  • Hillary's Closest Aide Admits Clinton 'Illegally' Burned Daily Schedule

    Just two weeks after we exposed the fact that Hillary Clinton's official calendar is "missing" a lot of entries, more 'illegal' allegations are being exposed from her reign as Secretary of State. In a deposition last week, NYPost reports that Hillary Clinton's cloests aide - Huma Abedin - revelaed that her boss destroyed at least some of her schedules as secretary of state — a revelation that could complicate matters for the presumptive Democratic nominee, who, along with the State Department she ran, is facing numerous lawsuits seeking those public records. Huma Abedin was deposed in connection with a Freedom...

    Urbana, IL — If you decide to desecrate an American flag and share photos of your big moment on social media, beware the wrath of the internet. A 22-year-old Illinois man learned that lesson after setting a flag on fire and sharing photos on his Facebook page. Bryton Mellott paired the photos with statements about violence and race in the U.S., according to a Forbes report. "I am not proud to be an American. In this moment, being proud of my country is to ignore the atrocities committed against people of color, people living in poverty, people who identify as...

    Here we go again: another liberal narrative burned to a crisp. Over a two-week period in October, an arsonist targeted seven churches in the St. Louis area -- including several in Black Lives Matter protest hotspot Ferguson, Mo. The Atlantic magazine, invoking the "long history of terrorism against black churches in America,” lamented that the crime spree had been "slow to get the same attention” in the local and national media as another string of church arsons that occurred earlier this summer. Reminder: Several of those hyped hate crimes against "black churches” had been committed by black suspects; a significant...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Wood-burning heaters -- including modern pollution-fighting wood stoves -- will not be permitted in new homes built in the Bay Area starting next fall, as part of a first-in-the-nation ban approved by air quality regulators Wednesday. The new rules, approved unanimously by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, will also require every seller of an existing home with a wood-burning fireplace to give buyers a disclosure statement warning of the health risks of wood smoke. Even wood stoves certified by the federal Environmental Protection Agency as low emission would not be allowed in new homes whose...

    AMMAN, Jordan — Just after nightfall Feb. 3, a warrant arrived at the city’s main women’s prison for the execution of Sajida al-Rishawi. The instructions had come from King Abdullah II himself, then in Washington on a state visit, and were transmitted from his private plane to the royal court in Jordan’s capital. A clerk relayed the message to the Interior Ministry and then to the prisons department, where it caused a stir. State executions are complicated affairs requiring many steps, yet the king’s wishes were explicit: The woman would face the gallows before the sun rose the next day.

    Today. | Me.
    Justice Kennedy either does not believe in God, or is unaware of the fact that God burned two cities to death by fire as a consequence of Homosexuality. I regard these two events as the measure of his level of disapproval on the subject. In his ruling Justice Kennedy has effectively thrown down the gauntlet and challenged God to do something about it. I'm thinking that if he lives long enough to see it, he isn't going to like God's response. Whether Kennedy realizes it or not, The Judeo-Christian principles are responsible for Western Civilization. They created the conditions which...

    WASHINGTON — President Obama on Thursday called on nations around the world to expand human rights, religious tolerance and peaceful dialogue as they struggle to combat a spate of terrorism that has recently struck places as far afield as Australia, Canada and Europe. In an address to world leaders on the final day of his summit on violent extremism, Mr. Obama said that poverty and political grievances fuel alienation that can lead to bursts of killing like those seen in Paris, Copenhagen, Sydney and Ottawa. In addition to building up security forces, he said nations must “put an end to...

    Jihad Watch ^ | 2/10/15 | Raymond Ibrahim
    It appears that Islam Web, a popular website owned by Qatar’s Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, may have been responsible for the rationale used by the Islamic State to burn alive a Jordanian pilot captive. On February 7, 2006, the widely accessed Arabic website issued Fatwa No. 71480, titled “The Burning of Ias bin Abdul Yalil by Abu Bakr.” The fatwa, or Islamic decree, concluded that burning people as a form of punishment is permissible. Ironically, hours after the Islamic State burned the pilot alive, Fatwa No. 71480 was removed from Islam Web. What is interesting to note is...

It was a no-brainer, risk-free cause, the type you could support without having to think about it too much or inviting unpopularity or controversy, right? Actually, no. Lots of big-name musicians who now boast of being on that concert roster...

    The truth about murder and race in Mississippi may prove reducible to black and white after all, as with fifty years ago in the infamous “Mississippi Burning” case. Breaking, bombshell social media evidence in the Jessica Chambers case suggests the dynamic is reversed, but similar. In trying to follow and sort out the details surrounding the grisly immolation death of the white former cheerleader two weeks ago, one encounters a cast of very shady characters a country mile long and wide, with the sordid backstory of small-town police corruption in Panola County, and a troubled family tale, all of it...

    Pic of victim Police Monday morning have said that three of the six suspects arrested over the murder of Arab teen Mohammed Abu-Khder have admitted to the crime, and have even reenacted it for police. The development came after one of the suspects admitted to the murder soon after being arrested on Sunday. After confessing he also apparently implicated several others, which seems to have led to the latest confessions. It comes as more information emerges about the circumstances of Mohammed Abu-Khder's death. An initial pathologist's report indicates that the teen was burned alive, with his body suffering 90% burns....

It does not permit revenge upon them to curry favor with others, even our enemies. The burning of an unstated number of Korans in Afghanistan and the aftermath have been much in the news. However, little has been reported factually about who did what, who if anyone told them to do it and/or why. It has not even been reported, beyond speculation, whether the Koran Burners were members of the United States military, some other military...

