Summer Snow To Greet Obama As He Arrives In Alaska For Global Warming Fear Mongering Visit…

Love it.

Via Roy Spencer:

When President Obama visits Alaska this week to campaign for a new international agreement to fight global warming climate change, Alaska will be experiencing colder than normal weather and forecast summer snows, as seen in this WeatherBell.com graphic of forecast total snowfall by Friday:

Besides this latest example of the Gore Effect, the dirty little secret is that the climate is always changing, and what better place to illustrate the role of Mother Nature (not humans) than in Alaska?

Alaska weather matches its geography – extreme. Temperatures there have ranged from 100 deg F (in 1915) to 80 below zero F (in 1971). Summer days are so long that they can grow pumpkins weighing over 1,000 lbs. Nevertheless, yearly average temperatures are actually below freezing — even in the warmest years.

The supposed poster child glacier for global warming in Alaska is Mendenhall Glacier…except that it had already retreated one mile by the early 1900s, long before human greenhouse gas emissions could be blamed.

Columbia University Accused Of Being “Racially Insensitive” With “Consent Is Bae” Posters…

CNvfsOpUEAAaNL9

Another day, another precious little snowflake has its feelings hurt.

Via Campus Reform:

A university in New York City is facing criticism for promoting affirmative consent with a slogan that has been variously described as both patronizing and racially insensitive.

As part of its “Sexual Violence Response” (SVR) campaign, Columbia University is displaying posters declaring that, “CONSENT IS BAE,” followed by the hashtag “BeforeAnythingElse,” according to a post in the student blog Bwog.

The anonymous tipster who first brought attention to the posters told Bwog some students find the slogan offensive, believing it “both trivializes consent and appropriates African American Vernacular English” by using a slang term that originated in the black community and later became a pop culture phenomenon.

Columbia’s interpretation of the term as an acronym for “before anything else” is widespread on internet forums, but linguist Neal Whitman, who investigated the term’s etymology for the website Visual Thesaurus, finds strong support for the notion that “bae” is in fact a shortening of the word “baby” that was first employed by African Americans.

From there, it was eventually appropriated by the culture at large, in the process taking on an amorphous secondary meaning as a synonym for “good.”

Bear To ‘Come Together’ With Bear: Obama To ‘Run Wild With Bear Grylls’ In Alaska

Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 12.52.09 PM

I think this is about the toughest bear with which he can deal, and not like he has anything else to address.

Via Time:

The primary purpose of President Obama’s official visit to Alaska, which begins Monday, is to highlight the effects of climate change on the region. But between a possible hike along the Exit Glacier and visits with salmon fishermen, he will also test his capacity to survive in the wilderness as he tapes a special episode of the NBC reality show Running Wild with Bear Grylls, set to air later this year.

The show, now in its second season, has brought celebrities like Kate Winslet and Channing Tatum face-to-face with the elements as Grylls, a survival expert, offers tips on how not to die from snake bites (kill and eat the snake before it eats you) and hunger (eat worms if need be). Past episodes have been filmed in places like Appalachia, Scotland and Yosemite, but Obama’s turn on the show will mark its first trip to Alaska, as well as its first appearance by a sitting president.

Obama, who has taken to exclaiming, “the bear is loose!” when leaving the White House for a coffee or a walk, can only hope that his catchphrase remains in the metaphorical realm.

But it might be interesting to see if Grylls puts him through his paces or makes him drink urine, as Grylls has done on the show.

Meanwhile, environmentalists are pointing out that if this were supposed to be all all about climate change and the environment, Obama has issued final permits for Shell to drill in the Arctic.

Obama: ‘There’s Not A Smidgen Of Evidence’ That I’m Anti-Semitic

Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 12.06.18 PM

Hmm, where have we heard him say something like that before? How’d that turn on on the truth scale?

Via The Hill:

President Obama said he is personally hurt by the anti-semitism accusations he has faced since signing the nuclear deal with Iran.

Obama told the Jewish publication Forward “there’s not a smidgen of evidence” to back up the charge.

“Oh, of course,” he said. “And there’s not a smidgen of evidence for it, other than the fact that there have been times where I’ve disagreed with a particular Israeli government’s position on a particular issue.”

