OJ Simpson's decided to convert to Islam

As if it couldn't be any harder for me to watch the films and TV programs he's appeared in without feeling depressed, now he intends to make it nigh impossible:
O.J. Simpson wants to convert to Islam — if he can get through the holy month of Ramadan.

Ramadan is the fourth of the five pillars of Islam, and requires Muslims to fast during the hours of daylight. And as any recent photo will attest, food is a big, big part of Simpson’s daily life.

According to the National Enquirer, a source said Simpson sometimes wears the traditional Kufi prayer cap and studies the Koran, but failed to fast during Ramadan.

[...] The Enquirer reported that Simpson became interested in Islam through former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, who converted to Islam while serving time in prison for rape.
And upon his release, Tyson made the situation even worse by biting off the ear of Evander Holyfield. One can only wonder what Simpson, if he's ever released from prison, will do after converting. This was a man who murdered his ex-wife and her boyfriend in 1994, and never paid properly for it. And who effectively embarrassed his screen performances. Now he's made things worse by converting, in his words, to find redemption for his deeds, but in reality, as a justification for them. A pure disgrace.

COUNTDOWN: 66 Days to the Great American Intelligence Test

There’s a story my father would tell me when I was growing up.

A man comes into the doctor’s office complaining about a severe pain in his shoulder and wants to know if the doctor can do anything about it.

The doc says, “Sure”, pulls out a hammer and bashes the patient in the head.

The man screams in excruciating pain and the doc says, “Still have that pain in your shoulder?”

That’s the state of our body politic today.

Forty percent of the country is obsessed with the shoulder pain of global warming, war on women, racism, minimum wage, gay marriage, the evil one percent that have OUR money, Islamo-phobia, etc, etc, etc. – I don’t need to go on. Those “issues” and “concerns” of the forty percent have been documented in many a post here at IBA.

The November election will be the intelligence test of how much pain in the head the current Democratic administration’s scandals, incompetence, arrogance, outright lies, traitorous behavior, and down right stupidity have effected the shoulder pain of the Left and if that forty percent will react to the hammer in the head – or even notice the pain – threats to our border and the Islamo-fascists, the miserable economy (GDP under 2% for years),  - hell, I can go on and on – and they WAKE UP!

The test of success is the Republican control of both houses – even, my heart be still – a veto proof Congress.

If America fails the test, there will be no hope. It signals that this country will continue down the dumbed down, gimmie gimmie path of ruin and point to a Democratic win in the Presidential election in 2 years.

The Left’s control of America – and their agenda -  will then be complete.

And by "Senior Pentagon Official" they really mean "Soon to be retired to spend more time with his family" Pentagon Official

But in Obama's defense he didn't hesitate any more than normal. He once took thirty-seven minutes deciding on the right club for his tee shot on a par 4


Senior Pentagon Officials Say Obama Hesitated On James Foley Rescue Mission

Sarah Hurtubise
President Barack Obama’s “hesitation” to make a decision about American reporter James Foley’s rescue mission delayed the failed operation, according to a report. 

Toby Harnden, a reporter at The Sunday Times, tweeted Friday that a senior Pentagon official confirmed that Obama’s “hesitation” delayed the failed mission, which took place July 4.

Foley, an American freelance reporter, went missing in Syria in 2012 and was executed by ISIS militants, who posted the video of his beheading online. The Obama administration revealed that U.S. special forces had attempted a mission to rescue Foley and other Americans held by the ISIS, including Time reporter Steven Sotloff, but that intelligence failed and the hostages weren’t present.

The White House said in a statement on the attempted rescue that the “hostages were in danger with each passing day.”

Harnden reported earlier this week that Obama took almost 30 days to approve the mission, according to Anthony Shaffer, a former lieutenant-colonel in U.S. military intelligence.

“I’m told it was almost a 30-day delay from when they said they wanted to go to when he finally gave the green light,” Shaffer told Harnden. “They were ready to go in June to grab [Foley] and they weren’t permitted.”

Now current senior Pentagon officials have reportedly confirmed that President Obama delayed the rescue operation.

The National Security Council press team denied Harnden’s report, tweeting Friday that the senior Pentagon official’s comments were “not true” and that the operation took place as soon as President Obama and national security advisers were “confident it could be carried out successfully.”

From the Amazon Jungle to the Road to Damascus

Greeting from the Amazon jungle city of Iquitos, Peru.

I've been living in the city and the jungle for just over two years now, my third year in South America, and I think it is about time for me to consider a move to lesser pastures. I've been on the road for most of my life, and it looks like this will be the whole of my life. Today the Amazon jungle, tomorrow, I'm not so sure.

