P5+1 agreed to protect Iranian nuke program against Israel?

From Israel Matzav, with thanks to Will at THE OTHER NEWS:

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran requires the P5+1 countries toprotect Iranian nuclear facilities against sabotage by Israel.
However, one provision of the deal has received scant coverage. Blogs, specialized media outlets, the Israeli and some Jewish press have reported on a troubling section of the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA) that commits the signatories to help protect Iran from sabotage of its nuclear facilities. But the popular press has not widely covered this troubling element of the deal.
Arutz Sheva reports on Article 10 of the agreement: 
In the deal the world powers obligate to "co-operation in the form of training courses and workshops to strengthen Iran's ability to prevent, protect and respond to nuclear security threats to nuclear facilities and systems as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems." Leaving no doubts about the intentions, the text then promises "co-operation through training and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to protect against, and respond to nuclear security threats, including sabotage."
Reports are that these clauses were not present in the interim JPOA signed in April. This was apparently a last minute concession to Iran.
Since the United States and its Western allies are signatories to this agreement, the “protection” and “response” would not be to any action undertaken by them. The same can be said for China and Russia who would be unlikely to sabotage Iran anyway. Therefore, the “nuclear security threats, including sabotage” must refer to potential actions by Israel, believed to be party to previous acts of sabotage against Iran’s nuclear program.
In other words, the United States will be protecting Iran, whose leaders frequently chant “Death to America,” from Israel, frequently described as “America’s best friend in the region.”
Obama has always wanted an excuse to go to war with Israel. Now he has one.

Israel donates Cobra helos to Jordan to combat the Islamic State

Israel has given its surplus Bell AH-1 Cobra attack helicopters to Jordan to bolster its neighbour’s defence against the Islamic State, the Reuters news agency reported on 23 July.

Approximately 16 AH-1E/F Cobras that were retired from the Israeli Air Force in 2013 were refurbished and handed over to Jordan in 2014 in a deal that was approved by the United States.

The Royal Jordanian Air Force already fields 12 AH-1F helicopters, which are operated by 10 and 12 Squadron out of Zarqa, northeast of the capital, Amman. The ex-Israeli Cobras will join those already in service protecting Jordan’s borders with Syria and Iraq against possible incursions by Islamic State fighters.
So Israel, KSA, and UAE speak with one voice on Iran, and now Israel is helping other new friends with the war against the undead.

We should all congratulate Barack Obama for achieving the impossible.

Who knows, maybe in our lifetime we will see the Egyptian army and the IDF under one flag roll into Qom and Tehran because B Obama‘s stubborn naive evil mind operated without a single clue based in the reality of the world and its humans

“I fear that what could happen is if Congress were to overturn it, our friends Israel could actually wind up being more isolated and more blamed”

John Kerry in an ‘intense’ meeting with Jewish leaders in the NYC area warns that Americans who happen to be Jewish will be blamed for controlling American policy?
  • Ignorance
  • Fear
  • Coercion
  • Bigotry
  • Secretary of State
Congress, this is a treaty. DO YOUR DUTY.

Reject the pact

Override the VETO

Nothing is more revealing about the true thinking of this administration than this thinly veiled warning about the ‘Protocols of Zion’, ancient bigotries, and the PROMISE that SOME PEOPLE will accuse SOME OTHER PEOPLE of DUAL LOYALTIES.

Breathtaking Stupidity on Display Again..ASTONISHING

Way back after 9/11 I was reading the New Republic, which is a left of center and formerly well read journal of political opinion and fact.

I read then with popping eyeballs a story reported to them from a staffer that Senator Joe Biden wanted to release (or give) $300,000,000 to the mullahs of Iran to PROVE that what we were engaged in was not a war on Islam.

At the time I was some months into daily discussions with Muslims and Muslimas in places like Syria, Jordan, Iran, Iraq, KSA, Oman, UAE, and Pakistan AMONG OTHERS.

Therefore, with some assurance I had a clue, I knew Mr. Biden had NONE.

Now, after making some kind of a non-deal deal, with secret and semi secret (once exposed by the horrified) side deals, and the entire proposition on this side suddenly finding that adherence to the non-deal deal is word for word VOLUNTARY, and guaranteeing that IF IRAN DOES NOT CHEAT that 3651 days from now, they will have IRBM,s ICBM’s, lots of cash, weapons and nuclear weapons deliverable by missile, jet, and Hezballah and HAMAS, …


How they ignore the bitter reality that the mullahs will NEVER give up the weapon that they believe both makes safe their ‘revolution’ and makes possible their ultimate nocturnal emission, killing all the Jews is well beyond me.

The mullahs feels safe in making the only alternative to this deal war, because they understand there will be no war from the likes of us. In fact they are certain this admin will restrain Israel.

Had Churchill gotten HIS way in 1936, he would have probably been remembered as an aggressive war monger ( which is PRECISELY what he was accused of from 36-40), and 45 million more people would have been alive.

Sometimes alternatives SUCK.

