White House Blames ‘Extreme Ideology’ For McCarthy Backing Out…


Via The Hill:

Press secretary Josh Earnest said it might be easy to “poke fun at the chaos,” but stressed that House Republicans need to choose a leader who can quell a vocal faction of conservatives “that places their extreme ideology ahead of everything else.”
“The challenge facing the next Speaker of the House … is the same challenge John Boehner faced: to unite a divided Republican caucus,” Earnest told reporters.

President Obama believes the next Speaker will need to “tame the forces” of the “extreme ideologues” within the GOP and compromise with Democrats to pass important legislation, Earnest added.

Not Welcome: Europe Deals With Economic Migrants…


Too late now.

Via LA Times:

Inundated with half a million asylum seekers already this year, Europe is sharpening its latest message to would-be new arrivals: Don’t come.

Security ministers from the European Union’s 28 countries agreed Thursday to step up deportations of people deemed to be “economic migrants” seeking a better life rather than refugees fleeing war and persecution. The ministers also decided to beef up the EU’s border agency, Frontex, and to create a dedicated deportation office within it.

WikiLeaks Offers $50,000 For Video Of U.S Strike On Hospital…


WikiLeaks struggles to stay relevant in 2015.

Via Fox News:

The activist group WikiLeaks announced Thursday that it is offering up to a $50,000 reward for video footage of a controversial American airstrike in Afghanistan, Time magazine reported.

The attack, which targeted a hospital Saturday in Kunduz, killed 22 people. Army Gen. John F. Campbell, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, described the airstrike as a mistake.

“Our patients burned in their beds. Doctors, nurses, and other staff were killed as they worked. Our colleagues had to operate on each other,” Jason Cone, the executive director of Doctors Without Borders aid group, said during a New York press conference Wednesday.

Study: Government Workers Make 78% More Than Private Sector Workers…


You probably knew this already.

Via FreeBeacon:

Employees for the federal government earn far more than their counterparts in the private sector, according to a new study by the Cato Institute.

Federal workers’ pay and benefits were 78 percent higher than private employees, who earned an average of $52,688 less than public sector workers last year.

The study found that federal government workers earned an average of $84,153 in 2014, compared to the private sector’s average of $56,350. Cato based its findings on figures from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA).

But when adding in benefits pay for federal workers, the difference becomes more dramatic. Federal employees made $119,934 in total compensation last year, while private sector workers earned $67,246, a difference of over $52,000, or 78 percent.

Rupert Murdoch Wishes We’d Have A “Real” Black President…


America does too.

Via Washington Post:

In 2007, a freshman senator from Illinois named Barack Obama seemed like he might mount a run for the White House. But when fellow Democratic senator Joe Biden offered backhanded praise of Obama, calling him “articulate,” some wondered: Was Obama, the son of a black father and a white mother, black enough to win the hearts of African Americans?

“As much as his biracial identity has helped Obama build a sizable following in middle America, it’s also opened a gap for others to question his authenticity as a black man,” future MacArthur genius Ta-Nehisi Coates wrote for Time. “In calling Obama the ‘first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,’ the implication was that the black people who are regularly seen by whites — or at least those who aspire to the highest office in the land — are none of these things. But give Biden credit — at least he acknowledged Obama’s identity.”

Number Of Sanctuary Cities Grows To 340…



Via Washington Times:

The list of sanctuary cities has grown to more than 340, and they shielded an average of 1,000 immigrants a month from deportation last year — and more than 2,000 of those released have already been arrested for yet more crimes, according to a report being released Thursday by the Center for Immigration Studies.

Among those released are illegal immigrants accused of murders and brutal assaults, said Jessica Vaughan, the author of the report, which comes just as the Senate is poised to begin debating legislation to try to crack down on sanctuary jurisdictions.

BREAKING: Air Force Hero Who Helped Stop Paris Terror Attack Nearly Stabbed To Death In Sacramento….Update: Stone Now In Stable Condition…Update: Video Showing Attack, Two Asian Males Being Sought…


Updates to follow.


An Air Force medic who helped thwart a terrorist attack in France is in critical condition after being repeatedly stabbed, reports said.

Spencer Stone, 22, was stabbed in Sacramento, near where he’s stationed, NBC and CBS News reported.

KCRA TV said he was attacked shortly before 1 a.m. near a popular bar area in midtown Sacramento. He was stabbed repeatedly in the torso, and investigators initially feared he wouldn’t survive, the report said.

No further details were immediately available. He was described as being in stable condition.

Stone and two other off-duty U.S. servicemen were awarded the French Legion of Honor after they stopped a would-be gunman from carrying out an attack on a Paris bound train.


His friend, fellow hero Alek Skarlatos, sent him prayers:

Skarlatos is from Roseburg and is a student at Umpqua Community College. He would have been on campus during the attack except that he was out of the area to do the Dancing With The Stars T.V. show.

