About Them 72 Virgins. Something Got Lost In The Translation.

Abu al-Zarqawi died
( Just In case anyone is forgot, al-Zarqawi was the ass**** who brutally beheaded American civilian Nicholas Berg in Iraq. Nicholas Evan Berg (April 2, 1978 – May 7, 2004) was an American businessman seeking telecommunications work in Iraq after the US invasion of Iraq.

and George Washington met him at the Pearly Gates. He slapped him across the face and yelled, “How dare you try to destroy the nation I helped conceive!”

Patrick Henry approached, punched him straight in the face and shouted, “You wanted to end our liberties but you failed!”

James Madison followed with a back-hand, kicked him in the nuts and said, “This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!”

Thomas Jefferson was next, and he proceeded to beat al-Zarqawi with a long cane and snarled, “It was evil shit like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence, dammit!”

The beatings and thrashings continued as George Mason, James Monroe, John Hancock and 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the terrorist head honcho.

As al-Zarqawi lay bleeding and in pain, an Angel appeared. Al- Zarqawi wept and said, “This is not what you promised me, Allah! I was promised bliss in Heaven with 72 virgins!”

The Angel replied, “When I told you guys about ‘Allah’, I said specifically that there would be 72 Virginians waiting for you in Heaven. What did you think I said?”;

More Hollyweird Moonbats: Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem Denounce Israeli ‘Genocide’

idiots

The Hollywood Reporter: Dozens of Spanish film stars, directors, musicians and writers, led by Oscar winners Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Pedro Almodovar, have denounced Israel’s incursion into Gaza.

In an open letter referenced by Europa Press and other Spanish media, they described Israel’s actions as “genocide.” They also called on the European Union to “condemn the bombing by land, sea and air against the Palestinian civilian population in the Gaza Strip.”

In the open letter, they demanded a cease-fire by the Israeli military and urged Israel to “lift the blockade, which the Gaza Strip has suffered for more than a decade.”

The letter also said: “Gaza is living through horror these days, besieged and attacked by land, sea and air. Palestinians’ homes are being destroyed, they are being denied water, electricity [and] free movement to their hospitals, schools and fields while the international community does nothing.”

Others who signed the letter include directors Montxo Armendariz and Benito Zambrano; actors Lola Herrera, Eduardo Noriega and Rosa Maria Sarda; and musicians Amaral and Nacho Campillo.

The entertainers blamed the new round of violence in the Middle East on the occupation of Palestinian land by Israel, which, the letter said, “continues to advance into and invade the Palestinian territories instead of returning to the 1967 borders.”

Almost 1,100 Palestinians and 56 Israelis have died since the Israeli military began its bombardments of Gaza three weeks ago, according to the latest reports.

Bardem, who won the Oscar for supporting actor in 2008 for his role in No Country for Old Men, is a known political activist who frequently expounds on controversial issues. Cruz won an Oscar in the best supporting actress category in Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona in 2009.

The two are married and are good friends with Almodovar, who has won two Oscars: one for best foreign language film for All About My Mother (2000) and one for best original screenplay for Talk to Her (2002).

THR has reached out to reps for Bardem, Cruz and Almodovar and will update with any additional comment.

After denouncing the Israeli “genocide”, Cruz clarified her statement (she must have received an updated script):

“I don’t want to be misunderstood on this important subject. I’m not an expert on the situation and I’m aware of the complexity of it,” the actress said in a statement via her representative. “My only wish and intention in signing that group letter is the hope that there will be peace in both Israel and Gaza. I am hopeful all parties can agree to a cease fire and there are no more innocent victims on either side of the border. I wish for unity, and peace… I believe in a civilization that can be capable of bringing the courage to have a world where humans can live side by side.”

Now that these two have spoken, I’m sure there will be no more fighting. Just two more actors whose movies I have never paid to see, nor will I.

Wayne Allyn Root Puts aka-Obama at the Scene of the Crime

Wayne Allyn Root

I Can Put Obama at the Scene of the Crime
Posted by Wayne Root on July 28, 2014 Comments Off
As published at World Net Daily

By Wayne Allyn Root

My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class” launched Monday July 14th across America. It’s about how America, the greatest nation in world history, is being destroyed by the purposeful “Murder of the Middle Class” and death of the American Dream. It is not happening by accident, mistake, or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan. This is the greatest conspiracy in world history.

