Iran Destroys 100K Satellite Dishes to Stop Citizens Watching “Morally Damaging” TVby Shifra on July 26, 2016
No word yet, though, on the “morally damaging” policies of executing gays and putting women in potato sacks. Via Jerusalem Post. As part of its widespread ban on illegal devices, Iran collected and destroyed 100,000 satellite dishes and receivers on Sunday, at a ceremony in Tehran… Reza Naghdi, the head of Iran’s Basij militia, holds that the devices are morally damaging. AFP quoted Naghdi as saying, “The truth is that most satellite channels… deviate the society’s morality and culture… What these televisions really achieve is increased divorce, addiction and insecurity in society.”…. ****************************************************
Pakistani Social Media Star Murdered by Her Brother in ‘Honor Killing’by Shifra on July 17, 2016
Honor killings are committed by Muslim male family members against female family members, who are held to have brought ‘dishonor’ upon the family. And murder somehow restores the family’s honor. And if you find this abhorrent, Liberals might accuse you of Islamophobia. Because…cultural diversity. Via NY Post. The brother of Qandeel Baloch, whose risqué social media posts both titillated and appalled conservative Pakistan, on Sunday admitted to strangling her in a crime that reignited debate about so-called “honor killings” in the South Asian nation. Muhammad Waseem said he gave a “tablet” to Baloch to subdue her and then strangled her in their family home over the weekend. “I have no regrets,” he told journalists in a press conference arranged by...

(Video) Trey Gowdy Slams Comey in Hearing on Hillary Email Scandalby Shifra on July 7, 2016
Looks like Hillary’s line “What difference does it make?” takes on a new meaning. Because no matter how much she lied, violated laws, and put our national security at risk… does it really make a difference? Hillary walks away, again, scot-free. HT Gateway Pundit. And Texas Rep. Will Hurd: HT Twitchy. Will Hurd's heroic smackdown In case you missed it#ComeyHearing pic.twitter.com/RrC8IAPZPC — Viktor Fiel (@PuyaFiel) July 7, 2016 And, in response to Comey’s comment that Hillary was “not sophisticated enough” to “understand classified markings” FBI director thinks Hillary may not be sophisticated enough to comprehend classified markings so let's give her keys to our nuclear arsenal. — Razor (@hale_razor) July 7, 2016 Hi #Comey: If someone embezzles $$ can they...
Federal Healthcare System is Failing Native Americansby Shifra on July 3, 2016
But Donald Trump calling Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” is the real problem? Via WSJ. Needless patient suffering, fatal delays in medical treatment and retaliation against whistleblowers. These are among the well-publicized failures investigators found at hospitals run by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Yet they are also the shameful hallmarks of another federal health-care system: the Indian Health Service. Part of the Department of Health and Human Services, the Indian Health Service is required by treaty to deliver health care to Native Americans around the country, with more than two million depending on this federal agency. Unfortunately, it appears to be failing. Tribal members have told the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs about alarming conditions at hospitals run by the IHS....
Leftist Icon Angela Davis: From FBI’s Most-Wanted List to Feminist Awardby Shifra on June 15, 2016
Gloria Steinem, Angela Davis and Elizabeth Sackler If you want to understand the Left’s cravenness, look no further than Angela Davis. In 1970, she was put on the FBI’s “Ten Most-Wanted” List for accessory to murder for purchasing the guns smuggled into a courtroom that killed a judge (who had his head blown off), two defendants, and paralyzed a hostage. She was exonerated, claiming she was being “persecuted” for being a Communist and for being black. Now, she is a Distinguished Professor Emerita at UCLA. And, on June 2, she was honored at the Brooklyn Museum, receiving the 2016 Sackler Award. One of the highlights of the evening: Gloria Steinem yukking it up about President Reagan being dead. Stay classy,...
The Victims of the Orlando Islamist Terror Attackby Tammy on June 13, 2016
49 innocents were murdered. That number may increase with over 50 hospitalized. We have identified them, but police are releasing names only after family has been notified. Here’s who we know so far. May they all rest in peace. In their names, let us focus on the truth and act on the reality of what they faced at that club. The attempts to politically obscure the hell they went through is itself obscene. Wemake sure their deaths are not in vain. A GoFundMe page has been started for the victims and families. Via ABC 7 New York. Edward Sotomayor Jr., 34 years old Stanley Almodovar III, 23 years old Juan Ramon Guerrero, 22 years old Kimberly Morris, 37 years old...
Feds Not Seeking Death Penalty For Benghazi Attack Mastermindby Tammy on May 11, 2016
If there was ever a reason for the death penalty, it’s this kind of case: terrorist mass murder, including the murder of an ambassador. But no. Apparently this horrific crime doesn’t warrant the death penalty. But maybe that’s the Obama gang’s point, because if this scumbag doesn’t get the death penalty, why should anyone else? Don’t forget– Obama finally decided he couldn’t put it off any longer we grabbed this one guy two years after the attack, when many more were obviously involved. Obama also managed to make sure this freak gets constitutional protections. Because, you know, be a terrorist and you’ll win the lottery of getting all the benefits of American citizenry! This, of course, also sends a message...
