men walking near a creek with backpacks “and other items”, The Los Angeles Times reported. Officials say the men were cooperative as they were detained and searched. 
Several handguns, a rifle, and a shotgun were found at the scene, but a records check found all the weapons were registered with the exception of the rifle, which reportedly didn’t have a serial number because it was purchased in parts, an FBI spokesperson told The Times. 
Police scanner traffic posted online by the Victor Valley News Group described “a large group of subjects wearing turbans and chanting” at the scene. 
“They were up all night chanting ‘Allah akbar’-type stuff,” an unidentified officer is heard saying on the audio recording.

Brookings Instituion Researchers offer up a Premature Ejaculation

It's Ok, It Happens To All Guys Sometimes

After 9/11 I submitted a manuscript to Foreign Affairs Magazine, “Islam as Government”. My rejection letter from a deputy editor opined there was no way the magazine could publish my piece, in light of the current climate. 
Apparently, the climate has never really changed. 
The 24 March issue of Foreign Affairs features an article by Brookings Institute “researchers” William McCants and Christopher Meserole. In an article distastefully titled, “The French Connection” the authors offer up a premature ejaculation. 
“Our report is still preliminary and hasn’t been vetted well by peers yet. It’s also based on a very small dataset and should be taken cautiously. That said, we went public with our results early because our initial findings suggest a strong relationship, one we can’t fully explain, between Francophone countries and foreign fighter radicalization”, Meserole told France 24.

UN Names Israel As World’s Top Human Rights Violator


From Fox News:
According to the United Nations, the most evil country in the world today is Israel. On March 24, 2016, the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) wrapped up its annual meeting in New York by condemning only one country for violating women’s rights anywhere on the planet – Israel, for violating the rights of Palestinian women. 
On the same day, the U.N. Human Rights Council concluded its month-long session in Geneva by condemning Israel five times more than any other of the 192 UN member states. 
There were five Council resolutions on Israel. One each on the likes of hellish countries like Syria, North Korea and Iran. Libya got an offer of “technical assistance.” 
And countries like Russia, Saudi Arabia and China were among the 95 percent of states that were never mentioned. 
No slander is deemed too vile for the U.N. human rights bodies that routinely listen to highly orchestrated Palestinian versions of the ancient blood libel against the Jews. 
Isn’t it about time that people stopped calling the U.N. a harmless international salon or a bad joke? 
The poison isn’t simply rhetorical. One of the Council resolutions adopted last week launches a worldwide witch-hunt for companies that do business with Israel – as part of an effort to accomplish through economic strangulation what Israel’s enemies have not been able to accomplish on the battlefield. 
The resolution casts a wide net encompassing all companies engaged in whatever the U.N. thinks are business “practices that disadvantage Palestinian enterprises.” 
And the toxicity is self-perpetuating. Acting at the beck and call of Islamic states and their conduit – French Ambassador Elizabeth Laurin and Council President Choi Kyonglim selected Canadian law professor Michael Lynk as the newest U.N. “independent” human rights investigator on Israel. 
Lynk’s qualifications? He has likened Israelis to Nazis, and challenged the legitimacy of the state of Israel starting in 1948 as rooted in “ethnic cleansing.”

Obama Using Federal Money to Fund Anti-Trump Groups


From the Daily Caller:
The Obama administration is supporting several non-profit groups — with federal funding through a major White House initiative — that are part of an organized effort aimed at converting green-card holders into U.S. citizens in order to vote against Donald Trump, a Daily Caller investigation reveals. 
Through an initiative called Networks for Integrating New Americans initiative, which the White House formed in April 2014, the administration has partnered with the National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA), an immigration rights umbrella organization that has denounced Trump’s “hateful rhetoric.” 
In a recent post to its Facebook page, NPNA asserted that green-card holders “have the potential to change America’s electorate” by gaining citizenship. The group and its executive director is also affiliated with one of the leftist groups that helped shut down a Trump rally in Chicago earlier this month.

UPDATE - Convicted Sex Offender Was Behind North Carolina’s Boys-In-The-Girl’s Bathroom Law


I'm shocked, SHOCKED that there are perverts hiding out in girl's bathrooms when it is legal for them to do so.