The president is seeking to soothe tensions with the Jewish community over the Iran nuclear deal, which is opposed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and many U.S. Jewish groups.

Obama’s critics have slammed him for negotiating with the Iranian regime, which denies the Holocaust and funds terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah.

If she manages to limp to the nomination, this would finish her off. Oh, wouldn’t that be glorious? Feel the Bern!

Via Newsmax:

Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders will be breaking from the Democratic Party and running for president as a third party, a move that “would all but guarantee a catastrophic split in the Democratic vote and ensure a Republican victory,” Ed Klein confidential reports, citing sources inside Sanders’ campaign.

“Sources say Sanders believes that despite his ever-growing crowds of fired-up supporters, he’ll never overcome Hillary’s — or, for that matter, (Vice President Joe) Biden’s — advantage in money, organization and endorsements,” Klein writes.

Students Throwing Away 56% More Vegetables And Fruits Because Of Michelle Obama’s “Healthy” Lunch Rules

obamamichelle12102014getty_0

Shocker.

Via CBS/Conn:

Though many students may be loading up fruits and vegetables on their lunch trays, a lot of those aren’t actually being eaten.

New federal guidelines that require healthier school lunches are in effect, but a lot of children are simply throwing out fruits and vegetables instead of eating them, according to a new study.

University of Vermont researchers conducted a small study using digital photos to capture students’ lunch trays after selecting food, as they were leaving the lunch line, and then again after they passed their lunch trays to the food disposal area, as reported by CBS News. The study indicates that while more children are placing fruits and vegetables on their trays, they’re consuming fewer of them, with food waste increasing by 56 percent.

“We saw this as a great opportunity to access the policy change and ask a really important question, which was, ‘Does requiring a child to select a fruit or vegetable under the updated national school lunch program guidelines that came into effect in 2012 correspond with increased fruit and vegetable consumption?’” lead study author Sarah Amin told CBS News. “The answer was clearly no.”

The team of researchers evaluated hundred of tray observations over the course of 21 visits to two elementary school, both before and after the USDA guidelines were implemented.

Similar studies have been conducted on fruit and vegetable consumption in schools following the federal guidelines, though a 2014 Harvard School study found conflicting data that suggested kids were eating more fruits and vegetables.

Ohio Lawmakers On Both Sides Of Aisle Furious At Obama Effort To Rename Mt. McKinley

Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 11.29.27 AM

Once again, walking around Congress and the Ohio delegation. But hey, McKinley was just an assassinated Republican President, so no big deal…

Via Fox News:

Ohio lawmakers reacted angrily Sunday to the White House’s announcement that President Obama would formally rename Alaska’s Mt. McKinley — North America’s highest peak — “Denali” during his trip to The Last Frontier this week.

“Mount McKinley … has held the name of our nation’s 25th President for over 100 years,” Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-Ohio, said in a statement. “This landmark is a testament to his countless years of service to our country.” Gibbs also described Obama’s action as “constitutional overreach,” saying that an act of Congress was required to rename the mountain, because a law formally naming it after Ohio’s William McKinley was passed in 1917.

“This political stunt is insulting to all Ohioans, and I will be working with the House Committee on Natural Resources to determine what can be done to prevent this action,” Gibbs said.

The Ohio delegation’s disappointment at the decision cut across party lines.

“We must retain this national landmark’s name in order to honor the legacy of this great American president and patriot,” Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan, whose district includes McKinley’s hometown of Niles, in eastern Ohio.

Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, also blasted the decision as “yet another example of the President going around Congress”, while House Speaker John Boehner said the naming of the mountain after McKinley was “a testament to [the 25th president’s] great legacy .. I am deeply disappointed in this decision.”

ISIS Engaged In Heavy Street Battles As Al-Baghdadi’s Forces Close In On Central Damascus…

isil_3424243b

Via Telegraph:

Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) battled Syrian rebel forces in a Damascus neighbourhood on Monday, bringing the extremists closer than ever to the centre of the capital, a monitoring group said.

