Boko Haram mocks hashtag diplomacy
Breitbart InstaBlog, by John Hayward

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/14/2014 10:55:01 AM

Further evidence that "hashtag diplomacy" is worse than useless, as the Islamist thugs of Boko Haram release a video mocking the weepy efforts to beg them to release the large number of young women they have abducted: By "bring back our army," he means "release all the captured Boko Haram fighters you´re holding." "Hashtag diplomacy" provides the illusion of action and caring, for people who are more interested in their own image as noble and concerned human-rights crusaders than actually doing something that would help the victims. It´s moralistic posturing and fashionable activism made even easier by the Internet. You don´t

No one could see this coming. s/o Where´s the moron Mooch and her next pathetic, worthless hashtag? This whole hashtag thing is beyond irritating.

Yes, but you see, with liberals it is always how they feel about themselves when they do something, not whether it has any actual effect on the issue. It is very easy to ´#´ and doesn´t require any actual effort, it is tailor made for liberals to do this. Useless gestures for pretended effect.

Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY) recently introduced a bill in the Senate titled the Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act of 2014. Its purpose is “to prohibit governmental entities from discriminating or taking an adverse action against a child welfare service provider on the basis that the provider declines to provide a child welfare service that conflicts, or under circumstances that conflict, with the sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions of the provider.” (Snip) In recent years, some religious child welfare providers who believe that children deserve to be placed with married mothers and fathers have lost government funding and have

Kanye West wants to collaborate with Sir Paul McCartney on his upcoming album. The Yeezus rapper, who has reportedly become very good friends with the former Beatles lead singer has approached him as he puts the finishing touches to his latest material. And it may surprise some fans that 72-year-old Paul has a big appreciation for rap. The Live And Let Die singer revealed in a Twitter Q&A in October last year that his most recent album purchases were Kanye and Jay-Z. And earlier this week, Kanye was backstage as the legendary crooner played a show in LA at the Dodgers Stadium. A

A wind farm requires 700 times more land to produce the same amount of energy as a fracking site, according to analysis by the energy department’s recently-departed chief scientific advisor. Prof David MacKay, who stood down from the Government role at the end of July, published analysis putting shale gas extraction “in perspective”, showing it was far less intrusive on the landscape than wind or solar energy. His intervention was welcomed by fracking groups, who are battling to win public support amid claims from green groups and other critics that shale gas extraction will require the “industrialisation” of the countryside.

   

 

  


 
Trayvon 2.0 Redux – Comparing Mike
Brown and Trayvon Martin Similarities…
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/15/2014 11:25:49 AM     Post Reply
While the two shooting events are separated by two and a half years, Trayvon (Feb 2012) Mike Brown (Aug 2014) the similarities are quite remarkable. One of the key aspects that aligns both narratives is the appearance of the attorney for both families Benjamin Crump. The second key aspect is the way the media portray both events. Here’s some of the similarities: • The age of both was originally misreported. Trayvon was 13, then 15, then 16 and eventually 17. Mike Brown was 17 in most original reports, and then eventually 18. • Both Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin were

According to Politico, Nancy Pelosi is holding a meeting in Napa Valley with a number of distressed Democrats. Heavyweights like Google’s Eric Schmidt are also on hand, along with billionaire leftist Tom Steyer. If they were Republicans, Democrats would accuse Schmidt and Steyer of trying to buy elections. The event, which kicks off today, is not a fundraiser. Pelosi is also bringing in a handful of vulnerable Democratic lawmakers to mix and mingle with some of her biggest supporters. Getting picked to attend is considered an opportunity to schmooze with potential mega donors. Reps. Ami Bera (Calif.), Carol Shea-Porter (N.H.), Ann Kirkpatrick (Ariz.),

From culturally sensitive music to special meals for the lactose intolerant, the organizations the federal government is paying to house and care for the children who have surged across the border illegally are taking pains to make sure they are as comfortable as possible. Dietitians scrutinize the menus each day to make sure they include enough whole grains but not whole milk. Counselors offer life skills classes in Spanish, and intensive English language training, including use of the Rosetta Stone program.

The Secret Service said it is "aware" of a photo that appeared to show an image of an ISIS flag in front of the White House. If authentic, the photo showed a hand holding up an image of a flag for ISIS (also known as ISIL or Islamic State), displayed on a smartphone, on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House fence. That area, closed off to street traffic, is frequented by thousands of tourists every day. It was tweeted from an apparently pro-ISIS Twitter handle @sunna_rev on Aug. 9.

