Happy 2017- The End of the Obama Era Arrives

It's been a rough year for many. In fact, it's been a rough 8 years, and I'm absolutely delighted that this will be the last New Year's eve with Barack Obama as our president.  Even though his campaign mantra was hope and change, he brought no hope, and the change he created has been abysmal. During his two-term reign, race relations have plummeted to an all-time low. He managed to divide this country on every level possible, and it's going to take a long while to recover. In all my many years, I have never experienced anything like it.

All the things people complain about Donald Trump, Obama also has in spades.  He's arrogant, mean-spirited at times, a mega narcissist (hello, Mr soon-to-be-ex President, there is no way in heck that you would have won against Trump), and yet liberals still love him. They still think he's one of the best presidents we have ever had, though I believe he will go down in history as one of the worst.Actually, he'll have to duke that title out with Jimmy Carter,

Aside from the very sad state of race relations in this country, he brought us the Affordable Care Act, which is far from affordable. Obamacare been a disaster for all but a few fortunate ones. The rest of us have suffered with skyrocketing premiums, huge deductibles, and loss of our preferred doctors. Remember he promised we would not lose them? Well, many did. Remember he said you could keep your plan. Many people lost their plans. Even many of my liberal friends are complaining

And he's doing his damnedest to cause havoc before Trump takes control. He threw our only democratic ally in the Middle East- Israel-  under the bus by abstaining on the U.N. vote condemning Israeli settlements. No-one, including Obama and Kerry, seems to realize that peace between Israel and Palestine will only happen when Palestine chooses to accept Israel's right to exist. That's not going to happen any time soon.

Then there's Russia.  What's that all about?  Yes, I'm sure Russia has been spying, just as we and probably every other nation in the world has, but blaming Trump's win on Russian hacking is ludicrous. Unless Obama has proof that Russia hacked the actual ballots during the election, starting another potential cold war over the fact that Trump beat Hillary Clinton is downright evil.  Especially since it was Hillary's fault she lost.  The presidency was hers for the taking, and she lost. So Obama sanctions Russia, and yet lifts sanctions on Iran, in spite of the fact that they still consider us the Great Satan, are steps away from nuclear weapons (whether he believes it or not), detained and humiliated 10 of our sailors.

He also plans on releasing more Guantanamo detainees before he leaves office, even though the rate of recidivism is as high as 30%.

I tried to like him, I really did, and I prayed he would prove me wrong, but I can't think of anything positive, other than Osama Bin Laden was caught during his presidency.

So, I look forward to a Trump presidency, though it won't be easy for him.  I pray he listens to those who know better, and that he can make America great again.

A blessed and prosperous New Year to you all!

PC Police Shame Steve Martin Into Deleting Tweet Tribute To Carrie Fisher

Actor/Comedian Steve Martin wrote a rather innocuous Tweet as a tribute in response to the untimely death of his good friend Carrie Fisher.

"When I was a young man, Carrie Fisher she was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen. She turned out to be witty and bright as well."
 Then the PC patrol came along and lambasted him for his so-called "sexist" remark, so Martin caved to the easily offended and deleted the Tweet.

I'm female, and I find nothing offensive about his comment. It's not like he mentioned her great body parts. There is nothing sexual implied. Someone commented on a FB post that she was surprised that I  did not recognize what's at stake here.  What's at stake here is free speech, I find that far more dangerous than some feminist taking offense to some backhanded compliment.

Robert De Niro Willing To Give Trump A Chance

Remember during the contentious presidential campaign when Robert De Niro told us he'd like to punch would-be-president Donald Trump in the face, saying:
“He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con, a bullshit artist…he talks about how he’d like to punch people in the face. Well, I’d like to punch him in the face.”
Well, now he's decided to wait and hope.

His message to President-Elect Trump:
“I would only say that we’re all hoping, waiting and hoping, that he will lead the country in a way that’ll benefit everyone and benefit our neighbors around the world...
“We’re waiting and hoping, and we’ll see.”
Good for him, at least he's willing to give Trump a chance, unlike the myriad of angry liberals trying to find any way they can to get Hillary Clinton into the White House.

Grubhub Boss Tells Employees To Quit If They Are Pro-Trump

Grubhub is an online service that allows you to order food from local restaurants that deliver. Matt Maloney is the CEO. On Wednesday November 9th, his employees received a post-election email telling them that if anyone agrees with anything Donald Trump has said during his campaign they should quit.