From Red State:
Back in February, the city council of Charlotte, North Carolina, passed an law that made that city the happy hunting ground of sexual perverts. 
North Carolina’s largest city passed a law Monday allowing transgender people to choose public bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity, which the governor had called a threat to public safety and warned that the General Assembly may step in. 
The Charlotte City Council voted 7-4 to expand protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity, making it the latest frontier in a national debate on how businesses treat gay, lesbian and transgender customers. 
One of the revisions to the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance allows people to choose restrooms corresponding to the gender with which they identify. 
This law is obvious nonsense and if you can’t see the logical outcome, sketchy older men hanging out in women’s rest rooms, you aren’t thinking very clearly. Seattle Parks and Recreation is facing a first-of-a-kind challenge to gender bathroom rules. 
A man undressed in a women’s locker room, citing a new state rule that allows people to choose a bathroom based on gender identity. It was a busy time at Evans Pool around 5:30pm Monday February 8. The pool was open for lap swim. 
According to Seattle Parks and Recreation, a man wearing board shorts entered the women’s locker room and took off his shirt. Women alerted staff, who told the man to leave, but he said “the law has changed and I have a right to be here.” … 
If you need to be convinced of the real purpose this law was pushed, you need look no further than the person who was instrumental in having it passed. 
The former president of Charlotte’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce has resigned after he came under fire from a conservative group, which noted that he is on a sex offender list and questioned his role in supporting the city’s expanded nondiscrimination ordinance. 
Chad Sevearance-Turner had been the president of the chamber, which supported the newly expanded ordinance that gives legal protection for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals. … 
Sevearance-Turner was arrested in 1998, when he was 20, and charged in Cherokee County, S.C., with a “lewd act, committing or attempting a lewd act upon a child under 16.” 
A 2000 story in the Spartanburg Herald-Journal said Sevearance-Turner had been a youth minister at a church in Gaffney. 
A jury there found him guilty of fondling a 15-year-old teenage church member while the boy slept. 
Before he stepped down as chamber president, Sevearance-Turner said the N.C. Values Coalition’s criticism “did not surprise him.” 
He said his conviction had not stopped him from achieving success, such as being chamber president.

HALAL: A TASTE OF TERROR The growing alarm over where the funds of the multi-billion-dollar industry end up


From Front Page Magazine:
"Beware! Halal food funds terrorists.” Stickers with this slogan were sold in July by a candidate of the Australian political party One Nation, and condemned by the country’s Multicultural Affairs Minister Glen Elmes as "offensive, grotesque and designed to inflame hatred." 
He added: "People are encouraged to put the stickers on food products in supermarkets, which isn't just racial discrimination, it's also vandalism." 
What the sticker says, though, is apparently taking place in the USA and Canada where Campbell’s Soup and other companies have paid the Hamas-linked Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) for their halal certification, in France, where it is claimed that 60% of halal food is controlled by organizations belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood and the so-called “halal tax” is the organization's main source of funding. 
In the UK, major supermarket chain Morrisons is not only indirectly but even directly giving money to the Islamic National Zakat Foundation. I’ll explain what that is about in a minute.

Female Arab journalist asks, 'What if Christians were suicide bombers?'


