Drexel University: FBI Told Us There Is A Threat Of Violence To Universities In The Philadelphia Area


Religion of peace probably involved.

Via Drexel:

The FBI has notified all Philadelphia area colleges and universities about a recent social media posting threating violence at a Philadelphia area college or university on Monday, October 5. Since the shooting last week at a community college in Oregon, the FBI has seen similar social media postings throughout the country.

Although the FBI has assured us there is no specific threat to a particular college or university, we are taking this very seriously and are taking extra precautions to protect the Drexel community.

Failed Common Core Supporting NY Education Commissioner Is The New Secretary Of Education…


16 long months to go.

Via Independent Sentinel:

John King Jr. was a miserable failure as Commissioner of Education in New York. He waylaid his failure in New York into the assistant’s job in the US Department of Education. He will be the new Secretary of Education.

King came to New York as an extremely well-educated egghead with little educational experience and none in public schools. He implemented Common Core in a bizarre manner and blamed the horrendous results on New York’s “ignorant” children. Even though New York’s standards were the highest in the nation, he claimed the students were not used to high standards.

He tied teacher evaluations to the standardized testing, exams which weren’t even properly evaluating children. Teacher evaluations were in some cases based on other teachers’ student scores. Tech, art, music teachers are still being evaluated by language arts or math student scores because there aren’t any exams for them.

When New York school districts began administering Common Core-aligned standardized tests, there were dramatic drops in scores when the results were released in August. Not even one-third of students in third through eighth grade met or exceeded the standards in math or English.

King said then the sharp drop in scores was a result of the rigor of the new standards and that the decline was expected.

“These proficiency scores do not reflect a drop in performance, but rather a raising of standards to reflect college and career readiness in the 21st century,” King said when the scores were released. “I understand theses scores are sobering for parents, teachers, and principals. It’s frustrating to see our children struggle. But we can’t allow ourselves to be paralyzed by the frustration; we must be energized by this opportunity.”

Oregon Shooting Survivor Rejects Gun Control: “Tougher Restrictions Will Not Stop Mass Killings”

Oregon police line

Breaking from the narrative and using common sense.

Via Sky News:

A survivor of the Oregon college shooting has told Sky News she believes new gun control measures will not end America’s epidemic of mass killings, shortly after the victims were named.

Shelby Wambolt managed to escape from Roseburg’s Umpqua Community College when the shooting began in a neighbouring classroom.

She says she later discovered that one of those who died was a close friend.[…]

But Ms Wambolt said calls by President Obama for tighter regulations on gun ownership were misguided.

She said: “I know Obama got on the air and talked about gun control and I really don’t believe gun control is the problem.”

Hillary Unable To Distinguish Herself From Obama Or Name One Difference

Screen Shot 2015-10-04 at 12.54.59 PM

Polls show most want someone other than Obama and his policies. So Republicans should be tying her to Obama, as well as mentioning her own issues.

Via Daily Caller:

Appearing on Al Sharpton’s new Sunday morning MSNBC show, Hillary Clinton was unable to name one difference she has with President Barack Obama.

Sharpton asked Clinton “What would distinguish a Hillary Clinton presidency, if elected, from a Barack Obama presidency?”

Clinton listed her view of the history of the economy under President Obama, but failed to list one difference between the two.

Calling for an increase in the minimum wage and “equal pay,” Clinton said she wants to “incentivize more profit sharing” from companies.

“We have a very robust agenda that builds on top of, layers on top of, progress that we have made under President Obama,” she said. “And the worst thing that could happen to our country, in my opinion, is for the Republicans to rip away that progress and to do a big u-turn back to trickle-down economics.”

“To slam the door in the face of hard working people. Whether it’s working women, or minorities of any sort, or the LGBT community. To basically begin to marginalize and dismiss the contributions of so many of our fellow Americans.”

Killer In Oregon Took The Self Inflicted Taxpayer Relief Shot…

Oregon shooting

Shooting didn’t end until he was confronted by others armed.

Via Arkansas Online:

Christopher Harper-Mercer killed himself after he shot nine people to death and wounded nine others during an attack at Umpqua Community College, officials said Saturday.

