American Humane Association Covered Up Movie Animal Abuses
The American Humane Association, most recognized for monitoring animal safety in movies, has been exposed covering up horrible abuses and animal fatalities during filming:
A THR investigation has found that, unbeknownst to the public, these incidents on Hollywood’s most prominent productions are but two of the troubling cases of animal injury and death that directly call into question the 136-year-old Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit’s assertion that “No Animals Were Harmed” on productions it monitors. Alarmingly, it turns out that audiences reassured by the organization's famous disclaimer should not necessarily assume it is true. In fact, the AHA has awarded its "No Animals Were Harmed" credit to films and TV shows on which animals were injured during production. It justifies this on the grounds that the animals weren't intentionally harmed or the incidents occurred while cameras weren't rolling.
Believe what you will about killing animals for food or for survival. But animals should never be harmed for entertainment.

Making It Painful: Obama Administration Shuts Down Amber Alerts; Keeps Michelle O's "Let's Move" Up

One Punch, One Kill
A black man screams that he hates white people and will knock out the next white person he sees. The next white person was Jeffrey Babbitt, a friendly 62 year old who cared for his ailing mother and spent his days helping friends and neighbors:
A 62-year-old man who was brutally attacked in Union Square last week died Monday.
On Wednesday, a man shouting that he "hated white people" punched victim Jeffrey Babbitt - who is white - in the face, witnesses said, causing him to fall and strike his head on the ground.
Lashawn Marten, 31, who is black, "made statements to the effect that I'm going to punch the first white man that I see," said NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.
Investigators have not yet concluded whether this was a hate crime or not. I hope Lashawn Marten will at least be made aware that killing creepy ass crackas is frowned upon.
And some people think George Zimmerman should have taken a few more punches before using lethal force...

Meanwhile in Libya... Remember Libya?
A little under two years ago, Philip Hammond, the Defence Secretary, urged British businessmen to begin “packing their suitcases” and to fly to Libya to share in the reconstruction of the country and exploit an anticipated boom in natural resources.But Gaddafi and Osama are still dead, right?
Yet now Libya has almost entirely stopped producing oil as the government loses control of much of the country to militia fighters.
Mutinying security men have taken over oil ports on the Mediterranean and are seeking to sell crude oil on the black market. Ali Zeidan, Libya’s Prime Minister, has threatened to “bomb from the air and the sea” any oil tanker trying to pick up the illicit oil from the oil terminal guards, who are mostly former rebels who overthrew Muammar Gaddafi and have been on strike over low pay and alleged government corruption since July.
Besides their guy won the election, performance in office is like so not important.

Ed and Martha's Three Way Calling Feature Leads To Closing of US Embassy in Yemen
Sekrit Jawa sources, that's me and my BS have learned that the NSA intercepted a three way call between Martha, Ayman al-Zawahiri and al-Qaeda's now second in command Nasser al-Wuhayshi.
While the three were discussing RV survival tricks, cell phone boosters and mountainous terrain, Ayman rambled on as usual and let slip that al-Wuhayshi's rented his Winnebombo from the same dealer who last year ripped off Ed with excessive mileage charges, "Ed only wanted to pay for the miles he actually used." She said. "You should see what he charges when it comes back in a dumpster.", al-Wuhayshi replied.
The US has evacuated all non essential personnel from Yemen, out of an abundance of caution.
Ed and Martha's cell phone meta data has become an intelligence boon for the USA in recent weeks. Exposing or thwarting multiple attacks in places where attacks didn't happen.

I keep a Google alert on Shaima Alawadi because I've been following the story for some time.
So this morning I get an alert, I'm was hoping its news on Justice for her murder. But sadly it was just CAIR and New America Media spamming old stories of Islamophobia.
El Cajon Killing Revives Fears of IslamophobiaAlthough we know this narrative is completely and utterly false and that her husband Kassim Alhamidi is awaiting trial on murder charges That doesn't stop the disinformation campaign about her murder run by CAIR and New American Media.
Though police have yet to announce a motive, those in the community suspect Alawadi was targeted for wearing the hijab, a traditional headscarf worn by many female Muslims.