The ringleader is Barack Obama and I can put Obama at the scene of the crime.

How can I do that? I was Barack Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. You need to know about Obama and his plan to “murder the middle class” To stop it we first have to understand it.

First, at Columbia we were repeatedly told America is a land of “unfairness, inequality, and lack of social justice.” Recognize those words? My classmates proudly called themselves progressives and socialists, even Marxists. They talked about how to dismantle the “power structure”, the rich and the business owners- especially white ones. This is especially interesting since almost all my Columbia classmates were spoiled-brat white kids from the best prep schools in America, where their massive white guilt brainwashing started early.

We were taught to hate capitalism and believe it had to be destroyed so America’s wealth could be redistributed to create “fairness and equality.” Sound familiar?

At Columbia we studied “The Communist Manifesto,” Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and the Cloward and Piven plan to transform America.

In 1981 a student burst through the doors to our political science class and screamed “The President has been shot. They’ve assassinated Reagan”… my classmates yelled, hugged, high-fived, jumped up and down cheered (what they mistakenly thought was) the death of a Republican President. Today those classmates are in government with Obama, or controlling the mainstream media. They may talk about “moderation and compromise,” but remember, 30 years ago they cheered for the death of a Republican President.

Most importantly, we were taught a simple, but brilliant plan called “Cloward-Piven,” after former Columbia professors Richard Cloward and Frances Piven. The plan called for the destruction of capitalism and American exceptionalism by overwhelming the system with massive spending, entitlements and debt. That would collapse the economy, wipe out the middle class, and bring Americans to their knees, begging government to save them. Sound familiar? It’s the exact plan Obama has been implementing.

We were taught at Columbia a key component of the plan involved fooling the voters by calling yourself “moderate”, never admit your real goals. We were taught to demonize your opponents, calling them evil, greedy, extreme, radical, and even “terrorist.” Put your opponents on the defense by calling them the very things you are. Lie, misrepresent, and commit fraud because “The ends justify the means.” Obama learned well.

Obama claims Obamacare is about “saving the uninsured”, when its real objective is income redistribution to destroy the middle class. Environmental regulations are to “protect us from global warming,” when its real goal is bankrupting the middle class by tripling utility bills. Immigration reform is always about “protecting innocent children,” when its real goal is to create 12 million new Democratic voters. High taxes are to “create equality,” when they are all about starving Obama’s political opposition. Obscene government spending is always about “helping widows and orphans,” as opposed to creating more debt to overwhelm the system. Higher teacher salaries are “for the kids,” as opposed to enriching teachers unions so they can funnel hundreds of millions to Democrat politicians. Bailing out GM was to “save jobs,” as opposed to saving bloated auto union pensions.

It’s always about lying to cover-up the real agenda of murdering the middle class, redistributing wealth, and putting big government in control of our every move.

The key to it all is to “boil the frog slowly,” something we also learned at Columbia. Set the fire low, so the frog (in this case the middle class) wouldn’t know what was happening until he’s cooked.

That’s why Obama starts and ends every speech with “I’m here to save the middle class,” while his actions are annihilating them. He’s boiling the frog slowly. By the time the middle class realizes he’s the killer, and we’re the prey, we’ll already be dead.

So you see, it’s not due to coincidence, incompetence, or even George Bush. It’s all according to plan. A plan Obama learned at Columbia. Everything Obama does, and everything happening to the U.S. economy, all started at Columbia. The entire Obama agenda to overwhelm the system, destroy capitalism, and murder the middle class was hatched at Columbia. Obama may not have attended class, but he learned well. He should have received the Karl Marx Award for “Student Most Likely to Destroy America.”

That’s why Columbia matters. You must know your enemy before you can defeat him. Columbia University is a window into Obama’s soul. That’s why I’ve spent the last year writing the “Murder of the Middle Class,” to give all American’s the information and tools to save the middle class and the American Dream. This fight is just getting started. God Bless America.

