    When last seen in coverage at NewsBusters, Anjem Choudary was sparring with Sean Hannity while claiming that ISIS atrocities are a Western "falsehood" and that one day Islamic Sharia will be implemented "in the whole world one day."

    Before getting to his latest stunt on CNN's Reliable Sources program with host Brian Stelter, it's important to provide some context, simply because Choudary described at Wikipedia as a "Muslim social and political activist" has already said that "if you had a sense of humor, maybe you would have laughed" at how he conducted the mic check before his interview.

    NewsBusters blogs | 31 Aug 2014 | 2:29 pm MDT

    The Washington Post’s Kent Babb is one of those sports reporters who has to impose secular-progressive politics on the sports world, which he perceives as backward. Last spring, he was pushing for “inclusion” into the NFL for gay football player Michael Sam: “If Sam is not on an active roster when the season begins in early September, there’s likely to be much more discussion about whether America itself is more accepting of gays than its sports teams.”   

    On the front of Sunday's sports section, Babb lamented there’s “No separation of church, college football in the South.” He summarized that "To many, the merging of cultural forces feels natural; to others, the most stark instances are uncomfortable — maybe even inappropriate." Babb began with Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze:

  109. Restricting 'Choice': California Dictates That its Employers Cannot Refuse to Cover Elective Abortions

    NewsBusters blogs | 31 Aug 2014 | 8:21 am MDT

    This "choice" thing with abortion is really the narrowest of one-way streets.

    Seven robed men decided in 1973 that a woman has a "privacy" right to "choose" to take the life of a pre-born baby she is carrying, the God-given right to life of the baby be damned. But the radicals in Jerry Brown's government in the State of California have now mandated that all employers in that state, even those with religious affiliations, do not have a choice as to whether they will cover abortions in their health plans. It's funny, but certainly not in a humorous sense, how certain states' attempts to limit the practice routinely make national news, while this blatantly coercive dictate by California has barely been noticed.

    “When the hysteria abates, I believe the events in Gaza will not be remembered by the world as particularly important. People were killed, most of them Palestinians, including many unarmed innocents. I wish I could say the tragedy of their deaths, or the deaths of Israel’s soldiers, will change something, that they mark a turning point. But they don’t.”  The importance lies in the tone of international press coverage:

  150. Hillary Clinton On Ferguson: ‘We Are Better Than That’

    Sweetness & Light | 29 Aug 2014 | 4:29 am MDT

    From the San Francisco Chronicle:

    Hillary Clinton on Ferguson: ‘We are better than that’

    By Carla Marinucci | August 28, 2014

    Nearly three weeks after a national firestorm erupted over the fatal police shooting of an unarmed African American teenager in Missouri, potential presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton broke her silence on the incident Thursday in San Francisco, saying it underscored deep economic challenges and justice system "inequities" the country needs to confront.

    "Nobody wants to see our streets look like a war zone, not in America. We are better than that,’" Clinton told an audience of technology executives at the St. Regis Hotel.

    "This is what happens when the bonds of trust and respect that hold any community together fray," she said. "We cannot ignore the inequities that exist in our justice system." …

    This is the best that three week’s of focus group testing could come up with?


  151. CNN Says Timestamp Of Ferguson Tape Has Been Verified

    Sweetness & Light | 29 Aug 2014 | 4:25 am MDT

    From Breitbart:

    CNN Makes Another Run at Alleged Ferguson Audio Based on Timestamp

    August 28, 2014

    As reported on CNN on Thursday, Glide, the company whose service captured the alleged audio of the Michael Brown shooting from earlier this month, confirmed the timestamp of the audio.

    The audio was aired on CNN earlier this week but the network had backed off of playing the audio on air after questions were raised, even by the network’s own guests. However, Lemon called this confirmation of a timestamp by Glide to be another layer of “authentication,” despite the having been downplayed by what he referred to as comments “taken out of context” on TV.

    We wonder just how exactly one verifies a time stamp.

    BLITZER: [D]on, people had some doubts about the authenticity of this audio, but those doubts, I guess the audio, and the company that provides this service says they shouldn’t have those doubts.


  152. 145 Arrests, 0 Documentation Checks At Amnesty Rally

    D.C. immigration protest: 145 arrests, 0 documentation checks

    By Andrea Noble | August 28, 2014

    U.S. Park Police will not check the immigration status of the 145 people arrested outside of the White House Thursday during a protest against the deportation of illegal immigrants. Park Police arrested the protesters Thursday afternoon for blocking the sidewalk outside the White House during their demonstration.

