By RYAN LUCAS, Associated Press
BEIRUT (AP) — Little known to the wider world 18 months ago, the Islamic State extremist group has muscled its way into the international spotlight by carving out a self-declared caliphate in the heart of the Mideast, beheading its opponents and foreign journalists, and attracting radicalized youth as far afield as Paris, London and New York.
The militants’ once seemingly unstoppable push across Syria and Iraq has slowed to a crawl in recent months as the United States, its Arab allies and even rival Iran work to roll back the group and ultimately defeat it. Despite those efforts, the extremists show little sign of crumbling under the weight of international efforts to crush it.
Here’s a look at what happened this week involving the extremist group and the fight against it:
In video footage shot Tuesday, a pig facing a date with the slaughterhouse is shownkneeling directly in front of a local Buddhist temple, as if in an act of prayer.
— SCMP China News (@SCMPChina) February 26, 2015
The pig, which weighed over 300 pounds, reportedly remained kneeling on its forelimbs for hours in front of the temple in China’s eastern Zhejiang Province, leaving the area only after monks began chanting scriptures.
Some online commenters have taken a skeptical approach to evaluating the pig’s behavior, pointing out that a deficiency of vitamin E can lead to weakness in a pig’s front legs. But the pig’s owner told local press that this animal was healthy and that he had never seen anything like Tuesday’s events.
Local media report that the pig was one of three that escaped from a nearby enclosure on the morning of Feb. 22 and were recaptured that afternoon and sent to the slaughterhouse. The owner of the kneeling pig reportedly said he hadn’t known about the animal’s time at the temple when he sent it to be killed and that he regretted it.
WASHINGTON — It could hardly have been a more perfect storm, and it was all because of a single question in a routine briefing.
On Feb. 19, U.S. Central Command, which is responsible for military operations in the Middle East, gave reporters a standard background briefing about the ongoing campaign against the Islamic State. The official who conducted the briefing responded to one question with a discussion of a particularly sensitive part of the campaign: the U.S.-led coalition’s plans to take back Mosul, a key Iraqi city that the Islamic Statecaptured in a shocking victory last summer. The official indicated that 20,000 or more Iraqi troops would ideally start the Mosul offensive in April 2015.
Opponents of the Obama administration screamed too. “Never in our memory,”hawkish Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) wrote to President Barack Obama the day after the briefing, “can we recall an instance in which our military has knowingly briefed our own war plans to our enemies.”

In my last email I promised to update you on the latest news on our Al Sharpton story. And I have more great news to share with you now.
For starters, I’ve included a second Sharpton video that I released today (you’re one of the first to receive this, so please pass it along to your friends and family).
It shows my attempt to confront Sharpton at his National Action Network meeting.
When Sharpton was informed that I was in attendance, he became flustered and eventually resorted to divisive politics calling me a “clown” and commenting on “the foolishness of the right wing.”
You can watch how this comical scenario played out by clicking on the image below:
Right now I’m in the middle of my second day at CPAC — the Conservative Political Action Conference — and I can honestly say that I’m humbled by the recognition and support I’ve received here from prominent leaders in the conservative movement.
And in his coverage of our story Rush Limbaugh emphasized the importance of what we’ve done saying, “Now everybody knows this, but nobody has ever heard anybody in the Sharpton or Jackson camp admit it.”
Even CNN defended our undercover reporting saying, “James O’Keefe is definitely someone identified with the right but the daughter isn’t, and she’s the one who said that Al is all about the money…sometimes [being secretly recorded] is when you’re the most honest.”
Overall we scored a major victory for citizen journalism.
Finally, yesterday at CPAC I was invited on a panel to discuss voter fraud where I talked about our undercover investigation on the issue – one the traditional media refused to acknowledge until we forced them to.
As I frequently say, it’s up to us to break news and force our way into the conversation. And your support is critical to our success.
I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch the video as well as make a tax-deductible donation to Project Veritas to help us expand our citizen journalism operation, and fight back against the mainstream media’s attacks on us and shed light on their outrageously biased news coverage.
Thank you for your continued support of Project Veritas’ mission to report and expose the truth that the mainstream media chooses to ignore.
P.S. As you can see, Project Veritas is off to a great start in 2015. But our goal is to drastically expand our operations this year and beyond.
I hope you will make a generous tax-deductible contribution now to help us in our fight against the establishment mainstream media.

After the reports of attacks against Christian in Syria, Katie Gorka, President of the Council on Global Security, spoke directly to representatives of the Assyrian community currently under attack:
Around 4:00 in the morning on Monday, February 23rd, an estimated 1500 ISIS fighters attacked a series of Christian towns in northeast Syria, burning churches, taking as many as 90 hostages, and forcing hundreds to flee from their homes.
According to reports from the Syriac Military Council, a Christian self-defense organization, when ISIS fighters attacked the town of Tel Shamiram, they separated out the men, around 50 of whom they have taken into the mountains, and approximately 90 women and children are being held prisoner in the village by ISIS militants. Some residents were able to flee and they are currently sheltering in churches in Al-Hassaka and Al-Qamishli. According to one source, ISIS has taken 30 Christian young women and plans to distribute them as concubines in the town of Shadadeh.
Bassam Ishak, president of the Syriac National Council of Syria, has made several recent visits to Washington, D.C. warning of the potential for these attacks and asking for U.S. support. He said Hassaka would no doubt be targeted because it separates ISIS in Syria from ISIS in Iraq. Ishak said that the Syriac Military Council had about 1100 troops, but weapons for only 500. The area is being defended by militia that include the Syriac Military Council (MFS), Christian police (Sutoro), the Khabur Guards, and the Kurdish People Protection Units (YPG).
His Grace Mar Awa Royel, Bishop of the Assyrian Church of the East, Diocese of California, spoke earlier today with the Assyrian Bishop in the area where the attacks have taken place. Bishop Royel reported the following:
MEMRI: Fatwa On Qatari Government Website: Execution By Burning Is Permitted Under Certain Circumstances

Victor, N.Y. – Investigators arrested a Central New York man after an investigation found he had been using stolen credit card accounts to purchase more than $200,000 in jewelry.
Deputies say on February 11, 33-year-old Rahkeim Scarlett of Troy purchased a Rolex watch and diamond earrings for roughly $29,000. Before Scarlett could leave the store with his purchase, it was determined that he was using a cloned credit card with the numbers of a stolen credit card account.
Ontario County Sheriff’s deputies say Scarlett ran out of the store and hid in snow banks by Eastview Mall, but was eventually discovered and taken into custody.
After his arrest, Scarlett was reportedly found to have additional high-value jewelry items purchased using cloned credit cards in other counties throughout Eastern and Central New York.
One of those items was a large diamond ring, which Scarlett swallowed while in custody, according to deputies. The diamond was recovered several days later after passing through his digestive system.
Scarlett is accused of purchasing more than $200,000 in jewelry in Albany, Oneida, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Onondaga counties. The U.S. Secret Service is also investigating the cases.
He was arraigned on charges of identity theft, forgery, and grand larceny in Canandaigua City Court and remanded to Ontario County Jail with no bail.
More charges are pending.