Shocking News! IRS Commissioner's Wife Susan L. Anderson is Obama for America Activist/Netroots/Occupyer
We already knew that former IRS commissioner Doug Shulman’s wife, Susan L. Anderson, worked for a liberal activist group, Public Campaign.Read more on Susan L. Anderson's radical leftist views.
And we briefly mentioned that at one point she had some kind of connection to the Occupy Wall Street movement:
We didn’t know until now, however, that she also worked for Obama For America (see tweet above).
Nor did we know that she talked smack about Karl Rove’s group, American Crossroads.
Update by SH: A few 'choice' tweets of hers:
Romney supporter was targeted by the IRS and she appeared very happy about that fact
Another target of the IRS:

Meanwhile In Sweden
Police attacked and cars torched in Stockholm suburbs as unrest sparked by long-term youth unemployment and poverty spreads.Heh killing people who are running around with a machete screaming Allahu Ackbar is raayyyycccyyyssst.
Hundreds of youths burnt down a restaurant, set fire to more than 30 cars and attacked police during a fourth night of rioting in the suburbs of Stockholm, shocking a country that dodged the worst of the financial crisis but failed to solve youth unemployment and resentment among asylum seekers.
Violence spread across the Swedish capital on Wednesday, as large numbers of young people rampaged through the suburbs, throwing stones, breaking windows and destroying cars. Police in the southern city of Malmo said two cars had been set ablaze.
...The disturbances appear to have been sparked by the police killing a 69-year-old man wielding a machete in the suburb of Husby earlier this month, which prompted accusations of police brutality. The riots then spread to other poor Stockholm suburbs.
"We see a society that is becoming increasingly divided and where the gaps, both socially and economically, are becoming larger," said Rami Al-khamisi, co-founder of Megafonen, a group that works for social change in the suburbs. "And the people out here are being hit the hardest … we have institutional racism."

Race Baiting Retard of the Day
David Sirota sure hopes that the Boston Bomber turns out the be a white dude, because, you know, rayyycyyystssttss!
Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white AmericanPuke..... Oddly enough a number of Islamist terrorists have been Lone Wolves but that doesn't fit the leftist narrative.
There is a double standard: White terrorists are dealt with as lone wolves, Islamists are existential threats
the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.
Update: You know, I've totally changed my mind, I think he may have something.
White privilege is knowing that even if the bomber turns out to be white, no one will call for your group to be profiled as terrorists as a result, subjected to special screening or threatened with deportation.
After all this white dude bombed stuff and murdered people, today not only does he not regret it. He's a celebrated professor and a major player in educating our children. Not to mention a good friend of President Obama.

Brunswick GA City Commissioner Arrested for Tampering With Witness in Baby Killing
He was just trying to, you know, help his voters.... and also never mind that racketeering charge he's facing. Its just da man keepin' him down.
A Georgia city official was arrested Thursday on charges of obstructing enforcement and influencing a witness in the case involving the fatal shooting of a one-year-old boy.As you might recall Karimah Elkins was interviewed by a local news station stating that De'Marquise Elkins, was at her home during the time of the killing. For some reason at the time she did not mention to the News station that she'd helped discard the murder weapon.
An attorney for Brunswick city commissioner and mayor pro tem James Henry Brooks told WTLF-TV that his client was arrested for stepping between police and Karimah Elkins, the mother of 17-year-old suspect De'Marquise Elkins, when police tried speaking with her during a court appearance Monday.
Karimah Elkins and De'Marquise's older sister, Sabrina Elkins, were charged with evidence tampering. The indictment says they threw the revolver that police suspect was used in the shooting into a saltwater pond where investigators recovered it Tuesday.

Abu Qatada Hides Behind Kuffar Law
You always hear about how Muslims want Sharia. How they'd like the UK to be more like their homeland with law based on Islam.
Yet when they get a chance to go to court in an Arab nation where laws are based on Islam or use Islamic common and religious law, they get all chickenshit.
Home Secretary Theresa May has lost her appeal against a ruling preventing the deportation of preacher Abu Qatada.
She acted after the Special Immigration Appeals Commission said the radical cleric could not be returned to Jordan.
Judges say he could face an unfair trial involving evidence obtained by torturing others.
The Home Office said it would further appeal, adding: "This is not the end of the road. The government remains determined to deport Abu Qatada."
What's up with that?

