American Airlines Flight Forced To Land After Pilot Dies During Flight…


At least the plane landed safely.  It could have been much worse.

Via Fox Boston:

An American Airlines captain died during a flight, a company official told CNN on Monday. The official did not specify the cause other than to say it was “due to pilot illness.” The flight, an A320 with 147 passengers and five crew members on board, was en route from Phoenix to Boston when the pilot was overcome. The co-pilot landed the flight safely.

Clinton On Benghazi Committee: “If I Were President, I Would Have Done Everything To Shut It Down”


Wow, this woman is insane.

Via Buzzfeed:

Her campaign has called the House Select Committee on Benghazi a “taxpayer-funded sham,” a “Republican hit-job,” and an investigation designed to drive down poll numbers and play “electoral politics with a terrorist attack.”

On Monday, at a televised town hall here in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton said as much and then some: She argued that the committee was set up “for the sole purpose of going after me”; she accused Republicans of exploiting the deaths of the four Americans killed in the Benghazi attacks; and she said that, were she serving as president, she would’ve tried to dismantle such a committee.

“This committee was set up as they have admitted for the purpose of making a partisan, political issue out of the deaths of four Americans,” Clinton said in a live town hall with about 70 voters, hosted by NBC News. “I would’ve never done that. And if I were president, and there were Republicans or Democrats who were thinking about that, I would have done everything to shut it down.”

Arne Duncan’s Dismal Record…


Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Arne!

Via National Review:

On Friday, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced he would be stepping down after nearly seven years on the job.

This makes it a good moment to assess Duncan’s legacy, especially since his tenure has been shrouded by more than its fair share of puffery and overheated PR.

This was predictable when it came to the usual Obama cheerleaders (Tom Friedman wanted Duncan to succeed Hillary Clinton as secretary of state).

But it also showed up at times as generous, even fawning, laurels tossed by the likes of David Brooks, Jeb Bush, Newt Gingrich, and Lamar Alexander.

Michael Moore Calls Lack of Diversity in Hollywood “A Form of Apartheid”…

Michael Moore

Alternate headline: Michael Moore makes millions off racism!

Via Hollywood Reporter:

“When you block out whole groups of film by that cinema, what are the great films that you and I are missing because their great voices can’t be heard?” he said in a Sunday discussion.

Among Michael Moore’s list of grievances is the lack of diversity among Hollywood filmmakers – particularly, that the low number of female directors is “a form of apartheid.”

During the audience Q&A portion of a conversation with Moore at the New York Film Festival on Sunday, Just Another Girl on the I.R.T. director Leslie Harris asked about the oft-discussed topic – particularly, what their white male counterparts can do to help minorities break through.

“It’s amazing, really, that women are so nice, or that any of us have throats left – I mean, seriously, we’re lucky,” said Moore, after quoting the USC statistic that only 1.9 percent of the top-grossing 100 films over the past two years were directed by women.

Vanderbilt University Students Warned: Bulging Biceps And Big Guns Advance Unhealthy Masculinity…


Via College Fix:

The size of G.I. Joe’s biceps and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s guns in the Terminator movies is proof that the dominant form of masculinity is out of control.

That message and similar ones were conveyed recently to students during Vanderbilt University’s “Healthy Masculinities Week,” organized by the Margaret Cuninggim Women’s Center. Attendance for students was optional.

The Vanderbilt week kicked off with a lecture by the first man to minor in women’s studies at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Jackson Katz. (His alma mater now offers a bachelor’s in women, gender and sexuality studies.)

The self-described “anti-sexist activist” and filmmaker said that sexual violence and domestic abuse are men’s issues and that men would “benefit tremendously from having this conversation.”

Katz founded a consulting firm that “provides gender violence prevention and leadership training to institutions in the public and private sectors” and has pioneered the use of bystander training in the U.S. military, according to his website.

At the event, Katz likened racism to sexism, and told students that “people interrupt other people when they make racist comments.” Therefore they should have the same mindset in response to sexist comments, Katz said.

Lib Rag Salon: Islam Gave Women More Equal Rights In The Year 610 Than America Does In 2015…

Wait, what?

Via Salon:

…For example, far from Dr. Carson’s claim that in Islam women are subservient, Islam gave women equal rights in 610 that our own United States haven’t given even in 2015. To this day America has not passed the Equal Rights Amendment. Meanwhile the Quran 33:36 emphatically declares the equality of men and women:

“Surely, men who submit themselves to God and women who submit themselves to Him…God has prepared for all of them forgiveness and a great reward.”

Report: U.S. Enforcement Of Arms Embargo Against Iran Dropped Sharply Since Obama Began Nuke Talks…

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei gestures as he speaks to workers in Tehran


Via Reuters:

Addressing concerns that a landmark nuclear deal reached this year could boost Iran’s military power, the Obama administration reassured critics that it would maintain and enforce its remaining tough sanctions against the country.

Yet the U.S. government has pursued far fewer violations of a long-standing arms embargo against Iran in the past year compared to recent years, according to a review of court records and interviews with two senior officials involved in sanctions enforcement.

The sharp fall in new prosecutions did not reflect fewer attempts by Iran to break the embargo, the officials said. Rather, uncertainty among prosecutors and agents on how the terms of the deal would affect cases made them reluctant to commit already scarce resources with the same vigor as in previous years, the officials said.