    As part of the standard procedure, those arrested will be have their criminal histories checked as police search for any outstanding warrants, said Park Police spokesman Lt. Richard Butler said. “The only time immigration ever comes up is if there has been a hit or a flag that has come up from other departments,” Lt. Butler said.

    Obama’s DOJ Sues Minnesota City for Rejecting Islamic Center

    By Warner Todd Huston | August 28, 2014

    The Department of Justice has announced that it is suing the small town of St. Anthony, Minnesota, after a two-year investigation into the town’s denial of a permit to create an Islamic cultural center.

    The DOJ claims that the north Minneapolis town broke a federal law when it rejected the center in 2012.

    "An injustice has been done," U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said on August 27. "I will not stand by while any religious group is subject to unconstitutional treatment that violates federal civil rights laws."

    Unless they are Christians. Then all bets are off. (Cf. Obama-Care’s contraception and abortion mandates.)

    The DOJ claims that the city violated the law when it refused the Abu Huraira Islamic Center the right to create an Islamic cultural center in the basement of the St.

    Marched to their deaths: Sickening ISIS slaughter continues as 250 soldiers captured at Syrian airbase are stripped then led to the desert for mass execution

    By Dan Bloom | 28 August 2014

    Sickening footage appears to show Islamic State militants parading around 250 captured soldiers through the desert in their underwear before they are killed and their bodies piled on the bare earth…

    The video… begins by showing dozens of men being marched through the desert wearing only their underwear. It then fades to black, resuming with a pile of bloodied bodies stacked on top of one another. As the horrific footage progresses it pans slowly across a vast line of men who appear to be dead, and whose bodies have been laid out one by one.

  183. Rotherham

    Wizbang | 31 Aug 2014 | 3:47 pm MDT

    Maybe I need some help here. You see, I’m writing a piece about Rotherham, a mid-size city in Yorkshire, UK. Over 1400 underage girls, mostly British, have been systematically abused there since 1997, mostly at the hands of Pakistani nationals who are a part of the city’s large immigrant community. The story exploded in the UK press this week as allegations that Rotherham authorities were fully aware of the abuse, yet declined to prosecute suspects for fear of being labeled “racists,” were splashed across front pages. So here’s my problem. I go to the MSNBC website, to search for news

  184. Obama’s Nanny-State, Government-Sponsored Instructions For ‘How To Roast Marshmallows’

    Wizbang | 31 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am MDT

    Are you a stupid American? Obama’s government thinks you are. So stupid, in fact, that his US Forest Service felt it necessary to give us all a 700-word article on how to roast marshmallows. Because, you know, you are all too stupid to know how to do it safely, and all. Pete Kasperowicz found this gem of government nannyism at our nation’s oh, so helpful website of the US Department of Agriculture. It is entitled, “US Forest Service Asks: How Does Your Marshmallow Roast?.” The nanny-state-styled instructions takes its cue from National Roasted Marshmallow Day (it was August 30, if

The plan urges kids to agree with the Black Panthers, a racist, hate group that urges segregation, and accept the demands they issued in the past. An activist group that calls itself Teaching for Change, one that works with schools to push the hard-core, left-wing agenda branded “social justice” rushed out its lesson plan to capitalize on the death of teenager Michael Brown. “As the new school year begins, first and foremost on

    As Islam remains the biggest threat facing the world today, Obama’s feckless FBI has released a “threat assessment” report that doesn’t mention Islamic terror at all. According to Obama, it is white people who are the threat. The FBI’s internal threat report claims that white supremacists, patriot militias, anti-abortion activists, and black separatists are the real threat. But despite the Boston Marathon bombing, despite stories that some ISIS fighters in Iraq have been discovered to be American citizens, despite that the FBI itself has busted dozens of would-be home-grown Islamic terrorists, Obama’s FBI does not once mention in this report

    Leave it to leftist Illinois to use a museum dedicated to celebrating Abraham Lincoln, one of the greatest presidents in history, as a platform to celebrate a loser like Adlai Stevenson while at the same time ignoring Ronald Reagan, a native son, big winner, and another greatest president. If you think this isn’t just another example of why Illinois is the single worst state in the union in nearly every metric that makes up a successful state, then you are immune to logic. Illinois spent billions building the Lincoln Library near the state capital in Springfield. The place opened to