“If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here,” wrote Matt Maloney, Co-Founder of Grubhub. “We do not tolerate hateful attitudes on our team."

Wow.  Talk about hateful. As if anyone would have the guts to admit they voted for Trump, considering the vitriol and unbridled anger that Hillary Clinton supporters have unleashed on Trump supporters.

Snippets from his email:

“I absolutely reject the nationalist, anti-immigrant and hateful politics of Donald Trump and will work to shield our community from this movement as best as I can."

“I want to reaffirm to anyone on our team that is scared or feels personally exposed, that I and everyone else here at Grubhub will fight for your dignity and your right to make a better life for yourself and your family here in the United States.”

Apparently, "almost 20 percent" thanked him.

Only 20%? That's telling.

Shame on you Matt Maloney. Politics has no place in the workplace.

Maybe #thedeplorables should consider boycotting #grubhub, like the left has done on numerous occasions. Remember ChikFilA?

Woman Whose Question Was Leaked To Clinton Campaign Pre-Debate- Clinton "should be disqualified"

We all know that CNN's now-fired Donna Brazile gave the Clinton campaign a head start by providing a question that Hillary Clinton was to be asked during the CNN presidential debate.

That particular question was asked by Lee-Anne Walters who was recently interviewed on Fox's Happening Now.

Lee-Anne Walters identified herself as the “woman with a rash” who wanted to ask Clinton about her plan to address the poison water crisis that continues to afflict Flint, Michigan. Hacked emails from WikiLeaks revealed that when Brazile was still with her old network, she somehow got hold of Walters’ question, and then sent campaign chairman John Podesta advanced notice of what was coming.

When asked how she felt about the news, Walters said that Clinton “should be disqualified because she had had an advantage she shouldn’t have had.” Walters also said that she was “disgusted” by Clinton’s answer, describing it as a “cop-out” that would not adequately address the lead in the city’s water.

In spite of everything, she's still undecided about who to vote for. She should be as disgusted by what happened as she is with Clinton's response, as should anyone with a moral compass.

And this wasn't the only topic that Brazile forked over to Clinton's people. Apparently, there was another topic, that we know of.

Pro Trump Lesbian Berates Hillary Clinton's Gay Campaign Manager- Video

61-year-old lesbian excoriates Hillary Clinton's gay campaign manager, Bobby Mook, for supporting a woman who has taken millions from Muslim countries that imprison and execute gays.

There aren't many like her, but there are a few. Most of my gay theatre friends are very pro-Hillary. I can't understand why.

Snopes Caught Lying For Hillary Clinton

The first thing we do when we want to fact check some story making the Internet rounds is check various sources like Snopes,  the "definitive Internet reference source for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumors, and misinformation," or so the owners claim.  They claim they are non-partisan and unbiased, but are they?

According to Your News Wire: Snopes lies, in favor of  liberals.

Snopes has been caught lying again, proving that it has a political and partisan agenda and it is willing to mislead and deceive its readers in order to advance the cause of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party establishment.

Earlier this year Correct the Record, a pro-Clinton Super PAC, admitted they are spending millions of dollars to employ an army of trolls to “correct” and “push back” against internet users who criticize Clinton.

Correct The Record’s “Barrier Breakers” project admitted in a press release that it pays people to pretend to be Clinton supporters, and claims that thousands of unsuspecting social media users have already been “addressed” by the PAC’s mercenary social media warriors – with the promise that many more will be “corrected” in the near future.

Given that Snopes entered the political fact checking game around the same time, and began publishing more political articles than ever before – most of which display a clear Clinton bias – it is legitimate to ask if Snopes is also on the Correct The Record payroll.

Ethics Alarms has been tracking the increasing political bias exhibited by Snopes, once the definitive “Urban Legends” web source to identify false stories on the internet, e-mail hoaxes and other pollution of public information.

Bulgaria To Ban The Burqa

Bulgaria has joined several other European countries in banning the burqa or any other full face covering for anyone out in public. If women don't comply they face a hefty fine and loss of their benefits.

The Bulgarian parliament approved the law, backed by the nationalist Patriotic Front coalition. The party’s co-leader Krasimir Karakachanov said the law would improve security, saying: “the burqa is more a uniform than a religious symbol”.

Women who break the law will face fines of up to €770 or £665, as well as a suspension of social security benefits.