    (Reuters) - A Detroit prosecutor has filed a petition in district court to stop a Florida fundamentalist Christian preacher, who recently caused riots in Afghanistan after he burned a Koran, from holding a rally outside a large Michigan mosque. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said the threat of violence was too great to allow Terry Jones to hold the planned gathering on Friday near the Islamic Center of America -- the largest U.S. mosque -- in the heavily Muslim Detroit suburb of Dearborn. A hearing on Worthy's bid to block Jones and his supporters from holding the rally at the...

    The recent Qur'an burning by Pastor Terry Jones, the author of Islam is of the Devil, is the continuation of a Western medieval custom of assaulting the dignity of Islam, particularly personal integrity of the Prophet Muhammad, and the divinity of the Qur'an, a holy book that more than a billion people, including American Muslims, hold dear to their hearts. In recent years, the West has invoked the freedom of speech to defend new assaults on Islam, including the Danish publication of cartoons of the Prophet. Unfortunately, the post-9/11 United States, where attacks on the Qur'an are a relatively new...

    Given the preoccupation of the American media with the possible shutdown of the American government, and the preoccupation of American and world media with Japan’s travails and the revolts in the Arab world, many Americans may have missed the news about the April 1 massacre of United Nations employees in Afghanistan. That is unfortunate because it was as significant as it was instructive. It began on Sunday March 20, when a pastor named Terry Jones burned a Koran at his small church in Florida. To their credit, almost no American media covered the event, and a mere 30 people came...

    Once again a mere flicker—in this case burning a copy of the Koran in Florida—has ignited the inferno of deeply seated infidel-hatred that pervades the contemporary Muslim world, precipitating violence, death, and general mayhem amongst our Afghan “ allies.” This eruption was hardly pastor Terry Jones’ fault. The insane orgy of murderous Muslim violence in Afghanistan was a direct result of Islamic doctrine. Jones’ simple non-violent act effectively administered a diagnostic societal stress test revealing—yet again—the pathological mindset engendered by an Islam that remains ossified in its Medieval fortress, defiantly unreformed and unrepentant. Kansas-born Ann Barnhardt was raised on a...

    A young woman in Colorado named Ann Barnhardt watched Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) holding forth on television yesterday about the necessity for rolling back the First Amendment in order not to anger Muslims. This did not sit well with her, and she made a two-part video for YouTube expressing her outrage, and vigorously affirming her right to patriotic dissent. She declares herself strongly at the beginning of the first video: Hello, my name is Ann Barnhardt, and I am apparently one of the very, very last people left in Western Civilization who possesses any quantity of brains and balls simultaneously....

    Top U.S. officials in Afghanistan on Sunday condemned the burning of a Quran in the United States that sparked three days of protests in which more than 20 people died. Burning the Muslim holy book "was hateful, it was intolerant and it was extremely disrespectful and again, we condemn it in the strongest manner possible," said Gen. David Petraeus, who heads the U.S.-led international forces in Afghanistan. U.S. Ambassador Karl Eikenberry said in a statement that Americans respect the Quran "and all religious texts and deplore any action that shows disrespect to any religious faith." "At the same time, I...

    Hey, General Petraeus, OF COURSE it is, “…hateful,… intolerant and…extremely disrespectful,” to burn the koran. That’s the point! They want us to be cowed by their religion, forced to be told what we can or can’t do, because of their death-cult religion. They have been extorting the world with their terror, because of that book! Is it burning one book that is responsible for the innocent deaths of hundreds of thousands of muslims and infidels worldwide? OR, 26% of the muslims IN THIS COUNTRY who follow that book thinking suicide bombings are legitimate? OR, filthy pedophile following imams preaching from...

Haque and Choudhury were filmed unfurling plastic poppies and burning them at the end of a silence close to London’s Royal Albert Hall on November 11 last year, the court heard.

    Tea party antics could end up burning RepublicansBy Amy Gardner Washington Post Staff Writer Thursday, October 28, 2010; 12:32 AM The tea party's volatile influence on this election year appears to be doing more harm than good for Republicans' chances in some of the closest races in the nation, in which little-known candidates who upset the establishment with primary wins are now stumbling in the campaign's final days. In Kentucky, a volunteer for tea-party-backed Senate candidate Rand Paul was videotaped stepping on the head of a liberal protester. In Delaware and Colorado, Senate hopefuls Christine O'Donnell and Ken Buck, respectively,...

    OPEN LETTER TO GEN. PETRAEUS (Please re-post to anti-jihad sites) “Were the actual burning to take place, the safety of our soldiers and civilians would be put in jeopardy and accomplishment of the mission would be made more difficult.” – Gen. David Petraeus General, I ask you this: what in hell is your “mission” if We The People jeopardize it by exercising our First Amendment rights in our own homeland? Is your “mission” to defend our rights against foreign enemies, or to defend foreign enemies against our rights? You made your choice, and you justified it by claiming that you...

    A Florida pastor who canceled plans for his congregation to burn Qurans on the anniversary of the September 11 attacks had the right to follow through with his intentions, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer said Wednesday. In an interview Wednesday on CNN’s “Larry King Live,” the associate justice compared the act of burning Islam’s holy book to setting the American on flag on fire when asked whether the Rev. Terry Jones had the right to carry out the controversial plan. “We protect expression that we hate,” he said. “When you have a country of 300 million different people who think...