As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Federal Communications Commission has agreed to impose strict new regulations on Internet service providers like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T.
The regulatory agency voted 3-2 Thursday in favor of rules aimed at enforcing what’s called “net neutrality.” That’s the idea that service providers shouldn’t intentionally block or slow web traffic, creating paid fast lanes on the Internet.
The new rules say that any company providing a broadband connection to your home or phone would have to act in the public interest and conduct business in ways that are “just and reasonable.”
Much of industry opposes the regulations, which it says constitutes dangerous government overreach. The rules are expected to trigger lawsuits, which could drag out for several years.
Internet service providers like Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile would have to act in the “public interest” when providing a mobile connection to your home or phone, under new rules being considered by the Federal Communications Commission.
The rules would put the Internet in the same regulatory camp as the telephone, banning providers from “unjust or unreasonable” business practices.
The FCC vote on the rules scheduled Thursday is considered a victory for consumer advocates and companies like Netflix and Twitter that have long warned that some providers want to create paid “fast lanes” on the Internet, edging out cash-strapped startups and smaller Internet-based businesses.
The broadband industry is expected to sue, arguing that the plan constitutes dangerous overreach. Republicans in Congress said they will try to pass legislation scrapping the rules, although it’s unlikely that such a bill would be signed into law by President Barack Obama.
“One way or another, I am committed to moving a legislative solution, preferably bipartisan, to stop monopoly-era phone regulations that harm Internet consumers and innovation,” Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, said in a statement earlier this week.
Twitter said the new rules were a matter of protecting free expression.
“Safeguarding the historic open architecture of the Internet and the ability for all users to `innovate without permission’ is critical to American economic aspirations and our nation’s global competitiveness,” Twitter wrote in a company blog post this week.
Net neutrality is the idea that websites or videos load at about the same speed. That means you won’t be more inclined to watch a particular show on Amazon Prime instead of on Netflix because Amazon has struck a deal with your service provider to load its data faster.
For years, providers mostly agreed not to pick winners and losers among Web traffic because they didn’t want to encourage regulators to step in and because they said consumers demanded it. But that started to change around 2005, when YouTube came online and Netflix became increasingly popular. On-demand video became known as data hogs, and evidence began to surface that some providers were manipulating traffic without telling consumers.
By 2010, the FCC enacted open Internet rules, but the agency’s legal approach was eventually struck down. FCC officials are hoping to erase the legal ambiguity by no longer classifying the Internet as an “information service” but a “telecommunications service” subject to Title II of the 1934 Communications Act.
That would dramatically expand regulators’ power over the industry by requiring providers to act in the public’s interest and enabling the FCC to fine companies found to be employing “unreasonable” business practices.
The FCC says it won’t apply some sections of Title II, including price controls. That means rates charged to customers for Internet access won’t be subject to preapproval. But the law allows the government to investigate if consumers complain that costs are unfair.
Also at stake Thursday was Obama’s goal of helping local governments build their own fast, cheap broadband. Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Wilson, North Carolina, have filed petitions with the agency to help override state laws that restrict them from expanding their broadband service to neighboring towns.
The FCC was considered likely to approve these petitions, which could set a precedent for other communities that want to do the same.
Nineteen states place restrictions on municipal broadband networks, many with laws encouraged by cable and telephone companies. Advocates of those laws say they are designed to protect taxpayers from municipal projects that are expensive, can fail or may be unnecessary.
A group of Coptic Christians marched to the White House on Tuesday, demanding that President Obama protect Christians from the genocide that is taking place in the Middle East.
“Obama, Obama, did you see? Christian blood in the sea,” they repeated as they marched in D.C.
As U.S. allies push back against ISIS, the Islamist militants take every opportunity to inflict acts of barbarism across Iraq and Syria. Even in retreat, they’ve taken over small villages, kidnapping Christians, and separating the men from woman and children.
No one can be certain of their fate, but if recent history is any indication, the men will be paraded out, tortured and murdered. And the Christian women and children will be sold as sex slaves.
James O’Keefe releases new undercover video showing Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown supporters being critical of Al Sharpton
Here is the new report from Project Veritas that controversial investigative reporter and activist James O’Keefe feels could put his life in danger.
In this new video, undercover Project Veritas agents spoke with the families and attorneys of Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown about Rev. Al Sharpton. Some of the people who spoke to Project Veritas revealed they think Sharpton exploits tragedy for his own personal gain.
Garner’s daughter, Erica Snipes, was interviewed by a Project Veritas undercover investigator posing as a supporter of Garner during a protest at the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island.
Project Veritas investigator: “You think Al Sharpton is kind of like a crook in a sense?”
Snipes as she is rubbing her fingers together: “He’s about this.”
Project Veritas investigator: “He’s about money with you?”
In the video, Snipes is also very critical of the Staten Island director of Sharpton’s National Action Network, Cynthia Davis.
Snipes: “She started attacking me. ‘Oh, I see that you got this flier out, how come you didn’t add the logo?’ ’’
Project Veritas investigator: “They want their logo on your fliers?”
Snipes refering to Sharpton: “Instead of me, he wants his face in front.”
Project Veritas investigator: “But it’s not about them, it’s about your dad.”
Snipes: “Exactly. Al Sharpton paid for the funeral. She’s trying to make me feel like I owe them.” she adds.
When asked about her comments in the video, Snipes denied that she said Sharpton was all about the money.
“No, I didn’t say that I think Al Sharpton is all about the money,” Snipes said, while standing by her criticism of Davis.
In response to the Project Veritas video, Sharpton said the group is “exploiting” Snipes.
“They’re splicing and dicing stuff together. It was a distortion. Erica is a sincere victim. She was not trying to infer anything with me,” Sharpton said.
“A member of O’Keefe’s team spoke with the late Eric Garner’s oldest daughter, Erica, on a brisk January evening in Staten Island. Garner did not hold back when asked about Sharpton’s involvement, stating: “he’s about the money.”
“Garner (Erica Snipes), who has become a passionate champion for social change following the death of her father, accused Sharpton and his National Action Network of “attacking” her for not giving them credit; and trying to capitalize on her father’s death.
“Garner (Erica Snipes) was visibly angered at Sharpton and the National Action Network. Indeed, rather than help, Garner (Erica Snipes) felt as if Sharpton and NAN were trying to take advantage of her,” Project Veritas said about Snipes’ comments in the video.
In the video, Sharpton is also criticized by leaders and supporters involved in the Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin shooting cases.
“He knows how to make money and get money. They’re shakedown guys to me. You know, let’s call it what it is, they’re shakedown,” Jean Petrus, a Brooklyn businessman who attended a recent Trayvon Martin Foundation fund-raiser in Florida, said in the video.
When asked about his comments, Petrus said he considers himself a “friend of Sharpton” and did not consent to be interviewed by Project Veritas.
“It was an entrapment situation. It’s really underhanded,” Petrus said.
Bishop Calvin Scott of Believers Temple in Ferguson said in the video that Sharpton “incites people for the wrong reason.”
“To some degree, he sort of incites people for the wrong reason.
“I’m in the gathering. He got them all fired up. But I just sense this is not the way you want to go,” Scott said.
