Islamic State Is Near Defeat in Iraq ... And We Will Not Merely Drive Them Out ... WE'LL KILL THEM ALL!

"KILL 'EM ALL"

“We are seeing the end of the fake Daesh state,” Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Twitter, using another name for Islamic State. “The liberation of Mosul proves that. We will not relent,” he added. 
Thursday’s recapture of the ruined Nouri mosque came a week after Islamic State blew it up as Iraqi forces closed in, reducing to rubble the 12th-century building and its 150-foot minaret. The mosque gained notoriety when Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi spoke there three years ago and declared himself the head of a caliphate, or religious empire. 
Col. Ryan Dillon, the Baghdad-based spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition battling Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, said that Iraqi forces on Thursday cut a wedge in the middle of the area held by Islamic State, seizing the Nouri mosque and cornering the few hundred remaining fighters in half of Mosul’s Old City on one side, and an area around a hospital that has been a stronghold for the group on the other side.
And rather than simply drive ISIS fighters out and into their next stronghold — the practice of the previous Administration — U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis has a plan to kill them all.

Project Veritas Captures CNN Producer Explaining That American Voters Are "Stupid As Shit"



From Project Veritas:
Project Veritas’ newest video from the American Pravda: CNN series exposes Jimmy Carr, the Associate Producer for CNN’s New Day attacking President Donald Trump and admitting that CNN has a left-leaning bias. 
When asked by an undercover journalist if CNN is impartial, Carr plainly responded, “In theory.” 
He then continued to talk about CNN’s views on President Trump: 
“On the inside, we all recognize he is a clown that he is hilariously unqualified for this. He’s really bad at this and that he does not have America’s best interests. We recognize he’s just fucking crazy.” 
He continues to attack Trump personally, instead of focusing on his policy: 
“He’s not actually a Republican. He just adopted that because that was the party he thought he could win in. He doesn’t believe anything that these people believe. The man is on his third wife. I guarantee you he’s paid for abortions. He doesn’t give a shit about abortion. He doesn’t care about gay marriage.” 
He also attacked Kellyanne Conway, stating that she “looks like she got hit with a shovel.”
Heh.

And, if you watch CNN, presumably, it inoculates you against being "stupid as shit."

When a Gay Playwright Discovers Islamic Jihad


From Robert Spencer at PJM:
Many people have called attention to the plight of gays in the Islamic world, and the death penalty that Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, mandates for them. But it is one thing to provide facts, and quite another, much more compelling thing to tell a story. 
In his new novel The Alhambra, Bruce Bawer tells a story of the reality of Islam in Europe, for gays and everyone else, that should open a great many eyes that have until now remained resolutely closed. 
Bawer is the author of the 1997 book Stealing Jesus: How Fundamentalism Betrays Christianity -- an eloquent, impassioned rebuke to the judgmental fundamentalism in which, Bawer contended, all too many Christians place adherence to dogma, in particular that of the sinfulness of homosexual activity, above the demands of Christian charity. 
The following year he moved to Europe, where he thought he would find prevailing more tolerant attitudes toward gay rights, which he did -- until Europe’s rapidly increasing Muslim population began to change that. 
In 2006, Bawer published While Europe Slept: How Radical Islam is Destroying the West from Within, and in 2009 its follow-up, Surrender: Appeasing Islam, Sacrificing Freedom. 
In them, he warned of how official appeasement of Europe’s Muslims was impinging upon the freedoms that Europeans had hitherto enjoyed, and would continue to do so. Islamic law has a vision of women’s rights, gay rights, and more that is diametrically opposed to Western principles of human rights, and these two radically contrasting visions would inevitably come into ever-greater conflict. 
Nothing changed, of course. The immigration rates grew, and the appeasement accelerated. Now Bawer has written a novel, illustrating in a thriller exactly what he has been sounding the alarm about. 
Steve Disch is an American playwright who relocates to Amsterdam, where he expresses his relief to finally be away from the influence of the religious right, which he says is all-pervasive, even in Hollywood. 
But in Amsterdam, even with the religious right far away, all is not well. He has several unpleasant encounters with Muslims, including being mugged by one, and one of his Dutch friends advises him: “Get a Koran. Read it.” 
After he learns a bit more, he asks a Dutch friend: “I mean, is this a good thing? These ideas coming here?” The Dutchman answers: “It’s their culture.” Steve is incredulous: 
“But what about your culture? What about the liberal Netherlands? And gay rights? Doesn’t this represent a threat to everything you believe in? And have worked for?”