DERRY, N.H. —Like he did for Kelly Ayotte ahead of her primary win for the U.S. Senate in 2010, U.S. Sen. John McCain will head to New Hampshire to told a town hall meeting for Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown. The town hall, which was announced by Brown´s campaign on Tuesday, will be held Monday night in Derry. It is unclear how much Brown is helping with branding by appearing with McCain, the two time winner of the state´s presidential primary. After all, those who were into McCain are probably with Brown in his Republican primary anyway. But the event will

WASHINGTON — Gideons Bibles are going back into Navy lodges. The Navy on Thursday ordered the Bibles returned to rooms and said it is reviewing a decision by the Navy Exchange to remove them from its worldwide network of military hotels. Atheists had cheered a victory after a complaint prompted the exchange to begin moving the Bibles to its lost-and-found bins this summer, but the Navy said the decision was made without consulting senior leadership. “That decision and our religious accommodation policies with regard to the placement of religious materials are under review,” Navy spokesman Cmdr.

The global impact of climate change is “the biggest challenge of all that we face right now,” Secretary of State John Kerry told an audience in Hawaii Wednesday, putting an issue he feels passionately about at the center of a speech entitled “U.S. Vision for Asia-Pacific Engagement.” “The science is screaming at us,” he said. “Ask any kid in school. They understand what a greenhouse is, how it works, why we call it the greenhouse effect.

President Obama won´t make any major announcements on immigration reform during his secretive mid-vacation trip back to Washington next week, the White House said Wednesday. The president is expected to return to the White House on Sunday, but officials won´t say why Obama is taking the unusual, and costly, trip back to Washington. He´s expected to return to Martha´s Vineyard, where he´s been vacationing, on Tuesday. Speculation has circled around whether Obama might make an announcement of executive actions he´s taking on immigration reform, or a surprise visit from a foreign leader.

I’ve been asking myself that question a lot lately. The more I ask it, the more I come to the realization that I haven’t changed all that much. Sure, I’m a little older … OK, a lot older. I

President Obama said Thursday that “now is the time for healing” after a series of clashes between protesters and police over the shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., but he also called for an open and transparent investigation “to see that justice is done” in the case. Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., where he is on vacation, Obama said that many Americans “have been deeply disturbed” by images of violence in the St. Louis suburb following the police shooting Saturday afternoon of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old African American who was headed to technical college this week. “When something like

Going by the numbers, Apple fits into a stereotype of many tech companies in Silicon Valley: its workforce is overwhelmingly white and male. Overall, 70 percent of Apple employees are men as opposed to 30 percent women, and 55 percent are white, according to statistics provided by Apple. In addition, 15 percent of its overall workforce is Asian, 11 percent is Hispanic, and 7 percent is Black. (Snip) In the letter, Cook added that Apple´s definition of diversity extends beyond race, gender, and ethnicity to include such categories as "sexual orientation, veteran status, and disabilities."

Washington - Defense Department officials said late Wednesday that United States airstrikes and Kurdish fighters had broken the Islamic militants’ siege of Mount Sinjar, allowing thousands of the Yazidis trapped there to escape. An initial report from about a dozen Marines and Special Operations forces who arrived on Tuesday and spent 24 hours on the northern Iraqi mountain said that “the situation is much more manageable,” a senior Defense official said in an interview. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, speaking to reporters Wednesday night at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., said it was “far less likely now” that the United States

Shocking accounts of medieval brutality — including video of kneeling Iraqis being gunned down, a Twitter image of a young jihadist holding a severed head and threats by ISIS to take its savagery to the White House — have prompted desperate calls for the international community to stop the fanatical Islamic group. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon this week joined Pope Francis, Egypt´s top cleric and several world leaders in condemning the terrorist group, which now calls itself Islamic State and has carved out a caliphate, or nation of strict Sharia law, in northern Iraq and Syria.

California lawmakers are poised to enact a regulation requiring every college and university that receives public funding to define consensual sex in a way that attempts to micro-manage everyone’s sexual affairs. The first-in-the-nation legislation already passed California’s state Senate by a vote of 27-4 in May, The Associated Press reports. If the bill passes the assembly this month, it will then go to the desk of Gov. Jerry Brown. The bill, which is based on guidance from the Obama administration, requires an “affirmative consent standard” that school administrators would use to determine whether a sexual assault has occurred. The standard would define

Liberals like Chris Mooney of Mother Jones agree that today’s Republican party is “environmental[ly] retrograde,” but often acknowledge it wasn’t like that a few decades ago. For example, as Mooney noted in a Tuesday post, a GOP president, Richard Nixon, established the EPA. Mooney reports, however, that in the early 1990s the party as a whole grew distinctly more hostile towards environmentalism. He touches on several possible explanations, including a backlash against the newly elected vice president, Earth in the Balance author Al Gore, as well as a theory that after the Soviet Union collapsed, environmentalists succeeded Communists as major objects

Robin Williams resented having to do a second Mrs Doubtfire film but felt compelled in order to keep money coming in, a close friend of the actor has told the Telegraph. Williams, who had been working on four projects when he was believed to have taken his own life this week, was said to have been dreading making more films as they "brought out his demons". He had committed to starring in sequels to the hugely successful Mrs Doubtfire and Night in the Museum, as well as comedy Merry Friggin’ Christmas, and the drama Boulevard.
