Threats from self-proclaimed ´Islamist
jihadist´prompt Fort Collins police
to caution religious organizations

Coloradoan [Ft Collins CO], by Madeline Novey

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 7/29/2013 8:36:33

Fort Collins police have asked local religious organizations to keep an eye out for suspicious behavior after a self-proclaimed “Islamist jihadist” threatened Mormons and Catholics “would be destroyed” in the next two weeks, a memo sent by authorities said. (Snip) Rev. Steven Voss said the Archdiocese of Denver shared with him on Friday the Fort Collins Police Services memo and reading its words of caution made his “blood run cold.” But between Sunday Masses at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 300 W. Mountain Ave., Voss said he’s “pretty confident” he and his parishioners won’t have an interaction

Yesterday, I was online looking for the address of a Catholic church in Manhattan. On their website it says:

The police car that has been parked in front of the church on weekends is not there in response to any threats received. Large houses of worship are being provided this visible sign of protection by local precincts.

The US government may not be at war with Islam, but they sure are at war with us, aren´t they?

International Business Times, by Palash Ghosh    Original Article

Trader Joe’s, the privately held retail grocery chain, has cancelled plans to open a store in a poor neighborhood in the northeastern section of Portland, Ore., following “negative reactions” from the local community. (Snip) In late January, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) also entered the fray. In a blistering op-ed published in the liberal Huffington Post, Dedrick Asante Muhammad, the NAACP’s senior director of economic programs, condemned the Trader Joe’s project as a new kind of “gentrification.” “Economic inequality has reached an epic height in our nation, shutting the doors of opportunity for millions of

Clay Aiken formally declared his bid for Congress, setting aside the singing career he launched on TV´s American Idol to run as a Democrat for a North Carolina seat now held by a Republican. In a video posted Wednesday on You Tube, Aiken alluded to the "golden ticket" that got punched when he was the 2003 runner-up on the reality singing show. He stressed his upbringing by a single mom and his days as a special education teacher in explaining that he wants to serve in Congress for people who don´t have a voice. "I´m not a politician.

ADP´s January National Employment Report is out. The payroll-processing firm estimates 175,000 workers were hired by private-sector firms in January. Market economists were looking for a 185,000 estimate. The December estimate from ADP´s previous report was revised down to 227,000 from 238,000. Below is a summary of the data from the release: Goods-producing employment rose by 16,000 jobs in January, down from a downwardly-revised figure of 50,000 in December. Nearly all of the growth came from the construction industry which added 25,000 jobs over the month; this followed increases of 30,000 and 32,000 in the prior two months. Manufacturing lost

RadioShack (RSH) is reportedly planning to close roughly 500 stores in the coming months, as the struggling electronics retailer moves forward with a restructuring effort. According to The Wall Street Journal, it remains unclear which stores RadioShack will shutter. The company currently operates around 4,500 locations. RadioShack declined to comment on the report. The Fort Worth, Texas-based retailer is trying to turn the business around by revamping its image. RadioShack won praise for a Super Bowl ad that featured Hulk Hogan and other 1980s personalities ripping apart a drab store. The following morning, its stock rallied more than

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Trader Joe´s grocery-store chain has dropped a plan to open a new store in the heart of the city´s historically African-American neighborhood after activists said the development would price black residents out of the area. (Snip) It sent the city a letter saying it would "remain opposed to any development in N/NE Portland that does not primarily benefit the Black community." It said the grocery-store development would "increase the desirability of the neighborhood," for "non-oppressed populations." Mayor Charlie Hales and the urban renewal agency´s executive director, Patrick Quinton, signed a letter in January that described what

Super Bowl ads tread lightly so

NEW YORK — What Super Bowl ads will people discuss over the water cooler a day after the big game? There were no crude jokes. Sexual innuendo was kept to a minimum. And uncomfortable scenes were missing. In short, there wasn´t much shock value. Sure, RadioShack poked fun at its image by starring 80s icons like Teen Wolf in its ad. And Coca-Cola struck an emotional chord by showcasing people of different diversities in its spot. As did Chrysler, with its "Made in America" message. But with a 30-second Super Bowl commercial fetching $4 million and more than 108 million

Investigators found roughly 50 bags of heroin and used syringes in Philip Seymour Hoffman´s West Village apartment, police told to ABC News. This information comes one day after the Oscar-winning actor was found inside his New York apartment. Hoffman was 46 years old. Police sources say Hoffman was found unconscious at around 11:15 a.m. Sunday on the bathroom floor of his apartment by friend and screenwriter David Bar Katz, who called 911. Hoffman was pronounced dead at the scene. He was supposed to pick up his three children Sunday, but never showed. He was last seen at 8 p.m. Saturday

Automakers reported on Monday sharp declines in United States sales in January as a harsh freeze and winter storms thwarted purchases across much of the country. General Motors, the country’s largest carmaker, said sales fell 12 percent last month to 171,486 vehicles, while its crosstown rival, Ford Motor, reported a 7 percent decline, selling 154,644 vehicles. The Chrysler Group, the smallest of Detroit’s automakers, fared better, reporting growth of 8 percent to 127,183 vehicles for its best January sales performance in six years. It was the 46th month of consecutive sales gains for the automaker, whose acquisition by Fiat was

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes in the second half of Super Bowl XLVIII. The young quarterback overcame many obstacles to become a champion over the Denver Broncos. The third-round draft pick was called too short -- at 5´11´´-- to be a quarterback and too young at just 25 years old. Wilson, asked how he´s dealt with the adversity, said on "CBS This Morning" it´s through his faith. "God´s given me so much talent and my height doesn´t define my skill set," Wilson said.

