  • How three enterprising Chechen ladies took ISIS for $3,300

    Houston Politics Examiner ^ | July 31, 2015 | Mark R. Whittington
    Yahoo Travel reported on Wednesday that three women in Chechnya took ISIS for $3,300 before getting caught. They are now under investigation for Internet fraud, which seems to be illegal even when committed against the most fearsome terrorist army in modern times. The scam seems to be a combination of the Nigerian Prince con, in which a mark is fooled into giving the con artist large sums of money and catfishing, in which the mark strikes up an online romance with someone he thinks is an attractive woman (or man depending on the gender and preference of the mark.)

    RIKERS ISLAND — The head of the Harlem Historical Society wants Rikers Island renamed based on the namesake family's connection to slavery. The embattled jail complex, which has been beset with scandal over poor treatment of inmates and calls to shut it down, gets its name from the family of Abraham Rycken, a Dutch immigrant who settled in New York in the 1600s, according to the New York Historical Society. Jacob Morris, director of the Harlem Historical Society, recently started a petition to rename the embattled jail complex due to family member Richard Riker's history of helping send blacks into...

The Washington Post published an “investigation” of the “sexism” of air conditioning. The author, Petula Dvorak, spoke to an array of women who felt as if their offices were too cold; meanwhile, the men did not feel uncomfortable. Therefore, Dvorak concluded, “That’s right, my friends. Air conditioning is another big, sexist plot.” …

Jason Buzi, a millionaire Israeli businessman living in San Francisco, believes that a new island could be created to house all of the world's millions of refugees. His 'Refugee Nation' project suggests creating a brand new country "which any refugee, from anywhere in the world, can call home" - perhaps by taking over an existing country without many people or building a new island in the...

My tenants are loading their weapons, they say that several local hunters are out looking for this guy. We are also prepared. Weapons at the ready, all external lights on and our GSD is out patrolling the property. Maybe a practice run for what is coming. I'll update on this thread if anything happens.

    On June 23, 2014 35 members of Congress sent a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, urging him to release lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) illegals. Due to significantly higher sexual assault rates among this population in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody, ICE established a working group to develop recommendations to address this very real and serious issue. However, Congress is pressuring DHS to release these individuals before the working group’s recommendations have been reviewed. The members stated in their letter that, “…detention should almost never be used for vulnerable groups such as LGBT immigrants.” It is unclear...

While I respect the man’s right to do what he wants with his body, I do not think he/she should be held in such high, hero-like regard. I was quite pleased to see that other women are also speaking out about what it really means to be a courageous female.

Pan up from the shoe and there's a glimpse of a hooded sweatshirt topping off the towering statue, an unmistakeable bit of clothing loaded with meaning. Titled "TM 13," the work -- shown above -- memorializes the death of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Florida teenager who was fatally shot by former neighborhood watch leader George Zimmerman three years ago. Created by Missouri-born artist Nick Cave, the piece is currently...

    A teenager has survived after falling 100ft off a cliff then being bitten by a venomous snake at the bottom. Brock Leach, 14, tumbled over a cliff edge and bounced off outcroppings and rocks during his descent - before landing on a ledge. But as he tried to clamber to safety before the tide came in Brock suddenly felt a sharp pain in the hand he'd been using to help pull himself along. He was horrified to discover he had been bitten by an adder - the only native venomous snake in the UK. The fall was witnessed by his...

This is part of his legacy push to release as many scumbags back on to the streets as possible, or as he calls it “justice reform.” During an otherwise uneventful waste of time and money a funny thing happened: the President of the United States admitted that he used to be a drug dealer or possibly drug trafficker. It’s hard not to feel the patriotic pride. Obama’s visit to the El Reno minimum-security prison in Oklahoma was as bullsh*t as it gets. ABC...

You can never "un-see" the two pictures at the end. Muslims have a hand sign that silently communicates the Shadaha, meaning, "The only god is Allah and Mohammed his prophet." The index finger is extended vertically to symbolize "one god." It is chilling watching the photos in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZOkuIdkBXg You can bet that 100% of the Muslims of the world viewing these photos of Obama know...

Lindsey Graham said he'd place around 10,000 troops in Syria today if he were president, in order to eradicate the heart of the Islamic State group's attempted caliphate. That call amounted to one of the most aggressive proposals by a 2016 presidential candidate regarding dealing with Syria, which has been engulfed in years of fighting between the government, rebels and Islamic militants. In remarks before The Atlantic Council on Wednesday, Graham, R-S.C., said half-measures like arming the Kurds to fight the Islamic State group were insufficient, and name-checked two of his...