Again, this entire argument about ‘give me an alternative’ is absurd. In May 1940 before Dunkirk, Lord Halifax as British Foreign secretary has negotiated a deal to get England out of the war and save the British army. It included ceding Gibraltar among other groveling items. When Churchill looked at him as if he was insane, Halifax said, ‘this is the best deal possible, what alternative do you have?’ He ended up leaving THAT administration THAT DAY.

So let me outline what we will find if Iran does not cheat, 3651 days from now, with Jonathan Pollard living in Israel.

KSA will have about 100 nukes on Pakistani missiles, and HUNDREDS of French fighters capable of delivering more. So will UAE have some nukes and they will be deliverable. Egypt, now a client of Russia (again) will be even MORE ‘prepared’

Israel will have well over 1000 warheads, and in any case MORE THAN CHINA, and a significant proportion of them will be first strike weapons. They may have submarines ready with SLBM’s as well.

In fact if the admin took what THEY said about our relationship with Israel seriously, they would already have introduced the bill sending 4-6 retiring Ohio Class missile subs to Israel for ‘deterring’ those who may or may not be deterrable.

Iran will announce that, so sorry, they had several score of ready to use weapons now set for first strike and launch on warning, and they are ready to take on their role of leading the Muslims to Al Quds by killing the god cursed Jews.

And BTW, that’s the BEST CASE.

Two Inspector Generals Urge Criminal Probe In Hillary Clinton's Use of Emails

Criminal Inquiry Sought in Hillary Clinton's Use of Email
WASHINGTON -- Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether Hillary Rodham Clinton mishandled sensitive government information on a private email account she used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday. 
The request follows an assessment in a June 29 memo by the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies that Mrs. Clinton's private account contained "hundreds of potentially classified emails." The memo was written to Patrick F. Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management.

The Justice Department has not decided if it will open an investigation, senior officials said. A spokesman for Mrs. Clinton’s campaign declined to comment.
On Monday, a federal judge sharply questioned State Department lawyers at a hearing in Washington about why they had not responded to Freedom of Information Act requests from The Associated Press, some of which were four years old. 
"I want to find out what’s been going on over there -- I should say, what’s not been going on over there," said Judge Richard J. Leon of United States District Court, according to a transcript obtained by Politico. The judge said that "for reasons known only to itself," the State Department "has been, to say the least, recalcitrant in responding."
From Ace of Spades:
Oh, and you should also know: Hillary Clinton called the New York Times to complain about the headline and the story, and, get this, the New York Times changed the story to be more agreeable to Her Awfulness.

John Cleese of Monty Python: "London is No Longer English"

Cleese @0:31: "...when the parent culture kind of dissipates...you're left thinking, well, wha wha what's going on?"

Definition of dissipate: verb...to become scattered or dispersed; be dispelled; disintegrate Synonyms 1. See scatter. 3. disappear, vanish.

Well, Mr. Cleese, to those of us watching and warning about the demographic shift in London and around the world, we see it as clear as day. It's an invasion, also known in the doctrinal sense - hijrah.
"And those of the People of the Book who aided them, Allah did take them down from their strongholds and cast terror into their hearts. (so that some ye slew, and some ye made prisoners. And he made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, and of a land which ye had not frequented (before). And Allah has power over all things." (Qur'an 33:26-27)

Kerry plays know-it-all

Leave it to John Kerry to act like he knows better than concerned Israeli politicians do:
US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday it would be a huge mistake if Israel decided to take unilateral military action against Iran over its nuclear program in the future.

Kerry was asked in an NBC "Today" show interview if the nuclear deal reached last week between would make it more likely that Israel might attempt a military or cyber attack on Tehran.

"That'd be an enormous mistake, a huge mistake with grave consequences for Israel and for the region, and I don't think it's necessary," Kerry said.
I think it's a big mistake for Kerry to be panning Israel's government when there's danger boiling away in the dungeons of Iran's dictatorship. But this is typical of Kerry, to preach inaction, and then only ensure that danger and evil have more chance of being perpetrated.

Loretta Lynch: I'll Be Looking at "All Information" Connected to These Planned Parenthood Videos

This is an important post for anyone here at IBA who still believes we live in the United States of America.

We don't.

The government has become more of a threat to the citizens of the United States than are the Jihadists.

Hell, Barack Obama, the King of Threats, might very well agree with me. 

From Ace of Spades:

Allah wonders what the catch is, then answers himself: She probably means she'll be investigating the people who conducted the sting.

Will she? Yes of course she will, and I'll bet you she'll charge them too: I saw someone claiming that the group had, in order to make its cover seem real, registered its fake company, "Biomax" (if I remember right) as a 501(c)(4) group. 
I don't know if they did that or not, and if they did, they would have been careful to have not taken donations, and also to have not misstated their purpose: They would have said something vague like the company's mission is to increase the health of women and children, which is, of course, precisely what their goals are.
Just not what you might think, necessarily, when they come looking to buy baby livers. 
But I bet you $100 they will in fact criminally investigate, and possibly charge, the whistleblowers, because we now live in a society in which the Party of Government has declared full illegal war on non-members of The Party. 
They did not destroy all those emails just to protect Lois Lerner, you know. 
It is now effectively illegal to not be a member of The Party.

