‘Objective’ media celebrated Wendy Davis, slams Cruz

3013501-poster-1920-leadership-lessons-from-wendy-davis-dramatic-filibusterAs the media struggle to come up with an effective counter for Senator Ted Cruz’s 22-hour quasi-filibuster against Obamacare, they have turned more and more to outright mockery. That mockery comes in marked contrast to their worshipful attitude toward Texas state senator Wendy Davis’ filibuster of a Texas pro-life bill that banned abortion after 20 weeks. Davis’ filibuster brought near-orgasmic attention from the mainstream press.

Breitbart (Sep 25) — The Associated Press tweeted a #StandWithWendy hashtag during Davis’ filibuster; they did no such thing with Cruz’s quasi-filibuster. CNN profiled Davis with the headline, “Wendy Davis: From teen mom to Harvard Law to famous filibuster”; CNN’s headline today reads, “Obamacare survives,” with sub-headline “Hear Cruz cite Seuss.” The New York Times ran a piece titled, “Spotlight on Wendy Davis, the Democrats’ Big Hope,” another piece calling her “the Charm” and another titled “In Texas, a Senator’s Stand Catches the Spotlight”; today, the Times ran a sneering editorial labeling Cruz an “embarrassment.” After Davis’ filibuster, she was asked tough questions from CNN’s Anderson Cooper: “How are you even awake today? What was it like standing for that long? It was a remarkable scene. Did you have any idea that it would grow like this?” Today, CNN journalists openly mocked Cruz. ABC News reported on Davis, “3 Things Wendy Davis Accomplished With Her Filibuster; on Cruz, ABC News reported, “Cruz Quotes ‘Duck Dynasty,’ Toby Keith in Night-Long Attack on Obamacare.” The Washington Post wrote “6 Key Moments From Wendy Davis’ Filibuster”; they also ran “The best of Ted Cruz’s marathon speech,” complete with Ashton Kutcher, Dr. Seuss, and White Castle.

The bias is so bad that even Dylan Byers of Politico noted, “you can forgive conservatives for being upset with the mainstream media’s coverage of the Cruz affair. When a Democrat like Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis filibusters against abortion restrictions, she is elevated to hero status, her tennis shoes become totems. When Cruz grandstands against Obamacare, he is a laughingstock.”

The only folks proving themselves a laughingstock are the so-called objective voices of the mainstream media.

Al Qaeda-linked Syria group enjoying USAID?

If this image is real, then it confirms the worst fears about U.S. aid to Syria falling into the hands of terrorists:

KavkazUSAidThe Blaze (Sep 24) — Recent images from the front line of the Syrian war suggest that terrorists are enjoying the small comforts of U.S. equipment and supplies that are meant to aide legitimate rebels, who are part of the Free Syrian Army. This appears to prove all the concerns among U.S. lawmakers and analysts that aid to the Syrian rebels could end up in the hands of Al Qaeda.

The photograph allegedly shows Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) linked Commander Muhajireen Kavkaz wa Sham, along with other rebels dawning battle-gear and an RPG, inside a USAID tent.

The terror group is known inside Syria by its acronym, ISIS. It is an Al Qaeda-linked jihad organization and recently it announced a campaign of “cleansing evil” at pro-Western opposition groups inside Syria.

The authenticity and location of this photo obtained by TheBlaze, which is circulating on the web, has not been officially confirmed. U.S. officials, however, told TheBlaze that this rebel commander is believed to be in Syria at this time.

Hero: Former British marine ‘saved 100 people’ from Kenya mall armed only with a handgun

A former British Royal Marine is being hailed as a hero for saving up to 100 people from the Kenya shopping mall terror attack using only a handgun, the U.K.’s Daily Mail reported.

The ex-soldier, who reportedly cannot be named due to security reasons, was having coffee at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi when armed Islamic militants attacked on Saturday.

Witnesses said he went into action, returning to the building a dozen times and leading about 100 people to safety, according to the U.K.’s The Independent.

The former marine’s actions were revealed after he was photographed leading two women with what appeared to be a gun tucked into his pants, according to the Daily Mail.

mall-British-620x399“What he did was so heroic … he went back in 12 times and saved 100 people,” a friend of the man told The Independent. “Imagine going back in when you knew what was going on inside.”

The Independent reported that the man lives in Kenya full-time, a common practice for former Royal Marines after their service in east Africa.