Officials had originally said the gunman died during an exchange of gunfire with police.

Two days after the attack on the college, among the deadliest mass shootings at a school in two decades, Roseburg appeared more focused on mourning the nine killed and praying for the recovery of the wounded in the classroom rampage than on details about the shooter.

The shooter spared one student and gave the “lucky one” something to deliver to authorities, according to the mother of a student who witnessed the rampage.

Authorities have not disclosed whether they have an envelope or package from Harper-Mercer. However, a law enforcement official said Saturday that a manifesto of several pages had been recovered.

Bonnie Schaan, the mother of Cheyeanne Fitzgerald, 16, said she was told by her daughter that the gunman gave someone an envelope and told him to go to a corner of the classroom.

Harper-Mercer said the person “was going to be the lucky one,” Schaan told reporters outside a hospital where her daughter, wounded in the attack, underwent surgery in which a kidney was removed.

Janet Willis said her granddaughter, Anastasia Boylan, was wounded in the attack Thursday and pretended to be dead as Harper-Mercer kept firing, killing eight students and a teacher.

Willis said she visited her 18-year-old granddaughter in a hospital in Eugene, where the sobbing Boylan told her: “‘Grandma, he killed my teacher! … I saw it!'”

Boylan also said the shooter told one student in the writing class to stand in a corner, handed him a package and told him to deliver it to authorities, Willis said.

The law enforcement official who disclosed the existence of the manifesto did not reveal its contents but described it as an effort to leave a message.

The official is familiar with the investigation but was not authorized to disclose information and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Sydney Teen Gunman Was At Mosque Talk By Extremist Group Right Before Killing

The group had a ‘youth project’, reaching out to kids as young as six, to preach support for the Caliphate, according to the report.

Via Breitbart:

A teen gunman who shot and killed a NSW Police Service employee in western Sydney on Friday acted after he heard a lecture by the extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, a local news network has reported. However, the group has downplayed the claim as “speculation”.

Seven News said Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar was at a talk given by Hizb ut-Tahrir at nearby Parramatta Mosque just hours before he donned a black robe and killed finance worker Curtis Cheng outside NSW Police headquarters in Parramatta.

It has also emerged that the shooter’s sister flew out of Australia on a flight bound for the Middle East 24-hours before the terror attack.

Hillary Throws Tree Hugging Moonbats Under The Scooby Van; Hires A Former Monsanto Lobbyist And Political Fixer To Run Her ‘Ready For Hillary’ 2016 Campaign…

U.S. Secretary of State Clinton listens to the House Foreign Affairs Committee in Washington

Hillary reached out to an old white guy. Diversity much?

Via The Inquisitr:

When it comes to politics, it generally seems more liberal parties are in favor of the Green Community. Just with political parties that swing more left alone, they are in support of clean energy technologies such as wind and solar, support the expansion and assimilation of hybrid or clean-energy vehicles, cutting down on carbon emissions through taxing, and even furthering research to reverse human-assisted climate change (which they now use because “Global Warming” was a horrible term to use).

Despite such support liberals have for green community, there is one major cause they seem to dodge. That is support for organic growing, a blanket term that includes numerous other endeavors such as growing personal gardens, supporting farms that are organic only, and labeling of GMOs. For example, a bill for mandatory labeling of GMOs in food products has been introduced numerous times in Congress, especially this year. However, they always seem to be shut down every single time. Back in 2013, it was the Senate that stopped it. This year, the House of Representatives were the culprits. And the ironic thing about this year’s GMO labeling bill was the fact it was authored by Mike Pompeo of the Republican Party. And to add insult to injury for the Green Community, Congress instead passed a bill that was anti-GMO labeling.