Not A Clue


From Sonic Harm
Interesting piece on how little we in the West know/understand about the rise of ISIS. We just can't understand what attracts people to it:
Again, we can list the different external groups that have provided funding and support to ISIS . But there are no logical connections of ideology, identity, or interests that should link Iran, the Taliban, and the Baathists to one another or to ISIS .
Well, except for ...
Nope. Can't think of anything.

"They're Not Baby Parts- They're Called Products of Conception"

From the New Republic:
The Many Manipulations of the Planned Parenthood Attack Videos 
An OB/GYN explains how medically incorrect language is used to distort the facts 
The anti-choice organization Center for Medical Progress--which, in 2013, claimed tax-exempt status as a biomedical charity--have recently released two "undercover" videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing post-procedure tissue donation. 
The group claims the videos demonstrate that Planned Parenthood profits from fetal tissue donation (which would be illegal) and that they are "haggling" over the price of "baby parts." 
As an OB/GYN, I can tell you that neither of these claims are true. 
These are not "baby parts." Whether a woman has a miscarriage or an abortion, the tissue specimen is called "products of conception."
A meeting of the Planned Parenthood Board of Directors:

You do realize our civilization is doomed, right?

Judicial Watch: IRS Used Donor Lists To Target Audits

Evil and Proud of It

When are Koksukaman and Lois (Slow) Lerner going to go to prison?
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained documents from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that confirm that the IRS used donor lists to tax-exempt organizations to target those donors for audits. 
The documents also show IRS officials specifically highlighted how the U.S. Chamber of Commerce may come under “high scrutiny” from the IRS. 
The IRS produced the records in a Freedom of Information lawsuit seeking documents about selection of individuals for audit-based application information on donor lists submitted by Tea Party and other 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations (Judicial Watch v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:15-cv-00220)).

Imam Reveals How Boston Mosques Radicalized Muslims

From Fox:
A moderate imam who raised alarms more than a decade ago about a radical shift at two controversial Boston mosques he led for decades says he was ousted for his efforts by a local doctor whose son joined ISIS and replaced by a man now with the infamous Pakistani terrorist group behind the 2008 Mumbai bombings. 
Imam Talal Eid told FoxNews.com that creeping radicalism put him increasingly at odds in the late 1990s with the board of directors of the Islamic Center of New England, where he served from 1982 until 2005. 
But when Eid, nominally in charge of the religious teaching at the center’s mosques in Sharon and Quincy, resisted, he was left in fear for his safety and eventually driven out by Dr. Abdul-badi Abousamra, at the time a prominent endocrinologist at Massachusetts General Hospital and president of the 1,500-member Center. 
“At times, I was fearful for my safety,” said Eid, a former member of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom who now runs a mosque in Toledo, Ohio. 
“When I would stand up for what I believed in, and there was a clash, you see how I could be scared.” Abousamra, who has since moved to Doha and could not be reached for comment, was one of the Boston Muslim community’s most powerful and prominent figures in the late 1990s and early 2000s. 
In addition to being the center’s president, he was vice president of the Muslim American Society of Boston, which ran the Islamic Society of Boston, a Cambridge mosque that shared many members with those run by the Islamic Center of New England.

Fatwa: Muslims Are Permitted To Sign Contracts They Have No Intention of Honoring

From Islam Questions and Answers:
We all know that at present there is no worldwide Islamic court to which the Muslim could refer in the event of disputes with regard to such global contracts. The one who signs this agreement is not abandoning referral for judgement to the laws of Allah, may He be exalted, because those laws are not being applied in most Muslim countries at all, so how about in non-Muslim countries? If it is permissible for the Muslim to refer for judgement to those courts in order to obtain his rights or ward off harm from himself, then it is more appropriate and will make things easier for him to say that it is permissible for him to sign this agreement without intending to approve of that clause and disapproving of it. The believer’s heart should be at ease with faith and he should intend in his heart not to agree with invalid clauses (from an Islamic perspective) in their contracts. We hope, after that, that this matter will be permissible.

Obama's Two Secret Nuke Deals With Iran About Which He Is Refusing to Inform Congress

I Will Crush America In The Name of Allah

From National Review:
Senator Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) and Congressmen Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) issued a press release yesterday on a startling discovery they made during a July 17 meeting with International Atomic Energy Agency officials in Vienna: 
There are two secret side deals to the nuclear agreement with Iran that will not be shared with other nations, with Congress, or with the U.S. public. 
One of these side deals concerns inspection of the Parchin military base, where Iran reportedly has conducted explosive testing related to nuclear-warhead development. 
The Iranian government has refused to allow the IAEA to visit this site. Over the last several years, Iran has taken steps to clean up evidence of weapons-related activity at Parchin.