UK boy, 4, has strange satanic mark on skin

The following story is from an UK tabloid, The Sun (via Malaysia Chronicle), of July 29, 2014, so read it with caution.

The significance of the article is in readers’ comments. They’re hilarious!

Samuel Jones14-year-old Samuel Jones, with his mom, pointing to the sign on his chest.

Boy, age 4, has mark of the DEVIL on his chest

The parents of a boy aged four were horrified when a “mark of the Devil” appeared on his chest.

Sharon Lewis and Robby Jones spotted the cross-hair imprint as they got son Samuel ready for bed.

Samuel Jones2The sinister sign is proving a devil to explain. The imprint has baffled his parents, teachers and even the family’s GP.

Shocked Sharon, 37, of Market Drayton, Shrops, said yesterday: “It’s a nightmare. Some people have said it’s the Symbol of Mammon — the sign of the Devil’s first born — which has been very upsetting. Just looking at it made me shake thinking something unnatural had visited my boy. Something or someone made the sign on him but we just can’t explain how.”

Sharon, an adult care worker, said there was no mark on Samuel when she gave him a bath and put him to bed on May 23. The lad dressed himself for school next morning and the couple spotted the symbol that night.

Sharon said: “I took off his uniform and there it was — two concentric circles with a cross through the middle. I asked Samuel if he’d had a bump at school or fallen over but he said ‘no’. He looked at it in the mirror and — like Robby and myself — could not explain it. Samuel suffers from a rare brittle bone disorder and we assumed he had slept with a toy or something pressing into him. But he said he hadn’t. We stripped off his sheets and found nothing.”

Fearing he had a skin infection or rash, Sharon of Market Drayton, Shrops, took him to her GP.

She said: “The doctor said it was not a rash, the mark was not sore and there was no surrounding reddening. He admitted he hadn’t a clue what it was. We were confused and frightened.”

When Samuel returned to school after the half-term break, Sharon asked his teachers at Hinstock Primary if they could explain it. But they knew of no incidents.

Worried Sharon put a picture of Samuel on Facebook asking what people thought the mark could be.

She even contacted a US website specialising in mysterious body marks and read claims of alien abductions. She said: “They asked me to do a questionnaire. One question was: ‘Have you seen objects in the sky you cannot identify?’ It felt strange getting involved in that stuff but we were, and still are, desperate to find the truth.”

Sharon, who has two children, Joe, 16, and Hannah, ten, from a previous relationship, said: “The whole thing has been a nightmare. You see this kind of thing on scary sci-fi films. It isn’t supposed to happen to families like us. Now we sleep with the landing light on and Samuel often comes into bed with me and Robby. I know it sounds crazy but I have found myself listening out for bumps in the night.”

The marking stayed on the right of Samuel’s chest for three weeks before finally fading on June 16.

Robby, 34, a plumber, said: “You can still make out a faint silvery outline of where it was.”

The symbol features in the 2005 Keanu Reeves film Constantine. A priest carves it into his hand after a nightmare.

Mammon is said to be one of the Seven Princes of Hell and used the cross-hair symbol as his calling card. He is associated with the deadly sin of greed. The symbol appears in Egyptian tomb paintings and carvings dating back to 1500BC and cave paintings in Italy apparently depicting visits by beings from outer space.

Below is a sample of hilarious readers’ comments on the Sun article:

Paul Taylor: “Who stole Obama’s mark”

Brian Young: “Nothing to worry about. The Anti-Christ is either playing golf or at a fundraiser.”

me: “Obummer must have come into his bedroom one night and left his ‘mark’.”

Rob Gunn: “If obama had a white son, after all he is half white”

Karen Cox Callahan: “Has Obama visited them recently?”

Biff Wellington: “What’s the big deal? The Anti-Christ was born in 1961, and is now running the US….or should I say ruining?”

cjccam: “Trouble is, this wouldn’t show up on Obama . . . but we all know its there.”

