Excerpt: “Outrageous” hardly describes the non-logic of this policy. What Commander-in-Chief lets the enemy return to the fight in the middle of a war? … Nearly 700 inmates have been released from Gitmo, and more than 200 have returned to the fight or are suspected of doing so, according to the Director of National Intelligence. And that’s just who we know about.
In a close 5-4 vote, the city of Irving ruled to back the Texas state bill banning foreign law from the state. It basically would slam the door in their faces, preventing them from spreading Sharia throughout the country. Now they are accusing the city council of unfairly being targeted.
Won't you feel sorry for these poor Muslims?
By their own website’s admission, if U.S. law conflicts with Sharia law, “we follow Sharia law.” It also openly admitted separate rules for men and women in their proceedings, discriminating and humiliating women which is against the U.S. Constitution. The Islamic Tribunal also openly declared that they hope will “set a precedence that will be emulated and duplicated throughout the country.”
“This continues efforts by elected officials who seek to score points with their voting base by demonizing Muslims,” Alia Salem, who directs the North Texas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told the City Council before Thursday’s vote. She said it had a choice between “diversity” and “hatred, fear and bigotry.”
Yeah, opposing sharia is now the same as promoting "hatred, fear and bigotry". What's amusing about all this is the website of this sharia court. In their own words:
Stoning adulterers, cutting of the hands, polyandry and the like (all can be traced in the relevant literature and can be explained in their Islamic legal mentality and rational context in fairness and justice), are mainly a part of Islamic Criminal Law. In fact criminal law within Islam only makes up a fraction of the Shari’ah. It is unscholarly and unfair to generalize that type of understanding, that is Criminal Law, to compromise the whole of Islamic law if we stick to speaking in technical terms.
Don't you understand you stupid infidels!? Beheadings, stonings, chopping of limbs, multiple wives, sex slavery -- that's just a small, super tiny, minuscule part of sharia. There's a lot more to sharia than just that, you racist bigots!
Seasoned Republican political handlers serially attack Donald Trump and his campaign as amateurish, incompetent, and incoherent. The media somehow outdid their propaganda work for Barack Obama and have signed on as unapologetic auxiliaries to the Hillary Clinton campaign — and openly brag that, in Trump’s case, the duty of a journalist is to be biased.
We have devolved to the point that a Harvard Law professor teases about unethically releasing his old confidential notes of his lawyer/client relationship with Trump.
Conservative columnists and analysts are so turned off by Trump that they resort to sophisticated metaphors to express their distaste — like “abortion,” “ape,” “bastard,” “bitch,” “cancer,” “caudillo,” “dog crap,” “filth,” “idiot,” “ignoramus,” and “moron.” Some of them variously talk of putting a bullet through his head given that he resembles, or is worse than, Caesar, Hitler, Mussolini, or Stalin.
Derangement Syndrome is a more apt clinical diagnosis for the Right’s hatred of Trump than it was for the Left’s loathing of Bush. Had such venom been directed at leftists or minorities, the commentators likely would have lost their venues.
Trump’s political obituary over the last 14 months has been rewritten about every three weeks. During the primaries, each time he won a state we were told that that victory was his last. Now, in the general-election campaign, his crude ego is supposedly driving the Republican ticket into oblivion.
The media have discovered that what gets Trump’s goat is not denouncing his coarseness, but lampooning his lack of cash and poor polling: broke and being a loser is supposedly far worse for Trump’s ego than being obnoxious and cruel. So far, he is behind in most of the polls most of the time.
But not so fast!
Mysteriously, each time he hits rock bottom, Trump — even before his recent “pivot” — begins a two-week chrysalis cycle of inching back in the polls to within 2 or 3 points of Clinton. Apparently Trump represents something well beyond Trump per se.
He appears to be a vessel of, rather than a catalyst for, popular furor at “elites” — not so much the rich, but the media/political/academic/celebrity global establishment that derides the ethos of the middle class as backward and regressive, mostly as a means for enjoying their own apartheid status and sense of exalted moral self, without guilt over their generational influence and privilege.
Given the surprise of Brexit and Trump’s unexpected dominance of the primaries, pollsters seem to fear that his populist support is underreported by 2 or 3 percentage points. Some voters who do not openly profess that they plan to vote for Trump might do just that in the privacy of the polling booth — even as they might later deny that fact to others.
His latest pivot may be too late, but it certainly hit the right notes by presenting his populist themes — unwise trade deals, defense cuts, inner-city violence, attacks against police, illegal immigration, the war on coal, big-government regulations, and boutique environmentalism — as symptomatic of elite neglect not just of the white working class but of minorities as well, upon whom liberal policy falls most heavily.
By curbing his personal invective and focusing on Obama’s incompetence and Clinton’s corruption, Trump may succeed in allowing 4 or 5 percent of the missing Republicans and independents to return and vote for him without incurring social disdain. The news cycle favors any outsider — certainly including Trump.
About every three weeks, terrorists butcher innocents in one or another Western country, usually screaming “Allahu Akbar” during their victims’ death throes. These terrorists have often been watched but otherwise left alone by intelligence agencies. Liberal pieties follow, along with warnings to the public about their prejudices, rather than admonitions to radical Islamists to stop their killing.