The law, however, has its many detractors.

[snip] the Movement for Rights and Freedoms party, which opposed the bill, walked out of the chamber in protest.

In a statement, Amnesty International UK condemned the ban. John Dalhuisen, Europe Director of the human rights organisation, said: “Women in Bulgaria should be free to dress as they please and to wear the burqa or the niqab as an expression of their identity or beliefs. This ban violates their rights to freedom of expression and religion.

“This law is part of a disturbing trend of intolerance, xenophobia and racism in Bulgaria.

“Legitimate security concerns can be met with targeted restrictions on the complete covering of the face in well-defined high-risk locations and not through a blanket discriminatory ban such as this.”
Interesting to note, most of the other countries that have imposed a similar ban- Belgium, France and the Netherlands- have a large Muslim population, many of whom refuse to integrate. Of the 7.1 million people who live in Bulgaria, 10 percent are Muslim. No doubt, that percentage will increase.

They have their reasons for banning:

Earlier this year, head of the Bulgarian city Pazardjik Rumen Kozhuharov said: “The main thing that motivated and catalysed this [discussions about banning face veils] were the terrorist attacks that happened in European countries and the increasing flow of migrants who entered the country in the past few years.”

Banning a symbol of political Islam, is not xenophobic, racist or intolerant. It's survival. It's not like they're banning the hijab. Full face coverings have no place in modern Western civilization.

Iran Will Force Female Chess Players To Wear Hijabs At 2017 World Championships

In March 2017, Iran is hosting the Women's World Championship of Chess, and the female players are being forced to wear the hijab if they want to compete.

What I'd like to know is why the heck are we honoring a country that oppresses women, with a world Chess championship? A country that executes homosexuals and child criminals? A country that will arbitrarily arrest and jail foreigners without reason, and sometimes execute them?

Chess’ governing body, FIDE (Fédération Internationale des Échecs), has come under criticism for its decision to host the tournament in Iran and was accused of failing to stand up for women’s rights.

English chess champion Nigel Short tweeted that the FIDE was flouting its own statutes against sex and religious discrimination.

The body’s Commission for Women’s Chess defended the move, calling on participants to respect “cultural differences”.

Apparently, there are some competitors who are saying they will boycott:

US Women’s Champion Nazi Paikidze also expressed her frustration that she would “have to miss her first Women’s World Championship for many reasons” and tweeted a link to the US State Department’s warning about American citizens still being at heightened risk of arrest.
The Georgian-born champion told The Daily Telegraph: "It is absolutely unacceptable to host one of the most important women's tournaments in a venue where, to this day, women are forced to cover up with a hijab.
"I understand and respect cultural differences. But, failing to comply can lead to imprisonment and women's rights are being severely restricted in general.
"It does not feel safe for women from around the world to play here.”
She said she felt “honoured” to qualify for the event but that she was unlikely to attend.

Carla Heredia, from Ecuador agrees.

The former Pan American champion, Ecuadorian Carla Heredia, agreed with Ms Paikidze, telling the newspaper: “No institution, no government, nor a Women's World Chess Championship should force women to wear or to take out a hijab”.

But there are others who don't have a problem with being forced to wear a headscarf.

.. Hungarian Grandmaster Susan Polgar said in a statement that she would have “no issues with wearing a headscarf as long as it is the same for all players”.
She said: “When I visited different places with different cultures, I like to show my respect by dressing up in their traditional style of clothing . No one asked me to do it. I just do it out of respect.”

Perhaps we should force hijab-wearing women coming to the U.S. to remove their head coverings because it doesn't jibe with our Western culture.

Shame on the FIDE for even thinking of holding the competition in Tehran!

2016- Fifteen Years Since 9/11- Never Forget

Hard to believe it has been 15 years since that horrific day- September 11, 2001- when a bunch of Muslim extremists started what has become an escalating violent battle against Western civilization. 

Since then, Al-Qaeda has splintered, the Islamic State (ISIS) has now taken center stage, and they all have a common goal- they want Islam to dominate the world, and will mercilessly kill anyone to accomplish that goal. 

Since then, we've had 15 more years of violence. Thousands upon thousands of people have been massacred by the evil scourge of the world. And all I know is that I am sick of the slaughter. However, I also realize it will not end, at least not any time soon, and probably not in my lifetime.  

Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri threatened the US that the September 11, 2001 attacks will be repeated "thousands of times", in a video marking the 15th anniversary of the deadly assault.
Addressing the United States in a video message posted Thursday on YouTube, Zawahiri blamed 9/11 on "your crimes against us".

This is why we must never forget. Since 2001, it's happened in Europe and elsewhere, perhaps not on the scale of our 9/11, but don't think it can't happen again. Here. This is why our porous borders need to be secured. This is why Muslim immigrants and tourists need to be vetted. They did it with people from Communist countries during the Cold War, it needs to be done now.

Homeland Security has posted a series of publications and documents from the 9/11 attack.

Swiss School Caves To Male Student Muslim Demands- No Shaking Female Teachers Hands

A school in Switzerland has caved to the religious demands of two Muslim male students who refuse to shake hands with their female teachers.

What next, demands for segregated classrooms?

And thus continues the  Islamization of the world.

Male Muslim students at a school in northern Switzerland will no longer have to shake hands with their female teachers, following a ruling that has caused an uproar across the country.

A school in the northern municipality of Therwil, in the canton of Basel, reached the controversial decision after two male students, aged 14 and 15, complained that the Swiss custom of shaking hands with the teacher is counter to their religious beliefs if the teacher is a woman.

They argued that Islam does not permit physical contact with a person of the opposite sex, with the exception of certain immediate family members.

The local Therwil council did not support the school's decision, but said it "will not intervene as [it] is the responsibility of the school to set the rules," spokeswoman Monika Wyss said.

The decision triggered an outcry across Switzerland, with the Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga insisting on Swiss public television Monday that "shaking hands is part of our culture".

U.K. Muslim Shopkeeper Murdered After Wishing Happy Easter On Facebook

A Muslim shop owner was brutally murdered just hours after he wished Christians a Happy Easter on his Facebook Page. This didn't happen in some Muslim-majority country, no, this happened in good old Glasgow, Scotland, by fellow Muslims.

A devout Muslim shopkeeper was savagely killed in the street shortly after posting an Easter message “to my beloved Christian nation”.

Asad Shah, 40, died from injuries sustained in the attack on Thursday night in which his killers are believed to have stabbed him and stamped on his head. Medics tried to save him but he died in hospital.

Police Scotland, who have arrested a man in connection with the attack, said they were treating the death as “religiously prejudiced”.

According to a witness, two men attacked Shah, and:

“One was stamping on his head. There was a pool of blood on the ground. ”

What he wrote that provoked the murder:

“Good Friday and a very Happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nation... Let’s follow the real footstep of beloved holy Jesus Christ (PBUH) [peace be upon him], and get the real success in both worlds xxxx.”

According to the Daily Mail (see link below) Shah was apparently an Ahmadi Muslim. They are a kinder, gentler sect whose members are persecuted in most of the mainstream Muslim countries. They believe in non-violence and co-existence with other faiths.

This is what happens to those who assimilate, integrate, and try to live in peace.

Pope Washes and Kisses Feet of Muslim Migrants

Good Lord. The current Pope Francis decided it was a good thing to wash and kiss the feet of migrants as part of Holy Thursday. He claims we are all children of the same God. Perhaps he should have saved that kneeling for just the Catholics and Copts, because Hindu's believe in a slew of God's, and the Muslims, although they too allegedly believe in the Abrahamic God, believe non-Muslims are Infidels. So, the Muslims must have had a good old laugh as the Infidel Pope prostrated himself before them.

They came from Mali, Eritrea, Syria and Pakistan. They were Muslim, Hindu, Catholic and Coptic Christians. And one by one, Pope Francis knelt down before these migrants on Holy Thursday and washed their feet.

The ritual, performed in a center for asylum seekers outside of Rome, comes amid anti-immigrant sentiment in Europe and in the wake of a terrorist attack in Brussels, for which the Islamic State has claimed responsibility.

The foot-washing ritual became a part of Holy Thursday Mass in the 1950s. Jesus washed the feet of his 12 apostles at the Last Supper. The symbolic act also imitates Jesus's gesture of servitude.

A number of the migrants whose feet were washed by the pope had tears streaming down their faces.

The Vatican said eight men and four women took part in the ritual, AP reported, including an Italian Catholic; three Eritrean Coptic Christians; four Catholics from Nigeria; three Muslims from Mali, Syria and Pakistan; and a Hindu man from India.

Emory Students Traumatized By Trump 2016 Signs, Get Emergency Counseling

Here's one for the 'good grief files'.

