That Didn’t Take Long… Charlie Rangel Is First Lawmaker to Do Live Interview From Havana

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, December 18, 2014, 11:11 PM

Maybe he’s hunting for cheap condos?

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) cheered Barack Obama’s plan to resume relations with Cuba.
Rangel was in Havana for the broadcast with a medical association.
The Washington Times reported:

Rep. Charlie Rangel, New York Democrat, hailed President Obama’s announced plans Wednesday to resume diplomatic relations with Cuba while the congressman was on the ground in Havana.

Mr. Rangel said he was in the country with a medical association “to exchange advancements that have been made” on treatment for diabetes.

“I have never been more proud to be an American,” Mr. Rangel told CNN Wednesday afternoon. “The Cuban people are dancing in the street and so many members of Congress and Americans are proud of the president for taking this historic position.”

Mr. Rangel acknowledged criticism of the move, but said that “in any event, we’re moving forward, it’s all good, it’s all positive, and the people will be speaking from the streets of Havana, New York, in California, in Miami, and I think that’s the best cure for the relationship that’s been so poor in the last half-a-century.”

 

 

Paramount Cancels Screenings of “Team America” Due to Possible Security Threat

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, December 18, 2014, 9:16 PM

Capitol Theater in Dallas refused to let North Korea dictate our American Freedom to Speech. Thus, they not only plan to dial up the patriotism with a screening of “Team America” in lieu of “The Interview”… but also plan to hand out free toy guns.

Here is the infamous scene from “Team America” when Hans Blix from the UN comes to inspect Kim Jong Il’s palace in North Korea to see if he has weapons of mass destruction.

But then this happened…
Paramount cancelled the screening of Team America due to security threats.
What a sad day for Hollywood and America.

He Tried to Put Out a Dumpster Fire – So They Beat Him
beating victim ferguson

Just yesterday we reported on a man who was savagely beaten for attempting to put out a fire started by Michael Brown protesters.

Video has now emerged of the incident.
ferguson beating 3

In the video, you can see the gentleman attempting to put the fire out, saying “This is not how we do this.” You can hear others unintelligibly shouting things at him and calling him, “White boy”.

The protesters circle back around, apparently egged on by an over-caffeinated girl on her bike, saying, “You will get your A$$ beat!” Then others begin to assault the victim. Another kid shouts out, “We don’t need white saviors.”

(Warning on Language – Violence)

After the attack, the man shows other people his mouth, as 2 teeth were knocked out, and he is seen digging through the dumpster looking for his glasses.

SHOCK CLAIM: US Power Grid Already Hacked By Iranians, Chinese, Russians (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, December 18, 2014, 7:21 PM

Power grid

IT expert and former hacker David Kennedy told Greta Van Susteren tonight that a lot of experts in the internet security industry believe the Sony hack attack points to an insider at the company.

Tech expert David Kennedy explained that most corporations haven’t done what they needed to do to as an organization to protect themselves.

Kennedy told Greta when it comes to the US financial sector, they are trying really hard to keep the front door locked down to keep the hackers from breaking in. However, the US is losing the battle in the energy sector.

“The energy sector, unfortunately, and our water treatment facilities and everything we do from a general usability from a United States perspective is very vulnerable. They’re using old technology dating back to the 70’s. We need a major rehaul of our entire electrical grid and protection around that. We’re way worse off than anything near Sony. In fact the NSA director said as of last month that our entire energy grid had been owned or hacked by Iranians, by Russians, by China. Pretty much anybody has a foothold into our power grid right now.”

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Submits Request to Testify Against Obama Amnesty at Dec. 22 Hearing

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:17 PM

arpaio joe
Sheriff Joe won the first court battle over Obama’s executive amnesty.

A judge sided with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in the first legal clash in what is expected to be a major court fight over the legality of President Obama’s executive amnesty plan. Obama’s plan will effectively grant amnesty to 5 to 20 million illegal immigrants.

This week Sheriff Joe Arpaio submitted a request to testify at the December 22 hearing against Obama’s amnesty plan.
World Net Daily reported:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, has submitted a request for permission of a federal court in Washington to provide live testimony at a hearing for his lawsuit against President Obama’s executive immigration actions, which effectively grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

In a motion filed through his attorney, Larry Klayman of FreedomWatch, Arpaio argued his testimony is important to the Dec. 22 hearing on whether a preliminary injunction should be issued to halt Obama’s executive actions until the case can be heard.

Arpraio already had submitted a sworn affidavit regarding the increased costs, drain on resources, higher workload and greater risk he’s facing because of the “unconstitutional executive actions by President Obama.”

The White House had responded with an attack on his testimony, claiming Arpaio offers only “conclusory statements” and “speculative claims,” and “has not alleged any specific injury.”

Klayman wrote that while “these allegations are incorrect and simply strategic, Plaintiff Arpaio’s testimony would be in the interest of due process and to further justice, as well as create a full record for this court to confirm his standing to sue.”

Klayman said Arpaio “would also offer further testimony about the harm he and his office have suffered and will continue to suffer as a result of the unconstitutional executive actions at issue.”

 

SENIOR IRANIAN CLERIC: Iran Has Knowledge to Build Nuclear Bomb

Senior Iranian cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami told a group of military commanders in Iran’s Kurdistan Province that the regime attained the knowledge to build a nuclear bomb.

The Guardian reported:

An official site belonging to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has quoted a senior conservative cleric as saying that Iran has attained the knowledge to build a nuclear bomb but doesn’t want to use it.

The IRGC site of Kurdistan province today quoted Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, a leading cleric who often leads Friday prayers in Tehran, as telling a group of IRGC commanders in Iran’s Kurdistan province that Iran had the expertise to enrich uranium not just to the 5% and 20% levels required for civilian uses but to higher levels required for a bomb. “[We] can enrich uranium at 5% or 20%, as well as 40% to 50%, and even 90%,” he was quoted as saying. But he said the Islamic republic believed that the building of a bomb is religiously forbidden.

Turning to nuclear talks with world powers, Khatami said Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, had blocked any discussion of Iran’s missile programme because the United States did not follow principles. Khatami attacked the government of president Hassan Rouhani for trying to establish formal diplomatic relations with the US and for trying to eliminate the slogan of “Death to America” from use at official rallies.

Khamenei made a religious ruling in 2005 against the manufacture or use of nuclear weapons, although the fatwa’s validity and scope have been questioned by critics of Iran internationally.

Hat Tip Banafsheh Zand At Friday prayers on May 1, 2009, Iranian Ayatollah Khatami criticized Obama’s calls for talks and declared that Americans are not human beings
And, “Death to America.”

At least 18 businesses were torched to the ground and several more were looted and vandalized in November.

Her dedication to smear the judicial system and local cops earned Johnetta a regional position with Amnesty International.
The St. Louis American reported:

Johnetta Elzie has been hired as a field organizer for Amnesty International. She will organize in the Midwest, based in Chicago, with a mandate to recruit new activists to Amnesty and its causes with an eye toward diversity. Elzie has been active as an organizer and protester in the Ferguson protest movement and written about these experiences in Ebony magazine.

Earlier this month Johnetta and fellow Ferguson protest leaders were flown to New York to assist the Eric Garner protesters.