The ensuing public backlash does not mesh with the Obama–Clinton narrative that the killings were mere workplace violence, a generic form of “violent extremism,” or had “nothing to do with Islam.”
Like Jimmy Carter, with his infamous inability to frame the Iranian hostage crisis, so too the latest manifestation of Hillary Clinton is simply unable to identify the origin, nature, and extent of the terrorist threat — much less offer a solution.
When the president upgrades the ISIS threat from a jayvee classification to something analogous to a fall in the bathroom, the public is not reassured that his former secretary of state understands radical Islamic terrorism.
In the same vein, with 11 million illegal aliens in the U.S., almost daily we hear a news report of yet another illegal-alien felony, or a new sanctuary city, or an effort by the “undocumented” to get the vote out — none of which enhances open-borders Hillary.
A new study based on interviews conducted over social media with foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria raises doubts about the commonly held notion that young men in North America and Europe who are drawn to violent Islamic extremism must be marginalized loners looking for an alternative to their dead-end lives.
The theory is ridiculous but it does allow politicians to blame the West; if only we were compassionate and thoughtful and nice to these fragile flowers, then they wouldn't have cracked and slaughtered innocents.
Notice, how the Religion That Must Not Be Named remains unmentioned. Of course, reality will, sooner or later, hit you like a sledgehammer.
The report repeatedly stresses the finding that, based on what fighters themselves say, they are “pulled” to Iraq and Syria by religious ideas, rather than being “pushed” by the realities of their lives in the West. “None of our sample indicated coming from familial situations of poverty or marginality,” they say. “On the contrary, many indicated they had fairly happy and privileged, or at least comfortable, childhoods. In general, there was almost no discussion of the economic situation of their families.”
Financially poor Muslims don't fly planes into buildings. They don't travel the globe to fight against the infidels. They don't have high-speed internet from which they get their evil education.
Genuinely poor Muslims are too busy not starving to death every day.
It's usually pampered scum like Osama Bin Laden who have too much time and comfort to plan, and then put in motion, their atrocities.
Under-fire EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker risked widening divisions with European leaders today by saying borders were the 'worst invention ever'.
He called for all borders across Europe to be opened, despite the chaos caused over the last year from the flood in refugees fleeing Syria and the wave of terror attacks hitting various continent's cities.
The remarkable comments will further undermine Mr Juncker's precarious position as European Commission President.
He has faced repeated calls to quit after his failure to keep Britain in the EU and the refugee and Greek debt crises.
Today he accepted the Commission 'deserves criticism' but insisted national government's 'have to share the blame'.
Speaking at the Alpbach Media Academy this morning, Mr Juncker said: 'Borders are the worst invention ever made by politicians.'
The contentious remarks from the Brussels chief are the polar opposite of moves by elected leaders of EU member states who have tighten their borders over recent months after more than a million entered the bloc from Syria in less than a year.
Yeah, I remember what the Romanians did to Ceaucescu.
The FBI has launched a federal terrorism investigation into a weekend stabbing in Roanoke, Va., looking at whether the attacker may have been trying to behead his victim in an alleged ISIS-inspired assault, sources tell ABC News.
ederal authorities have been aware of the alleged attacker, 20-year-old Wasil Farooqui, of the Roanoke area, for some time, sources familiar with the case told ABC News.
In the past year, he traveled to Turkey and may have tried to sneak into Syria, where ISIS is recruiting and inspiring sympathizers from across the world, sources said.
Farooqui was arrested Saturday by Roanoke County Police on charges of assault with malicious wounding, and he's being held without bond at the Western Virginia Regional Jail, according to the sources and a jail database.
During the Saturday stabbing, Farooqui allegedly injured a man and woman at an apartment complex in Roanoke, yelling "Allah Akbar" as he attacked them with a knife, sources told ABC News.
Authorities believe he may have been trying to behead the male victim, who was likely picked at random, ABC News was told.
Farooqui and his two alleged victims were hospitalized after the attack. Their conditions were not clear.
"The FBI is working with the Police Department following the incident that occurred on Saturday evening," the head of the FBI’s Richmond field office, Special Agent In Charge Adam Lee, said in a statement.
"While I cannot discuss details of the investigation at this time, I do want to reassure the community that we are working to determine the nature of the incident."
As the Gen McChrystal scandal broke in 2010, Col MacGregor, who attended West Point with McChrystal, and was angered by the US military’s disastrous Iraq and Afghanistan “nation building” efforts, commented accurately:
The idea that we are going to spend a trillion dollars to reshape the culture of the Islamic world is utter nonsense.
Successful lobbying for that miserably failed utopianism was accomplished by bowdlerizing Islam—indeed mindslaughtering it, a powerful term I will introduce. My discussion will identify the ultimate source of “gravitas” for that bowdlerization process, and key elements of the Islam—not “Islamism,” or “radical Islam”—bowdlerized.
