I feel like doing a round the tubes post today, deal with it.
First, we have CNN wondering something that I’ve wondered for years, why do UN “Peacekeepers” (actual results may vary) have immunity for their sexual abuse deals?
Personnel have forced women and children to have sex in exchange for food, have trafficked women into U.N. missions and systematically raped them, and have committed other egregious acts of sexual violence. Few of those responsible have ever been brought to justice. (links in original,
I am surprised that CNN allowed this to be posted on their site, they usually suppress things, they’re in the affirmation business not the information business after all.
Speaking of the Ministry of Truth, some Russian journalists, who are forced to do their govt’s bidding (unlike ours), have formed a media in exile.
Russia’s regulator considered the material as a violation of a law against extremism. The journalists got the message that they wouldn’t be able to escape censorship if they stayed in Russia.
“The dismissal of the chief editor and the appointment of the pro-Kremlin official is a violation of the law on media, which discusses the inadmissibility of censorship,” reads an open letter of the Lenta journalist in protest of Timchenko’s dismissal.
Good for them, here we have self-censorship.
Sunnis are wondering why the hell Obama is favoring the Shiites but they’re confused about one thing
Presidential advisors like Valerie Jarret and Robert Malley seem to think that because of its ancient civilization, Iran should sweep the region and end Sunni power. They argue that because the metropolitan Persians are superior to the Bedouin Arabs, and because Iranian Shiite Islam is more moderate than the radical Sunni Islam of Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Gulf, America should make of Iran its Middle East partner and force Gulf Arabs to enter into security arrangements on Tehran’s terms
Yeah, but it’s not about all that stuff, it’s about hating America and the various Sunni dictatorships do not hate us enough.
Soopermexican links the Hill so I don’t have to.
A group of Senate Democrats is urging the Obama administration to allow at least 65,000 Syrian refugees to settle inside the United States.
Don’t think of it as importing thousands of jihadis, think of it as a target-rich environment.
That’s how these “refugees” think of America after all.
Have you ever wondered how the six-fingered man got that extra finger? Well, wonder no more.
Moreover, one hadith states that those who have sexual intercourse with their hands will find their hands pregnant…
I am surprised he didn’t wear glasses.
They are combating the problem though.
“It has everything one would want for a wedding,” al-Homsi said of Raqqa — a riverside provincial capital that in the 18 months since IS took control has seen militants beheading opponents and stoning alleged adulteresses in public.
It’s just like Niagara Falls except with blood instead of water.
Speaking of murderously dangerous cities run by religious extremists, et’s seq our ue to America!
You’re 45% more likely to be murdered in De Blasio’s NYC than in Bloomberg’s.
Crime and murder is up in Baltimore too.
Investor’s Business Daily makes a doubleplusungood connection!
Lawlessness: Fueled by this president’s anti-police policies and race-baiting rhetoric, thugs are attacking cops and terrorizing major cities. Horrible violence is breaking out all over. We are witnessing a national crime wave.
Heh. Heh I say.
Not so “heh” worthy?
WAR ON COPS=> THIRD White Police Officer SHOT DEAD This Week (emphasis me V)
Now, I’m totally against the use of police as revenue generators and their use of military tactics against undeserving victims, but that’s very bad. It’s just another of the reasons I’ve been hoping for an asteroid for years, the results of stuff like that is too bad to contemplate as we either have unbelievable crime waves as cops stop policing or even more militarization of the police in response.
On the lighter side of the news
A video showing a car attempting to park but actually plowing into journalists (emphasis me V) might have resulted from the Volvo’s owner not paying an extra fee to have the car avoid pedestrians.
I hope the car wasn’t dented.
In Not At All Funny Cuz It’s True news
Again, thanks to socklessjoe for the idea that could be the savior of the American Experiment in Self-Rule!