From the Christian Examiner:
DOHA, Qatar (Christian Examiner) – A female Arab journalist who lives in Qatar has penned a bold article that asks Muslims in the Middle East how they would respond if Christian suicide bombers struck their public markets, collapsed their tall buildings or tried to force Muslims to convert to Christianity. 
Liberal Saudi journalist Nadine Al-Budair writes in Kuwait's Al-Rai newspaper that Arab countries have refused to address the problem of terrorism and have yet to create a climate that matches the liberal, humanitarian climate of the West. 
She asked Muslims to consider what their world would be like if Christians the world over had responded to Muslims the way terrorists have spread radical Islam. "Imagine a Western youth coming here and carrying out a suicide mission in one of our public squares in the name of the Cross. 
Imagine that two skyscrapers had collapsed in some Arab capital, and that an extremist Christian group, donning millennium-old garb, had emerged to take responsibility for the event, while stressing its determination to revive Christian teachings or some Christian rulings, according to its understanding, to live like in the time [of Jesus] and his disciples, and to implement certain edicts of Christian scholars," Al-Budair writes in a translation of the editorial provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). 
Al-Budair asks her readers to imagine Christian priests calling Muslims infidels over loudspeakers and chanting that God has demanded their deaths. She also writes they should also consider what would happen if Arab countries had provided Westerners with entry visas, benefits, modern healthcare only to have them turn on their hosts to kill them in the name of religion – likely a reference to the San Bernardino attacks carried out in December 2015. 
"These images are far from the mind of the Arab or Muslim terrorist because he is certain, or used to be certain, that the West is humanitarian and that the Western citizen would refuse to respond [in this manner] to the barbaric crimes [of the Muslim terrorists]," Al-Budair writes. 
"Despite the terrorist acts of Al-Qaeda and ISIS, we [Muslims] have been on [Western] soil for years without any fear or worry. Millions of Muslim tourists, immigrants, students, and job seekers [travel to the West] with the doors open [to them], and the streets safe [for them]." 
She writes, however, that tolerance for Muslims is fading in the West because Muslims refuse to confront the problem of Islamic extremism. 
As evidence of this, she points to the presidential campaign of New York billionaire Donald Trump, who in a "scary declaration," she writes, "demanded to bar Muslims from entering the U.S." 
Al-Budair wrote that Muslims do not have the right to condemn statements like those made by Trump without addressing the failures of Arab educational systems which teach jihad and hatred of the West in madrassas (Islamic schools) around the world. 
Al-Budair claims Muslim nations should apologize to the rest of the world. Much of what she said about education in the Middle East was voiced a year ago by Jordan's Queen Rania in addressing the United Arab Emirages UAE Government Summit in Dubai. Al-Budair isn't confident, however, that anyone will heed her call for tolerance. 
"After all these farces, some Arab analyst comes out touting a pathetic message, and reciting the same words in his friend's ear that he has repeated millions of times: 'Those [Muslims who commit terrorism] do not represent Islam, but only themselves.' 
"This is all we [know how to do] – absolve [ourselves] of guilt," she wrote. Al-Budair, who describes herself, as a feminist, last year encouraged Muslim women to flee their "benighted countries" for the safety, security and opportunity of the West.
AND THEN THERE'S THIS:

Boko Haram Using Kidnapped Christian Girls As Suicide Bombers


From Fox News:
A suspected suicide bomber, who was intercepted in Cameroon Friday before she could blow herself, reportedly told authorities that she was one of the Chibok schoolgirls who were captured by Boko Haram in 2014. 
Two girls were carrying explosives in the village of Limani in northern Cameroon before being stopped by local defense forces, according to the UK Daily Telegraph. The village had been the target of suicide bombings in recent months. 
The girls were handed over to Cameron soldiers who are part of a multi-national African force that was created to take on the Islamist terrorist group. 
Boko Haram militants shocked the world in April 2014 by kidnapping 270 girls from the Nigerian town of Chibok. The militants stormed a school and loaded them onto trucks. Around 50 of them had escaped immediately after the raid. 
“One of them indeed declared that she is one of the Chibok hostages,” government administrator Raymond Roksdo said, according to The Telegraph. 
“She is around 15. We are now verifying, because on the Nigerian side they have the names and photos of these girls.” 
Two anonymous government sources also told the UK Daily Telegraph that the girl had claimed to be one of the kidnapped girls. 
“We need a few days to be able to confirm this information. We have to debrief all the men who were present and interrogate the two girls before we can say anything,” one of the sources told the paper.

ISIS Crucifies Priest On Good Friday


From the Daily Mail:
The Indian Catholic priest kidnapped by ISIS-linked terrorists in Yemen earlier this month was crucified on Good Friday, it has been claimed.

The terrorists reportedly carried out the heinous murder on Good Friday, after threatening to do so earlier in the week, according to the Archbishop of Vienna

Top Jihadist : ‘Brussels, Paris attacks Are Rehearsals for ‘Big’ Attack Inside U.S’