Did Joe Scarborough Murder a Young Woman Who Worked In His Office When He Was a Congressman?

Do I Look Like I Could Murder Anyone?

From Information Liberation:
While the media was obsessed with Chandra Levy, another congressional staffer was found dead in then-representative and current MSNBC talk-show host Joe Scarborough's office. 
Unlike Gary Condit, Scarborough got a free ride from the press. In the morning of July 20, 2001, the body of Lori Klausutis, who had worked as an aide to Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough for approximately two years, was found in Scarborough's Fort Walton Beach, Florida, office. 
There were no witnesses to Klausutis's death. According to Anna Dobbins, a producer at WEAR-TV, Joe was on the phone with the local ABC affiliate in Pensacola within three hours of the discovery of the body, and before the family was notified, to say that "a young woman had died in his office and that she had a complicated medical history, specifically surrounding 'stroke and epilepsy.'" 
The congressman and his advisor, Mick Serrano, made similar calls to two other local media outlets within hours of the body's discovery. 
According to Dobbins and others, about a week later, after the Klausutis family wrote an excoriating letter to a local paper, Serrano called back to ask that they stop reporting the "complicated health history." 
Joe, they were now correctly told, had spoken in error. 
Klausutis-a marathon runner, 28 years old and happily married-had been in great shape. Her "complicated health" began only on the night that she died, and its "history" surfaced primarily because of Joe's misinformation. 
 Lori Klausutis
The nebulous circumstances surrounding Klausutis's death were further compounded during her body's postmortem exam. Michael Berkland, the medical examiner assigned to perform the autopsy, quickly released a statement to the press indicating that there were no signs of trauma to the body or any indication of foul play. 
Later, however, he admitted the body had "a scratch and a bruise." 
Berkland, it must be noted, has a less than professional record. He was fired from his position as medical examiner in Missouri for making false statements and eventually lost the right to practice medicine in that state (see sidebar). 
Still, Berkland concluded in the final autopsy report that Klausutis's heart had failed. 
Moreover, by failing to officially close the investigation, long after they had ceased to interview witnesses, the police prevented the public from learning any facts about Klausutis's death. 
Only when the autopsy report was released (and that occurred only because the editor in chief of the Northwest Florida Daily News Ralph Routon's editorial demanded its issuance) did those willing to exercise their rights under Florida's Sunshine Law learn the extent of Lori's injuries. 
The autopsy report revealed that Lori had suffered two skull fractures and an additional wound. 
A 71/4-inch crack all but spanned the top of her head, from right temple to left. 
As a likely consequence of that blow, blood poured in from a steadily pumping heart to form a fist-sized hematoma at the left temple. 
There were separate 11/2-inch eggshell fractures, essentially pulverizing the bone, deep inside the skull behind the right ear. 
The back of her head was bashed, and her lungs were filled with bloody foam, suggesting that she took a relatively long time to die. 
In the final autopsy report, Berkland wrote off all those devastating injuries to heart failure. 
According to Berkland, Klausutis had fainted from a weak heart and hit her head on the desk, an unlikely scenario considering the massive damage to the victim's skull.
THERE'S A LOT MORE, SO GO READ THE REST.

Given all this information, it seems to me Mike Brezinski had better listen, and not talk back to Joe Scarborough.

Then again, he probably didn't do it. He's probably a really nice guy in real life. 

POSTSCRIPT:

On May 29, 2003, Scarborough appeared on Don Imus's radio show. While complimenting Scarborough on his sense of humor, Imus said, "Don't be afraid to be funny, because you are funny. I asked you why you aren't in Congress. You said that you had sex with the intern, and then you had to kill her." Scarborough laughed and replied, "Yeah, well, what are you gonna do?"

CNN Tries To Move Forward After Its Latest Humiliation

From Town Hall

“Ladies, gentlemen, and non-binary beings who refuse to be forced into one or more specific genders,” began CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker, employing the network’s prescribed group salutation. “I have gathered you all today here in the CNN newsroom to discuss this Anthony Scaramucci Russia story we retracted and how it has had a negative impact on our network’s sterling reputation for journalistic integrity and objectivity. Hey, pay attention! Stop laughing!”

The room quieted down. Even Don Lemon looked up from the bar, where he was mixing a cosmopolitan.

“Listen, people….,” Zucker began.