ISIS Vows To “Fill The Streets Of Paris With Dead Bodies”

We Enthusiastically Anticipate 
Negotiating With You 
Regarding The Terms of Our Surrender 

From Vocativ:
ISIS’ official media wing in Syria’s Hama province published a video Wednesday showing a French-speaking militant shooting a Syrian army prisoner and declaring that the Islamic State “will fill the streets of Paris with dead bodies.” 
The ISIS militant addressed his “message” to the French, the international community and “everyone who fights Allah and his prophet,” proclaiming that the Islamic State loves death “like you love life.” 
The video followed the Tuesday publication of ISIS’ French-language propaganda magazine. In the latest edition, the group called on Muslims to follow in the footsteps of Yassin Salhi—the van driver who carried out a horrific attack last month near Lyon, France. 
The magazine provided readers with a detailed description of the attack, which took place at a gas factory when Salhi drove his truck into a chemical plant and beheaded his boss. ISIS did not claim responsibility for the violent incident but encouraged similar individual assaults, calling on Muslims to “hit the interests of the enemies of Allah.”
The French for their part, seem excited at the prospect of once agains being forced to surrender.

A Bit Of Good News

Oregon's largest mosque, situated in Portland
So far, only an attempt to take the proper step. Let's see how this flies when it gets to court.

From FBI-ICE investigation prompted U.S. to attempt to revoke citizenship of imam who heads Portland's biggest mosque (July 20, 2015):
"The U.S. Department of Justice is pursuing Mr. (Mohamed Sheikh Abdirahman) Kariye's denaturalization based on his illegal procurement of naturalization; specifically, Mr. Kariye obtained his U.S. citizenship by providing false information and willful misrepresentation and concealment of material facts including his criminal history and failed to establish that he was a person of good moral character during the requisite statutory period," the FBI wrote in a news statement....

Court papers filed Monday in Portland show that Justice Department officials hope to win denaturalization of the Somali-born imam's citizenship because he allegedly tried to conceal past associations with Islamic groups in Pakistan and Afghanistan....
Read the rest HERE.

The Islamic Center of Portland, where he is the imam, is the largest mosque in Oregon.

Pay attention and be firm and proactive if you have an insect bite and a rash

On or about 6/20 my wife had an insect bite. By the 24th this bite which had the appearance at the site of being a bad mosquito bite, was surrounded by a nearly perfect circular ‘rash’ raised and red, about 8-10 inches in DIAMETER!

It was hot to the touch, with the bite just off center. She also had a degree or two of temp, and flu like symptoms.

Time for research on respectable sites before rushing off.

Here is the result of that research which we have BEFORE visiting the primary care physician.
  • The county we live in is at higher, but not the highest risk for Lyme
  • Only 42% of patients who had Lyme in a CDC 2104 paper had the bulls-eye ‘target’ rash. MANY had a rash similar to my wife’s.
  • Usually greater than 2” inches in diameter, often 6-8” Rarely bull’s eye, usually uniformly red
  • ALL patients complained of flu like symptoms
  • Lyme disease is a clinical diagnosis made by a doctor or nurse by examining the patient..lab test are NOT POSSIBLE at the outset
  • Acute Lyme disease is not a laboratory diagnosis; a negative Lyme blood test does not exclude Lyme disease in the first few weeks of the illness.
  • 20% of people have a flu-like illness and NO rash.
  • Fever, aches, and abrupt severe fatigue can be the main symptoms of acute Lyme.
  • Lyme disease WILL affect disparate body systems, INCLUDING the heart, among others
  • The MAJORITY of Lyme diagnoses occur in May-June in the Northeast
So, we have rash, flu like symptoms, fatigue, and armed with info from Mayo, CDC, and various other scholarly articles SUCH AS THIS off to the doctor.

I tell my wife as we go, ‘if I was a doctor and you walked in the door, since the clinical diagnosis MUST be on observation and symptoms, sorry but I would be compelled to treat you as if you had Lyme’. She is scared. So am I.

The Dr. REFUSES to accept that this MIGHT be Lyme (”I KEEP UP ON ALL THIS AND THIS ISN’T LYME’), insists it is contact dermatitis and a virus, and will not Rx the Lyme antibiotic, Doxycycline (which has been around since the 70′s), instead recommends Advil, Tylenol and patience and an Rx for a different antibiotic in case the fever spiked (it did), thus ‘proving’ it is a bacterial infection of other origin, and a steroid cream for the contact dermatitis.

Long story short, symptoms rapidly accelerated and the Physician Assistant did a Lyme test after several weeks, by which time, my wife could not sit down, lie down, sleep, eat, drink, and was continuously rubbing her legs in pain and whimpering. Still the PCP maintained ‘post viral syndrome’ and patience. Normal lab tests are all stone cold normal.

Almost THREE WEEKS and FOUR Dr visits have now taken place. The length of the Rx for doxycycline treatment for Lyme disease? 3 weeks.

The following morning we went to the ER.

