Clothes retailer Topman pulls

New York Daily News, by David Harding

Original Article

"Fashion retailer Topman has withdrawn a clothing line that featured Nazi insignia. The embarrassed clothier apologized after the blunder was pointed out by an online shopper. The "grunge look" Horace jacket — which sold for around $300 — featured an emblem worn by SS troops. The ancient Norse odal rune, reports The Mirror, is similar to a swastika and was used to symbolize Hitler´s belief in a pure Aryan race. It was worn by ethnic Germans of the 7th SS Volunteer Mountain Division in Croatia, who fought alongside the German army. The Nazi faux pas was spotted by the friend

Hope the line of clothing was pulled before Jay Carney bought them for his family. Something he would wear proudly

I have no sympathy for companies that try to use Nazi symbols for shock value, but this is a Nordic rune. It was around for centuries before the Nazis decided to use it - and a single Nazi division in Croatia at that. In this case, I think it´s a bit of a stretch to call it a Nazi symbol.

Federal agents swarm Livingston, Ill.

Posted By: happywarrior- 7/11/2014 6:29:15 PM     Post Reply
LIVINGSTON, IL – Homeland security, the US Customs and Border Patrol and other police agencies swarmed Livingston, Illinois. They all parked in the field of a grade school. The peacefulness of the town of 850 was broken by all the excitement. The law officers would not comment about their operation, even to the school superintendent and they were using the school district’s land. The site became an immediate attraction for citizens who say the officers were hospitable, inviting the kids to check out the choppers up close. A spokesman in the U.S. Attorney`s Office said he cannot confirm or deny

Shoes with President Obama’s face and the campaign slogan “Yes we can” are apparently showing up on the feet of illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. The conservative writer and filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch posted the images on his Facebook page Wednesday. Mr. Lynch said that the pictures were sent to him by U.S. Border Patrol agents. “I’ve received two sets of photos from two contacts at the border,” Mr. Lynch said on his Facebook page. “I cannot validate the authenticity of the pictures.

Bernadette Lancelin is very upset that the unaccompanied minors flooding across the border aren’t being sent back home. Instead they are being put in detention centers around the country. Lancelin is out with the local news in Houston because a closed middle school that hasn’t been used in years is now on the list to become another detention center. And she, among others, is furious about it. "It’s not right. Now billions of dollars want to be borrowed from the White House to help feed and house them. What about the kids here?

BAGHDAD: The jihadists who overran Mosul last month have demolished ancient shrines and mosques in and around the historic northern Iraqi city, residents and social media posts said on Saturday. At least four shrines to Sunni Arab or sufi figures have been demolished, while six Shia mosques, or husseiniyahs, have also been destroyed, across militant-held parts of northern Nineveh province, of which Mosul is the capital. Pictures posted on the internet by the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group showed the Sunni and sufi shrines were demolished by bulldozers, while the Shia mosques and shrines were all destroyed by explosives.

Newark - A New Jersey man named Clinton Tucker is suing former employer Benjamin Moore, claiming discrimination regarding the paint company´s colors "clinton brown" and "tucker chocolate." Tucker, who identifies himself as an African-American man in the lawsuit filed in Essex County court in Newark, said he was hired in June 2011 in the digital marketing department but quickly found himself being discriminated against, according to a write-up of the filing on CourthouseNews.com.

In an attempt to fire back at House Speaker John Boehner concerning the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) went on MSNBC Tuesday morning and had an interesting view of the Taliban, disputing that they are terrorists. Earlier, Boehner held a news conference and was critical of the fact that Congress wasn´t fully briefed on the exchange. In blasting the Obama administration, Boehner said "we´re gonna pay" for the prisoner swap, and also said it violated U.S. policy to not negotiate with terrorists.

It was the crying and pleas for help that drew Dr. John Crew to Lori Madsen´s bedside at Seton Medical Center one day in January 2012. Madsen, then 51, was several days into a terrifying case of necrotizing fasciitis - also known as flesh-eating disease. Her left arm had swollen to four times its normal size, and she´d had surgery to scrape out dead tissue. The pain was unbearable. "My arm was dying on the inside. It was extremely horrifying," said Madsen, now 53. "It wasn´t until it was all over, and I was out of the hospital that Dr.

LOS ANGELES — The bodies of 28 veterans at the L.A. County Morgue were finally moved Friday for burial to the Riverside National Cemetery. CBS2/KCAL9 pressed the L.A. County Coroner’s Office Thursday to find out why the bodies had not yet received a proper burial after a source indicated there may have been as many as 60 veterans at the morgue for the past year and a half. The morgue says the bodies were unclaimed and they don’t know how long the veterans were there. The law states veterans are supposed to receive a proper burial. The Veterans Administration says

The VA’s Socialist Paradise

For the left, the Department of Veterans Affairs is how health care is ideally supposed to work. No insurance companies, no private doctors, no competition — just the government and the patient. Paul Krugman, The New York Times columnist, has held up the VA as a model for the entire country. The Washington Monthly ran a famous article in 2005 arguing that the VA was leading the way for U.S. health care. The socialist senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, is such a reflexive defender that in an instantly notorious interview on CNN he pooh-poohed the burgeoning scandal that may involve

When America sends men and women to fight, it owes them an enduring debt, starting with competent and timely health care and disability benefits when they leave active duty. President Obama expressed outrage on Wednesday at recent charges of wrongdoing in the Department of Veterans Affairs’ health care system. He also dispatched his deputy chief of staff to Phoenix to assess explosive allegations that government workers falsified data to hide long wait times for veterans needing to see doctors. But expressing outrage is hardly enough for a president who, as a candidate in 2008, criticized the agency and vowed to

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B.
