Iran-Finger-Amputation-ISNA-4

Via NCRI:

A high ranking Iranian cleric who is the representative of the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader in a Hormozgan province (southern Iran) has called for more inhumane punishment of hand amputations to be carried out.

Ghulam Ali Naeem Abadi, who regularly speaks at the state-organized weekly Friday Prayers sermon in the city of Bandar Abbas, said on Wednesday in city of Mashhad: “If the hands of a few of those who commit thievery in the society be cut off, they would set as examples for the others and security will be restored.”

“When the security would be restored in the society with amputating a few finger, why such punishments are not being implemented?” he asked.

Naeem Abadi who is also a member of powerful Assembly of Experts urged the authorities in the province to carry out the inhuman amputation and do not pay attention to the international criticism of the regime. “Our government is based on implementation of Islamic laws,” he said.

Defeat: Obama Won’t Fight Court Ruling Halting His Executive Amnesty

He knows he’d lose because it would be strict Constitutionalist Justice Scalia deciding if the court were to hear it

Via Breitbart.com:

The Obama administration revealed today that it will not take the fight over executive immigration amnesty to the Supreme Court, essentially admitting defeat in its fight to lift a court-ordered stay placed by a Texas judge.

Obama’s executive actions still have to be settled in court, but yesterday’s decision prevented the administration from moving forward in its efforts to sign up illegal immigrants for the amnesty programs.

“The department believes the best way to achieve this goal is to focus on the ongoing appeal on the merits of the preliminary injunction itself,” said Patrick Rodenbush, a spokesman for the Justice Department to the New York Times. “Although the department continues to disagree with the Fifth Circuit’s refusal to stay the district court’s preliminary injunction, the department has determined that it will not seek a stay from the Supreme Court.”

Global Warming Alert: Arapahoe Basin In Colorado Extends Ski Season To At Least June 14 After May Snow Storms…

Via Denver Post

Ski season just got a little bit longer.

Arapahoe Basin announced on Wednesday that it will stay open until at least June 14 after nearly 50 inches of snow have fallen at the ski area this month.

The area initially planned to close on June 7 and is one of only three ski areas still open in North America and the only resort still open in Colorado.

Regular ski area operations will continue through June 7 and the resort will close from June 8 to 11 before reopening for the weekend on June 12.

Conditions will dictate which terrain will remain open, A-Basin says.

“With our snowy and cool spring weather, the skiing conditions are better than we have seen for years at this time in May,” Alan Henceroth, the area’s chief operating officer, said in a statement. “We will be re-opening for at least one more long weekend.”

Last season, the resort closed June 22.

The latest A-Basin has ever stayed open was August 10 in 1995.

Number Of Americans Caught Trying To Join ISIS This Year Hits 40…

ISIS-march

And we are just half way through 2015.

Via PJM:

The arrest of two southern California men this week who were planning to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State brings the number of U.S.-based individuals involved in international terror-related cases this year to 40.

This number highlights the metastasizing Islamic terror threat in the American homeland. At the current pace, by the end of June — halfway through 2015 — the number of cases will exceed the number from the past two years combined.

Recent evidence gives cause for concern. As I noted here at PJ Media, FBI Director Comey downplayed the number of Americans who had traveled to Syria to fight with ISIS and other terror groups before the midterm elections. He stated on 60 Minutes that “roughly a dozen” were fighting in Syria. But in February, senior officials corrected that number. They admitted that 180 had traveled to Syria. They also admitted that 40 had returned to the U.S. and posed a potential threat. FBI Director Comey then said they were investigating ISIS suspects in all 50 states.

Underscoring the failure to alert the public regarding the threat, concerned citizens have not been able to find a list of the 40 individuals arrested this year. Until now, a public list simply didn’t exist.

Judge Hears Oral Arguments On Granting Chimpanzees Human Rights

CGCjZiyUoAAhX04

Don’t get your hopes up, moonbats. Then again, this is a NYC judge.

BuzzFeed:

A New York City judge heard arguments over the rights of two chimpanzees, Hercules and Leo, that animal rights advocates hope to free from Stony Brook University.

Last month Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jaffe granted a hearing on the chimpanzees’ habeas corpus petition, leaving Stony Brook University to defend keeping them in captivity. Habeas corpus is a legal petition that detainees use to seek relief from unlawful imprisonment, and by granting habeas corpus to chimps, Jaffe endorsed the idea that they deserve the rights of human beings.

The chimpanzees are kept at the Long Island university, which is part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system, where they are used in locomotion studies.

Steven Wise, a lawyer for the Nonhuman Rights Project argued on Wednesday that chimpanzees are “autonomous and self-determining beings,” that they have “personhood” rights.

“They are the kind of beings who can remember the past and plan for the future,” Wise said in court as to why detaining the animals was wrong. “The chimpanzees are in prison, being exploited by Stony Brook, and they don’t even know why they are there. We only do that for our worst criminals around us.”