Ryan E: “The mark is in the wool on his dome”

Iowa newspaper fires editor for writing about Gaystapo on his personal blog

persecution-of-christiansThe war against Christians and Christianity isn’t just in Islamic countries of the Middle East and North Africa, it is now in America.

A newspaper editor in Iowa was fired from his job because he wrote IN HIS PERSONAL BLOG about his Bible-based beliefs on homosexuality being a sin.

It is against federal law for employers to discriminate against their employees on the basis of religious beliefs and practices. The Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VII, § 1605.1 says:

In most cases whether or not a practice or belief is religious is not at issue. However, in those cases in which the issue does exist, the [Equal Employment Opportunity] Commission will define religious practices to include moral or ethical beliefs as to what is right and wrong which are sincerely held with the strength of traditional religious views. This standard was developed in United States v. Seeger, 380 U.S. 163 (1965) and Welsh v. United States, 398 U.S. 333 (1970). The Commission has consistently applied this standard in its decisions. 1 The fact that no religious group espouses such beliefs or the fact that the religious group to which the individual professes to belong may not accept such belief will not determine whether the belief is a religious belief of the employee or prospective employee. The phrase “religious practice” as used in these Guidelines includes both religious observances and practices, as stated in section 701(j), 42 U.S.C. 2000e(j).

Robert Eschliman

Robert Eschliman

Daniel Finney and William Petroski report for The Des Moines Register, July 23, 2014, that Bob Eschliman, former editor of an Iowa newspaper, Newton Daily News, filed a complaint this week with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission office in Milwaukee claiming he is a victim of religious discrimination by his former employer because he was fired May 5 after publishing his views on homosexuals in his PERSONAL blog.

If the dispute isn’t resolved to Eschliman’s satisfaction, he could sue in federal court to seek financial damages.

In late April, Eschliman, 41, a member of Christian Reformed Church of Newton, Iowa, wrote a personal blog post criticizing the “Queen James Bible,” a website that rewrites sections of the Bible to make homosexuality acceptable. In his blog, Eschliman accused “the LGBTQXYZ crowd and the Gaystapo” of trying “to make their sinful nature right with God.”

Jim Romenesko

Jim Romenesko

Jim Romenesko, who hosts an eponymous widely-read online blog about the news media, reported on Eschliman’s post and questioned whether Eschliman, in light of his publicly stated views, would be able to fairly cover issues involving gays.

Romenesko claimed he had emailed Eschliman inquiring if he could report about homosexuality objectively because of his published views. Eschliman ignored Romenesko’s correspondence, but removed the post from his personal blog.

Shaw Media, a Dixon, Ill., company, suspended Eschliman with pay and eventually fired him. Eschliman’s attorneys claim that violated his constitutional rights of religious expression. Newton Daily News Publisher Dan Goetz declined to comment Wednesday.

John Rung

After Eschliman’s dismissal, the Newton newspaper published an editorial by Shaw Media President John Rung, who wrote: “Last week, he expressed an opinion in his personal blog that in no way reflects the opinion of the Newton Daily News or Shaw Media. While he is entitled to his opinion, his public airing of it compromised the reputation of this newspaper and his ability to lead it.”

The Liberty Institute, a Dallas nonprofit legal firm that advocates for religious freedom, has taken up Eschliman’s case. Jeremiah Dys, a senior lawyer with the Liberty Institute, told reporters at a news conference Wednesday that he believes Eschliman has a strong case. He was joined by former U.S. Attorney Matt Whitaker, who now has a private law practice and will also be representing Eschliman. Whitaker said, “No one should be fired for simply expressing his religious beliefs. In America, it is against the law to fire an employee for expressing a religious belief in public. This kind of religious intolerance by an employer has no place in today’s welcoming workforce.”

Eschliman, a Boone native and U.S. Navy veteran who is married with two young children, has worked as a writer and editor for seven different companies, garnering almost 70 journalism awards. Seven awards came while he was editor in chief of the Newton newspaper, according to his attorneys.

But Eschliman said Wednesday that he has had difficulty finding employment since his dismissal, “particularly here in Iowa.” He said his writing, which some considered objectionable, was posted on a personal blog that was read mainly by family members and friends.