The unfortunate detail about the government’s opposition against organically grown and support of GMOs isn’t a belief exclusive to the members of one party, but both. As a matter of fact, the most well-known politician in support of GMOs is a Democrat, which is again an irony given the Democratic Party’s stance in the Green Community. That politician is Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton’s opposition against organic growing is well-known in Green Community circles because of her association with Monsanto and GMOs. Back in 2014, Clinton made a public appearance at the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) convention in San Diego, California. According to Natural Society, Clinton announced her support of GMOs and the use of chemicals like glyphosate, the main chemical in Monsanto’s Roundup Ready which was found to be cancer-causing by the World Health Organization (WHO).[…]

For starters, Jerry Crawford isn’t just a lobbyist for GMO support but a past employee or partner for companies and organizations that support them too. He was a corporate representative for Kraft and Altria (parent company of Philip Morris USA). He served as a lawyer for Jack DeCoster, the man known for supplying eggs that led to a salmonella outbreak. Yet, his most prominent client was Monsanto.

Bolton: John Kerry ‘Should Resign’ After Iran Deal…


Kerry is waiting for Hillary to fail so he can run in 2020.

Via Washington Examiner:

Former ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton has made no secret of his disdain for the Iran nuclear deal, but now he’s calling for heads to roll.

In an address to the Young America’s Foundation’s Midwest Freedom Conference, Bolton called for the resignation of Secretary of State John Kerry on the heels of the nuclear agreement with the Iranians, which was agreed to in July.

“My recommendation is for Secretary Kerry to resign,” Bolton told a questioner who asked how the U.S. can remedy the deal with Iran. “The best thing we can hope for is the world goes to sleep for 16 months because it’s not going to get any better. The ground has already shifted under our feet dramatically. It will shift further until the next president is sworn in.”

The former ambassador to the United Nations told the crowd that there are only two potential outcomes in Iran, as there have been for most of President Obama’s term in office — Iran gets nuclear weapons or someone takes preemptive military action in the region.

Disgraceful: CNN Has Father Of Oregon Killer On To Rant Against Guns

Trust CNN to try to use even the killer’s father to push their anti-gun agenda. Rather than blame his son, the father, Ian Mercer, says, “That’s what guns are. The killers. It’s as simple as that. It’s black and white.”

Here’s a problem with the father’s story, he says he never knew the son had guns and that he communicated with his son regularly. But the shooter, Chris Harper-Mercer, and his mother, Laurel, went shooting regularly, according to neighbors. She also had multiple guns, according to posts she made on social media.
Screen Shot 2015-10-04 at 10.35.39 AM

So how can the father honestly assert he had no knowledge of that now? He did not live with the son, so perhaps they never told him, but given it was a regular practice, it would seem it’s more dad’s effort to disavow all knowledge and blame the guns, not his son.

Scientifically Challenged Global Warming Moonbats: Dozens Of Deaths Likely From VW Pollution Dodge…


Ms. Jones “Sorry your life partner died from excessive VW exhaust fumes.”

Via Charlotte Observer:

Volkswagen’s pollution-control chicanery has not just been victimless tinkering, killing between five and 20 people in the United States annually in recent years, according to an Associated Press statistical and computer analysis.

The software that the company admitted using to get around government emissions limits allowed VWs to spew enough pollution to cause somewhere between 16 and 94 deaths over seven years, with the annual count increasing more recently as more of the diesels were on the road. The total cost has been well over $100 million.

That’s just in the United States. It’s likely far deadlier and costlier in Europe, where more VW diesels were sold, engineers said. Scientists and experts said the death toll in Europe could be as high as hundreds each year, though they caution that it is hard to take American health and air quality computer models and translate them to a more densely populated Europe.

“Statistically, we can’t point out who died because of this policy, but some people have died or likely died as a result of this,” said Carnegie Mellon environmental engineer professor Peter Adams. He calculates the cost of air pollution with a sophisticated computer model that he and the AP used in its analysis.

Computer software allowed VW diesel cars to spew between 10 to 40 times more nitrogen oxides (NOx) than allowed by regulation, making this “clearly a concern for air quality and public health,” said Janet McCabe, acting air quality chief for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Nitrogen oxides mostly form smog — that murky, dirty air that makes it hard to see and for some people to breathe — but also amplify a deadlier, larger problem: tiny particles of soot. Numerous medical studies show those tiny particles cause about 50,000 deaths a year in the United States, mostly from heart problems.

Nitrogen oxides can travel hundreds of miles, so pollution spewed in Pittsburgh can be felt on the East Coast, Adams said.