In the past three months, June, July, and August, I have published three books. My latest is a novel, and action/thriller of a sort, set in Iquitos. It's not exactly James Bond or Jason Bourne. It is, in fact, Jockk Brand. And it's not exactly a high-tech shoot-'em-up. Take a look for yourself and decide.


I write today to inform you all that my time in South America is winding down and that I will depart as soon as my next book if published, a book on Rubber Boom architecture in the Amazon. Once that is complete, my next stop might be Syria.

I will need some help if I am to get to Syria, and I'll need further help staying there as a blogger, novelist, and general intellectual. I'll write more about this as things progress.

Meantime, if you don't have my address, contact Jaco for more details.

My best from Iquitos, Peru

From AFP:
"If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month," he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station. 
"Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East," said the king who was speaking at a welcoming ceremony on Friday for new ambassadors, including a new envoy from Saudi ally the United States. 
The Islamic State (IS) jihadist group has prompted widespread concern as it advances in both Syria and Iraq, killing hundreds of people, including in gruesome beheadings and mass executions. 
Lack of action would be "unacceptable" in the face of the phenomenon, King Abdullah said. 
"You see how they (jihadists) carry out beheadings and make children show the severed heads in the street," he said, condemning the "cruelty" of such acts. 
"It is no secret to you, what they have done and what they have yet to do. I ask you to transmit this message to your leaders: 'Fight terrorism with force, reason and (necessary) speed'."

Judicial Watch: Feds’ Bulletin Describes Threat of Imminent Terrorist Attack on Southern Border

From Andrew McCarthy at the Corner:
Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. 
Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat. Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. 
The last one was issued just a few days ago. Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source. 
“It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.

Dickens On Crack: More on The Rotherham Rapes/Child Molestations (By Muslims Against Young English Girls)

From Vlad Tepes:

I’m living the high life, boasts released child abuser who was jailed for part in Rotherham grooming gang as he jets off on holiday to Pakistan

His victim Lizzie, who was only 12 when she was groomed by Umar Razaq, has been left distraught by the posts, saying he ‘taunted’ her on the social networking site after being released from jail.
Posting a selfie in sunglasses on Facebook, Razaq boasted: ‘Can’t wait… Roll on to the lifetime holiday’.

The sprawling, ugly bus station in Rotherham town centre brings back horrific memories for Emma Jackson. Nearby, on wasteland, and at the age of just 13, she was savagely raped by a man called Tarik as his laughing friends took photos on their mobile phones.
It was a brutal end to pretty Emma’s innocent childhood. By 15, she had been sexually assaulted by 54 more men: her body sold time and again by Tarik to his friends, relatives and acquaintances, in the backs of cars, in terrace houses and even in the undergrowth of the magnificent Victorian park at the centre of this once proud South Yorkshire town.

Canada's National Post Newspaper Publishes Article Encouraging People To Recite The Shahada In Order to Avoid Being Murdered By Crazed Muslims

They hit the Trifecta: Ignorant, Bigoted, and Cowardly all in one.


For those who might not know, reciting the Shahada is, in effect, converting to Islam. So yes, the National Post is encouraging people to renounce their own faith and become Muslims.

Fuck the National Post. I hope a plague of locusts invades their building and they find it impossible to remain in business:
... these words (the Shahada) saved a number of lives during the 2013 al-Qaeda-linked attack at Kenya’s Westgate Mall. To weed the Muslims out from the infidels, terrorists asked people to recite the shahadah to prove their faith. 
They asked other things too, like certain key passages of the Koran, the name of Mohammad’s mother, that sort of thing — it was al-Qaeda Question Hour. The wrong answer meant death. 
After that, many, myself included, wondered: Should we — Muslim or not — learn the basics of Islam and have a read through the Koran? If one of us ever finds herself in a situation similar to that of Westgate Mall victims, could even a rudimentary knowledge of Islam save us?
P.S. I will not post a link to the National Post article because I literally think this company should just go out of business and disappear from the face of the Earth.

If you want to read the original article, google it.

Again, Fuck the National Post.