I bring the lab tests, pictures of the rash at its worst, and the internist looks at the labs the pic, listens to my wife for less than 2 minutes, turns to me and says, ‘this is a picture of Lyme, and we are going to start treatment NOW’.

By now my wife is totally dehydrated and weak, and without sleep for 4 nights.

3 hours later the PA at our doctors office calls me and with a shaking voice informs me the test for Lyme is POSITIVE.

On day 3 of the hospital her calcium levels drop so far, her heart’s electrical system begins to go out of sync. She has had thryoid cancer, and her parathyroid glands were removed and replanted but they are dead so ALL the calcium she needs must be taken via pills. The PCP knows all this. It’s so far out of sync she goes on 24 hours monitoring. To control the symptoms, this is what was required, Dilaudid and Compazine at 2 and 6 hours interval in the IV, and Vicodin. It’s basically induced semi-conscious state. By day FIVE in the hospital the Lyme symptoms have regressed and we are all about the dangerous calcium levels, whose results can be sudden death as the valves and ventricles of the heart go so far our sync it all crashes.

It takes THREE more days and an endocrine oncologist from Mass General to get quasi control of this.

EIGHT DAYS in the hospital which were 100% avoidable had the doxycycline been prescribed AS THE CDC RECOMMENDED the outset. My wife came home yesterday and we have lab visits all week in a ‘science experiment’ to find the new calcium dosages she needs every day, because Lyme has changed her physiological situation from the STABLE situation it was in for TWENTY YEARS.

I have often been called a son of a bitch in medical situations regarding my wife because of my background, and our experiences with some dunces. Yet still, THIS unfolded.

Needless to say, we have ‘fired’ that GP office. I’m sure he can ‘defend’ himself in that it was his clinical judgment it was not Lyme and you can’t drag someone through court for an honest and defensible error, but my wife is OBJECTIVELY WEAKENED and I’m sure we’re out THOUSANDS.

So, if you have a large rash, and it’s itchy and hot, and there are flu like symptoms, and you are in a high risk area, get your doc to Rx the right antibiotic because the risks FAR outweigh taking an antibiotic for no reason,. and if he turns stubborn, GET ANOTHER OPINION OR DOC RIGHT THEN.

From the Atlantic:
The city is fighting to keep videos of the May shootout at the Twin Peaks restaurant out of the press, and still hasn’t confirmed how many victims were shot by police.
Why is Waco, Texas, fighting to suppress multiple videos of the shootout that killed nine bikers at the Twin Peaks restaurant on May 17? Why are some attorneys in the case now prohibited from talking to the press? And why haven’t Waco officials revealed how many of the nine victims were killed by bullets from police officers’ guns? 
These are the most pressing questions as 177 people await a grand jury’s decision about whether they will be indicted for murder, conspiracy, or on lesser charges after attending a regularly scheduled meeting of motorcycle enthusiasts that turned violent. Attendees included members of violent-outlaw motorcycle gangs and innocuous clubs. 
Many members of both groups credibly claim that they had nothing to do with a fight at the meeting. 
An Associated Press review of surveillance footage not yet released to the public suggests that most present fled from the gunfire rather than participating in it. Over the last two months, motorcyclists swept up in the mass arrest following the carnage have lost jobs, been evicted from apartments, and even lost custody of children. 
And every day that authorities continue their opposition to sunlight in the case delays vindication for the innocents who’ve had their lives upended. The state loses little by dragging its feet while accused innocents pay dearly.
Worrisome aspects of the case include:
  • Waco and its police department could be liable for millions of dollars in damages if litigants can prove that they arrested bikers without probable cause, violating their civil rights; or that Waco police shot and killed innocents. Yet the grand jury that will decide whether to indict the bikers is reportedly being led by a longtime detective in the Waco police department––an arrangement defended by a local judge, who declared, “If there is nothing that challenges his impartiality, he is qualified … Who is better qualified in criminal law than somebody who practices it all the time?”
  • When one of the arrested bikers, Matthew Clendennen, sued authorities, Waco’s assistant city attorney fought to prevent him from getting access to video footage taken at the Twin Peaks restaurant, key evidence in the incident. While a judge ultimately ruled that his attorney must be allowed to see the footage, he barred its release to the public and imposed a gag order in the case.
  • The gag order was requested by McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna, who is named in Clendennen’s federal civil-rights suit––and granted by District Court Judge Matt Johnson, Reyna’s former law partner, according to press reports.
  • Over two months have passed since the shooting. The dead bodies have long since been examined. Yet the public still hasn’t been told how many of the gunshot victims were struck by bullets fired from police weapons. (I strongly suspect that if the answer was “zero” Waco police would’ve said so a long time ago.)
Why is this information being suppressed?After all, evidence that is embarrassing to the Waco Police Department or that exposes the city of Waco to civil liability will presumably be made public eventually. 
Here are two theories. 
One is the official explanation. Authorities say that this is a complex investigation that takes lots of time and that suppressing video evidence and issuing gag orders is necessary to prevent prospective jurors from being influenced by pre-trial publicity.I find that explanation dubious. 
Authorities in Waco have actively advanced a contested narrative of what happened at the Twin Peaks restaurant from the start, sometimes getting facts wrong. They haven’t tried to preserve the impartiality of jurors, instead, they've pushed a version of events that reflects well on the Waco police and the actions they’ve taken. 
Here is an alternative explanation. 
If there is video or ballistics evidence suggesting that lots of innocent people were arrested without probable cause, or that police bullets killed some of the dead that day in Waco, it will be a public-relations nightmare and a huge liability for Waco and its police department. Scores of bikers could sue for six- or seven-figure sums. And prosecutors might find it much more difficult to secure indictments in the case. 
But if indictments can be filed before evidence inconvenient to Waco authorities is publicly revealed, the leverage changes. A biker might be indicted for conspiracy to murder, then offered a plea deal to accept a much lesser charge, like disturbing the peace, with the understanding that time served would take care of the sentence. That would be a tempting deal to take. And pleading guilty to disturbing the peace would preclude a lawsuit for being arrested without probable cause while saving police and prosecutors from looking like they harassed innocents. 
That alternative explanation may not be correct, but it’s plausible enough to justify concern. And the change in leverage between prosecutors and criminal defendants applies whether or not it is motivating authorities. 
A final question law enforcement should be forced to answer, as the many criminal and civil lawsuits likely to stem from this case are adjudicated, is how many undercover cops and informants, if any, were present at Twin Peaks that day, and what role, if any, they played in altercations between various motorcycle riders. (My confidence in the Waco Police Department’s performance was not enhanced by the news that one police officer reportedly present at the scene has since been put on leave for allegedly assaulting a Waco resident in an unrelated matter.) 
Scores of likely innocents arrested, suppressed video, clear conflicts of interest in the courts, and the possibility that multiple shooting victims died at the hands of police––the aftermath of the Waco shootout ought to be a prominent part of the ongoing national conversation about a criminal-justice system that routinely victimizes innocents. And by the time the truth outs, perhaps that will come to pass. 