Sharpton dismissed the criticism, saying he went to Ferguson at the request of Brown’s family
“I condemned the violence in Ferguson,” Sharpton said in response to the comments made in the Project Veritas video.
“Sharpton’s perception of himself is a far cry from how he is perceived by the families and communities he thrust himself upon.
“By all accounts, Sharpton appears to be abusing the bully pulpit given to him by MSNBC to capitalize on tragedies.
“It was quite apparent from the number of individuals we spoke to that Sharpton views tragedies as opportunities, and that he is willing to do whatever it takes to further his personal agenda,” O’Keefe said.
Al Sharpton, the widow of Eric Garner and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio have all responded to a new undercover video released by James O’Keefe on Tuesday that is very critical of Sharpton.
“It is very interesting that they, when they reached the people in the video, the people contradicted what was in the video.
“Not only do I think the video was taken out of context, there is nobody in that video that said I did anything with money,” Sharpton said.
Eric Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr, and widow, Esaw Snipes-Garner, issued a statement saying that the video is “deeply misleading.”

While US military and intelligence interrogation impacted people overseas, Homan Square – said to house military-style vehicles and even a cage – focuses on American citizens, most often poor, black and brown. ‘When you go in,’ Brian Jacob Church told the Guardian, ‘nobody knows what happened to you.’ Video: Phil Batta for the Guardian
The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site.
The facility, a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side known as Homan Square, has long been the scene of secretive work by special police units. Interviews with local attorneys and one protester who spent the better part of a day shackled in Homan Square describe operations that deny access to basic constitutional rights.
Alleged police practices at Homan Square, according to those familiar with the facility who spoke out to the Guardian after its investigation into Chicago police abuse, include:
- Keeping arrestees out of official booking databases.
- Beating by police, resulting in head wounds.
- Shackling for prolonged periods.
- Denying attorneys access to the “secure” facility.
- Holding people without legal counsel for between 12 and 24 hours, including people as young as 15.
At least one man was found unresponsive in a Homan Square “interview room” and later pronounced dead.
‘Lone Survivor’ Marcus Luttrell Has to Restrain Himself On-Air When Asked This Question About Chris Kyle’s Killer
Marcus Luttrell, a former Navy SEAL and author of “Lone Survivor,” was completely unfiltered on Wednesday night as he reacted to a Texas jury’s decision to unanimously convict Eddie Ray Routh for murdering legendary Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield.
At one point, Luttrell had to restrain himself from answering a question about Routh on “national television.”
Luttrell posted a chilling warning for Routh Tuesday on Facebook, writing, “To Eddie Ray Routh, you thought you had PTSD before .?? Wait till the boys in TDC Find out you killed a TX hero.”
“It’s not secret that usually I don’t have a filter,” Luttrell told Fox News when asked about the post. “What comes through my head is going to come out of my mouth. … I don’t know that he’s going to read that, but I’m sure someone will get it to him what’s about to go down when he gets where he’s going.”
He continued: “You’ve got a guy who, one was copping to something that wasn’t real. And two, shot a guy in the back, which is a cowardice act. It’s not going to bode well, we’ll just leave it at that.”
When asked about assertions that post-traumatic stress disorder may have contributed to the killings of Kyle and Littlefield, Luttrell said the claim is “garbage.”
“First of all, having PTSD is not a straight line to commit murder. It’s not a straight line to do anything breaking the law. Because if it is, basically you’re saying if I cop to having PTSD, I can go out and slap somebody around all I want and when the cops show up I can claim I am a veteran and I got PTSD — that’s not how that works.”
Finally, when asked about Routh’s non-reaction to his guilty verdict, Luttrell paused and then replied sternly, “We don’t need to get into it on national television.”
RUSH: On Thursday the FCC is gonna vote on net neutrality. I have some people sending me e-mail, asking me what it is. I’ll sum it up as best I can for you, but what is going to happen Thursday is a direct result of Obama hijacking the effort — essentially, let me just put it to you this way. Do you own a website, do you operate a website? If Obama gets his way, you’re gonna have to get a license for it just like radio and TV stations get licenses, because the Internet is gonna be subject to regulation under Title II like broadcast facilities are. Cable is not, but over the air broadcast — But they can’t wait to regulate the Internet, folks, they just can’t wait.
There’s too much freedom out there. There’s too many people, quote, unquote, “out of control” on the Internet, and Obama and the Democrats have gotta get it controlled. And the way they’re doing it is capitalizing on the stupidity of young people. Maybe “stupidity” is the wrong word. Ignorance and lack of information resulting from they haven’t lived long enough to know.
The way net neutrality is being sold to Millennials is — and I read these tech bloggers, these little guys. I read ‘em, they hate their cable providers. They hate their web service providers, Internet service, they hate ‘em. Just like you were made to hate Big Oil and just like you were made to hate Big Tobacco. Just like you’ve been oriented to hate Big Anything, Big Retail, big box retail like Walmart. The Democrats’ enemies list now includes all of the telecommunications companies and the Internet service providers.
The way Obama is targeting support, gaining support from young people on this, is he’s got them confused that what he’s gonna do with net neutrality is punish the people they hate. Does this sound familiar? They’re gonna go after Comcast, Time Warner, any other telecommunications, cell provider, Internet service, they’re gonna really hammer ‘em, and they’re gonna make sure that they don’t overcharge. Then they’re gonna make sure they provide equal access to high speed. The big, rich people aren’t gonna get any more access to high speed than people who can’t afford it are, and the government’s gonna take care of it, and the government’s gonna punish, and government’s gonna make people behave right.
The government’s gonna make it all fair. The government’s gonna make it all equal. And that’s what they’ve been led to believe. The same government that has, right in front of these little people, these young people’s faces, blown up the health care system. The same government that has made a mockery of HealthCare.gov. The same government that has messed up and on the verge of totally destroying, under the guise of transforming it, the best health care system in the world.
While that is happening, I mean, you can’t have any better evidence of the incompetence of bureaucracies to handle massive market maneuvers like health care. You can’t have a better example of government failure than what they’re trying to do with health care, or anything that Obama has touched on the economy. And yet, in the midst of being able to see all of this failure, in the midst of witnessing all of this government incompetence, despite that, we still have people thinking the government’s gonna get it right when they start regulating the Internet.
Now, I’m sorry, folks, you can blame Obama — and I do — and you can blame the FCC and its commissioners — and I do — and you can blame politicians, but ultimately this falls back on the gullibility and the ignorance, dare I say stupidity of some people, because it’s happening right in front of us. The very government that can’t do anything right in terms of improving things that it claims to fix is eminently trusted to get it right on the Internet. And I just want to be around when these people have to get licenses for their websites.
Do you know what happens when you get a license to own a radio or TV station? You have to prove to the government every three years, five, I don’t know what it is now, maybe it’s 10, but you have to prove that you are operating responsibly. You have to prove that you are adequately serving the community. Blah, blah, blah. The point is your freedom to operate your website is going to be dependent on the government approving what you do.
Do you want somebody like Obama and his Regime in charge of that? The Internet is the essence, in terms of the comparison to things elsewhere in America, the essence of independence, liberty, and freedom right now.