Police are saying they do not believe it to be a terrorist attack, that Stone came to the aid of a friend.

Sacramento police tweeted: “The assault incident is not related to a terrorist act. Assault occurred near a bar, alcohol is believed to be a factor.”

In a positive sign, Stone’s condition has been amended to stable.


Via CBS:

Stone reportedly suffered a wound to the heart and his left lung.

The owner of a liquor store says he has video of the incident and it appears show five to six men in a group attacking someone in an intersection.

The Sacramento Police Department confirms that an assault occurred at the location in midtown just before 1 a.m. and are investigating. They would not say who was injured and a suspect has not been identified.


Here’s video of the attack. It looks like he was fighting them off until getting stabbed.

Police describing it says Stone came to the aid of a woman being harassed by men which then escalated into a fight, during which he was stabbed multiple times. Stone is now in serious, but stable condition.

According to CBS,

Police described the stabbing suspects only as two Asian male adults who were wearing white t-shirts. They reportedly left the area in a dark-grey or black 2009-2012 Toyota Camry. Police say the stabbing was not a random act, but was an incident that started in a nightclub.

Dems Slam House’s Special Planned Parenthood Probe As “The New Benghazi”…



WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-led House voted Wednesday to create a special panel to investigate Planned Parenthood and its procurement of fetal tissue as the GOP continued pressing an issue that has galvanized conservatives since secret videos surfaced this summer.

The near party-line vote was 242-184, as Democrats dismissed the probe as a wasteful political exercise by the GOP. It was unclear if Democrats would participate in the committee’s work.

Republicans said the committee was needed to examine whether Planned Parenthood is breaking laws or misusing taxpayer money. Four other congressional committees are already investigating the women’s health organization, three in the House and one in the Senate.

“Even if these abortion providers somehow manage to comply with all federal laws while dismembering children, it’s clear we need to learn more about their barbaric tactics,” said Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C.

Democrats likened the new House panel to one Republicans created last year to investigate the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans. Hillary Rodham Clinton was secretary of state at the time, and Democrats say that committee was designed to hurt her prospects as a Democratic presidential candidate. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., now trying to replace the retiring John Boehner, R-Ohio, as speaker, seemed to suggest as much in a TV interview last week.

“Here we go again. Planned Parenthood is the new Benghazi,” said Rep. Lois Frankel, D-Fla.

House Freedom Caucus Endorsed Webster, Likely Blocking McCarthy From Reaching Necessary Numbers

Kevin McCarthy

One reason McCarthy dropped out. Another possible reason here.

Via The Hill:

The conservative House Freedom Caucus on Wednesday endorsed little-known Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.) for Speaker — a bold move that raises serious doubts about whether Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy can cobble together the 218 votes on the House floor he needs to be promoted.

McCarthy, a five-term California Republican, is expected to easily win the nomination when House Republicans huddle at noon Thursday to pick a successor to outgoing Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

But the true test will come Oct. 29, when the House holds a public roll call vote to formally elect the next Speaker.

The Freedom Caucus, led by Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), holds enough votes to essentially veto a McCarthy Speakership, though it’s unclear whether all members would cast their ballots the same way.
No one can be elected Speaker unless they win 218 votes.

“I think he’s over the 200 hump, but that’s not the hump,” said Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.), a McCarthy backer who acknowledged the leader still has a steep climb.

Rep. Jones Warned Yesterday That Leadership Candidates Should Drop Out If They Had Skeletons In Their Closet

Kevin McCarthy dropped out today. Hmm….

Via Breitbart:

Republican North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) is urging all candidates for Speaker of the House to drop out of the race if skeletons in their closet might embarrass the Republican Party.

Jones sent a letter Wednesday to Republican Conference chairman Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) issuing a challenge to House Speaker candidates Reps. Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), and Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL).

“Some of the most difficult times have been when our Republican leaders or potential Republican leaders must step down because of skeletons in their closets,” Jones wrote. “We’ve seen it with former Speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep. Bob Livingston, who ran for Speaker in 1998.”

“With all the voter distrust of Washington felt around the country, I’m asking that any candidate for Speaker of the House, majority leader, and majority whip withdraw himself from the leadership election if there are any misdeeds he has committed since joining Congress that will embarrass himself, the Republican Conference, and the House of Representatives if they become public,” Jones wrote.

Harry Reid Suing Exercise Band Company For Ruining His Sex Life…

Harry Reid


Via Gawker:

U.S. Sen. Harry Reid just snapped over the snap of a snappy rubber band, and he’s not snapping back from it any time soon.

