‘We wired it’: Emails suggest Clinton aide stage-managed Benghazi hearing questions
Newly released emails suggest a senior Hillary Clinton aide stage-managed her first hearing on the Benghazi terrorist attack by feeding specific topics Clinton wanted to address to Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, who at the time was acting chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.
“We wired it that Menendez would provide an opportunity to address two topics we needed to debunk (her actions/whereabouts on 9/11, and these email from Chris Stevens about moving locations,)” Clinton media gatekeeper Philippe Reines wrote to Chelsea Clinton the morning of the Jan. 23, 2013 hearing.
Oxford Study Defends Islamic Veil, Claims It Aids Integration
The team, which included a fellow of the British Academy and the European Academy of Sociology, drew on data from Belgium, Turkey, and 25 Muslim countries. They looked at women who were forced to wear the garment, as well as those who claimed to have chosen it.
They observe that “there is anecdotal evidence that since the late 20th century young, educated, and urban Muslim women veil more frequently and strictly”. This goes against trends in other religions, where people are becoming more relaxed in their dress.
Muslim parents pull their children out of Toronto elementary school’s music class because music is ‘un-Islamic’
Music class will not be happening for Mohammad Nouman Dasu’s three children at Toronto’s Donwood Park elementary school because music “violates his Islamic faith”.
According to Globe And Mail, the Toronto District School Board originally had offered an accommodation by having students just clap their hands in place of playing instruments instead of being exempt from the whole class, which is a mandatory part of the Ontario curriculum.
Obama’s Greatest Achievement: Understanding the breadth of the enormous damage the Iran nuclear deal has caused.
The time for complaining about President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran has passed. The time has come to overcome the enormous damage his signature foreign policy accomplishment has caused.
To understand why this is the case, it is important to understand the breadth and depth of Obama’s failure.
On August 4, during the course of a press conference, Obama gave his interim assessment of his nuclear agreement with Iran.
“It worked,” he insisted.
As it works out, everything that Obama said about the deal with Iran during his press conference was a lie.
French prime minister slams NY Times for false depiction of Muslim women who say they are “targeted” in France
They tyranny of the enemedia. The New York Times has been enforcing and adhering to the sharia for some time now but they have taken it to a whole new level. So now whole countries, governments even, are anti-Muslim and islamophobic for opposing jihad terror and the mist brutal ideology on the face of the earth, the sharia. That is how absurd – insane, really — the left-elites are wiling to go in order to submit to Islam.
Trump’s ‘Fascist’ TV Network Could Make ‘Fox News Look Like the Disney Channel’
McClennen’s Monday piece for Salon addressed reports that if Trump loses to Hillary Clinton, he, Steve Bannon, and Roger Ailes may start a competitor to Fox News. McClennen expects that a Trumpcentric media business would be “founded on the same principles we have seen in place during his campaign: hate mongering, extreme nationalism, xenophobia, misogyny and a total lack of connection to reality. If the campaign seemed to have fascist tendencies, imagine a news network founded on those same principles.”
McClennen considers the potential audience for Trump TV the dregs of humanity, and doesn’t think much more of Fox News and its viewers: “The network…churn[ed] out hate, lies and stupidity while suggesting that any alternative viewpoint and any correcting information was nothing more than a ‘politically correct’ attack…Because the draw was to appeal to viewers based on their beliefs and not their reason, the channel created a base of viewers that worshiped the network as if it were a religion more than a news station.”
WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE! Brady Campaign Goes Into Hysterics Pushing Gun Control As Congress Returns From Recess
If you listen to the claims made by Dan Gross from Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, 4,500 people were killed in the streets of America in the weeks the House and Senate were on summer recess.
You can almost see report Tim Devaney’s eyes roll as he typed up Brady’s hysterical claims.
Interestingly, Gross and Brady didn’t provide any data to support their claims.
That’s because they’re being intentionally duplicitous.
White Nationalist groups growing much faster than ISIS on Twitter
The number of White Nationalists and self-identified Nazi sympathizers on Twiter had multiplied more than 600 percent in the last four years — outpacing ISIS in all social media aspects, from the number of follower counts to the number of daily tweets, a new study found. The study’s author notes that ISIS has gained a reputation for effectively using Twitter for propaganda and recruitment, but that White Nationalist groups have excelled even more in exploiting the medium. The report says that unlike the campaign Twitter has been conducting against ISIS, White Nationalists are continuing to use the service with “relative impunity.”
FBI director says agency preparing attack on data encryption after the elections
In a lengthy keynote address on August 30, FBI Director James Comey said the federal government is planning to renew its drive to break data encryption in 2017.
He told a group of cyber security specialists at the Symantec Government Symposium in Washington DC that “what we want to do is collect information this year” to prepare enforcement of backdoor government access to private data and devices.
Young Blacks Voice Skepticism on Hillary Clinton, Worrying Democrats
Young African-Americans, like all voters their age, are typically far harder to drive to the polls than middle-aged and older Americans. Yet with just over two months until Election Day, many Democrats are expressing alarm at the lack of enthusiasm, and in some cases outright resistance, some black millennials feel toward Mrs. Clinton.
Their skepticism is rooted in a deep discomfort with the political establishment that they believe the 68-year-old former first lady and secretary of state represents. They share a lingering mistrust of Mrs. Clinton and her husband over criminal justice issues. They are demanding more from politicians as part of a new, confrontational wave of black activism that has arisen in response to police killings of unarmed African-Americans.