Tuesday August 2nd, (2016) Khizr Khan, who achieved notoriety for his condemnation of Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention, had thetemerity to tell Anderson Cooper “I do not stand for any Sharia Law because there is no such thing.” Except when he, Khan, notes it does exist, as in his 1983essay published in the Houston Journal of International Law, “JURISTIC CLASSIFICATION OF ISLAMIC LAW”, which used the word “Sharia” 8X, including this usage:
“All other juridical works which have been written during more than thirteen centuries are very rich and indispensable, but they must always be subordinated to the Shari'ah…”
CNN’s Anderson Cooper did not even challenge Khan’s mendacious, self-contradictory assertion let alone follow-up on Khan’s effusive written praise of two prominent, modern global Sharia promoting ideologues, Said Ramadan, and A.K. Brohi, making plain Khan’s support for so-called “Sharia-based human rights.” The Khan-Cooper exchange illustrates, starkly, the contemporary equivalent of what the great chronicler of Soviet Communist mass murder, Robert Conquest, appositely characterized as MINDSLAUGHTER—a brilliantly evocative term for delusive Western apologetics regarding the ideology of Communism, and the tangible horrors its Communist votaries inflicted. Conquest decried those numerous “Western intellectuals or near intellectuals” of the 1930s through the 1950s whose willful delusions about the Soviet Union, “will be incredible to later students of mental aberration.” He observed,
“One role of the democratic media is, of course, to criticize their own governments, and draw attention to the faults and failings of their own country. But when this results in a transfer of loyalties to a far worse and thoroughly inimical culture, or at least to a largely uncritical favoring of such a culture, it becomes a morbid affliction—involving, often enough, the uncritical acceptance of that culture’s own standards”
His critique of Western media highlights a cultural self-loathing tendency which has persisted and intensified over the intervening decades, and is now manifest in the bowdlerized public discussion of Islam. Tragically, such MINDSLAUGHTERED Islamic discourse extends to an iconic figure in conservative punditry on Islam, while the impact of this doyen’s policymaking advice has been disastrous.
Samuel Huntington acknowledged his indebtedness to Bernard Lewis’s 1990 essay, “The Roots of Muslim Rage,” for Huntington’s book title, “The Clash of Civilizations.” Lewis, as Huntington notes (on p. 213), in 1990, had pronounced,
This is no less than a clash of civilizations—that perhaps irrational, but surely historic reaction of an ancient rival against our Judeo-Christian heritage, our secular present, and the worldwide expansion of both.
Oracle-like font of Islamic wisdom to a large swath of conservative policymaking elites, Bernard Lewis added this caveat:
It is crucially important that we on our side should not be provoked into an equally historic but also equally irrational reaction against that rival.
Despite his own morally equivocating advice, Lewis himself convinced the Bush 2 administration to pursue what became known, aptly, as “The Lewis Doctrine,” which was not only an irrational, but a catastrophic response to the eminently rational Islamic doctrine of jihad.
Eight days after the Sept. 11  attacks, with the Pentagon still smoldering, Mr. Lewis addressed the U.S. Defense Policy Board. Mr. Lewis and a friend, Iraqi exile leader Ahmad Chalabi–now [circa 2/2004] a member of the interim Iraqi Governing Council—argued for a military takeover of Iraq to avert still-worse terrorism in the future…
Call it the Lewis Doctrine. ..Mr. Lewis’s diagnosis of the Muslim world’s malaise, andhis call for a U.S. military invasion to seed democracy in the Mideast... As mentor and informal adviser to some top U.S. officials, Mr. Lewis has helped coax the White House to shed decades of thinking about Arab regimes and the use of military power. Gone is the notion that U.S. policy in the oil-rich region should promote stability above all, even if it means taking tyrants as friends. Also gone is the corollary notion that fostering democratic values in these lands risks destabilizing them. Instead, the Lewis Doctrine says fostering Mideast democracy is not only wise but imperative.
Waldman also demonstrated how Lewis successfully indoctrinated the ultimate Bush II administration leadership to pursue his utopian design: President George W. Bush, Vice-President Dick Cheney, and most likely, National Security adviser (and later Secretary of State), Condoleeza Rice, as well.
Veronika Wascher-Goggerle, the Women's and Family representative of the district, is behind the launch and said the press-on tattoos would also help raise awareness over the growing issue of sex attacks in swimming pools.
The Bodenseekreis is famous for its bathing and boasts numerous indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
Alleged sex attacks by migrants have caused heated debate in the area over the last few months and some pools are hiring extra security - or even banning asylum seekers altogether.
However, Wascher-Goggerle does not want to associate her campaign with any problems with migrants, stating that there have always been sexual abuse problems at swimming pools, even before the start of the refugee crisis.
She said: "I think many girls are insecure. What is normal in daily interactions and what should not be allowed and needs to be reported?
“Illustrations have been made available at swimming pools and should make this clear.
"The temporary tattoos are an incentive for young swimmers to think about the issue."
To THINK about the issue. But obviously, not to think TOO CLEARLY about the issue.
In more than a dozen email exchanges, Abedin provided expedited, direct access to Clinton for donors who had contributed from $25,000 to $10 million to the Clinton Foundation.
In many instances, Clinton Foundation top executive Doug Band, who worked with the Foundation throughout Hillary Clinton’s tenure at State, coordinated closely with Abedin.
In Abedin’s June deposition to Judicial Watch, she conceded that part of her job at the State Department was taking care of “Clinton family matters.”