Mark Kende, a constitutional law professor at Drake University, said that at first glance, it appears that Eschliman has a potential case, “I am not saying the newspaper does not have an attempted defense, but federal laws generally prohibit discrimination on the basis of religion.” Kende described the case as untypical because the behavior in question occurred outside the workplace.

Eschliman “is arguing that they are firing him for his religious beliefs, and to the extent that the comments he made are based on his religion, that doesn’t seem frivolous,” Kende said. “But having said that, if I were the company, I would say that we are not firing him for his religious beliefs. We are firing him because his job is to be an impartial reporter, and as an impartial reporter he has lost his credibility, so it has nothing to do with his religion.”

Donna Red WingDonna Red Wing, executive director of One Iowa, the state’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender advocacy organization, said she takes religious liberties and the rights of journalists very seriously, noting she worked previously in Washington, D.C., as chief of staff of the Interfaith Alliance. But she also said Eschliman’s comments overstepped boundaries, describing his use of the term “Gaystapo”as horrific and suggesting he failed in his responsibility to be fair and objective.

“Certainly, his bosses at Shaw Media did what they felt they needed to do. I find his words disconcerting,” Red Wing said. “I am not a lawyer, but if he were working for me, I would fire him.”

Meet the people Obama doesn’t want to come to America

Obama gives America the finger

FoxNews: Earlier this month President Obama called the tsunami of illegal immigrants crossing the border “the best and the brightest.”

We shouldn’t be making it harder for the best and the brightest to come here, create jobs here, grow our economy here,” the president told new U.S. citizens at a White House ceremony. “We should make it easier.”

In the shadow of the illegal immigrant crisis at America’s southern border, the Obama administration continues to hold highly skilled and educated workers wishing to come to the U.S. and work for American companies to the strict regulations of its H-1B visa program, while moving toward a policy that grants work visas to the American-born children of immigrants who come here illegally.

One of those individuals is Waghmare Vishal, a computer programmer from India. Vishal is a senior engineer for Maxxton USA, a software company based in Dallas. Vishal, who lives in India, applied for a visa so he could help Maxxton expand their business interests in the United States. But the State Department turned down Vishal’s visa.

“The consulate thought that he was a risk because he might not go back to his home country,” said Chris Connar, Maxxton’s vice president for sales and marketing. “It’s frustrating – very frustrating. This is a government-sanctioned problem.”

In layman’s terms – the State Department feared that Vishal might not go back to India once his visa expired. “A consular officer looks at the purpose of the visit and for palpable reasons a person would return to his or her own country,” a State Department official wrote to Maxxton.

Connar said the very values that made Vishal an ideal candidate for the job – were in fact the reasons he was denied entry. “He doesn’t have any family,” Connar said. “He’s willing and able to travel.”

Connar said Vishal has been a longtime employee and he was only going to be in the states for a few months “traveling around to our different customers and helping them implement our software program.”

There’s no way for Vishal to appeal the ruling. Instead, the State Department advised him to reapply. Connar said it’s mind-blowing. “[The government] should be cracking down on the illegals — not the people who are trying to come here legally,” he said.

And that brings me to the story of a newlywed couple from Denver. They’ve asked me not to use their names over fears it might further complicate their citizenship issues.

The husband is an American. His wife is British. She applied for a spouse visa in April 2013. As of this writing, they are still waiting for an approval.

“The whole process has been a disaster,” the British bride tells me. “It is near impossible to get any information or time estimates.”

The State Department demanded that the bride prove she would not be a financial burden to the country. No, really.

The bride has an English degree. Her husband is the co-owner of a store in the Denver area. She said they were required to prove that they made enough money to live above the poverty threshold. “This is all to show that the immigrant spouse won’t become a financial burden on the country,” she said.

Meanwhile, the federal government also required our blushing bride to undergo a rigorous series of medical exams – totaling $500. “I was told that if I didn’t get that done, I wouldn’t get my visa,” she said.

So you might imagine her frustration at she watches the Obama administration allow thousands of disease-infected illegals into the country – and then provides them with medical care – compliments of the American taxpayer. “I find the whole process so very unfair,” the bride told me. “I don’t understand why it’s one rule for one person and another rule for another.”

