The Lebanese ice bucket
challenge has morphed into
burning Islamic State flags

Washington Post, by Rick Noack

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 9/5/2014 4:20:48 AM

Last weekend, several Lebanese activists started a trend which has since gained prominence under the hashtag #BurnISISFlagChallenge or #BurnISIS. The protesters burned an Islamic State flag in retaliation to the presumed beheading of a Lebanese officer, an idea which quickly motivated others to post similar pictures or videos. The self-perpetuating campaign follows the model of the well-known #IceBucketChallenge, and has found supporters on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks. Here is one example:

Finally, something good has come of the Ice Bucket Challenge.

I prefer the "a** wipe" challenge of that flag.

Obama´s ´Refugee´ Designation
Nothing But Politics
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 10/2/2014 10:32:38 AM     Post Reply
Politics: President Obama has declared 4,000 illegal immigrant minors "refugees" and given them the right to stay in the U.S. Why just 4,000 and not all of them? Well, it might just be that the lucky 4,000 are tied to people who can vote. As some 66,000 illegal minors, along with 240,000 larger family groups, stream across our border confident the White House won´t send them back, President Obama abruptly announced a de facto amnesty for 4,000 Central American children. He is allowing them to apply for refugee status in their home countries of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala without the cost

The 17-Year-Old Leading
Thousands to Protest Communism

An “extremist” … “a threat” … “an infiltrate.” These are the words Chinese mainland authorities, national security and pro-Beijing newspapers use to describe 17-year-old Joshua Wong. But to those in favor of freedom, Wong is a hero.He’s one of the students leading the demonstrations in Hong Kong where millions are gathered making legitimate demands for democracy. The protests were sparked after Beijing officials rejected a proposal that would allow open nominations for a 2017 leadership election last month. On Sept. 26, Wong and 12 other people were arrested and dragged out of government headquarters. He was bleeding and screaming, and wasn’t

CHICAGO – Representatives of 40 churches in Illinois and other states announced Monday their support for the Sanctuary Movement on behalf of undocumented immigrants facing deportation. “The movement is gaining strength and we’re not alone in our call to the conscience of all who believe in God,” the Rev. Jose Landaverde of the United American Catholic Church told Efe. During a visit made to him by representatives of churches of different denominations from the greater Chicago area and other Illinois cities and from states like Arizona, the priest recalled that “it is a commandment of the gospels and the Bible” to provide

QUITO – Hundreds of delegates from leftist political parties from 20 Latin American nations warned of threats to the process of change taking place in the region on the final day of the first Latin American Progressive Encounter (ELAP). The two-day event held in the Ecuadorean capital ended late Tuesday at the Plaza de San Francisco where a final statement of the meeting was read. The “Quito Declaration” expressed support for the progressive governments in the region and rejected intervention by “neo-colonialist powers” in the processes of change occurring there. Left-wing representatives from Germany, Spain and Greece attended the event

Venezuela: Shiny happy people

Happy people who buy as necessary. That is Venezuela, according to the last definitions provided by government spokespersons. The assertion implies three things: Venezuelans are happy; Venezuelans buy; Venezuelans buy as necessary. All that is a vision of success, we infer, in socialism. For 16 years, all that Venezuelans have heard is that, whereas, in fact, they face the same mess, aggravated though, that has become Venezuela. The slogan of the government officer who refers to happy Venezuelans buying as necessary also implies that happiness can be reached very easily: going to the supermarket and buying as necessary. Anything else, thanks

The Obama administration yesterday announced that it is spending $9 million to provide lawyers for some of the young illegal immigrants who flooded across the border earlier this year, but voters strongly believe these illegal immigrants do not have the same legal rights U.S. citizens do. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 68% of Likely U.S. Voters say the new illegal immigrants should not have the same legal rights and protections that U.S. citizens have. Just 19% disagree. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure. (To see question wording, click here.) Seventy-one percent (71%) say these illegal newcomers should not

Argentine president Cristina Fernandez defiantly claimed on Tuesday that financial, industrial and local political groups together with outside support want to remove her from office, and warned that “if something happens to me, don´t look to the Mid East, look North” in clear reference to the United States. In a national address from a Government House packed with officials and chanting supporters, Cristina Fernandez referred to threats on her life by the Islamic State (IS), currently fighting against US air strikes in Iraq and Syria. However, this time she suggested that the Islamic radicals were not a threat to her

It´s not uncommon to see Marc Trujillo with a drawing tool and sketchbook in-hand when out in public. The painter, and figure drawing college professor is an active observer. In fact, often when walking down a produce aisle or waiting in line to order a meal, the artist is also playing location scout and casting manager for his next single-frame, silent film. Recently, Trujillo was filling up at a gas station in Van Nuys when he found inspiration for producing "14114 Vanowen Street." Something about the geography of the spot caught his eye.

Somalis Say: Show
Us The Money

Posted By: PageTurner- 9/30/2014 3:54:14 PM     Post Reply
We’ve got a problem in the Twin Cities that is based in our large and still growing population of Somali immigrants. Somalis have been immigrating to Minnesota for more than twenty years now. They have taken advantage of all the services that our state and local institutions offer. They have been welcomed with open arms, in Minnesota’s characteristic style. Yet Minnesota’s Somali community — a/k/a “Minnesotans” — is the most fertile ground in the United States for the recruitment of terrorists by foreign terrorist organizations in Africa and the Middle East. We are concerned that they may choose to return “home”

CARACAS – Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has said that his government was applying the “socialist formula: an abandoned company taken over by the working class,” in reference to last week’s occupation of plants belonging to the U.S. cleaning products maker Clorox. “It’s the socialist formula. Any company that is abandoned will be taken over by the working class with the support of the revolutionary government. Let it be known,” Maduro said during a cabinet meeting aired Monday on state television channel VTV. The Venezuelan government Saturday announced the “temporary” occupation of the Clorox plants as well as the resumption of

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community. Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor´s sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered.

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,