More than 60 people have been confirmed killed by members of the Al Qaeda-linked Somali terrorist group al-Shabab.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz ends anti-Obamacare floor speech after 21 hours

6de5a49c126a499c8943caead1453997-e1380117041769After more than 21 hours on the Senate floor, Sen. Ted Cruz wrapped up his marathon speech against ObamaCare at noon on Wednesday — though, as expected, it did not stop the chamber from proceeding to a controversial test vote.

The speech amounted to a final act of political theater before the vote. As he concluded, Cruz said to the American people: “This debate’s in your hands.” He told reporters afterward that the debate isn’t about the bill itself but about “whether Washington was going to listen to the American people.”

Cruz had attracted a rotating set of supporters by sunrise, as they joined him on the floor in blasting the health care law.

Cruz, R-Texas, had declared Tuesday afternoon that he intended to speak in opposition to ObamaCare “until I am no longer able to stand.”

“ObamaCare isn’t working,” he said. “There are politicians in this body who are not listening to the people.”

The feisty senator spoke through the night. His topics ranged from the American revolution and the Washington establishment to his Cuban-born father and the impact of the health care law.

Syrian Army soldiers rescue 16-year-old girl who was pimped out by her FSA father to the rebels

It’s called ‘Sex Jihad.’ Women prostitute themselves to FSA rebels as a way to help the war effort. In this case, the teen girl’s father allowed fellow FSA rebels to rape her on multiple occasions, and her mother warned her to shut up and not tell anyone about it.

Syrian children already know how to ‘behead the enemy’

These future terrorists for Allah will be ready for their first real beheading at around age 12 or 13.

Apparently they are being influenced by the Obama-backed al-Qaeda-linked FSA jihadist rebels. Beheadings are their signature, not Bashar Assad’s. See links below.

Terrorist: Nairobi Mall Targeted Because of ‘Jewish Shops’

Member of terrorist group that took over a mall in Nairobi said it was targeted because of its ‘Jewish shops,’ among other reasons.

Kenyan soldiers fight terrorists in Westgate Mall

Kenyan soldiers fight terrorists in Westgate Mall

Arutz Sheva (Sep 23) — As Kenyan military forces moved to liberate Nairobi’s Westgate Mall from the hands of Islamist terrorists, a representative of Al-Shabaab, the Somali terror group behind the attack, told Arab satellite network Al Jazeera that the attack was overdue, and that the mall was chosen for the attack because “it is a place where there are Jewish and American shops.”

The attack, which began Saturday, was still underway Tuesday, with the terrorists holed up in the building, holding a number of hostages. At least 69 people have been killed so far, as Kenyan soldiers try to remove the Islamists who are occupying the building.

The Islamist group attacked the mall – a place where innocent civilians shop – because “it is a place where tourists from across the world come to shop, where diplomats gather. It is a place where Kenya’s decision-makers go to relax and enjoy themselves.” As the group demands the imposition of Islamic law in Kenya and the removal of all Western influences – and tourists – Al Shabaab felt justified in attacking the site, the terrorist spokesperson said.

In addition, he said, the attack was justified revenge against the Kenyan government for its actions against other Islamists.

“On civilian deaths, Kenya should first be asked why they bombed innocent Somali civilians in refugee camps, why they bombed innocent people in Gedo and Jubba regions. They should be asked that first before us,” he said, adding that the group had freed all Muslims before taking over the mall.

The Westgate mall is owned by an Israeli group, as are several of the stores; the attackers first entered the mall through an Israeli-owned coffee shop.

Great Gutfeld monologue on Islamic terror followed by a liberal’s anti-Muslim rant

Bob Beckel, the liberal co-host of “The Five,” went off on a tirade against “moderate Muslims” who refuse to “stand up and be counted” by denouncing horrific terrorist attacks “in the name of your prophet.”

Reacting to the massacre at the Kenya shopping mall, Beckel said “the time has come for you to stand up and say something,” referring again to “moderate Muslims in the United States.

“I repeat what I said before. No Muslim students coming here with visas. No more mosques being build here until you stand up and denounce what’s happened in the name of your prophet.”

He also urged “Muslims in this country” and “other people around the world to stand up and be counted.”

“If you can’t,” he said, “you’re cowards.”

Jihad group says that Muslims from Minnesota, Missouri, Illinois, Maine, and Arizona among Kenya mall jihad murderers

If this turns out to be true, it will raise important questions about what the mosques these men attended are preaching and teaching, and what law enforcement was doing among Muslims in the areas from which they came. The only problem is that no one will ask those questions.

