The Burn ISIS Flag Challenge: Outraged Muslims flood web with their version of the Ice Bucket Challenge in protest against Islamic State barbarism

UK Daily Mail  "Furious Muslims are flooding the internet with their own version of the Ice Bucket Challenge in protest against the Islamic State - by burning the terror group's flag.

"Dozens of pictures and videos are trending on Twitter and YouTube showing campaigners from America to Lebanon setting fire to the black jihadist standard.

"The groundswell of disgust comes after the sickening beheadings of two U.S. journalists which were even denounced by hate cleric Abu Qatada."

The victim is the soldier on the right and below
Cpl. Nathan Cirillo has been identified as the Canadian Forces reservist killed in Ottawa.

Suspect in Canadian Parliament ISIS Attack is Another Convert to Islam   "Just before 10 o’clock this morning, Zehef-Bibeau opened fire in Ottawa, Canada, and murdered a Canadian soldier. The soldier has been identified as Nathan Cirillo.

"One witness, construction worker Scott Walsh, told Reuters that he heard a gunshot, and then saw a man dressed in black with a scarf over his face running towards parliament with a gun.

A Canadian parliament official described the gunman to BBC as looking “Arabian” with “long hair and a small beard.' ”


... "And apparently a man identifying himself as a supporter of the Islamic State responded to a Tweet from France’s “France 24″ News station with the following message:

“Soldiers of #Islamic_state who are everywhere around the globe declared war on the coalition countries”

Weazel Zippers guessed what he shouted rhymed with “Allah Snackbar.' ”

Ann Coulter "Most devastating for New Hampshire families, Shaheen told aggressive lies in order to pass Obamacare. She repeatedly promised New Hampshire voters that Obamacare would:

-- "let people keep their doctor and their insurance plan if they like it" (deliberate lie);
-- "expand coverage options for people who need it" (laughable lie);
-- "stabilize costs for families, businesses and our government" (cruel lie)
-- "by injecting competition in the insurance market." (breathtaking lie!)

"And, she said, "We can do this without increasing our federal deficit." (You've got to be kidding me.)
 "You're not going to get a do-over on this election after your health insurance is canceled, New Hampshire. You can't change your mind after your kid is paralyzed by some exotic disease brought by the deluge of illegal immigrants. The time to vote for freedom -- for Scott Brown -- is now. "

Evil stalks the streets of Ferguson, Missouri

Is ACORN behind violent unrest in Ferguson? ..."What's going on in Ferguson is mobocracy at its ugliest. 

"Activists are blackmailing the grand jury that is now hearing evidence against police officer Darren Wilson, who shot Brown in August reportedly in self-defense.  If the grand jurors refuse to indict Wilson, radical activists are promising even more mayhem.

"The message is unmistakable: indict the cop, and there will be peace.  Don't, and Ferguson will burn." ...

Michael Brown's Official Autopsy Reportedly Seems To Support The Story Of The Cop Who Shot Him  "The police officer, Darren Wilson, reportedly told investigators that there was an altercation in his police vehicle before he shot Brown. Wilson said Brown was reaching for Wilson's gun.

"Brown's wounds seem to support that — according to the autopsy, he was shot in the hand at a very close range. A forensic pathologist told the Post-Dispatch that "if he has his hand near the gun when it goes off, he’s going for the officer’s gun."

"The report also seems to suggest that Brown was facing Wilson when Wilson fired the fatal shots, not running away as some witnesses have said."

Immigration: Obama's pen and phone takes charge

Via Drudge:
Feds Getting Ready for Executive Action on Immigration    "León Rodríguez, the new head of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), recalled how he was put on the “wait list” and eventually denied admission to Georgetown Law School, where he spoke Tuesday.
"Now Rodríguez is heading Citizenship and Immigration Services, a part of the Department of Homeland Security."

President Obama lets slip his scheme for a permanent majority   "The White House intended to remain silent about its plans for immigration. Revealing a scheme to open the floodgates of amnesty would be disastrous on the eve of the critical midterm elections. But this is the gang that can’t shoot straight."

It’s Not You, Islam, It’s Us

Here's the latest news from the 8th century  "A man and a woman have been stoned to death for adultery in separate executions in jihadist-controlled areas of Syria, a monitoring group reported on Tuesday.
"Syrian society better get used to this, along with other 8th century niceties like crucifixion, cutting off limbs, deliberate blinding - all the enlightened punishments that any 8th century peasant would recognize.

"In other news, a camel set the land speed record, galloping more than 20 MPH in the desert outside of Raffqa..."

Andrew Klavan (From Feb. 2012)    "What else do you expect? Pre-medieval people who believe they are called by God to reduce the rest of the world to their own state of misery are going to kill people when you insult them. That’s how they roll.