“I identify as an otherkin and that’s humanocentric!” shouted a producer dressed in a bright blue fox costume. The network was rightfully proud of its “a-furry-mative action” outreach to the marginalized furry and brony communities.

Zucker sighed. “Before I go on, I just want to make sure that O’Keefe guy isn’t secretly taping us again. You’re the sharpest, keenest investigative journalists in the business – any sign of him?”

“Nope, he’s totally not here,” replied a voice from the audience, a young white man dressed like Superfly.

 “Great. Now this Scaramucci story was a big problem, and not just because we got caught. As you know, Russia is ratings gold, but if we keep coming up empty we’ll leave our audience as unsatisfied as a woman married to a liberal man,” Zucker explained, using an analogy his audience could relate to. “We just can’t keep reporting shaky Russia stories about billionaires based on single, anonymous sources that turn out to be fake news.”

“So … avoid slandering billionaires? Maybe focus on rodeo clowns and so forth?” suggested Jim Acosta.

“Exactly,” replied Zucker. “Don’t do this kind of thing to people who buy their lawyers in bulk! I’m not saying pick on people who can’t fight back against a giant media company but, you know, try and pick on people who can’t fight back against a giant media company.”

A cheerful voice from someone in the front row cried out: “I got a new puppy! His name is Woofy!”

“Yes, Chris, you’ve already told us all about Woofy several times,” sighed Zucker.

“Woofy likes to bark at squirrels, and my brother is governor!”

“That’s terrific, Chris. Someone, get him his fidget spinner. Anyway, starting now, we’re instituting new policies for handling Russia stories. Stop groaning! This important! From now on, we’re going to need your Russia stories to all have an element of truth.”
The room erupted into chaos.

“What the hell?” screeched Wolf Blitzer. “Preposterous!”

“Wolf, your name is sort of like my puppy Woofy’s!” said Chris Cuomo. “Sort of.”

“Never!” snorted Christiane Amanpour, who had been annoying Jake Tapper because her enormous pink gyno hat was blocking his view.

“Look at it spin!” piped up Chris Cuomo between delighted giggles.

Jim Acosta stood up and adjusted his tie. “I want to register my outrage and disapproval of this hateful attack on the free press in the strongest possible terms!”

“Oh, knock it off, Jimmy. There’s no camera here,” Zucker said. “From now on, your anonymous sources have to actually exist. That’s final. I’m sorry people – calm down! – but you can’t quote sources who don’t exist.”

From the back, Don Lemon finished his drink and howled, “The voices tell me MANY THINGS!”

“Look,” said Jim Sciutto. “Like my friend Don, I deeply believe that invisible voices in our heads can be legitimate news sources. Especially if a different voice in our head confirms what the first voice told us.”

“But don’t you understand,” stuttered an indignant Brian Stelter. “Don’t you know that democracy will die in darkness if you impose arbitrary rules on us that limit our ability to report things that never happened?”

“Look, I know this represents a sea change in how CNN operates, but there’s a lot of heat on us right now,” said Zucker. “Personally, I’m still heartbroken that we were unable to go forward with our plans for CNN Kidz Newz Nite With Kathy Griffin.”
“Kathy is a saint and she was robbed!” yelled Don Lemon, who staggered up the aisle, pausing to “accidentally” spill his fresh cosmo on Jake Tapper.

“Hey!” shouted Tapper. “That suit cost more than your pec implants!”

“Get out of my head!” screamed Lemon, who began sobbing. He’d been an emotional train wreck since the defeat of his friend Hillary, who he had steadfastly defended against all sorts of awful people who insisted on telling the truth about her.
“Settle!” howled Zucker. “We are journalists! We are all about our sacred duty as reporters to tell the truth to our viewers in an objective and professional manner! And also ratings. Sweet, sweet, life-giving ratings.”

“Sometimes daddy used to come home late at night with his special friends and they were all dirty and had shovels. They always took the cannoli,” Chris Cuomo said to John Berman, who got up and moved down three chairs.

“All right, all right, let’s move on to solutions. Cooper, your eyebrows are fine, so put down that mirror and pay attention! Now, we’ve had some troubles, but we’re going to come back stronger. The consensus is that the best way to do that is by leveraging exciting, diverse talents and marginalized minority voices, like Shaun King…”

“You want to tell him?” Jake Tapper whispered to Brooke Baldwin.

“Nope.”

