The dictator has spoken. Syrian refugees more important than what Americans or their duly elected representatives want.

Via Fox News:

The Obama administration warned states over the Syrian refugee crisis Wednesday, telling them in a letter they do not have legal authority to refuse the refugees, and states that do not comply may be subject to enforcement action.

The letter, from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), told state resettlement officials that they may not deny benefits and services to refugees based on their country of origin or religion.

“Accordingly, states may not categorically deny ORR-funded benefits and services to Syrian refugees,” the letter, dated Wednesday, says. “Any state with such a policy would not be in compliance with the State Plan requirements, applicable statutes, and their own assurances, and could be subject to enforcement action, including suspension and termination.”

The letter went on to say that the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on race and national origin in all programs that receive federal financial assistance.

“Thus, it is not permissible to deny federally funded benefits such as Medicaid or TANF to refugees who otherwise meet the eligibility requirements,” the letter says.

German Professor Confirms NASA Has Been Tampering With Climate Data On An “Unbelievable” Scale…


Shocking exactly zero people.

Via Breitbart:

A German professor has confirmed what skeptics from Britain to the US have long suspected: that NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies has largely invented “global warming” by tampering with the raw temperature data records.

Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert is a retired geologist and data computation expert. He has painstakingly examined and tabulated all NASA GISS’s temperature data series, taken from 1153 stations and going back to 1881. His conclusion: that if you look at the raw data, as opposed to NASA’s revisions, you’ll find that since 1940 the planet has been cooling, not warming.

According to Günter Ederer, the German journalist who has reported on Ewert’s findings:

From the publicly available data, Ewert made an unbelievable discovery: Between the years 2010 and 2012 the data measured since 1881 were altered so that they showed a significant warming, especially after 1950. […] A comparison of the data from 2010 with the data of 2012 shows that NASA-GISS had altered its own datasets so that especially after WWII a clear warming appears – although it never existed.

Chicago Black Man Arrested For Execution-Style Killing Of 9-Year-Old Tyshawn Lee…

Still no marches or protests for Tyshawn.


BLM unavailable for comment


A 27-year-old man has been arrested in the execution-style shooting of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee.

Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi confirmed Corey Morgan, of the 7800 block of South Hoyne Avenue, has been arrested in connection with the shooting. Guglielmi did not provide further details on the arrest, but said police would have a formal announcement later Friday.

Morgan has been a person of interest from the start. Last week, he was arrested on a weapons charge in Oak Lawn, after police found him and another man with loaded .40-caliber semi-automatic handguns.

Police had been running tests on those weapons since the arrest, but it was not immediately clear if the guns have been linked to Tyshawn’s murder.

Morgan and co-defendant Dwight Boone-Doty were given $1 million bail for the gun charges. Morgan was released after posting his $100,000 bond. Morgan has been repeatedly questioned about Tyshawn’s murder.

Tyshawn, who was in fourth grade, was shot multiple times at close range with a .40-caliber weapon, after being lured into an alley at 80th and Damen, near his grandmother’s house, on Nov. 2.

Paragliding Jihadist Leaves Family In Israel For The Islamic State In Syria…

Jihadi Paragliding

Next stop: Europe as a refugee?

Majdal Shams (AFP) – Shortly before sunset, Nidal Salah stared across the fence towards his new life in Syria with the Islamic State movement — paraglider at the ready.

Firing up the engine-powered glider, the 23-year-old Arab Israeli rose over the Israeli-Syrian demarcation line towards the town of Jamlah, controlled by an IS-affiliated group.

He became the first Israeli to take such a route to enter Syria’s civil war, with his plans apparently unknown to his family and authorities, who minutes later scrambled military helicopters.

His fate had been a mystery, but in an interview with AFP his family confirmed they have received multiple messages from him, including a photo apparently showing him with two other jihadists.

His trip sparked an investigation in Israel, where authorities have since arrested six others suspected of seeking to join IS.

– A daring plan –

For his family, Salah’s fate was sealed nearly a year earlier, in November 2014, the day another man, Jihad Hijala, walked out of prison.