Wise later argued that Hercules and Leo are “essentially in solitary confinement, at the mercy of their keepers.”

Russia Masses Heavy Firepower On Border With Ukraine

Someone page the golf course for Obama.

Via Reuters:

Russia’s army is massing troops and hundreds of pieces of weaponry including mobile rocket launchers, tanks and artillery at a makeshift base near the border with Ukraine, a Reuters reporter saw this week.

Many of the vehicles have number plates and identifying marks removed while many of the servicemen had taken insignia off their fatigues. As such, they match the appearance of some of the forces spotted in eastern Ukraine, which Kiev and its Western allies allege are covert Russian detachments.

The scene at the base on the Kuzminsky firing range, around 50 km (30 miles) from the border, offers some of the clearest evidence to date of what appeared to be a concerted Russian military build-up in the area.

Earlier this month, NATO military commander General Philip Breedlove said he believed the separatists were taking advantage of a ceasefire that came into force in February to re-arm and prepare for a new offensive. However, he gave no specifics.

Even Her Hair Is Fake: Hillary, “I’ve Been Coloring My Hair For Years”

Bernie Sanders is grateful for Hillary, someone who makes him look younger.

Via The Hill:

Hillary Clinton is making a confession, saying, “I’ve been coloring my hair for years.” “So, you’re not going to see me turn white in the White House,” the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate quipped to laughs from a crowd gathered at the South Carolina Democratic Women’s Council on Wednesday. “Just pull up the images in your head: All our presidents come into office looking so vigorous,” Clinton, 67, said. “Think about what they look like on Inauguration Day. And then we watch them — they grow grayer and grayer. And by the time they leave, they are as white as the building they live in.” Clinton, who has sported blond locks for most of her life in the public eye, said with a smile as she waved a finger in the air, “Now let me tell you, I’m aware I might not be the youngest candidate in this race, but I have one big advantage: I’ve been coloring my hair for years.”

Feds Drop $52,293 To Reduce Discrimination Against LGBT Schizophrenics By Convenience Store Clerks…

No cost is too high to end the scourge of convenience store clerks who refuse to celebrate diversity.

Via CNS News:

The National Institutes of Health through its National Institute of Mental Health has awarded $52,293 in taxpayer funding to the Toronto-based Centre for Addiction and Mental Health to study how to reduce discrimination of lesbian, gay and transgender people with schizophrenia by members of the community they are in frequent contact with, like the “convenience store clerk.”

“Inquiry will extend from individuals with schizophrenia to include family members and service providers of participants as well as community members with whom they are in frequent contact (e.g., convenience store clerk),” the grant, titled “Defining Community for LGBT People with Schizophrenia,” stated.

“Sexual and gender minority individuals with severe mental illness (SMI) are amongst the most marginalized individuals in North American society,” the grant stated. “They face multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination that compound the effects of having a major mental illness, hampering recovery and frustrating efforts to meaningfully participate in our communities.”

“Our work will lay the groundwork for our developing a better understanding about how we can reduce that discrimination in community contexts and develop interventions to facilitate community participation among sexual and gender minority individuals with severe mental illness,” it stated.

Report: “Working Class Warrior” Elizabeth Warren Bought Foreclosed Homes To Flip And Turn A Quick Profit…

Elizabeth Warren for Fox News First

No way, not Liz Warren! ….

Via NRO:

Nearly two years after Veo Vessels died, her daughter, 70-year-old Mary Frances Hickman, decided to sell the home her mother had left to her. A sprawling brick house in Oklahoma City’s historic Highland Park neighborhood, it was built in 1924, just a year after Mary’s birth. Decades later, one of Vessels’ great-grandchildren fondly recalls the wood and tile floors, the fish pond, the butler’s quarters, and the multi-car garage where children played house.

Decades later, one of Vessels’ great-grandchildren fondly recalls the wood and tile floors, the fish pond, the butler’s quarters, and the multi-car garage where children played house.

“It was really, really nice,” says Hickman’s granddaughter, Andrea Martin. That’s part of the reason she’s so surprised her grandmother sold the home in 1993 for a mere $30,000. Despite a debilitating stroke, Martin says Hickman remained sharp, and she had always been business-savvy. As an Avon saleswoman, she had at times ranked among the top ten in the country. “So I don’t know why,” Martin says. “Maybe she just wanted out from underneath it, but to sell it for such a low number — I don’t know. Maybe she got bad advice, maybe she was just tired.”

The home’s new owner: Elizabeth Warren, today a Massachusetts senator who has built a political career on denouncing the sort of banking titans and financial sophisticates who make a buck off the little guy. Five months after purchasing Veo Vessels’ old home, Warren flipped the property, selling it for $115,000 more than she’d paid, according to Oklahoma County Property Assessor records.