Included among the Abedin-Band emails is an exchange revealing that when Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain requested a meeting with Secretary of State Clinton, he was forced to go through the Clinton Foundation for an appointment.
Abedin advised Band that when she went through “normal channels” at State, Clinton declined to meet.
After Band intervened, however, the meeting was set up within forty-eight hours.
According to the Clinton Foundation website, in 2005, Salman committed to establishing the Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CPISP) for the Clinton Global Initiative.
And by 2010, it had contributed $32 million to CGI. The Kingdom of Bahrain reportedly gave between $50,000 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. And Bahrain Petroleum also gave an additional $25,000 to $50,000.
In Pakistan, there are an estimated 50,000 trans men and women in the KP province, and at least half a million nationwide. Roughly 45 trans men and women have been killed in the province in the past year alone, says activist Farzana Jan. This number is, of course, only inclusive of the killings that have been publicly reported.
Masoom accurately describes the reality in Pakistan. She also understands that this particular ugliness is not limited to that country.
Of course, staying within that context would require one to ask uncomfortable questions about the huge common factor between Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates: Islam.
As we've learned, Islam can't be blamed.
Most importantly, violence against trans men and women is not just a non-Western problem. In the United States, 14 trans men and women have been killed in just the past six months alone [...]
Masoom is attempting to convince us that both Islamic and Western societies are violent against transgender people. Here's her big "American" example of violence:
On top of all of this, we also cannot forget about the recent tragedy in Orlando, Fla., when 29 year-old Omar Mateen walked into the Pulse Nightclub and opened fire on the crowd of LGBTQ+ patrons.
That's right. She started her article with the horrific assaults in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and then deviously switched to the carnage in the US caused by an "American" who just, by pure undiluted coincidence, happened to be a Muslim.
Transphobia and homophobia are not problems restricted to any one corner of the world, but are widespread issues in every society that must be rooted out and countered with radical love.
Here's my radical option: honesty regarding the evil of Islam.
Official At Italy’s Islamic University Calls For “New Final Solution” For Jews
From the Times of Israel:
A senior official at the Islamic University in Lecce, Italy has reportedly called for a “new final solution” to the Zionists.
In an August 4 Facebook post, Raphael Villani wrote that “there needs to be a final solution for Zionists,” and that “the real Jews are the victims of Zionism,” according to a report published Sunday by the Ynet news site.
The offending posts were discovered by the Israeli Embassy in Italy, and have since been removed.
Villani, who works in the university’s public relations department, also used the platform to criticize Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.
According to the report, Israeli officials forwarded Villani’s comments to the chairperson of an Israel-Italy inter-parliamentary group, who filed a formal inquiry with the Italian education and interior ministries.
Oh, how funny. CBS took the story down before I even had time to post it.
No truth will penetrate the barrier erected by the Government-Media/Academia Complex.
Here's Gateway Pundit's post on the story:
REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE DONALD TRUMP HAS SURGED TO A 5-POINT LEAD OVER DEMOCRATIC RIVAL HILLARY CLINTON IN THE KEY BATTLEGROUND STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA AS PER A LATEST POLL.
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, August 20, 2016
(Newswire.com) – Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has surged to a 5-point lead over democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania as per the poll conducted by CEPEX Center for Excellence in Project Execution, on Friday (19th Aug 2016).
Trump leads Clinton 41.9 percent to 36.5 percent, with 21.5 percent voters undecided. Trump’s lead is just inside the margin of error and marks the first time that the Republican candidate is catching up in the traditional stronghold state of the democratic party.
“With the undecided voters holding the key which way the state eventually goes in November, both the campaign teams will be tweaking their ground games to win over this key demographic” – Parth Mukherjee, Expert Principal, CEPEX Center for Excellence in Project Execution. “One of the reasons of Trump’s surge is attributable to increasing support from the women” – added Mukherjee.
The poll was conducted by a Canadian consulting firm called CEPEX which works in the oil and gas industry and has no background whatsoever in polling. This is their first.
The guys who run it have no credentials in media work. And a 7%+ margin of error makes it all but useless. Take this with a few truckloads of salt.

Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aide, and the woman who might be the future White House chief of staff to the first female US president, for a decade edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11.
One of Clinton’s biggest accomplishments listed on her campaign Web site is her support for the UN women’s conference in Bejing in 1995, when she famously declared, “Women’s rights are human rights.”
Her speech has emerged as a focal point of her campaign, featured prominently in last month’s Morgan Freeman-narrated convention video introducing her as the Democratic nominee.
However, soon after that “historic and transformational” 1995 event, as Clinton recently described it, her top aide Huma Abedin published articles in a Saudi journal taking Clinton’s feminist platform apart, piece by piece.
At the time, Abedin was assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs working under her mother, who remains editor-in-chief. She was also working in the White House as an intern for then-First Lady Clinton.
Headlined “Women’s Rights are Islamic Rights,” a 1996 article argues that single moms, working moms and gay couples with children should not be recognized as families. It also states that more revealing dress ushered in by women’s liberation “directly translates into unwanted results of sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility and indirectly promote violence against women.”
In other words, sexually liberated women are just asking to be raped.