“And Sally Kohn,” said Zucker. “Their smart, common sense takes on current issues will help reach out to red America on whatever issues those hicks care about.”

Just then a young production assistant with “#Resist” tattooed across xis forehead rushed over to the network president and handed him a note. He read it and furrowed his brow.

“People, listen up! Trump just tweeted ‘This Russia fake news is fake. Failing CNN is failing. Sad!’ Clearly, he’s hiding something, and I’m guessing its collusion. Put up the ‘TREASON WATCH’ chyron and someone get Louise Mensch on the phone! This is not a drill – we’re flooding the zone! CNN is back!”

The crowd broke up as people rushed to their places. And while a producer led Chris Cuomo by his soft hand to the anchor chair, he was heard to say, “I got a new puppy! His name is Woofy!”

Fuck the (Cudahy) Police: Trump Supporters Arrested After Illegal Aliens Physically Attack Them!



I can not fucking believe this story. God damn it, this shit has to stop!

From Gateway Pundit:
A group of Trump supporters showed up to the Cudahy, California city council meeting to voice their disdain over the city’s recent motions to become a “sanctuary city”. 
After the meeting, several illegal alien supporters confronted the actual American citizens and began to verbally accost and physically attack them, all while Los Angeles County deputies stood by doing nothing. 
Up the block, at a gas station, a car that contained friends of Congressional candidate and current Cudahy city councilman Omar Navarro was being charged at by a throng of illegal aliens and their supporters. 
The driver, fearing his safety and the safety of his passengers, drew his legally owned and concealed gun. 
The mob of illegals do the expected lamebrain stunt and move in to surround the car (what brainiacs!). 
Police quickly moved in and arrested them….. The guy defending himself and his occupants, while allowing the mob of illegals to continue to run rampant. 
Apparently all four people in the car were arrested, for some reason.
THERE'S A LOT MORE, SO GO READ IT.

Islamic State Sympathizer Shouting “Allahu Akbar” Vandalizes Prominent French Monument


From Sebastien at Gateway Pundit:
Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ to passers-by, Tuesday afternoon, an Islamic State sympathizer vandalized the Monument aux Girondins, a prominent city landmark in the heart of Bordeaux before being arrested in a police operation which saw the immediate area shut down for fear of a terrorist attack. 
Road traffic and tramways came to a halt around Place des Quinconces and its historic column and fountains monument, as the area, popular with tourists to Bordeaux, was sealed off. During the police operation, a 34-year-old suspect, previously known to police, was arrested and a sweep by the bomb squad was undertaken before the cordon was lifted. 
Around the base of the monument, the Arabic words for ‘idolatry’ and ‘infidels’ had been painted in tall red lettering and are still visible. 
A backpack left at the base of the monument was investigated for weapons and explosives. ... the backpack containing only a tablet and a copy of the Koran. 
GO READ THE WHOLE THING.

My guess is, if the French don't deport this man, or imprison him for life, he will end up going Full Frontal Jihad on them.

EU facing new migrant chaos as summer sees record numbers attempt to cross Med


EU facing new migrant chaos as summer sees record numbers attempt to cross Med
 “FEARS that Europe is facing a new migrant crisis are growing after record numbers were caught trying to reach the mainland. 
More than 10,000 asylum seekers were rescued from the Mediterranean in just three days this week, with hundreds more crossing into Greece from Turkey. 
The 400 Turkish border crossings suggest that a deal struck between Brussels and Ankara – for migrants to be turned around before reaching the EU – is breaking down. 
The figures also raise the spectre of the chaos witnessed in 2015 when the number of migrants seeking asylum was at its highest in 25 years. 
The surge in economic migrants searching for a route into Europe – and a new life in Britain – has put UK border officials on high alert…”

"Anti-Journalism" Is The New ISLAMOPHOBIA: CNN Trying to Create a New MythSlur To Brand Critics of Their Fake News Service

