This is a 40 minute video report by a VICE News reporter embedded with the Islamic State for three weeks. Be aware there are a few (and brief) graphic images–headless corpses (6:27 to 6:39), a crucified man (27:52 – 28:06). Even more chilling is the footage showing the recruitment and indoctrination of children. We are living in a joy that I can’t describe. These words were spoken by an IS member who operates a “preaching van”. He was parked by the Euprhates River where several young boys were swimming. He smilingly asked a 7-yr old boy, What do you want to be, a jihadist or to execute a martyrdom [suicide] operation? The boy is his son. At a celebration for...

**Bumped up from TAM Wire. Posted by Isaac T** My immediate reaction was to compare the melting down of 5000 firearms to a book burning, but that’s not quite accurate. This is a Burnt Offering to the liberal gods. Via Dan Zimmerman: thetruthaboutguns.com — LA Melts Down 5000 Firarms to Build Roads The next time you’re stuck in traffic on an LA freeway, think for a moment about what’s underneath you. That concrete you’re not rolling on could be supported by the remnants of confiscated and turned-in boomsticks. “Nearly 5,000 handguns, rifles and other weapons were destroyed Wednesday as part of the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s 21st annual Gun Melt event, authorities said…Interim Los Angeles County Sheriff John Scott...

OK, I admit it: The return of the NYC squeegee men does not exactly rank up there with all the important (and horrific) events of the past few weeks. But for those of us who suffered through the disastrous years of Democrat Mayor David Dinkins – (Did I mention that he’s a Democrat?), the return of this very annoying and unwanted feature of life in the Big Apple is a big concern. Via NY Post: Squeegee men are back terrorizing NYC streets They were the ultimate symbol of the lawlessness and blight of the 1980s and early 1990s — and now they’re making a comeback. Squeegee men are menacing motorists across New York City, including spots near the Holland, Lincoln...

I report. You decide: Max Steinberg, from Los Angeles, visited Israel, several years ago. He soon returned, joined the IDF, and became a sharpshooter in the elite Golani Brigade. Max was one of the first casualties of the Israel-Hamas conflict. It was unclear whether his parents and two siblings would be able to catch a flight for his funeral, and so the call went out in Israel, on Facebook and Twitter, for people to attend the funeral of the “Lone Soldier.” His family did attend the funeral. So did 30,000 Israelis. John Kerry was in Israel that day, and he went to visit Max’s parents. So, what do you say to jet-lagged, grief-stricken parents who have just buried their 24...

**Bumped up from TAM Wire. Posted by dachiemama** Former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, who, with his son, Henry, was behind all of the racist attacks on state Senator Chris McDaniel, is now collaborating with Julian Castro. A popular, two-term governor, Barbour provided leadership to the state after Hurricane Katrina, but at the end of his second term, he left many people in Mississippi with a bad taste in their mouths after he pardoned a number of convicted felons, one of whom killed his wife on a public street shortly after being released. McDaniel lost to Barbour-backed Thad Cochran in the Republican primary after the Barbours enlisted the help of Democrats in a runoff for the Senate race on June 24...