Now, to some of you who might be sensitive to the argument, “Well, what you know, Rush, those Internet providers, they do charge too much.” Folks, nobody’s gonna sit here and make the claim — how best to describe this? The people who are the best customers of these providers are gonna get the best service. It’s just the way it is. It’s that way in health care. You can set up national health care like the Brits did. The rich people don’t use it. They’ve got their own network of hospitals and doctors that have opted out, and it’s gonna be like that here.
No matter how much socialism you have, no matter how much government attempts to make everybody the same and everybody equal, you’re never gonna get rid of the rich. Look at Obama. If there’s ever been a president that’s told everybody he’s targeting the rich, gonna get fair, get even, the rich are getting richer under Obama, aren’t they? The rich, the finance people, the banks, they’re getting richer. They got bailed out. I thought Obama was getting even with these guys.
The exact opposite of what these people think the government’s going to do for them under net neutrality is what’s gonna happen, the exact opposite. It’s gonna get slower, it’s gonna get more clogged up, and they’re gonna have less access than they have now. But they have been so conditioned. The left, boy, does it profit from hatred. It profits, it benefits, it stokes it. And then they come in after they create all this hatred or add to the hatred that already exists, wherever it is, they add to it and they create all this chaos, and they gin up all this emotion, and then they come in as the guys wearing the white hats.
“We’re gonna make it fair for you. We’re gonna make it equal for you. We’re gonna make sure that if you can only afford $15 a month for Internet service, your speeds are gonna be just as fast as people who are paying a thousand dollars a month.” Well, I’m sorry, it’s not gonna ever happen. The providers are gonna service the people that pay ‘em a thousand bucks a month before they service the people that pay ‘em 15. It’s just the way it is. “It’s not fair, Mr. Limbaugh, it’s not fair, I don’t have a thousand.” You don’t right now, but you might as you get older.
Anyway, you can’t legislate this kind of stuff, but people live in a never-ending phase or state of blind-faith hope that the government can come along and address, redress and eliminate every injustice out there, be it economic, be it cultural, and they have yet to succeed at it. I mean, we’re living in the middle of the absolute most glaring examples of government incompetence, as administered by Obama and his administration, and yet despite the evidence that they don’t know what they’re doing, despite the lies — How many times did people hear from Obama, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Your premium is gonna come $2,500 down.”
It didn’t. None of it’s happened. Everybody’s premiums have gone up, out of pocket’s gone up, premiums have gone up, deductibles have gone up. The number of insured has not gone up. Nothing’s happened according to the promises, and yet when Obama comes along and tells ‘em he’s gonna lower their cable rates, he’s gonna raise their speeds, he’s gonna make sure their providers get — they believe it. They believe it, in the midst of knowing full well they have been lied to I don’t know how many times about Obamacare alone.
Maybe I’m making the mistake of assuming they know they’ve been lied to. Maybe they don’t even know that. Maybe my mistake is assuming they are more aware than they are. In addition to websites needing a license to operate — (interruption) You hadn’t thought of that? Why else do they want to regulate the Internet? Net neutrality, that’s another one of these bogus titles for an operation that’s the exact opposite. It’s not gonna be neutral. That’s designed to make people think that nobody’s gonna get special favorite treatment, nobody’s gonna get better service.
It’s designed to lasso and rope people in. It’s just like you could call anything you want the Civil Rights Act of 2015, it could pass no matter what’s in it. Net neutrality, yes, net freedom, yes. It just means that the bigger providers can’t rip people off anymore. That’s what they think it means, and that’s all they think it means. Then they have to get their websites registered, and then the regulations, because you know Obama is incorporating the Federal Election Commission in this. You know that? The FEC? (interruption) Well, because so much of the Internet is perceived to be in-kind campaign contributions.
So the FCC and the FEC will now start regulating the Internet. And just as there have been with Obamacare, there will be waivers, exemptions for certain people from the regulations that are put in place to regulate the Internet. And just as the Obama waivers for Obamacare were designed to shield the absolute disaster that was awaiting everybody upon full implementation, waivers were granted so that Obama would not be punished prior to elections, waivers were granted to donors, waivers were granted to individuals and businesses friendly to Obama.
The same thing is gonna happen with the Internet and how it’s regulated. Right now the Internet has very little regulation at all. I’m stunned with the ease in which Obama has had in getting so many young people to sign on eagerly to the idea of regulating the Internet. As long as — this is the way it’s always worked and it just amazes me that it keeps working — as long as the regulation of the Internet is designed to punish the rich, then you get people to support it. “If the regulation and licensing of the Internet is designed to really sock it to the cable companies and the cellular companies and the Internet service providers, if that’s what you’re gonna do, I’m all for it because I hate my cable company, I hate my cell company, I hate my provider, and as much as you can punish them, I’m all for it.”
They look at government as being able to wield the power they wish they could wield. Hillary Clinton has been wanting to control the Internet since 1993. Net neutrality is as honest a name as is the Affordable Care Act, or as was the Fairness Doctrine. It’s just the latest left-wing power grab.
You know how they want to get rid of Fox News? You know how they’d love to get rid of talk radio? Well, they’re gonna be able to get rid of people and things they don’t like on the Internet. That’s why they want regulatory control over it, and, by the way, the mechanism that they want to use to control the Internet falls under the aegis of Title II. Title II dates back to the 1930s. That’s how old it is.
Let me take a brief time-out. I got a couple sound bites on this. Michael Powell, who I think is the son of Colonel Colin Powell — general. Sorry. General Powell. He was a former commissioner of the FCC.
RUSH: “As the Federal Communications Commission and Federal Election Commission toy with regulating aspects of the Internet, critics on those agencies are warning that speed and freedom of speech are in jeopardy.” And they are right. “In a joint column, Federal Communications Commission member Ajit Pai and Federal Election Commission member Lee Goodman, leveled the boom on the Obama-favored regulations, essentially charging that it will muck up the freedom the nation has come to expect from the Internet.”
They essentially charged that it will muck up the freedom the nation has come to expect from the Internet. “In one key passage of the column published in Politico, the duo wrote Monday that heavy-handed FCC regulations like those imposed in Europe will significantly slow down Internet speech. ‘These Internet regulations will deter broadband deployment, depress network investment and slow broadband speeds. How do we know? Compare Europe, which has long had utility-style regulations, with the United States, which has embraced a light-touch regulatory model. Broadband speeds in the United States, both wired and wireless, are significantly faster than those in Europe.'” That’s true, if you’ve never been. “Broadband investment in the United States is several multiples that of Europe. And broadband’s reach is much wider in the United States, despite its much lower population density.”
And the reason is that it’s less regulated. It costs less to build up and build out your high speed network. There are fewer payoffs required. It makes no sense in Europe to do it. That’s what’s called social justice. Democrat liberal social justice is never the equalization of people by raising or elevating people at the bottom. It is by lowering people at the top and punishing them. And that’s exactly what Obama’s net neutrality will do, or seek to do.
Better stated, what Obama’s net neutrality falsely promises people in this country is that these big providers, the cellular companies, the cable companies, the satellite companies, the Internet providers, they’re gonna get hammered finally. They’re gonna be told that they’re overcharging. They’re gonna be told that they’re throttling Internet speeds and that they can’t do it anymore. And the bourgeois in the United States, “Yeah, yeah, man, you punish ‘em, dude, you sock it to ‘em, dude, you make ‘em pay.” What happens? Cable service, satellite service, Internet broadband service all get worse. And that’s how everything is made fair. Nobody at the bottom has their service elevated.