Experts calculate how much pollution costs society by looking at the value of lost lives. In this case, Adams and other said the lost lives — valued at $8.6 million apiece — overwhelm other costs such as lost work days or hospital costs. The overall annual cost of the extra pollutants from the VW diesels ranged from $40 million to $170 million, environmental engineering professors calculated.

Moonbat Protesters Rally Against Guns On Campus Near University Of Central Florida…


No guns on campus didn’t work in Oregon. Four possibilities in ending a campus shooting, the perp runs out of ammo, police take him into custody, the police take him out or he takes the self inflicted taxpayer relief shot.

Via Central Florida Future:

“Live by the Gun, Die by the Gun.” “No Guns on Campus.” “Zero Guns = Zero Gun Deaths.” “Guns Ruin Lives.”

These words were seen on signs held at the corner of University Boulevard and Alafaya Trail at 5 p.m. Friday during a “No Open Carry” rally.

Diane Rambo, the organizer of the rally, sent emails Thursday to spread awareness of the protest near UCF.

“I organized this, calling our friends who have been touched by so many horrible events on college campuses,” Diane said in an email. “Our son graduated from UCF. Our neighbors go to UCF. It is our college, our people.

“We do not need to create opportunities for terrible events. We want a peaceful campus for all.”

Dexter Rambo, Diane’s husband and co-organizer of the rally, said the main goal was to protest against the possible passing of the Florida bill in the legislature that aims to arm people with guns on campus.

“We don’t want the bill passed because we don’t want the same sort of thing to happen here that happened in Oregon,” Dexter said.

People driving by the small rally honked in approval as Dexter held a sign that read, “Live by the Gun, Die by the Gun.”

After about half an hour, more protesters began to arrive to show their concern for the passing of the Florida bill.

With fliers that read, “Say No to Campus Carry,” Aurora Cox showed up to the busy street corner to share additional information and help Dexter protest.

Cox’s daughter is a UCF graduate, and she said if UCF was a school with open carry when her daughter was a student, she wouldn’t have let her attend.

“I just don’t buy into ‘more guns make us safe,’” Cox said. “It’s just not the kind of world that I want to live in.”

Sweden’s Acceptance of Refugees And Welfare System Imploding: ‘No Apartments, No Jobs, No Shopping Without a Gun’…


Utopia for Bernie and his Feel the Bern Crowd.

Via Gatesone Institute:

The week after the double murder at IKEA in Västerås, where a man from Eritrea who had been denied asylum grabbed some knives and stabbed Carola and Emil Herlin to death, letters and emails poured into the offices of Swedish Prime Minister (PM) Stefan Löfven. Angry, despondent and desperate Swedes have pled with the Social Democratic PM to stop filling the country with criminal migrants from the Third World or, they write, there is a serious risk of hatred running rampant in Sweden. One woman suggested that because the Swedish media will not address these issues, Löfven should start reading foreign newspapers, and wake up to the fact that Sweden is sinking fast.

During the last few decades, Swedes have had to get used to the government (left and right wing parties alike) prioritizing refugees and migrants above native Swedes. The high tax level (the average worker pays 42% income tax) was been accepted in the past, because people knew that if they got sick, or when they retired or otherwise needed government aid, they would get it.

Now, Swedes see the welfare system failing them. More and more senior citizens fall into the “indigent” category; close to 800,000 of Sweden’s 2.1 million retirees, despite having worked their whole lives, are forced to live on between 4,500 and 5,500 kronor ($545 – $665) a month. Meanwhile, seniors who immigrate to Sweden receive the so-called “elderly support subsidy” — usually a higher amount — even though they have never paid any taxes in Sweden.