In President Obama’s mind, illegal immigrants represent the best and the brightest, but those coming here legally should be treated with scorn and suspicion.

It’s been 15 months and we are still waiting — whilst others get to take a shortcut and leave those of us who are trying to do the right and legal thing behind,” the bride said. “At the end of the day, I just want to be with my husband and live our lives.”

But to make matters even worse — the bride’s temporary visa is about to expire. That means she will have to leave her husband in Denver and return to England. “I love it here and I want to have a future here,” she told me. “I am educated and have lots of work experience. I want to work and pay taxes and I have no intention to be a ‘financial burden’ to anyone.”

For now the British bride and the Indian computer programmer are stuck in limbo — trying to figure out the best way to get to the United States.

Perhaps they should consider purchasing a one-way ticket to Guatemala, cross the border into Mexico and then hop onboard the first northbound train to Texas.

Labor unions pass resolution defending cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal

Cop killer Abu-Jamal

Cop killer Abu-Jamal

EAGnews.org: A collection of labor unions is demanding that leaders of California’s Oakland Unified School District allow a lesson plan that compares convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal to civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to appear on the district’s website.

In a resolution passed on July 14, the Alameda Labor Council condemned Oakland Unified school leaders for censoring the pro-cop killer lesson plan, entitled “Urban Dreams,” and accused them of buckling to the intimidation tactics of the Fraternal Order of Police and Fox News.

The Alameda Labor Council – which is affiliated with the AFL-CIO – is an umbrella organization that coordinates the political activities of more than 100 unions, including the Berkley Federation of Teachers and the California School Employees Association.

“ … (I)t is dangerous and unacceptable to allow the police to determine the curriculum of a major school district like Oakland, or any school district,” the group declares in its resolution.

The Alameda Labor Council, on the other hand, sees nothing dangerous about Mumia Abu-Jamal who was convicted of killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner on Dec. 9, 1981.

As EAGnews reported earlier this year:

(Abu-Jamal) was working as a cab driver for extra money that evening, and was apparently parked along a city street when he witnessed his brother, William Cook, being pulled over by Faulkner in a traffic stop. Abu-Jamal left his vehicle and intervened, a struggle ensued, and both he and Faulkner were shot.

Abu-Jamal claimed an unidentified person arrived on the scene, shot Faulkner and fled. Three witnesses testified that they saw Abu-Jamal shoot the officer.

Abu-Jamal was convicted of murder in 1982 and sentenced to death. He spent 30 years in Death Row before an appeals court lowered the sentence to life in prison with no chance of parole in 2012.

Meanwhile, he’s become a cult hero to thousands on the extreme political left.

In its resolution, the Alameda Labor Council maintains that Abu-Jamal is innocent of killing Faulkner and defends the “Urban Dreams” curriculum as “invaluable” for teaching students to think critically about social justice.

Specifically, the “Urban Dreams” lessons ask students to “critically examine a possible parallel between Martin Luther King, Jr., and someone else many believe is currently targeted by the U.S. government, Mumia Abu-Jamal.”

Many left-wingers believe Abu-Jamal has been unfairly singled out for punishment because the convicted cop killer is “an outspoken critic of the corruption and racism of the American legal system and both parties of American capitalism.”

The left-wing activists compare Abu-Jamal’s views to King’s “radical politics (that) were evident in his last years of his growing collaboration with Black Power leaders, his leading of study sessions … on socialism, his support of the movement against the Vietnam War and his challenge to U.S. militarism, declaring at Riverside Church that the U.S., ‘my own country,’ was ‘the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today.’”

“It’s an absolute disgrace that they’re trying to make any comparison,” Maureen Faulkner, the police officer’s widow, told Fox News earlier this year.

“It’s a travesty,” Faulkner continued. “You’re going to teach children about a man who murdered a police officer? That’s not a good lesson to be teaching children. He was a radical, a militant. My question is: Are our tax dollars paying for this?