Sick: Abortion Worker “Proud” Of Job Where “Tiny Arms and Legs” Float In “Baking Pans”…

babyhand

You’ve got to be disturbed to a whole other level to be proud of something like this.

Via Newsbusters:

If you want to learn how horrendous abortion is, go straight to the source: abortion clinic workers with a media platform.

In a May 24 story for Salon, Florida-based writer Amy Beeman wrote that “Working at an abortion clinic challenged my pro-choice views — and confirmed them.” In her piece, she wrote about her former job at a “women’s clinic” where she first saw “tiny arms and legs floating” in a pan. As time passed, she embraced her work’s mission of “removing unwanted growth” to learn the “bonds between all women” and discover that “grace can be found in the unlikeliest of places.”

During the first abortion Beeman witnessed, on a “young, petite blond,” Beeman’s trainer, an assistant, and the doctor “chatted” about “weekend plans, “The girl was quiet and kept her wide eyes fixed on the ceiling,” Beeman observed. “Before long the girl began crying out in pain as he did his work between her legs.”

Unabashed, Beeman continued her account of the “procedure” that “pulls the embryo from the uterus.”

“She was moving around a bit as if her body was rejecting the pain and discomfort and the doctor and assistant told her in serious tones that she needed to be still,” she said of the woman. With the vacuum turned on, “[t]he sucking noises during the aspiration sounded much like when they suck your spit at the dentist.”

“The girl lay still, sobbing softly,” she finished. Afterwards, the assistant, Beeman said, “made a point to show me the tiny arms and legs floating in the glass baking pan.”

Intrusive EPA Grants Itself Power To Regulate Ponds, Ditches, And Puddles…

Gina McCarthy

Who at the EPA was like, “Hey guys! Let’s grant ourselves power to regulate ponds…and also ditches and puddles!!” Who thinks of these things?

Via Daily Caller:

The EPA has released its Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule critics say would allow the agency to regulate waterways previously not under federal jurisdiction, including puddles, ditches and isolated wetlands.

Republicans, farmers and industrial groups have called the rule an EPA “power grab” because it extends the agency’s powers to new heights. Environmentalists and the Obama administration, however, argue the WOTUS rule is necessary for protecting water quality.

No matter how you spin it, the EPA’s WOTUS rule does expand the agency’s authority, and creates new avenues for environmental groups to sue projects they want to stop from moving forward.

“The administration’s decree to unilaterally expand federal authority is a raw and tyrannical power grab that will crush jobs,” House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement.

“Despite their assurances, it appears that EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have failed to keep their promises to Congress and the American people,” echoed Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe. “In fact, instead of fixing the overreach in the proposed rule, remarkably, EPA has made it even broader.”

Farmers and industry groups worry the new WOTUS rule will expand EPA reach over isolated wetlands, ponds and ditches that have a “significant nexus” to navigable waters — a vague standard employed by the EPA to regulate bodies of water.

Retired Gen. McChrystal: Yeah, We Knew Right Away Bergdahl “Walked Off Base Intentionally”…

Yet we all know how this turned out…

Via MRCTV:

Despite what Americans were told when U.S. hostage Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released May 31st of last year, Bergdahl was known to be a deserter at the time the deal was announced. Retired General Stanley McChrystal who commanded our troops in Afghanistan at the time Bergdahl went AWOL, revealed this during an interview with Fox News on Tuesday:

“I had been in command about a month or so when he left in 2009. My initial understanding based upon the reporting I got is that he had walked off intentionally. I do not know if he walked off to be picked up by the Taliban or just walked off. We made a massive effort to try to get him back for a couple reasons. One is he was one of our soldiers, its was the right thing to do. Second we didn’t want him to get taken by the Taliban and put in Pakistan. I think he was a confused young man which was my assumption at the time, and that will probably turn out to be the judgment of time. But it became this focus of a propaganda effort on the part of those who held him, and it became powerful against the United States and put us in a difficult position.”

At the time of the trade of Bergdahl for five senior Taliban terrorists, President Obama celebrated Bergdahl’s return at a gala ceremony in the White House Rose Garden. Soon afterwards, members of the former hostage’s platoon objected to the pomp and circumstance, saying that Bergdahl was a deserter:

Evan Buetow and Cody Full, two U.S. Army soldiers who served with Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in Mest Malak, Afghanistan, said they know their disgraced former fellow mate deserted because they “were there” at the time.

“On June 30, 2009, in Mest Malak, Afghanistan, Bowe Bergdahl left his unit and deserted the U.S. Army,” the two wrote in a USA Today op-ed. “We know he deserted because we were there when he did it.”

Despite their eyewitness account, the Obama Administration sent National Security Adviser Susan Rice on to ABC’s “This Week” to refute the charges. Rice praised Bergdahl saying, “He served the United States with honor and distinction.”