I'm glad The Atlantic has published this.

But I wonder why they did not post this information, which I found at The Aging Rebel the other day. Maybe they simply are not aware of this:


Watch 42:37

From the Aging Rebel:
The most chilling sequence in the video begins at 1:20:50 p.m. Two plain clothes operators stand under the Don Carlos porch and point toward what seems to be the dead body. 
Six seconds later one of the operators, a gray haired man wearing a light orange shirt and a machine gun, walks toward the apparent body. 
He disappears briefly as he talks to a uniformed cop at about 1:21:07 p.m. 
Then at 1:21:35 he clearly and unmistakably places something on the ground of this crime scene. 
Then he quickly walks away. 
At 1:59:31 p.m. a uniformed officer walks over to the evidence planted by the plain clothes cop and marks it as evidence.Presumably, it is now part of the official case against the 177 men and women who were arrested but not “unarrested.”
Aging Rebel comments:
Waco isn’t going away. If America survives, a hundred years from now, schoolchildren will write essays about what has been happening in the Lone Star State for the last two months. The whole world is watching. It is time for officials in Waco to realize the spotlight is not going to turn itself off.

ISIS Lures People By Promises Of Cheap Ice In Sweltering Conditions, Then Blows Up 115 People With Truckload Of Explosives

Just the way Allah would have wanted it.
Islamic State barbarians fighting in Iraq lured scores of sweltering citizens to surround a lorry purportedly selling discounted ice before blowing it up and killing 115 people. 
A terrorist drove a vehicle packed with more than three tonnes of explosives into the busy market area of Khan Bani Saad, north of the capital Baghdad, on what was a scorching Friday afternoon. 
In what is considered one of deadliest attacks in Iraq this decade, the driver called on hundreds of locals to gather around the vehicle, telling them he was selling ice at a heavily discounted price in celebration of Eid al-Fitr – the feast that ends the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. 
Although ice was visible on the back of the truck, more than three tonnes of explosives were hidden beneath it. 
The explosion caused by the deadly load being detonated by the Islamic extremist killed 115 innocent people, injured scores more and left a massive crater in the floor of the marketplace.

Martin O'Malley: You Know, Climate Change Created ISIS

From Real Clear Politics:
One of the things that preceded the failure of the nation state of Syria and the rise of ISIS, was the effect of climate change and the mega-drought that affected that nation, wiped out farmers, drove people to cities, created a humanitarian crisis that created the symptoms -- or rather, the conditions -- of extreme poverty that has now led to the rise of ISIS and this extreme violence.

Muslims Are Worried About a "Backlash"

Muslims don't condemn the latest ISIS atrocity. They don't condemn calls for Jihad. They don't condemn the subjugation of women in Islamic countries. They don't condemn the murderous anti-Semitism in the Palestinian territories.

But they do condemn the non-existent "Backlash" against Muslims.