“A conjugal family established through a marriage contract between a man and a woman, and extended through procreation is the only definition of family a Muslim can accept,” the author, a Saudi official with the Muslim World League, asserted, while warning of “the dangers of alternative lifestyles.” (Abedin’s journal was founded and funded by the former head of the Muslim World League.)
“Pushing [mothers] out into the open labor market is a clear demonstration of a lack of respect of womanhood and motherhood,” it added.
In a separate January 1996 article, Abedin’s mother — who was the Muslim World League’s delegate to the UN conference — wrote that Clinton and other speakers were advancing a “very aggressive and radically feminist” agenda that was un-Islamic and wrong because it focused on empowering women.
“‘Empowerment’ of women does more harm than benefit the cause of women or their relations with men,” Saleha Mahmood Abedin maintained, while forcefully arguing in favor of Islamic laws that have been roundly criticized for oppressing women.
“By placing women in the ‘care and protection’ of men and by making women responsible for those under her charge,” she argued, “Islamic values generate a sense of compassion in human and family relations.”
“Among all systems of belief, Islam goes the farthest in restoring equality across gender,” she claimed. “Acknowledging the very central role women play in procreation, child-raising and homemaking, Islam places the economic responsibility of supporting the family primarily on the male members.”
She seemed to rationalize domestic abuse as a result of “the stress and frustrations that men encounter in their daily lives.” While denouncing such violence, she didn’t think it did much good to punish men for it.
She added in her 31-page treatise: “More men are victims of domestic violence than women . . . If we see the world through ‘men’s eyes’ we will find them suffering from many hardships and injustices.”
She opposed the UN conference widening the scope of the definition of the family to include “gay and lesbian ‘families.’ ”
Huma Abedin does not apologize for her mother’s views. “My mother was traveling around the world to these international women’s conferences talking about women’s empowerment, and it was normal,” she said in a recent profile in Vogue.
Huma continued to work for her mother’s journal through 2008. She is listed as “assistant editor” on the masthead of the 2002 issue in which her mother suggested the US was doomed to be attacked on 9/11 because of “sanctions” it leveled against Iraq and other “injustices” allegedly heaped on the Muslim world.
Here is an excerpt:
“The spiral of violence having continued unabated worldwide, and widely seen to be allowed to continue, was building up intense anger and hostility within the pressure cooker that was kept on a vigorous flame while the lid was weighted down with various kinds of injustices and sanctions . . . It was a time bomb that had to explode and explode it did on September 11, changing in its wake the life and times of the very community and the people it aimed to serve.”
Huma Abedin is Clinton’s longest-serving and, by all accounts, most loyal aide. The devout, Saudi-raised Muslim started working for her in the White House, then followed her to the Senate and later the State Department. She’s now helping run Clinton’s presidential campaign as vice chair and may end up back in the White House.
The contradictions are hard to reconcile. The campaign is not talking, despite repeated requests for interviews.
Until now, these articles which Abedin helped edit and publish have remained under wraps.
Perhaps Clinton was unaware she and her mother took such opposing views.
But that’s hard to believe. Her closest adviser served as an editor for that same Saudi propaganda organ for a dozen years. The same one that in 1999 published a book, edited by her mother, that justifies the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation under Islamic law, while claiming “man-made laws have in fact enslaved women.”
And in 2010, Huma Abedin arranged for then-Secretary of State Clinton to speak alongside Abedin’s hijab-wearing mother at an all-girls college in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
According to a transcript of the speech, Clinton said Americans have to do a better job of getting past “the stereotypes and the mischaracterizations” of the oppressed Saudi woman. She also assured the audience of burqa-clad girls that not all American girls go “around in a bikini bathing suit.”
At no point in her long visit there, which included a question-and-answer session, did this so-called champion of women’s rights protest the human-rights violations Saudi women suffer under the Shariah laws that Abedin’s mother actively promotes. Nothing about the laws barring women from driving or traveling anywhere without male “guardians.”
If fighting for women’s rights is one of Clinton’s greatest achievements, why has she retained as her closest adviser a woman who gave voice to harsh Islamist critiques of her Beijing platform?
Top Hillary Clinton confidante Huma Abedin played no formal role in a radical Muslim journal — even though she was listed as an editor on the hate-filled periodical’s masthead for a dozen years, a campaign rep claimed Sunday.
“My understanding is that her name was simply listed on the masthead in that period,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said hours after The Post broke the bombshell story. “She did not play a role in editing at the publication.”
Merrill said Abedin was just a figurehead and not actually on staff at the Saudi-based and -funded Journal of Minority Muslim Affairs, which featured radically anti-feminist views and backed strict Islamic laws roundly criticized for oppressing women.
...Her brother, who was an associate editor, and a sister, also employed as an assistant editor, are listed as staff members.
Yes, that's right. Her name was on the masthead. Here it is:
Imagine someone put your name on the masthead as being responsible for the publication of articles calling for women to have their clits hacked off.
But it is sharia law that mandates the killing of gays. The few Islamic countries that don't slaughter homosexuals are the ones who are ignoring sharia. The Land of Saud, Mesopotamia, Persia, and the Land of the Pure are actually following evil Islam to the letter. Those who believe in sharia, by definition, don't support Freedom and Liberty. They are, and always have been, the enemies of the West.