UK Police Arrested Parents Trying to Stop Muslims from Raping their Children

From FPM:
We’re still only seeing the tip of the iceberg in the horrifying crimes committed by Muslim settlers against the children of the UK.Prof Jay wrote: 
“No one knows the true scale of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham over the years. Our conservative estimate is that approximately 1,400 children were sexually exploited over the full inquiry period, from 1997 to 2013. 
What we do know is that the authorities were complicit in it. For at least 16-years gangs of mainly Asian (Muslim) men were able to target, groom and abuse girls as young as 11, with little to fear from the authorities. Victims were gang raped, while others were groomed and trafficked across northern England.  
"It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered. They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten, and intimidated.” 
She added: 
“There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone.” 
The child victim had been repeatedly raped before she found the courage to report her story to the police. She had tried to escape, but the perpetrators had broken her brother’s legs and smashed the windows of her parent’s home as a warning. 
When she finally visited the police station, she received a text from her main abuser who made it perfectly clear what would happen to her 11-year-old sister if she spoke out. “Your choice,” he wrote repeatedly – and the girl refused to give a statement.
The problem began at the top with the same culture of Muslim abuse and Western denial as we see with terrorism. Jahangir Akhtar, the former deputy leader of the council, is accused in the report of naivety and potentially “ignoring a politically inconvenient truth” by insisting there was not a deep-rooted problem of Pakistani-heritage perpetrators targeting young white girls. 
Police told the inquiry that some influential Pakistani councillors in Rotherham acted as barriers to communication on grooming issues. In Rotherham the “majority” of known perpetrators were of Pakistani heritage, the report says, which led to police and council workers “tiptoeing” around the problem. 
Some staff at the council were nervous about identifying the ethnic origins of the attackers for fear of being called racists. Others said they had clear direction from their managers not to do so. A man pulled the hair of a 13-year old and called her a “white bitch” when she tried to reject his attempt to strip her. 
The police did their part… for the Muslim rapists. The report heard of two cases where fathers tracked down their daughters and tried to remove them from houses where they were being abused only to be arrested themselves when police were called.

FBI National Domestic Threat Assessment Omits Islamist Terrorism

I guess we'll have to check out the "Workplace Violence Assessment" to get a picture of the potential Islamofascist threat.

From the Free Beacon:
The FBI’s most recent national threat assessment for domestic terrorism makes no reference to Islamist terror threats, despite last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting—both carried out by radical Muslim Americans. 
Instead, the internal FBI intelligence report concluded in its 2013 assessment published this month that the threat to U.S. internal security from extremists is limited to attacks and activities by eight types of domestic extremist movements—none motivated by radical Islam. 
They include anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with “sovereign citizen” nationalists, and anarchists. 
Other domestic threat groups outlined by the FBI assessment include violent animal rights and environmentalist extremists, black separatists, anti- and pro-abortion activists, and Puerto Rican nationalists. 
On black separatists, the report warned that “high-profile racially charged crimes or events” could lead to an expansion of black separatist groups. 
The report identified three such groups as the New Black Panther Party, the Israelite Church of God in Jesus Christ, and the Black Hebrew Israelite group as extremists under FBI scrutiny. 
An alternative assessment section in the report warned that radical black activists could “reinitiate violence at the historically high levels seen for the movement during the 1970s, when bombings, assassinations, hijackings, and hostage-takings occurred.”

The Long Arm of Qatar

Don't let all the partying and golf and vacations fool you. The anti-Semites in the Obama Administration have been hard at work behind the scenes:

Why Israel?  Why now?Though few Americans paid any attention at the time, in November of last year, Secretary of State John Kerry announced to the world that this summer would be defined by violence against the Jewish state.  Almost as he had been tipped off, the Secretary of State warned Israel to make a deal with the likes of Hamas and Fatah, Palestinian parties who do not acknowledge Israel’s right to exist, Kerry said, “Does Israel want a third intifada? … “I believe that if we do not resolve the issues between Palestinians and Israelis; if we do not find a way to find peace, there will be an increasing isolation of Israel. There will be an increasing campaign of delegitimization of Israel that’s taking place on an international basis.”  Kerry’s November comments were followed up in May by other, albeit anonymous, officials… one who stated, “I guess we need another intifada to create the circumstances that would allow progress.