The more relaxed enforcement raises questions over how strictly the arms embargo and other remaining sanctions will be applied in future, since the nuclear deal still needs to be implemented and Iran will likely remain sensitive to a tough sanctions regime.

Swedish Bishop Calls For Removing Cross From Church And Mark Direction Of Mecca To Make City More Inviting For Muslims…


In case you were wondering what cultural suicide looks like.

Via SVT (Google translation):

Bishop Eva Brune has proposed to remove the Christian symbols of the Seamen’s Church in Freeport to make it more inviting for visiting sailors from other religions.

The bishop wants to temporarily make the Seamen’s Church available to all, for example by marking the direction of Mecca and move Christian symbols, as is already done in common prayer rooms at airports and in some hospital chapel.

“Leasing a room for people of other faiths, does not mean that we are defenders of our own faith. Priests are called to proclaim Christ. We do that every day and in every meeting with people. But that does not mean that we are stingy toward people of other faiths, “writes Bishop Eva Brune at Stockholm pin homepage.

The proposal has triggered protests, Patrik Pettersson, priest of the Oscars parish in Stockholm, thinks that the proposal is noteworthy and writes on his blog:

“The church chapel can not reasonably be equated with prayer rooms at airports and hospitals chapel anyway. The Christian church churches and chapels are not the public areas at any time. ”

And the Seamen’s Mission Director Kiki Wetterberg does not agree with the bishop.

– I have no problem with Muslim or Hindu sailors come here and pray. But I believe that we are a Christian church, so we keep the symbols. If I visit a mosque I did not ask them to take down their symbols. It’s my choice to go in there, she tells the magazine Dage n.

Hillary Clinton: I’ll Use ‘Administrative Action’ To Implement My Gun Control Plan, If Congress Doesn’t Approve


Why not? Obama got away with rampant unconstitutional use of executive actions.

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton threatened Monday to use unilaterally implement a new gun control plan if Congress does not pass her measures.

Her push for further gun control measures comes in the wake of the tragic shooting at a community college campus in Oregon last week.

The campaign platform includes a call for federal legislation mandating background checks on all private firearms transfers and sales. Clinton also wants to repeal the “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.”

This legislation, which protects gun manufacturers and dealers from negligence when a firearm is used in an act of violence, was passed by both chambers and signed in 2005 by President George W. Bush. Clinton, who voted against the bill when she was a New York senator, said the legislation is a “dangerous law.”

Clinton also said that “if Congress won’t act,” she will take “administrative action to close” the so-called “gun show and internet sales loophole” and require that anyone trying to sell a significant number of guns be deemed “in the business” of selling firearms.

Four California High School Students Arrested For Plotting To “Kill As Many People As Possible” At School


Good they got to them in time.

Via LA Times:

A day before a gunman in Oregon killed eight classmates and his college writing teacher, Tuolumne County sheriff’s detectives foiled a plot by students to go on a shooting rampage at their high school near Yosemite National Park, authorities said.

The Summerville Union High School students, all male, had detailed plans that “included names of would-be victims, locations, methods in which the plan was to be carried out,” Sheriff Jim Mele told reporters at a news conference Saturday. The targets included other students and faculty members.

The boys confessed, Mele said, according to the Modesto Bee and KCRA-TV Channel 3. Three were arrested Wednesday and a fourth detained Friday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit assault with deadly weapons, a statement provided by the sheriff’s office said.

“They were going to come on campus and shoot and kill as many people as possible at the campus,” Mele told the Bee.

High School Students Revolt After Principal Cancels ‘America Pride Day’


Lord knows you wouldn’t want to offend someone by actually being proud to be an American.

Via Daily Caller:

Students at a Wyoming high school took matters into their own hands last week by festooning themselves in the colors of the American flag after the principal and an assistant principal canceled “America Pride Day” over concerns that some immigrant students could feel sad and left out.

The scene of the red, white and blue brouhaha was Jackson Hole High School in Jackson, Wyo., reports the Jackson Hole News&Guide.

In response to a decision by school officials to replace a previously-held “America Pride Day” with “College Day” as part of this year’s homecoming festivities, a large group of senior students and some juniors protested by bedecking themselves with American flag capes, American flag headbands, American flag shorts and all manner of beautifully and garishly patriotic American flag ornamentation.

After school, one kid also drove a diesel truck around the parking lot with a bunch of American flags waving in the breeze.

Jackson Hole High principal Scott Crisp blamed the results of a student survey and his concerns that some students may feel excluded if they see an American flag for the administration’s decision to cancel “America Pride Day.”

ISIS Blows Up Another Ancient Monument In Syria: 2,000-Year-Old “Arch Of Triumph” Reduced To Rubble…


Via BBC:

Islamic State militants in northern Syria have blown up another monument in the ancient city of Palmyra, officials and local sources say.

The Arch of Triumph was “pulverised” by the militants who control the city, a Palmyra activist told AFP news agency.

It is thought to have been built about 2,000 years ago.

IS fighters have already destroyed two ancient temples at the site, described by Unesco as one of the most important cultural centres of the ancient world.

“The Arch of Triumph was pulverised. IS has destroyed it,” Mohammad Hassan al-Homsi, an activist from Palmyra told AFP on Monday.

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a group monitoring the conflict, said sources on the ground had confirmed the destruction.