Tennessee jihadist's uncle jailed in Jordan

The uncle of the Chattanooga jihadist has been put in police custody in Jordan:
An uncle of the man who killed four Marines and a sailor in attacks on Tennessee military sites has been in custody in Jordan since a day after the attack, a lawyer said Tuesday.

Abed al-Kader Ahmad al-Khateeb told The Associated Press that he was barred from seeing his client and that family members were also prevented from visiting the detainee. Computers and cellphones were taken from the man's home, but he has not been charged with anything, the attorney said.

Al-Khateeb identified his client as Asaad Ibrahim Asaad Haj Ali, a maternal uncle of the Chattanooga attacker, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.

A Jordanian government official said Tuesday that some of Abdulazeez's relatives in Jordan were being questioned as part of an investigation into his stay in the kingdom. He would not elaborate on the probe.

The official said he was sure the uncle and "other relevant people" are being questioned, but that he did not know whether he was in detention. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case with the media.

Abdulazeez spent several months in Jordan last year under a mutual agreement with his parents to help him get away from drugs, alcohol and a group of friends his relatives considered a bad influence, according to a person close to his family. That person also spoke on condition of anonymity out of concern it would have business repercussions.
What? That part is laughable. He stays away from alcohol and drugs, but not the Koran? Then it's clear they never intended to reshape him into somebody better. It's about as effective as trying to get a standard western racist off of alcohol but not acts of violence and hooliganism against people of different ethnicities. If the ideological part isn't dealt with, then no wonder reformation is doomed to failure.

So that's his mentality...

I looked at a few tweets by "Notintheface1", that distasteful Illinois denizen who's got lenient views on Islam again, and found some more to ponder. For example:

*Whistles* This male really is following in the footsteps of Satmar's Joel and Aaron Teitelbaum, isn't he? I'm not posting this because I think Netanyahu is a saint, but rather, because I find Notintheface1's ignorance of Iran's dictatorship and all that's wrong with it reprehensible. I guess he also sees nothing wrong with the horrific abuse Betty and Mahtob Mahmoody suffered when their disgusting husband/father took them to that hellhole in the mid-80s? Tsk tsk tsk. That's certainly the impression one can get after reading what these charlatans say. One can only wonder what he thinks of apostates from Islam too. Blecch.

When somebody doesn't have it in them to abhor what an autocracy does with its own subjects, it should come as no surprise when they can't feel worried about what they'll do to foreigners either, at close range or long distance. And if Notintheface1 is so heartless, then he has no business reading Jewish-created comics either. No joke.

Obama Deal: US to Protect Iranian Nuclear Sites from Israeli Attack

The Jewish Press:
The agreement states: Co-operation…to strengthen Iran’s ability to prevent, protect and respond to nuclear security threats to nuclear facilities and to protect against… sabotage. 
“ObamaDeal” explicitly states that the United States and the other P5+1 powers can help Iran deflect and even “respond” to sabotage and nuclear threats to its nuclear sites. 
The damming evidence that ObamaDeal directly allows Western powers to help Iran to protect its nuclear sites, and possibly even to stage a counter-attack on the source of the threat, is stated in Annex III of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). 
Congress is reviewing the agreement and has the option to cancel America’s commitments under the deal. 
You have to reach page 142 of the JCPOA until you reach “Annex III: Civil Nuclear Cooperation,” where Section “D 10 states that the P5+1 “and possibly other states are prepared to cooperate with Iran on the implementation of nuclear security guidelines and best practices. Cooperation in the following areas can be envisaged. 
Sure enough. Page 142 of the Obama nuclear agreement reads: 
Co-operation in the form of training courses and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to prevent, protect and respond to nuclear security threats to nuclear facilities and systems as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems [boldface added]; Co-operation through training and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to protect against, and respond to nuclear security threats, including sabotage, as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems.

Obama's Inexcusable Response To The Chattanooga Jihad Attack

Eli Arnold is pictured planting a flag outside the Chattanooga National Guard recruitment center targeted by Mohammed Youssef Abdulazeez.

From No explanation by Obama on flags not lowered to half-staff for Chattanooga shootings (dated July 20, 2015):
The White House provided no explanation Monday amid questions over why the president had not ordered flags across the nation to half-staff in the wake of a Chattanooga, Tenn., shooting that killed five servicemembers.

Spokesman Josh Earnest said President Barack Obama offered condolences last week and may speak to veterans at VFW conference Tuesday about the shooting, but he had no further comment.

Obama has issued presidential proclamations that lowered flags at federal facilities and military bases after many mass shootings, including attacks at the Washington Navy Yard, Fort Hood in Texas, and Sandy Hook elementary in Connecticut. The lack of a proclamation following the deaths of four Marines and sailor in a possible terrorist attack Thursday by a 24-year-old Muslim man rankled some and spark online outrage.

“I don’t have more information about the status of the flag over the White House,” Earnest said, responding to a question at a daily briefing Monday with the press....
Read the rest HERE.

Let us remember that Obama ordered the lowering of United States flags when Nelson Mandela died in 2013. But not for five of our servicemen slaughtered right here on our home soil? GRRRRRR!