The minority leader from Nevada announced on Wednesday that he is suing the company that produces and markets a rubber exercise band. The move comes after an unfortunate accident last New Years’ Day, in which Reid’s exercise band “broke or slipped,” causing him to fall and suffer injuries to his face, eye, and ribs. He explained the injury last January. […]

A closer read of the case shows that the Reids are claiming loss of marital consortium, a legal term defined as the “inability of one’s spouse to have normal marital relations, which is a euphemism for sexual intercourse.”

ISIS Slave Market Puts Women and Girls on Same List as Cattle


Via The Nation:

This piece was originally commissioned for La Repubblica and appeared simultaneously in The Nation and French Elle:

I am thinking of the price list leaked out from the ISIS Sex Slave Market that included women and girls on the same list as cattle. ISIS needed to impose price controls as they were worried about a downturn in their market.

Forty- to 50-year-old women were priced at $41, 30- to 40-year-old women at $62, 20- to 30-year-old women, $82 and 1- to 9-year-old children, $165. Women over 50 weren’t even listed. They had no market value. They were discarded like milk cartons with past sale date markers. But they weren’t simply abandoned in some smelly dung heap of trash. First, they were probably tortured, beheaded, raped—then thrown into a pile of rotting corpses. I am thinking of a 1-year-old child’s body for sale and what it would be like for a hefty, sex-deprived, war-driven 30-year-old soldier to buy her, package her, take her home like a new television. What would he be feeling or thinking as he unwrapped her baby flesh and raped her with his penis the size of her tiny body?

I am thinking that, in 2015, I am actually reading an online Best Practices for Sex Slavery manual with step-by-step instructions and rules of how to treat your sex slave published by a very organized wing (Bureau of Sex Slavery) of a rogue government with the unapologetic mandate of regulating the raping, beating, buying, and enslaving of women.

Here are examples of the dos and don’ts in the manual: “It is permissible to beat the female slave as a [form of] darb ta’deeb [disciplinary beating], [but] it is forbidden to [use] darb al-takseer [literally, breaking beating], [darb] al-tashaffi [beating for the purpose of achieving gratification], or [darb] al-ta’dheeb [torture beating]. Further, it is forbidden to hit the face.”

Hillary Clinton: NRA “Reminds Me Of Dealing With Communists”…


Nice job alienating your base, Hillary.

Via Daily Caller:

Hillary Clinton took aim at the National Rifle Association in Iowa on Wednesday, hitting the group for what she claims is its “absolutist” stance on gun rights and comparing it to “the Iranians and Communists.”

Clinton drew the connection to the gun rights group and murderous tyrants after a woman in the audience at a town hall meeting in Mount Vernon noted that President Obama seemed defeated during his remarks on gun control following last week’s mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore.

“How are you going to keep from being sad and tired?” the woman asked Clinton.

“I think by being angry and determined,” Clinton said to applause. […]

“You know, the NRA’s position reminds me of negotiating with the Iranians or the Communists,” she added.

Moonbat Alert! CA Gun Owner Who Feels Responsible For ‘Gun Violence’ Destroys His Gun

Screen Shot 2015-10-08 at 11.07.28 AM

He works for the Modesto Bee and went to Columbia University, in addition to being from California, all you need to know.

Via The Blaze:

Steve Elliott of California is a self-proclaimed “responsible gun owner.”

In a recent a Facebook post, he explained how he saved up money from a paper route and working at a restaurant to buy his first Browning 12-guage shotgun at 12 years old “in time for dove season.”

“In the years before I could legally drive, I’d tie the Browning across the handlebars of my bike and ride to the fields outside town to hunt,” he continued.

Since his youth, Elliott said that he owned several guns, most recently a handgun for protection. He kept this firearm locked in a safe.

“Like I said, responsible,” he wrote.

“And so while I’d like to believe I’m not part and party to the gun violence that stains America, I can’t. My grandmother shot and killed herself with a gun, and a few years ago my father shot and didn’t quite kill himself with one. My stepbrother died in a murder-suicide with a gun, and the husband of one of my sister’s co-workers was killed in a mass shooting.”

While none of these tragic events involved his gun, Elliott said that with “every new mass shooting, I’m reminded that I bear a portion of the responsibility for our nation’s gun violence. There are too many guns to do anything about it, the gun lobby says. Regulations are a slippery slope that only limit the rights of responsible gun owners, they say.”

A rape victim branded “unclean” by her family after the assault in her native Syria has been murdered in Germany amid claims her mother ordered the honour killing.

The woman, named only as Rokstan M, was found buried in a shallow grave in an allotment in the eastern German city of Dessau after being stabbed to death.

Police believe the 20-year-old was murdered by her father and brothers, who thought she had brought shame on their family through the sex attack by three men.

And Rokstan’s former employer, author Mark Krüger, has claimed the young woman’s mother was behind the slaying, ordering the men to carry out the murder.