Hijala had been in Syria, allegedly with an Al-Qaeda affiliate, but returned to Israel and was jailed for six months.

After he was released, he returned to his hometown of Jaljulia north of Tel Aviv, where the Salahs also live. Hijala is accused of quickly setting about establishing a jihadist cell that would eventually travel to Syria.

Among those he recruited was Salah, who fell under the spell of the man three years his senior, his family said. The Salahs are Muslim but the family are not particularly devout.

“His personality changed,” said his brother Samih, who shared a bedroom with him until recently.

“He banned listening to music, and would only listen to (recordings of) the Koran.”

Salah’s uncle Rifaat accused the Israeli security agency Shin Bet of failing to monitor Hijala’s activities.

“If Israel wanted to stop him, they could have stopped him,” he said.

Government PSA: Drink Water If You’re Thirsty…


Don’t drink any water from the Animas river.

Via Washington Examiner:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has put together a webpage offering people instructions on how much water to drink, which includes the advice that people should drink to “quench your thirst throughout the day.”

The tipsheet starts by saying people should drink water instead of sugary sodas or sports drinks. But how much water should people drink?

“Let your thirst be your guide,” the tipsheet says.

“A healthy body can balance water needs throughout the day,” it added. “Drink plenty of water if you are very active, live or work in hot conditions, or are an older adult.”

Water in particular is good for people because it means fewer calories and is usually cheaper than other drinks. The department admitted that sometimes, “water just won’t do,” but said in those cases, try to cut back on other drinks, except for milk and a little fruit juice.

Obama Bans Law Enforcement From Asking Syrian Refugees Which Religion They Follow…

FBI Screen

No joke.

Via Independent Sentinel:

Obama found another way to keep us from fighting terrorism. US law enforcement who interview Syrian refugees are banned from asking questions about the person’s religious affiliations or beliefs. This came down from Obama-on-high in the form of a policy memorandum.

It has become increasingly difficult for the FBI to find out the most key information from refugees out of Political Correctness.

The ACLU is almost always behind these changes and Obama is only too glad to cooperate because he is one of them.

“These gradual but severe restrictions were coupled with a simultaneous reduction in accurate, fact-based training to address the nature of the threat we face, leaving us inadequately prepared for the challenges we face today,” a government source familiar with national security told The Daily Caller.

DHS officers probably can’t ask if they are members of al-Qaida, the Muslim Brotherhood, Boko Haram and so on. Barack Obama is and has been very supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood despite the fact that they are a terrorist group serving as the umbrella organization for most other Muslim terrorist groups. They are the PR people.

The interviewers would not be able to ask about views towards various terrorists, some operating out of mosques in the US. The Ft. Hood shooter wouldn’t have been able to be asked about religion. He sent emails to Amwar Awlaki, an American and former imam, which made it clear that the shooter was a terrorist to all but Obama. That and his shouting Allahu Akbar.

It’s how they uncovered evidence around all terrorist activities – looking at associations. Interviews no longer include any intimidation techniques and now when the FBI interviews, they can’t ask the pertinent questions.

The DHS civil rights leftists began investigating Customs and Border Protection agents because CAIR, the Council on American–Islamic Relations which is tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and specifically Hamas, complained about the questions being asked such as those concerning known affiliations with Islamic organizations.

Dumb: Al Roker Says Cabbie “Racist” After He’s Snubbed In Favor Of White Passenger, “This Happens To Folks Of Color Every Day” – Dumber: Cabbie Is A Man Of Color…


Roker should ask his good friend Barack Obama for some race baiting advice.

Via BPR:

Al Roker went ballistic after he believed a cab driver snubbed him in favor of a white passenger.

The famous weatherman said this type of thing “happens to folks of color everyday.”

Unfortunately for Roker when one jumps to conclusions one risks being left with egg on his face.

As it turned out Roker’s “racist” cabbie is a man of color.

Roker automatically assumed he was passed by because of his race but cab driver Mahabur Rahman called it a “misunderstanding.”