"The problem isn’t them. It’s us."...

... "My point is this. We can’t stop people in Islamic nations from being what they are — can’t stop them from oppressing women, murdering gays, banning other religions and tormenting non-believers. But it’s not too much to ask that we stand up for our own values contra theirs — especially in our own, once Christian, countries. We can stop penalizing and insulting those who speak the simple truth about Islamic values, good or bad; we can de-bench judges who don’t stand up for our freedoms; we can stop sentimentalizing Islamic rights to the point of sanctioning intolerance, especially while our own government is attempting to stomp on the rights of Catholics and ignoring the rise in hate crimes against Jews; we can stop confusing Islam with a race — it’s a religion, a metaphysical philosophy of life, and has to be open to question, debate, ridicule and attack like every other." ...

Islamic Jihad Update

God's Hammer
Now THIS is what you call a war on women. Silly liberals

... "In Denmark, author Lars Hedegaard just got fined $1,000 (5,000 Danish kroner) for opining, in an interview at his own home, that the nation of Islam seems to encourage rape. Of course, the Danes don't allow the truth as an affirmative defense to hate speech. But, Hedegaard got off better than Protestant pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, an Iranian pastor, who had the audacity to convert from Islam (a religion of intolerance) to Christianity (a religion of peace and love). In Iran, that carries the death penalty for Pastor Nadarkhani ala comedian/ventriloquist Jeff Dunham's puppet Achmed the Dead Terrorist "Silence! I will kill you". As award winning author Andrew Klavan notes at his blog [click here], in his article It's Not You, Islam, It's Us, "What else do you expect? Pre-medieval people who believe they are called by God to reduce the rest of the world to their own state of misery are going to kill people when you insult them. That’s how they roll.

Two sunken ships from World War II -- a German U-boat and an American merchant vessel -- have been found deep in the ocean off the coast of North Carolina, officials said Tuesday.
The ships clashed in the Battle of the Atlantic in 1942 and were lost for more than seven decades in an area known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic.
The discovery of the German U-boat 576 (pictured below) and the freighter Bluefields offers "a rare window into a historic military battle and the underwater battlefield landscape of WWII," NOAA said.
The ships were found 240 yards apart.

The Maryland Obama Walk-out

Political Cartoons by Michael Ramirez

Crowd walks out as Obama addresses campaign rally in deep blue Maryland  "Right after the NYT published an article about how critical the black vote is to Democrats' chances in the mid-terms, Obama made an appearance in Upper Marlboro, Md, a predominantly Black area in support of a candidate for lieutenant governor. As far as I know this is the first campaign appearance anyone invited him to. Reuters reports that when Obama began speaking, members of the audience headed for the exits. "
Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel
Note that those walking out on Obama were Democrats   ... "Far be it from me to kick a man when he is down, but note that those who walked out on Obama were all–presumably–Democrats. They didn’t leave because they disagreed with the president, but rather because they were bored by him. Which highlights a point I have made before: contrary to assurances the Democratic Party press has been giving us for eight or ten years now, Barack Obama is a mediocre public speaker, at best."

Dana Milbank: Obama, the pariah president
... "This had the sound of a peroration, which started the race for the shuttle buses. But, oblivious to the thinning crowd, Obama kept going, about the need to fight cynicism and to advance the American dream.

"So it goes for President Pariah in 2014: Even among the faithful, Obama’s magic can’t match the urge to get a jump on traffic."

Renaming the 'Holidays'

American Thinker  ...The one thing that will assuredly be absent will be any hint of religion, which is now the PC equivalent of obscenity and unmentionable in polite society. The irony is that the very word “holiday” derives from “holy days”, which were instituted by the Church, with the dual motive of giving reverence to God and giving people days off from work. The two are related in that a belief in a just and compassionate god is the only logical basis for a belief in human rights.
"As our Founders well understood, religion is the mortar that has held our diverse society together. Now that mortar is crumbling and our society is collapsing. Soon, the question of names for holidays may be moot; we shall have no holidays except those imposed on us by our conquerors."

Top Ten Things That Are Racist Because They Require Proper ID


... "See, the idea is that a law that applies to everyone is racist because minorities are somehow incapable of getting an ID and can’t be expected to prove who they are. Asking minorities for proof of identification disenfranchises them and denies them their rights according to the left.
This episode has got me thinking that there are many other things in our society that require an ID that are equally racist and should be stamped out if we are ever to truly become a post-racial country. Here’s my top ten list of things that are racist because they require an ID:" ...
"If liberals think voter ID laws are so racist they should advocate the wholesale elimination of identification from our society. People are basically honest, right? If voter fraud is a myth, as they claim, then so must be underage drinking, bad guys with guns, and terrorism. Lets see the democrats try to sell the honor system as means to a safer and more racially harmonious America."