It doesn’t work that way. It never does when the left gets a hold of things. This is called social justice. (interruption) Oh, yeah, you bring Netflix into this and you really get these young Millennials all worked up. Netflix is out there telling everybody they’re gonna be one of the big beneficiaries of this ’cause they compete with all these providers and so forth.
RUSH: I checked the e-mail during the break, and it’s the same old question. “Rush, I haven’t seen any of this. How do you know? How do you know this is what Obama means by net neutrality? I haven’t seen anything.” Why do you think you haven’t seen any of this? The fact that you haven’t seen any of this, you interpret as maybe evidence I don’t know what I’m talking about? Why don’t you ask yourself why Obama has not released what his regulations and his ideas for net neutrality are?
And let me give you a little reminder. How many of you saw the legislation that became Obamacare before it was voted on? Answer: Very few of you. Remember Nancy Pelosi? “We have to pass it to find out what’s in it.” Do you think if you had known well in advance everything that was in Obamacare, you would have in your blanket way supported it? I’m talking to young people, here, not you in the audience. I’m talking to young people who are all for net neutrality.
I hear from ‘em.
I got these e-mails.
“How do you know? How do you know? I haven’t seen any of that.”
Why haven’t you seen it? You haven’t seen it because Obama hasn’t released it. Obama has not released the details of his plan, his program for net neutrality. That’s why everybody’s able to make it up whatever they want it to be, just like the Obama campaign in 2008! Whatever you want him to be, he is. If he’s a great unifier, that’s what he’s gonna be. If he’s gonna make America loveed, that’s what he’s gonna do. You had no idea who he was.
Let me ask you this. Put your thinking caps on. How many times in the last 20 years do you recall various elements of the media saying there’s too much democracy in America? “There are too many voices. We gotta pare these down! There’s too much confusion, too many viewpoints out there; it’s confusing to the people!” I remember every one of ‘em. I remember me being on the cover of TIME Magazine in the mid-nineties, and the headline was: “Is Rush Limbaugh Good For America?”
Why were they asking that question?
Because my point of view was not theirs.
Mrs. Clinton, in 1998, said the following: “We are all going to have to rethink how we deal with this Internet thing because the there are all these competing values without any kind of editing function or gatekeeping function. What does it mean to have the right to defend your reputation?” That was Hillary in 1998, sending a dog whistle about getting rid of Matt Drudge. It was in the midst of the Lewinsky event.
She was worried, as were all these libs, and they have been ever since their media monopoly was blown up. “There are too many voices. It’s too confusing. There are too many points of view.” That ought to just offend the hell out of everybody, particularly you young people. It ought to offend you and cause genuine anger among you. Too many viewpoints? “We gotta whittle ‘em down! We gotta get rid of some of these really extreme points of view. It’s causing chaos in the country.
“It’s causing tumult. It’s creating confusion.” Who are they? Who are they to say there are too many opinions when we have the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment explains that codifies freedom of speech? My point, this is something they have been salivating over getting control of, the Internet, for 17 to 20 years, just as like they salivated for control over health care for 50 years. And it’s almost a repeat process.
Obama’s got his massive plan, but nobody’s seen it. He won’t release it. So everybody’s able to create off “net neutrality” whatever they want it to be. You’ve got Obama administration officials here and there who will drop little hints about getting even with the service providers or making sure that small customers do not have their speeds throttled and cut back, and thereby not reaching their data limit sooner and being charged for more data after they have reached their monthly allotted limit.
They dropped enough hints to make young people think that the real target of net neutrality is, once again, the big corporations. “Yeah! Obama’s gonna come give ‘em what-for. Obama’s gonna come tame ‘em, just like he did AIG, and just like he did all the fat cat financial company CEOs. Yeah! And if they don’t fall in line, we’re gonna send protesters for their front yards. We’re gonna get even with these people ripping us off. I don’t want to have to watch cable TV to I want to watch Breaking Bad.
“I want to be able to stream it on my phone, and I don’t want to be overcharged for it. I want to be able to cut the cord, and I want to make sure that the company providing me with Breaking Bad on my iPhone does not overcharge.” Obama comes along and says, “That’s exactly what I’m gonna do.” Really? You think it’s gonna get cheaper? You know, HBO is gonna provide a stand alone streaming service, HBO GO.
To get it now, you have to be a cable or satellite subscriber to HBO, and then the service is so-called “free.” It isn’t because you have to be a customer now. But HBO’s gonna cut the cord itself. HBO’s gonna provide HBO GO, streaming only, and one of the biggest surprises awaiting young Millennials is how much they’re gonna charge for it. They can charge pretty much what they are being paid now by each cable customer, and maybe add 20 or 30% to it.
They’ll get away with it, because HBO is not considered an evil cable company or provider. “HBO’s got the content! Yeah, HBO? We love HBO! That’s where we get all our sex, and that’s where we get all the gay-lesbian stuff, and that’s where get all the drama. That’s Game of Thrones! Yeah, man. Let me on have it my phone or my iPad. I don’t want to have to have cable for it.” Fine. They’re gonna charge you for it.
And every one of these providers, every one of these content providers that cuts the cord out of cable, out of satellite, they’re gonna charge, and you’re gonna end up paying more for all these services you want than you do combined in your cable package. But they’re not thinking this far ahead because right now they’re being made satisfied and happy. The idea that Obama is gonna cut these providers and these cell companies and these telecoms down to size finally is just like back in our younger days, folks.
They were gonna get even with Big Oil. Yes siree, they were gonna get even with Big Tobacco! “Yeah, man, they’re gonna get punished. They’re gonna have their hats handed to ‘em. Right on!” It never works out the way it’s planned. Social justice. It’s social justice, making it worse for everybody under the guise of equality or fairness or what have you. Mark my words. Here it is February 24, 2015: That’s what’s going to happen. And you know something else? For wealthy people, it isn’t gonna change.
They’re gonna be able to pay whatever they want to get the same service they’ve got now or even better, and there will be people that will bring it for ‘em. There always will be. No matter what Obama does, no matter how much he regulates, no matter how much he tries, the wealthy are still gonna be able to get whatever download speeds they want. They’re gonna be able to get whatever services and content-provider service they want.
They have the ability to pay for it, and as long as they’ve got the ability to pay for it, there’s gonna be somebody to provide it. So the rich are not gonna get shafted, the rich are not gonna get stung, the rich are not gonna get punished. It’s just service for most everybody else is going to deteriorate, under the guise of making it equal for everybody — and “neutral.” Yes, net neutrality! Now, these two guys…
Ajit Pai, FCC commissioner, is one of the Republican members, and Lee Goodman of the FEC. They warned, they said, “Internet freedom works. It is difficult to imagine where we would be today had the government micromanaged the Internet for the past two decades as it does Amtrak and the US Postal Service.” They gonna turn the Internet into a utility, folks, licensed utilities. Next, they wrote this: “They don’t need to shift control of the Internet to bureaucracies in Washington.
