  • Showtime's "Homeland" is onboard for the jihad

    Rand Koch blog ^ | March 26, 2017 | Rand Koch
    Have you been watching Showtime's Homeland? It's deep into jihad-supporting territory. That's nothing new by itself. It's taken a hard turn that way since this season began. Before that, too, but not quite as far as this. The question is, how far? The answer is given by checking who they hired to advise the show: Ramzi Kassem is a Muslim-activist, Gitmo lawyer and columnist for Al-Jazeera. Do you remember when President Obama promised to "close" Guantanamo? Ramzi Kassem opposed those plans because they weren't good enough for the jihadis. To be fair, Obama's plan was always a fraud. Moving Guantanamo...

    Article V Blog ^ | March 27th 2017 | Rodney Dodsworth
    Foremost among the reasons I despise the democrat party is its destructive nature. It builds nothing; it exists to destroy. In the name of social justice, it corrupts and soils every previously noble institution it comes to dominate. ‘Divide and conquer’ is a tactic as old as warfare, and one which the democrat party puts to skilled use for its nefarious goals. Together with their fellow travelers in the media, they exploit every possible Alinsky distinction in race, wealth, education, gender, and sexual orientation. Keep society back on its heels. Keep various factions at each other’s throats, all the while...

    HOLSTEIN, Iowa -- With demand for its architectural doors surging, VT Industries officials explored potential expansion sites last year. The company turned to the small Northwest Iowa city where the third-generation business got its start more than 50 years ago and continues to flourish. “We looked around the country to decide where we were going to either start up a new plant or add on to one of our existing plants and we really felt like with our workforce here and how well everything’s running here we wanted to keep the facility here in Holstein and expand upon it," said...

    Former Celebrity Apprentice host, Arnold Schwarzenegger, may have recently distanced himself from President Donald Trump, but The Donald has nothing to worry about as many members of his reality show brethren still has his back, unlike Hollywood. Who are some of the reality stars that continue to support Donald Trump? When it looked as though there was no one that would perform at Trump’s inauguration, Gold Rush‘s Todd Hoffman generously offered his singing talents, but on Facebook. Although he was eager to share his services to sing for the then-newly elected president, it was too bad that Trump, who prefers...

    Anyone who has a portable device — including smartphones, tablets, laptops, smartwatches and fitness trackers — is obviously familiar with a lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery because most (if not all) of these devices are powered by this kind of battery. We’ve been okay with the rechargeable for a while, but as lithium-ion batteries are now close to reaching their maximum storage capacity (in other words, battery life can’t be extended any more), and with the horror stories about phone batteries that explode or burn, the search is on for an alternative battery that can meet our demands better and safer.

    A lawyer for a 16-year-old Muslim immigrant to Sweden is challenging his 40 hours of community service punishment for raping a 13-year-old girl, calling it “unwarranted.” The sexual assault took place last July in Gothenburg. The assailant posted a video of the attack on the Internet. “As one can see from the numerous comments on the video, it is the girl who was at fault,” claimed Kamal Humpur, a lawyer for the assailant who was only identified as “Ali” because he is a minor. “She had no covering. Her face was fully exposed. Clearly, she is a whore. Ali cannot...

    As we search for answers as to why President Trump and his Transition Team were surveilled in November and December of 2016, and January 2017, we actually can go back to the Patriot Act. After 9-11 Americans were taken advantage of due to their fears of another 9-11 terrorist attack. The lawmakers had us right where they wanted us; thus, the Patriot Act was passed. Little did we know that we would have no privacy ever again. Remember FBI Director James Comey said the other day, “no one has any privacy.” The surveillance of Trump Team is a serious violation...

    TIANJIN, China — China's rulers are planning a megacity that will be home to 130 million people and cover an area the size of New England. Sitting on the northeast coast of China, Jing-Jin-Ji — which stands for Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei — is a central plank of the country's economic development plan over the next century. The sheer numbers around the the project are startling. In November, the government approved $36 billion to build some 700 miles of new rail there within just three years' time.

Is he some kind of social justice warrior who hoped he would've triggered an Islamophobic response at the expense of a passerby? This is why responsible media-types have editing functions available like "blur" so the identities of people, even if they are on a public street, for this precise reason are protected. Blaming the reaction on a "far right" bigoted response, it could also be argued, is exactly what Lorriman wanted.

No member would commit his vote before consulting with the entire group — not even if Trump himself called to ask for an on-the-spot commitment. The idea, hatched by Freedom Caucus Vice Chairman Rep.