“Illinois, Maine, Arizona Muslims among Kenyan Mall Massacre killers,” from Creeping Sharia, September 23:

Video: Iranian president brags about deceiving the West

380ba9ba962d4ac7a98c41ad17434c8b-e1379696521265Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has gone on a charm offensive lately with multiple interviews with American media promising collaboration, but a recent video shows he takes pride in deceiving the West.

“Gone is the age of blood feuds,” Rouhani stated in an op-ed in the Washington Post. “World leaders are expected to lead in turning threats into opportunities,” he wrote in the Post Friday.

In interviews with ABC and NBC, Rouhani said that Iran will never develop nuclear weapons and that he has the authority to make a deal with the West. “In its nuclear program, this government enters with full power and has complete authority,” Rouhani said. “Under no circumstances would we seek any weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons, nor will we ever.”

Despite the recent charm offensive in the American media, a recently revealed video of an interview prior to the June Iranian election shows him bragging how he, in his role as Iran’s top nuclear negotiator, deceived the West during negotiations on Iran’s illicit nuclear program even as Iran expanded its nuclear power. At the same time, Rouhani managed to relieve pressure by the West, especially in convincing the Europeans to avert possible military aggression by the Bush administration

“The day that we invited the three European ministers [to the talks], only 10 centrifuges were spinning at [the Iranian nuclear facility of] Natanz,” Rouhani boasted on the tape. “We could not produce one gram of U4 or U6 [uranium hexafluoride]. … We did not have the heavy-water production. We could not produce yellow cake. Our total production of centrifuges inside the country was 150.”

But then Rowhani admitted in the video the purpose of prolonging negotiations: “We wanted to complete all of these — we needed time.”

In the interview, Rouhani said that after he took over the country’s nuclear project, the country’s 150 centrifuges grew to over 1,700 by the time he left the project.

Egypt bans Muslim Brotherhood

CAIRO (AP Sep 23) — An Egyptian court on Monday ordered the Muslim Brotherhood to be banned and its assets confiscated in a dramatic escalation of a crackdown by the military-backed government against supporters of the ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi.

The ruling opens the door for a wider crackdown on the vast network of the Brotherhood, which includes social organizations that have been key for building the group’s grassroots support and helping its election victories. The verdict banned the group itself – including the official association it registered under earlier this year – as well as “any institution branching out of it or … receiving financial support from it,” according to the court ruling, made public on Egypt’s state official news agency MENA.

The judge at the Cairo Court for Urgent Matters also ordered the “confiscation of all the group’s money, assets, and buildings” and said that an independent committee should be formed by the Cabinet to manage the money until final court orders are issued. The verdict can be appealed.

The Brotherhood was outlawed for most of its 85 years in existence. But after the 2011 ouster of autocrat Hosni Mubarak, it was allowed to work openly, formed a political party and rose to power in a string of post-Mubarak elections. In March, it registered as a recognized non-governmental organization.

Israeli forces join effort to free hostages and end jihad attack at Kenya mall

“The Israelis have just entered and they are rescuing the hostages and the injured.” The world’s scapegoat once again comes to the rescue. No word from Barack Obama, meanwhile, on sending any help. He is too busy aiding the jihadist brethren of these Somali jihad murderers in Syria.

“Unknown number of hostages held || Report: Israeli forces join effort to end deadly siege at Kenya mall,” from Haaretz, September 22:

Israeli forces have reportedly joined efforts to end a deadly siege by Somali militants at a Kenyan shopping mall, a security source told AFP Sunday.

“The Israelis have just entered and they are rescuing the hostages and the injured,” AFP quoted the sourec [sic] as saying on condition he not be named. Meanwhile, an Israeli source told Reuters that Israeli advisers are helping with the “negotiating strategy” to end the mall standoff.

Hamas-linked CAIR collects millions from foreign donors thanks to non-profit shell game

caircontributionsDaily Caller (September 21) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) conceals donations from overseas through a series of shell organizations, according to documents from court actions involving the Muslim advocacy group.

Since its founding in 1994, CAIR has presented itself to American Muslims and the media as a single organization centered on American concerns. But it shows a different face to the IRS, with multiple corporate entities that conceal the large financial donations that come to CAIR from Middle East sources.

As a registered lobbying group, CAIR is required to report to the IRS contributions over $5,000. Its shifting 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) branches, however, make it possible to collect millions of dollars from oil-rich Muslim nations without disclosure. Documents show CAIR has received millions of dollars in overseas contributions and tens of millions in pledges from overseas.