“Let’s leave the power where it belongs: With the American people. When it comes to Americans’ ability to access online content or offer political speech online, there isn’t anything broken for the government to fix. To paraphrase President Ronald Reagan: ‘Internet regulation isn’t the solution to a problem. Internet regulation is the problem.'” All well and good, but I thought the era of Reagan was over. Isn’t that what a lot of Republicans have been telling us for a couple of years or longer?
“Yeah, the era of Reagan is over! That’s old-fashioned. Those are old days. Reaganism doesn’t apply to the modern era,” and yet it always does. They are right: Internet regulation is not the solution to a problem; internet regulation’s gonna become problem. Michael Powell, former commissioner at the FCC (Republican, obviously) was on Squawk Box on CNBC today, and one of the cohosts, Andrew Ross Sorkin, asked him a question.
Sorkin said, “One of the things we’ve all talked about is what an appeal looks like and how long it takes and what that does to investment during that period. Now, we heard from the CEO of AT&T who says that he plans to pull back. Can you speak to that broadly from all of your constituents that you’ve been talking…” This is assuming that net neutrality becomes law of the land and that there are then lawsuits, appeals, to try to stop it. Michael Powell answers that question.
POWELL: Litigation with FCC appeals is a pretty long, drawn-out process. I would predict that it’s at least two and up to five years before the rules are fully and finally settled. The original classification decision went all the way to the Supreme Court and took a good 3-1/2, four years. They’ve understood the law for 15 years, and suddenly that’s gonna be radically transformed to a new style of regulation, which is gonna prompt a whole myriad of questions that are gonna await answers, and I think that’s gonna have an impact on investment choices.
RUSH: See, they’re talking about what’s gonna happen with the investments of people buying stock in the providers. That’s not what interests me about that the CNBC. But what interests me in this is once they put it in there, you’re not gonna unravel it, and if it takes two to five years for an appeal to be heard, you’re not gonna unravel anything just like you’re not gonna unravel amnesty once it starts. This is what Obama knows.
It’s gonna be total chaos. He doesn’t care!
Health care is total chaos. He doesn’t care. The bottom line is, he runs it. So then the next question came to Joe Kernen who said, “Well, when the adults in the room finally speak up and the FCC chairman, Tom Wheeler, sees what the end result’s gonna be, won’t he say, ‘Maybe I need to rethink this?’ Is it too late for that or are we just gonna go headlong into it?” The vote’s Thursday, Kernen saying, “Wait a minute! The FCC commissioner might wake up all of a sudden and see how bad this is,” and this is what Powell says to that.
POWELL: I think they’re locked and loaded and it’s too late that they’re gonna turn back. They’re gonna vote on Thursday, and when you talk about the moments of shock, I think watching the president of the United States come on a YouTube video and direct the FCC to adopt a very specific regulatory result, I think that was shocking.
RUSH: Why? Why was that shocking? To see Obama try to take control of something, why in the world is that shocking? Why shouldn’t that be accompanied by now? Why is it shocking that Obama would do a YouTube video aimed at the very young people we’re talking about, demanding that the FCC immediately take over the regulation of the Internet? He doesn’t have the authority to do that, just like he doesn’t have the authority to grant blanket amnesty or any of this stuff.
We have a breaking investigative story that we’re going to release next week.
|Over the weekend, ISIS beheaded 21 Christians in Libya. President Obama promptly issued a condemnation of the attack, but he neglected one word: Christian.
The same week, the President said that the Jews murdered in Paris by Islamic terrorists at a kosher supermarket were attacked “randomly”.
See, to the President, ISIS isn’t Islamic, and their victims aren’t Christian or Jewish. ISIS is truly just a manifestation of how terrible America and Israel are. If only Americans would get off their “high horse” and stop criticizing radical Islam, everything would be okay. If Israel stopped trying to survive and just allowed Obama to give Iran freedom to go nuclear, all would be well.
Meanwhile, the media give Obama a free pass. They’re too busy criticizing Christians for the Crusades or Benjamin Netanyahu for speaking before Congress to hold the President to his duty to keep us safe from enemies foreign and domestic.
We at TruthRevolt are dedicated to holding both the President and the media accountable. That’s why I create videos watched by hundreds of thousands of people explaining the myth of the tiny radical Muslim minority and why you shouldn’t believe the media lie that actual Jews vote leftist. That’s why Bill Whittle uncovers the truth about Palestinian terrorism and their allies in the United States. That’s why Andrew Klavan stands up for waterboarding of Islamic terrorists — and calls for its addition to the Olympics as a sport.
That’s also why our TruthRevolt activists are fighting members of the media tooth and nail every day, and why our StudentRevolt activists are fighting on our campuses to uncover the nastiness of the anti-American campus leftist jihad.
But we need your help. Your donation of $20 or more today will go directly to the production of videos watched by an estimated 12 million people in the last few months alone. It will go toward an exciting new campus campaign to shed light on the allies of Islamic terrorism on campus. It will go toward helping us hold the media accountable.
We can win, with your help.
Stand against the President’s cowardice, the media’s lies, and the professors’ propaganda. Your donation makes all the difference.

New Edition of Homeland Security’s “Risk Lexicon”
A DHS report defines 123 terms related to homeland security strategies, programs, efforts and activities. The new document, which updates the original lexicon released in September 2008, includes 50 new terms and definitions and updated definitions for 23 original terms from the 2008 edition.
“Developing terms, definitions, extended definitions, annotations, and examples is accomplished through a RSC working group known as the Risk Lexicon Working Group, which is open to all Department of Homeland Security Components,” according to theGovMonitor.com. “Definitions are validated against glossaries used by other countries and professional associations.”
The aim of the lexicon is: to promulgate a common language; improve communications for the department and its partners; facilitate the clear exchange of structured and unstructured data; and garner credibility “by providing consistency and clear understanding with regard to the usage of terms by the risk community.”

Muslim Gangs Continue To Terrorize 55 Neighborhoods, Police Powerless – Not just Sweden but all Europe and America!
The situation in the gang-controlled no-go zones of Sweden is deteriorating rapidly. Following the police report conceding the areas to the primarily Muslim immigrant gangs, the Swedish ambulance union is now demanding military grade protection gear to enter the no-go zones.
There have been a number of violent incidents lately, where thugs attack ambulances responding to calls in the zones. Thugs have slashed the tires of the ambulances, smashed their windshields and hurled large rocks from overpasses, while the paramedics themselves are subjected to both armed and unarmed physical violence on a regular basis. The situation has become so dire that the ambulance union now demands dramatically improved protection for its members. (RELATED: Swedish Police Release Extensive Report Detailing Control Of 55 ‘No-Go Zones’ By Muslim Criminal Gangs)
Iraqi local officials in Iraq’s town of al-Baghdadi have warned of another ISIS mass burning massacre. The terror organization surrounded a compound several days ago that houses more than 1000 families and burned 45 people alive.
“ISIS has killed more than 150 people from al-Obaid tribe…some of them were burned alive and some were beheaded…they were policemen…some of them fought against ISIS before,” said sheikh Mal Allah al-Obaidi, the head of the local council in the al-Baghdadi.
