Published on Aug 25, 2014 by PragerUniversity

Are most college professors liberal? Yes, says Penn State Associate Professor of Political Science and Philosophy Matthew Woessner. Perhaps surprisingly, however, his research shows that liberal bias does not seem to influence right-leaning students. Rather, it insulates left-leaning students, hindering their ability to critically analyze their own ideas. In five minutes, learn more about college liberal bias.

American, Douglas McArthur McCain from San Diego, California and who went by the name Duale ThaslaveofAllah per his Facebook page, was one of three foreign jihadists fighting for the Islamic State killed this past weekend by the Free Syrian Army.

American jihadist, Douglas McArthur McCain aka Duale ThaslaveofAllah per his Facebook page if he survived would have returned to the USA a major threat.

American, Douglas McArthur McCain from San Diego, California and who went by the name Duale ThaslaveofAllah per his Facebook page, was one of three foreign jihadists fighting for the Islamic State killed this past weekend by the Free Syrian Army.

Last seen three months ago in Turkey, the Muslim convert was found with $800 and a passport in his pockets.

DailyMail.co.uk

The Free Syrian Army found the body of 33-year-old Douglas McAuthur McCain after a fight with ISIS, with $800 cash in his pocket and an American passport….

The San Diego native appears to have crossed into Syria a few months ago, according to posts on his personal Twitter….

Most of the articles reporting the death of this individual include a biography/obit that is nothing short of nauseating.

Obvious is the media’s failure to mention that if McCain had survived, the jihadist/traitor would have returned to the United States a major threat bringing with him the willingness and capability to commit unspeakable acts against Americans on U.S. soil.

NBC’s article is just as nauseating but not to worry as with Bowe Bergdahl, the State Department is in touch with the family of this jihadist.

Shame on NBC!

Petrilli’s New PR Common Core Campaign. How’s That Working?

Missouri Education Watchdog

Michael Petrilli recently announced the Common Core advocates needed to change their marketing push for the privately owned/copyrighted standards for public schools and be more ‘emotional’. From Politico and Moms winning the Common Core war:

…backed with fresh funding from philanthropic supporters, including a $10.3 million grant awarded in May from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, supporters are gearing up for a major reboot of the Common Core campaign.

We’ve been fighting emotion with talking points, and it doesn’t work,” said Mike Petrilli, executive vice president of the Fordham Institute, a leading supporter of the standards. “There’s got to be a way to get more emotional with our arguments if we want to win this thing. That means we have a lot more work to do.”

Mercedes Schneider doesn’t take his ‘emotion’ seriously….

 

As usual, the elites have underestimated the intelligence of parents, grandparents and guardians.

From flag@whitehouse.gov to Attack Watch to Truthy. Sounds fishy to me….really. (Oops, forgot one, Source Watch.)

The federal government plans on spending $1 million plus on a creation of a program that would track spy on amass what the federal government itself has ordained misinformation, hate speech, astroturfing and “other social pollution” and just in time for the 2016 presidential campaign season.

Washington Free Beacon

‘Truthy’ claims to be non-partisan. However, the project’s lead investigator Filippo Menczer proclaims his support for numerous progressive advocacy groups, including President Barack Obama’s Organizing for Action, Moveon.org, Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, Amnesty International, and True Majority.

Menczer, a professor of informatics and computer science at Indiana University, links to each of the organizations on his personal page from his bio at the Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research….

Gallery Descriptions of interesting memes” (excerpts)

The #tcot hashtag represents the “Top Conservatives On Twitter.” This is the most popular meme we track: it has the most users, the second most tweets (after #news), and the third largest diffusion network (after @barackobama and #p2). The most active account, @COH2HOG, has posted over 116,000 tweets.

This meme is the username of a politician’s account, and represents conversations about him. We can see a huge orange cluster, signifying many people who mention this candidate in their tweets.

#GOP This is widely used and an example of a popular, grassroots meme. In the diffusion network we can often observe two clearly separated clusters. These correspond to conservative and liberal communities, using the tag in different ways. People tend to retweet others in the same community and not in the other community, so we see the clusters in blue. We also see orange edges connecting the two communities. These occur when users mention people in the other community, typically to disagree or criticize.

This meme is @sarahpalinusa, the Twitter account of Sarah Palin. This is an example of the diffusion patterns we observe around celebrities and other popular, influential people. Users in the orange cluster mention @sarahpalinusa (in the center) or address tweets to her. Some of these are critical (away from the blue). Others are supporters, and we observe that those users also retweet @sarahpalinusa (blue edges). …

These so-called memes, include twitter names of Conservatives, Conservative organizations, reports on our rogue government regime, political corruption, crony capitalists, Islamization of America and Islamic terrorism, “The website displays anti-Muslim propaganda, including a graphic video of beheadings by the Taliban.” H/t Weasel Zippers.