General Wesley Clark says Muslims in America considered potential enemies of the state should be sent to detention camps

From BNI:
I hear Gitmo’s got a lot of extra room right now. Clark says: “During World War II, if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn’t say that was ‘freedom of speech.’ We put them in a camp,” Clark continued, “They were prisoners of war.”

Scientist: ‘Most of the scientific claims cited in Pope’s encyclical are not true’

Read the Full Article
Climate Statistician Dr. William Briggs: 'For example, the claim that the world’s temperature has been increasing is demonstrably false: it hasn’t, and not for almost two decades. Another is the claim that storms are increasing in size and strength: also false; indeed, the opposite is true. Another is the claim that thousands of species are going extinct: false, and easily proved to be so. Another is…but you get the idea. 
Most of the scientific claims cited in Laudato are not true.'

Millions and Millions of Mohammeds

From Daniel Greenfield:
Before Mohammad Youssduf Adulazeer shot up a military recruiting center in Chattanooga from a car and then sped away, another Mohammed, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad did much the same thing in 2009. Both struck military recruiting centers in the South, but the 2009 Mohammed had a message for Americans that we unfortunately failed to heed. 
"This is not the first attack, and won't be the last," Muhammad warned. “I'm just one Muhammad. There are millions of Muhammads out there. And I hope and pray the next one be more deadlier than Muhammad Atta!” 
There are millions of Mohammeds out there. It took exactly six years for one of them to finish what his predecessor started. In a world with lots of Mohammeds, we really need to consider whether we want Mohammed becoming the most common name for a boy in America, as it already has in countries like the UK. 
The murderous Mohammeds embody the values of the original Mohammed, the founder of their brutal ideology. They kill like him. They kill in his name. 
A country with more Mohammeds, is a country with more Muslim terrorism.

I'm Afraid of Soldiers With Big Guns

From Punditarian at the Astute Bloggers:
In the wake of the jihadist terror attack on unarmed military recruiters at offices in civilian neighborhoods, US Army Chief of Staff Ray Odierno said he did not think that American armed forces personnel should be allowed to bear arms for self defense: 
"I think we have to be careful about over-arming ourselves, and I'm not talking about where you end up attacking each other," Gen. Ray Odierno, chief of staff of the Army, told reporters. Instead, he said, it's more about "accidental discharges and everything else that goes along with having weapons that are loaded that causes injuries." 
If his soldiers are not trained sufficently well to carry personal sidearms that millions of American civilians can safely carry, or if he thinks his soldiers are too stupid to be armed to defend themselves, then that is a withering indictment of the Army's entire training program, and everyone responsible, including the Chief of Staff, should be forced to resign immediately.
He is obviously afraid of guns, and yet he is one of the top Generals in our Armed Forces.

How did he get there?

Fuckin' pansy.

Barack Hussein Obama wants the end of Ramadan to become a public holiday

Barack Obama - Homo For Allah


From Yahoo France (via Google Translate):
The President of the United States wished, Thursday, July 16, a "Happy Eid" to all Muslims. A kind word in anticipation of the feast of Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of fasting. 
Barack Obama took the opportunity to say they want to make this an official holiday in the future to remind all Americans of the importance of respect for all beliefs. "Happy Eid! ". 
It is in these terms that the President of the United States wished, Thursday, July 16, a good feast of Eid el-Fitr to all Muslims. This traditional festival officially marks the end of Ramadan, after a month of fasting. 
Barack Obama took the opportunity to declare his wish to see this day become an official holiday because it would be "a way to remind all Americans that it is important to respect all beliefs and religion," he said in a statement*. 
For the latter, the 44th President of the United States wished to commend the initiative of the city of New York, who recently decided to add two Muslim holidays with days off in its schools. New York holidays for Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. 
The mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, has in fact decided to make public for the two Muslim holidays schoolchildren: Eid al-Fitr and Eid el-Kebir. The measure will be effective from the beginning of September. Incidentally, Barack Obama still says: "It is a recognition of diversity and inclusiveness which add to the wealth of our nation."

I prefer to end Islam and create a holiday ...one which every victim class of Islam can celebrate across the globe for eternity.

The Muslims Are Restless

A suicidal muderer killed 130 in Iraq in honor of one of their holidays by blowing up himself and his truck in a crowded marketplace.

Lib'n leftie apologists and appeasers promptly called the mass murderer a misunderstander of islam. As they call the Chattanooga murderer.

There have been more than 21,000 terrorist attacks since 9/11 done in the name of islam. Thousands murdered. Thousands maimed.

Libs'n lefties all call all these perps misunderstanders of islam.

The libs'n lefties call islam a religion of peace, and tell us not to worry and learn to love the koran.

Well, I don't think the libs'n lefties know islam better than the radicals. And I don't think islam is so difficult to understand.

In fact, if the terrorists who committed these attacks misunderstood islam, then so did Mohamed PBUH, (because they are emulating him) - and if he did, then islam is a sham because he invented it.