ATLANTA - Atlanta´s mayor is defending his use of emergency lanes at the height of Tuesday´s icy traffic jam so he could do an interview at The Weather Channel´s studios. Mayor Kasim Reed´s spokesman Carlos Campos said Saturday that he, Reed and police officers normally assigned to the mayor traveled in two cars equipped with blue lights to reach the station´s suburban Atlanta headquarters. (Snip) The mayor´s use of emergency lanes was first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The Pro-Gun Ad Too

A spat between gun-maker Daniel Defense and the National Football League is over this pro-gun ad you won’t see during this year’s Super Bowl. It features a Marine Corps veteran going through his daily life with his family and child. “It’s been a long road getting here, and a lot has changed since I got back,” he says. “I am responsible for their protection, and no one has the right to tell me how to defend them.” “So I’ve chosen the most effective tool for the job.” As the foreboding music plays in the background, you could cut the tension

Book thieves checked out but never returned 70,144 books from Brooklyn Public Library’s 60 cash-strapped branches in 2012, records show. GED prep guides, nursing and other professional exam cliff notes were high on the list of frequently filched books — but so too were graphic novels, library officials said. “Those are always going missing,” a librarian at the Brooklyn Heights branch told the Daily News Thursday. (Snip) Despite the thefts, library officials have kept the shelves full — in 2012, the system bought 419,790 new print books and 18,323 new e-books. But the overall catalogue continues to shrink.

The Congressional Budget Office estimated on Tuesday that the Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of full-time workers by 2.5 million over the next decade. That is mostly a good thing, a liberating result of the law. Of course, Republicans immediately tried to brand the findings as “devastating” and stark evidence of President Obama’s health care reform as a failure and a job killer. It is no such thing. (SNIP) The new law will free people, young and old, to pursue careers or retirement without having to worry about health coverage.

The Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, became law almost four years ago. It became operational last Oct. 1. Yesterday, Feb. 4, 2014, the ACA may well have been dealt its death blow. The Congressional Budget Office released a major study of the government’s budget and its effect on the overall economy over the next 10 years. In dull bureaucratic language, it delivers a devastating analysis of the inefficiencies, ineffectualities and problematic social costs of ObamaCare. The one-two punch: Virtually as many Americans will lack health coverage in 10 years as before the law was passed — but 2 million fewer

Washington - Americans overwhelmingly favor a bill that would give most undocumented immigrants a pathway towards citizenship, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that a majority of the public says that the government´s main focus should be legalizing the status of the undocumented rather than border security. The poll was released Thursday, the same day that House Speaker John Boehner signaled any action on immigration is unlikely this year because House Republicans don't trust President Barack Obama on the issue. According to the poll, 54% say the top priority for the

House committees are still digging into the IRS political targeting scandal, and based on a hearing Wednesday there´s more to learn. The day produced more evidence blowing apart President Obama´s claims that there was "not even a smidgen of corruption" or political motivation in the IRS handling of groups applying for tax-exempt status. Mr. Obama wants Americans to believe that the targeting resulted from the confusing tax law governing nonprofits, which he says was "difficult" to interpret and resulted in mere "bureaucratic" mistakes. This is also the Administration´s justification for issuing new regulations governing

Seven seconds of total silence. The nation´s top intelligence officials have answered the question countless times over the past year and a half, but they seemed stumped during a House hearing Tuesday when a Florida congressman asked them one more time: "Can anybody at the table tell us when somebody will be held responsible for the murders in Benghazi?"

AUSTIN, Texas — The Wild West tradition of openly carrying your six-shooter on the street has long been banned in Texas under state law. But the next governor could change that. Rising Democratic star and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has joined her top Republican rival in supporting a proposed "open carry" law. It would allow people with concealed handgun licenses to wear a pistol on their hip, in full view, while in public. Davis has said she supports expanding gun rights in Texas. In a statement to The Associated Press, she said that includes open-carry — a position that puts her at

The White House and congressional Democrats tried to limit the fallout Wednesday from the politically damaging conclusion in a Congressional Budget Office report that the Obamacare entitlement creates a major incentive for some people not to work. While some critics focused on a finding by the CBO that Obamacare will result in 2.5 million fewer workers over a decade, conservatives said the bigger fundamental issue highlighted in the report is one familiar to the welfare state — that taxpayer-funded government subsidies provide disincentives for full-time work. “People used to be stuck in jobs because they needed the health insurance,” said

CVS Caremark is kicking the habit of selling tobacco products at its more than 7,600 drugstores nationwide. The nation’s second-largest drugstore chain says it will phase out cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco by Oct. 1 as it continues to focus more on health care. CVS Caremark Corp. and other major drugstore chains have been adding clinics to their stores for several years. Their pharmacists deliver flu shots and other immunizations, and their clinics also have been expanding the care they deliver. CVS CEO Larry Merlo says the company decided it can no longer sell cigarettes at places where it also