"Anti-Journalism" Is The New Islamophobia 

From Ace of Spades:
Sissy CNN Media Reporter: Critics of CNN Are Bigots We're Now Calling "Extreme Anti-Journalists" 
Yes, of course. 
It was time to invent an "Islamophobia"-style slur to brand critics of genuine abuses with. 
Before we get to this fat little girl's attempt at a new PC slur to control people, let's review some of the media's recent work, CNN's especially: 
This liberal journalist freaks out over Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' mention of a "barrage of fake news," shrilly screeching that she was "inflaming" people against reporters, which I guess makes them Feel Unsafe. 
Chris Cuomo then welcomed this sad little girl on to CNN and told her she's always got a Safe Space there. Also in that clip, Chris Cuomo's co-bimbo said that journalists were now operating in a "war zone." 
(Wah wah wah) Chris, at what point does this become dangerous and I'm not just talking about dangerous as in tearing at the social fabric, I'm talking about dangerous in that a journalist gets hurt, because I can tell you working overseas in war zones, people are emboldened by the actions of this administration, emboldened by the all-out sort of declaration of war on the media, if I'm getting it in the neck, Chris I can only imagine what someone like you is dealing with. At what point does this become reckless or irresponsible, Chris? (Wah wah wah)

ISIS Fighters Returning To Europe Are Struggling To Get Jobs

"These Jihadists Just Need Them Some Jobs, 
Then They Won't Jihad No More"

It's a shocker (to Lefties) that Employers wouldn't want to hire them.

I'm sure the Government could put them on salary to push paper around.

From the New York Post:
Being a terrorist apparently doesn’t look good on a resume. Members of ISIS are fleeing the Middle East and quietly returning to Europe in the attempt to rejoin society, but there’s just one problem: None of them can find jobs. 
A daily newspaper in Sweden, known as the Expressen, interviewed several former jihadists recently and spoke to them about how difficult it was to get hired. 
“I just want to forget everything,” explained 27-year-old Walad Yousef, who was one of the 150 fighters to return home to Sweden in recent months. 
“I apply for a lot of jobs, but I can’t get any because my pictures are out there,” he said, according to the Daily Caller.

Erdogan Seizes 50 Syriac Churches And Monasteries, Declares Them Turkish State Property


From PJM:
The Turkish Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet) has seized control of at least 50 Syriac churches, monasteries and cemeteries in Mardin province, media sources are reporting from Turkey. 
The Turkish-Armenian daily Agos reports: “After Mardin became a Metropolitan Municipality, its villages were officially turned into neighbourhoods as per the law and attached to the provincial administration. Following the legislative amendment introduced in late 2012, the Governorate of Mardin established a liquidation committee.  
The Liquidation Committee started to redistribute in the city, the property of institutions whose legal entity had expired. 
The transfer and liquidation procedures are still ongoing. In 2016, the Transfer, Liquidation and Redistribution Committee of Mardin Governorate transferred to primarily the Treasury as well as other relevant public institutions numerous churches, monasteries, cemeteries and other assets of the Syriac community in the districts of Mardin. The Mor Gabriel Monastery Foundation appealed to the decision yet the liquidation committee rejected their appeal last May. 
The churches, monasteries and cemeteries whose ownerships were given to the Treasury were then transferred to the Diyanet. Inquiries of the Mor Gabriel Monastery Foundation revealed that dozens of churches and monasteries had been transferred to the Treasury first and then allocated to the Diyanet. And the cemeteries have been transferred to the Metropolitan Municipality of Mardin. 
The maintenance of some of the churches and monasteries are currently being provided by the Mor Gabriel Monastery Foundation and they are opened to worship on certain days. Similarly, the cemeteries are still actively used by the Syriac community who visits them and performs burial procedures. 
The Syriacs have appealed to the Court for the cancellation of the decision.” “We started to file lawsuits and in the meantime our enquiries continued” said Kuryakos Ergün, the Chairman of Mor Gabriel Monastery Foundation. Ergün said they would appeal to the court for the cancellation of nearly 30 title deed registries.

FRACKING AWESOME: How The Shale Oil Revolution Sends Multiple Orgasms Through The American Economy


Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal well drilling have given American companies access to vast new reserves of oil and gas, and have dramatically increased the production of hydrocarbons here in the United States. Since 2010, the U.S. has added roughly 5 million barrels of oil per day, and natural gas production is up roughly 33 percent over that same time period. 
The effects of this energy revolution have been felt the world over—they’ve brought gasoline prices down for American drivers while remaking the global oil market. But here in the U.S., they’ve been an enormous boon to an industry most Americans are likely unfamiliar with: petrochemicals. As the WSJ reports, cheap petrochemical feedstocks (a byproduct of oil and gas drilling) are pushing the U.S. petrochemical industry to new heights. . . . 
That’s a lot of money, and it’s a staggering number of jobs. This is one of the unheralded consequences of this new energy renaissance that the U.S. finds itself in, and it’s creating a rosier economic outlook for years to come. 
This big win for America has also produced a number of losers, namely Middle Eastern petrostates who in years past had looked to petrochemicals as an important industry to help them diversify away from simply pumping and exporting crude oil and natural gas. But thanks to cheap shale-sourced petrochemical feedstocks, the lion’s share of new investment money in the industry is heading the United States’ way. Once again, shale is lifting the U.S. up even as it puts petrostates in peril.