As not reported by the mainstream media, ICE has released information to the Center for Immigration Studies providing the locations from which more 36,000 “convicted criminal illegal aliens” were released across the United States in 2013.

Released from 96 different localities across the United States, many were convicted of sexual assault, kidnapping, aggravated assault, drunk, drugged driving, etc.

Center for Immigration Studies By Jessica Vaughan

The 169 aliens with homicide-related convictions who were freed by ICE in 2013 were booked out of detention facilities in 24 different states, with the largest number in California, according to information provided to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). ICE records show that these convicted killers were associated with 96 different cities and towns across America. The city with the largest concentration was Miami, with seven convicted murderers freed by ICE, followed by Los Angeles with six.

ICE provided the information to Sen. Grassley in response to concerns based on a CIS report revealing that ICE freed 36,007 aliens with criminal convictions in 2013, an occurrence that Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) called “the worst prison break in history.” Sen. Grassley asked ICE for more details, particularly on the 169 criminal aliens with homicide convictions, including the reason for release, the location of release, and the zip code of the alien’s last known address. …

The illegals released are nothing short of the dregs of society and they are walking the streets of America today if not dead or presently incarcerated.

Former Gitmo detainee, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State (ISIS)

Washington Free Beacon

A Princeton professor told Pat Roberston in an interview that the United States must destroy terror group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) in Iraq, or risk an attack on U.S. soil.

“We’re going to have to fight them somewhere,” declared Dr. Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University….

While I am not pleased about sending our men and women who have sacrificed more than enough so that we may be free, I have no doubt that we must engage ISIS.

Regardless of the political spin from Barack Obama and minions, ISIS will bring the fight to our shores or make a darned good effort to do so.

Of course, this would not be necessary if Obama the weak had not been so hell bent on appeasement abroad, the rush to pull out of Iraq, erasing red lines and funding so-called moderate jihadists.

The despot is literally spitting on the graves of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.

Adding to that, the treatment of the men and women in service today and our veterans.

Islamic State Seizes Control of Syrian Air Base

Tags

, ,


BeFunky_screenshot islamic state.jpg

After weeks in battle with the Syrian government, the Islamic State Sunday seized Tabqa Air Base, no doubt a huge blow to the Assad regime.

Tabqa Air Base, one of the Syrian military’s largest facilities, houses several warplane squadrons, helicopters, tanks, artillery and ammunition. Its location is approximately 25 miles from ISIS’ stronghold in Raqqa and likely not far from where American journalist, James Foley, was beheaded last week. (my emphasis)

DailyMail.co.uk

Militants beheaded Syrian soldiers and impaled their heads on fence posts when they captured similar bases, including the sprawling Division 17 base in Raqqa.

There were several failed efforts to breach the facility’s walls in recent days but the facility was captured today, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Despite government airstrikes to try to beat back the attack, the jihadis quickly quashed the remaining pockets of resistance, killing dozens of soldiers…..

Continue Reading

According to the Daily Star-Lebanon, hundreds of jihadists were wounded and 350 killed during a battle that went on for weeks; approximately 170 of Assad’s troops were killed with 150 captured on Sunday alone.

… Tabqa is the latest in a string of bases to fall to ISIS as it strengthens its hold over a vast swath of territory in northern and eastern Syria. Last month, ISIS fighters overran the sprawling Division 17 military base in Raqqa, killing at least 85 soldiers. Two weeks later, they seized the nearby Brigade 93 base after days of heavy fighting….

In the meantime, Barack Obama who has underestimated the intelligence and strength of the Islamic State has been swinging his golf club rather than face the initiative of targeting the jihadists in Syria head on.

As usual, the results to Obama hemming and hawing are disastrous.

Obama: America’s Lucifer

Space Coast Conservative

When I remember this story it reminds me of the “Hope” and “Change” thing that the president used to get into office — along with the other lies and deceptions – and of the fact that he hasn’t kept any of his promises and he’s done all he can to destroy us and our great country. Let me illustrate if you will.

When the president campaigned, he gave folks the promise of “Hope” and “Change”; and many people believed him and followed him. Some followed him so blindly that they cheated for him so that they could ensure his election. He got elected, they got the shaft….

It is inconceivable that nearly six years later, millions remain in the corner of the greatest deceiver and weakest leader in the history of the United States.

Many who would recognize a con artist a mile away have sold their souls just to get a glimpse of Barack Obama and just as many suffering immeasurably under Obama’s rogue government will never admit that their pain is the result of POTUS44.