FAU Student Suspended For Refusing To Step On The Name 'Muhammad'
A Florida Atlantic University's Intercultural Communications class professor had students write the name "Muhammad" on a piece of paper and then step on it. One student refused and was suspended.
Well, not really. The professor ordered the students to step on the name "Jesus" not "Muhammad."
You didn't really think this liberal instructor was that brave, did you?
BOCA RATON (CBS4) – A student at Florida Atlantic University said he was unfairly suspended from his Intercultural Communications class because he refused to step on Jesus.
Ryan Rotella, a junior from Coral Springs, said the incident began when his professor, Dr. Deandre Poole, asked students in the class to write the word “Jesus” on a piece of paper, fold it up, and step on it.
Rotella, a deeply religious Mormon, told CBS12 that he was offended and refused to participate in the exercise.
Had it been the name "Muhammad," the professor would have been fired, outraged Muslim students would be protesting, CAIR would have been launching campaigns against the university, Eric Holder would be investigating the professor for hate crimes, and the student involved would look like Obama's son if he had one.
But since it was "Jesus," suspend the student and carry on.

Students Tackle Gunman, Get Suspended From School
New DHS memo for your only option when faced with an active shooter situation - bend over and kiss your ass goodbye.
Didn't the liberal left just advise students that, as a last resort, they should charge and tackle a shooter?
The student said the suspect, a football player, threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.
Authorities confirmed to WFTX the weapon was indeed loaded, and the arrest report stated the suspect, identified by WVZN-TV as Quadryle Davis, was "pointing the gun directly" at the other student and "threatening to shoot him."
That's when, the teen told the station, he and two others tackled the suspect and wrestled the gun away. The next day, all three were suspended.
What next? If you use a pair of scissor to stab a deranged shooter, will you go to jail for assault with a deadly weapon?
I guess a successful self-defense story just doesn't fit the leftist agenda. Maybe they prefer a few dead bodies. That's the only thing I can figure.
Self defense is simply not an option in the liberal agenda. Defending yourself or others only deprives another of his right to express himself.
The school's contact info is HERE:
Cypress Lake High School

If you contact them, please be civil.
Below the fold, a perfect liberal citizen. A woman interviewed says "self defense is not an option." When asked what if someone was trying to kill her, she replies, "They'll just have to kill me."
This woman would literally rather die than touch a gun. Why am I not surprised she is an Obama supporter?

Armed Guards In Schools? Pfft! Not For Peons!
President Obama and the media elite in DC send their children to a heavily armed private school. Yet those same hypocrites scoff at the idea of allowing armed guards at public schools:
The school, Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, has 11 security officers and is seeking to hire a new police officer as we speak.
If you dismiss this by saying, "Of course they have armed guards -- they get Secret Service protection," then you've missed the larger point.
The larger point is that this is standard operating procedure for the school, period. And this is the reason people like NBC's David Gregory send their kids to Sidwell, they know their kids will be protected from the carnage that befell kids at a school where armed guards weren't used (and weren't even allowed).
Shame on President Obama for seeking more gun control and for trying to prevent the parents of other school children from doing what he has clearly done for his own. His children sit under the protection guns afford, while the children of regular Americans are sacrificed.

I Worship the Sphinx and Pyramids
Rusty's God, Bob the Magnificent
My God & faith demand that I worship the Sphinx and pray toward the pyramids. They are my idols. I worship them.
So, now that the so-called "moderate Islamists" know that people actually do worship these idols, is it now okay to destroy them?
An Egyptian jihad leader, with self-professed links to the Taliban, called for the “destruction of the Sphinx and the Giza Pyramids in Egypt,” drawing ties between the Egyptian relics and Buddha statues, local media reported this week......Freedom of religion: I do not think it means what you think it means.
Sheikh Abdel Fattah Moro, called the live program and told Gohary that famous historic military commander Amr ibn al-Aas did not destroy statues when he conquered Egypt.
“So who are you to do it?” he wondered. “The Prophet destroyed the idols because people worshiped them, but the Sphinx and the Pyramids are not worshiped.”
And obviously, you get the point I'm trying to make here. That no government has the power to destroy religious icons, even if those religious icons are offensive to the majority within that country.
That's what freedom of religion means: the ability to worship whatever you want, even idols.
So, how do the so-called "moderates" like dem apples?