As long as Oakland Unified school leaders stand strong, tax dollars won’t be used to spread pro-Abu-Jamal propaganda. But, as the recent Alameda Labor Council resolution makes clear, the radicals running today’s labor unions aren’t going to accept defeat so easily.

And Today We Bring You The Latest On Kim Jong-Un

Go ahead. I don't care.  :)

Go ahead. I don’t care. :)

Seoul (AFP) – A top-ranking North Korean military official has threatened a nuclear strike on the White House and Pentagon after accusing Washington of raising military tensions on the Korean peninsula.

The threat came from Hwang Pyong-So, director of the military’s General Political Bureau, during a speech to a large military rally in Pyongyang Sunday on the anniversary of the armistice that ended the 1950-53 Korean War.

Hwang, who holds the rank of vice marshal in the Korean People’s Army, said a recent series of South Korea-US military drills, one of which included the deployment of a nuclear-powered US aircraft carrier, had ramped up tensions.

“If the US imperialists threaten our sovereignty and survival… our troops will fire our nuclear-armed rockets at the White House and the Pentagon — the sources of all evil,” Hwang said in his speech broadcast Monday on state television.

It is not the first time that North Korea’s bellicose rhetoric has included threats of nuclear strikes on the continental United States and US bases in the Pacific.

But most experts believe it is still a long way from developing a viable intercontinental ballistic missile with the required range.

“Higher” education: Ohio State core class teaches Christians are dumber than atheists

OSU-psych-question-2014
Campus Reform: An Ohio State University (OSU) class has apparently determined another fundamental difference between Christians and atheists: their IQ points.

An online quiz from the school’s Psychology 1100 class, provided to Campus Reform via tip, asked students to pick which scenario they found most likely given that “Theo has an IQ of 100 and Aine has an IQ of 125.” The correct answer? “Aine is an atheist, while Theo is a Christian.”

According to a student in the class who wished to remain anonymous, the question was a part of an online homework quiz. Students were required to complete a certain amount of quizzes throughout the course but were encouraged to finish all of them in order to prep for the final exam.

“I understand that colleges have a liberal spin on things so it didn’t surprise me to see the question, which is a sad thing,” the student told Campus Reform in a phone interview. “But how can you really measure which religion has a higher IQ?”

Psychology 1100 is a general education requirement class which can primarily be taught by an undergraduate teacher’s assistant.

While the student said the quizzes were based on the textbook used in class, an OSU employee in the psychology department who wished to remain nameless said quizzes are oftentimes created by the teacher’s assistant.

The employee added that the psychology department is “very open to talking with students” if they are worried about grading or a question on an exam.

OSU explicitly prohibits discrimination on campus against any individual based on “age, ancestry, color, disability, gender identity or expression, genetic information, military status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, HIV status, or veteran status,” according to the university’s policy.

“Colleges will tolerate pretty much any religion other than Christianity,” the OSU student said. “If colleges really want to give everyone a fair shot, they should stay away from making comments about any religion.”

Dr. Mike Adams, an outspoken conservative Christian professor at the University of North Carolina, said “every group is protected from offensive speech on campus except for conservative Christians.”

Adams also added that applying this principle to other types of groups would be taboo on college campuses. “So would it be permissible to force blacks to take a class teaching that blacks would have a lower IQ than white people?” he said in an interview with Campus Reform.

This isn’t the first time a researcher has used psychology to suggest those with more social conservative or even religious values have lower IQ scores. A 2011 study published in Psychological Science claimed that “lower general intelligence…in childhood predicts greater racism in adulthood, and this effect was largely mediated via conservative ideology.”

“When science arose, it arose in the West and it did so in Christian nations. It did so because Christianity—with its assumptions about an orderly universe and its emphasis on obtaining knowledge as a cultural value—[was] necessary for science to develop and to flourish,” Adams said. “That anti-Christian bigots use science to attack Christianity is more than Pharisaic hypocrisy. It is deeply ingrained institutional bigotry.”

OSU declined to comment to Campus Reform for this story.

Well, OSU is just being good little commies after all:

goals

  • #17: Get control of the schools.
  • #27: Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity (which is ironic since this generation is self-absorbed [#me!] and has postponed maturation).