Some students at the prestigious Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, were so freaked out about seeing some  "Trump 2016" signs written in chalk around the campus, the university is now providing emergency counseling for the poor wee traumatized millennials.

According to student paper The Emory Wheel, the triggered students protested outside the administration building chanting, “You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!”

“I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe,” one female student said. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well … I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school.”

The university quickly responded in an email: “By nature of the fact that for a significant portion of our student population, the messages represent particularly bigoted opinions, policies, and rhetoric directed at populations represented at Emory University, we would like to express our concern regarding the values espoused by the messages displayed, and our sympathy for the pain experienced by members of our community.”

“It is clear to us that these statements are triggering for many of you,” they continued. “As a result, both College Council and the Student Government Association pledge to stand in solidarity with those communities who feel threatened by this incident and to help navigate the student body through it and the environment of distrust and unease it has created.”
This might be laughable, but what I find truly frightening is that they are actively investigating who the culprit might be so that they can deal with them through Emory's "conduct violation process."

What happened to free speech.  Love or hate Trump, people have the right to vote for whomever they choose.

Aussie 60 Minutes Video- Europe's Migrant Crisis, Crew Attacked In Sweden

An eye opening Australian "60 Minutes" segment about the catastrophic European refugee/migrant crisis.

I'm not sure when this aired, but it states that Sweden took in 165,000 refugees the prior year- as a result the country is on the brink of an economic and cultural disaster. There are currently 55 no go zones in Sweden, areas where police are forced to escort ambulances to ensure their safety. Just how unsafe is it?  In one suburb of Stockholm, inhabited by mostly Somali Muslims, some punk ran down the 60 minutes cameraman, then later the crew was attacked by a bunch of masked young African men.

Sweden's humanitarian and welfare state is coming back to bite them in their butts. Big time.

Pakistani Hardliners- New Law Protecting Women Is Un-Islamic

Pakistan isn't like Afghanistan. And it's a tad more progressive than say, Iran or Saudi Arabia when it comes to its women folk. There are no religious police out on the streets making sure women are covered. Unlike Saudi Arabia, they can drive. Universities are not segregated. Heck, they even elected a female Prime Minister. Twice. Although Benazir Bhutto was eventually assassinated she served two terms from 1984 through 1993. Of course, that was back then when Muslims weren't quite so fanatical and hardline as they are today. But although their legal system is rooted in British common law, the Penal Code often adheres to Islamic Shariah law and many of its barbaric practises, including death for apostasy and blasphemy. Any attempts to change the more radical Islamic laws, like Blasphemy and child marriage laws are met with major resistance, and often violence from a slew of religious hardliners.

The latest child marriage law ban never came to fruition because of opposition from the hardliners who actually want girls as young as nine to be eligible to marry, as per Shariah law.  And now, they want a new law protecting women to go bye-bye. There's a lot of domestic abuse within the Islamic nuclear family, so that's not surprising.

More than 35 religious parties and groups in Pakistan have come together to call on the government retract a new law in the country's largest province of Punjab that protects women from abuse. Claiming that the law is unIslamic, they accuse the law of being part of the West's agenda to destroy the family system in Pakistan.
The Women's Protection Act was passed by Punjab in February to protect women from domestic, psychological and sexual violence. It also calls for the setting up of a toll-free abuse reporting hot line, women's shelters and district-level panels to investigate reports of abuse. The new law also mandates the use of GPS bracelets to keep track of offenders.
The law however seems to have fallen foul of the mainly conservative clerics and religious leaders. They have said it is in conflict with both the Koran and the Pakistan constitution.

"This controversial law to protect women was promulgated to accomplish the West's agenda to destroy the family system in Pakistan," reads the joint declaration from the conference comprising the religious parties and groups. "This act ... is redundant and would add to the miseries of women."


Pakistan Today said the Council of Islamic Ideology, a Pakistani religious body that advises the government on the compatibility of laws with Islam has declared the Women's Protection Act as un-Islamic. On 14 March, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the chief of the Jamiat-i-Ulema Islam, the country's largest religious party, claimed that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had promised to address the reservations of the religious parties.

How Progressive Income Tax Works- Video "A Tale of Three Brothers"

This PragerU video tutorial from 2014 is a great reminder of how the Progressive Income Tax actually works.