HAMAS Leader Takes A Break From Israel Bashing To Get Life-Saving Treatment In Israel For Relative
Palestinians will gladly accept Israel's advanced technology and medical treatment to save their own lives. But then, they'll just as happily send their children on a suicide mission to kill the very same doctors who saved them.
Hypocrisy knows no bounds in the Palestinian world.
HAIFA, Israel – Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh has no problem calling for the destruction of Israel and blaming it for attacks linked to his own party, but when his relative needs life-saving heart surgery, only Israeli doctors will do.
I wonder, do
terrorists HAMAS members have to pay for treatment up front, or does Israel just send them a bill later? 'Cause if it were me, I'd just take their address to send a missile bill. Really. That was just a typo. I meant bill. Seriously.

Murdock: Scientology 'Creepy' And 'Evil'
That may be true. I don't particularly care for Scientology. But there's something very hypocritical - maybe even itself evil - about calling the cult creepy for allegedly spying on the estranged spouse of a member, when the same criticism about Islam over "honor killings" is deemed racist and Islamophobic.
Can you imagine if any public figure called Islam "creepy" and "evil" after an estranged wife from a prominent Western Muslim was brutally murdered for speaking out against the ideology? Can you imagine the hypocritical outrage if an Islamic apostate publicly announced she was leaving her Muslim husband because she feared he was involving their daughter too much in the religion?
Minimally, he, or she, would be called a racist, an islamophobe, a bigot.
Oh wait, it's already happening.

Liberal-Speak: What's The Difference Between "Gays" And "F@ggots"?
According to gay, anti-bullying activist, Dan Savage, "gays" are homosexuals, but "f@ggots" are Republican homosexuals:
Of course, the progressive, liberal left must agree with him, as none have spoken out against the comment. In fact, the commenters at The Huffington Post are overwhelmingly in favor of Savage's slur. But only as it applies to Conservative gays, because the commenters there are, you know, tolerant and unbigoted and all.
Even gay support groups like GLAAD and LGBT have yet to speak out against the insult. Only GOProud has come out (no pun intended) and condemned the use of the term. But they are the one Savage was slurring.
(It should be noted that GLAAD hypocritically is calling for the removal of a Hispanic program that uses the same objectionable term Dan Savage used to refer to gays. But for some odd reason, GLAAD doesn't seem to be offended when he uses it. Go figure.)

Media Ignores Michelle Obama's Racist Comment
Where is the outrage?! Where is the indignation?! Why is the left ignoring this blatant racist remark by Michelle Obama!?
From The Weekly Standard, Michelle is quoted as saying (emphasis mine):

Everyone knows calling Barack Obama "cool" is a racist euphemism used by right wingers.
BTW, there are two Jonas Brothers. The third one was adopted.
Egypt: Pious Salafist (Sheikh Ali Wanis) Caught Red-Handed in Sex Scandal
Sheikh Ali Wanis, an Egyptian parliament member and prominent figure in the Nour Party—the Salafi party which preaches a return to Islam's earliest practices based on Muhammad's practices—was recently caught in a "compromising position" with a female other than his legal spouse(s).He tried to lie his way out of but failed so he accused the police of setting him up. His fellow pious Islamotards have come to his rescue
According to official reports, police found a parked car on a dark, farm road, and went to investigate it. They found a man, with the Salafi trademark beard, in an "indecent position" with a "young girl," who later was reported 19-years-old.
And what did his "ultraconservative" and "upright" Salafi colleagues do—they who constantly preach "morality," the need for the hijab, and the segregation of the sexes"? Did they renounce him? Perhaps a bit of public whipping, to atone for his sins? Did they, in "righteous indignation," do what two Egyptian brothers recently did when they thought their sister was being "immoral"—slaughter her, the mother, and aunt?He should have stuck to sheep and goats.
Not at all. After Friday prayers, hundreds of protesting Salafis marched out in the street with Wanis, shouting anti-police slogans and conspiracy theories.
Just as Egyptian secularists have long argued, Islamists like the Salafis and the Muslim Brotherhood hide behind a mantle of piety and morality—yet, when it comes to it, such piety and morality is apparently not something they strive to live by, but rather a weapon to use against non-Islamists, who are always portrayed as immoral and corrupt.[More]

Raaacist MA Dems: No Entry to Convention Without Photo ID
In recent years, Democrats have argued that requiring voters to show photo IDs prior to voting is an egregious act of voter suppression. Ben Jealous, of the NAACP, has gone so far as to argue that such requirements are tantamount to modern-day Jim Crow laws. In the world they inhabit, lots of voters don't have access to photo IDs, so requiring voters to provide this will "disenfranchise" them and leave them out of the democratic process. Funny they don't feel that way for their own party conventions(pdf). [ More...]Voter ID should be required for all voters...period.

