Egyptian Resorts Enforcing Hijab-Free Zones…

Hijab

Does Code Pink have a branch office in Egypt?

Via Al Arabiya

Many Egyptian women say they are facing a difficult summer season as Hijab-free zones seem to have soared in popularity, as more restaurants and high-end resorts enforce a de-facto ban on wearing headscarves.

Social media users in Egypt flocked to Facebook and Twitter over the past week to condemn the apparent decision by some venues to deny veiled women entry.

Many deemed the ban as “discriminatory” against practicing Muslim women in Egypt – a country in which 90 percent of its 80-million population are Muslim.

The ban is not completely new, it was reportedly common at resorts and restaurants frequented by foreigners, in cities such as Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada.

Recent reports suggest that several swimming pools and restaurants at five-star resorts lining the Egyptian north coast are also restricting the entry of veiled women to their services.

‘Violation of freedom’

Several veiled women who were rejected at the door spoke to Al Arabiya News and described the act as a ‘violation of freedom.’

Reem, a 28-year-old woman who wears the Hijab, said she was turned away at the doors of two different beaches at upscale north coast resorts for being veiled, she told Al Arabiya News.

“I was with my husband when I was told I cannot come in because I’m veiled.

“The outing was quickly cut short when the security at the door told me guests complain about the appearance of veiled women,” she added. Reem said such door-selection policies are never written.

Sally Nashaat, a 26-year-old mother of two girls, said she was also not allowed to enter a beach club house at a five-star north coast resort for being veiled.

Among a group of friends, she was told: “Everyone can enter, except her.

“It feels degrading, we are in our own country and we are not happy.

“I was about to cry,” Nashaat said, “no one has the right to deprive me of entering. This never happened to me anywhere else, even in the United States.

Do you strongly agree, somewhat agree, somewhat disagree, or strongly disagree with the Republicans who say Congress should vote immediately vote to end all government funding for Planned Parenthood, including for services Planned Parenthood provides, such as cancer screenings and family planning?

HHS Secretary Defends Planned Parenthood’s Federal Funding After Videos Show Them Selling Aborted Babies… Admits She Has NOT Seen The Videos…

Sylvia Burwell

Ignorant, and proud of it.

Via The Hill:

Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell on Tuesday defended federal funding for Planned Parenthood as a third undercover video was released on the organization’s use of fetal tissue.

“What I think is important is that our HHS funding is focused on issues of preventative care for women, things like mammograms,” Burwell told the House Education and Workforce Committee.

“We do not fund abortion,” she said, under the longstanding Hyde Amendment.

Burwell declined to directly answer a question on her personal views about fetal tissue research. She said she has not seen the Planned Parenthood videos that have stoked controversy, but has read about them.

“This is an important issue that people have passion deeply on both sides of the issue,” she said.

Colorado Gender Confused “Woman” Challenges Aetna’s Denial Of Coverage For Surgery…

TG CO

Quickly, someone call Team Diversity!

Via Denver Post

A Colorado transgender woman’s insurance company has denied her coverage for gender reassignment surgery she says is medically necessary and should be ensured by state law and policy.

Ashlyn Trider, 33, said Aetna Life Insurance Company’s refusal to pay for gender reassignment surgery prescribed by her doctor violates Colorado law. The Transgender Legal Defense Fund & Education Fund has demanded Aetna reverse its decision.

“This is a medical condition. I was born with it,” Trider said. “It’s medically necessary surgery. My doctor has strongly urged this procedure get done. It’s pretty straightforward.”

The denial of coverage violates Colorado law, said TLDEF attorney Ethan Rice. State law and Division of Insurance 2013 guidelines require companies to cover medically necessary care for transgender policyholders on the same terms as all other policyholders.

“It’s pretty clear guidance,” Rice said. “The crux here is that a lot of insurance companies are still excluding coverage. Governments are taking action to end discrimination, but the transgender community still struggles to get the care (it) needs.”

Colorado is one of 10 states, along with the District of Columbia, barring health insurance discrimination against transgender people, Rice said.

A Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies’s bulletin B-B.49 states health insurers cannot deny coverage of treatments for transgender policyholders if the same treatments are covered for other policyholders.

Aetna officials say they can’t discuss any health information about members without signed waivers, but the denial letter sent to Trider says her “plan has a specific exclusion for the requested service or treatment.”

Carly Fiorina’s Speech At The Reagan Library, “I See A World In Dire Need Of American Leadership”

Smart, focused, Fiorina isn’t getting the attention she deserves in a crowded field. But many were taken by this speech and perhaps it gets her some more looks.

Via Townhall:

Her most recent stop was the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

There she delivered what can only be described as a landmark speech. Lasting almost thirty minutes, she focused exclusively on foreign policy issues. She repeatedly assailed the “political class” for their incompetence and pusillanimity — and called out the spinelessness of the current administration for bargaining with our enemies and alienating our friends. She also offered warnings for America and optimism.

“On my first day in the Oval Office I will make two phone calls. The first will be to my friend Bibi Netanyahu to reassure him that the United States of America will always stand with the state of Israel. My second phone call will be to the Supreme Leader of Iran. Realistically, he might not take my phone call. He will get the message. And the message is this: [No] deal. Unless and until you are prepared to open every military facility and every nuclear facility to full and unfettered ‘anytime, anywhere’ inspections, we will make it as difficult as possible for you to move money around the global financial system.”

University Of New Hampshire ‘Bias-Free Language’ Guide Deems Word ‘American’ Problematic

Screen Shot 2015-07-28 at 8.50.00 PM

Do not say anything at all that may be deemed bad by the Left…

Via Campus Reform:

“American,” “illegal alien,” “foreigners,” “mothering,” and “fathering” are just a handful of words deemed “problematic” by the University of New Hampshire’s Bias-Free Language Guide.

According to the university’s website, the guide “is meant to invite inclusive excellence in [the] campus community.”

Terms also considered problematic include: “elders,” “senior citizen,” “overweight,” “speech impediment,” “dumb,” “sexual preference,” “manpower,” “freshmen,” “mailman,” and “chairman,” in addition to many others.

The guide defines words such as “homosexual” as “problematic,” offering “Same Gender Loving” as a more inclusive substitute. Similarly, a lack of gender-neutral bathrooms is, according to the university, “ciscentrism.”

The university defines “ciscentrism” as “[a] pervasive and institutionalized system that places transgender people in the ‘other’ category and treats their needs and identities as less important than those of cisgender people.”

“Ciscentrism,” according to the university, “includes the lack of gender-neutral restrooms, locker rooms, and residences.”

Saying “American” to reference Americans is also problematic. The guide encourages the use of the more inclusive substitutes “U.S. citizen” or “Resident of the U.S.”

Rolling Stone Pushes False ‘Rape Culture’ Allegation Against Trump: “Perhaps Allegations Will Help America Accept Truth About Sexual Assault”

So doesn’t matter if the allegations were during a divorce proceedings, doesn’t matter that the ‘victim’ said she never was alleging actual rape. Doesn’t matter if she actually is endorsing Trump for President, which of course, Rolling Stone leaves out of their story. But false allegations will ‘help America accept the truth about sexual assault?

Huff Po: America Needs Fed Legislation To Protect Black People From Police

Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 10.07.38 PM

They actually claim that this is needed because ‘most Americans prefer lighter skin”, and skip that laws already cover civil rights infractions against people.

Via Huff Po:

With the dash-cam video of Sandra Bland being forcibly removed out of her car, simply because she refused to put out a cigarette, some context is needed in regards to similar tragedies spanning from Rodney King and Trayvon Martin to Eric Garner and John Crawford. While police brutality affects people of all races and backgrounds in the U.S., it’s important to note that black citizens face a unique experience within America’s criminal justice system, just as they’ve faced a unique state of affairs for centuries in the United States.

As Harvard professor Jennfer L. Hochschild points out in The Skin Color Paradox and The American Racial Order, “racial minorities with dark skin in the United States have been disproportionately disadvantaged for centuries” and “with some exceptions, most Americans prefer lighter to darker skin aesthetically, normatively, and culturally.”