This tale of three similar brothers with three different incomes (but one shared expense) helps explain the tax system under which we live. Adapted from an article by noted investor and economist, Kip Hagopian, and narrated by actress Carolyn Hennesy of "General Hospital" and "True Blood" fame, this animated story will change the way you think about how you pay your taxes.

Pakistani Hardliners Want Nine-Year-Olds To Marry

After attempting to institute a child marriage ban, the Pakistan Muslim League Party has caved to pressure from the religious extremists- who just so happen to be mainstream in that country. The proposed law is now off the table after the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) cried 'blasphemy' deeming it un-Islamic. And we know what happens to Muslim blasphemers.

Currently a girl can marry at age 16, and a boy 18. They wanted to raise the age to 18 for girls, and mete out harsher punishments for those who married underage young girls. That's now not going to happen.

CII's Mohammad Khan Sheerani said:

“Parliament cannot create legislation that is against the teachings of the Holy Quran or Sunnah.”

In fact, they want marriage laws to comply with Shariah, which means that girls as young as nine should be allowed to marry, if "the signs of puberty are visible”. In other words, they want to legalize pedophilia.


Way to go Pakistan.

Egypt To Ban Full-Face Veil

While the U.S. would be too PC to ever propose banning the niqab, Egypt is poised to do just that. The full-face veil will not be allowed in public places and government buildings.

MP Amna Nosseir, professor of comparative jurisprudence at Al-Azhar University, who has backed the ban, said that wearing the veil is not a requirement of Islam and in fact has non-Islamic origins. She has argued that it is a Jewish tradition which appeared in the Arabian Peninsula prior to Islam and that a variety of Quran passages contradict its use. Instead, she has advocated that the Quran calls for modest clothing and covered hair, but does not require facial covering.
Apparently, there is already a ban in the medical school and teaching hospitals affiliated with Cairo University, along with the academic staff on campus.

Good on them.

Caitlyn Jenner - Doesn't Like Hillary, Likes Cruz

I have yet to decide who I am voting for. I dislike all of them, but particularly Hillary Clinton. Apparently, Caitlyn Jenner feels the same way about la Hill, claiming:

"[Hillary] couldn't care less about women. She cares about herself," said Jenner, adding that it would be "unfortunate" if Clinton is the next president.
Caitlyn fka Bruce Jenner still considers herself a conservative, but for some odd reason likes Ted Cruz, who is as far right as you can get on social issues.

Caitlyn is more concerned about the economy, so keeps rooted in her Republican past, in spite of the fact that her tranny friends believe she should no longer be affiliated with the party.

"I think I can keep all of my views the same because I feel in my heart that that's the best way to go," she said, adding that Republicans and conservatives "are not these horrible people who are trying oppress people."
As for her affinity for Cruz:

“I think he’s very conservative and a great constitutionalist and a very articulate man. I haven’t endorsed him or anything like that. But I also think, he’s an evangelical Christian, and probably one of the worst ones when it comes to trans issues," she said.
Go figure.

Syrian Boy Beheaded For Missing Friday Prayers

The Islamic State (ISIS)- the barbarians of Islam- beheaded a teen in Aleppo province for missing Friday prayers. It appears that missing prayers is now considered apostasy, and therefore subject to execution.

The 16-year-old victim was arrested in the ISIS-held city of Jarablus north of Aleppo for missing Friday prayers at the mosque.

“The teenage boy, who faced charges of apostasy, was beheaded in front of a huge crowd in central Jarablus on Saturday,” local media activist Nasser Taljbini told ARA News.

The victim was accused by the Sharia Court of violating the Islamic law, and ordered his execution in public on charges of apostasy, the source reported.

“Before carrying out the execution, a Sharia official read a statement issued by the ISIS Sharia Court, vowing everyone who misses prayers at the mosque to face a similar punishment,” an eyewitness told ARA News, speaking on condition of anonymity.

We Can't Ban Everything That Offends You- Julie Bindel Video

Julie Bindel, a British lesbian feminist political commentator, talks about how we must NOT ban everything that offends, including banning Donald Trump visiting England.

"Banning people from publicly stating their views does not make those views disappear." 

 What banning does do is:

"blind us to the existence of the attitude that he articulates."

"Let us hear the argument put forward by those with whom we disagree, so that we can expand our knowledge and show rational resistance. This problem is getting worse and worse. we're in danger of making censorship the standard response to any view which offends. Unless someone is breaking the law by inciting with their words, I believe it is a crime not to hear them."