Iraqi Christians Begin Taking Up Arms Against ISIS

From AINA:
Of all the many ancient peoples who once lived in the land between the Tigris and the Euphrates, Iraq’s Assyrian Christians pride themselves on having persisted in their traditional homeland for millennia, even as other civilizations thrived then disappeared, as languages and cultures died out, as ethnic groups melted into the ways and genetic pools of their conquerors. 
But today Iraq’s Assyrians, and its Christians in general, fear that their place in this multiethnic, multisectarian mosaic society is shrinking, under severe threat from the ultraconservative Islamist group the Islamic State (IS). It isn’t the first time that Iraq’s Christians have faced such a foe. 
The IS’s earlier incarnation, al Qaeda in Iraq–a group that formed after the U.S.-led invasion in 2003–also menaced Christians, and others, prompting tens of thousands to flee into exile. 
Now, the particularly harsh nature of the IS’s assault on Christians, Yazidis, Shiite Muslims, and others who do not share allegiance to the IS’s brand of ultraconservative Sunni Islam has led some of Iraq’s Christians to take the unusual step of shedding their historical passivity and consider taking up arms to defend and eventually govern themselves. 
The Assyrian Patriotic Party, one of several Assyrian political organizations, has armed and dispatched a symbolic, rather than an active, force of some 40 members to join the Kurdish Peshmerga fighting the IS in the northwest of Iraq, according to party official Henry Sarkis. 
The 40 men constitute what Sarkis calls the “first wave,” and the unit has adopted the name Dukha, an Assyrian word that means “sacrifice.” The party bought weapons with money donated by members in the diaspora, Sarkis said, and is looking to raise more funds through donations to increase its stockpile. 
Sarkis’s men are mainly behind the front line, around the town of Sharfiyah, not so much fighting alongside the Peshmerga as holding territory the Kurdish forces have gained or are pushing forward from. Still, it marks a significant shift in the attitude of Iraq’s Christians, a shift that’s fraught with peril. Since 2003, Iraq’s Christian community has been viewed by other Iraqis as a passive victim of the country’s many conflicts, not an active aggressor.

Report: ISIS Plotting To Assassinate Pope Francis For “Bearing False Witness” Against Islam

Wave bye bye, Franny
"Bye Bye"

VATICAN CITY — As Pope Francis continues to straddle the fine line between calling for the end of persecution of Christians in Iraq and blessing American airstrikes against the Islamic State (also known as the “Caliphate,” ISIS, or ISIL), there is increasing concern for the pontiff’s—and the public’s—safety. 
Earlier this week, the Roman newspaper Il Tempo published a disturbing report that Francis is “in the crosshairs” of ISIS for “bearing false witness” against Islam. 
Citing anonymous sources within Italy’s intelligence community and pointing to notable heightened security in Rome, the paper went on to say that ISIS plans to heat things up by “raising the level of confrontation” with Europe, Italy and very specifically Pope Francis, the “greatest exponent of the Christian religions.” 
The terrorism alert came the day after Italy’s parliament approved a measure to start shipping weapons to help arm Kurdish peshmerga troops fighting ISIS—a promise made by Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi on a state visit to Iraq earlier this month. 
Sicilian seaports that will facilitate the shipment have already stepped up security measures, especially on incoming vessels.

New York Times: Europe Needs To Embrace Islam

From the New York Slimes:
Counter to the common interpretation, the appeal of radical anti-Western groups like ISIS among European Muslims is not driven primarily by socioeconomic deprivation. In fact, three interrelated factors play a more significant role. 
The first is the powerful presence of the Salafi version of Islam in the religious market of ideas. This is problematic because even as most Muslims in the West are not Salafis and the majority of Salafis are not jihadists, it happens that groups like Al Qaiada and ISIS have a Salafi background. It means that their theological view comes from a particular interpretation of Islam rooted in Wahhabism, an eighteenth century doctrine adopted by the Saudi kingdom. In the West, Salafis incite people to withdraw from mainstream society, depicted as impure, in order to live by strict rules. These reactionary interpretations do contain similarities with jihadist discourse. 
The second factor in the radicalization of Muslim youth is the increase of discriminatory policies vis-à-vis Islamic practices in Europe, including the use of the hijab and regulation of mosque minarets, circumcision and halal food. All contribute to a growing sense among Muslims that they are not accepted as full members of European society. Anti-immigration and anti-Islamic discourse translates into discriminatory practices in employment, housing and political activities. It can be a factor in strengthening a defensive identification within Islam and therefore gives more leverage to any ideology that pits the West against Muslims. 
Third, the collapse of all major ideologies in Europe — nationalism, Communism, and liberalism — has left room for new radical options. For some young Europeans, adherence to radical Islam provides a viable alternative ideology, comparable to that of radical leftist groups in the 1970s. 
These factors reveal a lack of true integration of Muslims as European policies have prioritized socioeconomic measures. In other words, political efforts are needed to put an end to the ‘ghettoization’ of Islam, which is often depicted as alien and incompatible with Western core liberal values.