“I tell you honestly, I didn’t see him,” Rahman, who is from Bangladesh told the New York Daily News Monday. “Black, white, it doesn’t matter.”

“Maybe he saw me and I didn’t see him. How I refuse him?” he asked rhetorically.

Rahman said he would have definitely picked up Roker if he saw him.

“Anybody would pick him. He looks like a gentleman. That’s our business. If you ride with my car, you’re going to make the money,” he told the News.

Report: U.S. Ground Troops In Syria To Help Kurdish Forces Battling ISIS…


Wait, why are we sending in ground troops to fight a contained JV team?

Beirut (AFP) – US soldiers are in Kobane, the town in northern Syria nearly destroyed in fierce fighting with the Islamic State group, to train Kurdish forces to battle the jihadists, Kurdish sources said Thursday.

Mustapha Abdi, an activist in the town on the Turkish border, told AFP the American instructors had arrived “in recent hours”, in what is the first official deployment of US ground troops in Syria.

A source with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) said the Americans would help plan offensives against two Syrian cities held by IS — Jarablus and the jihadists’ Syrian “capital”, Raqa.

At the same time, they would have help coordinate with the Kurds and their Arab and Syriac Christian allies on the ground air strikes on IS by the US-lead coalition, the YPG source said.

Abdi said that the troops who had arrived were a “first group of instructors” who would train the Kurds.

The first call to action from the massive gathering on 10.10.15 is the nation-wide boycott of the holiday spending season beginning with Black Friday. During his Justice or Else address, Minister Farrakhan quoting Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “We have to find a way to redistribute the pain”.

We have to now withdraw our economic support, so that those who give us pain can receive some pain in return. “You’re either going to treat us right, or we’re going to withdraw from you our economic support. …We intend to boycott Christmas but not Jesus,” Minister Farrakhan said. “We choose not to spend dollars on Black Friday, Black Saturday, Black Sunday, Black Monday.  We are not going to spend our money for the rest of that year with those companies that we have traditionally spent our money on.”

Choose Gratitude

Screen Shot 2015-11-26 at 8.22.24 PM

Via Jon Gabriel:

My job requires me to follow all the awful things happening in the world; after all, that’s what makes up the news cycle. War and death and poverty and injustice (okay, and a few cat videos) fill my computer screen from the moment I wake until I go to bed. By the fourth day of the work week, it’s easy to cycle between outrage and despair.

Many on all sides succumb to this emotional low road, which is why there’s so much anger about failed politicians, terrible policies, and broken promises. Our grandparents would yell at the newspaper, our parents at the TV, and now we vent on Facebook, Twitter and You Tube, amplifying the misery. In the past few years, we’ve seen mobs shutting down freeways and burning down neighborhoods while students at even the most exclusive universities screech about the raw deal they got in life.

A couple of weeks back, shouty children at Yale, Mizzou, and Dartmouth were furious about the terrorism in Paris. Not so much at the monsters who gunned down diners and music lovers, but at the rest of us for honoring the victims. Why should the murder of 130 take the spotlight off the ill-defined “structural oppression” of Ivy League millennials?

Too often, modern America has replaced virtue with victimhood, and the nation is poorer for it. Granted, the US remains one of the wealthiest nations in the history of mankind, but we’ve trained a generation not to recognize this obvious fact. Even to mention the manifold (and nearly miraculous) blessings of American life is a form of hate speech to the campus progressive.

In a far meaner age, Cicero said that “gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” An attitude of thankfulness is a choice that is free to everyone — even those plagued with an education at an elite university. While it may be easier in the short term to whine, it makes for a downright miserable life — not only for oneself, but also for the dwindling number of people who surround the complainer.

This Thanksgiving, and in the days to follow, choose gratitude. Be thankful for the nation, for your life, for those whom you love and those who love you, flaws and all. Like a muscle, you can strengthen this virtue with regular exercise.

German Police Arrest Two At Islamic Center In Berlin Who Were Plotting ‘Significant Criminal Act Against State Security’

Screen Shot 2015-11-26 at 8.35.34 PM

How did those Amish sneak their way into the Islamic Center?

