OHIO: Muslims across the US celebrated Eid on the same day to everyone’s joy and relief. Mosques overflowed with happy worshippers who stood as one ummah in prayer and thanksgiving, enjoying the mild weather, treats and spiritually motivating sermons of the day. US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle also sent their warmest greetings to Muslims celebrating Eid Al-Fitr around the world, calling it "part of a great tapestry of America´s many traditions."

The ONLY thing the mooslims have to do with American traditions is that they were responsible for the founding of the US Navy.

I´m in my 60s. Until about 10 years ago, I had never met a Muslim and had only heard of Eid in an academic sense. Americans had long celebrated Jewish and Christian holidays, but Eid? No, not at all.

Part pf the tapestry??? Maybe the tangled one in Obama´s mind. Most Americans have probably still never heard of Eid and the rest (including moi) don´t care. I don´t respect the "holy" days of murderers and terrorists. For the muslims who claim they are not either one of these, WHERE ARE YOU?

Say what?...Do you think His Imperial Majesty and his Empress Consort happened to catch the television coverages of the poor souls diving from the top floors of the burning Twin Towers on September 11, 2001?

I´m very close to 70 years old and the first I ever head of muzzies was when I read about a jihad some time in the 90´s mab and didn´t know what that was. Then came 9/11/01 and they were mentioned Then the next thing was when some airport was going to build thingies to wash their dirty feet in and muzzies wouldn´t let dogs or liquor in their taxis. Remind me again of all the ties they have to AMERICAN life. [spit]

Found THIS little nugget with some simple research: it started with the PIAPS...you could knock me over with a feather... /s

President Obama is not the first to welcome Muslims into the White House for Ramadan celebrations. In fact, it has been an annual tradition since 1996, when then-First Lady Hillary Clinton hosted a dinner during Eid al-Fitr, the three-day festival marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

Hillary Clinton addressed her guests at the 1996 celebration, saying it was an “historic and overdue occasion.” She continued:

"It is only fitting. Just as children and families of other faiths have come here to celebrate some of their holy days, so you too are all here to mark this important Islamic tradition."

I had a feeling we´d find cankle prints on this...

Islam is only part of American tradition on 9/11.
It reminds us of the 1993 WTC bombings that Clinton treated as a law enforcement issue instead of terrorism setting up 9/11.
Islam and Shatiah law are not compatible with the American Constitution and Rule of law as. Jude´s Christian nation.
Islam is the political arm for terrorists and should be treated as modern day Nazis- with whom the Muslim Brotherhood partnered since the 20´s.

They do indeed have a great tradition here in the US. The tradition is not very old but it´s certainly in evidence. Murder, rape and violence are what I associate with their ´great tradition.´

#22! I have, in the past, used that line frequently. Thanks for reviving it!
Like others here, I´d never heard of Ramaden or Eid Al-Fitr until after 9-11-2001.
Have y´all noticed that "Eid" is "Die" spelled backwards? OK, that´s my dose of paranoia for the day.

Kim Jong-un gets mobbed
by ladies. Cracks a smile

Kim Jong-un has taken on his role as North Korea’s Supreme Leader with gusto — even, if reports are to be believed, culling some members of his own family. He expects his people to follow his lead — from haircuts through to behaviour and rarely shows his relaxed side. That is until he gets mobbed. By females. Specifically, hot Korean ladies. Just moments earlier he showed his formal, restrained side by posing alongside members of the Korean People’s Army. Then the admirers came running. We’ve never seen Kimmy’s smile so wide. He bathed in the female attention.

The gap between Gakirah Barnes’s front teeth when she smiled, whether she was celebrating on the basketball court or messing around with friends, made her look even younger than the 17 years she spent in south Chicago before being shot to death last weekend.(snip)The bitter feud, in a city derided as “Chiraq”, has been linked to the deadly shootings of 18-year-old rapper Joseph "Lil JoJo" Coleman, a Lil Jay ally, in 2012; Mario “Blood Money” Hess, Keef’s 30-year-old cousin, who was murdered two days before Gakirah, after securing a record deal; and Odee Perry, 20, who was slain in 2011

WASHINGTON — According to a new study, commissioned by the federal government, says that biofuels made from the leftovers of harvested corn plants are actually worse than gasoline -- when it comes to global warming in the short term. The research published in the journal Nature Climate Change challenges the Obama administration´s conclusions that biofuels are a much cleaner oil alternative and will help fight climate change. The study is being criticized by the biofuels industry and Obama administration as flawed. Corn residue is one of the most promising ways to make cellulosic biofuels. Biofuels have struggled to reach the volumes

A 15-year-old boy was shot in the foot Saturday after he cut the line of customers waiting to buy hot new Nike "Yeezy" and Air Jordan sneakers at a Foot Locker store in Brooklyn.

CARSON CITY, Nev.-- Secretary of State Ross Miller says a woman has been arrested on two felony charges for allegedly using a false identity to register to vote and casting ballots in Nevada elections. Miller late Friday announced the arrest of Ortencia Segura in California. A complaint filed by the attorney general´s office says Segura registered to vote in Washoe County in August 2008 and provided identification with the name of Marisela Reyna. Authorities confirmed she voted in the 2008 and 2010 elections. Authorities say information from the Justice Department show Segura was arrested in 2012 and deported for filing

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