Surprise? Another Charity Tied to al Qaeda
I always feel kind of dirty when I say this, but you just can't give money to an Islamic "charity":
A Canadian Muslim youth organization has been stripped of its charitable status after a Canada Revenue Agency investigation linked it to a Saudi-based group that allegedly financed Islamist terror campaigns.If you're Muslim and you need somewhere to funnel your charitable contributions, I really don't know what to say. I actually don't blame Muslims who give to these types of charities. Most of them give legitimate sounding pitches about "helping the widows and orphans in Kashmir" or some other place. Who wouldn't want to help widows and orphans?
An audit of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth revealed the charity had developed ties to a number of organizations that allegedly helped fund al-Qaeda operations around the world and failed to comply with a number of standards required for charities to maintain their status.
What they don't tell you is that the money is a reward given to the families of terrorists. Or that for every dollar spent on a hospital, another dollar is used to by weapons.
And yes, I know it isn't fair to paint all Islamic charities as terror fronts. Not fair at all. But I think the precautionary principle applies to terrorism and since there is little or no vetting of what any charity actually does on the ground it is better to be safe than sorry.
It's not my fault that a good chunk of people in your religion mean to do evil in the world. If it's any one's fault, it's theirs.

1% Tip Was Fake Fake Fake
The restaurant receipt that a California banker purportedly used to denigrate a waitress--while also leaving her a one percent tip--was wildly “altered and exaggerated,” according to a spokesperson for the Newport Beach restaurant where the businessman supposedly dined earlier this month.
A photo of the receipt (seen at right) has gone viral in the past few days, fueled by a back story claiming that the measly tip was the imperious financier’s way of provoking a member of the lowly “99%” who was not sufficiently solicitous. The claim about the tip--and a photo of the receipt--first appeared last week on a blog that is now offline (along with a related Twitter account).
In fact, a spokesperson for True Food Kitchen in Newport Beach told TSG that the eatery was able to locate the actual “merchant copy” of the February 16 credit card receipt and it reveals that the online version has been Photoshopped.

Shocking News! Taliban and al-Qaeda Fighters Totally Dependent on Pakistani Intelligence For Support!?!?!
The Taliban in Afghanistan depend on Pakistan for support, even though they do not necessarily welcome it, a secret NATO report says, according to a journalist who has read it.Of course the greater irony is that the Pakistanis are dependent on American aid to support the Taliban and al-Qaeda's fight against the U.S.
"It is a marriage of convenience," Times of London reporter Jerome Starkey said Wednesday, citing the report. The Taliban see Pakistan as manipulative, but they see no alternative to accepting its support, he said.
The Taliban are absolutely confident of victory, he said the report found, based on 27,000 interviews with over 4,000 detainees ranging from senior Taliban commanders to Afghan civilians.
They also include mid- and low-level Taliban, al Qaeda, and foreign fighters, he said.
The leaked NATO document revives the longstanding accusation that elements in Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence agency are aiding the insurgency in Afghanistan.
It says the ISI knows the whereabouts of all senior Taliban commanders, Starkey said.

An arrest was made in the fire-bombing of two different Synagogues around New Jersey.

The Bergen County prosecutor has charged 19-year-old Anthony Graziano of Lodi with the Jan. 11 attack on a Rutherford synagogue and the Jan. 3 firebombing of a synagogue in Paramus.
The charges include nine counts of attempted murder.
That's the entire article. No details, no interviews with worshipers or family members, no statements from any "civil rights" organizations, no journalist commentary about past crimes against Synagogues, no condemnation or 'hate crime' labels.

Beware the Evil Corporations & Those that Run Them
Frank J explains to us the evils of capitalism:
A private-sector business doesn’t even pretend to make decisions based on how to best help people or what creates the most jobs or even on what will most equally distribute income. It makes decisions based only on what creates a profit.Lulz. From there it gets even funnier. Or scary. Or funny-scary.
Yes, it’s frightening to think that something so mercenary even exists — even worse that someone who worked for something like that could actually become president. Of course, the only people who should lead our country and manage our economy are those who remain unsullied by the private sector’s for-profit mentality: career politicians.