An Iraqi air base is located next to al-Baghdadi. More than 300 US military service members are providing training, and coordinating US air raids there. As the US military official at the central command announced that the US will train 12 Iraqi brigades to start an Iraqi operation to liberate the northern city of Mosul in April or May, reports emerged suggesting US Marines will conduct a limited operation in the border area between Iraq, Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia to strike ISIS jihadists who control the border area.
“US forces have landed in al-Habbaniya air base,” said Saadon Shehan, a blogger from al-Ramadi, the provincial capital of al-Anbar province in western Iraq.
The target of the Marines supposed operation is to cut a major funding source to ISIS by ending its control of the border area. It is estimated that ISIS makes $150,000 daily by collecting money from travelers using the Iraqi – Jordanian highway.
The town of al-Baghdadi has been surrounded by ISIS for eight months, which launched numerous unsuccessful attacks to capture it. Finally a series of attacks carried out by suicide bombers in the town a week ago gave ISIS control of a major part of the city, including the residential compound.
Three Short Sentences:
These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:
1.) We are advised NOT to judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge
ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works. And here’s another one worth considering.
2.) Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money.
How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What’s interesting is the first group worked for their money, but the second didn’t. Think about it… Last but not least;
3.) Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping payments to illegal aliens such as monthly payments for each child, money for housing, Food Stamps, free education including college and also the right to vote?
Am I the only one missing something here?
If not, pass this along. Everyone should see it.

Traverse City, Mich. (AP) — For the second consecutive winter, bitter weather threatens to turn the surface of the Great Lakes into a vast frozen plain.
The federal Great Lakes research laboratory in Ann Arbor reports Friday that nearly 81 percent of the five lakes’ surface area is ice-covered. On Thursday, the ice cover exceeded 85 percent.
The lab’s George Leshkevich says the small drop-off probably happened because winds broke apart some ice, creating open spots.
Still, satellite imagery shows this year’s ice cover has grown rapidly, nearly doubling over the past couple of weeks.
Records show the lakes’ most widespread freeze was 94.7 percent in 1979. The ice cover topped out at 92.2 percent last March.
Coast Guard spokesman Lorne Thomas in Cleveland says another difficult season is in store for icebreaking vessels.

DHS Reveals Citizens Who Love Constitution More Dangerous Than ISIS – February 20, 2015 by Steven Ahle
Just after the close of Obama’s summit on extremism, the DHS released it’s report on extremism. Nowhere in the document does it mention ISIS ,Al Qaeda or any other extremist terror organization. Their determination? Sovereign citizens.
On April 5th of 2013, I broke a national story about the DHS targeting Christians and sovereign citizens. The DHS was paying for a program whereby state police would train local law enforcement how to spot Christian and sovereign citizen terrorists. Glenn Beck read my story and began investigating to find out if I was on the level or just another tinfoil hatted maniac. He found out that not only did I have my facts right, but that I even produced a witness who sat in on the training. He was shocked and read my article on his program. (Fast forward to 4:40)
Joe Newby, a good friend and a reporter for the Examiner, called the DHS and he was referred to a statement put out by the department in an effort to discredit my investigation:
“The training referenced in the Undersheriff’s letter was not done in coordination with DHS and no DHS training materials were part of the prepared presentation,” the Homeland Security release read. “DHS provides law enforcement around the country with access to training that focuses on the behaviors and indicators of violent behavior, regardless of the ideology that may motivate it.”
I was unable to talk to the trainer, Trooper Joe Kluczynski, because he left his job with the Colorado State Police. He had gotten himself a new job….working for the DHS. They refused to make him available for interviews. What a shock, huh?
However, I had something even better than an interview with someone that was bound to lie. I had found a previously classified document from the DHS, sent to law enforcement across the country:
Why does the government consider this grandmother public enemy No. 1? Religious Persecution in America
By Todd Starnes
Published February 19, 2015 http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2015/02/19/why-does-government-consider-this-grandmother-public-enemy-no-1/
Meet Barronelle Stutzman — who is being treated as Washington State’s Public Enemy No. 1.
Stutzman is a grandmother, a devout Southern Baptist and the owner of a small flower shop. The 70-year-old Christian is also opposed to gay marriage — a religious belief that could cost Stutzman her business, her life-savings and even her home.
A Washington judge ruled Feb. 18 that Stutzman, the owner of Arlene’s Flowers, violated the law when she refused to provide flowers to a same-sex couple for their wedding.
“If you disagree with the state – then you’re out of business,” she told me in an exclusive interview. “As a business owner, it’s really frightening that they can rule that everything I have will be lost because of my disagreement with a stand.”
Superior Court Judge Alex Ekstrom found Stutzman had violated the state consumer protection and anti-discrimination law. He rejected arguments that her actions were protected by her freedom of speech and religion.
The Seattle Times reported that Judge Ekstrom determined that “while religious beliefs are protected by the First Amendment, actions based on those beliefs aren’t necessarily protected.”
So it’s okay to believe in God – so long as you don’t follow the tenets of your faith?
“For over 135 years, the Supreme Court has held that laws may prohibit religiously motivated action, as opposed to belief,” Ekstrom wrote in remarks reported by The Times. “The Courts have confirmed the power of the Legislative Branch to prohibit conduct it deems discriminatory, even where the motivation for that conduct is grounded in religious belief.”
Kristen Waggoner, an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, called the ruling “terrifying.”
“A government that can force you to say something and express a message that is so deeply contrary to your core beliefs is terrifying,” Waggoner told me. “We are entering a whole new realm when we force people to express themselves and use their heart, their head and their hands to create something that violates who they are.”
Waggoner accused Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson of being on a personal crusade to destroy the elderly grandmother.
“He’s using the full power of his office to personally and professionally destroy her,” she said. “He’s trying to send a message — you better shut up if you disagree or you are going to lose everything you own.”
Waggoner is referring to the Attorney General’s decision to seek legal fees and penalties not only against Arlene’s Flower shop – but also Stutzman personally.
The law allows for penalties of up to $2,000 per violation — and Waggoner said the flower shop has been inundated with requests to provide flowers to gay weddings. Each one of those requests would be a violation, she said.
“Every time someone comes in you get tagged with a $2,000 fine,” she said. “They’re setting her up.”
And should they lose the appeal, there’s a very real chance Stutzman could lose her home.
“The killer part is the attorneys fees and the court costs,” Waggoner said. “She is liable to the state and the American Civil Liberties Union.”
She estimated the costs of an appeal reaching well into seven figures.
A spokesman for the Attorney General’s office told The Seattle Times they anticipated going after both Stutzman and her business.
“The law is clear: if you choose to provide a service to couples of the opposite sex, you must provide the same service to same-sex couples,” the attorney general said in a prepared statement.
Stutzman told me she has no plans to renounce her faith or her religious beliefs – no matter what the state may do.
“There’s the ACLU’s side and the Attorney General’s side and then there’s God’s side,” she said. “Which side would you like to be on?”
Stutzman’s run-in with the government came about after what she thought was an innocent conversation with longtime customer Robert Ingersoll back in 2013.
Robert Ingersoll asked her to provide flowers for his upcoming wedding to Curt Freed.