It discusses how a high carb, low fat and protein diet is the cause of obesity in America, and it's exactly what the government and health groups are demanding people follow to "get healthy".

"It's like an annual poke in the eye," said one concerned citizen, who did not wish to be self-identified as a member of any particular orientation nor gender. "As Michelle Obama recently said, the time has come to reconsider our traditions and reexamine our historical perspectives in order to accommodate this new generation who may not wish to glorify...

    Russia's investigative committee spokesman has demanded that an international investigation be launched into the US 1969 moon landings, after a US-led investigation into the world governing body Fifa, cast doubt over the fairness of choosing Russia to host the next World Cup. Nine Fifa officials were implicated in a US and Swiss investigation into the alleged corruption, with the scandal eventually leading to the organisation's president Sepp Blatter to announce his resignation. Russia and Qatar have both denied that their hosting rights are linked to any wrongdoing, however about a fortnight ago the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) confirmed...

    The decision by ESPN and Capital One to allow the actor previously known as Bruce Jenner to desecrate the Arthur Ashe courage award dishonors real heroes. Jenner has done nothing to deserve the Arthur Ashe award........ If Jenner accepts the award he will mark himself as a coward rather than a hero.

    Donald Trump has more followers on Facebook than any other candidate, but most are from developing countries.Donald Trump is running for president and whatever you think of his chances of picking up votes, on Facebook no candidate trumps The Donald. Yet, there’s something strange about a lot of the fans. Only 42 percent of Trump’s 1,694,561 followers on Facebook are American, while most come from developing nations like the Philippines, Malaysia, India, South Africa, Indonesia and Colombia, a Vocativ analysis shows. (GRAPH-AT-LINK)It’s not entirely unusual for Trump to have followers in developing countries given that he’s an internationally renowned business...

    It was a perfect diversion during this, another pre-election campaign season. While ISIS continues to dominate the Middle East, Christians continue to be beheaded, Iran develops its nuclear bomb and secret trade Javelin 1976agreements are being pushed through Congress, all media attention is directed elsewhere. At the 1976 Summer Olympics, Bruce Jenner won a gold medal and broke an Olympic world record, scoring 8,634 points in the decathlon. He was more famous than Mohammed Ali! A good looking guy, he did it all! Twice married, once with the mother of the famous Kardashian sisters although they were sired prior to...

    Yes, I know that we already hit this story yesterday. Ed covered it here, while AP weighed in here and here as well. But as I watched the media coverage of the Rachel Dolezal news roll out yesterday I just couldn’t let this particular sleeping dog lie. (And I apologize in advance if this is a bit long but there’s a lot of material to cover. Please bear with me.) The initial questions about what Dolezal is alleged to have done seems fairly cut and dry at first glance, but are they really? Sure, barring some proof that her parents...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Last night at Dallas police headquarters, a man opened fire on officers after planting bombs around the building which police later detonated. After a lengthy standoff and a barrage of bullets flying both ways, the gunman is dead and miraculously, no police were injured. What’s got social media abuzz with anger and disbelief is how CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield described the attacker: “It was very courageous and brave, if not crazy as well, to open fire on the police headquarters.” If you’re disgusted, you’re not alone: (VIDEO-AT-LINK)[continued]

    Our friends in London have new delight… appropriately close to where Tyburn Tree stood, near Marble Arch.From ihorror.com: There’s a new statue on public display in London that is meant to “inspire” and “delight” those who pass it on their daily commute, though we’re thinking words like “terrify,” “horrify” and “petrify” are more fitting for this particular piece of art.It’s called ‘She Guardian,’ and Russian artist Dashi Namdakov has spent the last two years sculpting the towering figure out of four massive tons of bronze. Measuring 36-feet high, the artist says the attention-grabbing piece expresses a sense of maternal protectiveness, which...

    The armed guard who protected Geraldo Rivera as he covered the Baltimore riots has been under arrest since May 1 due to the fact that he did not have a license to carry a gun in Maryland. According to the The Baltimore Sun’s Kevin Rector, the guard “has been in jail since May 1 for carrying guns around Baltimore protest w/o an MD carry permit.” The Sun reports that Baltimore Officer John Potts “spotted a man holding handcuffs and an ammunition box” on May 1. He kept watching and saw Donald F. Scott allegedly “open the rear hatch of a...