Doctor Who Helped CIA Track bin Laden Still Languishes in Pakistan Jailby Tammy on May 2, 2016
It took Navy Seals to get bin Laden. It would take Obama interrupting his golf games and giving a damn to get Dr. Afridi out of the pit of Pakistan, but he doesn’t, so the doctor remains a hostage. This is outrageous and remains a perfect example of how Obama’s indifference, hostility and incometence contribute to our continued moral failure around the world. Via Telegraph. The doctor who helped the CIA track down Osama bin Laden has been abandoned in his Pakistan prison cell by America, his supporters claimed on the fifth anniversary of the al-Qaeda leader’s killing. Shakil Afridi was hailed as a hero by US officials after a fake vaccination campaign he ran allowed the CIA to pinpoint...
Parents Of Missing Madeleine McCann Sued By Inept Police Chief For Libel Damagesby Pat_S on April 20, 2016
Last year the former police chief who led the investigation into the 2007 disappearance of Madeleine McCann was ordered to pay damages to Kate and Gerry McCann, the child’s parents, for making allegations that their missing child was in fact murdered by her parents. That judgment has now been reversed by an appeals court. In his book, The Truth of the Lie, and based on no evidence, Goncalo Amaral accused Gerry and Kate McCann of killing their daughter and stuffing her in a freezer. The lower court issued an injunction against further sales of the book. The appeals court says he has a right to his opinion. Now the former police chief who was in charge of the inept investigation...
Noooo! UK Science Minister Torpedoes ‘Boaty McBoatface’ As Ship Nameby Tammy on April 19, 2016
Well, I guess they can’t figure out how to lighten up. This is exactly the sort of attitude that cost them the colonies here in North America. Just saying. And there goes all sorts of marketing and gear possibilties. I would have bought a mug and a t-shirt for myself and as gifts. Sigh. She’ll always be “Boaty” to me… Via NPR. Appearing to drown all hope that the U.K.’s new $300 million research vessel will be named “Boaty McBoatface,” Science Minister Jo Johnson says the ship needs a more “suitable” name. Although Boaty McBoatface decisively won a public poll that Britain’s Natural Environment Research Council launched last month to whip up enthusiasm about science, Johnson told BBC Radio 5...
[Video] Grandson of Manson Murder Victims Speaks Out On Possible Van Houten Paroleby Shifra on April 17, 2016
The Parole Board seems to have a case of misplaced empathy, feeling sorry for one of the perpetrators of this heinous crime. But feeling sorry for the family of the victims? Not so much. Via CBS News: A California parole panel made the surprising move Thursday to recommend parole for Leslie Van Houten, a former Manson family member and convicted killer. Van Houten took part in the 1969 murder of Leno LaBianca, a Los Feliz grocer, and his wife Rosemary. Van Houten stabbed Rosemary 14 times. The La Biancas were chosen by the Manson family at random…. “So yesterday, I get off of the phone from the parole hearing, and the first thing I do is lay down on my...
Saudi Arabia Warns of Economic Fallout if Congress Passes 9/11 Billby Tammy on April 16, 2016
What happens when you’re in debt to the devil. Isn’t this blackmail? Sure seems like it. And, of course, Obama is doing their bidding with Congress. Via NYT. Saudi Arabia has told the Obama administration and members of Congress that it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets held by the kingdom if Congress passes a bill that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The Obama administration has lobbied Congress to block the bill’s passage, according to administration officials and congressional aides from both parties, and the Saudi threats have been the subject of intense discussions in recent weeks between...
Scumbag “Affluenza” Teen Ethan Couch *May* Be Jailed For 2 Yearsby Tammy on April 13, 2016
Scumbag Ethan Couch not looking so smug these days. I emphasize “may” in the headline because the judge says he could change his mind. Really, is no one capable of exercising judgement and penalty? Is the concept of repercussions that dead? Via CBS. Texas teenager who used an “affluenza” defense in a fatal drunken-driving wreck was ordered Wednesday to serve 720 days in a county jail. Ethan Couch appeared in adult court for the first time Monday, when a judge announced he is ordering the 19-year-old to serve four 180 day terms consecutively, one term for each of the four people who died in a 2013 drunken driving wreck involving the teen. Judge Wayne Salvant gave Couch’s attorneys two weeks...
Family of Murdered Muslim Who Posted Easter Greetings Fear Retribution From Radical Islamistsby Shifra on March 28, 2016
Outrageous. This family has suffered enough. Via Telegraph: The family of a popular Muslim shopkeeper who was murdered after posting an online Easter message to “my beloved Christian nation” has disclosed they fear for their lives following the brutal attack. Asad Shah’s wife and siblings said they had been left “heartbroken” by the killing and they had been overwhelmed by the messages of support they had received from the local community in the Shawlands area of Glasgow. But they only spoke on the condition their names were not published for fear of retribution and disclosed they have been advised by the police to be careful what they say in order to protect their security. The family, originally from Pakistan, are...