“He came in and we were just chit chatting and he said that he was going to get married,” Stutzman recalled in court documents. “And I just put my hands on his and told him because of my relationship with Jesus Christ I couldn’t do that, couldn’t do his wedding.”
That led to a lawsuit — pitting the state of Washington along with the gay couple against Stutzman.
The legal battle has also served as a real life lesson for her 23 grandchildren. She hopes they learn that it’s important to stand up for their convictions.
“Don’t let someone bully you into doing what they want you to do if it’s against your convictions,” she said.
Waggoner said her client has been graceful under a barrage of hateful attacks.
“It’s all about name calling and bullying and shaming people into shutting up,” she said.
Remember when our elected leaders told us that same-sex marriage would not impact anyone? Remember how we were told to live and let live?
“We were sold a lie,” Waggoner told me. “It’s clear same-sex marriage does affect us. It’s depriving people of their freedom — of their God-given freedoms.”
And as Barronelle Stutzman, of Richland, Wash., learned — woe be to any Christian business owner who refuses to participate in a same-sex wedding.
“It’s me today,” Stutzman said. “I’m just a little grain of sand — but it’s you tomorrow.”

Students banned from chanting at all sporting events
High school students from Idalou, Texas were accused of racism Tuesday after chanting “USA!” at a girls’ basketball game in nearby Slaton.
Fans of the Idalou Wildcats, who reportedly began the chant after the Slaton Tigers were defeated, were labeled racist due to Slaton school district’s large Hispanic population.
Speaking with Fox 34 News, Slaton Superintendent Julee Becker argued that the chant was used in a divisive and offensive manner.
“The chant USA should be for all of us, it should be inclusive,” Becker said. “We are making other people aware of what that behavior by just a few, what impact it had on us, us as a tiger nation and family.”
Idalou Superintendent Jim Waller immediately responded to the accusation with a written and verbal apology, ordering his district to discontinue all chanting due to the “perception it creates.”

Well, even the Muslims declare that the President is heavily involved in the Muslim Brotherhood. Not that anyone should be surprised by that..but still, its a bit creepy to see the President on the front page of a Eqyptian newspaper:
Tweets from the Director of Research at the Brookings Center in Doha, Qatar revealed disturbing accusations regarding the Obama family and the president’s life in Indonesia.
“Newspaper also claims that son of MB leader threatened Obama w- release of ‘papers’ revealing his MB membership,” Shadi Hamid writes, via Al Jazeera.
The newspaper not only accuses Obama of being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, but it also claims that the president’s half-brother Malik is an al-Qaeda activist.
Jonathan Spyer, senior researcher at the Global Research in International Affairs Center, told TheBlaze that the Egyptian newspaper Al-Wafd alleges that Barack Obama originally embraced the Muslim Brotherhood while living…

Why Muslims and Non-Muslims Cannot Reform Islam
The other day a colleague of mine named Martel Sobieskey, alerted me to YouTube video of the recent Frank Gaffney “lead” Defeat Jihad Summit. Just as in the past, Team Gaffney has no real long-term answers in winning this war. In fact this time Frank truly showed just how uninformed he is on Islam itself, and his straight out fear of naming Islam itself as the enemy

NEW YORK (AP) – Former New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has been indicted on three charges after being arrested in a federal bribery case last month.
Silver was indicted Thursday by a grand jury in Manhattan federal court. The charges are honest services mail fraud, honest services wire fraud and extortion under the color of his official duties.
Lawyers Joel Cohen and Steven Molo say they will “fight for his total vindication.” Silver has said he is confident it will come.
Silver had led the Assembly for over 20 years when he was arrested. Prosecutors said he had collected nearly $4 million in bribes and kickbacks since 2002 and disguised the proceeds as legitimate income.
The Democrat has since resigned as speaker but has said he intends to keep his Assembly seat.
Scientist Fired After Soft Tissue Found On Dinosaur Fossil… Finding Undermines Belief Behemoths Roamed Earth 60 million Years Ago
Finding undermines belief behemoths roamed earth 60 million years ago
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Attorneys for a California State University, Northridge scientist who was terminated from his job after discovering soft tissue on a triceratops fossil have filed a lawsuit against the university.
While at the Hell Creek Formation excavation site in Montana, researcher Mark Armitage discovered what he believed to be the largest triceratops horn ever unearthed at the site, according to attorney Brad Dacus of Pacific Justice Institute.
Upon examination of the horn under a high-powered microscope back at CSUN, Dacus says Armitage was “fascinated” to find soft tissue on the sample – a discovery Bacus said stunned members of the school’s biology department and even some students “because it indicates that dinosaurs roamed the earth only thousands of years in the past rather than going extinct 60 million years ago.”

While investigating the WHO and UN role in the biological weapons attack called the A-H1N1 (Swine Flu) pandemic of 2009, criminal intelligence (CI) agents from Canada and the US have stumbled upon a covert and sinister plan to kill off as many as 3 billion people by food malnutrition. The organization that is responsible for preparing for the murder of 3 billion people is called the Codex Alimentarius Commission. It was established in 1963 by the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Their officially stated purpose is to develop international food standards to protect consumer health and to facilitate fair trading practices in foods. Today, there are 181 member governments including Canada. CI agents have uncovered the real purpose of this WHO / UN organization – to murder 3 billion people. How will…

THIS UNWANTED AND UNTRUE AD POPS UP ON WORDPRESS BLOGS. DO NOT BE FOOLED, THIS IS A LIE! NO ONE WHO UNDERSTANDS FREEDOM OF SPEECH REALIZE THIS IS AN ABOMINATION! https://www.battleforthenet.com/?from=bottomBar WORDPRESS…STOP THIS AD !!!!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 52,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 19 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
I did some background checking into Michelle Obama and her links with socialists, communists and other high ranking radicals that wish nothing more than to destroy the United States as it is, and create a brand new United States! This may sound absurd and demeaning, but it is true. Some of the words spoken by Michelle Obama and her husband Barack Obama have come directly from a radical book titled Rules for Radicals by Saul D. Alinsky.
I’ll expose Alinsky’s background in future articles, but before we go too far, let us just start with Michelle Obama’s college days, since to find her high school history seems to be quite difficult. Michelle Obama’s maiden name was Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, and she was born on January 17, 1964. She married Barack Hussein Obama in 1992.
According to FrontPageMagazine reporter Jacob Laksin,
“In a [February 2008] interview with Newsweek, [Michelle] Obama reveals that she got into Princeton … not on the strength of her grades, which she admits were unexceptional, but thanks to her brother Craig, a star athlete and gifted student who preceded her to the school. As a ‘legacy’ candidate and a beneficiary of affirmative action, Michelle Obama was granted an opportunity that others more accomplished were denied.” The First lady got her college education due to her brother and her ethnicity, not her excellence in academics.
So why is she such a radical racist woman? It must come from somewhere in her background. Perhaps her parents were the ones who led her to this road of turmoil about racial prejudice. Let us take a brief look to see just what she was doing at Princeton while she was there and what types of people she had as her close friends. Some of Michelle Obama’s contacts in College were of the Marxist/socialist types.