Report: Taxpayers Shell Out $6 Million To Fly Obama To Africa

I’m thinking that doesn’t even include the congress people that he flew over there as well, to try to sweat them on the Iran Deal.

How much was spent on them?

Via Washington Times:

President Obama’s five-day trip to Africa cost taxpayers more than $5 million in flight time alone for Air Force One, according to a study released Tuesday.

The National Taxpayers Union said Mr. Obama is spending about 29 hours of flight time on the trip that began Thursday, taking him to Kenya and Ethiopia. Operating Air Force One costs $206,337 per flight hour, for a total of $5,983,773.

The total cost of the trip will easily reach into tens of millions of dollars. In the summer of 2013, Mr. Obama took his family on a weeklong trip to sub-Saharan Africa that was estimated to cost taxpayers between $60 million and $100 million.

Juvenile Bernie Sanders Protesters Disrupt Scott Walker Philly Cheesesteak Stop With Lewd Signs

This is the level of intelligence of the socialist.

Via Business Insider:

Presidential candidate and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) was heckled while participating in the time-honored tradition of grabbing a cheesesteak in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Photos of the event showed at least two protesters holding up rather lewd signs while Walker schmoozed at Geno’s Steaks, a cheesesteak joint famous for expecting its customers to order in English.

“SCOTT WALKER SNIFFS OWN POO,” read one sign, for example.

The Associated Press reported that a campaign aide stood on a bench and tried to block the signs.

It wasn’t clear why the protesters did not like Walker. However, one video showed a heckler shouting the name of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), a Democratic presidential candidate.

“You suck!” the man yelled at Walker.

Companies That Planned Parenthood Claimed Were Sponsors Say They Never Gave Them Money

More fraud by Planned Parenthood?

Via Fox News:

Planned Parenthood once boasted a list of sponsors that read like a who’s who of the Fortune 100, but now some of the biggest companies say they never gave money to the embattled organization.

Coca-Cola, Ford and Xerox are all among the companies listed in a roster of corporate sponsors claimed by Planned Parenthood, but representatives for the companies said they either never donated to the organization or had not in years. Planned Parenthood, which is now reeling from the release of two undercover videos in which top officials alluded to selling fetus parts, had published the company names on the website of its Washington, DC, chapter. The list was part of an appeal to employees who the site said could double their donations with the help of their employers.

Waitress Fired For Calling Black Couple ‘Black Couple’ On Receipt

Bad idea in general to describe customers on a receipt, as it’s bound to get you in trouble. But so PC that referring to a black couple as a black couple gets you fired?

Via WSBTV:

MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. — A waitress in Maryland Heights, Missouri, is out of a job after she reportedly labeled two of her customers as “black couple” on a restaurant receipt.

According to KTVI, Kimberli Wilson and a companion were at Patrick’s Westport Grill on July 18 when she saw the words at the top of the bill.
“I was frustrated,” Wilson told KTVI. “I was angry. I was thinking, ‘Really? Are we still doing this in 2015?'”

The waitress, who was fired, said she used the label to help remember her table numbers. But Wilson said the waitress should have chosen a different label.

“She could have said first table, table at front door, man with coral shirt,” Wilson told KTVI. “There are so many other options that she could have chosen other than that. That’s unacceptable.”

Obama Preparing To Lift Economic Sanctions On Ayatollah Khamenei’s $95 Billion Empire

One-percenter

Via Free Beacon:

The Obama administration is gearing up to lift economic sanctions on a nearly $100 billion network of organizations belonging to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, according to the parameters of the recent Iranian nuclear deal.

On the day the nuclear deal is implemented, the United States will lift sanctions on Khamenei’s financial empire, which comprises a large network of foundations and companies that personally enrich the Islamic Republic’s leader.

The removal of these sanctions will likely “pump tens of billions of dollars into the supreme leader’s personal coffers, helping him secure his grip on the Iranian people, and bolstering Iran’s ability to promote its agenda abroad,” according to a recent analysis from the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