(CNN)A German special forces unit arrested two men in a Berlin raid Thursday who are accused of plotting “a significant criminal act against state security,” according to Berlin authorities.

The two men were arrested in the Britz section of the German capital after a search was conducted on an Islamic cultural center, police said.

The suspects, whose identities have not been released, are 28 and 46, according to police, and the German newspaper Der Tagesspeigel reports that one of them was Tunisian and the other Syrian.

Police said “a suspected dangerous object” found in a vehicle linked to the suspects prompted an evacuation of nearby residences.

Berlin’s attorney general is heading up the ongoing investigation.

ISIS Built Vast Network Of Tunnels Under Iraqi Town Of Sinjar, Found Littered With US-Made Weapons, Copies Of The Koran…

Tunnel ISIS

Taking a page from the Vietcong.

Via Business Insider:

Under the Iraqi town of Sinjar, Islamic State militants built a network of tunnels, complete with sleeping quarters, wired with electricity, and fortified with sandbags. There they had boxes of US-made ammunition, medicines, and copies of the Quran stashed on shelves.

The Associated Press obtained extensive video footage of the tunnels, which were uncovered by Kurdish forces that took the city in northwestern Iraq earlier this month after more than a year of Islamic State rule.

“We found between 30 and 40 tunnels inside Sinjar,” said Shamo Eado, a commander from Sinjar from the Iraqi Kurdish fighters known as peshmerga. “It was like a network inside the city.”

“Daesh dug these trenches in order to hide from airstrikes and have free movement underground as well as to store weapons and explosives,” Eado said, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State, which is also known as ISIS or ISIL. “This was their military arsenal.”

The video, shot by a freelancer touring the town with Kurdish fighters, showed two tunnels running several hundred yards, each starting and ending from houses, through holes knocked in walls or floors.

The narrow tunnels, carved in the rock apparently with jackhammers or other handheld equipment, are just tall enough for a man to stand in. Rows of sandbags line sections of the walls, electrical wires power fans and lights, and metal braces reinforce the ceilings. One section of the tunnel resembled a bunker. Dusty copies of the Quran sit above piles of blankets and pillows. Prescription drugs — painkillers and antibiotics — lie scattered along the floor.

In another section of the tunnel, the footage shows stocks of ammunition, including American-made cartridges and bomb-making tools.

The purpose of Thanksgiving was not just to eat a lot, although by now, many of us have done that. Or to watch football.

It was created to give thanks.

In 1789, George Washington became the first of many US presidents to formally proclaim a day of “public thanksgiving and prayer”:

I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted; for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

West Point Bans Cadet Pillow Fight After 30 Injured…

West Point Pillow Fight

Next rule change is safe spaces at West Point. Update to this story.

Via Stars and Stripes:

Cadet pillow fights like the bloody one that left 30 injured this summer will be banned and actions are being pursued against many of those involved, U.S. Military Academy officials said Wednesday.

First-year students, known as “plebes,” organize the annual pillow fight as a way to build camaraderie after a grueling summer of training. But the pillow fight on Aug. 20 escalated into a free-for-all with plebes being hit from behind and knocked to the ground. Injuries included a broken nose, a fractured cheek and 24 diagnosed concussions, according to a report on the pillow fight released Wednesday.

“While never officially sanctioned, it is now officially banned, and we will take appropriate action to ensure that all faculty, staff, leaders, the Corps of Cadets and everyone at West Point knows that it will not be tolerated,” West Point Superintendent Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen said in a statement.

There were reports that some cadets were injured by hard objects placed in pillow cases after photos and video of the melee circulated on social media. But the report said many injuries were caused instead by elbows and falls to the ground. One cadet was identified by military police as striking another cadet with a hard object in a pillow case. One cadet was found unconscious.

The report said upper-class cadets did not take proper control of the fight to ensure the safety of plebes. Caslen said the incident could have been prevented with better communication between cadet leadership and senior military personnel before the pillow fight.