    The Aral Sea, once the fourth largest lake in the world, has almost completely dried up—but it’s mostly a man-made phenomenon, described as “one of the planet’s worst environmental disasters.” Originally, the lake covered 26,300 sq miles between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. However, it’s been steadily shrinking since the 1960s after Soviet irrigation projects diverted rivers that fed into it, splitting it into four, much smaller lakes. Now, only 10 percent of the original lake still exists, according to Scientific American. Recent NASA satellite images revealed its untold destruction, showing that the entire eastern portion had completely dried up. The eastern...

    From the birth of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was vehemently against it. In an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Paul noted the problematic rising premiums that Obamacare engenders in the individual market. He elaborately explained the much needed demand to eradicate Obamacare’s insurance mandates and high prices. The AHCA would have earned popularity among conservatives if Rand Paul was involved with the crafting of the bill. Speaker Ryan remained woefully out of touch with the AHCA’s dismal unfavorability; his determination to persist with the proposal serves as evidence of such. Senator Paul was one...

Yet the mainstream media has completely ignored this major story. The initial wave of arrests did not involve high-profile persons or government officials. However, that’s changed. Recently, there have been high-profile people arrested for sex trafficking including authority figures. And now, in a bombshell interview Dr. Phil did with a sex trafficking victim – who was sold into an elite international pedophile ring – she claimed that members of the FBI...

    On a Saturday morning in Dallas, Texas, my daughter and I decided to eat breakfast out.

It took about five minutes to load up a one year old and a two year old into the car, in the proper car seats, and another five minutes to drive to the restaurant. On the way in, I noticed the 30.07 sign that banned open carry in the restaurant. The 30.07 sign is required by Texas law, if a private property owner decides...

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said: “The death of Qari Yasin is evidence that terrorists who defame Islam and deliberately target innocent people will not escape justice.” Yasin was believed to have been responsible for a 2008 bombing on a hotel in Islamabad, Pakistan,...

Opponents of legalizing, regulating and taxing pot say they don’t care how much revenue it could generate for Illinois’ failed finances. Amendments to bills in the House and Senate this week would allow for the sale of recreational marijuana with a $50 tax per ounce. That would be on top of any sales tax. Supporters says it could generate hundreds of millions of dollars a year for the state. Democratic...

As the guy who was healed says, “Never since the world began has it been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a man born blind.” But then it’s a literal eye-opener for the man born blind.

In a video posted earlier this month, Nebraska Democratic Party chairwoman Jane Kleeb explained that her party decided to put the baskets together after President Donald Trump issued his “racist travel ban” in late January.

    The maker of meatless patties opens a large-scale production facility and plans to pump out 1 million pounds of faux meat every month. It's not easy to sink your teeth into one of Impossible Foods' lab-grown meatless hamburgers. After all, you can only get them at eight US restaurants. On Wednesday, though, the company said it will bring its Impossible Burger to 1,000 eateries by year's end. To make that happen, the firm is opening a factory the size of a city block. The goal is to make at least 1 million pounds of faux burger meat every month. "You...

Pictured are immigrants to the UK in 1948. These brave men were the first ones to stand up and fight against fascist rule dominating Europe in 1941. They had lost everything but decided to stay and fight for their homeland and democracy against overwhelming odds. For three years the Western Powers hailed the Serbian Chetniks as heroes until the winds of power altered direction and it was evident Communist Russia would be the liberator of...

    Cafes, churches and playing fields are quieter than usual, as undocumented immigrants lay low amid the crackdown United States, New York - With such slogans as "Resiste" and "No Deportaciones" emblazoned on the walls, there is little doubt that La Morada, a restaurant in a gritty district of New York, is more than your average taco-serving Mexican diner. Sure, their Oaxaca-style tortilla, mole sauce and steaming hot chocolate delight locals. But the Saavedra family that owns and runs the eatery sees itself as a Bronx bastion against a revived immigration crackdown under United States President Donald Trump. "There's obviously a...

    April Hathcock, an attorney and NYU librarian, argues that "whiteness... has permeated every aspect of librarianship" and must be "dismantled." Her article, titled "White Librarianship in Blackface: Diversity Initiatives in LIS," offers ways to "correct for whiteness" in the field of librarians. "It is no secret that librarianship has traditionally been and continues to be a profession dominated by whiteness," Ms. Hathcock begins her piece. "In this article, I use “whiteness” to refer not only to the socio-cultural differential of power and privilege that results from categories of race and ethnicity;" she writes. "It also stands as a marker for...

    California legislative knuckleheads really don't know how stupid they look, do they? “As a symbol of California’s commitment to the environment and combatting climate change, the Department of General Services (DGS), in cooperation with the Joint Rules Committee, will turn off the State Capitol dome lights for one hour (from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.) this Saturday, March 25th, to observe Earth Hour.” We’re going to turn the dome lights off, but leave all the internal ones on. That makes sense… They’re too busy saving the world while the state burns.