Well said Julie!

She also happens to not support gay-marriage.

Brit Hijabi Suing Kit Kat Makers For Waferless Candy Bar

Some Brit Hijabi is suing the makers of Kit Kat because she bought a package that did not include the wafers. She wants a lifetime supply for her pain and suffering, or as she put it:

"The loss I have suffered is of monetary and emotional significance.."

The Muslim 20-year-old law student, Saima Ahmad, sent a letter to Nestle company demanding the following:

The truth of the matter is; manufacturers owe a duty of care to consumers.
‘The specific duty you owe in consistency in your manufacturing process. The failure to take due care in the manufacturing process resulted in a product being defective.
‘As a result I feel as though I have been misled to part with my money and purchase a product that is clearly different from what has been marketed by Nestle.
‘The loss I have suffered is of monetary and emotional significance.
‘I would like a full refund of the defective pack of KitKat I purchased. I have also lost my faith in Nestle.
‘Clearly, if I wanted to purchase a confectionery item that is purely chocolate, I would have purchased a bar of Galaxy.
‘I would therefore like to request a life-long supply of KitKat so that I can act as a means of quality control – it appears you need me more than I need you
Saima is using an old 1930s law to back up her demands.

This has got to be a joke, but one never knows. There are a plethora of frivolous law suits that wind up in courts.

Latvia Trying To Ban The Burqa In Response To Influx Of Refugees

We haven't heard much about burqa bans- at least not for quite some years- but Latvia is hoping to join France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, The Netherlands, Russia, Syria, Chad, Cameroon, Senegal in banning the full face veil in public.  This article on Bustle explains the degree to which they are banned in those countries.

If the government approves, that is, Latvia might finally be going through with it.

Latvia will introduce a ban on the traditional Islamic clothes that cover the face when in public, Latvian Justice Minister Dzintars Rasnacs said on Monday.

"Such a ban will be introduced. The respective draft decision has been already worked out. We chose out of two concepts," the minister told the local LNT television.

"The first is to ban wearing clothes covering face only in certain places, including the state or educational ones. The second is to ban wearing burqa in all public places. The second concept was finally approved," he said.
The ban is yet to be approved by the Latvian government, Rasnacs said. "This ban is needed not to ensure public order and security, but to protect Latvia’s cultural values, our common public and cultural space, and each individual," the politician said.
One of the main reasons is a result of the influx of Muslim refugees.

Estonia and Lithuania are also considering the ban, but not without controversy.  As expected.

Bill To Ban Child Marriage In Pakistan Shot Down As Anti-Islamic

As proof that Pakistan is living in the dark ages, a proposed bill to ban child marriage in that country was shot down after the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) called it anti-Islamic.

The ruling party politician who introduced the bill, Marvi Menon of the Pakistan Muslim League party, withdrew it after the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) dubbed the bill “blasphemous”.

The CII unanimously rejected the proposed Child Marriage Restraint (Amendment) Bill 2014 on "purely religious grounds", reports The Express Tribune.

CII Chairman Mohammad Khan Sheerani said the bill contradicted Islamic teachings.

The proposed legislation recommended giving out harsher punishments to those entering a marriage with a minor, as well as raising the minimum age of marriage for women to 18-years-old.
Legally girls can marry at 16 and men at 18, but the CII believes that's anti-Islamic. According to Islamic law, 9-year-old girls should be allowed to marry.

Of course Ms Menon withdrew the bill after the CII called it  "blasphemous."  She is well aware of what happens to people who try to civilize a society still attached to backward Islamic ideology- people get killed.

Info On The 10 Yemeni Released Guantanamo Detainees

Barack Obama is making good on his campaign promise to release Guantanamo detainees. It took a good long while, but he's finally doing it. After all, he only has a year left in office to do as much damage as he possibly can. What this means is we are essentially adding to the ever increasing pool of terrorists who want us dead or living under Shariah law.

Muhammad Abd Al Rahman Awn Al-Shamrani. The 40-year-old is being shipped back to Saudi Arabia. He's already promised to kill Americans if released. You can be sure he will.

According to Breitbart, three others were already released this year:
On January 6th, Al Qaeda-linked detainees Mahmud Umar Muhammad Bin Atef and Khalif Muhammad Salih Al-Dhuby were released from the Guantánamo Bay detention center. On January 8, Faez Ahmed Al-Kandari, another Al Qaeda-linked detainee who was suspected of working as a jihadi recruiter and expert propagandist, was released.