ISIS Is Weaponizing Bio-Agents According to Fatwa Which Declares, "It Is Permissible, Even If It Kills All (Infidels) And Wipes Them Off The Face of the Earth"

From Foreign Policy:
Abu Ali, a commander of a moderate Syrian rebel group in northern Syria, proudly shows a black laptop partly covered in dust. “We took it this year from an ISIS hideout,” he says. [...] 
The laptop’s contents turn out to be a treasure trove of documents that provide ideological justifications for jihadi organizations — and practical training on how to carry out the Islamic State’s deadly campaigns. 
They include videos of Osama bin Laden, manuals on how to make bombs, instructions for stealing cars, and lessons on how to use disguises in order to avoid getting arrested while traveling from one jihadi hot spot to another. 
But after hours upon hours of scrolling through the documents, it became clear that the ISIS laptop contains more than the typical propaganda and instruction manuals used by jihadists. 
The documents also suggest that the laptop’s owner was teaching himself about the use of biological weaponry, in preparation for a potential attack that would have shocked the world. 
The information on the laptop makes clear that its owner is a Tunisian national named Muhammed S. who joined ISIS in Syria and who studied chemistry and physics at two universities in Tunisia’s northeast. 
Even more disturbing is how he planned to use that education: The ISIS laptop contains a 19-page document in Arabic on how to develop biological weapons and how to weaponize the bubonic plague from infected animals. 
The document includes instructions for how to test the weaponized disease safely, before it is used in a terrorist attack. 
“When the microbe is injected in small mice, the symptoms of the disease should start to appear within 24 hours,” the document says. The laptop also includes a 26-page fatwa, or Islamic ruling, on the usage of weapons of mass destruction. 
“If Muslims cannot defeat the kafir [unbelievers] in a different way, it is permissible to use weapons of mass destruction,” states the fatwa by Saudi jihadi cleric Nasir al-Fahd, who is currently imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. “Even if it kills all of them and wipes them and their descendants off the face of the Earth.” 
When contacted by phone, a staff member at a Tunisian university listed on Muhammed’s exam papers confirmed that he indeed studied chemistry and physics there. She said the university lost track of him after 2011, however.

The woman who presided over the Rotherham Council that investigated the molestation of children is the same executive who removed three children from their foster parents because they were Ukip voters

From the Telegraph:

The woman who presided over the last five years of failure as the boss of children’s services at Rotherham Council is the same executive who removed three children from their foster parents because they were Ukip voters. 
Joyce Thacker, the £130,000-a-year Strategic Director of Children’s Services at the scandal-hit council, is among the senior managers who are now under pressure to resign following the “excoriating” report into child sexual exploitation in the town. 
Although she is not named as being culpable for the failure to protect 1,400 abused children in the report, as the head of children’s services since 2008 Mrs Thacker is among those whose positions now appear to be under threat. 
Mrs Thacker, who joined the Council as deputy head of children’s services in 2006, is already a controversial figure following her decision two years ago toremove three ethnic minority children from their foster parents because of their affiliation to Ukip. 
After The Telegraph drew attention to the foster parents’ plight, Mrs Thacker refused to back down, saying the children’s “cultural and ethnic needs” did not fit in with the parents’ “strong views”. She said their support for Ukip meant they opposed “multiculturalism”. 
Last year, during an appearance before Parliament’s Home Affairs Select Committee to give evidence on child grooming in Rotherham she told MPs: “I do not think I would fully accept that we have failed dismally to deal with the issue.” 
When asked why there had been so few people brought to justice for child sexual exploitation in Rotherham, she replied: “Prosecution is the icing on the cake.”

A very interesting test of factual reporting has come FOX VS CNN

This morning on Salon (as big a hater of Fox as they come)  - over Ferguson and Officer Wilson's 'broken' eye socket (or NOT)

Anatomy of a Fox News smear: Ann Coulter, Matt Drudge and the “dumbest person on the Internet”

This takes down the accuracy of Gateway Pundit if Salon is correct, BTW, because the 'dumbest person on the internet' is Jim Hoft who publishes there, and this story was yanked from there, and Drudge.
Salon claims via CNN that there is NO WAY Officer Wilson has a broken eye socket as widely reported, and Fox is clueless because they took a story from Gateway Pundit like fools, actually like Dan Rather
WaPo, non rabid, but left of center, says:
Magee said that prosecutors have not received any medical records relating to Wilson so far. ​But he said that since Wilson was taken to the hospital, they assume there are medical records and they just haven’t received them yet.
A family friend of Wilson’s told The Washington Post that Wilsonsuffered a fractured eye socket. Ferguson police have said that Wilson’s face was injured and he needed medical treatment, but they did not go into any detail. On Wednesday night, Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III told Fox News that he could not confirm reports that Wilson suffered a fractured eye bone.
Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III told Fox News he could not confirm reports about the fractured eye bone.
CNN, has their 'source' which says he has seen the x-ray and Wilson had a swollen face PERIOD.