Of course, this means Islam is the enemy. And we can't have that. Islam can't be blamed. So, how does one square the circle? Sally Kohn, the devious dyke, will illustrate:

BERLIN (Reuters) - For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government plans to tell citizens to stockpile food and water in case of an attack or catastrophe, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper reported on Sunday.
Germany is currently on high alert after two Islamist attacks and a shooting rampage by a mentally unstable teenager last month. Berlin announced measures earlier this month to spend considerably more on its police and security forces and to create a special unit to counter cyber crime and terrorism.
"The population will be obliged to hold an individual supply of food for ten days," the newspaper quoted the government's "Concept for Civil Defence" - which has been prepared by the Interior Ministry - as saying.
The paper said a parliamentary committee had originally commissioned the civil defense strategy in 2012.
A spokesman for the Interior Ministry said the plan would be discussed by the cabinet on Wednesday and presented by the minister that afternoon. He declined to give any details on the content.
People will be required to stockpile enough drinking water to last for five days, according to the plan, the paper said.
The 69-page report does not see an attack on Germany's territory, which would require a conventional style of national defense, as likely.
However, the precautionary measures demand that people "prepare appropriately for a development that could threaten our existence and cannot be categorically ruled out in the future," the paper cited the report as saying.
It also mentions the necessity of a reliable alarm system, better structural protection of buildings and more capacity in the health system, the paper said.
A further priority should be more support of the armed forces by civilians, it added.Germany's Defence Minister said earlier this month the country lay in the "crosshairs of terrorism" and pressed for plans for the military to train more closely with police in preparing for potential large-scale militant attacks.
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi hosts German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande on an island off the coast of Naples ahead of September's EU summit called to discuss reverberations from the Brexit vote.
"They will be coming to discuss how to relaunch Europe from the bottom up, there's a big need," Renzi said on Sunday.
"Relaunching Europe is a totally open game but it needs to be played," he said.
The paranoid among us might wonder if the European leaders would be so evil as to allow a cataclysmic Jihad attack on European soil as a way to take control of the European population to "Relaunch Europe".
Tunisian Vlogger Begs The West To Obliterate Islam
He blames the problem on our friendship with the Saudi and Qatari Kings.
I would add Iran to that. However, as our friend, Niconarg points out, Shias do not, generally, do Individual Jihad.
On the other hand, Iran funds Sunni terrorism, through it's support of Hamas. So, I don't know whether it's quite true that the Shia are not, also, virulent Jihadists.
So yeah, I'd throw Iran in there too.
Our problem is we support the very leaders of the Muslim world who support our destruction. They then turn out and hand a good deal of the money we give them to the Preachers of Jihad who call for our deaths.
How fucking stupid are we?
Trump for President. He is our last hope to NOT have to do what this man calls for; Go Nuclear on Mecca.
The news has been under a mandated embargo since Tuesday, August 16th. But the words of United States Senator Tim Kaine (D- Virginia) are apparently a pre-framed monologue for the announcement released today.
Anne Holton (wife of Senator Kaine) will be moving to Pakistan next month. As the Secretary of Education for the state of Virginia she will put her talents to work for the little girls of the nation.
Less than eighteen percent of little girls in Pakistan attend secondary education. Forty-seven percent of the women are either fully or functionally illiterate.
Value is not ascribed for the education of women. And as Islamic political forces continue to push for legal marriage at age nine years for little girls the outlook remains grim.
After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts from NYU Tisch School of the Arts in 2017, Annella Kaine will put her talents to work to introduce little girls in Pakistan to the world of theater and music. She will join her mother, living along the Durand Line, to further facilitate a modest reach into Afghanistan and the Islamic culture which forbids a full embrace of the expressive art forms which we enjoy in the West.
Anne and Annella will face grave physical danger and the very real risk of sexual violence since Pakistan ranks third on a global list for most dangerous countries for women.
In anticipation for their need for invisibility whilst residing along the borders of two nations which cherish diminished physical presence of women in the public square a personal shopper has graciously purchased culturally acceptable fashion for Anne and her daughter Annella:
Shuttlecock Burka and Mandatory Purdah
Those of us who burned our bras, received university degrees and served as Naval military officers applaud Senator Tim Kaine for his clarity of thought.
We also extend our deepest respect for his willingness to put his money where his mouth is. (Yes, I ended a sentence in a linking verb, but I am fully literate, educated, enjoy a career and am currently seated at my desktop in skimpy pajamas.)
Our prayers are not needed for Anne and Annella. They are getting a civilizational upgrade. No doubt about it.
Senator Kaine would not use statistics to serve up a greater lie.
Full transcript of speech by Donald J. Trump in Dimondale, Mich.
What a crowd. Thank you. I love Michigan – and come November, with your help, we are going to win Michigan, and we are going to win the White House.
It’s going to be a victory for the people. A victory for the wage-earner, the factory worker, a victory for the everyday citizen – and for all the people whose voice hasn’t been heard.
It will be a win for the voters – not the pundits, not the journalists, not the lobbyists, not the global special interests funding my opponent’s campaign.
This is going to be YOUR victory.
These are hard times for many in this country. I just got back from a tour of the suffering and devastation in Louisiana. We mourn for the lives lost, and we pledge our help, comfort and support to every last person in need. To the people of Louisiana: We are with you, and we will always be with you.