UPDATED AT BOTTOM OF POST - Pretty, Well-Spoken American Muslim Girl Tells The Truth About Islam

Is this young lady a "Moderate Muslim"?
Her immediate reply that she would "kill" her sister could easily be dismissed as the loose talk of a teenager. And to some extent, it probably is. 

However, it is not easy to take it as merely loose talk when one takes into consideration that the penalty for Apostasy (leaving Islam) under Sharia is DEATH. 

And, in fact, there are numerous Honor Killings (people murdered by members of their family) that take place throughout the world, and even in the West, many in cases where young people have converted away from Islam.

From The Last English Prince:

There is an overall lack of awareness regarding how some Muslims regard the concept of conscience. 
With regard to extra-judicial actions in the name of a God, this young adult Muslim woman may not be eloquent in her responses. But she does, in fact, elucidate what is both precedent and modern practice of Islamic jurisprudence. 
“I will kill her” 
When speaking of “many signs” the young lady is giving a nod to the word ayat, which means “sign” and comparable to what we would note as a “verse” in our scripture. 
It is the micro-format of the Qur’an, along with the broader format of Surah (chapter) and a concept known as Juz, which divides the Qur’an into thirty sections – primarily for the task of reading the complete Qur’an during Ramadan. 
The lady states “Qu’ran Kareem” and the latter word is one of the ninety-nine names of Allah (with one name unknown). It means “generous”. 
The Anglosphere should retain great wariness in a world of uncertainty regarding Islam as ideological nightmare. 
As for The Last English Prince, I am quite certain of how Islamic ideology can effect conscience. Apostates are to be placed in isolation, allowed three days to repent, and then if they do not recant they are to be killed. 
These rulings from the Islamic Caliphates are on my shelves, complete with examples. 
There is a Surah which also addresses the issue of independence from Islam. It is addressed specifically to the “Unbelievers”. 
Please note the tafseer (commentary) for ayat 13-37 and the reference to Jews, etc.

Record Label Drops Band, DREAM MACHINE, Over Its ‘Ugly Opinions’ on Safe Spaces, Feminism and Immigration


Castle Records is dropping this band.

Black Rappers calling other Black men N***** is ok. Calling women Whores or Sluts is fine. Sing about the wanton destruction of human life and private property those are acceptable behaviors. But as an artist, don't you dare call for orderly and legal immigration.
Doris, who immigrated legally to the United States from Bosnia, approved of recent crackdowns by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement targeting immigrants with criminal histories. “ICE is just doing their job,” she said, “and I’m glad they’re finally starting to work on deporting criminal illegal aliens too.” 
She also said illegal migration makes it more difficult “for people who do want to become a part of American society the right way.” 
The United States “is handing out free money to people who come here illegally,” she said, “but when you want to work hard to become an American citizen to start a family they make it so hard on you, and expensive.” 
Doris criticized “these horrible feminist bands” who she said write music about social justice but “don’t even know how to play their instruments.” 
“The safe space mentality has made them weak. … They’ll make songs about being sexually assaulted or about how empowering abortions are or some sh*t, and it’s f*cking retarded, they’re embarrassing themselves,” she said. 
“If men did that they would be crucified!” 
She also weighed in on radical feminists’ attitude toward men: “You see the longing for a gender supremacy under the guise of ‘equal rights.’” 
Doris explained why she and her husband had moved to Europe. “American musicians… are getting increasingly politically correct, and it started getting on our nerves,” she said. 
“Safe spaces make people weak, and today people should be demanding liberty, not safety and comfort,” Matthew added. 
He also said: “Whatever happened to being punk? These days everyone is a bunch of spoiled cry-babies and it takes the fun out of everything.” 
Indeed, Castle Face Records. Whatever happened to being punk?

Man, oh man, I like that little Bosnian Hottie.