More... it just doesn't stop there.
Hoft also cited a tweet from Christine Byers, a reporter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, who said, “Police sources tell me more than a dozen witnesses have corroborated cop’s version of events in shooting.” This was odd, as at this point there had been no story from Wilson, who had gone into hiding shortly after the shooting.
Apparently the Post-Dispatch found it odd, too, as the paper published a story making clear that they never published Byers’ information, that she was not working on this story, and that she had been on leave since March. Byers then tweeted: “On FMLA from paper. Earlier tweets did not meet standards for publication.”
The link to the St. Louis paper is ACCURATELY reported by Salon.
And what of Jim Hoft? How did Hoft react when his story fell apart? Being Jim Hoft means never having to say “I was wrong.” In fact, in a follow-up piece, Hoft doubled down. His original two anonymous sources were now four anonymous sources. Hoft even took CNN to task for not running with his original BS story. Under the headline “NOW THERE ARE FOUR SOURCES: Officer Darren Wilson Suffered Fractured Eye Socket,” Hoft hilariously cites himself as a source, then closes with: ”CNN really needs to be more responsible with such sensitive information.”
Not only was Hoft doubling down on his now discredited original story, he was taking a victory lap. He claims to have single handedly caused the “Liberal Media” to pull out of Ferguson under the banner headline “Liberal Media Pulls Out of #Ferguson – After Reports of Officer Wilson’s Busted Up Face” And for extra comedic effect, Hoft cites World Net Daily, one of the craziest, least reliable sources in the entire wingnutosphere and known to critics as World Nut Daily.
Hoft is still “reporting” on Ferguson, posting a string of articles that take race baiting to the next level. He talks about “black lynch mobs” and decries the looting and rioting while poor, innocent Darren Wilson is “struggling” and “in fear for his life.” He claims Wilson’s supporters are receiving death threats (from black people) and reports on how white people are co-opting the now famous “hands up” posture to promise not to rob convenience stores. He explains that Mike Brown’s family calling for an end to protests is actually a calling for protests to continue.
Frankly I have to wonder WHY Salon published this story BEFORE X-rays and medical records from the hospital became part of the indisputable public record.
This story is not about Wilson, or Ferguson, but about how news is reported. Did Fox get 'Dan Rathered' by running to believe what their news editors' inner political beliefs yelled at them, or are CNN and Salon doing that same thing.
It will be VERY INTERESTING to know the truth.

Princeton Professor Says, Islamic State Will Carry Out ‘Mass Slaughter’ in the U.S. if Not Stopped Soon

From the Blaze:
Princeton University professor Robert George warned Wednesday that the Islamic State will carry out “mass slaughter in the United States” if it is not soon “destroyed as a fighting force.” 
“They have every intention of getting [to the United States], and these are people who achieve what they set out to achieve,” George said on The Glenn Beck Program with guest host Dana Loesch. 
“Unless somebody stops them, they make good on their threats. They have threatened to carry out activity in the United States — killing people, mass slaughter in the United States.” 
“Believe me, I plead with you, I want your listeners to believe me — these people will do it if they can,” George continued. 
“And they will be able to do it unless we stop them.”The Princeton professor described the Islamic State as “genocidal,” saying: “They mean to wipe out entire communities, and there is nothing they will stop short of when it comes to achieving their goal.” 
“Our well-being, our security, our place in the world are vitally threatened by ISIS and ISIL,” he said. “They will stop at nothing … in order to destroy anyone standing in their way so that they can establish the caliphate.”

The Muslim Rape of Christian Nuns

From Front Page:
The latest such attack comes from Bangladesh, which is over 90% Muslim in population. In early July, dozens of men armed with machetes, knives and iron rods attacked the convent of PIME (Pontifical Institute of Foreign Missions nuns in Boldipuku), a village mission in north Bangladesh.In the words of Bishop Sebastian Tudu “the nuns were beaten and molested, ending when police arrived.” 
Catholic Online has the complete story: 
[S]ome 60 men attempted to loot the building and rape the nuns… The attackers first tied the hands and legs of the mission’s two night watchmen and gagged them in the early morning hours. They then broke down the door of the room where the assistant pastor Father Anselmo Marandy was sleeping. 
They then raided the convent located in the mission campus…. 
Three PIME nuns suffered attempted rape and were sent to their provincial house in Dhaka, the national capital where they are trying to overcome the shock and mental suffering. 
“It’s very sad that the sisters cannot continue to work for the people, but our sisters are no longer safe,” Rosaline Costa, a Catholic human rights activist lamented. Local Christians are currently living in fear since the attack. Christians form only 0.8 percent of Dinajpur district’s three million people.

