  • Saudi Family Therapist: Don't Beat Your Wife With Rod or Sharp Object, Use Sewak Tooth-Cleaning Twig

    CNS News ^ | April 27, 2016 | Michael W. Chapman
    A Muslim family therapist in Saudi Arabia, Khaled Al-Saqaby, posted a video in which he gives advice on “wife beating,” explains that the “necessary Islamic conditions for beating must be met,” and shows that husbands must not use a long wooden rod to beat their wife but instead use a tooth-cleaning twig or handkerchief. In the video from February, which was translated into English and re-posted by the Washington, D.C.-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), therapist Khaled Al-Saqaby begins, “Assalaam Alaykum. Allah’s blessing upon you. Welcome to our show, which will deal with wife beating. I am aware that...

    The London Telegraph ^ | May 25, 2016 | James Rothwell and Jirtme Cartillier
    Barack Obama has wrapped up his historic visit to Vietnam by throwing down some beats for a Vietnamese rapper. The President was taking questions at a town hall-style meeting in Ho Chi Minh city when a young woman introduced herself as a hip hop artist before asking her question. Mr Obama immediately invited her to show off her talent, asking "do you need a few beats?" The woman, named Suboi and renowned as Vietnam's "queen of hip hop," then serenaded Obama with Vietnamese lyrics about whether people are really happy if they have lots of money. Seemingly delighted with the...

    The gun-control lobby has a new target: Your children’s Lego sets. A new "study" touted by libs decries the prevalence of weapons in the brick construction kits: I kid you not. The gun-grabbers have their panties in a twist over harmless fantasy play with teeny-tiny plastic parts. LEGO building kits are becoming increasingly violent as toy manufacturers are engaged in an “arms race” to appeal to children, a New Zealand study says. Researchers at the University of Canterbury concluded from research that examined LEGO catalogues from 1973 to 2015 that weaponry is now included in 30 per cent of...

    Counter-Jihad Report ^ | May 1, 2016 | John Guandolo
    How is it that nearly fifteen (15) years after 9/11 none (ie ZERO) of the Islamic advisors to the United States government have shared with our leaders the Quranic concept of abrogation, the definition of “jihad” in sharia (Islamic Law), or the fact sharia obliges jihad until the entire world is under sharia? It is because sharia obliges Muslims to lie to non-Muslims when the goal is obligatory (eg Jihad), and makes it a capital crime for Muslims to teach other Muslims anything about Islam which is not a part of authoritative Islam. This means if American leadership wants to...

In a good year I'll see maybe .75 total transvestites in this lily-white, upper-crust area Wal Mart in the Capital District of NY. No pictures as I'm awful with my phone/camera and being sneaky. I realize evidence is crucial to the believability of this event and I am sorry, and that's why I'm wondering anyone else saw this.

Nicklaus said that Trump’s “not stupid” and that he will eventually learn to be more polished like other politicians. “I like the guy. He’s a good man and if he’s the one that’s on the ticket, I’ll be voting for him,” he said.

    "One of our Submarines" is a song by British new wave/synth pop musician Thomas Dolby. The song was recorded in August 1982 and remains a favorite among Thomas Dolby fans. Originally written for The Thompson Twins, the track was released in a 12" extended version (found on the successful 1982 "Blinded by Science" EP) clocking in at 7:18, as well as in the album version found on The Golden Age of Wireless. The inspiration for the song was Dolby's late uncle, who died as a submarine crewman during World War II. The submarine that his uncle served on sank due...

    Shamelessness evidently is heritable, although it is not clear whether nature or nurture is at play in the case of Chelsea Clinton. The Hillary campaign still needs money to fight Bernie Sanders, whose position in the upcoming Western primaries threatens to embarrass her even more, and make her margin of victory at the Philadelphia convention all too visibly dependent on the Big Fix, aka superdelegates. And relying on her Wall Street fat cat donors looks even worse. Hence the need to prattle on about motherhood as a reason to support a woman who has pursued the worldly goals of money...

And yet the fact that a serious presidential candidate addressed reparations speaks to the idea’s recent resurgence.

We spoke with Hirsch about the growing momentum behind reparations. SW: Why do you feel it is important for white Americans to engage in...