From Breitbart:
TEL AVIV – The deadly terrorist attacks in Brussels last week and in Paris last November are dress rehearsals for a coming “big” attack inside the United States, a leading Islamic State-allied militant claimed in an exclusive interview. 
Abu al-Ayna al-Ansari, a Salafist movement senior official in the Gaza Strip, made the claim in a pre-recorded, hour-long interview to air in full on Sunday on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” the popular weekend talk radio program. 
Klein doubles as Breitbart’ssenior investigative reporter and Jerusalem bureau chief. Ansari is a well-known Gazan Salafist jihadist allied with Islamic State ideology. 
During the interview with Klein, Ansari seemed to be speaking as an actual IS member, repeatedly using the pronoun “we” when referring to IS and even seemingly making declarations on behalf of IS. IS has been reluctant to officially declare its presence in Gaza for fear of a Hamas clampdown, but the group is known to be active in the coastal enclave and Ansari is a suspected IS leader. 
IS-aligned militants have taken responsibility for recent rocket fire from Gaza aimed at Israel. Klein asked Ansari whether IS maintains cells inside the U.S. and if the terrorist group is “planning anything in America.” 
Ansari responded: 
Aaron, the battle with America is a very long one, a very tough one, a very hard one. America has a black record with the mujahedeen, and this black record will not be purified but with blood, and lots of blood. Only blood will cleanse what America did to the mujahedeen. 
And I can confirm that our leadership made it very clear that what happened in Paris, what happened in Brussels was only a small rehearsal before the big thing that will happen in America. This is the commitment; this is the engagement of our leadership to the mujahedeen. 
I cannot give details and the truth is that I don’t know the small details – how many agents we have and where we have them. This depends on our leaders, the Caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and the general military commander, Abu Omar al-Shishani. They will decide when and where to strike in the United States. But I can tell you that when we are in touch with our different components, with the leaders of the Islamic State. 
They confirm, they make it very sure and very clear that it is only a question of time when there will be a strike in America. And as I said before, what you saw in Paris, what you saw in Brussels will be only a small rehearsal in comparison with what will happen in the United States. 
Ansari’s reference to senior Islamic State commander Abu Omar al-Shishani as alive and active comes after the Pentagon announced earlier this month that a U.S. airstrike on March 4 near al-Shaddadi, Syria targeted al-Shishani. The Pentagon did not make an official statement about whether al-Shashani was killed in the strike, but it told reporters on background that he was “likely killed.” IS has denied that Shishani was killed.

Delusional: John Kaysick Calls for Ted Cruz and Donald Trump to "Consolidate Behind Me"

GOPe Ass-Schlurper

From National Review (who actually probably agrees with this shitpile):
Donald Trump and Ted Cruz should suspend their campaigns and “consolidate” behind John Kasich, John Kasich suggested this morning during an appearance on Meet the Press. 
“Ted Cruz’s campaign is repeatedly called for you to get out,” host Chuck Todd said. ”Saying a vote for you is a vote for Donald Trump. … If you thought your position in this race strengthened Trump, would you get out?” 
“Chuck, I’m beating Hillary by 11 points,” Kasich replied. ”I’m the only one that can win in the fall. And as you noticed the narrative over the last week has been what is wrong with the party. Kasich’s the guy that can win the general. Some people have said Kasich would be the best president.” 
“Get out for what?” he continued. “If I’d gotten out Trump would be the nominee, he would have won Ohio. And frankly, we’ll win some districts in Wisconsin. We will move to Pennsylvania where I’m basically in a statistical tie with Trump.” 
“And when we go to New York and everywhere else, we’re going to pick up delegates,” Kasich predicted. 
“It’s absurd, it’s absurd. You know, if you really want, let them consolidate behind me because frankly I’m the one that can win in the fall. And I’m the one that can get the crossover votes.”

Even Israeli leftists admit 2-state solution is unworkable

Some leftists are beginning to recognize reality:
US President Barack Obama and much of the international community blame Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the lack of a peace deal with the Palestinians. But even leading left-wing politicians admit it’s more complicated than that, and that a two-state solution is simply no longer viable.

“We have reached the point in time when there is no feasibility for the two-state solution,” said Zionist Union (Labor) MK Ayelet Nahmias-Verbin during a visit to the Etzion Bloc of Jewish settlements that she insisted “is a consensus in my party.”
Unfortunately, she still falls back on a weak position:
Still, even without birthing a Palestinian state and while retaining control of large Jewish settlement blocs, Nahmias-Verbin believes Israel must find a way to separate from the Palestinians.