More On Roterham Rapes: 'Muslim leaders fully aware of problem but did nothing': Pakistani community worker makes explosive claims on Rotherham's religious leaders who 'talked in mosques but not to police'

They knew about it for "a long time."

But they did not go to the Police.

They refuse to talk about it publicly.



And in Sharia/Muslim nations, the courts and the police look the other way on Child Molestation.

So yeah. Why would we expect them to do anything about it?

From the Daily Mail:
Pakistani community leaders in Rotherham were complicit in hushing up the shocking ‘ethnic’ dimensions of the sexual exploitation rather than speaking out, it was claimed yesterday. 
Parveen Qureshi, director of the United Multicultural Centre in Rotherham, revealed the shocking issue was widely discussed between leaders who were privately ‘trying to resolve the problem’. 
She refused to name those who kept quiet, but was certain the problem of Asian men abusing white girls was known ‘for a long time’. 
The abuse of at least 1,400 girls at the hands of Pakistani gangs in the South Yorkshire town for 16 years was shrouded in secrecy. 
Yesterday Lord Ahmed, who has lived in Rotherham for most of his life, said it was now up to the ‘mosques and community leaders’ to teach ‘moral and ethical values’ lost to the younger generation. 
Lord Ahmed, a member of the House of Lords who was Rotherham’s first Asian councillor, said yesterday: ‘I am deeply shocked by these heinous despicable crimes committed by young Pakistani men. ‘I do think that there’s a huge amount of responsibility that lies on the shoulders of the mosques and the community leaders because they are responsible for teaching ethical values and respect. 
‘I came to Rotherham in 1969 when the first mosque was opened and we were taught moral and ethical values and mixed with the community. ‘If someone had a call from the police, people would be embarrassed and ashamed.’ He said he was now ‘worried for Rotherham’ in the wake of the child abuse scandal. 
He added: ‘The majority of British Pakistani men are stuck between criminals involved in these problems and a few hundred that are involved with other issues like terrorism or other criminal activity.’
By the way, lest any of us bask in our offense, feeling proud that we Infidels don't do things like this, I say this:

A Society is judged ultimately by how it treats it's women and children, the weakest among us.

The fact that we do nothing in the wake of such heinous crime means that we are a sick and weak society indeed.

Men should not stand idly by while their women and children are raped.

CAIR Lawyer Wonders If ISIS Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdad Isi Really A Jew Working For The Mossad?

Even Those With The Intelligence of a Rock Will Say,
"There Is A Jew Hiding Behind Me"

From the Investigative Project on Terrorism:
While the world recoils in horror at the brutality shown by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, an attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) apparently gave serious consideration to a wild conspiracy theory alleging that ISIS is a Mossad and CIA “proxy force.” 
Lena Masri, a CAIR attorney in Detroit, linked from her Facebook page Aug. 22 to an article by Iran’s official news agency, IRNA, about ISIS and its rise to prominence. Among its claims, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed caliph of the Islamic State, “is really Simon Elliot, a Jewish agent for the Zionist intelligence agency Mossad.” 
The notion rated a “pants-on-fire” from fact-checking site “Pundit Fact,” three days earlier, but Masri chose instead to put the question out to her Facebook friends. “Any truth to this???” she wrote.
Why, of course, this is the kind of question that troubles "Moderate Muslims". Right?

“I don’t know what to do about the Japs. Beats me”

What Admiral Halsey DIDN’T SAY in 1942

Obama confesses: ‘We don’t have a strategy yet’ for dealing with Islamic State

President Obama said Thursday he doesn’t have a strategy yet for defeating Islamist militants in Syria.
“I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” Mr. Obama said in a news conference at the White House. “We don’t have a strategy yet. As our strategy develops, we will consult with Congress.”
"Damn I can’t figure out how to get on the continent and get at those Nazis" What Dwight Eisenhower DIDN’T SAY
"Yamamoto sure got us with our pants down, and now the Navy is at the bottom of Pearl, and we’re FUCKED" What FDR didn’t say
"Well, now that the entire Union Army ran off at Manasas, I don’t have any idea what to do next." What Abe Lincoln didn’t say
"How the hell do we get out of here" What Chesty Puller didn’t say at Chosin
What do actual leaders do when confronted by the unexpected, unpleasant and discouraging?
Here is what Puller said: "We’ve been looking for the enemy for some time now. We’ve finally found him. We’re surrounded. That simplifies things."