Isil militants fought street battles against Islamist rebels in Asali, part of the capital’s southern Qadam district, after seizing two streets there over the weekend, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

“This is the closest Isil has ever been to the heart of Damascus,” Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said.

He said Isil had advanced from the adjacent Al-Hajar Al-Aswad neighbourhood, where they have been based since July 2014.

A Syrian military official confirmed the clashes and said he was “very happy that they are fighting”.

“But we are ready to react if they try to advance into government-held territory,” the official told AFP.

According to the Observatory, opposition-held Qadam has been relatively quiet since a truce between rebel groups and regime forces there a year ago.

It said fighting in the district on Sunday left 15 fighters dead, but it could not specify how many were from Isil and how many were Islamist rebels.

Mr Rahman said the “fierce street battles” had forced civilians to flee the area.

Since its expulsion from the Eastern Ghouta suburb of Damascus last year, Isil has used Al-Hajar Al-Aswad as a base for attacks on the capital.

ISIS Says Its New Currency Will Break The Shackles Of “The Capitalist Financial System Of Enslavement”…

Update: Pics addded.

CNuoqlgWwAEIEL7

Filed under: Things you would hear at a Bernie Sanders rally.

Via Reuters:

Forget the printing press. In readying for the rollout of Islamic State’s new money, goldsmiths and silver smelters have been toiling away.

The jihadist group on Saturday touted “the return of the gold dinar” in an hour-long video issued by its media wing, al Hayat. Islamic State’s policy-making Shura Council last year tasked its Beit al Mal, or treasury, with minting the coins, which come in several denominations made of gold, silver and copper.

The currency is meant to break the shackles of “the capitalist financial system of enslavement, underpinned by a piece of paper called the Federal Reserve dollar note,” the group said in the video. It didn’t explain where the coins were being minted, nor how they’ll be distributed or replace currencies circulating in the territory the group occupies in parts of Iraq and Syria.

Islamic State first announced its intention to issue its own money in November, five months after it seized the northern Iraqi city of Mosul and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announced a caliphate. The move was seen by analysts as part of the group’s efforts to build the institutions of a functioning state.

The jihadists have amassed a war chest of millions of dollars, partly through collecting taxes, and by seizing oil refineries. Bank and jewelry store robberies, extortion, smuggling and kidnapping for ransom are other important sources of revenue for the group, which metes out brutal punishment to anyone who opposes its rule, including beheadings and crucifixions.
Morale Booster

Baghdad-based economist Basim Jameel said the announcement is an attempt to boost the morale of Islamic State fighters, who have suffered battlefield setbacks in recent months, including the loss of Tikrit in March.

The group said its 21-carat 1-dinar coin weighs 4.25 grams, while the 21-carat five-dinar coin weighs double that. Three dominations of silver dirhams and two of copper coins were minted for smaller transactions, it said.

Each coin bears an inscription that reads, “The Islamic State, a caliphate based on the doctrine of prophecy.” The 1-dinar coin also shows seven stalks of wheat, which the group said is meant to represent “the blessing of spending in the path of Allah.” The five-dinar coin bears the image of a map of the world.

Al-Qaeda Enforces Sharia Law Over Areas It Controls In Yemen, Publicly Lashes 10 Men For “Insulting Allah”…

Another one of Obama’s “JV” teams.

(AFP) – Al-Qaida militants in southeastern Yemen have publicly flogged 10 men in a new sign of their growing control over the lawless region, witnesses and an official said on Friday.

The men were whipped in Al-Shihr, a coastal town in Hadramawt province, after being summarily convicted of insulting God and consuming alcohol and drugs, the official said.

Dozens of people attended the flogging, which is said to follow the Islamic sharia law.

Witnesses said each man received between 80 and 100 lashes and that both screamed in pain.

Toronto Bans Non-Muslims From Taxpayer-Funded Apartment Buildings…

canada

Toronto’s citizens, not so thrilled.

Via Pakistan Christian Post:

“Ban on Infidels to get housing in an apartment building in Toronto where city government entered in an agreement with mosque that only Muslims will reside in this building” against which one Canadian citizen named Ezra Levant have launched a petition.