Mark Zuckerberg: Facebook can play a role that churches and Little League once filled


From CNBC:
Mark Zuckerberg wants Facebook groups to play an important role that community groups like churches and Little League teams used to perform: Bringing communities together.   
And with nearly 2 billion people around the world on Facebook today, he might have a chance to make it happen. 
Zuckerberg laid out his lofty ambition in a Chicago speech last week that suggested Americans are in need of something to unify their lives. 
"It's so striking that for decades, membership in all kinds of groups has declined as much as one-quarter," he said during a rally for Facebook users who've built large community-support groups on the site. 
"That's a lot of of people who now need to find a sense of purpose and support somewhere else." 
He added, "People who go to church are more likely to volunteer and give to charity — not just because they're religious, but because they're part of a community." 
Zuckerberg thinks Facebook can help, using its networking power to organize people. 
"A church doesn't just come together. It has a pastor who cares for the well-being of their congregation, makes sure they have food and shelter. A little league team has a coach who motivates the kids and helps them hit better. Leaders set the culture, inspire us, give us a safety net, and look out for us."
He's forgetting that Baseball is a sport, built on the legacy of heroes who have inspired children's dreams and ambitions.

And Church, well, you know, that's built on a guy named Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God.

Facebook just pretty much has Mark Zuckerberg, and the suckers who think he is cool.

Zuckerberg, and his Facebook b.s., will be laid to waste in a few years. And Jesus and his Bride, the Church, will live forever.

San Francisco State University Hit With Lawsuit Alleging 'Hostile Anti-Jewish Environment'


From PJM:
San Francisco State University (SFSU) was hit by a lawsuit last week by Jewish students and community members who allege that the school foments a “pervasively hostile anti-Jewish environment.” 
While colleges across the nation have seen a near exponential rise in the number of anti-Semitic incidents, the lawsuit contends that SFSU is a particularly hostile school, which started with the founding of the College of Ethnic Studies (COES) in 1968, a social justice-themed school that focuses on minority issues. 
Since the founding of COES, anti-Jewish sentiment has only gotten worse, as administrators have rushed to support anti-Jewish student groups and departments, such as the General Union of Palestine Students and the Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas Initiative. 
The lawsuit contends that these groups have “doggedly organized their efforts to target, threaten, and intimidate Jewish students on campus and deprive them of their civil rights” and their ability to be “safe and secure” as they pursue their education at SFSU. 
While the administration has been mostly silent on the issue, in 1997 the then-president of SFSU, Robert Corrigan, did note that his school fostered “the most anti-Semitic campus in the nation,” according to the lawsuit. 
The plaintiffs include the former president of Hillel at SFSU, two current students, and three community members — all of whom were in attendance at a 2016 lecture given at SFSU by Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat. 
The lecture was deliberately hijacked by anti-Jewish student groups, whose members shouted down the speaker and allegedly made threats to members in the audience, yelling that Israel is an “Apartheid state” and “Long live the Intifada!” Mayor 
Barkat did not finish his speech, nor did he accept a second invitation to speak at SFSU, as The Algemeiner reported.

Was the FBI Investigation into General Flynn Just Payback By FBI Director McCabe for Flynn's Embarrassing the FBI by Supporting an FBI Agent Who Complained of Sex Discrimination?


From Ace of Spades:
The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews. 
Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case and an offer to testify on her behalf. 
His offer put him as a hostile witness in a case against McCabe, who was soaring through the bureau’s leadership ranks. 
The FBI sought to block Flynn’s support for the agent, asking a federal administrative law judge in May 2014 to keep Flynn and others from becoming a witness in her Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) case, memos obtained by Circa show. 
Two years later, the FBI opened its inquiry of Flynn. 
The EEOC case, which is still pending, was serious enough to require McCabe to submit to a sworn statement to investigators, the documents show. The deputy director’s testimony provided some of the strongest evidence in the case of possible retaliation, because he admitted the FBI opened an internal investigation into Gritz’s personal conduct after learning the agent “had filed or intended to file” a sex discrimination complaint against her supervisors. 
McCabe eventually became the bureau’s No. 2 executive and emerged as a central player in the FBI’s Russia election tampering investigation, putting him in a position to impact the criminal inquiry against Flynn. 
Three FBI employees told Circa they personally witnessed McCabe make disparaging remarks about Flynn before and during the time the retired Army general emerged as a figure in the Russia case.
AND THEN THERE'S THIS

Did The FBI Retaliate Against Michael Flynn By Launching Russia Probe?


From Circa:
Secret memos show Trump adviser roiled bureau by intervening in agent’s discrimination case before he was targeted in Russia case.