Comics Bulletin ignores the dishonesty in Muslim Ms. Marvel writing

Comics Bulletin's published their own fawning over the Muslim Ms. Marvel series, and makes the point for anyone who guessed there'd be dishonesty in how it was promoted:
Another enjoyable element is that Kamala's Muslim faith and upbringing plays a big role in the story. So often in comic books a new character will be introduced with a certain religion or characteristic that is just there so that they can bring it up every now and then so the writer can call it a characteristic. But in Ms. Marvel, Kamala's faith is a huge part of who she is – who she and her family are. They go to mosques, they wear headscarves, and she has to seek advice from her Sheika. Her religion is actually an integral element of the story and the character and is woven well throughout the first seven issues.
Obviously again, this rendition does not admit there's an iota wrong with the Religion of Peace, but what this op-ed also confirms is that, despite any claims to the contrary, Islam does play a significant role in this propaganda, proving Marvel doesn't have the courage to admit they're fine with promoting a particular agenda, and the use of taqqiya (deception).
Though the religious aspect of the story is important, the strongest element in this series is its characters. Rarely has a comic book had this strong a set of characters. Whether it be Zoe, the ditzy blonde girl in school who thinks that she is really reaching out as a friend to Kamala when she really isn't or it be Bruno, Kamala's second-best friend, who only tries to look out for her -- even if that means getting her in trouble with her parents. And there's a plethora of other great supporting characters in this book, such as Sheika Abdula, who initially comes off as a grouchy old man who has disdain for Kamala but is actually very kind and understanding to her plight.

The best set of characters in this book, though, are Kamala and her family. G. Willow Wilson does a fantastic job injecting her family with humanity and believability. They don't feel like cartoonish over-the-top stereotypes they feel like real people. Kamala's brother Jamir is very religious but you understand that he has a deep interest in the teachings and ideals of his faith, Kamala's mother Disha is very shrill and hysterical but it's because she doesn't really understand what the American teenager is like, compared to her upbringing. And Kamala's father Abu-Jann is very stern but clearly cares about Kamala and understands her better than the rest of her family. None of them come off as completely annoying and you really care about Kamala's relationship to all of them and how much they all care for each other.
Curious how the writer says the characters don't feel like stereotypes when, as noted before, the non-Muslim whites (and probably Blacks and Latinos too) come across terribly, and the blonde student is apparently just one of those examples of poor focus on "kuffars" (infidels), if she's portrayed negatively. He fails to consider how the surreal depiction of the family is all done at the expense of some of the guest characters. Yet the mother's rendition is eyebrow raising. Why must the father be portrayed as "caring", yet the mother characterized more as a hothead? And how interesting that this, of all books Marvel could be publishing, is the one allegedly featuring the "brightest" viewpoint, scuttled by how it only serves to mask an ideology thriving on darkness. I've often had the feeling a lot of so-called reviewers do these positive takes deliberately, and wouldn't be surprised if the same applies here. At the end, it says:
Ms. Marvel is a great read for kids, adults teens, women, Muslims, everyone!
It's very dishonest to say it's great for women and children if it's not transparent about the religion's content, yet, as earlier research shows, not every Muslim is enthused either, the propaganda angles notwithstanding. The idea of a girl with powers is not something hardcore Muslims appreciate. And I just remembered: G. Willow Wilson claimed earlier that polymorphs are portrayed negatively, yet Big Bertha is one heroine in the MCU whose power of inflating her structure to huge proportions is very much like polymorphism, which makes Ashley Crawford another character of that kind who's been depicted positively, and Wilson failed to take note of.

Maybe the worst part of this book aside from the politics and artwork is the lowercase lettering that overran Marvel books in the early 2000s and continues to this day. It doesn't look very appealing and makes me realize how much more effective past output was with its largely uppercase lettering.

Morocco Bans The Burkini?

We put up with the Muslims and their shit, while Morocco which is essentially a Muslim country itself, just says NO.

What is wrong with us?

What is right with Morocco?
Muslim Fury as Burkini Banned in Top Hotels 
Thinking of jetting off to Morocco for a last-minute end-of-summer getaway while staying uber modest? Well now you can’t — because hotels across the traditionally Muslim country have banned the burkini. Scores of resorts across the state have slapped a ban on the halal swimsuit, which covers the body and has a head covering attached, because they claim it’s unclean.