In my visit, I saw not only the suffering of our people, but also their strength, courage and unbeatable spirit. Their spirit will overcome.
It’s that amazing spirit that we will need to rebuild this country. It’s that strength we are going to need to create the New American Future our children deserve.
In this new future, millions of workers on the sidelines will be returned to the workforce.
Crumbling roads, bridges and airports will be replaced with the infrastructure our country needs and deserves.
Families trapped in welfare will be provided with jobs and opportunity.
Children stuck in failing government schools will be able to attend the school of their families’ choice.
Government will become lean, effective, responsible – and honest.
Our border will be protected, and our children will be safe.
Law and order will be restored, and the poorest places in our country will know safety and peace.
American values and culture will be cherished and celebrated once again.
But to achieve this New American Future, we must break free from the bitter failures of the past – and reject the same insiders telling us the same old lies.
No group in America has been more harmed by Hillary Clinton’s policies than African-Americans. If Hillary Clinton’s goal was to inflict pain on the African-American community, she couldn’t have done a better job.
Tonight, I am asking for the vote of every African-American citizen in this country who wants a better future.
The inner cities of our country have been run by the Democratic Party for 50 years. Their policies have produced only poverty, joblessness, failing schools, and broken homes.
It is time to hold Democratic Politicians accountable for what they have done to these communities. It is time to hold failed leaders accountable for their results, not just their empty words.
Look at what the Democratic Party has done to the city of Detroit.
Forty percent of Detroit’s residents live in poverty. Half of all Detroit residents do not work.
Detroit tops the list of Most Dangerous Cities in terms of violent crime.
This is the legacy of the Democrat politicians who have run this city. This is the result of the policy agenda embraced by Hillary Clinton.
The only way to change results is to change leadership.
We can never fix our problems by relying on the same politicians who created our problems in the first place.
A new future requires new leadership.
Look at how much African-American communities have suffered under Democratic Control. To those hurting, I say: what do you have to lose by trying something new?
One thing we know for sure is that if you keep voting for the same people you will keep getting the same result.
My Administration will go to work for you as no one ever has.
By contrast, the one thing every item in Hillary Clinton’s agenda has in common is that it takes jobs and opportunities from African-American workers. Her support for open borders. Her fierce opposition to school choice. Her plan to massively raise taxes on small businesses. Her opposition to American energy. And her record of giving our jobs away to other countries.
America must reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton who sees communities of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future.
Hillary Clinton would rather provide a job
to a refugee from overseas than to give that job to unemployed African-American youth in cities like Detroit who have become refugees in their own country.
It is time to get our country back to work, and that includes an all-out effort to help young African-Americans get the good-paying jobs they deserve.
Hillary Clinton’s plan would bring in an estimated 620,000 refugees in her first term – at a lifetime benefit cost of some $400 billion dollars, according to the U.S. Senate Immigration Subcommittee. She wants to be America’s Angela Merkel. By the way, for the price of supporting 1 refugee in the United States, we could support 12 in a safe zone in the Middle East.
The improved refugee screening standards I have proposed will save countless billions of dollars. We will invest a portion of the money saved in a jobs program for inner city youth.
The African-American community has given so much to this country. They’ve fought and died in every war since the Revolution. They’ve lifted up the conscience of our nation in the long march for Civil Rights. They’ve sacrificed so much for the national good. Yet, nearly 4 in 10 African-American children still live in poverty, and 58% of young African-Americans are not working.
We must do better as a country. I refuse to believe that the future must be like the past.
In a Trump Administration, all workers – of all colors – will get priority for jobs in their own country. I want higher wages for African-Americans, for Hispanic-Americans, for all Americans.
Hillary Clinton is a throwback to an ugly past where politicians preyed on our poorest citizens while selling them out for personal gain.
We must turn the page on yesterday. Only a change in leadership will produce a change in outcomes.
In this New American Future, American workers will always come first.
This will include a complete revitalization of the Michigan manufacturing sector, which has been so badly hurt by Hillary Clinton’s policies.
We are bringing the jobs back to Michigan.
Michigan lost more than 1 in 4 of its manufacturing jobs since NAFTA. As you know, NAFTA was signed by President Bill Clinton. It was supported by Hillary Clinton.
Right here, in this community, you’ve lost 1 in 7 manufacturing jobs since Bill Clinton put China into the World Trade Organization – another Hillary Clinton-backed deal.
Detroit lost more than 1 in 3 manufacturing jobs following the NAFTA and WTO agreements supported by my opponent.
No industry has been hurt more by Hillary Clinton’s policies than the car industry. It’s been a total disaster.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, before NAFTA went into effect, there were 285,000 auto workers in Michigan. Today, that number is only 160,000.
In 2014, GM announced plans to double its investments in Mexico by 2018.
In April 2016, Ford Motor Company announced plans to invest $1.6 billion constructing an auto plant in Mexico.
That same month, Fiat Chrysler announced 1,300 layoffs. Lear Corporation launched plans to build two new factories in Mexico.
The list goes on and on.
We will turn it all around. But to do that, we have to win in November.
The destruction that NAFTA started will be finished off if the Trans-Pacific Partnership is approved.