Now ten more Yemeni terrorists have been released. The ten will be sent to Oman. Sean Hannity has a breakdown and photoa on each individual. Click here.

Obama Commemorative Chia Heads For Sale

For a little levity, Barack Obama Chia heads are back on sale on Amazon. I saw an ad for it on TV  last night and had a good laugh.  I googled, and yep, you can get your commemorative head from $17.99 to $19.99 plus free shipping to boot.  You even get your choice of his 'determined pose' or his 'happy pose'. Unless you'd like both.  

They are also selling toilet paper:

Some of the customer reviews are kind of fun.

Paul gave it 4 stars: "Nice growth but it forced me to choose a new health plan that was $500 more than my current plan. Also when no one was watching it set the Mideast on fire."

Matt gave it 1 star: "Tried to use this but it redistributed all my chia seeds, would not recommend."

38% gave the chia head 5 stars, and 35% gave it 1 star.

Hillary Clinton's nutcracker is on sale as well, as is Mitt Romney's chia head.

You might remember back in 2012, right before the elections, I wrote about the battle of the Obama/Romney Chia heads, and that Obama was outselling Romney, which some believed was an indication as to who would win the White House.  Unfortunately, they were right.

Who Should I Vote For In The 2016 Presidential Primaries- Quiz

Once again we're faced with choosing who our next leader will be. Like 2012, we don't have a terribly great choice in either party. You've got the two front runners from a very small group of presidential wannabees in the Democratic party- Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. And a slew of Republican contenders topped by the petulant outsider Donald Trump followed by Ben Carson, who was giving Trump a run for his money until he recently slipped way down in the polls. Now it's anybody's guess who might garner enough popularity to compete with Trump for the trip to the White House.

It's always a challenge to figure out who you are most aligned with politically, so I enjoy the quizzes that pop up during election years.  The latest from I Side With has an in depth quiz that covers all the categories from Economy to Foreign Policy to Education and everything in between.

Those listed in this particular quiz, in no particular order. Other than three Democrats listed at the bottom, along with Indepedent Jim Webb, all the rest are Republicans.

Donald Trump
Ben Carson
Carly Fiorino
Marco Rubio
Mike Huckabee
Ted Cruz
Jeb Bush
Rick Santorum
Rand Paul
Chris Christie
Rick Kasich
Hillary Clinton
Bernie Sanders
Martin O'Malley
Jim Webb

Click here to take the quiz on Remember to click on "Other Stances" for more detailed responses, and to also click at the bottom of each category for 'more questions'.

I really like Ben Carson, but he has no chance of winning. And no offense to all the Trump lovers, but I was not in any way a fan- I thought he was a major joke (though I've been warming to him ever so slightly),  so was very surprised to see him at the top of my list on this quiz.

Am still not sure who I will vote for during the primaries.

Dolce & Gabbana Goes Islamic- Creates Luxury Hijab Line

You know Dolce & Gabanna, the Italian uber-expensive luxury clothing line- they've now created a luxury hijab and abaya collection. For all those wealthy Arabs who refuse to take in any of their co-religionist refugees from Syria and surrounding areas. According to Vogue:

The line will likely prove good news for D&G’s 2016 revenue as well. According to a report by Thomson Reuters, Muslim shoppers spent $266 billion on clothing and footwear in 2013 and are expected to spend $484 billion by 2019.

From CBC:

According to a piece published by Fortune in July, Muslim women spent $266 billion US globally on clothing and footwear in 2013 alone – a figure that is expected to almost double by 2019.

Another report cited by Forbes shows that in the Middle East specifically, sales of personal luxury goods hit $8.7 billion US in 2015, up from $6.8 billion US in 2014.

"Women from wealthy oil states have long expressed their flair for fashion with pricey handbags and shoes, visible when worn with an abaya and hijab," writes Clare O'Connor in the Forbes piece. "Many of these women are already consumers of designer apparel, often wearing brands including Dolce & Gabbana head-to-toe underneath their modest abayas, viewable in the privacy of their homes or among other women."
The outfits are actually quite chic, and the prices probably exorbitant.

But isn't the whole purpose of Muslim modesty NOT to stand out?

As for dolce & Gabbana, dhimmis or after the Arab big bucks?