Worse, in 2013 the government decided that people staying in the country illegally have a right to virtually free health and dental care. So while the destitute Swedish senior citizen must choose between paying 100,000 kronor ($12,000) to get new teeth or living toothless, a person who does not even have the right to stay in Sweden can get his teeth fixed for 50 kronor ($6).[…]

What follows are excerpts from emails sent from private citizens to Prime Minister Stefan Löfven:

From Mattias, a social worker and father of four, “a dad who wants my kids to grow up in Sweden the way I had the good fortune of doing, without explosions, hand grenades, car fires, violence, rape and murder at IKEA”:

“Hi Stefan. I am a 43-year-old father of four, who is trying to explain to my children, ages 6-16, what is going on in Sweden. I am sad to say that you and your party close your eyes to what is happening in Sweden. All the things that are happening [are] due to the unchecked influx from abroad. You are creating a hidden hatred in Sweden. We are dissatisfied with the way immigration is handled in Sweden, from asylum housing to school issues. And it takes so long to get a job, many people give up before they even get close. Mattias”

Marcus, 21, wrote:

“Hi Stefan, I am one of the people who voted for you. I live in Helsingborg, still with my parents because there are no apartments available. I can see where I live that as soon as an old person moves out, eight foreigners immediately move in: they just bypass us young, Swedish people in line. With all that is going on in Sweden ­– rapes, robberies, the IKEA murders and so on — why aren’t non-Swedes sent back to their countries when they commit crimes? Of course we should help refugees, but they should be the right kind of refugees. … I’m sorry to say this, Stefan, but the Sweden Democrats should be allowed to rule for four years and remove the people who do not abide by the laws, and who murder or destroy young women’s lives. It is horrible, I have a job that pays poorly because there are no jobs. Sweden has more people than jobs.”

Break Out The Ben And Jerry’s Ice Cream: Biden To Announce 2016 Decision Within Days…

Biden Ice Cream Cone

Run, Joe, Run.

Via The Hill:

Vice President Joe Biden is expected to announce whether he will run for president in the next seven to 10 days, according to CBS News.

Two of the three sources CBS News cited said the vice president is leaning toward running.

Several Democratic donors who have met with Biden also told CBS News they came away with the impression that he would run.

The sources say Biden will sit out the first Democratic primary debate Oct. 13 even if he announces his candidacy before then.

A spokesperson for the vice president did not comment to CBS News on the report.

A poll released earlier this week found Biden would be the most popular Democratic candidate if he entered the race.

Forecasters say Biden would likely take more support away from front-runner Hillary Clinton than surging candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), tightening the race for the Democratic nomination.

Putin Has A Foreign Policy For Syria: Save Assad, Secure Key Population Centers…

Putin syria

Obama Administration still working on recruiting moderates for a flowing kinetic action.

Via Stars and Stripes:

Russia’s military intervention in Syria appears to be aimed at helping the government recover control of key population centers and ensure a role for President Bashar Assad in any peace process, undermining the U.S. demand that he give up power, according to U.S. officials and independent analysts.

The apparent Russian strategy isn’t without grave risks, however. The air campaign launched by Russia this week ignited vows of vengeance by Syrian rebels and calls across the Islamic world for retribution that could suck Moscow deeper into the sectarian maelstrom convulsing the Middle East and trigger terrorism at home.

“Russia can no longer count on the backlash of their involvement being largely confined to Syria,” said a U.S. intelligence official, who requested anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly. “The ability of extremists to instantly spread their hateful ideology and incite violence worldwide will be difficult for even (Russian President Vladimir) Putin to ignore and will likely come home to roost.”

Those dangers don’t sway Putin, countered Christopher Harmer, a retired Navy officer and an analyst with the Institute for the Study of War, explaining that Russia historically has shown an extremely high tolerance for pain in pursuing its geostrategic goals.

“What would be a quagmire for us would be a walk in the park to them,” he said. “There are going to be some Russians killed. But it’s not going to be Afghanistan, where thousands of Russians were killed (during the 1979-1989 Soviet occupation).”

Russia unleashed a third day of airstrikes on Friday, including for the first time Islamic State positions. U.S. officials, Syrian opposition groups and independent analysts — bolstered by geolocation data extracted from Russian Defense Ministry videos — countered that most of the attacks since Tuesday have targeted other opposition contingents, including groups backed by the United States and its European and Arab allies.

Putin “couldn’t give a more definitive middle finger to (President Barack) Obama than this,” said Phillip Smyth, a University of Maryland researcher who closely tracks the Syrian war. “The Russians wouldn’t have released the imagery of what they were bombing and saying it was the Islamic State when everyone could geolocate it.”