We know from Hillary’s closest friend, Terry McAuliffe, that she is planning to ram through the TPP if she’s elected. She even called the TPP the “gold standard.”
It’s passage would be a disaster. We won’t let it happen.
According to the Economic Policy Institute, the U.S. trade deficit with the proposed TPP member countries cost over 1 million manufacturing jobs in 2015.
By far the biggest losses occurred in motor vehicles and parts, which lost nearly 740,000 manufacturing jobs.
Michigan ranks first for jobs lost as a share of state workforce due to the trade deficit with TPP members.
Just imagine how many more automobile jobs will be lost if Hillary gets her wish and approves the TPP. That is why I have announced we will withdraw from the deal before that can ever happen.
I have previously laid out a detailed 7-point plan for trade reform, available on my website. It includes strong protections against currency manipulation from counties like China, and tariffs against any nation that cheats by unfairly subsidizing their goods. My plan also includes a renegotiation of NAFTA. If we don’t get a better deal, we will walk away.
We want trade deals. But we want trade deals that work for America – that create jobs and wealth in our country.
We want to shrink our trade deficit, not expand it. We want to be leading the world in production, exports and manufacturing. We want jobs to leave other countries and come to our country.
Another major issue in this race is foreign policy. Hillary Clinton has made one bad foreign policy decision after another – beginning with her support for going to war in Iraq in the first place, which I opposed.
Her tenure as Secretary of State may be regarded as the most disastrous in U.S. history, but yet she is totally without remorse.
Her failed decisions as Secretary of State unleashed ISIS onto the world.
But has she ever apologized for the death and destruction she has caused?
Look at the world before and after she became Secretary of State.
Pre-Hillary, in early 2009, Iraq was seeing a reduction in violence.
Libya was stable.
Syria was under control.
The group we know today as ISIS was close to being extinguished.
Iran was being choked by sanctions.
Now, fast-forward to present time.
After Hillary, here is what the world looks like:
Iraq is in total chaos.
Syria is in the midst of a disastrous civil war and a refugee crisis now threatens Europe and the United States.
ISIS has been unleashed onto the entire world.
Iran – the world’s top state sponsor of terrorism – has been put on the path to nuclear weapons, and was given a $400 million ransom payment, something which has now been confirmed after President Obama’s lies.
This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction and terrorism.
America deserves a better legacy. All of you deserve a better future. I am the change agent. Hillary Clinton is the defender of the status quo.
While our country lost badly under Hillary Clinton, she cashed in big time. Bill Clinton’s speaking fees surged while Hillary was Secretary of State – Bill was paid almost $50 million for speeches during her tenure, an increase of 44% over the previous 4 years.
Then there was all the money funneled into the Clinton Foundation from foreign governments and corporations.
It was pay-for-play.
Yet, Hillary Clinton, who is indifferent to the suffering she has caused, has no remorse. She offers no apologies for selling government favors. No apologies for unleashing ISIS. No apologies for open borders. No apologies for lying about her emails, or about Benghazi.
The only way to learn the full depth of her public corruption is to read the 33,000 emails she deleted.
And the only way to get justice in this rigged system is to show up and vote on November 8th– and to vote big.
Are you ready to vote for the future you want?
Are you ready to vote for the honest government you deserve?
A Trump Administration will end the corruption and restore integrity to government service.
No one will be above the law.
In A Trump Administration, the State Department will work for the country – not for Hillary Clinton’s donors.
And I will work for you – and for no one else.
I will never lie to you, I will never put any other interest before you, and I will never, every stop fighting for you.
The government will work for the people again.
That means we are only going to admit individuals into our country who support our values, and we’re not going to issue visas where adequate screening cannot take place. We will also seek to join in partnership with any nation that wishes to join us in defeating and destroying ISIS.
At home, taxes will go down, especially for middle-income Americans. And small business rates will be lowered to 15 percent, so we can put millions of news job into our poorest neighborhoods.
Obamacare will be repealed and replaced.
Voters, not special interests, will be in charge.
Finally, we are going to bring our country together again. The era of division will be replaced with a future of unity.
We are going to do it by emphasizing what we all have in common as Americans.
It is time to break with the failures of the past, and to fight for every last child in this country to have the better future they deserve.
In my Administration, every American will be treated equally, protected equally, and honored equally. We will reject bigotry and hatred and oppression in all of its forms, and seek a new future built on our common culture and values as one American people.
This is the change I am promising all of you: an honest government, a thriving economy, and a just society for each and every American.
All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.
The Untold Story of Muslim Opinions & Demographics
Infidel Babe Of The Week
Moran Atias - TYRANT
IBA Quote of the Week.
What essentially occurred is that the center-right (a majority in America) woke up to the fact that we no longer have a two-party system; we have one party representing the radical left (Democrat), and one stealth progressive party (Republican) that exists only to provide a foil for the former. Both parties stand for advancing international socialism – the only argument between them being how quickly we will get there.
And as we can see, Americans don’t much care for this arrangement.
-- Erik Rush on the Trump Phenomenon
"An Islamic regime must be serious in every field," explained Ayatollah Khomeini. "There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humour in Islam. There is no fun in Islam."
"I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It's real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let's not pretend it isn't." ~~~~~Bono~~~~~