“We need to create a security solution and that for my party the separation is that solution,” she told Israel National News.
If they cannot let go of this separation nonsense, then they truly have no faith in their ability to influence any community for the better. Why not ponder a better idea like differentiating between Muslims from Christians? I'm sure some of the latter would be very glad if they did that.

In Wake of Brussels Jihad, Obama Recommits to His Priorities: Will Bring In 100,000 ‘Refugees’, Create ‘Openness To Muslims’, Whether You Like It Or Not



My question is this:

What does one thing have to do with the other?

Why does the idea of taking in another 100,000 Muslims follow - in Obama's thought processes - from the idea that Muslims just killed more Americans?

If an escaped prisoner just raped your wife, I would never go to your home and talk to you about ramping up our Prison Ministry down at the local Church.

But that is exactly what Obama is doing here.

'Hallelujah Chorus' from Handel's Messiah


John 20 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Empty Tomb

20 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.”
Peter therefore went out, and the other disciple, and were going to the tomb. So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first. And he, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and believed. For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead. 10 Then the disciples went away again to their own homes.

Mary Magdalene Sees the Risen Lord

11 But Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb. 12 And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13 Then they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?”
She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.”
14 Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?”
She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, “Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away.”
16 Jesus said to her, “Mary!”
She turned and said to Him,[a] “Rabboni!” (which is to say, Teacher).
17 Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’”
18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord,[b] and that He had spoken these things to her.

The Apostles Commissioned

19 Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled,[c] for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”

Seeing and Believing

24 Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
26 And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” 27 Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.”
28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”
29 Jesus said to him, “Thomas,[d] because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

That You May Believe

30 And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.

Fingerprint File

The Rolling Stones


Fingerprint file, you get me down 
You keep me running 
Know my way around. Yes, you do, child 
Fingerprint file, you bring me down 
Keep me running 
You keep me on the ground 
Know my moves 
Way ahead of time 
Listening to me 
On your satellite 

Feeling followed 
Feeling tagged 
Crossing water 
Trying to wipe my tracks 

And there's some little jerk in the FBI 
A keepin' papers on me six feet high 
It gets me down, it gets me down, it gets me down 

You better watch out 
On your telephone 
Wrong number 
They know you ain't home 

And there's some little jerk in the FBI 
A keepin' papers on me six feet high 
It gets me down, it gets me down, it gets me down 

Who's the man on the corner; that corner over there 
I don't know. Well, you better lay low. Watch out 

Keep on the look out 
Electric eyes 
Rats on the sell out 
Who gonna testify 
You know my habits 
Way a head of time 
Listening to me 
On your satellite 

And there's some little jerk in the FBI 
A keepin' papers on me six feet high 
It gets me down, it gets me down, it gets me down 
It gets me down 

Hello, baby, mm-hmm 
Ah, yeah, you know we ain't, we ain't talkin' alone 
Who's listening? Well I don't really know 
But you better tell the SIS to keep out of sight 
'Cause I know they takin' pictures on the ultraviolet light 
Yes, uh huh, yeah, but these days it's all secrecy; no privacy 
Shoot first, that' s right... you know 
Bye bye. 
Right now somebody is listening to...... you 
Keeping their eyes peeled...... on you 
Mmm, mmm, what a price, what a price to pay 
All right. Good night, sleep tight

Brussels: "March Against Fear" Cancelled Because of Fear

Maybe, If We Pretend We're Dead, 
The Muslims Will Leave Us Alone

It's not even ironic, when you know it's going to happen.

Maybe all the Metros and their hairy armpitted bitches can go home and listen to Imagine in the safety of their own home.

From AFP:
The organisers of a “March Against Fear” planned for Sunday to mark the Brussels terror attacks said they had cancelled the event after the authorities asked them to do so because of security fears. 
“We understand this request. The security of our citizens is an absolute priority. We join the authorities in proposing a delay and ask people not to come this Sunday,” the organisers said in a statement on Saturday. 
The authorities earlier asked for the march to be put off, perhaps for several weeks, to allow the police to concentrate their resources on the investigation into the attacks which left 31 dead and 300 wounded. 
“We invite the citizens tomorrow to not have this manifestation,” Interior Minister Jan Jambon said, speaking in English. 
In an earlier statement, the organisers said the march planned for Sunday was meant to show that Brussels and the country at large refused to be intimidated by terrorism and that everyone stood together.