The issue surfaced in limelight when one Canadian citizen Mr. Austin Lewis aged 21-year and paralyzed, (confined to a wheelchair) needed public housing.

Mr. Lewis applied to live in a taxpayer-subsidized apartment on Finch Avenue in Toronto but he was told that he wasn’t allowed — because he wasn’t a Muslim!

Not only did the City of Toronto knew about this ban on non-Muslims, they approved it in a special contract with the Muslim mosque that runs the place. So taxpayers of all religions are forced to subsidize a special apartment building just for Muslims.

Sunday Smile: The Transformer Birthday Cake

Sorry about late posting of smile.

Via Yahoo:

A 6-year-old boy’s dreams came true when he ambitiously asked his parents for a Transformers birthday cake. But this isn’t just your average Optimus Pastry.

YouTube user Russell Monro and his wife teamed up to make their kid a cake that actually transforms. Using a 3D printer, Monro created a moving platform that holds the cake, which was made by his wife.

The final result brought Optimus Prime to life in moving cake form. (Not to mention the sheer joy on his son’s face.)

If that wasn’t jaw-dropping enough for the 6-year-old and his birthday party guests, his dad even built a speaker into the platform to make Optimus Prime say one of his famous quotes: “At the end of this day, one shall stand, one shall fall!”

Due to the overwhelming attention, Monro wrote on Thursday in his YouTube comments that he would soon write about the process (though it won’t be a tutorial) and maybe even share the file used for 3D printing the platform. Which is great news for all the parents of 6-year-olds who have seen what “that kid’s dad” can do.

Trump: U.S. Treats Illegal Aliens Better Than Veterans

Pretty much true.

Via Breitbart:

On Saturday, GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump said illegal immigrants are treated better than Wounded Warriors and veterans in America.

Speaking in Nashville at a National Federation of Republican Assemblies event, Trump said that “illegal immigrants, in many cases–not in all cases, but in many cases–are treated better than our veterans, who are the greatest people we have.” Trump spoke about some of the horrors veterans have had to face in accessing basic medical care and services and vowed that veterans would be treated like first-class citizens under a Trump administration.

After mentioning that illegal immigrants and DREAMers were protesting outside of the event, Trump asked, “What about our children?… Why can’t our children that are in the country… Why can’t they be the dreamers?”

Trump added, “nobody ever talks about them… we talk about the DREAMERs… we talk about the illegal immigrants, who, by the way, are treated better than the vets.”

Black ‘Activist’ Podcast Calling For Killing Of Cops Gets Pulled After Publicity

Screen Shot 2015-08-30 at 8.49.37 PM

Here’s the original story on the radio broadcast.

Via Breitbart:

Texas podcast that called for the lynching of white people and the killing of cops appears to have been taken down from their page. While links to the program, “Sunshines F**king Opinion Online Radio” can still be found, the program’s page is no longer there. The podcast called for people to kill cops just days prior to the execution of a Harris County sheriff’s deputy.

The Texas-based radio show’s guests called for lynching white people and taking pictures of them hanging in trees. Another caller spoke of the need for blacks to kill cops to “turn the tide.”

Friday night, when the Harris County sheriff’s deputy was murdered, Sheriff Ron Hickman said that the only motivation for the shooting, so far, appears to be the fact that the deputy was wearing a uniform.

On the Texas-based radio show host’s Twitter page, @LOLatWhiteFear, there appears to be no mention of the murder. There is also not any indication from her that the radio show account has been taken down. However, all links on her Twitter and Instagram account to the program produce “404 Errors” that say “We couldn’t find that page. Seriously, we looked everywhere.”

Via Washington Examiner:

The Internal Revenue Service must turn over any White House requests for taxpayers’ private information, a federal judge ruled Friday.

The IRS cannot cite taxpayer confidentiality laws to avoid turning over the information requested by Cause of Action, Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled. Cause of Action has waged a two-year battle to discover whether Obama administration officials had any hand in the IRS’ targeting of conservative non-profits.

The IRS cannot cite privacy protection “to shield the very misconduct it was enacted to prohibit,” the judge said Friday, according to the Washington Times.