I have heard many Christian Obama supporters give Obama a pass because they believe he is a Christian. Engage them on the sins of the despot elicits a response “but he’s supposed to be a Christian” or “I thought he was a Christian” with a confused look on their faces but very few will admit the deception.

The world is in turmoil, our enemies are crossing our borders with the most devious intent, we are entering World War III and somewhere in America, an Obama supporter is blaming George Bush. H/t Grumpy Opinions.

No Shout Outs from Race Baiters to Victims of Black on Black Crime


All we have heard about for weeks now is the murder of Black men by law enforcement.

Discussed for a minute by Blacks and never by the mainstream media, is the murder of Black men by Black men, Black boys by Black boys, etc.

Apparently, there is no money to be made in black on black crime so why bother and the grievance industry knows it, which explains why black on black crime, is less than a blip on the radar.

We have seen the grievance industry at work the past month instigating in New York and Missouri moving the mob mentality to do commit horrible crimes to their own.

For example, at last Sunday’s “Unity Rally for Justice for Michael Brown” in Ferguson, Al Sharpton said during another one of his fiery speeches, We are not looters. We are liberators…..”

Well that speech did nothing to quell the violence in Ferguson, if anything it fired up those negative elements looking to take advantage of a good crisis.

Sure, the looting and chaos eventually tampered down but for how long? Instigators and race baiters, i.e., Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, Barack Obama, the Communist Party, Malik Shabazz, the Nation of Islam, the Black Panther Party and the mainstream media had nothing to do with the quell of violence in Ferguson but they instigated much of it.

On Saturday, the same opportunist of the grievance industry (Al Sharpton) marched through streets of Staten Island, New York to protest the police killing of Eric Garner in the “We Will Not Go Back” March.”

That is a lot of marching and protesting on behalf of men killed by the police state as compared to the hundred of dead bodies piling up in Black communities across America, all of whom are slaughtered by Blacks.

9 year old antonio smith

 

None of the above dared to extend their sympathies or deliver a shout out to the family of nine-year-old Antonio Smith found in a Chicago backyard with multiple gunshots wounds last week.

On the day Antonio was killed, he phoned his mother to ask if he could have a cupcake for snack. Antonio’s mother denied Antonio his cupcake. Mom responded that she was on her way home from work.

Antonio upset that he could not have a cupcake left the house.

Moments later Antonio’s older brother called the mother to tell her Antonio walked out of the house.

Twenty minutes later, police found Antonio with two gunshot wounds to his chest a block or so away from where he and his family lived.

As of this morning Antonio remains in ICU.

BeFunky_null_1 violence in urban america

So far this year, Chicago has had 1,258 shootings compared to last year’s rate of 2,185 shootings

Between 4:40 p.m. Friday and 3 a.m.Sunday, there has been about 24 shootings in Chicago this weekend, one of which was a three year old who found a gun in his home.

Police suspect that the gun which has mysteriously disappeared may have been accidentally fired by little James Jenkins who suffered a wound to his head or by one of his friends.

BeFunky_screenshot urban violence 02a

Last weekend there was 21 shootings in New York City.

To date, this year, New York City has had more than 700 shootings including the shooting of 7 people Saturday amounting to a 13% increase from last year.

Yet with the exception of grieving family and friends, there is an overwhelming silence.

Where is the outrage?

Where is Al Sharpton? Where is Jesse Jackson? Where is Eric Holder? Where is Barack Obama?

Oh my bad, there’s no money to be made in Black on Black crime.

ISIS Message to Chicago: “We are in your streets.”

Since the execution of American journalist, James Foley a few days ago, Americans are finally asking themselves, “How far is ISIS’ reach?” “Is ISIS is here in the United States?”

While our government would deny their existence on US soil, those of us who have been following the massive influx of illegal immigrants crossing the US-Mexico border would respond, “Longer that one would dare imagine and you betcha.”

From Hashtag Activism to Terror Tweets

On August 9th, under #AMessageFromISIStoUS, the Islamic State dispatched a tweet directed to the people in Chicago, which states, “We are in your streets.” The tweet included a photograph of a man’s hand holding the message in Arabic across the street from 307 N. Michigan Avenue, Chicago’s Old Republic Building.

Also included in the tweet is a photograph of a smartphone in a nighttime location that appears to be outside the White House.

The Federalist Papers

ISIS is our enemy and they must be destroyed. No matter what the President, or the State Department says, we are in a fight because ISIS wants a fight.

Via the Washington Times:

‘Sunni radicals with the Islamic State terrorist group have posted a number of tweets aimed at the citizens of Chicago, including a picture of an unidentified man on Michigan Avenue holding a paper with a handwritten Arabic message: ‘We are in your streets….’
